RESPONSIBLE AS CORPORATIONS. triglish Commission Says That Labor Organizations Should Make Contracts as Legal Companies. It is gratifying to know, writes Rev ;ohn Snyder in the St Louis Globe-Dem ocrat, that a royal commission appointed in England to consider the whole question of the relation of labor and capital has already outlined a policy. ate English commissioners are convinced that the first step in a radical reform must be to give labor organizations a legal personality. Then they can sue and be sued. Now they are simply irresponsible aggregations of individuals, having no legal existence at all Damage suits can be brought against individual members of these societies, but that is usually mere waste of time. When they have a corporate existence their treasuries will be responsible for the action of the societies' agents. This will make them cautious and conservative. If. in addition to this. the contract system should be generally alopted, by virtue of which the relations between employer and employe could be terminated only upon sufficient notice from either party, the labor problem would begin to be put in the process of Solution. Of course. the question of arbitration Is a more difficult one to settle. In rigid legal theory the laborer is simply a man Who has Libor to sell. If the buyer of that commodity refuses to pay what the seller regards as the market price, be can no more be legally forced to arbitrate the matter than the purchaser of any other kind of goods. This is the strict business aspect of the matter. The purchaser of labor must be legally protected in right to buy in the cheapest market. This seems to be the limit of legal right But it la by no means the limit of Christianity. Human brotherhood begins where law ends, and when I hear a man Speak in the very spirit of paganism and say that the question of wages is only a matter of supply and demand, that a man is justified in the higher ethics in paying his fellow-creatures just enough wages to keep soul and body together. simply because that fellow-creature is weak and ignorant I feel that Sodom and Gomorrah ought to rise in judgment against this generation. I am not what men call a practical socialist I never saw a socialistic plan that did not seem to me to contain the germ of social tyranny; but I shall never believe that our social relations are wisely and righteously adjusted and administered till every man who is honestly willing to labor shall be able to live in this common heritage, the earth, In reasonable decency and comfort In bringing about this result I expect rvery little aid from the law, but I expect a great deal from the spirit of Christianity. It has recently been quite a fad, esWially in the pulpit, to abuse rich men, knd, like all fads, it is likely to work Very serious harm. Any spirit that deepens and sharpens the line of social caste Is at this time a worker of We have rich men who are hard, selfish, greedy, and tyrannous in their use of wealth. but we have rich men who see the very profound difficulties that surround the just and wise administration of great wealth, and are honestly anxious to know and do their duty In the premises. What the future may bring forth we cannot tell, but up to the present time the system of private property has sureIl been at the root of civilization. Plenty of rich men have accumulated property under conditions that are consistent with the highest integrity and the noblest character, and the common habit of massing men in classes. instead of dealing with them as individuals, Is productive of injustice and all uncharitableness.

CI for book, "Bow to be Be Almes A. 13 Winter SETS IN Mrs John Lewis is the Mrs Jack Gardner of Her PeopleMiss Washington a Leader in Artistic CirclesMen and Women in Business and Professional WalksThe Promise of a Poet. According to the census taken In 1890. the colored population of Boston was found to be 8590. Of this number 3964 were found to be women and 4626 were found to be men. In four years there has been an Increase of some thousands to this number, making a sum total of 10.000 negroes. slightly more or less, in the city of Boston. Colored society in Boston is broken up Into many classes. Each class is sharply defined, having its own leaders, its own followers. and its own peculiar avocations, customs and ceremonies. There are two distinct fashionable sets. There is the "West end" set, so called, and the "South end" set. Between the members of each set there is all of the rivalry and the reach for supremacy that Is usually found between two opposing parties. The Rutting and the Ridleys" are the centers about which swell society at the West end revolves. Prtor to be marriage some three years ago Mrs Bertha Ridley was Bertha Ruffin, and taught in a public school on Phillips et. LILLIAN At present she presides over a very charming home on Charles st. She is a gracious woman to meet socially, and very pretty withal. Mrs Ridley's mother, Mrs Josephine St Pierre Ruffin, widow of the deceased Judge Ruffin, Is the leader of some of the best of the intellectual and fashionable colored society in this city. She is a woman with a very bright, quid mind, and is thoroughly progressive, always being in touch with the spirit of the times. She edits a small paper known as the Woman's Era, and is president of a club of the same name. Once or twice every month the club meets at Mrs Ruffin's home on Charles St to talk on woman's suffrage and to drink tea and nibble waffles. Mrs Ruffin is short in stature and plump. Her complexion is light brown, and her hair silvery and abundant. She has an intellectual face. In this respect her family resemble her. Her son, Stanley Ruffin. is a civil engineer. He was graduated from the institute of Technology some years ago. George L. Ruffin is a bookkeeper for a firm on Hawley at. He was graduated from the English high school, and had the gratification of being the first colored youth ever selected to be a captain of one of the school companies. Mr Ruffin is a musician of some repute, and is the organist at St Augustine's church on Phillips St. . .0:: - it:Si47:.,....

