too weak to guard its citizens,
in their homes, and that the
authorities permit the mobs to
govern, these people are now
fleeing from their homes, in ter-
ror of their lives, hence this
committee requests that you
^J^inmicduitely cause the ai
^Wr^iiid punishment of these
midnight mauradeis and cause
the oflicers to protect our law
abiding citizens.
If however, from any cause or
f i any reason your honour finds
il impossible or impracticable
to give the immediate action,
which the case demands, we ask
that you accord to us the privi-
lege of doing what all men
would do under like condition,
tii.it is : protect ourselves.
In times past, we left our for-
mer places of residence and bus-
iness and located in the section
marked off for colored people ;
since that time we have not
transgressed the line and weare
not going to at this time. Can
this be said of the white citizens
of Miami ?
Now we have concluded to
yield no further to mobs or mob
law without protest.
We draft this statement and
request to your honor in the be-
lief that immediate action will
be taken and the tensity of the
situation be relieved ad to say
further that until such actioii
i> taken, we shall be forced to
protect ourselves, as best we
m ly.
Awaiting in confidence your
immediate action in this verv
grave matter we are respectful-

THE TIGER
is one of the most destructive of animals, and is
a source of much danger to life.
SUNLIGHT SOAP
preserves and lengthens the life of your clothes, but
it is a source of destruction to all dirt and unclean-

in a single night, cannot
be compared to the amount
of destruction wrought by
inferior soap in a single
wash-day. Sunlight Soap
is an absolutely pure Soap,
that saves your clothes,
