cation, but as an evidence 01 goou wu.
Nashville has a new park for the
colored people. If one-half the reports
brought back by those who have vis
iied the resort be true, then it were
better that the venture had never been
conceived. The orgies reported as be
ing enacted at Olympic Park and on
the boats en route make Black Bottom
appear decent when compared with
the former place.
Some of those who visited the place
last Sunday state that on the grounds
were between fifty and sixty white
men, some of whom had so little respect
for the patrons of the place as to be in
a semi-intoxicated state. Others, while
not drunk, were on the road to intoxi
cation, for they freely and without
any attempt at secrecy, opened bottles
of beer and partook thereof. On the
boat en route to the park, it is said
that the patrons were given an exhi
bition of social equality a white man
dancing with a woman of our race.
This continued, so it is stated, until a
band of resolute colored men threat
ened to throw the captain of the boat
and every white man upon it, in the
river, if the couple did not cease their
disgraceful conduct. Other familiar
ities upon the part of flippant white
men have also been reported.
If Olympic Park is a resort for the
colored people, then these booze-drinking,
or any other class of white men,
ought to be conspicuous by their ab
sence. We have no desire for "social
equality" and especially is this true
of that "social equality" by which flip
pant white men associate or attempt
to associate with colored women. An
other feature of the park equally ob
jectionable, is the Sunday beer-drinking.
We are not so puritanical as to think
that a park should be conducted with
out amusements nor are we opposed
to such amusements being opened on
Sunday, the only day in the week the
majority of those to whom a park is a
godsend, can take some recreation
We rather welcome their opening on
Sunday. But we do think that the
Sabbath should not be desecrated with
exhibitions containing indecent dances
and other vulgarities.
If the owners of Olympic Park are
conducting a "social equality" park
they ought to advertise it as such and
so conduct it. Otherwise no white
men should be permitted to hang
around and make the place a Sunday
rendezvous for beer-drinkers. If the
resort is not to be a "hullabaloo" then
all the indecencies reported from the
place should be eleminated.
THE SAN FRANCISCO CASE.
The federal government which finds
itself unable to investigate the most
flagrant violations of law in different
parts of the country Vwhen the rights
cf it? Hrf7Pi have lset violated cr
trial by jury denied, moves with, an i
alacrity that is surprising . when the
Japanese government calls its , atten
tion to the fact that the people of San
Francisco, giving vent to their pent-up
hatred of things Japanese, had de
stroyed a restaurant belonging to a
native cf Japan.
The protest of the Japanese Govern
ment has been described as a tempest
in a teapot. Perhaps it is, but the
promptitude with which an investiga
tion of the incident was asked, shows
that the government at Tokio will not
tamely submit to any persecutions of
its citizens. It shows further, that it
is aware of the local prejudice along
the Pacific slope and intends to protect
its citizens. Japan is young as a
world power, but the unmerciful drub
bing which she gave the Russians
bas caused other powers to sit up and
take notice when she speaks.
The Senate Committee conducting
the Brownsville investigation has ad
journed until June 4. The experts
who were before the committee this
week swore that there was a marked
difference between the bullets fired by
a Springfield rifle and those fired by
a, Krag-Jorgensen rifle, but when two
cartridges, one from each rifle, were
presented for their examination, each
expert picked the Krag bullet for that
of a Springfield. Foraker is making
it appear that these experts are ex'
perts only for the purpose of vindi;
eating Roosevelt's action.

WILL ATTEND THE BEREA COM
It Is learned that Dr. James ttnnrt
pastor of the Howard Chapel, will
leave Wednesday to attend the. annual
commencement exercises of the. Berea
College. Dr. Bond is the onlv Npcrr.
member of the Board of Trustees of,
this school, which has been for timHv
a half century one of the few srhnnia
in the South doing , co-educational
work between white and Negroes, but
which the state of Kentucky by re,
cent legislative enactment prohibited
tneir continuing. After the mm
mencement exercises, are. over the
board, meeting will be held and th
matter of establishing a branch for
tne colored department will be
up for consideration. It is rumored
that it has been Dracticallv tefMvi
to establish this branch within the
siaie or Kentucky. The effort that
was once put forth to unite the ml
ored department with Fisk University
was or no avail, hence Kentucky wil)
sun count this new school as one o
its many educational institutions.
CHILDREN'S DAY CELEBRATION,
In looking up participants to take
part In the coming Children's Day
celebration that is beine arranzed for
June 9, to take place at beautiful
Greenwood Park,, Manager Boyd has
succeeded in resurrecting or in other
words, getting together thirty-one
Baptist Sunday schools, most all of
which have 'signified their willingness
to participate in such a celebration,
him in his efforts to make, the cele
bration a success. '
The matter as to conveyance has
been, disposed of. Each Sunday
school will go to Greenwood in their
own conveyances and will ail unite at
the Park,' taking part in the special
program being prepared. It was at
first only estimated that there were
twenty-five Baptist Sunday schools.
The finding of six more makes the
saying true that "Negro Baptists are
hardly ever properly counted." No
census enumerator has ever been able
to, find out really how many Negro
Baptists there are in the United'
States. They were counted in 1906. to
the number of 2,300,000, but in this
the enumerators declare they missed
hundreds of thousands. Mr. Edward
E. Cooper, of the department of Com
merce and Labor, was the last to.
make an effort to get their number,
and before going back to Washington
he was heard to say. in Nashville that
truly the Baptists must be something
like the number John ' saw, ; At any
rate most of the Baptist children in
Nashville and their friends will make
ai display of their strength at Green
wood Park, Children's Day, June 9,
1907, in one grand united celebration

On last Tuesday evening, a bevy
of young ladles met at the residence
of Miss Georgia A. Bradford, 132
Fourteenth avenue, North, by request.
The object of the. meeting was briefly
stated by Miss Bessie Li Martin. - She
said: "It had been, in the minds of
several of our friends that It would
add to the, pleasure, of the ladles oj
the city If they, had. a club In which
they .could assemble,, and engage, from
time to time in entertainments of
some nature. It has been suggested
by some that , nothing more befitting
could be organized, . and- we have
called you here this evening, believing
that such a move woqld meet your ap
proval." AH present entered heartily

consideration and, the Idea, s'eeav?dtd
