Whshington, D. C The Negro
population, has increased at a far
higher rate in. northern than in south
ern cities, according to statistics thus
4-far compiled by the census bureau.
In seventeen cities, each with aUotal
populatioqpJ 100,000 and more in the
north, and only one southern city,
Norfolk, Va., the percentage of in
crease of the colored race has been
greater than that of the white.
In only two southern cities, how
ever, 'Louisville, Ky., and Nashville,
Tcnn., has there been a decrease inl
the colored population during the last
ten years as against an increase in
the decade from 1900 to 1910, and
figures so far available show a move
ment of the Negroes to the large in
dustrial towns in every state and
away from the smaller cities and agriV
Migration From Farm Only?
Whether the great increase in the
Negro population of the large cities
is due mainly to an exodus from the
south or largely to the migration of
Negroes from the rural parts of north
ern states to the industrial centers
cannot be stated definitely until the
complete population figures of the
state's by races areavailable.
Delaware is the only state for
which figures .are nowavailable and
there, although -the Negro population
of Wilmington has increased by 1,670,
or 1& per cent, in the last ten years as
against a decrease of 655, or 67 per
cent, in the previous decade, the total
Negro population of the state shows
a decrease of 840, or 27 per cent, as
against an increase of 484, or L6 per
cent, from 1900 to 1910.
Chicago Increase 65.49L
In Chicago, the Negro population
increased 65,491, or 148 per cent, bat
in Springfield it dropped from 261
to -2J69 in the last ' ten years, ' as
against an increase of 734 from. 1900
to 1P10. In East St-Loots the rateH
tof increase was lower in me last xca
years than in the previous decade.
In St Louis, Mo, the Negro popu
lation increased 25,643, or 58, per cent,
while in Topeka, Kans., there was a
oecrease of 241, or 5.3 per cent
Whereas, There is pending before
the House-of Representatives of the
Congress of the United States, H.R.
1-4097, "A Bill having for its object
and purpose the assurance to persons
within the jurisdiction of every state
the equal protection of the laws and
to punish the crime of lynching"; and
Whereas, The crime of lynching
has become so widespread through
out the country, which in many states
the state authorities have almost
wholly failed to prevent or punish,
and in a vast majority of cases seem
to have been induced by local pre
judice against the race, color, nation
ality, or religion of the person
Whereas, The taking of the lives of
3,224 human beings in this country in
thirty years, fifty of whom were
women, shows that public conscience
has become insensible to the cnorm
ity of this evil, and that the ordinary
processes of law arc not able to cope
with it; and,
Whereas, Lynching is not confined
to any particular section, but is liable
lo be resorted to anywhere within the
confines of our great country, evi
denced by the fact that even the soil
of our beloved state, consecrated to
the dust of Lincoln, Grant, Logan and
John M. Palmer, has been stained by
blood drawn by the cruel hand of the
Whereas, The taking of so many
lives without due- process of law,
many of whom were only charged
with minor offenses, and a consider
able number proven by subsequent
developments"' to have been innocent
of the- crimes with which they were
charged, is not only a travesty upon
justice, but a blot upon civilization
and the fair name of America; and.
Whereas, It is the duty of the Fed
eral Government to make every per
son secure in his life, not only as a
matter of justice to the individual,
but also in order that this shall be
what our fathers intended, a govern
ment of, by and for the people;
Be It Therefore Resolved by .the
House of Representatives, the Senate
concurring herein, that the Members
of the Fifty-Second General Assem
bly of the State of Illinois request
the members of Congress from the
State of Illinois, to endeavor to bring
about, the passage of R. R. 14097, or
of .-inular legislation at as early date
as po'ssiblc; and be it further.

olution be sent to each member of
Congress from the State of Illinois

DR. DILLARD'S EULOGY OF
- GENERAL ARMSTRONG.
He Had the Democratic Mind"
Armstrong Speaks Today for Racial
Goodwill and Justice.
Hampton, Va. The Hampton In
stitute Founder's Day celebration
brought together prominent leaders
in education, business, and religion.
Dr. James Hardy Dillard, president
of the Jcanes and Slater Boards,
rector of William and Mary College,
and member of the General Education
Board, delivered the principal ad
dress. Dr. Dillard outlined the world-wide
influence of Gen. .Samuel Chapman
Armustrong, who founded Hampton
Institute in 1868 and remained its
principal until his death in 1893. Each
year a distinguished American deliv-j
ers -the Armstrong memorial address.
Among those who have spoken in
previous years are: Franklin K. Lane,
William Howard Taft, Robert R.
Moton, Woodrow Wilson, and Lyman
"General Armstrong was a mis
sionary," said Dr. Dillard, "but he
had something in him which mission
aries sometime lack. He had what
we may call the democratic mind.
He worked in the "spirit of equality
rather than in the spirit of conde
scension. Without this spirit he
could never have done the work he
did, nor given the inspiration which
he gave; nor spread the influence
which still abides in his memory.
"Not any more than there was in
thejieart of Abraham Lincoln was
there in tfie heart of General Arm
strong one drop of rancor or of de
sire of vengeance, toward the South
ern white people, high, or Iorr- Hii
attitude was entirely that of sym
pathy and co-operation. The South
from the firet respected him.
