Idea of Xegrroes' ; Moving: to Africa
BIRMINGHAM. ALA.. September IS.—
The feature of the morning session of
the National Negro Baptist Convention
was a report on foreign missions, read by
Rev. L,. G. . Jordan, of Louisville. The re
port dwelt especially. on the need of . ag
gressive "mission work in' Africa, though
the commission discountenanced the; idea
of American negroes moving to Africa 'to
reside. ' and added' that' the; American
negro is in better condition than the ne
gro in any other part of the; world. In
his address. Rev. E. C. Morris, presi
dent of the convention, .urged, the negroes
to talk less about what .they are going
to do. and accomplish more.

Hereafter They Will Be Sum
y : mariiy^Dismissed- for;
Employees of. the city, stationed in or
around the City 'Hall, must riot -indulge
in drink to the extent of inebriation. A
resokuion- ottered ■by i Alderman Adams,
and "adopted by the Committee on Grounds
and Buildings yesterday, provides sum
mary, dismissal of any. suc'u person, .with
out appeal. The order. was directed, to be
sent . out to' all the employees.' *■*■ ■ j ■ >-
The adoption of this resolution was a
compromise that :scved : the.'"6lUcialt- life
of a watchman who had been suspended
for inebriation. He was reinstated, but
with a reprimand added, and eveiv this
was only after" solemn pledges from the
offending '■-'watchman. . - ■ ;■ . -;
The case provoked <ong discussion in
the., committee, and even some, of those
v,-ho favored the' reinstatement of the man
admitted that in doing, so they felt they,
were, neglecting ■ their, duty to. the /city,
but "were actuated! by sympathy- alone..- -.. '■■
. .Finally. ..: Mr. ■pollard's, motion that ..the
culprit be rc-primande-i and' reinstated.'
with the understanding tha t "another of
fence meant instant dismissal, was adopt
ed. .Messrs. ; Bottom. Hicks, and Burton
voting in "the negative. '
Then Mr. -.-Adam's." offered --his resolution
providing that, .hereafter any' employee
who reports , for"; duty in nn intoxicated
condition shall, upon -bring reported to
the city.engineer by the ssrgcm-.t-nt-arms.

ent Vat V : the :\' committee meeting yes

From the statement made by City Engi
neer Cutshaw. yesterday it seems that tie
and the , contractors • differ on several
points and are • unable % to " reconcile their
differences; ' hence 'the /hearing before the
obmmittee, ( the cchiractors having cpnie
here' "to present their.^side of the case."
Colonel" Cutshaw claims' that the com
pany"; is; r undef. contract"' to put in a bake
oven, and that /they 'are not putting ;in
adequate*, heating"- arrangements as called
for". by ;the,conti-act. He says,- the steam
pipes .are too small;' the contractors say
not." Colonel Cutshaw states further thai
the' company .has never submitted all the
specifications 'for his_ examination as re
qtiired.; -.The t company is. willing to p.ut
in : certain;apparaius as extras which the
representative of • the . city ' thinks arc de

■ In speaking of, :ihe: differences and ot
tho '. correspondence ,-v with the . Stewart
firm?. ' Colonel "Cutshaw - incidentally
referred to ;the' : •"statement., 'in"; one
letter^ ; that "" he; ;:';-h'ad-> ."•whims." That
however, he said. ; had .nothing to' do" with
the question at issue, .but-vras a'personal
matter, which could be settled in a.per
sonal way in' five 'minutes. He said it
like; he meant -what^he said to be con
strued as -any one -chose to construe it,
and; there" was ;'a smile on the facts of
several of the committeemen at. the ex
pression." 1 ,.- ' ::i: :i , *' ■ .... .' ;
; Mr. Woelfel.; representing the company,
appeetred-' before : the 'f committee, and de
manded"- a^ hearing: "He claimed that he
and his - associates ; were.heree '.here ;at great
expense 'on the assurance^ of the cbmmitr
tee that they could.' be heard yesterday.
He insisted that "they.;, could not afford
to await the .convenience* of the cbm
mittee. :In' 'fact.''" ths superintendent was
rather emphatic and peremptory, in his
