SHOULD DESIGNATE RACE.
Indictments I>o Not ?hW "Whether the
Party Is W/hlto or Colored.
The absence of nny provision 'tor In?
dicting 'the x:olor of a party to a pro?
ceeding lh|V?ttrti especially upon a
criminal Indictment, hns 'led to some
confusion in unnny Instances, and Is
lla'ble .to do so ut any lime. '
Legally, of course, the color of a
criminal, makes no difference, since the
law auakes no discrimination; hut It Is
desirable in many instances, if not in
all, to have the court record In the case
of -Indictments show-whether the defend?
ant !s white or colored.
There Is no law on the statute books
requiring court olllolnls to show upon
indictments -whether the party Indicted
Is'white or colored, nor Is there any law
against It. It would be a comparatively
easy matter, for Instance, to put a
small (c) In parenthesis,, nex.t to the
name of the party Indicted In case he
is colored, so that the race might be
known to a party seeking Information
from the court records. This could toe
done without making any allegation In
the Indictment that the person Is or Is
not a person of color, which might not
A day or two ngo nn account was
given in the Morning News of about
?twenty indictments tor various 'misde?
meanors, found by the City Court grand
Jury. I't was Impossible to Uli by an
examination of the Indictments whether
the .parties Indicted were white or col?
ored, and therefore It was not stated.
This led tb an Inquiry -from a stranger
in Savannah, ivho wanted to know why
t'he race was not designated, since, ho
said, any stranger might be led to be?
lieve that all of those indicted were
white ipeople. In making notes of his
?travels this ihnitter happened to attract
As a matter of fact out of the nine?
teen or twenty indictments found, only
three of the parties Indicted were white,
and all the others colored. This Is true
In both or the courts, it being Im possible
to tell from the Indictment of any of
the court records whether the parties
are while or colored.
Confusion is likely to result 'from this
state of affairs in other ways. There
arc many negroes who are found among
the criminal class who how the same
names as well kno-wn white people, u
?would be Impossible to tell from the
court record whether the party Indicted
Is .lohn Smith, white, or .lohn Smith,
colored, and in some eases John Smith,,
white, is liable to g. t the credit Pir It
with those who do not make a careful
investigation of such matters.
There would be no dilllculty, it would
seem, -with the officers of the court. In
making this distinction In the manner
Indicated, on the face of an Indictment.
Jt would furnish a court record which
would serve two purposes it would
furnish a record which would show the
percentage of crime as between 'the
races, and It would serve in part as o
means or Identification. It Is suggested
that the matter inlgh.t even be carried
further should any legislation on the
subject ever 'be adopted. The record
might show the race, nationality, and
nge of the party indicted, which would
serve to furnish a more complete idea

MAY USE TOTE ARGONAUT.
The Submarine Boat Offered for Use
A dispatch from Baltimore* Md.,
save: Simon Lake, the inventor of
the submarine boat Argonaut, has sent
a telegram tb Secretary of the Navy
Long offering the use of the vessel in
Havana harbor. Mr. Lake said that
the Argonaut could bo used In Unding
the cause of the explosion, getting
bodies, armament and stores on the
vessel, and In raising tbe hull. The
size of I ho vessel will permit her to
be dispatched lo Havana on a steam?
er's dock or on a Hal railroad car to
Key West In n. few days.
Her inventor claims that If mines
of torpedoes exist in Havana waters
he can find them and the wires attach?
ed. The ylctnlty of the wreck and the
damaged hull can be examined by the
electric search llghl in the Argonaut's
how, and if the waters are fairly clear
a photograph may be taken of the
tinder-water pan of the Maine.
By using the Argonaut divers can
work day or night in any kind of
weather, and get Ihe bodies from tno
ship's passageways and wreckage with?
out the danger attached to life and
a|r lines running to the surface of the
waters. The Argonaut hns a derrick
and her own engine will assist mater?
ially In removing the nrninment.
She will u!.-o be used to bore holes
In the si.Io of the hull, to which pon?
toons will be attached to raise the
Maine. Mr. Lake states that ir the
Hnvanians refuse to allow the Argo?
naut in their waters, he can enter the
locality, examine the harbor and de?
part unseen, if the Government should
Order him to do so. Th'' Argonaut
has made fifteen, successful descents in
Maltlmore waters. The vessel Is ftunk
by admitting water into ballast tanks
and raised by pumping the water .put.
The bow of the vessel contains air
locks and a door by which divers may
go out and in the Argonaut while she

WHITE HOUSE BLACKLIST.
Names or Uninvited Persons Who Crowd
into Receptions Procured?Con?
(Washington Special, St. Louis Globe
The White House Ins a blacklist. It
is an interesting souvenir of this sea?
son's receptions. It goes to prove that
there arc person'* who own line clothes
and who are not i--o thin-skinned as to
remain away front places-to which they
are not invited. The invitations given
this year to tho White House receptions
were prepared with unusual care. Lists
Of'the Invited were kept and cards \vera
Issued to individuals by name. The here?
tofore Indefinite ami Indiscriminate
"and ladies" was not employed. That
tin re might be no misunderstanding,
the secretary to the President; Mr. Por?
ter, and the gentleman associated with
him in the management of detail?, let
i; be known through the newspapers
that steps would be taken to detect any
who came without Invitations. But tho
method to be employed w:.s not ex?
The '.rap was set und it did its duty.
At one reception 213 persons who had
not been invited came to the White
H'ouUc and participated. At another af?
fair the number of uninvited present
was 150. The manner in which the in?
truders were detected Is interesting. As
usual, each guest on advancing to the
entrance of the receiving room was told
by an odiclal to "give your name to the
odicers, who will present you." The
name of each guest ivas culled out twice,
first by the officer Introducing to the
President and again by the oillcer who
made the presentation to Mrs. McKin?
ley. The announcing was done with
dl tlnctne'-K. But this year an attache
of the White House slbrtd in a secluded
nook and took down every name that
nfas called out. Comparison with the
roster, of the Invited was made subse?
quently, and In t.lii.- way the names of
the uninvited were singled out and the
