Pressor S. M. Harden Speaks
Frankly to Natives.
Difficulty Experienced by Europeans In
Dealing With Natives Arises From
Lack of Understanding — The Late
Mary Kingsley Suggested Way of
Avoiding Common Error of Judgment.
Professor S. M. Harden of Lagos.
West Africa, in an admirable address
delivered ut a public meeting of {he
dative Baptists of Lagos recently,
among other things, which we wish we
had space for, said:
“The greatest difficulty that the Eu
ropean— aud by European 1 mean the
white uiun generally—experiences in
his dealings with the natives in the
political as well as the religious life
arises from a want of understanding
of the native character. The white
man does not understand the nati'e.
lie does not try to understand him. Ins
customs and institutions. It is so much
easier to cut the Gordion knot of any
thing unintelligible in native customs
by branding it as ‘heathenish* and •su
perstitious,* and this is what the white
umn does as a rule.
“It was tin* late Mary Kingsley, a
lady who, although not a missionary,
devoted her life to Africa aud the
Africans, who said that if the Euro
pean would only try to get at the
back of the African mind, to think
black, lie would sec many things in
African customs and institutions to re
spect and admire. The white inau
does not try to do this, and he is there
fore always committing the most seri
ous blunders and coming to the n»**st
i I logical 1 conclusions.
“Take one example: The African
rain doctor and his pretension to lie
able to draw rain from the clouds .ire
a subject of constant ridicule with the
white man. He Is looked ui>on as a
charlatan, an impostor, and the people
who believe in him are credulous fo<'ls.
Now, I am here to tell you that the
white man dries make rain, or at least
lias made rain. It bapi>eued some years
ago when I was in America. In one of
the western or southwestern states is
a large tract of land that would have
been a splendid place for agricultural
purposes but for the fact that scarcely
any rain ever fell there. There was no
method of irrigation found by wbi*h
the land could be watered, and here
was a line tract of country lying .u-e
--less for want of a little rain.
“Captain Dr.venforth, wjio thought
out things and did them, set to work
to see if he could not produce rain by
artificial means. In turning "the sub
ject over In his mind the thought oc
curred to him that after every great
battle, especially battles in which
heavy artillery was used and there was
a great deal of cannonading, there was
a heavy downpour of rain, as the
battle of Waterloo, when the bel iger
ents went from the field drenched in a
heavy shower. Why was this? He
came to the conclusion that the <ron
cussion in the air caused by the dis
charge of heavy guns, together with
the volume of smoke, created some at
mospheric disturbance which resulted
in rain.
“lie had no heavy guns to let off. but
he got some detonators that went off
with a loud report, attached them to a
number of kites which he sent up into
tlie sky. timing them to explode after
the expiration of some minutes, and
patiently waited to see what would
happen. The result was a success l»e
--yornl his most sanguine expectations.
Itain descended in a few hours, i
watched the papers to see what use
had been ftiade of the invention. i»nt I
saw no further mention made of it. it
inny have been that the cost of the ma
terials was so heavy ns to make the ap
plication of the invention to general
use practically impossible. Now you
do not laugb at that man and Ids In
vention. Why? Because you under
stand his methods. He explains them
to you. He proves to you that, given
certain conditions, certain causes must
produce certain results, and you are
satisfied and call that man a genius.
“The African, on the contrary, hides
the secret of his Invention, anil -mail {
blame to film for doing so. The white
man has Ids invention protected by
patent rights which are renewable, and
before the time comes when he cun no
longer renew them he has enriched?
himself for life and Ids children after
him. The black man lias no such pro
tection; hence he surrounds himself
with mystery In order more effectual
ly to guard Ills secret, which, he- be
queaths as n valuable legacy to-his chil
“The white man’s which be
explains and you understand, you call
science; the black man's, that you do
not understand, you coll fetishism and
tlie work of the rtevit. As in teni|»oral
so In spiritual matters the white man
does not understand the manners of
the African.”

R»v. J. P. Watson and Thomas Gannon
Wars Comrades In War.
The Rev. J. Preston Watson of Pueb
lo, Colo., told recently a very Interest
ing story of his early boyhood as a
slave and of how he formed the ac
quaintance of the now venerable Thom
as Gannon of Monte Vista, Colo. Both
men are now quite aged, the former a
retired * Methodist minister, the latter
a retired soldier.
