COLOKED
The few words AdiirMsed to the
wgro by Mr. rhelao, the Democratic
nominee lor Congress, in bis speech
at Somerrille on Saturday, should be
printed in circular form and pllced In
the bandaof every co'.oied voter In the
dia'rict. Heretofore the neiiro baa
ben indissolably wedded to his Idol,
Ma'Publisan pjrly. He was Impr.s3ed
with the btlief that the war was Inau
jnratad for the exprets purpo-e of se
curing bis f ree do3 azd th it the D.'mo
rrnla tvrrA anxious to reatora him to
slavery and won'd do bo if C!eve'and
was elftted President. Thpy begin to
ere that thc-y have been deceived y
the R imbli.aa leadjts, and tho.o is
much unrest among the colored vott-re
of the South. In the Aiignst election
bundre ls cf thtm p nly and ivi-
antly vctcd tha straight Democratic
ticket and, the reason given was that
they hud been led and deceived long
enough by the men who used them as
"bowers of wood and drawers of
water," ( gt office for themselves.
The negro, for the fl st time since the
war, is thinking for himself. He has
discovered that the Democrats are not
his enemies, that the white Republi
cans are his friends only bo far ai
they can nss bim to put whits Ra
publicans in tfflje, and Mr. Thtlau'a
speech at SouiervUle was siugalarly
appropria'e and did much toward en'
ligh'ening the mind of the negro ts
to the cause of bla freed jm and bia
duty as a citizen. Mr. Phelan could
have added force to bis addreis to
the colored people by referring to the
fact that recently when the Republi
cans of the Third District of Louisiana
in convention assembled nominal
Davidron, a negro, for Congress by a
two-thirds vote, the matter was taken
In hand by the Congressional Com
mlttne, which threw Davidson over
b?ard and nominated his white com'
petitor, Chttaier B. Dm rail, on the
grounds that no negro wai a fit can
didate. - and that bo could not be
elected, even in such a etrong Repub
liean district. And who is Dunell f
Why, he is the most offensive carpet-
bigger from Pennsylvania that ever
came Smth. to rob, plunder and hold
' '.lice. He has held office ever aicce
68, by Tiegro -vote) aeaured by tell.
4 them that if he wai not elected all
,i blacks would be again slaves.
ie negroes have discovered tuat the
(bite Republican cares nothing for
them only so far as they consent to
bind themselves in a new and mueh
more galling slavery than that of
bodily bondage. The Republicans
want their votes; but they do not
want them to have any ihara in the
offices. These are reserved e xcl hp! vb1
for white Republican, -fofwlioni
colored otrare expected to match
up to the polls and vote as so many
slaves to the Republican party. At
the last Piealdential election the Re
pnblicans east- 14.890 votes for
Blaine in this Congressional Dis
trict. The coloied people furnished
I'O'O of th:sl4,S!NJ votua, and they
ought to be allowed the honor of fur
nishing acjbred candidal for Con
gress. Dot the white Republicans
take all the olllces and expect the ne
groes to furnish the votes by which
they are to be elected. It is bo in
a 1 the Republican San of the Noitb.
. Pi-niigylvania gave Illaice nearly 100,-
, 000 majority, and in 'h'B S ate, whte
the colored element . supplies the
averse mcj rity, no negro has cvur
bean nominated for a 8tte, a Con
gref eional, a Senatorial or a Legisla
tive oflki by the Republican party.
Worthy men of this nice have maAe
' themselves candidates, and ' have
' pushed their claims with eons picoous
abili'y. But not one has ever been
nominnttd. In one of tbe Fuikdel
phia districts, where almost one half
cf the vr.tsrs are colored men, one of
the ablest wen In thsir ranks was re
cently defeated simply bfcause he was
black. Ttie rame exneiience came to a
prominent colored man cf Danphin
connty. He wasdefea'ed for nomination
in spite of the fast tint the members
of his race were alrmst unanimously
fi.r him, and in spito of his Ability and
pirty eervhe. Hi had a black skin,
and men with black Bklns may vo(e
wit!i fie KipiiblicainauJ kslptoelect
iti tic'i:t, bit fiey nro Lot entitled to
any consiileralioa whnn honr-rs ar to

