PHILIPPINES FUTURE HOME OP
So Sayeth Senator Morgan of Ala
What he believes to be a practical
solution of the negro problem, The
senator says it is one that will 45
prive them of none of their rigMa
a, American citizens and at the
same time give them an opportunity
to better their condition, It is to
colonize them in the Philippines.
Jiis scheme I. to send them to the
islanda in vessels chartered by the
government, give each head of a
family a small homestead and efl
courage its cultivation, So will
does the president think of the
scheme that he has sent a special
commissioner to the Phillppnes to
inquire into the conditions, with the
view of recommending its adoption.
Such a scheme seems feasible en
ough on its face. The negro, by na
ture and by long residence in the
south, is fitted especially for tropi
cal climates. In such climates he
can pierfoma laborune whc a
wht mnwould succumb Th
Philippines need an army of such
laborers-they would be of more use
in the development of the country's
resources that the natives, who are
thriftless and as a rule indifferent to
anything except rob raise enough to
keep them in food. And, in further
advocacy of the scheme, It is urged
that the south does not want the
That is the weak part of the na gn
ment. For, despite all talk, the fact
remains that the south is not pqe
pared i do without the negro labor-,
and It I. likely to be many yeats,
if the time ever comes, before it is
so prepared. The same conditib~s
that make the negro a desirable fac
tor in the new Paciflc possessionsa
make him an indispensable factor ýn
Still. elim!nzting that part of tie
argument-that the south does not
want the negro--the Morgan scheme
is worthy of consideration and In- 1
vestigation, For there are, he
doubt, many of the race who would
welcome the chance to become in~e
pendent in the Philippines, rather
than remain in the south, as now,
a class set apart.
Mr. and Mrs. Geo. E. Willis woer
the bost and hostess of a delightful
Christmas dinkier party, whlebs 4
cluded Mrs. Wmn. Birthright, Mrs.
F. M. Lucas, Mrs. Burside, Messrs.
C. A. Davis and F. Pearl. The con.
ter of the table was ornamentel with
a cone built of oragnes with sprigs
of holly fringing at the bottom of the
pile and peeping out among the
fruit formed an unique centerpiece
of this attractive Christmas dinner
table. A four-pointed star, formed
of bright scarlet ribbons, was out
side of the orange cone and an
orange upon a mat of holly sprigs
was placed at eacu plate. The
evening was spent in playing whist
and general conversation. Among
thonse that joined the party after
dinner was Mrs. A. Nelson, Miss Ida
Nelson, Messrs. J7. H. Smith. B. J.7
Austin, Jas. Yancy anl W. .7. Burn

Mrs. A. Nelson entertained an
other one of the enjoyable dinner
parties, which made Christmas day
delightful, sat around the hospitable
board of Mrs. A. Nelson and daugh
ter, Miss Ida, who resides on West
Broadway, besides the family there
were pr~eent Mrs. C. Yancy, Chas.
A. Lair. After dinner the party was
joined by Mr. C. E. Duncan and Mr.
T. B. Amos.
The week in society was given
over almost entirely to Christmas
festivities and they were of an un
usually quiet nature. Family dinner
parties and home Christmas trees
for the little ones predominated. It
was essentially the children's week
and few indeed were the homes
where the fun and frolic of the see
son did not hold full sway.
Among those that Christmas trees
was Mrs. Comelia Yancy at her
home on South Colorado street. The
tree was heavily burdened with
nice presents. Among the other
amusements of this nature was
Jacob's ladder, at A. M. B.
church, which contained sev
eral nice things for the little fel
lows. This was conducted by Rev.
and Mrs. Allen, after which a nice
turkey supper was served in the

He came to our city a little over a
Year ago from Quincy, Ill. He is a
man full of courage, with high alms,
set purpose., who has the interest of

He is pastor of The Calvary Bapti t
Schurch, located on Second South~n

about five hlocks from the business
portion of the city. The property
is worth three thousand dollars. He
meets his payments promptly, and
will moon have the property standing
clear of debt, which will be a monu
meat of honor to the race in the
Sstate of Utah.
The auxilaries connected with the
church are a very interesting and
well attended Sunday school, and
the Dumas Literary society, which
meets every Wednesday night. It
is not only a pleasure to attend, but
one receives good and wholesome
instructions by listening to the ren

Rev. B. F. McIntyre, pastor of the
Trinity A. M, B. church, Is a man
filled with the Christ-like spirit. He
has entered upon his second confer
ence year and by his christian up
right life he has won the confidence,
honor and respect of the citisens of
the city, both white and colored.
While he has not made a very great
display outwardly, by the aid of his
falthful members, he has succeeded
in buying a nice little chapql on
Franklin avenue, in which to wor
Teauxiliaries connaected with
the church are the Bunnday school,

t' explaining the lessons, so thtat the

e The Young People's Christian En

nicely. Everyone takes great inter
nest in the work, and seems to have
a acquired the art of making the Bible
e studies of interest to the little ones,
t as well as the older people. Miss
Rosa Doicy, the secretary, keeps a
rjust and accurate account of all the

much under the management of

We are sorry to state at this writing
that Mrs. Powell Is very sick, but
Mrs. Crawford, the vice president,
will keep up the interest among the

being often at the bedside of Mrs.
The Trinity church choir was or
ganized September 16, 1902, and the
'grapid progress that has been made
since that time is due to the patient
and untiring efforts upon the part of
Professor 0. W. Lewis, the director
and organist. Professor Lewis eame
here from Philadelphia, Pa.. about
tseven months ago, and when the
schoir was organized he began in
structing them, and through his
patient and untiring efforts they
Bhave reached the point to where
tthey stand, second only to the great

Mr. Thomas H. Frame, the effi

hotel, is a man that thoroughly un
derstands his business. He has a
well trained crew of waiters that

up with the progress made in the
hotel world, but he also keeps his
crew trained up to the standard. It
is through him and his able crew
