WILL THE SHERIFF ACTT
The deputy sheriffs of Davidson Coun
ty can scent a Negro crap game twelve
miles in the country but seemingly
know or can find no evidence of bawdy
houses run by Negro women for whito
men. Sheriff Johns in his ante-election
promises said that he would play
no favorites in enforcing the law. He
put the lid on the Sunday saloon,
whether its owner operated a gilded
palace or a corner grog shop. Now
let him still further show his consist
ency by prodding his deputies into
closing these disreputable houses
where white men meet Negro women.
The conditions would not be permitted
for one hour were the racial equation
We do not ask that Sheriff Johns
put himself to the trouble of expos
ing the "respectable" men guilty of
things indicated in these columns last
week. It would be asking too much.
We fear that he would balk if he
found such things as are currently
reported to be true. But we do think
that if he will train the scenting fac
ulties of his deputies so that they can
detect social crimes within three miles
of the county court house with the
same accuracy as a crap game twelve
miles away, and will have these offi
cers gently remind the offenders (if
they find the the parties to the affair
are loo "respectable" to be arrasted for
consorting with Negro women), that
they are violating the law, a needed re
form will be accomplished peacably.
There is another Richmond in the
field. Another candidate placed be
fore the Connection as a successor to
Rev. W. D. Chappelle in the event that
reverend gentleman is elevated to the
bishopric by the A. M. E. Church. The
Morning News, of Hopkinsville, Ky.,
following the lead of its illustrious
contemporary, The Courier-Journal, of
Louisville, the editor of which brought
out and has been successful in keeping
him so, a dark horse for the democrat
ic presidential nomination, arises to
place a candidate for the consideration
of what he seems to consider the great
est political body among the, Negroes
in America,.the A. M. E. Church. Un
like the erudite Watterson, though, the
brilliant Brown does not keep his
horse in the dark. At the close he an
nounces as his candidate our fellow
townsman, the superintendent of ihe
big printing plant of the National Bap
tist Publishing Board and the business
manager of The Globe Publishing
Company, Mr. Dock A. Hart.
Mr. Hart is too well known in
church and business circles of this
city to need encomiums from us. He
has spent the major portion of his life
in this city and its environs. He has
!sen to his present commanding po-tttt,
si lion by sheer force of character, and
if ability for managing, large affairs
be taken into consideration, he is as
well fitted, if not better prepared to
fulfil the duties incumbent upon one
in such - a position than any other
member of the 0. M. E. Connection.
Knowing Mr. Hart's capabilities as
we do, and Avithout consulting his
wishes in the matter, we second hi3
nomination for the secretaryship of
the A. M. E. Church Sunday School
THE KENTUCKY CONVENTION.
The Taft boom had a reef taken in
its sail by the action of the Kentucky
State republican convention last week.
Though the Taft men claimed that
they were in control of the convention
they were unable to get a specific en
dorsement for their .man. They take
comfort in the fact, though, that the
convention declared for a man who
represented the Roosevelt policies.
Even this declaration was modified by
the amendment that it did not refer to
any certain man.
Taft is popular with the whites in
the South. Almost as popular since
the Brownsville incident, as Theodore
Roosevelt himself and it was to be
expected that the. federal office-holders
who are trying to keep in touch with
the White House, and have so frequent
ly declared that next to the President
himself Taft was their choice, would
have been able to swing this border
state into line for the Ohioan. But
Brownsville proved too great a load
for Peaceful Bill. Kentucky feared
the Negro vote.
Secretary Cortelyou has another
ace problem on his hands. Jhesa
Negro boys, with the effrontery of
their kind, continue to pass the civil
service examination with higher marks
than their white competitors and the
appointing powers not knowing their
color, continue to appoint them to po
sitions in the governmental service.
Another has broken into one of the
departments as a draughtsman. Two
in this one department within a year
was more than one of the clerks could
stand; so he started a race war. It is
a pity they took the colored boy off.
Cortelyou was a clerk at one time and
it will not be hard to guess what he
will do in the case.
Is it to laugh! Superintendent Web-',
ber, of the public schools, draws the
color line and the birth-place line in
recommending a teacher for the man
ual training department of the col
ored schools. The man selected, so
far as we know, is an excellent young
man and is capable of filling the po
sition. But the questions "where was
he born" and "what is his color''
should, of rights, had no consideration
in his selection. The only thine to
have been taken into consideration
was: Is he the best that can be se
cured for the money?
Foraker made a great speech at Wil
berforce last week. He urged his hear
ers, almost all of whom were colored,
not support any man or party that did
not come out fiat-footed against the ef
fort being made to abridge Negro suf
frage. It sounded like old times. But
how strange it seems to hear an Ohio
politician speak right out in meeting!
It seems so different from the McKin
ley's, Taft's and other soda water
statesmen from that state.
THE LAST CHANCE.

tional Union will hold its last meet

Prof. Allen, principal of the Lin

was seen by a Globe reporter as he
alighted from a St. Louis train. He was
looking well, and when approached by
the Globe man at first did not seem to
remember him, notwithstanding they
met in Savannah, Ga., last July. When
asked his destination he stated that
he was just making a general tour
southward, after havijjg had a suc
cessful year at the school in Missouri
He contemplated visiting many cities
in Georgia, his native state. He did
not know whether he would return
via Nashville or not, but wanted to
if possible. He asked about Walden
University, Fisk University and the
possibilities of the rebuilding of Rog
or Williams. Ashe and the Globe man
stood on the Broadway viadua

PRESENTATION AT LEA AVENUE
Sunday ' morning at Lea Avenue
Church little Misses Lillian Cooper
and Ethel M. Ferrell were awarded
prizes for selling a large number
of tickets for the entertainment
given recently. Miss Cooper really
won the prize, but the pastor gave the
little Ferrell girl a little necklace
just like the one the other little girl
won. This was done because little
Ethel sold such a large number, and
also to encourage her. The Reds
and Blues, two clubs of the church,
presented the church Sunday morning
with a purse of $G5.G0, which was
raised at their' last entertainment.
These same clubs .are planning to
have another entertainment on the
fourth Monday night of next month.
They hope to raise enough to pay the
church entirely out of debt so it can
be dedicated in August, on the anni
versary of the beginning of the pas
torate of Rev. Preston Taylor.
