y* stor Lays Severe Strictures on the Recent
" Speech of Senator j Morgan-Whites Have
Sold Their Votes As Well At Blacks.
Editor of the Afro-American Citizen :
In the Senate of the United States, on
Monday last, the question of "Negro" suf
frage was under consideration, and it is re
ported that Senator Morgan of Alabama
said, that no great body of white people in
the world could be expected to quietly ac
cept a situation so distressing and demoral
izing as is created by "Negro" suffrage in
tbe South. Just here we respectfully sub
mit that these United States are made up
of people from all parts of the world, and
their racial status is hard to define. Ali
over these states are men whose identity is
very questionable. Yes; right at home
here in our sunny South, where the Sena
tor boasted of white supremacy, we find
those who are considered white, having
relatives called colored, therefore we re
peat what we have said in a former article
through your influential paper, that in this
great country of curs, there are white-col
ored people and colored-white people. The
Stator is further reported as ?aying '?that
in many places in the South thousands of
4'Ne^ro" votes in doubtful counties with
little concealment were bought for $1
each." Yes, Senator, we don't deny your
statement, but is this not the case of all
classes and races of men who are poor and
dependent What is the character of the
?rands at all elections? Are they not found
irj the use of money? There was a time
*hen the Negro could not vote, that white
nien were coobed for week until election
?-av, then carried to the polls in coaches, if
you please, and voted for a consideration.
AH over the country, at least we know it
tobe so in this city. So far as the Negro
oemg forced into social equality with the
marj, let not yonrheart be troubled, Sana
t0ri there is not the least danger in this
Aspect, because we believe that social
?quality will ever regulate itself among all
?ort* and condition of men. ProgroM. *
That some men carry their honors as an
an bean gold.
TLat envy and malice are great barriera to
the progrese of the race.
That all things come to those who wait
if you hustle while yon wait.
Tbat things written in lighter rein
should not be taken seriously.
That this world would be very dull if
we were all not making blunders all the
time which give our neighbhrs a chance to
laugh and grow fat.
That the free reeding rooms of the Col
ored Young Men*s Christian Association
are open every evening. The Young men
are cordially invited to visit them. Yoi

That a certain Divine spent the day in
the Country among friends last week. But
lo! and behold! The Chickens heard,of his
coming and scampered always Not one
could be caught. His goose was^not cook
ed that day.
That a certain editor was asked by one
of his readers to predict the State of the
weather fer the next month. The reply
was, Like your subscription. The reply
perplexed bim for some times until the
word "Unsettled" Crossed his mind.
That the Citizen refused to be drawn
into a Church Controversy last week. tVe
scorn such notoriety as many be gained on
ly at the expense of scare J institutions.
The publication of such matter as does the
the community of good does not come
within our range.
That the Rev. S. S. Youngblood our

his knowledge or consent*
THE i SUMNER DEBATING CLUB. T
Annual Meeting-A Grand Banquet-Elo
On the evening of the 8th, Sumner De
bating Club held its annual meeting at the
residence of Dr. W, D. Cram. At the
business meeting the secretary read an
elaborate report of the year*s work giving
an account ot the debates won by each
member. The President ruled, upon s
point of order raised by Mr. King, that the
old officers would hold over for another
year, the club having failed to carry out
the coBstitutionl prov sion for re-election
at the proper time. The officers are Capt.
N. Montgomery, President. Mr. C. C,
Leslie, First Vice-President, Dr. R. J.
At the adjournment of the business meet
ing the members and guests of honor gath
ered around a table which was laden with
the best viands of the season and their rare
condiments. This feast was illuminated
further by flashes of wit and bright con ver
sations At its close Prof. E. A. Xaw
rence, who acted as toastmaker, introduced
in order those who were to respond First
in order was, "The Day We Celebrate,"
responded to by Capt. N. Montgomery.
The history of the Sumner Club was
sketched and the good work it has done
were enlarged by the speaker. He heartily
congratulated the club on its nineteenth

statesman," was responded to by Mr. L
G. Gregory. The salient features in the
life of the great apostle of liberty were out

sponded to by Dr. W. D Crum with his
usual eloquence. Be laid special emphasis
upon those important services rendered by
"The Pulpit;" responded to by Rev.tE.
N. Hollings. The pulpit is the noblest of
all callings and its work at all stages of the
world's history has been fraught with the
utmost good to men.
"The Negro in business;" responded to
by Mr. S. W. Bennett. This speech was
such a one as deserves the serious conside
ration of every thinking man in the com
munity. We print it m full elsewhere.
"Woman;" responded to by Dr. R. J.
Macbeth. Many witticisms at the expense
of the gentler sex flashed forth. Their
contradictions were dwelt upon. A woman
w?l seldom use her reasoning faculties and
then there are those who, doubt that she
has them. She will jump at conclusions
but in nine cases out of ten be right.
