THE VIRGINIA BRAND VS. THE
The recent controversy between the
Forum, of Springfield, 111., the St Luke
Herald, of Richmond. Va.. and the
Nashville Glohe concerning the Nash
ville brand, continues to grow in in
terest, especially since the fair sex
has taken it up themselves. There
did not appear to be much to it as
long as the newspapers themselves
were vieing with each other, but
things have suddenly take a change.
It is said that Springfield, 111., has un
doubtedly some of the most beautiful
girls belonging to the race. While
every one knows that Nashville, Tenn.,
as the "Athens of the South," has
produced one Southern beauty after
another, while Richmond, Old Vir
ginia, is often looked upon as the
Dirth place of feminine beauty. "Nash
ville does not and will not back down
rom the race," said a charming belle
a few days ago, while the following
omes in a recent letter received by a
member of the Globe force from one of
Virginia's fair sex: "I note the contro
versy in the Globe regarding the Nash-
ille brand of girls with Springfield
and Old' Virgiia. I warn you. Do not
challenge the Old Dominion for a run
of pictures for you will surely run up
the white flag. Virginia boasts of many
fair daughters." The writer of the let
ter was entirely too modest to include
lerself in the race. Her recent photo
graph has been, seen by a Globe rep
resentative and would certainly make
good if put on exhibition. Some of
the ladies of Nashville declare em
phatically that they will not concede
lefeat until they are defeated.
GLOBE MAN IN JACKSON, TENN.
Jackson, Tenn., is one of the thriV'
ng cities of Tennessee; it is located
on the N. C. & St. L., Illinois Central,
Mobile & Ohio Railroad, about, half
way between Nashville and Memphis.
Located in Jackson is one of the four
Negro Publishing Houses in the
United States; it is known as the Col
ored Methodist Episcopal Publishing
House. Although not calling for a
deal of attention in the public eye
this Negro Publishing Plant under the
management of Dr. H. Bullock, who is
serving his second term as agent, is
doing wonderful work in the advance
ment of Negro enterprises. The in
stitution is located on one of the prin
cipal thoroughfares of Jackson and
can boast of being one of the few Ne
gro Printing Houses owning and oper
ating a Mergenthaler linotype ma
chine. The young lady who operates
the machine holds possibly the dis
tinction of being the only Negro wo
man in the United States able to man
age this intricate piece of machinery
The Globe reporter was entertained
royally by the manager and em
ployres of this institution; he had
the pleasure of meeting Mr. E. W,
Meek, the general foreman, who for
sixteen years has been at this one in
stitution as its general foreman and
manager and who represents them at
all times. Mr. Meek is an expert
enced, scientific, yet unassuming com
positor, pressman, bookbinder, and, In
fact, an all around workman. He
lias managed with such perfection
this establishment until his service is
almost indispensable. He also met

Christian Index, which is the official
organ of the C. M. EL Church and one
of- the few religious journals that do
not fill its columns with patent mat
ter and unwholesome advertising. Its
editorial columns are replete with a
eview of current topics and Dr.
Brown sees to it that the appearance
s kept up to the standard. The Globe
eporter ventures the assertion that
outside of the National Baptist Pub-
lshmg Board at Nashville, the C. M.
K. Printing House at Jackson is the
most complete Negro printing and
publishing establishment in the
United States. Notwithstanding the
membership of this church is not
quite 3)0,000, they have an enormous
circulation and do much to bring up
the standard of the Negro. The C.
M. E. Church only has five Bishops,
namely, Bishops L. H. Holsey, D. D.,
Atlanta. Ga.; Isaac Lane, D. D., Jack
son, Tenn.; R. S. Williams, D. D.,
Augusta, Ga., Elias Cottrell, D. D.,
lolly Springs, Miss.; C. H. Phillips,
D., A. M., Nashville, Tenn.; but
there is a discussion as to, whether
new Bishops shall be elected at the
next (onference. It is also rumored,
but the rumor has not been confirmed,
that r.n effort was on foot to move
this publishing house either to Mem
phis or Nashville. Nashville of
of couise has the better of the argu
ment, because of its already excellent
standing and rating as the largest
)ublishing center of the United States
except New' York, hence should they
move from Jackson, they would in all
probability locate in Nashville, where
they ought to be. This would render
deal of strength to the already
crowning importance of Nashville as
i Negro publishing house center.
Dr. Bullock is a man of excellent
business qualities, who knows the
power of the press and knows the ad
vantage of having Negroes read Ne
gro literature. The condition of the
nstitution is reported to be the most
prosperous in the history of its exis
tence. This year's business has al
ready shown an increase over the
same period last year.
GOING TO OHIO.
Rev. Win. Z. Thomas, of Colurahus.
Ohio, has invited Rev. C. H. Clark to
deliver the sermon dedicating his new
church in Columbus, O. The sermon
is to be preached in the early part of
May. Rev. Wm. Z. Thomas is build
ing a magnificent church edifice and
having attended school' in Nashville
ind pastored in Tennessee, he is well
acquainted with the Tennessee minis
tors. Hence it is his desire to have
one of tb u- representatives come to
the Buckt - Stote. In order to ac
cept this iuvitation Dr. Clark was
forced to decline one just given him
by the people of Hopkinsville, where
he usually goes each year in the in
terest of the school. Rev. Thomas has
made a wonderful record in Ohio. The
last improvement entered into was the
placing of an order with the National
Baptist Publishing Board for a fine
grade of church pews and a handsome
pulpit suit. The pews and pulpit suit
will aggregate about $1,000 in cost and
when installed in this new church wil
show up the good work being done by
this young giant.
