I do not hesitate to make plain to
you that the above is just what the
Afro-American is to us. He is our
younger brother, and as such we are
bound not alone by the law of recld
procity to see that he has every edu
cational advantage, but by the law of
family and home ties.
"Wisdom is justified of her chil
"There is he that knows and knows I
that he knows; he is wise; follow
him." This I know to be the Afro
American's attitude as regards the
white race, and they are following
us as closely as their disadvantages I

How affectionately they adhere to
the old party simply because Mr. Lin
coin presided in that party at the
time of their release from bondage;
and many of them today respect the 1
republican party because it is reput
ed to be composed of the moneyed
class, and they are caught by the
glamor of wealth, and they do well!
I would say to them to vote the
workingman's party ticket-the so
cialist ticket, but hesitate to do so
because the working white man is
so antagonistic to the colored man.
and I ~il u.:~ see him insulted more
than he has already been. But let
me tell you, my white brother, if
you ever win as socialists you will
have to use a little common sense
and exhibit it toward your colored
brother. If you ever win their votes
it will be done through decent usage
in everyday affairs, and by that
means you may get near enough to
him to teach him your ideas on the
political question. He is a born plu
tocrat by virtue of his early tutor
ing and his object lessons gained
then from the white race are going
to fade not readily.
The Afro-American today is your
equal intellectually and physically.
and will listen to reason if you will
lay aside your ignorant prejudices
long enough to make a friend of him.
His vote is not to be despised ,ven
now. You are making a terrible mis
take not to take him into your laborl
unions and all other unions of pub
lic worth where your interests are
centered. You will have it to 1do
sooner or later if you win; better !e

From numerical status of the neg
ro: "Those who have predicted that
the negro race, because of essential
Inferiority, would ultimately die out
as a result of unprotected contact
with the vices of the white civill
sation, will not find their theories
supported by the returns of the cen
sus of 1900. From the figures at
hand it seems that the negro pop
ulation of the United States was then
. little over 9,000,000. The ratio that
the negro bore to the total was 11.9."
Because of the prejudice against
him through the South by the white
laboring class his children being de
prived of the opportunity of working
in the mills, are attending school
while the white children are at work.
We have told him that he must
educate and he is doing so. The few
examples already set before him of
what nature in his own race are
abundant proofs of what education
will do for all: i. e., Booker T. Wash
ington, M. A., president of Tusko
tee Institute, honored by a degree by
Yale; Blanche K. Bruce, formerly
United States senator from Missis
sippi; Judge W. Lyons, register of
the treasury, Washington, D. C.; W.
P. Cheatham, recorder of deeds for
the District of Columbia, and a num
ber of others not necessary to men
tion. Sumce to say these are stand
ing witnesses of what education and
education alone will do for them,
when without it they are worse than
slaves, for to be enslaved to one's
own ignorance is to be enslaved in

"Two hearts with but a single
thought." This wal demonstrated
last Sunday night, when Mr. W. M.
Ellison and Miss Annie Jones, who
were united in the holy bonds of
matrimony. Mr. Ellison is from
Springfield, Mo., and has been out
West about five years. He has
proved himself to be a straightfor
ward. upright gentleman, and has
won for himself many friends, among
both white and colored, who wish
him a successful and happy voyage
upon the ocean of life. Miss Jones
came here about a year and a half
ago with her parents, from Kansas
City. Mo. She has proved herself to
be one of the choicest flowers of the
garden. and Mr. Ellison is to be
complimented upon his success. May
the pathway of their life be ever
strewn with honey-succles of love,
and may their home be a heaven of
rest, is the wish of the New Age.

TUTTLE WATCH TALK
Watches are not like wine-they do not improve with age. As well
give a caledar for 1890 as a Christmas present in 1902 as a watch that is
as much out of date as the calendar. Ours is positively the only entire
ly new, high-grade stock of Watches in the city-it is large and covers a
wide range in values. Investigation will prove that for accurate move
ments, in new and b- autiful cases, our prices are the lowest. In fact,
they are really lower than the out-of-date kind can be bought for else.
