STATES AJ;D TIIZL1
Many of the states are rejoicing
through the medium of the press at
the failure of the Dyer Bill. It is
their contention that its failure Is
a vindication of the rights of states
to govern themselves.
We do not doubt but that the
Dyer Rill has failed for the recent
speech of Senator Borah seemingly
aimed at it was enough to time1)
the demolition of its chances of pi.3-
sags. But the death of the Dyer Bill
should be welcomed by states only
because it gives to them the oppor-
tunity to prove their w jrlh to the
right to govern their owj affairs

of the opposition to the Dyer Bill
at least as Southern and lynching
states were concerned was centered;
not in the defense of lynching with
one acccrd they deplored it but in
the invasion of their rights as

Again we are celebrating the day of cur emancipation from
physical slavery. Our programs will be miihy; our orators will
be eloquent; we all will eat to repletion and enjoy ourselves to the
full reaping satisfaction from hearing recounted in various ways
the barbarities of slavery days and the story of the rapid pro-
gress which we have made in little better than the half a century
since. - It is pleasant to think that in little tetter than fifty
years exslave3 have acquired 22000000 acres of land 600000
homes and 45000 splendid churches. Our hearts swell with pride
when we learn that we Negroes after less than sixty years of
freedom operate 78 banks 100 insurance companies 50000 busi-
ness houses with a combined capital of more than $150000000;
that we have 60000 proffesional men 44000 teachers 400 news-
papers and peridofcals and are 80 per cent literate.
It is a wonderful record and well worth recounting on such
an occasion as this. For it is true that the survivors of slavery
days now live in an age more glorious than they could have imag-
ined as they prayed stealthily for a freedom which seemed hope-
lessly far away. We have progressed. We have by our progress
amply justified every atom of energy and every minute of hard-
ship spent in that civil strife which though bitter has resulted
in a closer union of the several states of our great nation. We
ought to be joyful on this occasion.
But with our rejoicing there should be mixed the most sober
reflection of which we are capable as to what our future record
will be. .
No longer are we actual physical slaves bound as chattel to
human masters and overlords to be bought or sold at will. Ameri-
ca no longer is a nation part slave holding glorying in the pos-
session of "human cattle."
But America is the nation which more and more is saying to
the descendants of her once slaves "your days of infancy now are
past; your record proves you able to take care of yourselves. Re-
alize that because of your physical peculiarities and the history
of your stay upon this continent that your members are beings
separate and distinct set out from the great American group by
some fate whether beneficient or unkind. You must by your own
effort and accomplishment succeed or fail. It k up to you to
face the condition which actually confronts you and find a solu-
tion to your problem or take the place to which your failure will
Such an attitude exists but it is not altogether unsympa-
thetic. Its seeming severity is tempered by the fact that as part
of the great civic unit we have at least some of the rights and lib-
erties accorded to our fellows. In theory we have them all in
fact they are limited. . j

We are still slaves to the characteristic which keeps us from
having that faith in ourselves which will guarantee a high de-
gree of collective efficiency. Our ability to cooperate in all things
for our common good is too limited. -
We are slaves to petty jealousy and internal bickerings which
sap the life blood from our inovements and organizations.
We are slaves to pur superstitions and fears being governed

by circumstances which we now see no way to control. But it is
no less true that we are surrounded by opportunities in abundance

SPECIAL TRAINS AND BETTER ACCOMODATIONS.
jDne of the contributing causes of the pleasantness of the
Grand Lodge at San Antonio was the fact that travel for the
delegates was made comfortable and pleisant by the special trains
from North and South Texas which bore them to and fro.
. Cei tainly it is true that for once the payment of railroad
fares by Negroes guaranteed to them comfortable accomodations.
The Grand Chancellor is to be commended for his splendid ar-

Arguments for better accomodations not backed by fact3 are
and always tive been futile. Vituperation and abuse will not
mend matter .! But it does seem that an appeal to the railroad
managements In terms of the money lost by inferior accomoda-
tions might bving results.
It is estimated that the value of I'm two Pyihian Specials to
the M. K and T. railway was about $10000. The business was
given to lu.it road because it offered the best accomodations to
the travellers. ' ' .
$10000 is a sum which commands respect even with a rail
There are at 'east six different Grand Lodge gatherings held
in Texas to which special trains could be run.

