FRIDAY, APRIL 7, 1911. FRIERSON SHOOTING. The shooting of Marshall Frierson Sunday by Deputy Sheriff Austin is an other evidence of the unfitness of the men who are armed with deadly weap ons and sent out to arrest people for petty offenses. Such men as Austin are not competent to serve as depu ty sheivffs and there aught to be a law miking the sheriff of the county responsible for the acts of men he appoints. Marshall Frierson and several oth ers, it is claimed, were engaged in, a game of craps, on the Sabbath day. A gang of week day crap shooters and saloon piinps got permission from tthe county sheriff maybe, and may i ibe not, for be it remembered that any while man turns deputy sheriff tne minute he shoots a Negro, but however a squad of our modern depu ty sheriffs, who will not shoot craps on Sunday, went out looking for Ne groes who do not have time nor the money with which to shoot save on Sunday, for they work during the week, most of them all the day and part of the night, and these deputies know that to be a fact. While the Negroes are toiling and singing the lazy white men, who are too trifling to live, are congregated in the saloons of the city making out their program for Saturday night and Sunday. As soon as the wheels of the factory stop these parasites get busy, and from that time until Monday morning they are going, and too often they have rounded up enough iNegroes to enable them to pay up their whiskey bills and establish loafing quarters for an other week. It is a case of the crimi nal chastising the innocent A de plorable condition indeed. Crap shooting is an evil that it seems impossible to break up. It is not a Negro game only, hut there is a bambling element of all races that have a hankering for the dotted square bones. The poor, thoughtless, hard-working Negro is the prey of the poor and designing whrke men. It is a bad practice; it is demoraliz ing. Thousands of homes are ren dered unhappy because of this game, but of the two evils, crap shooting and deputy sheriff murdering, we are strongly of the opinion that this lat ter is by far the worst. When a man is caught shooting craps he is put in and fined, first the $4 due the deputy sheriff who makes the arrest, and then to the county whatever else can be gotten together. The county is lenient but Mr. Deputy must have his $4. And the Negro who attempts to run away with the $4 will oe shot down like a dog. Every Negro that goes out to shoot craps ought to settle this one point, "Am I going to submit to an arrest and pay the poor white man his $4?" It he decides that he is not willing to do that then he ought to prepare to defend himself against the onslaught of the $4 hunters. The crap shooter has as much right to kill the deputy sheriff as the deputy sheriff has to kill the crap shooter. As a ru?e the man the sheriff goes to arrest Is of mo;e service to the community than the so-called guardian of the law, for the Negro works six days In the week p.yainst one day by the deputy, sheriff. They all need to be put in a reform school and taught, the one 10 work and the other to not shoot craps. Frierson is dead, and if Austin had justice meted out to him he would be hung by the neck until he is dead. But instead he is a free man, stalk ing around planning to get another $4. Frierson's wife and motner are poor. They do not believe the-' courts would punish the slayer of their r3 lative should they have him indicted. Here i3 a chance for the Negroes of Nashville to do a great service to humanity. The same deputy sheriff who shot Frierson, and men of his ilk, would treat the most respectabl Negro the same way. They nave no sente of reason, and no ' regard for human life. . CANADIAN ATTITUDE. The Negroes who are leaving Okla homa to settle in Canada are learn ing that wherever a black man goes he will fnd a white man, ana wher evn- there is a white man there is rate piejudice.- There is no -North no touti, no West, no East: the white man has seen to it that the American people te stirred and inter mingled as mixed seeJ, and you wil find the sentiment of one section in tve:y other section. This could not great: country a .t is if the coun ditions were different. We have got ten on such intimate terms wrtn the Canadian government the Bull and me nasie are becoming toon com panions; so the Negro who thinks he can go from one section of the land to another and get out of the pale of race opposition will soon find that he has made a mistake, We had just as well accept the ad vice of Booker T. Washington and ' -et uown .our "buckets" i tie. The white man in the South is mean, but he is honest. We know what he is going to do before he thinks about doing it, and he seems to have the same foreknowledge about us as race. They are our best friends be cause they do have sympathy for us. When we go into a strange section of our country, or when we attempt to emigrate to some other country, we find ourselves among strangers, ana they are as void cf sympathy as a hen is of teeth. They look upon the Ne gro emigrant the same as they do any others, and why should they not? The unjust laws of Oklahoma are detestable, but Canada is not proving to be a very good panacea. JOHN 8. TROWER. In the death of Mr. John S. Trower, of Philadelphia, Penn., the race loses one of its foremost business men. Mr. Trower started at the bottom and worked up to a high station of promi nence. He was a Christian business man who decided from the beginning that he would give one day of each week to worship. He Kept that pledge until the end. His was a life young men would do well to emulate The Hermitage Democrat showed a weak spot right from the Jump. The cartoon of the Negro signing the petition against the Nashville Char ter Bill was unwarranted and unjust. A very small per cent of the Negroes of this city had anything whatever to do with the petition. Watch out for the excursion man. The ground hog weather is about over, and the invitations to go frolic- ng will soon be out. You will neeu coal next winter. The article in the current issue oi the New York Independent by Dr. Booker T. Washington gives Durham, N. C, a great boost. Booker T. knows tiow. Public officials are the servants of the people, and are liable to be jacked up at any time. Negroes must learn that, and soon too. ;OCOOOOOOOOCX)OOOCXXOOCXXX3C l .'communication I OOOGOOGCOGGOOOOOOCGGOCOGw PKOrT.SSOR 1SITSOORNOT.

