ORD. As the closing days of the Meharry
Medical College draw nigh, and as the
senior classes begin to make prepara
tions to bid adieu to old friends and
familiar sicenes, one begins to look
around to see the personalities of the
class. Many familiar faces are seen
therein. Some of the young men have
spent seven and eight years attending
school In Nashville, but as a rule they
come from distant cities. It Is often
the case that the home boys go else
where to finish because of the old
maxim "A Prophet is not without
honor save- in his own country." This
however, has not been the case with
Richard Cheatham Hunter, the eldest
son of Mr. and Mrs. James L. Hunter
of 1309 'Hynes street, who finishes
with the class of 1907, Meharry.
Young Mr. Hunter has spent all of
his life in this city, having been born
corner Fifth avenue and Braadv.-ay

Nashville, Tcim,
just twenty-five years ago. He fin
ished his grammar school education
in the city schools cf Nashville, then
entered Fisk and finished the college
department with the class of ' 1903.
While looking around to see what pro
fession he would like to take, he was
absent from Nashville only about two
years, then returned and decided to
take a medical course. He entered
Meharry and from the beginning has
thown remarkable ability as a pupil.
He has studied hard in order to get
all there was to be had out of his
studies. He has been recently of
fered a position as one of the in
terns at Freedman's Hospital, Wash
ington, D. C, and will possibly leave
this week to accept. This will give
him a wonderful opportunity to furth
er fit himself for the profession. But
in accepting the intern, he must reject
the recent honor thrust upon him by
his class in making him their saluta
t.oiian. But in the face of the advan
tages to be derived from the stay in
the hospital at Washington, and be
cause he must go at once, if he ex
pects to accept the offer, the class de
cided that they could allow him to go
with their best wishes. Hence they
unanimously agreed. Just who will
be elected to succeed Mr. Hunter as
the salutatorian has not been learned.
All of Nashville will no doubt feel
proud to send forth Into the medical
profession such a promising young
man, who was so singularly honored
by such a large class. He stands well
not only In his class and at school, but
with the people of the city, many of
whom have known him since boyhood.
Just where he will locate after leaving
the Freedman Hospital Is not known.

Mr. Brady Is the only agent we have

else coming to you as representative
of the Globe Is an impostor.
One of the beautiful characteristics of

The Wind is Blowing Impressions
Cleaned From the Court Martial
of Major Penrose of the 25th
Special to the Globe.
San Antonio, Tex., Feb. 21. 1907
The Penrose court martial, which
is in session daily at Fort Sam Hous.
ton. iS Still milfh fjlllroH nf nrA nc.
pecially is the testimony that is be-
mg Drougnt out daily becoming more
interesting. The sentiment of the peo-
pio nas oeen changed almost to the
reverse, mere was a time when some
really did think that members of the
j wenty-mtn infantry stationed at
Brownsville, Texas (Ft. Brown), had
something to do with the recent dis-
lurbances at that post. But since the
Penrose court martial has been in ses-
sion here and since the senate investl-
gating committee . opened its Inquiry
n wasnington, it is easily seen that
the testimony brought out and the
many startling facts disclosed has
changed the verdict. There are hard
ly five persons to be found in this
great historic city, which bears a repu
tation as Texas' "Cradle of Liberty,"
;nd is better known as the "Alamo
City," who believe the members of the
Twenty-fifth Infantry had anything to
do with the "shooting-up." Govern
ment soldiers have, been stationed
here since the Texas-Mexican War, in
fact, since the occupation of Texas by
the United States. Old citizens here
are familiar with the records and the
treatment of all soldiers. Each of
the four Negro regiments (the ninth
and tenth calvaries, the twenty-fourth
and twenty-fifth infantries) has been
stationed at this point. Every one
of the four regiments made deep im
pressions upon the people while they
were occupying these posts by the
gentlemanly way in which they de
ported themselves. Truly they are all
soldiers and have been accustomed to
being under fire. They could not have
occupied these WTestern posts along
the Texas border and maintain such
pence as they did between outlaws and
the state had they been other than
soldiers. That region of country

