Last Wednesday a curious fight Oc
curred on Minnesota street. A fellow
was thumping his mistress, a white
woman, and a Jew who saw the per

did not relish the idea of a black man
thumping a white woman As soon
as he took a hand in the family spat
the man quit beating the woman and
began to beat the Jew, which he did
in great shape, and when the gallant
Jew was hois du combat, the woman
for whom he had gotten into trouble
went up to him and adminsitered a
number of kicks on his person that na

pose, saying: "You damned sheeny,

On Feb 12th Mrs Elizabeth Banis
ter was taken to St. Luke's Hospital
for treatment for nervous prostration.
She remained there until March 28th
without getting any permanent relief,
when, on that date, her left thigh bone
was accidentally broken and from that
time she began to fail. On April 11th
she was taken from the hospital to her
home with her daughter, Mrs. J. Q.
Adams, where everything was done
that possibly could be done by loving
elatives and friends to alleviate her
sufferings, which were caused by her
complication of troubles, but all to no
avail, and the evening of Wednesday,
April 22nd, at 6:45 she passed away.
She became unconscious Tuesday and
never again recovered, but slept con
tinuously to the end.

Andrew Carnegie Gives the Above
Amount to the Endowment Fund.
New York, "April 23.The trustees
of the Tuskegee Normal and Industrial
institute in Alabama have received
$600,000 towards the endowment fund
from Andrew Carnegie, who attended
the recent meeting in behalf of the
Tuskegee institute, where ex-Presi
dent Grover Cleveland presided. The
trustees will meet soon to take formal
action in accepting the gift, and at the
same time to take measures to still
further increase the endowment. Car
negie's letter conveying the gift reads
New York, April 17, 1903, Wm. H.
Baldwin, Jr., Trustee. My Dear
I have instructed Mr. Franks, my
cashier, to deliver to you, as trustee of
Tuskegee Institute, six hundred thou
sand dollars five per cent United
States Steel company's first mortgage
bonds towards the endowment funds.
I give this amount without reserva
tion except that I require that suitable
provision be made from the gift for
the wants of Booker Washington and
his family during his own or his wife's
life. I wish
That Great and Good Man
to be entirely free from pecuniary cares
that he may be entirely free to devote
himself to his great mission.
To me he seems one of the greatest
of living men because his work is
unique the modern Moses, wh leads
his race and lifts it, through educa
tion, to even better and higher things
than a land overflowing with milk and
honey. History is to tell of two Wash
mgtons, one white, the other black,
both fathers of their people. I am
satisfied thai the serious race problem
of the South is to be solved wisely
only through Mr. Washington's policy
of education, which he seems to have
been specially born, a slave among
slaves, to establish and in his own
day greatly to advance. Glad am I
to be able to assist this good work in
which you and others so zealously la

Grand Opera House next week, is
probably one of the most poweful mel
odramas to be seen in this city this
season. The dialogue is strong, the
story interesting throughout and in
the hands of a capable company and
carefully staged, the production is one
well worth seeing. The play met with
unqualified success on the occasion of
its appearance at that playhouse last
season and a short resume of its story
is probably not out of place at this
time. The plot is woven around the
trials and adventures of Frank Raw
den, who is persecuted by George Dal
ton a false friend, who causes serious
charge to be made against him in or
der to rid him of his presence that he
may the more successfully carry out
a villainous scheme, but Frank Raw
den is aided by Tom Daily, a detective,
who manages to thwart his plans and
in a most sensational manner clears
the good name of the hero. There is
a pulse quickening scene every mo
ment, and while the play is sensa
tional it is always consistent and one
of intense interest. The cast includes
the names of a number of well known
players and it is promised that the
production will be elaborately staged
See what this big

with interest and enthusiasm. We
should not expect to share in the honor
without doing some of the work.
The Newspaper Deadhead.
Why should people ask for free news
papers, asks the Toronto Evening Tel
egram, any more than they look for
free cigars, free umbrellas, free walk
ing sticks, free collars, free cuffs or
free beefsteaks? Every copy of a
newspaper is a product which costs
meney. The tailor, the tobacconist,
the gents' furnisher or the grocer is
not called upon to supply free copies
of the products which they handle.
The people who are aggrieved if they
cannot get a free copy of a newspaper
would not think of struggling for a
place on the free list of a grocery store,
a dry goods store, or butcher's shop.
