Negro History.1 The Nashville Glebe will undertake to give to the world a history of the Negroes j of Tennessee. We do not make this; statement "because we be lieve we! know more about the Negroes of Ijhls itate than others, but becautfa wre j feel I that such 'a history should be given- to the woild, and at a time while there are men and women llf lng who can aid In such' ; a work. We'wlllj state our plans more, fully In subsequent issues., Cheaper Meat. By despatches from ; the packing house centers It is gleaned that the price of meats will be some less for a few days at . least. This informa tion will, be good news to the Ameri can 1 people. Several reason have been advanced as the cause of the slump, but the most absurd is that it is due to the democratic victory at the polls on the eighth. Prices of meat have been too high! for several months, and the inability j of the people to pay these fancy prices compelled tho packing houses to reduce the cost. State Normal. The State Board of Education has again deferred action on the Normal School location. It is indeed unfor tunate that the matter was deferred. There were only two counties In the rare, Hamilton and Davidson, and while a central location is the most desirable,' if we are to have, but one school, on the other hand the counties all over the state were invited in the contest. Hamilton County has won, and we do not see how the loard can Justly give the vchool to another county. ' The people are more Interested in the establishment ot the school than thoy are in its location. They want to know that the carpenters and the masons, and the plumber, and the painter are at work on the building. Wherever it is located the Negroes of Tennessee will srnd their childron to it. The present administration would please the Negroes of Tennes see if they would settle this school matter now. The opportunities to do business are numerous to the young Negro men of Nashville if they could see them. A business league cou'd do a great good In this respect. 1 Senator Taylor did cot win tho gor- ernorship, but lv? achieved a greater victory in that he, to a large degree, harmonhej. the democratic party. . WORLD-WIDE TRADE IN DOLLS. There is no business firm in Nash ville, unless it is possibly the two big denominational publishing houses, that is at this season of the year receiving a more varied lot of orders coming from every pan of the known world than the National Negro Doll Compa ny. It was stated by the manager that his orders showed by the various states, cities and even foreign coun tries, from which they came, that the Negro .had practically decided the problem of selecting toys ror his chil dren. Jfe said that last year he had orders from Central America, South America, Canada, and even from Afri ca; while in the United States there was not a state In the union that was not represented on his order - book. The demand this year, said the mana ger, is far in excess of what it has ever been. He has just sent out sam ples to many newspapers in various parts of the country that had written asking for descriptions of the dolls. One of these samples was secured by a Globe reporter. It is a very unique specimen which, all in all, makes the nearest approach to a high-class toy to be used for the children. Not only during1! the holiday season, but throjghout the year the demand for these dolls is enormous. The Doll Company is making constant sales. ST. PAUL REVIVAL. ' Mrs. Elizabeth L. Howard, 'of Des Moines,1 Iowa, who is conducting a great revival at St. Paul, is drawing hundreds of people from all parts of the city. 1 She has held meetings in all of the large cities and has won thousands of souls to Christ.

We are trying to raise the standard to wheire it has never been before. Sunday was our preaching day. The pastor, Rev. J. W. Butler was with us and preached a 'soul-stirring ser mon. His text was "My Grace is stiflicient for Thee," II Cor. 12:9. All who were prcKent received the "show ers of blessings" that fell from his lips. We all tH'lieve him to be a worthy and Cod-sent man. A very liberal collection was raised, after which we were dismissed. P. -v.

D., , Superintendent. ; CHEAPER MEAT. f (Continue from Page 1) i WILPOX TAI.CS. : t i t ' Secretary Wilson said to-day that the announced reduction in prices was abnormal. He said that it was due to the fact that the, drought In the cattla-raising country had increased the cost of hay. The farmer with cat tle on his hands must pay $35 a ton for his hay, and rather than do this he was sending his cattle and shep to market. This accounted for the sud den tumlble in prices, he said. "This tumble is not all normal and will not all be permament," declared Secretary WTilson, "but a plentifu. corn crop and a plenty of grain will enable the farmer to feed freely and we should get a lower level of prices. Lower pricea are certain to come, pro vided that, somewhere between the farmer and the consumer there Is no combination or agreement to keep prices up." TIMS THE REASON. Chicago, November 16. Govern ment prosecutors moved to-day to pre vent indicted Chicago packers getting I heir cases out of the hands of Judge Kenesaw M. Lahdi3. when they filed an answer to the packers' charges that Judge Landis had actea as a special United States attorney-general against the packers in 1893. Louis F. Swift. Edward Swift, ChaP H. Swift, Francis A. Fowler, Edward Tildeh, J. Ogden Armour, Arthur Meaker, Thomas J. Connors, Edward Morris and 1mi' Herman, all of whom were Indicted for consp'racy to violate the Sherman anti-trust law, are named in the answer. The answer today admits that Judge Landis was appointed special assis tant to the attorney-general of the United States to investigate an alleged beef combination in Chicago, but de n'es that he was directed in any way to investigate the so-called trust with reference to the particular defendants in this case. The investigation at that time, ac cording to the answer, was for the purpose of obtaining information con cerning the acceptance of rebates fiom interstate carrier by the packing firm-' here and that Judge Landis' com pensation was raid out or a special fund controlled by the interstate com merce commission. Arguments will be heard by Judge Landis to-morrow morning. II - - I CITY ITEMS Miss 'Delia Sanford,' of New York, Is visiting her , mother, at 502 Sixth avenue, South.

I The Negroes of Nashville can well be classed among the most progres sive along athletic lines. There are irnen and women In this city who are i constantly putting in' operation en terprises that are conducted for the convenience and comfort of the peo ple. An institution that takes its place in the front ranks of the places for pasttime and amusement is the Excelsior Athletic Club. This club was incorpoiated under the laws of the state of Tennessee July 14th, 1909. The incorporators state that the object is to furnish a retreat for those who desire a place to spend their liesure hours, and also where the members can entertain their friends when they visit the city, and espec ally when the stay is of short duration. The club is located in the Boyd Building on Cedar street. A few nights ago a Globe representative was shown through the place, and it was with much surprise that the eyes be held the beautiful furnishings of the reception parlor. A large crowd was present, but everything was being conducted in the most orderly manner. The furniture of the Excelsior Club is of the finest hardwood, highly pol ished and decorated, and was install ed at a cost of several hundred dol lais. Every meinbei must have an admission card, which Is presented at the door on all occasions and the rules of the club state that if any per son not a memiber obtains admission with a card not belonging to them they will, upon detection, be ordered out, and If necessary arrested for trespass ing. Mr. Hugh Box Is president and manager and Mr. Chris Erw n Is assistant manager. Mr. Albert Wat kins Is the principal owner.
