FRIDAY. APRIL 10, 1903. 

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' the members of the white 
race, or the red race, or the   ellow 
race, or the brown race. As Pope 
puts it: "Some are and must be 

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 
rn to the old land unrks in this 
particular and we are sure that 
would result in the spiritual gro'vtl. 
of the churches. 

This is the true cont ention aud ii 

the south could be 
from th«- 
ot »he question it could 
easily aud satisfactorily ad- 

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. 
The Law and Order Alliance is a 
long felt want and offers a grand 
opportunity for tee united eflort of 
all good citizens in improving con- 
eof this 

It is all right to patronize Negro 
business enterprises and no reason- 
able man can object to this being 
done under just and equitable busi- 
new principles, bnt members of the 

with the 

pl..y men of that race regularly 
when they could employ colored 
men of equal ability at the same 
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 
will hardly ewer be wise and neces- 
sary for every Negro to spend every 
cat he earns with members of the V 
race whether it is to his personal Bot

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- 
ed in death's icy arms. The ser- 
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 
around the room to view the body 
after the services have been held 
destroys the solemnity of the oc- 
cision, and turns it into mere 
sightseeing. This custom in Au-

" This chapter treats mainly ol our 
poll tea I duties," as Hodge says: 
First Paul enforces the duties due 
to civil magistrates, and then 10 
obligations in view of their civil 
and social relations generally. Here 
Christians find their duties as citi- 
zens laid down and enforced, 
There never was a time when study 
of this chapter was more needed. 

"Owe no man anything but H 
love one another."— Discharge all 
your obligation in every relation of 
life. Bnt do your best, and yon 
cannot discharge tbe obligation of 
love. We will always owe that 
The more active love is, the more 
it finds to do, its debt is undying. 
In those days, when love is dying 
oat ol so- many of the relations of 
hie, we need to be reminded of 
these f-cts. The love of employ- 
ers and employees is about dead. 
Contrast the feeling of old servants 

with the feeling between labor and 
capital! In so many of our public 
relation we need to be reminded of 

duties without love. Love is the 
root from which obedience of the 
law springs. He who loves God 
will strive to please and glorify him, 
a his utmost to keep his 
Any love which 
prove itself thus is not 
love but lip service, whether it 
love to God ot men. 

The apostle proceeds to prove 
his statement that love is feifilling

ference in every pleasing way to

sponsibilities, but the best of them 
need further awakening, 

'For now is the salvation 
than when we believea.' , — P»u\ 
longed to be saved from the body 
this death, to be complete in 
Him. He calls the final freeing 
from sin, from the war in his mem 
bers, which warred with the law in 
his spirit, from the old Adam whose 
presence made it still necessary 
that he should crucify bis flesh. 
That time was soon coming in 

h— it 
they believed. 

" The night is far spent, the day 
is at hand." — The time of th 

warfare was short; the night of life 
will soon ha over, and then comei 
the brightness of the eternal day. 
What matter hardships and crosses 
end is so 

of the work

introduction into the purity and 
blessedness of heaven. Eternity is 
just at hand, is the solemn consid-
