and, worse than all, criticised by a
number of our own Negro Baptists, I,
hope, sir, that you will not remember'
it, and so far my own brethren are
concerned, I believe their criticism
was sincere, for they had been told
that there was a Negro in the wood-,
"I think', siivsince knowing you soi
well, that you simply prayed for them:
as Stephen did his persecutors, say-;
ing, 'Father, forgive them, for they
know not what they say.'
"But, sir, 1 want to step from that
day to this day, and tell yon that you
sowed in better soil, and better seed'
than you .were possibly aware that
you were sowing. From that little be
ginning eleven years ago I have In
vited you here to see a plant located
on four large lots, six brick buildings,
four of which -we have erected with
our own hands. I shall not discuss
the first cost of these, for it was not
more, perhaps, than $25,000. But I
tell you, sir, that a wealthy syndicate
of Tennessee has asked me a third
time if our Board would consider a
cash proposition of surrendering our
entire real estate and buildings for
$50,000, which proposition I have not
even so much as laid before our Board,
for they would only laugh and say,
Tliis properCy is not for sale.'
'1 tell you, sir, that we have recent
ly taken stock,, and made out an item
ized inventory, which shows our stock
and machinery are invoiced at. $200,
000. 1 Hence from that little beginning
tne plates tnat you mrnisneu us,
the advice and encouragement that
you gave us eleven years ago,, took
root, sprang up and has grow n to a
riant that must stand valued in the
market to-day at more than $250, uOo.
'As a small token of our apprecia
tion, or pci haps 1 had better say, as
an attempt to convey to you some of
the gracious appreciation for allowing
u-1, the thin 1,700,000 Negro Baptists,
but now 2, 5011, (.)()(,) Negro Baptists, and,
if possible, in your declining days to
give to you the assurance lhat you have
to-day move innocent Negro children
asking blessings upon you and you
successors; more poor, yet proud and
ambitious Negro Baptist honoring the
name of J. M. Frost and his succes
sors, than any other one man in
Ameiica; to serve as a memory or a
sign, I to-day present to you this
e' eny woo I, gold headed cane. Sir, this
ebony wood will remind you that two
million Negro Baptists honor' the
name and appreciate the acts of J. M
Fiost and his associates.
"Tho gold upon this cane, sir, is not
presented to you for the intrinsic
value of gold, but because it is .the
purest 'metal known to civilization;
we desire that this. shall serve to re
fresh your memory that the hearts of
Ngro Baptists, and the gratitude
there in to you, is as pure as the gold
that, covers the surface of this cane
"You will notice, again, sir, that the
knob upon the top of this cane iH
round; that is, it is endless. The true
appreciation and the gratitude of the
two million Negro Baptists are as end
l' ss and as boundless as the circle that
forms the h- ad of this cane.
"We have had simply engraved upon
flie head of this cane five words
'National Baptist Pnhlishing Board
1 s;G. These hve words, sir. represent
five million piople (two million Negro
Baptists and three million followers)
Winn you shall at Figure examine this
engraving, do not think of the little
llvit of sp brick buildingv, the dozrn
or so printing presses, the binding ma
chinery, the boilers, steam engines, the
el-etric liar.t, stereotyping, the en
graving.-etc., .which are in them, but
think of, their meaning and read it
from bottom towards t he top, from
light towards the left, and you will
read, '1K!C, Board, Publishing, Baptist.
"We use th" won! 'Board' here, sir,
to represent n Christian organization.
We use tho word 'Publishing' to tell
'bat. this organisation is spreading the
glad tidings of a resurrected Christ

"We use ho word 'Baptist' to tell

After the presentation speech by Dr.
Boyd, Rev. Dr. J. M. Frost arose; sur
prised, bewildered and amazed, as he
did not know, until Dr. Boyd pulled
the beautifui ebony caae from the
look-case above his head, what was'
really taking place.- There was noth
ing in the first part of the speech that
would intimate what would occur; and
not until the cane was really being
presented did he realize that he was
the honoree of the occasion. Notwith
standing he had been startled and con
fused by this well-laid surprise, he ral
lied and his speech was a master
piece. He began it by confessing that
he did not know what to say. which
proved just to the reverse. He did
know what to say, and he said it with
the earnestness of purpose, and with
that true ring of sincerity that has
ver' been characteristic of him to
wards this institution and its man-
ement. He delivered the most time
ly, the most appropriate and the most
instructive response in accepting the
cane that has ever been heard in these
six years that the institution has been
conducting these exercises.
A beautiful part of his speech was
that while the work of the institution
and its great progress was due to the
management of Dr. Boyd, that its Suc
cess now and In the future depended
first upon the support by his constitu
ents; second, upon each employee per
forming his or her duty. In other
words, that the making of history now
meant the doing of the thing well that
you are appointed -to do, and that
'aeh employee was as responsible for
the future success of the institution by
the performance of his or her duly
correctly as was Dr. Boyd. He closed
by saying what we do now in the min
or positions we hold. Is just what we
will do in the fnture. should we be
promoted or find other employment.
The dosing remarks were made by
Dr. Boyd, in which he assured Dr,
Frost that he had put forth every ef
fort to keep any inkling of what would
take place from reaching him not
even the Chairman of the Board or the
Editorial Secretary, Rev. Ellington,
knew what had been contemplated.
