WASHINGTON, D. C, July 13.—
“There is more lawlessness in the city
of New York in one week than there
is in the state of Georgia in a year,"
declared Senator Harris, Democrat,
Georgia, khis afternoon when the mat
ter of lynchings came up in the Sen
ate. He cited a few instances but did
not go into details.
The trouble started when Calder,
Republican, New York, inserted in the
record a newspaper account of the re
cent lynching in Wayne County, Ga.,
of two negroes tinder sentence of
death who had been respited by Gov.
Hardwick. Senators Harris of Geor
gia, Dial of South Caroline and
Shields of Tennessee, resented the ac
tion of the New York senator.
Senator Harris said insertion of such
a story was an attempt to exaggerate
lawlessness in the South. Reading
from a New York newspaper of today,
Harris recited a few’ of the crimes
committed in that city within the past
few hours, including the murders of a
12-ycar-oId child, an Italian, a Jew.'
This was but a partial list, he said,
and the daily list of crime in New
York, including murders and holdups,
was too long for the record.
Let South Solve Question
“The south should be left alone to
settle its negro question. It is doing
the very best it can and interference ,
from outside will not help. The good
people of the South and Georgia de
plore lynchings, just as the good peo
ple of other states deplore them.
“Many negroes have gone north and
received treatment different from what
they have expected. Some of them :
have returned and said they suffered i
more in the north than in the south i
and have been glad to come back home
where they arc well treated. Negroes
who come north expecting preferential
treatment and employment^ have been i
Harris was resentful because Sena
tor Calder had inserted the newspaper ]
story in the Record while both Sena
tors Harris and Watson of Georgia 1
were absent from the chamber.
This story said Governor Hardwick]
had offered a high reward for the ].
lynchers and was determined to break i
No Room to Talk
“Every Georgia governor that I
have ever known, including the pres- "
ent one,*' said Senator Harris, “lias de- '
predated lynching. But with the rcc-' I
ord in his own city and state the sena
tor from New York ought not to raise |1
a sectional issue here So long as i
am in the Senate I will never raise a
sectional issue, arraigning north f
against south or east against west, for ,'
this is one country and we all fought,:
together to make it the greatest in the
Senator Shields interjected with the
statement that Senator Calder had not
mentioned lawlessness in the north.
“He did not say anything about the ’
recent terrible massacre of mil er>
Herrin. III., almost in the dtauow of
the city hall of Chicago,’ ctootnH
Senator Shields. “We do not ki
how many were killed. It runs any-I
where from 25 to 40, according to ac
count, hut we know that 1 (1 unidenti
fied miners were buried after the mas- i
Herrin an Awful Massacre
“These men who were lynched had
committed no crime. They were
lynched after they had surrendered
and raised the white flag. It was a
horrible massacre. Even a crippled
foreman, who could nt run, was club
bed and beaten. And that was out
near Chicago and the local authorities
have done nothing about it and ap
not trying to punish the lynchers. It
is to the credit of the attorney general
of Illinois that in the past day or so
he has started an investigation. The
city council and sheriff at Herrin have
ignored this awful affair and refused
to act against this mob, which is re
ported to have represented 5,000 per
Senator Dail of South Carolina said
Senator Calder had put into the record
a story about a Georgia lynching, when
neither of the senators from that state
was present to reply immediately.
Senator Harris took the floor as soon
as he heard of it.
Will Object to All Such Matter
“1 started to object myself,” said
Senator Dial, "but the article having
no reference to South Carolina, I did
“f do not approve of lynching either
north or south, but no section of the
country has any advantage over an
other section when we come to con
sider lawless acts in the United States.
There is too much lawlessness every
“I serve notice I am going to object
from now on to much of this matter
such as the senator from New York
inserted in the Record. We are about
to make a yellow journal out of it.
I am going to object here to such
matter and have here an official pub
lication representing the hest senti
ment of the Senate and not have in
the Record what anv mttekraker may
say of some particular section of this

Lands in Jail
OAKLAND, Cal.. Aug. 5.—Mistak
ing a policeman on duty for a striker
last night, Robert Rafew, black em
ploye of l be Santa Fe Railroad, opened
lire on the patrolman:, 'the cop im
mediately returned the fire and several
shots were exchanged before Rafew
was taken into custody,
Rafew claims that he thought the
patrolman was a striker as he had been
accosted by three strikers as he hart
left a street car on bis way home. He
darted into a vacant lot and when the
patrolman approached he opened hre.
Rafew was held for investigation.
New York. Aug. 1, 1922.—J. Jolibois,
if Port-an-Princc, Haiti, editor oi Le
Courier Hcitien, a leading newspaper
if Haiti, was twice arrested and con
ined to jail during the month of June
■or protesting against certain financial
lowers in the United States forcing a
can of $40,000,000 on the Haitian gov
rnmi nt, according to a letter received
md made public today by Janies \\ cl
lon Johnson, Secretary of the Na
ional Association for the Advance
pent of Colored People. M. Jolibois
ias been one of the most outspoken of
ilaitan leaders in denouncing the acts
if the American Occupation.
Tn commenting on the arrest of M.
[olibois and the causes of Ill’s having
>een Imprisoned, Mr. Johnson said:
"It is obvious that the efforts now
icing made to force this loan of forty
nillon dollars on the Hatian Govern
nent, which the Haitians declare they
io not need and do not want, is tor the
mrpose oi future justification of con
nuance of the occupation of Haiti by
lie United States Government, When
mpleasantly direct demands are made
in the American Government in the
uturc to cud the occupation of this re
mblic, the obvious retort will be that
uch a step would be impracticable
mtil money loaned by American bank- j
ng houses is repaid.
"The arrest and imprisonment of M.
olibois for daring to speak out on a j
natter regarding which there should i
ic the utmost freedom of speech and;
iress is simply another incident in j
chat is already a record of imperial i
lespotisw. In spite of the recent re-1
iort by the .Senate Committee, headed j
iv Senator McCormick of Illinois,,
chieh almost completely absolves the;
dccupatoii of ail blame, the case of \
,1. Jolibois is indicative of just what
urn neighbors to the south are under
ping in the process of 'benevolent
utelage’ by the American Govern

NEW YORK CITY, July 31.—
You may turn black when you die
and your own brother may not rec
ognize you—that is if your skin is
light. It happened in New Ycrlt
tJ George Miller. Miller com
mitted suicide on the 11th of July,
his body was discovered by his J
brother on the 13th, but he was not
recognized because he had turned
completely black—the result of ex
posure. Charley Miller, his brother,
was hard to convince that the man
with the black skin, who lay rigid
and silent in death at the morgue,
was his dear brother. Queer thing
the color of skins anyway.
