empllfies the best courage that God
lifts made in man. He ia editor of the
"Houston Informer" a weekly paper.
He ranks not only'among the moat
courageous of humana.ln-general but
what is more than that; he is one
of the most courageous Negroes In
the southern State. The highest and
truest type of courage on this plan
is that of a black man In Mlssisippl or
Texas. It requires more courage for
a black man in Texas to be a normal
human being than for a white Texan
to be a "hero;" for when a black man

in much more danger of his life than
Is the white Texan who tries the
dare-devil business. It requires more
courage for a Negro to ride on a
Pullman car In Texas than for white
to face and fight a dozen robber
bandits. If the white Texan fought
off the bandits and saved his purse
he would be praised by all men and
perhaps rewarded; but If a Negro ia
a Pullman fought off his would-be
murderers and saved his life he would
next have to fight every other white
man in the state from the governor
He would find more hell after ha ex.

This shows the whole hypocrisy; the
objection is not to contact with Col-

ored people. The chivalrous Texas

It requires more courage for a Ne.

for any white editor to print treason

(By A. N. P.)
Washington D. C June 1. The Dy-
er' Anti-Lynchlng Bill has struck a
snag. An opinion that the measure
ia unconstitutional and should not be
enacted by Congress was sumbitted
to the Senate Judiciary committee by
a sub-committee headed by Senator
Borah. Its friends fear this action
will mean the . death of the bill. Cer.
talnly there Is little hope for action
at this session of Congress.

publican Vermont were said not to
be in complete disagreement but be-
lieved the bill might well be passed
and be submitted to a test before the
Supreme Court of the United States.
Senator Borah - and his associated
contended that the Supreme Court of
the United States had decided square-

It would be useless to present to the
