. On next Tuesday night tlie citizens
of Nashville are to gather at the
Carnegie Library to help cciebrate
at tlie family heme, litis Fourth ave
nue, S iiith. Mrs. Boxx spent part n
last s-.immer in Western Missouri
with a hope of much improvement,
but to no avail Sim returned home

the mighty reaper, relieved her of
all suffering. Mrs. Boxx was a
faithful member of Bethel A. M. E.
Funeral services over the remains
were held last Friday, February Ui,
trom Bethel A. M. E. Church. ' The
services were largely attended by the

Mr. Editor and readers of the most
powerful publication among Negro
Baptist west of the Mississippi, and
the greatest publication among Ne
gro Baptist of Arkansas:
'It is my privilege and pleasure to
present in this article a few thoughts
that represent my views upon this
great subject. I confess as 1 set with
pen in hand that to attempt to prove
that my subject heading is essential,
it is like attempting to stem the tide
of a stream when it is rising, because
it is a negative subject, and as such,
data for argument and proof for pro
position laid down are not as eccessi-
ble as that of the alBrmative subject.
But as one of old, we have launched
out in the knon'n in order to find the
unknown. As this great subject
broods upon my mind I recall to mind
two vety distinguished Bible charac
ters, that because they had the abil
ity to discover that separation would
be essental to their after-life and
bridged a very wide and deep chasm
that had been made by a very un
pleasant spirit and fellowship that
grew out of a controversy between
their servants. Imagine if you please
what would have been the awful re
sult had Abraham and Lot not sepa
rated, what would the world have
done without the moral lessons taught
because of their separation? The old
Bible to my way of thinking would
have been incomplete without the les
sons of faith and family love and ten
acity that is brought to us because of
their separation. Tlie great lesson
that comes to us and that teaches us
our social relation to strangers is but
the results of their separation. The
lesson we learned, that God means
that we should obey him not In part,
but in all comes to us as a result of
their separation. We know that In
union there is strength but that
strength and union is predicated up
on a congenial relation and good fel
lowship, having love for its bases of
operation. In the absence of the
above named qualities, attempting to
stay together means destruction.
Therefore, when conditions of any
thing, or persons grow so acute until
the object for which they stand will
ultimately be destroyed of the pro
gress along their given lines of work
will be thwarted, it si then that a sep
aration is essintlal for the salvation of
all concerned. .
For further proof of the assertion,
we have in mind two of the greatest
missionaries that ever walked upon
virgin soil. For Instance, Paul and
Barnabas, they saw and! God knew,
notwithstanding their missionary en
deavors had met with astounding suc
cess, they had preached the gospel in
different provinces and cities and had
made "their report to the apostles at
Jerusalem, which reports met their
But the development of the kingdom
of our Master later on suggested that
a separation of these two characters
would be essential, and more essential
If you please to the work of the king'
Who would deny that separation of
the colonies, even though blood and
tears from the monarchial govern'
ment, and thus forming an independ
ent government was not essential to
the growth and well-being and hap-
pines of this great- commonwealth?
Whenever and wherever the sweet-
aess of fellowship and kind-hearted'
ness that should exist in the life ot a
person or persons, and the npect
that eacn siiooid have for the other's
right are not exhibited or maintained
there is not any unity in the sense
that the ,Bible teaches, and therefore a
separation ofttlmes saves an utter
destruction of life, character and his
tory that would serve as a guardian
star for children even unborn.
Why should we dread to separate
as Baptists, any . man or set of men
from that which will be destroyed if
their connection will continue to be
the ruling of dominant powers when
we "see very clearly that, every step
that they make, i scarrying swiftly to
destruction that which we all love?

the reason we have put our lives into
it, but we contend and believe that
unless there is a separation of the
college from the dominant power and
rule of Dr. J. A. Booker, that the de
struction of the school is inevitable.
To our way of thinking, nothing will
save this great and grand old insti
tution from the pending destruction,
but a going in between ... it and the
president, and let him choose the let"
LOWER FLAT, 903-5th AVE., S.

