There is an aspect of the present de
mand for free trade Inch seems to have
been too generally overlooked by those
voters inclined to lend their voices and
ballots to its promotion. This is the
studied, persistent eftbit to prejudice
the public mind against the very idea of
protection. Not only is the policy as
commonly understood subjected to mis
representation, but the woid itself is
held up to derision. Protection is fre
quently used as synonymous with extor
tion, and in mau,v instances piotertive
legislation is denounced as robbeijr.
The result of this must be that when, if
ever, protection to manufactures is bro
ken down, its assailants, if consistent,
will next attack stone othei of the sev
eral forms of protection.
The exclusive right extended by pat
ent laws to the inventor w-ho has devised
the machinery^^br manufacturing is a
more radical protection than is accorded
by any schedule of existing tariff laws.
The inventor isab,aolutely shielded from
competition during the life of his patent
and even beyond that period provision
is made for its extention. This protec
tion is not e-yen confined to American
citizens, but is extended to aliens as
well. The wiitej.ofa book, the com
poser of a song, tije proprietor of a trade
mark, the designer of a picture, are ac
corded a monopoly of use and sale in
which they are protected by all the
power of law enforced by the machinery
of the federal courts. Not only is pro
tection thus extended to the inventor,
designer and author, but to whomsoever
lie may choose to invest with his prerog
ative the protection is transferable,
and can be made a matter of merchan
dise. These are forms of protection that
no advocate of "unfettered trade" can
Thure is anothei- aspect of protection
which appeals diwectly to a large and
influential class of bur citizens. Scarce
ly a village in the countiv peimits a
peddler or othei 'itinerant trader to
prosecute business within its limits with
out first paying for such privilege. Any
other policy would be injustice to resi
dent tradesmen whose property is taxed
for the suppoit of municipal government
The free trader, whb demands that for
eigners shall be permitted to bring their
wares into the markets of the United
States without taiiff, will be forced to
claim for his fellow countrymen the
privilege to sell without tax wheiever
he can find customers.
The theorists wtio now so loudly in
veigh against what, they term the "priv
ileged classes," au'dlso roundly denounce
the policy of protection, will be forced
by the inevitable logic of consistency to
attack the existing ^protection of invent
ors, authors, designers, and eventually
all municipal regulations imposing taxes
for privileges of trade. With them con
sistency now \vait3fpn expediency, in the
hope of finding present allies among the
future victims of their unpatriotic poli
cy. No sooner will they have secured
the surrender of one. tenet of the pro
tective policy under which our country
has made its phenominal progress, than
their attacks may be looked for at some
other point. To stop short of this will
be to incur the ignominy of demanding
in the inter* at of,/oreigners prjvitegeg
of trade they are Utowilling to accord to
their own fellow-cjMzena.

The only safe course is to overwhelm

train of evils certain to follow in its
On last Thursday, a neat six column
folio entitled "The Afro Independent"
made its initial bow to the newspaper
world. Mr. Charles S Sweed is Mana
ging Editor Mr. W. Davis, Business
Manages Messrs. W. H. Brown, and W.
J. Singleton, City Editors. As the title
would lead one to infer, the political
policy of the paper is to be "independ-
ent," whatever that means. We have
noticed that all the so-called "independ
ent" papers controlled by Colored men,
find only something to abuse in the Re
publican party and something to laud in
the Democratic party. The "Afro Inde
pendent" begins in the same way. An
other thing these independent sheets
do, and that is, they assail the leading
Colored men of the country in this the
new paper also follows and assails Hon.
Frederick Douglass and John M. Lang
ston who have been honored and res
pected long befoie the editor of the
"Afro Independent" was born, and who
today are the peers of any men of the
country in point of intelligence and mor
al woith. The editors of the "Independ
ent" are, excepting Mr. Brown, new
comers in St. Paul and are out for the
main chance. The political plums are
in sight and they hope to gather in a few
of them, but the policy of the paper will
not be tolerated by the best classes of
the Colored people in whose interest
they claim to be working, and their cir
culation will be veiy limited among them
unless the papei is sent to them free.
We can see no good foi the Colored man
in the Democratic party, and while
there are many things in the Republi
can party we condemn, we know of no
bettei one to affiliate with. We will en
deavor to correct the errors existing in
the Republican party but not by leaving
it to go into one that is infinitely worse.
The so-called "independence" of Col
ored joui nahsts is very slightly disguised
Democracy. We'll none of it. Neither
will the good Coloied citizens of St
Roomers and Boarders.

Last Friday evening a number of ladies
and gentlemen happened in at the hand

who has been her guest for the past two
weeks. The evening was passed very
pleasantly until a late hour, Mrs. Lyles

present but was equal to the emergency
and furnished some delightful refresh

pitable hostess that she is, to perfection.
Those present were: Mr. and Mrs. Phil

The First Ward Republican club had a
grand rally at their hall on Payne .Ave.
last Tuesday night. There was large

the meeting. Ilis speech was replete
with wisdom and wit he was followed
by D. Reese, Esq who made one of
his usually enthusiastic and logical ad
dresses, after which the meeting ad
journed with three cheers for Harrison
and Morton. The Fust Ward club is
the banner club of the city.

Fifth and Minnesota sheets next Tues

Col. A. A. Jones of Indianapolis, has
been engaged to deliver an address and
there will also be othei speeches made
by good speakers. Jtis the desire of
the managers of the club to make the
club what it should be, and in Older to
do so every man who has the interests
of the race at heart should come out
Wednesday night to hear Col. Jones
and join the club, Come early as speak

singers, a grand orchestra and military

nights of the week and at Wednesday
matinee. The last half of the week will
be filled by Veiona Jaibeau and her
own select comedy company in her
great success "Starlight." The Grand
has been so changed that the old pa
trons will haraly know the place. The
decorations are beautiful and everything
will be first-class as usual.
The meeting of the Garnett Club last
Monday night did not pan out so veiy
well. Taking all together there was
enough to have held an interesting meet
ing if all had remained, but peisons
came, and because the hall was not
crowded they tu'rned and left. As the
Garrett Club is the only Colored club in
the city, it seenig that it could be'made
a credit to the people by a little aptivity
on the pait of those mos-t interested ju
political affairs. I is hoped that more
interest will be shown and that the men
will turn out at the meetings. I is the,
intention of the members to organize^
drum corps and to procure uniforms,!
and then they can show that the Colored^
people are awake to their interests as
much so as other classes of citizens.
Let this matter be agitated. There is
not a club in the city that is uniformed
would it not be a great thing for the
Garnett Club to be the first to appear in

which the natives call "The Herb of Proph-

the herb, in a few moments sinks into a

THE vineyards the vicinity of Varna,
Bulgaria, have been attacked by a new kind
of an insect pest called the Kara terzi. or
the black tailor," an appellation which is
supposed to indicate its appearance and
habits. It is described as an adipose black
beetle, measuring about three-fourths of an
inch in body-length, and furnished with a
short pair of shears, with these, in the
mornings of April and May, it cuts off the
young vine shoots, which it leaves on the
ground until they arc parched by the sun,
when it drags them into tho recesses of its
deep and tunneled hole, generally situated
at the foot of tho plant attacked.
THE dugong, a species of whale taken in
large numbers at Queensland, has probably
furnished the slender basis of fact upon
which the mermaid and merman stories are
founded. It is about eight to twenty feet in

humanlike head, with hair resembling a

eaten and is said to have the flavor of beef,
