A national conference in the interest of the 'American colored man was opened In the United Charities Building in this city today by Prof. Burt G.

In an address before the confer-nce Prof. Wilder sold: "The brain of the iiverage American colored man seems to be about two ounces lighter than that of the average white man, and probably there occurs more frequently than in the whise man a less development of the prefrontal lobes. These two conditions render It likely the whites will remain the dominant race. But there are exceptions to the above general conditions of both kinds and among both races." Mrs. Cella Parker Wooley. founder of the Frederick Douglass Center in Chicago, spoke upon the subject of "Race Reconciliation" in part as follows: "The color problem does not pertain to this countrv alone, si 111 less to a particular section of the country. The cry so often heard. 'This Is a Southern problem.' 'The South alone understands the negro.' 'Leave this matter lo us.' Is hut a repetition of the old cry which we heard before the war. The same human passion and sectional pride, the same sense of special ownership and right of Ami appeal inspires the later as the earlier cry.

Sectional feeling has no olace in the settlement of this problem ariv more than in questions of 'he tariff and railway control. "Had we a tithe of the fnith and courage which our political and religious professions' are supposed to bestow we should recognise in this race or color question v..f dimrirl for those manhood riehts which we pretend to grant to alii alike, one more application, in u. v. . special urgency and1 med which shown win Instant response, of that religion of reason and righteousness which we profess. ' "It is not the negro who is at slake in this controversy, deep and widespread ras are his' wrongs. It is the white man. the white man's civilization, the white man's republic. It Is not a question or negro supremacv. but of the worth of those claims to superiority which are so easily alarmed for their own safety ami continuance. It Is hot n question of the Mack man's political enfranchisement. Important and Just as this phase of the question is. The negro can hotter afford to lose his vote than the white man can afford to deprive him of it. "The present greatest need of the negro In this countrv is the discriminating friendship of the white man. The negro suffers from a wholesale Judgment that makes no distinctions or exceptions. It Is only the negro as cook or hutler. waiter or .porter.' whom he knows and takes into account. What a commentary on our Americanism is that state of mind which decrees an entire class or portion of the state and community to a position of Axed Inferiority. The crux ot tne race question lies not a all In any feeling we may have, favorable or unfavorable, toward the colored cook or hutler. It Is not the class to which these belong that suffers most from race prejudice, but the colored mnn and woman who has risen far above the position of menial service, necessary and honorable as this may be."

This they have demonstrated. The firemen, who have feared that alarms would be sounded In order to break up the firemen's end of the parade, have called attention to the fact that the situation might seem especially attractive to the boys who would take such a risk for the reason that, at this time all the members of the police force will be In the parade also. They say it wouldn't be so bad for the firemen to try to parade If the police 'were at the time scattered aDout over tne city wnere tney ueiong. Arranges Telephone Service. Chief Coots of the fire department has made his final arrangements for com munication between the parade and tiro headquarters during the city's display. Each square will have a man at a telephone and the lines the firemen are on will be kept clear during the parade so that the firemen will be In Instant touch with fire Headquarters. If an alarm Is sounded the apparatus which would go to the fire under ordinary conditions will then leave the parade. An effort will be made to keep the middle of every cross street clear of vehicles. Those who drive to see the parade and desire to remain In their rigs will be compelled to keep close to the curbing. Chief Coots has vainly protested against the use of all the fire apparatus In the parade. He has not believed that the outskirts of the city will be safe during the absence of the department, though much better protection will be given the congested district. DEATH REMITS THE MONEY. Sent by Miners to Friends In Earthquake Zone. It Returns. MINERSV1LLE. Pa.. May 31. Many Italian residents of this section are just discovering the wholesale death of relatives In Sicily In towns where cablegram reports were to tho effect that the death rate from the earthquake was small. Large sums of money arc regularly sent from this section to Italy, and It was only when the postal authorities in Sicily were unablfi to find scores of persons and the money was returned to the persons who remitted ilt in America that local Italians learned of the sad fate of rela tives. The news has created profound "A famous French writer said that he recognized In the Catholic one right, namely, to1 be better than other men," said Richard Crane of Cincinnati at the banquet of the Knights of Columbus held last night at the Grand Hotel. There were more than MO plates spread. The banquet was the climax to a day of initiation of candidates, sixty being given the second and third degrees. The toast-master was Joseph A. Kebler, grand knight of Indianapolis Council No. 437. "The right recognised by the French writer," said Crane, "does not mean that a Catholic layman must nc a ruarisee. He need not and. should not walk among his fellows wrapped in self-conscious virtue. Whv should the Catholic be better than other men? Only because of his freedom from slavery Is he fitted to be better than other men. .When we consider how the church surrounds us from the cradle to. the grave, to assist us to carry out her ' high Ideals, and when we consider that our fellow citizens have no such Ideals proposed to them, the surprise would be that Catholics were not better tnan oiner men.

