life and property are safe only when the courts
put lust ice above all else. The mob rules w henever judg
es lecome weather vanes of public opinion.
The Supreme Court of the United States had this in
mi: d v hen it intervened in the Scottsboro case, wherein
Alabama sentenced seven Negro boys to death.
Unequal justice in the courts toward Negroes is
n • . e new*. In states like Alabama it is the custom.
Bid n r t. iiion’s highest court realizes that if the local
vo ■ > -■ ayed by the mob in the matter of life, in
time they will not protect either property or authority.
In the past investments have been safe from
l- m • •; hands only because capital could appeal and re
the final decision out of local communities. But
a nt attack ha> come to plague it—racketeering. Be
in. ; \ ioiation of the criminal laws, the local courts can
givt- ;• immunity. Once acquited by a complacent judge
eteer can thumb his nose at higher
courts. The Supreme Court knows this, and sets out to
rescue the community courts from mob control.
Judicial lynchings,— that is what the trial of a
Negro charged w ith crime usually amounts to—are of a
piece with immunity for criminals. The only differ
ence is that one is an overt act against innocence, and
the other is deliberate submission to wrrong-doing. This
machinery of injustice learned its power when it put the
Negro on the rack. Now modern criminals take refuge
in the system which race prejudice created.
In time the courts will be brought back to their
proper use. -judicial lynchings for Negroes, and judic
ial pardons for criminals will both be swept away by an
lie righteousness. Systems of oppression,
now as ever, breed in themselves the seeds of their own

Dear Sir:
L wish to acknowledge receipt of your letters of May 18th
and June 27th. I did not answer your first letter immediately as
I wished to take some time to look into the situation, and then
as 1 was compelled to be away on two occasions for business of
the District, the attention to this matter was further delayed.
The question to which you call attention has been before
us for some time and in conjunction with the Urban League, we
have endeavored to place some additional members of the colored
race on our pay roll.
We have very little turn-over here and few opportunities
present themselves, but in connection with the general laboring
work, 1 am endeavoring to give, employment to a fair proportion
of the colored population, and hope we can increase the number as
work progresses.
Yours Very truly,
T. A. LEISEN, General Manager.
by Andrew Stuart
It is with a deal of misgiving
that I attempt to express myself.
It may seem to you. that I along
with other Big shots, seem to be
raving in vain with very little, if
any constructive methods to offer
for present conditions. Let that
be as it may, and .you pay as little
attention to what 1 say as you
wish, for you can at least say
that it did not cost you anything,
nor do I ask you to regard me as
your leader. I am simply disgust
ed with conditions just as you are
and this is the only way I have of
telling you. There are those who
tell me I am a fool. T agree with
them and hope that they will ex
pect only fool things. But I want
to tell you that T did not go to
school with Congressman Bald
rige, nor am I on speaking terms
with Senator Howell, like^soine of
our representative cititens. I do
not think that tW'se gentlemen
are free from prejudice, and I do
think that they could tell you wnv
the colored soldiers were not sent
to Fort Omaha.
Everyone knows that this coun
try is facing one of the most im
portant elections since the Civil
war. It is one that should have
the attention of all groups of cit
izens, the Black brother in partic
ular. There is no group of citiz
; ens placed in the same position as
! the Negro. His like of leadership
1 among his own group, places him
at the mercy of unscrupulous pol
iticians and grafters from within
his own group. For this reason
we are the first to suffer from
any condition which mav arise in
the community in which we live.
It is nonsense for anyone to say,
that they do not care about polit
ics. or who is elected to adminis
ter the affairs of the State and
country. Negroes have blindly
supported the Republican party
up to the time of “Hoover’s elect
ion when the Lily-white Repub
licans, set about eliminating the
Negroes from the Republican
party. The colored voters must
get together; Congressman De
Priest has mapped out the only
logical plan for the Negro voters.
Whatever your politics are. or
ganize so that your vote will be
effective. If you are not regis
tered so that you can vote, regis
ter NOW!
I know what a hard time you
will have in convincing anyone
that you are not a Republican,
but you can fool them this one
time. There should be a strong
Democratic Club among our wo
men. who have their children to
think of. The men’s idea about
politics is a petty job and lots of
false pride, that they use when
lookine for votes, for their “Boss’
rhen these leaders come in con- r
tact with the Nordic politicians
after he is elected to office, they
are just “George” or “Boy” and
most of the time just “Big Boy”.
1 know that you have to listen to
someone ; but after you have heard
us big shots tell you about the
great love that our Boss has for
the Negro, go home and think the
matter over and call up this great
friend and tell him you have been
kicked out of a jim crow theatre
or that you have called at one of
the leading hotels to see some
great politician and the hotel
clerk directs you to the freight
elevator. Do this then call your
Nordic political friend and see
what they will say. Then go
down and register as a Democrat
so you can be prepared to vote
for a real friend. We have a lot
of good friends among the Demo
crats who are prepared to help ns
solve our problems. When any
one talks to you about the “K
K-K's” ask them how the white
“Masons” and “K. of C”s” are
any other white fraternal organ
ization treats the Negro, You
have as many friends among the
K-K-K’s as in any other organiz
ation. Of course T would like to
have you register as a Democrat,
if for no other reason than to
show your political oppressors,
that they do not know your polit
ies. because your skin is black.
