The Rev. Dr. Flagg, to say the least,
la rather careless in handling the
truth. In stating at a meeting in
Franklin last week that The Globe is
a Baptist paper, he gave utterance to
what is so far from the truth that we
are almost loath to believe that he, a
minister of the gospel, could willingly
be guilty of such an erroneous asser
tion. From the initial issue of The Globe
we have sought to impress upon all
the fact that The Globe is not a re
ligious paper, and most particularly
that it is not the organ or mouth-piece
of any denomination or organization.
This was our policy in our incipiency;
it is our policy now, and it will re
main our policy to the end of the
chapter, the reverend gentleman to
the contrary notwithstanding. Dr.
Flagg was talking through his hat. 1
Nashville is to have more than one
candidate for Mayor. J. J. Odil, a
democrat, announces that he will not
enter the primary of his party, but will
run for the office independent of the
action of any party or set of men,
thereby insuring that there will be at
least two candidates for Mayor.
It seems that Ross Ilandley's vic
tory over Iligginbotham and John's
victory over Cartwright have encour
aged independence among the candi
, dates. This is as it should be. There
is no need of a division along demo
cratic and republican lines, following
the national tenets of each party, in
these municipal or county elections.
Every man should vote for the per
son he thinks best fitted for office.
This opportunity has been denied us
heretofore, but the split in the ranks
of the unterrified is more and more
giving us the right to express our sen
timents. Though one may not agree with Mr.
Odil in all the policies which he has
announced for his platform, his ap
pearance as an independent candidate
is to be welcomed. It will at least
give every voter the opportunity to
vote for what he considers the best
candidate or, perhaps, the lesser of
two evils.
Nashville has a new daily paper,
and- if the note of conservatism upon
the race problem sounded in its first
deliverance upon the much mooted
question is to be taken as an indica
tion of its policy, it will fill a long felt
want in this city. Few papers in the
South have been so radical, so disgust
ingly radical without proper cause
when discussing the Negro Problem as
the sheet which before the advent of

ing field without opposition, and it is
a relief to think that at last we can
read a morning paper without seeing
our people referred to a3 "hound
dogs." If The Tennessean is not cur
rying favor while it is weak but really
believes in a "square deal," which is
all the Negro asks, we welcome its ap
pearance and wish it unlimited success.
Foraker is making it warm for
those Brownsville citizens who were
so positive a few weeks ago that the
Negro soldiers shot up the town. It
appears that many of the witnesses
who could understand English on
that night can speak and under
stand nothing but Spanish now.
According, to the Boston Guar
dian, Senator Foraker knows who in
stigated the shooting up of the town
and will prove it when the govern
ment is through introducing its wit
nesses and, too, that the colored sol
diers are entirely innocent.
The press dispatches state that a
mob in Georgia was fired into by a Ne
gro after he had given permission to
the men to search his house for a crim
inal. We don't doubt in the least that
the man fired into the mob, and any
man who will not protect his home
and family is not worth killing but
the mob's asking permission to search
the house sounds like a newspaper
canard. Some of these days one of
these lawless gangs will be glad to let
a Negro alone.
Nashville has a representative on
the trustee board of the $1,000,000
fund donated by Miss Anna T. Jeanes,
in the person of Mr. J. C. Napier,
Cashier of the One Cent Saving Bank.
We hope Mr. Napier will be able to
make Nashville the headquarters of
the board.
The Atlanta Independent takes an
amply deserved shot at the local Busi
ness League of Atlanta and points out
some of the defects in the national or
ganization. The Nashville league
seems to wake up about once a year.
We beg to acknowledge the receipt
of several invitations to the com-.
mencement exercises of various schools
attended by Nashvillians.
It seems that this cold weather, like
Tennyson's "Brook," goes on forever.
For some years Ebenezer Church.
Nashville, seemed to have gone to
sleep upon the one essential thig
the ingathering of souls, the unmis
takable sign or evidence of the real
growth of a Christian church. When
llev. Mr. Smith was aDUOinted to this
charge from the Tennessee Confer
ence, A. M. E. Church, by Bishop B.
V . Lee, A. M., D. D., last November, he
seemed not only to be able to take in
the situation, but to thoroughly under
stand it and to know the remedy.
Quietly and unassumingly he went
Hbout his work in an humble way
without "wisdom of words or man's
knowledge," as Paul would put it, but
in the demonstration and power of the
Spirit of God. Gently he moved alone
in his work among his people preach
ing the gospel in his simple and hurii
hle way, gathering up a loose thread
here and there, until he felt the tfme
was ripe for the work of God's spirit
in revival power.
Just a little while before Anril 8.
there came into his charge two mighty
men oi God who have proven to be
valiant in the Christian warfare
Bishop B. F. Lee, A. M., D. D., and
Rev. E. W. S. Hammond, D. D., Dean
of Theology at Walden University,
Nashville, Tenn. The powerful ser
mons of these two men stirred to the
depth the entire community of Eben
ezer and long will they be remem
bered. After the visit of these dis
tinguished nrelates the nast.or. seeinsr
it was time to strike, announced that
he would begin a series of gospel meet
ings and that Rev. Wm. Flagg. Jr.
pastor of Payne Chapel, East Nash
ville, would be associated with him.
