MRS. ELLA SAUNDERS DEAD.
I want to say something through
your paper about an old colored wom
an who died in this city Sept. 29th,
.1918. Her name was, Ella Saunders.
j She was raised by Mrs. Saunders, the
, mother of the late Narcisa Saunders.
Mrs. -Saunders was the wife of. Ex.
Gov. Brown of Tenn. We did ' not
. know the real age of this old colored
lady, but from all appearances and in
dications she must have been well
'up in eighty. For twenty or more
years she was a cook in the family of
my brother, W. P. Hood, who died
auuui, ciRui. years ago. one was liv
ing with them at the time of his
; death, after which she went to live
.'with my nelce, Mrs. .Wilbur Murray
,of Waverly place. There she died and
;went to her long eternal home. This
old lady was a model woman, she was
van old timer in every sense of the
word. She lived and enjoyed the,
Via Time Religion." She was true
." and devoted member of the Missionary
wmcn Church Rev. Jack Harding is
jthe pastor. Her funeral service was
, held at that church and the serv
ice was conducted by Rev. Harding,
'her much loved pastor.
We want to say to him, that when
aunt Ella died, he lost a true friend,
and the church a devoted member.
- Her heart was there, her mind was
; there and all that she possessed was
tnereat tnat church. Her friends all
say, that they are of the opinion that
aunt Ella gave un all that she hart
for the cause she so dearly loved,
She did not love this world neither
, the things that are in the- world, and
thereby s!-e proved that the love of
' 1 God was in her heart and that God
dwelt hi her and with her and help
ed her a.id kept her as the "Apple of
His own eye." Aunt Ella, so fami
liarly known by all her friends, i
. gone from us, she lived out her days
and they were well spent in the love
. and service of her Master, whom every
act of her life proved that she loved
above her chief Joy. She is gon?
; to live with Jesus, her Savior and Re
deemer. Her life is hid with Christ
.in God, and when Christ who is her
Saviour shall appear, then, she with
all the redeemed family of God, out
of every kindred, tongue and peaple,
Shall appear with Him in glory,
For this she anxiously, looked, for
; this she so much desired, and some
sweet day to her. God will satisfy her
every desire ,as He will do all othj s
who hope in His mercy through Jm
, ; Christ; I am truly glad that I can
ay this concerning this good old
(faithful servant whom we all loved.
- ' She was a true friend, a kind and
, helpful comfort to many who will
' long remember her.
. ' Way God In His rich, free and un
: merited grace, visit, us all in His love
1 pity and tender mercy and prepare
us, as He did her to depart out of
this world ln the triumphs of a llv
! ing faith ln the atoning blood of the
" Lord Jesus Christ and die and go home
to God, there to llv ln peace and
Joy in all eternity. :

CHURCHES WILL NOT OPEN '
It was learned through the health
department that Dr. Hibbett an

This order has effected ninety-two
churches in the city with an approxi
mate membership, of over twenty, j
inousana communicants, Jfivery de

of churches, but reports are coming
in that the pastors are making - the
noble sacrifice and that not one has
entered a protest, notwithstanding it
has interfered greatly with the rais
ing of the pastor's salsfry. Even the
Ministers' Conferences have been
postponed, and the preachers seem to
bo lending' their fullest support in
every way possible.

