nwwaaanly for publication, but as tviuonce of Sood
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
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. .

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.

Although Andrew Carnegie over
looked the South in hero medala and

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

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

Mrs. L. C. Head, of 810 Sylvan
street, left Nashville Monday night,
January 22nd, for Birmingham, Ala.,
to vis-it her friend, Mrs. J. H. Malone,
where she is beautifully entertained
by many other friends. She will
spend quite a while with Mrs. Ma

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.

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

to all orders, thus insuring romnt, carvftil title lent aorvlro
new feature will be inaugurated this
year which will add more Interest to
the followers of the game. Exhibi
tion games will be had before the
regular championship race begins,
thereby giving the fans a line on the
materials wheih are to represent
their towns. After a few more items
of interest were discussed the meet
ing adjourned to again meet Mon
day, ' February 12, In the office ot
Hlram McGar, at which time alll ot
the magnates are supposed to be
present and the schedule for 1912 is

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
