AMERICA'S WAR-SPIRIT OF TO-DAY We ask of Thee a greater strength, Oh God! Staggering beneath the burdens that we bear Coureageously against a hellish squad— Demons and fiends who set their treacherous lair To net tlie world, that it would in time de spair In servile fear beneath the Prussian rod. I know Thou wilt not fail us now, Oh God. When darkness hovers o'er land and sea. And Prussia fights to crush Democracy Firmly beneath her black ungodly tread, And count as naught the bravery of our dead. Thou wilt not fail us now when hellish deeds Seek in their lustful prey the harmless lives Of women and children for whom mercy pleads, Vainly to Prussia's god who lordly thrives, Beastly upon his prey in greed and lust. We will fight on until we shall have thrust Death's fatal sabre thro' his ruthless side; Commanding fate his destiny shall guide Him thro' the ominous realms of vale and dell, Where his Satanic sins shall rise pell-mell In maddening fury, an insurgent tide, To curse and ho...

TOWN TOPICS One day last week J. 11. Ryan, editor of The (Tacoma) Forum was in Seattle and chatted with old friends and among the many things of interest lie talked of, he Rave it out that the colored citizens of his berg were making preparations to give Alex Pantagea a short touch of high court life for his persistent color discrimination in his thea tres in Tacoma. All of which reminds the writer that one Alex Pantagea does the self same thing in Seattle and it would be ;i long step in the right direction if the Seattle Branch of the National Association For the Advancement of Colored People would lend the Tacoma colored citizens a helping hand in giving this Mr. Alex a court trial to see if he has the legal right to discriminate against American citizens as he is daily doing wherever he has a show house.

wholly satisfied with Levy's coupe in Bell ing his property to the Mt. Zion Baptist church at a sacrifice, just to get even with him, and now he plans to sell his property to a colored family, if only one can be found that has sufficient cash. As has been previously said, "its an ill wind that blows no one good," and if Long John wants to dispose of his property at a sacrifice, its a good buy and some colored family would do well to pick it up. Speaking about the number of colored men doing business in Seattle, one of the speakers at 'the meeting last Sunday even ing named the following partial list of firms that invites colored patronage: Attorneys—Andrew R.

A REGULAR CAMOUFLAGER On ;i Mississipi plantation, forty miles from Nowhere, was an African Methodist Episcopal church, built of round pine poles. with an inch board Moor and the whole cov ered with four foot clapboards. It was not intended for an exclusive, summer meeting house, hut that was about the only season of the year that services could be held in it owing to its rather open condition, and I hen Rgain, it kinder fitted in with the com munity which had an over-supply of sum mer Christiana and winter devils. Under this church edifice the lio^s of the planta tion spent their winter nights, which left it pretty well stocked with fieas that be ciipe very numerous in summer, and they never lost an opportunity of coveringl with the Lord's elect on Sundays, when they as sembled for worship. So annoying to tbe congregation did these little pests become that, the parson sent word a week ahead. that it he (lets had to be driven out or he would have to preach under an accommo dating sh...

A CONCRETE VILLAGE BUILT OF SLABS BY A DERRICK The house cast solidly of concrete in one piece, poured into a mold like cast metal, has not materialized commercially. But con crete houses cast in pieces and then assem bled are apparently both practical and in expensive. This method of building in "units" has been employed for some time to erect large industrial structures, but it is now being used, it is asserted, for the first time in a group of dwellings in Youngs town, Ohio. We quote from a descriptive article in The Engineering News-Record (New York), according to which the ex pense of moving and handling the slabs is more than offset by reduction in the cost of forms and the possibility of operating the concrete-plant continuously. Says the writer: "Precast slabs, poured in a yard and erected by a traveler, are being used for the first time in this country to construct dwell ing houses. The so-called unit method of concrete construction ... is being suc cessfully applied to the...

PROF. KELLY MILLER Bristling with patriotism, path os and profoundly was the lec ture of Prof. Kelly Miller last Wednesday evening in Seattle. What man. woman or child, who listened with rapt attention to every word and sylable that lie uttered from his first to his last, who were not convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that, in the language of the little colored boy of one of the southern states, when asked by a white man from the North who was visiting in the South, soon after the close of the Great Civil War, what message he had to send to his white friends of the North, laconically replied, "Tellum wes risin." Yes each and every one of us under the sound of his voice felt that we had risen to a tenfold greater height than that we had ever be fore enjoyed. His burning words of patriotism set our souls on lire and as one man we rose and from the depths of our heart shouted to our country's call for volunteers to fight for freedom. "here am I, send me, send me." More eloquent men h...

TILLMAN HAS AN ADVOCATE lii Another column hereof we take th-3 stand that there waa nothing good in Ben jatnin R, Tillman, and if there were, it never came out. but along comes Scott Bone, editor of the P.-1., and pens out an eulogy on his Pitchfork Nibbs that made of him. while in the height of his fame, an angel without wings. Whoever sees or saw good in Tillman, from our viewpoint, is either crazy or of a like mentality as was Tillman. We nor no one else believes for a single minute that Scott Bone is crazy, yea, verily, he is not, and not being crazy lie must share the revolutionary ideas of Tillman, and this we do not doubt for a wholly second, if reports concerning Mr. Hones early life be true. Men of repute, who have had occasions to look up the history of the Hone family, say he was horn and grew to manhood in the state of Indiana, and was not only a Democrat, luit A\as a Knight of the Golden Circle, which placed him on a par with a member of I lie deadly order of the Ku-Klu...

PATRIOTISM OF CAPTAIN BLANK By L. W. WASHINGTON It was just high-noon and the sun WM shining bright on this beautiful Spring-day. Hew we saw our story as the street car upon which we rode, passed this way. Being quite familiar with the location, we knew thill it was the street as we before de scribed. Before we had reached this par ticular cornel", we caught a glimpse of this Negro sildier dressed in the Uniform of his country, and for a truth one of our own country-men. Mis splendid carriage, as well as his manly bearing, were the things which attracted our attention the very first time we laid eyes upon him. Indeed, it was an inspiration to us, when first our mental eyes reviewed the situation that gave the creation of this story. Of Observant Patriotism, of Captain and Mrs. Blank. As we beheld them, most especially the man. we had soon discovered that his won derful physique was equally noticeable for sonic considerable distance. For he was one of the finest specimens of Military...
