Periscope f on Niibo our warning is or should be sufficient for any thinking Man. O o ? last week when the negro precinct chairmen of the new Deal party were holding a confab at the downtown Headquarters there appeared in their midst a Man who Many of them had longed to see and to hear him say something the occasion reminded us of the time when the disciples of Christ wore in conference in a closed room to which they thought there was no Way of any Entrance when from somewhere appeared their in that conference Laid the foundation for the spread of his gospel to All the world. Or. Shearn Moody was the Man who suddenly appeared among those negro Chah men. It was at this meeting that or. Moody talked freely and frankly to the negroes of this City. To say the least the Impromptu confab Between or. Moody and the negro chairmen has been the source of much inspiration to the negro members of the new Deal party. They say that now they understand. The Sentinel has contended All the time that the reason that Many negroes had a false notion of or Moody was because they had not had a Chance to meet and talk with him. They had him pictured As a Man with whiskers on for the negroes of Galveston. They found from this meeting that he or. Moody was the Benefactor of More negroes in Galveston than any other two men in the City in the employ of his various interests. Some men in the group were living in their Homes now through the indirect and some direct influence of or. Shearn Moody. Speaking of this the screw ens local no. 3 Are loud in their Praise of or. Moody for being the direct cause of them holding on to valuable property on the beachfront now. They say that if or Moody had been in any Way anxious to see the negroes off the Beach he has had any number of opportunities to do so. But instead he has held their property intact for them until they got in a position to take care of their obligations. We cite these instances because we believe that certain people would take advantage of the misinformation they have regarding certain activities in this City
