EXTENSIVE DEALERS IN
While we have nothing to ask
from the administration it is grat
ifying to us to state that compe
tent colored ladies and gentlemen
are being promoted to positions
worthy of their ability. When
secretary Lamar was made a cabi
net officer he was criticised and
condemned as being unfit for the
position. Although he is a dem
ocrat and once served in the con
federate army, we consider him
one of the fairest and just men un
der Mr. Cleveland's a'dministra
tion; A few days ago Mr. H. C.
Bruce, brother of Ex-register B.
K. Bruce, was promoted from a
$1,000 to a $1,200 position, also
was A. J. Linn and several
others. In the Patent office'there
is a young lady by the name of
Duffield, who is said to be a com
petent clerk. Under the republi
can secretary this lady was offen
sive to certain republican male
and female clerks, and who waB
transferred from the finance divis
ion to the file division, thence to
the educational division, thence to
the depredation division, thence
to pressing bricks for walker, sim
ply because she was distasteful to
certain republican clerkd. She
was reinstated by Mr. Lamar and
a few days ago promoted.
There are republicans in office

But divide- on the man who pledg

democratic administration under
obligation to the colored voter?
As we have heretofore stated, we
did all in our power to defeat the
party now in power, and we are
free to say that the colored office
holders, to an extent, are doing
well. While they have been re
moved in the states, it is because
they have allied themselves to one
party. The time has come for us
to be independent in politics
and while the veteran editor of the
agrees with us to a certain extent
he reasons well when he says that
while Mr. Cleveland is a good
man a portion of the democratic
party is bad. He is willing to
accord credit for what is being
done aud what will be done. This
able editor of the west has more
sound sense in two lines of his
writings than one third of the re
publican editors ;n the west. We
have before us a circular, giving

If the circular is correct, Mr.
O'Hara is the regular nominee of
the republicans in that district.
If the letter that was sent us and
published some time ago is cor
rect, Mr. Abbott is toe regular
nominee. With no disposition to
do either gentleman a wrong it is
hoped that the difficulty will be
settled to the satisfaction of the
republican voters in that district.
We have no knowledge of know
ing who is right or who is wrong.
We have always known Mr.
O'Hara to be an honest man and
a good representative in Congress.
We have heard excellent reports
about Mr. Abbott and it is to be
regretted that there should be two
republican candidates iu the only
republican district in North Caro

History says that when a detach
ment of the American troops went
to capture General Burgoyne they
found his room door locked but a
negro butted it open with his head.
It is possible that the skull of this
door-butting negro was more thick
and solid than' is common to his
race ; but it is really a physical
character of the negro to be thus
endowed with this means of aggres
sion. Nor is it likely would he be
better off if curtailed of this endowment.
It is said thatalong the coast of
Guincawhicli supplie the slave
trade in the United States, South
America, and the West India Is
lands, the negro is found to be in
a very rude state aud of repulsive
feautures, while further back, in
the interior, there are to be found
inauy tribes which like the Fan
tribe are "fine looking, warlike, in
genious and skillful in the working
of iron." What a picture was pre
sented at the village of Ujiji on
lake Tangauyeka, in the very
heart ot Atnca a lew years ago.
Not in the swamps or jungles in
vested by venomous serpents and
wild beasts, but on a beautiful
tabe land the home of the deer and
the gazelle, of luxuriant vines,
grasses and palms surrounding a
lake of very crystal stocked with
trout and bass and fifteen hundred
miles from either ocean. What do
we see? Here is the great English
man, Livingston, explorer, chris
tian who welded science and reli
gion together and was their em-body-ment.
Theu he stands Sunday morning
teaching the doctrine of the chris
tian religion to hundreds of uatives
with whom he had spent- many
months. They knew of JVIohainet
and some to read the Koran, but he
wished to teach them of his Christ
and to teach them also of the high
er civilization of the English peo
ple. While standing: there teach-

"Etheopia; shall stretch forth her

It used to be that every planta

conjurer or conjurer doctor, But
some how or other thes negro nia
gicions have grown to be scarce a,s
Whether Sherman's army had
any thing to do with breaking up
the conjure doctor's busines or
whether their gifts to work spells
or charms with roots, lizards, scor
pious etc., were taken from them
by the gods who once presided over
theircraft or whether they were
forsaken by their once credulous
patrons may not be determined.
Supersition has always vanished
before the sunlight of enlightened
christian civilization. Like or

the scrutiny of light. So after the
war the negro conjurer had to goto

Senator Bogy came to my desk and
explained that he was much inter

bill; there was nothing in it of a
political nature, and he invoked
my active assistance in to help him
pass the measure. He did not then
