Atlanta Constitution sits on Mr. Wash
13ufc here's the editorial jL'roni
the Atla ta Constitution under
tho heading "Property as the
Negro's Cureall." It remains
to be seen if Dr. Washington
has struck a blow at the South-
ern Negroes' commercial chan-
ces. "For some time (no one knew
it) it has seemed to us that
Booker Washington u n duly
magnifies and accentuates the
importance of material successs
and thrift as the solution of
what the Negro regards as his
race problem. It is probably
true that tho Negro being so
rudiiuental in his mental and
moral make-up is essentially a
creature of the objective and
can only be strongly appealed to
by such an object lesson but
the prosperity that usually re-
sults from hard work intelligent-
ly prosecuted economy self-
denial and other thrifty virtues
denial and the other thrifty vir
tues can never prove the open
sesame to forbidden tilings in
race lelationsbips and the presi-
dent of Tusk ogee by scarcely
covert inference is always ap-
pealing to this false hope dor-
mant in the breast of his race.
Jf this is denied it cannot be de
nied that the whole tendency of
Ins oft-iterated counsel is to
make the Negro a very modern
maferialistSj with what that
morally implies. ttruadax.
