A DESERVED REBUKE.
The colored press of the country
express general satisfaction that Har
ry C. Smith, of the Cleveland Gazette,
won out in his fight against Theodore
Burton, the administration's candidate
for Mayor.- The victory of Tom John
son Is welcomed not so much because
Tom is a better man than Burton, but
because the election will probably
eliminate the leader of opposition to
Foraker in the most populous city In
Ohio. In going outside of the party
to rebuke Roosevelt for his actions in
the Brownsville affair the Negro
-voters of Cleveland have done a cred
itable deed. "Justice must be done
those discharged black soldiers"
seemed to have been their slogan and
they have won out. They have won
more than the local fight for they
served notice that the Negro of the
North will not prove traitor to a man
who in the face of opposition from the
mo'st powerful man in his party dared
to speak in behalf of and fight for jus
tice to members of our race.

Aas been dissolved, Mr. Fortune re--ceivlng,

the price he received shows the value
of a well-established newspaper. The
$7,000, unless Uncle Tom was terribly
in debt to The Age Co., must represent
a minority of the stock or there would
have been no change in the editorship
of The Age. Be that as it may, though,
the whole journalistic world feels an

The article in last week's Globe
from the Independent, headed, "The
Negro and Justice," is from a northern
white woman now residing in the
South, iler views as to the dangers
which colored women are forced to
face in some of the Southern homes
when employed as servants, are in line
with those expressed by Mrs. Mary
''lunch Terrell. This article, we might
add, was originally published before
Mrs. Terrell made the speech in Battle
(.'reek, Mich., which - attracted such
Tillman, speaking in Illinois, voiced
the opinion that Speaker Cannon
would head the republican ticket next
year, while the democratic honor
would go to Bryan. Tillman is not
above giving taffy to the people of
Cannon's home state. And, too, It was
one time that he got into the-newspapers
without mentioning his favorite
Mayor Brown, as a sworn official,
has no other alternative than to en
force all laws on the statute books, if
he respects his oath; consequently,
he should not be blamed for the en
forcement of the Sunday closing laws.
The putting on of the lid last Sunday
calls attention to some -of the laws
in the city code which should be re
pealed. The South wants a native son as the
democratic candidate for Presdent,
but we are of the opinion that its
wishes will not be respected. The
South is wedded to the democratic
party .like the Negro is to the republi
can party. Each may cuss and dis
cuss before the nomination, but when
election time comes they vote in the
same old way.
One of the speakers at the meeting
Wednesday night, held for the purpose
of organizing a colored commercial
organization, made an excellent sug
gestion when he urged upon the busi
ness and professional men of the race
to come more closely in contact with
the people. The business man who
eypects to succeed and to be of service
to his race, must be to some extent a

passing of the old ex-slaves is but the

of the old ex-slaves given as mere

grow stale, palling on the public

when they pass awav. But it. is nn dis

to mane a wicked, vicious flinsr

constant attempts to show that tho
old ex-slaves possess virtues of which
their children are devoid. The writ-

