Man has left us."
All that was mortal of the late
Iiiehard Henry Boyd was placed in
u vault in this city and is resting out
at Greenwood Cemetery, after impressive
services were held over the
remains in the Ryan Auditorium, the
largest public building in the city.
While it was the desire of the family
that the funeral be as simple as possible,
the service of the deceased, the
sphere that he had filled in the race
and denominational ranks made this
desire in its entirety impossible, as
there wore representatives from both
races from various sections of the.
United States who had come to pay
special homage and to add their testimonies
to the life and work of the
The funeral oration was delivered
by l>r. L. L. Campbell, the president

More Fund# Needed to Complete
Building?First Story Finished?
Costs $20,000 Per Month in Erection.
(Preston News Service.)
Winberforce, 0., Sept. G.?The
contract for the erection of a new
Shorter Hall on the site of the old
building erected 57 years ago and
burned down last winter has been
awarded to D. W. McGrath & Sons,
who have been working on" the new
structure for the past three months.
The building is completed up to
the second story, and it is expected
that the workmen will reach the third
story by Thanksgiving, if the work is
not hindered for lack of finances.
In a statement issued by Bishop
Joshua 11. Jones, chairman of the
Trustee Board- ho ?!>vc
tion of Uio building will cost $300,000.
It is n fireproof structure, built
of brick, stone and steel. Modern in
every respect. It will b a live-story
structure and will contain offices for
the university executives, twenty-six
class rooms, commodious music and
science departments, dining hall with
seating capacity of 1,000, an auditorium
with seating capacity of 2,.w0
and dormitory for the accommodation
of -150 girls. We expect to hold I
our next commencement exercises in >
this building. 1
"To finance this great enterprise is
the biggest burden, all things considered,
that has fallen to our raco.
We have been buildhig daily for the
past three months, v.t a cost of $20,000
per month, all lxbor and maUnial
to this time paid .for. The building
is now above the first story and press:ing
hard in the second door.
"Bishops Copjnn, Conner and
Heard are my associates in this great
task. 1 have every reason to believe
that they will give the largest possible
co-operation and sympathetic encouragement.
About $50,000 of the
money in hand has been riiiscd by
the small Third Episcopal district,
and we are neither daunted nor tired.
We need the *>id of the whole connection
and neod it immediately. The
trustees of Wilberforce University
cover the wln.le connection, which
constitutes the controlling party.
Control and responsibility arc correlatives,
both morally and economically,
and the .exercise of x<ne predicates
the exercise of the other. The
assumption and exercise oi control,
while neglecting the responsibility to
support, is to be scorned by every
manly man. rDontrol withw.jt responsibility
cancels the right of control.
By inexorable law the whole church
must help rebuild Wilberforce. Will
you do it? Will you repudiate a
) duty?
j "We, therefore, beg all the bishj
ops, general .officers, miriistrs and
1 laymen to sond in their contributions
at once, so that the w/xrl; on new
Shorter Hall may not stop nor languish.
We heg .that you .dc not wait
nor delay in making your personal
sacrifice in helping us prost?ute this
[ work to completion.

the cost of erection. We au ;, there;fore,
asking the church to roll up a
..collection of half a million dollars
ifor the placing of real old Wilberiforce
at the head of the column in
the educational march of the race.
We believe that .-all lovers of Negro
education, regardless of denomination,
will help us in this enterprise.
Send us such amount as yon have
ability to contribute."

Characterizing as untrue a special
dispatch to the Detroit Evening
News-Journal of August 20th, in
which Jay (>. Ilayden, Washington
correspondent of that -newspaper, declared
that the Dyer Anti-L ynehing
Bill was not constitutional and that
it *vas being used solely as a political
means of holding the Negro vote
in line until after the November elections,
Senator Charles E. Townsend,
?Vf Michigan, has wired the National
Association for the Advancement o'i
SColorcd People to deny the implications
made in the story. The dispatch,
which is quite lengthy, declares
that it is tiie opinion of the
writer that delay by the Senate in
acting on this measure is predicted
on the belief that the otlice of the
Attorney General of the United
States does not believe the bill to bo
constitutional, although the writer of
4-1. - A1 1-1- 1- " * 1 ' *
me ui?>(iuiv!i must or snouiu nave
known that a large part of the favorable
report of the Senate Judiciary
Committee was given over to a
lengthy opinion of the Attorney General
that the Dyer bill is constitutional.
The dispatch further states
that a number "of Republican Senators
who are candidates for re-election
are badly scared. Many of them,
as in the case of Senator Charles E.
Townsend in Michigan, pledged
themselves to vote for the AntiLynching
Bill many months ago; but
they have not lifted their voice in
the Senate in .favor of it, nor otherwise
have made any ell'ort to bring
about its consideration."
The N. A. A. C. P. immediately
sent a copy of this news story to
Senator Townsend and asked him if
he cared to comment on the statements
made therein. He immediate-j
ly wired a reply, addressed to Walter
F. White, assistant secretary of the
N. A. A. C. P., as follows:
"I have your courteous favor of
the 13th with newspaper clipping in
the form of an article by one Jay G.
Ilayden, who is very much interested
in my defeat, and who does not hesitate
to say things'calculated to cm
i oarrass mc. 'J'he Dyor bill has been
| reported by the Committee on the
Judiciary of the Senate and is now
I on the calendar. There has been
absolutely no opportunity to call it
up. Mr. Hayden and everybody else
at all familiar with the circumstances
know that this hill will call for a
good deal of debate. They also know
that while the special matters arc
pending1 before tho Senate we cannot
call up anything that will detract in
any way from the consideration of
these other matters and at this time
of election when every member of
the House and one-third of the Senate
arc up for re-election and in the
midst of their campaigns, no new
controverted matter can be taken up.
