negro very naturally concludes that

not and should not imply a reward

and there are good reasons why the
negro race among us should not ask

white man. In the first place, race

should, for temporary expedients,
set afloat negro aspirations for office
and humiliate their own and their
family's race pride by bargains and
divisions of spoil to get his vote !
What man of pride wants an office

elect him to ? It seems to us to be

A novel method of raising money
