Pa ty in the person of President Taft
casts its eyes above and beyond tile

swamps of Arkansas and lights:
ov some fellow called ?Strictlaiid.
Forsootih, history Joes not record
that this fellow Strickland ever ren
dered one .tenth of one pier.

that is checked up to the

Wo (Strickland) is not reported to'
^ave ever seconded the nomination
>f a candidate for governor, nor to
iave been a doorkeeper in a national
convention, nor. to have made the
iv el kin ring with the praises of the
Republican "pahtee." To be per
fectly frank, dear reader, "Who is

f-Yom the information that comes to

raft because he made Mir. Strickland ;
issistant register oi the treasury; for *
tfr. Strickland cones from Arkannaa, ;
i state which has never cast a Re- -i

mch treatment. After seeing Mr.
Henry Lincoln Johnson, of disfran
chising Georgia, inade recorder of
leeds of the District of Columbia, "and :
VIr. McKunlay , of the di&fgranchise'J

!>ot be Presumption on our part to

Ask Mr. Taft. F: i the love of Mike :
Ion t ask Mr. Waters, w:ho is still
wrestling with the self-propounded ;
1 u est ion "Do it pay?" Does it pay 1
to cling longer to an orgnni nation
which has proven io be so ungrateful
as the "Republics n party of the na-(
t i on ?
THE I /AST WORD.
Hefore another issue of The Advo
cate Is published-, the momentous
question of what party shall 'Jirect
the destinies of the nation during'
the four $*ears beginning March ith, ?
next, will have b-.rn decided. Which '
will be the successful party, no !
human beings knows Many there are 1
who protend to know, basing their t
knowledge u?on ^ne results of straw
ballots, prr?J?9'sipc of party leaders
und their own nopes. In campaigns
of the prist such thods of forecast
ing the final result have not }>een
without weight ar: .1 they have been'
found fairly reliable. But the moot ?;
astute pol'tlclan secretly confesses'
now tii at he is ^ea, that the polit
ical condition tod.vy is without pr^Ce- '
dent, aud that th ? forecast of tb^ tyiro
in as likely to prove correct on the
morning of the Mxth of November
as his own. ? '
Oat of the mate of d,oubt tb&tc
looms up. a cerxitirtty so largo that H
can not be ignored. ' That certainly
is that Mr. Taft will not be re-elect*
aw hag been firiiriiy believed by
every impartial observer since he
received the* stolen nomination at
Chicago, in .Jnitfe,, at the hand* of
the boLJest set of political highway
men that ever dlagfaced the party.
Since Mr. Taff's chances are prac
tically nil, why vote for him? Those
Negroes who sav thtfy frill support
hi tn are bound merely bj the fetish of
party regularity, ihey have always
MOted the UepttbM* an ticket and fc'ili
do so 1111 they die. A nice kettle of
fish: ' It mnUer.< not to them that the,
ttfcpubltcan partv 6f tlie nation has
jl<>ng sjnee deserted fhem to the tetl
! der mercies of tlicir avowed political
, enemies to d<) with as they choose.

; policy and the acquiescence thersin
: of his advisers has given a mighty
? impetus to Illy whitelsoi, but they
| have alwsys been Republicans and
' expect to remain Republicans till
they die.
Not one of this roac.'onary band
can give a coherent reason why he;

POOL OH KXAVK. j
In a speech ai oe crematory, Wed- [
nesdny night, Mr. Allen DeHJonney, '
who is striving to lead Negro voters !
with beer as a oair. into the trap x.lid
for them by th'i Democratic party,
overdM himself -nd made an Appeal
Bo rank that it would have nauseUed
hi& hearers had ' hty tiot already been ;
sickened by the odors arising ffom j
their surroundings. Truly the ere- i
matory, where the garbage o? the ,
city is disposed of, was the appropri- j
ate place for ^lv. DeHonney and his'
Jk *
arguments. . ... ?
He minimizes the dangers of dis
franehisement under Democratic rule
and ondorsed th^. separate coach lfi^s j:
of the southern Ftates, saying that
the accommodations <provi<Jed for the j
colored people ar-j as good as those i"
for whites and, that being the chse, ! ,
Vf ,,a ' i'
those who objected to them were j
seekers after social equality, of wijieb j
he wantej nothing. ... ;
The Advocate is willing to co.icsde !
some latitude to Mr. DeHonney, be
cause it knows r ;H iwhen his Demo- ?
cratic bosses cr.i *k their whip he
must jump or los ? his job. It k ;ews |
that he has not The moral courage of {
Joe Kent, street, aver, who, when \
st re" i commissioner That 7
he .must vote i'je Democratic ticket ]
or lose his job, rnswered "To hell j
with the job." i. ? 1 1 it never dreamed j
that he would thirk his necessity devj
manded t:hat he t-.hbuli make state- 1
ments which he himself knows to be 1
absolutely uritru?. He knows, as {
well as does every other Negro who j
has traveled ~>\r, of West Vir sinia \
into Virginia, or Kentucky, that tile ?
accommodations for him on the com-!
mon carriers ar<? - of as good as t?ey j
are for the whit s. The "Jim Cr>w" ,
car attached to tin- thropgh trains is !
the rear half of the baggage car/ In !
which 'about, eighteen ' persons might
find scats'. Should the number - of r
passengers exceed eighteen, ? sopie
bodv has to stand regardless of the t
distance to be traveled. The ventila
tion of the section /'for colored" is !
practically nil, and ladies unat.tend- ?
ed are subject to insults both at the j
liand8 of the tra'nmen and their bes- j
tial fellow trav?'^rs. Mr. DeHonney!
knows this to be true from the toM~ i
timony of those near and (dear to him,';'
yet, for his own persoual gain, he
preaches a doctr ^e which in its eife- j
cution would result in the- aba^e- i
meut of the 65,000 of his fellows Hn j.
West Virginia, ? lie - degradation of
.himsejf arid th5 liUtnlllatlon of his ;
family. If he wero an ignorant man, i

