a I' CT71 THE RIGHT VESSELS USED TO GOiiiyEfflQRATE 8T A NY Congregation .supplied by securing one of our Quar- druple-Plated Table Silver ware Com munion Sets at a moderate price and on reasonable terms. A set consists of one flagon," two goblets and two bread plates. If the church wants .more goblets or plates, they can be furnished at an additional cost. The commemoration of the Lord's Supper is a very sacred ordinance. . The .custom for centuries has been to have special vessels for this occasion. Thus a communion set becomes an important part of this service. Many churches have used the old style com munion set while others use an individual set. Both are appropriate and well-recommended. One is no reflection upon the other. FOR. FURTHER. INFORMATION CONCERNING PRICED AM 1 E F MS, JV RI T E TO THE NATIONAL BAPTIST CHURCH SUPPLY Co , R. H. feOYD, Secretary, 523 Second Avenue, North, .

At last the consummation devoutly wished and in sooth the materializa tion of our long-cherished hopes and aspirations was a gladsome and Incom parably joyous one. The calm and even tenor of Moharry College life was most pleasurably ruffled and Nashville's "beau monde" most agree ably surprised by the inauguration of the Initial ball of that elite clement of Meharry Medical College known under the caption "Sigma Mu" at the Odd Fellow's Hall January 3, 1911. And the assumption may be ventured that never before was such a furore created, such an event that so stirred the social impulses of the Athens of the South. Unparalelled wag the sight which greeted our vision a sight that might have appeased the esthetic sense of a Michael Angelo or a Raphael. What a galaxy of veritable Apollos! What an unexcelled bevy of fair, damsels so transcendently radiant with the beauty of Venus, and plethoric with all lier various charms and graces. In realizing our anticipatory delights, one of the cardinal objects inculcated in the general aim of the fraternity bore fruit. Truly do we concur with Bulwer Lytton that we should enjoy while we may the pleasures of life, thus the organization was established four months ago for the promotion of social as well as literary and medi cal interests, moral uplift, and the foster'ng of a spirit of altruism, and withal a spirit of frank camaraderie. The magnificent assemblage was viewed to best advantage in the grand march in. honor of his excellency, our president. All of the ladies were at tired In evening gowns of the most elaborately wonderful and peculiar ly astounding French creations, consisting of mescaline silks, brocaded velvets, black spangled nets, cloth of gold, embroidered muslins, rhanchilly laces, chiffon-over-sllk coif figures arranged with Oriental bands, pearl tabashons and Jewel-laden Ti aras. Hon. and Mrs. A. N. Johnson kindly graced us with their presence. Mrs. Johnson in black evening gown literally blazing with diamonds and Mr. Johnson In black conventional suit Mrs. M. D. Child's, of Birming ham, Ala., in black satin gown with ecrue trimmings and pearls, acted In connection with Mrs. A. N. Johnson as our two chaperones. Full-dresses beyond par bespoke the sartorial equipment o? the male sex. Continuously did we worship at the shrine of Terpsichore to the strains of delicious?v soothing music furnished by Prof D. Liner's orches tra, Nashville's leading colored danc ing master. During the interim Dame Fortune smiled upon us gastronomi cally and a banquet was served which might have satlfied the most fastid ious appetites of the gods, and which might have made those gathered around that ambrosial board on high Olympus turn green with jealousy and envy. The artistic skill of the committee was responsible for the dance hall presenting so gorgeous a spectacle. Pennants galore from all the leading colored' and eastern colleges, frat in signia et ecetera were in evidence. A superabundance of autos, taxicabs, carriages provided conveyance for the jolly crowd to and from the hall. We regret unfortunately, not being able to state the name of each person that attended, but it suffices to say that the cream of Nashville's society was there. The members of the "Sigma Mu" are J. 1 Phillips, President; E. C. Nelson, Vice-President; Wm. P. Saun ders, Secretary; F. D. Bradford, Treas urer; R. Lloyd S'm'th, M. A. Booth, C. A. Hancock, R. W.

