This is the third meeting looking

churches a recess was had. In the
afternoon, there was a lively busi
ness session, and addresses were'
delivered by representatives of the
M. E. church south, and the Metho

ing was harmonious and full of en
thusiasm. The feature of the session Satur

on address to the country, Betting
forth the position of the colored
Bishops on the things which con
cern the nation tollay. This docu
ment was manly, yet conservative.
Each of the councils held separate
meetings during the week. The

BRANSFORD HIGH SCHOOL SOON
, TO HAVE SERVICE FLAG. .
Special to the Globe:
Bransford School will soon have a
Service Flag with seven or more
stars. Quite a number, of our boys
have passed the physical examination
and received their notices. It will be
quite an honor to have so many boys
from a small school like Bransford.
Among the boys will be, Dallas
Sweeney, who is our best base ball
pitcher" and he will be a great loss to
the team of 1918, if he goes before the
season is out.
Eloquent, logical and patriotic
were the presentations made to His
Excellency, Governor Thomas C. Rye,
in the legislative chamber at the
State Capitol at twelve-thirty o'clock
Wednesday . by the committee of
about two thousand of Nashville's
most' intelligent, law-abiding and in
dustrious citizens. No greater dem
onstraJon has ever been made as
far as can be traced from the rec
ords of the state by the Negroes of
the Volunteer State. Hhe committee
met in the lobby of the Y. M. C. A.
Building at the corner of Cedar and
Fourth avenue and heard the reports
of the special committee that had
Veen sent to Estill Springs to bring
back the facts first-handed. While
the names of the committee had not
beei divulged, they brought full re
torts of the acts that are said to
have aggravated and led up to the
kil'lng of the two white men and the
wounding of a third one by Mclll
herron. After the reports had been
read, three addresses and appeals
were indorsed to be presented to
the Governor of the State, calling
unon arid appealing to him,i to bring
uauou ui sum outrages
&alnBt tne name f the fair state of
Tennessee. A parade was formed of
men four abreast and they took up
the line of march to Capitol Hill,
a distance of three blocks.
When the front of the parade was
going into the capltol gate, the men
were still coming out of the Y. M.
C. A. Building.
By special appointment the Gov
ernor and some of the state officials

Governor of the State or Tennessee,

appealed to by more than two Uiou-

carrier who earns his bread by the
sweat of his brow; the artisan from
the various labor industries; tho

the minister of the gospel from the
pulpit; the physician from the bed

the bar; the merchant from the com
mercial world; the banker from the

the Negro of this city made up the
parade that marched silently up
Capitol Hill, into the presence of
the Chief Executive, of Tennessee.
When the Governor entered ie

of the United States Treasury,, who
is a native Tennessean and who has

the Governor, and said:
DELIVERED BY HON, J. C.
NAPIER ON BEHALF OF
THE . CITIZENS.
Gov. T. C. Rye,
The Capitol, .
The right of petition is guaranteed
to all citizens of our country by the
; 1 I
constitution of the United States.
The right of trial by an impartial
jury of the State is vouchsafed, to
pvery defendant, every person
charged with a crime before he can
be legally subjected to punishment
for any infraction of law with which
he may be charged. These provi
sions are the bulwark of our liberty. I
They are the ground upon which wo i
base all our security of life, liberty
and property; nor' can he be de
prived of these without due process
of law. In the organic law of the
land we are told that the right of
ihe people to be secure in their
persons, houses, papers and effects
against unreasonable searches and
seizures shall not be violated.
We feel that these fundamental
principles of the laws of our land,
In letter aad in spirit, have recent
ly been i grossly and flagrantly, vio
lated. We believe that there is a
remedy for all these evils. Under
this right of petition we have como
to you, Governor Rye, to ask that
you set in motion all the legal and
judicial machinery of our State
Government with a view of .putting
an end, for all time to come, to
feuch inhuman, illegal and cruel prac
tices as have been, recently perpe
trated upon men of our race in this
State. Mob violence for the punish
ment of Negroeb in ' this State,
charged with crimes and misde
meanors of greater or smaller de
gree, has become of such frequent
occurrence as to create alarm in
the minds of all of us and to give
the warning that no membes of our
race is safe when such charge, juBtly
or unjustly, is lod.ged against, Mm.
We hope that there are laws al
ready on our statute books to reme
dy these wrongs and we trust that
men may be found who will bring
them out from the dusty files that
they may be put into execution and
forever put an end to the work of
mob which is constantly bringing
dishonor and disgrace on our State
and upon our Christian civilization.
We come to you on a mission of
peace and pood will, in an effort to
save the innocent; but in no sense
to protect or shield the gtiiltv-from
that punishment meted out by the
law, however severe it.mnv be. We
ore law-abiding citizens and it is our
desire to live or to die bv its man
dates. And what we ask for otir
Rplves vp expect to be visited upon
others. Tho man or set of men who
willfully and unlawfully takes the
life of a fellowman ought to be
Tnade to feel the strong arm of the
law and to suffer whatever penaltv
ihe peonle and the law have pre
scribed for his or their offense. ,
The black man in this State is
the most unprotected being that
breathes the breath of life. The fish
iu the waters are ' protected; the
birds pf the air are shielded; your
horse and your cow are cared for
by statute and no one dares mis
treat or abuse them, lest the game
laws, or the society for the preven
tion of cruelty to animals, or the hu
mane commission will be after him.
U either of these were purposely
burned to death in a public place it
would arouse such horrJr and indig
nation in the minds of the people as
that the immediate' punishment of
the offender would be. demanded and
he would be forced to pay the pen
nltv that' the law prescribed. Yet,
public announcement may be made
that a human being is to be burned;
he is burned and no law can be
found to punish the men who burn
And here the question' . arises:
What are we to expect; to what des
tiny are we to look forward? How
soon may the same fate overtake
some of us who have lived peacea
ble, long and orderly lives in our
communities About two years ago
It was in Fayette, County, . eight
months ago in Shelby County, four
months ago In Dyer County, a
week ago in, Franklin County. If
this spirit" is allowed to stalk abroad
unmolested, who can tell how soon
it may reach Davidson County? We
are glad to see that all classes of
our good people in this State are
aroused to a sense of the enormity of
the mob conditions that encompass
us. We are grateful to the noble
men, the kindly women, the courag
eous press of Tennessee, who have
taken up this cause and are mould
ing a public sentiment that we trust
will render a future repetition of
these deplorable occurrences impos
sible. Governor Rye, we do not expect
any one to perform impossibilities,
but we. think we see In this crisis
an opportunity for you to throw
yourself iri the breach and render the
people of this State, and the cause
of humanity a service that will for
ever endear you to them and in the
years to come cause all their progeny
to rise up and call your name aud
your memory blessed.
The seriousness of the situation
is sufficiently grave to set every
law-abiding citizen to work in the

And grant to us what is due?

Put Justice in reaching distance,
Where all mankind may partake.