REMEMBERS GRANDFATHER BY COMMITTING CRIME Thanks to the best "all-round" bill in weeks, the regular vaudeville season at the Grand will close with a dte'clded climax. Before an almost capacity Memorial day matinee house yesterday the last week of the season was inaugurated. The audience was unusually liberal in its applause, every number coming in for a yjenerous share. ine warm reception clent to rout from the minds of the per formers the Monday matinee bugbear of the "cold" and "unresponsive." for which IndianaDolls and a few other cities espe dally are famous around the Orpheum circuit. The feature act on the bill is Fiske O'Hara. the Irish tenor, with a company of four in a picturesque sketch of the Glengoriff Mountains, entitled "Captain Barrv." Though there is nothing es pecially strong about the story of the gentleman highwayman and his love for the Irish colonel's daughter. It Is pleasing throughout, and is especially valuable In that It gives Mr. u Hara natural open-1 lngs for his "Nora McXamara" and "Irish Rose" songs songs inseparable from the handsome tenor. It could be wished that the plot were a little more striking and a little less trite, but, remembering the Impossible sketches offered on the vaudeville circuit this season by other well-known recruits from the "legit," the audience should be devoutly thankful that Mr. O'Hara's sketch Is as good as It Is. The one unique act of the bill is that presented by Miss Charlotte Parry and two men, entitled "The Comstock Mystery." Nine characters are introduced, seven of which, widely varying in range. Miss Parry herself enacts. A murder has been committed and a detective comes to the house to investigate. During the course of the investigation he examines seven witnesses all of them Miss Parry. The first Is an old woman, the second a French adventuress, the third a girl of the Bowery, tne iourtn a utile gin sen-ins tickets for a church fair, the fifth a Swede servant girl, the sixth a young woman who has been wronged by the murdered man, and the seventh her crippled brother. Miss Parry enters into each of these characters with a rapidity and accuracy that stamps her a real artiste. Every" one Is glad that John World and Mlndell Kingston are "back from a ramble round the world." as the program says thev are. They are about as clever a pair of eccentrics as have been seen here In a long time. Their offering is a melange, hodgepodge, potpourri, gallimaufry, salmagundi, olla-podrlda, or anything else of the sort you choose, and It Is clever throughout. Herbert and Willing, burnt-cork comedians with their traditional "Oh, Man!" net raised rlnnles of lauehter yesterday that sometimes assumed the proportions of roars. Ed Norton, anotner comedian vim hurt n few old friends in the audience before he opened his mouth to sing, retired from the stage with a house full of new ones. Miss Agnes Mahr. a toe dancer of ability, presents a pleasing dance sketch. "The American Tommy Atkins, assist-.fl hv erncefnl little t'lora Mahr. wo all the earmarks of a "comer."

Blessing of the Blessing duo of equilibrists, "the most beautiful and strongest woman on the stage," they were on tne ngnt tracn, ana .nme. dealing's personality renders the really meritorious act doubly entertaining.
