The inconsistent prejudice against
color which exists in this country, that
boasts of its freedom for all mankind,
"would be really amusing if it was not so
obnoxious to those upon horn its effects

some idea of the extent of its existence
in the metropolis of this country:
"Usually "good social circles" are all

and diligently sought for in maniage.

Chicago, Sept. 26, 18S8.
To my Fellow Citizens of the Third Sen
For the first time in the history of my
life, I find myself the nominee of a rep
presentative political body, and soliciting
vour suffrage in the pending contest
I do not do so as a blind partisian of eithei
of the old parries. Having been nomi
nated by the United Labor partv, sub
mit my claims to the inteligent indepen
dent voters of this district, believing that
the time has come when the people of
our race can no longer look to the Repub
lican party for that representative posi
tion which by our numbers, our inteli
gence and our heretofore blind devotion
we have followed that party thron-h
adversity as well as prospeiity. While I
have ever been an ardent and devoted
member of the Republican party, I believe
the time hus come when we must *y our
conduct, teach them that they do not own
us body and soul. While duly recogniz
ing the obligation we are under to that
party for the emancipation of
from human bondage, I also recognize the
the fact that we have not received that
recognition by the members of the Repub"
hcan party of this county that our large
vote, mainly cast as a solid body was en
titled to. In the last county convention
we were not only not recognized by giv
ing one of our race the nomination as
une of the fifteen. County Commissioners
but in spite of the unanimous protest of
delegates, a man was nominated for the
office of Coroner of this county, who by
his official action has made himself obnox.
ious to every member of our race.
As we can not get justice from the
Republican party and do not evpect it (or
do we want it) from the Democrats, we
are hapily in a position to join with our
fellow citizens of the Labor paity. If
elected to the next General Assembly, I
shall do all in my power to support all
measures that in. my judgement may
conduce to the material nrospenty
of our state among which shall be
first, a curtailment of the present extrav
agant waste of the revenue of the state,
Second, to establish such a system of
police protection, as will do away with
the present outrageous system of private
hirelings, as the Pinkerton and other
detective systems. Third, to prevent chil
dren under fifteen being employed
Fourth, to enforce the law, to compel all
paients to send their children to school.
Fifth, The absolute abolition of the con
tract labor system.
Recognizing that in a national canvas
we have no chance, 1 do think that we
can place ourselves in such a position in
this state, that we may be able to hold
the balance of power between the ruling
parties, and then demand such reforms on
behalf of the wage workers of this state,
both whtte and black, as our numbeis
entitle us to. In this spirit I submit my
self to jour kind consideration, and re
spectfully solicit your votes.

The pair had stopped before the royal
feather cloak from the Sandwich Islands
that is spread out fan-shaped in a ase
in the National Museum. This cloak is
computed to have cost in labor $1,000,-
000. The native name for it is mams.
In the days when a Hawaiian beau oi
belle wanted little clothing-, but wanted
that gorgeously colored, this cloak oi
mantle would have been considered oi
more value, aesthetically and intrin
sically, than a shipload of Worth cos
tumes, and its happy possessor might
truly be said to be in high feather.
Since the natives have adopted wide
trousers, lawn-tennis shirts and four-in
hand ties, its value lies chiefly in the
traditions that surround it. The man
tle, which is semi-circular, is 4 feet
long or deep, and it is 11 1-2 feet wide
at the bottom and 23 inches at the top
where it goes around the neck. The
entire outer surface is made of feathers
of fine texture, giving the whole the
appearance of plush. The prevailing
colors are red and yjllow or orange
The body is decorated with large fig
ures, crescent-shaped, of either red oi
yellow feathers. The upper and lat
eral borders are corded and decorated
with alternate tufts of red, black and
A legend on a label states that this
feather cloak formerly belonged
to Kehuarkalani, one of the high
est chiefs of the Sandwich Islands.
After the abolition of idolatry in
1819 that chief rebelled against the
reigning king and attempted to re-estab
lish the ancient religions. A sanguin
ary battle was fought and Kehuarkalani
was slain, and this cloak, which
he then had on, fell into the
hands of the conquerors and
thus became the property of King
Kemehameha, by whom it was present
ed to Captain J. H. Aulick, U. S. N..
in 1841. The cloak is now the property
of Captain Aulick's grandson, Rich
mond Ogston Aulick, who deposited il
in the National Museum. The greal
value of the cloak is due to the long
time required to secure the feathers thai
compose it and to manufacture the
The foundation is a net-work of olona
or native hemp, and to it are attachec
by fine thread of the same material the
feathers of birds found only in the
Hawaiian Islands, and very rare there.
Recent writers have declared that the
bird is now extinct. The feathers are
woven in so as to lap each other anc
lie flat, forming a smooth, plush-like
surface. The inner surface is withou
lining and shows the olona net-worl
and the quill-ends of the feathers. Th(
cord of the upper margin is prolong ec
so as to serve as a fastening at the
throat. The yellow feathers are ob
tained from the Oo or TJho, and as stat
ed, are of great value, as the bird is
rare, very shy and difficult to capture
and it has but a very small tuft of these
feathers upon each shoulder. The
black feathers are from the head anc
back of the same birdits genera
plumage being a glossy black. The Oc
is caught alive by means of bird lime
the yellow feathers are then plucked
and the bird released. The red feathers
are fr om the bo dy and neck of the Dre
panis Coccinea, the most abundant bird
of the Sandwich Islands.
The Hawaiian Spectator, a newspaper
published in 1839, refers to this, or a
similar mantle, as follows. "Kaw
keauli has the mams, or feather war
cloak of his father, Te-Meha-Meha. It
was not completed until his reign, hav
ing occupied eight preceding .ones in its
fabrication. A piece of nankeen,
valued at one dollar and a half, was
formerly the price of five of the yellow
feathers. By this estimate the value of
the cloak wou ld equal that of the pure st
diamonds in several of the European
regalia, and, including the price of the
feathers, not less than a million dollars'
worth of labor was expended upon it at
the present rate of computing wages."
A bunch of the yellow feathers called
hulu was received by the king from his
subjects in payment of a poll tax, and
it required many years to collect the':
material and manufacture one of these
mantles. Until recent years these
mantles were the royal robes of state
and considered the principal treasures
of the crown, but European clothing
has entirely superseded them and they
are not now manufactured. A beauti
ful head-dress for women, called leis,
was made of these feathers.
Another authority states that two)
yellow feathers only are obtained from I
each Oo, and these are found under the
wings. When the much-prized feathers
are plucked the bird is set at liberty.
The price of the feathers, according to
this authority, was one dollar and a half
for three, and the time occupied in
making the cloak was estimated from
fifty to one hundred years.Washington
