Under the Heading, "The Color Line
he Orgonian of Jan. 15, Publishe at
Portland, Ore., by Russell Harrison, a
Son of the President, has the Fo l
lowing Common-Sense Editorial.
In the prizefight at New Orleans yes
terday, the color line was drawn against
admission of Peter Jackson, the Negro
champion of Australia, and the Colored
horse jockeys of the New Orleans race
track. A Colored Mississippi politician
of ofisiderable prominence was also
warned that he would be excluded if he
sought admission. This is a new revela
tion of apot'atastasis, or progress back
wards. Hitherto the color line has been
drawn among American men. Now it is
drawn among American brutes. The
"gentlemen" prizefighter, foisooth! has
come to the front. The next evolution
will be the rebellion ot white convicts
against association with criminals of
color. Why not? Every prizefighter is
an outlaw in every state in this Union,
ave Texas and California, and every
prizefighter therefore is liable, the mo
ment he passes from the passive to the
active s*ate, to become a convict. The
heroes of the last great prizefight, Sulli
\an and Kilrain, became convicts under
the law of Mississippi and Dempsey and
Fnzsimmons, with all their abettors
among the spectators, are liable to be
come convicts under the laws of Louitd

becaue of his inability to obtain, through
his color, a situation for which his edu
cation fitted him. The Negro who does
his best to rise, cannot in America, North
or South, rise high enough to escape the
social jail bounds of the color line. On
the other hand, the Negro, who puts
honorable ambition behind him and, in
stead of trying to rise, seeks to fall, meets
the same dismal fate. He cannot dive
deep enough in the social mire at the
bottom of society to escape the color line
in America. There is not a filthy, inso

description of white woman, is free to

This exclusion and insult does not rest
upon any other defense than what is
termed "The aristocracy of skin," an
aristocracy that absolutely has no exist
ence in the Christian world outside of the
United States That it should exist at the
South is not remarkable. That it should
have any public defender at the North is
proof of the average vulgarity and bru
tality of our civilization. The cruel in
lus'ice of this aristocracy of skin is ex
cused by some upon the untenable plea
that the Negro seeks social equality.
The plea is insincere because it is ab
surd. The Negro knows, what every
sane white knows, that social equality is
self-regulating, and not subject to the
laws of church or state. A man might
frequent the "best society" of New York
city and yet be excluded from "the best
society" of England. A man might fre
quent the "best society" of England and
yet get no welcome from the best society
in America. An American naval officer
of no particular public or private wortq
often secures asocial recognition abroad
that would never be offerred an Ameri
can gentleman and Statesman, like
Conklmg, Edmutids or John Sherman.
The usages of society make a man a

Social equality and civil rights are sep
arate and distinct, and to pretend that
they belong to the same province is
either dense ignorance or disingenuous
ness. Civil laws and social usages are as
far apart as the poles. To charge the
Negro with demanding social equality
because be asks to be protected in the
exercise of the rights and immunities
that have been granted him as a citizen,
is a base attempt to befog the discussion
of the race question, The friends of
Negro elevation, NoHh and South, have
always positively maintained that while
civil rights was a question of law, social
equality was a question of choice To ar

