tremendous crowd which filled the

people from all parts of the city were
seen in the audience.
PEARL HIGH SCHOOL NOTES.
Pearl School base ball team defeated
the Waldenites in a holly contested
game last Friday afternoon to the tune
of 15 to 8. A good crowd was present
to wltnrss the game, many ladies be
',Te-.t Fvkiav aternoon, April 2G, at
2:30 o'clock the Pearl Washingtonians
will measure strength with the Fisk
second tram. If the weather is favor
al lo, a large audience is expected, as
it is reported that Fisk will have a
half-holiday on that date on account of
the meeting of the Congregational As
sociation. The Pearl nine appears to
be in the pink of condition. Professor
Washington, the manager, for whom
the club is named, declines to give the
line up to the public and it is said
that he has a surprise to spring when
time is called for the game to begin.
There appears to be much hard
study and 'deep thinking on the part
-)f the pupils of this school now "that
final examinations are close at hand.
The devotion to books is very notice
al le among the 11-A and 8-A Grades,
members of whi'h are candidates for

..Irani mar school respectively.
The Prinrijal and teachers have
taken pains to notify the parents of all
doultful ones in advance, that every
possille thing might be done to pre
vent nny from failing. In a talk to
the school a few days ago, the princi
pal said that much valuable time had
been v a-tcd by some of the pupils and
a terrible school earth-quake was im
minent unless improvement was made.
Many names will be found missing in
all the gradfs when promotions are

A BIG SUNDAY SCHOOL.
A Globe reporter dropped in on the
Mt. Olive Sunday School Sunday
morning, and was indeed encouraged
at the size of the school. Of course
't. has been conceded long ago that the
church itself was by far the largest
int he city, but this did not necessa
rily mean they should have the largest
Sundey school. Sunday schools are
made by active workers and their at
tendance, as a rule, depends upon th(
vmonnt of interest injected in the
study of the Bible by officers and
teachers. This school had about two
'in nd red in attendance Sunday morn
ing, while the enrollment is just two
hundied and fifty, a wonderful show
!ng in attendance, compared to the eu
ollment. There seemed to be no un
gual effort on foot, but a glance at
the collection would indicate some
thing of a rally day. The secretary
reported the day's collection to be
'lO.SO, 40 cents of which was added
to the "Sinking Fund" of the Sunday
school, which is held In reserve for
sick members. The banner class was
reported to be class No. 9, Rev. Henry
A. Boyd, teacher, with a collection of
$3.40. This class is composed entirely
of young ladies and has held the ban
ner for the past four Sundays. .
A very prominent visitor was pres
ent in the person of Rev. Wm. Beck
ham. He was introduced to the school
and delivered a neat little lecture. The
superintendent iMr. James Hurt, an
nounced that an effort had already
been put on foot to bring the Sundaj
school up to five hundred.
INDIAN TERRITORY NEGROES
Advices from Muskogee, I. T., con
Trm the report that the constitution
now being drafted by the constitution
al convention will be strenuously on-
posed at the polls in the coming elec

strongest men in all the republican
party of the proposed new state, will
oppose the ratification of the consti
tution. Despatches to the daily press
eem to be of the opinion that Pres-
ient Roosevelt will also veto the new
onstitution. At any rate it appears
that 4,000 Negro votes will be cast

TO THE PASTORS OF THE A. M. E.
You who have not Allen Christian
Endeavor Leagues in your ' churches,
nlease organize the same at once, and
?et your various committees to work.
Tt would be a shame to African Meth
odism for this great Convention to

lurches and psstors of this city to
in arrears. Let the ministers of
the city wake up and do something
that Is, get busy.

TRANSFERRED FROM GREEN
VILLE, MISS.. TO NASHVILLE,
The post office department at Wash-'no-ton.
D. C does many thlmrs In
shifting about its employees to fill va
cancies that would seem surprising
when one does not know the real
vstem. One of the recent moves In
this direction was the transferring of
Mr. L. T. Lewis from the post office
't Greenville, Miss., where he was a
regular letter carrier, to the letter
carrier force at Nashville, Tenn. Mr.
Lewis has been in the mall service
about four years, and it appears that
ho hfl "i'c. nn ?1r,nH'-n rn dfreet. to
the ' "in. A...-:rT1or;il for tvn?,r
to rc-Pii- o.lico .nil according!:' had
been promised the first vacancy in a
desirable city. There existed a va
cancy in the Nashville force, so Mr.
Lewis was transferred. He arrived la
the city a little more than a week j
ago, but did not go to his route until
last week. He has been given a route j
in South Nashville. The record of
Mr. Lewis as a carrier In Greenville
is a worthy one and speaks well for
him during his four years of active
service. He comes to Nashville to
begin a new career, which he expects
to make as creditable as the one at
home. It adds another carrier to the
force of the local post office.
The Sunday school at Hickory
?trove had a rally on last Sunday. An
excellent program was rendered by
the Sunday school members. The
children raised $1.85.
Miss Lizzie Reed has returned from
Mrs. Amanda Coleman has returned
rom her visit North.
Rev. Mr. Johnson, of the C. M. E.
Church spent Sunday with his

PROMINENT VISITORS IN THE
Miss Fmma S. Malone, who spent
several months recently visiting her
mother in her native town, Athens,
Ala., resides in Warren, Ohio, and
Miss Ella M. Thomasson, of Athens
Ma., who accompanied Miss Malone
is far as this city, were the guests of
Capt. and.iMrs. R. B. Richardson at
their beautiful and well-appointed
home, 1.015 Sixteenth avenue, North,
for a few days last week. '
Miss Malone stopped over ostensi
bly to see some of her childhood
friends who reside here and whom
she has not seen in many years and
also to pay a visit to her old alma
mater, Fisk University, which she
has not seen since she left its sacred
and beloved precincts many years ago,
ind Miss Thomasson, the only young
lady of the class of 1894, Fisk, ac
companied Miss Malone.
They, in company with Mrs. Rich
ardson, were escorted by Mr. J. D.
Crenshaw, a former fellow-townsman,
to see the National Baptist Publishing
plant. After being taken through
every department of this institution,
they expressed pleasure and surprise
at its magnitude and the harmonious
md genial atmosphere surrounding its
busy and bee-like activities, saying
that a look In upon the great Institu
tion and Its workings leaves a convin
cing impression that it is one of the
greatest uplifting lever3 In the racial
life of our people as a moral and re
ligious agency, and more especially
the denomination which it serves and
which must have pride In it and its
founder, Dr. R. H. Boyd.
Miss Malone left Thursday night
for her home In Ohio, and Miss Thom
pson will remain in the city several
weeks visiting relatives and friends.
MR. WARD GOES NORTH.
It has been learned that Rev. G.
Wm. Ward, who is a member of the
National Baptist Publishing Board,
ind who recently was pastor of the
Monumental Baptist Church, Chatta
looga, has accepted the pastorate of
'he Zion Baptist. Church, Indianapo
Ms, Ind. Rev. Mr. Ward is well known
n Nashville. He is a young man
nilly capable of holding his own In
e.he pulpit. Several years ago he ran
i very successful meeting at the
ifth Avenue Baptist Church, this
city. He was prominently identified
with the Bantists In Tennessee, was
member of their state board and an
onthusiastic worker of Roger Williams
ebuilding movement. Nashville joins
Tennessee in her regret for losing
such an able young minister.
