RUMORED DEAL WITH SENATOR
GO KM AN Til AT WILL KB BP HIM IN
Tl e talk f a change in the pub
e Prin er at un early drv tnd
of tne lineal year is asjain preva
lent, but there is als a rum r that
Rounds will not be disturbed. A
reporli r of This Republic was in
fo mt'd by a well-known Demo
crat ihat a deal had been made
by Senator German whereby
Rounds was to kiephia position
until he fi-lt like resigning. Gon
gnssman Perkins was yedteid.iy
i-e n by a reporter aud asked if he
lnid heard anything of such a deal.
Said Mr. Perkins:
'No;' nothing po.-i'ive, but I
have heard it discu3el, and i
think there i s meih ng in it. It
ha- bfen comm n 'alk among a
few members that Gorman has
US' d Ins influence to keep Konmis
T il .--:.
tn ine government, and a major
it of the members of the House
both Republican and Democratic,
are nauseated with him. No one
not supposed to have the admin
istration's ear can get an appoint
ment. Here is what he says to us
when we ask a favor. 'My God,
gentlemen its impossible for me
to make an appointment. I would
be pleased to serve you if it were
in my power. I've just discharg
ed fifty, and am busy preparing
another hat to s;o the first of the
month." Every bit of that'd a lie.
Gorman or a member of the Print
ing Committee will go there with
an applicant and the next day he
is put to work."
The latest applicant for Public
Priuter is Col W. A. Hemphill,
of the Atlanta Constitution. He is
backed by Senator Joe Brown and
the Georgia delegation. The Re
There is no man in the govern
ment service more honeat thau
Mi. Rounds. He will not tolerate
meanness in his office aud all clas
ses of employes iu the government
Priutiug Office are treated like
men. The Bee don't agree with
its contemporary The Republic, to
the effect that Senator Gorman of
Baltimore, Md., has 300 app uutees
in that office; aud so far as Mr.
Gorman is concerned, he is a great
deal better than many ot the
republican seuators. The Bee is
ot the opinion that Mr. Gorm.in
has treated his colored constituents
fairly, aud the Bee has the
first time to hear him abuse or do
anything to their detriment. Mr.
Rounds is the first Public Printer,
who has aim st eliminated preju
dice in his office. It is true that
there are a tew subo dinatej thai
should be removed. Mr. Rounds
is not aware of the disenmi nation
that certaiu so-called foremen
make. The foreman and assistant
foreman in' the Poldiug Room
should be made to step down and
out and others appointed in then
places. These men at one time
were very favorably disposed to
ward the Negro, but it seems now
that colored employes in this de
partment ot the r. luting Office
aie not treated as they should be.
Mr. Rounds is not aware of the
discrim nation that the foremen
make, if he were it would not be
allowed. The Bee would rather
see some good old democrat" put
in the places of these two whi e
washed republ:eans than for
these to remain. The Bind
ery under the charge of Mr.
Win. White, is conducted upon
a busiuess basis. Mr. White is a
man who is liked by all of his em
ploye0. He is a gentleman who
has no prejudice.
The lort-mau of Printing Cipt
B iunt, takes no foolishness ie
knows no man by his c lor or p 1
itics. All men ?.re uva ed equal.
Mr. Spottswo d, his assistant, is a
quiet business man. The Press
ro m is conducted by Mr. Am-r
a-vl an assistant Mr. Sardo. 'ihe
former man is business all over,
bdt when Donaldson was as-is ant,
certain Negroes stood a poor show.
And they would stand an equally
poor chance, if it were left to an
irishman by the name of Bryant,
foreman of Laborers. This Iri-h
republican should be nmde to
know his place. He has no love
for the poor Negro who is under
him, unless he bows to him likeV.
slave. He had full sway un er
Donaldson, but Mr. Sardo makes
him kpflo Ioh nlnnp Mr S.tnlo i-
' liked bj everybody. It is because
he treats those under him likem mi
and not Jike slaves, iirvan
the first journal that has ever
charged the Public Printer with
telling untruths. There is ho man
under the government who is con
ducting an office better, mor0 hon
estly and upon a mo e businesslike
basis than Mr. Rounds. The presi
dent could not letain a better man,
or appoint one to conduct the of
fice more judiciously than the
present Public Printer, sphere
are a few Borehead congressmen
who are angry with Mr. Ro'tonds
because he will not allow them to
make a political office off his
workshop. The Republic has ben
misinformed and it is the hope ot
all honest people who desire to see
Mr. Cleveland's administration a

The opposition to Blaine and his
adherent! in his own state has
grown to proportions bo powerful
that it looks very dubious if the
chameleonic politician can here
after count with any certainty up
on political preference even at home
in Maine. The anti-Biaine revolt
and the positive stand taken by the
soldi, r element of the Republican
party against the boss rule which
has always characterised the Blaine
svstem of party management places
the white plumed man in-a precar
ious position. It would be dicffiult
to determine exactly how strong
or weak Blaine is throughout the
country generally but certain it is
that his strength is waning in his
own state. Free Press.
"WHERE THE "WOODBINE.
The "Washington Bee, an organ
of the colored people, has come out
bright and early for John Alex
ander Logan for president in 1888
"Mr. Blaine," it says, "cannot be
elected if nominated," aud it adds
this significant declaration: " We
had just as lief support a Democrat
as to support Mr. xsiaiue. JVir.
Blaine has a lot of political enemies
to pay, and has too many to con
ciliate." The Bee sees iu Logau a
man who would "carry out justly
and fairly the r-ghts guaranteed
by the Gonsmuiiou." If the Sena
tor irom Illinois captures both the
veteran and the colored vbte,, and
the R-jpublicaus of prohibition
tendencies desert M Blaine,
where will the man from Maine be
when the delegates are cho3en?
Stracuse Eoening Herald.
Hon. Frederick Douglass said
in a recent address that what was
needed now above all other things
was suitable leaders. If the republi
can party hopes to succeed in '88,
it must select Jor its standardbearer
a man who can command the re
spect and admiration of the whole
party. He must be above factions,
and broad and lioeral in his views.
Such a man is the Hon. Benjamin
Harrison, of this State, who is
unquestionably the brainiest man
in the United States Senate to
day. He is an unflinching republi
can souuq on all questions at
issue. He has a brilliant record, an
indomitable will and plenty of
back-bone. His nomination would
iusnre Indiana to the republicans
and likewise New York. Our
ticket for '88 is Benjamin Harri
son, of Indiana, aud William M.
Evarts, of New York. Indianapo
Ben. Butler has been talking
aga'ust, and, as usual, the man old

men call 'rot." Alljthe same every
thing he says is read with interest.