As the story runs, it was Mr. Gan
non, then a first lieutenant in the Ninth
Missouri cavalry and later promoted
to captain, fifty-four years ago, who
formed a liking fbr Watson, who was
a boy fugitive, and took him in.
Throughout the war, until the close
four years later, Watson remained
with Gannon. Then they separated,
with the understanding that Watson
was to Gannon’s home and un
der his Instruction learn the tinner’s
But unfavorable circumstances inter
vened. Although in the years each
frequently tried to find a trace of the
other, their efforts proved in vain un
til, in 1913, Mr. Watson, then a veteran
pastor who had done nearly forty
years’ service for the African Metho
dist church, learned that Captain Gan
non was living near Leadville. This
being in the district which Watson
toured, as presiding elder, he renewed
his search and finally found Captain
Gannon, a feeble, gray haired man.
at that timu just recovering from an
“Of course neither of us knew the
other,” remarked the Rev. Mr. Watson
in telling of the meeting. “When I
knew Gannon in wartimes he was a
square shouldered young man with a
long black mustache and bushy black
hair. Half a century later I found
him an old man, little resembling his
former self. Rut the old friendship
still was there. lie seemed mighty
glad to see me. and for two hours we
talked over old times. Then later ho
came to my house and we sat up all
night long talking old times.”
Reminiscently in his letter received
but recently Mr. Cannon said: “Again
I recall an incident —the colored boy
who wandered Into camp, a fugitive
from slavery, meek, humble, seeking
protection. My boys in blue treated
him with kindness and sympathy, and
I soon realized his faithful services;
honest, truthful and diligent, employ
ing his leisure moments in the efforts
to learn to read that he might be help
ful to - his fellow freedmen. Now, bow
well he has succeeded—from a humble
servant to a devoted servant of the
Lord and zealous In the uplift of his

Club Named For Famous Abolitionist
Plans to Erect Monument.
Great interest was shown at the pub
lic meeting held Sunday afternoon,
Oct. 17, at the Hush A. M. E. Zion
church, in New York, under the aus
pices of the Harriet Tubman Neigh
borhood dub. Mrs. Marie Jacksou-
Stuart, president of the organization,
railed the meeting to order and after
ward presented Mr. Fred It. Moore,
who acted ns master of ceremonies.
After speaking of the object of the
club, its past record and present plain*.
Mr. Moore presented as the first speak
er the Rev. F. A. Cullen, pastor of the
Salem M. K. church. The cluh has
formulated plans for placing a statue
of tlie late Harriet Tubman in some
public park or some public highway in
Manhattan. To this end the ltev. Mr.
Cullen pledged Ids support.
Mrs. M. C. Lawton emphasized the
importance of perpetuating, tlio memo
ries of men and women who have
borne the racial'burdens In the-hent of
the day. She said she was glad-that
Harriet Tubman did not live In this
day, when <|imlideations for a- life of
service to the human family ace pitch
ed on such high mid superficial planes
ns to have rendered her efforts useless:
that she was glad that colored men
and women are beginning to realize
merit and worth; that, in order to de
termine who is who, one him to have a
broad conception of man’s makeup
nee- him from, every angle. Circum
stances. she said, social, standing and
ancestral fame all sink into tosignifi
ennee when compared, to m real life of
John E. Bruce of Yonkers. N. Y..
gave a most interesting history of Har
riett Tubman, telling of her life’s
work, which resulted in rescuing over
3,000 slaves. J. Frank Wheaton de
livered an eloquent address on the
lives of the colored heroes and hero
ines and urged ail present to contrib
ute toward the erection of the pro
posed statue. In a short but pointed
talk the Rev. Charles Martin. D. I>.
voiced the sentiments expressed by the
previous speakers and said that the
name of Harriett Tubman would graco
the pages of any history.
After substantial evidence in pledges
and otherwise the meeting was brought
to n fitting close by Bliss Josephine
Holmes, one of the public schoolteach
ers In Manhattan, who beautifully de
picted the life of Harriett Tubman,
her adventures, etc., and urged her
hearers to emulate the example of this
great woman whose entire life was
given In service to her fellow man.
. Mrs. Caroline Beil-Cullen captivated
the audience with a very sweetly ren
dered vocal solo.
