Statement of Facts That Stows His
Friendly Attitude.
To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: The colored voters o* Rhode Island and the
country were told some time &go in a speech de
livered at Newport that Senator Charles W. Fair
banks was unfriendly toward the colored people,
a :i(i would, if elected, stand ln the way cf legisla
tion friendly to them end prevent the confirmation
cf colored men should they be nominated for posi
tions ty the President. This statement Is as un
seasonable as it is untrue. I would not now take
notice cf this falsehood if it had not been stated
fey a colored man. who at the time could not con
ceal tha fict that he had a personal grievance
agjtir.st the Senator on account of a measure in
which he Is interested. This measure proposes to
appropriate certain unclaimed funds mam in the
Csi'.ed States Treasury which belong to the es
tates cf colored soldiers who served in the War
cf tie Rebellion, and apply them to the erection and
IHiliitmiiTir> of a "National Old Folks' Home"
far ajed colored people. This measure has beea
C£lta'.eci for many years. and has been brought to
tii« attention of many Senators of both parties
♦luring jji of that time, and several bills for the
piirpose named have been introduced hi th« Sen
ate, but no action has ever been taken on any of
them beyond the mere fact that under the rules
cf the Senate they were "introduced, read a second
tune and referred to the Committee on Claims."
Many Senators might be held responsible for non
action on them by the Senate so fax as that Is con
cerned, but it would be unreascna.ble to do so.
Congress, and not a few aelf-constltuted agents.
should be the sole Judge In the matter of the ap
p.'opr.atiun cf money la the Treasury for any pur
pose, and I think that it can be trusted to handle
ttst matter properly, wisely and Justly. Whether
Senator Fairbanks did or did not introduce a bill
en the subject when requested to do so would not
Kfike his action ln the . ..sea any different from
tiai cf many of the most prominent and eminent
members cf the Senate since the matter was first
feroujret to tha attention of that body.
in the course of a cor.versa with Senator Jcha
Sherman of Ohio la 1535 I asked him for his opm
ior. about the chances of a bill for that purpose
Uiea pending in the Senate becoming a law. and
te said he wculd like to see the old colored people
so beneflted. "but the fund la question U an un
tleimed fund. a:id wa caa:;ot tell." he said "when
clausal mzy ccme. if this money i» a ?pn£
prtttea as provided by this bill, and claimants
mould *U.:warc com c forward ana are properly
luer.uaeo, , ::ie government would have to pay it
ajaai." lie sail the colored people wf.-e becoxaJig

Me eaid the money belonged to claimants that the
tfm-rccient had not yet ititauried. and that their
money CBght not to be appropriated for any other
purpose. lheif weio me vit-ws of that ereat
AasDcas itglgmnii and tinaacier. and they were

Tiit rt-cprd <Jt Senator I'airtanks ?ince he cn

tial ,a h:s cc-ajrgs with ali men. He has not been
less .'nendly :o me colored than to the white peo
pie. When the .MtKinley aticinistrallon decided
to enter the .»p:ini?h po.-ses«;cns by force of arms
to drive Spain from the Queen of the Antilles an.l
free Cuba patriotic colored men at or.cc offered
their services aad applied fcr enlistment in the
Kiiilary and r.avai service in ;h«* war to be wa-e <
bMsraea Bpala und the United States. There waa
opy;>«tior. trcm the Scuth to their enlistment in
the Mrv;.~e, as wi;l t.e wt-llw t -ll remembered. Senator
«."har!es \\ . Fairbanks, cf ind;ar.a, now Repub.lcan
nflWliWf for Vue-rresident of the United Slates
was tiie flrst to come to their aid. and ask that
thpy be aJJaved to enlist or to form regiments of
their own. as many of :h«n requested, to txs ofli
v«red and comnutnded by coiort-d men, with the
same rank and pay as tne commandants of white
rejrimer.ls. The proposition «vaa practically car
ried out. and several colored volunteer organiza
tions were formed. ur,d they, as well as the colored
prgaiara, won high pra..*e for pailar.t service on
t.if field of Spanish-American conflict.
Seeator Fairbanks then showed his friendlineM
an<i fairr-ess in contending fur th»ir right to b~
n-.uxtf-red ir.to the service under the flag to wnich
they had always been ioyal. This act entitles him
Mith President Roosevelt, to the c-jr.adence anil
purport of the *r.tlre colored vote at the comir.sj
eli-ctlon in November. During that war the colored
penple had 266 ofacers at an average annual aiiiary
of 11.600. maklni? the totnl apgregate pay for offi
cers alone $Cj.6-jO- There wre 14.784 privates with

ored men in the service curing that period was
r? -..i.OTT. Th.s vr-d* dne !arg<-ly to the friendly pf
•ons o* Senator Fairbanks in doing what he be
in-ved tc be right.