Could it not be that the

and by such arguraent enlist the support of the officials in secur
ing better accomodations? It at leas'1 is worth a trial. -

Providence can furnish Texas is a great state.
In poise in respect for law in that altitude of mind which makes
for orderly government established Justice and the triumph of Christ-
tian civilization Texas baa room for improvement.
During the last year this state has become a stamping ground for the
mask and mob.
First there were a few whippings and warnings and other illicit acts
of violence then hangings then burnings and lastly the dragging of a
roasted corpse through the streets of a great city while raving men as is
reported fought to slice souvenirs from the putrid thing.
We have waited for the voice of protest but in vain. We have waited
for what we know to be a- shocked and disapproving majority to make it-
self heard but without result. One business man takes the trouble to let
us know he dissents. All the rest is a vast silence.

We only mock the struggles and achievements of our forebears to
call it a manifestation of white supremacy.
It was white supremacy that insisted n the Bill of Rights that pro-
cured trial by jury that demanded the defendant be given the benefit of
a doubt that insisted on conviction and punishment only after positive
proef of guilt.
It was white supremacy that evolved a government of law and that
proclaimed the necessity of obedience to constituted authority.
It was white supremacy that drew the line between liberty and li
cense that wrote the Declaration of Independence that framed the con-
stitution of the United States that undertook to stamp out class creed

White civilization has long since concluded that though impulsive

- White civilization Is not predicated on what should be done to retal-

preserve the constructive power of intelligence.
Even putting it on that narrow basis of race discipline tor which its
apologists contend mob ruie'-ae wet have come to know it is eating at the
very bowels of white civilization In this state.
What it may visit on a black man here and there is as nothing com-
pared to what it is sure to visit on the general attitude of white men to-
ward the law the government and those standards of regulated Justice
which have come down to us through the centuries of hard-fought pro-
gress. . '
Disrespect for the law and it is disrespect to supersede the law no

cubated no man may predict where it will end.
We are not dealing with something that can be Invoked and discarded

IF WE CONTINUE
The burning of human beings "Is not only an expression of outraged
public mortality" says George Bernard Shaw. He declares it is "also a
sport for which a taste can ba acquired much More easily and rapidly than
a taste for coursing hares Just as a tasto for drink can be acquired from
brandy and cocktails more easily 4 nd rapidly than from beer or sauterne.

Its own hands is no government at all. : Mr Shaw says "If Landrn can go
to his guillotine unmolested In France and his British prototype who
drownrd all his wives in their baths can be peaceably hanrsd in England"
he says "Texas can protect its criminals by simply bringing its civtllzatlor
up to the French and Britisi level." v
Reports from the South support' Mr. Shaw. In his claim that lynching
Is partly a sport.
People must be ('jinking of something besides law and order when
they burn a Negro boy over a slow fire and when men struggle to get
parts of the remains of a burned Negro man as wouvinirs. If this sort of
thing goes on unchecked it is easy to believe that white men may become
victims as well as Colored.
But the trouble starts with the Negroes and Mr. Shaw mak 1 too
easy a problem of it when he makes comparisons with Landru and the
BritiBh wife-murderer. There is no reason to think that an American
"Bluebeard" could not be sent to his death vithout Interference by the
mob ' ' . -.
It is also easy for us in the North to say that lynching must stop. We
might not do any better ourselves undr the same conditions as exist in the
South. But that does not prevent us from seolng the truth. We hear s
about state rights but If th-i states don't have the right to keep Negroes
In slavery hov cab they have the right to lynch .them and burn them?
It Is said by opponents of federal action that to try to get national
uction f gainst lynchlDg would make necessary the 'solution of the whole
