WORKING HARD TO
WIPE OUT DEBT
THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1911.
Congregation of Wayman Mis
sion Chapel Is Deserving
of Popular Support.
MAYOR IS IN SYMPATHY
Expresses Wish That Colored Folk
Will Be Successful la Their
The colored people who are work
ins energetically to' raise enough
money to clear the debt of the Way
man Mission chapel, are enthusiastic
about their chances of successfully
wiping out the obligation at one
stroke, but they are laboring against
gTeat difficulties due to the fact that
the public generally Is incredulous
and apt to believe that they are be
ing victimized. Solicitors of funds
regsrdless of their purpose, rarely j
find the "welcome" sign hung out
in their honor and this is especially
true in the case of those who are
working for the good of the colored
people of the city. Many have gain
ed the impression that they are be
MAYOR filVE APPROVAU
Foreseeing that this might be
true, Mrs. Lavlgne Garnett of Chi
cago, who is in charge of the cam
paign, has seen fit to call upon May
or Ilsrry M. Schrlver in company
with members of the congregation
of the Wayman Mission chapel and
have explained to him Just what
they are trying to do. The mayor
expressed his hearty sympathy in the
movement and gave Mrs. Garnett a
letter over his own signature in
which be expressed bis confidence
in the colored workers and their
undertaking. Armed with this and
with the support of many of the
city's best people, the colored mem
bers of the congregation feel safe
in coming before the public with
their appeal for aid in saving their
BtTLDIXO WEEDS REPAIR.
Mrs. Garnett and her workers de
serve assistance, if for no other rea
son, because of the courage they
have, shown in assuming the task
which is before them. Faced with
the almost certainty of losing their
chapel and cognizant of the fate that
befell the McKlnley Baptist colored
congregation which has lost its
place of worship thrcugh failure to
pay its debt, the congregation of the
Wayman Mission became desperate
and called upon Mrs. Garnett to aid
them. Mrs. Garnett found that the
church is in the rut financially and
that for seven years past, not even
the Interest has been paid on the
mortgage which amounts to $1,500
and which is held by the Robinson
estate. What is more the building
has been condemned and once the
congregation really owns It, repairs
must be made Immediately.
HiVB LBN IE If T LANDLORD.
Despite the failure to pay any
thing on the mortgage, the congre
gation has been allowed to retain
the church property all this time and
now that the effort is being made,
It is understood that the owners of
the mortgage will cut down the
amount by several hundreds of dol
lars so that It can be obliterated the
With aid such as this, Mrs. Gar
nett expressed the hope today that
not only the debt might be cleared
but that there would be a balance
left over with which to repair the
church. This Is not at all beyond
the realm of possibility if the peo
ple of the city can be brought to
see the good that would come from
TELLS OF NEED.
In conversing today about her
mission here, Mrs. Garnett said.
"We colored people do not want to
lose our church for without it we
would b'e in terrible condition. Un
less we are upheld by religion, our
race is prone to fall to temptation
and there are plenty of temptations
rampant now. Why scarcely a day
pasKes but what some young girl
gets into trouble. There are black
sheep In every race of course but
many of the colored girls who lead '
immoral lives would not be where
they are were there better facilities
for teaching and practicing religion.
The whites of this city can do a
wonderful -work In uplifting the col
ored people here if they are so mind
ed and we believe that they are. If
