PAGE FIVH WOODMRlf OF UNION HOLD MKKT IN HOT SPRINGS. (By A. N. P.) Hot Springs, Ark., Sept. 16. Several special tralna and extra cars brought upward of a thousand delegates and visitors to the city to attend the sev eral sessions of the Woodmen of Un ion at Its annual Supreme , Session which opened here last Wednesday. Mayor Delivered Strong Welcome, Mayor H. A. Jones of Hot Springs delivered a strong address of wel come. His statement that It was his purpose to be Mayor of all the people was amply borne out in the fine spirit of good will and understanding be tween the two races In the city. The Itnpld Cirowth Hevrnled. The "hltfh spots" of the Session In cluded the niugnlficent address by lr. K. A. Kendall, the Supreme Pres ident and the splendid report of tho Supreme custodian, John L. Webb. The Woodmen of Union operate In eleven states and during the fiscal year JtiHt closed collected from all sources $284,173.20. an Increase of 30, 000 over the previous year Mr. Webb's report also included reference to the $100,000.00 Bath House which has been paid for. When It was shown that this and other real estate transactions had been done without a single as sessment of the members there could be heard on all sides words of warm est praise for the highly efficient leadership of the Supreme Custodian. Such an achievement Is unexampled in fraternal circles. In his annual addreBS, Mr. Webb emphasized the Importance of thrift, of better race relations and the nec essity for better living and educa tional conditions in the rural districts. Mr. Webb told of having vlsltod the closing exercises of a school some weeks ago where the graduating class of some twenty members had only three boys. "That condition." he said, Is entirely too prevalent and it shows a deplorable lack of attention to the education of our boys. Negro enter prises are springing up every day and there is a constant and insistent demand for competent, well trained young men Your mothers and fath ers owe it to yourselves, to your children and to vour race to Insist upon your boys attending school and completing their educathm." William H. Holtzclaw, Principal and founder of the Vtlea Institute In Mis sissippi who was a schoolmate of John 1j. Webb at Tuskegee Institute, lellv ered a stirring address on race pride at thc.Thursduy evening session. Hooker T. Washington llrniemherwl. The Influence of the life of Hooker T Washington upon this organization was seen In the frequent references to him and to his work. The bare mention of his name by the several speakers, which was always done with evident reverence, brought forth ap plause from the audience as well, as many earnest nnd sincere tributes. The Supremo Lodge Session took of ficial cognizance of the Itookcr T. Washington monument which will take place at Tuskegce Institute April 6th, 1921 and elected the Su preme President. Dr. K. A. Kendall and the Custodian, Mr. Webb as the official representative of the order. Webb's Klne Leadership. John L. Webb graduated from Tus kegce Institute, where he learned the carpenter's trade and later did con tracting and building both in Mem phis and Yazoo City, Mississippi. The Woodmen of Union was founded at Natchez, Mississippi, and for a num ber of years operated in only one state When iMr. Webb was per suaded to accept the Custodian-. ship of the oraer in u w receipts were $82.00. "It is nothing short of a miracle what this man has accomplished In these five years years Is the general expression heard around these parts when the name of Webb Is mentioned. They say " ebb did It" and Mr. Webb says whatever suc cess 1 have had I owe to Booker T. Washington.'" ItOYAl. CHM'I.K II A Ml lilVKH I'O.V CKHT. (Ily A. N. P.) Memphis. Tenn , Sent. 15.

