T T H £ Ti q B U N E other illustrations, the names of Frederick Douglass, Abraham Lincoln and of H. M. Flagler. He was followed by the Rev. S. H. Clark*, a veteran pioneer who came to Florida some 23 years ago. He gave a vivid description of the conditions which existed in those early davs, when the East Coast was a veritabl* desert, infested i with dangerous reptiles ; and how under the magic wand of H. M. Flagler, it had blossomed into a fertile garden. He further related his personal experiences andobser vations of the generosity of the deceased after that memorable frost, when assistance was given to all who had lost thereby, irrespective of race or colour. He concluded by bearing testimony to the sympathy and respect for the negro which Mr. Flagler had repeatedly given proofs of. Rev. |. \V. Drake then spoke on the "possibilities" that hail been realized by Mr. Flagler. He had bridged the oceans, and made 't possible for the hill-tops and the isles of the sea to live as one comnity. lint, best nf all, he had open ed up an avenue for the Gospel o' Christ on the East Coast, making it possible for him and his ministerial brethren to come and preach the glad tidings in many places that had been hitherto all but in accessible, except under great difficulties. He concluded in appealing to his co-workers to unue in | doing their part, faithfully, ir. | spreading the Gospel along this broad avenue opened up by Ml. 1lagler. D. A. Horsey, the successful real estate agent, was the next speaker. He declared that the business interest?#of this community, state and country had lost a great factor and that the world had now lost one of its greatest business prodigies. He was one of the great est who had called the state of Florida "home." God had raised him to reclaim Florida. His mighty genius had opened up hope ful avenues to the disheartened, as well as to the invalid seeking rest and health. He lud changed the map of this state, and had vitalized if. Finally, he laid emphasis on the duty of the negro taking his part in the general mourning, not only because all had been, and weie, receiving benefits, directly Mm) indirectly, but also because he had donated the lots on which now stoftd several of the colored churches, such as the Episcopal, the A. M E. and Mt, Zion Rapt int. Continuing, he asked : "Is Mr. Flagler dead ?" Yes, lie replied, but he still lives in that he has left his impress on the world. He brought his remarks to an end by quoting fioin tin' "lliiln "f Lift these word> : "Fives of great men all remind us, That we can make our lives sublime ; And, departing, leave behind us, Footprints in the sands of lime." Rev. S. A. Samson, of the Bahamas, recalled certain incidents of his first visit to Miami, in 1893, when it was but a vast wilderness. 1*0 teach West Palm lieaclt, in those di.ys, it was necessary either to foot it, or go by sail. He was present when the first locomotive and train rolled into this oty in 1896, and the curiosity which this event created. Mr. Flagler had even crossed over to Nassau. He had made many men, of all colons rich in tins world's goods and all who now were earning iheir daily bread on the east coast, owed it to Mr. Mauler. J. R. Knnwles. on* of the leading and prominent men in the secret fraternities, was then introduced. He dwelt on the advantages which had been offered lomedian. ics bv Mr. Flagler. A great man has fallen. He wal a friend to the negro. All that the men of hi race had earned on the MlSl < %  • ', is due to him. The Bahamians have aKo made mints of money, thanks to him. He concluded byexBres*. ing the hope ih .t God would raise up a worthy successor to Mr. I'lagler. (To be Concluded! KOPS NON-ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES. ALE AND STOUT.

Fla., June nth. 1913. To the Rditnr"The Tribune," Nassau, N. P. (Bahama*) 1 H u Sir : — I am tending to you, for reproduction in your paper, two articles which 1 have clipped from the "Miami-Herald. Th first relates to a memorial service iii honor of the late Henry M. Flaglet held by the (..loured citizens of this community on the same afternoon that the remains of the deceased were to be interred at St: Augustine, Ha. 1 am requesting this favour, because the perusal of the spontaneous and heartfelt tnbut-s which were paid.at that memorable service, will help to acquaint your Readers of the very grievous and mistaken error which is current in the Bahamas relative to Mr. Flakier who certainly has been misunderstood there', as now seen. The dominant and touching note in these tributes was that hfl constantly proved himself a true Wend of the Negro race. He trusted his money to his negro servants; he donated the |otl on which iheir churches have been erected: he protected tliC IM-am I'm men on his lM 1 1110 tives, bv employing U. S. detectives; he insisted on employing negro waiters in his palatial hostelries.thcreby making many a worthv one to earn the means to acquire a more liberal education. Some years ago, when King Frost ruined the crops, he oidered the banks to come to the assistant-. >{ %  \ e ry applicant who received from faooto $400 irrespective of race, or color. Last, but not least, he gave the order which allowed institutions for the education of the negro to send quartettes to sing in his magnificent hotels, thereby raising thousands of dollars for educational