Texas our state again leads the nation in lynching. She has
again devoted herself bo assiduously to the task of taking human
life without due process of law and in intricately barbarous ways
as to rank first in the nation and probably in the world as an ex-
pert in breaking the laws which her splendid people through
their representatives at great public expense have enacted.
Is she proud of the fact? Dcos she glory in it?
It would seem so. For if she felt otherwise long before now

Everv now and occasionally there comes news of a fresh
colonization scheme. There have been many. Africa Canada and
Mexico all have been named as "promised lands" for the poor
down trodden Negro.
Latest of such ventures is one now in process of completion
John Steamer of Chicago is now in the Mexican capitol ne-.
gotiating with the Obregon government for the land desired.
Steamer is said to represent an American Negro syndicate with
$7000000 capital. In interviews with the Mexican Department
of Agriculture Steamer has set forth the desirability from the
Mexican point of view of colonizing rich cotton lands of Mexico
with a race which is suited for the production of cotton.
The Mexican Government has indicated its willingness to
have the colonists locate in one section it being contrary to the
Mexican policy to permit the erection of large foreign colonies ex-
tending over any considerable area. It is believed likely however
that permission will be granted to the Negroes to settle in coast-
wise locations in the states of Sonora Sinaloa Guerrero and Ox-
aca utilizing such lands as have been completely abandoned and
allowed to return to the primitive condition.
Before making application to the Mexican authorities the Ne
gro syndicate is said to have made extensive investigations of re
gions regarded as suitable for colonization and it is believed no
difficulty on the part of the Mexican Government will be encoun-
tered provided the syndicate produces the amount of capital
This venture may be successful.. For the benefit of .those
who have such faith in it we hope so.
But to us it appears that our meager . ability at governing
ourselves and of developing our own concerns needs more atten-
tion in America where our chances for development even it un-
der unfavorable circumstances to some extent.are better.
Mexico like Africa must be developed. As. we now see it it
is a rich land which the revolutionary temperament of its inhabi
tants has kept from real development. Its states have reverted
to wilderness : its government is insecure : its inhabitants have
learned shiftlessness and idleness. k

News dispatches of recent date tell of the institution by Har-
vard most widely known of all American universities of a sys-
tem of discrimination which aims at the exclusion of Nproes and
Jews Her president justifies it by asserting that harmony must
prevail in the institution an? since Jews and Negroes make up the
minority of the student h;)dy they must suffer the will of the
majority composed to a Teat extent of Southerners.
It 13 disappointing to realize that the splendid traditions and
practices of equality and fairness which have characterized this
institution are to be cast aside irk this day at the bequest of those
who have by different training been rendered incapable of com-
prehending anu entering heartily into sympathy ith them.
The agreement of the authorities of that schori nitb such a
program of discrimination will form a blot upon sne of the most
commendable records of accomplishment evoi made by an Ameri

representing the highest and the most democratic of American
institutions willfully remove itself from close adherence to the
very principle which gives to education its value in American life?
America has indeed retrogressed when the highest type of
her schools by such action as tnis confesses that the principle of
democracy and equality of opportunity are mere words meaning
nothing. The continuation of such a regime at Harvard will
mean nothing less.
But we ourselves may gainfully see in this disposition by
Harvard a sign all to easily apparent in many other quarters cf
a growing disposition to shunt us aside or remove us altogether
from the majority of American schemes and while we may be-
moan the fact that such should be the crse and feel that proper
ideas of right should correct such conditions we still are con-
fronted with the fact that such is actually the case. We are br-
ing removed. r'e are proscribed.
Bewailing facts does not change them. Faith in the future
becomes worth while only as actual works accompany it. . .
We must have education. And our opportunities in this re-
gard must increase rather than decrease.

the policy of uwvitutions to which we contribute nothing tangible.

