At a meeting of the stewards and

he removed Dr. Stevenson. His prin

Stevenson reported that he, Payne,
slept in bed with the doctor. " Great
is the weakness of the wise (J), who
claims to be such an ass.' The indig

bishop that his reasons wore not
sufficient, and two-thuds of the congre
gation will leave the church. A split
is looked for at any moment.
Bishop (?) Payne preaohed at Union

the A. M. E. Conference wanted the
people to understand that he was the
master, and they must obey him. He
publicly asserted that he doesn't fear
the American presB, for which declara
tion he received the applause of the

made of a meeting they retreated, and

COLOBED JOURNAUSTS TN CoUKOIIi.
Parsuant to call a preliminary meeting
of the different representatives of the
press was held on Wednesday evening,
m the parlors of Mrs. Charles Lemar,
1,108 P street, N.W., for the purpose of
making arrangements for the coming
press convention, which is to be held on
the 27ih, 28th and 29th of June. Mr.
J. W. Cromwell, of the People's Advo
cate, called the meeting to order and
stat d its object and said that it was
the dtsire of many to make the pro
posed convention a success, and enter
tain the visiting journalists in a style
that will reflect credit upon the press
of this city. Oa motion of Mr. W;
Calvin Chase, Mr. Beuben S. Smith of
the New York Globe was elected chair
man, and Mr. Chase, secretary. After a
brief exchanae of view, a committee of
arrangements, consisting of Messrs. 0.
A. Lamar, J. W. Cromwell and W. A.
St. A. Smith of the Advocate, H, B.
Bagby of the Indianapolis Leader, E.
S. Smith of the Globe, and W. C.
Chase of the Bee, were appointed to
make the necessary arrangements, ah o
a contingent subscription committee,
with Mr. J.W. Cromwell, chairman, and
Mr.C. A. Lemar, treasurer, was appoint
ed. The committee of arrangements is
divided in opinion as to whether a
picnic to Glymarnt or a grand banquet
would bo more acceptable. The meet
ing adjourned to assemble again on
Saturday evening. Among those pres
ent were H. B. Bagby of the Loader,
T. W. Cromwell, C. A. Lamar, A. St. A.

particulars of the reception at Wil
lard's Hotel, in honor of Lieutenant
Danenhower, would be published in
this week's ispue; we desire to say that
since the full particulars appeared in
the daily papers, we deem it unneces
sary to make any lengthy report. The
affair was a most happy one, and we
regret to say that the Bee was the only
Negro representative of the race pres
ent to greet so distinguished a fellow
citiien as Lieutenant Danenhower. The
address of Commissioner Dent, chair
man of the commiltee of arrangements,
was sympathetic and logical.
The time is drawing near for the
closing of our public sohools, and our
young ladies will go to their respective

the minds of youth, the instructors
will repair to a.place of recreation and
lovingly gather around them the beau
ties of nature, with the little busy Ble

will inform them of our beautiful city
of magnificent distances. Perhaos there

1HE PUBLIC PRINTER.
Sterling P. Rounds has made several
changes in his office durincr the past
week, which were gie tly needed unre
the regime of Hon. John Defrees, at
which time the office was infested with
Democrats, and the Democratic 0 .n
gress at that time controlled the whole
machinery. The present public print er.
would do i wisthing should he dis
charge eery Democrat in the Govern
ment printing office and make room for
honest Republicans. Mr. Rounds
should not cease discharging until every
Democrat ii moved. The appoint
ment of GapaVUriar is an excellent
one, and we are tpite sure that Captain
Briar will pursue the same course as he
did when Hon. 0. M. Clapp was public
printer. The Negroes under Captain
Briar at that time had a pretty fair
recognition, and he never discharged
any man, white or b?ack, for any cause,
without first hearing both sides of the
question. With such a man at the
head we are quite confident that he will
appoint some worthy colored man fore
man ofono of the divisions. Mr. Rounds
is the only man who hasroally managed
the cilice since tho days of Hon, A. M,
THE STAR ROUTE TRIAL
is still in progress. Mr. Biise, in his
effort to convict Messrs. Dorsoy, Brady
and others, will no doubt fail. Mr.
Bliss is endeavoring to prove that the
clerk of Mr. Dorsoy, Mr. Resdell, con
spired with tho resS of the conspirators
to defraud tho Government. Colonel
Ingersoll's argument refutes the basis
of that position of tho argument of the
THE GRAVE -YARD SCANDAL,
published in the Weakly Dodger, against
several of our most respectable citizens,
plainly demonstrates the weakness of
the Weakly Dodger. There is no
citizen whom this Distriot and county
more highly respects and honors than
John F. Ocak, Esq., the present col
lector of taxes. To say that he has not
been nn honor to the colored race, is a
base fabrication, and any attempt by
the Weakly Dodger to prove otherwise
will be condemned by the citizens of
this community. So far as Mr. McCay
is concerned, it is said that he has been
requested to contribute for the improve
ment of the guards, which he refuses to
do, but Mr. Coak-being one of the

