Charleston Girl Wins Is awarded first honors in declam atory contest to determine wlio should ropresent school in eon test with Morgan College. Harper's Ferry, March 7. ? The last few days at Storer have been filled with things of vital interest to school people. Rev. Chas. ?. Mitchell, of Paw tucket, P. L., recently gave a thrill ing lecture on J<OB; OR THE ATOItbDS ASH HEAP. It was a masterful presentation of the worlds greatest drama. Rev. Mitchell and Pres. and Mrs. McDonald were in ?college together and his coming was the result of that friendship. The readings given by Miss Hen rietta Vinton Davis were greatly en joyed -by the college circle and townspeople who heard her in An thony Memorial Hall last week. The lecture course this year has "been unusually strong. The students have thoroughly enjoyed the ten lectures, recitals and concerts which have been given here this year. There are yet two and probably three more to be giyen. Storer en joys the unusual advantages in re spect to such matters, in as much as it is a junction point, on a great rail road system and is enabled to obtain choice talent easily. The carpentry classes have just completed an excellently made cab inet for the especial benefit of the classes in agriculture. In it* are ar ranged and classified all the bulle tir.es, charts and other printed mat ter to which references in those class es are frequently made. It is understood that Rev. T. B. Snow-den will not return to this charge next year. He is a man of deep -piety and rectitude of purpose and conduct. His gospel is one that is direct and uplifting. The Meth odist church wftich will secure his services will be very fortunate. The great mid winter event of the year ? the reception 'by the Young Men of Storer to the faculty, young ladies and friends ? was held on Fri day night. It was one of the most successful occasslons in the long years that such functions have been held here. The new iLncoln Hall lends Itself especially to such occassions. The guests were received in the general reception room and ushered to the gymnasium which on this oc cassion was formally christened There they found seats in a nook brilliantly lighted and because of the height 'of the ceilings ? 14ft. ? was spacious and airy in appearance. Here the literary .part of the pro gram was rendered. It consisted of an address of welcome by Clias. H. Palmer, '12, Seaford, Del; witty poem especially written for the oc casion by Charles Dean, '12, Water ford, Va.# and an eloquent (toast, to Washington 'by Henry van Deesten, *10, Parimaribo, Dutch Guiana. Mus ical numbers intervened which were received with deserved enthusiasm. Then the .company numbering about 225 were marshalled into the 1'idq new dining room of the hall and there a delicious four course colla tion was served ibv the young men who had prepared it themselves. | After this the company repaired again to the gymnasium where marching was greatly enjoyed. Quite a number of out of town guests were present. All voted it a j most enjoyable occassion and regret ted that such events come so seldom. A clock recently given to the new hall was presented to the Seniors by Mr. Winters, to be placed in the lower corridor. Sly suggestions as to the wisdom of marking minutes and being on Ume when . wanted characterized the speech of presen tation. Frank P. Whea?ton, '11, re sponded on behalf of the. class. ? ? Last week the college 'band under the leadership of Col. McKinney went to Brunswick, Md. to give a concert tor the benefit of a local church. Very complimentary re ports <rome as a result of their trip. They have several other engage ments to till this spring. On Wednesday evening occurred the Declamatory Contest of the Lin coln Debating Society, held to de termine who should represent that society in the coming contest with Morgan College. It was generally conceded that it was the best con test of the kind held at Storer. The program as rendered was as follows: Music ? Quintett. Aslee<p in the I>eep. Misses Campbell and Doug las. Messrs. Palrher, Wheaton, Thomas. Prayer: - Solo ? Down in the Depths of the Sea, James A. Thomas. Declamation ? America's Duty to Re sist, Charles S. Arter, Harper's Ferry, W. Va. Declamation ?

It was a very difficult thing for the judges to decide 'between the three mentioned. After nearly an hour of deliberation the award of Alternate was given to (Charles Summer Arter; Acad.