Bir mingham railroad men displayed con siderable Interest In reports received from Memphis and Nashville to the effect that the Pullman Company has plans under way whereby Pullman conductors are to bo replaced by Nu gro porters, to collect fares and per form other duties on many runs. It was stated in thfsn reports that this experiment has been inaugurated on a number of lines In the North and is now being tried out in a quiet way In the South. Memphis reports Indicate that at tention was called to the practice by the strenin. m protest of persons liv ing along Out Tennessee Central Rail road, who, It Is understood, have warnod the state railroad and utili ties commission that they will not tolerate it. K. J. Carten, representative of tbe Pullman Cmpony in Birmingham, is at present on his vacation, but W A. Keed, who is acting In Mr. Cartcn's place, stated that he had not re ceived any advices from tue Pullman Company on the point,. although he had heard of the reports emanating from Memphis. Other railroad offi cials declared that they did not be lieve any such rule would be made effective In this territory. It was pointed out, however, that It has been the custom from time to time in the past on -branch lines, where only one parlor car was at tached to trains, to let the porter attend to the collection of fares and other duties, but under the di rection of the conductor of such train. In the reports from Nashville, it is stated that six Pullman conductors may be dropped Sept. 1, and it is stat ed that four of these run between Nashville and Memphis. A short time ago conductors were taken off two runs out of Memphis, one to Little Hock and one to Texarkana, It Is claimed. It Is further pointed out that Pullman conductors are said to make salaries of from $170 to $t90 a month while Negro porter are paid from $60 to $70 a month, but make considerable more from "tips'" and It Is, therefore, declared that for every run' that a porter can be substituted for a conductor, tho company would save about $100 per month Interesting developments on sever al lines are epected In the next few days, especially trains between Nash ville and Atlanta and between Nosa vllle and Knoxville, it is declared. Call Atlanta a Real Wonder City of Ne gro Business (By A. N. P.) Atlanta, Ga., Sept. 16. They are do lnR big things In Atlanta, In a big way. If you think they are not, come down and look one this beautiful me-i tropolls of the South. The specific object of this story Is to give a closeup of the progressive business side of our life In Atlanta. Too often people get their Ideas of communities from criminal news stories, always, of course, front page flame head stuff. Atlanta has suf fered from notorious information. When you come here and see what the business people are doing, you go away with a new Inspiration and a new vision, there Is no question about that. There Is one notable outstanding condition In Atlanta. Tho older men' of Atlanta, Herndon, Howard, Ross, Sr., and others, who came to busi ness opuldnce through the proverbial "trials and tribulations,"' are not only continuing to be progressive and push forward racial Interests, but they are backing up the young generation with their experience, money and good will. Indeed, that's beautifully fine! We must have more of that pulling to gether overywhere. Atlantans have vision, so, according to Scriptural formula, there is no dan ger of them perishing There Is noth ing too big to tackle and put over in Atlanta. Here they talked in thous ands and hundreds of thousands like some communities talk in dimes and quarters. It requires no more energy to do a big thing than a little thing, and frequently less time. Vision, sys tom and push, that's the combination that puts things across here. Dollars, you say, It's all In the system, they muko the same money work a half dozen different ways ucre. Just like Mr. Kred. We have nover seen an At lantan worrying about money. They seem to have plenty-of It. or the equ ivalent, and they get on the Job. "Urn Davis" Household Word. "Ben Davis" is a household word In Atlanta He Is an outstanding figure of practical achievement He is a fighter: he Is progressive. He belivea In young people, and encourage them. The great Odd Fellows bulldln is a lastln monument to his business ability-President Perry of the Standard Life Insurance Company knows no Alps. He has Just opened tho doors of the Citizens Trust Company, a (50.000 institution. You have to see this magnificent bank structure with its most Impressive modern fixtures and appointments to believe it. The half cannot be told. And all tho "live wires'' of Atlanta say they are Just starting to do things there. J. C. Hobs, Vice President of the Slate Savings Bank and President of the Atlanta Business League, is a splendid examnle of "youmr America." We heard Mayor Key, of Atlanta, pay a most glowing Inhute to this fine young business man before an audi ence of more than 3,000 people dur ing the session of the National Negro Business League, Reuben Black, owner of the Auditorium Theatre and Presi dent of a hundred thousand dollar realty company; William Shaw, cash ier of tho State Savings Bank; Char les Shaw, Assistant Secretary of the Standard Life Insurance Company: Harry It. Pace, head of the Black Swan Record Co., of New York City, but with largo interests In Atlanta, and scores of others, work hand in hand to make Atlanta shine! We will tell the world that this group has the bright idea of doing things More power to them. ATLANTA'S MIAOFItSHIP IN IN IH SINKS. Here are some of the things the Negro has In Atlanta: In addition to Its Hundred Shop Keepers, Atlanta, has: 10 Banking Houses, serving every financial need; a Life Insurance Com pany (Home Office): a Life Insurance Company (State Office); Two' Health nnd Accident Insurance Companies (Home Office); Four Health and Ac cident Insurance Companies (Mranili Offices); One Casualty Isuiance Com pany (Organizing); One Trust Com pany (Organizing); One Fire Insurance Company (Organizing); A Chain of Shoe and Furnishing Stores; 1 Five Realty, Building Loan and Invest ment Companies; A Chain of Grocery and Produce Stores, two Jewelry Es tablishments; Two Photograph Stud ios; Three Modern Yvers and Dry Cleaning Establishments; One Chain of Laudiies; One Motion Picture Pal ace; Largest Office Building of our of our Our Race In the World; Three newspapers; Four Employment Bu reaus; Three Printing Establishments; Nino Undertaking Firms; Two Joint Slock Cemeteries; One Barbers' Sup ply Manufacturing Concern: Six Drug Stores: One Hardware Store; Five Hnlar and Toilet Manufacturers'.

