The Lecture Last Snnday Sight.
At the First Baptist Church last Sun
day night, a Mr. W.s', of New York,
lectured on "Missionary Work m Cen
tral Africa." He fully pictured the situ
ation, explaining the existing religion
that of the Moslems telling how i he lit
tle eirla were taken in war and sold as
slaves or "wives." He also gave a
eraohic account of the healthfulness,
wealth, resources, and improvements,
and of the intelligence of the i atives of
the upland regions. In his closing re
marks he asked that every Christian
make a sacrifice each day for the Lord s
woTk, by discarding some of the unnec
eary luxuries of life, as he had done for
the last four years. w. l. w. .
Strange Events.
Truly, this is a day of strange events, I
a day when happenings are peculiar;
but the most strange thing that his oc
curred lately i the occurrence of last
Thursday night, February 25th. The
i ccasion alluded to wa9 a so called ban
quet given by a select company, headed
and controlled by Dr. L. A. Scruggs, in
honor of the colored members of the
General Assembly, to which all colored
members were invited excepting the
Hon. James H. Young. It seems very
strange and narrow, indeed, that he, be
ing a colored man, should be left out and
cot honored (?) by this class of men, who
claim to love the Negro race with pro
found love, unfathomable love, a love so
great that they would call upon rocks
and hills to break their silence in procla
mation of its greatness. To the ban
quet (?) alluded to, many of our best citi
zens were invited, and did attend only to
be humiliated by the generation of the
pow-wow banquet into a political mass
meeting of the meanest type. The most
disgraceful thing of it all was the decep
tion practiced in arranging the invitations
in such a way as to decoy many of our
inoffensive race of both sexes into this
political meeting, with the hope that
when they came they would turn their
guns on Jim, and cause him to fall a
d-ai cock in the pit, dying at the hands
of these honorable men and noble ladies.
But let it be said to the credit of many
present, tbat the trick would not work.
They had made it a point to select those
who were Jim's enemies to be present on
this occasion ; but, lot and behold, when
the shameful manoeuvres were entered
into, it. was seen that their scrutiny had
not been sufficient to accomplish the end
desired. Many at once realized that they
had been deceived into a net, from which
they intended to break from; accord
ingly, with a great exercise of power,
they freed themselves from the thrall
dom which did bind them. Before very
long the -leading guards came to the
realization that the little band was noth
ing more than a very light scud. No
one ever heard of political resolutions
beirg introduced at a social banquet be
fore ; but such was the case here, and to
their very molestation the introduction
of those resolutions reveajed a ready re
cant. The Tt solutions commended all of
the colored Representatives,' excepting
James H. Young, and divided up the
federal pie between themselves. This is
another deceptive point. They knew
the people would not endorse them for
anything outright. Hence, the meeting
under the disguise of a banquet. Greitly
to their ignominy, they found that they
could not oe endorsed by their own selec
tion, even to play push-pins. They are
excused for their efforts to resurrect
themselves. They will cease to struggle
before long when they can see, as we do
plainly, that they are buried face
forward, ani every effort to rise before
their time sends them deeper in the
grave they dug with their own hands.
A few more efforts to rise will send them
entirely beyond the sound of the trumpet.
Hence, no life will come to that valley
of dry-bones. In vain they will expect
the awakening to life again.
The Republicans of Wake county elect
ed Mr. Young, as a colored member, but
th(Stf gentlemen say, by their way of con
duct be is Lot. The white people say he
is colored, but these say not. Let Mr.
Young be what he may as to color, he i
our idol in politics. He is our leader, and
who can prevent us from following him.
Mr. Young and we are so united until we
regard a thrust at him as a thrust at us.
We follow no sauuterer. We have chosen
our leader and a good one he is. Because
of the choice we made of him, we are in
the savanna of our political freedom.
Whom the people deiigh to honor they
honor. No opposition impedes the public
will. WhileMr. Young may be discrim
inated against by these few parasites, the
people have honeted him aa no other ne
gro in Wake county has ever been hon
ored. The men esteem him for his value,
and trust him, because of his strength of
character. The ladies admire him, be
cause of the great defense he makes in
their interest, and pray that God
may still give him light to see. He is also
in the hearts of the children..- They feel
that in him they have a strong tower. A
man so universally admired and loved
cannot fail of success.
Such a man as James H. Young must
live while the people live, for his abode is
in their hearts. He has alwaj s stood by
his race and party. He never has tried
as some Negroes to leave the race, but
has at all times stood and proclaimed "I
am a negro," and fought their battles with
pen and tongue. He has never voted any
ticket but that of his party even to the
lowest county officer. Never has he drag
ged out any one to defeat a Republican.
Never has he helj e i the Democratic party
by bogus tickets. He has not been a mid
night dedger into the headquarters of
the enemy. He measures every inch of a
man in the truest sense. His enemies can
say that for him. Indeed be is a tower
of strength. When the enemies think
they have him he carries the gate off
with him.
Our honored Jim, by you we will stand,
your battles will fight, your name will
love, your caue will expouse until your
opposers go down beneatn the mignty
waves of an indignant people. You won
the honors by which you have been dec
orated by your efforts for the people. We
have more to which you are entitled and
in due season wc will bestow them upon
Who is like our Jim? He has brought
freedom to us. In all of the struggles he
labored in every way possible, losing
sleep, spending time, using the wealth of
his mind night and day, and never tak
ing rest till the dove of victory he could
see perched upon the Republican banner
with the olive branch cf joy. This is our
Jim whom we delight to honor.

