Hooker Washington when passing
through Chicago some months ago
talked In an animated way for nn hour
I or moro to a representative of the Roc
ordHciald about the subject that Is
i now exercising tho minds of some ot
the extremists In tho South tho social
relations between tho white man and
the negro It Is safe to say that It
these men could meet and talk with
cnce such na hns fallen to tho lot of
very few among us
You want me to put my linger on
tho great vital point In nil this contro
versy Very well It Is this ho said
Wo must see to It that we tench the
negro to make himself n part of the
community where ho lives and that In
eve straightforward honorable man
ner he makes friends with tho white
man who Is1 his nextdoor neighbor
But I nAked him do not the
should like other race be Judged by
Its best types rather than by its worst
Hut would It bo fair to Judge even
by that standard
No he answered It would not
Judgment must not bo passed upon the
race too noon For more than twenty
years after we became a free people
there was uncertain groping In tho wil
derness Tho policy of both North and
South as well au that of the central
government was both halting and un
certain The problem wan without a
parallel tho history of tho wmM No
path hall been hewn through the wil
derness which anyone felt absolutely
safe In following It was to bo antici
pated In tho Urat generation nl least
that tho tendency among n largo num
ber would be to seek the shadow In
stead of the substance to grasp after
the mere signs of the highest civiliza
tion Instead of the reality j to bo lea
Into the temptation of believing that
they could secure Inn few years that
which It ban taken other races thous
ands of years to attain
went on I have seen them In their
homes on their farms In the shop In
the factory In tho mines in heir
stores In the churches In the Jails In
the penitentiary and I have talked
with the white people who wore onto
their master and now their neighbors
After this Inspection combined with
my experience and observation In tho
heart of the black belt of the South
covering n period of nineteen year I
havo no hesitation In asserting that
there is constant progressprogress
that Is tangible visible IndKnutnble
Anyone who has had daily oppor
tunltyof studying my race nt first hand
cannot fall to Gain the Impression tint
there pro Indisputable evidenced that
the race IH settling down to n hard ear
nest common sense view of lib that It
IH fast 1 t Ing that a race lllo nn In
dividual must pay for wo thins tint
It gets the price of beginning at the
bottom of the social scale and working
up gradually naturally to the highest
civilization jixnggomtfd Impres
sions that the first years of freedom
the In up Let us teach the negro
youth that any Individual or race that
cherishes nice hatred and practices
cruelty IB crushing and narrowing the
highest aspirations of the human Houl
Some may call this cowardice Ho
It no but It Is tho Wild of cowardice
that the Christ taught nnd practiced
nnd IH the Wild of cowardice that will
win our cause
What then do we glean ns to our
Immediate duty and what la the safe
nnd wise policy for the future There
can bt but one answer On on right
on with the work of education educn
tlon of the head hand and heart In
every corner of the South
My race needs the help and sym

Mr Washington and were prepared to I
sum up the result without the bitter
elave day bins that characterizes them
now they would see In the future a bet
ter era for the colored man and might
gather too some little leaven of hu
man sympathy from thocontact
The famous prcildent of Tuskegee Is
so earnest In his speech and has so
much of genuine honesty about every
thing he does that nobody who talks
with him can ever fall to become Im
pressed He Hays nothing at random
You feel while you are listening that
every word has been carefully weighed
and Is based on a bitter uphill expert
Southerners who are most bitter
against you believe that they draw the
reasons for their enmity from what
goes on In their midst
In his answer there was no trace of
anger or resentment It Is to be re
gretted he raid that those who pre
sume to fipcuk with authority on the
advancement ot the negro do not In
more cases actually visit him whore
they can see his better life Few of the I
people who make discouraging state
ments regarding him have ever taken
the trouble to Inspect his homo life his
school life his church life or his busi

misleading to Judge any race or com
munity by Its worst The negro race
When you consider nil these condl
tlotiH It is plain that Instead of thirty
five or forty years of growth the negro I
has had only about twenty In which to
demonstrate to the world what ho Is
capable of becoming The negro has I
hardly had time yet to collect the bn k

buy a home and settle down to ivgu ar I

Washington Oct 23It is definite
ly decided that Senator William P
rr > e of Maine will not bo at the
head of the Senate committee on for
eign relations during the coming ses
sion of Congress Mr Frye prefers to
take the chairmanship of the commit
tee on commerce as ho can In that
position better direct the campaign for
ship subsidies which will be one of the
great Issues of the session Mr Fryc
has been pressing the subject of ship
subsidies for twentyfive years he says
nnd he means to pass his new bill at
this session It the hardest kind of Tight
Ing can do it
t Senator Cullom of Illinois Is the
I ranking member of the committee on
foreign relations and Is entitled to the
chairmanship upon the withdrawal ot
Senator Frye It Is generally believed
that the traditions of the Senate will
not be violated and that Mr Cullom
will have the place However strong
pressure Is being brought to bear on
him to make way for Senator Lodge
Senator Loop la a close friend ot the
President and It was said soon after
the death ot President McKlnley that
Mr IoJRe would most certainly be
made chairman of the foreign relations
committee pr he given u place In the
cabinet Still the President has not
tried to Influence the Senate at all In
this matter Senator Lodge has rcrvcd
ievernl years on the committee quite
as long In fact as Senator Cullom but
the latter had been longer it sena
tor than had Mr Lcdcu at tho time
both were appointed to the committee
and therefore his name was placed
that on the list The committee on
foreign relations will be now more Im
portant than ever because of the Isth
mian canal trcity and the numerous
reciprocity treaties which will come
before It during the winter
The new canal treaty It is said In
London grants tho United States all U
asked without compensation The ta

j A community of birds had tiblleh d
themselves In a certain grove birds of
many kinds orioles robins blackbird
bluebirds catbirds There were three
pairs of orioles each pair with their
nest In a different tire but all clone
together and nil on good terms And
they were on good terms with their
neighbors too though the male black
bird occasionally got Into trouble by
coming too near the orioles nests
One day the whole communjty xyas
found to be In nn uproar BcreamlnU
nnd flying about In a state of great
excitement the clue of which was
won discovered One of the female
orioles had got her head caught In the
slurp fork of u limb and there she
hung fluttering nnd unahe to help
The birds of every kind had assem
bled around her and were as much
excited and as Incapable of rendering
assistance ns n crowd of human beings
would have been under similar circum
stances They merely drilled about
from place to place and fluttered and
vrcamed all that Is to any except
the other two female orioles which
tried to release the captive by dashing
nt her and pulling at her toll feathers
This however seemed only to lodge
her more tightly In the fork
Meanwhile the three mule orioles sat
side by side on a near bv limb not
making n move of any kind The wit
ness of the strange scene was surprised
to see them Inactive at such a time
r fper a
but they must have been taking coun ytttr
eel with each other for presently one
of them flew to tho place where till nit No
nd b
captive was hanging and straddling >
the fork that held her head he caught with

that pulled her free Then he dropped On i
