Estimate of Dr. Coppin as an Editor
			
      THE REVIEW'S FIRST FINANCIAL BACKER.

  "To Henry M. Turner belongs the credit for these words:
'Go ahead, Tanner, and bring the bill to me for the first
issue.'"
  So writes Bishop Tanner. While the bill was not sent
to Bishop Turner, because it was not necessary, that in
no wise lessens the credit and largeness of the action; for
he could not know that he would not be called on to meet
the obligation.
  You see, dear readers, how a record rises from time to
time to rejoice or annoy.
  Now is the opportunity to get your name in right on
this Twenty-fifth Anniversary effort to increase the cir-
culation. Do your best work and say your best word pub-
lic, so that twenty-five years from now, the REVIEW edi-
tor of that day may quote you for special service!


  AN ESTIMATE OF DR. COPPIN AS AN EDITOR.

  In 1888, while the General Conference was in session,
in Indianapolis, Ind., when it became evident that Dr. B.
T. Tanner would be elected a Bishop, attention was directed
to the editorship of the A. M. E. REVIEW.  It had been in
the hands of its originator, Dr. Tanner, for the past four
years, a man generally regarded as "the most vigorous
editor the A. M. E. Church had produced."        On every
hand men were asking "Whom shall we elect as Editor of
the REVIEW?"  Finally it was decided that "L. J. Coppin
is the man." He was elected by such a majority as to show
the confidence of the Conference.
