The Hotel Brotherhood is pre
paring a petitiou to congress to be
presented at the next session, to
incorporate them ; they have al
ready received a communication
from the Hon. J. Raudall the rep
resentative from this state aud on
his arrival here after congress ad
journs they will appoint a commit
tee to wait upon him aud submit
to him their desire. The Brother
hood is rapidly growing aud appli
cations are fast coming in. I hope
the head waiters and head bellmen
of your city will go right to work
and start their Brotherhood, for iu
time to come they will never regret
it. I can say caudidly, iu this city
there is not one man that is a mem
ber of the order out of employ
ment; for when the Brotherhood
learns of a mau being out of work
they soon fiud a place for him.
The president of this order, Mr. C.
H. Hamilton, has placed more in
positions thau any other man of
color in this town. He is well
known in the hotel fraternity and
is well posted and liked by the
members. This coming October
new officers will be elected. 1 think
he will be re-elected for another
year. I shall cast my vote solid
for him only.
I trust the convention at Alan
tic City, ot the newspaper editors,
will be a successful affair, although
several predictions have been inado
iu this city iu regard to its success.
I shall wait patiently ami see.

THE BATIMOKE LETTER.
(special correspondence of the
Balto., Md., Aug. 4, 1886.
The rejecfou of Mr. Matthews
by such au overwhelming majority
in the Senate, is the general topic
of conversation and comment here
in all ciicles. Every one seems to
have a different theory as t j the
cause which led to weaken his sup
port so perceptibly during the hut
tew days before the vote was taken.
The AVashington correspondent of
the Baltimore Anveiican tele
graphed au extended inteiview
with Ex senator Bruce to that
journal yesierdav morning, in
which the conclusion of the whole
ma ter seems to be reached and
summed up. Prom Mr. Bruce's
statement it seems ihat Mr. Mat
thews .sought no assistance, what
ever from any representative c d
ored man, preferring, like the
Euchre player with a good hand,
to "go it alone." While the Ex
Senator did no say it iu so many
words, still to read this interview
betweeu the lines, it is at once
apparent that himself, Mr Doug
lass aid others, not only failed to
give mm an' support, but arrayed
B ifceir influence, againgt him. I1
may be said by some that the re
jected nominee felt ashamed to in
voke the aid of old republican pa
triots, which is no doubt a pre
sumption; but after all, he did
seem to seek colored republican
influence, but it was hardly the
kind to command the attention of
the grave law makers of the Senate
wing of the Cap tol. The general
verdivt is that this case has tested
the use which the democrats, as a
party, have for their colored allies,
and that colored men who fool
their fortunes on that side, only
kiss the hand that scourges them.
This case has also been an amus
ing test of the prophetic capabili
ties of some over sanguine Wash
ington correspondents of colored
newspapers, and their "thoiough"
insight into affairs of sta'e.
A number ol these embryo jour
nalists seem to have, fallen despe
rately in love with Mr. Mat'hews,
and sounded his praises "trom
early morn till dewy eve." A
quotation from one of the many
instanct-s in mind will serve the
purpose of this comment The
Washington corre-poudent of the
"Philadelphia Sentinel" whp only
met Mr. Matthews just prior to
writing his letter for the last issue
m.de au indignant defen-e ot the
rejected nominee, and soared off
into the realms of prophecy and
senatorial love. He rounded off
his efforts with the statements
that "It is untrue that Democratic
Senators oppose his confirmation"
aud that "Mr. iMatthews is making
a hard fight, but will eventu illy
win." lie thou'd have known all
along that this first statement was
incorrect, and it is to be hoped
that he has learned by now that
hra'second one failed of realization.
Mr. B T. Bl ck, a member of a
colored firm of manufacturer and
inventors of Brooklyn, N. "X.. has
been in the city for several days.
Among the inventions which the
firm owns aud will manufacture
are a steam ic s yacht and portable
fire eacape Mr. Black is tiavel
lmp; wiih a view to a more extent
sive advertisement of the concern
and nas been negotiating wrh
Rev. Harvey Johnson, Mr. J. S
Davis aid others with the ohj ct
of bringing it prominently before
the colored citizens of Baltimore
The enterprise is certainly a step
in advauce, and if properly man
aged, deserves the support aud
encouragement of the race.
LOUISE TO CLARA.
Havalow House, Atlantic City,
N. J. Aug. 3, 1886.
Dear Clara: On account of my
busiiHS-, I was compelled to leave
the Cliuiou cottage after my ar
rival he e. Clinton cottage is sit
uated on one of the leading ave-nue-.
I have met many old
t'rinds. Dr. Tanner of Piiila.,
Dr. Thompson, and Mr. Wm.
Brown ot Balto., T. T. Fortune,
Prof. W. J. Simmons, George P.
Bragg and many others are here.
Prof. J. T. Layton is at the Clin
ton. The air is delightful and all
present are enjoying themselves.
Aliss K'ger has improved much
from the fall tdie had last winter.
