accustomed the audience to a loud sound, speakers
were Introduced from various parts of the coun

Handbills announced that the meeting was to be
in the interests of proper negro representation at

could l.c elected President "against the vote of the
colored man."

tainly did do his level be-t to do for de colored
man." The Republican - party was charged wM»
many. sin*. "The flas that. docs not protect," was
an oratorical tidbit that received some biases and
an -Oh. dear." from a number in the gallery.

ton and Washington, said: "Do you know what
Mr. Roosevelt would say if he heard these
speeches? He'd say. 'Let them blow off" steam.
It'll make them meek when election time conies
round.' He thinks th* mgro will never desert the
Republican party, and 1 guess he's about right.
We haven't sot any political sense. The Irishman,
he's pot it-born with it-even the Dutchman nas
it. but we've got rone. The negroes said forty
five years ago. 'We don"t need no sense— Marse
Lincoln can set us free.' We don't Been to move
so. you could notice it."
A resolution was adopted asking the negroes "to
?iand up !ik<- MS for their civil and political
,ight«:.-' to ■^eaaeanher Brownsville," and. among
other thinps. it spoke of Kovaker a? "worthy to
tili the shoes of Lincoln."

Judge Hough Says E. L. Phillips Is Entitled
to Damages.
After the jury in the federal court had been out
three-quarters of an hour yesterday considering
tho case of the suit of K. L. Phillips, president of
the Union Refrigerator Transit Company, of Mil
•tt'auUee. against the S. 3. McClure Company, pub
lishers, to recover JIOO.OCO damages for alleged libel.
Judge Hough directed that if a verdict be reached
last nißht that it should be scaled, and would be
opened this morning: at 10:"0 o'clock. This suit for
libel R rew out of mi article by Tiny Stannard
Raker published in "McClUje'S Magazine." In which
Phillips v.as accused "of accepting commissions
Illegally, and was alas said to have been a lobbyist.
The terms -private graft." -lobbyist" and "smart
money" were used by Mr. Baker. Judge Hough.
in charging the jury, declared that these terms
had a libellous meaning, even as a point of law.
In the railroad investigation by the Wisconsin
Legislature the term "lobbyist" was used without
opprobrium, the court said, but never in New York
State, and the jury must determine whether the
term, published in New York and circulated all
over the country, was one that held plaintiff up to
ridicule, obloquy and contempt, and to what mone
tary extent. The court declared the use of the
term "private graft" as applied to the acceptance
of commissions "was a libel upon the plaintiff as a
matter of law; the language private graft' ad
mitted of no other than a libellous interpretation."
Judge Hough said that the plaintiff v.as entitled to
damages, actual or compensatory, for libel, and
the jury was to determine the amount.

In Individuals It Develops Undesirable
Qualities, Says Professor Zuebling.
Thrift has always bean lauded as one of the
cardinal virtues, but no one ever professed to
think it an enguging quality, and many have se
cretly longed to class it with the vices. It t s re
freshing, therefore, to learn from Professor Charles
Zuebling. of the University ad Chicago, that it is
not only prosaic and uncomfortable, but pernicious.
Talking to the League for Political Education
yesterday morning at No. 23 West 44th street. Pro
fessor Zuebllng quoted th» Puritans and th«
French peasants as examples at the somewhat
doubtful blessings of thrift.
"The early etruggles of the Puritans." he said,
"developed the splendid qualities of the Puritans.
They also developed the pernicious excesses of the
Puritans, which are still a menace to the country.
Th« thrift of the French peasants, which Is often
held up to us as an example, gave us the hoe
Thrift Is not only a menace to the Individual
character; it is a social menace as well. Professor
Zuebllng pointed out. * ;-'
"It is only because the majority are spending
that some people profit by saving." he said. "It
is a social advantage for every one to spend as
much as possible. At the same time, it is an In
dividual necessity to Rave for our own protection."
The only solution of this problem Professor Zne
bllng finds in collective instead of Individual thrift.
"Life Insurance." he said, "in spite of all the ex
posures, is about as secure as any kind of tnvest
ment and a great deal better than Individual sav
ings. When it l» undertaken by the state, as in
New Zealand. It Is absolutely safe."
Old age Insurance, the lecturer said, "could not
long be deferred."
For the spending of money three rules were
given: Prefer durable goods to perishable. Prefer
goods whose use Is social. ' Prefer goods which
express individuality.
To illustrate the violation of the <lrst ruhj Pro
fessor Zuebline instanced a certain famous baJJ
•whereby $50,000 was expended in one night.
"There are an infinite number of ways," h»
paid. "in which one could get more gross egotisti

■mall art galleries and museums throughout toe
country. Fifty thousand dollars would build «n#
of those and display one's name all day Ion?, year
In and year out to thousand:-! of gratef'il citi*rn*"
We want not only oil" ••■•> savin*, but collective
spending, according to Professor ■aßbnii?.
"With all our corruption.' he said, "-x* get ear

through fatal M spending. Our streets an» deaaaf
