Memphis, Term., Nov 20th.
Special to the Nashville Globe:
Thousands of friends, sympathizers
and citizers of Memphis, augmented
by a half hundred out-of-town vlsi
tors, paid their last respects over the
remains of the late Rev. T. J. Searcy,
D. D., today at the Church Auditorium
where the funeral services over the
distinguished Baptist prelate and min
ister of the gosped were held. The
oldest residents of this city declared
that not in the history of Memphis
has a funeral been so largely attended
or attracted so many notable persons
from various, states in the Union, who
journeyed especially to the city to
be present and to participate in the
ceremony of services.
The Rev. Dr. Searcy passed away
last Saturday at 7:00 p. ni. News of
his death spread throughout the city
rapidly. Telegrams and letters flew
thick and fast all over the United
States, and after a hurried confer
ence with members of the family and
intimate friends, together with the
officers of the church, the funeral hour
was set for ten o'clock Tuesday, Nov.
of whom paid special tribute to the!
life and character of the deceased.
At the conclusion Miss Sallie Hill sang
"The Sparrow." Resolutions were
then read from the Metropolitan Bap-i
list Church by Mr. L. C. Moore, the
Grand Master of Odd Fellows for the
stute of Tennessee. Other resolutions
were read by Prof. C. J. Neal, Mrs.
Florence Cooper and Mr. Z. L. Bonner.
Rev. R. S. Brown then sang a solo,
following this Miss L. E. Campbell,
an active worker in the Metropoli
tan Baptist Church, read the follow
"Rev. T. J. Searcy was born in
Rutherford Co., Tenn., Nov. 4, 1853,
died Saturday Nov. 17 at 7:00 p. m.,
age 64 years. He graduated from
Roger Williams University May 14,
1880. In 1882 he was called to pastor
the First Baptist Church of Browns
ville, Tenn., which church he served
Taithfully for eleven years. He was
then called to the Tabernacle Baptist
Church Memphis, and after servine
seven successful years, he resigned
this charge to accept the position of
Field Secretary, having been called
by the Baptist State Convention and
Home Mission Board (white) He
served here four years. On Oct 2, 1902
he accepted the - pastorate of the
Metropolitan Baptist Church. He
served this church 15 years. In all
these years he has given untiring ser
vice for the spread of the gosnel of
Jesus Christ. His word always bore
consolation and faith. His last ser
vice in the Metropolitan Church was
the first Sunday in July. He went
home from this service to rest and to
come back to his flock. He did not
speak of death during his illness, but
was patient in the hope to enlarge the
church, his greatest ambition."

that there is a prince and a great man
fallen this day in Israel?" His was a
splendid tribute from a Biblical and
logical sitting, built up from argu

eloquent. He gave to the deceased the
credit due in death, and declared that
a real prince of Israel had fallen. For

The work of the Grand Deputy, Sir

The Field Deputy was .greatly im
pressed with Sy.acuse Lodge, its of

business was conducted. Punctuality
in opening and closing the lodge and
their attention to detail made the
meeting even more impressive. This
good lodge subscribed $200 to the
Liberty Loan Fund.
Rev. J. W. Tate, the eloquent Grand
Prelate, and Sir John Singleton have
already organized a lodge at Alco and

HENRY ALLEN BOYD AT
Camp Meade, Md., 11-17, 17,
Special .to the Nashville Globe:
In company with another national
character, Rev. Henry A. Boyd, the
secretary of the Sunday School Cor.
, gress, visited Camp Meade. He was
in company with Rev. Elbert W.
Moore, D. D., of Columbus, Ohio.
They came up from Washington and
were met by the secretary of the
Young Men's Christian Association in
the person of Dr. Cabaniss. When
they were taken to the Tennessee di
vision they were received with a great
demonstration. Half of the day was
. spent here inspecting the quarters
shaking hands with the enlisted men
. and giving a word of encouragement
here an dthere assuring the brave boys
on each and every occasion that
' .though the loved ones at home were
praying that they might give a full
account of themselves at whatever
point they may be moved whether
"Somewhere in France" or marching
on to Berlin with the conquering

his stay here the Rev. Mr. Boyd as
sured the Tennesseana that they

communication from the proud Vol

will visit practically every canton.

