TO THE VOL. W. SALT LAKK OLTY, UTAH, JUNE 6, 1899 No. 41 DEATH OF C. H. J.TAYUOR. Taylor, known C. H. J. one of the most widely negro in the United States, passed away froifi Bfe Atlanta, Qa. At the helsegan journey to that undiscovered country which lies far beyond our vision, he was the Dean of the department of the Robert Moms University of At- lanta. He was also editor and -owner the Appeal. In addition to these exacting duties, he de- livered, many lectures and prac- ticed profession. He succeeded in securing the liberation of many rejn a position to know that dur- i ing the reign .of Grover Cleveland he doors of the White Home al- ways swung both ways for C. EL J. laylbr, and many times senators, imminent politicians and states- men were.compelled.to stand around n the hallways and wait until President Cleveland and Mr. Taylor inished chatting over the affairs of tote. He had no trouble nor Lifficulty in winning Mrs. Cleve- and over to his side and his re- sources and influence were so great and powerful that mighty few democrats secured any favors from I the President .unless they were negroes- of who were charged with, committing offenses for which they were not guilty. 'Many members of our race a! over this country will not be dis- posed to give him credit for the good he has accomplished for no other reason than that he was an uncompromising Jeffersonian anc Andrew JackHon Democrat.. was the first negro in the United states to publish a news paper in the interest of Democracy He began its publication in 1884 He espoused the candidacy o Grover: Cleveland and for doing s he received curses and blows from the most enlightened and intelli- gent, and also from tne nncout] and-.ignorant members of our race His family was; ostracized'and wen considered unfit to associate wit! those who affiliated with the gran old party. But amid those trying, times Mr Taylor calm and serene an deported himself like a true gentle man instead- of harboring up un- nind fedlings against those who disputed his right to think and act 'for himself. He looked down upon them with companion and labored zealously to broaden their "ads along political lines. President Cleveland felt that his obligations were so great to Mr. Taylor that it would be impossible f01 him to reward bint for .the ser- vices he had performed in behalf -of Ins election.

THAT courageous and brilliant editoress of the Ship, Bristol, Va., Mrs. C. C. Steward, belieyes in the efficacy of -prayer. But she says in referring to the Afro-American proclamation calling upon the negroes of this country to fast and pray for the purpose of preventing them from being lynched by the white Christiam.that "if the moun- tain won't come to Mahommet then Mahomtuet must go to the mountain. The white man knows how to shout and keeps Winches- ters. He teaches his wife and baby- boy to shoot. That's what the negro needs to learn. Couple that on to your prayers and fasting." Sister Steward, shake! Yon are t brave 'and noble woman; Our hearts beat in unison on the ing, shouting and fasting proposi- tion. This may be all right for old maids and those who believe that he Lord is going to ride on the outer edges of the clouds or the special purpose of redress- ing the wrongs which are; heaped upon the negro. For our part we would rather accept the advice of Mahommet and goto the mountain in case the mountain won't come near unto us, or to speak more precisely, a good louble-burrel rifle and plenty of ammunition will go a great deal farther in protecting our faailies 'rom being mobbed and lynched than all -the prayers which can be sent up to heaven. chose Weylor of But when President McKinley was inducted Jnto office he Jtenored hlmi 4rom that position to make Toomfoi one of henchmen, at- according to tne tales which had jwmething serve.

IMMEDTATCLT after the burning of Sam Hose at Newman, Qa., Bev. G. Ransom and a number of other wealthy negroes of Chicago employed a detective to go to Georgia and make a thorough in- vestigation into all the facts in connection with that horrible and revolting affair. The detective returned to Chicago and read his report before a mass meeting of negroes, June 4th, at Bethel, M. E. Church. The white detective called upon Mrs. Cranford and she informed him that "Hose did not attempt to assault her in any manner what- ever.' She says that her husband and Sam Hose quarreled, over wages and her. husband ran. into the house and went out with his revolver and as he was about to shoot Hose the latter seized an ax and threw it at him. The ax struck her husband in the head and killed him instantly. Then Hose fled from the place." Mrs. Cranford's version of the affair no doubt is .correct and it certainly putt the Atlanta Constitution and all other advocates of mob and lynch law in a very uncomfortable position. WOULD-BE LEADERS MEET. A "loyalist meeting" under the auspices of the Anacoatia Colored Republican Club, was held last night at Allen Chapel, A. M. E. Church, for the puipose of en- dorsing President McKinley's ad- ministration and the policy of the United States government during the Spanish-American war. A program composed of music by the church choir and speeches by sev- eral of the city's most prominent colored men was given before a large congregation. J. H. Lott was the presiding officer of the evening, introducing the speakers and. announcing the musical selec- tions. The first address was given by Gurley Brewer, who said, in part: "There is no doubt that, as a whole, the colored people of the United States are among the most loyal citizens of the country, but it re- mains for the negroes of Indiana- polis to be the first in a public way to do homage to the flag and to tion toward the defenseless Filipi- nos, If pains as in this enlight- ened day to have to chronicle this news to our many readers and ex- changes. We think the least these would-be negro leaders could have done was to keep still. While the leading negro bishops and preach- ers of the nation and the leading writers-and thinkers are proclaim- ing against this barbarous action of our government, a set of men meet in one of the 'most intellectual cities of the Union, our beautiful Indianapolis, and claim themselves to be the first to. start the ball roll- In other words, they rejoice that' they were -the first. to make asses of themselves and discredit the whole race of people. While the government soldiers in the Philippines are writing home "how they 'made the niggers run" and others ''that they didn't enlist to fight a little coterie of so-called negro leaders and would- be statesmen meet here and sub- missively indorse the infamy. What as Thomas B. Reed, George F. Hoar and George S. BoutwelT and many other old time frienas of the colored think of this subservient and lick- spittle action of Indianapolis ne- groes? The World sincerely hopes the the news of the disgraceful affair will not reach these eminent men. We would have thought that these men would have met and have taken action in reference to what the federal .government would do as to the lynching of four negroes in Mexico, of wUich the Indiana- polis Journal remarked: "Truly Vlexico is becoming Americanised." We are glad to say, however, that the ministers of our city took no active part in these infamous pro- ceedings, but we are sorry to have seen the house of God desecrated lor such: a purpose. We -hope the good Lord and all good people will deliver the race from such leader- World. Brother Manning you have voiced our sentiments, and all we lave to say is simply this, that if any negro be he great or small endorses the policy which the gov- ernment-is pursuing in the Philip- pine Islands, or who upholds Presi- dent McKinley's administration in any shape or manner whatever are nothing more nor less than enemies and traitors to the negro, race.
