The news has been waited over the state that there is to be wbat can be styled 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 Univenal Church,” over ran with all sorts of doctrine with no definite plans haaven-ward, but get there If you can, with Dr. Brand, at his head, couple up with Drs. 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 tune pregram, that Dr. Harris, the then president of the conventicn was beard to say that tbo program was one in keeping with the spirit of the age, and that the old time doc. trine, Jesui Christ and Him crucified and the doctrine of baptism wore ob solete, and was not what the people wanted to bear or words to that af fect. The convention rose in its might and quickly thrust the pro gram aside and gave Drs. Harris, and Martin, to understand that they wore not to dictate to the Baptist* as to what they should do, or uot do. He was to understand Ihst he wa( neither bishop nor bees, hut the ser vant of the Baptist. We wonder w^iy Dr. Brand, keeps “hobnobbing” with ti e ffegio Bap tist of the State? If he is a Baptist and want the help of the Negro Bap tist of the State, why does h» doit? If he cares to help them, can be not do it without censuring the Illinois Biptiat Association, and tho South ern Baptist Convention? Why does he tter to raise the slavery ques tion? It is for the purpose of de ceiving the Ignorant and designing Negro Baptist tf the State. Yes, the Southern white people held slaves at one time, and they re pented of, and tbeirfc sincerity is proven by the great help they are giving the Negroes iu the bomb. They are helping to build schools to train the Negro JBtnUliy, and last while the Southern Baptist Conven tion wae iu session ta St Louis, our own Ur. Button E. Griggs, the Cor responding secretary of the Nation al Baptist Convention, delivered an add seas to that body, which result ed into a contribution of *50,000,00 What do we hear next? W hy, borne of these same men say that Ur. Grtggs sold out the Negro Baptist to the Southern Baptist Convention. Bow could this be done, when the National and the Southern Baptist conventions co-operate jointly in eduuaiiuuai and mission work? and tli* National Baptist convention, publisnes tne literature lor Ike Ne groes in tbiscountr; and the Foreign held. What is there for the while Baptist of the South to gain by thu ooniribubion of 9£0,O<C,0U? It can be plaialy seen that there is nothing whatever to be gained other than to help the Negroes to preach a whole Christ. the asms charge went oat against Phillips and McWilliams; Phillips, sold out the Baptist of the Btate to Dr. Brand's side for #3 aud Bro. Mo Williams, for #10 per month, a totui amouut of #13.do per (noth. if Dr. Brand, U sincere iet him stop “hobnobbing” and prove his sincer ity to hia mnk and eider Negro Bap tist brsUtrsa, by doing sums thing lor them. The proof of iho pudding is tne eating. Not by lip gush loyalty. Yes, Dr. the ooutk at one time held slaves, end she has repeated of it and too, the while Baptist of the Buntb staud hand pn hand with the National Baptist Convention, in Mis sion aud Educational work. We have otted the #60,(«0,00 contribution or rather proposition, that was giv ing out at Nashville, last Heptember during the .National Convention, 36 acres of land is ail that was required Dr. Htokes of Alabama, and several other ministers in the convention propose to give the the site. The reader can tee it is a go. Now iet Dr. Brand, repent aud “do likewise” with bis speckle bird brethren, aud they can soon have the speckle bird convention in operation. The people are wondering why it It that Dr. Brand, tries to make war on the Illinois Baptist Association, aud the Southern Baptist Convention. Tne reason lies ia the fact, that there is sbout as much difference between these two organizations, and the Ill inois Baptist State convention, as there is betweca thorn and - Pedo bsptist organization. The State Convention, favors “The Church Federation, Free-Will ordination and Alien Immersion.” In other words they are sailing sailing under the false oolors and the guise of Mission ary Baptist, while there are some thing ulst, 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 meokly lay aside the Bless ed Old Book, take my plastering tools and mount the scaffold, and feel that I would be of more service to my Christ, community and coun try. O. 0.

Editor Gazette: — I wish to speak to the Baptist Family of Illinois: Brethren and Sisters: — Greeting:—When our Convert tion adjourned last June in Auro ro, it did so to convene with the Pleasant Grove Baptist church of Springfield 111., June 10th 1914 by tneir invitation through Past or J. J. Chappell. V\e have been resouly informed by them thtu our Correspondent Secretary Dr. PL. H. Borden that for some cause they could not take the conven tion. We at once set about, with the Cur. Sec'y casting among the churches of the statu to see who would care lor us this year. At once the doors of the following churches were thrown open Oli vet and Providence of Chicago and the two churches combined at Carbondalc with Kcvs. Dorsey and Hill, pastors. The Executive Board was call ed and a unanimous vote was takru u\ favor of Carbondale, for June lOth. You are teercfore asked as a| family to make every needed pre paration and come Carbondale, ill , June to, 19^4 at 9:30 0. m. Let every baptist church, Sab batn School, Mission circle and indeed every Baptist organization belonging to Baptist churches in the Siace be represented there without (ail. We havo establish ed Thursday as Missionary day when every effort will be bent toward raising money lor Miss ions Home and 1‘oreigo. We, wouldjj.ifce to raise that day lor missions alone $1000.00 (one thousand dollars.) Let us tas Baptist lor once lorget the small amount required lor represent ation fee. But let us come to the help ol the Lord as against the mighty and hear our captain say forwaVd march. Go preach the gospel to every creature. Come this year prepared not to raise points of order but to raise money lor the extension ol the kingdom of our Redeemer. The cause is demanding and the people are looking for men and women ol service, and not conic to show what we know about parlcmentary rules of order. The cause is greater than men. Therefore to he like he who sent us we come to minister and not to be minister ed unto. Friday is Educational day. Everbody and everything must work toward that end. Both the men and women have said that all moneys sent us must be used for the purpose designated. You need not have any fear come and bring the Lord's money. Western College Macon Mo., and our National Training School Lincoln Heights Washington D. C. must be looked alter Living ston School Metropolis III., must not be overlooked. The efes of God and the people are upon us. The want of office should play no part but the doing of the work should claim our whole attention Let every Baptist organization see how much money you can bring or send and how much work you can help do for the advance ment of the Kingdom of God on earth. Let it be said of the color ed Baptist what was said ol the builders of the walls ol Jerusalem "The people had a mind to work." Remember we have only one convention in the state made up of men and women and all , worfing together under one Flag with a triple declaration One Lord, One Faith and One Bap tism.
