THE NEGRO VOTER.
The temper of the Negro voter is be
ing made manifest to the republican
party at the North. There is less and
Jess disposition upon the part of the
voters to, blindly follow the party sim
ply because it was the party of Abra
ham Lincoln. Mr. Roosevelt's policy
in the Brownsville affair has cooled
the ardor of the brother in black for
the grand old party all over the coun
try. This coldness toward the party
Is being overworked though. For ex
ample, it is stated that the apathy of
the colored vote on account of the
Brownsville affair was the cause of the
defeat of the republican ticket in the
Baltimore municipal election this
week, This would be only too good
if it were but true. However, from
the weekly papers published in the
eHy, we glean the fact that the Ne
groes were dissatisfied on account of
the local conditions. There is no deny
ing, though, that there is a general
dissatisfaction with the republican
policies that would cause the loss of
several Northern states to the republi
can party were it not for the mouth
Ings of some of the Southern demo
crats whose alpha and omega is the
The South though always democrat
ic really has very little force in the
direction of democratic affairs and in
a like manner the Negro is or has been
an asset of the republican party. The
Negro is, really tired of the treatment
accorded hjm by the republicans, yet
he has not decided to choose, in pref
erence those panaceas offered by Ben
Tillman and his gang. At the next na
tional election, unless there is a radi
cal change in the affairs of the party,
theje will be a, larger number of inde
pendent voters and, stay-at-homes than
ever before since emancipation.
CHARITY BEQIXS AT HOME.
America has a great navy and some
efficient as well as bumptious officers.
These men of the sea who command
Uncle Sam's fighting fleet can be de
pended upon to look after the interests
of an American citizen when he comes
in contact with the municipal officers
of some second-class power. Some
times the officers are so officious as
to merit a scathing letter like that
sent by Governor Swettenham, of Ja
maica. But most of the time, our brave
admirals can be found doing their
duty unselfishly and with much eclat
like the incident which happened in
one of the Central American republics
General Davis, an employee of an
American fruit company, a sober, in
dustrious Negro from the States, fell
'n the clutches of the police in one of
'vilondurlan towns. He received a
drubbing similar to that frequently ad
ministered by some of the policemen
of Nashville when making arrests of
men charged of such heinous crimes
as vagrancy, and was left on the street
for dead. In less than an hour the
oificer in charge of the gunboat nearby,
flying the flag of our country, .was
made aware of the outrage and pro
ceeded to arrest all the police of the
town. Of course, our officer was right
and his actions will be approved by all
patriotic Americans. But wouldn't it
smack more of the Christian spirit of
which we boast as the bulwarks of our
government wouldn't it appear moru
consistent, if the whole Navy were
sent to some sections of this country
with orders to arrest a few of the po
licemen who beat or shoot up on the
slightest pretext the citizens? One
or two boats could be used with profit
In Nashville. If centralization of pow
er would bring about the curbing of
these lords of creation we hope the
day of a strong, centralized govern
ment at Washington is not far distant
We beg leave to ask our esteemed
contemporary, the Nashville . Globe
this question. When a person says a
girl is a 'peach,' what does he mean?
We have all kinds of peaches. Spring'
field (111.) Forum.
The Globe is not an authority on
slang phrases nor does its editor pose
as an expert in answering questions.
The Springfield young man, however,
possibly intends to convey the Idea
that he thinks the girl to be a delect
able feminine specimen of the genus
homo that appears extremely admira
ble to his paternal ancestor.
A Dickson man, an employee of the
N. C. & St. L. Ry., Is the patentee of a
device for stopping railroad cars at
the end of a track. The bumper is
said to be the best thing ever made
in this line. The colored man is 'still
giving proofs of his ability to con
struct things and we hope this man
will make a big hit with his inven
tion. Since we accepted the St. Luke's Her
ald's challenge for a beauty contest, it
seems that we have been cut off its
exchange list. If the Herald does not
care to put the F. F. V.'s on exhibition
it ought to "say so, shut its mouth and
leave it alone." If the Herald wants
to back out it can do so without drop
ping us from its exchange lists.
The baseball crank has come into
his own, and if Nashville continues to
win, he will forget all about the race
The Commencement orators are now
monarchs of all they survey.
CHARGES HIS WIFE SKIPPED
Chattanooga, Tenn. In a chancery
bill James Redmond, a white em
ploye of H. H. Thrasher & Co.,
charges that ' his wife has skipped
from the city with Negro mp.le cook
John Rice, alias Frank Brown. The
bill charges that the complainant and
his wife established a boarding house
and his wages and the funds all
amounting to about $1,000 were en
trusted to the wife, who put them in
a bank and he believes that his wife
drew out this money, but prays for
the court to go into the matter and
ascertain the facts concerning the
PROMINENT MEMPHIAN IN THE

Church of Memphis, reputed to be
the wealthiest Negro in Tennessee,
and a brother of Mrs. 'Mary Church

their efforts, and the League is des
tined to become powerful as well as

department of Walden University,

rium, before a large and appreciative
audience. Mr. Berry was assisted by
Misses Maud J. Roberts and Mabel
Scott, both very accomplished young
ladies. The program was highly entertaining.-

day Wednesday, the Tennessee
School for the Blind, on Tennessee
street, was favored with a piano re
cital by Miss Alice C. Simmons, who
is a member of the Junior music class

students enjoyed this rare treat to
the highest degree. Miss Simmons
played the following:

hearty encore from the students. The
characteristic of these pupils is that
they are all lovers of music and they
delight much in these recitals. The
rain kept quite a number away -who
had planned to attend, but an appre
ciative audience greeted the recital.

MAGNIFICENT SPRING FESTIVAL.
(Continued from Page One.)
Wednesday night the crowd at the
spring festival increased over the
previous nights, and the entertain
ment continued with unusual success.
Nothing has been more pleasing than
the loyalty shown on the part of the
members and the interest manifested
by visitors throughout. The register-
ng of the attendance has grown in
Thursday there was a special fea
ture attached to the festival. The
hotel waiters, under the management
of Mr. Young, took dinner. The la
dies had prepared a sumptuous repast
for them. It was served promptly at
three o'clock. Rev. Dr. Clark made
an excellent address just before din
ner was served, and in that command
ing way he further endeared him
self to the hearts of the vast audience
that was present to witness the occa
sion. Thursday night the entertainment
opened under the most promising cir
cumstances. The weather had
cleared away, and all day Thursday
the sun was shining beautifully,
which brought out an enormous
crowd. The management, of the fes
tival found it difficult to supply ample
refreshments as well as space to ac
commodate the visitors that were
present during the evening.
To-night there will be a special
program for the entertainment of all,
which winds up the twentieth annual
Spring Festival of the Mt. Olive Bap
tist Church. Judging from the re
ports of the officers and management,
several hundred dollars have been
cleared already and a full report Is
not yet available. A general good feel
ing and unity of work made the en
tertainments highly successful.
The Magnolia Sewing Circle met
last Monday, May 6, at the home of
Mrs. Simon Woods. A nice lot of
sewing was done and a very pleasant
time was had. Late In the evening
the hostess invited the guests In to