You have made a place in the sun. You have written your name In the stars. You have risen to the occasion, and set the pace of achievement in so lively a way that not only they who run may read the sign of your progress, but they who would keep near you must go like the very dickens, Atlanta, we love you, keep up tho good work. ONE OF A A V PYGMIES TELLS OF Tt'LSA, (By A. N. P.) Emporia, Kans., Sept. 15. Anyone who attended the Chicago ex position in 18M will remember the much advertised village of pygmies from Central Africa, one of the most sensational exhibits of the year. The village consisted of twelve Negro savages, brought from the Victoria Nyanza region by an enterprising showman. Eleven years later these Bame twelve pygmies wore shown at another ex position In St. Louis, decked out In all the pomp of barbarism. Again they were the center of attraction. After this exposition they were given 00 nnd offered transportation back to their native vlllago bv the show men. Most of them remained here. Scattering over different parts of the country these ttweleve pygmies from Central Africa blinked at twentieth century civilization until, as the time went on, slowly one by one they suc cumbed to new and strange diseases. Of the twelve who left the village on the shores of Victoria Nyanza In 1803 to come over the big waters to the white man's bazaar, there Is only one left. He Is Charlie Oliver, and ho now la working as a day laborer In the Emporia gas plant. Several days ago he came to Pr. J. C. BrickePs office with a burn mi hla arm Charlie, the savage from Central Africa, Is a short, stocky, quiet Negro In blue overalls. Here Is the story he tells In answers to ques tions: "I think the people over here are all wild, all crazy for klllintr Black In the village we were not like that. I will tell y.,u why I think to. When I left the show in St, Louis, tho man who had charge of us told me and my mate. 'Now you are In another man's country, and you must be good. You mustn't hurt anybody. "For twenty years my mate and I worked In tho South. We were good and didn't hurt anyone. Just as tho showman told us. But we didn't like the white men on the South. So a year ago we movod to Tulsa. Thtre my mate and I bought a house She stay ed in town to keep our little son In school, while I worked on a farm two miles from Tulsa. We heard talk of trouble between the Negroes and white men for months, but were not afraid. We believed in this country and the people. If we went about our work quietly no one would hurt us. "Then one day as I worked on the farm I heard shooting in town and people coming back said there was a war between the Negroes and the white men. But I was not afraid for my mate. I knew she would not go out of the house If there was shoot ing In the streets. That night the sky was red with fire and a big col umn of smoke rose from Tulsa Then I began to be afraid for my mate. "Next morning I hurried to town. I found my ma to and my son burled under the flaming ruins of our home. For two days I could not pull the charred boards from their cooked bod ies. White men driving like mad de vils through the streets In' autos would shoot at me as I worked. "I didn't understand It, but this T do know. My mate didn't hurt any one. She always remembered that we were In another man's country. These STATE SECRETARY GORDON RE TURKS FRO TULSA, OKLA. After an absence of two months and a half, Mr. E. L. Gordon, who In response to urgent telegrams went to Tulsa the early part of June to act as Executive Secretary to the Hunton Branch Y. M. C. A., has re turned to his post of duty in Texas, while in conversation with Mr. Gor don, he stated that while quite a deal had been said and written con cerning the Tulsa situation, and after his stay there he felt his inability to describe what he saw and heard; In fact he stated that he doubted whether those who were really In It would ever be able to depict It. He said: "I am placing it at a con servative estimate when I say that the devastated area comprise fully one square mile. It Is really heart rending when you see the savings of a-life time so to speak, laid to waste. It has been said and truthfully so, that no people can sing as our peo ple even In the darkest hour, yet, because we do Blng under, trying ordeals it does not mean that the life's blood and heart's strings are not being pulled upon it is one of the means of giving vent to our feelings. Amid the unfortunate sit uation, our people have manifested a great spirit of patience and fore bearance. The situation up to our departure was rather acute, that is to say, the housing problem offered the greatest difficulty. With the ap proach of winter and people still living In tents, one can imagine the situation- While it Is true that per mission was granted, but no permits Issued a short time ago for the erection of temporary houses suffici ent to house individual families, this was eventually revoked, until they were stopped by arrests and fines and the people made good use of the opportunity and in the entire burned area between seventy-five and eighty of these temporary structures were erected. On the south side of the hill most of the tents have disappear ed, while on the north, the covetcl side, they are dotted here and there The entire loss Is estimated at $5. 