"There is today hardly a superin
tendent of public schools in the
whole Southern country who docs
not know of Hampton's work and
docs not seek the co-operation of
Hampton and Hampton's graduates.
"In the old Reconstruction -days
General Armstrong said, ihis is a
part of the war.' So now he would
say, 'This is a part of the war.' One
thing I know, he would not take the
gloomy view. I love to fancy that
General Armstrong would say today
something like this" in spirit, if not
urYes, the world has been passing
through serious times, days "3f un
certainty, days of distress; but good
is going to come out of all the trou
ble. Through pain to gain. We
mortals will not learn any other way.
"'Some are downcast, some disap
pointed, some resentful, all have felt
the strain; but we know that the way
of solution for all -social problems is
through the two great forces of edu-
caton and religion, school and' church,
more light, more heart
"'Let us double and redouble our
efforts for broader knowledge, wiser
thinking, deeper sympathy, kinder
feelings. No matter what comes, let
us trust to the two great command
ments, God and good-will.
"Let us have faith, faith that God
still lives, that justice and judge
ment are still the habitation df His
throne; let us hare hope, "hope that
we may be strengthened with the
courage that we need to stand for the
right with head erect; and let us bare
charity, charity for all men, high and
low, rich and poor, just and unjust
charity, which never faileth, which,
along with trust in God, is the begin
ning and the triumph of wisdom."
CATHOLIC PAPER ASSAILS
KNIGHTS OF KU-KLUX
New York. The first formal utter
ance of a Catholic paper against the
Ku-Kiux Kian nas 'appeared in
"America," a Catholic weekly pub
lished here. The article, by John B.1 located on either side of the main en-
Kennedy, charges the Ku-Klux Kian
with being an organization attempt
ing to revive old religious antipathies
and classes it as a competitor for
"initiation fees" with the Sons and
Daughters of Washington.
"As far as their patriotic activity
weighs in the news scale," the article
states, "it is conceivable that there is
less news interest in a group of
Knights of Pythias bound for a clam
bake than in a group of Ku-KIux
Knights bound for a 'Nigger bake,
but there is no question of the rela
tive patriotic merit of the two functions."
The article ends by attributing the
religious activities of the kian to envy
of the war and reconstruction record
of the Catholics.
Some ten or twelve years ago, Mr
lirnest II. Williamson, who is a
graduate of the, Tuskcgce Institute.
Alabama, who was always a great ad
mirer of its founder, the late Booker
T. Washington, started in the under
taking business in a small way at
5028 and 5030 South State street, and
by working early and late sticking
close to business and by dealing hon
estly with his patrons he gradually
landed on a solid foundation and he
began to invest some of the money
which he derived fom his business
into income real estate. Several years
ago, he bought the vacant lot running
from 5121 to 5123 South State street,
and the lot and three story brick
building adjoining it on the south
giing him 66 feet frontage on State
street by 165 feet deep, bak to the
Not long thereafter he began the
construction of the new building on
the vacant part of his real estate
holdings at that point -
Owing to the scarcity of first class
workmen more than six months was
consumed than what he figured on
in the construction of the building
which is a great credit to Mr. Wil
liamson in cverj respect and a last
ing monument to the neighborhood
where the building is located and will
stand for many years to come.
The new building is three stories
high, red brick front, including cement
basement where the steam heating
and hot water plant-is located, which
furnishes plenty of steam and hot
water for the entire building. On the
second and third floors front arc lo
cated two" five-room flats with white
marble steps leading up to them. Two
general and two private offices are
trance of the building which is all
wainscoated with smooth white mar
ble and the walls in the hallway as
well as the walls in the private offices
are all made ever so beautiful with
lovely or magnificent free-hand oil
paintings which have been wrought
out at great expense by Mr. George
Winslow ,who is one of the best and
most artistic colored artists in this
country and he drank in much of the
training along that line at the feet
of some of the most noted masters of
high art in France.
In the midst of the lovely or beau
tiful oil paintings, white marble wains
coating, highly polished wood work,
easy chairs and other fine and expen
sive trapeings, all pleasing to .the -e.
one does not feel that they are in an
undertaking establishment, but rather
that they are resting up in a finely fur
nished parlor or drawing room.
In the rear part of the building are
located the chapel which will seat one
hundred and fifty-six persons, which
contains a pulpit and plenty of room
for the choir, on the north side of
the chapel and directly east of it is
the morquc, cooling or lay-out rooms.
The show or display room is 43 by
60 feet and it is loaded down wih
all kinds of caskets, rqjes and with
all kinds of undertakers supplies.
Still in the rear is located the large
garage which can hold 36 cars and a
gasoline tank in connection with the
garage which holds one thousand gal
Ions of gasoline. Mr. Williamson
owns four, cars himself and a fine
modern hearse and he has consider
able space in his garage to rent out
to those who desire to store their
cars in a safe place. "
-When he is-conducting funerals the
casket and the mourners are loaded
into the cars on the side just as they
leave the chapel and there is a wide
driveway leading to the street and by
that ararngement there is no. block
ing of the streets at any time.
All in all, the whole establishment
reflects undying credit on the enter
prise and goaheadedncss on the part
of Mr. Williamson.
