It is one organization which has done its work for the class of labor it represents and has not stopped at a color line in the doing. Therefore it was a grave injustice to ine loyal white members it has when it was said in this paper last week that Eureka hall was the result ef the laborers of the union and was the first building for entertainment pur poses erected by colored persons in this city. By implication its white members were ignored, and this cor rection is made to do them justice. Just one block up, at 926 19th street, is the new home of The States man. Same phone, same street. DEPARTURE OF REV. WILLIAMS. After a pastorate entering upon the fourth year, Kev. W. C. Wiliams of Campbell A. M. E. church, left the city this week for Kansas City where he has been assigned by Bishop Parks to take charge of Ebenezer church. This charge is a large one, and one which has both material opportuni ties and a sentimental interest for Rev. Williams since it was in it that he was married, converted and in which he served as Sunday school su perintendent before he entered the ministry. The news that he was leaving the city while forecasted in the States man several weeks ago was officially announced only last Sunday and created a profound regret in the minds of his congregation and the friends he has made since coming here. Both for his personality and for the work he has done, his leaving is regretted. Up to the time that he took Campbell church in charge, it had a limited congregation which had its hands full maintaining itself. With his pastorate, it began to grow and became strong financially so that it haB gone on with improvements at a rate unforseen and greater than its best wishers would have imagined possible. It has been redecorated in side and out, new stained glass win dows of Biblical design put in, ce ment walks laid, property fenced in with iron fencing, carpeted, choir loft built, and in fact, every detail that could lend to the beauty or dignity of tue church looked after with consum ate skill. Praise in words is easily bestowed, but words are empty in praise of the pastorate of Rev. Wil liams when compared with the reju venated and glorified church which he leaves. He carries with him to Kansas City the best wishes of Den ver. Mrs. William and the boys will remain in Denver a few months until school is over. The successor is not yet named, and further than an intimation that it will be a man from outside the Colo rado Conference, nothing can be said DENVER NEWS Just one block up, at 926 19th street, is the new home of The States man. Same phone, same street. The Young men of the city are still talking about the smoker which oc curred at Dania hall two weeks ago. It was a larger counterpart of the one several years ago at which the whist players, the singers and the re conteurs made everybody happy. At this one which the Utopian boys were sponsors for, the crowd was larger and the time was larger also. News has come from El Paso of the death there a few w’eeks ago of Jack Ashton, a former resident of this city. He was employed in one of the leading clubs there as steward and was doing well. The cause of his death is not given. The German American Indemnity Company is depending upon its meth ods to recommend it Prompt pay ment of claims is its first principle.

The budget submitted to the congregation by the trustees and endorsed by the elders, was unanimously voted on with but one protestant. This is in deed a tangible evidence of confi dence by the members toward the officers in their effort to finance the church. The trustees request all members to respond tomorrow financially to clear the track for the spring meeting of Presbytery. That this church might be even more favorably con THE STATESMAN- sidered by Presbytery in the future than the past is left entirely within i the charge of all her members.
