Drs. Cook and Augusta are be
ing strongly urged for the position
of surgeon in charge of the Freed
men's Hospital. There are several
petitions iu circulation requesting
the secretary of the Interior to
make a change. Dr. Cook, it is re
ported, is being backed by Dr. Gar
nett and a large number of medical
men. Dr. Augusta is being urged
on his army record. The report is
t jat Dr. Cook stauds the better
chance of being appointed, and the
friends to Dr. Ausgusta believe to
the reverse.
It :s rumored that there will be
a terrible explosio'u of Administra
tive powder about the 80th inst.,
whereby, the executive depart
ments are to be bereft of scores of
deserving republican servauts.
This may be true, but it must be
remembered that such explosions
usually bring thunder and lighten
ing and it is not improbable that
lightening will strike somewhere
about these precincts not loug af
ter the year 1888.

The discovery of the Federal ju
ry, at Seattle, W&sb. Jerr'y,
which reveals a conspiracy calculat
ed to unsettle American institu
tions and precipitate a revolution
bloody and disastrous. The jury
charged that there is a powerful
organization with numerous branch
es scattered all over the country
and directed by the most incendia
ry and rabid socialists and foreign
revolutionists whose object and
purpose is to instruct the members
of the organization in the arts of
destruction and the successful use
of dynamite and other engines ot
destruction. It is their purpose to
use every species of diplomacy, se
duction and craft to keep up a
continuous disturbance between the
labor organization and the capital
ists in order to defeat every hope
of conciliation.
If there is any good ground for
thiB so-called discovery, it should,
be a warning to all classes of good
American citizens to guard well"
their interests by vigillance : and
the use of every means of neutral
izing the attempts of evil-designing
foreigners to destroy our govern
ment and reduce our country to a
state of chaos. The colored people
should do their duty for consider
ing their weakness and their sus
ceptibility to the false light which
unprincipled men are disposed to
place before them they should be
mindful of their passed experience
and be ready to spurn every ad
vance which will surely be made
by these destroj ers ot peace and
order and show that we possess a
love of country and a belief-iu the
ultimate benefits of American insti
tutions and American justice.

Ot course his protest had no effect
on the chairman of the executive
committee; we never asked, for

on Southern Outrages, but as we
have been made chairman we pro
pose to show that just such ciauks
as Martinet of the Standard should
be identified with those who out
raged Negroes in the South. The
protest ot such asses as the editor
of the Standard was made against

No one is enjoying life more
pleasantly now than the president
and his bride. After spending a
few days of their honeymoon at
Deer JPark these two wards of the
nation have returned in the full
vigor of life. It is now the presi-
dents and his bride's Honeymoon,
wh'ch all bonest men, who enter
into a Heavenly contract enjoy.

As vacation approaches, the ab
sorbing question with which the
anxious parent must deal is: What
shall we do with our boys and
girb? And this is indeed a ques
tion. It is true that the phiidren
who liave been attending school,
need recreation some rest from
the labors of school; but recreation
and rest do not mean idleness.
The children should be allowed to
play, to be sure, for they have
fairly earned a title to that kind
of enjoyment; but they should also
be made to devote a share of the
time which the vacation enforces
in mental exercise, in order that
their minds may not become en
tirely divorced from the studies of
the year just passed. But the
question is still unsettled, What
shall we do with. our hoys' and
girls? The pareiits desire that the
boys devote much of their Hime to
industrial employment and the
girlB to some avocation which will
develop a taste for the useful and
artistic; but where can this em
ployment be found? Are there no
industrial schools 'where boys and
fijirls can spend an hour pr two
each day? There may be some
way by which the parents might
get together and form a school by
engaging a teacher aud furnishing
utensils, and material for the work.
A small" printing office might be
gotten up and a teacher employed
to instruct vouths. A iuvenile
carpenter shop, a paint shop or a
tinner shop could be easily formed
and managed during the vacaiion
with excellent results. Schools
teaching sewing, drawing and ar
tistic painting might be formed by
some of our refined and accom
plished school teachers, wb;

Dear Clara: I have just con
cluded reading the comments of
the press on tbe marriage of Miea
Folsom to the president. Indeed
it was an event of National impor-1
tance. I am sure that she will con
duct ihe social affairs of the White
House with dignity and honor.
The man to whom she has been
married has proven himself an
honor to the natiou. She is one
of us and while we a'e precluded
from enjoying the" hospitalities of
xne Mansion entertain tor our
Chief Executive the highest re
gard. Ouivrace will at any time
forgive a wrong, and I am
sure from what I have learned
of the. president, he has no
prejudice to color. The
of the White House is gifted with
sublime intellect True as the lie
public says that there are bying
formed social cliques to capture
the lady. Mrs Cleveland knows
what society to select. She does
not talk much, she is like the pres
ident, what she intends to do will
be done.

Recorder Douglass, Ex register B.

and others. There are two r sets
of invitations out, one by the Or

the other by the Orpheus Glee

ing aud the organization that has
the most money will win. I have
no idea how the abYair will be set
