3 HOT SHOT FOR MR. ROOSEVELT. Be. W,B. Cpr Criticises the - WiC -t for His Course Toward South On the Negro Question. Moral Standards of the South Will Be Made By Public Senti ment In th South and Not by Presidential Dictum. President Roosevelt's appointment of negroes to office in tbe South, and his attempt to place theiu upon an equality socially with tbe southern people, was the subiectof strong criticism by Rev VV. B. Capers Sunday morning, during his sermon at the Episcopal church. Mr. Capers took for his text Mat thew, Srt-52: "Put tip thy sword iain into its dace, for all they who live bv the sword shall perish by the Mvord. " The trend of the minister's remarks was that uiitfbt does not make riizht Reforms (vainly so-called, ) he aid, conceived in the ambitious de Micros of bad met, born at the incep tion of strife, and nurtured upon the poils and plunder of a people, are but short lived in their triumphs and are most nernicious in their influence, and stand in sickening contrast to th reforms t&r which Christ strove, which were nermanent in their nature anl universally beneficial in their influ ence. In other words, ClKist sought to reform the world, to reform the in dividual by conviction, and not by vhvsical and external force. Charles the Great arove thousands of barbarians into the baptismal waters at the noint of the sword, but that did not make them christians. The sneaner then turned his atten tion to the arbitrary course President Roosevelt is rursuing in his attempt to enforce negro officials on the bouth and have tbe negro recognized socially, which he is doing, said the minister, not only in violation of that principle of diplomacy which causes the with drawal of a representative from one country to another, when that repre sentative is distasteful to the people among whom he is sent, but is persist ing in it over the protests of the citi zeus, the legislatures, the national representatives ana tne best element of his own party in the states wherd lie in inatrinir his appointments. "Wo may be coerced into accepting the neero officials. " said Mr. Capers "but bv thus allying himself with the moot vicious elements of his party, he vaill siinulv realize tne force of another scriptural maxim, a handmai den to our text : 'with what measure vou meet it out. it shall be measured to von aain. ' The principle in the life of the municipality and in the life of the individual is the le; the meal standards of our cooi nunity are going to be, not what we ma a them by the enacting of law, but wt : the public sentiment of this comm ity be; a they shall be. If you want a community which practices temperance, soberness and chastity, public sentiment must create a standard : and if laws are framed and enacted to minimrze moral corruption public sentiment most be baei of those laws, or else the laws ud officers of the law are alike power less to achieve the slightest success Titus every department of our life be purified and is to lifted, up not by the drafting and ertactingjof laws, 'not by power, or by might, .but by my spirit, saith the Lord.'

Bob Moormaa, writing from Wash ington to the Nashville American, says: "President Roosevelt told a number of the White House callers today that he whs deeply surprised that criticism had resulted on acowuul of the presence of negroes at the judiciary reception the other night. He said that it had been the custom to invite these negi officials at otner Rimilar receptions. It is true, he said, that their names did not anoesr on trie official an nouncement of Invited guests, but this rlso was in accorda&ce with custon The President not only expressed stir n dee but he evidenced anger at the " ... . .

NANNIE ELIZABETH WILSON, 40 South Ninth Street, Columbus, Ohio. Historian R. E. Lee Chapter, U. D. C. For the purpose of removing doubt from the minds of many persons, who are, or mar be, under the impression that the pasenge of the Adams bill will kill the whiskey traffic in all towns of 5,01)0 inhabitants or nnder. The tier aid publishes below the four mile ex tension law of le99, and -the Adams act, which was passed by the senate Th rsdav. It will be seen by a read ing of these facts that the Adam bill does not knojk whiskey out of towrs of 5,000 population or under, but simply gives the citizens of such towns an opportunity, or the right, to vote on the propositionto expel whiskey. The proper procedure then, in f ase of the final enactment of the Adams bill, for the citizens of a .own of 5,000 inhabitants or under. would be Co call an election and put the question to a vote. In order to shew just what the Adams bill has done, we publish the act of 1899. and the amendment of it, which are as follows : FO0R MILE LAW OF 1899. . "Au act to amend section 2, cbaptt.' 167, of the acts of the General Assem bly of 1887, to prohibit the sale of intoxicating liquors as a beverage near any school-house, public oi private, where a school is kept, wbether the school be in session or not. "Section 1. Be it enacted by tne General Assembly of the State of Ten nessee. That section 2, chapter lbv, or the acts of the General Assembly of 1887, be amended so as to read as follows: ,'That this pot shall not ap ply to the sale of such liquors within the limits of any ircorporatea town, except hereafter incorporated, with population of not more than two thousand inhabitant? by the Federal census of 1890, or any other subsequent Federal census, nor to sales iupde by persons bavin? licenses to make the same at the dale of tbe passage of this act. during the time tor which such licenses were granted, nor to sales by manufacturers of such liqpors in wholesale packages or quantities. "Sec. 2. Be it further enacted That all laws or prrts of laws in con fJict with this aci be and the same are hereby repealed, and that this act taae ettect from ana atter its passage, tne public welfare requiring it." ACT AS AMENDED. The Adams bilf. passed Thursday, amends the act of 1899 as follows : "An act to amend section 1, chapter 221, of the acts of the General Assembly of 1899. entitled 'An act to amend section 2, chapter 167, of the acts of the General Astembly of 1887, to pronitnt tne sale of intoxicating liquors aj a bever age near any school-house, public or private, where a school is Kept, wheth er the school be in session or not, ' so as to extend the provisions of said chapter 167 of the acts of the General Assembly of 1887 to towns of not more than 5,000 innabitants hereafter incorporated.
