A 1177:7 MOVKMUXT.
Already the patilot editor has begun
to rail at tho colored conventidn bo
cnusc it side-tracked general polemies
of public policy and took a header
toward the solution of the nice pioblom.
Despite what maybe said or wiitten
by partisan oiacles, wisdom seems to
liavo guided tho colored leadeis. It is
just, rational and expedient that they
should put usido nil other questions and
Interests in tho intcicsl of solving tho
one question upon tho happy settlement
of which their piosperity, may ho their
perpetuity, depends. In declining to
be led away from the purpose of beck
ing and husbanding tho lights and
Llessings they are entitled to, by tho
disputes over public welfare which are
the1 disputes of parlies, they have taken
an excellent position. Far tiom e.v
pit'&sing nn alien inclination this step
Indicates patriotic piogiess. It Is an
expression of strength, of selfconfi
dei'icc, Of puie eanfestness.
The intelligent listeners to Senator
Ingnlls' iccent speech were struck by thu
paindov it contained. He flr-t made
out n hceiiiiiigly-peifect cao against tho
toiy of assimilation, defined the
while us an invincible conqueror and
the black ns a hopeless citlen, and
then assailed the while Democrats of the
."niitli because they icslsted tho political
development of the negro. If Senator
Ingnlls were logical in that elToit his
peroration should have been a tilbute to
the evidence In tho South of tho
Caucasian genius for conquest which ho
so dramatically pointed as a universal
truth nt tho outset. If Senator Ingnlls
is right; if nature dictates the social and
political supremacy of tho Caucasian,
the Southern Deinociats aro justified in
tveiythiug thtfy may do to prevent tho
ascendancy of tho negro, and Senator
ingnlls in posiug postulates to tho con
trnry Is cm featuring his own leasonlng
It is plain then that ho spoke with ouo
breath ns tho philosopher, and with
another as a politician. In contrast to
what he said let us llstun to one who
has delved deeply Into the subject; ouo
who has studied It practically and not
abstractly. "Both races," says Major
I.neey," nre alike amenable to social
and church infiuenccs. Ilotl) ate alike
Methodists, Ilapttsts and Piusbyteilnns;
and ccitaihly enn never light on tho
score of religious liillucncc. Tho only
iliffcrenco is caused by politics, and
year by year tho inllucnce for oil of
Iho' political knave who would make
criminal uso of the good Instincts of tho
negro to be a Republican, by teaching
him that oven on local mattcisnu"ccting
his own mntcilal Interests, ho must, per
lorcc, voto for any scoundiel who dubs
himself n Republican, has lessened."
It should bo distinctly borne In mind
that uo disagreement, no reslsteneo, is
originated by tho negro. Compared
with the white, ho is as tho child to the
parent. Ho is going to survive or per
JbhJ'JBiprove or (Icgeneintc, by t&0 tui
tion we give, by the examples wo set
him. As yr-t lit tho slmplo nml onto
tlonnl ttngo of human growth ho l-i
Slflttl with the finest Imitative- Instinct.
As time nrodliectod till they crystal
lire In great power of reason, which
shall find cxpicsslon In tho action or
movement of nny considerable mass of
his people, the Caucasian will bo blamed
or pinlsul In history. If ho Is opposed
and leptesscd by tho cynicism now
actuating both putles, ho must himself
become cynical In time. Then It will
be Homo and the barbarians over again.
-If humane considerations mo allowed
to operate In his behalf, his origin and
color cannot piovenl htm from becom
ing u useful and p.itilotlc Itopubllcin.
He Is not wilfully giogarlous, ns Sena
tor Ingnlls would have us believe.
What wo call tho foclal laws force him
Into communal existence. Ho prefers
association with tho whites, and none
deny It to him so obstinately as llio
Northern Republicans, who poso as his
rulecmois. In parts of the South, mid
partlculaily In Yliglnlo, as Major
I.neey says, tho tolerance toward him
is patriarchal and holpful. In tho
North ho Is taught to tho fullest extent
tho lesson of political and social cruelty.
Soiithcrncis who shut him out
fiom tho bnllot box because- ho would
vote, out of his misplaced gratitude,
blindly nnd Ignoiantly, arc guilty of
no more malignity than tho ex-aboll-tlonlsts
and Republicans practice In de
nying him tho civil lights they have
framed ns laws only to violate thorn.
That ho begins to see tho exact relation
ho occupies townid all the whites in
fact, has been made appucnt by the do-
HberAtions of this convention. That ho
discerns the need of education in Us
broadest sense, as tho means of intelli
gently exacting the rights tho rebellion
made possible, gives liopo that ho will
attain to something tho politicians
would never voluntnilly giant him.
Since Amcilcnn parties deem It expo
dient to borrow anxiety from tho homo
liile agitation In Knglnnd, nnd to coun
tenance, in localities, tho preservation
of tho Gciman tongue hi public schools,
out of their deep concern for tho wcl
fnic of constituencies, it is barely pos
sible that tho negroes, once they assert
tho independence of their wishes, will

to be made for monopolistic purposes
these tactics have been in uso; nnd tho
enormous fortunes of tho fow, ns well ns
tho Increased po erty of the many, attest
the success of this plan.
It is strnngo that the great body of

Sir Charles Dilko, though in political
eclipse, is worth giinsr car to, foi ho Is
certainly shoulder to shoulder with Mr.
Gladstone as-an economist, a thinker nnd
a man of nllnirs. "Whatever may bo
tho outcomo of the congicss," says ho,
referring to tho proposal of tho German
Dinperor, "It will be hut ono step iutho
march toward tho geneial Socialistic
uphcaal which Iiegaidas inevitable.
In fifty or a hundred yearsourdescend
nnts will look upon tho present organ

AVhatever may bo thought or stttd In
ilcrhton of Socialism it must bo ad
mitted that tho several christianized
nations of the wbrld nro rustling on
toward its le.itlaliou, or to sonto now
political equilibrium which tho revolu
tion it Inspires will produce. It should
ho remembered that Socialism ts no
modern German outgrowth. Its doc
trines wero expounded In tho Holy
Laud nnd Inernfted mi tho political
maxims of thu French revolution.

