We have asked the senator for a copy of his bill which we are told intends to put the Porto Ricans in slav ery to American customs and preju dice. We advise every Negro who reads this article to write Senator Shafroth for a copy of his bill and then study it. Remember, Senator Shafroth comes up soon for re-elec tion.

Everybody get the Col lier’s Weekly of Jan. 27th and read the ‘.‘Negro” by Julian Street. It’s worth reading. Housewives, has it* ever occurred to you that you could help the race by hiring Negro Ash haulers and keep that 50 cents w’ithin the race line? The reason that the American Wood men today can hire nearly 10 persons Is that other Negroes have made it possible with their money. Have you helped them or the Western Life or the Union Health and Accident Co., that employs all white. Why can't you take the hint and let your small earnings build up your own race to the end that our young race girls can be employed? Why not? CITY NEWS. Mrs. Wm.

Dr. Robert R. Moton le Optimistic. Dr. Robert It. Moton, principal of the Tuskegee (Ala.) institute, in dis cussing the migration of large num bers of colored people from the south to the north says: “Sooner or later the farmers, bust ness men and scientists are going to get together very seriously, and the boll weevil Is bound to be exterminat ed. Then cotton will continue as ‘king and the Negro who remains and helps to fight tbe boll weevil pest will share richly In the production of cotton and other forms of prosperity which are sure to come in the south. We must make op our minds that our chances for work, for homemakiug and for de veloping are just us good in Alabama as anywhere e’se in the world.’*’ Contrasting Racial Opportunities. Notwithstanding the many handicaps of the colored people in their efforts to better their condition, they are making considerable progress. Besides the small pay they get for their services, they are handicapped in the education of their children, especially in the south, where the rural school term Is not more than half as long as those in the north. Nevertheless the majority of the ablest members of tbe race In tellectually are natives of the south. The hoys and girls and young men and worneo of the north and their par ents, in view of the above, should make full use of their opportunities.

ROMAN’S SPEECH AT LOUISVILLE, KY. Justice and Liberty Ara For All, Says Scholarly Physician. ! In concluding liis address before the r local branch of the National Associ ation For the Advancement of Colored I People at Louisville, Ky., Dr. C. V. Roman of Nashville, Tenn., quoted President Wilson as having said in a recent address delivered in New York: “Peace is going to come to the world , only with liberty.” “Truer words never were spoken. As , long as men refuse to be Just, so long will nature deny them justice. As long 1 as men' desire to oppress, so long will men suffer oppression. Justice and liberty are for all or for none. Let us help the white man to find freedom and justice, for where his is there is ours also. “According to the philosopher Kant, there are three kinds of judgment problematic, assertory and appodictic. To reach the truth we must be careful not to confuse these different kinds of judgments, for they are of very differ ent evidential value. In plain Ameri can newspaper English, they are guesses, opinions and facts. “While everybody recognizes a guess, many intelligent people confuse facts and opinions. A disregard of facts is usually joined to a tenacious adherence to personal opinion. Out of this posi tion grow most controversies. The present condition of Europe is n splen did illustration. It is evident that the value of a fact depends upon its inher ent worth and has nothing to do with the character or intelligence of its dis coverer or presenter. Now, the very opposite is true of opinions. The value of a man’s opinions depends not only upon his honor, but upon his intelli gence; not only upon his willingness to tell the truth, but his ability to do so. “I ask the American public to scan carefully the character of negrophobes. Personally I have never found one that was both intelligent and honest. These qualities are plentiful among negro phobes, but they are always separate. As soon as you mix them negrophobia disappears. The honest ones are ig noraut, and those that are not ignorant are not honest. Compare Senator Var danian and lion. Henry Watterson on the race question. “To live appreciatively in the world requires perspective. The chief con stituent of social efficiency is intelli gent sympathy or good will. Sympa thy as a desirable quality is something more than mere feeling; it is a culti vated imagination for what men have in common and a rebellion at what ever unnecessarily divides them. Seg regation is an enemy of progress. In the seventeenth and eighteenth verses of the sixteenth chapter of his letter to the Romans St. Paul says: “ ‘Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and of fenses contrary to the doctrine which we have learued and avoid tuem. “ ‘For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly, and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.’ ” DOUGLASS FUND CAMPAIGN.

Stevens, pastor, is enjoying a season of great spiritual awakening. The series of special gospel meetings which were be gun the third week in January have been productive of much good.
