TUSKEGEE’S WORTHY APPEAL Principal Moton’a Effort to Spread Christmas Cheer Among Children. The following letter of appeal, issued from the Tuskegee (Ala.) institute by Dr. Robert R. Moton, principal, is a worthy one, to which, it is hoped, many will respond liberally. Dr. Moton says: “The late Dr. Booker T. Washington, founder of the Tuskegee institute, year by year appealed to generous friends for Christmas remembrances of one kind and another to be distributed through him to the colored children of the south, who without such Christ mas remembrances would have noth ing to remind them of the Christmas season. “Floods, the boll weevil and Indus } trial conditions generally among the > farming classes have brought about a rather depressing state of affairs. Many people are in actual distress and want, . while in hundreds and thousands of ■ homes there will be little to indicate t that Christinas is a time of joy and • blessing. Anything whatsoever, no - matter how inexpensive, will brighten l a situation otherwise largely unrelieved t by any cheering ray. “I shall be glad to serve as did Dr. Washington—that is, to act as the in termediary through whom the public [ may transmit their gifts to these chil dren and to take pains to see that they > reach those who are worthy, dlstribut i ing them over as wide a section of the south as possible through Tuskegee off shoot schools, graduates, former stu dents, Jeanes fund workers, etc. R.

Question of Blavery Split Denomination Bsventy-two Years Ago—Prominent Loaders of Both Races Are Members of Commission Called to Convene In Baltimore on Dec. 28. By HORACE D. SLATTER. Asheville, N. C.—The joint commis sion of the Methodist Episcopal church and the Methodist Episcopal Church South will meet in Baltimore Dec. 28 to bring about if possible the union of these two great branches of Metho dism. This merger, discussed pro and con with varied warmth and emotions during the past twenty years, has been rendered probable by legislative action of the general conferences of the two churches. Just what effect the union of these churches will have upon the more than 850,000 Negro communicants of the Methodist Episcopal church is prob lematical and is attracting consider able attention among thoughtful people of the race as the time for the commls slon meeting approaches. The original one body of Methodists suffered division In 1844 over the fact that a white bishop became involved in slavery by marrying a wife who had one Negro girl named Kitty as a slave. Thus seventy-two years ago the white people in the Methodist Episcopal church, north and south, parted com pany, with the Negro as the inuocent occasion of the division. Now that the reunion of these two branches of Meth odism is Imminent the relation of the Negro to the reunited church is one of the Innocent causes involved. Upon the commission representing the Methodist Episcopal church are two prominent men of the race, Dr. Robert E. Jones, editor of the Southwestern Christian Advocate, New Orleans, La., and Dr. I. Garland Penn, correspond ing secretary of the Freedman's Aid society, Cincinnati. Drs. Jones and Penn represent the ministry and laity respectively upon the commission, but beyond that they are the sole repre sentatives of the 350,000 Negroes in the Methodist Episcopal church, whose fortunes in a large measure are to be effected by the final conclusions of the commission. It Is quite the understanding that these distinguished Negro leaders were placed upon the commission in order that the Interests of the Negro mem bers should be safeguarded. The as signment Is an important and responsi ble one, for there has been no such historic commission touching the re ligious and educational life of the na tion since emancipation. Holding briefs for the 350,000 Negro members, they stand unique and alone and yet hold their commissions from members who are organically a part of one of the great churches and who, in theory, should not be considered apart from the other members. Both the Methodist Episcopal church and the Methodist Episcopal Church South subscribe to a plan of unifica tion by reorganlzation, in which each, it is supposed, will lose its identity in the unified church. Both have stated their positions as to the Negro. The southern church prefers that the 850,- 000 Negroes in the Methodist Episcopal church shall be organised info a sepa rate and Independent body, holding only fraternal relations to the unified white body, if such union should be accom plished. The Method hit Episcopal church at its general conference in Saratoga last May stated*lts position as follows: That the Negro should be a part ot the reunited church, with representation conference, and support Old Colony Hall 28th AND DOWNING Jan.

Jones and Penn are in distinguished company However momentous the situation con fronting them, the affairs of the peo ple they represent are In capable hands. No church In which there are colored people ever recognised the race In such a conspicuous way, but these men are well worth it, and there la no question but that they will measure up to every demand.
