He is known throughout the United
States and is well liked by the lead
ing men of all creeds and political par
ties because of his real worth among
the people of his race along lines
which. If followed, certainly stand for
the moral and industrial uplift of the
American negro. He believes in edu
cation for the negro In the United
States, but qualifies this belief with
the suggestion that the education
must be practical and in such way
that It will prepare the negro for a
life of usefulness in the community in
which he lives. There are certain
people in various parts of the country
who differ with the distinguished col
ored man, in this respect, but their
number, never large, is constantly de
creasing. Booker Washington would eliminate
every particle of idleness among the
members of his race, by inculcating
energy, morality and industrious hab
its through the medium of industrial
schools and colleges. Albeit he is not
encouraging the colored people to en
ter politics. He has seen enough of
this to know that there is very little
in It for the white man and nothing
for the negro. To be industrious,
honest and attentive to business,
whatever that business is, seems to
be the great vital text upon which
the career of Washington centers,
and it is a most worthy one. It took
Washington a long time to prove to
the people the white people of the
south that he is sincere, but be suc
ceeded In doing so and now he has
the satisfaction of knowing that
throughout the nation, institutes like
his beloved Tuskegee, are being es

results for good are flowing there

A minister, possessing an irrepress

merely how to "tickle the world" to

wanted. These are his illustrations:

on one occasion, and she edged over
toward him to be tickled some more.

of saying that success with the pub

a "hard old world."

If we were called upon to name the
two worst enemies of the negro in
America we would not hestltate to an
swer, "whisky and pistols." " The bane
of the race is the reckless, irresponsi
ble young negro who fears neither
God nor man, and whose degradation
can be traced directly to the two evils,
whisky drinking and pistol . "toting."
When an ignorant youth fills up on
mean whisky and has a gun in his hip
pocket he at once becomes a menace
to the public peace. While others than
negroes are equally as guilty of the
evils mentioned, we are concerned Just
now in helping to lift our own burden.

A THIRTY-TWO PER CENT IN
CREASE IN THE PAST TEN
That Canada has come rapidly to
the front In the past ten years is am
ply shown in the results of the census
recently made public. The population
of the Dominion Is now placed at
7,081,869, which with outlying points
to be heard from, may bring it up to
7 millions as compared with 5,371,
815 in 1301. Though these figures are
large, they do not present a total as
large as was expected but they do
show a greater increasa of percentage
in population for the decade than any
similar increase in the United States.
The highest percentage ever reached
by the Republic was 24; the per
centage of increase in .Canada for the
decade is 32. Thus it will be seen
that the provinces west of the lakes,
with the great broad fertile acres
ready for the sowing and immediate
reaping of grain and the Valleys of
British Columbia capable of producing
fruit with which to supply. Its neigh
boring provinces east of the moun
tains, have attracted numbers, which
has exceeded the most optimistic of
the expectations of ten years ago.
- Upon the prairies of the ten years
ago there was but a spare scattering
of people; but today, no matter in
which way you go, take any direction,
and you find homes and farms and
good ones too, occupied by the very
best class of people in good sized set
tlements with plenty of room for five
or six times as many more. The pop
ulation of Alberta is set down at 372,
919, as compared with 73,022 in 1901;
Saskatchewan 453,508 as compared
with 91,270 in 1901; Manitoba's 454,
691 compares well with its 255,211 in
1901; and so does that of British Co
lumbia 362,768 as against 178,657 in
1901; but in a territory as large as
this a population of 1,643,000 is little
more than discernible in point of num
bers. The work through it has been
great. Look at the towns that have
been built up; its cities, Winnipeg
with 135,000; Vancouver with upwards
of 100,000; Calgary with 43,000; Ed
monton, Regina, Saskatoon; Leth
bridge; Medicine Hat, Moose jaw.,
splendid cities none better any
where; well maintained and equipped.
These have come with existence and
been built as they have been built by
reason of the splendid agricultural
country by which they are surround
ed. The population is scarcely dis
cernible. A population ten or twelve
times that shown by the recent
census could be easily maintained in
even greater wealth than that which
maintains the present numbers. There
is certainly- a wonderful future for
Western Canada and that which goes
to the development of the west will
enrich the last. This is the growing
time in Canada and what has been
done in the past ten years is but a
beginning. The next decade will
show a far greater advancement. In
the meantime Canada is bidding wel
come the progressive and industrious
citizen. The" invitation is a standing
one.' At the forthcoming land exposi-