She is just ? s livily and pleasant
as ever and goes in bathing every
morning, which she says does her
sp'uiued foot much good. Miss
Uii'usc, who is at the Clinton, is
enjoying i he t-ea breeze, but does
not u in bathing as she is a littje
afraid Mr. Layton will give, a
Cautaa in a few days; Miss E
Woimley will be pianist. 'Mr.
Cole will take part I b lieve. Mrs.
Wormley is looking well. I was
informed that the editors had a
at Mr. Coots' last evening, which
was well attended. There were
several exchanges of opiui ns as
to the rules governing the couven
tion, that will meet to day in the
City hall. The only two cmdi
dates in the field for the presidency
ot the convention are Prof, Sim
mons and Mr. Fortune. The
morning train will bring qui'e a
number of the delegates The
.vhite people are anx ous about the
convention, and a feeling of inter
est is greatly manifested among
them. The excuisiou that arrive
ed in this city from Washington
last Saturday n;ght brought many
common white persons. There is
a great deal of prejudice towards
the colored people by just such a
class of poor whites. The booths
on the beach are not rented to
persons of color.
lhe Clinton has first ch.ss ac
commodation on the beach, and i3
the only place the colored people
have here, with but few exceptions.
There are a few who have their
own bath houses and are not d-
pendent. Dr. Augusta and wife
are expected here in a few days.
The weather is delightful. The
Havalow House has a nice cover
ed porch, which shuts out the
heated rays of Sol. Mr. P. Wil
liams seems to be very jolly; he
knows everybody. I shall leave
here Wednesday for the East and
w 11 not be in Washington before
the 15th of August.
The breakfast bell is ringing,
and a? I have promised to make
several copies of our editor's re
port on "Southern Outrages" for
the press, I must defer until my
next letter. I remain
Atlantic City, Aug. 6th.
The banquet at the Havalow
House to the colored press last ev
ening was a grand affair. Mr. Ar
ueaux of the New York Enterprise
tendered it. Hou. Pred. Douglass
P. S. Will leave for Philadelphia
today. The convention adjourned
A NATIONAL MONUMENT TO
THE COLORED SOLDIERS.
We take the following from the
advanced sheets of Col. William's
Military History of the Negro
Troops in the Rebellion. The fol
lowing is from chapter XVI.
In passing in review the supnrb
military services of the Negro
Soldier it is apparent that there
are lessous to be drawn there from.
Hamlets, and villages, towns and
cities, counties aud states have
erected monuments and cenotaphs
to commemorate the valor of their
citizens. The iueffable, mute elo
quence ot these soldiers monuments
is invaluable to the cau-e of Nation
al unity, while the story of the civ
il war is forever an object lesson.
Tue songs of a Nation are the
heart-beats of natrotism : but the
surest way to teach National histo
ry is in monumental marble and
brass. Tne deathless deeds of the
white soldier's valor are not only
embalmed in song and story but
are carved iu marble and bionze.
But no where in all this free land
is there a monument to brave Ne
gro soldiers, 36,84 7 of whom gave
up their lives iu the struggle for
National existence. Even the ap
pearauce of the Negro soldier in
the hundreds of histories of the
war has always been incidental.
These brave men have had no cham
pion, no one to chronicle their rec
ord teeming with interest and in
st ct with patriotism.
A government of a proud pa
triotic, posperous aud tree people
would make a magnificent invest
ment by erecting, at the Capital of
the Nation, a monument dedicated
to its brave Black soldiers. The
large aud beautiful Government
Park, immediately in front of How
ard University, would be an ad
mirable place for a monument to
the 36,847 Negro soldiers who fell
in their country's cause. A com
manding monumeut made of south
ern granite surraouuted by a pri
vate a soldier in his great coat,
equipnieuts, fixed bayonet, gun at
parade rest, looking south toward
the Capital, would be most impres
sive. At the four corners the three
arms of the field service aud the
Navy would be represented. Pirst
figure, a Negro artilleryman in full
dress uniform, with tolded arms
standing by a field piece. Secoud
figure, a cavalry mau iu full-dress
uniform, with spurs anil gloves and
saber unhooked at his left side.
Third figure, an infantryman in
full-dress uniform, accoutremeuts,
and musket in place rest. Fourth
figure, a Negro sailor in uniform
standing by au anchor or mortar.
Uu the mrst side ot the monu
ment, A grateful Nation conse
crates this monument to the
36,847 Negro soldiers who died iu
the Service of their country. '-The
Colored Troops fought nobly."
Ou the Second side of the monu
ment, They earned the right to be
free by deeds of desperate valor ;
aud in the 449 engagements, in
which they partictpated, they
proved themselves worthy to be
intrusted with a Nation's "flag aud
On the Third side of the monu
ment, -During the Civil War in
America, from 18(ji to 1850, there
were 178,975 Negro soldiers enrol
led in the United States yolim
teer Army. Of this number
99,337 were eulisted by authority
ot the Government, and 79,e38
were enlisted by the several States
