Takoma Park -Citizens Prefer the
Original Plan?Other Business
Matters Considered.'
At a meeting of the Takoma Park Citizens'
Association held last evening in
Takoma Hall strenuous opposition was
made to the bill in Congress changing the
hies of New Hampshire avenue extended; J
the question of abolishing the grade
crossing at Carroll street was discussed; I
j. proposed amendment to the District appropriation
bill providing reciprocal sew
*?in.Uo nn foilar street and East- I
"Mage IBVIlUreo v. ?
?rn avenue was considered and arrangements
completed for celebrating Washngton's
birthday anniversary Saturday
night. The meeting was largely attended
and a number of residents of the park ,
were elected to membership in the association.
The question of changing the lines of
New Hampshire avenue according to an
intendment to "An art to provide for the
?xtension of New Hampshire avenue in
he District." approved February 27.
IH07, and introduced by Senator Gallinger.
was brought to the attention of the
association by Secretary James \V. Dyre.
He explained that the amendment strikes
tut the words "on a straight extension
r?f the lines as now established in the city
r?f Washington" and inserts the words
"in accordance with the highway exten- ,
siqn plan."
The extension of the avenue In a
straight line from Petwortli to the Dis.rlct
line was advocated. It being stated ]
!hat bv following the Kiggs road, as pro-,
. ided in the new bill, the thoroughfare I
will be crooked anil objectionable to the j
property owners through whose property |
it would pass. " A committee was ap- j
pointed, consisting of Messrs J. B. Kin-f
near, chairman; W. W. Dyar and S. N. 1
"urriss. to appear before the proper committee
of Congress and urge the exten- j
sion of the avenue in a straight line to
the District line.
Report of Railway Committee.
Mr. J. H. Clark, chairman of the com- I
mittee on railroads, submitted a report. ;
w hich was received and placed on file. Mr. 1
Clark informed tlie> meeting that he had
received a* letter from lien. Harries statin*
that tihe Washington Railway and
Kleetric Company had increased the number
of cars on the Brtghtwood line to
Takoma Park, and that h letter of thanks
bad been forwarded to the company. In
his report the chairman suggested that
in the future changes of schedule* on i
I lie line should l>e posted at Takoma Park
and at the "loop" at Florida avenue.
He'.uive to the resolution adopted at
the last meeting of the association and
referred to the railroad committee, reluestlng
the Commissioners to eliminate
ih" grnili crossing at Cedar street. Chairman
t'lark reported that to depress Cedar
street under the tracks of the Baltimore
and Ohio railroad so that the grade of1
the street should bo at least fifteen feet i
below the tracks It would be necessary!
to hogin excavating on the west side at
h jioint near Blair rr ad and on the east '
idc of Cedar an.' Carroll streets. This
vould. he said, result in leaving nearly
r.11 of the business, houses above the
i.: ede of the street, making them accessibh
only wifch great difficulty. The depot
ami electric rats would be equally inaccessible.
r.: u s in a dlnstinct hardship
to passengers and to freight shipXIS.
States the Alternative.
Mr. Clark stated that the alternative
.vould be to depress the Baltimore and ;
Ohio railroad tracks under the street,
this plan being equally objectionable be- '
< auFe of the difficulty in shipping freight,
as the use of the side tracks would neees- i
sarlly be discontinued.
In conclusion the report stated that to '
oneof the
II It I equipped wil

would be detrimental to the interests of
Takoma Park, and recommended that the ^
resolution as adopted at the last meeting
be laid on the table. The matter was
discussed at some length. Messrs. H. C.
Gore. J. A. Martip and W. F. Wright being
in favor of depressing the tracks;
Mr. W. W. Dyar suggested the advisa- c
bllity of opening and extending Holly \
avenue: Dr. C. O. Townsend favored fur- >
ther consideration by the committee, and
Mr. H. B. Shaw the construction of an
overhead bridge similar to those in vogue r
i in England. A vote was taken, resulting f
in the report being received and referred ?
to the committee on streets and walks t
for report. I .
I l
Report of Treasurer.
The treasurer's report was submitted i I
and approved. 11
The following were elected to member- ] *
ship in the association: II. H. Spencer,!,,

