THE NASHVILLE GLOBE, FRIDAY, MAY 3, 1307.
Ernest Howell, of Alabama, Suffering
With Tuberculosis in Davidson
To be Incarcerated in jail is bad
enousa; but when a man is there, and
failing health overtakes him the case
becomes pitiful. It looks to those
who have seen Ernest Howell that In
all probability ha will never recover.
The man Is from Alabama and Is now
confined in the jail under sentence of
death. His condition, appears criti
cal, as he is apparently In the last
stages of consumption, and In the
opinion of those who understand the
disease, he will never reach the scaf
fold. Howell was found guilty of the mur
der of Mr. Charles Rowland, the old
carpenter whose body was found some
months ago In the outskirts of the
city, near the Glendale car route, a
full account of the affair being pub
lished in The Globe at the time. It
was reported that his conviction was
brought about through the .confession
he made at the time of his arrest.
Howell is under indictment for the
perpetration of other crimes. 'He is
accused of committing an assault op. a
South Nashville men. Btefore com
ing to this city he was arrested in
Alabama on a charge of attempted as
sault, but broke jail and made his es
cape. Had he been apprehended, be
yond a doubt he would have been
taken charge of by a mpb of "best
citizens," and executed without trial
by judge or Jury.
Howell is a young man, probably
about 25 years of age. In case he
pulls through, as it looks now, there
is a chance that he will get his case
reversed before the Supreme Court.
His attorneys Messrs. Mayfield and
Ewing, are working hard in the
PEARL HIGH SCHOOL NOTES.
The Pearl Washintgonians met
more than their match in the baseball
game last' Saturday on Fisk Campus.
When the smoke of battle had cleared
away, the score board read: Fisk 18.
Pearl 5. Many reasons were assigned
for such an inglorious defeat and the
game has been played over again in
conversation and discussion in the
school yard. The High School fac
ulty have advised the boys to take
their medicine like heroes, to quit of
ferlng excuses and to quit criticising
those who made errors, and to work
the harder for victory next time.
The High School team has been
challenged for a game by the Turner
Normal and Industrial boys of Shelby-
ville.Tenn. If arrangements are per
fected, quite a crowd will accompany
the team to the capital city of Bedford
Quite a radical change will take
place on the first floor of Pearl School
during the summer. Your reporter
has it from good authority that a par
tltion will be run through the hall, di
viding it into two unequal parts. 'The
larger part will be used as a hall for
the seventh and eighth grade pupils
from all over the city. The smaller
part will be used to enlarge the two
recitation rooms In the rear, which
will be converted into working rooms
for the Manual Training Department
Pearl High School will then be the
manual training center for Negro
children. All the high grades will be
centered here. This will of necessity
cause an almost complete change in
the teaching force of the first floor, as
It now stands. Primary teachers and
primary children must be provided
for elsewhere. The two new Negro
schools with proper transfers will in
all probability take care of both.
Something of a "breeze" was stirred
up among certain elements of the
teaching fraternity last week, because
their names were not given as deserv
ing special mention for meritorious
work. The Globe man's scalp was
in danger. Your reporter has tried
to be just and has recorded his opin
ion without fear or favor. It gives
him pleasure now to say that the
work exhibited this week showed
greater excellence than any previous
week; but among all the excellent
specimens, those of Miss Lizzie Fox
took the premium. She appears to
have splendid talent along the line of
, basket-making. Mr. J. E. Miller was
: a very close second. Next week the
ladies will take up sewing and the
, men mechanical drawing.
Mr. F. G. Smith, the principal
made a flying trip to Winchester
Tenn., last Saturday, where he was
the guest of Mr. and Mrs. T. W. Trigg
Mrs. Trigg was formerly a member

The commencement exercises of
Walden University began Wednesday

day , May 9. This has been a very sue
cessful year at the University, and the
President and faculty feel highly
elated over the success attained. The
classes in all departments have taken
ep interest in their studies and as
result good marks have been the
rule rather than the exception. The
attendance has been unusually large
and the work as a whole shows con
clusively that the young Negroes are
seekers after knowledge. Following