We have, during tha present week,
been busily engaged collecting the
exact number of ap ointments and data
in the several departments of the gov
ernment that are credited to the Dis
trict of Columbia. It has been a ques
tion of great speculation as to the num
ber of persons who are credited to the
District, and how it is done. It is true
that the District of Columbia is de
prived of the right of suffrage ; here it
is a nonentity in the body politic, but
yet we are entitled to recognition jast
the same as other territorial forms of
HOW IT IS DONE
When a member of Congress as a
Senator finds that tho quota of two
State appointments are exhausted, he
has his constituent credited to the Dis
trict of Columbia. In the Treasury
Department there are 941 appointments
credited to the-D.striot ; State Depart
ment, 41 ; WarDep-rtment, Secretary's
Office, 81 ; Commissioner Drum's Of
fice, 41 ; Quartermaster's Department,
38 ; R MoFeeley, Commissary, 11 ;

15 ; Engineer's, 23 ; Or
dinance, 10 ; Signal, 2 ; War Record.6;
Department of Justice, 5 ; Navy De
partment, 97 ; and Postoffice Depart
ment, 85 The foregoing statement of
these appointments is correct, making
in all credited to the District of Colum
bia, 1,781. This is a matter which it
is said tho executive committee of the
District Republican Central Committee
will investigate, and whioh should be
done immediately. There are several
other departments to be named very
shortly, and it is hoped that the Central
Committee will make a judicious inves
tigation of the matter.
It seems to be the general impression
that the President will appoint
HON. A. M. CLAPP,
a stalwart IteryAoan, to succeed Hon.
JoBiah Dent, '.Whatever Mr. Dent's
politics are he has been a faithful officer
and has taken a special interest in the
management of our public sohools.
While he may not have given the col
ored people the trustees equal to those
who control the" nSairs of the white
schools, our colored public schools have
not beon in a more prosperous condition.
The appointment of Hon. A. M. Clapp
is looked for with much enthusiasm by
the colored people of this oity, and it is
hoped that the expectations of the
colored element will not be blighted
by the non-appointment of this veteian
journalist, scholar, politician, orator and
THE PRESS CONVENTION,
The Press Convention of the colored

citizens will give the local press of this
city the necessary encouragement to
make the propoRjd convention a suc

George I. Seney's explanation is as
honorable as his deed. Said he: "If
any one ask you whv I gave so much
money to Wesleyan Female College, of
Ga., tell them it was to honor my
mother, to whom, under God, I owe
more than to all the world beside. I
admire the Southern women. There
are possibilities in the Southern women
not equaled anywhere else on earth."
Oscar Wild was the first to discover
that there are greenbacks to stinnowers, '
Bnt how to bear failure? The best
way is nbt to recognize the fact. Read
history and fiud the failures have really
advanced the world more than the suc
cesses. Columbus was a failure, Galileo
was a failure, Savanaf ola was a failure,
the two last especially, for they had not
the courage of their convictions. If
those three men had at any time been
gifted with the second sight, and had
seen the place they were to fill in his
tory, it might have consoled them; but;
no doubt every one of them died of ft
broken heart, convicted in his own mind

One of the best scholars that West Point
ever produced spent the whole period
of our war underground, bnilding works
in the nncertaiu earth of Vickaburg, and
the like. He saw all the boys whom he
had distanced at the academy ride on to
glorious victory with all the pride, and
pomp, and circumstance of war, while
burrowed like a mole, hid bis talents
under gronn.d. When the war was over
there was no increase of rank or pay for
the industrious engineer, and he had no
reward but his own conscience. How