DRIVE TO CLOSE SATURDAY
NEGROES WILL GO "OVER
- THE TOP" TREE TEAMS
"Nearly TWo Hundred Thousand
Dollars is the sum tota,l ot the
Fourth Liberty Loan bonds subscrib
ed by the NegroesW Nashville in
the drive that is to close out on Sat
uiday," declared the Rev. Henry Al
ien Boyd, the chairman of the Fourth
Liberty Loan Committee that was or
ganized in the Y. M. C. A. building
last Sunday to help Nashville and
this district to go "over the top" by
as' large figures as their financial
strength will permit. "While the
final total is un approximation, it is
based upon the Information that has
been obtained from time to time and
from place to place where the Cam
paign Committee has gone in search
of pledges. Thu Negroes were called
in at. the eleventh hour, so to spoak,
by the Liberty Loan Committee, but
when tho mutter was put squarely be
fore them and our men understood
that they were called in to help tho
government win the war by making
a big success ot tiie Liberty Loan
drive, every one of them volunteered
and a Campaign Committed of lime,
augmented by the officers elected,
have put their hearts and souls into
the work, and 1 an: certain that no
nobler sacrifice has been made than
that evidenced in the total, amount
subscribed by our people of the city.
There are a nunibei of our men who
could have been more liberal and
more patriotic in the amount sub
scribed, but I am not the judge anil
am not to critiiise any man, as each
and every one of them know their
financial ability," declare,! Mr. Boyd
at a meeting heid ut noon in the Y.
M. C. A. building. 0
The organization of the women has
been working tremenduously hard
and the three teams have, conducted
a most friendly rivalry with astonish
ing success. They have been -able to
make arguments to the disinterested,
showing the advantage of a Liberty
Bond, and in a quarter. of the city
the Negroes hae represented, even
to the extent of personal sacrifices
in lending to the government all their
means. Nashville is going "over the
top," is declared to be largely due to
the liberal spirit of the working peo
ple. Some criticism has been in
dulged in, according to rumors on the
street, about -the tight-chested atti
tude of some of our so-called leaders,
and it was rumored this week that
some said they were not willing to
invest in Liberty Bonds because the
returns were too Email. This, how
ever, had no effect upon the work of
the committee and the organization
that was perfected to put the loan
over, as no capital was made of it
and the masses who contributed and
who subscribed with that liberality
characteristic of the Negroes were
constantly encouraged. Meetings at
noon and at night at the Y. M. C. A.
with frequent concerts and public
exhibitions helped to put the loan
over. At the coner of the Y. M. C.
A. biftlding-the ladies' committee se
cured a piano and the services of a
quartet and on each night entertain
ments were given. On Wednesday
night nearly. $1,000 was subscribed.

nothing more. People don't have that

16th to 20th, 1918, has been the scene
of one of the strongest race-rights
convention ever held by Colored
Americans, and one destined to be
historic. For this, thank the National
Equal Rights League, Mrs. Ida B. W.
Barnett, local chairman, Rev. L. K.
Williams, pastor of Mt. Olive Bap
tist church, where sessions were held
till Thursday afternoon and Rev. B.
J. Prince, pastor of Original Provi
dent Baptist Church, whuro the con.
ventiori was concluded.
It was the 11th annual meeting of
this Colored League. A splendid body
of 90 delegates were present from, 23
states, and session after session
they deliberated for the race. The
outstanding results are an improved
constitution, strong address to the
country, a delegation to call on Pres
ident Wilson to ask Congress to be
gin demorracy here for all Colored
Americans. resolutions endorsing
woman suffrage, demanding Colored
doctors be called as medical offi
cers, that Colored men be line offi
cers and non-commissioned officers
of Colored units, a conference with
organized labor, rules for local bran
ches, an Official pin proposed by Prof.
A. U. Craig, and the plan for a Na
tional Equal Rights Representative
Assembly, by which Colored America
can elect peace pet'.Soners tos ask
for world demor ;icy for Colored
Americans as parV and parcel of the
new world alignment.
It was a great convention and
should lead to great results it sup
ported by the race.
The league devoted tho meeting to
measures whereby world democracy
could be secured for Colored Aceri-
cans. who are taking part in the fight
against' Germanic autocracy. A dele
gation, consisting of the Rev. E. W.
Moore. Columbus, O., Dr. J. D. Gbr-
don, Loss Angeles, Cal.; Mrs. Ida
Wells Barnett and the Rev. S. R. Gip
son, Chicago, 111.; D. J. Johnson, Tren
ton, Ark., and Professor A. W. Whal
ey and William Monroe Trotter, Bos
ton, was- appointed to call on Presi
dent Wilson to recommend to Con
gress measures to remove color pro
scriptions. The most significant act of the con
vention was the adoption of a plan to
enable the Colored citizens to elect
race representatives to lay the cause
of their race before the world peace
conference at the war's close for full
democracy as a part of the new world
adjustment. The league proposes a
National Equal Rights Congress of the !
race at Washington on or after Jan;
1, 1919, to which delegates will be
elected by leagues or affiliated race
bodies, who will select these world
peace petitioners. -Those organizing
Equal Rights Leagues are asked to
notify the Cor. Sec, W. M. Trotter,

