THE CAMPAIGN OPENS.
Nineteen months until the election
of a President, but the campaign is on
with a vengeance. The storm centre
in the republican party at present is
Ohio. It is in this state that the fate
of Roosevelt's candidate is to be de
cided. Mr. Taft's candidacy was
launched from the White House last
.week with a five million dollar con
spiracy to down the Rooseveltian poli
cies, for the accompanying pyrotech
nics. This is followed by an interview
from the President's son-in-law en
dorsing the big breezy Secretary of
War. Senator Foraker, who repre
sents the opposition to the President
naming his successor, explicitly ex
plained his position Wednesday. Ohio
is under the glare of the calcium lights
with special spot lights for Foraker
and Taft, and, since the former has
made such a fight for the boys of the
Twenty-fifth, the outcome will be
awaited with interest by Negroes
throughout the country.

corps of energetic agents commis
sioned to solicit insurance among the
colored people of the city. This de
partment was and Is manaeed exclu
sively by colored agents. The work

now holds. Under his charge the

T HOWARD CONGREGATIONAL
The farewell service at Howard
Congregational Church, given in hon
or of Mrs.. Virginia . W. Broughton, the
State Superintendent of the Colored
Women's Christian Temperance Un
ion, who sails soon for Rome, Italy, to
attend the International Sunday
School Convention, was well attended
and was hearty and enthusiastic. Mrs.
Broughton is too well known to the
readers of the Globe to need introduc
tion a graduate of Fisk University
with the first class sent out from that
famous institution, a tireless worker
in church and reform organizations, a
speaker of unusual power, and one of
the most prominent Negro women in
the South. The local W. C. T. U., of
which Mrs. James Bond is President,
gave the farewell service.
Mrs. Bond presided. Mrs. Plnkston
presided at the piano and lead in the
service of song. Miss Robinson read
the scripture lesson and Mrs. Susan
Lowe led in prayer. "Blest be the tie
was then sung.
The president of the local union in
troduced Mrs. Broughton, who took as
her text the motto of the W. C. T. U
"For God and Home and Native
Land." She showed why Negroes
should be interested in the W..C. T. U
It stands for good morals, pure reli
gion, pure homes, pure politics; it
stands for childhood and womanhood:
it is the foe of the saloon, and the sa
loon is the Nesro's greatest enemy
Negroes must line up against the sa
loon. She said that she hoped to
creditably represent the Negro wom
anhood of America.
Bishop Phillips spoke of "Fellow
ship, and gave expression to senti
ments of appreciation and esteem.
He spoke highly of the character and
work of Mrs. Broughton, and heartily
endorsed the Union and its work.
Miss Perkins spoke of the local
work and pledged the state President
that the work would be carried on
with energy while she was abroad.
Mrs. Bond wished her a "bon voy
age." Deacon J. C. Napier bade her fare
well in a few well chosen words. He
referred to the time when the colored
people of Nashville were closer to
gether than now, and spoke of the
great work to the community of Mrs.
Broughton's father and mother. He
was a temperance man and in sympa
thy with the growing temperance sen
timent. A free will offering was taken
for Mrs. Broughton.
"God be with you till we meet
igain,' was sung as the audience came
forward and shook Mrs. Broughton's
hand and bade her farewell for a time.
The benediction was pronounced by
Rev. James Bond.

ANNUAL BOARD MEETING
Sunday School Union Dr. Chappelle
Makes Good a Report Bishop
Turner Lectures at Payne
The regular annual meeting of the
Board of-Managers of the Sunday
School Union of the African Method
ist Episcopal Church, convened on
Wednesday in the office of the Pub-
ishing House, 206 Public Square. A
lull attendance of the board was pres-
nt, and the regular routine of busi-
icss was gone through. Dr. Chappelle,
he secretary of the institution, sub
mitted a report that was creditable to
him and which pleased the board to
the uttermost. His report showed that
while there had been an increase in
his expenses, there had also been a
aorrsponding increase in his receipts.
This institution is the oldest among
Negroes to start the publication of
Sunday school periodicals. It was or
ganized in 1882, by Dr. C. S. Smith,
now a bishop in his church. Dr. Smith
was at the head of this institution un
til he wa selected to the episcopacy
in 1900 at Columbus, Ohio. Dr. Chap
pelle succeeded him in that year. In
coming to Nashville, he found nothing
here but the bare walls of the house.
He at once went to work and in less
Chan two years had installed a plant
that was second to none. He bought
the very best machinery and printing
material that could be had, and is
fuming out more work and better
work than has been turned out from
the house during its existence. His
report showed that it was necessary
from time to time to Increase both
the number of employees and the
amount of machinery and printing ma
terial. The total receipts for the year
were $36,482, which is an increase
over all previous years. The board
unanimously adopted his report and
expressed themselves as being highly
pleased with the manner in which he
conducts his business.
Dr. Chappelle Is being favorably
considered as a candidate for the bish
opric at the next session of the sener
al conference, which convenes in Nor
folk, Va., in May, 1908, and the great
record he has made during his admin
istration as secretary and treasurer of
the Sunday School department of his
church, in the minds of many, entitle
h-m to the honor.
The members of the board present
were Bishop H. M. Turner, of Atlanta,
Ga.; Rev. J. C. Williams, Sumter, S.
C; Rev. J. A. Jones, Shelby ville,
Tenn.; Rev. J. M. Turner, Lexington,
Ky.; Rev. L. Gaines, Baltimore, Md.;
Messrs. L. Winter, C. S. Randals and
Richard Hill, of Nashville. Bishop
Lee, who is the bishop of the confer
ences of Tennessee and Arkansas,
was also present and visited the ses
sions of the board.
Bishop Turner lectured at Payne
Chapel A. M. El Church on Wednes
day night to a large and appreciative
audience. Every one who heard him
expressel themselves as having been
greatly benefited by being present.
Bishop Turner is a man of rare abil
ity, and is conceded to be living ahead
of his time. Hie is well stricken with
age, but is vigorous and active, al
ways prosecuting the cause of his
race. The members of tho board re
turned to their several homes Wednes
day night and Thursday morning.
Bishop Turner returned to Atlanta, Ga.,
and Bishop Lee left for Shelbyville,
Tenn., to hold the annual board meet
ing of the Turner Normal and Indus
trial School of that place.
