OUR WEEKLY REVIEW.
THE K. OF L. CONVENTION. MR.
BLAINE IN PENNSYLVANIA. CELE
BRATINa THE FREEDOM OF CUBAN
SLAVES. A LARGE MEETING AN
TICIPATED. THE LABOR CANDI
DATE. THE INDUSTRIAL EXHIBI
TION. THE RECORDER OF DEEDS
AND HIS 0PP0SERS. NEWS, &C.
The Knights of Labor conven
tion, which is in session at Rich
mond, Ya., up to the time of this
writing has been very successful.
There is one thing that should be
considered by this organization
and that is to eliminate all preju
dice in the Painter's union and
miuw cuiureu men iddb aairiiireUT
We understand that there is a
great deal of prejudice againBt
colored painters, that they cannot
join the Painter's union. If Mr.
Pewderly will exert his influence
and demand the admissiou of col
ored men in all organizations he
will he doing a worthy thing.
From what the dailies say,
was enthusiastically received in
Pennsylvania. HiB canvass has
been a most successful one. It
is perhaps, conceded that he will
be the republican nominee for the
presidency iu '88. Mr. Cleveland
will no doubt be nominated by
his party as an endorsement of
his administration. Of the two
men we are of the opinion that a
majority of the Negroes will sup
port Mr. Cleveland. There is a
general uprising of independence
among the colored voters in this
country; they have commenced to
realize the fact that it is better for
them to support men and not
party. This is the sentiment that
we desire to see manifested among
the colored voters. The 2d Bap
tist literary association has about
completed arrangements to cele
tie effect. The recorder's office
has never in the history of its ex
istence been conducted as well.
The office is conducted differently
now, there is some system about
the place. The Senate should
confirm him immediately on its
assembling. Should the Senate
fail to confirm him, we would
Suggest that the President appoint
Mardhal Wilson to the office of
recorder of deeds and let Mr.
Matthews succeed Mr. Wilson.
This will be a great rebuke
'to the Senate which opposes a
man simply because he is a colored
MR. E. M. HEWLETT
one of the talented lawyers before
the District bar, who was arrested
on a warrant sworn out against
him by one Felix Quauder, who
employed him some time ago,
and gave his stock as a fee
has been honorably acquitted. It
seems that the case of Mr. Hew
lett was concocted by a few pre
judiced Negroes and white
men to ruin his reputation. He
is a young man who has the re
Bpect and confidence of the entire
community and this charge
against him was an attempt to
persecute him. The evidence was
just" the same as it was at first,
which should have acquitted him
without being submitted to a jury.
At any rate he has been honorably
acquitted and the seal of condem
nation and rebuke placed against
the demagogues who attempted to
ruin his reputation. Mr. Hewlett
is not the man to iniure or harm
any one. He is a gentleman and
an honest man. The Bee tenders
to him its congratulation for
victory over a pusilanimous set of

EMANCIPATION OF CUBAN SLAVES.
Several distinguished gentlemen
have been iuvited to speak and
there is no doubt but that the oc
casion will be one ot the grandest
in the history of the colored peo
ple. Why there should not be slav
ery is a question which has been
solved by the abolitionists. It is
a disgrace to any government and
a crime to civilization.
THE INDUSTRIAL EXHIBITION
is still in progress at Bethel hall.
It is not patronized as it should
be. An enterprise of this kind in
any other place but this city
would be well attended and sup
ported. Dr. Watts and the other
managers of the affair certainly
deserve the respect aud plaudits
of the entire community irrespec
tive of color. It is true that we
have had many entertainments in
this city, but there have been uone
that has given satisfaction equal to
this exhibition. The petition
that is in circulation to be present
ed to the Senate in opposition to
the confirmation of
RECORDER OF DEEDS,
J. C. Matthews, will have but lit-
peopleto those" parts ojfa thea"
tre which are habitually reserved
for the whites points unquestiona
bly to social equality. Social equal
ity means miscegenation.
The opposition to social equality
as the avenue to miscegenation is
simply the assertion of the deter
mination of the white people to
keep their race pure for their own
sake, and for the sake of the coun
try. Charleston News & Courier.
When 1 another Earthquake.
