At Atlantic City, N. J.
By CHARLES E. STUMP
ATLANTIC CITY, N. J. I have
again applied my little knowledge of
the Knights of Pythias, and believe
me when I tell you it worked like a
charm and I have been able to get
into the supreme lodge and learn a
few things. Have you ever been
there? It is based on brotherly love.
or on friendship or something like
that, but I saw there men united to
kill their brother, and did succeed in
I wonder at times if we really know
the value of an obligation. If we would
I warn a brother of approaching dan-
l ger, or would we rather let him make
a mistake if there is one to be made,
and then air it above other. This
happened upstairs among the big
folks, and us little fellows must not
have anything to say.
You will recall when I wrote my
last letter I was around and about the
city of St Louis attending the Nation
al Negro Business League, and other
places worth while, and -when I got
through with there I then turned my
attention to leaving. It was a great
session of the League, and I am proud
that Dr. Robert R. Moton was made
the president He is getting ready to
put into it some of the Booker T.
Washington pep, and I believe that
the next session to be held in Phila
delphia will be like one of those old
time sessions, and I hope to be there,
and I am going to be there if I can
just get money enough together.
It would be impossible for me to tell
you all the big folks I met while there,
for that is out of the question. I have
just met them, talked with them and
when I was ready to leave for this
part of the world, I received an invita
tion from Dr. Robert R. Moton to join
him in a bed car going East He had
secured a little room in that bed car,
hence there was room enough for me,
for Major Allen Washington and Dr.
Moton. I wish you could have seen
Hon. Berry OTCelly, postmaster at
Nethod, N. C, and one of the wealthi
est men of our race in that section
of the country, and who has used his
wealth in trying to help others, and
Mrs. Wilhelmina Webster, an elocu
tionist and dramatic reader of St
Louis, helping to get me ready for the
bed car. They packed my trunks,
fixed my money in my pocket, and ar
ranged things in good shape, and then
Mr. CKelly went with me to the bed
car in one of those horseless carriages.
Well, we got in, and I regretted to
see Mr. CKelly go, but had to bid him
farewell, and tell him I expected to
meet him again, if not in this world
in the world to come, for I am going to
heaven and I think a man who will
take his money and erect a school
building for the people should have a
place there also. Well, we got to
gether, and the thing started out
about noon, for New York. We talked,
and then I went back in another bed
car and talked to many of our people
there. It was to me a source of pleas
ure, to be able to talk to them. They
were from Arkansas, I enjoyed talk
ing with them. Getting back to the
bed car, I found a note from Dr. Moton
telling me to come on up in the eating
car, but Mrs. A. M. Majone, of Poro
college had caused to be fixed for me,
some .real chicken, and I got on the
'outside of some of that and when I
passed through Indianapolis, Miss
Sayde Mays, of the public school
brought me a few more lines of chick
en and other good things, hence 1
did not put my little feet in the eating
car until Sunday morning, and it was
almost noon then, because there were
so many who had got in ahead of us.
We got there and did clean up. I got
to know Dr. Moton as never before,
and he is a man who is truly interest
ed in his people. He thinks much of
his people. I am proud of him.
I reached Philadelphia, when I got

off and went to the city where I re
mained over night, but the next day
found me moving another way. Bright
and early I got up and beat it for At
lantic City and believe me they have
some people there who know how to
charge without rendering the service.
The first thing to attract my attention
was that is was decreed that Joseph
L. Jones, a high Pythian, at the head
of the Calanthe must die, because he
did not agree with Smith W. Green,
the supreme chancellor. When I asked
one or two men about it, they said
that it was true, and that they could
not do anything. Dr. C. M. Wade, said
that it was an order from the
administration, and he did not want to
dig his own grave, hence he could not
do anything for General Jones. I got
the same thing from Dr. Mason, then
from others, whose names I do not re
call "It was the administartion against
Jones" and I do not know whether or
not the Supreme Chancellor has de
creed what those who did not vote
against Jones should do but seem to be
understood. The result was the same.
That was all you could hear on the
street and we are going to get him.
Roscoe Conklin Simmons, said "I re
gret it very much, but Joe has dug
his grave by disagreeing with the
Supreme Chancellor, and he must be
buried in it" I have been told that
there were other reasons. The time
came, the administration beat General
Jones by six votes, and then Dr.
Stoney from Georgia, who was not
present when the votes were taken
lost his position, because they declared
that he went out to duck the vote. I
don't know what you mean by that,
but I do know that he was defeated.
I had the pleasure of meeting one of
the best all around speakers in the
Supreme Lodge, Hon. Chas. N. Cott
rill, "Real Estate Collections No
tary Public, Toledo, Ohio." He is .a
man every inch a man. I shall never
forget him and his kindness. He was
jjst a kind man, and he made some
We shall watch the future. I wish
you could have seen that parade. The
people all declare that it was the
finest parade ever held in Atlantic
City. They were there from every
where, and those folks did put on some
stunt, believe me. General Robert R.
Jackson covered himself with glory.
He was not the same Jackson he used
to be. He is getting away out of my
reach. Such is life.
I said a few minutes ago that the
people know how to charge and they
do. I paid one dollar and fifty cents
for sleeping, and my 1ed mate was
Rev. Henry Allen Boyd, and got only
one clean towel after I used the one
which was in the room. Wonderful
prices. I saw that there was nothing
else to do but pay it, and I got some
laundry work done, and must have it
done over again before I could use it
Have you ever met Mrs. Carrie A.
Tuggle? She is one of the most re

and her work. I think I have said
enough for this time. I am now

DROPS POWER TO AID FRIEND
Sir William Tyrrell Volunteers
Secretary to British Envoy.
New York. An unusual story of
friendship between two men in high
office was told here today by Lieut
Col. Thwaites, British assistant pro
vost marshal, following the announce
ment that Sir William .Tyrrell would
accompany Viscount Grey as his pri
vate secretary when the peer arrives
as British ambassador to Washington.
Sir William was private secretary
to Lord Grey, then Sir Edward Grey,
at the outbreak of the war when the
new ambassador was British secretary
for foreign affairs. When Sir Ed
ward retired Sir William was made
undersecretary of foreign affairs and
held that important office for the
greater part of the war.
When his old chief decided to go to
the United States as ambassador, Sir
William volunteer to accept the com
paratively humble position of private
Ambassador Grey's sight has al
most failed, and it was this fact Col.
Twaites said, which determined Sir
William to make the sacrifice in posi
tion in the name of friendship.

of Eli Cooper, a Negro, was found to
day: in the ashes of a Negro church,
burned by incendiaries this week.
Three other Negro churches and a
Negro lodge in this section were burn

groes planned to "rise up and wipe
out the white people," and that Cooper
remarked the Negroes had been "run
over for fifty years, but this will all
change in thirty days." The burned
churches and lodge rooms were said
to have been the scenes of mass meet
ings recently during which the upris
ing of Negroes was discussed.
