There will he several changes in
when t&e new Public Printer takes
charge. We are of the opinion
that the colored people will find as
as good a friend in Mr. Benedict as
they found in Mr. Eounds. The
colored employes of the Printing
office have lost too good friends,
Mr. Pounds and Mr. Cadet Taylor.
No men have been more favorably
disposed toward the colored people
than' these two gentlemen. The
report that the new Public Printer
is inimical to the Knights of Labor
hardly is true. The newPublic Print
er and chief clerk are practical prin
ters and will conduct the office
upon the same business basis as
Mr. Rounds has done. The ap
pointments made by the president
thus far have turned out to be very
good men, and when he makes an
appointment that is not suitable he
readily recalls the appointee. The
Virginia Normal and

coming to be a success. Prof. Lang
ston has proven himself to be a
great acquisition to the colored peo
pie of Virginia. It is predicted
that Prof. Langston will come to
Congress within the next two years.
His deportment and management
of the college have made him quite
popular among the people. There
is no race of people upon this
Globe who committ less crime than
the colored people. The white
press of the country can only see
the faults of the colored people
and let pass the outrages commit

The president has returned to
the city much improved. There
were several appointments made,
although the president was enjoy
ing a season of rest. The
NEW SCHOOL YEAR
promises to be one of success. Our
school trustee will enter upou their
work with vigor. The new trus
tee of the 7th school division
should look diligently in that divis
ion and make reforms that are
greatly needed. The case of Miss
Thorton should under go a thorough
investigation and if it is ascertain
ed that she was illegally lowered,
she should be put back and allow
ed to enter the formal school. If
there are any who have been fa
vored by being pushed forward,
they should be compelled to go
back and Miss Thorton allowed to
goon. The people expect to see
the new school board do something
that will elevate the schools. We
also desire to call the attention of
the new school board to the ap
pointment of a lady who eutered
the teachers examination and fail
ed, notwithstanding she was re-appointed
and is still allowed to teach.
She has demonstrated her inabili
ty to distinguished the difference
between a simple, and compound
expression in grammer. This teach

TIIIIEE COLORED MEN" EJECTED FROM
A CAR BY A WHITE MOB.
Mr. Editor :
There is nothing like being a
modest man. There are so few of
them. It is auomoly to see one.
So very true is this that we hold
up our hands in holy horror when
one rushes to the frout. Such a
man is my friend Mr. Kelly Miller.
He has not been satisfied with the
modest iace tnac u oci nas given
but has assumed another. Thus in
this doubled face policy he signs
his name to au article published in
your last issue. There can be but
two reasons which he "hatched in
his own mind in justification of
what he deemed a timely response.
Neither of which is consistent,
either of which is rediculous. The
first is he thought himself the on
ly geutleman ot ability who could
counteract the impression made by
an article which I wrote Aug. 2Sth,
ou the capacity of a scribe. O how
modest ! The second is that it was
a burning desire to see his name in
print. The first savors of an offen
sive egotism, the second of fruit
less vanity. I was about to add
another reason, that Mr. Miller de
sired to gain favors from certain
members of "money, brains and
influence," but I will not for in do
iug so I shall be immodest.
Having said the usual courtesy
of debate let me repeat the words
of the secretary of the allumni.
"The records of this organization
would not fill a piece of paper biff
enough to light an Irishman's pipe."
I suppose my friend is acquainted
with that office as he has held it
since June '86. I appeal to the
last visible spark ot an idiots' rea
son to see whether or not a charge
of "remissness and inactivity"
could be sustained under such a
condition of affairs. Add to this
that no account was taken of Mr.
Forrest's death for more than a
year. I could go on further to
show the hollowness and charactei
istic indifference of this so-called
alumni, and shall do so if my friend
and colleague keeps up his pluck.
But I neither wish to become pop
ular or burdensome. I have writ
teu simply to answer the modest
charge of indecency, indiscretion
(From the Augusta, Ga. Sentinel.)
Under the caption "Dusky
Dudes Hustled out of a white
Coach at Geneva" we find the fol
lowing in the Savannah Morning
News of the 26th:
"Macon, Ga., Aug. 25 A rath
er sensational incident happened
on the train arriving here from
Columbus this afternoon. Among
the passengers who got aboard at
Opelika "were three Negro dudes
whose color was but little darker
than white. They entered a first
class coach and took seats among
the lady passengers. Soon as the
fact was discovered all the passen
gers huddled together in the front
part ot the car, ieaving-the dudes
isolated in the lear. Knowing
the c inductor was powerless to
remedy the matter one of the pas
sengers telegraphed ahead the fact
to his friend at Geneva. When
the train arrived there, the friend
was on hand at the depot with
several able bodied assistants.
They entered the car where the
dudes were and collaring them,
ejected them with threats and a
manner of very persuasive charac
ter. The dudes were followed in
to a second class coach and there
told that if they reentered the
coach before they got to Macon
they would be killed. Thinking
the Geneva contingent was really
on the train to see if they did re
euter the car, the dudes remained
obediently in their places until the
train reached this city, where it
was developed that the principal
dude was W. O. Brown, who was
enroute to Macon to marrv a eirl
named Addie Wallace to morrow
morning, and that dudes two and
three were his principal grooms
From their own publication we
gather this idea that a party of
respectable colored gentlemen,
which is more thau can be said of
the Geneva mob, entered a first
class car with first class tickets ou
(New York Freeman.)
As the campaign proceeds in
Maine the interest grows more in
tense. Mr. Blaine's strictures on
the Temperance people have stirred,
up a hornet's nest. The Prohibi
tionist speakers dog Mr. Blaine's
footsteps wherever he speaks aud
are making it decidedly warm for
him. The Temperance people
seem now to be the main thorn in
Mr. Blaine's side.
IT IS NOT SO.
We will do what no other paper
published by colored men has dar
ed to do give the great Catholic
church a hearing, and show that
it is worthy of at least a lair con
sideration at the hands of our race,
beiug as it is the only place on this
Continent where rich and poor
white and black, must drop preju
dice at the threshold and go hand
in hand to the altar.
THE TICKET FOR ?88.
John Sherman for President and
Frederick Douglass Vice Presi
dent. This is our ticket for 1888.
What do you say boys? Staunton
That ticket will do well enough to
be set up and knocked down by
Grover Cleveland for Preaid&jt
and Arthur P. Gorman for Vice
President. We predict the nomi
nation and electiou of the latter
ticket in 1888. It will command
t he support of thousands of colored i
-. e .
WE AGREE WITH YOU.
Some of our exchanges may as
well hang up the fiddle and the.
bow and stop making presidential
nominations for the Republican
party. JSTot that the unsolicited
wisdom would in the least amount
to anything, but it will save some
disappointment and mortification
to see how far away they have
struck the inwardness of the; thing
Mr. Blaine has gone into the
Maine canvass to lei a good many
of his "frien dB" know that he is
not the dead duck for presidential
honors that he has been lately con-'
sidered. He is putting up a might
y big stake in assuming to elect -a
Republican Governor for Maine
this fall. All things tend to show
that he looks for the Tatibrja
nomination in 1888. r :':