"Bob-Ruffin. as he is known to his relatives and familiar friends, was always a promising boy, so promising. in fact, was he that some of the members of the Charles St church sent him to a Methodist theological school to study for the ministry. While yet in the school his religious convictions underwent a change, and he determined to become a priest. This action on Robert Ruffin's part- caused more than one ripple on the placid seas of the religious content of his relatives and friends, but the young man has held firm to his purpose. He is tall and robust, brown skinned and stately, with a personal magnetism that wins friends on every hand. Another brother, Powhatan Ruffin. Is THE BOSTON SUNDAY GLOBESUNDAY -jinx 22 1894 THIRTY-TWO a n actress. She has not been with , uuspto anenceousraagee. melitoninhoeurecdaeusiresato go I 1 o ,,, BI !t I PARASOLSANDMINSHAINS n rt n n AW,.,0m..11 In business, and is reputed to have considerable wealth. of the West end set Mrs Aramina Sparrow, the singer, is recognized as a social power. Mrs John Lewis and Mrs Phebe Glover of Columbus av are the leaders of the South end set. Mrs Glover is one of the richest colored women in the city. Her daughter, Miss Georgie, is a very fine pianist, and gives lessons to a favored few, and her son. Edward, is a violinist of much ability. Young Glover is an architect But beyond a doubt the "Mrs Jack Gardner" of colored society in Boston Is Mrs "John" Lewis. Mrs Lewis is a tall. graceful woman, and looks absurdly youthful to be the mother of a .big girl of 15. Her skin is very fair and delicate in texture, and her hair shining and smooth and black as the proverbial raven's wing. In her manner she is Vivacious and cordial, and when the occasion may demand she is a brilliant conversationalist. Mr Lewis is a wealthy man, and his wife presides over a very elegant and luxurious home. Miss Lillian Lewis, who is employed in a responsible position on one of the city's big dailies, and Miss Ednorah, or "Daisy" Nahar, are the leaders of the A. LEWIS. younger members of both sets. They stand. as it were, between the two, and extend a hand to each. Miss Lewis and Miss Nahar are the most brilliant and progressive young colored women In Boston today. Miss Lewis' pleasant home on Myrtle st is always a center of attraction. For some time she was president of what was termed, facetiously, the "Ignorance club." Several college men were members, together with some of the cleverest young men and women of the president's acquaintance. Miss Lewis is a member of the New England Woman's Press association, and her earnest manner and noble motives have won for her many friends among the members of the association. Miss Daisy Nahar, like Miss Lewis, see-saws between the West end set and the South end set, without losing any of her popularity with either. The young girl is a niece of Mrs Ruffin& She makes her home, when In the city, at 39 Buckingham et. The rooms of her home breathe the atmosphere of true refinement and culture. The book shelves of the library are lined with books that speak of a taste at once classic and scholastic. The pictures on the wall are suggestions of the true and beautiful In life. Palms and ferns lift their graceful heads from squatty, dull-colored pots near the window, and the furniture is antique enough and quaint enough to appear to have a history. When the young girl is in this room of her home books, pictures, nodding palms all seem a fitting environment for her, she is so thoroughly a lady and so thoroughly artistic, from the crown of her small. proud head to the tips of her slender. beautiful brown fingers. In looking at Ednorah Nahar. and in hearing the rich, refined tones of her voice as she discusses warmly the world of art and letters, no one could ask if the colored race has intellectual possibilities. In this beautiful girl all possibilities that the most sanguine might hope for the race are realized or promised. Miss Nahar has a great amount of histrionic ability. and is very shortly to make her debut on the stage in a play which she and Alexander Dumas are to plan together. Miss Nahar will go abroad this fall. If her present plans remain unchanged. Upon her return her friends will have an opportunity to Judge of her meritk as an actress. She has not been without encouragement in her desire to go upon the stage. Dion Boucicault said of her: "She has power and the sacred tire of genius, and ought soon to be at the top as an actress." John Boyle O'Reilly corroborated this statement by saying, "She has power, force. talent and genius." , 0,,tow '---Nzs-N--''.1-;trtliimil N4- N---!,:,,., . i ( ( tr7 etv,, . ,-, ) - 4 Pyritt(14.dt .1 )i e-- .061;131h,N,;. 14' 4.1,441 4:( v---- '.: - -, ' . .

