Look on the front page of your Chattanooga News of next Saturday for two pretty little black stars. If stars are there and you are a white man, throw the paper Into the gutter at once, for the. management of the paper does not want you to read U. Ji you aro a Negro and the stars are not there, hasten to return the paper to the carrier, for it is a white man's! paper and th News management in sists that Negroes must not read the papers printed exclusively for white people. It is a. system of newspaper publica tion that appeals to the well-posted newspaper man and reader as one of the funniest schemes ever evolved. The proposal of publishing a "Jim Crow" newspaper is something new undor the sun. There have been Jim Crow restaurants, Jim Crow postof flces, Jim Crow laws regulating the seating of the races in street cars. But who ever heard of a Jim Crow nowspaper, an edition that is forbid den to the whites, and another that Js under the ban so far as the Ne groes are concerned? , Those stars, which were seen in last Saturday's issues of the News, appear on the front pnge of the co pies printed for exclusive perusal by the Negroes. It had not been sup posed that the Negroes were intelli gent enough to guess the hidden mean ing of the little black characters, and it was not intended that the Negroes should secure possession of other edi tions of the paper so as to find that there was a discrimination in the matter of alleged news dished out for the consumption of different elements of local citicenship. But the publish ers of the paper made a bad guess. The black stars were the wrong color, The color press should have been brought' into play and the stars print er red or green or any other color excepting the significant black. The Negroes, who are, many of them, careful newspaper readers, have r.ot been fooled in the slightest. In fact, those who received last Saturday's The NASHVILLE " - w - m-m vnuuivu HIV -A. Ul r V M. 1. T Jilt lo he independent of all such humiliations, and Ghalianooga need not stand for such. Lcls talk it over. WILL FIGHT TO LAST DITCH. (Continued from Page 1.) fast to what we have. We have cap tured the Convention; do not surren der it." Pev. J. C. Fields, pastor of Pleasant Green Bapfst Church, a member of the faculty of Roger Williams' Uni versity, said, "Our churches, with their large memberships and with the co-operatiun of the citizens of Nash ville, will consider H a privilege and a pleasure to entertain the National Baptist Convention." Prof. F. G. Smith, principal of Pear High School, declares "No greater op portunity for Nashville to stamp it self indelibly upon the minds of the world as an educational center w'll be offered than to have the great Na tional Baptist Convention, with its brainy leaders and its large delega tion to come within the portals of the city to spend a week during the month of September. It would be a calamity to lose it." lion. J. C. Napier, register of the United States Treasury and cashier of the One-Cent Savinngs Bank of this city, says, 'Nashville wants every good movement that can be started APP A yiisrs upporoiMity, (From Chattanooga Times.) Jim Crow paper are up in arms. The same ones, when served with Mon day's publication, to a great extent, tore their papers into shreds without ever looking for the Jim Crow mark. In Churchville and in the Negro set tlements in the city the News is now a Jim Crow paper and it will take a, generation to get that idea out of their head. Page 20 of Saturday's issue of the News was the one where the exclu sion of news was made for the benefit of different elements of readers. The son was thrown to-' the laboring neo- hplc ofi'-'bfl' sldv a'nd to the" Negroes on tho other. Of course, the laboring people have made no complaint that they have been deprived of the cream of the news of the colored people, nor have the Negroes made definite complaint that they have been de prived of reading the news of labor ing circles. The latter think their news, if worth publication at all, should be served to the white readers as well as colored. What is the good of publishing the doings of the colored people' if "only " colored' people, who already know of all the happenings, are to be Informed? They want the white people to read of them and it is Just now the. subject .of much dis cussion among them that their news is not considered good reading for the entire circulation of any newspa per. The bait to secure something like a circulation among the colored people of the city and suburbs has not been swallowed up to date. Those two stars wre placed on the front page of Saturday's News as in formntion to the carrier boys to whom to deliver the paper. They worked it effectively so far as can be learned. It cannot be found that any white people secured copies of the Jim Crow edition, neither did the Negroes get copies of the white edi tion unless they bought them on the Mreet. Yesterday a copy of the black edition was brought to The Times by a Negro of Churchville, who was one of n. number who came in possession of both editions. It was stated that the Negroes felt outraged by the f.T.ORE and that has the co-operation of the religious people. From Washington we. look towards Nashville as a de nominational capital." Mr. A. N. Johnson, a successful un dertaker and proprietor of the Majes tic Theater, who has donated his theater as a place for the meeting of the Women's Auxiliary of the Na tional Convention, declared: "We citizens of Nashville arc only too proud of an opportunity to show to the world that we are not only wide awake ourselves but that we want the world to know that within our gates there awaits for them a hospitable re ception. The coming of the great National Baptist "Convention should not be endangered by any lack of ef fort on the part of the business men. As chairman of the Executive Com mittee of the Negro Board of Trade and personally, I want the world to know that we are standing behind the invitation that lias been extended to the National Baptist Convention to come to this city." Rev. C. II. Clark, pastor of Mt. Olive Baptist Church, declares "There will perhaps not be given to Nash ville for the next quarter of a cen tury another opportunity to show i e move of the News, and they proposed to let the publishers ,know that as subscribers they were entitled to all the news of all sorts printed by that paper. On the other hind, they value at nought the printing or their news for colored consumption only. rage or tne jini crow edition or the News of last Satu day was head Chattanooga's dited by Prof. ed "News and Notes o Colored Population. 