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.

CHRIST'S BIRTH.
(Confiiucd from
1.)
be near the beginning of 749
A. U.
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,

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.

treasurer. Before adjournment the
conference took steps toward the im

church work for 1911. '

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
