Infantry, for conspicuous gallantry
during an engagement with Pulajanes
at Tabon, P. I., July 24, 1906; espe
cially in setting an example of cool
ness and bravery to the members of
the Philippine constabulary with
whom they had been surrounded by
the Pulajanes. The two colored sol
diers really aided in bringing the en
gagement to a successful conclusion.

The Brownsville affair is proving to
be a two-sided question. The senate
is getting mixed up, democrats mak
ing speeches for a republican Pres
ident, and Mr. B. R. Tillman is con
tending for justice for Negro soldiers.
What Is going on along the line of
spcechmalving Is enough to extend the
earthquake from Kingston to Wash

We will be glad when the end Is
Teached and the question is finally
Politics should have no place in
dealing with great questions like that
of the Negro soldiers now confronting
The Brownsville episode is, in our
opinion, purely a question of consti
Justice and fair play should be guar
anteed to all citizens.
This is a question that, in our
opinion, should be wisely investigated,
and settled once for always.
There Is, we believe, a limit to the
Presidential prerogative. This Is a
good time to make known that limit
since this is the first case of its kind

were excused from classes that those
who desired might attend the inau
guration of Gov. Patterson. Among
those who took advantage- of the op
portunity to attend were II. F. Mitch

might have been expected, there were
very few Negroes present, but it is the
concensus of opinion of those who
were there that the occasion was in
spiring and uplifting.

Dr. Boyd seemed delighted to show us

one of Incalculable value from an edu

feel discouraged about . the "Negro
Problem," we advise you to visit Dr.

Thursday evening, Jan. 17, the Fisk
Debating Club held its regular month
ly meeting in the collegiate room of
Livingston Hall. This was the most
interesting meeting we have had
this year. The subject for debate
was one in which every Negro is in
terested: Resolved, That President
Roosevelt was justified in dismissing
the three companies of the Twenty
fifth Infantry. The speakers on the
affirmative were T. P. Haralson and
W. G. Upshaw; on the negative, J. A.
Green and Wm. Dawson. The speak
ers on both sides showed that they had
given much care and thought to the
subject, ami to their manner of deliv
ery as well. The decision of the
judges was in favor of the negative.
Music was rendered by the Fisk Quar
