NEGROES AND THE Y.M.C.A.
Work Done to Advance the Race I® tbe tutted Statet. George Foster Feabody has bought and presented to the Brooklyn Colored Young Men's Christian association a fine old mansion costing about JS.OOO. Evening educational classes for color voung men will be prominent in this association, which now has 250 mem bers pledged. Mr. Teabody has prom ised liberal aid in erecting a building for the colored association in his native dtv, Columbus, Ga., when it shall ha\e developed to require it. For years membership in many of the city and other associations has been open to ne groes, but very few of these young ©en avail themselves of the privilege. The associations find that to help col ored voung men special organizations are required, as for railroad men, sol diers, sailors, students and other groups of young men. In New York city, where almost no colored members were enrolled, an association ^as or ganized last year with 22o members, where the employment bureau, educa tional classes and dormitory are lead ing features. The classes were immedi ate'.y filled with negroes ambitious for self'improvement. The colored associa tions are growing, r.s the international committee has two field secretaries su pervising this movement. There are now twenty-eight in the cities and six tv-three in colleges, with O.C"A mem bers, but without employed secretaries in charge these are not very efficient. Five such men were added last year, mostly in northern cities, and three men are In preparation at the training school. Indianapolis has 25.000 negro young men. New York and Charleston 30.000 «aott. .-i"- «nd Fhiladelphia 40,uu0 each, Washington x-ow Orleans SO. 000 each and Baltimore Booker Washington says: "We must depend upon the Young Men's Chris tian association not only to rescue but to preserve the young manhood of my race. Every dollar put into this work for my race becomes an interest bear lag dollar. Money spent in this direc tion me£.ns a better voter and a better citizen." It is likely that a large de ve'.:pn.er.t of the Young Men's Chris tian association will take place among the colored men of the cities- For an encownen: fund of SoO.OOO for the s-nr-ervision of this colored work «:.•» has been subscribed by Een familiar with the work, and spe cial offer: is now being made by some cf tie best and wisest friends of the colored race to complete the amount. MORGAN'S LEVEE ATTIRE. rfecetl -aJ* Kinndif Ml **Turrerbred.*' "Say. where'll y* ever see de like of J. Pierpont Morgan?"' Chuck Connors asked a New York World reporter the other evening. Chuck was in the back room of the Old Tree in New York, leisurely sipping his mulligan and reeding the story of Mr. Morgan dining with King Edward VII., wiring bis lev-e dress. Sure. Morgan owns all tb' railroads and all th' ships," said Barney Flynn. **I know all about Morgan." Barney." corrected Chuck, "you're a good feller, but y' ain't wise to Mor gan. What does he do? Say, ships an' railroads ain't not'in' to the way he runs the king an' all th' Englishmen off their legs and puts them all away back. King Edward sends word for Morgan to come an' eat a big t*?ef stew wit* bim at Josy Choate's house—see? "Morgan jumps his yacht at Bring geezes or one o' dem Queer Ginny towns an' burns 'em up along the line to London. A wise fish from the king's bunch meets him at Cherry Gross— dat's like Cherry Hill here, see?—an' says, "Say, you gutter wear court dress, knee pants an' all them things.' "Does he faze Morgan? Why, de old man don't even give de wise geezer de laugh. He goes out to de biggest tailor in Lunnon. an' he says, 'Here, yous. git a court dress up fer me by de time de o'clock whistle blows or I'll putcba out o* business.' Well, de tailor knows Morgan, all right, so be produces de jeans. "An' Morgan? Him t' de dinner dat evenin' wit' his black satin knee pants an' black silk bicycle stockin's. tt"y not? Don't I remember de fuyst time I ever put on a w'ite shirt, how de col lar rivets near broke holes inter me neck? Sure. Any gent dat's a reel gent'l! always do de reel ting. An' Mor gan's a reel gent Knee pants an' bicy cle stockin's fer bis. "Suppose me an' him wuz golnter •par four rounds friendly, wouldn't be peel off fer de setto? Sure. An' w'en he's eatin' a tablehote wit' de king he puts on knee pants an' bicycle stockin's because d.i-y're all right. An' w'at's ©ore, he's got de regular good piano Itgs too. He's a turr^rbred."

Mediapolis, la., July 1.—Four hun 3red and forty men working nine hours In a driving rain moved both rails of :he Burlington and Western road on 125 miles of track and thus broke all records In converting a narrow into i broad gauge track. The event was witnessed by thousands of Iowans. who stood at every depot holding um arellas to protect themselves from the drenching downpour. Twenty-eight crews of sixteen men each, working an average of four miles each, accomplished the feat without the abandonment of any reg ular Sunday traffic and without any serious delay. Two hundred thousand spikes were driven. Each rail was moved ten and a quarter inches to a row of spikes previously driven in the ties. All save four spikes in the inside had been previously drawn, all those on the outside being undisturbed until their rails were lifted to their broader gauge. The work was parried on simultane ously on the iine from Ma&apolis to *Mv as Osk&loosa on tu? .. dropped the gangs four nufrs-j--,. Following the narrow gauge trains spe cials on the new broad gauge picked up the gangs and conveyed them to the starting point. All sidings were broadened at the same time. The men were all experienced track men of the Burlington and Western, and others borrowed from the Burling ton and Rock Island systems. Good Crops Now Assured. Denver.

Strictly speaking, the Increase applies to non-tonnage, schedules of all the constitutional companies. The increase was ordered by the executive board of the United States Steel cor poration after numarous conferences with the highest officials of the under lying concerns. The first men to profit by the increase will be the men of the Carnegie Steel company, who were working under a private scale. The next advance will come to the em* ployes of the American Steel and Wire plants. In the Pittsburg district something like 30.000 men will be entitled to the Increase. Chief among them will be the blast furnace workers, all day men. laborers and machinists. Men working under a private scale will be barred from the advance, as well as •"iners, coke workers, rod men and tune jS estimated that out of the totai ,,m. ployes of the corporation one-tun u them are paid on the tonnage basis.
