A VALUABLE MAN.
At a delegated meeting of Bap
tist ministers, to consider the act
tion of Dr. King of Wavlaud
Seminary, aud his treatment to
colored students, an address to
the Baptist churches ot the United
State and the American Home
Mission society bus been issued
The address charges Dr. Kiug in
the year of '78 with mistreating a
student by the name of Young;
that at Redbark, t N. J., wheu
Prof. King was with his jubilee
troupe, he became so angry with
one of his lady singers, Miss Anna
M. Mason, that when she attempt
ed to ascend the steps of the cars
en route to Washington, his pas
sion sojfar got the better of him,
that he pushed her forcibly from
the second step to the first, against
the car. In the spring of '78 a lady
student, Miss Maggie A. Wash
ington, who had been qui:e ill for
several weeks, and as a result had
a very poor appetite, went to Prof.
King's door while he was at
luncheon (the students at this
time were not allowed luncheon.)
She asked him, "If she might not
ask the cook to give her a piece of
bread." There upon he became
enraged; told her "to leave the

these positions, except the school
board, he is receiving big wages.
The Bee scribe learns, that Secre
tary Lamar, has decided to make
a change, and Dr. Purvis' succes
sor will probably be either Drs. J.
It. Francis, Cook or Augusta. Dr.
Francis is from one of the best
families in the city, and his ap
pointment would meet with uni
versal approval. He is no politi
cian, hence no democrat will op
pose him. Dr. Samuel Le Count
Cook is from one of the oldest and
most respectable citizens. His fa
ther, the late John E. Cook, did a
great deal for the colored people
in this commuuity. He has large
practice in this city and has the
reputation of being a first class
surgeon. This gentleman is back

number of democratic medical

On last Sabbath evening, June
20, the "Church of Our Redeem
er," which is situated ou 8th st.,
near Howard University, was fill
ed with an appreciative audience,
representing some of the best ele
ment of the white and colored peo
ple of the District. The occasion
was the formal dedication of the
new edifice to the service of Al
mighty God. Rev. D. E. Wise
man the pastor, shared his pulpit
with Drs. Butler, Craighead,
Slaybaugh and Hamma, the last of
whom is from Baltimore and
preached the dedicatory sermon.
It is useless to attempt to give an
adequate account ot the sermon
for were the Bee to record the
gems of thought that fell from the
lips of that distinguished Divine,
the scribe would lose the elo
quence with which he presented
them. The text was "What mean
ye by these stones?" Dr. Hamma
graphically related the miracle of
the dividing of the Jordan, and as
we sat there we-saw the nrghty
walls into which the water had
been transformed, arid the .Israel
ites walking bravely over the bed
of the deep. The Dr. then appled
his text to the fcvent of the even
ing and after giving a brief nisto
ry ot the church, he concluded
with animpassionate appeal for
the Catholicity of the Christian
religion and of the Lutheran faith.
During the whole sermon, the au
dience was kept spell-bound, every
body seeming to be wholly under
the control of the speaker. After
