EDITORIAL PARAGRAPHS. A move is now on to unite the northern and southern branches of the Presbyterian Church of the United States. A couple of years ago an effort was made to unite the northern and southern branches of the Methodist Episcopal Church and the move nieni was working like greased lightning until hte Negro question was struck and in almost the twinkling of an eye the whole scheme exploded into a thousand atoms, which moved some one to compare the unity scheme to a fellow that had worked faithfully from January to July and then spent the most of his savings in fireworks for the of Fourth of July. On that glorious day he called his friends about him to help him celebrate and watch the display. He lifted the great pile of patriotism, and, using his own words, "Fizz, fizz, bomb! and my money was all gone." We suspect the unity efforts of the wings of the Pres byterian Church will meet a similar fate as did the wings of the Methodist Church. The southern wings of these two g...

TOO NAUSEATING TO PUBLISH. Last week Cay ton's Weekly published "The Triple Tragedy." Though, as bad as it was, it ended well, and this week it is the Shubuta lynchings, and if your blood does not run cold on reading this latter gruesome story, then it's because you have ice water instead of hot human blood in your veins. These blood curdling stories (all true) pains to have to publish them because we hate to have children read them, but, for the good (we hope) of our fellow man, we are almost compelled to do so. The following, taken from the May "Crisis," which was recently held up by the postal authorities, doubtless because it contained this and like articles under the caption of "The Shubula(Mississippi)Lynch ings, is so nauseating that after reading it you stop and wonder if the United States is safe for democracy, in what country is it unsafe. But here is the story: On Friday night, December 20, four Negroes—Andrew Clark, age 15; Major Clark, age 20; Maggie Howze, age 20; and ...

EDITORIAL PARAGRAPHS. Lynch got lynched down in Missouri last Wednesday and the rather odd thing about it Lynch was a white man and the lynchers were all white men and thus does crime beget crime and the sins of the father fall upon the children even to the third and fourth generation. Retribution is bound to follow these years of lawlessness in this country and the innocent will have to Buffer for the guilty. According to the black dispatches Monroe Trotter is now in France and is telling no one his mission, and if that be true then what can he accomplish while there so far as the colored man of this, country is concerned, but if not actuated by selfish motives he will be able to fill his brain with much valuable information, which can be of invaulable service to the readers of his paper. It was proposed some time ago to dis band the Seattle Negro Business Men's League on the grounds that it had ac complished little or nothing during its ex pensive existence, but the proposal did n...

AMERICANIZE AMERICA Eight ;md a half million persons in the United States over ten years of age can not read a newspaper, billboard, car card, sign, booklet or letter in the American language. Five and a half million of them can not read anything in any language. These astounding facts demand the imme diate consideration of the nation. The war has remonstrated some of the dangers from large number of foreign-born persons who have not been assimilated or Americanized. It has also brought to light thousands upon thousands of native-born Americans who can not read or write. These illiterates and aliens outnumber all the people in Nevada, Wyoming, Delaware, Arizona, Idaho, Mississippi, Vermont, Rhode Island, North Dakota, Oregon, Maine, Florida. Connecticut and Washington com bined. They exceed the total population of the Dominion of Canada.

THE PASSING THRONG At his monthly covenant meeting hist Sunday forenoon, the pastor of the Mount Zion Baptist Church, Rev. W, D. Carter, admonished his members to forget the in eidetii of their conversion to Christ and tell of some recent blessings from the Creator, which set us to thinking, and we mentally concluded that every day, every hour and every minute, those who would open their hearts and let the Savior in, a new bless ing would come to them. With the Savior in full control of your heart and the "love your neighbor as yourself radiating in every di feet ion, there is no doubt hut bless ings from all sides, from above and below, will freely flow in upon you. Who loves his neighbor as himself is a radiator of help .-Hid happiness and such person is already God's elect and, like Enoch Arden, his or her name in the book of life, will lead all the rest.

UNCIVILIZED An ancient ape, once on a time. Disliked exceedingly to climb, And so he picked him out a tree And said, "Now this belongs to me. I have a hunch that monks are mutts And I can make them gather nuts And bring the bulk of them to me, By claiming title to this tree." He took a green leaf and a reed And wrote himself a title-deed, Proclaiming pompously and slow: "All monkeys by these present know."—■ Next morning, when the monkeys came To gather nuts, he made his claim: "All monkeys climbing on this tree Must bring their gathered nuts to me, Cracking the same on equal shares; The meats are mine, the shells are theirs." "But by what right!" they cried, amazed, Thinking the ape was surely crazed. "By this," he answered; "if you'll read You'll find it is a title-deed, Made in precise and formal shape And sworn before a fellow ape Exactly on the legal plan Used by that wondrous creature, man.

EDITORIAL PARAGRAPHS .Mr. President Stone, of the Seattle branch cif the N. A. A. C. I*., is deserving of a gold medal for his splendid work in the drive Htid the entertaining of Mr. Johnson. He gave his time to the cause ai a time when his time w;is worth in dollars and cents ten fold more than has been taken in during the drive and as well as at the .Johnson lecture.

A motion to thai effect is therefore in order.

Russia has many millions of I. W. W.s and they have been raising "hell," vulgarly speaking, in that country for quite two years, and yet they are no nearer the goal of their ambition than they were the very day they began their wild outlawry. What is true in Russia would be doubly true in this country. For a million colored persons to start out on a mission of outlawry it would mean immediate extinction for the whole. The colored man in this country in his general uplift work is making haste slowly, and it's just as well that he does, for he will last longer and travel further. Instead of a million I. W. W.s, ten million law-abiding educated Christian citizens among the colored folks should be the am bition of every colored man and woman, and in that state of mind he would hasten the millenium between himself and the white man of the United States. Good citizens under pressure are better by far than crim inals at large seeking whom they may devour. Mrs. X. J. Asberry journeyed to Se...
