SATURDAY, NOVEMBER, 17, 1888.
During the four years that the Demo
crats have had control of this govern
ment they have been constantly making
overtures to the Colored people
to join their ranks. They however
made but little headway, as the princi
ples of Republicanism were so deeply
instilled in the minds of Colored men
generally that all their specious argu
ments could not remove them. True,
there were a few unprincipled creatures
among us, who, from seliish motives,
advocated Democratic doctrine, and en
deavoied to lead their biothern into the
Democratic fold but they made very
few Democrats. The pnnciples of the
Republican party have been all right all
along, but the pnuciples of the leadeis
of the party, in \arious localities, have
heen all wrong, so far as the Colored
people are concerned, and therein lies
the cause foi the disaftection "v\hieli has
existed, and which semi-occasionally
cropped out. There never have been
more enthusiastic, moie earnest, more
faithful and efficient political norkeisin
the party, than the Colored members,
They know how faithful and true they
have been, despite the allurements, the
threats and the promises of Democrats,
and, they know how little recognition
in the way of honors and emoluments
such as every othei nationality and
class receiveaxe accorded to them.
They know that the laborer is worthy
of his hire. They know that they la-
bored long, labored faithfully, labored
well, but when pay day came they re-
ceived nothing or next to nothing.
Here, in the g eat Republican State of
Minnesota, when nominations for office
are to be made, though the Colored peo
ple outnumber some other classes or
nationalities of its cosmopolitan popula
tion, their just claims to lecognition are
never taken into consideration but the
utmost care is observed in placating all
other classes, by placing candidates of
the various nationalities on the tickets
to be voted for. N one of us has yet
aspired to the candidacy of a state or
county office and none have thought of
running for congress, we are not fools,
and know that we would have no
allow to get elected, even if nominated.
Yet, we have helped to place men of
various nationalities in such positions by
our votes. Had tbe Colored vote been
taken from the vote cast for Gov. McGill
two years ago Dr. Ames would now be
governor of Minnesota. I the election
last Tuesday more than one of the coun
ty officers of Ramsey and Hennepin
counties, where the bulk of the Colored
people reside, owe their election to the
Colored voters. Though we do not yet
expect to be nominated for office we do
expect to receive some substantial recog
nition in the distribution of the ap
pointive offices. Out of many hundreds,
if not thousands, of minor positions in
the state, there are but six Colored peo
ple who hold positions under the state
jmd county governments, one clerk,
two copyists, three assistant janitors.
This failure to do the square thing by
us, on the part of our Republican
friends, to whose interests we have ever
proved true, is the cause of dissatisfac
tion which became- quite deeeroable if
not formidable in the recent campaign
now so gloriously ended. The Republi
can leaders should remember that the
quarter of a century through which we
have passed, since the birth of the Re
publican party and the striking of the
shackles from our limbs, has furnished
us with opportunities to acquire knowl
edge and we think for ourselves. One
of the strongest arguments made by the
Democrats was "come over to us, we
will do more for you than the Republi
cans will" and judging from past ex
periences, the promise seemed so easy
offullfillmentthat many Colored men
who AY ere tired of receiving only
promises from Republicans year after
year, fel* inclined to try the Democrats.
Hon. Edmund Rice, while mayor of St.
Paul, appointed several Colored men on
the police force and in the fire depart
ment, and the gratitude of the Colored
people know no bounds, Two years
ago they expressed it by a large number
of votes to send him to congress, and on
and befoie Nov. (i it took the strongest
kind of argjvuxients to indni.e some of
tliem to vote for the gallant Capt. Snider.
Republicans, you who have been elected
to oflice, you for whom Colored men
votedand thanks to the efficient work
of Colored men at the polls, there weie
notacoipoialsguaid uhoditl not \otefor
Republicansyou have now the oppor
tunity to show *lour appreciation of
their fealty, ou have the oppoitunitv
to bind them to you by the strong ties
of gratitude for which they are charac
teristic, by giving them a full, fair shaie
of rebpertable, appointive positions.