S>: The (act is wrU known that the nomination
of Judge Parker was conceived in iniquity and car
ried into execution by deception, trickery and
fraud, ar.d that tie nominee himself acred a very
wpspicuous part from start to finish. Ar.d yet his
'•osciuct in the proceedings is held up before the
world as consntutine; him a great man— a new dis
rovery—just the one needed for the Presidency.
The asipniiihir.g thing in all this business is the

"If at first you don't succeed, try. try again,"
has been the motto of the torpedo boat destroyer
O'Brien up to the present. And she has not yet
made a successful "final official acceptance trial,"
although several preparations have been made for
It. After six engine and epeed trials— had while
at the navy yard the last three months, at each of
which there was a breakdown of acme one or other
parts of her machinery, which trials were more
or less satisfactory -the boat was taken to the
Newport station en July 31 to have her Una! official
acceptance trial. The trial runs took place in the
week beginning August i, and while the engines
made more than the required number of revolu
tions, th« boat failed to make The required speed
of _a knots, and she again returned to New-fork
to have some readjustments made, after watch an
other trial will be made at Newport. An interest
ing question has arisen in the Navy Department
in connection with the speed trial of the boat. The
O'Brien was one of the ships which the govern
ment^had contracted with the Crescent Shipbuild
ing Cf.mr-any to build, and when that company
railed it became evident to the government that
the contractors would not be able to carry out the
terms of the contract, and the government found
It necessary to take over the vessel and complete
it at the navy yard. The question is as to whether
the contractor or the government will be. respon
sible i for any deficiency in the sp^ed which the
O Brlen may show at the final trial. It Is he
lieved that the courts may be called upon to de
cide this delicate point, notwithstanding the major
part of the vessel was constructed by the con
There Is no doubt that the 18,000-ton battleship
Connecticut will be launched on September » un
less something remarkable occurs to prevent, and
a casual observer would conclude that she could
be launched next week If necessary, for the hull
looks as if it were completed, and much of the
scaffolding around her stern, which seemed to hold
her la place, has been removed: but there is much
J ', e r,n? ff e n done. The sliding ways are being con
btrjotejl under her now, and mere is other work
being done in the way of building what is known
as he c.-adie. • which Is to carry the ship into the
water, aieanwhila the construction work of tha
£ **♦?• cn * , " and Rollers Is being rushed along.
But the most Interesting question yet to be settled
Is one to which Th* Tribune referred some
weeks ago: Who shall pay for the wine and the
edibles to be supplied when the vessel is launched"
According to thd estimates roughly made, this en
tertainment will cost in the neighborhood of $1,500,
and there is reaiiy no precedent to be followed as
to where the money for it shall come from. The
question was referred to the Controller of the
Treasury, and be has practically decided that tho
law permits a specific amount to be usod for the
exper.se of launching, and if this is sufficient to
meet the expense of Issuing invitations, erecting
stands, and supplying modest refreshments for
special and distinguished guests, then the officers
of the station will b* relieved of an expense which
cnut them at a launching several years ago nearly
t ruch. The chairmen of the Invitation, recep
tion and other committees were appointed by
Admiral Rodgers on Friday, and these will form
an executive committee. 'l ..■ chairmen will select
officers, and act wllh them upon the various com
mittees, and then the work of planning will really
begin. Th* invitations will be as extended is tna
accommodations will permit at the launching, but
they wiil be necessarily limited, so far as the re
freshment privileges are concerned. Another ques
tion was as to who should select the young woman
to christen the vessel, but this has been settled.
In view of the fact that she is a government built
boa: the President and Secretary of the Navy were
expected to make the selection, but after a con
ference they decided to request the Governor of
Connecticut to select the young women. A fund
has already been raised In Connecticut, and the
Contract has beei awarded for a sliver service as
a Rift to the new battleship when she is put tnt»
A complication has arisen over tho matter of
christening the gunboat Dubuquo. now nearly
reaily far launching at Morr'.s Heights. The Mayor
of Dubu<;ue was ask^d to Mlect a younjj troman
of that city to act as the sponsor ■it the time when
the vessel was to be launched, and recently he ad
vised the contractors that he was unabla to nnd
any one who would bo willing to bear the expense
of "eominij to New-York for that purpose, and then
the contractors themselves Feinted the daughter
of Congressman J. A. T Hull, of lowa, to christen
the vessel Later the Mayor of Dubuque selected
a young woman and interned the Navy Department
that she had accepted the honor, hence an »-n:bar
rassins question arose, which the Navy Depart
ment, the Mayor of Dubu-jue und the contractors
took, under advisement. lr wai proposed that the
two young women Jointly christen the vessel, but
Miss Hull cbjects to such an arrangement. In
asmuch as the prerogative of selecting a woman
to christen a warship belongs to the contractor, the
latter can Insist that the Mayor of Dubuque shall
give way.

They lack the cleverness of the old Indiana, and

men are much worse than their fathers. , They

The prosecuting attorney of Wyoming, wnll* at

He suggested that the old tendency toward trll>ni

for raising cattle on the Pine Ridge reservation.
Most of the reservation land is good for grazing,

they have to begin with they could organize a

out the session. Opening steady at an advance ot II
points, the market closed steady net 10 to 20 points
' higher, with the sales reaching a total of about :cj.n<)o
bans. The firmness was due to reiterated reports of
frost In the Interior of Santos. Havre cabled' that tha
reports had been received there, and Prado Chavls
cabled that a still heavier fxo«t occurred, presumably

■ reached 78.000 bags at the two ports, against 61.000

I was full, but the Jundlahy receipts show a dlmlnish

In the way at n«w» during the session there was not j

The nrst break In the market was attended by reports ot
improving weather in the Northwest, lower English ca

j On the following sharp advance the Southwest was a
I big buyer In St. Louis. Fears of political trouble In
I Europe had an lnlluer.ee, and there was some support

west When the market broke in the last hour, there
was tail: of heavy receipts in the Southwest and more
I or logs foreign selling. There was no cash trade, and at
