Whnt the Press of the Coun-
try Says About the Riots
White Man's Dntr.
' (Union S. C. Tlmus)
The safeguarding of the right of
the black man protecting mm m
the holding of property and granting
him the opportunity to develop alon?
all lines that Le may be able to de
velop are some of the duties that
devolve upon the white man in his
relation to the black man. The white
man owes it 'to the black man to
set him a high standard or personal
moral conduct The Immoral white
man is the greatest enemy the black
u a mmac0 to the
white man as well. Most of the
frletioa between the races grows out
of the attitude of the immoral white
man. Such men are sowing to the
wind and will reap the whirlwind.
During the next ten years we are
going to reap some of the whirlwind
unless all signs fall.
Condition not Theory.
(Spartanburg S. C. Journal)
Let's hope that Washington will
learn a valuable lesson from the
present experience and that congress
will come to realize that it is a con-
dition and not a theory that confronts
(Chattanooga Tenn. Times).
All these outbreaks against the
Negro are simply indicative of an ex-
isting national distrust of him as a
citizen and in no way prove that
he cannot make himself a welcome
citizen in any community. It sim-
ply proves to him that conditions still
render it necessary that hef conform
a trifle more circumspectly to ' the
laws customs and requirements of
the communities in which he may
reside than white persons even of
no more education or intelligence
than he possesses. That is a con-
ditions and not a sound theory that
confronts him. It is due more to an
historical and sentimental than a
race prejudice and therefore more
difficult to be overcome; and it can
only be overcome by the members
of the race themselves.
. The Lesson Taught
(Knoxville Tenn. Sentinel).
What lesson then should both
races learn from the ugly experience
to which the federal capital Is be-
ing subjected. All should learn and
have the lessons Impressed upon them
that thore are certain respect in
which the races cannot invade or in-
fringe upon each other's preserves
without precipitating race conflict
and all should have the lesson drill-
ed and instilled into them to re-
ligiously regard and follow the dic-
tates of this lesson.
(Union S. C. Times)).
The race riots in Washington con-
tinue to be serious. It is not a very
edifying sight -to be sure that the
capital city should develop such a
situation and it should be a warning
to the rest of the country.
of bringing peace.
Race Newspapers. '
(New Orleans La. Item).
Unfortunately is a more or less
incendiary Negro press in the North.
These papers are Bold largely because
they coutinually harp on the alleged
wrongs committee against Negroes
and because they are constantly ap-
pealing to race consciousness.
They collect the most lurid stories
from every quarter which when they
are read and believed are bound to
stir up hitter animosities and resent-
ments among the Negroes. They are
less newspapers than race progan-
These papers and leades encourag-
ed by Northera Negroes who have
political social and financial ends
to gain keep a great elemen' of the
Negro face in a constant attitude of
hostility toward their white neigh-
bors. . .

In two directions effort at education
and effort at developing .jnong both
whites and Negroes a high sense of

j UiOst0n mnsuaa science monitor)
Thus a high order of citizenship
1 la demanded. For It !s going to be
a;r-r.r?o clcir that crime is a matter
ifcf the individual not of tie mass.
If an individual Negro insults a white
woman it is that individual who must
be punished not any man of black
skin whom a mob takes a notion to
go after. And if white men singly
or In groups attack or injure Ne-"
groes or undertake to punish even
a criminal Negro without due process
of law then even the federal power
Itself should be called into play if
need be to discover those individual
white offenders -and make them legal-
ly amendabli.- Mass Judments of in-
dividual guilt mob action to discover
and puntch culprits are let us say
it . plainly too often tolerated with
respect to Negroes when they would
stir the country If similarly and
with similar persistence applied to
white men. It is time that such in-
justice should be corrected. A-l Ne-
groes are not bad all whites are
not good. It is time for this great
community the United States to
recognize this iatt and to bring out
and make use -of all that is good
and true in each- race by setting It-
self fairly and fearlessly to discover
and to correct whatever is evil in
each. The thing to be remembered
ia that the true solution of the diffi-
culty lies In the discovery and cor-
rection of evil no matter wher or
by whom expressed.

(Indianapolis Ind. Times).
The race riots have revealed the
need of more schools like the Hamp-
ton and Tuakegee Institutes.
As to the Question.
(Brooklyn N. Y- Life).
As to the Negro question per se
it will continue to be a grave menan-
ce so long as the Fourteenth and
Fifteenth Amendments to the Consti-
tutions are flouted in a large sec-
tion .of the country. Hard as it may
be there Is apparently no choice for
the States which have reason to fear
Negro domination between submitting
to a reduction of their representation
in Congress by establishing quali
fications for the franchise which
would bar the illiterate whites as
well as most of the Negroes and per
mitting - the blacks to exercise the
right of suffrage Indiscriminately. Our
efforts in behalf of "onnressed neo-

Are We Civilised?
(Rochester N. Y. Times)
Whatever may be the cause or
pretext the whole business of race
rioting is sickening and dishearten-

beasts makes one wonder it after
all we are eVen partly civilized.

A Created Test.
(New York Globe)
Since the Negro has had his lib
erties abused his constiWonal rights
laughed at his person insulted it is
a gcater test to ask him to appeal
to the law than it is to ask tl s same
thing of the white rowdies who have
been the aggressors in most of the
recent race conflicts. The request
must still be nude however for
when both sides descend alike to
the brutal arguments of the mob
tho aagels themselves might despair
to Europe to fight for America they
are good enough to be treated with
equality under the law in America.
Much as the fatal results of this new
spirit ' of solf respect and Independence
on the part of the Negro are to be
regretted It cannot but be a matter
of congratulation he has acquired
that spirit Now perhaps he will
gain the Justice that is his due and
that he could never hope to gain as
long as he tamely submitted to in-
sult and injury.

Commerce has a committee on
labor of which a Negro has been
made a member. The City also has
a Negro Workers' Advisory Commit-

shortage of the past year both these
committees have rendered signal ser-

Ncgros card-indexed every Negro cap-
able of work and then carried on a
campaign of education which brought

ored workers alike "every able bodied
man and boy In the community had
his shoulder to the wheel In an ef-
fort to win the war." - -
Following this service the city
authorities on receiving complaints
of conditions in the Negro section

Knoxville. The work of the white
committee is purely advisory; but
the Board and the League will work
together for the business and civic
welfare of the community at large.

Memphis Tenn. Last winter thirty
leading business men of Memphis
met to discuss not "the Negro prob-

trial development by securing a
healthy efficient labor supply con-

70000 Negroes of .the city offered
abundant material for this product
if they could be held 'against North-
ern competition by opportunities as
good at home as could be found else-
where. In order to find out what the Ne-
groes themselves wanted these em-
ployers called their leaders together
organized among them a Central Civ-
ic Committee and told them that if
they would draw up a satisfactory
plan of civic and industrial develop-
ment for their people white business
men would back It It was suggested
by one of the employers that when
a plan was approved the Negroes
should provide one-third of the nec-