Will you do it? We await your verdict.
One of the things we regret in regard
to the recent political cyclone is, that
Hon. John M. Langston will have to
contest for his seat in the next congress.
However as his contest will come before
a Republican House he doubtless will
be seated, as he should be.
The cabinet maker is abroad in the
land and there is lots of him. "We
thought President Harrison would have
the pir\ liege of selecting his cabinet, but
it seems that a great many self conse
quential folks wish to take the iob off
In accordance with the usual custom
President Cleveland has issued his
Thanksgiving proclamation. Republi
cans will have much to be thankful for
but how about poor Grovei? Ho may
only thank God that it was no worse.
The territories that have been knock-
ing for admission at the door of the
Union will now be promptly admitted,
and Republican supremacy in tho
councils of the Nation will be indefinate
We may now exnect to see Colored
Republican newspapers springing up all
over the country, and the few Demo
cratic ones sneak into oblivion. Some
of the latter are already gone.

But among the mothers and daughters
of St. Paul none give better evidence ot
the presence of this maternal and filial
devotion than do Mis. James Banister
ana her daughter MissEllaB. Smith they
seemto use a slang phrase"mashed"
on each other. They seem more like
sisters than mother and daughter, and
the fullest and freest confidence is
maintained between them, and a move
is seldom made by one that the other is
not cognizant of. and consulted in refer
ence thereto. A pleasant little episode
occurred last Tuesday evening in which
the established rule was suspended.
Tuesday was the eighth anniversary of
tbe marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Banister,
and Miss Smith conceive! the idea of
tendering a surprise to her mother and
stepfather in commemoration of the
event. For several days prior she had
quietly proceeded to invite a few of their
friends to be present on Tuesday eve
ning, and while father and mother were
out witnessing the great Republican
parade the guests arrived, and when they
retun.ed they found the house filie
To say they were surprised would but
mildly state the case, they weie com
pletely "paralized," they did not under
stand it at all. They however oon ac
cepted the situation quite gracefully,and
proceeded to play the part ol affable
host and hostess to perfection. About
11 o'clock the supper which had been
donated by friends and prepared by the
daughter, was laid in a laige upstairs
room occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Albert
Robinson, was announced. This proved
to be surprise No. 2, as much for
its elegance and quantity as for the
secret manner in which it was prepared.
After partaking of the toothsome viands
and wishing many returns of the day
the guests took their leave. There were
present: Mr. and Mrs. A. Robinson, Mr.

GOOD AS GOLD.
The seasons go and come
With all their busy hum.
And am growing old.
But still 11 ne'er forget
Amidst life's care and fret,
That maid as good as gold.
And oh! the rides and walks,
The confidential talks
And picnics manifold.
The songs we used to sing
And all tnat sort of thing
No wonder I grew bold.
But how I longed to twealt
That other fellow's beak.
Who oft hfr hand would hold,
While she with roguish art
Would scold and play herpait
This maiden bright as gold.
Now children two or three.
That prattle at her knee,
Their little hearts unfold.
But oh 1 the bitter shame.
They-do not know my name
or I, a.lu wab sold.
Of course the other chap
Was bound to have the snap,
The truth must now be told
For he'd the "oulge" on me.
He had her word, you see,
And that was good as gold.
And seasons come and go
With never-ceasing flow.
And we are growing old.
But still I'll ne'er forget,
Amidst life's cares and fret,
That maid as good as gold.

"Here's a letter for you, Kate
from the agency,1'
callad Ella Harlow,
at the foot of the staircase one morn
Kate was busy putting the bed-room
in order, but she left every thing and
rushed down-stairs three steps at a
"It's a chance for a place at last."
she cried, in great excitement, as she
tore open the envelope and ran her
eyes hastily over tho letter. "A Mrs.
Drew, in Oxfoi'd, Md., wants a gov
erness for her daughter. I'll write to
her at once."
"Oh, dear," said Ella, dismally, "it
makes me wretched to think of your
going so far away, Kate."
