ONE HOPE OF NEGRO RAGE THAT IS TO AFFILIATE WITH THB DEMOCRATIC PARTY. So Declares Rev. 8. L. Corrothers, President of the National Negro American Political League. With "The Duty of the Negro Ministry in the Present Political Campaign" as his subject. Rev. S. L. Corrothers, president of the local branch of the National Negro American Political League, delivered a stirring address at Galbralth A. M. E. Zlon Church yesterday. Picturing the abuses which have been heaped upon the people of his race by the republican party, he held out to the negro race In America but one hope for political freedom, and that was affiliation with the democratic party. Bound Hand and Foot. "For forty years," he said, "we have been bound hand and foot by the republican party, although we have been taught to follow without question the republican leaders. I regret to say that after all these years of devotion we find ourselves betrayed and deserted and left to the men of the democratic party who, we have been taught, are our enemies." He cited several Instances in which he claimed the negap had suffered at the hands of the republicans: "Brownsville stands like a smoking Sinai;- lily-whitlsm spreads itself over the hope of the negro like the blackness of the darkness of Egypt, but thank God one star of hope remains. From every section of this land comes the news that If the negro is to break away from political slavery and to become an Independent American citizen, voting for men and for measures rather than political parties, the door of opportunity shall be open to him." Scores Candidate Taft. He went on to cite Instances of prominent southerners who had urged the negroes of the south to leave the repub- j licans and to be taken Into the democratic fold. In conclusion he said: "The method by which Mr. Taft was * nominated was a disgrace to American t civilization, apd his election will prove a c curse to the spirit of our free institutions, j "Is he a friend to the colored citizen and what does he stand for? He approves of disfranchisement laws of the south. c "Some of the negro officeholders who t thought they were leaders have been c very abusive because they have not been ? able to prevent a discussion of the actual c condition of the negro of this country. i "I desire to say in closing this sermon v that it is not my purpose to in any way f increase the lack of confidence in these t would-be leaders, but since they have J become so officious, running around from place to place, trying to misrepresent ua to She people. I desire to serve notice here now, and for all time to come, that I will not be swerved from my purpose f toy anybody in the church or out of it. t A Call to Office Holders. j "Any black man who occupies a promt- t nent place in this government, and who knows that his place was procured as a 1 representative of his people, and who has failed to lift his voice or pen against the C outrages heaped upon his people, is a curse to the race, and ought to keep his mouth shut, for if he were a member of any other race except the poor, op- 0 pressed negro it would be hard for him h to And a place to light." 1: f $1.25 to Annapolis and Betura b Via "The Electric Line."

C Mrs. Beatrice Slford, twenty-three years of age, of 706 8th street northwest, sustained serious injuries last night while e enjoying a pony ride on the track at j Chevy Chase Lake. She was thrown from < a pony and was In a dazed condition when s assisted by persons who witnessed the ac- f cident. The young woman was hurried j to the Emergency Hospital In a. special t car, being transferred to an ambulance f in waiting at New York avenue and 15th . street. Her condition was serious, the patient having sustained several fractures and possible internal injuries. The physicians stated this morning that she is 1 tnuch better and will probably recover. Mrs. Siford went to the resort at the j terminus of the car line with William Seals, the fourteen-year-old son of her . landlady, and the couple hired ponies to take a ride around the rack. They were speeding the animals when suddenly the pony Mrs. Siford was riding stepped into a . depression and fell. In trying to regain its feet the pony turned a somersault , and fell, Mrs. Siford going down first. The weight of the littla animal was great enough to inflict serious injuries, and 1 when the victim was picked up it was i feared that she was in a dying condition. . Temporary aid was given. Her family physician met the car at the loop and accompanied the patient to the hospital.

Season for Shooting Stars Galore Is at Hand?Fine for Loving Couples. Pull your hat down over your eyes and duck Into the nearest doorway, for folks are all going through the Perselds and some may get a meteor In the neck! The earliest knowledge which mortals have of this interesting little group of heavenly hoboes is the classic speech of the "Seeing Mount Olympus" guide, who drove the chariot of the sun for a great many years, until he was finally forced out of business by automobile lines which employ a bevy of attractive young women to sit In the vehicles and entice the country youths to give up a dollar and listen to the sing-song of the professional gent with the megaphone. This ancient charioteer used to get off something like this: "On your right you will see the farfamed group of Perseids, a dear little community of meteors .and shooting stars which float lazily toward the earth at the rate of^ fifteen miles a second. The suppiy or ferseldfc is falling orr rapiaiy, and at present there are no more than 20,000,000 of them which enter the earth's atmosphere daily. Some Smaller Ones, Also. "There are, however, 100,000.000 smaller ones which enter the atmosphere of the earth every day, but which are invisible to the naked eye. The big boys are supposed to be 200 miles apart, and seem to have nothing to do but float around in the universe until the earth in its revolutions about the sun reaches their domicile and begins to gather to itself thousands of tons of this star dust, which increases the weight #of this wicked world and which retards its passage through the air." The old charioteer was not far from wrong, either, for the Peroeids are a group of meteors supposed to be a part of the tail of the famous comet of 1862. They occupy a space In the heavens Ave millions of miles in width, and as the eafch bores straight through them every year at about this time the early morning heavens in August are especially full of shooting stars. There will be a right nice exhibition of shooting stars before midnight every evening from now until August 22, so that couples believing that the sight of a shooting star entitles the watchers to a kiss may satisfy their ambitions in that direction without having to ring in lightning bugs to break the monotony. When Meteor Begins to Burn. A meteor begins to burn wnen it is about seventy-flve miles above the earth and continues its blazing trail for about twenty-flve miles. After that the falling body is generally reduced to dust and the "star" disappears. The light falling ashes of these meteors reach the earth, as has been proved by very interesting experiments. Quantities of undisturbed snow from the polar regions have been examined and on Altering the water minute globules of oxide and sulphide of iron have been discovered. These are ingredients which have reached the earth without being entirely disintegrated. The effect of the fall of meteors has been calculated with scientific nicety. The astronomers claim that the weight of the earth is increased 50,000 tons a year by this star dust, and it would take 800,000,000 years to make a deposit on the surfooo a# t ho oarth on innh In tViirlf noas lUVVi WA.

