The recent editorial by ex-President j.oosevelt on “Lynching and Lawless ness’ should center public attention upon a growing evil which is gnawing at the vitals of the Nation. As Mr. Roosevelt says, “when men grow ac customed to lynching men for one crime they speedily begin to lynch them for other crimes.” “The usual crime,” once alleged as the sole justi nable excuse for lynching, has now become the most unusual cause. Just as lynching and lawlessness cannot be confined to one cause, so it can not be confined to one race or to one section of the country. Lawlessness is a swift and sure contagion which respects neither lines of latitude nor geographical demarcation. if slav ery could have been confined to the South, there would have been no Re publican party and no forcible eman cipation. As the Nation could not live hall free fifty years ago, so it cannot endure half lawless and hold law abiding today. The calling of a slave roll under the shadow of Bunker Hill monument then was no more improb able than the burning alive of human ueings on Boston Common is likely now. Negroes by the thousands have been murdered, lynched, tortured, and burned alive with indescribable hor rors. while the unabashed perpetrat •rs laugh with ghoulish glee at the nullity of the law. Immunity from punishment is high license for law lessness. Gruesome funeral pyres light the midnight sky with their dis mal glare from Texas to Coatesville. The American people look impotently on with a momentary shudder, only to lapse into their accustomed mood, insure expectancy of another shock. At each horrid happening the press indulges in a heated spasm of right eous indignation, but soon grows cold again. The outlaws are rarely brought to trial, never to justice. The National conscience is becoming sore. Is this the final expression of our boasted American Christian civiliza tion? Are the energies of the Ameri can people so focalized upon material values that the moral sense has be come atrophied? The righteous en forcement of righteous law is the greatest practical issue before the na tion today. For in this is involved not only its justification for existence, but also the perpetuity of its life. Loose talking and thinking has as cribed to Assessor Arnold full credit for the reductions in taxes this year. That is not fair to the poor, derided Rush bill, which after years of litiga tion has at last accomplished the ac tual consolidation of the city and county of Denver and brought about a reduction in the levy. A protest was registered with the mayor recently against the foul con dition in which the pool is kept at the public bath house and against the ab solute closing of the pool on the nights when colored people are supposed to use it. BISHOPS’ COUNCIL NOTES. Executive Body of A. M. E. Church Showered With Requests For Aid. At the semiannual meeting of the council of bishops recently held in Baltimore the Rev. M. M. Ponton, pres ident of Campbell college, Jackson, Miss., accompanied by a delegation of ministers from his state, presented the needs of the institution to the council. As the college is largely supported by the farmers of the state and in view of the fact that their crops were partiaily destroyed by the boll weevil last year. President Penton urged that the coun cil recommend to the general confer ence a substantial appropriation for the school to the end that the work of educating the masses of young men and women in that, particular section of the south might not suffer for want of funds to meet current expenses. Bishop <T. Shaffer was selected to deliver the quadrennial sermon at the opening session of the general law making body of the denomination at the general conference In May. The quadrennial address to the church as a whole is being prepared by Bishop C. S. Smith, who has charge of the .work of the A. M. E. church of Georgia. Tin* bishops also heard a plea from a number of ministers of the Baltimore conference asking that they recom mend that the general conference make mi appropriation to aid Bethel church.

ALMOST LOST HIS LIFE. S. A. Stid, of Mason, Mich., will never forget his terrible exposure to a merciless storm. “It gave me a dreadful cold.” he writes, “that caus ed severe pains in my chest, so it was hard for me to breathe. A neigh bor gave me several doses of Dr. King’s New Discovery which brought great relief. The doctor said I was on the verge of pneumonia, but to continue with the Discovery.

On Monday evening there was a serious spell of bad weather, but within Shorter church, where the V M. C. B. was presenting Prof. H. T Keating, there was plenty of good speaking to offset it so that the audi ence was well repaid for braving the storm. His address was oi the prac ; tical kind that is coming into vogue I instead of the spread eagle oratory \ of the old time spell-binder. By no ' means did he lack eloquence, but the burden of his discourse was instruct ive rather than sentimental, so that ! the reason and conscience were ap- J pealed to more than the mere emo (ions. He showed that a man of weight appreciated the value of ad versity for the training it gives and the preparation for greater things The man of proper weight is the well rounded man. Through many details he followed this subject, throwing on it the great light of his many-sided training and illustrating it by stores and similles that were pointed and fetching. At the close the gathering resolved itself into a social which continued until midnight. On Tuesday Prof Kealing went to Colorado Springs j where he spoke again. f Mrs. Lillie ames left Thursday for Indianapolis to join her daughters, Carrie and Pearl.