On Friday night t.he Womans .Lea gue held their contest to determine likewise who should be the young woman to uphold the honor of Stor er. The oldest members of the fac ulty say that never in the- history of j the school has there been held a (bet ter contest of women. 'Miiss Estelle M.

HA I *i\VA V - NOT MA HI ?V, Frankfort, Ky., March 7. ? A railroad company is not liable for damages in case a colored passenger is shot and killed in the colored compartment by a white man. unless it is shown that the conductor had been notified of the white man's presence in the compartment and had declined to put him out of the colored compartment. The Court of Appeals made this important rule to-day in reversing the $4,000 Judgment of the Hell Circuit Court in the (vase of the Louisville and Nashville Railroad against William Renfro's adminis trator. Evidence showed that Carlos Jones, white, had gone into the col ored compartment while the conduc tor was taking tickets and after passing him, and that the shooting occurred before the conductor had been apprised of the fact that Jones j had gone into the colored compart ment.

May Call a Strike QUEEN AND CRESCENT FIRE MEN RESENT SQUARE DEAL GIVEN NEGROES. Seniority Question Differently interpreted l?y railroad ollicials and coal sbovelei's, and every railroad in the Sontli liable to be involved. Cincinnati, O., Mar. 5. ? The color question so far as liremen on the Queen and Crescent Route are con cerned -is likely to create a strike that will involve all the railroads south of the Ohio River, east of the Mississippi River and West of the Potomac River before the question is settled. Strike ballots will be submitted to the firemen all over the Queen and Crescent system to morrow, from Cincinnati to Chatta nooga, Tenn., comprising the three divisions. Late Saturday a committee' con^ sisting of H. O. Teat, acting Vice President of the Brotherhood of Lo comotive Firemen and Engineers, of Peoria, 111.; J. L. Payne, General Chairmai), Chattanooga; J. L. Fet terman. Secretary and Treasurer, Danville, Ky. ; J. T. Lumpkin, Chat tanooga, and G. A. Odenwald, Lud low, had a conference with Vice President T. C. Powell, in the lat ter's office in the Ingalls Building, at which interpretation of Article 18 of the Firemen's schedule, signed July, 1910, was discussed. The committee and Mr. Powell had dif ferent views, and the men served notice upon Mr. Powell that they would take up the matter with Pres ident W. W. Finley, head ? of the Queen and Crescent and the South ern Railway, whidh may also be in volved in the strike, should it. be called following the strike vote tak en tomorrow. The Article Involved. Article 18 reads: "Firemen will have preference of work, runs or promotion according to age In service, experience, merit and ability being equal; firemen who have had three and one-half (3%) years in freight service will be con sidered eligible for promotion to en gineers where otherwise fitted for such service. It is the intention to provide engineers by (promotion from firemen to such positions so far as practicable. "When a temporary vacancy oc cars in passenger or preferred freight runs, it will be filled by the oldest available fireman in service. If the rugular fireman does not re turn in ten (10) days, the oldest fireman in line of promotion will ibe held for and placed on the run. "When a new run is created or a permanent vacancy occurs, it will be bulletined for ten (10) days. If the run Is refused by the oldest man en titled to It, he forfeits his right, thereto, retaining his right, -how ever, should another vacancy occur. If a fireman is sick or away from the district on which lie is employed, on leave of absence, he will have the right to make application for runs that were bulletined and as signed during his absence; provided he makes application for such runs within three (3) days after his re turn to work. "Firemen in yard service will hold age as between each other un til placed iii road service. " Negroes >\ot Advanced. The committee declared that this article, when properly interpreted, means that Negro firemen are not to be advanced above the position of fireman or to have the preferred runs in the passenger and freight service, while the company officials stated at the conference held in Washington, D. C., last Thursday, that they are. President Finley told the committee that the article could be interpreted two wave, and