S. A. LANGSTON NOT GUILTY.
S. A. Langston was arrested and
tried one year ago and fined S2O in
the police court for cruelty to anim
als. lie took an appeal to the county
court, where his case was tried by a
jury, who said Langston was not
guilty. It seems that Langston owns
property with nice lawns and young
fruit trees and flowers. The cats and
dogs in the neighborhood made Mr.
1 Kingston's lawn their playground,
where they held high carnival and
destroyed trees and dug up his lawn
and flowers. He became intolerant
of these night prowlers, so he set a
steel trap and caught one of the can
ines by her tender ankle in his trap
and held her fast till her owner came
to her rescue. Since that time all
the cats in the neighborhood of Mr.
♦ Langßton. on Glenarm, take notice
that they are romping on dangerous
ground when they go out for a night’s
outing, and steer clear of 1-angston’s
place.
lawyer Townsend asked the jury
If they thought a taxpayer had as
much right as roaming cats and dogs.
He told them they should encourage
taxpayers to beautify their lawns,
and when one of them wounded a
predatory cat or dog for trespassing,
they, the Jury, should be as compas
sionate on the taxpayer as they were
on the dogs and cats, which were
worthless and a nuisance in the city
of Denver. The jury was out five
minute* and found Tow uscnd » client
not guilty.

along with the printing I do, 1
it was too much. Therefore,

Gw* Atro-Mmeric»ns Chance to Show
Ability, Says George B. Foster.
In these days we gratefully and hope
fully speak of fifty years of the eman
cipation of the Negro, says George Bur
man Foster. But we know that, while
that first outer emancipation cost oth
ers blood and tears as slavery was shot
to death by the million guns of the re
public, it was mostly a gift to the
N <*gro.
The next emancipation is iuner eman
pation. and this he must achieve for
himself. He must earn and create the
true values for himself. He will be
true and beautiful aud good as his in
ner world is true and beautiful and
good.
There** no defeat In life save from within;
L' lies* you're beaten there you're bound
to win.
But, right ns the poet is. we know
that the “within” needs n ••without.”
1-ot the Negro among us keep on in the
inquisition of material goods—it comes
first In the order of t.-ne —and the vir
tues of industry and frugality and
s< «nd Judgment and self coutrol will
nstantly Increase.
Our attitude toward him? In the
spirit of human brotherhood and by so
much ns we have arrived it is our
duty not to block or impede his arriv
ing, but to co-operate with him In his
self achievement and self consumma
tion.
Vbove all. we should take pains to
see that we close no door of opportu
nity In any direction to him. How
ui brotherly, how derogatory and para
lysing to the Negro’s ability and possi
bi Ity It Is to restrict his opportunity
to the drudgery and humdrum of the
menial and the mediocre!
Mopping floors, cleaning streets and
sewers, washing dishes In restaurants
and the like—the arbitrary limitation
of the Negro’s opportunity to these
tasks Is unnecessary and unbrotherly
on the part of our industrial and social
life. Make It n point to give the Negro
n chance at the vocations which re
quire mental aud % moral ability and
training.
