"I dined with Charles Dana Gibson t Prince's restaurant lo I-ondon dur ing the season." said a Chicagoan. "The lofty, spacious dining-room waa filled with women In pale-gowns, their hstr uncovered and their arms and necks bare, and though these women were very fashionable, very aristocratic, they smoked cigarettes with their coffee as they watched the bioscope pictures that went o at one end of the big room and as they lis tened to the singing that went on at the other.

"I believe In the newspaper," said Mr. Alexander, the singing evangelist. "To illustrate their carrj iug power, lot sue tell a story: "A newspaper, published in England, one day carried in its columns a ser mon by the late Rev. Charles H. Spur geon. That newspaper found its way to Australia, and eventually was part of a bundle that waa thrown under the counter ot a store to wrap up packages wMh. In course of time it was reached and Inclosed some articles that were sent to the house of a moat ungodly man. He unwrapped the goods, and U he did so the heading of the ser mon struck his eye.

The evidences of progress around nie. the prosperity of the which I have observed in the South, ill convince me that there is here a pirit of mutual helpfulness between the races. This Is gratifying and reassuring to those ot us who desire this better era. The elimination of selfishness on me part of both races should be sought after. The economic phase of the question should not be confused with the racial phase. It may be diflicult lor some to al ways realize that race prejudice should have no part In business re lations. Wherever the Negro makes himself competent and worthy his color should not bar him from re munerative employment and protec tion of the laws In the performance of his tasks. The better element of the white race should and do look with favor aud satisfaction, upon the efforts of the sturdy progressive Negro, lie in turn asks and should receive their protection from nny ills which mav be visited upon him be cause of his race. Feeling secure he will more industriously strive to be come a factor for the commercial and industrial uplift, of his community. The sum total of the progress of his locality will be hindered or helped by his individual status. So then, the protection of the laws, the opportun ity to thrive should be guaranteed him on the one hand and should be accepted by him on the other. This interdependence of tho white man and the Nero must be acknowledged by a'l who see the right and strive for the same. I am always optimistic with regard to the final outcome of this iiestio:i. The patience, industry, fidelity, hope fulness and splendid endeavor of the Negro through long generations aiv an earnest of the indestructibilitv which always counts in the lives ot nations. These qualities have always made for the splendid triumph of the American white man and I believe the better natures of a people who have thus succeeded will be appealed to amelioration of ail untoward condi tions and the betterment of all hu manity.

Cotigrcgationalist. Lucid, But Wrong. When the steam engine was invent ed a learned Englishman wrote a book In which he set forth his theory that It would be impossible to propel a ves sel across the ocean by steam power. The writing was lucid, the reasoning was correct, but the premises were wrong, and the first volume of this ex cellent work that came to America was brought over in a steamboat, thereby demonstrating that one fact may carry away a volume of theory. Those who advocate that the Ne gro should not be educated indirect ly speak for more jails, mo.e repres sive laws and more crimes. To educate out of the ignoble into the noble, from the lower to the higher, from narrowness to broader vision, from badness to goodness is the supreme duty of all who see the light. I'nbiased educators, statesmen and publicists of the highest order are everywhere arguing for an ' enlight ened citizenship which will Include the Negro. In a country such as ours, where bayonets do not contra!, where the ballot is sovereign, where law is King, nnr Republican form of Government Is protected and secure when civic virtue of the highest or der Is in the ascendant. It was an Inspiring sight a few days ago to see Theodore Roosevelt, the President of the I'nlted States; Andrew Carnegie, the phllantropist; James llryce, the diplomat, and James R.

This han- plness is caused by the consumma tion of the long pending negotiations to unite with the mother jurisdiction No subject relating to Pythianlsm has been watched more closely and no question has created such univer sal interest as that of union. For years Supreme Chancellor S. W. Starks has worked patiently aud faithfully to bring about the desired end. It required a camnaien of ertn. ation and this was made. When the Pythians of this jurisdiction were en lightened and shown the truth situa tion the work was done. Grand Chancellor Geo. A.

At 8 o'clock Thursday evening he met Grand Chancellor Watty and his cabinet, which consists of the otlicers of the Grand Lodge, and the final transfer was made and it was proclaimed that from that time henceforth and foreverniore the Grand Lodge Knights of Pytl.las of the State of Maryland and DMrict of Columbia would be subordinate to the Supreme Lodge of N.

It was past one o'clock a. m. when the party reached the beautiful dining room of the Myrtle. This ta bic was laden with all the luxuries afforded by Baltimore's splendid mar ket.
