Emancipation Day Exercises War Crowded With Many Brilliant Scenes, Which Showed the Prog res of the Race Along Many Lines Dr. W. B. Johnson's Stirring Address. At the recent emancipation celebra tion in rittsburg, which was witnessed by more than 7,000 people. Dr. W. Bishop Johnson, the celebrated Bap tist divine from Washington, was the principal speaker. The occasion was one of the most notable ever conduct ed by the colored people of Pittsburg, and the mammoth parade of floats, representing every trade and craft, with citizens in automobiles and car riages, was a picturesque sight Mayor Mage and other prominent citizens of Pittsburg made addresses, and the whole affair was under the direction of a committee of well known colored citizens, headed by Bev. Dr. R. C. Fox, pastor of Carron Street Baptist church. Dr. Johnson's address was & com prehensive review of tile slave Ques tion, particularly In i& bearing upon the dvll war, and a strong and force ful exposition of the duties and re sults of emancipation, upon the life of the Negro race and the American na tion. Dr. Johnson laid down the great principle hat morai right is omnipo tent and no man or government of men can resist it Just what emancipation meant to tfie Negro, coming as he did fresh from the horrors of slavery, was de scribed in a vivid and convincing manner by the speaker, wbo was like wise iempTiatlc in enunciating certain obligations and duties his new found freedom imposed upon him. Dr. John son's speech was, in part, as follows: Viewed is to Its results, the femxneipa tlon proclamation was an. oversbadowias ana glorious success. It, united thefrtesda of the Union. It tbrewinto flespairfnc forces new life. It brought Into the ar mies of the Union as by magic ISO.COO sol diers from the 'enfranchised race. JCt was the deathblow to slavery. It was the fin ishing stroke of the rebellion. The Immortal Lincoln was in no sense a smart erer. Ha was a profound resoa er, learned in the law. He studied and understood the constltntioa of bis coun try. He did not issue m. proclamation for Tnrt or to h YtantnA t He did not toy with .the mighty con cerns of the republic. His hvery act was governed by the slncerest convictions, guided by conscience. He was f"'n"My a statesman, and patriotism and heroism were his crowning virtues. The emancipation of the slaves was the most Important and forreaching as wen as the most equitable and humane fact recorded In. American history. Nothing has occurred in the long and eventful his tory of the republic like the breaking of slavery shackles from the souls and bodies Of the American bondsmen. It affected the American people legally, morally, sociologically and spiritually aa no other thing had done or has done since. It was the culmination of a long series of struggles between national self respect national purity of conscience and national greed and selfishness. Forty-seven years have elapsed. The American Negro, while hampered by prej udice, poverty and proscription, has had time enough to show himself a blessing or a curse. Have the conditions of free dom exhausted him? Has he assimilated as a man and citizen? Does he antago nize the Just Ideals and traditions of the American people? He is interwoven into the being of the nation, in its llfeblood. its homes, its schools, its Industries and enterprises, its victories and defeats. Its legislatures cannot enact a law. its courts render a decision, its political parties gain a vlo tory. without considering him. He Is a permanent element of American life, not dangerous to her well being, be cause he is a Christian and progressive; not vicious, because he is industrious and rapidly becoming Intelligent, not a pau per, because he Is a taxpayer on over 900.000,000 in property One of the most essential elements of racial strength the Negro must have now is an exalted race pride. The Negro wbo Is ashamed of his race ought to be driven out and marked as a traitor. It should be the highest ambition of every black man to Invest the race with honor, dignity and power. We have noth ing of which to be ashamed. Forty-seven years of freedom read like a romance. The Negro has no primrose path for the future. He must rise on his merits every time. He must make himself an indis pensable factor in American life and con tribute the best citizenship and sterling worth Into the community in which he Uvea. He must simply compel the community to recognize bis honesty and Industry not by a servile, bat in band policy, which U more hypocritical than real and which costs TiiiTt self respect and the respect of all his neighbors, but a manly, straight forward course that shows him to be re liable, honest industrious, virtuous and law abiding. "We must organize In business, religion, society, against lawlessness and. crime. for the protection of home, church, polit ical right and every other thing that la sacred to the man and the citizen.

Mar guerite BandalL THE BOUQUET OF WINE. blsmarck Wanted Champagne Barrels as War Indemnity. Germany's governmental policy is to encourage the exports of brain, labor, sunshine, air and water. There is nothing in sugar, in alcohol, but car bon, gathered from the air. but hydro gen and oxygen gathered from the rainwater, transformed by the sun into beet plants, grown In fields, tilled and wielded by band, the beet pulp being transformed by other bands and skilled knowledge into sugar and al cohol. Denmark and Holland export butter which takes nothing from the soil. The French Import Asiatic silk, weave it at Lyons and export the fin- ished product They export wine by, analysis 87 per cent water. 10 per cent alcohol and 0.04 per cent aroma and bouquet Water and alcohol take noth-1 log from the soil, but the aroma makes the wine worth from $10 a pound down. In the peace negotiations between Bismarck and the French in 1871 It was not the money indemnity, it was not the loss of territory, that pro longed negotiations. Bismarck be thought hlmtelf to demand 5,000 empty old champagne barrels. Impregnated t with the aroma, the bouquet producing ferment and this the French reruseo. They had consented to pay $1,000,000, 000. they broken heartedly gave up Al fdee and Lorraine, but the bouquet of their priceless wines Bismarck should not have, and in the end they compro mised on five barrels. The French were instinctively governed by super nal common sense. Engineering Mag azine. TALKING PICTURES. Edison's Kinetophone Capable of Re producing Opera. Thomas A. Edison recently gave a demonstration at his laboratory in New Jersey of the "talking moving pictures." It was successful, but he thfrifc be needs one year more to so Improve the mechanism that grand opera can be reproduced. As finally explained tie phenomenon of a moving picture of actors whose movement of lips was reproduced in speech as on a stage was this: There are two Instruments, one pho tographic and one iphonograptilc, one giving the moving lifelike picture and the other accompanying tveryv move ment with the words. Both macfilnes were synchronized, "locked" together, like the sending and receiving instru ments in close telegraphy. Thfclr con nection was Instantaneous. The mov ing picture talked. The camera was operated fifteen feet from the screen. The recording pho nograph is eight feet back of the Screen. The difficulty of having films and sounds correspond was overcome by having the phonograph controlled by an electromagnet operated top. the. moving picture operator. And at the time he begun cranking the films to the speed of sixteen pictures a second the phonograph was oeued by the electromngii-t. Economy of Concrete.

It can be built in one-half the time re quired for a brick shaft, and once constructed the concrete shaft requires practically no repairs. Elizabeth's Keform. Queen Elizabeth In the last year of ner reign was much concerned as to the expenses of the royal household. According to a document in the public record office, she ordered a comparison to be made between the expenditure incurred in the third and the forty third years of her reign, when "yt was found that in bread, beare. wyne, wood, coles, wax lights, torches, tal low lights and meetes and other allow ances of Incidents, necessaries, car riages and wages 12.000 ($60,000) per Annum at least more was spent and no sufficient warrant for the increase.
