Programme of Music.
On last Sunday evening at the A. M.
E. church occurred a very interesting
Sacred Concert. Before the first strain
of music was heard all the seats were
occupied and imany had to stand, It
can certainly be said of this choir, its
singing and its music is apropos. All
those who admire the forward policy
in music will welcome the announce
ment when this choir will give a Sac
red Concert. The singing was excell
ent from start to finish, although some
of the music was very difficult as well
as new, yet they handled it with ease.
The Dumas Club supported the choir
with credit to themselves, they delight
ed the audience with their sweet mu
sic. The choir and the Dumas Club
have both made splendid advancement
under the leadership of Proilessor Ilolt

ing his ability as a musical, director,
that doubt was all removed Sunday and
the impressiveness of each singer added
mueh to their success.

addresses responded to in a very pa
thetic way by Prof. Holt. Of course
the club rendered several selections.

About one week ago in visiting one of
my neighbors where a funeral took
place, I had been visiting the home
for several weeks because I thought
I was needed, 1 did not stand back
the family was not my color. I dressed
and laid out the child, even if it was
not my color, I went and showed res
pect and christianty that is what I call
I was fortunate enough to meet a
sister Deaconess at the funeral she
came and bought a bouquet of flowers
and I had been arranging flowers on
the casket anp sister Deaconess said,
what has that colored women got white
strings on her bonnet for, oh, how she
disgusts me was the remark, sister
I)eacone6s made she went out doors
where the family and the other people
were and said, it just disgusts me to
see that colored women with white
ties on her bonnet, why don't she
wear blue or red ties. I am not so Well
trained as others profess to be but
still I thank God I am able to carrj'
the name of Jesus where it is needed
praise God. If I had of had on a
bandana handkerchief on ray head and
a pair of mocassin on my feet 1 suppose
she wculd of come to me and said how
do you do Auntie, but be cause my
bonnet corresponded with hers she
turned her head several different times
still I did not think it correspond with
hers so much for hers had on wash
silk and mine only had mull strings
well 1 have a straight through ticket
ticket and I am going through no mat
ter how many steps some one else takes
just like mine either white or black.
When she came in 1 was delightcb 1
thought I would learn some informa
tion from sister deaconess. 1 expected
to see her receive the minister and in
troduce him to the parents of the de
ceased child at my astonishment the
minister had to go out doors and ask
some little children what was the
child's name and ago. No more at
present from M. Callander to sister
Deaconess Humphry, for further infor
mation call at 909 Western Avenue.
I would be pleased to see you, do'nt
be afraid of me becaue my face is color

Last week was chronicaled the sad
passing from this earth, of Prince Bis
marck of Germany, one of the
greatest statesman that the 19th
century has produced. He was
greater then the "Grand Old Man"
of England,tWm. Gladstone the En
glish Liberal leader, because he lifted
Prussia up to her present strength by
his iron will power. He has made
the German Empire from a loose
weak league of states until to-day
she is one of the strongest Kingdoms
of the earth mighty in her indiviual
strength. To tell you his life, would
be to reproduce the history of the
German Empire for the past fifty
years. History, newspaper, or poet
can ever tell of his wonderful
acheivements upon the battlefield,
in the Halls of the German Council
or his impression on the world.
He stood in the public arena van
quishing his enemies and encourag
ing his friends by the po„wer of his
iron will and supurb eloquence. To
study the life of Pri nceBismarck or
Gladstone is a wonderful striking
object lesson of human possibilities
for every youth. He made nations,
moulded a destiny for his country,
and all Europe has been blessed by
his presence. He has fallen, the
last of the mighty oaks to fall. To
day all Germany mourns his loss,
likewise the civilized world.

of the finest passenger vessels that
ever entered San Francisco harbor.
The price paid for her has not been
made public, but it must be about
8750,000,00 as she was thoroughly over
hauled and refitted a year ago at Glas

fastest ship afloat in 1880, being built
in 1879 by John Elder and company of
Glasgow, and it is 400 feet long 40 feet
broad, 30 feet deep and of 3147 tons
burden. She was the center of attrac
tion in the harbor and to-day will doubt
less be overran with visitors. The
Arizona left Seattle Monday at 0:10 P.
M. and made an average of fifteen
knots on the trip down. She has no
cargo nor ballast except 1300 tons of
coal for her own use. The steamer
has six decks-hold, aslop, 'tween main
hurrican beckone and bridge. Her
troops-carrying capacity is at least 1,
700, there being a great aeria of avail
able space for berths 'tween decks.
The aft cabin accommodates over 00
passengers and is lighted with electri

with solid marble tubs, silver faucets,

OUR DUTY TO TIIE
Why should we squibb]e nbout the
Philippines? Why should we try to
evade our responsibilities? Why should
we shrink from the position? We said
we would maintain when Dewey start
ed to the Philippines. The opeople of
the Philippines expected us to claim
the fruits of Dewey's victory, our own
people would be unwilling for the Pre
consider any policy that would
shirk our full duty to our Philippines
This is not the time for us to take a
backward step nor is it the time to
head timid counsel even though it
should come from the President's Cab
net. Every one understood that war
and victory would bring new obliga
tions as well as new responsibilities
with this all before us, we had the cour
age to beg in the war, shall we now
take the courage to meet all obligation
incurred bv the war? Afters300 years
of Spanish rule over the natives of
these islands, can those people expert
any security for their life or property
from tho hands of the Spanish officials
when Dewey destroyed the Spanish
controler in the Philippines the natives
welcome the Americans as the fore
runners of a new era. Since May 1st.
they have been conducting a success
ful war against Spain.
Shall we now surrender these people
to the mercy of the men against whom
they have made war in our interest.
We would say no a thousand times, the
United States should free them from
the oppressive rule that have held
them for three centuries and again our
commercial interest in the far East
need protection. How can we accom
plish t.iat end better than keeping
these islands? It would open a new
markets for us, why cast aside such an
opportunity that lies within our grasp
to do our duty.

gave it such remedies as are usually
given in 6uch cases, but as nothing
gave relief, we sent for a physician and
it was under his care for a week. At
this time the child had been sick for
about ten days and was having about
twenty-five operations of the bowels
every twelve hours, and we were con
vinced that unless it soon obtained re
lief it would not live. Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy
was recommended, and I decided to try
it. I soon noticed a change for the bet
ter by its continued use a complete
cure was brought about and it is now
perfectly healthy.—C. L. BOGOS, Stump*
