A uolice officer Monday arrested and
took from a room in a hoarding house.
520' Third avenue, North, run, it is
said, by one Chancy Cains, better
Known in the locality as "Miss" or
"Aunt Chaney," a white man and Ne
gro woman who were there on a socia.;
equality basis. The officer took them
put the rear way to Linck's alley and
uu it around to the Dolice station. It
must, have been hard for these .two
lovers of opposite races to have to' go
along the public streets in each other s
society as prisoners, escorted by1 an ac
commodating officer, whose ethica
ideas of "social equality" Were differ
eut to theirs. ' Their predicament was
an unenviable one. attracting the at
tention of a number of people, colored
and white, hut there was no help tor it
They were deserving candidates for
prison, and to prison, these congema
' loveis went: but it may "" safely b
taken for granted that all of their
love dreams had vanished with te ap
pearance upon the scene of the oificer.
The above affair happened in' the
morning and another one similar oc
curred in the early evening hours.
This pair were escorted by two police
' office! s, one held fast to the waist
band of the white rascal's pants and
the other saw to the safe escort of the
Negro woman. In this wise the pro
cession marched up Jo Johnston ave
nue and around to the city prison.
The degenerate white reprobates,
taking all conditions into considera
tion, are lower than their dusky para
mours whose environments and ad
vantages in life have been less favor
able. White men who seek the so
. ciety of Negro women are immoral
scoundrels by deliberate and 'premedi
tated choice, while most of their dark
lovers are the product, so to speak, of
the gutter and unsavory environments
over which they had no control.
While no . argument is being made
here :' in extenuation of Negro women
who are guilty of hobnobbing with
white men, yet it is an obvious and
patent fact that of these -immoral dere
licts the white men are the lowest.
The later have had every advantage
of mirage, education, law and liberty,
while the former are the children of
parents whose "immediate parents
were chained down without any op
. portunitics under the burdens of a
hard and cruel bondage.
White men who proclaim their su
periority and their repugnance to "so
cial equality" from the house top, and
then crawl down and make a bee line
to some supposedly safe and secret re
treat where they, like gay Lotharos,
revel in the charms and pay court to
their darkskinned lovers, are the low
est, meanest and dirtiest hypocrites
outside the confines of hell. These
aie the villians who would come
gleaming' hot from their dens of
shame to join a mob, when if they had
a thousand lives and there were a
thousand ropes and a thousand pairs
of honest hands to string them up,
they would still be in debt to Justice

Gold medal for Christian doctrine

Father Bryant addressed the audi
ence with a short address but full of
logic. He said for the school to be a
success the parents should heartily co
operate with the , teachers and give
their children a home Christian train
ing, for without the assistance of the
parents the school "would not bo very
much. He said they had met with
much oppression but by the help of
the Almighty they meant to succeed.
"This is only our beginning," he said,
"but you all have been highly enter
tained by these girls and. boys and,
and we should feel proud of her who
has her whole soul in the work.
Though across the ocean, her heart is
with us to-night. I had a letter from
her and she asked about the com
mencement, and said God had made
mankind to enjoy all the good things
of life regardless of color." Father
Bryant told the young ladies he would
award a gold medal to the young lady
next year who was the best cook or
seamstress. He told the class no mat

their very best if they desired to suc