While The Advocate has severed !
its connections with the Republican '
party, lit can not refrain from ex- j
pressing its regret j- that Mr. Waters;
recelx^d such criel treatment in the ?
house of his frie )ds.
The office of -ecretary of the ad

carry with it the privilege of advising ?
President Taft or Chairman HlUes
about >fegro appointments.
Don't be gujd-i by the bugaboo of i

At the chapol meeting, Sunday
night, Dr. Washington dwelt at
length upon tho faiue of keepihg
r
.things about the household, church
and school in good repair. "NO prop
erly educated man oc* woman can;be
happy," he said, "in a homo where
the door-knobs aro loose or entirely
of i, where the gate is minus a hinge,
\ or where great patches of piaster
have fallen a?vav from their placed.
He stated that, in many instances,
the high rents charged colored people
in cities and towns was due to. the
fact that we do not keep the houses
in good repair; aence, must pay extra
for the neglect that make* for finan
cial loss to the o^ner.
Professor George \V. Carver has
issued another bulletin on vOhic}ten
Raising in Macon County." The bul
letin is very comprehensive and will
be found of much value to anyone
desiHng information oil how .to raise,
care for and market poultry. It is
well illustrate:! and bound, the work
having been don?i at the Institute
printing office. Copies will be sent
free to anyone upon receipt of two
cents to cover cost of wrapping and

Principal Washington "has just
foucluded a vory juccossfui eight-day
our of tfce state of Michigan,
pouching all of the principal cities

pose of the campi'.ign was to awaken
?wherever possible, a wider and more
intelligent interest in the work that
[ this school and others like it are
:f? g for 1:he education and upbuild
ing of the Negro race. Many rew

THE WEATHER MAN
BY
JOHN McCUTCHEON
Once there was a man of Great '
j Atmospheric Displacement who had !
j been quite a disappointment as a !
i Public Official. He had been elect- .
j ed to carry out certain Policies !
. which the people atrongly approved,
; but when ho got safely in office he I
; carried them out as a shutter. The
| they, had been deceived and bo tney
-? grimly waited for br chance to show
; their disapproval. Whenever the
chance came they showed it in un- \
i mistakable terms. Landslide after :
| landslide fell upon him but h? didn't
I seom to take the Hint. Whenever
! he asked the people if they wanted
S him to run again the people arose
and in a thunderous voice said"^o."
Notwithstanding these symptoms, .
; he buried his pride and determined to.
; run whether the people wanted nim '
! to .01* nOt.._C_ertain powerful Poll
Th? Lino.

tween white lies and fibs: She tells

MAN 0F_ HIS WORD
, No man wiH dispute that Dr.!
! Hatfield is a man of his word. A !
1 man s word is worth as much as!
| his personal character is strong j
land upright. Dr. Hatfield has;
i promised the people of \\ est
j Virginia to do many things that
j they very anxiously desire to sec
done, and to bring about many
: reforms which public sentiment
..jJemands. Don't you think he
; will make good his word? Of
1 ; course you do, you know lhatj
Dr. Hatfield is smelly a man of

Help and Be Happy.
Happiness Is not a task. Xt> la not
even an occupation. It is a quality
of life. Happiness depends on help
fulness. That's the reason Joy Is
social. Helpfulness keeps happiness
because It adds to the area of affec
tion. People are not happy when
they seek after happiness. They be
come steeped in happiness when they
undertake to promote the JOj^ of oth
ers. ? Walter Williams.

A celebrated engineer, befcig oxaro

tartly asked him what he meant by
"the creative power of a mechanic." ?>
"Why, my iojrd," said the ongineer, "I
mean that power which onablea a
