    These are good examples of some of the forces with
which Mr. Wilson will have to contend. It will take high
courage for him to stand Tros, Tyrusve, mihi nullo dis-
crimine-making no distinction between Trojan and Tyrian,
black and white. For our part we regard him not as a
menace, but a hope.
    The Negro Democrats are now in position of great re-
sponsibility. They are within the ranks of a party which
many of their race, not without foundation, have cause to

of the Democratic party, they are on the inside and in
position to demand just and fair treatment for the race. If
for a few paltry offices they allow their lips to be sealed and
their tongues silent in protest against injustice and wrong,
they will prove worse than faithless.
    But these men have already shown their courage and
loyalty by burning all bridges between them and the parties
that had proven faithless. They have won the confidence
and respect of the men who will be chiefly responsible for
the policies of the incoming administration. Delicate and
difficult though their position be, we believe they possess
both the tact and courage to perform their patriotic duty
with a due sense of loyalty to the race.

impediments are concerned. We leave our ports of entry
open to receive the flood of immigrants from Europe, be-
cause our theory is, that our capacious maw, through the
medium of the public school, will, within a generation, be
able to digest them all and send them forth useful and
patriotic Americans.
