Mrs. A. W. Ilunton, from the United

of women in the world's reconstruction and
regeneration of today, and of the necessity
of seeking their co-operation and counsel.

Mine, .lules SieFried, President of the French
National Association for the Rights of
Women, brought words of encouragement
from the Internationa] Council, then meet
ing in Paris. She s;iid that no one could
appreciate better than women the struggle
for broader rights and liberties.
Resolutions were passed providing for an
other Congress to be held in Paris during
the year 1921.
The following resolutions, to be presented
to the Peace Conference now. in session, were
unanimously adopted:
I. The Negroes of the world in Pan-Afri
can Congress assembled demand in the in
terests of .justice and humanity, for the
purpose of strengthening the forces of Civ
ilization, that immediate steps be taken to
develop the 200.000,000 of Negroes and Ne
groids; to this end, they propose:
1. That the Allied and Associated Pow
ers establish a Code of Laws for the inter
national protection of the Natives of Africa
similar to the proposed international Code
for Labor.
L\ That the League of Nations establish
a permanent Bureau charged with the spe
cial duty of overseeing the application of
these laws to the political, social and eco
nomic welfare of the Natives.
IT. The Negroes of the world demand that
hereafter the Natives of Africa and the
Peoples of African descent be governed ac
cording to the following principles:
I.—The Land: The land and its natural
resources shall be held in trust for the Na
tives and at all times they shall have ef
fective ownership of as much land as they
can profitably develop.
2. —Capital: The investment of capital
and granting of concessions shall be so regu
lated as to prevent the exploitation of Na
tives and the exhaustion of the natural
wealth of the country. Concessions shall al
ways be limited in time and subject to State
control. The growing social needs of the
Natives must be regarded and the profits
taxed for the social and material benefit of
the Natives.
3. —Labor: Slavery, forced labor and cor
poral punishment, except in punishment of
crime, shall he abolished ; and the general
conditions of labor shall be prescribed and
regulated by the State.
4.—Education: It shall be the right of
every Native child to learn to read and
write his own language ai\d the language of
the trustee nation, at public expense, and
to be given technical instruction in some
branch of industry. The State shall also
educate as large a number of Natives as
possible in higher technical and cultural
training and maintain a corps of Native
,"). —Medicine and Hygiene: It shall be rec
ognized that human existence in the trop
ics calls for special safeguards and a scien
tific system of public hygiene. The State
shall be responsible for medical care and
sanitary conditions without discouraging
collective and individual initiative. A serv
ice created by the State shall provide phy
sicians and hospitals, and shall enforce
rules. The State shall establish a native
medical staff.
6.— The State: The Natives of Africa must
have the right to participate in the gov
ernment as fast as their development per
mits in conformity with the principle that
the government exists for the Natives and
not the Natives for the government. The
Natives shall have voice in the government

to the extent that their development per
mits, beginning at once with local and
tribal government according to anciJent
usage, and extending gradually as educa
tion and experience proceeds, to the higher
offices of State, to the end that, in time,
Africa be ruled by consent of the Africans.
7.— Culture and Religion: No particular
religion shall be imposed and no particu
lar form of human culture. There shall be
liberty of conscience. The uplift of the Na
tives shall take into consideration their
present condition and shall allow the ut
most scope to racial genius, social inheri
tance and individual bent, so long as these
are not contrary to the best established
principles of civilization.
B.—Civilized Negroes: Wherever persons
of African descent are civilized and able to
meet the tests of surrounding culture, they
shall be accorded the same rights as their
fellow-citizens; they shall not be denied on
account of race or color a voice in their own
government, justice before the courts, and
economic and social equality according to
ability and desert.
!). —The League of Nations: Greater se
curity of life and property shall be guaran
teed the Natives; international labor legis
lation shall cover Native workers as well as
whites; they shall have equitable represen
tation in all the international institutions
of the League of Nations, and the partici
pation of the blacks themselves in every
domain of endeavor shall be encouraged in
accordance with the declared object of Arti
cle 19 of the League of Nations, to-wit:
"The well being and the development of
these people constitute a sacred mission of
civilization and it is proper in establishing
the League of Nations to incorporate therein
pledges for the accomplishment of this mis
Whenever it is proven that African Na
tives are not receiving just treatment at the
hands of any State or that any State delib
erately excludes its civilized citizens or sub
jects of Negro descent from its body politic
and cultural, it shall be the duty of the
League of Nations to bring the matter to
the attention of the civilized world.
