Tennessee Baptists, which met in the

portance to the educational interests
of the Baptists were considered. Sev
eral new members were added to the

MASS MEETING CALLED.
A call for a mass meeting issued
this week is as follows:
It is generally admitted that the re
lations between the white and col
ored people of the South are not in
all respects what they should be,
and there are but few who will hon
estly claim that white and colored
people have equal treatment before
the law. There is a profound feeling
among the colored people' that some
thing should be done to inaugurate
an era of justice and fair play. Be
yond doubt many of the ills under
which the colored people suffer are
removable, and will disappear when
a more friendly - sentiment for all
worthy aspirations on the part of col
ored people has been developed
among their white neighbors.
With a view to setting In motion
forces that will . eradicate suspicion
and distrust between the-two raceu
and substitute " therefor mutual con
fidence and helpfulness upon a basis
of even-handed justice to all, it has
been deemed wise to issue this call
for "a public 'mass meeting' to 'assem
ble on Wednesday night, January' 20,
at 8 o'clock at the First Baptist
Church, Eighth avenue, North," Rev.
W. S. Ellington, D. D.; pastor.

object of this meeting as set forth
above are invited and urged to be

"COLORED DOLLS FOR COLORED
The subject of "Negro Dolls for
Negro Babies" is attracting consider
able attention among colored people
and is being discussed by some of the
most prominent colored men and
women in, the country. In a recent
Issue of the "Colored American Maga
zine" Counselor E. A. Johnson, of
New York, who was for many years
dean of the law department of Shaw
University, Raleigh, N. C, has a
unique article, in part as follows: '
"I am convinced that one of the
best ways to teach Negro children to
respect their own color would be to
see to it that the children be given
colored dolls to play with. The chil
dren do not know anything about
prejudice themselves, and in most
cases they prefer white dolls to color
ed ones, but this idea could be easily
removed from their young minds by
putting in their hands at the onset
good-looking colored dolls. To give
a negro child a white doll means to
create in it a prejudice against its
own color, which will cling to it
' I believe we should not rear our
children to hate the complexion that
God has given them, and thus sow the
seeds of discontent with themselves
that will cause them to feel inferior
all through life. A dark skin is as
good as any other, providing the per
son who wears it is deserving. There
Is nothing disgraceful In black or
brown. No person despises a black
horse or a black chicken. A black cat
Is sometimes looked upon with super
stition, but not prejudice. In some
countries the devil is painted as white
and the angels as black. It is more a
matter of education than anything
else that we have so much of it in
America, not only among the whites,
but among the colored people them
selves who have been taught from in
fancy to hate a black, face and prefer
a white one. In 1891 I wrote a his
tory of the colored children in which
I said as follows: 'A more modern
theory of color is that the color of the
skin is a shield against the penetrat
ing rays of the sun. Most of the birds
in tropical countries are colored,
while those of the Artie circle are
white. The white bear comes from
the Artie regions. The color theory
was also quite popular formerly as
an argument in support of the curse
of Noah.' We hold that the color of
the race is due to climatic influences,
and in support of this view we quote
In reference to Africa as follows:
'As we go westward we observe the
lieht color predominating over the
dark, and then again, when we come
within the influences of the damp sea
air, we find the shade deepened into
the general blackness of the coast
population. There are. five distinct
tyres of races. The Caucasian is
white; the Mongolian is yellow; the
Malay, brown; the American Indian,
rpd: and the Ethiopian, black. The
wisest of men have always been puz:
zled to account for these different

colors of the races of mankind, al
from the same common ancestry."
Let the black face hold itself up as
well as any other, not in a haughty
arrogant way, but in a manner that
will say to the world as did Solomon
of old, 'I am 'black but comely,' and
comely may herein refer to more than
simply good looks." From the Brook
One of the most notable social
events of the holiday season, was the
marriage of Miss Emma C. Adam;:
and Dr. Sylvester S. Banks which
was solemnized in the presence of a
host of friends Wednesday, Decern
ber 30th, at 4 p. m., Bishop Tyree of
ficiated. The bride was given in
marriage by her brother, Dr. Walter
Adams of Louisville, Ky., and wa
attired in a handsome gown of white
messaline satin made directoire. Her
tulle veil was 'caught with llllies of
the valley and she carried a boquet
of bride's roses and lilies. The wed
ding register was kept by Miss
Blanche Randalls. A number of
handsome presents, including silver,
cut glass, hand painted china and
linen were received. Her traveling
gown was of brown chiffon broad
cloth with hat and furs to match. A
sleeper was secured to St. Louis,
where a short stop was made before
reaching their home. A magnificent
reception awaited them.
The bride is the popular and charm
ing daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. H.
Adams, of this city. She has been
for some years an efficient member
of the corps of city teachers. The
groom is one of the most prominent
business men and a young physician
rapidly gaining fame and a lucrative
practice of Kansas City, Kan.
Mr. C. W. Brown was united in mar
riage to Miss Mattie Dryer, of Hot
Springs, Ark. The wedding was sol
emnized at the residence of Mr. T.
B. Brown, 305 Eleventh avenue.
North, at 2:30 p. m., after which they
left for Mobile and New Orleans to
spend their honeymoon. .
On last Saturday afternoon at Mr.
Gardner's, on Charlotte pike, Miss
Katie Wililams and IMr. -Andrew Bugg
were joined in holy wedlock by the
Rev. Mr. Carr Rolling. The groom
