SIONERWHAT THE PRESIDENT WILL
DO IF MR. ARMSTEAD IS NOT CON
The course which the colored men in
the body politic are pursuing is one
that will ultimately end in the distinc
tion of the best interest of the colored
race. Having made a review of the
situation we find that some of our co
lored friends have gone against their
own interest for a few dollars or a
glass of whisky. We have in our mind
now a case in the
of Illinois where three hundred negroes
defeated the election lion. J. II. Lewis
who h;ts always been a friend to the
colored race. Hon. J. II. Lewis, of
ICnoxville, was born in Tompkins
County, New York, July 21, 1830; emi
grated to Illinois in the fall of 1S-36 ;
received a common-school education:
was admitted to the bar in 18G0 ; was
elected clerk of the Circuit Court of
Knox County in 1860; was elected a
member of the House of Representa
tives of Illinois in 1SV4 ; ami w;ls
elected to the Forty-seventh Congress
as a Republican, receiving 14,658 votes
against UfiVl votes for John JS. Lee,
Democrat, and 2,548 votes for AY. II.
Reynolds, Greenback candidate.
He was elected Mayor and to several
other important positions, and every
position has been tilled with honor and
credit, lie was an Abolitionist and
w;us often condemned and rebuked be
cauce he refused to notice advertise
ments of runaway slaves, lie hits al
ways been a Republican true and tried
and who, from his day of majority, has
voted the republican ticket. In the
darkest and most dangerous hours oi
negro oppresions, Mr. Lewis stood firm
and was faithful to the negro. It wa.;
three hundred negro votes, that de
ieated this eminent statesman and
friend of the colored race. Mr. Lewi
could have been elected had hepurchased
negro votes for money and whibky
which he was too honorable to do. The
Democrats resorted to the meanest
schemes, the tender spot of the three
hundred was touched; they had a pecu
liar weakness for rum, which had the
necessary elfect. The corrupt and dis
contented negro politicians are doing the
masses- more harm then good. It would
be well for the musses to have a watch
ful eye of what is being done by these
malcontents. For the services rendered
to our race by Mr. Lewis the colored
Republicans should honor and respect
mm ana return him to Congress when
an opportunity presents itself. A man
so eminent and serviceable to our people
has the thanks and support of the Rue.
HON. FRED. DOUGLASS
will on next Monday be tendered a
b;inquet by the representative men of
the Country. The long services of Mr.
Douglass have been appreciated and as
a token of such esteem and appreciation
he receives a banquet. The program
for the occasion has been excellently
arranged by Professor J. M. Gregory
and the master of ceremonies Hon. B.
K. Bruce, who had been re-elected from
the beginning to preside on this occa
sion. No better relcction could have
been made, no more honorable gentle
man could been found and no" other
person could give more dignity, char
acter and significance to this proffered
banquet than Hon. B. K. Bruce. The
Washington correspondent of the (flobc
prevaricated as usual when that corre
spondent published the assertion that
some one else would preside, and as Mr.
Bruce was relected from the beginning,
none other except Senator Bruce could
have given more honor to the occasion.

with money collected by her. Lan

of the heartless conductof Mr.Siuythe.

stated that he allowed her 15 a
month to support herself out of hi.-,
munificent salary. An effort is being
made to bring these facts to the atten
