FRIDAY, JTANUARY 19, 1912. Unmanly Manners. It Is observed on street cars con stantly ' that young Negro men. are adopting the habit of refusing cour tesy toward ladies. When you ask them about their manners they tell you that In Chicago, or New York, or whatever city they have been to la the North, or have read about, the men do not give Beats to ladies In street cars. Anyone who has visited these cities knows that to be true in j most cases. It Is also a fact that the newspapers in the North are begin ning to notice that practice oa tha. part of the men, and are condemning their attitude toward the weaker sex. A few years ago papers in Pittsburg, Penn., made a persistent crusade on men for crowding in and taking all the seats before the women could get in. A woman is not as strong, physically, as a man. In the plan of creation, we are told in the Bible that God made man first, and delivered into his hands every living creature on the face of the earth. Men boast to this day of their su- nerlnrltv tft women. With all of these things In his favor it looks verv unbecoming for a man to re main in his seat and allow a woman to hold on to a 6trap in a Btreet car and be jostled and shoved from side to side by passengers getting cn and off. Young Negro men should be the last in the world to refuse to give their seats to ladles of their race; for It is a fact "that needs no com ment that Negro women and girls are subjected to more insults, not only on street cars but In all public places, than all the other women in the world. .Our young men should remember this, and should never al low themselves to remain seated as long as there Is one woman or girl ' Btanding. It makes no difference what the station may be, she Is a woman; and she is exposed to all the Insults that the rougher element of the communi ty has in store. It is the duty of the men to protect them against these in dignities when it is possible, and as simple a thing as giving a seat in a street car should never be over looked by any man, whether he be old or young, and especially bo when it Is a young man. Our women will respect us as we respect them; they will honor us when we deserve it; but no young man who will retain his seat and al low a lady to stand In the street car ?s worthy of reBpect, nor can ho ex pect to be honored by women of his race nor the people In general. . jVe. congratulate the Journal and Guide, of Norfolk, Va., on the instal latlon of a Unitype, a model of the leading typesetting machines. This is another evidence of progress in Negro journalism. Lynching In Georgia. On the first of this week four Ne groes were lynched In Georgia, three men and one woman. The only charge against them was they were suspected of having killed a white farmer. These occurrences make the blood boll In the veins of the Negroes of this country, and why it is that thousands of them do not turn anar chlsts no man is able to tell. But there Is some restraining influ ence, from tsome source, that holds the Negroes In check, and makes them look up, and be cheerful and hopeful' In the face of all these out rages. . Think of it! A woman Is lynched: and s-he is found hanging at the end of a ropo from the limb of a tree! with her body riddled with bullets. All decent men hide their faces in ! Bhame when they think of this con - temptlble outrage. White men as well as uiacK men aepiore sucn o turrences, but they coutlnue to hap pen, not only in Georgia, but from one end of the country to the other, It has ceased to be sectional The North, Eat and the West ar guilty f alike. II liiis ot (t.-ru to m rCii; "hUe and black suffer th em oat rage. It is true that Negroes suffer t0 greater extent Hundreds ct Macks are lynched for every white person; but the time was when all of the mob victims mere black; and ithe fact that some whites are lynched now only proves the extent to which csjthb diabolical practice will so un less it Is checked The question arises, whom doa It concern? and the answer comes back: It concerns the American peo ple; and then the text Question is. How can the practice be storped? and there we are lost for an answer. At times it appears that lynching is on the wane, that sentiment Is growing strongly against it, and then an out burst here and. there causes a doubt; to arise; for the frequency ot lynch-i ings .ind burnings In Oklahoma. Texas and Georgia particularly, dutv ing the last few months, is enough, to cause the most optimistic to lose heart. But yet, when man remem-. bers that the God of the universe still lives, and is Just toward all, the hope returns that these outrageous prac tices can be broken up in this coun try, and that the people of our fair: land everywhere will recognize the i supremacy of the law. It behooves the Negroes ot this country to counsel on this question. We have for years adopted the plan of abuse, but we should be convinced by this time that that plan is a failure, and steps in other directions should be taken. The Negro newspapers are gaining In influence. And In this dark period it is incumbent upon the Negro p it Ushers of newspapers to get togethe; and in an impassionate way counsel hat they believe to be the best poli cy to pursue to create a sentiment against 'lynching. , It cannot be expected that the mass es of the Negro people will tolerate lynching and butchering of their women. If they do, they are not worthy of citizenship. It would be folly to advise Negroes to take up arms and defend themselves In a general way; and yet, unless a sen timent is built up that will break down mob rule, the unthinking Ne gro men will become desperate and will resent the butchering of their women in whatever shape or form first comes to their minds. This Is the truth, not uttered to stir up strife; but In the hope that some steps will be taken to avoid such an outbreak. In suggesting a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination The Democrat, a local daily, names Governor Harmon, of Ohio, as the most available, but prefers Congress man Underwood, of Alabama, because he understands the race problem which it calls "the greatest tfblem to the South in the future." A presi dent of the United States should not only understand the race problem as it affects the South, but the East and the West as well. We doubt If Mr. Underwood 'has a fair knowledge of any race problem save that In his own state. We learn with regret of the sus pension of the Negro Fortune Teller, our nearby contemporary, published in Huntsville, Ala. We hope that the hustling manager, Mr. H. J. Rich ardson, may soon see his way clear to resume the publishing again. Since the children and Negroes are the only ones afraid of the "grizzly ghost" that makes Its appearance nightly in the vicinity of ML Olivet Cemetery, we suggest that our grown up white folks capture the monster. Eg are selling at 40 cents the dozen and upwards. An old hen or two laying every day would not be a nuisance In any sense of the word. EDITORIAL CLIPPINGS. Although Andrew Carnegie over looked the South in hero medala and reward money last year, there Is a chance for some ambitious citizen to head the list this year by preventing some of those dastardly lynchings that are so popular down there. Chi cago Defender. The people of the race here who are interested In more than themselves should try this year more than last in educating themselves to honor their debts more by paying them. The preacher, the teacher, the laborer, the business and the professional people of our race could assist much along this line for good of their people, for in such the efforts help the commu nity The (Galveston, Tex.)