"Don't fret till I go," answered Kate.
"There's many a slip betwixt cup and
lip. And you know very weU, Ella,
that I can't find a position here. I can
teach only music and French, and there
are at least six music teachers to every
square, and French is taught in every
school in the place. You might as
well wish we had a fortune, and that 1
need not work at all."
"But you don't know what sort of a
person this Mrs. Drovv is. She may bo
"And she may be very nice. I must
take my chances."
Ella sighed heavily, and wont back
into the dining-room to finish washing
the breakfast dishesa task which
had been interrupted by the postman's
ringand Kate ran up-stairs again,
eager to write her letter.
With the death of Mrs. Harlow had
ceased the small income which had
supported herself and daughters, and
Ella and Kate had to begin the battle
of life in earnest. Foi-tuna.tely they
owned the little house in which they
lived, and an invalid aunt who had
made her home with them for years
paid sufficient board to keep them
from acfal want. But the^ saw the
necessity of going to work at once, and
had lost no time in looking for employ
ment. It had been a long and weary
search.hovvevor, and Ella was deliglited
beyond inoasure when at length she
secured from a photographic gallery
work which she could take home. She
was thus able to give some attention
to household matters, and could be
co Tipany for her aunt.
But poor Kate was less fortunate.
She had never been to school in her
life, for she had been kept at home to
take care of her mother, whose health
from the time Kate was three years old
had been extremely delicate. The ed
ucation Kate had received, therefore,
had been very desultory, and she had
devoted speou/ attention to only mu&ic
Itnd French, for both of which she had
a strong likiug. a*nd could receive val
uable help from her mother, who had
been a teacher of music and languages
for some years before her marriage.
Kate had thought she would ex
perience no difficulty in securing music
pupils at lea*t and planned to have
classes in French if possible, but she
soon found that her castles had been
built in the air.
"I could get a position in Mrs. Se
vier's school if 1 could only teach
mathematics and history," she said to
Ella, on returning one day from a long
tramp in search of employment. "But
I don't know any thiug about either."
So she had at length applied to a
teachers' agency, and now had come
this letter concerning the position with
Mrs. Brew Of eomte, after Kate
sent her letter of inquiry, with which
she inclosed testimonials from various
music and French teachers from whom
she had taken lesions, the girls could
talk of nothing except New Oxford,
and wh en a, letter- arrived bearing tb
post-mark of that town, Kate's hands
trembled so that she could scarcely
"She will give me the position with
a salarv of two hundred dollars and a
home, if I can teach the child mathe
matics as well as French and music!"
"Oh, dear!" sighed Ella.
Hiat cake is aff dough."
"No, don't say that," said Kate, I
caii't give up such a cbance. I is
only the beginning of June why
can't I bttidy up in mathematics? She
doesr.' want me until the second week
*Do yoa think you could?''
I am sure 1 could," answered Kate,
who had plenty of energy and perse
verance. "Three months' hard study
ought to fit me to teach mathematics to
any girl twelve years of age. 3 know
Grace Halpine will help me. $he al
ways had such, a liking: for fisrares. I'll
run io now and ask her."
Grace liveti next door, and was very
f6nd of Kate, so she willingly con
sented to give her lessons, and Kate
wrote to Mrs. Drew that she would
accept the position. How she did
work for the next two months! And
she proved herself an apt scholar.
Grace found it a positive pleasure to
"You'll be able to go into algebra by
August, Kate," sb said. '-I never
saw any one get along so* fast as you
"That is because I have an object in
view," answered Kate. "My going
away depends on my ability to teach
arithmetic, you know."
She and Ella had long talks about
Mrs. Drew, wondering what she was
like, how 6he lived, what family she
had, and how she would treat her pret
"Sometimes when I think of it I can
hardly wait for September to come,"
Kate said. "And then again, I feel
heartsick at the thought of leaving
you and Aunt Mary, and going so far
away among strangers."
"Tou mustii't think of it," said Ella.
