FRIDAY, DECEMBER 23, 1910. They Did Not. The Charleston W. V", Advocate says: Nashville Negroes are said to have fcuorted, re wed on their hiiid' legs and pawed the air at the suggestion that they pay live uoi'ars tne piate lor a banquet to Napier. If the prices for edibles wuch. obtain hereabouts pre vail aown there, they must tnink a Dutch lunch sufficient lo start a mau upon tne duties of Register oi the Treasury. The tiihtrence witu. the Negroes of the capitol of Tennessee and the , Ne groes of the capitol of West Virginia is we have something to make a fuss over and they have nut, though strenuous effort has oeen put forth to land a man in this very job. DuBois in New York. Living in New York City, N. Y., is quite different from living in Atlanta, G&. Prof. W. E. B. DuBois very likely understands this very well since he sent out that appeal to Europe in which he challenged the statements of Dr. Booker T. Washington. We do not agree with the New York Age, however, in the assertion that so brilliant a scholar is of no use to his race, but are rather inclined to look at the matter as being unfortunate. There is a great work for Mr. Du Bois to do, the same as there is for Mr. Washington. We believe the les son taught the able editor of the Cri sis by the press of the country will enable him to see his error, and when ho realizes that there is work enough in the country for two great men he will stop fighting Mr. Washington and will about face and set about to do the service for his people for which he has so thoroughly prepared h: i The Negro race neefls a DuBois and a Washington, that they may have a Fisk University and a Tuske- gee. It is the duty of the Negro race to put forth every effort to induce these two great educators to both stay out of politics and devote their ener gies to educating the young minds to think and act wisely. Old Santa Claus. The time for old Santa Claus to make his annual visit ha arrived, and there are thousands of little ones in this city and all over this country expecting him to come to see them. We have read with keen interest the many letters he has received through the Globe and we hope every little boy and girl will 'be remem bered by our good friend. Santi Claus. We want to make one request of all. When you get your pretty things Christmas morning stop and think for a moment and see if you cannot remember some little boy or girl whom you fed sure has not been blessed as you have, and. tkeu remem ber that the Bible says it is more blessed to give than to receive. If you follow thft advice given here you will as soon a.s you open your stock ing go and carry some of your good ies to that little boy or 'girl who did not get any. Jack Johnson looms up now as an inventor, but that project he is ad vertising from all accounts is very similar to that invented by a man in Oklahoma. Two great minds run ning in the same channel.

C, and Christ's six months later; but if we take the October service then John's birth was near the mid dle and Christ's the end of the year. This latter conjecture would corres spond with the traditional date in December. The result, however, can not bear investigation, .for if another year is chosen we would arrive at different conclusions. ;3ut at the time of the birth, shep herds were tending their , sheep in the field. Could that have fteen In the summer time or winter? Trav elers as well as dwellers in Palestine are agreed th.it it is quite possible, especially near a town as Bethlehem, that shepherds should be ia the fielJ in the month of December. From these opinions, then, it may not' be inconsistent with tho earliest tradit ion of the date of the birth Decem ber 25. In conclusion, we may also remark that the Eastern Church early re garded January G as Christmas Day. They first celebrated it as E.piphanm. It was not commemorative of the date of the birth, but. of the first manifestation of Ifis Divinity. Thev fixed tho day in accordance with the in ir3 creation of the 'first Adam,' which was on the sixth day or Use work or the creation. They, however, grad ually adopted the natalis of the Western Church December 25. A sermon from Chrysostom in 38(5 was very influential in bringing about the final change. There were va rious other dates for Christmas Day January 10th and also April 5th were among them; but the tradition al date of the Western Church De cember 25th is now generally ob served. But there is no certainty as to 'its being the day of Christ's birth. To us it makes no diflerenc whether the year, month or date or month, is certainly known, one thing ;we are assured He has ' come and we are living monuments, of the benefits his advent has brought to a -fallen world, Union-Review. BAPTIST MINISTERS ELECT FICERS. OF- Monday was annual election day of officers at the Baptist City Min isters' Conference. Those present represented the majority of the churches who have pastors "among the Baptists in the city. The regular 1 ' UUUIW "' was taicen up. ' Anions the thing?, discussed, by , " 11 11 e Japusw went on record, was the opposition or solid nrotest to be offered from their pulpits against Negroe.-? loitering around soft drink stands. It is said that lIltT WJ11 lu:iKe an appeal to tne city ' nrul rounty authorities to have re- l"'uvt" ' ueeis rne loiterers, ! v no congregate around those places ! obstructing the passage and becoming a veritable nuisance in many nlaces. It is also said that they will urge the authorities to especially keep the women of the race out of such places. The -following' officers were elected for the ensuing year: chairman. Rev. C. II. Clark, D. D.; nastor of Mt. Tlive Baptist Church; Rev. Wm illaynes, Vice President; Rev. J. C Fields, pastor of Pleasant Green Bap tist Church, Secretary, and Rev. G. B. Taylor, pastor Second Baptist Church, treasurer. Before adjournment the conference took steps toward the im provement of their Sunday-school and church work for 1911. ' TRUE REFORMER. (Continued from Page 1.) the bank, hence tho Grand United Or der of True Reformers and the Bank of True Reformers were one and the same. Since the order was the order of the two. instead of the failure be ing attributed to the bank, it is sim ply a. depleting of the treasury of the order, and that, only temporarily, as it is plainly shown that the hank was simply an agent of the order and that the order with its 000,000 members must assume the responsibility of all losses." Ho shows thata mere taxa tion or assessment of $1 oa the mem bers of True Reformers for 1911 would reimburse every dejositor, pav back the capital stock, and possibly meet, every obligation of the suspend ed bank. Mr. Boyd states that it is believed by financiers and the fading men of Richmond that the True Reformers will redeem itself and soon reopen fer business hy putting tha bank un der ,-t different board of directors, making it a commercial and financial insl itiilirn, spa-ate from the secret order, or Grand Fountain, as It 1. ca'.ed. ,.-d 'that its eiork In future instead of reverting back to the han't at . the death of a member will be made tut -gfercble and marketable j :ft as (he stock of other capitalized md ehaitcrcl banks of this country
