Because the Star had the temerity, boldness and honesty of purpose suf ficient to tell Gov. Carlson in plain language that he had >mistreated the Negroes of Colorado, and because we had fearlessness enough to criticize ex-Governor Harper, the Star lost the printing of 15 reports' ot insurance, ■ranging about $1G0. vVe were told that if we laid down our fight upon Carlson and support him we would be taken care of. We told them if that was their price for us to pay. we would rather lose all than swallow Carlson after his treatment of the Negro. We secured one report be cause of the special request of the company to have it > published in the ■ Star. The democrats for two years straight gave the Star 12 and last year, through Mr. John F. Vivian, we secured 1G. We are not complaining because several weeks ago, before we started our fight, we told you that if we did our full duty to the race it would cost us nearly $200. We told you then we would pay the price. Ex- Eieutenant Governor, Commissioner of Insurance Harper did not know that there were some Negroes whom he could not “Jim Crow” asi he has his messenger; he did not know that all Negroes would not grin, lick-spit tle, knee-bend and go with hat in hand and beg him for some insurance crumbs Some day we may have the honor and opportunity to favor him. He did not know that Allison Stocker stands as high above Gov. Carlson in brains, executive ability and expe rience in handling big things, as Mayor Speer does over Booth, or as Pike’s Peak stands high over Chey enne mountain. Negroes of Colorado, the Star is paying the price for you and I, to be men, real men. respected as such. Soon You will be called upon to pay the price of friendly appreciation shown you by two exemplary men, Pitcher and Sharpley, who have made 15 appointments of Negroes against two. What will you do; will you be bought off and led away and leave them and the 15 men and their fami les exposed to the Carlson-Nisbet treachery? We hope you will pay your honest debt in full. When you see Massa Harper, eye him good and take his mental and physical meas ure, sending him a few telephatic messages of your innermost thoughts and feelings. He believes in the tatt ling, spineless Negroes and cannot help it. Pay the price—we did. We fought ourselves in and we will fight •ourselves out or die fighting in our tracks. A copper headed republican is more deadly than our bitterest ene my. " What’s the difference in principle between men who permit the Birth of a Nation and men who support the man who permitted it. Both are ene mies of the Negro, white or black. GRAND JUNCTION NEWS. By Carl Campbell. The Friendship Chapter, O. E. S„ meet at their hall every second and fourth Thursday.

GEORGE G. ROSS. Sworn to and subscribed before me this 23rd day of March, 191 G. ALEXANDER A. WALLER, CSeal) Notary Public. My commission expires August 9th, 1916. LISTEN. Don’t forget the grand entertain ment given by the Masons at East Turner hall, Easter Monday night, April 24th. Feature the McDaniel Sisters and company in their latest craze, “Spirella Johnson from Mem phis, Tenn.” FIVE POINTS “TRUST BUSTER” AND GOOD ADVICE. The proprietor of the Welton St. fruit and vegetable store succeeded in demonstrating to the public that HE will run his own store, giving articles away if he so desires. The Meadow Gold butter people objected to him selling their butter for 35c a pound when he paid them 34c and therefore would not sell him as long as he charged 35c. He appealed to the dis trict attorney’s office and forced them to sell him. Ae a result his patrons get the benefit of his close selling. Hurrah for the Welton fruit man. We only wish we had more like him. By the way, the Star urges that the Ne groes only spend their money in three grocery stores in Five Points which advertise with Negroes. There is our own O. W. Glenn, who has first class goods and sella as reasonable as any. Then there Is the Five Points Meat Market and the Welton Fruit Store, who spend their money with us. We in turn spend and divide our money among four at our office, who spend it with the churches and colored busi ness places. But when you spend it with otherB who care nothing for your welfare, we never get a chance at that money. Why not help us to help others? It costs you no more. Just aak your grocer if he advertises in A COLORED PAPER before you buy. See what great effect it will hare. The thing you nead I've got—aak Hinkle. York 9068 W. GEO.
