FRIDAY, AUGUST 23, 1912. The Roosevelt Idea. Since the publication of Col. The odore Roosevelt's letter to Julian Harris, of Atlanta, the Negroes of this country have been much alarmed, and without taking the time to care fully weigh the words of the man. they have, in many instances, con demned him, charging him with at tempting to disfranchise the Negroes in the South. They forget that the day has never been when the Negro in the South has enjoyed the freedom guaranteed "Gold Bricks." Since the close of the Civil War it was thought that tveaus? of t!te race quesiou it was done; but now the same opposition is brought to bear when Johusou is asked to box with a Ne?ro Pied July 20, 1912.

But that season uid'cot last long; and the bitter days of Reconstruction are well remem-1 bered hi the South. j The Negro has been disfranchised ; in practically all of the Southern j States for many years.

That is, the actual block in the shape of a brick is not offered to Negroes now, for it is hard to find a Negro anywhere who would believe the "Gold Brick" story. But those white men who used to deal in the "gold bricks" are not all dead. They have not abandoned their old tricks, but are merely bringing the same goat to the Negro ra sheep's clothing. New schemes are being invented, but all for the same purpose, viz., to swindle the Negro out of his money.

In fact, we fail to see any hope for our race, or any other race, in this country, if it must b? special ized for. Negroes must take their places as other men, and must climb as high as their ability will carry them.