1 T. W. J. Tobias." One advertisement -was secured by reason of the page, th photographer of EasfpCintb street. Me- toolr -on-ln.-V siagrtV display ert;' The leading news story related to the coming National Baptist Conven tion at Nashville. Then came an item about the State Normal for col ored people at the state capital. A long quotation from Dr. B. F. Riley, of Birmingham, on "Our Duty to the Negroes " was full of advice to the white people of the south, but none of them saw it, by reason or its pub lication in this edition, which reach ed no white people. Booker Wash ington was given nearly a column. News of various churches and lodges took up considerable space. The Rev. M. W. Moore had a card in which he thanked the manage ment of the paper for an offer to give this page a week to the news of the colored people. That offer was probably made privately, and it re mains to be seen whether the colored pastor understood that the Negro news was to be sacredly kept away from white eyes. The most interest ing column was devoted to social news of colored circles. The name of the society editor was not pubM-ia-ed. Among social gatherings given prominence was a meeting of the Modern Dorcas Embroidery Circle and the Married Ladies' crub. Page 20 of the white edition was headed "A Page of Interest to Wage Earners," Wage earners among the Negroes were not permitted . to see this page of interest to them. It will be interesting to watih for Hie Jim Crow stars on the News of next Saturday. what the race and the denomination j nave none, u tne convention is re I moved or allowed to go elsewhere.

Preston Taylor, Nashville's ! oldest undertaker and a Duslness man jof known ability and who is proprie tor of Greenwood Park that has splen Ulid street car service, said, "You have my fullest co-operation, my sym- i).tuuy,my ;nnuence jrom a moral, In tellectual, religious and financial point of view. Bring the Convention to Nashville and if possible bring Philadelphia with It. We will enter tain both at the same time." Dr. R. H. Boyd. Secretary of the National Baptist Publishing Board, said, "Perhaps it Is not time for me to talk. My talk was done at the ExecutiTe Board meeting and the peo ple of Nashville Joined in my atti i j tude. I m for tie Convention first, list and always. NTashvine tie gathering t thla trUcu!ar time." Th editor of the Uaion-Review, Prof. J. D. Crenshaw, stated: "I voted In the Executive Committee for Phila delphia, but my heart always Is for Nashville, and since the Committee voted to come here we will entertain it and we will not surrender our righta to another." Rev. Wm. Haynes, chairman of the Ministers Conference, waa also called. He declared he waa going to do all he could for the entertainment of the National Baptist Convention, but that he would not care to be quoted as to his personal attitude towards the Convention coming to Nashville. There are scores of others who ex pressed themselves on their unwill ingness that Nashville should lo. the Convention. The following telegram was sent to President E. C. Morris, D. D., at Helena, Ark., and Prof. R. B. Hudson, A. M., Secretary of the National Baptist Convention, Selma, Ala.: "Persistent rumors to the effect that movements are on foot to re scind the action of the Executive Committee and carry the Convention to Philadelphia cause much uneasi ness among the citizens, who are already at work on the entertainment Wire if such action Ls probable. . , "Nashville Globe." : The Board-of Trade and the other local organizations are now at work just as though Philadelphia had made no attempt to capture the meeting, reeling assured that the Executive Committee will not rescind its action at Tuskegee. MEHARRY Y. M. C. A. ADDRESSED by dr. j. a. McMillan. The Y. M. C. A. was greatly edi fied on Sunday afternoon 23rd inst, when Dr. J. A. McMillan, professor of Gynecology of Meharry Medical College lectured on "Birds of a Featb. ,r Flock Together." The doctor made reference to na ture for examples of the truth of the proposition, and, turning to hi3 audi ence, declared that they should stand ardize their association, not on ex ternal or transient blandishments, but rather, on moral integrity, educational attainments and health. I He declared that the highest social relationship should not be established between persons of opposite tenden cies, and possessing unequal quali fications in short that they should not be unequally yoked. He advised more careful fore thought in the selection of compan ions and life partners, as the highest contributory factor to the welfare of the race thus preserving its social, moral and intellectual worth. The attendance was unusually large and consisted not only of the members of the association, but also of a large number of the studenta of Walden University and many of the people of the city. Under the auspices of the Ys M. C. A., Students, Memorial exercises will be held at Meharry Auditorium on Sunday afternoon, March 2nd, when a special programme will be rendered.
