Orleans district, who is recognized as
a leader of hla people In the south.
Dr. Brooks was born In New Orleans
In October, 1808. shortly after the
emancipation of the slaves; hence
when he reached school age there were
to be found in this city good public
schools for children of the race. He
entered the public school under Pro
fessor Arthur P. Williams, who is now
on the teachers’ pension list of the
city. Young Brooks made rapid prog
ress In the public schools and when
he finished was sent to Southern uni
versity, which was then located In this
Dr. Brooks got down to hard work
In the public school, making each day
count for advancement In hi* studies.
He was an active joung man. and,
while it was his desire to have a good
education, yet he had a desire to be
useful in life. lie not only trained his
mind In the common school and college
branches, but became a first class
practical brick mason, and when he fin
ished school he followed his trade for
a long time.
Being a man well trained, he soon be
came the lal>or leader In this section of
the country, and when he reached his
majority, twenty-one years, he was the
guide of 800 men. who regarded his
opinion and respected his leadership
He brought to them Increase In wages
and recognition that they had never
had l)efore. The capitalists of New
Orleans were always ready and will
ing to confer with this young man.
The fact that he was at the bead of
such a largo number of men brought
him Into prominence: hence he became
a political lender in his early life. He
was connected with the Hepubllcnn
party. While he was leader In the
Thirteenth ward, yet his worth spread

leader, a worker In the Sunday school,
a trustee, a steward, and It is said of
him that he at one time was the sex
ton of the church, thereby filling every
position In tlie church. In the Sunday
school while acting as superintendent
he was loved by all the children, and
his was regarded as the leading school
In the city of New Orleans.
It was under Presiding Elder Charles
Augustus and Bishop J. H. Armstrong
that he entered the active ministry In

that he was admitted to membership
in the annual confcrcuce on trial and
went step by step until he was ordnln

Handy of Baltimore, starting out lu
the mission work, then to circuits of
the churches, of which be has pastured

Just as soon as he was In the con

the second time he went as the leader
of his delegation. He believes In prog
ress among the ministers, also believes
in the young man making his place In
the church and state. The Louisiana
conference not only elected him at tin*
bead of the delegation, but Is

Ganaral Ballington Booth Spooks For |
Worthy Now York Institution.
New York. General Ballington
Booth was the chief speaker at. the
January meeting of the Empire i
Friendly Shelter For Girls, held at the ;
headquarter* in this city. For some j
time both the general and Mrs. Booth ;
have taken a keen interest in the work |
and have given it material assistance
whenever it was necessary.
In the summer of 1915, when the
development of the institution was
hindered in one way or another, the
announcement that Mrs. Booth would
speak for the cause brought together
a gathering of over 2,000 persons. So
strong was Mrs. Booth's appeal in be
half of womanhood and so fervently
did she appeal for sympathy and sup
port for the Institution that a good col
lection was taken up at the close of
the meeting.
The work has grown to a point of
more than passing recognition as a
social factor, and the number of girls
to be eared for are demonstrating
their desire for advancement. The need ;
of the home is commending itself to
the various charitable organizations.
General Booth was shown through the
shelter by the superintendent. Miss
Grace P. Campbell, and the president,
Mrs. M. C. Lawton, before leaving this
He expressed himself as being highly
pleased both with the home and its
management. He told of the many i
social activities in which he is engaged
and spoke especially of the homes for j
self respecting, wage earning boys and
girls. These two institutions, be said. 1
were particularly near to him. One '
of the accomplishments cf the meeting j
was the formation of an advisory ;
board of representative and influential
men and women, with General Booth
as chairman.
It was the consensus of opinion of ,
all present that the influence and co- I
operation of General Booth, together j
with those associated with him. will I
mean a step far in advance for the in
stitution. At present there are fifteen
girls in the home and seven or eight
The domestic work throughout the
borne is done by the inmates and in a
most faultless manner. Calls are fre- |
quently made for help from the shelter,
and wherever they obtain employment
they give general satisfaction. Cases j
from the various courts are turned j
over to the home and are satisfactorily
disposed of. Girls from Brooklyn.
Manhattan and •vicinity as well as New
Jersey are received into the home.
On the board of management are j
some of the most representative men
and women in Greater New York A. j

