Some of our over zealous breth 1
ran who are afraid that the mission 1
ary work in tho state will swallow
> up the educational work are can 1
vassing the state seeking to have
every district meeting they can in i
I fluence to do so pass condemnator
resolutions against the State Execu
tive Board and the Womens Mis
sionary Convention If our educa
tional work has come to the pass
where it must resort to such under
hand 3 methods as these to maintain
its existance then it deserves to
p rish The Torch Light
This is an unjust reflection upon
the representative of the education
al work who usually attends the As
sociational and conventional meet
ings in this stats and is absolutely l
untrue afar as the instnuation is
meant to apply to him It is a sur
prise that the Torch Light usually
fair just and truthful should resort l
to this old method of misrepresen
tit ion surmising and impuguing of r
the motives of his brethren in order
to gratify his spleen and opposition
The Educational work fs fostered I
by the General Association as well I
as the Missionary workand will be
properly cared for as it may deserv
and as the Association has the
means Some associations have
passed resolutions disapproving of f
the New Womens Missionary Con
vention but in no case has it been
done at the suggestion or solicita
A c tion of any representative of the
Educational work but is i rather th e
y outgrowth of the very strong hostil 1
ity in the state toward the new
movement and of this the editor of f
the Torah Light is better informed J
than he pretends to be informedI I
I MOB violence whether in Alaba
ma or in Delaware is wrong and
the character of the crime or the
color of the criminal should neither
condone or justify lynching It is i 5
folly to talk about a law that would
punish one clasa of criminals in a
specific way for a certain offense
and another class of criminals in i L
another way for the same crime
There ma > be many device3 of mak
iug 1t 1 vs = ipply in a peculiar and
parti il w y hht no law making
power in il ia country would dare
pass a law stating in plain words its i
purpose to punish offenders accord
ing to color instead of according to i
f the ofiense committedand we have i
no respect for the minister who
could endorse such a suggestion
The better class of 1 = roes always i
regret and denounce the outrages i
which form the excuse for lynching
but they have no more personal 1
knowledge of the purpose to com
in t these crimes by Negroes than t
iKc > the good white citizeus have of
the crimes committed by white
criminals and are no more able to i
t c 4 prevent them The better class of
1colored 1 people do separate them
selves from the criminal class and
0 have no means for protecting them
becnuse they do not come in co mn
l tact with them and it is unjust to
f charge either the responsibility of
t the crime or the failure of punish
f ment to this cause It is i evident
l that the mob spirit ts on the in
t crefse and it coes not stop with the
1f lynching of Ne ono
k IY
ally finds a white victim and the I
nnmber will increase unless an
honest and effective effort is made I
to create a strong and vigorous I
sentinrent in every community in
favor f of law and order
The suggestion to have all money
collected at or sent to the district
Associations and Conventions for
j state work be sent to the General
Association instead of being paid to
the representatives of these enter
prises is no doubt made m good
iaith but such a change is unwise
and would work to the injury of the
very enterprise which it is intended
to help The only good to be ac
complish would be the enlargement
ot the contributions to the General
Associations but would not add one
cent to the support of the Educa
tional or Missionary work and per
haps in the change both enterpris
es would be denied the immediate
1use of the money collected which
in some cases where these bodies
meet after the meeting of the Gen
eral Association would be material 1
as in other cases the money would
be held in the hands of treasm icS i or
corresponding messengers for near
ly a year This money would uot
help these bodies any as they could
not use it and then the records of f
the Boards would not show a cent
received from these bodies for the
educational or missionary work Y
as the General Association would be
sscredited with the paympnt in the
aggregate with this money The
logical result of this change would
be that churches would follow the
example of the associations and re
tain the money raisec for Educa
tional and Missionarv work untill 1
the General Association and in this
way the idea of sending all money r
to that body would be encouraged I
isand there would be no money re
ceived for the Educatianal or Mis
sionary work during the year
rtHowever conscientious the promo
ters of this movement may be it i is
ofvery evident that the Missionary
erand Educational work would suffer
if tne plan should be adopted and
since nothing is to be gained the
11plan should be abandoned