south of San Antonio to the Rio
Grande and west of San Antonio as
far as El Paso, which includes Ft.
Bliss, Ft. Stockton, Ft. Ringgold, FL
Brown, measured from Ft Sam Hous
ton, contains some of the places in
which these regiments have made
good the oft repeated assertion that
"They are soldiei-3." When it is re
membered that such men as Allee,
the famous outlaw and his type, held
the boards in West Texas for years,
it can easily be seen how the city of
Brownsville could have been shot up
by men who would possibly do it just
for the sport that there was in it.
Allee himself, who seemed to have
taught the people on the border how
to create a row, has ridden into Lara-
do and other Texas border towns on
many an evening and closed up the
town, riding out of it without being
molested. Then, too, one might take
a live-dollar bill and hire as many
Mexicans as there are half dollars in
a five dollar bill and they would do the
work for you. None would ever be
the wiser. It will be remembered in
this city that the late and beloved
policeman Harris was deliberately
murdered by a Mexican, who testified
that he got for his work the paltry
sum of $1.00. It would seem that all
evidence now being Drougnt out in
the Penrose court martial will con
vlnce the public, and it Is hoped the
chief executive of this "Land of the
free and home of the brave," that the
Brownsville affair was a deep laid
conspiracy to wreck the post at Ft
Brown, because Negro soldiers had
been sent there to replace white ones
who were sent elsewhere. After the
mischief was done and was reported
as a soldier's disturbance the matter
was allowed to go that way, and is
now referred to as "Negro Soldiers
shooting up the town." The surprise
created In this city after reading the
despatch from Washington, where the
soldier testified that he had been In
structed by Major Penrose to take the
two la-dies (his wife and another lady)
to places of safety during the night
notwithstanding the rumored assault
on the white woman the day before
by soldiers, had a telling effect and
ran up the stock of Negro manhood
in the army, as did the confession of
the hotel clerk who said that he only
heard voices in the rear of the hote
and judging by their voices they were
members of the twenty-fifth infantry
it showed a weakening on the part o
the citizens of Brownsville.
The testimony given by Dr. C. i;
Thome, a prominent dentist from
Brownsville on Tuesday, was possibly
the weakest and most discredited
testimony during the proceedings o
the court martial, except that of the
hotel woman herself. The doctor was
considerably confused when the so
dierly Col. Glenn began his cross-ex
amination. Indeed it looked at one
time as though he would contradic
every bit of his testimony. He con
fesses that he did not see the men nor
does he know whether they were
Mexicans, whites or Negroes. He only
heard men talking. His testimony
stating that the shots came from the
direction of the post, bears out the
testimony of others who state that the
shot was in the rear of the post on the
outside. The balance of the time o
the court martial will be consumed in
reviewing the testimony. It is hard
ly expected that Major Penrose wi
be convicted. Evidence is not stron
enouch against him to sustain the
charee of "Neglect of duty." That
every soldier was accounted for
roll call, that his order had been is
sued and obeyed, which was that no
soldier leave the post that night
seems evident.
At tho tiPt. rpmilnr Bnnrd meetina
0f the National Baptist Publishing
Board, which is to be held on the sec
0nd Tuesday in March, it is learned
that Rev. J. P. Robinson, D. D., of Lit
tip nnrt- Ark., will be in attendance
He is a member of this board as well
Mlnirmnn nf the Home Mission
nnnivi nf tho Nntinnnl Bantist Conven
tion with headquarters at Little Rock,
ah.- Dp nnbinson is sunnosed to
niCct both the Publishing Board and
the Home Mission Board, but. owing
to the distance and extreme pressure
of business, ho is not always present.
He has not been to Nashville since
just prior to the meeting of the Na
tional Convention, but is always rep
resented by proxy. Dr. Robinson is
one of the leading ministers in the
Baptist denomination; he is pastor of
the First Baptist Church, Little Rock.
Ark., which has a membership of 1.200.
He is also Vice President of the Capi
tal City Savings Bank and the author
of several books. His last "Sermons
and Sermonettes," is now about on its
third edition. As a minister, he is
one of the logical few of the old which
God left in the South.
A revival meeting is now progress
ing at the old Mother Church on
Spruce street. One particular charac
ter about this revival is that it was
begun on Washington's birthday,
which keeps up the wish of the late
Father Merry; it was always his cus
tom to begin his revivals on the 22d
of February, and thus celebrate the
anniversary of the "Father of the
Country" and at the same time bc-
in an active work for the savins of
souls. This year Rev. T. J. Town-
send, of Brownsville, Tennessee, who
was recently called to the pastorate
t bpruce btreet Church, is conduci
ng the revival. Already tremendous
uccess has been met with. Ud to
Wednesday, 30 confessions had been
reported with many more seeking for
the faith. Rev. Townsend Dronoses to
make this the most vigorous religious
campaign ever held in Nashville.
Members and friends of the church,
rrespectlve of the denomination, are
showing their interest and svmnathv
n the movement by contributing their
presence. An appreciative audience
las been noticed during the first few
lays of the meeting. Rev. Townsend
'.eclares that he will not feel that he
ins been noticed during the first few
fcouls are added to the church and
many more converted. A new and ef
fective way of advertising this meet-
ng has been inaugurated, that, is,
badges are being placed on all who
will wear them, showing that the re
vival is in progress and that they are'
n sympathetic cooperation.

Through the efforts of Rev. R. C.
McLendon, a teacher of instrumental
music has been secured, and many of
the young people will join the class.
Miss Kittle Garrett is always prompt
in renewing her subscription. Mar
all follow her example.
