Leon Pryor has been fortunate in
securing the agency of the Rogers
Brothers silver in Denver. The rep
utation of Rogers’ silver is too well
known for comment to be necessary
on the quality of the goods. The
company has empowered Mr. Pryor
to offer a set of spoons sold at $1.95
and to give as a premium to buyers
a kitchen set valued at $2.50. This
is a most extraordinary offer and
shows that the company values the
service of Mr. Pryor. They give him
a salary and also a commission on
goods sold. He has made Denver his
home for ten years and is especially
well known through the part in lo
cal theatricals. He will canvass the
city.
THE STATESMAN-
A surprise birthday party in honor
of Mr. J. J. Bates was given by his
most beloved wife, Mrs. J. J. Bates,
at their home, 2910 Glenarm Place,
last Monday evening. The house was
decorated most beautifully with car
nations and smilax. There were
games and a delightful time was had.
The guests were: Mrs. A1 Kerr, Mr.
and Mrs. Wm. Wilson, Mr. William
Sanders, Mr. Dick Harris, Frank
Stevens, Mr. S. Helems and Miss
Martha Johnson, the Misses Lovie,
Emma, Mattie, Criseva, Francis and
Grace Helems, Mrs. T. J. Trusty,
Mrs. J. Hollie, Mrs. Jestine Halliday.
The recital of Madam Anita Patti
Brown at the People's church Mon
day night was well attended. Those
who heard this charming soprano on
her former appearance say she was
even better this time. At any event,
it may be said of her that for power
in any part of the scale she is an ex
ceptional artist. Her rendtions of
popular airs was enjoyed by the most
people. In the more difficult classics,
she showed her technique and range,
and was hailed with applause, ‘queen
of song.” The recitation by Miss Cor
telia Reynolds and piano solo by
Miss Rhodie Anderson were delight
ful additions to the chorus music
which completed the program.

NEGROES HAVE MERIT REPORT
TO THE CONTRARY NOT
WITHSTANDING.
The general lack of knowledge of
the ability of the colored physicians
of Denver to perform surgical work
is most difficult to meet for the rea
son that the ethics of the medical
esslon absolutely bar the adver
tising of the merits of a doctor in
ny particular case. For instance, it
not professional for a doctor to say
■ r himself, and is equally embarrass
ing to the conscientious physician to
have said of him that in the case of
Mr. So and So he effected a cure.
The Statesman recognizes these pro
, ssional considerations and yet
■ shea to give to our colored doctors
such reputs as Is justly theirs. It is
rot fair that the fame of white practi
oners alone should be exalted.
Therefore front time to time with
ilit the use of names of either patient
or doctor, we shall tell of success. It
is in the highest degree -creditable
that a colored physician recently was
no of the two doctors bearing the
major responsibility for a capital op
• ;ntion that was of doubtful success.
For three hours three labored on the
surgical work and the speedy recov
ery of the patient Is glory enough for
the colored physician.

There Is but On. Path to Peace, Siyl
President Scarborough.
Xn his speech at the universal peace
congress recently held In London
President W. S. Scarborough of WU
berforce (O.) university said: The fact
that the wide world is awakening to
the dangers confronting society at
large Is a good sign. We are sure that
the weapons of good will eventually be
more potential than those of evil in ad
justing the Negro Question in the
states. There must be an uprising of
fearless men of all races—men who see
the right and dare to do it in averting
trouble and discountenancing anything
that panders to race prejudice; men
who will preach untiringly and un
ceaslngly the gospel of the common
brotherhood of man; who will work for
legislation that will render equal Jus
tice to all: who will unite In stifling
crime, helping the fallen and guarding
the youth; who will plead for that gen
eral exercise of Christian fellowship
that will lead to confidence in and re
spect for self and others.
The Negro Is needed in the develop
ment of America. He Is native to its
customs. Its religion and its laws; has
virtues as well ns vices. He has given
his blood In its defense, and it owes
him a chance. It becomes a matter of
right and duty that both north and
south should unite actively In mutual
co-operation with the race for law and
order, for pence and fraternity, for
right and Justice. There Is but one
path to peace and the final adjustment
of this question.
And that Is to use the law for the
protection and punishment of white
and black citizens alike, to practice the
true Christianity that is preached and
to leave the door of hope open to the
Negro as to any other people. This
work will devolve upon godly preach
ers. self sacrificing, intelligent teach
ers. devoted philanthropists and wide
awake, earnest students of sociology,
and it Is the mission of the higher In
stitutions of learning for the Negro in
the United States to raise up. educate
and Inspire the coming generations of
the rare to assist in the consummation
of this purpose.^
