Stop and Consider Our Race is Injured by the Exaggerations of Designing persons—Our Real Population and Power Alone Count and They are Sufficient when Properly Used. One hundred thousand dollars a month Is spent by colored people in the one section of Denver between High and Larimer streets in East Denver. This is a sum with treraen dotia possibilities for cn a ting good will and business standing. It is so gr« • ■ n need not b< ashamed of it. it does not need to be exagger-, ated The tl.OOf* of us who live in Denver can do so much for ourselves with the dollars we spend that claims of lo.imiO and upward need not he made. The Star believes that the one sure road for the* rate to pursue to better relations with our neighbors is merit It is unfortunate that some who are self-serving try to enhance their own position by claims not based on facts, but they will do little harm unless the race as a whole seeks to gain what it has not merited just as they do. Therefore we pub lish the facts as they are. realizing the imiK>ssihilit> of answering each talse claim. The census is a far bet ter guide to our numbers than is the claim of the politician seeking pre ferment as our representative, or of Nightingale Conference. 1.

You are invited to bring your din ner and spend the day. Convenient dining-room for everybody. some newspaper which drags out a precarious living on the claim of 4,501' circulation in Denver —as many subscribers as there are people, lack ing a few. and three times os many as there are houses. It is a thought less advertiser who is deluded by such preposterous claims. Ther* l 1 s power enough in what we really have. We should spend our money with those who want it. we should concentrate it as much as pos sible to the end that it will make op portunity for us. The year lf*lo opens with the fiftieth anniversary of <sur freedom The Star proposes to make • that the beginning of an active cam paign to get us to spend our money with those who are willing to give courteous treatment, and a square deal. We are sure that the growing consciousness of manhood among us will respond to the call. The Negro in Denver is akin to his brother all over this country* who is willing to s|and up and be counted. He is too of his accomplishments in a } century to rely upon fabrication o bolster up his cause. Monday. Dec. 23. Commencement of Booker T. Wash ington College. President E. Ethel Caldwell.
