FRIDAY, JULY 18, 1913. Flesh and Bone. There seems to be a tendency on tlv part of some of the iearers in this state to give flesh to some and bone to others. The matter has readied the point where it becomes necessa.'y that a halt be called. A few weeks ago the Volunteer State Medical Association convened in annual session in Columbia. A rep resentative of the Globe visited each business session. A full account of the meeting was given and an effort was made to let the world know what the doctor of Tennessee are accomplish ing, which was its duty and is the duty of all newspapers. No reputa ble newspaper charges for news, nor nre reporters allowed to make charge for such service. A resolution passed at the above mentioned meeting that the represen tative uf one of the daily papers in this city be allowed a stipulated amount for the services he had ren dered. This representative is paid a standard salary for his services f which he boasts. He acknowledges that the paper for which he works does not allow him to receive money for his services, but despite this fact when this appropriation was made n Entire Greatest Money-Saving Sale on Record We are face to face with the tremendous task of selling $20,000 worth of Dry Goods, Shoes and Furnishings, and selling it in the greatest possible haste.

It was then stated that some advertising would be wanted which was gladly accepted. was not paid before the change of of- fleers, consequently when the new president took charge he absolutely refused to recognize the bill. The do nation made to the representative of the daily paper who is receiving a salary was half the amount of the bill for advertising. There was not 1n1,Ph n a murmur bv n jinele as 1nucn as a murmur Dy a single member of the body, the president not excepted, as to making a donation to . . . nanpr man wno IS paid Dy a aauy paper to look after the Negro news. This practice has gone on until it has become monotonous. The people appreciate the Globe. They want to see' it succeed because they know that the services rendered are such that nre not rendered by any other papr in the state. The claim is not set up here that it can not be, but we chal lenge r.v.y one to show where the fi'iily papers are siving the service to the -Negroes o Tennessee that the Nashville Globe is giving. The ser vice of the Nashville Globe is given frre of charge, all that 1 asked ct the people is that they pay their sub scriptions. When it comes to advertising we re serve the right to set our own prices and no man. be he president of '.he Volunteer Stair Medical Association or what not, can set the price we must charge for advertising. The president of the Volunteer State Medical Association felt that th" Globe should charge only two-fifth the amount f.ir an advertisement as was given to the representative of the daily paner who is paid a salary for reporting the meeting. We ask in th name of common decency if this is fair. We tHt if the members of the Volun teer State Medical Association approve of such tactics. .We know they lo no!. We do not care how much '.s given in the way of donations to the representatives of daily papers, we only acl: fhat what we charge for ser vices rendered be paid.

The Globe goes where the daily papers cf Nashville are not known and may never be known. In fact, they are not striving to be known outside cf a limited sphere, even if they were known it would not make any difference so far as the Negro is cencerned, they would go on In their same old way magnifying his vices and ignoring his virtues. The president of the Volunteer State Medical Association has refused to pay the bill on the ground that it was too much, but we wish to- infrom him once for all that the bill will re main just what it is. We cannot submit to the practice of making flesh of one and bone of the other. Our Board of Trade. Again we feel it our duty to call attention to our Board of Trade. We have said time and again that this is a good organization. We have en deavored to point out some of the causes that are destroying its useful ness. At a recent meeting it was suggested that the secretary of the Board of Trade keep all of the pa pers we'l informed as to what the Beard hopes to do, for we realize that it will require earnest effort of all the members and all the help that can be rendered by the newspapers to make the Board what it should be. The full benefit?, of such an organi zation cannot be realized when the people who constitute it are backward ii business, or In other words have not acquired large holdings In com mercial affairs. The Negro Board of Trade can be of great benefit, not only to the business men but to all th people, if a free and untrampled policy is adhered to, but so long as ihe secretary of the Board of Trade refuses to give out to all the paper? the information in his hands, so long will the Board of Trade stand still nrul its usefulness in the community be hi.mpered. We are almost persuaded to say that most of all the Board of Trade nerds a secretary. We do not say this as a reflection to the present of ficial, but that we believe It a rea sonable solution of a condition this detrimental. It is natural for any man to look after his interest first, and since the secretary of the Board of Trade is a reporter for one of the daily papers in the city, it ia reasonable that he be expected to ren unreasonble that he be expected , to render impartial service.

T:ible Himnk. forced by this that it wiil be most natural for the secretary to. withhold from llie other ' papers ""the na ws of " the Board of Trade until ht bhall ha,ve used It in the paper that he repre sents. We do not look upon the Board of Trade as being a paper organization; certainly no paper is subsidizing th Board, but one paper is paying the secretary a salary for his services to that which means that the secretary is going to withhold the information that should be given to all the papers until he shall have used It in the paper for which he works. These are plain facts and cannot be denied. We do not believe any organization can be found In this city that can accom plish as much good as this Board of Trade, but so long as the gateway Is chocked, so long will the wheels of progress, so far as the Board of Trade la concerned, be clogged. Opposition to Secret Societies. The Mosaic Templars of Tennessee and the Supreme Lodge Independent Order of Immaculates met In Mem phis the first week In this month. The Grand Lodge Knights of Pythias and the Grand Court of Calanthe met here last week. In August the Ma sons and Odd Fellows will meet in Jackon, and the Benevolent Society will meet in Springfield. There are other societies In the state, but we call these to mind at this time. These organizations are doing a great good for the people, and are furnishing a cheaper Insurance than is furnished by and Industrial Insurance Company, and right here is where opposition sets up. The Insurance company are urcing the states to make laws thai will abridge the privileges of the so ck ties. The Industrial Insurance is opposed to the endowment featur-i and the sick and accident companies are opposed to the sick benefit and en dowment and burial feature, and so it may be expected that efforts wi,l be put forth in every state to ch?ck the progress of societies. It l: not fair, but all things are not settled by fairness or justness. It is a business proposition with the insurance com panies and it must be looked upon more so by the leaders of the societies. More business tact must be implied and less frivolity. More of the funds must be saved and applied to the good of the members of the Order and less spent for regalia. The insurance companies are not going to stop and the leaders In society work might as well get ready for an endless war.

We expect to see the Kiosk doing double time in the near future, politically speaking. The K. of P.'s are gone and the people of Nashville can breathe now until the. 24th of August. In the mean time let U3 hope for plenty of rain and a big bean crop. The Wilson administration has been playing a waiting game in the Mexi can wrangle, arid maybe the time limit has run out. The European na tions are getting busy. PROMINENT CALANTHEAN HON ORED BY THE GRAND COURT. Mrs. Rebecca H.