that, while he was in sympathy with the movement to give the white fire imen the best of it, he could not do otherwise than sustain the conten tions of Vice President Powell, a*> he would back up his subordinate officer. The men claim that a strict in terpretation Of the rule does not give the Negroes the right to any thing above the position of fireman. They point to the fact that the Ne groes are referred to only once in the wage schedule, one paragraph .stating that Negro firemen are to receive 5 per cent less wages than white firemen. The men also as sert that the only thing left to white men, should it be decided that Xegroos are to have seniority, would be "slop" freight runs. It is also alleged that white firemen cannot enter the Chattanooga yards, as the Negro firemen are given the pref erence, as white men who apply for positions, according to the men, are rejected in favor of Negroes. None on North KncJ. i No Negro firemen are employed oil the north end of Qween and Crescent Route, but it is the inten tion of the road, -.it is declared, to put them on the Cincinnati Division. Cincinnati wllL ,be the center of the controversy, and it is declared that, should tlio strike be declared by the uien, tihe entire- Queen and Crescent . system -Will be tied up .within* 48 hours Bhou.ld the strike bo called. It is declared that the recent strike of firemen on the Georgia Railroad will be a tame af fair compared with the threatened strike. The committee advisee the men as follows: "Nothing m?ore can be done; only the peaceablo withdrawal of your services from the company, and that with the hope that it will impress uponyouf company's offi cials the necessity of giving you your rights." Oiilcials of the road, it is asserted, have informed the men that they re serve the right to hire any class of labor they see fit. One official is re ported as saying that t"he road could not do without the services of Ne gro vfi?'emen, especially on the south end of the line, which was declared to be in the "black belt." Vice President T\ C. Powell, when seen last night, state*! that he had nothing to say about the threatened strike. "I do not know anything about it," Mr. Powell declared. "I do not cjare to discuss the matter." The men said last night on their arrival in Cincinnati: " Wie feel that these are white men's positions, as it is best for the traveling .ipublic that two competent white men are on the engines." Segregation Law Opposed by Priest THINKS TJHK FROPOSIOI) ORDI NANCE UNOHHISTIANliTKE AND PAYS TRIBUTE TO NEGRO IX AODRIaSSS. TO RICHMOND, VA? CITY COUNCIL. (Special to tlio Advocate. ) Richmond, Va., March 4. ? Be cause all of the desira'ble property in the Negro section of this city lias been taken and because the best ele ment. of the race coming to the city has to have respectable homes, are the causes - for sotq^f o? the - -colored^ people so environed ? seeking homes on Clay Street. Because editor John Mitchell and the stockholders of -his bank had erected a magniflcient bank valued at $100,000 on Clay street and the coming into this street of colored people who were not renters but purchasers, a terri ble howl on the part of the middle class of white people, especially re siding in this section of the city has been sent up, aud has crystalized into such a form that the rights of the Negro are again discountenan cod. The city fathers of Richmond are trying to become the cynosure of the eyes of the world like the Bal timore city law makers. I>ast Mon day night, the council committee on Ordinance, Charter and Reform of the city, held a meeting and by a unanimous vote recommended to the city council the Vonderlohr segre gation ordinance which restricts the ownership of the property 'to this extent: that, no white person shali reside in a block the majority of the residents of which are colored, and that no colored people shall live on a block where the white people are in majority. John Mitchell, led a delegation of the most representative citizens of the race who spoke, against the measure. Mr. Mitchell, mastered facts and said that there was no necessity for such a law as the races were well segregated, and that the Negro only wanted desirable pTOperty in localities that are con ducive to good health and the ideals of a desirable American citizen. He said that owing to the large increase of the Negro population the race in the city was compelled to enlarge its residential