On Monday night, April Sth, the pas
tor, Rev. Mr. Flagg, and the Sexton of
the church, Brother Stephen Evving,
were on hand promptly at 8 o'clock,
but on account of the inclement weath-
rr no congregation gathered. How
ever, the faithful pastor, not to be
outdone, said it was beast to have a
season of prayer before they left the
church; so Rev. Flagg read and com
mentcd on Mark 11:24, illustrating his
talk from his experience at Paris,
Clarksville and Nashville, Tenn.. es
pecially emphasizing the fact that all
true "revivals" are based upon "faith
in God,' and that all that was needful
was for the church to decide aa to the
number of converts it wanted.
After each had prayed; the faithful
pastor praying last, and, Oh, what a
pouring out of his heart's desire for
his people. That' meeting adjourned
until God would give better weather.
On the following Monday night,
April 13th, the church' came together
in prayer meeting, lead by Bro. Wm.
Hall, one of the stewards, assisted by
Bios. Stephen and Joseph Ewing.
On Tuesday night there were three
converts in the prayer meetine.
Un Wednesday night the uastor and
Rev. Mr. Flagg came out and took
Monday night, May 6, the series of
meetings at old Ebenezer came to an
end gloriously with the following re-
suits: conversions at the church, 44;
at the Tennessee Industrial School. 31.
giving a total of 75.
Dr. E. W. S. Hammond cava era-
ciously his help by his presence and
burning words of love in the work at
the school.
Rev. Mr. Smith says that too much
can not be said of Prof. Jno. B. Pey
ton, Superintendent of the Tennessee
Industrial School. The state certain
ly made no mistake in appointing Mr.
Rivington and he made none in se
lecting Prof. Peyton and his amiable
wne to tneir present positions at the
Brother Wm. Lusk, the local preach
er, has been indeed faithful at the
school and to him belongs much of the
credit of the very satisfying results.
mere are sixty -seven ready for ban-
tism and accession to the church.
The white friends showed an inter
est and assured the pastor of their
friendship and support for the future.
Kev. Mr. Smith has the haDDy facul
ty of getting a hold upon black and
white in every community in which he
labors. There is not another man like
him in the whole Tennessee Confer
ence. When he takes charge of a
work that means an unqualified suc
cess from the beginning.
It is simple justice to make mention
of the evangelical power of Rev. Wm.
Flagg, Jr., in revival work. He is
simply the leader in the Tennessee
Conference in this line of work with
Rev. S. L. Howard. He acts with the
pastor and leaves him. deeper in the
h gai ts of his people.
The following able divines were with
him from time to time during the
great meeting: Rev. Ellis, Allen,
Moore, Father Yancy, Wm. Lusk, J.
H. Upshaw, Leith, Presiding Elder G.
L. Jackson, South Nashville District,
and a white brother by the name of
The teachers of the Public School
at Lusk Town showed marked inter
est in the meeting and the pastor was
highly pleased with them.
So in every way there has come new
life into old Ebenezer A. M. E.
Church at Nashville under Rev. N.
Last Sunday afternoon a Globe re
porter made a tour of inspection to
Olympic Park for the purpose of as
certaining the location, the improve
ments, sights and the general appear
ance. Upon reaching the park he
found that thousands of dollars' worth
of improvements were being made. A
beautiful administration building
stands on the side of the ground at
the spacious entrance. The main
thoroughfare leading into the park
has been so macadamized that it
offers an easy access to the grounds
for vehicles. There is a magnificent
gate with two large . pillars on each
side and a pretty arch overthe same
with the words "Olympic Park" let
tered over it. These tasteful decora
tions, with scores of incandescent
lights, make the scene all the more
imposing. The driveway from the
entrance circling the park, passing in
full view "of the river, as the park
proper is on an elevation almost
equal to that of Quebec, overlooking
the city of Nashville. The dam and
the lock of the river are conspicuous
from the drive. The roadway mean
ders past the midway, the ball park,
and up to the club house, which over
looks the ball ground. Although not
completed on last Sunday, the indica
tions pointed that everything would
be ready for the opening days. Hun
dreds of people were met on the road
coming from the park, where they
had been spending a part of Sunday.
The Globe man was met by two of the
managers and given a hearty wel
come, being assured that every pos
sible effort would be put forth to give
Nashville another high-class park.
Continued preparations are being
made for a magnificent display by the
Baptist Sunday schools in Nashville
for the coming annual Children's Day
that will be celebrated on June 9, at
beautiful Greenwood Park. It is
learned from Mr. Henry Allen Boyd,
assistant secretary of the National
Baptist Publishing Board, who has
charge of the celebration, that invi
tations have already been extended to