Phone JI. ISIO-W.
Reason No. 3 may be set fortll in
the following: Wle call now uponlthVJ
witness stand tne graduates, the un
dergraduates, or any other stud(St
that has tf.ayed .iere long enough in
hand and the school the right, and In , lcarn the reai disposition of the f.es-
after years, when we are all dead that,
now live and are contending, our chil
dren will read some very pleasant
epochs in our history that will be for
them as a result of this separation
what the moral, spiritual, and ethical
lessons are to us because of the sepa
ration of the characters referred to.
. Note if you please, what brought
the separation of Abraham and Lot.
It was a disagreement on the part of
their servants, but in the life of these
two characters there was something
greater to them than the contention
of their servants. They regarded that
kinship, that family tie beyond all
else, but they knew that a destruction
of such was inevitable if they had
continued to insist on staying to
gether, therefore they separated,
which was essential both relatively,
historically and spiritually. Baptist
a'ike, should regard their past work
and present love, and iuture expecta
tion of their educational work in the
state to be greater than any man or
set of men. Whatever that will make
for the safety of our educational work,
it should be done, and to the writer's
way of thinking, the separation, of the
president and the college Is essential,
for the following reasons:
First, as we see It, the president of
the school has lost that commanding
influence and respect that would guar
antee a progressive administration.
He Is not revered by the public as a
college president should be. His dis
position to fight and to nag and to
put in every little puddle of conten
tion that arises among Baptists has
placed him among the common and
unlearned people of the country, and
as such the name of Dr. J. A. Booker
no more tickles the ears of the public,
and brin upon its face those broad
smiles of respect, because of his abil
ity as an educator. Whenever a man
loses the confidence of a people, and
whenever he cannot command that
public respect to succeed with public
institutions, the separation of " that
man from the Institution is essential
to its growth and accomplishment.
'Reason No 2, as to why the Baptist
should separate Dr. Booker from the
school Is that he has not that diplo
matic ability to make friends of those
who are in his immediate touch. To
prove this 'assertion, one would only
have to call the teacher's roll. Put
on the witness stand If you please,
every teacher that ,has worked with
him and that is now living, and note
In-the examination how many nice
things they will say respecting the
school or the president, and every
one that wllj testify unfacorably, their
testimony is traceable to his Inability
to make friends out of them both for
himself and the school, whether they
stay or go, the president of the col
lege should be so manly, so Christian
ly, so lovingly, so impartial in dealing
with his teaching'force until by reason
of circumstance any of them are
forced to go, they would carry In, their
bosom a warm place for both the pres
ident and the school, and could recom1
mend without a remorse of conscience
the school and. president to any
stranger, in a commendable way. But
this, condition does not exist, it ap
pears impossible for it to exist as
long as present management is main
tained, therefore, the separation of
him from this great and grand old
schoof Is essential for Its future,
ident, and out of the thousands vlth
whom he has had to to, now and then
among so many, there will come a
word of commendation or congratula
tion' for the president. These
students, graduates, and undergradu-.
ates leave the institution year after
year, deep down in their hearts, a
feeling that is not tender and com
mendable for, the president, .and a
such they go throughout the length
and breadth of this country, telling as
they go, the wails and sorrows and un-
UltlUlJ DUMJUftailUU UllUUS'M Wlllt.ll
they had to do, in order that they
had to do, in order that they might
obtain the goal of their efforts. Not
that it was necessary that they should
go through them, but fmi the story
they tell, this treatment is but the out
lines of the disposition of the presi
dent. Such Impressions upon the
students who from time to time enter
bllO acouui HI1U fcu aim uui u.
tke school are but filling tie state and
country up with young men and wom
en together with a disgruntled ex
teaching force as avowed enemies to
the school. If for no other reason
than No. 3, It alone Is sufficient for -the
Baptists to rise up in their might
and power and force a separation of