section. Rev. Father Hannigan, whose church Is doing good work for the uplift of the 'Negro In Richmond, spoke against the measures and ex hibited the Christian spirit of a true man. He spoke of trie un-Christian- I like attitude of the lav/ makers and said that the solvation of the black I man's soul according to the doctrines lof his church was as important as that of the white man's, and, for that reason he had devoted his life the last 2 0 years in Christian service among the Negroes and for whom he was not ashamed. He paid a tribute to the Negro and Impressed thc com lmittee with this fact that he was eminently fitted in giving his opinion as to the worth of the Negro in his development. He said that he spoke for the Catholic church and raised the question concerning the build ings now occupied 'by Christian or ganizations which would be affected by the discriminating law. His ut terances in the defense of the people for whom he was devoting his life were significant because ho was a white man speaking for the race. Napier's Send-Off . . . . ARRANGE!) FOR TO-NKiHT AND WILL TAKE FORM OF AN E LABORATK BANQUET. "Dicktics" Lose Out Manual's of uft'air |>lan to steer guest of honor clear of oft- re peated charges regiu'ding' his ex clnsiveness. (Special to The Advocate.) Nashville, Tenia., Mar. 7. ? The struggle between popular rule and "dickty" plans has ended in Nash ville, Tennessee. The new Register of the Treasury of the United States will be sent away from the - Capital City by the people instead of the self-appointed "few" who some time ago arrogated to themselves the right to tax Nashville colored citizens without giving them repre sentation. The plan seemed to have resulted in a "fall down." The "dicluy" ones adopted the course of the proverbial Jew anc' cut their price from $C>.00 to $2.00 per plate. Their adoption of a common sense plan was a li tie too late to secure the sympathy or support of the "pro gressives" in Nashville. The out look is that they will have to have a private affair of their own. The pink slip sent abroad by the ambitious but unreasonable young Allen Boyd seemed to- give Nash ville men enough of him and he has perhaips learned that the more thoughtful men of Nashville do not take him half as seriously as he seems to think they ought. The committee of fifty, appointed at the colored citizens' meeting re cently held at the Baptist Church, on Spruce Street, to tender a ban quet to Hon. and Mrs. .1. C. Napier upon their departure to Washington, met at A. N. Johnson's undertaking parlors Saturday night ajid arranged for the banquet to take pl^ce Thurs day night, the 9th inst.* at Mieharry auditorium. The Walden orchestra has been engaged .to furnish music. , Dr. Booker Washington and other noted colored persons have 'been in vited. Dr. Washington wired Dr. R. F. Boyd, the General Chairman, yesterday, expressing regret at his inability to be present on account of engagements made a year ago mak- 1 ing it imperative that he be in Iowal at that time. The banquet is to be a popular af- 1 fair at one dollar per 'plate, in which the colored citizens at large are1 in vited to participate in showing hon or to one of the race who has ibeen so signally honored by the Presi dent. Dr. R. P. Boyd is Chariman, and among the names of the com mittee will be found many of the I best konwn colored citizens of Nash ville ? Dr. P. G. Smith,, J. H. Hale, J. P. Crawford, A. M. Townsend, J.j A. Lester, F. A. Stewart, Ira T. Bryant, W. W. Williams, \John Cun-L ningham, P. P. Hill, T. G. Ewing, W. D. Hawkins, T. Clay Moore, W. H. Hodgkins, J. J. Lay, II. S. Mor ton, R. L. Mayfield, ,T. Thomas Tur- 1 ner, W. W. Banks, J. B. Singleton) I H. 1^ Keith, Revs. W. A. Lewis, J. C. Caldwell, S. L. Howard,' W. S. I Ellington, T. J. Moppin, A. N. John- 1 son and others. The moving spirits say that it shall be an affair in which all col ored citizens will participate with- 1 out any plans not open, free and democratic. - The banquet for Mr. Napier as planned by the General Committee of Citizens is a more creditable and representative affair in a public way than the one that caused the differ- 1 ence of opinion. It ought to be so. The men behind it represent 'morel largely the entire body of citizens. I This is a democratic age and they have had the foresight to plan the I banquet in a way to steer Mr. Na- J pier clear of the oft-repeated charge regarding his exclusi veness. They! have not tried to make it a "society" affair in the small sense of the word. They are in the main the I leading representatives in jUhe re- 1 llgious, educational. professional, J business and industrial life of the! Tennessee capital. 