THE PASSING THRONG L;ist Sunday afternoon I attended a meet ing, which was called by 11. Alfred Lewis Mini K. V. Miller, and as \ was getting ready io follow my usual custom and hot-foot ii nver there my boy insisted that I go over in the auto, Io which I reluctantly con sented, bui I finally stepped into the car and before 1 could kiss my baby good bye I w;is where I was. On arriving ;it my destination, a number of those present standing on the outside of the building, al diiisl iii one voice said, "Now you look like H real editor." and "that's the way for an editor to come to such meetings." To say the least. I was nonpulsed because looking at it Prom my point of view as an editor. T I'i'lt ■completely out of my element and I fell that everybody else who saw and per somilly knew me. felt about the same, espec ially in that particular, just as I did.

THE NEGRO SPEAKS It is sometimes said that Dr. Dv Hois is bitter. If this new book of his is bitter, 1 do not know what bitter means. It is to me one of the sweetest books I have ever read. "I was born by a golden river." Dr. Dv Hois records, "and in the shadow of two great hills, five years after the Eman cipation Proclamation." The shadows lie on his book, but the gldoen river runs through it. and the waters of the river are sweet. Only an aritsi like Dr. Dllbois can pos sibly speak as he does for the Negro. The mission of Booker Washington— "a great man. Booker Washington," Dr. Dv Hois calls him —was to work out definite and immedi ate programs that required the cooperation of white folk. To that mission Dr. Dv Hois pays tribute. Hut his own business is the much less tangible, much more difficult one of opposing to the white conception of the Negro the Mack conception of the Negro, and in thai way Bhowing his belief in his own Negro blood. Only an artist can do that. Dr. Dv Bois ...

He comes from the middle of the country, he stands in the mid dle of a road, in the middle of his party, about midway fofetween Wood of New Hampshire and Johnson of California. He has'risen from a farm to an estate, from obscurity to moderate fame, perhaps not quite the darling of the gods but surely one of their favorite sons. They rejoiced over him at the start, worried over him a while and watched him solicitously, and now smile again. He entered politics when Cannon and Lorimer were powerful. He was of the Old Guard at Chicago in 1912, nnd yet no...

EDITORIAL PARAGRAPHS Together a colored man and a white man committed a crime down in Kansas and the colored man was sent to the grave while the white man was only sent to the calaboose, as a reminder to him of having been in had black company. "The birds have nests and the foxes have holes, but the son of man hath no place to lay his head." so runs a Biblical quotation, and the man or woman who goes out to find a house to rent in any of the large cities of the country at present will fully realize the truthfulness of the quotation.

THE PASSING THRONG In preparation for the Republican Coun ty Convention I entered into a "gentle man's agreement" with Lincoln Brooks and Ned Humes which had it been carried out, would have given me a seat in the county convention, and, perhaps, a seat in the state convention, but they saw fit to go back on their agreement and T was and will be only a silent spectator. A policitian who will break a gentleman's agreement is a human only in part and such would be politician never rises higher than an underling —an office lackey. I had a similar experience to this many years ago in a fight for the mayoralty nomination of Seattle. T was very vigorously supporting a candidate for mayor in oppositoin to Thomas J. Humes and in the wee hours of the morning on the convention day. in company with Edward B. Palmer and A. B. Stewart, we met Frank and Johnny Clancy in the Pioneer build ing and entered into an agreement to nomi nate Charles G. Austen for mayor and there by defeat the aspirations ...

South OUR NEXT PRESIDENT Directly Miles Poindexter does not seem to have one chance in a thousand to get the Republican nomination for president, but indirectly his chances seem exceed in oly good. It is very doubtful if another state, save his home state, instructs her delegates to cast their votes for him for the nomination and if there is a deadlock in the convention, which at this writing seems highly probable, then the almost entire Johnson strength will, it is claimed, go to Pomdexter. The senator himself as quite confident that much of the New York delegation will go to him, in case of a deadlock and not only from New York, but fr...

CONVENTION CATCHES The "Wood machine sent a steam roller over the convention and that, in spite of the mild protest of Senator Poindexter. After all the Chicago delegation is but partially in structed for Poindexter, and at no time can he put them even if by doing so it would redound to his political advantage. It ceil a inly looked a bit like old times when we ran onto Herb Baker and George Stephenson quietly chatting and sizing up the crowd. Once on a time at a meeting like that Baker and Stephenson could have taken snuff and two-thirds of those present would have sneezed. Among those who attracted more or less attention at the convention was W. A. Gil more, who did a great deal of work in the East in the last presidential campaign. Mr. Gilmore lived in Nome for a number of years, where he was for a time mayor. Tf there was a delegate at the convention that worked harder than the Hon. C. B. Myers, of Davenport, then we failed to lo cate him or her. The editor hereof enjoyed a long...

SIR OLIVER LODGE ON LIFE AFTER DEATH When a scientist of the standing of Sir Oliver Lodge stakes his reputation on the claim to have experimental proof that the dead still live; when crowds of men and women flock to his lectures, and mediums of all sorts do a thriving trade with the cur ious and heart-hungry, it is time for reason able men to take thought about their atti tude toward "psychic" phenomena. The first thing they need to do is to bo on their guard against their own emotional bias. Many people are instinctively repelled by the thought of seeking to enter into com munication with the dead. It sems to them a profane intrusion upon the peace of the grave. They cannot imagine that they them selves should want to communicate after death, even Mere it possible. The necro mancy of the professional medium disgusts them. They shrink from the morbidity of automatic utterances in trances. It is well to realize at once that Sir Oliver Lodge stands at the opposite of these feel ings. ...

THE PASSING THRONG The Great Northern Dock is skirmishing Tor colored men to go to work as longshore men, and 1 hough the wages are quite entic ing, yet it is a serious question in my mind, whether or not they should do so. Large number! of colored men stood by the Great Northern in iis strike prior to the one now on.some of them going so far as to sacrifice their union cards to do so, and as soon as the company made peace with the unions every colored man that had been working as strike breakers were immediately sacri ficed and discharged, and not only discharged but rightfully black listed by the union. If now they help the Great Northern out they have no guarantee but that they will be likewise treated when the strike has been amicably settled. * * # Last week I attempted in the Purely Personal column hereof to give Mr. and Mrs. Flemmings, who live on Day Street, a de served complimentary notice, and my mind seems to have gone off on a tangent at the moment I wrote the mention an...

Mr. Bruce said that he had felt it of great importance that the provision in the law placing the assistant superintendent of the colored schools in control should be safe guarded. Where he had deviated, he said, was to avoid frictions, hut in every instance he had tried to make it plain to the superin tendent his position in the matter.
