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.

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. Let even
parjicular and individual negro havi
one common purpose in view, striving
or peace. 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.

months ago waged warfare, now all

the Lord said, "Let there be light and
there was light, and lie spoke to the
llillowous Ocean and silliness reigned

Peter, come e unto your master as
tho' he spoke It today. The same ex
pressions hold true as landmarks of
liidefinability. something tangible from
whence lo proceed. The Son fought
men to purge away their faults lo
make them stronger leaders nnd to
put them ,in their proper status In
this community. Oh would that we
had ten million tongues and ten mil
lion voices proclaiming for tip'
same great object Peace. We waul
peace, we want p.aec. We want peace
among our people because there is a
