This state of affairs is hurtful, though
it is the work of the underdrift.
That Black Bottom, with all of its
dens of shame and its bloody records
cf crime, is fated to go, is a blessing;
for it is not only a cesspool of shame
in which crime is breeded, but the
criminals leave their trail of disgrace
across the pathway of the Negro peo
ple. The Globe Is keeping its lower
lights burning, so that those in the
gutter may steer off shore and shun
the breakers. "Thou shalt not kill."

STAG PARTY IN HONOR OF THE
GLOBE'S SPORTING EDITOR.
Thoueh it seemed as if the skies
were weeping at the thought of los-
ng from the realm of bachelorhood,
uch a brilliant star a3 Mr. James Gar
' eld Blaine Boyd, all was serene In the
arlors of the Railway Men's Pro-
'ectlve Association last Saturday
night when a galaxy of gay bachelors,
with a few benedicts sandwiched be
tween, assembled for the purpose of
riving a farewell stag to another of
their number who is so fortunate as
to get off. Tn conjunction with the
Algonquin Club of which Mr. Boyd is
i. member, the Honey Pot Branch of
f.he Printer's Club, of which he is also
in honored member, did honor to
fheir fellow Honey-Potter.
'Several skits had been prepared to
'nitiate Mr. Boyd into the mysteries
of the benedict rank, but owing to the
nclemency of the weather the trained
performers could not be persuaded to
brave the fury of the elements. Hence
one of the enjoyable features of the
stag parties of the Honey Pot Lodge
had to be dispensed with.
Just before the toastmaster, Mr. bu-
-rene Pace. President of the Algon
quin?, called upon the representatives
of each organization for a speech, a
tiashlight picture was made of the
fathering. Mr. D. .Wesley Crutcher,
Treasurer of the Algonquins, In a hu
morous effort, responded to a toast on
behalf of his organization, while Mr.
Geo. O. Boyd, President of the Print
ers' Club, and Chairman of the Execu
tive Committee of the Algonquins, re
sponded on behalf of the printers. Mr.
T. Bla ne Boyd, the honoree, in tne
most eloquent effort of the- evening
(he is somewhat of an actor as well
ts a sporting editor of no mean abil
ity), thanked "the boys" for the reel
'ngs of tender regard they had shown.
The following was the lunch served:
Crackers. Swiss Cheese.
Light Bread. Ham.
Cheese Straws. Sour Pickle.

CHARGES ARE UNTRUE.
"I am falsely accused," said Attor
ney P. W. Adams to a Globe reporter
who called upon him to get a state
"lent In regard to an item that ap
reared in one of the recent issues of
he daily papers. "I can give you the
facts in the case that are necessary,"
continued Mr. Adams, "to prove that
Mr. Isaac Denweed, who entered this
ase atrainst me. is mistaken. I can
nrove this by other witnesses, which
I will do at the proper time. The
$24.00 was not charged for collecting
fbo .risiru. but was charged for 12
'v.s' KTvke u $'-'.00 per day while
attending to this pension. I was
forced out of the city at my own ex
pense at $2.00 a day in order to attend
to ceitain matters pertaining to this
case and only rendered my bill accord
ing to the actual expense Incurred."
When asked if he had read the state
ment in the papers, Mr. Adams replied
that he had, but that no corrections
were offered, because he would pre
fer the correction made at the time of
the trial, which has been postponed
until other witnesses can appear.
The following is the clipping that ap
peared in the dally papers of this
"P. V. Adams, a negro attorney of
this city, was taken before Commis
sioner E. L. Doak on Wednesday after
noon, Adams being charged with col
lecting an illegal fee for prosecuting
the pension claim of Isaac Denweed.
Specifically Adams is accused of col
lecting $24 for prosecuting the claim,
but by law attorneys are forbidden
from charging a fee for the prosecu
tion of such cases exceeding $10. Sev
eral witnesses for the Government were
examined on Wednesday, among these
being Special Examiner Sullivan, of
the United States Pension Bureau. At
the request of the defendant the case
was continued until next Wednesday
in order to give the defendant an op
portunity to obtain some information
from Washington, which it Is desired
to introduce as evidence."
Attorney P. W. Adams has offices
in Napier Court and has been looked
upon as one of the progressing prac
titioners at the local bar. He has
given a deal of .his time, it is said, to
the r,ens'on business. Mr. Adams
stated to the Globe reporter that the
man who is bringing the charge is
Tot altogether very sound, and that
he fenrs this was done in one of his
unsound moods, as he has been known
o ''rive off with teams not belonging
to him, and to do other acts 'that no
sane man would do.

of Mr. William Caruthers, 611 Jo John

ment as the bed clothing was burning

ruthers and brave fighting by both,
