Nation's Capitol
(Ooutinu^d ^ from Page Five)
lecture was replete with eloquent
flights, homely philosophy, bright bits
of humor and a budget of side-split
ting stories, told In the characteristic
Davis style, aiul those who have heard
.the Richmond divine often, declare
they have never enjoyed any offering
more than they did on this occasion.
The speaker was felicitously intro
duced by Counsellor Thomas 1*. Jones,
of the district bar. Following the ex
ercises at the church, Dr. Davis, ac- ;
^ompaniert by Mr. F. D. Lee, was es
corted to the Mu-So-Lit Club by Sec
retary R. W. Thompson, where they
were handsomely entertained. Dr. ,
-Davis spoke cm "Influence," and point
ed out the weight that each of the
varied elements of the club pulled in
the scheme of things worth while. Mr, '
liee and Mr. Fred R. Moore, editor of ;
the New York Age, also talked inter
estingly. Fine ? musical selections'
were contributed by Prof. Harry A. 1
AVUlltams and Dr. C. Sumner Worm
ley Mr. Robert A. Pelham presided, i
Odd Fellows (ief ting Hearty For
The ?. M. C.
The thirty lodges of the Grand
United Order *of Odd Fellows of the'
District are engaged in electing their'
delegates to the l.r>th session of the
B. M. C., which meets in September
at Atlanta. The delegates are <not in
structed for any particular candidates,
but after the list is completed, they
will get together from time to time
and agree upon a policy that will net
the District th^ best results,* both as'
to offices and legislation desired. It is
understood that the local delegation
will be a unit for Benjamin J. Davis,
of Atlanta, for Grand Master, and for
William L. Houston, of this city, for
Grand Secretary. II. P. Slaughter,
who has made a fine record, will be
retained as editor of the Odd Fellows'
Journal. It is predicted that the head
quarters of the Order will be* moved
from Philadelphia to Washington,
which is nearer and more accessible
to the main body of the Odd Fel
lows of the country. A new office
biiilding will probably be erected, to
accommodate the general officers, the
Journal's printing plant, and for out
siders, as a revenue producer. A
? wild-cat" rumor comes this, way that
Rev.-E. P. Jones' hat is in the ring
for another "try" for the Grand Mas
tership, and that he will go to Atlan
ta with the solid Mississippi dele
gation behind him, together with all
others who do not care to follow the
Administration program. It is said
that the Jones slate will carry- J. C.
Needham, the present incumbent., for
Grand Secretary to offset the candi
dacy of Mr. Houston, who is presumed
to be the favorite son of the Davis
combine. There will be a pretty fight
at Atlanta, if the Davisites and the
\
Jonesites lock hoins >in dead earnest.
A big crowd will-be' there.
Freedmen's Hospital Nurses Grrnl
ate. -
One of the most important adjuncts,
to the $750,000 Freedmen's Hospital is
the Training School for Nurses, where
?expert instruction is given year after
year in the art of caring for the sick
and looking after the sanitation of
homes and institutions of various
types. Last Friday evening the grad
uates of the Class of '12 received their
diplomas in Andrew Rankin Memorial
Chapel of Howard University, in the
presence of a large audience. Dr. W.
P. Thirkield, president of the Univer
sity, delivered a sympathetic address,
and Dr. VV. A. Warfield, surgeon-in
chief of Freedmen's Hospital, present
ed the diplomas. I,)r. Warfield has
? been at the head of this magnificent
institution since 1902, and is regarded
as one of the very best- business ad
ministrators of hospitals in the coun
try, as well as one of its most su
perbly qualified physicians and sur
geomh ? He has performed -a. -number
of operations in major surgery that
have attracted ;Uie attention of tlie
medical fraternity everywhere.
No Candidate Kndorsed by Zion
Conference. j
According to a telegram sent by Rev.
S. Iv. Corrothers to W. Calvin Chase,
editor of the Washington Bee, no 'can
didate for the presidency was en
dorsed by the General Conference of
the A. M. E. Zion Church, now in
session at Charlotte, N. C. Dr. Cor
rothers states that both President Taft
and Former President Roosevelt have
??? ? r- ? ?
friends in the body anul each element
i may have signed a p^per expressive
of their preferences, but no formal ac
tion has been taken by the conference
as such, and he adds that any news
circulated to the contrary should be
contradicted. Dr. Corrothers is pastor
of tne Galbraith'A. i?l. E. Zion Church,
of this city, and recently celebrated
the tenth anniversary of his incum
bency.
.Tetftimoniiil In Honor of Capt. Oyster
The colored citizens are arranging
to givo a grand testimonial in honor
of Capt. James F. Oyster, president
of the Board of Education, as a mark
of their appreciation of the broad
gauged, generous' and just treatment
of the colored people in the adminis
tration of their schools. He has begn
thpir "friend at court," and this op
portunity is being grasped for the
purpose of having him know how
deeply grateful the race is for the
many acts of kindness he has perform
ed and for the material benefits he
has so constantly conferred. A pub
lic demonstration will be held at 19th
Street Baptist Church next Wednes
day evening. Hon. J. C. Napier, Reg-j
ister of the Treasury, will preside a?nd*
addresses will be made by two or
three citizens of national repute. Mr.)

Miss Charlotte M. Wallace will sing,
and Miss Mary Powell Burrill will
read a dramatic selection. The gen-'
eral committee is made up of about
one hundred of the substantial fac
tors in Washington's civic develop
ment, with Mr. N. C. Tyson as chair
man, and Dr. George W. Cabaiiiss as
secretary. Dr. Walter H. Brooks and
congregation have donated (he usje of
the church for this affair. It prom
ises to be one of the most notable ob-r
servances ever held in the district, as
everybody is eager to testify in some
manner to their heartfelt apprecia
tion of the great work Capt. Oyster
has done for the advancement of
Washington's 100,000 Negroes.
