snow was falling In great flakes and
no doubt Blllie was thinking of the
flowers and the fog, but a "Hello

makes him loved by the boys. Being
here on Fraternal business that re
quired both tact and diplomacy, Billlo
was refusing numerous requests for
his society. We went to hear him
speak on Sunday night at the A. M. E.
church. His subject was "Unity" and
he spoke with an eloquence that sur
prised. We knew he was a wizard
with the pen. but never before that
he was the equal of his famous broth
er, J. Frank, on the platform. Grand
Exalted Ruler, McMeaheu, could not
have picked a man more qualified to
adjust difficulties and we are sure
everything will be right. Blllie asked
to be remembered by the boys Doc

Moore, a Negro waiter who was elect
ed a member ot the Missouri house

urday told his Republican colleagues
in a session at the Planters hotel
that he expected to accept the advice
of friends to "sit qiuetly and look on
during the proceedings of the Fifty-
first general assembly at Jefferson
Moore, whose district Includes the
"silk stocking" wards in the west end
of St. Louis, did not arrive at the
hotel until after the represeutatves
had finished their dinner. He was
until recently a waiter at the City
He was introduced in his regular
turn by Lieut. Gov.-elect Hiram
Lloyd, whose call for the Republican
house members to come here to "get
acquainted" was answered by only
about 25 members outside of St.
Louis. There was a generous ap
plause as Moore rose to his feet.
Gave Meeting Coloring.
"I suppose you fellow representa
tives are thinking that I would have
a bit of stage fright in appearing be
fore yau, said Moore. "I am placed
in a peculiar, yet a distinguished posi
tion by having been the first man of
color elected to sit In the Missouri
legislature. I was agraid that I might
not get here Saturday, but for fear
that the meeting would not have the
proper coloring, as Mr. Lay has so
beautifully put it, I am glad to be
with you. (Lay is the representative
of Crawford county and during a
short speech had referred to the meet?
ing as having the "proper coloring.")
'I probably have received more ad
vice than any other representative or
representative-elect," continued Mooro
I have been advised to sit qiuetly
and look on. I think that it is good
"I want to cooperate with you mem
bers in seeing the complete program
of the Republican party carried out
In Missouri. The raising ot our edu
cational standards Is probably the
greatest problem which confronts
the general assembly."
Tribute From O'Fallon.
Rep. Sam F. O'Fallon, of Holt coun
ty, who probabdy will be ro-elected
speaker ot the house, in a speech
paid a rather glowing tribute to the
Negro member-elect. r
"I hope the Negro member will not
feel out of place because he is the
first one to servo with the white
members," said O'Fallon. "It is only
through tho Republican party that he
can serve In the Missouri legislature
I am glad that he Is hero."
