Herbert Hoover—Slave Trader, Negro
Hater and Jim Crow Expert

With such a brilliant record of ex
ploitation—which means money-mak
ing for the capitalists at the expense
o<f the workers Hoover went to China.
There he cruelly exploited Chinese
coolies in the mines, forcing them to
work for 10 or 15 cents a day under
the most dangerous conditions. So
heedless was he of human life, that he
persistently refused to install in his
mines even the meagre safeguards
required by law.
t alued W ood Above Lives
“The disregard of human life,” he
once stated, “permitted mining by
economy in timber, and the aggrieved
relations are amply compensated by
the payment of $30 (in American
money $15) per man lost.”
H(*rver, the mine manager, “found
it cheaper to pay $15 whenever Chi
nese laborers were killed, than to
properly timber the mine,” says Wal
ter Liggett in his book, “The Rise of
Herbert Hoover.”
The authors of the book, “Wash
ington Merry-Go-Round” speak of1
Hoover’s remark that in China, he
found chaining a coolie to a stake in
the hot sun all day long, an effective :
method of discipline, which would also
insure a minimum of strikes.
Pieces of wood were more precious ’
to Hoover than human life! This
savagery recommended Hoover as ]
sufficiently hard-boiled for any cruel i
enterprise in South Africa.

was, it remains insignificant besides
his slave-trading activities in South
In 1904, after the Boer War, the
white mine-owners told the African
natives that their wages in the mines,
with food and huts, must be cut from
$9.40 to $6.60 per month, about 26
cents a day. The robust Kaffirs re
fusedThey were unwilling to submit
to the imperialists, American or
With this “labor problem” on his
hands, Hoover conceived the idea of
enslaving Chinese coolies and making
them work for the mere pittance
which the Kaffirs had refused.
Whereupon a slave-trading deal was
concluded, which is so monstrous as
to seem incredible. The record, how
ever, stands in print in numerous of
ficial publications of the English gov
ernment, in reprints of speeches made
in Parliament, and n the London pa
pers of that time.
Hoover was then in charge of the
Chinese Engineering and Mining
Company, a British firm which he had
helpd to organize in one of the most
shameless steals.
“On April 18, 1904, the Chinese En
gineering and Mining Company, Ltd.,
sold into slavery 200,000 fellow hu
man beings. These were Chinamen,”
says the writer John Hammill. Al
though 200,000 were contracted for
60,000 were shipped before this nefar
ious practice was uncovered.
Profits from Slave-Ships
Not only did Hoover profit through
exploiting the labor of these coolies,
but he was also interested in the ship
ping company which conducted the
slave-traffic between China and South
me cnarge ior transporting coolies
was $35 a head. Under the contract,
Hoover’s company was to get $10 for
each coolie rounded up, and $25 more
per head for transportation. (At 25
cents a day, they would have to work
220 days to earn this $55.)
The Chinese were shanghaied. They
weer told of a veritable paradise with
ideal working conditions and “garden
Many of them were thus fooled into
signing ap for three years of slavery.
Even the reactionary ex-premier of
England, Lloyd George, in a speech
before Parliament, denounced these
advertisements for coolies as fraud
ulent. flj«i .! |
In the course of 18 months, over
60,000, mostly agricultural workers,
had thus been duped about the nature
of their work.
These were carried overseas to be
brutally beaten at work which the
Kaffirs had rejected.
Coolies Crowded on Ships
Though the law allowed only 1,000
on a ship, Hoover crowded almost
twice that number on. Many died on
the voyage, and many others goaded
into desperation at the intolerable con
ditions, are known to have jumped
overboard. They preferred death to
Hoover’s slave-ships.
These horrors recall the nightmares
of the Negro slaves transported in
the 17th century to America. Indeed
a British statesman said in Parlia
ment that the mine owners must have
sought their model from the southern
landlords before the Civil War.
The survivors of this awful trip
were rushed to the mines, where they
slaved hundreds of feet underground,
in knee-deep water and constant rain,
rhe “garden cities” proved to be filthy
prison stockades, closely guarded by
armed men. The coolies were packed
into abominable quarters where free
movement was denied them. The fate
jf those caught wandering from the
estricted area or of those attempting
.o escape, may easily be imagined.
Not only were those men forced to
slave 10 hours a day for 25 cents, but
heir pay was further reduced by
‘fines” placed against them at the
dightest pretext.
"By Order of H. C. Hoover”
All of the orders of the company
vere personally signed: “H. C.
loover.” The company paid 20 to 30
>er cent dividends on its more than a
nillion dollar capitalisation.
So inhuman and cruel was this slav
try, that it became an international
candal and was prohibited. Not how- j
ever, before more than 60,000 coolies
had been shipped to Hoover’s mines
at a tremendous profit to this twen
tieth century slave-driver.
Between the years when Hoover
left South Africa, and the time of the
world war, there is no record of any
outstanding JimCrow or anti-Negro
action on his part. The reason is
simple; Hoover was not at any time
during these years in contact with
Negro or colonial toilers. His chief
activity during this period consisted
of selling, in England and in Europe,
worthless stocks, and piling up im
mense profits for himself and the
companies he represented.
But almost immediately upon his
return to the United States, Hoover
was responsible for two actions which
endeared him to the Negro-hating
bosses of Amecira, and had not a
little to do with his elevation to the
presidential chair. These activities
were his work as Chairman of the
Special Commission on Mississippi
Flood Relief ,and his thefts in Liberia
for the benefit of Harvey Firestone,