“Birth of * Notion" Misrepresents the
Nation and the Negro Race.
A Topeka (Kan.) disi»atch states that
the state board of censors has barred
the film. “The Birth of a Nation.” from
showing in the state of Kansas. The
report also says that following the
showing of the film to an invited audi
ence W. D. Boss, state superintendent
of public instruction and state movie
censor, rejected the film entire.
Then the state appeal board, consist
ing of Governor Capper, S. M. Brew
ster. attorney general, and J. T. Botkin,
secretary of state, sustained the state
censor, after hearing the arguments of
H. A. Sherman, manager of the film
company. SujH»rintendont Boss Issued
the following statement:
“The picture is rejected because it is
not proj>er. is not instructive, and from
its false title through its tissue of mis
representations of the north, the Negro
and our country's history to the final
culminating travesty which pictures
peace on earth and good will to men as
the outcome of passion, of hate and
murder, it is vicious and immorul—lm
moral not alone in the parts that are
sexually suggestive, but In its whole
revelation of race prejudice and sec
tional bitterness.'*
Manager Sherman announced that he
would take the case to the courts ami
get an Injunction, sometime between
now and the time the reel is scheduled
to be shown in Kansas City.

Success of tfie Rev. Dr. C. S.
English of Mobile, Ala.
L*ft to Provide For Himself and Other
Mamberi of His Family at an Early
Ago, Dr. Cornalius S. English Car-
Had a Hsavy Program of Rssponsi
bilities In His Upward Struggle.
Mobile. Ala.—The Rev. Cornelius 8.
English. D. D., is a recognized leader
of tbe Baptists of Mobile county, in
this state, and has won his way to
prominence by hard work, backed up
by industry and push. He represents
what a man can do if he will only use
his opportunities and ever be ready
and willing to help his fellow man.
Dr. English is a native of Alabama,
and be was born on a farm in Dallas
county in ISG9. He has used his time
to goo<i advantage. He was among
the early pupils of the public schools
of the county, under Lawyer Walter
Cane, who when his health became Im
paired abandoned the practice of law
and entered the educational work In
the public schools.
English soon demonstrated
that he had the ability to carry a pro-
l.i.Y. DB. C. 8. CNGLIsO.
pram of heavy studies, and his teach
ers encouraged him In his efforts. lie
remained in the public school until he
had tlnlshcd the prescribed course of
study. During his preparation to en
ter college his mother died, and it be
came necessary for young English to
go to work hi order to help in the sup
iwrt of his sisters and brothers, who
were left in his care. A younger sis
ter was placed by him hi Selma uni
versity, where she remained until she
had completed the course. In the
mcai.time Mr. English employed pri
vate teachers and continued to study
himself, making wonderful progress.
While working on a farm in ISSO he
was converted and Joined the Baptist
church, where he took an active i>art
in the church and Sunday school work.
He filled every office hi the church,
such as sexton, superintendent of Sun
day school, teacher, deacon, clerk and
pastor. All of this was but preparing
him for his future work in the minis
It was while working on the farm
one day In 1899 that he felt that he
was called to take up the work of the
gospel ministry, and while for a long
time he considered that it was not the
thing for him to do, yet he could not
divorce the thought from his mind. He
tried to get rid of the Idea of preaching
by engaging in other work, but could
not. Finally lie informed his pastor of
his ntention to enter the ministry and
soon afterward preached his first ser
mon. It was a great sermon, and he
soon received authority from the church
to preach.
Eight months after Ills cull to the
ministry he was called to a ehurch in
Mobile, Ala., with a membership of
about 150. After pastorlng the church
for one year he found two other
ehur'-lies wanting him in the same city,
so lie advised them all to unite into one
large church and named it the Dela
ware Street Baptist church of Mobile,
of which he is still minister. The mem
bersldp of this church is now nearly a
thousand and continues to increase un
der Ids leadership. He has charge of
the Baptist church in Pascagoula.
Miss., and one In Bay Minette. The
clergymen of Mobile and vicinity have
recognized his worth to the race am!
denomination and have elected him to
the i>ositiou of moderator of the Mobile
SunMght Baptist association, which is
one of the largest in the state. He was
elected to the positiou six years ago.
and it ha* been on the increase in pop
ularity and influence among the i*eople
ever since.
Dr. English believes In doing things
worth while: hence under his leader
ship lias been brought Into life the Mo
bile Baptist academy for the training
of boya and girls. Thisf school Is young,
yet It is growing and Is developing
young people along religious and edu
cational lines. Dr. English Is much In
terested !n the work of thi3 ochool and
looks after It* Interest in many way*.
Whenever there ts any movement for
the uplift of the race Dr. English la
sure to bo found In the front rank.
