of htttsaa attributes, and he reaches
the highest lateHectsal limits of beauty

We cannot improve upon, the rich
and marveloas philosophy of his giant
intellect. He ias sounded all of the
depths of thought, and left the world
a coarse of study from which it may
.learn the meaning of life for yet a

Robert R. Melon, and was- right by
his side at the opening of the League,
and rendered some .good service. It
was one of the best jjessions and J
am safe in jjsaymgtheoest session
ever held in-thej1iiiry of the organi
zation. One, was reminded of the
days of Booker X Washington, and
all of, the old timers, who. were there
so, declared what I nave told yo.
, "Dr. Hall, arid then there was Hon.
J; C Napier1, who was sC direct per
sonal fnend to Dr. Washington during
his life, and he is now a friend, to Dr.
Moton, and' has declared tnat he will
devote his time in helping" to. make
the League'what tt should, be and I
believe 'that he is doing what he said
that he would do. He was oh hand to
render any service, he could and right
by his side was his wfe, Mrs. Napier,
and of course you' know that she is
the,. daughter, of the late John M.
Langston, and a refined, cultured wo
man. She is devoted fo any cause in
which, her husband is interested.
Now then, came, tbe time for the
opening, and Dr. Robert R. Moton
took, his- .seat on the rostum bat it
was not his open. The meeting was
called ta order by the chairman of
tbe Negro Chamber of Commerce and
they have onein the city. Then fol
lowed .in order welcome addresses and
the program of the morning. HYhen
Dr. Jfoton was presented the people
stood up, and gave him one more ova-
boa. They showed their love for him
and later in a different way as I shall
tell you before 1 get through with
this writing business. I was so glad
to meet jo many of them people
They made a hig meeting, and I am
here fo tell you.
I will not take-up your time to
tell you about the -wonderful addressee
that were made, Jbnf I will tell yon
that Dr. Robert R.. Moton was re
elected president, and C C Spaulding
was elected chairman, of the executiTe
committee and John LWebb was
elected treasurer, Chas. H. Anderson;
of Jacksonville, Fla, resigned. As
they moved along- there were but few
changes in the official staff. Yon
know that this organization don't be
lieve in changes, but Mr. Anderson's
business was so that he could not
give the attention to the League, but
he will still fellow It and serve in any
capacity they want him. N. W. Col
lier was put on the Executive Com
mittee. W. L. Porter, editor of the
E. Tennessee News, was on the pro
gram but he could not get there, and
there were so many other things that
Fred JL Moore, editor of the New
York Age, and a long time friend of
Dr. Booker T. Washingtqn, presented
Dr. Robert R. Moton with a fine
Cadillac in the name of his friends.
Berry OTCelly and Dr. Plummer were
the leading spirits in taking hold of
it, and it was fitting that Fred .Moore
should make the presenting speech.
Mrs. Moton responded. She accepted
the fine gift and of course Dr. said) a
few words. r
The League h indeed a live thing
now, and they have many new plans
which, win be developed and X shall
let you know about them from time
to time Albion L. Holsey was elected
secretary of the League, successor -
Mr. Scott, and he ir a good secretary
and I am. proud of him. He is going
to push things, to the front. We need
just a few more like him. Mr. Hant
was there. I am going to tell yoa
about some more of them In another
I want ta give, my personal thanks
to W A. Aery, the publicity man of
Hampton Institute: He Is a fine gen

URGES DEFEAT OF NEW
Pointing out that R. Wayne Parker,
Congressman from the Ninth Con
gressional District of New Jersey was
Jthe only New Jersey Congressman
who voted against the Dyer bill when
it was passed by the House of Repre
sentatives by a vote of 230 to 119, the
National Association for the Advance
ment of Colored People have made
public a letter sent to its Newark
and Orange, N. J., branches Urging
colored voters to do everything in.
their power to defeat Mr. Parker, who
is a candidate for re-election. In the
letter the Advancement Association
pointed out that the Dyer bill has
given "colored voters a clear-cut issue
on which to determine who are the
friends and who are the enemies of
the Negro in the lower House of Con
gress and emphasized that unless the
threats of colored voters, made when
the Dyer bill was being debated In the
House of Representatives, to defeat
every Congressman who voted against
the bill, if it lay within their power.
that colored voters might as well keep
their mouths shut in the future unless
men like Mr. Parker were defeated.
This action against Mr. Parker is in
line with efforts being made by the
Advancement Association against Con
gressman Patrick J. Kelley, of Michi
gan, and Caleb R. Layton, of Dela
ware, who were the only Congress
men from their repective states, like
Mr. Parker, who voted against the
Dyer bilL The Association's letter
signed by James Weldon Johnson,
"On January 26th when the House
of Representatives voted on the'TJyer
Antl-Lynching .bill every Congress
man from New "Jersey voted to pass
the bill, save oneR; Wayne Parker,