purposes from the Northern tourists. After hearing these tributes, I was forced to thisconclusion : had Mr. Flagler, who was an abolitionist, been understood and appreciated, many of your Struggling churches, such as St. John's,would have received substantial assistance from him. It will surprise you to learn from this article that Mr. Flaglcr allowed no discrimination on his railroad and in the waitingrooms at the several statioHS,on account of colour, until he was compelled to do so bv special legislation! Finally, I may say that a similar memorial service was also held, at the same time, in "white town," whereat his philanthropy washighly praised. It was my intention to send you a copy of the same paper which gave a report of it, but 1 was unable to find a spare rtitS. By the second clipping you will'notice that the 8.S. 'Miami' wascom^t/Ied by unforseen circumstances to change her route; but that the merchants here are leaving no stone unturned to have the barriers removed, so as to have \hf tins city and community have once more given RllOthei proof tti.it, as %  IB) t they are very responsive to those tn whom th-.y are beholden by the ties of gratitude. Tins trad was grst made noticeable duiing die civil war, when the honor and safetv of many a hearth and home were entrusted to the slaves by those who were summoned to tl"iron*, wearing the ^ iy. This commendable feature was again illus trated Friday afternoon whan memorial service in honour ol the widely.lamented H M. Flngler was held in Mt. Zion Bipliat church, on Avenue H and whereof Rev. J. T. hrown, D. D., is the pastor, I'he meeting was a representative one. Most of those ene&ged in business on Avenue G had closed the doors of their stores, out of respect for the deceased who Wat justly consioererl a benefactor und friend of their race. Among the pastors present were: Uevs. J. W. Uialce, Si. John's ; S. A. ^amson, Bahamas Missii n ; J. H. Grant, South Miami ; S. 11. Clarke, hethel A. M. E„ and I. 1 Biown, Mt. Zion. The Revs. Williams and A mstrong were unavoidably absent. The united choirs were led by D. A. Docsey. An interesting and appropriate program was rendered, consisting ol addresses, interpersed with choral selections. Attorney Toomey spoke on 1 he Fitness of the Occasion." He emphasized the duty of paying respect to the benefactors of mankind inespective of race, need or color. He reminded his hearers I hat some of the state legislature* had adjourned when the news of the death of Frederics Douglass had been Hashed BCfOSS tllii continent, and also how 'hat the state of North Carolina hod done likewise on the occasion ol the death l Prof. Price. He insisted that great pioneers must have prophetic vision and faith in it* ultiin Its Bi %  complishment, and cited among I in fourth pa| fl

I am tending to you,
for reproduction in your paper,
two articles which 1 have clip-
ped from the "Miami-Herald.
Th first relates to a memorial
service iii honor of the late
Henry M. Flaglet held by the
(..loured citizens of this com-
munity on the same afternoon
that the remains of the deceased
were to be interred at St: Augus-
tine, Ha.
1 am requesting this favour,
because the perusal of the spon-
taneous and heartfelt tnbut-s
which were paid.at that memor-
able service, will help to ac-
quaint your Readers of the very
grievous and mistaken error
which is current in the Bahamas
relative to Mr. Flakier who cer-
tainly has been misunderstood
there', as now seen.
The dominant and touching
note in these tributes was that
hfl constantly proved himself a
true Wend of the Negro race.
He trusted his money to his ne-
gro servants; he donated the
|otl on which iheir churches
have been erected: he protected
tliC IM-am I'm men on his lM 1 1110
tives, bv employing U. S. detec-
tives; he insisted on employing
negro waiters in his palatial
hostelries.thcreby making many
a worthv one to earn the means
to acquire a more liberal edu-
cation. Some years ago, when
King Frost ruined the crops, he
oidered the banks to come to
the assistant-. >{ \ ery applicant
who received from faooto $400
irrespective of race, or color.
Last, but not least, he gave the
order which allowed institutions
for the education of the negro
to send quartettes to sing in his
magnificent hotels, thereby rais-
ing thousands of dollars for edu-
cational purposes from the
Northern tourists.
After hearing these tributes,
I was forced to thisconclusion :
had Mr. Flagler, who was an
abolitionist, been understood
and appreciated, many of your
Struggling churches, such as St.
John's,would have received sub-
stantial assistance from him.
It will surprise you to learn
from this article that Mr. Flaglcr
allowed no discrimination on
his railroad and in the waiting-
rooms at the several statioHS,on
account of colour, until he was
compelled to do so bv special
legislation! Finally, I may say
that a similar memorial service
was also held, at the same time,
in "white town," whereat his
philanthropy washighly praised.
It was my intention to send you
a copy of the same paper which
gave a report of it, but 1 was
unable to find a spare rtitS.
By the second clipping you
will'notice that the 8.S. 'Miami'
wascom^t/Ied by unforseen cir-
cumstances to change her route;
but that the merchants here are
leaving no stone unturned to
have the barriers removed, so as
to have \h<- Miami-Nassau ser-
vice re-established.
