Clark and furnished an enjoy able diversion to a limited number of friends of the gracious hostesses. Many musicals selections were ren dered during the evening and at a late hour, the guests were ip.YUed in to the attractively decorated Jining room, where a two-course menu was served. The guest list included Mrs. Harland, Mrs. Leslie Stevens, of Pu laski, Mrs. C. H.

But the Negro press Is voicing its position on the matter nevertheless, and that Is as it ought to be. It is a well-known fact that Joseph B. Foraker. has all the mental and legal acumen to acquit himself creditably as a Justice of the Supreme Court of the country. Ten million of American citizens will ever honor the name of Foraker, and could they but influence the powers that be they would put above every other name In this country, to succeed that of that great jurist, John M. Harlan, that of the lover of justice, that splendid man and citizen Joseph B. Foraker. Na tional Baptist Union-Review. LET BOYS SELL NEWSPAPERS. It is a remarkable fact that most of the agents who handle The Age are adults, grown up people, men and women, not only in New York and in other large cities, but In the small er towns, near and remote; and this lias been the case for thirty years. It has been founds Impossible to get Negro newsboys, or boys after school hours, to handle The Age, as they handle the white newspapers of the same character, although the percent age of profit they make on sales of single copies of The Age is four times greater than that they make on sales of white newspapers. We have been given to understand in numerous instances that parents object to their boys handling Negro newspapers. That this disposition la well nigh general would seem to be confirmed by the indisposition ot youngsters to handling such papers. This is a remarkable condition which parents cannot afford to encour age or countenance. People who will not work for their own people, and who discourage their children from doing so, when they need work, stand in their own light ana mature a false pride that will destroy the roots of self-respect: SELLING SHORT WEIGHTS CHARGED BEFORE SQUIRE.

PORAKER WORTHY OF HARLAN'S MANTLE. We most earnestly second the sug gestion which has been made by sev eral of the leading papers of the Ne gro press, that the President of the United States would do the proper thing to submit the name of ex-Sena tor Joseph B. Foraker as a man fit to fill the vacancy on the United States Supreme Court bench made by the death of the late Justice John M. Harlan. It is, In our opinion, per fectly safe to say that there is not a man in all the length of breadth of the country more worthy to wear the mantle of Justice Harlan than ex Senator Foraker. He, like Harlan, Is a lover of Justice and fair play, and that fact has been notably and sur passingly demonstrated, not only here in this country, but to all the world. When Senator Foraker beat down to defeat the dogged persistence and determination of President Roosevelt to fasten the crime of others upon as truer defenders as the nation ever had, he did those men and the race to which they belonged as well as the entire people a service that can never be estimated. His love of justice rose above his political fortune, and he fol lowed out the dictates of his noble less men had a friend at court. And less men ha- a friend at court. And a friend indeed he was, whose mas terful legal mind triumphed glorious ly over all the adverse conditions that downright, pure and impudent preju dice had injected into the situation Because he did this, is that why he is thought to be fit for the Supreme Court of the nation? Yes, for that identical reason, and the further rea son that as a man he had so much to lose and such a combination to fight, the Roosevelt's entire regime, is full proof of the man's fitness for any po sition in any department of the na tion's government. We are aware of the fact of the impossibility of Senator Foraker re ceiving such a consideration at the hand of the present administration EveiLoy (DMmncrfhi and (DcomgiLoe gsittlcom.