Wendell Phillips, in one of his witty
lectures, made an amusing catalogue
of the hundreds of babies who should
be born on some particular day in New
York. Fifty were to be absolute fail
urea, not able to take care of themselves
at all ; twenty-five more were to drag
out a hard-working existence, just keep
ing body and soul together ; fifteen
more were to be speculators, in
ventors, dreamy and impracticable, but
able men ; and tho remaining ten Were
to be successful men, "if, indeed, any
body can be called a successful man
added the lecturer.
It is curious to see the successful
man with his satellites the failures
hanging on to him ; some who cannot
work and some who will not work, all
needing help. The energetic, indus
trious, successful man goes pulling his
adherents through the world as some
smart steam-tug goes pulling its lazy
freight through the still waters of the
Hudson, or in the busy waters of the
bay. It is astonishing how generously
and unquestioningly the successful maa
adapts himself to his burden. Does he
never ask himself, "Why should I help
these people? why should they not
help me ?" Apparently not ; he accepts
his destiny as unquestioningly a3 the
steam-tug dues. The inertia of the one
is the complement of the energy of the

For bad breath take after breakfast
a tableepoonful of the following mix
ture: Chlorate of potasea, two drachms;
sweetened water, four ounces. Wash
the mouth occasionally with the same
mixture and the breath will be as sweet
as an infant's of t.o months.
A correspondent has found great
relief from chronic diarrhoea, from
which he has long suffered, in the
daily use of wheat bran and soft water,
strained through a cloth and used as a
beverage at meals. The gruel is said
to be very helpful to persons suffering
from constipation. So simple and
accessible a remedy ought to be
The following is given as a remedy
for lookjaw : Let any one who has an
attack of the lockjaw take a small
quantity of turpentine, warm it, and
pour it on the wound, no matter where
the wound is, and relief will follow in
less than a minute. Nothincr better
can be applied to a severe out or bruise
than cold turpentine ; it will give
certain relief almost instantly. Tur
pentine is almost a sovereign remedy
for croup. Saturate a piece of flannel
on the throat and chest, and in a very
severe case three or four drops on a
lump of sugar may ba taken inwardly.

In an annual report of the South
Carolina Board of Health it is asserted
that the farmers of the South and West
have for years been cultivating dis
orders of the digestive organs by eating
too much salt pork and filed food and
by hurrying them down. Liebig, the
dietetic chemist, states that salting
pork diminishes its nutritive-value and
renders it more indigestible. Speaking
of salt pork always reminds us of the
Hindoo who, when introduced to a
friend of ours traveling in India, re
fused to shake his hand because, as he
said, "I hear you Americans eat dead
hog, and even after it has been dead
six months." The Hindoos evidently
regard that with as much aversion as
we do the eating of rats by the
Chinese. Dr. Foote's Health Monthly.
The Chinese in San Francisco are re
ported to be directing their attention to
type setting, and strange to Bay,
English type setting, some of their
number having learned the compositor's
vocation in the printing offices of Eng

Mr Editor, -DerSirJ I was par
ticularly "charmed" on Saturday morn
ing last to behold for the first time,
your interesting paper, The BaU, and I
cannot express the deep and satisfactory
satisfaction which it gave me to learn
through your active and energetic agent
that Tse Bze would not like several
other journals, wholly ignore the peo
ple of our seotion. If you intend to
keep your eye on Capital Hill and a
faithful record of the events taking
place here from time to time, why of
course, our people will "bee" with you

The choir of Ebenezer has received
the services of a son of Rev. Dr.
Syaton as their organist, and we of this
section may expect to hear smie
heavenly strains. Little Miss Dode

that horid organ was too much' for the
dear child to control.

Singular Test of the Sense of Tonch.
The papers of Indianapolis, Indiana,
published extended notices of the re
cent death of Rev. W. H. Churchman.
He wa3 a man of remarkable ability,
strong character and amible disposition?
He was blind, and yet in spite of his
infirmities attained a degree of literary
attainments reached by few men of his
agp; and was well versed in literature
and current topics. He was President
of tho State Institute for the Blind; and
as an instructor of the blind he bad few
equals and no superior and in the
choson field of his life work no man
stood higher. Each of the Indianapo
lis papers give complimentary mention
of his usefulness as a man and his
worth as a citizen. As an example of
tho wonderful sense of touch acquired
by the blind, it may be mentioned that
Professor Churchman was sent out to
Pittsburgh to purchase glass for the
new Institute; he selected Schmetz's
Bellevernon glass; when asked why, he
said it "had a smoother finish," and
when, to test him, several makes were
placed before him, he invariably select
ed the Bellevernon glass by touch alone,
repeating his assertion that it "had the
best surface of onv."
