AIDING NATION TO WIN WAR
MANY VITAL ISSUES DIS
CUSSED. Washington, District of Columbia.
By the authority and direction of the
War Department and the Committee
on Public Information, Emmett J.
Scott Special Assistant to the Sec
retary of War, called to Washington
this week for a conference, thirty or
every representative of colored newa
papers of the country, together with
a number of the leaders of thnnzht
and opinion among the Negro peo
ple, to consider methods bv which
the milll'ons of colored people of the
nation may best assist In the win
ning of the war.
Proceedings Marked by Dignity
The conference formally opened
Wednesday moring, June 19, in the
. main auditorium of the new buf fl
ing of the Department of the Inter
ior, 18Hi and P Streets, northwest,
at 10:30 o'clock, and continued
throughout Thursday and Fn'day
June 20 and 21.
Mr. Scott presfded at all of the ses
sions which were marked by an earn
estness of purpose, a broad grasp of
the questions at issue and an unwav
ering oyalty to the flag of the nation,
as well as an intense devotion to the
- highest interest of the colored Ameri
cans for whom they came primarily
The discussion covered a wide
range, and the 'conferees were given
an opportunity to .present their
views, reflecting the state of mind of
the colored people of the country
with the utmost freedom and frank
ness, unhampered bv mrifnmoroi.Tr
.... restrictions or any effort to direct
opinion in any particular channel
save that of utilizing in the most ef
feotive mamner every resource at the
command of the race to bring vi'ctory
to the American arms In its present
struggle for liberty and world-wide
democracy. Mr. Scott's admirably
tempered addresses at various stages
of the deliberations repeatedly ad
monished the conferees to voice their
sentiments fully and fearessly, laying
all grievances and suggestions for
their redress upon the common alltar,
with a view of strengthening where
needed the patriotism and morale of
the Negro .people. So fair and impar
tial were the rulings of the chair up
on every point raised or principle
enunciated, that at not time was a
single exception taken to them. Ev
ery conceivable shade of individual
opinion was represented in the body,
but there was from the outset a firm
dispostlon to subordinate private and
personal considerations to the gen
eral good, without regard to politics,
creed, faction or sectl'on. This lofty
. aim was adhered to most toiim,.,!
Dignity of statement, harmony of
: thought and unity of action were the
jredominatling features of the three
, 'Hay's session. The document report
ed by the special committee appoint
ed to summarize the expression of
the conference as to the best plan
for the mobilization of the resources
, of the 12,000,000 Negroes of the Re
public in support of the war aims of
the trovernment, was adopted by a
unanimous vote,, given heartily and
enthuslnslically. "America" wara
sung with fervor and unction as final
adjournment was taken.

UNDER THEIR OWN OFFICERS
WAR CARRESPONDENT ON
Thirty thousand brave, unflinching,
uncompromising American citizens
representing a people of over Thir
teen million Negroes"" who are true,
loyal, American citizens, are now
fighting under the Stars and Stripes,
in the trenches, somewhere in France.
While the figures given out have not
been officially confirmed, it has been
learned from authentic source in this
city that with the arrival of Lieut. H.
A. Cameron and Captain M. V. Boutte
and H. H. Walker, with quite a few
others who are stationed in various
camps in the country, that the number
in France was augmented to this in
crease and that the Negro soldier
without fear or hesitation has made
a ganant dash at the Huns and they
are now pushing their way to the very j
?ates of Berlin. While the statement
"going to Berlin" might be consid
ered, in a measure, by some as off,
the very ones holding the line and
stopping of the mighty drive that has
been repeated or attempted time and
again and checked by the American
Forces who are fighting with the Allies
nnd with these American Forces, are;

formation that would give details of
the heroism of the Negro troops has
been slow in coming across the Atlan
'c either by cable or wireless, return
ed officials and men have been ex
travagant in their language and In
their compliments of what the black
man has been doing and is still! doing
to help win the world's "war for De
mocracy. The Negro press throughout the
country under the National Negro
Press Association has completed Its
arrangements and the members of
that organization of newspaper men
are said now to be in a position to
give to the world through their war
corespondent, who is Bald . to be in
France at this time, facts that are
calculated to bring even greater
patriotism and a deeper feeling in the
breasts of the black men because of
the sacrifice his brother is undergo
ing over the seas that the rights and
the liberties of the nations of the
world might be respected.
Cablegrams announcing the safe ar
rival of the various officers, men and
companies bring no details as to the
incidents. In discussing the matter
today, members of the staff console
themselves in the old adage that says
"no news is good news, but bad news

RETARY BAKER UNFAIRNESS
WILL BE INVESTIGATED.
Washington, D. C, July 1 The
War Department has made it clear
that it will tolerate no discrimina
tion against colored draftees by the
local draft boards in any section of
the country and that cases of alleged
unfairness will be fully investigated
and corrected by the Departmental
Secretary of War Newton D. Baker,
in a recent Interview, speaking with
reference to alleged discrimination
against colored draftees, said, in
"I have heard that draft boards
in adjoining counties take a different
view of practically identical facts
with regards to colored men; but tho
answer in all these cases is that a re
view is provided directly by the
President, and all that is necessary
for anybody to do who thinks there
is a grievance, is to point it out to the
War Department, and it will be in
vestigated. If the draft boards act

