THE N. A. A. C. P.
Will Put on Several Special Features
in the Near Future.
At the Forum tomorrow afternoon,
March 26, they will have an address
by Prof. David S. Swenson, from the
Department of Philosophy, U. of M.,
who will take for his subject, "The
Value of Personality." He is a very
pleasant speaker and all should en
deavor to hear him. Four o'clock to
morrow, at Pilgnm-on-the-Hill.
The Conference Dinner, which is to
be held on Monday evening, April 10,
at Masonic hall, 588 Rondo street,
is creating a great deal of interest.
There are only 100 tickets to be sold,
as they cannot accommodate a larger
number so those who desire to take
advantage of them would do well to
procure them at once, as none will be
sold when they are gone. Several
persons from Duluth have sent in for
reservations. This is to be a confer
ence dinner of Twin City people. The
tickets are only 75 cents and may be
purchased of Mrs. Birdie High, 674
St. Anthony, who 'has them for sale.
Get them before they are aH gone.
The dinner will be at 6 o'clock.
The last but by no means the least
will be the lecture of C. V. Roman,
A.M., M.D., LL.D., who has the envi
able distinction of being the only phi
losopher we have produced. He will
speak at the PEOPLE'S CHURCH,
and will take for his subject, "Back to
Law." We will have more to say of
him as the time grows nearer. He is
the author of "American Civilization
and the Negro." Of fETs work the
"Dr. C. V. Roman has given us his
Civilization and the Negro/
the most comprehensive work on that
subject written by a colored man.
Both his scholastic and medical ex
perience have stood him in good stead

MASKED MEN WHIP COLORED
Beggs, Okla., March 23.A colored
prisoner, Charlie Smith, who had been
placed on a street corner with a ball
and chain shackled to him, for refusal
to work on the city streets, was kid
in broad daylight by five
masked men, taken into the country a
few miles and whipped. He was then
returned to the same corner.
The entire affair was carried out
without the officer in charge of the
city prisoners missing Smith and the
prisoner refused to discuss the affair
when he returned. He pleaded guilty
to vagrancy, paid his fine and left
town the morning following.
