NOTICE.
Building Laborers’ Union No. 1 is
composed of white as well as colored
members. 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.

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

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.

Homestead Land
1 feel that my efforts to establish a
Negro farming settlement have been
in the right direction, and popular
sentiment is growing along these
lines.
' There are about six quarter sec
tions for homesteads in the Dearfield
Settlement which is located in one of
the best farming districts in Colorado.
It is only about sixty miles from Den
ver on an air line, and seventy-one
miles by rail. All conditions are fa
vorable to good crops for the dry
farmer this year. If any one desires
to acquire a homestead in this com
munity, I will point him to a location
free of charge. My only interest is
that I would like to see this fine land
in the hands of some of our worthy
people. There are now twenty-one
families located in the settlement.
The total cost of filing on a home
stead is as follows:
R. R. fare to see the ground... .$ 4.00
Livery hire to drive out to locate 2.00
Lunch 50
Making out papers 1.50
Filing with land office 16.00
Total $24.00
If you have some one locate you,
there will be an additional cost of
$30.00 —$25.00 for locating and $5.00
for the locater’s expenses. I will give
a plat of the location free and with
tne assistance of the settlers one can
easily locate and save $30.00.
Persons interested can see maps
and plats at the office of Attorney A.

A GIRL'S WILD MIDNIGHT RIDE.
To warn people of a fearful forest
fire in the Catskills a young girl rode
horseback at midnight and saved
many lives. Her deed was glorious
but lives are often saved by Dr.
King's New Discovery in curing lung
trouble, coughs and colds, which
have ended in consumption or pneu
monia. "It cured me of a dreadful
cough and lung disease,” writes W.
R. Patterson, Wellington, Texas,
“after four in our family had died
with consumption, and I gained 87
pounds ” Nothing so sure and safe
for all throat and lung troubles.
Price 50c and $1.00. Trial bottle free.

THE PEOPLE’S PRESBYTERIAN
CHURCH.
Sermon topics Sunday, Feb. 4th: 11
a. m., “St. Paul’s of a
i Philosophy That Does Not Philoso
phise the Christian Religion;’’ 5 p. m.,
“The Church and the Young People."
Sunday being Christian Endeavor

spices of this local society will take
place in lieu of the evening service
at 5 o’clock. There will be good mu
sic and good speaking. Mrs. Stella
I Maddox, the last president will pre

The annual congregational mooting
of the church last Monday night fore
shadowed a most successful year
| along all lines beginning April 1st
and ending March 31, 1913. 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. The
i members who were unavoidably ab
sent Monday night are asked to de
clare their pledges for the New Year
at their earliest convenience. Pledges
to hand have already passed our ex
pectation, being on the increase. The
pastor and officers thank the mem
bers for their unstinted support in the
past and solicit their undivided co
operation for the future.
The 5 o’clock service on Sunday
j evenings continues to prosper. All
i of our members and friends are
urged to be on time. The Sabbath
I school has taken on itself newsness
: of life. All the departments connect
| ed with a well organized school are

i Striplin is the drummer for the home
j department. Our actual attendance
and contribution are more than at
I any one time since the minister has
been on the field. Parents are asked
| to patronize this school with their
children who are not members of any
i other school.
A HERO IN A LIGHTHOUSE.
For years J. S. Donahue, So. Haven,
Mich., a civil war captain, as a light
house keeper, averted awful wrecks,
but a queer fact is, he might have
I been a wreck, himself, if Electric Bit
ters had not prevented. “They cured
me of kidney trouble and chills,” he
writes, “after I had taken other so
called cures for years, without ben
efit and they also improved my sight.
Now, at seventy, I am feeling fine.
“For dyspepsia, indigestion, all stom
ach, liver and kidney troubles, they’re
