Dr. Washington Gives Bits of History, Dr. Washington In the course of Us remarks said: "The name which thia hospital la to bear Is that of the John A. Andrew Memorial hospital. I hope all of fOU know that it is In memory of the late John A. Andrew, for a number Of years governor of Massachusetts, .es pecially known as the ‘great war gbv eraop of Massachusetts,’ who not only distinguished himself as a governor and an autlslnvcry man, but who was especially active in seeing to It that colored troops were put into the Feder al army at an early date. ”He not only emphasized his lutetjeet In the colored people during the time the war was going on. but afterwarA when peace was declared, ho continued to be a firm friend of the colored man, and the descendants? or some of thepfc of Governor Andrew are erecting fida memorial hospital at a cost of InO.OOO- I am sorry that the donors wlii not and do not permit the calling of tbalr names, but It Is only necessary to ijiky that those who gave the money for the erection of this hospital are firm, and generous friends of tho school MM. have been for a number of years.” Thanks were tendered Mrs. ThomM G.

These have a native popu lation of 8.OOO.O0Q.

They attended the recent meeting of the national Baptist con vention in Pittsburg, where they laid before that organization plans for starting a fund of SIO,OOO for the es tablishment of a chain of industrial schools in South Africa. Tbelr work ns highly praised. Itev. J. N. Meuse, another mission ary supported by the foreign mission board, was n visitor at the 1010 ses sion of the convention. He has been working in co-operation with the Rev. Mr. East at Middlcdrlft. He now has full charge of that station, as Mr. East has been put in Rev. Mr. MurlTs place while the latter is in this country. In advocacy of the plans for indus trial schools Mrs. Murff says: "Christian civilization already has gained a firm foothold in South Africa, and 1 have learned by personal contact with the wildest tribes that the native Africans possess many worthy traits of character. I found among some of the tribes, notably tbs Matabele and Basnto. many men and women who Would compare favorably with any race on earth. These people need only the magic touch of Christian civiliza tion to develop them Into a powerful SOople" OCTOBER CRISIS MAGAZINE. Bluntly Refutes Taft’s Theory of Solv ing Race Problem. The October Crisis Is Interesting and varied, as usual. Editorially It comments on President Taft’s latest dictum that the Negro should come ; "more and more under the guardian ship of the white south.” When n guardian is appointed, says the Crisis. It Is usually because be has shown In the past some capacity for the posi tion. One would not usually ash a murderer to guard life, nor a slave driver to direct labor, nor a libertine to protect girls—at least not nnless be bad shown the fruits of repentance. The Crisis Klims up the record of southern “guurdinnshlp" of the Negro In “nine burning wordsßln very, pe onage. mulattoes. murder, mobs, lynch ing- disfranchisement. Illiteracy and prejudice. “We submit.” It says, “to any un prejudiced judge that a people that have ahown no grenter capacity for dealing with u great social problem than these fearful words Indicate are not lit to be given sole and exclusive charge of 10,000.000 cattle, much lees 10,000.000 human souls. “And we further declare that a man who. In the light of the history of this land, can stand np and deny to the conscience and ability of the north and west any right to help in the settlement of n problem which belongs to them just as much as It belongs to the south. If not more—we declare that such a nun has no business to i>o president of the United States.” The leading Illustrated article of the month gives an account of the Im portant and little known Christiana Hot. In which black men, fighting for their right to freedom. flrrit upon southern slave catchers and spilled the •rat blood of the dvil war. John Haynes Holmes, the champion of the Negro in the white pulpits of -New York, has a ringing tetter on the “con tagion of the south” an shown In the Oontosvitle horror.