As it happened she didn't have to
think of it much longer. Ella came
in one afternoon from taking some
photographs to the gallery, and found
her sister lying on the dining-room
sofa, her face staiued with tears, and a
crumpled letter in her hand.
"What is the matter?" cried Ella.
"The matter is that I'm not to go to
Mrs. Drew's after all," answered Kate,
sitting up. "She writes me a v^ry po
lite note to inform me that her pla,n3
regarding her daughter have been un
expectedly changed by an invitation
the young lady has received to go to
Europe with an uncle for a year's study
in the conservatory at Stuttgart. She
hopes she has not put me to any incon
venience, and remain^ mine sincerely,"
"Outrageous!" said Ella. I never
heard of such an open case of
"Oh, you can't blame her." inter
rupted Kate. "She couldn't really let
the child lose such a chance just be
cause of her engagement to me."
"But it's dreadfully hard on you,"
said Ella. "Think how jou'vo pored
over that horrid arithmetic. All that
"Well, I might have secured another
engagement in those three months,
that's true," said Kate, "but they
haven't been wasted. I've become a
good arithmetician, anyhow."
"And you'll write to the agency
again, 1 suppose," said Ella.
"Yes and the sooner the better,"
answered Kate, bravely, as she rose
and moved toward an old study desk in
the bay window. "People in my situa
tion can't afford the luxury of woe."
A week later the agency sent Kate
notice that a Mrs. Barrington, who
kept a private school in a small town
in Pennsylvania, wanted a tejeher of
music and French. Of course. Kate
wrote to Mrs. Barrington without de
lay, and received in due time a letter
from that lady saying she would em*-
ploy her at a salary of five hundred
dollars if she could teach history as
well as music and French. She em
ployed only two teachers,and 1he work
had to be equally divided Her pre^cir1
toacher of music. French and history
was to be married in December, and
would give up her place the las) week
in November, at which time Kate
would be expected to undertake hei
"This is better than Mrs. Draw's of-
fer," said Kate. "So perhaps it wa
all for the best that I had to give 1 hat
"But you can't teaoh history." said
Ella. "You've merely slctminod ovei
a little of Bancroft andMueaulay.1
"Well, in three months' time i can
do something more than skim them
over,*' rejoined Kate
"Kate! You don't mean to begin an
other course of study!"
"Yes, 1 do. I am going to make
myself competent to take that ^lace.
1 can't afford to lose it
"Oh. why don't they want you to1
teach arithmetic, iustead of history!1
"Probably because tho other teacher
is competent to teach arithmetic, and
ccmH teach history. Now, Ella, don't
discourage me, for I can't stand it.
"Well, I won't but I only hope that
when November comes you won't liud
yourself disappointed again."
Kate began her historical studies
that very day, and soon became d^ply
interested in them.
"I Wonder now I am reading such
solid matter how I ever enjoyed a light
novel," she said. I certainly will
never read another."
She found her intellect greatly
strengthened and improved, and her
study hours were the happiest of the
twenty-four but she was never to put
her knowledge to use in Mrs. Barring
ton's school for she received a letter
late in November announcing the sud
den death of that lady from heart-dis
Her disappointment was very keen,
of course, and for several days she was
plunged in the deepest gloom but she
wouldn't admit that she had wasted

best some way," she said, "and I'll see
it sooner or later, I suppose.''
She saw it very soon indeed. 4o in
January one of the teachers in Mrs.
Sevier's school went out West to keep
house for a widowed brother, and her
place was offered to Kate, with a sal
ary of eight hundred dollars. She was
to teach history and French, and in
struct the junior pupils in arithmetic.
"Nothing could be nicer," enthusi
astic Kate cried when telling her sis
#te and aunt about it. "And the nicest
Uhing about it is that I won't have to

that was bitter, though I never admit

I think the nicest thing about it is
that you deserve U, and have earned
it," said Ella. "And if ever a girl had
reason to be proud of her sister, I have
of you, Kate." And I think she had,
