A NEW FEATURE. It has been our intention from the beginning as publishers of the Globe to, from time to time, add new features to its news matter that will increase the desire of our present readers to continue as such, and which will also appeal to those who are not readers to subscribe and become readers. When the Globe made its advent the publishers realized that Nashville was a great undeveloped territory, and while the people are above the average in intelligence they had not been trained in newspaper ethics. There were many new features we desired to inaugurate in the outset, but we did not feel that it was op portune to do so, and as our patrons have become accustomed to expect and express a desire for new depart ures in our news matter we have en deavored to meet the demand. Our latest feature and one that we believe will be highly appreciated is a special club news department We have secured a competent editor for this department who will give per sonal attention to such matters. We take special pleasure in calling the at tention of our readers to this new feature, and hope it will meet their approval. VOTING A HIGH PRIVILEGE. In every state in our Union all men of voting age are guaranteed the right to exercise that privilege if they measure up to certain requirements. These requirements are regulated by the states, and while some states have made laws that can be construed in such a way as to practically de bar Negroes from voting, no state has succeeded yet in completely rob bing any class of its citizens of the franchise right. Voting is a high privilege. Inmost of the countries of the old world the exercise of this right Is not granted to the masses, as generally as it is to the American people. It is claimed by many eminent authorities that the method of granting to every man the right to vote, regardless of his social standing is an absurdity, but the faith of the citizens of this country is stronger to-day in our sys tem of voting tha nit has ever been. Tennessee's laws do not contain any of those drastic measures that tend to rob a certain class of citizens of the franchise. Every man twenty- one years of age who has average in telligence can vote in this state. "This is true now, and since it is every man ought to enjoy the liberty. The young Negro men of Tennessee are not as much concerned about this matter as they should be. They are in too large a degree abusing the privilege and tre men and women as well, who realize the mistake our young men are making should put forth every effort in their power to interest them in their own welfare. Otherwise, the day will come when the privilege they have and are not using will be taken from them and entrusted to the charge of others. COMMENCEMENT. Soon the' processional march will be heard in many chapels bidding a long farewell to those who have pre pared themselves to begin life's battle. Commencement is a happy day for those who stand on the rostrum and in a formal way relate stories of great things done and how greater things can be accomplished. It is also a time of rejoicing for those parents who have watched their children as they have pored over books night after night in order to prepare for the examinations that must be passed be fore the commencement day can come; and people generally are deep ly interested in school closing time. The several colleges and universi ties in this city have begun their commencement exercises, and in a few days, a large number of young peo ple will be sent out to labor for the uplift of humanity. We wish for them all a happy beginning. "We hope each young man and each young woman that goes out from these insti-1 , . ... . tutions of learning will go with zeal-' ous heart, burning witn trie desire to do something to make the world bet ter. The Cuban situation is becoming a live issue, if reports are true. The blacks are causing the whites a great deal of worry. We advise the Ne groes to sleep less and watch and act more. When the hot summer days roll around on what grounds will the Negro boys and girls play? If noth ing is asked for, one thinks nothing Is desired. 'dren start earlier for school. They The C. M. E.

You might think you have a good excuse for not getting an education but this will not lessen the penalty you will have to pay if you grow up ignorant. No excuse will remove the curse of ignorance. Ignorance carries with It the curse of poverty, humility and serfdom. Education offers position, wealth and opportunity. Wlhich will you choose? ilf you want a trade; if you want a normal or college course; if you want skill .combined with culture; if you want an education and can or cannot pay for It, write President Walter S Buchanan, Agricultural and Mechanl cal College, Normal, Ala. WM. S, GREEN DEAD. Mr. Wm. S. Green, of Chicago, 111., who lost his life Friday, March 25, in the great conflagration of the L. Fish Furniture Store, was formerly of Nashville. He was the only son of Rev. and Mrs. Bedford Greene, the former having died ten years ago. He received his education in the Nashville Public schools and at Wil berforce University, Xenia, O. After growing to manhood, he held several prominent positions; having been Shipping Clerk at the A. M. E, Publishing House when this establish ment was moved to Nashville. He remained in their employ for a great number of years, later becoming one of the employees of Taylor & Co undertaking establishment. During these years of service, he was re spected for his integrity, aptness and firmness of character, being general ly liked by all with whom he came in contact. Nearly eleven years ago he and family moved to Chicago and very soon afterwards he accepted a position as porter in the L. Fish Furniture Store. He did not hold this position long before he received a promotion. His employers soon discovered that he was a man of great business qualifications so they made him Stock and Bill Clerk, which position no other Negro had ever held in this store. Just a few months prior to this terrible disaster, in which he lost his life, he had re ceived another promotion; becoming in addition to his other duties, Man ager of the ill-fated sixth floor of this firm. He was much loved by the mem bers of the firm of whom he had won the confidence and respect. He was a faithful member of the Knights of Pythias, holding the office of Mas ttr cf Works of Hannibal Lodge, also Caril.'n of the Commandary. He and family were members of Bethe A. M. E.

His sou has taken its flight to the spirit land and oh, what a meeting there must have been with his sainted father and other relatives who already have crossed over and were waiting to welcome him home. m BISHOP GAINES WAS NOT AR RESTED.

Commenting upon the singing of the songs in our Folk Songs No. 1. by a male quartette DR. HENRY E. KREBBILL. "Dean of American Critics" says:- "A concert-goer mifrht live a lifetime and never hear such beautiful homogeneity of tone as that which tiiey produce, nor such euphony, perfection of unance and precision. Save for its vital human quality, which lifts it above all musical products, this harmony sounds like that of a we.l luned organ." This recognition puts our Folk Songs side by side with the wor.d's greatest musical achievements. This music is suitable for the parlor, the school, the church. SEND 23o. FOR SAMPLE COPY.

Instead of allowing the officer to go to conference, they got a carriage, carried Bishop Gaines before a Magis trate, made bond for his appearance in court, and the conference was opened in due form. Many rumors went out, but Bishop Gaines' friends kept an eye open. It was set for trial Saturday morning, but by some legal process it was postponed for a week, and then an effort was made to withdraw. The conference passed resolutions, declared that Bishop Gaines had not appropriated any of its funds to his own use, hence there was nothing left. Later, all the ac cusers of the Bishop were brought before the conference, confessed and were forgivene xcept Rev. J. N. Mor gan, who said that he was right and had no apology to make, hence was unanimously expelled from the confer ence. "I am now 70 years old," said the Bishop to a reporter, "and I have never been in court before in my life. I have always tried to do my duty and shall continue to do so. I know in this world the man who tries to do right will not get the support of all men, but I have the approval of heaven, and that's worth so much." Rev. Morgan said that he would make an effort to bring the case to the notice of the grand jury. FUNERAL OF MRS. LUCELLA THOMPSON.
