The Political Opportunity
For the Negro.
Now that the Primary Elec
tion for the nomination of can -
didates for the different com
missionerships under Commis
sion Form of Government just
adopted is near at hand, an
opportunity is presented to the
Negrosof Denver such as they
have never had before in all
the years previous in any elec
tion. There are candidates
galore for every office and if
the negro leaders could but
lay aside their petty jealousies
and frivilous differences and
get together and unite our sol
id vote upon some one candi
date for each commission we
could land our man and there
by gain more political recog
nition for our race than we
have ever before had in the
city.
Now is the time for the ne
gro leaders to get busy. For
get faction! disputes, disregard
party lines and throw the lull
weight of the 5000 negro vote
to candidates who are best ac
ceptable to our interests and
who will give us a square deal
in their offices.
Four or five thousand votes
cast for any one candidate be
fore the primaries will almost
insure the nomination to the
man who should be so fortu
nate as to receive the solid
vote of the negroes of Denver.
Let us for once imitate the
Jews, the Germans and the
Italians and secure represen
tative recognition for our
worthy young men and young
girls who have gone through
our high schools and colleges
and fitted themselves for bet
ter work than mere janitors
and scrub women. A strong
representative committee of
unselfish men and women of
our race should get together
at once and organize for the
benefit of the race. By so do
ing we will not only secure
just recognition at the hands
of the candidates for our boys
and girls, but we will be in a
stronger position to block any
proposed legislation in the
future which aims to discrim
inate or Jim-Crow us. We
have often urged the organi
zation of a tax payer’s league,
but no heed has been taken of
such a proposition. “In time
of peace, prepare for war." is
an old but true saying.
Then let us secure recogni
tion and protection before the
election is over. Do not leave
it to any r one individual to
make a “stall’’ and secure a
job for himself alone by rep
resenting that he alone carries
the negro vote in his vest
pocket.
Therefore, in view of the
very brilliant political oppor
tunity presenting itself to. the
negroes of Denver at this
time, we should grasp the op
portunity which is ours.

MR. S. A. McGUIRE
One of Denver’s Oldest and
Most Worthy Railroad
Men Celebrated His
25th Year of Ser-
Service in the
Pullman Co.
On Wednesday evening of
this week, our congenial
friend, Mr. S. A. McGuire,
summoned a few friends to
his beautiful and well appoin
ted home to help him cele
brate his 25th year in the ser
vice of the Pullman Co.
Twenty-five years ago, March
12, Mr. McGuire entered the
Pullman service at St. Louis,
Mo., and made his first trip as
a “deadhead” from that city
to Chicago on the car Edina.
Mr. McGuire related some
ctf his many railroad exper
iences to the delight of his
guests, and it would take a
Bill Nye or a Mark Twain to
adequately recount his first
experiences as a railroader.
Mr. McGuire is known by
almost every railroad man in
the country, and ran from St.
Louis to Denver before com
ing here to live with his fami
ly in 1904.
Mrs. McGuire and her
daughters, the Misses Mabel
and Jessie Andrews, are most
charming hostesses, and Mr.
McGuire an ideal and gener
ous entertainer.
The dinner was one that
deserves especial mention be
cause the turkey that Me
"fetched” home for the occa
sion was so large that it came
by freight.
The guests present were:
Mme. Ada Crummer, Mr. T.
S. Rector and Capt. and Mrs.
Thos. Campbell.
