iness houses have discarded the devices
rather than pav the tax and the city
authorities hardly expect totalize front
over forty machines. TliaET number of
machines 'will yield an annual revenue

The action of the -city council in im
posing a tax upon: these machines, which
by an act of the last Legislature . were
tk-cl.-rred a gambling device. , ha caused
considerable discussion, locaHy. in which
the constitutionality of the act and" the
power of he city in -the premises is in
volved. -The city authorities rfignrc that
they are justified in levying the license,
The claim that the 'Ix-Rislative records
will show that the Salem City charter
which. empoTwers the city- council to levy
a tax on sucn devices, was approved on
February 15. ..iSoft, but inasmuch, as the
alleged emergency clause appended
thereto 'did' not. declare an emergncy to
exist, constitutionally it didjnot con
stitute an emergency clause and hence
the law did not become-operative until
'May 16th of the same year bf virtue of
the statute of limitation.' The bill de
claring the nicklc-in-the-slot machines
to Ik gambling devices was approved on
February ' 24th i and inasmuch as it in

after its approval, j In addition to the
fact that the slot machine bill is alleged
to have been irregularly passed, the city
authorities contend that the provisions
of Uie Salem (City charter bill -which
subsequently became operative, in effect
repealed the former, law. The entire
situation and the validity of the aneas
ures, hinges on iwhetber or not a spe
cial law passed by the Legislature re
peals and takes precedence over a gen

Queen Wilhelmina of ihe Nether
lands is not only sy mpathetic but orac
tkal. Taking her.MSUal afternoon drive
with one Of her military officer., she
saw in the wood at The Hagne two
children, one '8.' the other 10 years old
seated on a bench, cryinsr. i She asked
what was the matter- One of the chd
dren, still weeping, told her they had
lost their mother, and there was no
one to look after them. "Well, said
the Queen, "we must go and see your
father. The children, with much hes
tation. explained that they had, been
sent out by their father to beg. 2 The
Queen, after considering a moment
ordered the coachman to take them to
an asylum, : and walked back to the
palace with the officer.
Naknt has just trad a vis4 troai an
intelligent and wefl equipptd represen
tative of the colored" race, who spoke
at the First Presbyterian church in this
city or Sunday ; evening ? last. ' ProL
Gilchrist Stewart.' to whom reference
is made, is a graduate of the instltu1
t ion at Tuskegee. Alabama, under the
direction of Booker T.' Vasliingtjn.
This, is the greatest institution, in this
county or elsewhere for .the training o
the colored youth for industrial call
mgs. rloe mstitutron now has an at
tendance, of 2000, and it . is equipped
with seventy-two buijiiings, though
was started m a log cabin ten ! years
ago, wit a only .twenty students. Mr,
Washington 'has taken bold of the edl
ttcation of the colored boys and girls
of the South in a rationa-l manner. He
has nnd'ertaken to tt-aclr them trades.
by which t'hey may become useful and
imkpcnlent factors in the development
of ihe iowth. 'Me saw that th:s was
the way .to work out the race problem.
There is no race problem in the farm-
ma settlements ot any part' 01 tne
country occupkd by the Hungarians
the Germans. French or Norwegians,
for instance, because these people ac
quire property,; pursue imkpendtnl av
ocahons. and1 become , a part ot tuc
progressive development j of the differ
ent communities, 'ror this Mr. wasn-
insrton is equipoimi and pronosuiK to
euip the youtvg jnen and. women of
t ho colored race of the f South. And,
seeing that he is doing his work along
practical lime?, the philanthropists and
humanitarians of the North are help
ing him, and propose to help him- fur
ther. An 1 endowment fund, of $500,000
s now being subscribed for the Tuske-
goe institution, beinK headed wnh $50,-
000 by tEx-PresWent Gro-er Cleveland.
Prof. Stewart says it is not the idea
at Tuskegee to secure social equality
for the colored people. Tliey are will
ing to ride in "Jim' Crow" cars, to a;
tend the separate sclniols pro-ided in
the Sottb for .the blacks, ami to be
apart from the- wMte race in society
cencTallv: but tleir idea is to s.ccure
equality in imlustnal matters by ren
dering the blacks industrious, thrifty,
and therefore ustui in the industrial
and business life f f that section.
"There is no eolor Kne in industry,
he says, "and none in property and
wea-k-h. The color of the man witn a
lank deposit ij not objected to. ; His
checks are good, and bis custom is
sought after. ; .: : I '- -i-'i' -:. -; 1
Prof. Stewart'is himself a sample of
what may be expected 01 the. pew idea
of industrial education. He is ant if
thority on dairying- After 'graduating
at Tuskegee he worked1 for a year for
Governor Hoard, of Wisconsin, having
charge of one of his creameries a part
of the time. He then went to Madi
son and was graduated from the state
dairy school, after which he taught a
year at Tuskegee, taring charge of the
dairy department. Then he taught fori
a. year at the state dairy school of!
South Dakota. He has just returned

