This is because there is an in creasing number of colored people with wisdom enough to see to it that the con science of the nation gets no rest, is not allowed to go to sleep on the question. If the Negro would only let the American people alone, and stop reminding them that they have done and are still doing him great injustices; if he would only stop mak ing himself a demonstration to them and the world that American democracy is hy pocrisy and a sham; if he would only con fine himself to proclaiming...

According to Literary Digest, labor leaden are overwhelmingly in favor of prohibition, which, in its opinion, reflects the sentiment of a greal majority of the members of or ganized labor.

THE PASSING THRONG Last week I congratulated myself for never having been in but one street ear wreck and came out of that without a scratch or a jar, the daily and weekly presa of the city to the contrary notwith standing, but at the time I neither knocked on wood or crossed my fingers, and, ac cording to the iupersititous, some calamity was bound to befall me. For two days I escaped and I was about to congratulate myself again for having completely out generaled the goofs, when on Sunday morn ing I scanend the jury list for April and found my name was among those drawn. Escaped from a wrecked street car to be drawn on the jury for thirty days and I felt like saying, Oh, Street Car, where is thy sting.' I have lived in Seattle for thirty years and have never sat on a jury, not because I trumped up an excuse to keep from doing so, but because 1 have always operated a one-man business, which would undergo great suffering if I were not constantly with it, The late Judge Robert Brook A...

The conviction of Senator Newberry of Michigan and the indictment of hundreds of government officials brings the patriotic citizenry of the United States face to face with a state of degeneracy common to a large percentage of the citizens of this country, which is constantly growing.

CITY OR COUNTRY In every country town, in every farming community, we find young men who are pining for the gay life and the higher wakes of the great cities. In every city we find men of mature years, heads of families, who would give anything to get back to the sanity and pur ity of country life—but they can not. And there you have the situation in a few words. The young man in the country store, or the bank,, or the blacksmith shop, or on the farm, reads of the high wages that are being paid in the cities. They seem fabul ous compared with his more modest earn ings in the country. lie becomes fired with a desire to coin money, break his home ties, and join the millions of toilers in the maelstrom of marts of commerce. Knt once there he is soon disillusioned. He finds thai bis wages are perhaps double or treble what they were in the home town or on the farm, lie also finds that his ex penses are not only doubled or trebled, but are four or five times as heavy.

THE PASSING THRONG I read with both surprise and chagrin the annual police report of Seattle, which said 21,879 persons had been arrested in Se attle the past fiscal year, and among that number were 789 colored persons. On first blush my wife exclaimed, "that's a good showing for the colored citizens," and I quite agreed, but on sober second thought I discovered that instead of being a good showing for them it unveiled a deplorable state of affairs, and, using the words of another, "something must be did." If it be true that Seattle has upwards of 400,000 then the percentage of arrests among all classes of white citizens was a slight frac tion over five per cent of the entire white population. If Seattle has 6,000 colored citizens, and this is questioned, then the per centage of arrests among the entire colored population was a fraction under twelve per cent. If, as maintained by some, there are but 4,000 colored citizens in Seattle, then the percentage of arrests was almost twenty ...

South ANOTHER PROPHET GONE ASTRAY Louise Meyers Meredith contributed a letter on "To Solve the Racial Problem" in a recent issue of the Chicago Daily News, which is in some respects satisfying and in some respects disappointing. The writer manifests interest in the Negro and wihses him well, but with characteristic Anglo-Saxon egotism dogmatizes and lays down the law upon things she knows com paratively little about.

THE PASSING THRONG The controversy between the contending factions in Alaska, which has been staged in Washington City makes interesting read ing for the country by and large. The lie and the modified lied has been freely ex changed between the representatives of the two factions and may perhaps both sides are correct, but amid it all T have watched and waited to hear one or the other charge the other with representing the working people— the men and women, who form the bone and sinew of not only Alaska, but the entire United Stales, but neither side seems willing to assume the onerous task of representing the people, and thus does Alaska become but a fat and juicy bone, over which hungry dogs fight to death. The goods that the gods have uven unto Alaska are to be gobbled up by a few highwaymen and in spite of the alleged greatness of Uncle Sam he is powerless to turn the whole over to tin 1 working people of his eminent domain, but is forced to sit as an arbitrator be tween two jar...

Today J am going to talk to you and each of you on the death rate among colored folks, which, after careful investigation, I find no less alarm ing than the Seattle criminal record. The IT. S. census has recently issued a death rate bulletin which declares the mortality among the colored citizens of this country very much higher than among any other distinct class, but believing that report the work of prejudiced southerners 1 gave it little or no consideration.