The convention thanked the pastors
the cause of the race. r . "
Who is there among us
Yet under the rod?
He knows not the pardoning '
Mercy of God.
Oh! bring him humbly
The heart in Its pride.
Ob! haste while he's waiting
And seek Wilson's side.
Oh!. heed not the sorrow,
The pain and the wrong;
For soon shall our sighing
Be changed into song.
So, bearing the cross
Of our covenant Guide,
We will shout as we triumph
"We are on Wilson's side"

Spirit of Cooperation Is Excellent
Declares Lieut. Paul Berthier, of
French Ordnance Engineers.
Everyone works and there is a fine
spirit of cooperation among the peo
ple of France, according to Lieut.
Paul Berthier and other officers of the
mission of French ordnance engi
neers in America, wherethey are en
gaged in important work for the
Men, women, and children are all
gladly doing their part to free the
land from tho invader, unci although
long hours are the rule, there is no
complaint, for everyone realizes that
tho task must be accomplished and
that only by supreme exertions will
it De possible.
In the great rush of the German in
vasion, back in 1911, France, fearing
for her very life, summoned every
man to arms. This was a mistake,
fm. munltIons factories were denud-ed
of their skilled workmen and many
of them gave their Uvea in Btemming
Von Kluck's sweep toward Paris.
When the realization came that the
munitions' factories were hampered
and that their men could serve bet
ter there than in the army, a prob
lem was presented. For these men
were already in the army, and no one
left outside except the men past 48
years of age, these physically unfit,
and a few great specialists. Even the
managers ot the shops were in the
The "work or fight" rule at once
therefore, became a reality, for men
were sent back from the army to the
factories only so long as they could
serve better there than ln the ranks.
If their work proved unsatisfactory,
they were promptly returned to their
places in the .battle line.
France has now found a reservoir
of unskilled labor among the German
prisoners. They are used for? heavy
work, and Chinese and Senegalese
workers have been imported for sup
plying other labor needs. Women
have shown remarkable adaptability
in the skilled trades, and do somo
really remarkable work in the muni
tions factories, particularly on shells.
The supply of male skilled labor of
military age, however, can only" be
Increased by request to the ministry
of munitions for the services of men
at tho front. In many factories
wounded soldiers have been employ
ed advantageously on certain work.
In practice the rule is that men are
not returned to munitions factories
unless they have passed their thirty
fifth birthday or have served two full
years in the army.
'It Is not often necessary to send
men back from the facton;es, says
Lieut. Berthier. '"The war is a fact
to every man and woman in France.
We shall have to stop and think what
we shall do when the war is ended.
"Everyone workis for the .war.
Think what it means that we have
made guns to enable America to en
ter the fighting earlier than she could
have done! Think of the land, fac
tories, the -coal mines, and most ot
all, the men we have lost. It Is only
because everyone in France works
hard that we can have guns and am
munitions for our nllies and our own
arm'es. Although I understand that
other types of 75's are manufactured
In England and America, I Inow that
at Bourges all the French 75's guns
that have become famous ere made
for the French and American Armies.
Think what a plant it is that can pro
duce in qantlty for several nations!"
This tremendous output, according
to Lieut. Berthier. Is only possible
