LITTLE DICTATOR OF
(Continued from Feb. 90th.)
On WEDNESDAY.September 2jth,
895. five days after our memorable
isit to the elegant home o! the
on. Moses Thatcher, we met the
ittle Dictator on the corner of
rest Temple ana oecuuu ouum
Ixeets, and he immediately ordered
to stop, which we did. lnea He
n in a nresumntous manner,
"I presume you distinctly re
ember that I promised to tell you
.1 about the distinguished gentle-
an whom I would have nominat-
to represent our race in the
gislature of Utah, if I would
ly had the opportunity of pre-
tin0, the name of the Hon. o. -U.
ambers, oE Mul (JreeK, to tne
vention. I feel confident that
would have received the nomi-
tion, at the very sound of his
e. The convention would haverj
ent wild with enthusiasm, and he
ould have been nominated by
lamation, and he would have
een elected by an overwhelming
ajority; for you know that Mr.
hambers is a gentleman of great
bility, and he is the owner of a
arse farm at Mill Creek. He is also
good Mormon, he having joined the
ormon Church some thirty years
go, and, you know, all the Mor
mon people would have voted for
him, for he is held in the highest
esteem by all classes of his fellow-
citizens. And I feel that it 1 nan
onlv been successful in sending Mr.
Chambers to the Legislature, that
he would have been instrumental
in having a great many law passed
for the especial benefit of our race
here in Utah.
'I suppose that you are aware of
the fact that the last Republican
Legislature did not pass any meas
ures that were of any benefit to the
members of our race, notwithstand
ing their large majority in both
branches of the same. You know
the leaders of the g. o. p. promised
Judge Johnson during the cam
paign of 1894, that in case the g.
o. p. was successful that they would
pass a civil rights bill which would
give members of our race the priv
ilege and the right to frequent all
public resorts, including hotels,
restaurants, saloons and all other
places of amusement and I am posi
tive the last .Legislature wouia
have passed a bill of this kind if it
had not been for the influence of
Banker Bacon and George M.
Scott and a few other negro haters,
who seem to control the g. o. p.
in Utah. These gentlemen are of
the opinion that every member of
our race must forever praise a'ad.
laud the g. o. p. leaders to the
skies, and that we should continue
to fall down upon our knees and
forever worship these leaders of the
g- o. p., simply because yfe beong
to the negro race and it is a welj
known fact that tijey detest and.
hate the members of oar race. Bat
I ought not to criticise or condemn
the actions of Banker Bacon or
George M. Scott, for these two
gentlemen are my very best friends.
You know we caa easily learn to
associate with the devil himself
providing we caa saake mosey by"
The Little Dictator seemed to be
very short. winded on this occasion,
and the words rolled out of his
mouth like hot shot.

AN ODD COLOR LINE.
White Women Teachers of Black
Pupils Object to Colored
Baltimore, Feb. 29. The 160
white women teachers now em
ployed in the eleven colored public
schools in this city are greatly
aroused over an ordinance to here
after employ only colored teachers
in the public schools. The ordi
nance has already been favorably
reported upon by the Council Com
mittee. A mass meeting of white
women teachers was called this
afternoon, at which resolutions were
passed protesting against the ordi
nance and asking Mayor Hooper to
veto it if it should be passed by the
The ordinance looks to the grad
ual elimination of white teachers in
colored schools, but there are a
great many white teachers who
would resign rather than be associ
ated with colored colleagues. Mayor
Hooper, like the other Republicans,
is pledged to the policy of colored
teachers for colored schools. New
Whenever you find a strain of
cold Northern blood, you will find
the color line brought into promi
nence. There has always been more
trouble in the schools, between the
white and colored races, in North
ern or Republican communities than
anywhere else. The above named
city has recently passed under the
control of the Republicans, and
about the first thing we hear of is a
row over the color line; yet these
g. o. p. followers have' always pre
tended to teach equality of men
regardless of color. In most Dem
ocratic localities, there is no trouble