Columbia Typographical Union Transacts Business. That temporary employes of the government printing office should receive leave of absence is the opinion of Columbia Typographical Union, expressed at its meeting yesterday afternoon. It was ordered that a committee be appointed to further the cause of the men and women assisting in the rush work incident to a session of Congress. It was stated that the Treasury and other departments give leave of absence to temporary employes, after three months' employment, and it is thought only just that similar employes of the big printery should also be favored. A resolution was adopted expressing to the public printer the desire of the union that the present classification should prevail, with especial reference to separating job and "straight matter" compositors, and grading operators of typesetting machines. It was said to have been intended by the previous administration to grade operators into three classes, while Job compositors were distinguished from workers in other divisions. The decision of the Treasury officials Is said to have been that a compositor "is one who sets type by hand." with no reference to size of type or other qualification, which settled the point of law Involved. It was announced that the base ball team from Washington, which will participate in the union tournament in New York city, will act as host to the team from Chicago on its return trip, and , f? fAt _ ?in i ?* a tnat an exniDition game win ue piayea here Saturday afternoon, September 19.

BALLET SATS. / ??? , Pastor Expresses His Views at OpenAir Meeting Yesterday in ? Franklin Park. "We are rapidly becoming a nation of 4 boarders. There is too little of the home life; we lose sight of our families; we are not in close touch with our parents." Rev. Dr. George Bailey, pastor of the _j Western Presbyterian Church, declared It at the open-air services, under the 1 auspices of the Y. M. C. A., in Franklin p? Park yesterday afternoon. Dr. Bailey chose as his text "The Home," upon the integrity of which he said the safety of the country depends. "An orator," the speaker remarked, "has said there is not a man who will not f*1 answer the call to arms in defense of his home. But who will shoulder a musket to defend his boarding house? There is something indescribably beautiful about the word home, with all of the assoolations It calls to mind. The French have no word for home unless it is the word 'house,' and it would be of interest to know how much of the restless spirit of LI France, the political upheavals and social faults, can be traced to this imperfect n understandng of the home. ? Should Stand Together. "The members of the family," Dr. f Bailey continued, "should stand^ together. They should not spread the faults of their kin to the world. They should shield _J those members of their family who have been in trouble. Together, the family will stand sturdily; divided, it is easily overthrown. In America we have families whose names are synonymous for honor and good living?the Adamses, the Washingtons?yes, and the Roosevelts. There is no prouder heritage than a line of an- a cestors who have lived honorably. "I am glad," Dr. Bailey said in concluding. "that most of us Americans can claim such a heritage." A mah* choir under the leadership of J. R. Barber -furnished music. er Services were also held in Lincoln Park. Rev. Dr. Donald MacLeod, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church, preached the 1)r sermon. He chose as his text the gospel ^ of the day. and dwelt on the importance fa of man working in harmony with God for _j the salvation of souls. 1126 Conn. Ave., Star Branch.

Gin and Takomi Inspire Party of ~~ Negroes and Police Arrive. ? A wild, weird and unmusical ""ante- *3 dawn tea" was In progress yesterday ^ morning, at a yakomi joint down on _J lower Pennsylvania avenue when Policemen Newkirk, McCarthy and Kelley of A1 the sixth precinct made their way round 6 the corner from the dismal and unso- _J ciable residential section of their beats and proceeded to take things easy after the strenuous work of the early night. The police had just about settled themselves against convenient awning poles, when discords of sounds confounded their ears. A whisky tenor was ascendant in the inharmonious chorus. "It's the Holly Rollers," announced Kelley, straightening up. "Owid wid yes," said McCarthy. "It's an Orangeman's wake." "Forget it, the bunch of you." announced Newkirk, decisively. "Them's the brickyard quartet. And they've put gin in the Chink grub. It's our move-'' The trio proceeded valiantly to the entry and then with a rush bounded up the stairs to the second floor, where the songs rose almost to ethergal heights. vjnce in xn? aoor, mey gave a Biern < warning to keep quiet and not move and < the bluecoats had time to count the round- * up. There were twenty-four colored men J and women sitting about tables, alter- 4 nating a fork full of yakomi with & hefty < swing from a pint bottle, of which there < were many. And everybody was in song. < After a conference and a general ques- w tioning, thirteen of the party were lock- ? ed up charged with disorderly assembly. ? The others were summoned as government witnesses. At the station house eleven of the baker's dozen deposited $3 collateral for appearance, which was forfeited this morning. The two cashless.ones Felix Slznmes and Flossie Bird, were adjudged guilty in the Police Court today and fined $5. Flossie's release was furnished by friends. Felix took his fifteen days. "Dem ossifers has a grudge agin me," said Felix sorrowfully, as he re-entered the court dock. "Dey gits me all de time, fo' nothin'. I reckon Ah's got to lib down in de fift' precinct fo' safety w'en i gits out." ???
