NEGROES AT WHITE HOUSE.
Mr. Scott, of Knosas, Charges That
Cleveland Once Dined a Kansas
During the consideration of the
District of Columbia appropriation
bill in the national house of repre
sentative. on Monday Mr. Scott. of
Kansas, made the . declaration that
a negro had dined at the White
House with President Cleveland
during the latter's first administra
tion. The statement was prompt
ed by a reference by Mr. Gilbert. of
Kentucky, to the dining of Booker
Washington at the White House.
Mr. Gilbert and others on the mi
noritv si(le said they had never
heard of the incident. and when
the name was demanded MNlr. Scott
said it was C. H. J. Taylor. who
was appointed by President Cleve
land as recorder of deeds for the
District of Columbia.
Referring to the declaration of
a Republican platform for "free
dom and equality." Mr. Gillbert
mentioned the retention of Mrs.
Cox as pGstmaster at Indianola.
Miss.. and the apointment ot
Crum as -collector at Charleston. S.
C.. and he made reference to the
dining of- Booker Washington at
the White House. undertaking to
describe the seating of the Presi
dent's family at the table.
Mr. Scott, of Kansas, asked Mr.
Gilbert if he would criticise a demo
cratic president if he should have a
negro dine with him as severely as
he criticised President Roosevelt.
"An impossible. assumption." de
.clared Mr.- Gilbert.
Mr. Scott asked him if he did
-not know that a negro dined at the
.White , House during President
Cleveland's first administration. to
which Mr. Gilbert replied that the!
democrats were not particularly
claiming \Ir. Cleveland and that
he was not a frst-class democrat.
Mr. Scott then said that C. H. J.
Taylor. a negro from Kansas, was
brought to Washington and wa
taken to the White House when
Mr. Cleveland invited him to dine
I him. which invitation. he said.
Mr. Scott drew a contrast be
tween Washington and Taylor.
sav!in the forimer was a man of
reco::nized ability and had been the
<guest of ditnuse peopleit
home and abroad. including Queen
\'ictoria, and declared that the lat
ter had nothing to commend him
.save the claim that he carried the
democratic iegro vote in his pocket.
He said further that Taylor hd
been appointed to a p-sition In
Washington. "And by Clevln d,