That happened on Dec. 2 1917. In the last thirty years 3443 persons are
known to have been lynched in the United States and of other lynchlngs
authenic records do not exist. Most of the lynchlngs have been in the South ;
but lynchlnbB have occured in all the states but five and all these are In
New England. A few years ago lynchlngs were epidemic In Tennessee;
the news reports of the last few days have brought us talcs of lynching
horrors in Texas. A very .large pecentage of these mob executions are
by burning. The case cited above is one of the worst of which we have
the facts yet it Is not exceptional Accounts in like cases include such de-
tails as the filling of the air with stench burning flesh the. carrying away
of pieces of bone and chunks of the body of the victim as prized souviners
of the occasion. Mere accusation is abundant warrant for one of these
hideous killings. There are no trials. Frequently there Is no evidence. The
mobs have no fear ofpunishment as witness the words of the late
Henry Watterson: . ..
Lynchlngs should not be misconstruted. It is not an effort to punish crime.
It is a sport that has as Its excuse the fact that a crime of greater or less
gravity has been committed or is alleged. A lynching party is rarely made
up of citizens indignant at the law's delays or failures. It often is made
up of & mob bent upon diversion and proceeding in a mood of rather
ferocity tto hve a thoroughly good time Lynchers often. are

Today the constitutionality of the Dyer antl-lynchlng bill is questioned.
It is now in the hads of the Senate cimmlttee on udiciary The one ob-
stacle to Its possible enactment is said to be this constitutional Issue. Mr.
Moorfield Storey appeared a few days ago before this committee and pre-
sented a brief for the bill. From that brief we have taken the matter used
above.. Mr. Storey himself deemed that matter of sufficient pertinence to
lead his brief with it He then proceeds with an elaborate argument In
defense of the constitutionality of the measure on three grounds. One
source of power for passing the law found in the doctrine that there
Is a peace of the United States which Congress has the right to motntaln.
and a third in tht fifth amendment that "No person shall be deprived of
life liberty or property without due process of law." ' .
In general Mr. Storey holds that "the citizen of the United States is
entitled to protection from the government to which he owes allegiance.
The shame of the stigma that ylnching smears over the pages of our
history no one can exaggerate. Foreign people think our tolerence
of this evil with wonder and loathing. From the begining lynching has
been a crime under the laws of the states. Every state has plenty of law
against these crimes. Obviously no action by the states is going to termi-
nate them. Federal action ia the only recourse. In its last National platform
the Republican party promised1' legislation agalnstt lynching. President
Harding has urged legislation. The House passed this bill 230 to 119. Ought
the Senate H refuse to act because of alleged doubt of the constitutionality
of this legislation? No; the bill should become a law. Then Congress will
have done its full duty and if the constitutional Issue is raised the re-
sponsibility will pass on to th supreme court for final adjudication.

and industrial independence. He had ceased to be even an idealisi. His the-
ories were a confusing admixture of mythology tradition and superstition.
Liberty as an institution was something of which he had no knowledge.
Neither he nor those who sponsored him In his struggles to r?a ;h the light
could site a convincing precedent to show that even in the end the battle
could be won. That was the condtion of the emancipated slaves a half-century
ago in the United States. It is not strange that both the North and the South
viewed with some misgivings the problem which circumstance had imposed
upon the people for solution. The emancipator who struck off the chains
which bound the Blave to his human master dealt with the problem as a
morl one. with this accomplished his work was done. It was not for him
to regenerate and reconstruct the race. That work for the Negro and that
work the Negro seems in a fair way to accomplish.
But it may be that the progress which the Negro with the aid of Negroes
Is makln Is not exactly along the line which the leaders and champiens of
the campaign for full social and political eguality had ftrstmarked out.
Booker Washington knew the capabilities and weaknesses of the people of
his race better than many of the white friends who have since come to see
the wisdom of his constructive plans. He knew that the Negro could not be
raised to full social equality or perhaps to full political equaity by any
artificial process. He saw the road of pfogres leading from where the highly
trained Industrial endeavor into a realm of usefulness and service to him-
self and others. Booker Washington's successor at Tuskegce Dr. Moton po-
ssesses the same clear vision. It is they who have emat-cipated and are eman-
cipating the Negro from his self-imposed enslavement to a hope that can
never be realized equality without fitness.
The Negroes of the United States are progressing today just to the ex-
tent that they are following he path which leads first to their own industrial
and intellectual emancipation. They cannot be hewers of wood and carriers
of water mently and hope ever to become directors of thought or even the
crude shapers of human destiny. Only those Who have learned to serve can
be of service and only those who are able to serve mankind acceptably can
be called. This lesson is not for the Negro alone but it is one he must
learn sooner or later as he-will. . "