Thanking you for space, taken
up,
Yours faithfully,

MIAMI COfORKD PEOPLE
PAY SPLENDID TRIBUTE
The colored citizens <>f tins city
and community have once more
given RllOthei proof tti.it, as IB) t
they are very responsive to those
tn whom th-.y are beholden by the
ties of gratitude. Tins trad was
grst made noticeable duiing die
civil war, when the honor and
safetv of many a hearth and home
were entrusted to the slaves by
those who were summoned to tl"-
iron*, wearing the ^ iy. This com-
mendable feature was again illus
trated Friday afternoon whan *
memorial service in honour ol the
widely.lamented H M. Flngler
was held in Mt. Zion Bipliat
church, on Avenue H and whereof
Rev. J. T. hrown, D. D., is the
pastor,
I'he meeting was a representative
one. Most of those ene&ged in busi-
ness on Avenue G had closed the
doors of their stores, out of respect
for the deceased who Wat justly
consioererl a benefactor und friend
of their race.
Among the pastors present were:
Uevs. J. W. Uialce, Si. John's ;
S. A. ^amson, Bahamas Missii n ;
J. H. Grant, South Miami ; S. 11.
Clarke, hethel A. M. E and I. 1 .
Biown, Mt. Zion. The Revs. Wil-
liams and A mstrong were un-
avoidably absent. The united
choirs were led by D. A. Docsey.
An interesting and appropriate
program was rendered, consisting
ol addresses, interpersed with chor-
al selections.
Attorney Toomey spoke on 1 he
Fitness of the Occasion." He em-
phasized the duty of paying res-
pect to the benefactors of mankind
inespective of race, need or color.
He reminded his hearers I hat some
of the state legislature* had ad-
journed when the news of the
death of Frederics Douglass had
been Hashed BCfOSS tllii continent,

other illustrations, the names of
Frederick Douglass, Abraham Lin-
coln and of H. M. Flagler.
He was followed by the Rev. S.
H. Clark*, a veteran pioneer who
came to Florida some 23 years ago.
He gave a vivid description of the
conditions which existed in those
early davs, when the East Coast
was a veritabl* desert, infested i
with dangerous reptiles ; and how
under the magic wand of H. M.
Flagler, it had blossomed into a
fertile garden. He further related
his personal experiences andobser
vations of the generosity of the de-
ceased after that memorable frost,
when assistance was given to all
who had lost thereby, irrespective
of race or colour. He concluded
by bearing testimony to the sym-
pathy and respect for the negro
which Mr. Flagler had repeatedly
given proofs of.
Rev. |. \V. Drake then spoke on
the "possibilities" that hail been
realized by Mr. Flagler. He had
bridged the oceans, and made 't
possible for the hill-tops and the
isles of the sea to live as one com-
nity. lint, best nf all, he had open
ed up an avenue for the Gospel o'
Christ on the East Coast, making
it possible for him and his minis-
terial brethren to come and preach
the glad tidings in many places
that had been hitherto all but in
accessible, except under great dif-
ficulties. He concluded in appeal-
ing to his co-workers to unue in |
doing their part, faithfully, ir. |
spreading the Gospel along this
broad avenue opened up by Ml.
1- lagler.
D. A. Horsey, the successful real
estate agent, was the next speaker.
He declared that the business in-
terest?#of this community, state
and country had lost a great fac-
tor and that the world had now
lost one of its greatest business
prodigies. He was one of the great
est who had called the state of
Florida "home." God had raised
him to reclaim Florida. His
mighty genius had opened up hope
ful avenues to the disheartened,
as well as to the invalid seeking
rest and health. He lud changed
the map of this state, and had vi-
talized if. Finally, he laid empha-
sis on the duty of the negro taking
his part in the general mourning,
not only because all had been, and
weie, receiving benefits, directly
Mm) indirectly, but also because he
had donated the lots on which
now stoftd several of the colored
churches, such as the Episcopal,
the A. M E. and Mt, Zion Rapt int.
Continuing, he asked : "Is Mr.
Flagler dead ?" Yes, lie replied,
but he still lives in that he has
left his impress on the world. He
brought his remarks to an end by
quoting fioin tin' "lliiln "f Lift
these word> :
"Fives of great men all remind us,
That we can make our lives
sublime ;
And, departing, leave behind us,
Footprints in the sands of
lime."
Rev. S. A. Samson, of the Baha-
mas, recalled certain incidents of
his first visit to Miami, in 1893,
when it was but a vast wilderness.
1*0 teach West Palm lieaclt, in
those di.ys, it was necessary either
to foot it, or go by sail. He was
present when the first locomotive
and train rolled into this oty in
1896, and the curiosity which this
event created. Mr. Flagler had
even crossed over to Nassau. He
had made many men, of all colons
rich in tins world's goods and all
who now were earning iheir daily
bread on the east coast, owed it to
Mr. Mauler.
J. R. Knnwles. on* of the lead-
ing and prominent men in the se-
cret fraternities, was then introduc-
ed. He dwelt on the advantages
which had been offered lomedian.
ics bv Mr. Flagler. A great man
has fallen. He wal a friend to the
negro. All that the men of hi race
had earned on the MlSl <-', is
due to him. The Bahamians have
aKo made mints of money, thanks
to him. He concluded byexBres*.
ing the hope ih .t God would raise
up a worthy successor to Mr. I'lag-
ler.