Miss Nahar is a lovely girl. Her skin Is almost smooth and a real creamy color, her features clearly cut and delicate. Her eyes are deeply, lusciously brown, and she has an abundance of silky hair, which she arranges in a becoming manner about her small, oval face. In the earnestness and sweet womanliness of her whole expression she does not look unlike Princess Kaiulani of the Hawaiian islands-The colored people in Boston are not so wealthy as in some other sections of the country, and with the true spirit of the modern Athens, the questions asked of an aspirant to a position in either set are, "NVtio are you?" "What do you know?" rather than "How much wealth have you?" Perhaps Miss R. M. Washington has done more than any other one person in Boston to help talented young colored people to an artistic career. Miss Washington herself is a thorough musician, having been graduated many years ago from the New England conservatory of music. Socially "the Washingtons" are very exclusive. They live in a house at the West end that was their grandfather's. Lawyer Grtmke of Hyde Park is well known to Boston people through the force of his talents and the romance of his life story. He Is the nephew of the deceased wife of Theodore Weld. His own mother was a beautiful slave girl, and his wife was a white woman who belonged to one of the best known families in this city. Mr Grimke has a little (laughter of 14 years, who is giving great promise of lierary attainment. A short time ago the child wrote some verses. They are crude, these verses and Irregular In form; but any one reading them will surely ask the question, "Why comes this soul cry in the heart of this child for the 'missing link' that has puzzled the brains of the wise and good for generations.' Here is the little poem. It is called "Street Echoes." Up the street. and down tbe street, . Hear the patter of falling feet. All night through and all day long, Hear the patter of weak and strong. Up the street, and down the street. Hear the patter of falling feet. of rich and poor, weak and strong. Up or down street all day long. Down the street here eomes a man, Sick and poor, wretched, wan, Crooked back, and white bait, too, His face is ploched, his haeds are bine. Here be comes adown the street. Dragging his weary, totring feet, Gazing rot to right roe left, Al from every friend bereft. So be passes down the street, Leaving the echoes of his feet. - Now there comes a lady gay Up the sidewalk in fine array. Pretty foot and pretty hand, The fairest face in all the land,' And I see her scornful eye Is axed on each as she goes by. Thus I see each passing day People rich in fine array. People poor, with haggard eyes, Hear the anguish 'neath their sighs! And I say can this be right, The poor In darkness. the rich in light health and Joy. the rich man's pride, Mitery e'er on poverty's side. But it does no good to think. It can't be found, that missing link. Which will tell the reason why Perhaps I'll find It when I die. Up the street, and down the street, Hear the patter of falling feet, Of rieh and poor. weak and strong. Up or down street all night long. The professional and businesis life among the race in Boston is as interesting to note as the social. Dr J. T. Steil Jr is one of the most skilful of the colored physicians. Dr Still is a brother of Wm. Still of Philadelphia, the author of the "Underground Rallroad,4 which was published in 1874, and had a big sale, having been much read br white and colored people throughout the country. Dr Still Jr is a man of middle age and has a family of very bright children. Prior to her marriage Mrs Still was a teacher in the Philadelphia schools and Is a cultivated lady of reserved manners. Dr Still has the largest and most complete library of books, papers, tracts and pamphlets written by colored men all over the world. He is the only colored man ever elected to the school board of Boston. and served on that board during the seventies. Dr Still is a. great -race man," but he and his family live mostly to themselves, and are seldom, if 'ever, present at any social gathering. There are several other doctors of some prominence living among the colored people of Boston. Dr Rebecca Crump ler is the one woman who. ete a physician . made an enviable place for herself in the ranks of the medical fraternity. Dr Crump ler is the author of rather a valuable book, "Medical Discourses." She is a very pleasant and intellectual woman. and an indefatigable church worker. Dr Crump ler is 59 or 60 years of age, tall and straight, with light brown skin and gray hair. There are so many colored lawyers with an active practice that it would be difficult even to enumerate them in a sketch like this. Some colored business men are wealthy. It is held that Joseph Scarlet is the possessor of more money than any other of the colored citizens of Boston. It is thought that Mr Scarlet could cash his checks to the amount of 8100,000. He made most of it years ago sweeping chimneys. Nathaniel Springfield of 18 Garden St Is another bondholder. Mr Springfield was born a slave, in Virginia. He came , to Boston some time in the 40's. He worked at blacksmithing for a number of years. Then he drove a wagon for a colored man named Smith. Smith at this time was doing a thriving straw business. Mr Springfield was faithful over a few things, and finally he became master over manyeven over the straw business. At the present day Mr Springfield's wealth is estimated to be about $80,000. John Lewis, the husband of the leadee of the "South end set," is taxed for bonds and property worth $75,000 or SSO.- 000. Mr Lewis has made all of his money in Roston.

