call from Los Angeles, Cal., for a meet
ing at which certain phases of the so
called Negro Problem will be discussed
and, if found advisable, plans made
for the segregation of our race in some
one portion of the United States where
we would be free from "Jim Crowism,'
and disfranchisement.
Without entering into a discussion
of the merits of the plans or the sub
jects mentioned by Dr. Allenworth for
discussion, we are constrained to ask
have we not sufficient national organi
zations with practically the same
avowed purposes as those announced
in the call? It would seem to us that
either the Niagara Movement or the
Afro-American League might very
properly discuss the questions outlined
in the call if Dr. Aliens worth, as a
member, would bring them up for con
sideration. This would at least save
the formation of another organization
Most if not all of these movements,
leagues and other organizations of a
like character, national in scope, are
forces from which no tangible results
are obtained. They have high ideals
but fail to accomplish anything. The
main delect with most of them is that
though tliey are planned on democratic
lines they are really aristocratic in
their workings. For example, take the
