Sutton of Helena, white, has set a new standard in fees for his service. It seems that the Rev. G. W. Blakely of Littlr Hock, Arkansas had purchased gas, oil end accessories for his car from an Ira Proctor in the amount of sl4 some days ago. Hs gave his check on his bank in Lit tle Rock for the said sum. When the check reached Little Rock the bank sent it back stating that the signature did not correspond tc the signature on file. Proctor then turned the check over to Sutton who came to Little Rock (but was unable to contact Dr. Blakely who was out of the city attending a conference at Warren When Dr. Blakely came to Helena to attend the annua] conference the lawyer came to him and demanded $25 for the check. When Dr. Blakely protested, Sut ton stated that "all Negroes are just the same to me and that Is the way we do in Helena,” Rather than have an alterca tion, Dr. Blakely paid the $25 and employed his lawyer, Scipio h Jones, to file suit against Sutton. GOP Threat To One-Party System NEW ORLEANS—(A N P)—A renewed interest in the political activities of the state of Louisiana was evidenced, this week, when Negro leaders gave out several ex pressions of how the general popu lus may gain absolute ballot rights. Several weeks ago, it was evi denced that the Republican par ty, which has been a defunct ele ment in the state’s set-up, was mapping out plans for rejuvena tion of the party. Realization that the Democratic machine politics had set-up an impregnable forti fication forced the Republicans to look forward to the hopes oi getting the disbarred Negro votage as a “wrecker” to pull them out of the mlre° Lily-white Republicanism, which was also one of the set backs for the Negro who is traditionally a Republican in the South, was giv en a black eye when the young Republican organization, headed by John L. Woods, won the right to enter their candidates in a pioposed Republican primary elec tion over the objections of the old OOP faction headed by Johnny Jackson. ELECTROCUTED FOR MURDER RICHMOND.
