CITIZEN POLISHING CO./
71[HASELL STREET.
CHARLESTON, S. C.
AMONG the brightest of our exchang
es is the Arkansas Appreciator, edited
by our old college friend, and foimer
editor of the Fisk Herald, J. Wilson
Pettus. Its motto is "The Negro race
the Repubican Party, and the whole
people." We have no doubt but
that with such a motto and such an
able editor the Appreciator will give
the Bear State the light it so much
needs.
SOME of our prominent men make a
great blunder in trying to make the
Negroes believe that they are Republi
cans and at the same time, to give the
impression to our white citizens that
they are Derrocrats. It would be far
better for all concerned to come out
flatfooted either way. The middle
man arouses contempt on one side and
distrust on the other. In the homely
words of Lincoln, "you can fool some
of the people some time; but you can't
fool ali the people all theitime.1 ' Who
hath ears to hear let him hear !
AS WE PREDICTED,
We caHed ujjou The Messen
ger last week to call by name
those men whom it saw fit to
call "broken down politicians."
At the same time, we expressed
our conviction that it could
not answer. Behold how it
again begs the question:
Now, we will gratify the Citizen in
naming our exceptions, if it will
answer the following correctly: At
whose instance was the inspectors of]
hulls and steamboats changed in this
district ? Why is it that colored men
are applying for clerk-ship in the cen
sus office at Washington from this
State are in most instances turned
down ? How is it that tue Democrats
in this State are given supervisorships
of the census instead of Republicans
in this State ?
The above questions have
no more to do with the case
than the flowers that bloom in
the spring. Who is to judge of
the correctness of our answers ?
Only our contemporary, which
by its own confession in anoth
er part of the same article, has
no lot to cast with politics and
the politicians, and is wofully
ignorant of the nature of both,
What more clearly manifests
this than its surprise at com
prises and deals, which Lord
Macauley calls the essence of
politics? We have carried
this controversy far enough to
show up the vagaries of our
contemporary, which are but
the rant and cant of yellow
journalism. We shall truth
fully answer the above ques?
tions, for the benefit of the
citizens of South Carolina,
many of whom are still faith
ful to the tenets of the Re
Sublican Party, and shall some
ay overcome the political
pirates who have filched their
rights. If the Citizen did not
have faith in the ultimate tri-J
umph of right principles, it
would be ready to suspend
publication and leave for an
other clime. But there are
thousands of loyal Negroes who
have never yet bowed the knee
to the Democratic Baal, and by
the splendor of truth they never
shall ! The Citizen lives for
their comfort.
The two Democratic inspec
tors of hulls and steamboats
were removed at the instance
of the administration because
they were not ol the sheepfold.
Republican successors were
appointed at the instance of
the distinguished Republican
Senator Pritchard of .North
Carolina the strongest, advo
cate of Negro suffrage in the
South today. Not a man from
this state, white or black, was
a candidate for either office.
One of the able gentlemen who
is now serving was formeily
?ieputy collector of the Port of
Wilmington, under Hon. J. C.
Dancy, a Negro.
There is not a single Negro
from any state in the Union
yet appointed to the census
office in Washington, If there
is no one yet appointed from
"the President's own" state of
Ohio, what can South Carolina
expect ? appointments will
come to those who bestir them
selves. Political officers are
not given away out of sympa
thy, See?
Under a very wise decision
of the administration, the cen
sus-office is non-partisan. This
is one of the highest acts of
patriotism. The offices of
supervisors of the census are
divided between the two great
parties in every state save Ver
mont and Mississippi.
But what havej all these
things to do with questions
which are purely local ? Next !
SHOULD OLD PREACHERS BE SHOT.
The above is the somewhat
startling caption to an article
in the Eadie's Home Journal
for January from the pen of
Dr. Watson, who is better
known as Ian McLarin. The
writer shows that measures
ought be adopted by all the
chnrches to care for superan
nuated ministers and to retire
them in every case as soon as
!ther mental powers begin to
fail. He suggests that the
dead line in the ministry
should be sixty years.
We cannot say enough in
support of such a praise worthy
suggestion. Both in and out
side of the church leaders
ought usually be retired before
their faculties decay and they
reach a state of ^unconscious
examples of this was John
Sherman, that man of many
gifts, whose many blunders in
the portfolio of state betrayed
the decrepitude of years. The
old minister of the old school
who officiates in many of our
churches, has been responsible,
with his dogmatic theology, for
the loss of many youno; people
with whom he could have no
sympathy. Such mischeif
should be stopped. But how
to prevent it is a problem.
In the first place, the old
men are themselves eternally
opposed to what they may re
gard as a premature retirement.
What an array of scorn and
vituperation they can bring to
bear upon anyone who has the
temerity to suggest that they
are back numbers can be prov
ien Ly bitter experiences. So
far from being shot they are
ready to shoot all the young
"upstarts." Of course those
who will not listen to reason
may find it necessary to yield
to force. This brutal but effec
tive solution will sooner or
later be reached by Charles- ?
ton. ;
It is not urged that the old j
horse should be shot or turned ?
out to die. But he should be :
retired from the track on pro- <
vender as a compensation for ?
past services. Otherwise his i
master will lose many a race. <
Our leaders are but public i
servants. The people are the
masters. 1
Nor would it be fair to say 1
that this rule applies univer- 1
{-ally. There are men who ?
keep the freshness of youth s
amid the growing wisdom of j
age. While they treasure up, <
the pa^t, they never fail to
absorb modern ideas and adorn
the living present. But such
characters are as rare as a dar
lin June.
