Col. "Phil" Waters, the leading ex
ponent of race progress in the capi
tal city of West Virginia, is "doing
his bit" to make war a more pleasing
pastime than Gen. Sherman charac
terized ,it some years ago in a fa
mous epigram. A dean of the base-
Ball fraternity in his native land
himself, Col. Waters is devoting his
time and energy, towards raising a
fund to help in the campaign for
baseball outfits for the boys who have
gone and are going to the front in
defense ot our common country. The
Charleston (W. Va.) Gazette, a pe
rennial mend or men who do things,
regardless of race or color, tells the
story thusly in a recent issue: "Col
ored baseball fans of Charleston ral
lied around their committeeman,

and donated their quarters towards
the soldiers and sailors' ball and bat
fund. When Phil had completed his
rounaa tor tne day, many of the local
- devotees of the national sport had
contributed and others will cash in
before the week is over. Four hun
dred or more quarters have already
been given and before Col. Waters
(finishes his persuasive labors among
the fans and fanettes of Charleston,
his list of subscribers will look like
a special edition of the city direc
tory." Phil Waters, "may his shadow
never grow less," Is always ready to
, help to make humanity happier. In
' gathering this fund for a soldier and
sailors' baseball outfit. he is giving
cheer where a silver lining Is most
needed to dispel the clouds of grim
visaged war. ..
The law of natural selection will
solve the race problem. People will
associate with whom they like and let
those alone .with whom they have
nothing in common yet without fric
tion or a semblance of trouble. Le
gislation as to social intercourse Is
vicious, officious and unnecessary.
Let us cut out jealousy as a mon

never was a time when unity was

time when a solid front on the part

Dr. McCulloch expressed the hope

Dr. Dillard Introduced.
Dr. W. D. Weatherford, introduced
by Dr. Dillard, said progress was
making in education of the Negro
and told of improvements in Alaba
ma. No less progress is being made
economically, he said, and pointed out
that it will be money made for tne
south to aid the Negro farmers. And
progress is being substantially made
morally and religiously, the speaker
instancing that in recent trips no
found the colored schoolhouses in
good order and their, churches' at
tractive inside and out.
"We must make up our minds
once for all to rid ourselves ot race
prejudice all hatred of those who
live by our side forgetting that
there is such a thing as a color lino
in lustice." (The speaker said he
ot course did mean the elimination
of race differences no white man
wishes this but he spoke in relation
to justice and humanity. -
The speaker said that if the
southern people are to show that
they are advanced in civilization they
must give a square deal to the man
at the bottom.
Dr. C. V. Roman.
Dr. C. V. Roman, speaking on
"Equnl Treatment In Housing, Sani
tation and Public Improvements,"
said in beginning that his subject
had beon selected for him.
The speaker Bald that the chief
problem of social and economic re
form is to get men to think. "Thinn
ing is man's only salvation and rea
son Is the hope of the world. Innate
laziness rather than innate defiravity
Is man's besetting individual sin.
Inertia rather than opposition Is the
foe of reform. When the multitudes
think calmly, intelligently and. per
sistently, knowledge, hand In hand
with truth, will walk the earth, and
the dream of democracy will be ful
filled." Applying these views the speaker
said that the Declaration of Indepen
dence not only maintained that all
men are born with equal rights - to
life, llbertv and pursuit of happiness,
but also all governments derive their
just powers from the consent ot the the so-called exodus of colored men
Kingdom on earth, and the social
movement must have the aid of
Christianity if it is to succeed. In
fact, Dr. Poteat maintained many of
the so-called economic problems are
really religious problems. The ques
tion of the relations between capital
and labor is not economic, but it is
religious, as so is that of child labor.
Christ's command, was to love thy I
neighbor; was it the Master's intent;
that you love that neighbor yet raise!
no hand to save him from misery j
saying this is an "economic ' ques
tion? As a further. illustration in this con
nection Dr. Poteat said that tho hinh
tariff burden placed on the masses
for the benefit of a few was "not only
an economic stupidity but a moral
iniquity," casually remarking that he
had in the past been accused of posi
tive opinions on the tarllt question.
"All social questions are moral
questions to be settled by Christian
ity." The speaker said the attitude
of some church people toward social
questions justified Bernard Shaw's
definite of civilization as a "disease
which results from the effort to cre
ate just society out of rotten ma
terial." "Social regeneration must
come by recognition of social unily."
The assumption of its duty by the
church will not abolish the need for
the Sociological congress, however.
Its duty will lie In four ways: to
crystallize and consolidate Christian
opinion and sentiment; to supply ap
Daratus for co-operation ; to secure
bv legislation adequate practical ex
Dresslon or moral sense; for the
guidance and control of the minority
Dr, Dillard closed the discussion
with a brief appeal for activity in
promoting better relations between
the races; for charitable considera
tion by each race for the other; by
justice to the lower race, and a help
ing hand extended to it. At his re
quest the audience ctood while James
G. Stikeleather, accompanied by the
organ and the chir, sang wilh excel
