"Let us have faith that right makes might, and in that faith let us to the end dare to do our duty as we under stand It.”—Abraham Lincoln. Amendment No. 1 Means Greater Ef ficiency and Higher Standard, Col ored Policemen and Firemen Ben efit. Denver, Colo., May 2, 1917. To The Denver Star: Dear Friends: We take the liberty of addressing you concerning the pe tition for an amendment to the Char ter of the City and County of Denver in the interest of our FIREMEN and POLICEMEN and earnestly solicit your sincere an dactive support of this amendment. We have been forced to bring this issue before you. because as servants of the people they are the only ones possessing the power to raise our sal ary to a standard in keeping with the present high cost of living. The standard of an American city is no higher than that of Its protection and safety as carried out by its police and lire departments. A man's ethical standards are no higher than his home surroundings, therefore you are respectfully asked to help us keep our home surround ings up to a standard that will be commensurate with the standard of our beautiful city. YOU CAN DO THIS BY VOTING for our petition on May loth —it is first one on the ballot. Wages are being Increased by all of the corporations and cities of the country—they realize that by so doing that they are increasing the efficiency of their employees. Let us not fall behind them in this or any other re spect. WE, YOUR COLORED FIREMEN AND POLICEMEN sincerely trust you will take the time to interest your selves in this matter and vote for our amendment on MAY 15TH —we need your assistance. Very respectfully, SPECIAL PUBLICITY COMMITTEE, THE DENVER FIRE AND POLICE ASSOCIATION. The Star feels deeply grateful to receive this communication from such an important and worthy body repre senting such practicable and worthy objects and we pledge to them our heartiest support for the success of that amendment. We are deeply in terested and have been for some time in the affairs of our own policemen and firemen. We have thought often of the vacancy left by our lamented Ike Gilmore. Now, when it comes tc helping our own with others get an in creased pay in order to maintain the usual standard of efficiency with rep resentative home surroundings, espe dally during this period when higl cost of living is touching every home and when enemies within are liable a' any time to burn and set fires to ever; and everything. The Star thinks tha it is the least of its duty to urge oth ers to help our own by helping them selves. Now, Negroes of Denver,, vote for Amendment No. 1. Put a pin ii that. A vole for No. 1 means a vote for every Negro in Denver. Churches lodges, homes and business places are all alike affected. Therefore, tall voting for No. 1 to white and black. VOTE FOR CLEM F. CROWLEj for Auditor; Wm. H. Wright for Elcc tion Commissioner and Andy Horan First, be loyal and vote for the in terest of your Colored Firemen and Policemen and not againet them. Vote for Amendment No. 1 and Horan. KNOW MEN BY THEIR COLORS—THEN ACT. Denver, Colo., May 10, 1917. To the Denver and Colored Y’oters of District Eight. Greetings: I hereby announce to you my candi dacy for councilman of this district and earnestly desire your support thereof. I have lived among you for years and have always been your well wisher; if ever the occasion arises, I shall be your defender in the council and out of it. I am proud of my district and my city; if I were not I would not take part in a couneilmanic race. I am proud of the residents of my district, both white and colored; if I were not I would not be asking your support. To the most of you I am not a stranger: 1 will not be a stranger if elected to your council. I believe in the future of the "Five Points" District; hoping that you also believe, I am, ladies and gentlemen. Yours sincerely, ANDREW HORAN, Candidate for City Council, Eighth District. What better evidence do you want than these sentiments published to world as his thoughts? Who put the electric light in front of Old Zion Bap tist Church? Andy Horan. Ask An drew Riley. If Andy Horan was elect ed for 11 years to the council and Mr. Spacy was appointed by the Mayor, who was more independent, Mr. Ho ran, elected by the people who elected the Mayor or the man appointed to do the bidding of the person who did the appointing? Could not Mr. Spacy eas ily say now the white people of the east side and Home Owners’ Taxpay ing Association elected and they want “Jim Crowism” and as a Tennessean I am going to give it to them by intro ducing in the council such a measure. For God’s sake, Negroes, take no chances. The Star has always and even fought in the open. We believe in Horan and if you don’t know him like we do, FOLLOW US by electing him. Mayor Speer has just given Roy E. Maxwell, a patrol man’s star and at once, Andy Horan, who had been a policeman years ago, congratulated Maxwell. Vote Horan, all the time. If you increase all the city employ ees’ salary by different amendments, why not increase the firemen and po licemen salary by voting for Amend ment No. 1? Why? VOTE FOR CLEM F. CROWLEY for Auditor; Wm. H. Wright for Elec tion Commissioner and Andy Horan. First, be loyal and vote for the in terest of your Colored Firemen and Policemen and not against them. Advertisement TO THE NEGRO VOTERS OF DENVER. After a thorough and impartial investigation of the several amend* merits to the city charter and certain candidates to be voted upon at the election next Tuesday, we make the following recommendations. For the reason herewith briefly stated, Vote For Amendment No. 2, giving the Council authority to regulate salaries of all city employees, as said, amendment covers all requests and demands relating to wages contained in other amendments, and is far more equitable. Vote for Amendment No. 3, enabling the water question to be disposed of at one subsequent election, saving to tax-payers some $35,000. Vote for Amendment No. 6, removing the election commission out of the domain of partisan polities and saving the tax-payers $20,000 annually and electing H. B. Teller, Elec* tion Commissioner. We most urgently request that Hon. Clement F. Crowley be voted for as City Auditor. Mr. Crowley's attitude towards us is so well and generally known that he should have an unanimous Negro vote. Vote for Amendments No. 2, 3 and 6, and vote No on all others. Vote one choice and only one. THE COLORED CITIZENS NON-PARTISAN LEAGUE, By the Committee: Jas. J. Manuel, P. E. Spratlin, M.
