CHARLES E. STUMP, TRAVELING CORRESPONDENT
fFOR THE BROAQ AX, VISITS NEW YORK CITY,
WASHINGTON, D. C, AND OTHER CITIES IN THE
EAST, AND HE IS NOW HEADED FOR THE WEST.
New York City. Look at your last
letter and you win find that I was in
Kittrell, N. O, at Kittrell college, and
the guest of Prof. G. A. Edwards, that
great educator and the man who is do
ing so much for the peopla in that sec
tion of the world. He is a man who
win make a place right into your heart
before you realize what he is doing, and
his wife as I told you is -right by his
He certainly did use some gasoline
and got me around over the country.
We made two trips to Raleigh, and that
man just made me feel like I was some
pumpkins, and when we had made them
trips, then we were meeting friends.
Called at the printing establishment,
and found thai Editor E. M. Cheek had
left this world, but his widow is still
carrying on the business, "and she is a
busy business woman. They have a new
editor for the paper, but I did not meet
Saturday night we went down to see
the busiest man in Norh Carolina,
Berry 0Kelly, of Methods, N. O, th
man who out of his own pocket put up
a school for the people, and who ir
ready at any time to make a' contribu
tion to racial uplift.
Mr. O 'Kelly is a personal friend of
Dr. Bobeht B. Moton, of Tuskegee In
stitute, and ;was a friend to the late
Booker T. Washington and honors his
memory today. He is a man, every inch
of him. He has a real large general
store. It might be called a department
store, for you can buy anything you
want in-that store and thero ir no eolor
line in it. He was delighted to look in
my-bine eyes and greet me as a friend.
He had a talk with Prof. Edwards, in
viting him to attend the next session of
the National Negro Business League in
Atlanta, Ga. He told me to come along
Tho great trip of Br. Moton through
North Carolina was discussed and com
mented on. He declared that it was a
great victory for the race. Agreement
was had with him, for Dr, Moton is say
ing some Teal helpful things for us, in
other words he is speaking right out in
church, and pleading our cause. Of
course, there are men who cannot get a
hearing, who think they are race lead
ers, and will criticize Dr. Moton or any
one else who can get a hearing.
I have been to the Love drug store,
met Dr. Love; caned on the editor of
the Independent but ho was out; called
on the Lightners, the men who cover all
the mistakes of doctors, and then others.
I have been to that big school at Frank
leton, "Va, with Dr. Savage at its head
and to Hendersop, met many friends
1 and Sunday afternoon went out to a big
demonstration of the Odd reUows ana
enjoyed it so very much. I saw about
two acres of people, and I don't know
when I have seen so much food at one
Then, off for Washington, D: (X,
reaching there Monday morning I went
direct to the home of Dr. W. H. Jema
gin and he was soon there with his
automobile car carriage to tote me over
to Preedman's hospital, where I was
examined by Dr. Wakefield, and told
that it was necessary that I get off of
my feet at an early date and get right
in bed and from this yonwiD see that
I am not well yet and you wiU have to
pray for me that I may hold out and
hold on to life a little longer.
I made it from Washington to Phila
delphia where I spent one night with
Mr. and Mrs. Hinis Gaines, North Phila
delphia. They received me just like
they were receiving a father or brother
and made just that much over me.
WeU only night was spent there and
next day I went down town to see some
friends and then beat it up to New
York to be with friends here. Have
you been here I
I teU you this is some more big town
and hayseeds like me have a hard time
getting around. A f cUow with a red
cap on toted my bags to a laxible to
have me pay taxes, and he extracted
from my wallet jusft'30 eents, and that
feUow started to grunt away to- collect
my taxes and when I reached Bible
house a little thing "in front reminded
me that I owed just 90 cents, which was
paid cheerfuUy and willingly, for I did
not want to fall in the hands of these
police officers down here. It is just
like pulling "teeth to jget from one side
of the street to the other is this la&a's
town, but I made it just the same.
Wednesday, the Missionary Board of
the Missionary Department of the Afri
can Methodist Episcopal church held
one more interesting meeting. These
men direct the missionary activities of
the church and the expenditure of the
missionary money. It eessisti of a rep

The Board opened in reEgismsfltyle and
Caalman Beckett delivered an address.
Then .followed other phases of work
until the committees were aB appointed
and tho annual report was submitted
by Dr. Bankin. I want to congratulate
the church on having such an efficient
man. He knows tho missionary fields
and causes just as you know the letters
in your name when you see them. He
has made it a great study.
The members and friends of the Afri
can Methodist Episcopal church are
loyal to every claim of their church
and after reporting a balance of $2,
953.39 brought forward from the previ
ous fiscal year, Secretary Bankin, re
ported that his office had received for
missions, $76,276.84, making a total of
$79,230.25 and had expended $77,760.27.
He told where every cent of the money
came from and for what it had bsen
used which put him right on top.
During my stay in New York I was
the guest of one of the next Bishops in
the A. M. E. church, Bev. Ml W. Thorn
ton, D. D., pastor of Bethel A. M. E.
church.. Dr. Thornton has had a helluva
time since he has been in New York,
but it is all over now and he is riding in
the saddlo now and doing a great work
in New York. He is a scholar Vnd a
good pastor, and then he is a man, every
inch of him. He knows how to do and
what to do and will do it if you wffl
just keep out of his sunlight.
I have seen. Charles H. Anderson,
treasurer of the National Negro Busi
ness League, banker from Jaekaonvflle
and is to be a banker in New York. He
has already purchased the building and
putting it in order for the bank. Some
young men from Florida have opened
the finest ice cream parlor in the coun
try. It is manners to step into this.
Mr. Anderson is back of this also. He
is one more busy man. I shall have
something to say to you or some one
Thanks be to God that things are
moving in New York and I am moving
also. I wiU tell you about the bank, ice
cream parlor and other places in my
next. I have been to seo the place left
by Mme. Walker. Her daughter, Mrs.
Wilson, is in charge. It is one more
fino place. Look out for my next.
