Work of Tuakegee Unlver8ttr-Be-
lleve (he Race Problem Will be Solved
by Industrial Edncatlon.
An able and brilliant address by
Booker T. Washington, the great negro
educator, was listened to by the stu
dents of Yale university last night In
ISattel chapel. During his address Mr.
Washington confined himself to out
lining the work accomplished in found
ing and building up the Tuskegee unl-
verslty in Alabama, of which he is pres
ident, and In describing Its direct and
practical effect in lifting the negro pop
ulation of the south into a condition of
thrift and self-respect. He is an ex
.tremely vigorous and earnest speaker,
and his arguments were pointed with
apt and witty Illustrations.
Mr. Washington was educated at the
Hampden institute In Virginia, where
he worked his way through and there
I he gained the inspiration to go down
among the most ignorant of his people
in the black belt in Alabama. He be
gan in 1881 in a shanty with thirty stu
dents, and now the Institution numbers
over 1,100 men and women, who come
from twenty-seven states, from Africa,
Cuba, Porto Rico and other foreign
countries. The university numbers
eighty-six instructors, Twenty-eight
different industries are taught there,
and the forty-two buildings were erect
ed by the etudents themselves.
"My ceoDle are not yet civilized
enough to be subject to nervous pros
tration," said Mr. Washington, "and
the doctor who understands their physi
cal condition must be skilled in treating
fevers and blood disturbances rather
than diseases of the brain . Just so in
the matter o education, the teacher
. who would strike the needs of the peo
ple must at this stage train the hands j
, Instead of the mind. Not neglecting the
mind either, but make their education
of an Industrial nature, above all, teach
them the lesson that labor by the hand
Is not degradation. If there has been
one thing more than another that has
dragged down the south, injuring the
whites eaually with the blacks, It is
that labor has been considered degrad
ing. "Two blessings came to the negro
during his 250 years of slavery. The
first Is, that through all that time the
white man did business with the
black man. and the second is, that it
paid to make skilled mechanics of
them. To-day our people have a tre
mendous advantage because in matters
of business they are in level ground
with white men.and can win respect ac
cording to their business abilities. Since
the war the skilled laborers of slavery
times have died out, and their places
have been largely filled by enterprising
whites from the north. It is therefore
in Industrial education that the salva
tion of our people lies.
"They do not need charity. Where In
.any part of this country on the street
corners do you find a black hand
stretched out asking for charity? I
have been eating and working and
Bleeping with these people for . twenty
years, and what they need Is teachers
to instruct them in habits of thrift, how
to cultivate cotton and corn, and to
build up houses and bank accounts.
One black man in each community
with such an industrial education work
ing among my people and teaching
them what he knows will settle the race
problem in a way that presidents and
congresses are unable to do."
SIDE-LIGHTS 0N GLASGOW.
'The Bright Side.
Glasgow has been and is justly called
"the second city of the British empire."
In every particular save one, this
busy .Jiaunt 'of toiling thousands fully
deserves the title. The saving point is
in the ehip-building industry, in which
Bhe stands pre-eminently first.
Comparisons, they say, are odious and
etatietics are. a weariness of the'tlesh.
Otherwise we might adduce figures in
proof of this contention. Ehe fact,
however, is bo obvious exen to the cas
ual reader of the dally papers, and Is so
well-known o the majority' that it re
quires not the proof of dry and weari
some figures. Since the first steamboat
was launched on the Clyde, and since
the advent of iron as a material for
building ships. Glasgow took the first
place as a pioneer in all that concerns
iron ship-building and has ever since
held it. One need only sail up the mud
dy waters of the C)yde when the yards
are in full swing to gain an idea of the '
extent of the industry. On either hand
are forests of spiles forming the womb
from which many a noble odean liner is
born and thousands of busy men mak
ing merry music "with clink of ham
mers closing rivets up." Every class o
eea-going vessel is built in Glasgow,
from the graceful challenger for the
America's cup to the iatest type of battle-ship;
from the ferry-bnat to the
"Campania" type. In number of ves
sels produced in tonnage, in value, any
ship-building returns of Great Britain
will prove Glasgow easily in the first
place. But while an easy first in ship
building, ehe holds a no mean place in
other industries. In iron-working such
as girder-building, engine-building, ma
rine, railway and station; textile manu
factures, cotton, linen and woolen;
chemical manufactures and others she
makes at least a good second to any
'other city of the empire. In fact it Is
an open question if she does not stand
first in girder building as well as ship
building. From industry to commerce
is but a single step, and if industry has
made Glasgow, Glasgow has in turn
made her commercial pulse felt in eve
ry corner of the globe. Not a sea or
ocean but bears her merchantmen to
foreign shores; not a port but has heard
the singing tones of the Scottish sailor;
not a land but bears the imprint of
Glasgow's commerce in bridge or build
ing, street or home; not a market or ex
change but has to reckon with Glas
gow's products. Sufficient to mention
that in the leading towns of Australia,
Cape Colony, India, China, Japan and
Canada are branches of the larger
wholesale warehouses of Glasgow,
while in all the principal cities of the
world are agents, for her textfte manu
factures. These things alone would
make the city great; her industries and
her commerce, and be her bright side to
many a one who never knew her per
sonally. But while to the money-maker
she can possess no greater charms
than these, she has an equally bright
side to an impartial mind. To the holiday-maker
and sight-seer Glasgow la
always interesting, fair or foul. On a
clear day a ramble round the city would
amply repay any lover of architectural
beauty and historic associations. The
buildings of Glasgow, principally the
municipal buildings, (city hall), post
office, the university, the cathedral, the
exchang the fine art galleries, numer
ous bank and office buildings, great
blocks of wholesale warehouses, news
paper buidlngs, railway stations,
churches and private dwellings deserve
more than a passing glance. They all
bear the stamp of substantiality first
and ornamental beauty after. In fact
even In her ornament she displays her
love of strength. But they must all be
seen, her buildings, to be appreciated,
A halting pen could never dare at
tempt a description of the many find
varied beauties of the municipal build
ings, outside and in, the finest in the
world perhaps; the reverent associa
tions clinging round the grand old ca
thedral; or the hallowed feelings wMch
creep into the heart as one steps inside
the classic precincts of Gilmore hill, the
alma mater of Glasgow's noblest sons.
