Have Launched Campaign to Place One Million Dollars Worth of
' Life Insurance on the Lives of Negroes in Mis-
souri, in Ninety Days.
Wo believe that our people in Kan
sas City and the State of Missouri
possess Just as much race pride as
our people in Georgia, Alabama and
other southern states. We believe
that it our people can organize and
operate large Insurance companies In
the southern states we can do it in
Missouri.
We believe that our people in Mis
souri want the very best Insurance
that money can buy. Wo believe that
our Negro population in Missouri
PROF. J. DALLAS BOWSER.
Whose pungent and courageous aS
tides on "Honesty in Business," has
provoked much discussion and has
brought a flood of letters of congrat
ulation and commendation from repre
sentative men and women of the race
from all sections of the Country. The
Sun is proud of Prof. Bowser.
would welcome a strong Negro Life
Insurance Company, and would rally
to its support; knowing that it would
create positions for our young men
and women, who are sacrificing their
time and money in high schools and
colleges qualifying themselves for
better positions.
With these thoughts in mind a few
of Kansas Cities successful and reli
able business and professional men
in the persons of T. B. Watkins, C.
H. Calloway, W. C. Hueston, Dr. Wm
J. Thompklns, Dr. Geo. W. Hodgepeth
Dr. L. P. Richarson, Dr. J. B. Dibble,
Prof. J. n. E. Lee, Prof. A. 0. Coffin,
Dr. J. E. Perry, J. J. Allen and A. E.
Beck organized an insurance com
pany to be known as Mid-West Life
Insurance Company,
These men will constitute the board
of directors and officers for the first
fiscal year. The company will oper
ate under the stringent insurance
laws of the state, which will guar
antee every policy holder tho same
protection as any other insurance
company incorporated under the stip
ulated premium plan.
Tho company's present capital and
surplus is J15.000, and it Is the inten
tion of the directors to increase tho
capital to $100,000 as soon as possible
and branch out into other states.
Every NeKrouiln .Kansas City,, as
well as the state ot Missouri, who is
of insurable age and can qualify phy
sically ought to take a policy with
this company. -Don't wait for a
agent to call on you, but write or
phone the office and one of the com
pany's representatives will gladly call
on you and explain the different fea
tures ot their policies.
The company is now writing ordin
ary life, twenty payment life and
twenty year endowment policies.
Life insurance is not only one of
the best systematic plans of saving,
but it ts the surest way to build up
an estate that will take care of you
in old age and will take care of your
family after death.
We are appealing to tho THINK

Asiatics as farm workers in Califor

A VOTE FOR THIS TICKET OPENS THE DOOR OF HOPE
Every right and every privilege of Citizenship that the Colored American
Enjoys Came Through the Republican Party. Every Reprisal Against His
Citizenship, Every Constitutional Privilege He Has Lost Was Taken By
the Democratic Party.
The Democratic party, its platform and its candidates have all ignored the.
twelve millions of colored citizens, who defended the flag in time of war
and loaned to the Government one-fifth of their wealth.
BEAR THIS IN MIND
Thousands of colored people who have moved into Northern labor centers
from the Democratic South, CAN VOTE, provided they hold the qualifica
tions of other men. The fact that they are colored does not interfere. Tell
them of this privilege, and direct them to their county or city chairman of
the Republican organization, who will be glad to give them full instructions.
