Racial hnte was manifested in most virulent form in the Haptlst church of the Epiphany, at Madison avenue nnil Sixty-fourth j street, yesterday afternoon, when the ! pastor, the Rev. Madison C. Peters, ! the Rev. Thomas Dixon, Jr., the author : of "The Clansman," and several negro ! clergymen, supported by several ne ; gro laymen, engaged in a spirited dis cussion of the negro problem. The severest comment of the clergy, niaii-lccturcr-novelist-pliiywrlght was that virtue in negro women was so .... rare that any consideration of It was r,,t II,, lllu nnrn uiinniAil 1 n tQ 1,11 ii i tin ii iiitii ,1.1. t. i...ivi . - evenly divided, one-half supporting him wltli an energy and fervor equal to that shown by the opposition. The . The Rev. Mr. Dixon was the chief l-HkT. and It was understood that 11 Wi,s "f th wwA '"' ns IW dnced by "The Clansman," that the plan came to have him on the same platform with leading negro preach ers and laymen. He wasted no time In getting into his subject, but with- ! out even a preliminary word, struck "" follows: "The only solution of the negro problem by which a race war within tills rcntnry can be avoided Is by a peaceful and friendly colonization of the African. This has never been tried seriously. President Lincoln would have accomplished this great task had he lived out his years.

Since then another forty years have nearly passed away and the nation Is face to face with the question "Can two races equally free, live in the same government?"

The burdens of re sponsibility Is largely upon the South, but the South sliould not be left to struggle under it unaided by the other sections of the Union, In which the end Is less and consequently more easily dealt with. We reproduce the opening Idea of Thos. White, in the Freeman, on the above subject.

A free population, ambitious to get the benefit of Its own labor and enter prise. Is the niaklon of any country. With freedom will come more general education and a great upraise In Mex ican life wi.i result. Hy way of con trast Mexico and Sweden and Norway offer an interesting study. Mexico, with peonage and restricted education, has a wonderful and rich variety of natural resources. Sweden and Nor way, with a odd and rather sterile country, have individual freedom, and are the only countries In the world In which every grown man can read and write. Therefore the Scandinavians have prosperity, good homes and a general and splendid civilization, while Mexico, with friemby climate and greut natural resources, lags behind. Hut the signs of advancement are many ami encouraging, and there Is every reason for taking a cheerful view of the future of our sister re public. San Francisco Call. Spread of Style In Arizona. Every symptom points to u ten dency to spread on style In Tomb stone. Among other instances In this direction the boys bought a pair of beautiful barber pole suspenders and presented them to the amiable dis penser who shoves the amber extract of cheerfulness over me mahogany of the Parlor saloon. He pronjptly donned the innovation, but claimed that he felt like he had a fence rail on each shoulder. Then when they be came overburdensome he would un button them and permit them to dan gle In front, but he t.nally got them down line enough to ro to church In.

Tombstone Inspector. Gatea a Good Spender. Report has it that John W. Gates Is making all the other plungers at Saratoga look small. Gates thinks and acts In thousands where the average man does the same things In dollar bills. He hardly recognizes small change when he sees It. His bets at the races are all up lu three figures, he pays a dollar for a shave anil tosses another dollar to the boy who shines his shoes. He buys a good dintieT for a large party at a time and gives the biggest tips ever heard of. The chances are that even with his hlx expenses he will break even or better on the present meet. At present h is away ahead of the game. New York a "Richeat" Rich. New York has the richest baby, the richest boy, the richest bachelor, the richest spinster, the richest married man nd the richest widow In the whole wide world. Parts of this bii? claim might be overthrown on close scrutiny but we continually hear of little John Nicholas Hrown, the rich est baby in the world: James Henry Smith, the richest bachelor; William Ziegh-T. Jr., the richest boy; Miss Stickncy, the richest spinster; Rocke feller, the richest of all, etc. Model Dairy Farm. Two brothers. Albert and Harry Fahenstock, have a model dairy farm at Quaker Bottom valley. In Baltimore county, and the other day they had the members of the Baltimore stock exchange out to look at it. The visit ors were driven over the C50 acres In wagons drawn by teams of eight nice ly matched gray Percheron horses. and they found the dairymen and the stablemen all neatly uniformed. It Is also reported that they found a scene of "unusual pastoral beauty." There are hills, valleys and tumbling splashing waters on the utg farm, anj the keynote of the management is or ganization and system. The result Is success. Recently at a private musicale, Rob ert Cuscaden played a Bethoven se lection which called forth this com ment from one of his gushing feminine admirers: "Perfectly heavenly!" I haven't heard that for a long time. The last time; was when lt was ren dered for me by a phonograph. Did you ever hear It on a phonograph, Mr. Cuscaden?" "No," said the violinist.

When your heart Is warm with love, Even for your enemies; When your words come from above, Not from where the venom la; When you aee the man entire, Not alone the faults he has; . Find a somewhat to admire Underneath the paltry mass Not till then, If you are wise, Will you dare to criticise. Amos R. Wells. Nice Old-Faahloned Folk. Senator Pettus of Albania, wears shirts made by his wife and socks which she has knitted. The old couple live In Selma when not In Washington, and new manners and customs have changed them little. Since their mar riage, sixty-two years ago, she has made all his linen sarments. Until about twenty years ago she adhered to the ways of her foremothers and spurn the flax herself. ' Now she finds her eyes are fallng and she buys the linen from a merchant In Mobile, but the remainder of the work Is her labor of love. As she talks to her guests, whether at home or In Washington, her fingers are busy with knitting. Mrs. Pettus has a remarkable memory and tells entertaining anecodotes In a quaint, old- fashioned w-". On every anniversary of their marriage the couple give a reception for the senate, and great Is the shwer of rifts. The above Is a casual thought giv en expression by one of our esteemed contemporaries. It shows the trend which Is fast developing among the Negro of the serveral sections.

Blow Too Much For Pat. While Pat Kern, a sturdy young Irishman of Philadelphia, was stand ing on a ladder cleaning windows a, lawyer approached and called out to him that an uncle living in Ireland bad died, leaving him $100,000. Pat promptly fell from the ladder at the shock. He was not hurt, however, and soon went back to his task. "When are you going to quit work?" was asked. "When I get the money," came the retort. REPARTEE AND ROMANCE. "Tell mc what it is about me That for you has such a charm." I was sure she couldn't doubt me When I answered her "My arm." Then she looked up with a wink that I Interpreted meant Haste, Saying: "If that's true, I think that We have little time to waist." "Clever girl," I murmured, "this Is Happiness-! Do you ugree?"
