All hail to Eugene Kinele Jones,
ft-: years old on January 30. As

* HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU."
For a lifetime of effective and
devoted service to the fellow mem
bers of his race, for an example
of fine Americanism and good ci
fliKenship, wo doff our hats in com
plement to this eulterei gentleman.
For years Mr. Jones contributed
much of the energy which made the
National Leagu® for Urban Condi
tions the efficient agency that it
proved to be. Under his direction
it undertook the task of guiding
into tho best channels the great
flood of emigration which in recent
years has been running from South
to North. It sought and found jobs
for thousands; it pried open doors
to tho colored man which had al
ways been closed; it faced pre
judice and did much to delay it; it
helped tho colored man to see his
own faults and correct them; to
enter a new evironment and not
be overwhelmed by it.
Tho scie-nce of engineering lost
an able practitioner and a brilliant
scholar when Jones turned his back
on that profession to make service
•to his fellow man his life work. Per
haps if he hod been less a scholar
engineering still would have claim
ed him. For it was at the end of
the school year at Cornell during
the examination period, that he
decided to abandon his chosen ca
reer. His work for th® first year
had been of such caliber that he
had been exempted from the test
taking, and had time to cogitate on
thu future. His cogitations led to
tho decision which has meant so
much to the Negro people.
[ His parents were in comfortable
I cireuiw'tanees, his father was a
I professor of theology and his mot-j
i it v a musician and teacher of mu- j
j sic. He received a good elementary!
i education in northern schools, grad- j
! uated from Wgiuia Union Ciol
lego at Richmond, Virginia, and
I continued through to his master's !
! degrt’o at Cornell. His love for ma
I thematic* led him to the engineer
I ing college, but love of his race
i proved tho greater.
| All of which reminds one of
i tho word of our Lord, “THE
GREATEST AMOUNG YOU
SHALL BE THE SERVANT OK

Abraham Lincoln in a letter to
onu of his Illinois friends written;
August, 26, 186.'}, gave his answer
to northern critics of the Emanci
pation Proclamation. Here are a
couplu of the important jrara
graphs. Notice what he says about
Negro and white soldiers,
“I know as fully as one can know
tho opinions of others, that some
of tho commanders of our armies
in the field, who have given us |
our most important victories, be- (
lievo tho emancipation policy and
tho aid of colored troops constitute
tho heaviest blows yet dealt to the'
rebellion, and that at least one of!
theso important successes could not
have been achieved when it was j
but for "the aid of black soldiers.;
Among the commanders holding!
theso same views are some who
have never had any affinity with
what is called abolitionism, or with
republican party politics; but who
bold them purely as military opin
ion. I submit their opinion as be
ing entitled to some weight against
tho objection often urged that
emancipation an arming the blacks
aro unwise as military measures,
and were not adopted as such in
“You say you will not fight to
free Negroes. Some of them seem
willing to fight for you, but no mat
ter. Fight you then exclusively to
save tho union. I issued the pro
clamation on purpose to aid you
in saving the Union. Whenever you
shall have conquered all resistance
to the Union, if I shall urge you
to continue fighting, it will he an
apt time for you to declare that
you will not fight to free Negroes.
I thought that, in your struggle
for the Union, to whatever extent
tho Negroes should cease helping
tho'enemy, to that extent it weak
ened the enemy in his resistance to
you? Do you thing differently? I|
thought that whatever Negroes can
bo got to do as soldiers leaves
just s6 much less for white soldiers
to do in saving the Un'on. Does
it appear otherwise to you? Bu.
