The policy of the paper will be strictly strictly democratic, pledging itself to the reform principles inaugurated by President President Cleveland, upon the tariff and financial questions. It will vigorously insist upon national national aid for the education of the ignorant masses of the races, to wipe out if possible, possible, the appalling growth of ignorance ignorance and crime, believing that the education of the masses is the only remedy, and that it is of vital importance importance to the Nation, and tending good government. Believing that it is paramount in its tendencies toward National security, then our large and extravagant pension pension system, we shall urge upon our democratic legislators in Congress to formulate an educational bill looking to that end and that the Secretary of Interior be made Secretary of Interior and Public Instruction, who will supervise supervise the distribution of the National fund among the states and for the interest of our race in those states where separate schools are necessary, that colored teachers be employed exclusively exclusively in those schools. It will insist upon the rights of our people in the South, that mob violence be overthrown and that the law be supreme for punishment of crime of whatever nature, and that our identity with the dominant political party will be more effectual m bringing this about than past political methods. It will condemn in unmeasured terms, the awful and diabolical crimes of outraging and raping defenseless women, without regard to race or color, using every means to preserve the sanctity of the homes and the families. The educational, industrial and moral development of the race, will be the most important feature of the paper, whilst liberal space and encouragement encouragement will be given to literary productions of the race and the religious religious teaching of our christian bodies. The political aspect of the paper being strictly in the interest of negro democracy, we appeal to and expect liberal patronage and generous aid from our white democratic friends, until our publishing department shall meet the requirements of the paper. The paper will be conducted upon strictly business principles, and hon estly and correctly managed in all of its parts. Our general agent, Hon. L. C. Moore of Mississippi, will begin at once to solicit subscriptions, advertisements and finantial aid from our democratic friends Also the local agent, P. H. White, or any other person, duly authorized authorized by the general agent and countersigned by the chairman of the executive committee, to aid the put ting m motion the "Flying wheel of Negro Democracy The paper will be controlled by the executive committee of the Negro National Democratic League. Its first issue will be September 6, 1893, and every Wednesday thereafter. By order of executive committee, H. C. C. Astwood, Chairman, E. L. Dawkins, Secretary.
