Litti.k has been heard of the "negro
State of Oklahoma" of late, but a lew
misguided colored men met at Guthrie
on April S and issued a proclamation to
their brothers elsewhere to come to the
number of 100,(100 nnd "embrace this.
your last opportunity to secure lauds for
yourselves mid families." Man's inhu
manity to mnn is proverbial, but it is
particularly cruel for the destitute colored
men now in Oklahoma to invite hoics in
those fairly well off elsewhere that can
never lie realized, or to seek to make
thousands of their race as destitute lis
thev nre themselves.
0. W. Ciiii.iih, of the Philadelphia
Ledger, is one of the best known citizens
of this country. There is not the leust
doubt that it lay in his power to have
secured the Inst republican nomination
for the presidency. Hut he bore in mind
the exicricnce of his old friend, General
Grant, who had earnestly said one day :
'Childs, I would rather lie the proprietor
of the Ledger than President of the Uni
ted States. You are in for life, nnd you
win have it all youi own way."
Of Mr, Childs the philanthropist nil the
world knows well. Hut it by no means
knows all. Uvcry morning his mail is
burdened with begging letters, and his
untc-room crowded with beggars of every
tyic. He docs not lavish his money
without investigation, but he is a
princely giver, and only himself knows
the extent of hisgenerosity. A few years
ago he turned over to certain Philadel
phia charitable institutions the whole
handsome income, amounting to almost
$!i(,000, which he had derived as one of
the administrators of a vast estate. Mr.
Childs, of course, can nllbrd to be philnn
thropic, but that is not the keynote of
his philanthropy. He loves to give. "If
1 were asked," he once said, "the secret
of my supposed success, I would say the
doing good and bcimi kind to others. It
is so ensy to set out right in this world.
mid to form character by training one's
self to acts of generosity and kindness,
Presently it becomes natural to do good
and be unselfish. On the contrary, let a
boy be trained to keep nnd hoard, and
that is the end of his native humanity."

A meeting of master mechanics was
held in the third story of the Hendry
block Inst night for the purpose of con
sidering the demand for a nine hour dny.
J. M. Westall was mndc chairman, nnd
asked for the ideu. of anv present. Wm.
Houis spoke for Mr. J. A. Teniicnt, who
was unable to attend, and quoted him
as being opposed to nine hours' work

stated that he was opposed to it, as

of their pockets, and that is quite a con

the subject also.
