BISHOP A. GRANT.
Who Is now at the head of the Douglas Hospital and who Is the in
stigation of bringing Booker T. Washington to Kansas City. It will be
hoove every negro in the two cities to go and hear the great leader at
Convention Hall on the 4th of May.
THE DEFENCELESS NEGROES
LYNCHED.
Two of them Declared Innocent.
Around the statue of the Goddess of
Liberty at Springfield, Missouri cen
ters one of the most revolting trage
dies ever recorded in the annals of
crime. The negro men were lynched
and burned on the night of the 14th
of April. Two of the unfortunate men
were charged with attacking a white
woman and her escort and the other
one was charged with murder.
The tragedy stands all the more re
volting by reason of the fact that the
police officials and others declare
that the men were not guilty of the
crimes with which they were charged.
The sheriff was warned that a mob
was forming but he laughed at the
idea. He held his position. Other
officials of peace were conspicuous
by their absence. In the meantime the
doors of the jail were broken down,
and three defenceless negroes were
sacrificed to a bloodthirsty crowd of
hoodlums. In the midst of their car
nage they danced like savages until
the human frames had been reduced
to ashes. And then on Easter morn
the younger generation, the little
girls and boys on their way to Sun
day school searched the ashes for
relics that they might keep until per
chance they reach the age of maturi
ty when they could refer back to
brutal scenes provoked by mere cast
prejudice. What a startling travesty
upon civilization! Every chapter ad
ded to this already complete volume
of crime gives new features of bru
tality and savagery. The tide must
change. There Is a remedy and the
good thinking and fair-minded people
of this country will have to apply it
sooner or later.
LINCOLN INSTITUTE NOTES.
"Missouri has looked well to the
educational opportunities of the chil

provided In Lincoln Institute at Jef

from that of the others only as the
different needs and attitude of the
race seem to require. , The courses of
instruction are broad, the arrange
ment is liberal and the faculty con
sists of the best colored educators the

A Swede and an Irishman were out
walking together when a storm came
up. The rain fell violently. They

Corks from Waste Paper,
A remarkable Invention has Just
been perfected and patented. It Is a
machine which makes corks out of

by leading chemists and the largest
users of corks, and It Is claimed for
them that they are far superior to the
old stylo 111 every way.