are gross misrepresentations. But to
Keep tne flames burning they pile on
the fuel even at the expense of the
dead. In what way is the past genera
tion superior to tho present? To
show that men who lived out the most
impressionable period of their lives
as slaves are superior to free men
with immeasurable advantages, Is an
Impossible task. The newspaper's
encomiums, so lavishly bestowed upon
the disappearing ex-slaves of the "old
school," as they term it, are not so
much of respect for. them as hateful
malice toward their children of the
new school with opportunities which
are being utilized.
THE FLEUR-DE-LIS ART CLUB.
The beautiful home of Mrs. J. West
Bostic, was the scene of a jovial group
or club ladies Thursday, October 31.
Those present were Mesdames Sutton
Griggs, A. M. Townsend, II. A. Cam
eron, J. W. Bostic, W. It. Baker, S. P.
Harris, D. A. Hart, C. O. Hadley, R.
P. Moore, A. G. Price, W. B. Vassar,
with Mesdames A. N. Johnson, Lewis
and Hughes as guests of honor. The
usual method of voting on names was
dispensed with and before the arrival
of the guests, the club unanimously
elected Mesdames Lewis and Johnson
members of the club by acclamation.
Then the program as announced at
the previous meeting was carried out.
The solo by Mrs. Cameron was ren
dered beautifully. Her sweet voice
thrilled the very soul and delighted
her hearers. Next came a paper on
"Good Housekeeping" by Mrs. Har
ris, which was full of excellent
thought and showed that the writeir
knew how and where to clean and
beautify a house.
The club requested Mrs. Harris to
permit this most excellent article to'
be printed in each of our colored pa
pers along with other notes of F. D. L.
A. Club, so that more housekeepers
may read and be benefited. All the
while the ladies were plying their
needles, each one striving to do more
and better work this club year than
ever before. A short, interesting talk
was also made by Mrs. Lewis.
At this point the hostess welcomed
the ladies into the dining room, where
was found a cheerful color scheme
of yellow and white prevailing. The
ladies enjoyed the daintily prepared
four-course menu highly and bidding
the charming hostess and each other
a cheery good-bye, departed to meet
with Mm H. A. Cameron, 1025 Eight
eenth avenue, North, November 14,
at 3 p. ra., where Mrs. "Hart will ren
der a solo, and Mrs. Baker will read
a paper, "The Nineteenth Century
Woman." The Query Box will also
be inaction at the next meeting.
The Willing Workers' Club of Kavne
Avenue Baptist Church are certainly
a busy lot of people. They meet regu
larly every Monday night and are high
ly entertained bv some of its mem-
bers. On Monday, November the 11th
tney met at the residence of Mrs. Fred
Johnson. After the regular business
routine was transacted an aDnetizlnz
repast was served, consisting of ices.
cake, etc. Those present were Prof.
A. L. Anderson, President. Mrs.
William Amos, Mr. and Mrs. Pe
ter Sims, Jr., Mr. and Mrs. Fred
Johnson, Rev. J. C. Lott, Mrs. Janie
Brown, Mrs. Colletta Turnbow, Mrs.
.lames Gentry, Mr. and Mrs. Gaiter,
Misses Mamie and Fannie Johnson,
Drs. Stoift and Harris. At the close
Mrs. Fred Johnson sang a solo that
pleased all present. The next meeting
will be held at the home of Mr. P. A.
Sims, 91G Division street.

INJURED BY A FALL.
Mr. Adam Reed sustained a serious
injury Thursday about noon. He was
assisting in moving a piano at the cor
ner of Church and High streets. Those
moving the instrument lost control of
it in some way, and Mr. Reed being
beneath the stairway, the piano fell
on his head, causing what is thought
at the time of going to press con
tusion of the brain. He was immedi
ately taken to the City Hospital, where
his wounds are being attended. Some
doubt is entertained as to his recov
ery. Much excitement prevailed in
the vicinity of the accident. The pa
tient was resting well Thursday even

Coach Giles left Thursday morning

with the mountain boys to settle the
dispute as to which is entitled to the
honor of supremacy on the 1907 grid
Last year Knoxville defeated Fisk
on her own campus, but it was all luck
or rather carelessness on the part of
Fisk players. True Knoxville had a
good team, but it is also true that Fisk
had a better team. Knoxville's strength
is not known in local quarters this
year, and the same may be said of
Fisk, but their showing against Atlan
ta Baptist College, which has practical
ly the same team this year as last,
shows conclusively that Coach Giles
has developed a team out of practical
ly new material that will make any of
The boys are determined to defeat
Knoxville, who are equally as deter
mined to win from Fisk. So a great
game will be played in the Mountain
ALLISON GETS HIS LEG BROKEN.
While participating in a practice
foot-ball game of the Meharry team,
Mr. Guy Allison had one of his legs
broken. The accident occurred Wed
nesday afternoon.. This removes for the
season one of the strongest players on
the Meharry team. Allison was the
strong right half and had made good
more than once. It was he that made
the sensational run last season for 35
yards for a touchdown against Fisk
University. The team will feel his ab
sence very keenly, and may tend to
weaken them in Saturday's game. On
Thursday it was reported that Allison
is resting easy. Dr. F. A. Stewart,
the attending physician, entertains no
serious results. Allison is rooming on
