It looks, around Republican headquarters, as though the leaders have folded their hands, and judging from the complaints of the lack of means to carry on the campaign, one would think the doors at headquarters would soon -be closed for lack of being able to pay the rent. Just why this condition prevails, no one in authority would say. But it is stated, unofficially, that many of the strong paiT ty leaders are very much dissatisfied with the way things are being conducted in the State, and therefore, have tightened their purse strings. Os course, we do not know whether the committee is really in “straits,” or whether it is the same old cry of “wolf, wolf,” when really there is no wolf. All Republican factions seem to be for Coolidge and Dawes, but at present, it looks as though the State ticket will suffer unless something is done speedily to save the situation. COLORED VOTERS BEWARE! Some new conditions obta ,- n whenever an election is ap proaching. The Democrats become very much interested in the colored vote, and make strenuous effort to get it. They discover, without the slightest evidence, the alarming fact that he Democratic Party is the colored man’s best friend; and, therefore, due the largest measure of support. There springs up a new party every four years that is to be the salvation of the whole race of mankind. Its advocates abuse and denounce the old parties and promise in bold declarations to relieve all suffering ills and to usher in a new day upon the world. Such is our present situation. Colored voters in this state are asked to support the Democratic nominee for Governor. Not a single solitary reason is given for such proceedure. Not one can be given. La Follette’s third party is also bidding for the Col ored vote, and prophecying the day of glorious things for the race because of such alliance. The Colored people have heard of new political parties and the milenniums that were.to follow in their train, but they have never had sufficient faith to try them out.. They know the Re publican Party: its birth, its history, its traditions. They are not willing to leave it in an attempt to row their frail political bark over uncharted seas. The advocates of new political parties and strange political preachments who are relying on the strength of the colored vote bad better find their way back to the tents of the Republican Party. There is where the col ored veter continues to abide because he believes firmly and ful ly that the Republican Party is his best friend. COOLIDGE OR CHAOS The present political campaign offers three distinct atti tudes for the people’s thought. One is an attack on industry and every form of success, on the theory that Big Business means t v e Money Power. Os course it does not. Another atti tude a tacks a dead administration, but not the present one, and raises the slogan of “Honesty in Government,” as if all the rascals were in one party and all the saints in the other. Os course thev are not. The third attitude is that of continuing straight along the common-sense road of American progress, extending the usefulness and prosperity of the American shop, enlarging the advantages of the American home, holding fast the established ideals of American liberties. This third atti tude will win. Though it happens to bear a partisan name Republican, Calvin Coolidge is really the leader of the true third party, which is the American party.—Dearborn Ind. THE WHOLE CONSTITUTION One thing that has become noticeable during the present political campaign, ; s that the leaders of the two major parties are on the defense so far "as the Constitution of the United States is concerned. Senator La Follette’s inroads on these parties have had a telling effect and it seems that the only way to offset what is being done by the Independent candidate is to defend the Con stitution. We are glad that something has happened that will make the party leaders think of the Const ; tution, while administer ing the laws of the land. When we think of the Fourteenth and Fifteenth amendments to the Federal Constitution and recall just how the provisions thereof are being enforced, we cannot but wonder what have the defenders of the Constitution been doing all these years. The Democratic party, in the South, has disfranchised the Negro voters in violation of the letter and spirit of the Consti tution of the United States. The Republican party, like Saul of Tarsus, has stood by and seen it well done. But what is worse still, is the fact that the Republican party, with the reins of the National government in its hands for forty years, with men who represent themselves as the party of Lincoln, has seen men d'sfranchised, jim-crowed and denied the participation of the laws of the land solely because of color, and yet has done nothing to restore those rights. We are wondering if President Coolidge, who is already President with a Republican cabinet, and the party leaders who are so zealous of the Constitution now-a-days, ever think of how they see the same Constitution grossly violated each day, and remain just as silent as a sphinx. We wonder if they know the meaning of the fourteenth and fifteenth amendments to the Constitution. We are compelled to mention these things with the hope that now, that they are talking Constitution, it may be perchance, that the whole Constitution will come before them. It will be remembered that the Constitution knows no color. It was founded upon the theory that all men were equal before the law; that all men had certam inalienable rights which must not be abridged on account of race or creed. So let us hope that this part of the Constitution will be enforced as well as any other, by Republicans or Democrats.—The St. Louis Argus. POLITICAL POT PIE By Geo. W. BUCKNER, in St. Louis Argus The rapid growth of political consciousness in America is being manifested more in this pre-election year than ever be- THE PHOENIX TRIBUNE—ALWAYS IMPROVING n?epub!icaii Nominees] 1 I"'; - \3- nAtSACHw«s-r-rS ILLINOIS 77. rrrr fore. The third party seems to be gathering momentum from both of the major parties; while the Democratic party is being strengthened by strong individuals and groups from the Repub lican side. The reported landslide for the Republicans has in deed lost considerable ground. What the outcome will be, no one can foretell with accuracy just now. Coincident with the general awakening- of national political conciousness is to be found a changing attitude on the part of heretofore strong Negro Republicans. In short, Negroes are thinking in terms of the party leaders themselves rather than parties alone. In the past, the Republicans counted on the Ne groes and they voted the straight (?) ticket. Today both of the major parties may count on a large number of influential Negro votes. We believe the shifting of the Negro vote from one party to another is a very wholesome indication. ‘lt means that the Negro can no longer be counted as being a part of any party without questioning him as to the principle of that party. James Weldon Johnson in the October issue of the ‘‘Crisis,” pointed out the wisdom of such a course. Very often, the balance of power is entirely in the hands of the Negro vote. Heretofore, we have lacked sufficient manhood and stamina to stand upon principle and ideals. We have felt that with the Republican party in the White House, the affairs of this country would be administered all right and justice would be meted out to all racial groups. While we can not forget Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation and his desire to free the slaves, we must not for get that we are now living in a different age. We are now men and must expect to stand or fall upon the principles of citizen ship. We believe it should be our duty not to let any party be lieve that it has a monopoly upon our votes because of our color. Let us do a little more thinking and vote for men.
