been a great decrease of Globe sub
scribers. Does It mean that the peo

grown tired of supporting such a
worthy race enterprise?

MAN. Special to the Nashville Globe.
Chattanooga, Tenn.,. Feb. 12. The
effort to prevent the appearance of
The Clansman in this city last Wed
nesday resulted in a fiasco. The man
that is responsible for the failure of
the movement, It is alleged, is the
Rev. Joseph E. Smith, pastor of the
First Colored Congregational Church.
The reverend gentleman, in company
with the men whose names were
signed to the petition below, called on
Mayor W. L. Frierson and asked that
the play be prohibited from showing
in the city. The Mayor, being with
out authority to take the step, en
couraged the committee to present the
petition to the Council. Whereupon
the following was presented to Mr.
Griggsby, the colored member of the
city council:
"Chattanooga, Tenn., Feb. 4, 1907.
"To the Honorable Board of Mayor
and Aldermen, Chattanooga, Tenn.:
"Gentlemen: Representing the col
ored citizens of Chattanooga we come
demanding nothing. The best inter
ests of home and community brings
us before your body. The vicious ef
fects of the presentation of. 'The
Clansman' lends nothing to the uplift
ing of the individual nor to the com
munity at large. We note the evil
consequences that have followed in Its
wake wherever it has been presented.
It tends to prevent an amicable rela
tionship between the races.
"We therefore most respectfully pe
tition your honorable body to suppress
its presentation in our city.
The document was signed with the
following names, all colored profes
sional men: R. W. -Allen, W. A.
Thompson, J. A. Mason, E. C. Wick
liffe, J. W. Tate, J. P. Frierson, El W
Rogers, W. H. Stephens, C. West, L.
C. Gibbs, G. W. Ward, J. T. Walton,
W. M. Massey, J. E. Smith, William
Parks, J. B. Williams, D. E. Johnson,
G. H. Crider, C. A. Bell and J. H. Jack
son. Pastor Smith, declare several pro
fessional men, was one of the most
ardent supporters of the resolutions
asking that the play be suppressed.
At the last moment they claim he lost
his nerve and withdrew the document
from Councilman Griggsby, who was
to present it to the council. This, de
clare those concerned, Pastor Smith
had no authority to do, since the reso
lutions in question were signed by
twenty-two professional men, he being
among those signers. The following
gentle "rub" was adopted among those
who believe that but for Smith their
action might have received serious
consideration. ,
"It's All Your Fault, Brother SmithI
"Apropos to the preparing of a set
of inoffensive resolutions relating to
the suppression of 'The Clansman' in
this city and to the forceful presenta
tion of them to Mayor Frierson, Rev.
Joe Smith, pastor of the First Congre
gational church, and member of com
mittee on resolutions, as the shades of
night drew on, saw pandemonium
break loose, negroes defenselessly shot
down, the streets coated with human
gore. Weak-kneed and vascillatlngly
he sought the chambers of the city
council and pleaded for a return of
said resolution for fear that his name
would be published in connection with
it. Out of fear that hard feelings
would be engendered he failed In
maintaining the courage of his con
victions. "The sense of the signed citizens
was to offer the protest, feeling that
the good of the community of white
and black demanded it. But by a play
of diplomacy on the part of Brother
Joe the council assembled and ad
journed without the presentation of
these resolutions. We wish, therefore,
to have this article convey the sense
that there is nothing contained in the
withdrawal of above resolutions that
was a suggestion of a fear of engen
dering hard feelings. We therefore
adopt this method of announcing to
the general public that the sentiment
of the signers still maintains, Brother
Joe Smith to the contrary notwith
standing. "Further, we wish to express ear
nest appreciation of the manifested in
tent of the councilmen of registering
a vote against said presentation of
'The Clansman,' should the resolu
tions have been presented."
This communication to Rev. Smith
was in the nature of a round robin as
it was not signed by those signing the
resolution, though it is the consensus
of opinion that it expresses the sen
timents of a majority of them. In
the meanwhile, The Clansman ap
peared as per schedule and played be
fore crowded houses, having profited
by the free advertisement which had
been so kindly furnished it.
The entertainment at Fisk Univer
sity Friday night, Feb. 8, was a suc
cess in every way. Every teacher and
student of Fisk, and hundreds of our
best citizens, were present. The 800
people who were fortunate in squeez
ing into Livingstone Hall were more
than delighted, while the 200 or more
persons who turned away from the
door because there was no room in
side misled a real treat. These and
ell others will, however, have oppor
tunity to see Prince Herrman at his
very best in a bran new programme at
Meharry Auditorium the night of Fri
day, March 8th. This will eclipse all
ether programs, because the stage is
sufficiently large to admit of many
very special features.
Crowded houses have greeted
Prince Herrman and Duke Berryman
this week, 2 nights at Second Baptist
Church, 2 nights at Jackson Temple
and 1 night at Trinity C. M. E. Church.
Their engagements for next week are
as follows:
Payne Chapel A. M. E. Church, Mon
day night, Feb. 18th; Hubbard Chapel
M. E. Church, Tuesday night, Feb.
19th; Mt. Nebo Baptist Church, Wed
nesday night, Feb. 20; Third Avenue
Baptist Church, Thursday night, Feb.
21st; Seays Chapel M. E. Church, Fri
day night, Feb. 22nd.
Prince Herrman advises his many
friends to see The Merchant of Ven
ice at Fisk University Friday night,
Feb. 22nd.
We acknowledge receipt of a new
book of anthems, some of the most
beautiful sacred anthems seen in
Nashville. The book is published by
the National Baptist Publishing Board
being especially prepared for church
choirs and Young People's meetings.
The words and music of these an
thems is composed by two of the
noted-song writers in the person of
the late Prof. Wm. Rosborough, whose
two books, "Celestial Showers," make
his name immortal, and Prof. J. H.
Carter, of Harrisburg, Va., whose beau
tiful anthem, "Who is the King of
Glory?" has been so favorably com
mented upon by music critics. No an
them presented promises to give a
more general satisfaction than does
this book. The price is 25 cents per
copy, $2.50 per dozen, $20.00 per hun
dred. The fact that these anthems
were written by members of the race,
who were familiar with the conditions
existing, places a greater value on
every anthem. They are on sale at
the National Baptist Publishing Board,
523 Second avenue, North, Nashville,
