By FRANKLIN F. JOHNSON.
Tin* problem of adjusting the differ
ed vs between the heterogeneous
masses in the United States so that
each man will enjoy equality before
the law and equality of opportunity
for himself and his children has agi
tated the minds of statesmen oft and
on since 1770.
The overthrow of England’s sover
eignty in the United States and the
establishment of a democratic form of
government was the first. The exist
ence of slavery, the agitation against
it and its final extinction was another
step in the recognition of the brother
hood of man.
The enfranchisement of the Negro
and the abrogation of many of the
laws preventing the Negro from fol
lowing various fields of activity were
steps in recognition of the principles of
democracy.
The di- r ’ tchisement laws, Jim
crow measures, restricted school facil
ities for the race, are efforts to undo
the start made for the extension to all
of what many are pleased to term
“Jeffersonian principles.”
With the curtailment of the rights
of the Negro and a steadily growing
race consciousness as well as knowl
edge of public affairs and the growing
economic independence of the race
has come the conviction that the spir
it of democratic principles is no less
for the colored man than for the
white.
A number of white and colored men,
all firm believers in the principles of
democracy and strong opposers to
all temporizing with social prejudices
and its manifestation in discriminat
ing laws, have organized the National
Association For the Advancement of
Colored People, with offices in the
Evening Post building, 20 Vesey
street, New York.
The need of such an association /.an

be best gleaned from an address which j
one of Its leading promoters, Oswald,
Garrison Villard, editor of the New!
York Evening Post, delivered at the
recent meeting in New York of tho!
National Negro Business league. Said 1
Mr. Villard:
‘•My friends of the Business league, |
do not let the historian of the future 1
say that in this money making age the
colored American became so engross
ed i 7 ' the accumulation of means and
the establishment of business as to |
forget those higher things without ;
which he cannot hope to succeed and
rise to great usefulness, to be really
worthy of his heritage of American I
citizenship.
“Do not forget that, while every ef
fort must be spent In fortifying our
selves In every community by busi
ness and material success, equal effort
must be devoted to that of far greater |
movement, the insistence upon tho
Negro’s equal and political rights in
every place and at all times.
“Anything short of absolute equality
before the law is slaver}’.
“My friends, this republic cannot ex
Ist half slave, half free, any more to
day than it could In the time of Abra
ham Lincoln.”
Dr. W. E. B. Du Bois, the eminent
authority on racial questions, has been
engaged as secretary of the associa
tion. Professor Du Bois is a native of
Massachusetts. After graduating frorr
Fisk university In 18S8 he entered
