THE times demand that the leaders of the American Negro counsel together as to the best course of action present and future. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People hereby calls a National Conference to meet in the City of Washington May 17 to 19, 1917. Not only our own branches throughout the land, but organizations of all kinds are asked to send delegates to take counsel with us and to see the award of the Spingarn medal for distinguished achievement during 1916. A NEW WORD. WE need a new work in our vocabulary to express that which we formerly expressed by the word "democratic." That word formerly expressed "respect for the rights of the common people." It meant sympathy and consideration and justice. Today the work - both by derivations an actual experience - means the "authority of the people" and it means frequently and ignorant and unjust authority. To be democratic means merely servile conformity to the will of the majority, even when it is ignorant or unjust, or it means arrogant and intolerant exercise of the political power of the majority. We need, therefore, a new word to express that idea of sympathy and consideration for the people which is neither servile or arrogant. One of our great thinkers, discussing this need, makes these observations as to the type of man which in former times we would have called "democratic" and the new work which we should use to describe him: "It seems evident that our ethical education must be carried on further than it has been in the past. The individual conscience must be strengthened and rendered more independent and at the same time it must have more imaginative sympathy so as to realize that public righteousness can only be attained by union with other wills and consciences that are in many ways diverse . . . . "When one comes to try to indicate a moral attitude which involves the union of a good many qualities which are not usually found together, one has to fall back on a person in whom they were actually united. 'Lincoln-like' comes nearer expressing what we have in mind. It is no blind following of the will of the majority but it does have a confidence that when a just and reasonable course of conduct is discovered and when time is given for its presentation in the right way the majority of men will approve of it . . . . "That was Lincoln's attitude when in the Douglass controversy he deliberately shocked the majority of the moment, knowing, also, that what he was doing was 'good politics.' . . . . "The word 'democratic' is liable to misconception when used for ideal ends. What I should like to use would be the word 'socialistic,' if it were not preempted by the Socialists. The awareness on the part of the individual of his real relations to society as a whole, and his free acceptance of all the responsibilities involved in those relations would make rather a different kind of man." The phrase "Lincoln-like," suggested by this writer, expresses the thought I wish to express-"independence," couples with "imaginative sympathy for others." That is the thought the word "democratic" used to express but now, unfortunately, does not. GEORGE G. BRADFORD
