PAYING THE PRICE OF MANHOOD.
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
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

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.
