A health warden for Baltimore, Mary land is being agitated among the colored Citizens, The health commission (white) refused to discuss the proposition with a delegation, which called upon him, for that purpose and it appealed to the mayor and he favors ii. According to fl statement recently is sued by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, a deter mined fight will be waged against lynch ing in 1920. The membership of the body has increased from 5.247 in 11)17 to 88,292 in December 1019. A diving suit made of brass lias been invented by George 11. Jackson of New York City, which promises to revolutionize deep sea diving. Jackson is a mechanic of merit and this diving suit is the work of many years. It has been tested to a depth of three hundred feet. The budget for the year 1020 of the Na tional League on Urban Conditions Among Negroes amounts to $220,000. The budget for the first year's work of the organiza tion amounted to $2,500. The organization extends from New York to New Orleans. II has an executive secretary and a field agent. During the past year more than a mil lion dollars in legacies were left Tusgee In stitute, of Dr. Booker T. Washington fame. Of recent report it is stated that there are seventeen hundred pupils in attendance, which is about four hundred more than any previous year. The school was never more prosperous nod showed more signs of doing beneficial uplift work. Some two hundred leading citizens of Greater New York met at a banquet hall to a testimonial dinner in honor of Dr. Charles 11. Roberts who is the first colored man to ever be elected to an Aldermanic seat in that city. The chairman of the evening was Fred R. Moore, editor and publisher of the New York Age. The suc cessful campaign was managed by Ralph E. Langston. "The Negro is entitled to indictment by grand jury, trial before a just judge and twelve unprejudiced jurymen," said Gover nor Robers of Tennessee before a New Year andiencee. lie denounced the spirit of lynching and said there would be none in Tennessee so long as lie was governor. This is certainly a long step in the right direction and the governor of Georgia would do well to follow in Gov. Robert's wake. \V. 11. P. Gtibbons of Port An Prince, Haiti, is out in an open loiter advising the colored citizens of the IT.l T. 8. A. to organize a separate political party. Without going into details of the subject one way of the other, it strikes the writer as being as ludicrous as the proverbial baying of the moon. If the colored citizens will vote effectively in primary election they will ac complish a great deal more than the or ganizing of an independent party.

Forty years ago Japan was among the insignificant and inconspicuous nations of the world. Today she stands as one among the three formidable powers, which are England, America and Japan. Japan has shown an ability to absorb and assimilate the civiliztion of other races which is un paralleled iii the world's history. In fifty years she advanced from an unimportant semi- barbarous nation to one of the great world powers. Japan sent her sons to German, French, English and American universities. She sent her sons to the rgeat cities of America and Western Europe to study manufacturing, business methods, and the science of war. She invited scholars, scientists, business men, soldiers and sali ors to visit her shores. The world knows the result. But just as the dissemination of the Greek civilization and Greek language over the ancient world, the uniting of the world under one government by Julius Caesar, and the disintegration of the Greek and Roman religions, paved the way for the spread of Christianity, so Japan had a period of preparation. Four hundred years ago Japan lived under the feudal system, with different lords and barons ruling over different sections of the island. Then, just as in Europe, the feudal lords finally be came merged into one king, so for three hundred years Japan went through the same process, and the result was a Mikado •who became the supreme ruler of Japan. The three hundred years in which the fepirit of nationality became crystalized In Japan were the most important years in Japan's history. It is to be hoped that Africa wil under go the same process and that the diversity of the various tribes wil be merged in a racial unity with an objective.—Negro World. FURNISHED ROOMS 317 22nd Aye.