Thus fnr foclnllsm has been little
moio than a beautiful theory, how
ever, slnco its stiuctuio musk rest on
that (quality and fraternity to which
Democracy pretends, but has novcr, as
yet, pinqtlced. It springs from nn in
unto sense of right, Intended by the
laws of resistance to become just as
powerful as that which, growing Into
frenzy, upset kings nnd overturned re
ligious despotisms in tho past. Men
cannot safely graut to each other an
equal Intcicst In the belongings and
needs of life, whllo thoy go on strug
gling to prove unequal powers for ap
propriating them. Tho concession, in
theory, that men nro equal, founded on
tho Immortality of tho soul, implies tho
intention of tho Supremo Intelligence
that thoy shall be cquul in tho material
relations nnd benefits of life. When
this truth has taken possession of tho
masses, political forms that confer su
perior blessings upon tho fow who aro
skilled In making ends justify means
must be swept away, perhaps by blood.
At iast Tin: grip has been run down to
Its primal cause. A learned and traveled
Writer asserts that the Turks, of all tho peo
ple In Tiuropc, wero tho only ones to escape
the 0l6caso; and he thinks It Is because
tucy do not tnko oft their hats to ladles on
tho street. It ts, therefore, because we other
peoplo do tako oil our liats that we havo
tbogifp. This probably explains why tho
)oung lady who docs not take oft her big,
big hat never gets grip enough to keep her
from a theatrical performance.

not nfrtiidtooxpicss an opinion on the
subject, were delighted lo find public
attention called to the unfair manner
in which they allege they have been
According to tho statements of these
men the experiment of establishing a
gun iactory nt tho Navy Yard has not
been an unqualified success under tho
superintendence of Mr. Folger. In a.
number of instances, after much valu
able tlmo and material has been used
In order to produce guns, the result hrts
been masses of metal fit only to be sold
to a junk dealer.
A number of steel six-Inch and at
least two eight-inch guns aro said to
havo been utterly spoiled in tho course
of manufacture owing to Mr. Folgor's
hnvlng interfered with tho operations
of the e.pcit mechanics employed in
the cun shop.
As an Instanco of tho manner in
which ho achieved this result it isic
Intcd that a short tlmo ago, when an
eight-inch jacket was being fitted to the
tubo of a gun, Mr. Folger undertook to
superintend tho operation. Tho man
ner in which this work Is accomplished
is as follows:
Tho tube Is placed In an upright po
sition, nnd tho jacket, after having been
heated to a proper degree, Is lowered
over it. When it reaches tho proper
point cold water is dashed over It.
causing it to contract and thus adhere
tightly to the tube. 'On this occasion,
ns tljo jacket was being lowered, Chailes
G. Robinson, tho expert mechanic in
charge of the work, observed that it was
rapidly cooling nud would stick before
reaching tho desired point. He there
fore gave an order to hoist tho jacket
up again, but Mr.Folgcr countermanded
this and ordered tho men to lower
away, tho result being just as Mr. Rob
Inson had foicsccn.
Tho course usually pursued when au
accident of this kind happens, is to
pour molten metal mound the jacket
until It becomes sufficiently heated to
expand ncain, when it Is easily re
moved. Mr. Folger, however, chose
another method of accomplishing the
removal of the jacket, and oidcieet the
men to cut It off tho tube. It was rep
resented to him that if this w as done
the enoimous mass of metal, weighing
several thousand pounds, would be
wnsted. He replied that it woull be
used for breech plugs, and his order
was executed. It then piovcd that the
metal was not suitable for biceeh plugs,
and it was thrown aside to go into
Uncle Sam's profit and loss account.
Metal of tho kind used for gun jackets
ts very expensive, owing to tuo pecu
liarly' severe tests which it must bo
capable of undergoing.
Since then nnother eight-inch jacket,
stuck in the samo manner, and, al
though everybody about tho shop saw
that ilr. Folger had made a gravo mis
take in oulcilng the first one cut, he,
rather than acknowledge that he was in
the wrong, ordered tho same process to
be repeated. In this connection it is
a significant fact that, immediately
after Mr. Folgor's fiist blunder with
tho eight-inch jacket, the wages of
Mr. Robinson, tlie mechanic In charge
of the onoiatlon, weio incieascd fiom
$3.20 to $4 a day, since when he has
been careful not to talk about the
As Tim Cnmo dcsiics to give both
sides of the story when chaigcs me

porters culled upon Mr. Folger last
evening to ascertain whether ho had
any statement to make regarding the
allegations that have been made against
him. That gentleman, however, de
clined to discuss the matter, beyond
giving a geneial denial tp the charges,
which he characterized as absuid and
Insnlicd by a man who felt sore at
being discharged from tho yard for ab
senting himself too frequently from
