Thirteen Negroc* On Trial. State Clos 
es Its Case After Hearing Only 26 
Witnesses Who Failed To Prove 
Conspiracy. Trials Of Nearly One 
Hundred Fifty Whites To Follow. 



THe trial of the thirteen 

iln> jiiiirci-.-r of Detective SeTgoant Cup 
podgW, ui Eul St. l-ouie, oo the night 
of July 1," began Monde; morning- et 
Belleville, 111., before Circuit Judge 
George. Crow. Conspiracy whs ■ etrong 
point liv which the state felt eon*, dent 
of convicting the men. 
Judge Crow admitted flvidnnca of 

eonn|iiraj!v in the cu«.in a ruling, given 

ju*t before court adjourned at 5 p.m. 
Wednesday, which would tend to ahow 
that euch n conspiracy had been or- 
ganised. He offered the opinion that 
if auch a conspiracy did rrixi every 
person taking part in any of the event* 
leading to the murder of Coppedg* and 
Wodley wa* equally guilty of the 
erime. "The net ui any person ia. I 
conspiracy la the act of ■11," ruled 
Judge Crow. 

The elate only called one nor* wit- 
nee* an tbia point after the ruling Bad 
failed to prove ita contention. 

Judge Crow alao rofuaed to permit 
ii gnn>, brought Into the ciurt. to be 
aaad a* evidence, an then «u a* proof 
UtU the puns belonged to any of the 
defendant*. 

The court alao ruled aaaiaat the da- 
feadanta, who attempted to introduce 
evidence to prove that white- new gath- 
ered at tk* eity hall May M and da 
cided lo "ma the Negro** out of Beat 
St Lewie, 



rf. wee 



July I. 

Much evidence *u introduced to 
prove that Negroes were Been march- 
ing around with guhn am-aaaafr pram to 
the killing. Dr. Leroy N. Bnndy, the 
fourteenth, and abaent one of the in 
dieted me*. " as epoken of by nearly 
all of the etate'a witneeeee. He waa 
referred to a» the "leader," and tea- 
timony km given thai men were aeen 



meeting at hi« hump' daily before the 
Hot and were aeen carrying gun«. 

Of the thirteen men on trial, only 
ihreiv—Foator, Roberts and Pecpl 
have lif.-n named by any of the state'* 
witneaaes an partlcipunta in the killing 
Inly 1. 

The atatc brought its eaae to an 
expected clone Thursday afternoon. 
after bearing but 2D of the nearly Soft 
witneatee, aaummoncd. 

No evidence vm given showing [hat 
nny Negroes were seen at 10th and 
boud, the acme of tbe'trouble. The 
nearest place mentioned DM 15th St.. 
which ia Sve block* away, ll seem* 
to be the coneensui of opinion of the 
epeeta tore that the slate 1 * cane ia very 



trial will probably be flniahed 
by the end of thin week- 
la the early netting of the eaae, it 
waa aiated that the statu would prove 
that tha Negroes atarted the riot and 
by eo doing would clear the nearly one 
hundred anil fifty white* who' have 
bfin indicted by tho Grand Jury on ac 
eount of the riot July 2. But owing to 
kneaa of the atata'a case in the 
tHal of the Negro**, it it now believed 
that ail ef the white* will be con- 
victed a* charge,!. It ia undented 
that the trial of tha Indiated white*.

"Yam realite that in the last two 
years everything has gone up ia tbs 
Way of food and clothing ami there 
has also been an advance in the price 
of barber supplies. 

"This ia the opportune time for or- 
ganitatiun; Barbers' Local So. 102 has 
last meted me to get the Colored bar- 
bers into our organization, and when 
once a member you have the same 
right* and privilege* as the white bar-

gua two weeha ago that the Negroes 
■roold boyeott a moving picture '!":.■ n

clove foe the lack of patronage. 

Rev. B. 0. Shaw, pastor' of Metro-

effort* to have the Theater closed, be 
cause he aaid it was too close to his

DARKER RACES IGNORED. 

