PLEADING FOR THE NEGROES Bishop Halsejr Speaks to the Metbodfst Con- ference la Baltimore. BALTIMORE, March 16 Halsey, in an address before the Baltimore conference o: the Methodist episcopal church south, spoke in part as follows "I want to say that we have a high regard for you, and our colored people are looking to the Methodist Episcopal church south to aid them "We look to you, and yoa to as, for know you, and yon know us. Colored men have an abundance of religion, and, in fact, I some- times think they may have more than the white man, but they may be lackinj in the spirit of true Christianity. The coloret man has a claim on his white brethren I say this delicately but emphatically, for they were sent here on no act of their own, but through an overruling providence, and, as a result many Christian colored people are now angels in heaven. We were brought here as slaves, and I claim therefore that southern people ought to do their duty by them. When tbe flower of the manhood of oar sunny went to fight where blood fiowed freely in the eanae, our white people thought i was right when the colored man stood by the homes of their mastets. and worked and delved and labored for the sap- port ot yonr wives and little ones, who were left behind by..... brothers. theiz soldier husbands and THCT XOVV THXJt TXT.