HARDY, Reporter. - POLITICAL RIGHTS ARE NOT THE ONLY RIGHTS WORTH FIGHTING FOR. For an Ignorant and poverty-stricken race of people, whom freedom sud denly falls upon without effort upon their part, to begin a campaign for the supremacy of political rights with an intelligent and wealthy people is as foolish as a general who would undertake to capture the capital of a belligerent nation before he con quered the forces between his army and the city besieged. There are other rights worth fighting for, and many of these rights must necessarily be captured and exercised before we pitch the battle in earnest for the full enjoyment of our political rights. Among these rights might be men tioned the right to possess and enjoy a good and helpful character; the right .to enjoy the respect and con fidence of your neighbors; the right to own property and possess your part of the world's wealth; and the right to be industrious, thrifty and law-abiding. These characteristics must bo developed and well establish ed before we can secure any perman ency in the political equation of the community where we live. Charac ter, wealth and intelligence is the j bedrock upon which you must rest your fight for your manhoood right3, in spite of your conventions, resolu tions and the falacies of fool Negro leaders. We have no desire to be understood as advising and abandon ment of any right, political or other wise, either expressed or implied in the law, but we do wish to be under stood as advising that the race cease to subordinate every other right for politics and the superficial, until we develope some capacity for self government and make some visible progress along material and tangi-, ble lines. We believe the Negro ousht i to vote, but we do not believe that any Negro or white man should vote who is not intelligent or honest enough to use his vote for the highest good. The right to have a good char acter, become industrious and make an honest dollar far outranks the naked right to march to the polls and put in a vote. You may hold conven tions, resolute and paw, but until charity begins at home, and you get character, money and brains, you win always be without your political rights. . Political rights is the sequence that logically follows the obtainance and maintenance of these rights and equipment. Atlanta Independent BRIERSVILLE NOTES.

Uphold ing the constitution and laws there under as a safeguad to the freedom of labor, the supreme court of the United States, through Justice Hughes, declares unconstitutional, the "contract labor law" of Alabama. The law provides that if a laborer with intent to defraud entered Into a contract to labor for another and quit before money advanced under the contract had ueen repaid, he should be guilty of a misdemeanor. The quitting was made by the law a prima facie presumption of intent to defraud. The supreme court to-day held that the law in operation furnished a con venient instrument for the coercion which the constitution ana an act of congress forbid; and that it was "an instrument of compulsion peculiarly effective as against the poor and Igno rant, its most likely victims." The provision of the constitution and laws designed to secure endur ing prosperity which depended upon freedom of contract, "would soon be come a barren form," said Justice Hughes, "if it were possible to estab lish a statuatory presumption of this sort and to hold over the heads of la borers the threat of punishment for crime, under the name of fraud, but merely upon evidence of failure to work out their debts.' The question of the constitutionali ty of the law was raided in the case of Alonzo Bailey, a Negro laborer for the Riverside company. The law made it a misdemeanor for any person to en ter into a contract to labor, receive advance pay and then fail to do the work without refunding ttie money ad vanced. The breach cf contract was made proof on the face of things of intent to defraud and under a rule of Alabama law the laborer was not per mitted to rebut his proof by testifying to his unexpressed intention at the time of making the contract. Bailey made a coirtwict to labor as a farm hand for one year, received $15 advanced pay, to he returned at the rate of $2.25 a month during his service, bat quit work after a month and a few days. He was arrested, convicted and assessed a fine of twice the amount of the advanced pay, one half of which was to go to his former employer and one-half -to the state. When this case came to the supreme court, the department of justice was allowed to participate in the argu ments "as a friend of the couit," claiming that the thirteenth amend ment to the constitution was violated by the law in question. The supreme court of Alabama had upheld the con stitutionality of the law. Justice Hughes, who announced the opinlor. of the court, said toe court at the outset dismissed the point that Bailey was a black man, because there was nothing in the statute that disclosed a discrimination agsinst Negroes. He said the care had been considered in the same light as if it had originat ed 'n New York cr Idaho. The court hold that so far as Bailey was concern jd, the low as it stand-), was the sani: a if it made breach if such, a conta.t a n'sdemeanor with out saying ytli-.ng about intent to r'efraud. - T arax otherwise, was was characterized by Justice Hughes as making a distinction where there was no difference.- Furthermore, it was held that a state could not reduce a person to involuntary servitude by the indirect, method of considering his failure to pay a debt a crime. The Tradesman Daily Bulletin. , DR. J. T. WILSON, OF MEHARRY, THE PRINCIPAL FIGURE AT OPENING OF INFIRMARY. During the past week Dr. J. T. Wil son enjoyed the distinguished honor of being invitcj to attend the open ing of the G. W. Atkins Infirmary, located at 1113 Kimbroug'a street, Memphis, Tenn. While the opening was not attended by the usual pomp and ceremony the occasion was mark ed by addresses and a series of opera tions performed by Dr. Wilson, our able surgeon. Among the Interest ing cases were the removal of a sec tion of the Inferior maxillary and an other for the removal of an osteosar coma, also of the jaw; these were said to be critical In every detail. Dr. Atkins is a member of the Me harry class of 1902 and a successful practitioner In the city of Memphis. At the close of the day's exercises a banquet was tendered the risking sur geon. Dr. Wilson speaks well of ths progress of the physicians of Mem phis. Dr. Carter, of Oklahoma, class 1905, returned to his home recently.