Now for its moral value. Is it rood or bad? Sorre say it is goad, some -ay it h Vad, ot ers .'ay it i-: neither good nor bad. and still other" say, "I d n;)t know." Now, th's is bosh: there are cnly two sides to a piece of goods, light side and wrong side. Only two sides to Chrht, inside and out?ide. When we are insinu we, are with Christ, when we are outside we are with Satan. There are two ruling rowers on earth, to whi h does this B?ack Art belong? To judgs of the notoriety of Hyp notism or Magnetism, one has only to red the daily newspapers, popular magazines,, vitit the theater, court rooms, schools, parlor entertainments and (hurt ties to .ee it practiced. Black Ait is practiced in almo.t etery walk of life, believe in or pay the money-making prople in every walk of life, who believe in or pay dearly for the use of this art, simply take your stand one hundred feet from the house of any one who professes to he a medium, clairvoyant, foitune-tel-Ie , faith doctor, voodoo, -hoodoo, mag netic healer, pscyhic reader .of palm ist and you will see all classes and rates of people weeding their way to the abode of this wonderful, powerful and wise (?) person, from the wee Sii a hours to black midnight entering through front, back and side entrance. Just try this experiment once. There aie text books printed on the sibjett, schools maintained and well tatronized. Before many years this Black Art will be well known all over the globe. I tis now used extensively in the Oriental countries, and h fast growing into u-e all over the United States. Now the two great questions before the public are first, I3 there such an art or science. Secondly, If so, is it sinful or holy to p actice this ai t? Tl -sev questions can be easily answered, by a fourth grade pupil. Nothing ever originated from man; there exist two. powerful beings, God aud Satan. Every thought originated from one or the other. The wife of a well-known minister remarks to an other hypnotist, "Hypnotism is a fine science if the people only understood it." In answer to the first question ask no learned scholar, but casually ask a ten-year-old child to look In his vest pocket dictionary and define hyp notism, magnetism, sorceiy, magic, charm, witchcraft, enchantment, clair voyant, bewitch, magnetician, fasci nate, captivate, conjure. For further information consult Webster's un abridged. Find the answer to the sec ond question by reading Gen. 3:13; Ex. 7:11-22; Ex. 8:7, 18, 19; Ex. 22: 18; Lev. 20:27; Lev. 19:26-31; Deut. 18:10, 11, 14; .1 Sam. 28; Num. 24:16; Psalms 58:5; Mark 7:21, 22, 26, 29, 30; Mark 8:33-35, 30, 37; Luke 4:2-13; Acts 1,9:12:20; Acts 8:1-24; Acts 13: 6-13; Acts 26:18; Rom. 1:16-32: .

