1 COLORED WOMEN IN 25 STATES ARE
WORKING LIKE TROJANS TO RAISE
: MONEY NECESSARY TO PASS DYER BILL
‘ (Preston News Service)
NEW YORK CITY, Dec. B—The third meeting of
- tife officials and state directors of the Anti-Lvnching Cru
saders organization was held here last week. It was re
i ported that there were over 700 key women in 25 states
■ hard at work in an effort to enlist the aid, support and in
’ fhience of both white and Negro citizens to suppress lynch
’ mg in America.
It is said this movement owes its origin to Mrs. Helen
( urtis, of New York City. That she was inspired by a
| public statement of Congressman Dyer at the N. A. A! C.
15,I 5 , convention in June at Newark, N. »T. The committee
made it plain that the purpose was a specific one, and is
organized to raise money for a specific purpose, and then
disband in January, 1923. The purpose and object of the
Anti-Lynching Crusaders is to stop lynching and mob
violence. The one clear and practical program so far out
lined for the accomplishment of this pm-nose is that of the
National Association fob the Advancement of Colored
People, namely, to pass the Dyer Bill and enforce it. The
Crusaders have determined to raise one million dollars and
turn it over to the anti-lyncliing fund of the N. A. A. C. P.
in trust to be used to pass and enforce the Dyer Anti-
Lynching hill and to put down mob violence.
Some people have doubted if a million dollars is nec
essary. It is, and the Crusaders have asked the executive
office of the N. A. A. C. P. to outline roughly how the mon
ey could be effectively and economically expended. The
statement follows:
An anti-lvnching program demands: Publicity, Pres
sure upon congress, pressure upon state legislatures, in
vestigation, and legal processes.
The Negro has never given his cause proper publicity.
It is proposed, if sufficient funds are obtained, to conduct
a newspaper campaign of publicity patterned after the
Red Cross and Child Welfare campaigns. A campaign
where full page statements of the facts concerning lvnch
ing shall appear in every influential daily paper through
out the country until the general public is informed of the
fact that this country is cursed with lynching. Such a pub
licity campaign could be started with SIO,OOO and would,
to be complete, cost one million dollars.
Pressure upon congress. The country must be
aroused by letters, telegrams, and articles to pour in upon
the senate and stream for immediate action. Such a cam
paign throughout the United States cannot be completely
inaugurated for less than $25,000.
Pressure upon state legislatures: efforts to strengthen
state laws must not lag. Three or four states have ade
quate anti-lvnching laws, and this will cost from SIO,OOO
to SIOO,OOO. If the Dyer Bill fails of passage before March
1, the present bill must he reintroduced in the next con
gress. If the Dyer Bill is passed, the campaign against
lynching, mob violence and legal defense has just begun,
and the race must be ready for two things:
Investigation of every ease of lynching and mob
violence which occurs. These investigations must be far
more thorough than in the past, for on them we must be
able to build court cases with facts and witnesses. This
will mean the use of detective agencies, local investigators,
documentary research, etc. This takes money.
Legal processes: Finally, there are the actual law
cases. The Federal Government will probably attend to
the actual prosecutions, but the race must stand ready to
help in the preparation of the cases, the gathering of wit
nesses and the stimulation of the interest of the public
mind. So money will be needed in this event.
The Crusaders pledge that every cent of every dollar

MINE EXPLOSION IN
ALABAMA TAKES TOLL
OF OVER 50 NEGROES
(Preston News Service)
BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Dec. B—Of the
84 persons who lost their lives in the
frightful'disaster at Dolmite Mine No.
3 near here last Wednesday, more
than fifty were Negroes, it is said.
The reported cause of the fatal- dis
aster is said to have been when a
string of coal dump cars broke loose,
ran away and dropped 800 feet, down
an incline and the impact created a
cloud of coal dust. The crash of the
runaway cars severed a high tension
electric cable, and the flash or sparks
therefrom ignited the explosive coal
dust. So terrific was the explosion
that the shock was felt for several
miles in surrounding territory.
It is said that all of the mine boss
es were killed (they were white men)
and scores of Negro miners lost their
lives in making a heroic effort to
shut themselves off into rooms to
keep out the deadly gas caused by the
burning dust and explosion.
It is claimed that this mine has been
in operation since 1882 without a seri
ous accident until last Wednesday.
The deadly after-damp formed immedi
ately after the explosion caused the
death toll to be so large. The break
ing of the electric cable cut off the
power and caused the ventilating fans
to stop. It took about thirty minutes
after the explosion for the men to get
the emergency fans run by gasoline en
gines in operation.

FORMER MEMBER OF
NEFARIOUS KU KLUX
AFRAID TO BREATHE
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Dec. B—Hubert8 —Hubert
C. Clay, of Colorado Springs, Colo., is
said to‘ be carrying a pistol about the
Harvard University campus because
he received a letter signed “K. K. K.”
in which he was warned to leave the
city. He is said to have told the po
lice that while the note might seem a
joke to easterners, such a message in
Colorado would be regarded as a
serious matter. When advised by the
dean of the university to go unarmed,
Clay is reported to have told the dfcan,
“Well, I’d a lot rather shoot somebody
than have my body tarred and feath
ered.” Clay is a sophomore and said
to be a descendant of Henry Clay. He
said he was a member of the Ku Klux
Klan, but withdrew because of its pol
icy of "striking in the dark.”
