you very much for waiting so patiently.

Recorders of Thanksgiving? I lent

Also, will yon please tell us about
accommodations colored people nre al
lowed in the Opera House in Columbia!
They used to be equal," but thelre are
many people who cannot believe, it
seems, that "anything good' c*u come
out. of South Carolina", and doubts
that this can be true. , Please be sure
to answer this epiery in print. *

Answer-Many thanks for money
order.- Sorry we harcnt a copy of the
RECO RDS it asked for, will advertise for
a copy for you.
There is no state or municipal law
debaring an Afro^ americsn from any
of. the privileges of the Columbia
Opera House still it is done all th
same. The management of this place
of resort and' high order entertain
ments usually sees to it that the Col
red citizens are given "plenty room"
to themselves. . They will take our first
class fares, but-most always give, se
cond clan place p. Tims it ie now in

ind that the editors are not only
telling the Negroes;what to do. and
how to be un intelligent/race, but
?emonstrat?ng what can ' be done
frith energy, courage, ?tickability?
push and stamina.

This punishing Hanna and McKinly
and shocking the republican party,

little nearer the scene ef action, ie
"a drastic measure, a dreadful re
course" but is simply a brave and
heroic man putting into execution!

fraught with mischief. They en

forel enter upon the discussion of my j
several topics, allow me to say to my j
many reader?, "That it ia human to
err.1' The opinions of the press of
this and other states in attempting to
characterise the recent and moat dia
bolical end inhuman ?et, committed at
Lake City in thc county of Williams
burg, S, C., hare in their way of
expressing such brutal acts concluded
that this foal killing of. Baker ?sd hie
babe and the cremation of their
bodies, the maining for life others of
l\ \ ferai)iy have beyond doubt reached
ti,, jj climax of crime, and to them is
di ) much commendation, as well as to\
th' citizens of the state, who along
wit/', have been loud in their condem
nation.. Now* Mr. Editor it remains
to n? seen whether or not U hes
reacried the climax?
Tile future will BOOB tell; Some one ,
