"Loveless Love Blues."
Loveless Love Blues is the title
of the latest blues sung by W.
C. Handy, originator of the
blues idea, and better known by
"St. Leuis Blues" and "Memphis
Blues" which ar? known the
world ever. The Q. R S. Com
pany has made a roll of this
number featuring a colored
pianist, James P. Johnson of
New York City. Since January
1st six phonograph companies
have mads phonograph records
of "Loveless Love" as the words
are a novel construction and the
music characteristic of Mr; Han
dy, The chorus of "Loveless
Love" is written in Spanisn tem
po and carries a simple melody
as beautiful as "Silver Threads
Among The Gold." Thesecond
chorus is written in Jazz tempo
and is pronounced by all who
hear it as an innovation in the
song writing game.
Pace and Handy, Music Co
enjoys thi distinclion of being
of being the first to publish a
song with ths laughing trombone
and the first to put' over a song
with Mamie Smith in the records
and the first to lend dignity to
the Blues. This Company is do
ing a pioneer work which in th*
years to come will be pointed to
with pride by members of th?

The Committee Appointed.
We had the pleasure last week
of calling the attention of our
[readers to The Hoy al Theatre, a
I "movie huuse" in this city eon
ducted by whites exclusively for
tne exclusive patronage ox Ne
groes. Th IB Theatre for some
time has been tee topic of dis
cussion among our people be
cause of the little recognition
given those who patronize it, ex
cept to come in great and still
greater numbers to patronize it.
This the Negroes of Columbia
dre tired doing and have really
resolved not to do so much Ung
er. For that reason we had a
tittle Bay last week and suggest
ed that before the leading minis
ters and business men of the city
took any steps to satisfy the dil
satisfied public, that the minis
cers who have the ears of the
people appoint a committee to
wait on the owmer and manager
and lay bare the desires of the I
peoole and if a deaf ear ia given
this committee then take such .
steps as the leading minda think
We gladly say that in keeping
with our suggestion the inter
denominational Ministers Union
has appointed that committee
and the same is at work. We
hoping that this committee will
he able to make a favarable re
port back to the Union next Tues
Just what the demands are
thar, this, committee will make
we do not know but we do know
that with the men of experience
and ability among us to manage
and operate the theatre in everv
branch they certainly ahould be
given positions and that the
theatre should be conducted on a
high order. Nothing lesa than
this should satisfy, nothing leas
than this should be granted.

Another step foward for .Co
lumbia's colored' citizenry is the
formulated plan for a large
Building and Loan Association te
help the masses. From first
hand information, this Organiza
tion is a certainty and is only a
matter of time to properly or
ganize which will be done next
Thursday night, February 24th,
at Zion Baptist Church. The
capital s ock is $50,000 at$50 00
per share. Many have already
subscribed for shares and many '
more will subscribe. This ia as
it should be It is high time
that our people in Columbia should
cooperate and combine their for
ces if we would get the recogni
The indicator would urge every
colored man and woman to sub
scribe to the capital stock of thia
new concern and help to put it
into operation al once and here
after when we need money to
buy a home or pay for what we
have let's go to our own.