Whatever you do register.
A. Phillip Randolph
His honor, Mayor R. L. Met
calfe, in his welcome address at
ion Baptist Church, Sunday, Aug
ust 1th, at which time A. Phillip
Randolph, President of the Bro
therhood of Sleeping Oar Porters
was the principal speaker, paid
tribute to the integrity of the
Pullman Porter. Fire Commis
sioner Roy N. Towl also spoke.
Mr. Randolph spoke of the grav
ity of the economic and industrial
situation, but offered nothing
new for its solution. He stated
that -tl5.000 was needed to win
the case for the Brotherhood now
before the courts, which comes up
in October. Mr. Randolph declar
ed if the Pullman Company would
grant an eight hour day and a
five day week, with an increase
in wages, there would he no cause
for furloughing the porters and
that the increase would give a liv
ing wage without the acceptance
of tips. It is not my aim to dis
pute the theory advanced hv Mr.
Randolph, but as a Pullman por
ter for many years. I am at lost
to see just how the Pullman Com
pany could do more to maintain
their full crew of employees at an
advanced rate of wages during
this industrial slump, when other
c-ooperations have failed. Every
:ar that is operated by the Pull
lan Company, whether in service
or deadheading, is in charge of a
porter. 1 cannot see where more
could be expected; $15,000 is a
large sum with approaching win
ter with thousands of our group
out of employment, entirely de
pendent upon charity. It would
go a long ways, if properly handl
ed to help supply the necessities
of life and bring renown to the
already famous Mr. Randolph.
The Admiralty
it is indeed a long step from
the obscurity of a Pullman Por
ter to the Admirality of the Navy
of the great State of Nebraska,
with command over the Tadpol
es, Gold Fish, and other sea mon
sters that might happen into my
dominion, but this is just what
has happened to me by a stroke
from the pen of his excellency the
Governor Theodore Metcalfe of
the State of Nebraska.
The silver braid that adorns
the sleeves of my uniform coat,
from long years of faithful serv
ice with the Pullman Company,
where 1 served such notables as
the late Mayor Jim Dalhman, Mr.
Sandy Griswold, sports writer of
the World Herald; William Jenn
ings Bryan, the present State
Sheriff, Michael Entires; Inspect
or Dan F. Danbaum, Senator and
Mrs. Gilbert M. Hitchoek; Mr. j
and Mrs. Matthews and daughter
of the Matthews Book store and
numerous others, which lies idle
on account of illness, will now
answer to show the distinction of
my Admiralty, Officialship. It
is at this moment that I thank the
Lieutenant Governor. Theodore
Metcalfe for his kindness and
confidence imposed in me and I
hope that he will be able to con
tinue in the official capacity in
which he has served the people
of this State so faithfully.
The first of our group appoint
ed to a position in the State of
Nebraska, was appointed by Mr,
Michael Endres, present State
Sheriff. The anti-marriage bill
and the boxing bill was passed
urtder a Republican Governor.
The laws of this State like the
laws of the nation, most of the
time have been administered by
the Republican party. They have
not seen fit to make it possible
for any of our group to secure
positions in the schools or other
public institutions.
Unemployed Married Men’s
Today our business and profes
sional men with the assistance of
white friends are using every
means at their disposal to bring
about a new social trend that
will forever enrich the life of this
exploited people. Thus such
men as Dr. J. B. Lennox, Father
John Albert Williams, M. E. John
son and T. C. Ross, druggists, C.
C. Galloway, managing editor of
the Omaha Guide, the Rev. O. J.
Burckhardt. J. 0. Bell. J. R. Jack
son, and J. IT. Young. These
gentlemen are of the very high
est character. Their leadership
and views upon questions of im
portance to our group should be
consulted. No longer will we al
low ourselves to be represented
by irresponsihles. Our social ec
onomic, industrial and political
life can be safely left in the hands
of these gentlemen.
Andrew Stuart,
Republican Party and the Negro
One of the most difficult prob
lems that confronts the Negroes of
this country in the coming elect
ion is that they have no intelli
gent reason for supporting the
Republican party. While to be
a Democrat reflects intelligence.
The Hoover administration has
all but eliminated the Negro pol
itics. The Communist and Soc
ialist parties are bidding for the
■Negro vote. Their platform ap
peals to some of our people just
as it does to members of other
groups. But the intelligent Ne
gro knows that he cannot support
either party. Thus they have
turned in large numbers to the
Democratic party. They will pay
no attention to the possibility of
Mr. Garner becoming President
of this country by the possible
disability of Mr. Roosevelt. He
knows that John N. Garner could
do no worse than Hoover. One
has only to look at the progress
of Negroes in Jack Garner’s
home State, where they are en
gaged in every known business
and profession and work at al
most every trade. This cannot
be said of Iowa or California, the
home states of Mr. Hoover. Where
ever Mr. Hoover and Mr. Curtis
go, they seem to hang out a sign
‘No Negroes wanted.” At the
Boulder dam, one excuse after
mother has been made to keep
from giving our group wrork.
