ceedings were regular and lawful and
conformed with the xrniform custom of
the court since its establishment, to wit,
for more than ten years- Attornty Mc
Ghee then moved that the defendant be
discharged because the return did not
show that tbe prisoner was duly ar
rainged for violating any law or ordin

the motion by ihe City Attorney and
Attorney McGhee the court discharged
the prisoner from custody. This is tbe
first time the proceedings of the Muni

PILGRIM BAPTIST CHURCH.
How wonderful is the providence of
God, Queen and governess of the uni
verse, working tbe smallest as well as
the greatest event into the mighty web
of our eventlul lives. We can see now
at the close of the year, how that prom
ise has been verified to us. The work
ing together of all things and that what
soever a man soweth that shall he also
reap* We can offer our prayer of thanks
giving most heartily. Elder Sheafe has
been with us just one year Sunday, his
hitherto large congregations seemed
to be larger on the 27th than ever.
There will be special ^services
morning and evening, come and
see what God hath wrought. Last
Sunday evening Rev. P. H. Fuller,
of the First Baptist church preached a
very able and interesting sermon. The
entertainment of the Literary Society

ST. JAMES A. M. E. CHURCH.
Why do we have Colored churches?
It is not because there is a special re
ligion for the diffierent races. It is not
because the Bible directs it. The rea
son is due to the social feelings which
exists between the races Colored and
white persons cannot mingle in the par
lor nor in the church on terms of social
frendliness and equality if they mingle
one or the other must accept a position
as the inferior, or else both are in con
stant antagonism. For this reason we
have separate churches, so that we can
serve God as we please, and not be
dictated to, and our part marked out by
a class who look down on us with con
tempt. We cannot blame Colored peo
ple for wanting to have their own
churches, butjthey should seek to have
these chuiches equal to those of any
other race. Because a church is a Col
ored church it does not follow that it
should be of a lower order than a white
church. The minister of a Colored
church should be just as able, the music
just as good, and the entire service just
as ordei lv as it would be among any
other people. Colored people will
never be able to stand side by ide with
the people of the land until they learn
this. Thev should seek to keep on get
ting ahead and never be content to
stand still or to go back. All wise pei
sons will help those who try to elevate
the race and will encourag and appreci
ate those who stand wp for progiess and
advancement. St. James church strives
to be up to the best in everything. Its
members and friends all seem to be of
one mind on this point. All good citi
zens take pride in such things whether
they belong or not. The attendance last
Sabbath shows that the services are
growing in popular favor, the congre
gations are constantly becoming larger.
The morning service is already of the
highest order. The evening service is
now to receive special attention. Rev.
Henderson has had as thorough collegi
ate and theological training as the pas
tois ot the other churches of the city
and at suggestion of many has con
cluded to preach the same class of ser
mons that are preached to other congre
gations. Next Sunday night the theme
will be, "'The Creation, as considered in
the light of modern science." Some
people say that as soon as a Colored
preacher begins to take deep subjects
the congregations drop oft, such talk is
an insult to the race. If our preachers
would strive to be higher in their esti
mations of their race and give them as
good sermons as other races have, more
of our intelligent young people would be
found at church. People love good
preaching and will go to hear it, and
would rather hear it from members of
their own race it they can.

the Northern Methodist church. Bish
op Newman headed the delegates to the
Conference on a vibit to the college, and
after all bad been welcomed by Presi
dent Braden, Bishop Newman was in
troduced. He spoke with earnestness,
and was frequently interrupted by ap
plause. After refeiring to the work of
the Church which, he said, "Is the
greatest Protestant denomination in the
world, and has given large promises of
latent capabilities and excited hopes to
be realized in the jears that are to
come." Bishop Newman spoke of the
"Negro Problem" as follows:
"I suppose that it has occurred to you
that we are attempting to solve a prob
lem in this country never before at
tempted at all events, never before
1 put you to the challenge to
point to me a single race in the history
of the world that has been emancipated
by others which amounted to anything.
It is one of the most solemn problems
in history. It seems to me the law of
successful emancipation is that they who
wou be free must fi-bt strike the blow
themselves, must have risen in their
own might against tyranny, against any
form of oppression, whether political or
ecclesiastical or politico-ecclesiastical.
Sucn have succeeded. We, therefore,
under the power of our higher civiliza
tion, propose to solve the question with
a people whose condition has suddenly
and ladi ally been changed, and that by
the power of this Christian civilization
shall rise to manhood that shall be distin
guished for purity, for industry, for m
tehgence and for renown. Tnis is tbe
solemn question this is the deep, un
derlying thought of the statesman of to
day, of th3 philanthropist and of the
Church, and it CHI:IST NIT PAILS TO DO
THIS, THEN CHRISTIANITY IS A FA1LUKE. I
was no fault ol your ancestors that they
were enslaved. It is no ult ot yours
that their descendants were emanci

whether you prove the exception to
what might be called the rule of his-
Bishop Newman then referred to the
past history of the race and said:
"Your problem, to the osberver, con
tains two features. The one is that
those who were immediately emanci
pated so conducted themselves as to
commend their purenebt,, industry, fru
gality, temperance and piety not only to
their own immediate successors, but to
all coming generations, hile their sons
and daughteis have taken advantage of
the privileges accruing to them by the
munificence of the government which

eration is a living emblem to the capa
bility long contained by the African, and
of latent capabilities whicti are yet
destined to unfold th1emselves
tonish the world. For I do not hesitate
to say the branch of your race has a his
tory as conspicuous and as illustrous as
either of the other branches or human
ity. You can rapidly discover the glory
of your past history, and I beLeve it is
in your power to rival the glory of the
past by a history more glorious in the

touched upon the "Negro Problem."
He began by saying "that the greatest
