The Colored Baptist Convention.
This great representative body of
the colored Baptists in this State held
their annual convention in the colored
Baptist church, this city, during last
week. The representation was pro
bably three hundred delegates or
more. They were as a body a very sub
stantial and respectable people, and
among them a large number of edu
cated Intelligent ministers. Engaged
throughout the United States in the'
educational and mission work of the
colored church wero representatives of
ability and earnestness. An hour spent
watching their deliberations impressed
us that the negro in the South is mak
ing progress?and he must climb the
ascont towards civilization with In
creased momentum, with the aid the
State is now giving him in liberal
educational appropriations. We take
it that the negro problem, as it is
called, will be worked out slowly, in
the next two centurlo?, and under pres
ent conditions few of us will bo hero to
boar witness to tho solution.
At tho convention wo heard several
muluttoe8 discuss right ably the mat
ters before tho body; wo wero anxious
to hoar a specimen of tho coal black,
gonulne African typo, but were dis
appointed. Rev. J. P. Brookington,
quito dark, of Darlington, presided.?
Ho had a gavel of unusual size and
had to handle it with much industry,
as these 6ons of Africa, aro imitatlvo
of the whites, in their deliberative
bodies, as notoriously olsowhero. A
dozen would bo on legs at once and
clamoring for a hearing. Points of
order and parliamentary tactics wore
much resorted to. Tho Methodists of
the colored church tendered its use to
tho body during its sessions.
Among the well known characters
attending wo mot Jonkius of the col
ored orphanage and school in Charles
ton. Ho will bo romembored as tho
negro, who carried fourtoon of his lit
tle blacks to London during last sum
mer and undertook to givo concerts
and other entortainments in tho streets
of that city. But tho polico of that
city thought otherwise and tho result
was tho whole, band was stranded and
helpless on a "foreign shore." How

thing; writers and statisticians are
constantly arraying tho property on
which negroos aro paying taxes. Thoy
aro probably eight millions in tho
South and thoy have on joyed thirty
years of freedom. Their property
holdings even under tho conditions ex
isting are not largo. They aro not a
thrifty race and not inclined to save. It
must bo set down as a fact that modern
civilization is based on the talent for
shekels and tho nogro can nover figure
as a social, moral or political factor
until ho has loarned tho lesson of get
ting hold of a dollar and making it do
tho work of human hands. Tho white
people of this gonoration, North and

this country will aid the nogro in

In Memory of Little Fred.
One of our saddest duties is to chron
icle the death of one young, handsome
in person and universally beloved. The
heart shrinks from expressing its emo
tions in words that aro inadequate to de
scribe its sorrow. About three weeks
ago Fred McElroy left his father's home
to undergo medical treatment in Chicago,
and being kindly cared for at the home
of his uncle, under the care of an emi
nent physician, hopes were entertained
that soon little Fred would return home
and gladden tho hearts of his family
and friends with the announcement that
he had been cured. But, as the untimely
frost withers the boantiful flower, ft
pleased God to permit the last enemy,
Death, to lay his icy hand upon gentle
Fred, and last Saturday morning at the
home of his nncle, Mr. O. C. Hammond,
in the city of Chicago, Llttlo Fred's spir
it took its flight to Him who gave it.
Fred was fifteen years and six months
old the day of his death. Possessing a
mind of no ordinary intelligence, he was
his father's hope and his mother's joy.
His body was embalmed and in the care
of his grand-father reached Waterloo on
Monday afternoon, looking perfectly na
tural. His funeral was preached from
the Baptist cbnrch Tuesday morning, af
ter which the remains were followed, to
the cemetery to await the general resur
rection. It was a touching scene, when
his schoolmates gathered around nim to
look for tho last time on his peaceful
face, many of them weeping as if their
hearts were broken. His pall hearers
were his classmates?they filled up his
f;rave, and the girls completely covered
t with beautiful flowers, artistically ar
ranged into wreaths and crosses.
The sympathy of the entire communi
ty goes out to the grief-stricken family,
and our prayer is, Bs merciful, O Lord I
and grant thorn that priceless boon that
with him they may have a happy re
union on Resurrection Morn.
Why mourn? Nay, rather rejoice I
that they have in angel boy to hold the
gate ajar and greet thorn first in Heaven.