The address of Prof. Gilchris Stew
art, the notetl negro dairy scientist and
orator iof the Tuskegte Normal and
Industrie School, ot Alabama, at the
-nst rl ifebyterian cburch on S'tcday
evtrjng; was well attend! and listen
ed to with marked interest. The subr
ject, -The Negro ProbUnn an.1 Cbris
t.Educatiorv among the Negroes oi
the Sooth," was treated . in a very plain
and practical rnamieT. Th
open:d;;wn a huih-M.tkas HustTa:iDn-oi
in iac tnat htn address wou4 be "tmi-
prompto. He? said that, Industrial edu-
catronihaJ bn a success among the
ncgroc A the South, so far as the
work; pf the Tuskfgce institution was
concerned. Booker- T Washington
opened this ;nstrtutkn. in a log cabin
ten years ago, with twenty students.
Now! it has 2000 students and seventv-
two buddings. The brick for the struc
tures Mas made by the students there,
the lumber sawed by them, the car
penter : work Kne by tfctem. and the
pairrfirig perirnut. and all the other
work Itinder ths darectkr of their tu
tors.; ; They make butter and cheee.
anL; fjhoes and clothing, and various
ther(useiul arficles. What is more
important, they learn how to make
litems and to teach their i people at
homeiialso in the- same lines. ;
llwif. Stewart said: "There is no
color: line to industry, poverty and
wealthy If a mart has a bank account
he iaJ respectod. no matter what the
shade! of his skin." He went on to say
that what the Tnskegvei institution's
CTKteajroTing to do is to furtwsh the
tutbs of the black race wrtlr an equip-
mentfiof brain arxl hamf that will, give
them etjual oipLrtunity with their white
bro4hirs. 'i he . idea is not tv make
then social equals; they are1 willing to
rid.a (n the "Jim , Crow" cars, to have
theirithndren attend schools apart from
those' of the white children, and to be
separate in vcial life- But if the black
man can learn something that wdl
make him a factor in the industrial
cVxrlopment of the South, then he wilt
fin a useful place and the race qujeston
will fbe settltd. He said thvre was n.j
race! que it ion heard of in the Sections
of Uks country largely sctt'kd by the
Norwutgiants. tine uermans, or the Itun
trarians. This is from the' fact that
these peoples acquire property, have in
dependent avocations and pecome use
ful factors in the industrial and nusiness
lifd ha the commnnitles in which , they
settle. Th'is is what is m-eded. for;thc
blaclcs. . He illustrated the pcfint by
leterring to an old negro in the South,
withl several brick buildintr and a bank
account, who, when he went to make
his fdeposit, causrxr he banker to say.
tliat the , rich old darkey came wearer
maLimr him say. "Mister" than i any

Those of the former class, for the most

that, though mild, it will be firras and,
