r Changing Issues.
'Political issues have decidedly
c·hanged within the past few years.
All ('lasses of citizens seem to
realize it except the Negro. He
still votes under the influence of
1s;:i6 and the abolition of slavery.
)Our people are apparently stand
ing with their mack to the future,
gazing in rapture at the fast-de
elining rays of a setting sun.
The principles and isms of our
early freedom have long since be
~colme history. New questions of
public policy occupy the stage
and we must face about and un
derstand them. Over at Washing
ton just now the spectacle of the
I ouse and Senate endeavoring to
"revise the tariff downward" so
as to take the wind out of Demo
eratic sails, and yet keep it hign
enough to satisfy "the interests"
and protect American Labor. And 1
this is the kernel of the nut. In
this "protection to American
Labor" the Negro has no lot or
interest. The colored orators
sent out by the party bosses still
tell the dolorous story of emanci
ipation and Democratic hypocrisy.
If it were possible to eliminate a
few discredited fireeaters from I
the D)emocratic party, the best- I
trained Negro with a microscope
could not find the line of differ- 1
ence between the two old parties
on the race question. The race
question only crops out, like the
conver ;ent ghost of the Witch of
Endor, when called forth. The 1
trust, the tariff and American la
bor is the absorbing topic at pres- I
ent and it behooves the Afro- t
American orators to get busy t
along these lines. 1
The great struggle of tomorrow t
will be between labor, organized a
and unorganized, on the one hand, t
and combined capital on the o
other. A few years ago the world
roared with laughter when Ig- t
natius Donnelly in his "Caesar's d
Column" drew the dismal picture b
of the coming struggle. But those 11
who have followed the trend of "
events can see the shadow of com- 0
ing trouble. Where will the Negro c'
be in the struggle?
Organized Labor and the
The struggle between labor and
capital has been of long stand
ing. Organized labor is centuries
old. In its inception it knew no
race; no creed; no nothing, but
the betterment of the laboring
class. In this day organized labor
is for the uplift of the working
man, and has done much to make
his arduous conditions more bear
able. But it is no longer the all
inclusive organization of yore. It
is for the laboring man-but more
especially the white man. It is
notorious that almost every labor
union bars the Negro, and meagre
are his chances for a place as an

apprentice. The union secures
better hours, better wages, and
strives to raise the standard of
workmanship. To all these bene
f'ts the Negro is excluded. We
know much of labor unions in the
West. Out here almost every form
of labor is organized and then
federated. And from these unions,
excsept hod-carriers, the Negro is
barred. The Negro is a strong,
sturdy laborer, possessing excep
tional mental capacity and physi
cal energy and endurance. With
out the careful training of an ap
preinticeship, whe' given a chance,
he soon acquires remarkable tech
nical knowledge of any trade. The
great mass of the Negroes are la
borers. They are a very potential
factor in the labor market. Where
will they be in the coming strug
gle? Excluded from the unions,
and hounded by the petty, spite
fa! hatred of ignorant labor elac
quer., will they stand shoulder
to shoulder with those "who toil
in the heat of the day," or will
they be forced to those "who toil
not, neither do they spin"f
Ignorant Prejudice.
Elsewhere on this page we re
produce an editorial comment
from the Miners' Magazine relat
ing to the very recent decision of
the Georgia Board of Arbitration
in the case of railroads employing
Negro firemen. It is a splendid
rebuke to the carping prejudice
of the labor union and a strong
appeal to the manhood of the na
tion. The Brotherhood of Loco
motive Firemen of Georgia pro
tested against the employment of
the Negro, and the railroad com
panies checked the question up
to the State Board of Arbitration,
and 'the board decided in favor of
the Negro. And the howl goes
If the labor unions of the na
tion were honest in their expressed
desire to help the struggling la
borer, they would demand and
insist on the Negro firemen be
ing paid the scale. Over in Wy
oming a short time ago a Japanese
construction company secured the
contract for building the water
works system. The vision of sev
eral thousand Japs flinging dirt
and taking in the equivalent
roused the ire of the "laboring
classes" and a strong protest
against the winners of the con
tract was made. Canada has re
moved some of the restrictions on
Chinese immigration and the con
ditions confronting the clans of
organized labor become daily c
more complex. And, where will
the Negro be in the coming strug
gle? He's risingl!