Sunday Services at the Penitentiary.
For a number of years Rev. C. John
son has bf en preaching once each month
at the penitentiary to the prisoners.
They have a very neat and comfortably
arranged chapel, where regular preach
ing ani Sabbath school services are held
every Sunday.
Rev. C. Johnson thought, aside from
the regular preaching on last Sunday, be
would change the program and have a
song service, and invited Bro. Gto A.
Mial and twelve others, who went out
last Sunday with Rev. Johnson, at three
o'clock, and spent one hour. Miss Lucy
A. Grant presided at the organ, and the
cho r, with Bro. Mial as leader, sang a
number of inspiring hymns, the prison
ers joining in with us, and were appar
ently greatly affected by the song service.
Mr. Whiting and Mr. Taylor made
some inspiring remarks. Rev. Johnson
then announced that the time to con
clude the service bad arrived. Mr. Flem
ing, the warden, then arose and said he
wanted to thank the ladies and gentle
men of the choir, in behalf of their
school, for the good singing, and he
thought if we would come often we
could do great good in participating in
the Sunday services, and that tickets
would be given Bro. Johnson any time
he asked for them to admit us. The
school then sang one of their songs, led
by one of their number, after which the
doxology was sung and the school dis
We noticed during the services many
of the prisoners who seemed to be deeply
inter, sted in the singing, and gave their
strictest attention to the words spoken.

In the quiet, yet secret battle for a re
turn to county supervision of the public
schools, those having taught, and are now
teaching, in Edgecombe, are rejoicing at
the signal victory for right. The teachers
of this county were possibly more interest
ed than any set of colored teachers in the
State, and Senator George E. Butler used
wisdom when he opened up correspond
ence with the educators of the model
county. Our schools have been well non
aged, and we rejoice that the Senate led
off with the decree that county supervi
sion instead of district educational red
tape must be our rule. Even Edge
combe's Senator voted for this excellent
sinner the vilest sinner may return.

an utter lack of the qualities of a gentle

No wonder Miss Ada has such fine talent
for succeeding.

ing that if 120,000 negro voters are loyal,
they should be allowed to enter the pub

discreetly, firmly aud gentlemanly; row

should be in the front in times like these.
Prof. W. F. Fonville and Rev. A. A.
Crooke, though from us,' are to be con
gratulated as much as Williams, Bryan,
King, Strickland, Misses Newton, Jack

man aud Mrs. Stancel for their individual
letters to Senator Butler. It matters not
where Snap Shots may be cast in future,
he will ever remember the gallant fight
for county supervision, when the victory
for district supervision was imminent.
Persons convicted and sent to prison
are to be kept there by the guards if pos
sible, but wnen one makes an escape and
surrenders t the guards, and is then shot
down as was the case with Holly, to the
intelligent mind it would seem that such
might be termed malicious murder, and
how these men can expect to be retained
in position is marvelous they should
walk the plank. Esse Qtjam Yideri. 4

Latta Unsversity will be closed during
the Christmas holidays for all the session
for the purpose of rebuilding the build
ings that were consumed by fire last May,
and also additional buildings. The Uni
versity is located in the village of Ober
lin, N. O., one and one-half miles we6t of
the capitol building in the city. The lo
cation is the very best for a school, being
out of the busy city, but within easy
reach by means of the electric streetcars.
It is enough to say, that there has not
been a single case of serious illness since
the establishment of the school. Each
dormitory is heated by stoves and hearths,
so every necessary comfort is secured.
The terms are very reasonable $7.50 per
month. Those desiring to reduce their
expenses by work will be taken at the
lowest possible rates: young men $6.40
per month ; young women $5.40 per
month; day students $1 per month. A
small incidental fee will be charged.
The school will reopen on the 7th day
of October, 1897. Our purpose is to make
it one of the largest schools in the South
for the race. Law and Medicine will be
added. The institution is wholly non
sectarian in its religious instruction or
influence. Yet earnest attention will be
given to Bible study, applying its truths
to daily life and conduct, that a thorough
Christian character may be obtained. It
is open to all students of either sex.
None but competent teachers will be em
ployed. For further information, address the
President, Rev. M. L. Latta, D. D.
I will le.ive for the North and Europe
the latter part of December or the first
of January, and will return time enough
to have buildings completed by the re
opening of the school. The University
will contain eight buildings.
