of deciding the value of a man's life.

depend to a great extent upon his phyni

LILLIAN CLAYTON JEWETT
NOT ALLOWED TO ADDRESS BAP?
(By Telegraph to Virglnian-Pllot)
Richmond, Va.. Sept. 13.?Miss Lilian
Cl.tytuu Jewell gffCCCeOBo Ih creating
a sensation nt the meeting of the Na?
tional Baptist Association here to-day,
and insisted on speaking despite the
refusal of the ministers and delegates
to endorse her.
Just as the morning session was be?
ing brought to a close Miss Jewett,
who occupied a seat in the gallery,
arose and began to address the meet?
ing. Her remarks were prefaced by
the words: "Ladies and gentlemen."
and she went on to say that she was
the friend and champion of the negro
race, although the convention had re?
fused to accord her the privilege of the
floor to deliver her address.
Continuing, she said that she was on
the roll of Virginia, and would speak.
She asked all to follow her into the
street In front of the church, and said
that she would there address them.
She declared that she would speak,
even If the people wanted to lynch her
for so doing.
At this point an attempt was made
by a member of the convention to raise
the hymn, "Throw Out the Llfe-Line,"
but the president called him to or?
der, and stated in a few words that it
was not the desire of the convention
to take any part In Miss Jewett's
movements. Miss Jewett left the gal?
lery and went out Into the street,
which was packed. Standing in a car?
riage, she spoke for about ten min?
utes on her usual theme. "Antl-lynch
ing." Then she shook hands all
around, the negroes pressing forward
to greet her.
The following statement was given
"Miss Lillian Clayton Jewett, the
anti-lyncbing ngitator of Boston, will
not address the National Baptist Con?
vention, which Is now in session in the
Fifth' Street Baptist Church, of which
I nm the pastor. We cannot afford to
indulge any one in remarks that would
tend to mar the present relations that
now exist between the white and col?
ored people of this city and State.

A committee, consisting of Rev. C.
R. Morris, of Boston, Mass.; Revs.
Adams. William H. Stewart and Rev.
W. F. Graham, pastor of the Fifth
Street Baptist Church, was appointed
to wait on Miss Jewett and tell her
not to speak before the convention.
This committee performed Its duty.
Pev. Graham said that it had been
decided best not to even have Miss
Jewett introduced, as she might at?
tempt to say something and say too

Watertown, S. D.. Sept. 13.?The first
stop of the special train in bearing the
Roosevelt party, after leaving Brook
lngs this morning:, was matle at Castle-,
wood, where Governor Roosevelt madcC
a brief address. "Watertown was the
next stop. Here an outdoor meeting
was held and Governor Roosevelt spoke
at some length. Governor Roosevelt
said. In part:
"I would like to discuss not only the
serious questions of free silver, of
trusts, the tariff, orderly preservation
of law and upholding of the flag, but I
would like to discuss even the opera
bouffe questions of militarism and Im?
perialism presented by our opponents.
Certain of our Democratic friends have
the audacity to say that they repre?
sent tho principles of the founders of
the Republican party of long ago. If
they had any feeling or a drop of the
blood that ran In the veins of the great
original statesman who conducted tho
country through the four years of civil
war. and then gave up his life that his
country might live, they would turn
wllh Indignation from the stage where
the candidate of Democracy speaks to
those nominating him about the con- I
sent of the governed as regards the
Philippine. . knowing that one of the
chief chances of his election and abso?
lute triumph of his party consists In
nullifying the doctrine in some of the
Southern States which Lincoln gave his
life to free."

NOVELTY FOR THE TABLE.
A Pretty Fruit Piece That Anyone With
a Little Taste Can Arrange.
Here Is ah Idea that may appeal to an
ontertuiner: it Is an evident fact that
the time-honored fruit dish, with its as?
sortment of fruit, no longer has any
place on a modern table; each kind of
fruit Is put by Itself on a separate sil?
ver dish artistically arranged. Anyone
who has a little taste can Imitate the
arrangement, says Anna Wentworth
Scars In Woman's Home Companion.
Tako tour plates of equal size; put on
them some green leaves?bay leaves,
geraniums or whatever one happens to
have at hand?and arrange the. fruits to
suit the different kinds. Make a pyra?
mid of bright red apples, with four ap?
ples for a base, three oa top, and one on
lop of all. with the leaves in between.
Arrange oranges in the same way, but
on the third plate lay bunches of grapes
carelessly on leaves, and on the lourtn
put bannanas. Lo'! with the four plates
at the four corners the table Is dressed
at once. Nuts may be used Instead of
fruit on one plate, and tigs and dates on
the other, but beware of the old-fash?
ioned fruit basket or dish if you wish
your table to be up-to-date.
