THE NEGRO CLUBS ARE A RUINA TION TO THE YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN OF KANSAS CITY. The Son, in lis last Issue took a stand againsl one of the greatest evils Kansas City has to battle with, and that. Is in regards to the negro clubs which entice the young men and wo men from their homes. The negroes will never be a race until our good negro citizens come out boldly against siich places which rrally art as boomerangs against the race. How many of my thousands of read ers deep down in their hearts condemn these places, bill have not the cour age to come out against them. Moth ers and fathers if you do not make a stand now you will regret it in after years, .lust last year one of these Individuals claimed that his place was a literary club for the benefit of the young men. Claiming that the pur Ikjso was to promote social, Intellec tual and the moral side of its members. The Intelligent negroes sat passively 1 by nnd allowed their positions and striving to be used to promote on of the greatest evils that the negro has to deal with. Thank God we have one stalwart preacher of the Gospel who Is not afraid to speak out against these places and that Is our own 110 tile Itev. Samuel llacote. Come 011 you strong minister of the Gospel, array yourself and begin buttle against these - damnable Institutions. No more hack sliding but let there be a washing of linen. Let the negro women arouse themselves in behalf of their wayward daughters and sous. Come .111 fathers and recognize this crucial period of our progress and do something for your race, .lust a little over a week ago Arthur Ashcraft, once a pupil of Lincoln school was shot to death In one of these places. Now what are we going to do to rid ourselves of these evils. There mint lie a division In this city. The good negro versiiH the bud ne gro. It is from these places that crime originates. A man loses all his money, feels down and out, and the first tiling you know a crime has been committed. Oh! Alnilgthy God, who shapes the destiny of man and rules the mighty universe, come down up on your chosen people at this critical time. Give the negroes power to com bat Us greatest evil. O! God! Will you come among us. Will you help the negro In his undying, crusade against these most damnable Institu tions, which ure a menace to our race. In reply to the credit Old Bon 1 Tillman Is Riving Bboker T. Washing ton for being great, his father har Ing been a white man, let me say here, that well thinking people know this to he a fact, nnd mothers and fathers have watched It, from tht rnrllest existence up until the pres ent time, that the traits of character co from the mother Into the male children, nnd the father Into the fe mnle children. Had Hooker T. Wash ington the traits of his father, he would have been a licentious charac ter, sneaking around in the southern Mates with white women. You can readily see why thff majority of our mixed-breed women can not be trust ed; it Is the traltf of the father. Thw hand that rocks the cradle Is the liuinl that rules the world. A NEGRO WOMAN. Healthfulness of Washington. While the claim can be truly made that Washington Is as healthful as the great majority of big cities, and Is becoming more so with the progress and more general acceptance of Bani- tary measures, Washington has" over come and Is overcoming some natural disadvantages. It Is , a question whether the Potomac country, with Its long summers, short winters, gen erally humid climate, great number of creeks and small rivers and wide marshes. Is naturally as healthful as the hills of New England and the cool, dry uplands of the west. The people who live In Washington, and whose ancestors have dwelt there for two centuries or so, defend the cli mate, and certainly about the usual percentage of people attain ripe old ge. Divorces are. said to bo moBt fre quent In small towns and villages. Per haps it is because gossip is most active in such places. It is somewhat surprising to learn that Finland, notwithstanding her po litical troubles, did a much larger for eign business la 1905 than In 1904. Her foreign commerce in 1905 was of the value of $99,584,400, consisting of $ir10.400 exports nnd $51,740,000 Im ports. The export Increaso over 1904 was $5,L'll.:tSti, and the Imports also iucrensed by $173,700. The largest Im ports were breadstuff. 706.fi 1 8,000 pounds. Most of the wheat flour sent in by Germany. Great llrilan anil Hen mark was of American origin. The chief l!i0.r export was lumber, valued at $j;i.!S9.!t()0, an Increase over 1904 of $ri,"0. Paper and wood pulp ex ported was worth $c,7:i5,700.

EVELENA BAIJWIN Pres. LU ELLEN WILLIAMS, Sec. LINCOLN INSTITUTE NOTES. Methods of Teaching the Industrial at Lincoln Institute, Dr. Benjamin f. Allen, President. Josephine S. Yates, department of English. Methods of teaching the Industries In Lincoln Institute, the Missouri State NormnI and college for negroes, are practical and approved and In ad dition, contain many original Ideas that may be accredited to Its progres sive and scholarly president Dr. B. V. Allen, who looks after every de tail of work In th Industrial depart ment, as well as elsewhere, with the most minute care. Every encouragement Is given the student to follow some Industry, In fact every student Is required to com plete several branches of industrial work during the course and thus Is he prepared to become a producer as well as a consumer. As nn aid to an in creasing zeal along Industrial lines, President Allen Is now giving a series of morning talks to the students. The fact Is, these talks are made by the administrative head to the en tire school, young men nnd young women alike, and outside of the class es in which there particular branche" are taught, helps to emphasize upon the mind of the average student, the value, dignity, and necessity of labor and to enforce the principle that be who would he a valuable citizen In American, or nny other progressive civilization, must be able and willing to do something well, very well.

The Son's great fight against the powerful Institutions of vice called clubs, which are carrying hundreds of negroes Into the vortex of hell's running stream. This paper backed j by the strong public opinion has en deavored to show to the people the great evil which has arisen in their midst by allowing these clubs and gambling dens to run loose and carry down to Ignonlmoua degradation of the young men In this community. At no time duflng the history of the negro race alnce the civil war has our people been threatened by such a calamity. At no time during the his tory of our race has the young negro girls been exposed by being thrown Into contact with individuals who are fresh from these dens and seduced them to leave their families and home to follow the evil ways of sin. What nre the negroes coming to If they don't take a stand? A great tirade is being raised. This la the kindling of a flame that shall sweep the city. Nero burnt the imperial city of Rome and sent the eagles of war to destroy the Christian bands in Rome. But Christ said, "My word shall live on." Empires and kingdoms might fall and perish away. Through all the centuries one great command prevails, It Is the will of God. Take courage, oh, humble negroes, send out your legions of war and like the Goths In their terrible march on Rome de stroy the entire palaces where vice I Is sapping out our very manhood. A reform wave Is sweeping the city and In Its mad rush let it settle upon clubs and dens. Forty years ago the negro was giv en his freedom, and because of his Ignorance nnd weakness he has been the prey of every evil scheme. Thank God he Is coming Into bis own. It Is written that the clubs must go. It Is thn hnndwrltlne on the wall. O let us pray In 'unison that the great spirit may settle upon us. Good Ixrd deliver us from the entwining arms of evil. Will the Immortal Savior send the angels of war to devastate and bring destruction to these great evils to our race. In the Bhadows of thy great walls, and in the arms of thy loving kindness let us have pro tection. O. lrd, will Thou hear the prayer of thousands of negroes and send unto us deliverance? F. J.