(Contlimued from Page 1.) I suppose that was done for manners. He will please excuse me for accept- ng the Invitation, and I promise him that I will not put him to the trouble again. It is the first time I have vis ited the institution since the death of President Cravath, and I do not know when I will do so again. I went to Walden and every teach er there was kind, polite and courte ous and made me feel at home, and ike they did not measure manhood by the color of skin. You see, if that had been a colored president of Fisk and a white man had called, I am sure he would have addressed him ust a little more courteously. As the two schools are in Nashville, I shall not at this writing talk about the treatment. Now here comes the thing. I hare been to LeMoyne Institute, Mem phis, Tenn.; Tilllston College, Aus tin, Tex.; Emerson Institute, Mobile, Ala.; Talladega College, Talladega, Ala.; Straight University, New Or leans, La.; all of the American Mis sionary Association, but when I i;.

GOraraEraORATE IT NY Congregation can have its wants .riLsupplied by securing one cf our Quar- druple-PIated Table Silverware Com munion Sets at moderate prices 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 mended. FOR. FURTHIR INf.KM. HON NATIONAL BAPTIST CHURCH SUPPLY Co., R. H.

He said that it had been presidents and I feel to go to them j told him by a member of my race, again. I have said enough this time. . 1 am in Nashville, as you see. The poeple here- are just talking about the recent banquet which was given to Hon. J. C. Napier, who is now holding down the position that Dr. W. T. Vernon held down for some time, and he made' a good official, but then in politics you are up to day and down yesterday, or you may change it around if you so desire be cause changing goes on, and there is ; no getting around this. Those who had it in charge were up and they had many nice things to say about the affair. I wish you could have seen those fine things they got out. I think you call them menu cards. They were just fine and I shall never forget them. I am glad indeed that I had the pleasure of see ing them. Dr. Hart deserves cred it, and I want to congratulate him right here and now; I care not what others may have to say about him, he knows his business. I had the pleasure of stopping at the home of Bishop Evans Tyree, and he was glad to have me there and made me feel right at home. He toted me downtown two days in his horse and buggy, and" then he car ried me around a little more. Rev. Henry Allen Boyd, who is the owner of a fine horse and buggy, one of the latest Patterson buggies, told me that I could have the use of his team to go around the town, and I accept ed it with pleasure and rode out to Roger Williams University, where was cordially received by the presi dent himself. Professor Johnson, who is president of the school, knows how to treat all men regardless of their position, color or financial standing, and that is the way it should be; but then I could say something to him but not to the other man. President Gates could have done the same thing. I went into the chapel and heard President Gates make his address and he made an address, and I am here to tell you, that I attentively listened to, and I got something out of it. He said that when he came to the work one member of my race told him that he did not know the Negro, and that they worked to keep V. SC.

J and I will not dispute it, but I will say this, that the Negro will not stand for any monkey business on the part of those who attempt to teack Mm and he will find this to be true.. The Negro will resent an insult. All will do this but me, and I am not here for long and I need not pay attention to this kind of business. I want to thank Brother Henry Al len Boyd for the use of that fine horse and buggy, and for the kindness ' shown me during my stav in Nash- j ville, and then turn my attention to the other things. He was as busy as could be eettine readv for the con- vention, to be known as the Sunday- School Congress, and It will be a. fine one. He"is going to make it a success. I had the pleasure of meeting the people of Walden, and delivered a talk in the auditorium of Meharry. The people turned out to hear "me like I was some big man, and this kind of thing will Boon cause me to have a big head and it may send me to my grave. I met Dr. C. V. Roman, who was as busy as could be." I am informeU that many of the people in all parts of the country are getting ready to ask the church to elect Dr. Roman editor of the A. M. E. Church Review and he will make a good one. I would like to see him filling that big posi sion. Send all mail to me at 150 North Wood street, Chicago, 111. I am not going to say any more this week, but you may expect to hear from me again soon. J. O. MIDNIGHT. GREAT REVIVAL AT ST. JOHN A. M. E. CHURCH. There is in progress at St. John A. M. E. Church the greatest revival , that has been witnessed there in many years. On last Sunday sixty two persons were converted and Dy the middle of the week nearly one hundred had been converted. On next Sunday the pastor has asked the members and those interested in the salvation of the souls of the people to come and begin in the revival in the Sunday-school. He said on Thurs day night, he was hopeful of one hun dred converts Sunday.