She will spend quite a while with Mrs. Ma lone. She will leave for Mobile and from Mobile to New Orleans, where she will dwell until she returns to Nashville, March 29, 1912. SEPARATING FROM A JOB. Some time ago we made the obser vation which, like most things under to separate or be separated from a job than to connect or be connected with one, and that as this process of con nection with and separation from a job is a more difficult one with black than with white persons, the former should think long and seriously about it before leaving the job they have in the expectation of getting another and more satisfactory one. Last week an object lesson was given to our point of five elevator erators and the starter in the Amer ican tract Society building downtown, in New York, who quit "their jobs the second day of the New Year because they' got less of a Christmas purse the tenants of the building make up at Christmas season for such build ing help than they expected and had got in former years. They got $5 each, when they expected $100 and not less than $5) each. 'But times are hard, and the tenants did not make up as large a purse as usual. All of the sixty help go $5 each. The Six elevator men soon thought better of their hasty action and want ed their jobs back. In explaining their conduct, one of the men said, when seeking to recover his job: "Why, I never got less than $50 at Christmas, and often as much as $100. I had even borrowed money on the strength of this for general Christmas expenses. It was a slight Indiscretion on our part, I know, but won't you please let me have my job back?" But the explanation did not work. The men were not taken back. Their places were filled by others, and they will have to get out and hustle for other Jobs, with thousands of others who are doing that disa greeable stunt. And there is another pathetic side to the story. One of the men says he had "even borrowed money" on titled to, and the giving of which de nevolence of others. A geart many people do that, and cause themselves and others much trouble and expense. A long time ago, in "Great Expecta tions," Charles Dickens showed the absurdity, the sorrow and trouble in cident to expecting something with out a legal claim to back it up. If you have a good job hold on to it until you have secured a better. New York Age. BASE BALL MEN HAVE LIVELY MEETING IN TEXAS. Pursuant to the call members ot the Texas Colored Baseball League met at Fort Worth Tuesday, Jan. 10, in the office of Hiram McGar on East Ninth street, where an interest ing program was carried out. A few of the invited magnates were absent for reasons unknown, however this did not retard the progress of the meeting. After some discussion down to business went the partici pants and for more than an hour every minute was utilized for busi ness. Much interest was centered upon the number of towns to com prise the new organization. After a considerable debate, six was the num ber determined. Hiram McGar, of Fort Worth; R. L. Jones, of Dallas, and J. A. Austin, representative of the Dallas Express, spoke on the fu ture of the new organization. A fho 8 SIM raard and All MX WITH OCR HOOD CO A I. IS MUK CUT.

THE NEW LYRIC THEATRE. For sometime the colored people ot Newport News have been without a decent place of amusement, where they couid go and sit down and enjoy a first-class show. ' About three years ago, one of . our enterprising citizens took a hold ot the matter and fitted up a building which was used as a skating rink and supplied the long felt want. - Despite the ups and downs of such a busi ness, the place has been kept up un til the popular demand forced the building of an up-to-date place for such amusements, and today Newport News can boast of as fine and com fortable a theatre for colored people as there is anywhere. At a great outlay, the New Lyric Theatre has been built and opened to the public and the management feels that they have earned the sup port i of the colored people of New r r. h.

EX- Mr. Alvin Ray, a student of Fisk University, very successfully under went an operation for appendicitis at Hubbard Hospital on Friday, the 19th, Inst. The operation was per formed by Dr. F. A. Stewart. Profes sor of "Principles and Practice of Surgery and Clinical Surgery," of Meharry Medical College, and the patient Is steadily Improving. At the Tennessee State Board of Pharmacy held at the examination room qf the Meharry Medical Col lege during the past week, several of the students of the Senior Pharma ceutical class presented themselves for examination, and the returns show that a large number has been successful in obtaining certificates as Registered or Assistant Pharma cists. The following is the result: Registered: J. W. Commons, E. D, Clarke, Q. W. Johnson, James Saw yer, L. S. Wilson, W. E. Thompson, Assistants: J. H. Kennedy, R. G. Warren, A. L. Ferguson, A. B. Payne, W. A. Patterson, J. R. Robinson, Miss Goodlow, Miss E. L. Stilson, Miss L. B. Gaines. M. V. Boutto, of the University of Illinois, who Is at present connected with the Pharmaceutical Department or Meharry, was also successful in attaining a license as Registered Pharmacist.
