THE COLOR LINE. .
New Yoke, April 2. The color
line was distinctly visible for a
short time in today's session of the
New York Methodist Episcopal
conference. It was precipitated by
a resolution which recommended
that the general conference take
nnder consideration the advisabili
ty and expediency of putting a
colored man on the bench of bish
ops. This was characterized by
the Rev. C. H. McAnerny as an
attempt at special legislation for
the colored race, many of whom,
he said, bad shown themselves un
grateful for favors received.
"Take Fred Douglas' continued
Dr. McAnerny, "who was held up
as an ideal man by those, of his
race. In what way did he benefit
them? And when he died, did he
leave a penny for their improve
ment?" Several other members spoke in
the same strain, after which the
resolution disappeared from sight
without having been put to vote or
hid upon the table. Press Dis
patch. And this, too, from the Northern
Methodist church; they who,forfifty
years or more, have fought the
slaveholder, and pronounced their
Southern brethren in league with
the spirit of darkness, because they
would not acknowledge the liberty
and equality of the colored man.
Such conduct, as above stated,
when viewed in the light of their
past professions, seems to exhibit
the very essence of inconsistency
and hypocrisy. Whenever a col
ored man dares to assert his man
hood and exercise his freedom, if it
does not happen to suit these phar
asaical overseers, the lash of hatred
and contempt is applied; thus show
ing that all their boasted friend
ship for the negro is a mere pretense,
and that they desire to continue
the race in mental and moral
slavery to serve their own selfish
ends. Such incidents as the above
only serve to open the eyes of the
negro, and discern the thinness
of the cloak these clerical dema
gogues are wearing.
A GOLDBUG CIRCULAR.
Bankers Urge the Selection of Yel
low Metal Delegates.
New Yobk, March 2j. The
American Bankers' Association is
sending to all of the bankers in the
United States a circular as follows:
"At a meeting of the executive
council of the American Bankers'
Association, held in this city, March
11, 189G, the following declaration
was made by unanimous vote:
uThe executive council of the
American Bankers' Association de
clare unequivocally in favor of the
maintenance of the, existing gold
Undard of value, and recommend
to all bankers and to the customers
of all banks the exercise of their
influence as citizens in their various
States to select delegates to the
political conventions of both of th
great parties who will declare un
equivocally in favor of the main
tenance of the existing gold standjj
ra ot value.
You can bet your bottom dollar
that the bankers and money power
wui be almost a unit for the "cold
standard." The coming political J
contest is between the Shylocks
and the people; and all that money
can do will be done by these rich
men to continue the scheme now
in force. Now is the time for the
lover of his country to do hk dftty,
and stand by hk home sad the