As much comment as there has been on the different problems 
created by the present world war, strange it is that there has been 
little, if any thought ai to how the general out come is going to 
effect the various races in their relation one to. the other. The idea 
advanced by the Caucasians, that the white race is and always 
will be supreme, seems to prevail over any other that might at- 

rmpt to arise. 
' A little thought on the situation, however might cause some 
/doubts as to whether this supremacy can be maintained regardless 
of the length of the conflict and in spite of the tremendous sacrifi- 
ces beiug made by all of the nations involved. Up-to-date more 
than 10.000,000 white men have been sacrificed on the field of bat- 
tle, and in addition, thousands have suffered and died, "because of 
their proximity to the conflict and through the sinking of ships, 
although there have been men of other races participating j n the 
war, yet so strong is the inclination of the larger nations to keep 
the other races out of it, that their casualties have been infinitisi- 
mal compared to the white race. 

This tendency to exclude the other races, is noticeable not only 
in our own country where they are Blow in calling the drafted Ne- 
groes to the colors, but it is also noticable in the attitude of France 
and England. A few months ago, Japan offered to send 200,000 
men to France to assist the allies on that front, but up to date we 
notice that Japan has confined her activities to the far east, yet 
France is crying for men. More than that number of Russians have 
been transported thither, since the Japanese offer was made and, 
every wind that blows to America bears the cry of "more-jne_n". 
If this war is to continue for a very much longer timejt .the pres- 
ent rate of loss and suffering; then it is inevitable that the white 
race that is making these unprecedented sacrifices must "as a whole 
become weaker in its relation to the other races than it was previ- 
ous to the- conflict. Japan already has grown fat through her 
commercial activities in Asia; China shows signs of awakening; all 
over the world the darker races are beginning to realize that they 
too are men and are forming in their hearts a strong desire to fill 
a man's place and exert a man's right in the world's affairs. 

Theytell us the war must continue until Germany is crushed. 
The strength of the Germans seems to be like. a mill that is stead- 
ily grinding. The allies are feeding their man-power daily into 
This mill, so the question that the allies with their prejudice 
should ask themselves is, how long will their man-power last? 

THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR THE ADVANCENENT 
OF COLORED PEOPLE 

70 Fifth Avenue. New York. N. 
Ladim* and- Gintlemtn: 

The St. Louis Branch N. A. A. C. P. respectfully suggests, and 
urges, that your headquarters devises some concerted action by all 
■ranches of the Association to the end of correcting the unfair at- 
titude of the national government of the United States toward the 
drafted colored men and the prospective colored officers of .the Na- 
tional Army. 

The air of indecision assuoaed by the war department in the 
matter of mobilizing colored troops and the postponement in isau- 
iag commissions to colored officers who have undergone prescribed 
training, while it will fail in its evident purpose to belittle colored 
citizemhip. is nevertehiess a widely .resented insult. 

This hesitancy on the part of the National Administration 
clearly shows either gross incompetency, which is improbable, or 
eondemnable. gratuitous insult to colored citizenry, which ia in ac- 
cord with so mach that has distinguished, and inspired contempt 
for. this pressntadministration. 

We believe that citizens who assume the estate of soldiers to 
preserve this nation through the perils of war should be immune 
from the insolences of those to whom the lottery of politics has 
given, more or leu temporary, authority; and we urge that such 
axiom be forcefully impressed upon the derelict officials at Wash- 
ington as a plainly needed ethical instruction. 

. . Yours Fraternally.

New Pythian Lodge Being Organized 

Like ail the threat citizenship of St. Louie, we were electrified 
by the mammoth conclave held by the Knights of Pythias 
and Auxiliary in our city last month. One could not witness 
the splendid exercises or read of the wonderful accompliahmcnntt} 
ef this great institution without being impressed with the tremen- 
dous achievementa this army of men and women are accomplish- 
ing for the race. It has impressed us as one of the greatest 
agencies for good which ia being forstered by our people. 

We have taken muchjtJme to study the business methods of 
this ordor and find it has a substantial Beneficiary Department, 
founded upon a safe and sane insurance rats as recommended and 
approved by the National Fraternal" Congress, and the Insurance 
Department of Missouri, which is. doing much to relieve the dis- 
tress of the worthy dependents of Pythiana who have fallen in 
the Ranks. ■ - 

We the undersigned with many others have decided to or- 
ganize a Lodge and thus assist, and enjoy the privileges of the 
many thousands who are now laboring under the banner ef Friend- 
ship, Charity, and Benevolence. A special Dispensation has been ' 
granted by Grand Chancellor Lloyd underwbkh we can secure 
membership at the low foe ef $4.50.

