Interest was revived in the Senate
Committee's investigation of the
shooting ud of Brownsville, by a re
port sent out from Galveston, Tex
that one of the discharged men had
confessed that he participated In the
raid and implicated several other
members of Company B, to which he sports
claimed to have belonged. An inves
tigation of the report showed that' it
wa3 simnly a newspaper fake worked
up by a reporter on oue of the Galves
ton papers. The man charged with
making the confession was not one of
the discharged soldiers, nor had he
ever been in the military service of
the United States.
The investigation . at Washington
and the court-martial cf Maj. Penrose
which is being held at San Antonio,
Texas, have not brought any reliable
evidence so far that would Justify the
extraordinary punishment inflicted
upon soldiers by President Roosevelt

timony has been very favorable to the
discharged men, while the citizens of
Brownsville have been put in the light

an extent that they were ready to

A DESERVING PROMOTION.
Nashville has lost one of its enter
prising young men in the person of
Mr. Arthur G. Price. Mr. Price after
being besieged with flattering offers
from several firms in the State, was
persuaded to accept a position as man
ager of the People's Steam Laundry
in Memphis, Tenn. Mr. Price began
with the Economical Steam Laundry in
this city about six years ago. Al
though a young man, he worked ear
nestly, diligently and untiringly until
he built up the trade of this institu
tion to be a paying investment. He

he had gone to Memphis and investi

that he would better himself by going
to a city where there seemed to be a
greater possibility for the Negro in
that line of work. Then, too, the pro-
voters of his state. For under the
ireneral government the "Jim crow"
