We w ill not tell hit name, but he was
one of the Randolph county delejrate.
and was a strong Deitrlch man. He had
heard that Deitrich was to lie shut out of
the convention, but he was iletermin,d
to do hi utmost tor his candidate out, a
well as in the convention. He met a
party of about fifteen darkles on the cor
ner of Sixth street and Commercial ave
nue, and immediately went to interroga
ting them, to ascertain how his man
stood in fhese part. Two of the party
were lor Deitrlch, every inc h ot them;
the balance were opposed to him. Dei
trich hal not yet Ireen nominated, but
w hat was the odds. He would he, and
the votes ot these darkies would not come
amiss in helping to send him to Washing
ton. Now the delegate was one of the
Republican who believes In the equality
of all men. He loves his colored neigh
bor a he loves himself, aim i nui, uienc
lore ashamed or too high-toned to either
eat, drink or sleep w ith him. lie asked
the w hole party into a saloon close by
and "set 'cm up nil round." The oppo
nents ol his man were still firm, he found
afler another interview, and he again
called for the drinks, nnd after waiting a
respectable length ol time, again sounded
Ovui. They Were invincible, and lie
calico. f(,r more drinks. In fact, they
were so elttermincd that he gave up bis
purpose and left, w ith the promise . to
meet them again ar.r Deitrich had been
nominated. The coiiiontion, however,
selected Wiley. The Randolph man was
somewhat disappointed, hut kept
his word with his coloid
friends, and evening found them
together once more. As we have said
before, their delegate Is a truly loyal
Republican, and his arguments were now
all for Col, Ben. He traeted his colored
friends freely, and began to display evi
dences of being "much tight." Two of
his sable friends took iu the situation aud
concluded to take him out for a walk.
It was now dark, and they escorted him
to the lower part of town, where they
put him to bed on the sidew alk. When
the representative ot Randolph awoke,
he was somew hat surprised and felt lor
his watch, a flue gold one, hung to his
vest by a costly chain, to see what, time
it was. But It wasn't there. He then felt
for his pocket book. That, too, was
minus. He then got Jup, found a police
man, related his case to him, and left for
home immediately, leaving the oflleer to
work up his case and recover the prop
erty, If possible.
