NEWS OF STATE, j j j
The interest aroused over the elec
tion in Kentucky last week by many
of the citizens of this place is but a
gentle reminder to those persons eligi
ble to vote that some months ago the
charter of Clarksville. was changed
and election for municipal offices post
poned until some time next year. As
the new year is scarcely two months
away, it becomes necessary for colored
electors and leaders true and tried,
to consider ways and means by which
the election of a colored representa
tive to the city council will be assured.
For many' years Afro-American citi
zenship has had such an official, but
the change of the charter changes the
mode of election of aldermen from
the wards to-the city-at-large, making
the election uncertain.
Guthrie, Ky., Clarksville's next door
neighbor, will take unto itself the dry
pledge and henceforth be found on the
"water wagon" after next Saturday,
the sixteenth. Many Clarksvillians
w ill no doubt look askance, as a con
stant migration to the above named
place has been in vogue since last
July. It is needless, however, to call
the attention of those with bibulous
desires that Hopkinsville is still on
November the month with days
dark, cold and, dreary; rains and
winds never weary comes forth in
this community as a rival to June for
prospective brides. Announcements
unauthorized have it that the central
portion of the city, flanked both by
the East End on one side, and "Gal
lus Hollow" the other, will produce
surprises in this hymeneal line. One
of the prospective benedicts is well
known in Nashville, but the others
have not yet had our acquaintance.
Recalling the phrase "two as one"
will exactly fit the business adven
ture of Ed. Broadus, not in the mari
tal sense, but in the contraction of
his two shining parlors into one. Mr.
Broadus has for some time conducted
two establishments and enjoyed good
business, but the dryness of the city,
the weather, and the closeness of the
money marts caused many of his pa
trons to shine their own shoes.
Monetary matters in Clarksville no
doubt are but a counterpart of what
is happening all over the United States.
Salaries are being paid in checks and
(tearing house certificates, which are

THE MAN FROM BUFFALO
Says Nashville and the South Need
Men with Backbone to Supply the
Shoestrings They Now Have.
As a result of a news item appearing
n the Nashville Globe of a few issues ,
ago, one or tne close observers ot the
conditions in the South, and especial
ly the news columns of two of Nash
ville's leading papers, makes some
comment upon the attitude of the Ne
gro towards protecting the innocent
children and our women. The let
ter was received by a member of the
Globe force, being addressed to . Mr.
Henry A. Boyd, and conies from the
pen of a very energetic Buffalonian in
the person of Mr. C. A. Dickson, who
has identified himself with some of
Nashville's business enterprises, yet
he has never visited the South, but is
very much impressed with some of the
movements begun down here and in
some of the men who have visited his
section of the country. In the letter,
which was written during the month
of October, Mr. Dickson deplores the
seeming weakness on the part of the
Negro men of the South in upholding
law and order.
Mr. Dickerson said in part, "In the
Globe, the article about the white rape
fiend, makes my blood boil. I under
stand there are about 15,000 Negroes
in Nashville and not one has the cour
age or manhood to resent the rape.
By the article it appears the fiend is
known and is still at liberty. What
manner of man is the child's father
that he does not have the white man
arrested?" lie continues at length
in this way, but makes one mistakes
in the number of Negroes dwelling in
Greater Nashville by about 30,000,