The old threadbare politician would
be a weak representative from Utah.
Let us have some new blood who
will go there determined to win if
possible, and if we cannot succeed
there, let them bring their Democ
racy home with them, and box it up
for future use, and then prepare
for the great silver convention at
St. Louis on July 22. The fight w
on, and must be fought to a finish.
THE LITTLE DICTATOR
(Continued from March 2a)
On the tenth of October, 1895,
while the Little Dictator and the
writer were standing in front of the
State Bank of Utah, engaged in
conversation about the . would-be-leaders
of this city, he, the Little
Dictator, happened to Bee a dog
fight down the street, and he start
ed off on a dead run, in order to
be on hand to boss the fight, and
we did not have the opportunity of
meeting him again until Friday
night, Novemeber 1st, 1895, the
night that the Broad Ax gave the
banquet and reception at 6. A.
R. hall. The banquet and recep
tion was advertised in the Broad
Ax to commence at eight o clock
sharp; but while the -clock was
striking six, we heard the sound of
footsteps in the hallway, and some
one was talking very loud and mak
ing a great deal of noise. And
when we turned around to see from
whence came the noise, we were
astounded to behold the Little
Dictator and Brother Adams trying
to get into the ladies' parlor. We
informed these gentlemen in very
plain language, that we did not de
sire their presence there, and they
left the hall, saying that they would
return again in a very short time.
Now, it is a well-know fact, that
every time, the Little Dictator takes
a pinch of snuff, Brother Adams
sneezes; and Brother Adams really
believes that all the members of our
race should fall down upon our
knees and forever worship the Lit
tle Dictator as our little god.
But to make a long story short,
we cannot refrain from informing
our many friends and readers, that
while we were engaged in deliver
ing our address, entitled, The
New " Democracy," the Little
Dictator and Brother Adams
returned, and they slipped
into the kitchen and ate up one
ham and ten large cakes, which the
ladies had donated to Mrs. Taylor
for the occasion, and when these
gentlemen had finished their light
repast they took their departure,
and on Saturday morning they went
and informed all the leaders of the
g. 0. p. xnai BU ucu,U5to "- w
race attended the banquet ana re-
ception. .But as a maner oi i;t,
there were about two hundred mem
bers of our race in attendance in
addition to the one hundred white
ratisens who were present, and all
of these white ladies and gentle-
men treated all the members of our
race with tne greatest uuusmc--tion,
and we think that it was the
height of impudence on the part of
the Little Dictator to call on such
Vnivra neero narers as x.
Lannan, George 3L Scott, Banker
tw and the Hob. James Glen
dinning and other g. o. p. leaaers,
aad to deliberately prevaricate to
these geatkmen in regard to the
Huatx of our race that were pre
eat at the receftioa.
Now- after the Little Dictator had
& in fMS wool.orer
SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, APRIL 11, 1896.
by making them all believe that all
the members of our race would
stand by the g. o. p. at the coming
election, and Monday morning,
November 1st, 1895, one day be
fore the election, we find this same
Little Dictator in the private office
of a prominent Democratic candi
date, (the gentleman referred to is
engaged in the banking business),
and we understand that the Little
Dictator was formerly in the same
business with this gentleman. We '
don't mean to infer that our friend I
the Little Dictator was after any i
Democratic money, but it looked
mighty suspicious to a man up bi
tree, and we honestly believe that
he wanted to be in a position to say '
good Lord and good devil.
(To be continued.)
ENTERPRISE THE BEST PRO-j
The final tests on 1,100 tons of ,

Head proving station; 10,000 tons '

These events occur under a tariff
which reduced the McKinley rate
on pig-iron 40 per cent., and on
Bteel rails 41.6 per cent They
show conclusively that the Wilson
bill rate of 20 per cent, against
which the manufacturers made such
a stubborn fight in the Senate, was
a great deal more protection than
they really had occasion for.
Indeed it is evident that what
they needed was not protection but
enterprise. They are showing un
der a lower tariff not only that they
can take away England's market
in Japan and invade the "home
market" of Russia, but can actaally
sell Alabama iron in the English
market in competition with English
manufacturers, after paying heavy
freight charges by rail and ocean.
English ironmongers are already
declaring this a threat of serious
trouble, and they may soon be de
manding protection against the
"pauper labor" of Alabama and
The control of the world's iron
trade is within eur grasp, and it is
being demonstrated that, under low
tariff, high tariff or no tariff at all,
success depends first and last on in
telligence and energy. American
enterprise is the best protection for
American industries. N. Y. World.
The United States leads, all
others follow. The push and "get
up" of our people is so vastly su
perior to that of any other people
on the face of the globe, that we
need never fear from them in any
enterprise we undertake.
Blain6, the modern seer of the
Republican "party, recognized this
truth when he declared in effect,
"That the American operative re
ceived less for his product than
those of Europe, owing to the su
perior skill and longer hours era
ployed by our workmen." In other
words, we can compete with the
world, and hence we need no pro
tection, unless it be to protect the
rich of our own land as against
the poor. Protection is the second
edition of the "bloody shirt," cam
paign cry. It is a catch phrase to
delude the voters; it is not founded
upon rhyme, reason or justice.
The Utah slogan of "Free silver
and protection," as promulgated by
the g. o. p. of this State, is contra
dictory in itself, and cross-wise with
the national Republican party. It is
like uniting heaven and hell; ming
ling light and darkness, or going
upward and downward at the same
time. If intelligent men can be
