In the discussion of the race
question many of the southern
papers take special delight in put-
ting foward the fear of Negro domi-
nation and social equality as the
basis of their hostility to according
the Negro equal civil and political
rights under the law. No sane man
white 01 black believes any such
nonsense and the Commercial-Ap-
peal of Memphis a strong Demo-
cratic journal knocks the bottom
out of the social equality bug-bear
in these words. "As a matter of
fact, there is no such thing as social
equality on the face of the earth.
There is not among the members
of the colored race, and there is not

Among other items of a three
years pastorate of one of the white
Baptist churches of this city appear
3.018 pastoral visits. Tnis recalls
the fact that at a meeting of colored
Baptist pastors not long since it
.vas discovered that only a very few
f those present made any pastoral
visits at all. It is evident that the
matter of making purely pastoral
calls like tinny other kinds of relig-
work or services is growing in-
to disfavor and consequently tbt
work ol the Master i? r taid^d and
embarrassed. There needs to be a

particular and we are sure that
would result in the spiritual gro'vtl.
of the churches.
This is the true cont ention aud ii

It is certainly very gratifying to
note the deep and growing interest
which the good people of this city
are showing in the movement te
suppress vice and crime and to im-
prove the condition of our people
in this city. The meetings are biing
well attended and the good people
are deeply concerned in the move*
meat. Men of every calling are be-
ing aroused as never before and
great good is being done. Public
sentiment is being aroused and
beads of families are seeing the
problem in a new light and are
allying themselves with the work of
saving the young people and point-
ing them to highei ideals of life.
ThU work appeals to every mm
who wants to see the best citizen-
ship developed and he sbolud not
be slow in placing himself where
hi* influence for good will be felt.

price are hardly proper champ.ons
for those principles. The disposi
tion to patronise Negroes in busi-
ness is growing every day and under
proper conditions it will be a source
of gnat benefit to the race but it

The people who care anything about
persons who pass away will go to
the home and see them ?f they wish
to look upon them as they lay clasp-

vices at a funeral are always, or at
least ought to be solemn. The in-
fluences axerted upon the living
should be solemnized, and the peo-
ple should be sent away in a deep-
ly meditative mood. Marching

we have spoken through the col-

urgent we have bot had the time to

the various Baptist organs in which
we have been so deeply intersted.
