MAKE THE CELEBRATION A BIG
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
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!

OF AFRO-AMERICAN WOMEN
Congratulates President Elect Wilson.
Praised For Doing His Duty.
Before leaving home for his recent
after election vacation President Elect
Woodrow Wilson received the follow
ing letter from the Anti-lynching So
ciety of Afro-American Women, which
maintains headquarters in Boston:
Everett. 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.

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. „ .
