RODENBERRY WAXED HOT AT NEGROES MARRYING MERE WHITE CHILD-LREN Washington, Jan. 31.-In a speech which received the close attention of the House yesterday, Representative Rodenbe-rry, of Georgia, deplored intermarriage between the white and negro races, and denounced the white minister who recently married a Chicago negro of forty-two years to a �white girl of fifteen years. The Georgian member said that such occurrences sometimes tempt men too much. Waving a copy of the marriage certificate in this case, Jie shouted: "My God! That the laws of any civilized state should permit a bestial brute to have sanctioned by law his wedlock to such a child!" �Mr. Rodenberry, who recently stirred the house with a denunciation of th- marriage between Jack Johnson mid a white woman, said today that another case, even more '"disgraseful" had come under his notice. He referred to the marriage at Niles. Mich., of George 'F. Thompson, a negro, and Helen E. Hanson, a white girl, both of Chicago. The ceremony, he said, had been performed by Charles Ager, "a -minster 'of the gospel-a white minister, at :that, who, incidentally, ought to be tarred and feathered and sent info, exile.", "This girl is the only daughter of a widow, who conducted a grocery store," the Georgian said. "According to the newspaper accounts, she helped her mother around the store when- not attending schcol. She wears her-hair done in a braid, and also wears short dresses." Mr. Rodenberry declared the reported manner in which the negro had "bought the'child candy," finally persuading her to go with him to the home of a negro friend, where she was kept all night. "She took with her the doll the "You may. understand it, gehtle-Rodcnberry. with clenched fists. "Think of it! A forty-two-year-old negro can take a child of this age to a negro home, keep her all night, then wed her-and yet escape the violence of brave men in the city." The negro, he said, 'was arrested after, the marriage, and the girl was now apparently in a dying condition, while Thompson was held for abduction. Hinting strongly at more summary punishment, the Georgian said: "You ma yunderstand it, gentlemen; but it passss my comprehension, that the black hrute, who abducted this child, bound her in wedlock; and after outraging her, left her dying in a negro home, could ever THE LETHBRIDGK DAILY, HERALD ijorill IMS Grant to Education is Liberal in this Province-Interesting Discussion Friday, January 3JU 1013.

Let the people of the states pray their legislatures to prevent our weak, helpless women from becoming victims of such brutality and repulsive legal manages which cannot but impair our civilization and lead finally to violence and vengeance, which lovers of,law and order must deplore. "If the- states do not act," he concluded, "I suggest to this House that it will be 'well to pass my. bill, making illegal such intermarriage."

US, 'DURING THIS SALE YOURS FOR For $10.00 Furniture Co, Opposite; Court House Edmonton, Jan. 30.-Hon. J. R. Boyle in his. address to the Alberta trustees' convention yesterday afternoon replied to a resolution passed last year hearing on the subject of school grants and which several speakers at the morning session asserted had not been curried out by the government. He referred to the proportion of the cost of maintaining the public schools, the giants to such schools being larger than those of any other province in the Dominion. He did not think the province should I pay any more than it was now paying, but "changes might be made in respect to the manner in which the grants are computed. Statistics are being prepared giving cost per day of educating each child in public schools both rural and irrban. With regard to medical inspection, he did not think it was feasible at the present time, in rural schools on account of the expense. Village districts might be given the same power as towns in this respect at the next session of the legislature. The public school system, he believed, would supply children in rural districts with elementary courses in scientific agriculture. The fact that a great portion ,of children in rural schools would be following agriculture as a vocation justified the attempt being made, and commencing next summer, summer courses 'would be held for the training of teachers along these lines. -, The influx of population into the province in the last few years "has been remarkable and the next ten years would probably see a still more remarkable - influx. The children of this province must therefore have ed-1 ucation to enable them to compete successfully with the best of children, whose parents would come into the province during this generation. \ Th'e Country Schools Education problems as they affect country schools, loomed largely in the proceedings of the convention of the School Trustees' Association which opened in Edmonton'yesterday morning; There was a civic welcome to the hundred odd delegates ^assembled, followed by addresses from the president and others. T. O. King, Raymond, president,'-'-in the absence of P. E. Butchart, Edmonton; and Aid. H. W. B.'Douglas, welcomed the delegates on behalf of the city. Most Important Crop "The most important crop we grow," said W. J.. Tregillus, Calgary, speaking on education from a farmer's point of view, "is a crop of boys and girls. For every boy and girl who seeks it, the .highest branches of education should be'open." Dr. Scott of Caigary made a demand for better treatment of the resolutions such as those passed by the convention last year, and urged that a deputation wait upon the lieutenant-governor itb  press their requests at  the close of the convention. Dr. A. C. Cooper Johnson, Lund-breck, said the convention was composed of technical, arfd practical men who knew the problems confronting themj as educationists, and .their, requests .deserved more consideration than they appeared to get. W. G. Hay, Medicine Hat, said tjiat in regard to consolidated schools and compulsory education, the- government had already.. taken .. action on these matters. They had received every attention. -The question of how the new. rural municipality organizations will affect school districts was raised and D. S. Mackenzie, deputy minister of education, said that instead of leaving a"fate for-school-purposes, the secretaries of school die-, tricts should send;-;a, statement of estimated requirements.-which will levy the rate for educational  ,-purpose's along with municipal tax. Cost of High Schools -.-In the discussion that followed Mr. Boyle'B address, J..A.
