Shiloh Baptist Chnrch .of Wil li tniston. Oct. 25 and 26 was 1111 doubtedly one of the most interest ing meetings ever held among the colored people of Martin County. It was the "second meeting of its kind held at Willi.tm-.ton, and was by far, the more important of the two. There were, in this conven tion, prominent representatives from every section of the county, who played 110 small part in mak ing the convention a successt The lectures given by the vari ous appointed speakers seemed to have awakened a very great lute - est. One of the objectr of the conven tion is to bring about more Christ ian nnity among the different de nominations. Non Unity has for many years been the means of keeping the race divided: and a race divided is a hin drance to other races, and itself cannot prosper in any large degree. Every denomination seems to stand alone as if it were a world of its own, and cares nothing whatever abont the others welfare. Tins is not the true Christian spirit; and still I find it more or less true in many sections oi the south where I have chanced to travel. Where this spirit exists there are a great many denominational prejudice. The Interdenominational move ment will in a large degree remedy this evil. I do not mean that one should bold an attachment to the church in general, "but that church whose doctrines forms methods and spirit ate most nearly iu accord with his own views and best adap ted to promote his own growth in grace. And to that church he should ever maintain an earnest whole souled devotion, and at the same time be cordial and brother ly to all other christian bodies. When one observes all of these things he finds himself doing the whole duty of man. I thank God that the negro is getting to the point in his history where he is ceasing to sleep and slumber when the time comes to consider matters pertaining to the better development of mind and character. The southern negro has seen his mistake in rushing into politics at the close of the civil war when he was both unintelligent and without a material foundation and therefore incompetent to take part in in this great government. The negro has made great prog ress within the last 40 years. Ac cording to the census, the colored of this country own and pay taxes upon about >300,000,000 worth of property and have blotted out over 50 percent of the illiteracy. Hul to my mind it is still wise for the negro as a race to stay out of the political world. If tbe negro instead of voting for party, bad voted and stood more firmly for principle his con dition in many instances would bave been by far better in the South they are to day. ' We often speak of our rights as laid down in the constitution of tbe United States. Now, Ido not ask the negro to give up any right that is granted to him in the constitution of the United States, but it does seem to me that our duties are more impor tant than our rights. If we do our duty faithfully and earnestly in spite of tbe disadvantages that come sooner or later, the rights will take care of themselves. Let us not find so much fault with the white people who live next door to ns. Many of them I find, are ever willing and ready to help the negro who proves him self worthy. Great honor is dne the white people of tbe south who have put forth earnest efiorts to establish and maintain schools for the educa tion of tbe negro race. I cannot for a moment forget the many favor* which so matiy .of the good white people in this ' country have done the negro. M I WILLIAM STON, N. C, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 1.1905. Neither can 1 believe that the white man who lives next door to me is mv worst enemy, hecau-e of the wsn v hindrances which the un worthy class of our race has ] brought upon the honest an I in dustrious colored man who ear nestly endeavors 6 promote the interest of his race, and make the most of life. We ticnl to have our people ed ucated. Ido not uie.in au educa tion that leads away from work, but that education which leads to work. The costliest crop of anv community isthecropof ignorance. The greatest hindrance to a state is its vast amount of ignorant cit izens. The education of mind alone will not make a good citizen, but it is equally true that we cannot have the best cittz 11 without the educa tion of mitul. ° He must be educa ted 111 heart and mind. In order to not be a hindrance to other races, and to the prosperi ty of this great government, the negro must get education, uiorali ty and industry. He must have intelligence, clean living and the power to do earnestly and well whatever good work his hands tiud to do To encourage education and in dustry, to promote union, to cher ish rehgous peace, to foster the kingdom of Christ, to love oui country and ol>ey her laws. These should be our honest pur poses. J. Heury Johnson Kveretts, N. C. A until is never much ne.uu heaven than wheu he makes a child happy.
