Washington, D. C, June 20. To President Taft belongs the credit of having given an Afro American the highest Federal ap pointment ever hestowed upon on'e of the race. The nomination of Wm. II. Lewis, of Boston, to be Assistant At torney General of the United States was sent to tV Senate in April, but Southern Democratic Senators em ployed all sorts of tactics to prevent confirmation and were able to hold it up until the Massachusetts Senators and other friends of Mr. Lewis got busy, secured tho eecesary votes and forced the matter to an issue. Mr. Lewi3 is not the only A IVo-American who has run up against the color line when nominate! for Federal office. There was a bitter fight made against Frederick Douglass when he was nominated for Marshal of the Dis trict for the District of Columbia. C. H. J. Taylor, James M. Trotter and James C. Matthews, nominated for Recorder , of Deeds, in different years, encountered the color line in the Senate, ,and in each case the nomina tion was held up for several weeks. William H. Lewis, the new Assist ant Attorney General, was born dn Berkeley, Va., November 28, 18G8. He attended the Portsmouth, Va., pub lic schools and the Petersburg, Va., high school. He is a graduate of both Amherst and Harvard colleges. At .Amherst he was captain of the foot ball team and at Harvard he was the most noted center rush that institu tion ever knew. Mr. Lewis was as sistant district attorney at Boston for eight years, and has an admirable record as a legal representative of the government. When given the recess appointment by President Taft in April, Mjr. Lewis was assigned to Indian Depredations Claims and he Is now engaged in that work. NATIONAL NEGRO BUSINESS LEAGUE.

All that is needed is for some one to take the initiative. The fol lowing suggestions are offered for the consideration of memfoers of State and Local Negro Business Leagues and others interested: 1. Carefully canvass the matter in your own city or state. Formulate your plan of action, then select ac tive workers in each important cen ter to carry out the plan. In all cases make the special Pullman or Tou-ist Car party a personally con ducted affair. 2. Select the most attractive route for the going trip to Little Rock to arous'e interest among the delegates. Start early enough to permit stop overs at points of interest en route. The one in charge of the party should make a careful study of points of interest, etc., that he 'may in his cor respondence, advertising and on the trip speak with authority. 3. Get the active co-operation of all the railroads and especially of the initial line in your state. When you have decided upon the route you favor, write (or better see personal ly) the General Passenger Agent of that particular railway. Tell him you will "undertake the work of se curing a special car party to the Lit tle Rock meeting, if you have positive assurance of his active co-operation on the following lines: (a) The railroad to furnish full information to "all prospective mem bers of the parties, giving data cov ering itinerary and points of Interest en Route to little Rock. (b) .The railroad to circulate this information and itinerary with your co-operation among the members of your Local or State League. (c) The railroad to advertise the special Pullman or Tourfst Car party in all the Negro newspapers of the state. (d) The railroad to send instruc tions to its agents throughout your state to carry out the active canvass for members for the party, with your co-operation. 4. Secure headquarters for your party in Little R,ock, through W. M. Alexander, Chairman Committee on Homes, 504 1-2 W. Ninth street, Lit tle Rock, Ark. Persons intending to organize such Tourist Car parties are urged to keep the Corresponding Secretary, Emmett J. Scott, Tuskegee, Ala., in close touch with their plans, so that h'e may being parties in the same terri tory together. Attention to this re quest will be - cordially appreciated. It will facilitate the whole move ment. Yours very truly, BOOKER T. WASHINGTON, President. Tuskegee Institute, Ala., June 17, '11. - TENIMEESEE SUNDAY-SCHOOL WORKERS COMING WED NESDAY.