On the other hand, the arro
gance of "ye olde gentleman,"
is amusing to an extent to
which it is not nettling. Their
impatience of contradiction and
frequent recnrrence to things
that happened when their
?young friends were Deevish
boys are well known.
We know of a prominent
clergyman who preaches that
man never has any sense be
low the age of fifty. Before
that time it is all mere flash
and brilliancy. When young
Bryan pushed the old leaders
of his party aside and captured I
the nomination in that great
speech at Chicago, old politi
cians were not wanting who,
like Senator Harris, either
sulked in their tents, called him
a one dollar man, or grew sar
castic at his expense in other
W3y.
It is fitting that whatever re
forms are introduced regarding
the age limit for active service
should be applied first of all
in our city. There is not
another place on earth where
so many old men hold office
and so many able young men
are treated with indifference
and scorn. Right here is the
secret of our city's apathy.
Old men for council, it is said
land young men for war. Be
that as it may, our present de
mands call for action rather
than aphorisms.
Here a young man must
fight heroically for every inch
of ground. It may be sure that
the victories are sweet, But is
obvious that many have been
tempted to leave and go where
they can win greater success
with half the effort.
To see the successful results
of young men's work look to
the great cities of the South
and West, Chicago, Kansas
City, Nashville, Birmingham,
Atlanta, Memphis, tell their
own story. Let old Charles
ton throw aside the prejudices
of years and receive the bene
fits of new blood and energy,
?o may it be.
THAT ORPHAXAGE VAX.
Among the most influential
Negroes in the state today is
Rev. D. J. Jenkins, the Presi
dent of the Colored Orphan
age. From comparitive ob
scurity, he has elevated him
self to his present bights
through courage, honesty,
strength of will, and reliance
upon God. Ten years ago he
was unknown to the citizens
of Charleston, As pastor of
the Fourth Baptist Church,
one of the minor offshoots of |
this great denomination, the
desire became intensified with
in him to do something to help
the unfortunate children who
were reduced to beggary by
the death of their parents, and
appeared on the streets in such
numbers, shivering from the
blast of winter.
Now this selfsame philan
thropy had enterred the mind
of many an intelligent colored
citizen before. But no one, it
seems had enough of the prac
tical ability about him to be
come a builder.Plans galorewere
formed only to fall into the
disgrace of dismal failure. In
stead of passing the time worn
resolutions etc. he quietly
gathered a few of the most
wretched street Arabs and
undertook to provide for their
needs. He thus put himself
into a position to demand help.
People with a generous turn
are seldom ready to look
askance at those who put forth
an effort to themselves. His
genius for persistent agitation
stood him in good stead. In
asking favors for others he
could neither be cowed by in
sults nor intimidation. The!1
successful institution which hef*
controls is a splendid monu
ment to his industry.
Its maintainence means con- <
sinuous work. That man who 1
builds up an unendpwed insti- 3
tution must almost literally
sleep with one eye open. The
summer finds him in the North
with his concert company. The
>ther season find him dictating
hundreds of letters and moving
with anxious steps among our
local business men. Should
he abate his vigilence the re
sult would be disastrous to
hundreds of children to whom
no other avenues of training
are opened, and would throw
out of employ ment about
twelve teachers, clerks, and
laborers. Some of his co
workers are among the most
intelligent young people of our
city.. In organizing and con
trolling such a work Mr. Jen
kins has proven himself a
public benefactor. He is
making a sincere effort to pro
tect the destitute and unfortu
nate. In such work he has our
unqualified endorsement.
Something of character may
be surmised from his work. He
is physically strong, morally
pure, and mentally keen. His
capacity for lusinesfc may be
best illustrated, perhaps, in his
newspaper work. The Charles
ton Messenger, with the edito
rial policy of which we can sel
dom agree, is his personal
organ. He is both editor and
business manager. It is one of
the largest Negro papers in
the S^uth and was built up by
l im from nothing. Only those
who are ignorant of the
amount of mental and physical
energy, to say ' nothing of
finance, which are required to
run a successful newspaper
can deny him abilities of high
order in this venture. He
makes no pr?tentions of lite
rary finish either in speech or
writing. The simple language
of the common people with
household words, is his medium
of expression. But his mind
bristles* with practical ideas
such as interest and sway the
ripest scholarship. He has the
knowledge which comes not so
much from books as from the
great school of observation,
practice, and experience. If a
proposition contains sense it
falls with his mental grasp. If
it is a cypher the most ornate
flowers of rhetoric cannot hide
it from his discernment. Per
haps the greatest criticism that
can be made of his journalism
is its sensationalism. How
ever, the Citizen will, in the
future as in the past, pull him
off the perch whenever he
climbs too high.
In the above utterances, we
have no axes to grind or favors
to ask. We believes that Rev.
D. J. Jenkins, as the head of
a benevolent institution which
without him would be non
existing, merit, the support of
the public and should be as
sisted in his annual fair which
begins next month. Since
nothing succeeds like success,
all honor to the man who has
won it in such a large measure.
While the Citizen cannot abide
?orne of his editorial policies,
we believe in rendering unto
Caesar the things that are
Caesars. If we were required
to name the most influential
Negroes in the State of South
Carolina, the name of Danie"
J Jenkins would occupy
very high place on the list.
