MEMBER® TOwSt G, FIRST IN B . SERVICE w _ AS WE EXPECTED A Republican landslide, throughout the state and nation, just as we predicted. Among the congratulatory messages received by President-Elect Warren G. Harding, is one from the Phoenix Tribune, pledging him the support of Arizona and predicting for him one of the largest majorities ever given a Republican candidate for president. This letter was mailed It it Saturday so that it would reach Mr. Harding about the time other letters and telegrams would be sent, congratulating him on the victory achieved. The people of this country have spoken and in language that cannot be misunderstood, have said: “We are tired of Democratic mis-rule and now want a Republican administration.” The leaders and the party will not be found wanting and none will regret the wise course the country j has taken. / In order to make assurance doubly sure, we suggest to Republican 1 leaders and campaign managers that they begin at once to fortify them selves for the next political fight a few years hence. Don’t relax one parti-1 cle, but hold fast to that which you have acquired, and begin building up your fences for the next struggle. Now that we have gained possession and control of this government, let’s retain our hold on it by blocking every j avenue whereby the opposition might creep in. The time to begin laying plans for the next campaign is NOW. We are justly proud of the part the Phoenix Tribune played in the campaign, both state and national. It can be said without fear of success ful contradiction, that the Tribune is the only paper in Maricopa county that came out boldly and stood absolutely and resolutely by the Republican i county and state ticket throughout the campaign. As to the stand we took for the National ticket, Hon. Will H. Hays, chairman of the Republican Na tional committee, can best tell about that. We have a personal letter from him, commending the Tribune for the fearless stand it took out here in this supposedly Democratic stronghold. We have in former campaigns, supported the Republican ticket passively, but in this campaign there was too much at stake and so we became an active and militant supporter of the Republican party and its principles. For doing this we have no regrets and are as elated over the outcome as the successful candidates them selves. Let’s forget party names and party distinctions during the coming administration and work for the common good and elevation of the masses. Let’s get back to the constitution and make this a government, not of Democrats or Republicans, but of the people, for the people and by the people. THE NEGRO By ELLA WHEELER WILCOX (Reprint from Chicago American) Out of the wilderness, out of the night, Has the black man crawled to the dawn of light; Beaten tty lashes and bound by chains, A beast of burden with soul and brains, He has come thro’ sorrow and need and woe, And the cry of his heart is to know, to know. You took his freedom and gave it again, But grudged as you gave it, ye white-faced men. Not all of freedom is being free, And a dangerous plaything is liberty For untaught children. In vain do we say, “We gave what he asked so and pay And right of franchise.” All wrong, all wrong. He was but a child to be led along By the hand of Love. Has he felt its touch? Nay, you gave unwisely and gave too much, But you gave not the things that his groping mind Was reaching up in the dark to find — They were Love and Knowledge. Oh, infinite Must be the patience that hopes to right The wrongs that are heavy with age and brought To the levels of virtues by mortal thought, And greater than patience must be the trust In the ultimate outcome of what is just, And in and under and through and above Must weave the warp of purpose—Love. • Red with anguish his way has been, This suffering brother of dusky skin, For centuries fettered and bound to earth, Slow his unfolding to freedom's birth, Slow his rising from burden and ban To fill the stature of normal man. You must give him his wings ere you tell him to fly, You must set the example and bid him try. Let the white man pay for the white man's crime— Let him work in patience and bide God’s time. Out of the wilderness, out of the bight Has the black man crawled to the dawn of light, He has con’- through the valley of great despair— He has borne what no white man ever can bear. He has come through sorrow and pain and woe, And the cry- of his heart is to know, to know. IT IS TO LAUGH Isn’t it amusing to see how onp merchant will condemn the "Special Sale” methods of another and then turn right around and use the same meth ' • himself? Wonder if he thinks the people have forgotten the adv;\- and Information given by him during the other fellow’s sale? We don’t believe the people forget so readily as that.

P., gave the following interview for the Associated Negro Press on the case of Tom Ray, colored, of Wilkin son county, Georgia, whose extradition to Georgia for trial on a charge of murder the association is fighting. Ray is at present in custody in the Wayne county jail, Detroit, Michigan. “Tom Ray, in self defense killed a white man named Faulkner,” said Mr. White, “in Wilkinson county, Georgia, after Faulkner had several times made attempts on Ray’s life. Ray escaped to Canada, later returning to Detroit, where he was arrested. “Governor Sleeper of Michigan granted extradition to the Georgia au thorities for Ray, although the last Negro for whom he granted extradi tion was lynched twelve hours after he had arrived in Kentucky. “Attorneys Willis and Hinton and Attorney W. Hayes McKinney, acting for the Detroit branch of the N. A. A. C. P., immediately applied for a writ of habeas corpus. A hearing on this was held before Judge Hunt in De troit on Wednesday, October 13. Judge Hunt granted the writ, but Ray was immediately re-arrested when Georgia officials wired that an indict ment was being forwarded. “A new hearing was held before Governor Sleeper on the indictment on Wednesday, October 20th. I testi fied at that time as an investigator of lynchings - and as one of the compilers of “Thirty Years of Lynching,” show ing that if Ray were taken back to the state of eGorgia he would not oply fail to receive a fair trial but would very probably be lynched immediately upon his return. “In spite of the facts presented Gov ernor Sleeper said he saw no reason why Ray should not be returned. The attorneys for Ray immediately ap plied for a new writ of habeas corpus and in the event that that fails the National Association for the Advance ment of Colored People will take the case to the federal court. “This case,” said Mr. White in con clusion, “ought to be of especial in terest to colored people of the United States as it may establish a precedent in the denial of extradition to South ern states where Negroes accused of crime are lynched or denied justice.” o CONFESSED MURDERER DECLARED TO BE INSANE Chattanooga, Tenn.. Nov. 4.—Willie Crompton, ihe negro who confessed to a long list of murders recently, has been adjudged insane by the local police.