The queer looking girl was running from the very queer looking boy, and both were laughing loudly. When they saw the children sitting at the table they both stopped suddenly. Then the queer looking girl turned and made a wry face at the very queer looking boy. At this both burst out laughing and suddenly stopped again. "Be ashamed of yourselves!" exclaimed old Mr Rabbitt, rapping on the door with his cane. "Be ashamed! Where are your manners? Go and speak to our friends and make your best bow. toodont forget that!" Mr Rabbit appeared to be very indignant. Mrs Meadows was in a better humor. "This." she said. as the queer looking girl came forward. "is Chiskamy Crany Crows and this (as the very queer looking boy came timidly up) is Tickle-MyToes." They bowed and then went off a little way. looking very solemn and comical. "They are country raised, poor things! you'll have to excuse them. They don't know any better." Mr Thimblefinger sighed as he said this and looked thoughtful. 'What about the Talking Saddler' Buster John inquired. "You said the story wasn't finished." "To be sure! To be sure!" Mr Thimblefinger cried. "My mind is like a wagon without a tongue. It goes every way but the right way. Where was I? 0. yes! I remember now. "Well, the mayor was very thankful to Tip-Top for saving his treasure and his horses, but he wasn't satisfied about the saddle. He was worried. "Now, you know, when a child is worried it cries, but when a grown man is worried he sits down and looks a way oft and puts his elbow in his hand and his finger to his noseso." - "0, I've seen papa do that," laughed Sweetest Susan. "Yes, that's the way the mayor did," Mr Thimblefinger continued. "There was a great thief in that country who had never been caught. He didn't care for judges and juries and court houses. He always sent the mayor word when he was coming to the city and when he was going away. "Now. just the day before, the mayor had received a letter from the man. The thief said he W ELS coming after a fine race horse that was owned by the mayor's brother. So the mayor sat and thought, and finally he asked Tip-Top if his Talking Saddle could catch a fa'ous thief. " 'It has just caught four common rogues, your honor,' replied Tip-Top, 'and I think it can catch one uncommon thief.' "Then the mayor told Tip-Top that the most famous thief in all that country intended to steal his brother's race horse. Tip-Top said he must see the horse, and together they went to the stable where it was kept. "The horse was already guarded. Two servants sat in the stall, two sat outside and two remained near the door. The mayor's brother was also there. " 'What is this?' the brother asked. " 'This fellow wants to sell his saddle,' replied the mayor. " 'Then arrest him.' cried the brother, 'for he is the thief.' " 'Nonsense,' replied the mayor. 'He is a very honest man, and I will vouch for him.' Then the mayor called his brother aside and told him why the man with the saddle had come to see the horse? "Tip-Top talked with the men who had been set to guard the horse. and he soon found that one of them was an accomplice of the thief. "This man made a swift sign to Tip-Top and placed his linger on his mouth. Tip-Top replied by closing his eyes with his fingers, as if to show that he saw nothing. When he had an opportunity he said to this man: " 'Tell your master I will be willing to sell the saddle tonight. I will sleep with It under my head on the next corner. It is worth one thousand pieces of gold.' "Then he returned to the mayor and they went away. Tip-Top laughed as they walked along. " 'This thief,' he remarked. 'is a fool. It is so easy to steal a horse that he will not buy a saddle. He will try to steal mine. Then we shall catch him. He will get the horse' " 'What!' cried the mayor; 'get the horse' " 'Certainly; nothing is easier,' replied Tip-Top. 'He will get the horse, aed then he will want a saddle. He will be passing the wall here. He will see me sleeping with my head on my friend, and then he will attempt to Steal it; but the surcingle will be buckled around my body, and I will wake and cry blue murd?r. " 'Then you and your brother can come forward from the vacant house yonder and seize him. " 'Where did you learn all this? asked afr the mayor. He began to suspect that PAGES.

