schooi for t.0iored chil
sci10ol for colored children. This is
a connneuable act on the part of
the commissioners and something
which is greatly needed among the
people of color. There is a move
ment on foot among the
to control the next District Conven
tion for Mr. Blaine. The next re
publican Convention iu this city
will no doubt be a good one. From
present indications we predict two
sets of delegates to the next repub
lican convention. The contest will
be between Logan and Blaine.
Senator Logan is stronger in the
ei'y than Blaine and while the peo
ple have no vote and are given this
privilege to elect delegates to con
ventions, we are of the opinion
that if it is left to the voters Mr.
Logan will have a majority in the
next republican convention.
There has been a great deal of
unfair criticism against the child
Bliss Wiuuie Davis, because she
had been invited as one of the
guest to receive the president and
others who visited Eichmond last
month. Admitting that Miss Davis
is the daughter of Jefferson Davis
who conspired to over-throw the
Union, should his daughter b
held responsible? If Miss Davis
had been old enough to have been
taken in the confidence and coun
sels of the confederacy and aided
the rebels in the r conspiracy,
there would be sufficient cause lor
this unjust criticism that is going
the rounds of the pi ess.
If the daughters of Mahone,
Longs' reet and others had
been invited also as the guests of
Governor Lee at the time Miss
Davis was, would there have been
anything said? We wou'd have
the same right to say that Jeffer
sou Davis' body seivant is equally
responsible for the acts of his mas
ter. Those confederates who have
joined the republican party are
classed as saints, while those who
still chum allegiance to the demo
cratic party are condemned, in our
opinion one is just as good as the
other and as iar as parties are con
cerned it is to the interest of the
colored voter to deride.
Some ot our contemporaries seem
to have a wrong idea of our posi
tion. Wo are no democrat but an
Amnrioan citizen. We believe iu
the principles of all parties so long
as those principles are in accord
with sight and justice. So far as
the colored voter is concerned he
has become to learn something.
He finds that his salvation is not in

We left the city of magnificent
distances tast S.tur lay morning
for the purpose of buying a t.ew

material as is needed to meet the
.good tase of our customers and
the public generally. Our fore

do i't put their wedding invita

be a row. Not desiring to offend
thore. we come to the con-luaion
to give them just what they desire.
After completing our woik we
called at the office of the

Jones and S'ill. Gardner was, of
course surprised to see us. B'ro
ther Gaidner not of the L:me
Kiln fame, related his trials and
tribulations. We regretted to
learn that he had tw lib 1 suits
on hand, but he didn't care worth
a cent. Brother Jones in a phil
osophical maimer gave us his
views on the political outlook in
the Btate. He supported the pro
hibition ticket from principles aud
thought that it was time for the
Nesjro to act. After remaining
sometime we left iu search of the
office. Our old friend Chris Per
On entering the office we
met Andrew F. Slade of Wash
ington. Andrew is well known
in the ci y of Washington. He
is from one of the best families,
and a mun who has a good heart
and a mild disposition who did all
in power to make our visit pleas
ant. Andrew accompanied us to
the depot about s:x o'clock in
sear, h of our foreman, whom we
left behind. The r.dti and snow
were fulling fast; and not finding
him there we left for 1234 Pine
street, Mr. P. Price's where we
met Chi is Perry. Mr. Price
keeps one of the best houses in
the city. He is gentlemanly in
his deportment and a man who is
held in p pular favor by all. Our

in tie city. I's departments are
fitted up in good taste and its

at 407 south 10th st. We met
one of the Negro southern blonds.
It was ascertained at this place
that Chris was one of the most
popular men in the city. Every
body knows him and he knows
eeiybody. The Tuesday night
club is conducted upon a high
toned order. One of the managers
is Mr. Jack.-on formerly of the
city of Washington. He is, as we
said, from Washington's best
stock. We next called to see the
Mr. Ball. He is doing good busi
ness, on Pine street. He is affa
ble aud one of the hisses in poli
tics. No one will bother thiB
distinguished politician. He de
mands instead of being subservi
ent to those who claim to hold the
Negro vote. Chris of the Tribune
would have us to pay a visit to
the ctcus and see the elephant.
He informed us that we could see
the beau'iful canary birds from
Washington at the sl.ow. , To
satisfy our curiosity we paid a
visit and to our surprise we were
recognized. Of course newspaper
men have more license than other
people and we hope that the
craft will not think wrong of us,
as we onlv looked at the show
through our wives opera glasses.
The colored people in this city are
doing well. They deserve credit
for their indu try and the'r fine
oganizations. We met many
famili.-r faces. Our old friend
John Marshall is htre doing well.
It will be remembered that he
married the daughter of Mr. and

would not permit u-j to pay a visit

THE DEMOCRATS DID NOT VOTE.
WOLF FAILED To CARRY THE AS
SEMBLY DISTRICT. THE COLORED
PROHIBITION CANDIDATE SNOWED
UNDER. NEWS &C.
Philadelphia, Pa , Nov. 9, '86.
The past week has been one of
surprises, to almost every one.
The eve of ihe election both par
ties claimed they would carry the
state, the prohibition party not to
be left out in the cold made a
counter 'claim that though they
might uor. win the governor, the
vote they would poll would show
that temperance was on the in
crease. When the vote was count
ed it was found that fully 40,000
democrats had not vo ed in the
state and that the republican's
candidates vote v ould approximate
50.000 maj rity, th s was the first
surprise; the second one was the
surprising small vote polled in
both city and state in the cause of
temperance, even their candidate
for governor the irrepressible
Wolf, failed to carry his own as
sembly district (he was also candi
date "for the legislature) but was
snowed under by a large vote.
The third surprise, and to our
mortification be it said the coiored
Candida e Rev. Palmer, was cut
more in those d.strics, where our
people are largely in the majority,
than in the white districts where
ne should have led the ticket,
he fell below the candidate
for governor. Both the republ can
and independent press are serving
our people in far from honeyed
words, and point to them the ex
ample of the labor movement in
New York, they also say, that if
this is the wav our people suppoit
one another, they ueed uot expect
to be again named on any ticket,
as they invite sure defeat. An
othei surprise was the glorious de
feat of ex-judge Briggs, the re
nowned republican negro hater,
though bolstered by the bosses
fell 40,0.00 short of the election.
Across the river oar Jersey breth
ren - hoped to elect a republican
governor though south Jersey
rolled up large majorities. Hud
son Co. with, one full swoop
swept them all aside, and went
several "thousands better. The
anti-Sewellites hoped to defeat
the return of Gen Sewell to the
U. S. Seuate. At this writing we
hold the legislature by a very
slender thread. , The congressional
delegation will stand five republi
caL8 aud two democrats, a gain of
one lrom this city. All the1 old
-var horses go back.
The Amphions of this city were
invited to sing in Gotbam, when
they reached the city they found
he parties were not going to keep
to the agreements they refused to
sing. To make matters worse Dr.
Derricks stated to the audience
the cause hat led to the recusal of
the Amphions to sing which was
at variance with the truth. This
brought the president Mr. Joseph
Hill to his feet who gave the true
reason, much to the discomfiture
of the reverend gentleman.
