A Speckled Bird Convention.
The news has been wafted over the
state that there is to be what can be
stylesi a Speckle Bird Convention,
because, if has specks of eveiy de
nominational color and wings to car
ry it in every direction that one
“Great Big Universal Church,” over
run with all aorta of doctrine with
no definite plans heaven-ward, but
get there if you can, with Dr. Brand,
at his bead, couple up with Dra. Har
ris, and Martin, of Chicago; who
made up a program for the Conven
tion which was held at Aurora, last
June with only one sermon. This
high tone program, that Dr. Harris,
the then president of the convention
waa heard to say that the program
was one in keeping w ith the spirit of
the age, and that the old time doo.
trine, Jesus Christ and Him crucified
and riie doctrine of baptism were ob
solete, and was not what the people
wanted to bear or words to that ef
fect. The convention rose in in
might and quickly throat the pro
gram aside and gavj Dra. Il&rt is, and
Martin, to understand that they
were not to dictate to the Baptists us
to what they should do, or not do.
He was to understand that he was
neither bishop nor hot s, but the ser
vant of the Baptist.
We wonder why Dr. Brand, keeps
“hobnobbing” with the Pcgro Bap
tist of the State? If he is n Baptist
aud want the help of the Negro Bap
tist of the State, wky does he doit?
If he cares to help them, eon lie not
do it without censuring the Illinois
Biptist Association, and the South
ern Baptist Convention? Why doe9
he sees to raise the slavery ques
tion? it is lor the purpose of de
ceiving the ignorant and designing
Negro Baptist c f the State.
Yes, the Southern white people
held slaves at one time, and they re
pented of, and their sincerity is
proven by the great help they tie
giving the Negroes in the South,
i'hey are helping to build schools to
tram the Negro Ministry, and last
while the Southern Baptist Conven
tion was in session i.i bt. Louis, oar
own Dr. Sutton E. Griggs, the cor
responding secretary ol the Nation
al baptist Coiiveulieu, duliveied an
a idaess to that body, w hich result
ed into a contribution of $60,1)00,1)0
What do we hear next? Why, some
of these same men say that Dr.
Griggs sold out the Negro Baptist
to the Southern Baptist Convention.
How could this be done, when the
National and the Southern baptist
conventions co-operate jointly in
educational and mission work? ano
thu National baptist convention,
publishes the iileiaturo lor the Ne
groes in this country and the Foreign
Held. What is there for the white
baptist ol the South to gain by Uie
contribution ol #60,(X,0,00? It can be
plainly seen that there is nothing
whatever to be gained oiber than to
lieip the Negroes to preach • whole
Christ.
The same charge went out againat
Poillips and McWilliams; Phillips,
sold out the Baptist ol the State to
Ur. Brand’s side lor #3 and Bro. Mc
Williams, for #10 per mouth, a total
amount of #13.00 pur moth.
if Ur. Brand, is sincere let him stop
“hobnobbing” acd prove his sincer
ity to his milk and eider Negio Bap
tist brethren, by doing something lor
them. The proof of the pudding is
the eating. Net by Up gush loyalty.
Yes, Dr. the south at une tune hald
slaves, and the baa rupee ltd ol it
and too, the white Baptist of the
South stand baud (in hand with the
National Baptist Convention, in Mis
sion and Bducatsonal work. We
have cltod the #60,000,uo contribution
or rather proposition, that was giv
ing out at Nashville, last September
during the National Convention, 36
acres of land is all that was required
Dr. Blokes of Alabama, and several
other ministers in the convention
propose to give the the site. The
reader can see it is a go. Now let
Dr. Brand, repent and “do likewise”
with his speckle bird brethren, and
they can soon have the speckle bird
convention in operation.
The people are wondering why it is
that Dr. Braud, tries to mst« war on
lha Illinois Baptist Association, and
the Southern Baptist Convention.
The reasou lies in fhe fact, that there
is, about as mtich difference between
these two organizations, ami the Ill
inois Baptist btate convention, as
there is betweea them and a Pedo
baptist organization. The State
Convention, liver* “The Church
Federation, Free-Will ordination and
Alien immersion. in oiner wuru»
they are sailing sailing under the
false colors and the guise of klission
ary Baptist, while there are some
thing els* , God only knows what. I
for one will raise my voice against
all snob doctrine if it cost me my
ministerial reputation. Before I’d de
that I’d meekly lay aside I he Bless
ed Old Book, take my plastering
tools and mount the scaffold, and
feel that I would bo of more service
to my Christ, community and coun
try.

An Idle Christian.
There is no excuse for an idle
Christian. An Idle Christian is
Satan's workshop.
He can find something to em
ploy him. Jesus says go and
work in my vineyard, rich re
wards are offered to laborers.
He also said, to work while it
is called day, for the night tomes
when no man can .work. Let
none hear you idly saying there
is nothing you can do while the
souls of men are dying, and the
Master calls (or you
We should work spiritually and
try to instill into the minds of
the unregenerated to accept
! Christ as their Saviour. Wc must
[not grow weary in the good work.
He full ol zeal, as Nehemiah,
was in ancient times while the
enemies scoffed him, he piayed
and con.inucd to work on the
wall, for the people had a mind
to work. One of the writers, j
says that a certain woman which
had been healed of evil spin s
infirmities and many others which
followed Christ ministered unto
him of their substance as He
went through the villages, preach
mg and shewing the glad tidings
ot the Kingdom oi God
1 here is no excuse for an idle
Christian for the church, or aux

men nave a mind to work, 'lhese

him, working lor him. O how it
is to labor for the cause of Christ
lhese women were last at the
cross and firs* at the tomb to
carry the news of his rcsuirtciion
We as Christians must not be
idle. A woman wrought a good
work on the Saviour when she
unnointed his body for burial,
and after his burial they brought
sweet spices that they might an
noint him.
We cannot be too poor to lab
or for his cause. God command
ed a poor widow to feed Elijah,
as the rich men were casting in
their gills unto the treasury, the
widow gave two mites, all that
she possessed.
We should be workers in the
Master’* cause, so that idler*!

Dear sisters, let us work on

Bethel A. M. K. church was
burned Monday March 23rd 7 P
M. The building was a total
loss only saving a few of its con
tents. The fire was supposed to
have been caused by spark* from
a R. K. locomotive, which pa*s
eci a short lime before the fire
was discovered on the top of the
building.
For a time it seemed as if the
fire would destroy the parsonage
only a short distance away, but
was saved and its contents by a
bucket brigade. All the people
around assisted in fighting the
flames, It was the largest and
best church in the city, being
valued at $1600 00
We helrd our services in the
public school building Sunday.
We thank all the the people
lor their assistance they render
ed us: If it it had not been for
their heroic work our parsonage
and all of its contents would have
been destroyed. We also thank
the Board ol Education for allow
ing us to hoi d our services in the
school building and for all the
assistance that was rendered us,
