BLACK AND WHITE IN AFRICA. THE ETHIOPIAN ORDER. Ethiopianism, which is the cause of so much anxiety just now in South Africa, started four- teen years ago among the natives employed in the Johannesburg mines. Its root idea, says the Westminster Gazette. was a black Church for black men. But. like most other Churches. Ethiopianism has had its great schism. In Cape Colony half the Ethiopians have accepted the creed of the Anglican Church and become a branch of it under the title of the Ethiopian Order. They have been allowed to remain a separate organi- sation. independent of the Church parishes and of the missions, with teachers and catechists of their own. under the Rev. J. M. Dwane, an educated Amaxosa Kaffir, who has been ap- pointed Provincial of the Order. But the other half rebelled, and affiliated themselves to an American negro body, the A.M.E., or African Methodist Episcopal Church, which is absolutely independent of the whites, and possesses not only negro clergy but negro bishops, and has done so for the last eighty years. Unfortunately the A.M.E. shares to the full the rancorous feeling against the whites which is now rampant in black America, and such a spirit of insolent defi- ance has been imported into too many of the Ethiopian congregations of South Africa that we can hardly wonder if it arouses suspicion in the ruling race.
