NEGROES WANT OLD HOSPITAL. Are Afraid n Arrangements Will Made for Them in New. be Kansas City negro phyhlclans nre again agitating to a slight extent the old proposition to have the present hospital building mndelnto a separate department for negroes, with negro physicians and nurses In charge. Not withstanding the agreement reached some months ngo by a committee ocm- posed of Drs. T. C. Vnthank, J. E. Per ry, J. E. Dibble, J. S. Shannon and J. N. Birch, representing tho Negro Med ical Society of Kansas City, nnd Alder men Young, Eaton, Greene, Woolf and Mayor Beardsley, city council hospital committee, the negro doctors nre somewhat dissatisfied and mny ask that the council reopen the matter. By the terms of this agreement a negro ward Is to be established in the new general hospital with internes and nurses of that race, ilere, It was promised, the negro physicians might take their patients and hold suitable clinics, with quarters ample for all their needs. There Is a well defined suspicion nniong the negro doctors that In the bustle of rearrangement this agree ment will be forgotten. "So far as we Know," said Dr. Vn thank last night, "the pronuse oMhe council committee will be kept. "But we have not observed any very mark ed degree of activity towards carrying It out. and many .if us are Inclined to believe we shall be left holding the bag when the readjustment Is made. Just now If one of us hns tho ampu tation of a finger to perform, he must take his patient across the line to Kansas Cltv. Kan. Naturally we are very much worried as to what will b done for us here after in the matter. Wo con not see ev n yet any real rea son why we should not be giveu the old hospital ns we asked at first. "At least 90 per cent of the negro cases In Kansas City are handled by negro physicians. We have no clini cal facilities whatever, and Hit few- facilities for taking rare of thoso of our race who may be In need of suita ble hospital care at least for those of tho 90 per cent we have under our charge. We shall be satisfied if we are given the quarters at the new building we were promised. I nm sure, however, another ottempt will be made to secure the old building for our purposes." A number of eouncllmen who were asked about the matter evaded the question yesterdav, declaring they had too many present problems to worry them to bother about this until It be- came necessary. It is generally be lieved that the lu-w building will be ready for occupancy In January or February. CLINICS FOR NEGROES. The request of the local negro phy sicians that a ward for negro patients, tvi be under the care of physicians nnd nurses of their own race, be estab lished In the new general hospital is so reasonable and just that the muni cipal authorities bhould give hearty consent. Indeed, it would not be un reasonable in view of the large percen tage of the negro population to set aside the old hospital building for the exclusive use of negro practitioners and their patients. If it is true, ns as serted by a prominent negro physi cian, that 90 per cent of the negro tfises In Kansas City are bandied by WL-m Dhvsleians. It is not oulv uniust. hlll dangerous to the public health anil safety, to deny these physicians an op lOrt unity to add to their proficiency hi- having a suitable place to hold clinics and provide proper facilities f r their patients who may become a public charge. The higher the stand rrd of skill among the negro physt cns the less will be the chances of fti epidemic of smallpox or oilier con tagious diseases originating in the ne- o population alii spreuding over the (.'J still higher comiderntion than the selfish one of protecting the while population from cuitagion Is I he mor al obligation on the part ot the admin istration to give the negroes a fair share of the benefits of public chari ties, such ns the general hospital. ain to do everything possible to uplift and promote the moral and social welfare of their race. The charge has been made in some communities, and tfppnr ently with consldornbls truth, that the negroes are crowded out of the profes sions and are forced to confine their energies mainly to menial and me chanical occupations. Kansas City. however, has hitherto given no grounds for such a charge, as the num ber of negro physicians, teachers and members of other professions clearly evidences: but the further duty Is In cumbent upon the city administration to afford a fair opportunity fur tin negro physicians to hold clinics and qualify themselves as far as possible for the safe and successful practice of their profession.

Advertisements A Message of Peace Standing on the eve of n great cam paign one can catch the glimmer ami awn of a new era, of a great politl- al contest. Way down In Bcthlcham was Porn a Na.arene, the wise men a me from the East and beholding the beautiful babe said, "Let there be Peace on earth, food will to men." The sun shone with more splendor upon the black people sending out a message of peace. Pence Is the house hold word of truth. It is the beautiful mblem of a nation's liberty, the god des of peace is more beautiful than the goddess of war. lie who lights with a sword shall perish, but he who chooses peace as his couinuio! shall endure, yet I doubt not thro' the ages one Increasing purpose runs, and the thoughts of men are broaden d by the process of the sun. Gazing thro' the landscape you can catch a gleam of n golden thread running thro' the centuries pointing to God's master piece the world of peace and a perfect hiliatlon. The great conclave ot individuals streaming onward towards the great political field have met in a mighty clash, but troin this confusion great men have risen up to lake barge of nlTairs. From all sides are coming leader, who are taking the people and teaching them to lift up their heads higher in the air. l.el the secession ami virile among Hie lie groes In Kansas City cease.

Peace Is a mighty sword along side of sist'T truth, which cause men lo tremble and to turn pale; a use men to choose God as their leader, and the Bible as their sword; cause them to he lilted from the lowly I it li K of humility, to the higher planes of leadership and generalship. There Is no living force within the confines of this universe which can stop the mighty army of peacemakers. LINCOLN INSTITUTE NOTES.