has not possd s the espo, ial and only
friend of the neirro, but it has bson

tbe unsettled condition of affairs thete,
and the uncertainty caused by appre
hensions that a meat serious war may
break out, have a strong depretsive in
fluence and check enterprise. Tbe
clearing home returns for lat week
show a total gain, in tbe thirty cities
reported, cf, 11.4 per cent, over the
corresponding week last year. Lead

tiors. Oij I-ur cities report a de-
creae canrg toe weett, tnree oi
them of 5 and 8 per cent, but one-
New Orleans amounts to 17.2 per
cent, flew lora; au vices report a
larne and healthful improvement of
all kinds of mercantile and manu
factured products." In iron and
steel, mills and furnaces are every
where oversold, and inquiries are nu
merous for winter requirements, with
no s'ea of over production. Leather
holdd its own; E. stern shoe manu
facturers report an active demand,
with decreasing stocks and crowding
orders. Railway earnings are incre?s
iiu-a decided tsiu ranee of increasing
trade. Indus rial produceis frequently
complain of small ptofits, and the
market will bear no material advance.
Labor dlflicalt'ea aid to kenp down
prices, as advanc:s lead to drtnands
for changes from the workmen.
The Iargs amount of orders re-
caived in aJvance also steadies prices
at their present level, bat in
ial, coal, lumbar, iron and cotton
sba-p advances are considered possi
ble. The Limber Trade Journal says
"Reports gathered f rem almost every
tine of trade indicate a largely lu
cra'od business over last fall. There
is no donbt but that stocks of all
kinds a'e exceedingly low in the in
terior towns, and mercbauta must buy
la-gtly to replenish their stocks to
meet the demands. The best element
of the present boom, the most cheer
ful aspect lies in the conservative and
solid biis npon which it is made.
Confidence is everywhere established,
and the business world takes on a new
hope, bnyi liberally, and prosecutes
with vigor and faith, certain that en
emy will bs rena d." The Baltimore
Record siys the West never saw pro
groJSSBch as the South is now niak
ing. The Philadelphia Record reports
labor in demand; the small Bhopa
espec'ally are actively employed, and
manufacturers and merohnnts are
buiy. In the Weat building is active,
with indications of scirolty cf labor in
maohiue shops, railway works
and mills. The demand Is
expected to bring many foreign
workingmsn over here. Tne Chatta
nooga TWuIeimcin reports: 'Through
out the South bnsiness has been good
in September, and October has so far
been a lively month. There has ben
no sudden climb in prices AU rates
have, however, stiffened and advances
have occurred in several lines. The
same paper says ths iron men there
ars looking for higher prices. Finan
cial affairs show no special changes,

for "the dollar of our fathers." Silver

streets of Hfrnaado, Miss , a scene fit
lor ine wnus ot some barbarous conn
try. Between the hours of 10 and
o'clock some drnnken rowdies had
pissi eelon of the streets and nithing
was seenre from their destructive
hands. Windows were broken, fences
torn down, railings torn of! hom es
and lileendsngored by about a doaen
pmtol shots on one of the principal
slreeta. Even frVs property was not
respee'ed in their wild career. Planks
were torn off the fares around the
Central Prasbyterian Cnuich. A poor
old colore! womsn had her fence
pul'ei down, and cows destroyed corn
and bay that she was saving for win
tar. As yet no estimate lias been
made of damage done, but it is con
siderable. In Btieh a case as this

lectnred last night to a small but re
fined and intelligent audience at tbe
Y. M. H. A. Hall, corner of Second
and Union street. Mr. Barnes is a
gentleman of about 45 years of sge,
rather stoutly built and somewhat
robust of form. Hit manner of speak-
ing
is easy and convsnational
his matter is embellished
nd
ith anecdotes and stories, whioh
he posse' ses the faculty of telling with
rare art and skill. His powrs of
mimicry are exceptional, and hia
versatility in tiking oil, with equal
skill, the bt sotted dninkarl, the aged
female pnoper and the garctimomcus
deacoF,is a source i f ir fl ite amuse .
ment to bis hearers. Mr. Dimes
voted himself to gaining ed-
berents to the order which
he represents, and made an
excellent showing for his cause. It is
a'i rrgai zition that not only pays
$2000 ro the wldofts of dece'(ipd mem

Col. Barney Huithes rrado a few re