1 There in a growing spirit of ob jection to tlie "Baptist Publishing I House crowd" in Nashville. There I has been an apparent disposition on J the part, of some of the leading spir-| its to try to make their will and plans, the plans of the Nashville oit-l izens ? to set themselves up, as it were, as "the one best bet" In the community. The Nashville Globe is published at the Publishing House! of the Baptists and is owned by H. I A. Boyd, it very largely represents the will and opinion of the Baptist Publishing House people ? not the Nashville citizens. Some newspapers have made the mistake of referring to young Hen ry Allen Boyd as "Doctor" Boyd. Nashville jM:ople think "D. 1>." is easily found or he has a scholastic [record unknown to them. It makes some young fellows foolish to over rate them. They get to over-rating themselves and are soon led to be lieve that it is their Inherent right in spite of meager training, to under rate men of maturer judgment and superior training. Too much "B*'* tist Publishing House Spirit" ca ? near spoiling the Napier banquet K Nashville citii&ons seem now to h# "the pig by the ear." They evideii; ly do not intend for Boyd and li iv pu'blihing house "octopus" to swal low Nashville as it has the Nation-1 al Baiptist Convention. . 4 . Fixing Their Plans For Coming Campaign o INDEPENDENT COLORED KB PUBLICANS IN TENNESSEE ARE BEGINNING TO GET BUSY FOR HOTTEST CONTEST IN HISTORY OF VOLUNTEER STATE. (Special to The Advocate.) Chattanooga, Tenn., Mar. G. ? The State Central Committed of the In dependent Colored Republicans of the State will meet in Nashville, April 20. The call has already been issued to the members. The com mittee is made up of leading Ne groes from eacli Congressional Dis trict and, whatever may be said to the contrary notwithstanding, they have P. F. Hill as Chairman and ? leader. They have faith in his pol itics and will very likely "turn some tricks" in 1912 with this same P. F. Hill as their guide. P. F. Hill is the head of the Uni ted Brothers of Friendship and Sin ters of the Mysterious Ten and Edi tor of the Royal Banner. He sup- ' ported the Patterson and "Bob" Taylor forces in the last campaign. He is a l*ard worker in politics and lias the gift of a good organizer. In times past, lid' has ibeen of assistance to J. C. Napier'teut lately he has not been so much-iJin political * harmony with the new Register offfttie U. S. Treasury. The Independent Colored Repub- i lican Party has a bright chance of doing things now. Since the white 1 Republicans put Napier off the State Executive Committee, . the in dependent- colored JrWtpuhllcana are the only Negro politicians in the State who have the semfblance of a State-wide organization. 1 J. C. Napier has a club of his own. It is called the Central Republican Club and is centered in Nashville. 1 The members of this Cly^/ wiould have to go in under P. F./Hill if 1 they joined the Independent Col ored Republican organization. They would hardly do this. Napier likes t to be the head and shoulders of a Negro political organization that he is identified with. It woud perhaps go against his grain to be a subject of P. F. Hill. Ben Carr may or may not come out of private life and enter politics again. He fought, hard for the Dem ocrats in the last election. He was rewarded by being made Director of Agriculture in the new Tennessee State Normal School to *be located - at Nashville. That means he must i keep blissfuly out of politics. Then it may.beNthat ho will confine his po- ; litical activity to worrying the pres ident and other members of the fac ulty of the new school. Ben thinks "a hea]>" of himself $nd has big no tions whether others see him in the same light or not. Napier will be satisfied now for the next four years after which age will be telling on him very severely and he will not be half as vigorous and ambitious as he has been in the past. With Napier out of Tonnes see politics, there may be a chance for the race to "get together" on im portant occasions. Among all his many good qualities, one looks in vain for that of a "peace-maker" when examining the political record of Napier. There seemed to be no , peace unless he was satisfied.
