ENTERTAIN WIVES AT
The Ministerial Alliance launched
what it is hoped will be an annual
affair Monday afternoon at the North
Side Y. W. C. A., when they enter
tained their wives at a dinner. About
25 persons were in attendance.
The idea was suggested by the Rev.
Mr. Brewer, pastor of Allen chapel,
of the South Side, at a recent meet
ing of the alliance, that he thought it
would make for good fellowship and
acquaintanceship, if an annual din
ner for the ministers and their wives
could be held some time during the
week of Christmas. The idea was
readily adopted and a committee, con
sisting of the Rev. Messrs. Brewer,
Trusty, and Hamlett, was appointed
to arrange for the dinner and to in
terest as many ministers as possible.
The committee arranged for the din
ner at the “Y” and it was served by
the health-education committee. It
was some dinner! Turkey and all the
After doing justice to the dinner
an interesting program of brief ad
dresses and music was given. The
Rev. John Albert Williams was select
ed to serve as toastmaster.
Among the numbers was a humor
ous reading by Mrs. Brewer; a brief
paper by Mrs. Fort; short talks by
Mrs. E. H. McDonald, Mrs. McGee,
Mrs. Williams, Mrs. Trusty, all of
whom were models for their husbands
in brevity of speech, but whether
their reverend spouses will take the
hint and profit by the example set
in their sermons and speeches here
after, is open to question. Some did
not profit by the example when they
in turn were called upon by the toast
master to speak their speech. Among
the men called on were the Rev
Messrs. Burckhardt, Grant, Trusty,
Story, McDonald, Fort and Brewer.
While each speech was good, some
short, some longer, the best speech
by the men, in the judgment of most,
was that by Rev. E. H. McDonald,
and the best story was by Rev. Mr.
Brewer. Musical numbers were con
tributed by Miss Frances Trusty and
by Miss Lucy May Stamms. The
benediction was pronounced by the
Rev. L. M. Hamlett.
It was voted by all present a very
delightful affair, and heralded as
marking a new epoch among the min
isterial forces of our race in the city.

TINKHAM ADDRESS TO
N. A. A. C. P. WILL SOUND
New York, N. Y.—The address to
be delivered on January 8, by Repre
sentative George Holden Tinkham of
Massachusetts before the annual
meeting of the National Association
for the Advancement of Colored Peo
pie, will sound a political keynote vi
tal to the Negro’s immediate future
in the United States, according to
James Weldon Johnson, secretary of
“Mr. Tinkham has raised in con
gress the issue of the Negro’s vote,” I
said Mr. Johnson, “and of Southern
representation. He has based this is
sue squarely upon the fourteenth
amendment and he contends that the
Negro must be permitted to vote on
the same conditions as all other citi
zens or Southern representation in
congress must be reduced in accord
ance with the provisions of the four
“Mr. Tinkham has long been cham
pioning this measure but never be
fore has the time been so opportune
for pushing it. The South is today
clamoring for the complete enforce
ment of the eighteenth amendment,
while it ignores and nullifies the
fourteenth and fifteenth amend
“Great sections of the East and
West are pointing out this inconsis
tency of the South, and stating that
if the eighteenth amendment is to be
enforced upon them, there is no good
reason why the fourteenth and fif
teenth amendments should not be en
forced throughout the South. The
Southern leaders and politicians are
thereby placed in a very embarrass
ing position which they have them
selves brought about.
“The N. A. A. C. P. feels it is
extremely fortunate in being able to
offer Mr. Tinkham its rostrum to
place his views and this issue before
the citizens of New York and the

GUNMAN GETS CHAIR;
EMPLOYER GETS 5 YEARS
La Grange, Tex., Dec. 30—When
his employer as a gunman finally
broke down and confessed that she
paid Pete Banks, Negro, a sum of
money to slay her husband, C. P.
Jones, Southern Pacific agent, he
was sentenced to death in the elec
tric chair. Mrs. Ella Jones testified
that she hired Banks to commit the
A fifty-five year sentence imposed
on Mrs. Jones, was reduced to five
by a former governor of Texas. Citi
zens of La Grange think that an ef
fort should be made to commute
Banks’ sentence to life imprisonment.
Leading and influential white citizens
think that the Negro was unduly in
fluenced by the white woman to com
mit the crime and have taken steps
to have the condemned man’s sen
tence commuted to life imprisonment.