Paternity of a Colored Woman's
Child and Abducts It.
The application made at St. Louis Four
Courts Tuesday morning for a warrant
charging abduction, brought to light a
strange story which places a well-known
business man in a decidedly peculiar
light. The applicant was Mrs. Johanna
Reaper, an old Colored woman living at
110 -outh Eighth street. The business
man is George H. Lueking, head book
keeper for the Kimpel Carriage and
Wagon Manufacturing Co., 218 Spruce
street. The case is now under advise
Mrs. Reaper is given a good name by
her neighbors, who say she is a hard
working and honest woman. She had a
daughter, Lilhe Reape, a bright mulatto
who was noted among her associates as
a most beautiful girl. Her fair com
plexion gave her a standing among the
whiteB by whom she was employed, and
as it has proven, eventually led to her
nEE RUIN AND DEATH.
Two -"ears ago Lillie was 23 years old
and had made an honest living as a
waitress in various down town restaurants
and as nurse in prominent families. On
March 12, 1889, she gave birth to a girl
babe at her mother's home. She stead
fastly refused to give her broken-hearted
old mother the slightest clew as to the
identity of the little one's father and
died four weeks ago without revealing
the secret of her shame.
THE MOTHER'S SEABC H.
Since the birth of the babe Mrs. Reap
er noticed that a well-dressed and well
educated white man was occasionally to
be seen in her daughter's company.
Then, as the babe grew older, she saw
that its skin was even fairer than that of
its mother. Coupling these facts she ar
rived at a conclusion as to the little one's
parentage, but could never make her
daughter acknowledge the truth of this
surmise. When the young mother
passed away Mrs. Reaper kept the child
insisting that several times before her
breathed her last she requested that she
keep the babe.
A few days after her daughter's funeral
Mrs. Reaper received a cell from the
white man who had visited the deceased.
The stranger introduced himself as
George H. Lueking and said he was the
father if Lilhe Reaper's babe. He ad
mitted that there had been no marriage
ceremony to legitimatize the offspring,
excusing his conduct in this regard by
pleading that he was a married man
even at the time the babe was born.
He first asked to be allowed to take the
little one away and raise it In his family.
Mrs. Reaper refused to allow it out of
her possession. He then made the
proposition that the grandmother also
live at his house and take care of the
babe. Mrs. Reaper refused to take any
such action. Lueking then left. Twice
he returned to renew his demandB for
the child, and as often he was refused
possession of the little one. Last Satur
day evening Lueking went to Mrs Reap
er's house and took the babe away by

REV. HARTZELL, D.D.I
Interesting Sketch of the Life and Pub- I
Of Ee Joseph C. Hartzell, D., Secre
tary "of the Freedm's Aid and South
ern Educational SocietyA True
Friend of the Race.
Rev. Joseph C. Hartzell, D. D., was
born on a farm in Illinois of good Meth
odist parentage, June 1st, 1842. He was
converted when a boy, and felt from the
first that his life work was to be that of
a christian minister. Beginning at six
teen, he gave eleven years to educating
himself, relying entirely upon his own
efforts for support. In 1868 he complet
ed a classical course in Illinois Wesleyan
University, and a Theological course In
Garrett Biblical -Institute, taking the
degrees, A. B. and B. D. In 1875 he re
ceived the degree D. D., from Illinois
Wesleyan University and from Allegany
College. He joined Central Illinois Con
ference in the fall of 1868, and was sta
tioned at Pekin, 111. In 1869 he married
Miss Jennie Culver, of Chicago, and in
February of the following year was trans
ferred to New Orleans, where for three
years he was pastor of St. Charles Ave*
nue Church. During the nine years fol
lowing he was Presiding Elder on New
Orleans and adjacent districts, and was
for three years a member of the public
school board in New Orleans, taking
prominent part in developing the public
schools in that city. He had the yellow
fever in New-Orleans in 1870, and chol
era on Bayou Teche, La., in 1873. In
the latter year he began the publication
of the South-Western Christian Advocate
in New Orleans and carried it as a pri
vate enterprise until its adoption by the
General Conference in 1876. He was its
editor until Feb. 1881, when he resigned
to become Assistant Corresponding Sec
retary of the Freedmen'a Aid and South
ern Education Society. The General
Conference of 1888, elected him secre
tary of this society, which position he
holds today. Dr. Hartzell is a hard work
er and notwithstanding the society which
he represents has grown to be one of the
largest and most important and difficult
benevolent societies of Protestant Chris
tianity, he has shown himself equal to
every emergency, manifesting skill and
leadership in all the affairs committed to
his office. Methbdism has many strong
men and Dr. Hartzell uny be fitly class
ed among the strong and most useful.