000.000 and claims have been filer' with the city, and town. These Ip turn have been turned down- "During our stay there we wen in close touch with our people, belnji present at the various meetings from time to time, and In conference with various committees nnd officials of the opposite race. We did find e readiness and ' willingness on the part of most of the whites we came in contact with to co-onerale as far as possible and use their influence to see to It that fair play be meted out to the property owners who sus tained losses. Never before have we seen manifested anywhere such a people are mad for blood. "White men here have been very good to us and I bear no grudge against white men. Why should 1? But I do know this: If ever I find tho man who set fire to our house I will crush his bones to toothpicks. "I hear white men will rebuild the homes burned during the two days' fight but I do not care what they do with mine. I am never going back. "Two months ago I came to Em poria to work In the gas plant. When I get enough money I am going back to Africa. My mate Is gone and my little son Is dead, so what has this country for me that I should stay? "I want to go back to my people in the village by the lake to die. I don't know the name of it. but the man who brought us over still is in Kt. Louis. He will toll me how to get there. "I hear the white men have put schools In the village That is a good thing for my people. Whin- men are sometimes very good to iu. but they are mad, mad for hlood. Jn Africa sometimes we fought, but ve never burned women in villages. Back on the lake the village people still re member my mate and me. I t think. They never knew our little son." CITIZENS OHCANIE TO ItKSIST THE ENCROACHMENT OF N ECHOES C. II. Comfort Heads New Associa tion of :is South llrnndnuy Res idents and Property Owners. St Louis. Mo., Sept. 15. The Mount Pleasant Welfnre Association, com posed of 368 residents and property owners on South Broadway, was form ed at Bohemian Hall. 4618 Minnesota avenue, for the stated purpose of re sisting the encroachment of Negroes nnd manufacturing plants In that community. C. I. Comfort, 4670 South Broadway, was elected president and H. F. Walz, 4738 South Broadway, secretary. Another meeting will be held next Friday night at which, Walz said a committee probably would be appoint ed to call on Archbishop Clennon with a view to havirg the oblate Sis ters of Providence.

Hoboken, N. J Sept. IB. A petition signed by thirty residents of Fifth street, between Jersey avenue and Coles street. Jersey City, was re ceived at meeting of tho City Com missioners, of tho City protesting atrainst the occupants of a Colored church, at 292 Fifth street. "We protest against the occupants of 202 Fifth street, which Is used as a church for Colored people,' reads the petition. "They are a great an noyanco to the neighborhood by tho manner in which they scream anil cairy on, drawing crowds from all around the surrounding neighborhood, which tho policeman on post can vouch for. Ho had to uuict them last Tuesday, August 30, and that was only oho of the many occasions They keep it up until half past ten and sometimes eleven o'clock. "We understand they are looking for a permit to enlarge the house by extondlng It back further," continues the protest, "and If this Is granted, it will be a great injustice to the property owners and residents of said block." The protest was referred to Pub lic Safety Director John Bentley for investigation. I.I'L ARTHUR Ot'lTN NEWARK IN A HURRY. Ilarred From Making; Speech He Re turn to New York by the (Next Train. Newark. N. J. Sept. 15 Jack John son. Negro pugilist and former heavy weight champion of the world was barred from making a speech In New ark, N. J., by order of Director of Public Safety William J. Brennan. Al though Mr. Brennan gave no reason for his action it was generally under stood that there might be trouble if Johnson made another speech like the one he made in Newark two weeks ago. Johnson was to have been met by a delegation of Negroes' at the rail road station and escorted to the First Regiment Armory. License had been secured to hold a street parade, and more than 2,000 Negroes had gather ed in the armory, where a dance v. r being held At the last moment the Rev. Sylvester L. Carrouthers, pastor of Roosevelt Temple, which Is New ark's largest Negro church, was noti fied that the pared nnd Johnson's speech must be called off. There was grumbling, but no opposition. John son after being informed of the can cellatlon turned about and took the next train back to New York. spirit of racial solidarity as Is beiDg manifested by our group there. On every Bide you could hear; "Un hamper ub and let us build our homes and places of business and we will come back, we are willing to do any ligttlmate thing for a better and bigger Tulsa, but that which is mine, let me say what shall be1 done with it." "On the 23rd a test case was made of the validity of the city ordinance which brought the burned area with in the fire limit. No sooner was the injunction granted by the court which permitted the rebuilding of homes of whatever nature, than the City Commissioners re-passed the same ordinace the following day. As was the case with the first or dinance the last is to be fought out in the courts. We would not have it inferred that our people have assumed an nntoga nistlc air, for they have been patient ly waiting on the action of the re construction committee which was appointed by the Mayor. "The Real Estate Exchange, which was the first organization as we un derstood it, to ask that the fire