The idea is contrary to all reason, and instead of the rich young white man having a valet, we fear he will find that the young colored lad who played with him in the white sands of Palm Beach, Florida, will insist on playing poker with him in the clubs of New York and golf with him on the links. Unless al nature goes wrong, Mr. McLean will find his scheme to be a complete failure. other hand there has never been any serious danger of Negro Wood being bo fused with the white people of the country as to cause any serious loss of race identity on their part. These dangers being disposed of there must be found Borne other ground for the late step taken by the law makers to assure the protection of race purity. If it is the intent of the law to stop the illegitimate commerce between the white and colored people it does seem that the law would have been so framed as to touch such cases. If there has ever been a law needed its need has been sorely felt along this!., .. . . . . 1 uuu. TO THE PUBLIC.

A visit to the Criminal or Police .Court most any day will convince the most optimistic that one of the great est handicaps Negroes labor under is the constant paying of court fines. Thousands and thousands of dollars are paid into the coffers of the courts every year by Negroes. And for what? In nine cases out of ten It is Borne trivial affair that could have been settled by one or the other of two parties using a little discretion, By just deciding that Instead of pay ing court fines to put the same amount of money in the bank. " But how can can these people know what is best unless somebody tells them? Herein lies a great opportuni ty for service for the preacher,' the lawyer, the teacher, the doctor and In fact, every good citizen, if they would simply take the time to talk to the thoughtless along these lines. If every one in Nashville who is Hv. ing an upright life would single out one they know to be a frequenter of the courts and show that Individual in figures how much they are con tributing to the comforts of others and of what they are depriving them selves, a great change would come over this city In the next few months. The deputy sheriffs would have to he reduced In number, and the magis trates would have time to spend' some leisure hours at home. JANE, ALICE OR BILL. . When you enter a business housa run by the opposite race, your first name nam, very harshly spoken, is what you hear If that The colored people in North Nashville are very anxious for business places to be opened that they may gladly patron ize and be treated courteously. Why not open a grocery, meat market o drug store In the storehouse just built on the corner of Eighteenth avenue, North, and Thompson street? Completely fitted with electric lights. I have also for rent a neat three-room cottage. See me at once for Iniorma- Our Retail Merchants. It is not generally known to what extent Negroes are engaged in mer cantile business in this city. Nor is It observed how many are entering on a small scale. A most encouraging sign, too, is that these concerns are prosperous. Especially is this true of our grocerymen. There are more Negroes engaged in this line of busi ness now than there ever was, and the failures are fewer. This is as U should be. Nashville Is growing in population, which means that busi ness is Increasing. People flock to cities on account of its prosperity. True, the irresponsible make up their quota, but the thrifty and industrious are always in the majority. One kind of business creates others, and the Negro population of the city owe it to themselves to keep pace with the times. This increase in commercial activl ty among the Negro population should receive a hearty response from all Negroes, and especially those who have been the most fortunate. There should be co-operation among all lead ers. More than Is apparent. This co-operation should be real. It should be so pronounced that no correspon dent could have the least pretext for writing to papers in other cities that the leaders do not heartily support these enterprises. If such co-operation can be had the business enter prises we have will prosper and oth ers of all kinds will be established and will enjoy a like prosperity. line. Instead of making a law to prohibit legal wedlock the legislatros It seems would have been acting to better purpose had they have made a law prohibiting the illegal oens. AS It stands the burden of the new en actment will fall on the colored wom an who may desire to claim legiti macy for her children by white fath ers. The law disallows oer sucn privilege and puts a stigma upon her and her children. As we see It the burden should not fall there but rather on him whose unbridled pas sions have led him across the race line. This has always been the crux of the problem of Tace purity and will remain so until congressmen and legislators are forced by the pub lic sentiment of the country to enact laws which will force fathers to be fathers not only In fact but In name. Now and then a Negro marries a white woman but he Is but one against hundreds of colored women who are the illegal common law wives of white men. Make it a felony for the men in either a legal or an Illegal case and listen for the howl Durham Reform 1732 J. H.

ITr must shuffle as Negro press would do well to pay more attention to these matters. Madero and Suarez. The death of ex-Prestdent Fran Cisco I. Madero and ex-Vice President Jose Pino Suarez are most deplorable, whatever the circumstances may be that caused the tragedy. Both men had suffered the greatest humiliation, which Is the severest punishment that can be administered to a soldier. And then it does not speak well for the new regime to have been so lax as to have permitted these men to be exposed to such danger at a period eo fraught with strife. The victor who becomes brutal to a conauered foe strips himself of cyery semblance of patriotism, and Instead stamps himself a dastardly coward.

RACE MISCT3GENA- PURITY VS. TTON. The Democratic Congress has taken up the cudgel of race prejudice and from the present pose seems destined to work the same overtime In the years immediately before us. The latest evidence of this Is the passage of a law making it a felony for a white and colored person to marry in the District of Columbia or the ter ritories. It seems late indeed for the country to take such a step to pro tect the purity of any race variety now living on American soil. Indeed race purity is largely a figment of the imagination any way. There is no such thing as a pure race. So far as the Negroes and concerned about forty per cent of them are appar ent admixture of blood while thirty per cent of the remainder have vary S5.
