LETTER OF THANKS.
In Reference to the Death of Mrs.
Mr. Editor:-Allow me space in your
paper to thank the organizations for
their faithful care and benevolence to
wards my aunt, Mrs. Agnes Moody,
who died April 8, at 2:40 P. M., age
65 years, during all the months of her
serious illness.'- Their attention was
beautiful to see, nothing lacked they in
devotion, nor did their charity fail by
the wayside neither did they want for
hope of her recovery until within the
last few days. They were loyal to the
end. She had ample time in all these
months to feel the sincerity of the
friendship her many acquaintances bore
her. Her sisters, who cared for her
day and night unwearingly, join me in
the attempt to thank not only the so
cieties and clubs, pastors, Q. C. S. S.
and Christian Endeavor, Deaconess
and Stewardess, but every one for their
words of cheer and prayers. Her fun
eral which took place April II will ever
be remembered by her relatives. The
many varied and beautiful floral trib
utes, the eulogies of Rev. A. J. Carey,
Quinn Chapel, Rev. Geo. C. Booth,
presiding pastor Rev. Harry Thomp

In each organization' Mrs. Moody
had held a high seat of honor subordin
ate^ and internationally, and each vied
with the other in the neatness and dis
patch of their last rites without any
sign of confusion.
The organizations have lost a sister
but our home and hearts have lost a
greater link than they for there can
never be to us another sister Aggie or
Aunt Aggie. But she left with us good
teachings, bright thoughts, stories of
her travels and struggle for knowledge.
Although sad we hope to chase the
gloom away by bright memories of her
during her health and her enduring
patience in illness and with what calm
ness she asked that the Deaconess and
Christian Endeavor come and be with
her as she was about to cross the river.
Many thanks to her neighbors. Mrs.
Gabriel Knighton Smith draped the
body for burial. Mr. Clifford Johnson,
709 State St., embalmer, .cared for the
body and secured the handsome casket.
I can only say thanks to each and ev
ery one who by word, deed or act
showed their love for my aunt and
consoled and mourned with us. My
heart means more than thanks but I
can't find the words to express it. A
committee from the Hyde Park Young
Girls' L. and S. club awaited the fun
eral at the grave and put their floral
offering under the clay.
God's will be done.

ADDRESS TO THE COUNTRY.
It is evident to the thoughtful among
us th:it we are passing through one ot the
most critical periods of our existence
this countrv. Questions that immediately
concern the lit&ty and well being of one
eighth of the United States and scarcely
to less degree the whole population of the
country are pressing for treatment as
never before. The recorded experience of
mankind teaches that in public matters
the equality of each is the surest guar
antee of the liberty and safety of all the
members of society. If it be true that the
country can not endure 'half free and
half slave it follows as a necessary corol
lary that the manhood of no state can
with safety be divided, in nearly equal
parts into voters and non-voters.
A systematic effort has been inaugur
ated on the part of the South which has
for its object the withdrawal of the fran
chise from the Afro-Americans of that
section and their reduction to a position
of absolute subserviency in all the rela
tions of life. Even college graduates and
men of business and wealth have been
denied the light of franchise. It haa Seen
openlv declared by some of M ffiost
prominent leaders of the South th&t it
was the intention of the framers of the
new constitutions to disfranchise as many
Afro-Americans as possible and leave
every Caucasian in full possession of the
suffrage. The effect has been that not
only has the Afro-American been dis
franchised but als-o that a very large
number of Caucasians-, who previous to
the adoption of these constitutions par
ticipated in elections, have ceased to reg
ister and vote, and thus the very founda
tions of republican institutions have been
We contend for our constitutional
rights on the ground that the right of
suffrage which is the asis of the indi
vidual sovereignty of the American citi
zen, which in turn is the basis of the ag
gregate sovereignty, of the whole body
politic, has been conferred upon its citi
zens by the Federal Government. The
powers of the Federal Government were
not conferred by a single state but by all
of the states, therefore the National Gov
ernment can enforce the provisions of the

President Roosevelt with references to
the fitness for appointment to office, and

and traditions of human rights, and has
given hope and inspiration to a people
struggling heroically beneath the burden
of hate and proscription. We commend
