Under the forceful gospel sermons by Dr. J. P. Howard, than whom the race has not produced a more successful evangelist, increas ingly large crowds are being drawn to the meetings and already a num ber of persons have been led to con fess Christ and others, who were on the back ground, have renewed their covenant. The Billy Sunday cam paign had a most wholesome effect upon other races, but our people were practically speaking, untouched. It is hoped that the coming of Dr. How ard to Denver will be the means of a great shaking up of our people here and will be the means of* adding to the membership of all of our church es. The Lord used Dr. Howard in a most remarkable way in St. Louis, Mo., where in a two mdmths campaign more than three hundred persons were received into the church. It is our prayer that the Lord will accom plish as much through him in Denver. Dr. Howard's sermon topics for to morrow will be as follows: 11:00 a. m., “God’s Great Love." 8:00 p. m., "Repentance." Since a great outpour ing of the public is expected at both services, comfortable seats can be as sured only to those who come early. Our Easter rally will be concluded tomorrow, when every member who has not already complied fully with his obligation, is expected to report his assessment in full. Remember, friends, that excuses are not negoti able. If you want to put your officers in position to pay off the church’s in debtedness, you must make a sacri fice. Be loyal to your colors. If you are Red. stand by Mrs. Daniel H. Wil liams, and if you are Blue, then rally to the call of Mrs. Mattie F. King.

THE ZION BAPTIST CHURCH. 24th Avenue and Humboldt. David E. Over, D. D., Minister. Our series of gospel meetings closed Tuesday night and Dr. Jones left Thursday for Colorado Springs, where he will spend Sunday, and then on to the Pacific coast. Undoubtedly the series has brought a great bless ing to Zion in deepening the spiritual life of the people. God used the ser mons of Dr. Jones to search and sift Zion as he has rarely done before. Many have been brought closer to the Lord and are prepared for a closer walk than they have ever known. Among those who came into the church, twenty-five were received for baptism. Mrs. Edwin Seldon, of Broadway Baptist church, one of the leading missionary workers of the city, ad dressed the ladies of the Mision So ciety last Thursday afternoon. Mrs. Hranton Tule, a field worker, who has spent about fiften years in Africa, was also present and gave a short address. With these two women of experience and i>ower present, the meeting was necssarily one of rich in terest and helpfulness. The pastor will preach Sunday morning from the subject, “The Word of God.’’ All the friends are invited to be present. The rite of baptism will be administered at the close of the service. Next week the activities of .the con gregation will take up the regular sctiedule. A full page of announce ments may be had front the Church Bulletin at. the Sunday service. Mr. Jesse Williams, son of Sister Priscilla Williams, who died last week, was buried from the church Tuesday afternoon. The family has the sympathy of the entire commun ity.

There has been much improvement among the sick of the congregation during the last few weeks. Among those who are yet confined are Moth er Roley, Sister Arbuckle and Sister Todd. Others are convalescent. Next Thursday night the famous Glee Club of Tuskegee Institute, Booker Washington’s school, will sing at Zion for the benefit of the Y. M. C. A. Every lover of music will be present. THE PEOPLE’S PRESBYTERIAN. E. 23rd Ave. and Washington St. Pastor, J. A. Thos-Hazell, S. T. B.

E. 5 p. in., "Man’s Chief End.” Amidst the inclemency of the weather, just about the time the peo ple began to gather, the cantata ren dered last Thursday night was all that the audience could have expect ed. Without exception there were sen timents of praise and satisfaction for the participants on the program. The cantata was a financial success. We take the opportunity through these columns to thank the people who con tributed to make the cantata such a success. The program will be repeat ed the first Sabbath afternoon in May. The choir will singT at Aurora Pres byterian church tomorrow night. The Rev. J. Mont Travis, Presbytery’s chairman of Home Mission work, is now supplying the church.

THE COLORED CITIZENS’ LEAGUE This organization, inaugurated on April 6th, 1915, has the best interests of the people at heart along indus trial, commercial and political lines, and In its declaration, pledges itself with the support of the people to es tablish strong, influential, clean, right eous and practical ways and means to assert our rights in accordance with the law and ever strive to gain the recognition which we merit as a whole, but which is being forfeited to us on account of the actions of some politicians in our city. There is at present among us a class of men who have a peculiar ten dency to turn every patriotic and other public movement into some un derhand political scheme to blindfold the people and carry out their selfish motives and desires. Such actions should be discouraged and frowned upon before they result in an open disgrace, as those who are guilty pos sess no honest interest in any cause launched for the benefit of the race and eventually sink to the element of destructive agents who pride in doing everything to impair the progress of things constructive. It is getting to such a state that even when a body of citizens resolve to stamp out this evil by calling a public meeting, represen tatives of this unfortunate class will appear in large numbers to disrupt, annoy aud make unintelligible by their continuous interruptions the proceed ings of the meetings. The time is therefore ripe when the community, tiring of this action, should begin to get rid of this class of people. If these same persons who are so anxious to further this immoral course would be so zealous as to exercise the same amount of honest care for the com mercial, industrial and political inter ests of their race by supporting race enterprises with money and not wind, establishing and patronizing business houses contribting to the upkeep of the church which helps spread civili zation, and not enjoy in their present unprofitable action the race would come in for betterment in an ennobl ing degree. No small clique of de crepit politicians represents the pub lic interest. They may have the right to choose own course in politics, but they should stick to politics and not be forever trying to deceive the public. No honest public movement need lack for followers, because it must first emanate from a trustworthy source, go before the public on its merits and not be the result of a pol icy born in a night and brought to light by some parasite. When our men schemed let them scheme for themselves. When they wish to be patriotic let them get rid of their sel fishness, get out of their narrowness and work with preness of thought and action for their race and country. This the Colored Citizens’ League pro poses to do and we trust may carry out their plan successfully. Brickler’B New Barber Shop is lo cated at 2208 Larimer street. Shave, 10.
