Davis and the Lincoln Club's Attacked Upon Men of Superior
Rank Charges the Pioneer of Being Democratic.
The colored men who attended
J. H. Davis, the Cent Com. 4th
ward (Rep) comes out in a tirade
against the Pioneer for the stind
taken by that paper in writing
up the recent meeting of the Lin
Davis accuses that paper of
being Democratic, eto. While
wo know Brooks can and will
take care of himself in that par
ticular, we desire to say that
Brooks like curself is not a lead
er and holds no position in the
porty as leader, Davis on the
contrary is some kind of a leader
(chairman, etc) and yet he in a
harangue to a meeting on the
hill advised the people to vote for
a Democrat against a Republi
can, This coming from a leader
is ceitainly to be condemned as
we look to them for advice and
we think that was d n poor ad
vice to come from a leader, and
of course a d n poor leader.
Paul kSmith and Frank Roed
are loyal republicans and have
always stood by the party in
storm and sunshine. Davis at
tacks Smith as being a Federal
officer etc., it is not long since
that Davis wa3 a guard at the
U. S. Jail, and until ho was fired,
he made no complaint but since
that times he has been howiinjr
about the Court House gang. Its
another case of sour grapes. Da

good of the service we pre
sume, as the U. S. Marshull will
keep no ore in service that is not
O. K. in every particular.
The Lincoln club of course has
it in for Dr. Bennett as does its
the Lincoln club meeting, and
who are not members, did so by
invitation and they are among
the best colored people of the
town. Davis and his lilv-whitc
cohorts to the contraiy notwith
standing. Brooks and the men
who went to the Lincoln club are
as loyal republicans as there are
in the United Siates, and even if
they belong to the old gang, have
always been found in the firing
line when the party called them,
They are not engaged in bleed
ing candidates, who are appli
cants for P. O, Can the Lincoln
club cusses say as much?
Some members of the Lincoln
club who got in without knowing
why, are honest; but others are
a rotton set of political cut
throats as ever' went unhung;
and but for the love of right the
Court House gang could send
some of them back from whence

Limited space prevents us
from giving the gentlemen what

But we say here and w-w thac
