With this issue The Statesman will ■become known as "THE DENVER STAR." The reason for the change lies entirely in the confusion which has existed for many years because of the similarity of our name and that of another paper. We believe that we will best serve the community and advance our own interests by making the change and ending any confusion which has existed. There is no change of ownership, none of manage ment, —in fact no change whatever except the name. For a few weeks we shall take steps to familiarize you wiith The Star and then shall thrust it forth into the journalistic sky where we hope it may shine and light the pathway of a struggling race bv its ray. ALL HAIL "THE STA’R." WHAT A CHANGE A FEW MONTHS MAKE. The proof of the pudding is in the -eating. The United States will now have the opportunity to know what Democracy can do. Its victory is com plete. We have maintained that it is wrong. Maybe we are right. At any rate, in a few months after it has tin kered with tariff in an extra session we will know. Then we shall also know what to expect from it concerning the rights of colored citizens. The regularit y with which Southern members of Con gress have tried to have our consti tutional rights abolished has made us dread this day. Yet it is here, and the best we can do is to watch and wait. We hope Northern Democracy will not join with* the South in such a monstrous injustice. Yet it may. The proof of the pudding is in the eating. It was not long since that various organizations and a multitude of peo ple were clamoring for commission form of government for Denver as the best way to get rid of Speer and his corrupt administration. Later they found that they elected Arnold and for a time the noise of the hammer was stilled. Now again ths anvil chorus is in full swing. Commission form of government for Denver is again urged as a panacea.. It appears that the end is not yet. In the mean while the poor taxpayer pays and pays and pays. That is our one criti cism of the whole mess. Whatever good intentions the agitators have are too costly for the good they will do. Maybe we will have to undergo this latest administrative experiment, but we may expect to pay the piper if we dance. Jack Johnson is in limbo and seems in a fairway to stay there. From the day he won the championship in for off Australia down to his last journey in the police patrol, he has preferred to be in the public eye as a Bohe mian. He is deserving of no sympa thy. The w’orld does not expect a prizefighter to teach Sunday school, but it does expect him not to be flagrantly indecent. DENVER PERSONALS. ODD FELLOWS CELEBRATE ANNI VERSARY.
