Sam Houston In which Major Penrose
Is on trial for neglect of duty. Mr,
Sanborne. manager of the Western
Union Telegraph office at Brownsville,
was the first witness to-day. Upon
cross-examination he testified to pass
ing a man in U. S. army uniform
going into the gate at Ft. Brown on
the night of August 11, after the
shooting up of Brownsville. He
could not say whether the man car
rled a gun or club, nor could he say
whether he was a U. S. soldier or one
of the employees or Mexican peons.
He did not hail the man nor did he
see his face. Later he saw several men
coming from the direction of the of
fleers quarters, but does not say he
questioned either of them.
C. B. Chase, the locomotive engineer
who stopped at the Miller House, told
of being awakened by shots and see
ing men dressed In soldiers' uniform
firing on the police, James Belden
was the only man who testified that
he saw Negroes dressed In army
clothing firing on the police lieutenant,
but it is indicated from what is heard
about the post that this teslmony was
led by the examination. The lieuten
ant of police in the great city of
Brownsville (which possibly has as
many as half a dozen officers) whose
name is given as H. Y. Domlnguez
and who now wears an empty sleeve,
was put on the stand in the after
noon and was the only witness for to
day, lie testified that his horse was
shot from under him and that his arm
was so seriously wounded as to ne
cessitate amputation the next day.
When asked the direct question he de
clared that he was shot by govern
ment soldiers, but it is not learned
nor is it stated that the soldiers were
Negroes. He said the firing came
from the federal reservation and that
notwithstanding it was night and
dark, he could discern khaki trousers
and blue shirts, which elicited some
broad smiles by the court. There ap
pears to be the usual amount of In
terest which promises to continue.
THE PENROSE COURT-MARTIAL.
San Antoxio, Tex., Feb. 11. The
first witness to testify to-day in- the
court-martial at Ft. Sam Houston was
Dr. F. G. Comb, Mayor of Brownsville,
Tex. Mayor Comb testified that aft
er the raid he made his way to the
post with an escort of soldiers who
had come up with Capt. Lyon. He
said that he saw MaJ. Penrose and told
him the troops had shot up the town.
Penrose expressed surprise, saying
that it had been reported to him that
citizens fired on the post. Capt. Mack
lin came up saying he had been asleep.
From cross-examination of H. Y.
Domlnguez it developed that the po
lice at the time of the raid wore khaki
uniforms, similar to those of the
F. E. Starck. customs Inspector at
Brownsville, told of the raid as he wit
nessed it. The gun shots sounded like
the crack of high power guns. Bul
lets went through his home. He saw
a policeman that night dressed in
PROMINENT DIVINE COMING.
It has been announced that through
the efforts of Rev. J. B. Curry and Dr.
Lambert, of this city, that Rev. Dr. Jo
slah Strong, the eminent minister and
author of Buffalo. N. Y., will be In
Nashville on the 19th and 20th of this
month. Dr. Strong Is the author of
several important books, the most
prominent being "Our Country" and
"Our City." Dr. Strong comes under
the auspices of the Methodist Episco
pal Church, South, which church,
through the efforts of its leading min
isters, is doing a great work. This
has been demonstrated more than
ence. It will be remembered that
only a few weeks ago in their recent
conference they listened with interest
and pleasure to a timely and well pre
pared address by Prof. Gilbert, of
Payne College in the State of Georgia
vho addressed the conference of min
isters at the Methodist Publishine
House. The theme of Dr. Strong's
lecture is believed will be "How the
city preachers can help fashion the
work of Christianity" or somethlne
along this line. A special address will
be delivered to all the colored minis
ters of Nashville. This address will
take place on February 20, at 10
o'clock a. m.. at the preachers' head
quarters, Methodist Publishing House
on Broadway. It is expected that this
will be one of the largest interdenomi
national audiences gather together in
It has just been learned that an Im
portant change has transpired in the
National Baptist Union which is the
largest ps-per published by Negroes in
the United States. This paper has
a large reading circulation, being a 16
page wceklv; then, too. it is known
to be the official organ of the National
Baptist Convention with its 2,300,000
members. From an editorial and me
chanical viewpoint this paper Is easily
the superior of any turned out. Its
editorials have always been of the
highest class. It never contains any
patent matter and therefore has been
looked upon as the foremost of all
journals. The paper heretofore, it is
learned, has been jointly managed by
the Nation! Baptist Publishing Board
and the National Baptist Young Peo
ple's Union Board. The new deal, It
is learned, chanees this order of
things. The interest of the two boards
Is practically, the same except the man
agement passes to Dr. iBoyd's board,
while Dr. E. W. D. Isaac takes charge
of the editorial department and his
duties, it is said, will be directed soul
ly to the editorial work and news mat
ter. Heretofore he has had charge of
part of the mail and of other affairs.
Dr. Boyd will in the future, through
his Board, . assume the entire manage
ment, mailing the paper, printing it
and doing such other work as comes
hi the line of management. The pa
per will continue, as before, appear
ing each Saturday.
iMJss Hukill, principal of the Eng

Many logical and thoughtful things
were said during the discussion of
President Roosevelt's political pyro

a fair share of notice, also the feasi

which will be as recurrent as his natal
anniversary and as long as the hearts
of a struggling, oppressed and noble
people are capable of appreciating the
nobility of his great soul and his
matchless life's work.
The occasion furnished the fact
that the Negro has not only a so
cial side, but an intense observant,
thoughtful side to his nature. In these
days that require caution, he is think
ing; he is reading; he Is observing,
and he is learning to act in the best
interest of himself and posterity as
was remarked by those present.
When the time came to part, each
expressed himself as highly pleased
with the pleasures of the evening and
wished each other success in the fu
