And tolls and climb
Where rough hills are.

hating beea bora and raised In tb atate

prejudic against the' negro has few, ht
any, limitations, (which. In my Judgment
Is without foundation), I want te add my
protest against the action ot th Ameri
can Bar asoc tattoo committee ta exclud
ing Hon. William H. Lewes from member
ship In the association after he waa once
elected. His knowledge of tha law and
Ma professional ethics are in no wis
diminished by the color of his skin.
The negro ht not responsible for being
in tbat country. Hla presence here cre
ate a problem which must he solved de
cently and wisely. His tot la life ia pa

struction from every source, socially,
economically, poll tic ally and otherwise.
