The fourth annual meeting oi the Na
tionar Business League was held here
during last week Wednesday Thursday
and Friday August 19 20 auQ21 The
most representative gathering of Negroes
ever assembled in this country has been
bequests i of the good people of this city
The delegates oame with enthusiasm
mid brdught with them a hopefulness
whiob has been com 1uulcted to alt wbo
u ave come in contact with them
The meeting was held in the Hall of
the House of representatives State Cap
itol i Building under circumstances of
the snout favorable and satisfactory char
actor The attendance was the largest in
history of the League and what is more
iuipirtant L the men who composed It and
who have ben btre are of that strong
sturdy character to be found thionRb
int the country interesUd in the effort
to build up the Negro people The ad
dresses have been strong and practical
ones and have been both interesting
and instructive
It is the general cobrwnsus of opinion
that the League baa more than vindicat
ed the wisdom of its organization and
nan t proved tself worthy thecopfldenoe
I md support of the substantial masses of r
the race
The Initial session was mado doubly
suspicions not only through the high I
character of those assembled but as Well r
as by the addn ssesqf welcome delivered I
by the Mnyorelrct of the city the Presi
dent of the Chamber of Commerce and I
by the President of the Retail Merchants
Each of these gentlemen spoke In his
official capacity and in a vein not pat
ronizing but manly courageous and
helpful There could be no di nbt of the
ringing note of sincerely in what they
bad to say There welcome was no less
nearly than that extended on behalf of I
the various Negro Organization of the
cIty Every session of the Lrague was
attended by great Cowds of perrons
white and blackwho throng d not only
the ball where the meetings were held
but the lobby and corrjdors leading
the hall as welL
Of especial interest was the disposi
tion manifested by the NafhUHe news
papers to prove their concern In the
meeting It was a remarkable fact that
the Nashville newspapers the Nashville I
Banner the Nashville American and the
Nashville News carried from six to
eight columns of matter during each days
session and their reports were courteous
respectful and enthusiastic No such
news oervioe has ever been given any
Negro gathering in the country
Easily of coune and to be expected I
Booker T Washington he Presideatof
the League was the crntr of attrac
tion It has been worth much to note
that the substantial elements of the
race are so thoroughly in accord with
this man Ou the evening of the First I
session as a special mark of distinction
Dr B C Morris President of the Na
tional Baptist Convention the largest
organization of Negroes Jn the country
and himself a man of large business
interests offered a motion suspending
the rules of the League and reelecting I
I Mr Washington president for another
I year The motion was warmly second
ed by Hon J C Napier of Nashville
hvilleland I
and Mr S Laing Williams of Chicago p
Themdtlonwas unanimously carried I
by a rising Vote and with a whoop
As a further mark of their admira
tion for Mr Washington the rules
were again suspended on the last days
session when life members were en
rolling and Mr Washington made a
life member of the League without I
paying the fee of twentY five dollars
required of others j
The Committee on Resolutions re
poxted through T Thomas Fortun of
New Jersey for the commit b as
strong a statement of the Negros rela
tion to business development and an
appeal to further development along
these lines as his ever been printed
The resolutions are too long to be print
ed here but the following extract will
give some indication of their strong
forceful tenor
We feel that the objects ot the
league as enunciated at tbo initial I
meeting at Boston four years ago are
being aooomplishrd to the entire sat
isfaction of the founders off the organ L
ization and the very general advan
tage of the Negro race everywhere in
the possibilities for substantial pro
gress of tbe people Along l lines qt iqdua

marked a f eatureof the oltizenahlp of
the roppbllo and haye done so luttph
for the general ttdyancement and hip I

the world who are itriviaf trnaUy

let In the markets of the worlfl for itieir
surplus production
uln this splendid rivalry worldwide
In Its scope the National Negro Busi
ness League feels that it Is a factor for
good working In sympathetic and help
ful harmony with the other greatt
commerofal agencies of the republic
in whoa prosperity and glory all alike
have patriotic pride
Many strong men have beep in at
tendance upon thi convention ands
fell have borne their part in the delib
erations and in tmaking tbe League a
strong force in helping the race
Among others may be mentioned the
thirty strong men who appeared on
the pogram and whose names and
subjects have been printed in the va
rious newspapers of the country In
