Iox Ington und others Those adortjunca were all unusually interesting and tho exorcises of the students re ¬ flected great credit upon tho parents and teachers Tho next morning a conference of former colored students of Boica was hold in the Library Prcs Frost explained tho Adjustment Fund which the College Is undertaking to raise In order that It my continue Ita good work for both races Tho funds ot the College having keen partitioned tho Adjustment Fund in to real ro to tho mountain work an amount equal a that which has been whit draws Jar vho benefit of tho colored people and at the came

under new conSltloiig and topr idflnt Frost for i1g indefatigable ef CrtlMft Tfc howler Rapo Primaries and conventions will soon be held to choose candidates to be elected next fall nUll delegates to the big conventions There is no fight between parties going on and none of the spread eagle orato ry that marks the fall and many men fail to take the part they should in these preliminary doings But the conventions and primaries are really tho times when the best work for good government and honesty tu public life can bo done and every citizen who wants to see honest officials fair cleat administration of the government and the courts and wants to work for tho improvement of the state should give his time now Your vote at the primaries or the convention is worth three or four times as much as it will be worth in the fall Then there are only two men to choose between and if there are dirty politicians in your district both will probably be bad men and your choice is bound to be bad Probably you will vote for your party nominee whether he is good or not on tho ground that his better the party should win But now Is your chance to have even if some of its then are not good There will not be io many men vote at the prima good nominees ries nor so many nl tho conventions ahd your vote will count for one Also there are good and bad men in any party and this is more your chance to vote to havo a good man made the candidate of yours After tho primary it will be too InteThe primary is the bad politi there and it has cinns weak spot If you can ever beat been proved over mid over again that when a state gets good primary lava tho bad politicians lost power Politicians try to control the primaries and mass conventions by menus of tricks and they try too to get men nominated that the vot ers know little about mid may not agree with J3o suro to find out what the candidate stands for before you vote for his nomination and dont let tho politicians get the power away from you by a crooked vote or any of tho other tricks that everybody knows but for ¬ gets to wntch for And get together The bad politicians Democrats and Republi cans alike get together and can beat any two or three men but if sev- ¬ eral good men unite they can win out sooner or later Talk it over among yourselves and know what is expected of you when the time to act comes Particularly see that your delegate to the district con ventions will vote not only for the right man for Congress but the right man for President And make him promise before the convention just which way ho will vote And very particularly tcafci the nominations of precinct chair The party gives a lot or power to those men men and committeemtn and thorn is nothing more important to your party in your district than who is chairman If he is honest you will have honest nomiua lions and probably honest elections If he is dishonest he will cheat you ns well itS the other party If he is working for the party ho will help it more than nny one else can and if he is working for himself he will hurt it more than any oueou the other side This is the time when you can do the most for tho success of your party next fall If you do not pas attention to tho primaries and uiasncouventions you do not mako a hand fight for the good nominees and good delegates you will not bo doing your duty by the par ty or the state no matter how tnuclTyou work next fall nor how much you give to tho campaign fund Aoio w the time for tho good citizens to pet together and see that the voters havo a chance to vote for a good man on
