(Continued from page 1). ..i,ini l sense, of fair clay. finally this will work In our be- nair. , rn thlnir will hclD ua Immensely, and that la to reach the point where we can command attention of the business world. We - must produce om eminently successful business enterprises. To do thia we need but to buck toKetner ana earnestly Biippun the businesses we have among: us. We must give to the Negro in busi ness our patronage: we owe it to him for many reasons. First, if one Negro makes a success in any line of busi ness he reflects credit on the whole of us. If he faila he brings to the race more of acorn and disrespect. Then we owe It to our children to support Negro enterprises, for in so doing Is our only hope of providing them with a dignified livelihood. We owe our support for the reason, it Is the only support the Nogro business man can expect Without It he Is a - failure to begin with. The Negro In business owes us the same service, the same values for our dollars that the other fellow Is will ing to give. If he Intends to do busi ness on color and race pride alone, he la doomed to failure at his own hands. Beyond doubt success In business will go a long ways in solving our race problems, and to gain such suc cess, the business Negro and patroniz ing public should find means for co. operating for mutual benefit. The prize Is well worth the concerted ef- fort It takes to win." Tells of Temple Plana, He spoke at length about the pro posed Temple at Houston, where the site has already been purchased. He mentioned the Dledsra of professional and business men of Houston of enough patronage to yield $36,000 in revenue. The price paid for the site is 8B,000 of which 116,000 has been paid In cash, the Balance to oe ptuu In t n vftArn. Declaring that It was the policy of the Order to employ Negroes oniy in the erection and administration of this buildlnir he said: "It is our purpose to have every possible piece of work done by Negro workmen. Our Dositlon on this mat ter Is that this entire project In every detail from beginning to ena shall redown to the benefit and credit of the Nea-ro race. The scheme to originate with a Negro, the plans of execution to come from Negroes the architect to be a Negro, the contractor and laborers to be Negroes, the money furnished by Negroes, the money spent by Negroes and for Negroes and the building throughout to stand aa a monument to the worth of the nusi ness ability, skillful labor, and ma terial Droarress of our people. For this reason after the above named action of the committee of twelve to allow the plans of the building described above to De stuaica by a Negro architect, to our ai annnlntment. however, the white archl. tect, who had drawn the plans refused to turn same over to an architect until thev were paid for in the sum of 17.800.00. Itather than do this, and In order that Negroes may have the privilege the sub-committee took an entirely different course and decided to pur chase the lots alone and have the building put up by other than white architect and contractor." In concluding his address he made mention of . the need of bonding of local lodge officers, the condition and growth of the Order making special mention of the Juvenile and uniform rank departments, and the Household of Kuth and urged that every member work well, think lofty, strive earnest ly to continue the progress so well be gun and carried on until now.