In Gods name where on earth will
you find a more general race mixt
ure than in the city of
Charleston? Miscegenation in all
that word implies has been in
vague throughout the Southern
States for generations, aud not
through any desire or attempt on
the part ot the Negroes of that sec
tion to force social equality, but
through the base and immoral us
sages of the so-called "first famil
ies themselves, tor lost and gain.
Does sitting alongside of a Negro
in a public hall bring about this
dreaded intercourse ? Is it a cus
tom even among whites to scrape
acquaintances in public places of
amusement? or are not those ac
quaintances brought about through
mutual consent and not by force,
or legislation ? There is ten fold
more danger In the prevalent south
ern custom of colored mistress
keeping, in raising up a mongrel
class, than by respectable people
assembling under the same roof in
a public place of amusement, what
ever their color may be.

Hampton, Ya., Oct. 16th, 'SG.
The little temple of Justice over
which Squire Darden presides was
packed with colored Republican
Statesmen yesterday afternoon for
aboat three hours, the occasion be
ing the trial of Jake Skinner, Sam.
Simpson, Jim Taylor, and Peter
Herbert, four well known colored
politicians of Anti-Bowden tenden
cies, upon the charge of breaking
up a meeting at Buckroe last
Thursday eyening. Mr, P. S. Col
lier representod the prosecution and
ex-Judge Jno. Booker the accused :
these two gentlemen though mem
bers of the same political family
have been at draggers drawn for
many years and this fact coupled
with the circumstances of the case
drew a good house. R, M. Smith
commissioner of the 'Revenue testi
fied that he went to Buckroe by in
vitation to speak, that the cowd
from Chesapeake City led by the
accused came down with a drum
and fife and raised such a racket
that they could not carry out their
intention, that if they had been
Democrats they could not have met
with a more repulsive reception,
that he tried in every way to get
them to listeu, even talking Christi
anity to them but they were deaf
to his appeals. Witness said that
if they had have carried a crowd
from Hampton with them the under
taker would have had a pretty good
job the next morning ; that it was
a bad conducted affair aud a great
deal worse than the Court House
meeting of last Saturday. F. S.
Collier for the prosecution testified
to the same effect.
The accused were then allowed
to testify and Jake Shinner took
the stand : the meeting he said was
irregular, but they did not go there
with the intention of raising a rowj
the witness carried on quite a
lengthy argument with the counsel
for the prosecution, the burden of
which was that they were freemen
and had a perfect right to do as
they did. Sam Simpson took the
stand and delivered a regular
stump speech to the infinite amuse
ment of the audience : the Hamp
ton crowd, he said, had come down
there to-"bulldozo" Chesapeake;
Bob Smith and others wanted to
draw the color line, and he was
dead against it ; he got his prosper
ity from the white folks, and he
wanted 'em all to live together in
peace; he didn't interfere with any
body at the meeting, but when de
boys saw Simpson dee looked like
dey was in a trance; they didn't
want any outsiders coming down
there with their h h tricks. Jim
Taylor was even more bitter in his
denunciations of the Hampton
crowd, and informed this reporter
that he would rather see every office
turned over to the Democrats than
that they should be longer con
trolled by a d d ring. Taylor
is an old "stager," and was conspic
uous in the politics of Norfolk city
lor a number of years after the war,
and says in 1869 in that city he had
his head broken in helping Bo wden
to escape from a mob. He says
Bowden is a fraud.
During the argumeut of the case
Booker used the word muzzling,
when .Collier turned on him and
denounced him sharply for his ac
tion when Judge during the De
zendorf independent canvass, in
binding John Davis and John Ones
man over to keep the peace, in the
interest of his party, charging sub
stantially that the records showed
that he had prostituted his office to
politics. Booker replied that the
matter had been investigated and
that he had been vindicated.
Collier in his argument charged
that Thursday night's work was the
result of a conspiracy, and that the
accused were furnished with mon
ey and whiskey by men who dared
uot come out openly.
" Justice Darden fiually bound the
accused over to keep the peace,
aud'sent them on to the Grand
Jury for Indictment. There is great
excitement among the negroes, and
the Republican party in this sec
tion at present is anything but a
happy family. Hampton Ya. Monitor.
