SAX.T LAKE CITY, UTAH, JANUARY 21, 1899 THE NEGRO IN THE UNITE D SUNDAY morning, Jan. 15th, the Jewish synagogue was well filled by an appreciative audience composed of both white and colored people to listen to fiev. R. A. Maynard's elaboration upon "The Negro .in the United States, What Can We do with Mr. Maynard summarized the facts relative to emancipation and said that from this survey.of what had been done by the organic law of the land it would seem that full justice had been rendered to the colored race. It is "impossible to compens- ate him for -the miseries of the earlier conditions and he does not ask this. Freedom was accepted and the task of showing himself worthy of the trust of citizenship was begun. Has the negro accomp'ished aught in this? quesaion 35 years of progress unequalled by any race in any age. host of educators, editors, lawyers, physi- cians of this race all over the land. business men who have achieved success in many branches of commercial life.

Reference was made to the Afro-American League in its an- nual congress in California, which the speaker attended with interest. Addresses in matters and manners would have been worthy any. simi- lar assembly. Also to a commend- ing address given at a Republican national convention and a magnifi- cent outburst from Frederick Douglass at> the congresses of the World's'liir.'. Such products of freedom are phenomenal. It may be said that such results could not have come without the Mood ibw minglecb with 4he colored do No. 22 the but these have certainly been serious violations of law anc justice. The north is not guiltless, how- ever. Only recently in our own city a company of educated men and Nashville students refused board any of the hotels or restaurants even though they ottered to pay double price. The manager, that ibis was occurrence. Bishop Tanner, father of the artist spoke at the World's Pair such violations of of the negro in a white man, said not an uncommon before mentioned, congresses of the many times upon the civic rights the north. He said that the indignities suffered were almost more unendurable than in the south. Surely a protest should be given by every fair- minded citizen against such out- rages, and some legal redress should be possible. But the negro can do much for himself. He should strive to be more of a thinking factor in the not this But does not affect tlie bint simplifies' it, for -the probletn in America is with the- race as it ex- ists here and not as it isiniAfriea, so that if it is largely modified, by inheritance then may be greater ability to strive their problem, for problems do, exist in spite of all the favorable facts which have been mentioned, .During the last year Judge Lynch executed ,121 persons in the United States, 103 in the south and 18 in the north. Of those in the south 91 were colored, Ial897tud governor of Georgia protested against form of lawlessness and said that a third of those executed the previous year had already been proven to be in- nocent beyond possibility of doobt. Probably innocent if Hie bare been proven. TbeTecent outrages -referred to as showing and frightful were ISFACTIOM wrongs, roes today. partisan tbe-erib of this sort in political world. The issues of to- day are new issues and individuals of all colors ought naturally to differ as to living issues. So long as the colored man will recognize no new issues he may expect little recognition politically and the con- ditions in the south are bound to ae more complicated. Education the chief solution, however. Politics is not a good field under present conditions for any one to assert their dignity. The only un- worthy part of the Afro-American congress of which I spoke was the scramble for the offices at the time of election of officers of the congress. This was because the iresident of this congress was snp- >osed to have influence in party appointments. Let the colored jeople give attention to avenues of idvance other than through poli- and education is the all im- xjrtant highway. No colored man >r woman should allow a child to eave school until he Vas completed the best education the state can five him, if he can be kept there ;ven by the greatest sacrifice. The hree "Rs" are not enough; the rrammar school is not enough; ugh school is not enough if it is jossible to send him to the uni- reraity. Culture cannot come from the minimum of education, and it is the quiet influences of real cul- ture and true refinement that se- cures respect. In one of the most prominent universities of the east. I was for three years a school mate of a colored young woman. So far as I knew this young woman was never made to feel any social dif- ference. In the dormitory, dining room, class rooms or in recreations, she was the well liked and respect- ed companion. Why? Because she was a. perfect with quiet manners, no self assertion, and perfect reserved dignity. The best sign of progress, however, is the intense missionary zeal which characterises the intelligent colored man or woman. The .college gradu- ate is ambitious to teach his race. The orator speaks in behalf of his Even the business man is ambitious tolrac- succeed that he may add to the laurels of ids people. Such a spirit will not only produce great results for the objects of this soli- citude but will be in itself the greatest cultivating force., selfishness, a yearning io help others, a desire to raise those who are bowed down will lift the spirit of him who possesses it to a higher level of character and culture that any amount of self-centered effort. Finally there is this to be re- membered. Although the trials of the past and the present are many and severe, there is much to be grateful for. Slavery, bad as it mon country may be heirs of al the ages in the long resnltsof time This able discourse is worthy of a very wide publicity, and we sin- cerely regret .our inability to re- produce it in full, for it contains many interesting facts concerning the advancement of the negro race in the United States since the race succeeded in gaining its freedom through the fortunes of war. Let all the other ministers of this city raise their voices from their pulpits in condemnation of the injustices perpetrated upon all negroes and it will not be long until prejudice, the bigoted and erroneous ideas which the masses of the people now entertain in re- lation to the negro will be eradi- cated, and then Booker T. Wash- ington will not encounter any diffi- culty in obtaining a meal in first- lass restaurants or hotels, it he should happen to visit this city.