Some people have declared that
colored farmers do not know how to
use their money and therefore should
1 be satisfied with a bare subsistence.
This is what has happened to some
of the colored farmers' increased
earnings, according to the District
In Brunswick County one new
patent roller mill was installed last
year; in Caroline County two were
installed. The following churches
were remodeled: New Grove, Lunen
burg County; Morning Star, Notto
way County; Mt. Moriah and Cypress,
In Caroline County eight graded
school buildings were constructed at
an average cost of $1500 each.
W. G. Young of Greenville County
is one of the progressive farmers with
whom demonstration work has necn
conducted. He owns 654 acres of
land and has large barns and gran-
aries sufficient to shelter all his livo
' stock and feed, machinery and farm
tools. He has seven horses and
I mules, five cows, 51 hogs, one pure
blood Jersey bull, and one pure-blood
Berkshire boar. His improved ma
chinery includes a tractor engine,
gang plow and disc, mowing ma
chine, stalk cutter; manure spreader,
corn, cotton and peanut planters, fer
tilizer drill, corn shredder and husk
er, and cotton gin. His Buccess as a
farmer Is a great Incentive to others.
Agricultural fairs were held in the
seventeen counties in which colored
farm demonstration agents are at
work. "These county fairs have
served as a medium for inspiring the
colored farmers to strive harder for
greater improvement in their moral,
literary, and industrial develop
ment" says John Pierce. "They
bring county officials and white
friends in direct touch with tho con
tributions which the colored farm
ers are making to the growth of the
county. They pave tho way for the
best development of the county. They
demonstrate that the county can be
developed along all lines by both
races working co-operatively."

STATE CONVENTION IN SESSION
EJCELLENT PROGRAM CAR
RIED OUT ORGANIZED IN 1879
BANNER YEAR FOR THE
STATE OF OHIO.
Cincinnati, O., Monday, July l.1
Boiling over with Sunday school en
thusiasm and unsurpassed by the
amount of actual work done, the
First District Sunday School Conven
tion closed its annual session in this
city yesterday. The event was cele
brated and goes down in the history
as the greatest session in the history
of the Western Union Baptist Sunday
School Convention of the state, com
prising the First District. Thera
were a number of distinguished visi
tors here throushout the week, and
all of the sessions were held at the
Antioch Baptist Church, known
throughout the country as Dr. Wyatt's
church on East Ninth street.
From the opening session. Friday
morning, June 2S, until the close Sun
day afternoon, there was one contin
uous round of Sunday school activi
ties. But it aa conceded by all that
on Sunday afternoon the climax was
reached, when a mammoth street
parade, about four blocks in length,
in which over twenty Sunday schools
and representatives participated,
and where two brass bands dis
pensed music. The bands in the
parade were the Young Men's Chris
tian Association Band and tne .via
sonic Band, both from this city. The
parade was formed by Grand Marshal
D. L. Watson, a former superinten
dent, and the line of march traversed
gome of the principal thoroughfares
of Cincinnati. Veterans of the Sun
day school world, in point of age, as
ewll as experience, were on the street
and in the parade; notable among
them were the Secretary of the Sun
day School Conpress, Henry Allen
Boyd, of Nashville, Tenn.; Rev. E. W.
D. Curry, of the Urbana Industrial
Institute, Urbana; Hon. Oeoree W.
Hayes, Ex-President and Organizer of
the First Dintrict Convention; Mr.
W. T. Jackson, President of the First
District Convention; Miss Clara Por
ter Nelson, the Secretary; Rev. Drs. -Scott,
Walker, Williams, Jones and
a host of other associate miniatprs
and pastors. The zeal displayed by
! tMe Sunday school workers was not
! diminished, even when the parade
was overtaken by a downpour of rain;
tho bands continued to play; Old Glory
was unfurled and the Sunday school
workers, with their pennants and
banners, marched to the tune of "On
ward Christian Soldiers," without de
serting their posts or breaking the
line of march. When the parade
had reached the Antioch Baptist
Church, they marched in. while Prof.
John Smilev conducted the congrega
tional slnuing. There were solos by
little Miss Marian Hayes Hawkins,
Miss Mattie Johnson, Mrs. W. Augus
tus Jones and Prof. Smiley, after
which the President introduced Prof.
10. W. D. Curry, who spoke for one
hour and twenty minutes, dividing his
address into two divisions. When he
had finished, the President then in
troduced Rev. Henry A'len Boyd, who
had been invited to tho Convention
to deliver an address on Sunday
School Work; he spoke for forty
minutes. iThe curtain on the occasion
really descended at the close of the
nieht session. Many were the com
plimonts paid to Mr. Jnckson and
Mrs. Nelson for the work they had
done. As Prof. Jackson Is serving
