Trustee. COLOUKD VOTKKS ASSISTED. Portland, Me., Sept. 21. ? II is said that :j,00() colored voters, disgustcl with the Taft administration, vote! with the Democrats in the .*eeeut election in which they turned a lie- ? publican majority into a Democrat' majority of 8,000. JIM CROW CARS. And disfranchisement will be the Ne gro's portion if tlie Democrats are elected. In his paper, The Weekly Courier, George Byrne to whom above all the credit should be given for the in sertion of the jim crow car and dis franchisement -planks in the plat form of the state Democratic conven tion assembled here two years ago, says: I see there ar$ a number q? I^egro clubs in this city, organized for' the purpose of helping to elect the demo cratic county ticket. I am glad to see this, for I believe the smccess of that ticket is vital to the interest1 of the community. It shows thai the col ored people are alive to these inter ests, and willing to help forward them. It shows that they have come to see the truth with respect to the matter of disfranchising those mem bers of their own race who are not fitted for the exercise of the fran chise, for they know, of course, that the democratic candidates for the leg islature will vote for a disfranchising amendment, if elected. They are pledged to do this by the democratic piatform, and impelled a3 well, doubt, by their personal predilec tions. I believe the future good of the col ored race will be best served by tak ing the franchise away from the members of that race at present, and making its return a matter for the citizens of the future to deal with. The organization of these Negro clubs means to me that the Negroes themselves see this matter in the proper light, and are acting accord ingly. The democratic candidates are al so in favor of a separate coach law, and will no doubt give their sup port to such a measure, if they shall be elected, which now seems assured for with the Negro votes taken away From it the republican party in Ka nawha county will be absolutely helpless. Thus do all things work together for good to them that serve the Lord. And the democratic 'party has been faithful in the service. NOTICi; OK TItU.STIOlO'H HA MO.
