We trust that Rev. Robinson of St

that we were at church anyhow.
We had often heard Rev. Wm. S.
Braddan preach, and we knew that his
sermon would be instructive, but we
had never heard the Berean Baptist
choir conducted by our friend Mr.
Yarborougb, assisted by Miss Estella
Bonds at the pipe organ. There is
something very striking at this

Mr. Mueller has been an honored
'resident of this greaUcity since 1883,
and his first employment was in the

Real Estate Deputy in the Board of
Review! He served ably in this ca
pacity until 1909 when he was elected
Alderman from the 29th Ward. Later
he established the real estate firm of

He is a man of family and a mem

It can be stated in all honesty and

creates a poignant character, a man,
reared in the South, possessing a
sensitive soul, who later settles in
Vermont where he is accepted with
out the restrictions which he has suf
fered in the South. The inhibitions
however, of his previous life were so
strong that he could not enter fully
into the life of the white people around
him. For instance, he cnnMn't hrintr
himself to go to a dance because all
the girls were white, and he was un
able to conquer the haunting fear of
insult or the vexing uncertainty of his
reception. It is a full magazine and

the cause. He himself approached the

Honorable Josephus Daniels, former

the possibilities open to the men of
his race in the South.

rendered the most conspicuous serv

only in improving the condition of the
race but in bringing about such an
understanding between the two races
as is essential to the welfare of both."
The Memorial, which costs about
$25,000 and is the gift of the colored
people to America, represents indi
vidual contributions from more than
50,000 colored people. This devotion,
on the part of the colored oeonle
themselves to the ideals for which
Booker T. Washington stood, is also
shown in the comment of Ray Stan-
nard Baker who savs: "Wherever ?n

to find Booker T. Washington's pic

ters Union decided a short time ago
to limit their funeral sermons to one
hour. Undertaker David H. Howard
appeared before the Union and called
attention to the fact that funeral ser
mons had been taking an extraordi
nary length of time and that the ser
mons lasted from one to five hours.
Mr. Howard's unusual statement was
backed up by Rev. R. H. Ward of
Allen Temple Church. He is reported
to have said that more than half of
the colored ministers spent more time
eulogizing the dead than in preaching
to their flocks.
A comparison was made in the
course of the debate of the value of
the time spent in attending funerals
"and its economic value if put in in
hard work. One speaker, himself a
minister, asserted that a man could
earn enough money in the time spent
listening to five hour funeral services
to support two-thirds .of the Negro
schools of the city. Most of the min
isterial brethren seemed to favor the
proposal and unanimously voted to
limit their sermons hereafter to one
It is indeed very pleasing to state
that Hon. Elliott W. Sproul, who has
the courage of his honest convictions
and who firmly believes in fair play,
justice, and in the equality of all
men before the law, regardless of
their race or nationality, possessing
these broad fundamental views, it va