called, she stated that she lived at
2513 M St., and came home Thursday
Sept. 25, about 6 p. m. At that time
Ballard Hawkins was sitting down
stairs talking to Oscar Muffet, the
man's home where they lived. She
went in and asked Hawkins for money
to buy food for supper. He gave
her the money and she and a friend
Ethel Booker went and bought gro
ceries, and she then cooked supper.
She called Hawkins to his supper,
and at this time a telephone call came
for Mrs. Booker next door. She
went with Mrs. Booker to answer the
call. When she returned to her
house, she sat down to eat and an
argument started. Marie Fellows
states that she got up and said, “Well
you didn’t want me to eat with you
anyway.” Then we started fighting.
Mr. Moffet came in and tried to part
us. She stopped in the hall to pick
up her beads where he had broken
them, and fix her dress that was
torn. She then said to Hawkins
“Come upstairs I want to talk to
you." She and Hawkins went up
stairs followed by Ethel Booker.
They all went into their bed room and
the argument started again (the na
ture of the argument was not dis
closed) but she further stated that
Hawkins was drunk and she was so
bert. She said Hawkins was seated
on the bed and she said “Ain’t you a
shamed of your self?” and he said
“No your-needs a beating.”
And in the heat of the argument, he
started after a vase and she pushed
him back, then he started toward the
dresser and she made for the dresser,
opened the drawer took out the gun
and started firing. Then she states
when she starts shooting he was still
seated on the bed and did not move
until she fired the fifth shot, the one
which killed him. He attorney Dorn
pleaded for dismissal of the case or
change the case to manslaughter.

first degree murder. No bond.

After nursing an idea for years
that all business places especially
where my race contribute largely to
their support, should employ some
members of the race. < Talking to
several race leaders and Buehler Bros

at 24th and Lake Sts., I first opened
an account with them and watched the
Race people go and come. Finally I
asked the manager, at that time, Mr.
Poindexter, about what per cent of
his business was colored. He told
me about 60 per cent. He being the
local manager, I took it up with him
about colord help, which he didn’t take
kindly to, so I didn’t get very far.
In a short while the present manag
er, Mr. Frank Rogers was named in
his place. I went over the matter
with him. He readily agreed that he
in turn would take the matter up with
the district manager, Mr. Harry In

ed to me that he could not do any
immediately I closed my account and
told my friend Mr. Rogers that I did
not blame him as I thought he was

places where we could make some
money rather than spend it. A few
months ago Mr. Fred Kleiber was
named district manager, succeeding
Mr. Ingram. Mr. Rogers, a wonder
ful little man, placed the matter be
fore him. Whereupon, they called
me in and told me that they were
ready to consider my proposition, and
asked for suggestions I gave my o.
pinion that we should have a butcher

are employed, they gave my second
request, a job for a school boy, Satur

grand old party this year, is said to

There will be no separate bureau
this year. Chairman Sanders made
it clear that there would be an entire
absence of anything which might be
construed as “Jim Crow”. The color
ed political workers will be a defiinite
and integral part of the general cam

goup will be in charge oif activities in
their especial fields. There will, how
ever, be no separation or segregation
and all groups will be under the im

To Employ Colored Help
According to Fred E. Kleiber, new
district manager, The Buehler Bros,
stores which have always been noted
for their quality meats at bargain
prices are to launch a drive for new
customers. Mr. Klever said that it
was his belief that every man was
entitled to equal consideration and to
prove his point he has placed Jasper
Cole, son of Jasper Cole, city fireman
in the grocery department of the 24th
and Lake St., Store and promises to
employe a colored butcher in the near
future. Mr. Klever is well known
on the southside where he worked for
many years as store manager for one
«f the Buehler Mkts., He has the
acquaintances of some of the best
known colored business men and wo
men all of whom seem to be of the
opinion that he will make a splendid
and fair minded district manager.
The new manager said it was the
policy of the store to treat all cus
tomers with the greatest amount of
courtesy whether they made purch
ases of a dime or a dollars’ worth,
and that all new as well as old cus
tomers would find that their dimes
would go as far or further at the
Buehler Bros. Mkt., as any other store
in the city,