C. W. H. Browne. S. X. Curtiss, H. L.
Thornton and S. T. Smith.
The Dolliver school bill and its pro- :i
visions were brought to attention by Sec- j r
retary Dvre. but no action was taken by
the association. j I
A vote of thanks was extended to the
Commissioners for additional gas lamps placed
throughout the park.
President Woods reported to the association
relative to the construction of re- .
clprocal sewers on Eastern avenue and
Cedar street, and read a proposed amend- ]
ment which he would submit to Senator
Burkett for the relief of the property : t
owners residing on these streets. The ,
amendment provides that "the collector ( f,
of taxes (ft the District shall deduct from _
the taxes assessed against such lots on j
the District side of Takoma Park as are : n
not provided with sewerage facilities by f]
the District an amount equal to the sew- ; ?
erage tax actually paid by the owners to .,
the town of Takoma Park. Md-. for s*w- i j.
erage facilities not to exceed Stu ror (|
each house per annum. This deduction is J
to continue each vear until such time as
the District sewers are available." A
copv of the proposed amendment is to be j
sent to the Commissioners, requesting i
their indoisement. j jj
Joint Committee Proposed. : ii
The association favored the appoint- | h
ment of a committee of three members je
to meet with a committee of similar nuni- [a
ber from tlie Brightwood, Brightwood 1
Park and Petwortli Citizens' associations j *
to report us to the advisability of forming ^
a joint committee of thes? associations j h
with a view to acting upon all matters jj
affecting these localities. The committee j w
as announced by President Woods in- Is
eluded H. B. Shaw. Dr. C. O. Townsend, a
and J. \V. Dyre. w
Mr. L. M. Mooers. chairman of the com- j v
mittee to arrange for the celebration of j o

nd Convention Adjourns to Meet in
ct Louisville, Ky., Following the
[r. General Conferences.
An address on conditions in Soutli Af.(
rica, tiie preparatory arrangements to
^ ' finance legal fights against the jim crow j
| car laws and a visit to Howard Univer- |
fie j sity were the features of the last day's
t- j session of the joint convention of negro '
^ bishops, which lias been in session here ,
during the )Ast week in their first session. I
!S, Tiie address on South African conditions
ix | was delivered by Bishop W. B. Derrick f
& of Flushing. X. Y., who is at present
; Bishop of Africa, and who recently rec
' turned from that country, where he had
! been looking after the interests of the
^! African Methodist Episcopal Church.
I* j D(nV>.... IA l-l- ? ...
.-?l uiouu|i uenn'R siateu mat Ills last trip
s_. to Africa was for the purpose of investigating
the merits of a controversy regard's
ing the operations of the A. M. E. Church
1* in South Africa, the colonial government
being somewhat apprehensive of tlie efor
fects of tMe teaciiings of the American
^ missionaries upon the natives. He stated
that lie found conditions with the natives
J1 somewhat similar to that of the negroes
of the south, although on account of the
claim of the colonies to the right of selfgovernment
the government of Great
i Britain could not lie held responsible.
* j
d-: Each Colony Has Sovereign Power. ;
j In this connection he said. "During my
: visit I discovered that each colony had
, sovereign power, something like the states
j in America. For this reason the English
s- i government discriminates, while on the
r. i other hand it is true that tIre colonial j
i government passes laws which are in (
n- j many c ases un-English, but which meet j,
u. j local conditions and are highly prejudicial,1
. , j to liif interests of the natives 1 sincere- ,
! ly believe the purpose of the English gov- ;
r-v ; ernment 's to do tiie riglit thing hy the ;
,e : natives ,r> Africa, regardless of the stub- 1
re liornness of the problems which tliey are ]
confronting. These problems arf almost ]
r>- similar to those that we are confronting
ie in tills country."

to Separate Car Laws. j,
m The Monday session was the scene of ;*
an acrimonious debate on tiie best method c
, of lighting tiie separate car laws and i
ts j testing the right of various railroads in i
tlie south to give negro passengers In- t
',7. ferior accommodations. Bishop B. T.
is Tanker ot'estioned the advisability of mill- i ]
is 'sters of the rosnel meddling in such aT- <
jf fairs, stat'ng that it was more within the j
province of politicians and other leading ,
I men. j

Visit Howard Universitv.
Tli" bishops visited Howard University
Monday afternoon. Addresses were made
by Bishop B. P. Lee. Wilberforce, Oliio,
representing tlie African Methodist Epis-'
copal Church: by Bishop C. H. Phillips, j
Nashville, Tenn.. representing the Colored 1
Methodist Episcopal Church, and Bishop
G. \V. Clinton, representing the African
Methodist Zion Church. Bishop Piiillips i
presides over the Texas and west Texas i
conferences. t
Bishop Lee stated that tlie great purpose
of education is to render all men
equal, and that in a free government like
ours there is no condition nor circumstance
that can make a man a "big
stick" or unduly elevate him above his
fellows. Bishop Phillips dwelt upon tlie
importance of each student at some time
in his school life determining just what
ids lifework should be. and that God
would consecrate him for the work. He
called attention to the fact that Moses.
Elijah, and Jesus Christ Himself had a j
definite aim in life.
Another "Army" Important.
Bishop Clinton said: "I am not so
much concerned about the size of the
standing army, but I am deeply concerned (
about tlie size and efficiency of tlie army j
of educated young men and women of f
the negro race who shall go out Into tlie i
world and try to help elevate the thousands
of your fallows. Howard University i
demands that you take as good care of
it after you go out into the world as it is
endeavoring to take of vou now. If von
do this?if in every action, every thought,
and in your life work, you carry out the
principles you have learned here?the race
and humanity in general will have reason
to feel proud of you."
The convention adjourned to meet in t
Louisville, Ky.. following the Sessions of ;
the three general conferences.
