BURST OF BLOOM
BIG ST. PAUL ESTABLISHMENT
HOLDS SPRING OPENING.
Beautiful Windows and Gorgeous Dis
plays Within Tempt the
One was reminded very strongly at
Mannheimer's today of the great shops
of Paris and Berlin and London
Shops that play a most important part
in the educative scheme of foreign
travel. A great shop or store, if it
be modeled upon the broader lines of
exhibition, is more informing than any
thing else, unless it be a great museum,
that a city can possess.
The note of individuality, which so
many American stores strive for and so
many fail to achieve, is the dominant
one at Mannheimer's. This quality of
ingratiation challenges analysis, and as
women are seldom analysts.^ most of
them will never know why it is thfy
always return to Mannheimer's.
Just now there is invitation in the
very windows, which lie in wait for
the" feminine eye, and lead even the
most obtuse as humble captives within.
This individual note is expressed in so
many ways. There is everywhere a
radiant sympathy with the season, the
pleasant Bprmg 'weather putting the
great numbers of visitors into an ap
preciative mood. Then there is the
quality of impeccable tastea quality
that is expressed at Mannheimer's by
the selective way in which the great
establishment absorbs the products of
the world. It may be a Paris hat or an
English costume, but the quality of
selection has made it finally a Mann
heimer hat and a Mannheimer costume.
The window display is itself worth
a trip to see. It is, you may
say, the prolog' to the opera, for
it turns out the moral of itthe well
dressed womancomplete and beauti
ful. And it is most emphatically the
woman of the spring of 1906 that is
found here, the woman in soft grays,
chastened lavenders, atmospheric blues,
the painter's pinks and nature's own
elusive greensin short, the woman
who elects to obey fashion in her
happiest mood and wear the gfntler
The decorator has been careful to
point out to the passerby the fact that
Easter is at hand. One of his window
designs is an oval of monster propor
tions, set in a cloud of Japanese wis
teria and with tiny-winged creatures
of springtime perched upon its edge.
The symbols rub shoulders, for, out of
the egg a rabbit gazes and a great sheaf
of Easter lilies point one's thoughts
altarward. There are other flowery
symbols of the spring and Easter plum
age in plenty, with a chic lady in a hat
and a ruff that are twin sisters of co
quetry above a gown of demerest gray.
The costumes in the windows only
serve to stimulate one*s curiosity con
cerning the coat and suit department
on the second floor. Here the display is
truly -satisfying, distinguished above
other spring's displays by the peculiar
harmony that exists between the ten
dency of fashion to dress her devotees
in light colors, and the spring sunshine
that streams through the great ex
panse of window. The smart white coats
with their little black collars, and the
touch of black on so many of the deli
cately tinted costumes, indicates how
strongly this modifying note is to be
favored. By its means all the pale cos
tumes are made becoming to every face
Here and there the eye is held by the
npw tussa silk coats, the lovely white
lingerie gowns, the j?lint and sheen of
the new radium taffetas, and the soft
appeal of the chiffon voiles. The sun,
shines thru the purple fleur de lis and
the perfume of American Beauties min
gles as one leaves the fascinating place
with the vision of a fabulous lace cos
tume. On the floor above there is the
needle art section, where one finds,
among so many other novelties, the new
shadow work, whioh is to prevail on
shirt waists and on the finer table

echoes in color tint, and general chic
ness of style the suits, with here and
there a special appeal in .the shape of a

Secretary Taft Encourages Col
ored Men in Address at
Tuskegee, Ala., April 5.Owing to
the delay in the Ogden special train,
the beginning of the exercises in con
nection with the celebration of the
twenty-fifth anniversary of the Tuske
gee normal and industrial institute waB
delayed until last night. Among the
prominent men who attended and spoke
were Secretary of War William H. Taft,
Eobert C. Ogden, president of the board
of trustees Charles W. Eliot, president
of Harvard university Dr. Lyman W.
Abbott and Oswald Garrison Villard,
editor of the New York Evening Post.
The party was greeted by 1,500 students
and alumni and by members of the
faculty and board of trustees.
Booker T. Washington delivered an
address of welcome. Mr. Ogden deliv
ered a strong addres on the significance
of the celebration.
President Eliot of Harvard spoke on
"What Uplifts a Race aiid What Holds
Secretary Taft spoke in part as fol
"The white men who can do the
most good for the negro, who can aid
him in his toilsome march to better
material and intellectual conditions are
the southern white men who are his
neighbors. It is one of the encourag
ing signs of the times that there is
growing up in the south a body of lead
ing white men who feel that the future
of the negro race affects the future
of the south and that both self-inter
est and humanity require them to lend
all the aid they can to this people in
the throes of a burdensome effort.
'But,' say the pessimists, 'what of
the political future of the negro?' And
this brings me to the consideration of
the third great war amendmentthe
fifteenthwhich forbade that any state
should deprive the negro of his vote
on account of his color or previous con
dition of servitude. When we regard
the history of the forty years thru
which the negro of this country has been
obliged to struggle, the progress which
I have already alluded to, material and
educational, is wonderful.
"Declarations of equality ancLpopu
lar rights and universal suffrage offer
buta feather's weight against the in
evitable impulse of human nature. It
was impossible that with the elements
I have stated there should not have
been disturbance and fraud and op
pression. The negro'8 vote, after a
long struggle, the history of which I
shall not recall, was made to count for
When a class of persons is so ignor
ant and so subject to oppression and
misleading that they are merely politi
cal children, not having the mental
status of manhood, then it can^Jhardly
be said that their voice in the govern
ment secures any benefit to them. Prop
erty and educational qualifications are
adopted in order to exclude those
whose lack of knowledge and lack of
vitality make doubtful their capacity
to decide with safety to themselves and
the country what their own interests
are. Therefore, it seems to me that a
policy of the southern people in adopt
ing laws which exclude impartially both
the black and white ignorant and irre
sponsible, could not be criticised.
**It is said, and with what truth I
do not now discuss, these laws are
intended to be
bv means of
tion and other i$ate %fl icers so as to
exclude the c,0|gped,-yqters with vigor
under their provisions, and to allow the
white voters who ought also to be ex
cluded^ to enjoy the franchise. Assum
ing this to be true, still the situation
is by no means a hopeless one for the
negro and the political power that he
may in the future exercise.
"In the first place, if he continues
to increase in intelligence by the ac
ceptance of the educational opportuni
ties which are being offered him under
the influence of Mr. Washington, in
great institutions-jlike this, and if in
dustrially he becomes a power and this
gradually increases the number of his
race who are eligible to vote in ac
cordance with law, such a yadual ac
quisition of political power will secure
more real political power and ability
to help the negroes in their develop
ment than when theii" right of suffrage
was unrestricted.. I cannot put myself
among those pessimists who regard the
settlement of the political question in
the south as beyond hope."