Bible means application and toll, bat 
the Master thought It worth all thla. 
and the servant la not above bis Lord. 

In John 19:18 we find him 
In tha Midst of the Smntt*— Our Sub-

hla aalutatlon, "Peace be onto yon, 1

Hebrews 2:12 read*. "I wttl declare

He had In mind the ajwclllr merclee 
of a given time; perhaps n was one 
of Ihe oppresslona of the l'lilllsllnea 
from which they had been delivered. 

(2) Fdrglveneiu of Sin (vv. 2, 5). 
■Thou hast forgiven tbe .Iniquity — 

covered sll their Bin." Ood>. restora- 
tion was the proof that he hud par- 
doned. Great Indeed wn« Ihe sin of 
Jiicob. but God'a forglvenes* n us great- 
er. He la peculiarly a God of uercy. 
lluving forgiven the Bins his iinner ia 
tuken away. He stayed hla hand from 
the judgment which would buve Justly 
fallen, to show hii mercy. 

II, Prayer for Restoration From 
Backsliding (vv. 4-TL 

He knew how worthless the outward 
blessing* of the Lord would be nnleat 
ihe people Inwardly turned to the 
Lord. He, therefore, besought the 
Lord to give (hem the a^reater blessing, 
that of a change of heart Without the 
change of heart forgtvencsa would be 
futile. A change of heart can only be 
by (iod's help. 

Ul Tbnt God would turn Ihe hearts 
of hla people toward himself (v. 4). ■ 

Knowing the people's utter helpless- 
ness to turn to pod, be cried out to 
God to save Ihem by turning them to 
himself. He knew that God's anger 
could not turn from Ihe people ■■ long 
aa they were Impenitent 

(2) That God would take away tbo 
very remembrance of their stos (vv. 
B-T). 

(a) Tbe ending of hi* soger (v. B). 
The desire seems to be that be would 
wipe out tin- very marks of his dla- 

easurn by not looser allowing pun- 
ent at* a* anetaaVastt to than. 

(0) The return to th* people'* Joy 
(v. «). 

Their Joy could only be realised 
through n revival from Oe*L * Tha 
Psalmist now becomes more bold la Ma 
request*. 

(c)Sball show them mercy (v. 7). 

"Make It visible." la hi* cry. Gad* 
Judgment was most real. Hla dedre Is 
that hi* mercy would be jo*t aa real. 

III. Exultant Anticipation (w, 8-13). 

Having spoken the aentlment Of the 
repentant people, tbe poet exx*esae» 
confidence of fbe Lord'* response. So 
faithful I* God that IboM wbo uln- 
eerely pray (o him can go forward 
with the assurance of pebtJona granted. 

(1) "He will speak peace" (V. 8).- 
He knew that a geotle uxurwer weald 

come, but Its i continuance would de- 
pend upon th" fidelity of the people. 
Taming to folly would provoke again 
hla wrath.. 

(2) Will bring hi* salvation near 
(v. 0). 

Only aa bis salvation waa nearronld 
glory be In the land- 
's} Devise a way by which "Mercy 
•nd truth," '"nfgh teooaneaa and peace," 
may be united (vv. 10. 11). 

He did not soggeat a way. He may 
not have known It. Faith bow see* 
the way In Christ. In Htm aach a 
union haa been bleaaedly effected., 
a (4) The lend shall become fruitful 
(v. UL 

When sin la removed, temporal pro*- 
j..-1-i :.i- ahall follow. Earth'* baneo- 
nes* la doe to aln. s When the rva* Is 
removed frultfulgeaa ahall follow. 

(,')) BlghteouBoesa ahall be the 
guide of bla people (v. 13). 

In that golden, glad age Ood'* right- 
eous ways will leave a track la which 
hla own may walk with security.

to believe It K« sodden and unexpect- 
ed was their deliverance that It
