THE NASHVILLE CLOBE. FRIDAY, AUGUST 1G, 1307.
New Styles Cheap and Endurable.
Comfort and Beauty Combined.
UNTIL the large number of people who are never seen in churches can be assured that every
church in this vicinity will have a set of seats that will be clean, comfortable and inviting,
they will not be seen inside a church. Many churches will supply this long-felt want if
they could do so at prices and on terms within their reach, thus increasing their attendance, draw
ing on the unusually large number of people who do not attend the churches, and which would evi
dently result in every service being crowded. A barrier has been in the way in the form of high,
prices, shoddy goods nnd no terms. This barrier has been removed by the Church Supply Depart
ment of the National llaptist Publishing Board, which has presented the new style church seat (its
own creation and its own make.). These seats are constructed of the best grade of hardwood.
They are built by the best skilled mechanics and have proven to hi the most comfortable ever of
fered at the prices. The terms on which they can be purchased are so easy that any church, re
gardless of its' financial condition, can secure a set of these by a small cash payment, have the seats
installed and pay the remainder in monthly or quarterly payments to suit their own financial con
dition. How long, with such inviting inducements offered, will it be, before every church in and
about Nashville will get a set of seats? References can be given to the Nashville churches by re
ferring them to Rev. L. Kirkpatrick, pastor of the, St. John Baptist Church, Pearl St.; Rev. J L
Harding, pastor of the North Third Avenue Baptist Church, both of whom h-ve seated with new
style church seats; Rev. G. B. Taylor, pastor of the Second Baptist Church, corner Stevens and De
luge Sts.; Rev. Win. Ilaynes, pastor of Sylvan Street Church, Shelby Avenue, who have installed the
church pews. & fc J u & & tf &

Fatal Fight in a Saloon on Broadway.
William Green was fatally stabbed
by John II. Hyde in Dortch's saloon.
11!) Broadway, last Saturday night.
The resort was packed with men who
were quietly enjoying themselves.
Some say that Hyde approached
Crorn. who was sitting at a table, and
immediately the men grappled and
fell to the floor. Hyde arose and left
the place, going toward Second av
enue. Green remained In the saloon
some five or ten minutes and left. He
fell dead at the corner of Broadway
and Second avenue. It was found
that he had been badly wounded by a
knife thrust, the blade entering the
body in close proximity to the heart.
The murdered man was about thirty
years old and his home was at 201
fifth avenue, South. The alleged
murderer Is between 20 and 25 years
of age and lives S28 Twelfth avenue,
Hyde gave himself' up. to the police
at the station house about 8 o'clock
Sunday night. On Monday morning
he was arraigned in the City Court
on the charge of murder and pleaded
guilty. Judge Baker bound him over
to the Criminal Court.
Rachel Battle, a girl about 12 years
old, was badly hurt on Monday morn
ing while passing the store of the O.
K. Houek Piano Company. It appears
that a pait of one of the heavy plate
glacs windows fell and struck the arm
of the girl. She was carried to a pri
vate infirmary, where her wounds re
ceived the attention of the physicians
in charge. It is stated that she will
never be able to use the arm again.
The child's parents are in the employ
of Finley Dorris, the funeral director.
OFFICER SHOOTS MAN.
On Saturday night there was in
t nse excitement at the western ap
proach to the Church street viaduct.
Upon investigation a representative ol
the Globe learned that a policeman
named Alley had shot Jordan
in the house of Bessie Piper in Com
er's alley, a thoroughfare west of Elev
enth avenue, between Church and
Grundy streets. The officers went to
the house to arrest Jordan on a charge
of being disorderly, and he says that
the man, who was lying on a bed
arose and came toward him with a
knife in his hand. The officer, ac
cording to his story, fired in self-defense,
the bullet entering the body
just below the heart. The unfortu
nate man was taken to the City Hos
uial and received careful attention at
.hat place. Wednesday afternoon the
1 hysician in charge of the case in
foimed the Globe office that Jordan
was "resting easy." Jordan's version
of the affair remains untold.
Negroes have found out that the
only way to get a financial standing
and rating in the commercial world
will be to open their own financial
"oncerns, and throw themselves into
the- money market, thereby getting an
.nsiglit on the advance and decline in
this almighty dollar question. It will
be noted with much satisfaction, and
possibly with a degree of pleasure,
that but few cities in the South are
without a Negro bank. Some of them
have two well established banks, said
1 well informed gentleman to a Globe
representative. When asked how
rany banks there were owned and
operated by Negroes in the United
States, he said that he thought there
were thirty-five, but that his memory
was not very clear. If is known, how
ever, said he, that they are being or
ganized alivost every month. The
latest and possibly one of the strong
'st in the South is the Southern Bank
at Jackson, Miss., of which the Bank
crs' Register states has a paid up cap
ital of $,r0,000. They have only been
open since September. 190G. There is
another bank in Jackson known as the
Ameiican Bank & Trust Co.
Birmingham, Ala., also enjoys the
distinction of having two banks. The
People's Banking Company of which
W. L. Lauderdale is the president,
and which institution is doing a re
'inrl able business, and the Alabama
Penny Savings Bank, of which W. R.
Vttiford has the distinction of being
i tie oldest, bank president in point of
service in the race.
Then there are two banks at Vicks
burg, Miss., and it is in this place that
Nashville is represented, in the person
of T. G. Ewing, Jr., who is cashier of
the Union Savings Bank. The Lin
coln Savings Bank is the name of the
other batik at Vicksburg. It is as
tonishing to see that in the largest
Mars it is impossible for the Negroes
to get close enough together with their
Money s to open tUese institutions.
There is uot a Negro bank in Mont
;on cry, Mobile or New Orleans, yet
i .lier of these cities could support one
ith rase. The smaller places seem
to have the advantage. For instance,
'tfssemer, is preparing to open a bank
v.-Ith a ea- ital stock of $25,000. One
half of this amount is already sub
scribed. The movement is under the
'Mnction of Mr. W. B. Smith, Dr. W.
II. Coleman and others prominently
connected there. That they will sue
- ced is a foregone conclusion, as
these men promise to do their utter
most and with the confidence of the
-eople they already have, success is
The bank at Memphjs is enjoying
wonderful prosperity, while the One
Cent Savings Bank of this city has al
ready established and maintains the
greatest standing ever attained by an
institution In so short a time. But
they can not continue to grow unless
the representative men and Negro or
ganizations will patronize them. The
last comptroller's report of the One
Cent Savings Bank showed .that the
same healthy condition and marked in
crease noticeable in the December re
port, was apparent in every respect.
It is hoped that the Negro Bankers
Association, organized recenty, a3 a re
sult of the Negro Business League,
will stir up the business interests
along this line.