building in the city was secured for
the occasion. Notwithstanding the
bereaved family had requested a
simple funeral, pressue was brought
to bear from within as well as with
out the city to allow the friends of
the noted dead to have at least a word
to say over his remains. Both races
were represented on the program, and
men from the professional as well
as the business walks of life partici
paled. Surging crowds and throngs
of people not only filled the great
auditorium, but for yards away from
the building, spreading out in the
Church Park where the auditorium Is
located, one could hardly reach the
Slowly, with sorrowing hearts and
solemn tread, the family and friends
with the honorary pall-bearers of
the late Dr. Searcy wended their way
from the family residence at 385 S.
Cynthia Place at 9:30 this morning
to unurcn's Auditorium on Beale Ave
nue, where the former pastor of the
Metropolitan Baptist Church had lain
in-state in order that the thousands
oi irienas mignt view tne last re
mains. As the solemn procession
turned Into Beale Avenue with its
official escorts, a passage was com
polled to be made in order that they,
might have access to the street, so
dense was the throng of people lining
notn sides of the streets, with bowed
heads even to get but a glimpse of
the massive casket containing all that
was mortal of this city's most distin
guished citizen. When the procession
reached the auditorium . a choir con
sisting of members of the Metropoli
tan and other churches of the city
sang sortiy, but when the procession
marched up the aisle a funeral dirge
was begun as the long line filed in.

hour was long past one o'clock when
he was introduced, it was evident
from his delivery that throughout
the long wait careful preparation had
been made. At the conclusion of his
oration, Rev. S. E. Griggs was in
troduced by the master of ceremony,
and assisted in the oration. It was
brought our during the long exer
cises that the Rev. Dr. Searcy was a
national character, having lived in
Memphis for twenty-five years. His
first pastorate was that of a church
at Brownsville, where he took charge
immediately after his graduation from
Roger Williams University; he then
came to the Tabernacle Baptist
Church where he served them for seven
years. Leaving the pastorate he took
up the mission work as superinten
dent of mission for the state of Ten
nessee under the Baptist State Conven
tion, which was then in co-operation
with the Home Mission Society of
New York. It was while engaged in
mm wui k mat. ne was caueu to the i
Metropolitan Baptist Church, where I
he served until the time of his death.
The late Dr. Searcy was elected some
years ago as chairman of the Educa
tional Board of that part of the Na
tional Baptist Convention now known
as the incorporated convention. He
was secretary of the Trustee Board of
Howe Institute, was ex-president of
the National Negro Business League.
Many of the speakers touched upon
his activities and his deep interest in
the civic improvement throughout the
city. The active pall-bearers were
Messrs Wm. Lane, C. J. Neal, H. C.
Thomas, L. C. Moore, T. H. Johnson
and Dr. G. W. Adklns. The honorary
palL bearers were: Revs: W. J. Mc-
Michael, W. W. Whitton, A. Parr, W.
L. Petty, W. T. Vernon, Wm. Coke,
R. S. Brown. Prominent among the
visitors who came to attend the
funeral were Revs. C. A. Eell and H. C.
Moore of Chattanooga, Tenn., J. R.
Burnett and others from Jackson,
Tenn., Amos Johnson of Vicksburg,
Miss., W. L. Craft, Henry A. Boyd, A
M. Townsend, Wm. Haynes and E. M

church, with Rev. Harding Smltji of

Other schools in which campaigns
were held, but from whom reports
have not yet been received are
Georgia State College, Gammon Theo
logical Seminary and Morris Brown
The interesting thing- about it all
is that the subscriptions are being col
lected promptly. Hampton Institute
and Union University have both col
lected their subscriptions of $1000
each; Haines Institute, of Augusta,
Ga subscribed $144 and collected
$234. The collecting campaign Is still
going on and from present reports
there is every reason for believing that
not less than 80 per cent - of all sub
scriptions will be collected.
A circular appeal is being sent out
this week urging all schools in which
campaigns were not held to observe
Nov. 27th as a special day of prayer
and offering for the War Fund. It
is hoped that the same spirit of sacri
fice may characterize their responcc
as was true of those that participat
ed in the subscription campaign.
Mr. Tobias and Miss Evans have
been ably assisted in their campaign
work by Dr. J. E. Moorland, Secretary
J. H. McGrew of Va., Secretary J. B.
Watson of Atlanta, President Joh
Hope of Atlanta, Mrs. Mary C. Mc
