The Nugget Social given at, the Mt.
Zion Baptist Church on Monday even
ing was a most enjoyable affair.
Among other numbers on the program
were recitation by Miss Mertel War
mick; paper, Mr. H. Richardson; solo.
Mr. C. C. Hancock; duet, the Misses
Clark. The Nuggets were founded by
Miss Clara Threat and Miss Lydia
Clark. The church was beautifully
decorated and the supper was excel
lent. Much credit is due Mrs. Mann
for her effort in this matter.
Fred Douglass Day was fittingly ob
served by the Sunday Forum last Sun
day. The hall was beautifully decor
ated with evergreens, bunting and the
pictures of Douglass, Lincoln, Revels,
Bruce and Washington.
The program was interesting ana
instructive. The paper by Mr. John C.
Robinson was a masterpiece. It con
tained words of praise for the dead
hero and logical advice to his hearers.
Mr. James S. Murray read a most I
interesting paper on the reconstruc
Rev. J. A. Edmonson gave a most
interesting talk on our duty as citi

The musical part of the program
was equally interesting, being a solo
by Miss Katie Byrd, solo by Mr. J. B.
Reed, and duet by Miss G. Harvey
and Miss C. Threat.
The collection for the benefit of the
Fred Douglass Memorial and Histori
cal Association amounted to $3.50,
which amount was sent to Booker T.
Next week "My Wife's Family," a
musical farce-comedy, a merry con
glomeration of nonsensical fun, music
and dances, is what the advance agent
says about it. It was here before,
appearing at the Third Avenue The
ater last season, and it gave excellent
satisfaction. It was under the same
management, with practically the same
company this season, and as it will
have a better theater for a back
ground it will probably make good
again. People who go to the theater
to laugh and see plenty of color, mo
tion and music will en]oy "My Wife's
Family," for it is funny, very funny!

THE SEATTLE REPUBLICAN
The special edition of The Seattle Repub
lican, which had been planned to be issued Jan
uary Ist last, for reasons over which the man
agement had no control, could not materialize
at the appointed time, but will come out later
in the shape of an anniversary number of the
establishing of The Seattle Republican fourteen
years ago. In the meantime the work is being
vigorously prosecuted and when issued it ivill
be a thing of beauty.
Arrangements are being made to have a large
number of copies distributed in the Negro build
ing at the Jamestown exposition, which opens
next June. The number ivill contain pictures of
no less than 500 homes and persons in the North'
ivest, and also contain accurate facts and figures
of the progress of the Negro in the Northivest.
It means much to get these statistics, hence we
had to make haste slowly in the publication of

is, not those who stand in line all
night when certain attractions come
to town, but the class of people who
I go to a theater to enjoy the entertain
i ment offered. "The Diamond King,"
the play this week at the Lyric, is the
very best sensational melodrama seen
here this season at any of the the
aters, and its is played by the com
pany in such an excellent manner that
one would be led to believe that they
had been appearing In it for years.
The dramatic season at the Lyric The
ater closes this Saturday night, but
it is to be hoped that the same excel
lent company will return there after
the musical comedy season, which
opens at the Lyric Theater next Sun
day night, when Zinn's Musical Com
edy Company opens in "The Captain
and the Maid." The company was here
and appeared at the Seattle Theater a
few weeks ago. It is composed of
twenty-five singers, dancers ttnd come
dians, and the famous Zinn's dancing
girls, sixteen in number. They are so
clever that they would make some of
the New York choruses that obtain
$1.50 prices take to the tall timber or
jump into the Sound. The same ex
cellent comedians, Mortimer and Clif
ford, Mann and Franks, are with the
company, and there will be no ad
vance in prices at the Lyric, although
the engagement of this attraction
would easily justify it.