BISHOP E. E. H0SS TALKS
"NOT OPPOSING THE INTER
CHURCH COLLEGE, BUT PRE
FER WORK WITHIN OUR
CHURCH," SAYS THE BISHOP.
Nashville, Tenn. "No, we are not
opposing the Interchurch college, we
are simply taking the position that all
the work which is done by our church
for the colored teachers and preachers
should be done through the agencies
of the church and not through any in
dependent or alien. instrumentality."
This is the statement made by Bish
op E. E. Hobs in answer to a question
as to whether or not the Methodist
Episcopal church. South, is opposing
the American Interchurch college in
its relation to social ; and religious
training among the colored people.
A called meeting of the executive
board of education of the Methodist
Episcopal church. South, of which
Bishop Hoss is a member, was held
yesterday afternoon at the office of
Dr. Percy Maddln, also a member, and
resolutions were adopted indorsing
Paine college in Augusta, Ga., and the
administration of the present officials
was strongly commended.
A communication from the board of
missions was read in reference to the
enlargement of the facilities for train
ing colored preachers in Paine col
lege and such additional facilities are
thoroughly approved by the executive
Similar action was taken by a spe
cial committee appointed for the pur
pose of determining the policy of the
church in regard to the training of ne
gro teachers and preachers. This spe
cial committee met yesterday also, the
meeting being held at the publishing
house and Paine college was indorsed
This committee consisted of Bishop
J. H. McCoy, Dr. J. D. Hammond, Sen
ator John H. cherard. Dr. John M
Moore and Mrs. MacDonald. Sitting
with the oommittee by special invita
tion yesterday were Dr. E. B. Chappell
of the Sunday school board and Mr
Stonewall Anderson, secretary of the
board of education.
One of the most interesting features
of the meeting was an account given
by Senator Sherard of a visit to Mound
Bayou, Miss., where the entire popu
atlon is colored. The visit of Sena
tor Sherard was greatly appreciated
and a paper expressing this apprecia-
tion embodied the statement that
from the white ministers of the south
era Methodist church.
It was the sense of the committee
expressed In a resolution offered by
Doctor Moore, that the Methodist Epls-
opal church, South, should operate
through the Colored Methodist Episco
pal church directly in all Its efforts
toward social and religious trainin
of the negro, and in all other lines of
work, but that the advantages offered
by the church should also be open to
the people of other colored churches,
and especially to the Colored Method
1st churches. This resolution was
The committee also will recommend
that the trustees of Paine college In1
Augusta, Ga., be respectfully asked to
give consideration to the advisabitty
of enlarging the department for the
training of preachers at Paine college
and of establishing a correspondence
school for colored preachers in the
The following resolutions' were
"In view of the need of enlarging
the. work of Paine college in several
directions, it is recommended that we
request the board of education to con
sider the matter of authorizing the
president of Paine college to set about
raising immediately an endowment for
the college. Assured of raising funds
for current expenses. It was also rec
ommended that the board of missions
give its hearty indorsement and pledge
Its support to such a movement
"Resolved, That the secretaries of
the home department take steps look
ing to the holding of Sunday school
institutes among the colored people,
and that as a means to this end, the
services of Doctor Chappell and his as
sistants be secured in the enlistment
of the general Sunday school board
and of the conference Sunday school
boards In this work."
The question of - employing young
women, and others, in training Sunday
school teachers in the cities was dis
cussed, and the following resolutions
"Resolved, Thai it is the sense of
this committee that specially equipped
and well-trained persons be employed
by the home department of the board
of missions to teach, and train groups
of colored Methodist Sunday school
teachers In our cities; and,
"Resolved, That this committee call
attention to those pastors and city
mission boards that employ deacon
esses and other trained workers to the
opportunity which they have In them
to help in the development of the re
ligious and moral life of the negroes,
and to arrange for such use of them

The following resolution' was also
"Resolved, That it is the sense of this
committee that our home secretaries
should use all legitimate 'means to
aiouse public sentiment among the
white people in the communities where
there is a large colored population in
favor of proper housing and sanitation
among the negroes, and that efforts
should be made to enlist employers of
negroes in towns, cities and country in
reasonable plans for the social better
ment of the negroes in their employ.
The committee hereby expresses its
sympathy with sane and well matured
negroes who are making efforts to bring
about through their leagues the educa
tional, industrial and moral improve
ment of their people."
After discussing the question of train
ing colored workers the following res
olution was adopted:
"We beieve that Paine college should
be the educational center through
which the Methodist Episcopal church.
South, should at present undertake to
prepare colored men and women for
religious service. We respectfully rec
ommend that the board of education
and the board of missions and the trus
tees of Paine college consider the ad
visability at their next meeting of es
tablishing a training school as a de

training and equipment of young wom