' 'My Saddle told met' Tip-Top answered. THE QUEER LOOKING BOY AND GIRL. " 'Weil. mild the mayor, 'your plan is as good as any, but how will the thief get the horse that is so well guarded?' " Tip-Top exclaimed, 'if I were to tell you we should never Catch the lef.' "When night came the watchers who had been set to guard the horse were very anxious. They were ready to artest any one who might chance to enter. The hours passed, but no thief came. Then the watchers began to get tired. " 'We are crazy,' said one. 'How can a thief steal this horse, even if be were to come in here? We are four to one. Two of us should sleep awhile, and thus we can take turns in watching." "This was agreed to, and two of the guards stretched themselves on the straw and prepared to sleep. But just then they heard some one singing far down the streeet It was a jolly song, and thlb sound of it came louder and louder. " 'Friends,' be said, when his song was done, 'what is the trouble?' " 'We are watching a horse.' " 'Is he sick? Perhaps I can aid you. I have doctored many a horse in my day.' " He is not sick,' replied the watchers. 'He is well and taking his ease. We are watching to prevent a thief from stealing him.' "Then they told him the threat the thief had made. " 'Come, that is too good,' cried the newcomer. 'This thief will be worth looking at when four such stout lads as you get through with him. When does he show himself?' " 'That is what we are to find out,' replied the watchers. " 'Very well, the newcomer said; "I'll stay, by your permission, and see you double him up. ' "The watchers gave their consent gladly, for the newcomer had a lively manner and a rattling tongue. He sang songs and told stories for an hour or more, and then pulled a bottle from under his coat. " 'A little wine,' he said, 'will clear the fog from our throats.' He passed the bottle around, and all drank except the guard, who was watching in the stall. "Now the man who had come singing up the street was the thief himself, and the guard in the stall was his companion. The wine was drugged, and in a very few minutes three of the watchers were fast asleep. Then the thief and his companion took the horse from the stall. " shall have to remain here and pretend to be asleep,' said the companion. 'You will find a saddle around the One Number - 4.41,4 -;, ilk. - --: t k .A rill, ,, a, ,It- plire,t6 r o 0 ..

'It is a tricka trap.' "But when he bad carried off the horse and hid it at the house of an acquaintance the thought of the man with the saddle worried him so that he Went back to satisfy himself. "Tip-Top and his saddle were there, and Tip-Top had slept so soundly that his head had rolled from his pillow. The thief thought it would be a good stroke of business to take the saddle along, but when he tried to lift it Tip Top awoke and seized him, and cried 'Murder!' at the top of his voice. "The mayor and his brother rushed from their place of concealment and , soon the thief was bound. " Where is the horse?' cried the mayor. " 'What horse?' exclaimed the thief. 'Do you think I carry horses in my pocket?' " 'What were you doing here, then?' 'This fellow's head had slipped from Its pillow, and when I tried to put it back he seized me and yelled that I was murdering him! I saw no horse under the saddle.' " 'Wait here a little,' said Tip-Top. 'Hold this thief till I return.' "He went to the stable, woke the thief's accomplice, who by this time was really asleep, and told him his companion had been captured. 'If I can find the horse and hide it our friend will be safe, for nothing can be proved on him.' "The man was so frightened that be told Tip-Top where be had arranged to meet the thief the next day. "Then Tip-Top returned to the mayor and his brother, who still held the thief, and took them to the house where the horse had been stabled. "When the horse had been found and restored to its owner the mayor said to Tip-Top that he would not only reward him handsomely, but grant any request he might make. " Then, your honor,' replied Tip-Top, 'give this man his liberty? "Why?" asked the mayor, much astonished. " 'Because, your honor, he is my brother.' "The thief was as much astonished as the mayor at this turn in his affairs, but he had no difficulty in recognizing Tip-Top as his younger brother. "Then the thief fell on his knees and begged the mayor to pardon him, promising him to live and die an honest man. And he kept his promise. He engaged in business, and. aided by Tip-Top 's advice and influence, made a large fortune." "I've read something about the great thief," remarked Buster John. "But the story didn't end that way. The thief escaped every time." "0, well, you know bow some people are." explained Mrs Meadows. "They want everything to happen just so; even a thief must be a big man if he's in a story; but I don't believe anybody ever stole anything yet without getting into trouble about it." "Who is that crying?" Mr Rabbit suddenly exclaimed. "I hear no crying," said Mrs Meadows. "I certainly thought I heard crying," persisted Mr Rabbit. "It is Chickamy Crany Crow and Tickle-My-Toes singing. Listen!" Sure enough the queer looking boy and the queer looking girl were singing a song. One sang one line and the other the next line, and this made the song somewhat comical. The words were something like these: CHICKAMT CRANY CROW, "CO, sing it slow, This song of we of the girl who went to wash her toel Her name waa Chick-- (0, run here quick!