And this brings us to what many con
sider the brightest side of Glasgow, viz:
Her government and her theology. She
is indeed happy in her government, uni
versally acknowledged to be the best
governed city of the world, and held up
as a pattern to such a modern model as
New York. Glasgow bears out the
Scriptural aphorism, "By their acts
shall ye know them." She has ever
striven to be honest in her dealings be
tween ruler and ruled, ever seeking the
greatest good for the greatest number,
and ever ready to adopt and put In
practice the latest tenets of practical
Christianity, Christian socialism call
it what you will to benefit the people.
The city of Glasgow now owns her own
water, gas, tramways horse and elec
tricelectric telephone and electric
lighting, parks, out-door gymnasiums
and recreation grounds, and. has Just
finished what promises to be the finest
art galleries in Britain. There Is no
limit to her aspirations, which seem to
be to have her city government run
really and truly "for the people and
by the people." If the government of
Glasgow gives her such a bright side to
the political economist and all Interested
in city politics, her theology appeals
equally strong to a numerous body all
over the world. Ever since, St. Mungo
first preached the word beside the river
Clyde, and the time that Glasgow
adopted for her motto, "Let Glasgow
flourish by the preaching of the word,"
she has been the very heart of theology
to theologic Scotland, and the profes
sors of theology at her university to
day are acknowledged the leaders, the
head and front, in this branch of study.
Then who does not know, has not heard
or heard of, the great army of preach
ers who have adorned the aulpit of
Glasgow and the pulpit of the world.
Such men, who have graced pulpit and
platform, court and cottage, who have
been read and studied in all the great
seats of learning in the world, have
thrown a wonderful glamor over many
lives and many lands, and left a trail
rof brightness in their wake that shall
be Indeed difficult to obliterate. Small
wonder that in many a foreign land and
distant clime thiB brightness appears as
the bright side of Glasgow.
We may not close without returning
for a moment to the holiday-maker.
He or she must not omit' the parks, of
which there are five, nor the cemeteries
in their peregrinations. On a rainy day
one could spend a few hours with profit
and pleasure In the Botanic gardens,
which are easily reached by tram-car
from the center, of the city. The great
Exposition, which is to be opened in
May, is built in the most romantic of
the parks, Kelvlngrove, and the many
visitors to Glasgow during the summer
of 1901, "will find quite a few pleasant
corners in this grand old park. The
other narks are well worth a visit, If
onlv for their floral displays. The
monumental examples of the carver's
art in the cemeteries will also repay
more than a passing glance. The style
and reverence of design are typical of
the deeply religious nature of the peo
ple. And, In conclusion, the people
themselves, that is.the better and mid
dle classes, are the most hospitable and
open-hearted one could wish to meet
anywhere. Kindly and shrewd, the
hardy characteristics of the hlghlander
blended with the business-loving; in
stincts of the Southron, the average
Glasgow man has made and Is making
a name for himself at home and abroad.
His is the nature and character that
has made Glasgow what it is to-day.
The sturdiest and most enterprising of
all the daughters of Scotland may
Glasgow always flourish by the preach
ing of the word, and may neither her
substance nor. her shadow ever grow'
less. May her sons and daughters rise
up to call her blessed and spread
throughout Christendom and heathen
dom a reflection of the bright side of
Glasgow. JOHN JAPP.

The mills of the Patterson Ribbon Co. are closed. And the ribbon market for the time, is topsey turvey. For the
rise and fall of this great jilk ribbon mill has brought to the public what undoubtedly is the.. biggest crisis and the lowest
prices in fine, all silk ribbons for' several years back. Patterson, N. J., is called the Lyons of America. In its output
it fairly rivals the great silk city of France. And the Patterson Ribbon Co. was not only one6 of the foremost of Patter
son's industries, but one of the six leading makers of fine ribbons in the United States. But the company was financed
cr backed by a quasi-banking company. By degrees, the latter put up
more and more capital. Then they suddenly woke up to find that they
had to take control in order to protect their interests. This meant that
they had a nboon mill on their hands with
