H. T. Orsborn, athletic director of
the Y. M. C. A., returned yesterday
from the association's camp for boys
at Sonora, 111. He went up Tuesday
wit** Pev. McAllister and ten Baptist
boys. The boys have been encamped
there since July 5. The camp will
break up Saturday. Mr. Orsborn will
return to Sonora to aid in packing
up for the return home.
Mr. Orsborn says the boys are hav
ing the time of their lives. Thirty
are now in camp. The exposure to
the sun from dawn till dark has
browned their arms and faces, so
that the entire crowd resemble a
tribe of Indians.
The camp is situated in an Ideal
place. It is about 100 yarts from the
road between Hamilton and Nauvoo.
It is in sort of a bench in the hill
above the river. There are two
springs within a few yards of the
site. Four tents have been erected
on the spot. Two of these are used
for sleeping. One does service for a
cook tent. The fourth is the head
quarters of the camp and houses the
office of William E. Brugman, direc
tor of the camp.
Early in the morning the boys take
a swim. Then breakfast is eaten.
In the morning there is more swim
ming. A long hike is taken every
day. Dinner is served at 12. In the
afternoon, boating fills the time.
There is a story hour in the evening,
which is spent about a big camp fire.

America, he declared, should be the

"You should find the best way to

said the president. "It isn't fair to

(LASAiLiLiE, 111., July 13.—The first
call for state troops to quell labor
riots since militia contingents were
ordered to the border, was made to
day toy Sheriff Davis, of LaSalle
county, following incipient battles be
tween strikers at cement plants here
and the police.
As Illinois has two militia regi

The situation about the cement
plants was quiet early today, but
Sheriff Davis was taking no chances.
•No arrests had as yet been made
as results of the attack made late
yesterday by strikers on LaSalle po

cement plants, attaoked Police Chief

took their stars and clubs away from
them. No one was seriously injured.

Rev. D. E. Butler, of Bethel A. M. E.
Church, Announces Important
DATES ARE AUGUST 7-8
Will be Rally for Support of Wilber-
force University, Oldest Ne
gro Educational Insti
One of the results or the general
conference of the African M. E. de
nomination, recently held in Philadel
phia, was the transfer of Rt. Rev. B.
F. Lee, senior bishop, to the Alabama
conference, and the assignment of Rt.
Rev. Levi J. Coppln, as presiding
bishop of the Fourth Episcopal dis
trict, which includes the states of
Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota
and the two Dakotas.
The bishop is one of the ablest
churchmen among his bretheren, and
has contributed much to negro litera
ture. In his salutation to the fourth
district, which includes Keokuk, the
bishop said in part:
"I am glad to be associated with
you in christian service out here in
the west, where mighty men have set
standards. Where brave men, loyal
and true, have lengthened the cords
and strengthened the stakes and
where men now on duty regard the
field as being yet propitious for new
conquests. The west is the course of
empire, and holds the records of
America's highest marks in material
progress. Here adventure is invited
and golden opportunities are offered
upon every hand. Let our vision
broaden—let us co-operate. No ele
ment in our constituency can be over
looked or under-rated. None so in
significant as to be neglected and
none so lofty as to be excused."
The bishop suggested that the black
man play well his part in making the
community better in which he lives.
Impress the white man that to edu
cate, moralize and socialise the black
man is surely making tho community
better. Bishop Coppin has designated
August as the month when the men
of the Iowa conference rally for Wil
berforce university and negro educa
tion. The amount apportioned to this
conference is $1,200 and for the entire
Episcopal district, $4,700.
Wilberforce is the oldest negro uni
versity in the country and has a cadet
or military department, supported by
the general government. Rev. D. E.
Butler who is a trustee of the insti
tution, will hold an educational con
gress here August 7 and 8. Among
the speakers who will take part in
the congress will be Dr. Geo. T. Shaw,
Presiding Elder I. N. Daniels, Rev. J.
F. Augustas and Rev. J. H. Ferribee,
and arrangements are being made to
have an address by Prof. Epperson
of Donnellson, la. A special musical
program to have the co-operation of
the Keokuk Colored Alumni associa
In commenting on the affair Dr.
Butler said: "I do not know of any
organization among negroes that is
doing more for the betterment of my
race, than the one with which my lot
Is cast. But for the church, the
school, and the Y. M. C. A. in the
community, the negro would all but
run amuck and so would any other
race. Talk about the spir'.t of antago
nism and race riot, but for these in
stitutions heaven alone knows just
what would take place.
"That element responsible for these
things, as everybody knows, Is made
up almost entirely of the lesser de
veloped and pestilential sort.
"The negro, as he is improved in
tellectually and morally will be less
disposed to crime and indolence, and
contribute a larger percentage toward
the civilization of our country. Our
department of missions and twenty
one schools are dedicated to this end.
"The total sum administered by
Wilberforce university last year alone
was $23,906.74. While the department
of missions administered $48,345.38,
much credit is due our white friends
who subscribed a large part of these
funds toward the uplift of my race.
"Our congress here will last two
days and we shall endeavor to make
its influence felt all over the entire
district—coming as it does when the
grand lodge of the International Order
of Twelve is in session here."
