The movement on foot to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of our free dom by appropriate exercises on Jan uary 1, is one that should arouse the enthusiasm and enlist the help of all our race. Up to this time several persons, chiefly ministers and repre sentatives of the fraternities, have been meeting and taking the prelim- ! inary steps. Now that is well enough for a start, but the celebration should be all-embracing, or it will fail of its object. The Negro has much to be proud of. Compared with history, our fifty years of freedom have shown un equaled progress. We ourselves can not realize how great it is until we stop and consider. As it is we com plain of our shortcomings at times, only because we have so far prog ressed toward full citizenship that we feel that our accomplishments should equal the white citizen. We ourselves have forgotten that only yesterday we were slaves and that the heritage we have sets restrictions yet to be overcome. us look back upon the past with thanksgiving be cause we have made so much of it. Let us express our joy in this cele bration. and go forth from it highly resolved to continue what we have begun. Providence is more than kind. It has beautifully compensated the col ored people of this country for the harm which Jack Johnson has done them by raising up Gov. Blease of South Carolina, who is making civil ization ashamed. His tvitest break is the pardoning of a convicted rapist of his state, a rich white planter who assaulted a child. In ths light of the denunciation he gave black rapists a few days ago. his pardoning of a white one, is the height of inconsist ency. The one is indefensible, but the other who is supported by the su periority of his financial position, bolstered up by white society, edu cated in the schools, is a far greater offender against good morals because he has farther to stoop to be a rapist. Yet Blease pardons the one and damns the constitution when it inter noses the law between him and his lnood lust after the other. Southern gentleman? Blease shames the good men who fought for the Lost Cause! DENVER PERSONALS. Miss Lola Jacobs has returned home from Missouri. On last Friday evening, at the I home of his sister.

Mass.. November. 1912. Governor Woodrow Wilson. 25 Cleveland place. Princeton. N. J.: Honorable Sir-The Anti-lynching Soci ety of Afro-American Women of Boston extend to you with pleasure their con gratulations upon your election as pres ident of the I'nited States. Our pleasure Is twofold from an instance which per haps you have forgotten. Just before your inauguration as gov ernor the society wrote you thanking you for steps of justice taken in your state to prevent a lynching and was more than gratified with your kind reply. Therefore we feel that with such a man as you at the helm of state much of the bitter, un called for prejudice of years may be wiped out|bv your logical, sane judgment. We are pleased to inform you that we worked for your election and that our president. Mrs. Simpson, was on the road from Sept. 23 to Oct. 31 speaking and ar ranging meetings in your behalf to open the eyes of our people to trust those whom by their unswerving fidelity t<* a party had caused years of unnecessary enmity with the south. We (the race) wish to show you and your constituents of the south that we. like the white north, are willing to forge! the past if by so doing we can cement the bands of Christian fidelity and broth erly love between us and that the despica ble* prejudice. lynching, disfranchisements. Jimcrowlsm. tiie convict lease system and Georgia chain gang may all be done away with and their traces lost in the oblivion of God fearing justice and righteousness to all. Respectfully yours.

Nov. 15. 1912- My Dear Mrs. Simpson—Your letter of conuratuli*. lion j-»-m ‘in behalf of the Anti lynching Society of Afro-American Wo men has given me deep pleasure. I feel that the business of politics is, when prop erly conceived, so interwoven with the whole business of society that it cat successfully conducted only when there is a thorough common understanding. I therefore particularly value the con fidence and support «»f bodies like your own and hope most sincerely that the af fairs of the country may now be releasee from cross purposes and misunderstand ings. Sincerely yours. „ . ' ‘ l SUMMONS IN DIVORCE. State of Colorado, City and County of Denver, ss. In the County court. No. 4S1C8. Summons in Divorce. Virgie A.
