It is probable that such agitation as
is going on in both of the great parties
in Colorado will result in more or less
reform. There are undoubtedly men
who are actuated by no other motives
who are helping in this agitation for
a change. But at the same time the
move will be made whereby the “outs"
will wrest from the “ins" concessions
which they want. Colored voters who
are perpetually among the “outs” in
this state should not be blind to the
opportunity which is offered them by
making their claims known at this
time. There will be harmony in the
party machines as soon as the hungry
horde get all they want or at least all
that they think they will get. Steven
son, Bailey, et al.. are not such patri

Republican party for an ideal justice

Let Negroes take thought of this now.
A month from to-day the pie will be
apportioned out, and after convention
bargains will have poor show of being
kept. After-election promises are worse
than valueless. Wake up! Think what

you have the assurance that you will
get It.

work the part played by Negroes has
been small. Our pioneer work is yet
to be done. It will be accomplished
at no smaller sacrifice of life and en

whites. Let us set out to do our part.

There has been Issued ir.d is being
rapidly circulated a booklet on "Divine
Healing," written by Mrs. Beulah An
derson of this city. It is perhaps dedi
cated more to the science of keeping
well than of healing by divine means
when once sick. The reasons advanced
for the belief of the writer are well
put and convincing. Probably nine
tenths of those who read the work
will agree with so many points con

sidered at all, that it will be profitable
reading from the standpoint of mental
improvement, no matter whether its
instructions are fully carried out or