limit be extended, together with the Cham ber of Commerce, and the Intcr Radal Commission asked that the fire limit be withdrawn or modified, but the city officials were obdurate. The chairman of the Inter-Racial Commission, Judge Lakes (white) pleaded for one hour before the City Commissioners and Reconstruction Committee asking that the limit be modified and people permitted to build such houses as they were able to do, but up to the time we left nothing had been done- "Greenwood, the famous business district is again assuming its former appearance only with better build ings; bricks are being erected where frame houses were before; already five brick structures have been about completed and several others are in course of erection. After all, all that the Negro wants is equal priv ileges, equal opportunities, fair play and justice and he will prove that he can and will do what any other people can do. "There were fully 1216 house? burned and nearly 400 tents scatter ed here and there.. To have gone through with what the people of Tulsa passed through, and for any individual of individuals of our group to say that what happened to Tulsn did not concern us as a race, doc? seem to me that the right Eplrlt of race consciousness does not Rn;riV in the heart of such individual or individuals. We might say however, that we are very hopeful of the Tulsn situation and are optimistic enough to believe that there will come out of the chaotic condition a brighter day. "We shall now turn qur attention to our own field and are hopeful that this year will see the "Y"' work in the state greater than at any time yet. With the opening of the High Schoods and Colleges we shall be kept very busy from now on. Calls have come from Palestine, Commerce, Austin and Lockhart for some defi nite form of "Y" work. The "Y" with its program of manhood engi neering stands ready to render what ever Bervice possible to every community." REV. K. J. JOHSSON PREACHES TO ME.. URGES HOME GETT1SG. By N- W. -Harllee. Rev. K. J. Johnson, Revivalist, con ducting a series of meetings at tbe Evening Chapel C. M. E. Church, said In part in a Men's Meeting Sun day afternoon, Sept. 11th: "I am addressing kings, the men, the rulers to whom God gave do minion to direct affairs. I may con gratulate myself ff I shall relate to you what you yourselves may, per haps, already know, and in a small degree, add to this information. I shall talk plainly and 'state facts that may be profitable alike to both. I Like it that it is an honor to ad dress such a splendid gathering of the men of this great city who are Interested in a meeting of this na ture. I am glad that you came out, that we may have a heart to heart talk for a short time. "I wish to talk to you about three thingh that ought to be of interest to every man here, and I must state that I pity the man who has not these three things. Every man should have three kinds of literature, and these are they: The Bible, a Bank Account, and a Deed to his Home What think you of a man who has not a Bible, the chart of life, upon life's stormy sea, a guide, a coin pass? He is a poor seaman. What kind of a man is it who works all the time, week in and week out, and has no bank account? In short, has nothing to show what h'e Is doing; he Is in the shiftless class. Let every man who is here without a bank account tomorrow or as soon as he receives his next envelop, make a start; it is not too late If you be gin at once. Don't wait to get a big sum, begin with what you have. We now come to the third and most tmportont piece of literature that every man must bold to be n citizen in the community in which he lives. A man should have a home. It is not enough to be able to rent. A man with a family should cease to rent at Borne stage, if he expects to have a place to shelter his head and to house those depend ent upon him. He should have a deed, and prize this as a choice piece of literature. Be a man; l a king; own a home." More than three hundred men at tended the meeting. Finally gentlemen, let me admon ish you to be law abiding citizens. Respect your women, be a pride to your city, be a man of honor and of trust- Let us buy homes and beauti fy them and become so useful in the community that It can not afford to be without us. Lot us pray that God may speed the day when we as a race may think less of denomina tion and more of race prldo so that when an enterprise is started we shall not ask If the director Is a Baptist or Methodist or some other denomination, but let us ask rather is he a competent, honest man and as such let us rally to him that he may lead to success.' Denomination Is damning tho Negroes' business. Have denominations by all means, but let us have some race confidents as well. Many loud amend and dem onstrations and applauses followed this statement of the Evangelist Johnson. Can we not follow a lead er? Let me remind you that teachers deal with all grades of Ignorance ministers with all grades of wicked ness; the undertaker deals with an grades of sorrow, tirl the doctoi with all grades of diseases, end tvr should bave more appreciation for 25,000 MORE PORO AGENTS WANTED Equipped with the Veiy Latest Apparatus for Teaching the Poro System of Scalp and Hair Culture and all Branches of Beauty Culture Terms Moderate Diplomas Given Write Today for Further Information Poro Corner these workers of humanity and should show more respects in every way, rendering honor to whom hon or Is due."
