The lecture by Dr. Charles Eastman at the Bethany church, last Friday even Ing, under the auspices of the Woman’* Club, drew out a large audiencb as it always the case with events under their management It was an address worthy of the great reputation held by this noted writer and spetker. His words were chosen with great care as to their accuracy but his voice, especially lu the most Impressive portions, was low and did not entirely till the audience room, thus providing the only criticism which cou’.d be indulged in and this only ap plicable to those who sat at some die tBnce from the speaker. Dr. Eastman’s view point is that of the American In dian and bis sympathies are largely with his own race, whom he rightly re gards as the only genuine Americans. The Indian, however, of which he spoke, whose oustoms. character, thoughts and aspirations he described was not of the race with which we are now most familiar It was rather the Amerian of old, the so called savage, as he was before his contact with Euro pean peoples, before he beoame subject ed to influences which seem to have de stroyed the best and left the worst of his characteristics Dr. Eastman oc cupies muob the same relation to llu> American indian that Booker W ashing ton does to the negro. He is the more interesting because he is the one striking exception to the great mass of his own race today. Mrs. Alice SV Steward and Mrs. Alice L. Wadsworth served as committee of arrangements and Mrs, Alice L. Wads worth, Mrs. Ada A. Vlles, Mrs Julia Robbins and Mrs Lizzie A Marble served as hostesses and OBhers.
