It will be remembered that the arbiter and blackboard critic is to ckMe each discussion wth his Diacscoara exercises. . For farther information write, stands out in boldest relief to the American DeoDlo seems tn ho that it there wa8 a Negro with Capt Amund. 8en as there was with . LieuL Peary who made his dash to the North Pole he will have no further difficulty in establishing the fact that his discov ery was made. It is said that, the striking coincidence and the things that lead up to the belief that a Ne gro was with the South Pole discov erer is that one of his servants bears the name of Henson, and that this same1 name Hencon is traced to American lineage. Since the name Henson is usually ' found among the Afro-Americans' or ' Negroes, Dame Rumor is saying that the Negro, in spite of the hardships he must under go, ha'3 up to the present, turned up wherever the white' man has been found. In speaking of this rumor, a prominent gentleman of the city tiaid that the b'ack man had contributed to every page of history, ancient, med ieval and modern. He stated that the theologians no longer deny the fait that a Negro i-s - 'i 'v- Hire" w se men In the Rasf, who, L'.l by the star, beheld Christ In the man ger wrapped in swaddling clothes; that it was a Negro who brought proper method to David concerning the tidings of war and the death of his son Absalom; that a Negro had carried the Christian religion down into Africa centuries ago, before Egypt lost its glory; but that things that tre fresher in the minds of the people are that a Negro was the first to shed blood in the Revolutionary War for the Stars and Stripes, Crls pus Attucks by 'name, and that It was a Negro who was the companion and friend of Thomas Jefferson and il was this Negro who was rated as the first and greatest of America's mathematicians, his name was Ben- , jamin Banneker, and who gave to I America hor first Almanac; that a ' Negro invented the first steamboat i to plow the mighty deep; that it was , a Negro who thus far invented the only feasible cotton-picker; that it was the bravery of the Iegro soldiers I at Fort Wagoner and Fort Pillow that challenged the admiration of tho civ ilized world; that it was the fighting Negro regiment during the Spanish American War that added more g'ory to Old Glory In the-Antilles. It was ilenson, a Negro, who nailed the Stars and Stripes to the North apex of the world. So if the other Henson proves to be a black man, the Negro will claim a deal of the distinction in the discovery of the South Pole. If not, thru the North Po'c belongs by discovery to one race and the South' Tole by discovery tc? another. OR!
