Miss Dayse D. Wal
ker’s Lecture. Week before last. Miss Dayse L) Walker, a young lady from Iniauapolis, Ind., who has evol. ved and manvges a beautiful home for rescue girls which will ever stand in realism or memory by fhe deeas wrought there, as a testimonial of her worth and pre eminence in the world, delivered a series of lectures before various church audiences in this city. Using our own phraseology, her subject was: “Be moral, be hon est, be good.’’ She is highly euucated and thoroughly re titled yet she retains a large degree of feminine modesty to make her the more appreciated. We must admit ai d we do so unreluctantlythat she is above the average woman in in tel 1 i. gence, wi and in commanding the attention of an audience. She Simply speaks right along, as Antony su.d, and is vers direct in her illusions—she makes no innuendos, but calls spades, spades. We are hat d 1 y prepared to contradict any of her speeches. She wonders if the women ol col or are not up to the standard, as alleged by some of our colored men. Her arguments were for cible, clear and unmistakable. She spoke south'tig words of men who ate so brut sh as to throw a girl in the ditch and then leave her, all alone. But that part of her speech was but the senti ments of the Forum verbatim. One thing she said may not bear the steel test and that was this: ‘‘The men will pardon me for being plain, but I speak what I know and am not rash or rat. tied, when I say the Negro men do not think one.fiftieth of their women as the white race think of theirs.'' SVe are not prepared to prove the contrary, but the as sertion is a little broad. We are glad to know that even little Miss Watson of this city, ha- spoken of M ss Walker's lec ture in the highest terms. Lincoln News. Rev.

The ten days following the 4th of July have witnessed the pres ence in the Negro Building of a great stream of visitors, Among them was Governor Hughes of New \ork, who, after looking carefully through the exhibit, is reported to have pronounced it the most unique feature of the Jamestown Exhibition. Other distinguished visitors were Dr. W. P, Thirkeld, President of Howard Unive rsity, Rev. W. H. Burton and Dr. J. E. Moreland, International Secretaries of the Y. M C. A., and Dr. W. L Tay lor, President of the U. O. of True Reformers, and many oth. ars. Chairman T. J Calloway an nounced that the management of the Jamestown Exposition is anxious to have as many colored people as possible attend the Ex position, and to this end all re strictions as to race will be elimi nated so far as the management ;an do. The Board of Governors ;alled in a body in the Negro Building last Thursday and after nspectiug exhibits therein, re. solved to issue a manifesto set. mg forth the policy of the Ex josition. Mr, C. C. White came to the Exhibition and installed the mu. ^ c at _ rv _ ivymi uAuiuiiui ncgiu v-zuiii [.iuatsi a n four days time, thus breaking he record for quickness of action u establishing his exhibit. The lusical exhibit is attracting much uterest among the musical visit rs and the unique arrangements >r the musical instruments by h'gro manufacturers-and title ages of Negro Composers is ery excellent. There has been placed in the fegro Building a life-size por •ait of Col. Giles B. Jackson, hich is the work of Mr- J. C. arley, a colored artist of Vir inia. The portrait is a credit ole work of art. The historic tableaux that have sen executed by Miss Meta Vaux ’arrick of Philadelphia have eeu entirely completed. The sries, as heretofore announced, spresent the scenic reproduction f the history of the Negro from he landing at Jamestown until he present. These groupes have een worked out with great ar. istic accuracy and the effect pro* uced under the artificial light ig is simply grand. Dr. Thir eld, of Howard University, the ther day, said that this exhibit f Miss Warrick’s was the finest liitig in the Negro Building. In iew of the very favorable com lents on other features, this tatement of Dr- Thirkeld is ex eedingly complimentary to the rtist. Saturday, August 3rd, has been et apart as Negro Educationa )ay at the Exhibition and Dr, looktr T. Washington, Principal f Tuskegee Institute has con* ented to deliver the address ou hat day. There will be other eatures including music by the [umpton Institute Band and the ’iske Jubilee Singers- It is •robable that the largest crowd f the Exposition, outside of the ;sit of the present, willbe pres ut ou that day.
