PHCSS OF THE MISSOURI STATESMAN
French Sketch of Booker Washing
ton. From Le Matin (Paris).
Mr. Booker Washington hrs
been two clays in Paris. As every
one knows, he is the first "colored
man" who has had the privilege of
sitting at the table of a President of
the United States, that of Mr.
Roosevelt, and the row raised for
a time in America by this important
event may be remembered.
It was in the apartment he oc
cupies in one of our great Paris
hotels that Mr. Booker Washington
was kind enough to receive us
yesterday. A face with a very
light-colored skin, marked by a
delicate mouth, with neither beard
nor mustache, surmounted with
short hair with very little kink,
and lighted up by eyes of extra
ordinary brilliancy, which close
when thoughts are not to be
revealed; a frank countenance, ex
tremely intelligent and strong
willed; an expression sometimes
almost hard, sometimes very gentle ;
a general appearance of solidness
and energy joined to great kind
ness ; medium stature, well set up;
a rather small foot ; a soft, grasp
ing hand, agreeable to the touch,
the pressure of which varies ac
cording to circumstances, but is
always sprightly and significant
such is the portrait of the "great
negro" on whom we called.
Bora on a Virginia plantation,
the negro who later was to be with
so much sensation the guest of Mr.
Roosevelt, after emancipation be
gan to earn a living for himself and
his mother under great difficulties.
"It is said that you do not know
how old you are?" we asketl.
"That is true. The statement
BOOKER T. WASHINGTON. CEO

(By Courtesy of the Columbia Herald.)
that I whs born in Virginia is cor
rect, but I only know that I am
'about' 44 years old."
"How far back can you remem
"From the time that I Was about
8 years old."
"IJow did you get your name
"That is an o)d Virginia name.',
"I assumed that."
"Have you nol been called also
"That's what my mother used to
Then we drew out the story of
our amiable interlocutor's first re
collection, that of being waked up
from his sleep in the middle of the
night to eat his share of a chicken
which his mother had stolen for
him. Mr. Booker Washington
then repeated the tale of his going
to Hampton, of his founding
Tuskege, of the objects of that in
stitution, and of his aims for the
future of the negroes, with all of
which the readers of Le Matin are
When questioned about the pro
posed cxoih.s of the negroes from
the United States to the Soudan or
some other part of Africa, he de
clined to answer.
"I shall reply to no question you
may ask touching on politics or on
President Roosevelt. That is one
of my hubits."

The talk of a negro political
party is not only absurd, but foolish
The negro should not be a slave to
any one political party, he should
work to vote for his own as well as
his country's interest. Vote the
ticket which he knows will be of
help to him and his race if it wins,
but by no means should he en
deavor to organize a party of his
Human societies may sometimes
make mistakes and in their efforts
to "do good" for the so called un
fortunates often leave them heart
broken. The seperaling of chil
dren from their- mother because it
is decided that she is not capable of
rearing them, may seem alright
from a sociological point of view,
but yet there is a visible heartless
ness in such. For no matter how
poor or unfortunate a woman may
become, the love for her children
remains the same. The pleadings
of the unfortunate woman in the
Columbia p61ice court recently,
when her children were about to be
taken from her is enough to con
vince any human being, that other
assistance might be rendered that
would be far more helpful than
forcibly taking the loved ones.
