Information has reached the post
otllce department that railway mail
clerks In the middle west who have
been forced to work with negroes are
preparing complaints to Washington.
The clerks, particularly those on long
runs, maintain that often white and
colored men are compelled to work In
the same car and, as a result, to sleen
and eat together. Several weeks ago
a negro entered the postal service In
Nebraska and was put to work. Ob
jections were raised by the white
clerks, and as a result the colored man
was sent to Wyoming. Ho was as
signed to a branch line, and his labor
does not take him iuto the company
of white clerks. On some of the
longer runs in the west two or three
days are required to make the, trip.
Colored men have recently been as
signed to several of the longer runs
in company with whites. The western
clerks will ask that the colored men
l)e assigned to runs which will not
bring them in proximity to whites.

these measures unfavorable to Japan

California senate's action on pendln.-j

The chief cause of Constipation and
