Washington, D. C., March 4.
Those southern Senators and Repres
entatives in Congress who defended
the presiden't for discharging with
out honor the negro soldiers partici
pating in the Brownsville, Texas, riot
are considerably wrought up because
of the contemptible manner in which
they- have been thrown down by the
Chief Executive and his Secretary of
War in the matter. douthern Demo
crats were sincere in their defense of
the president, and they believed him
sincere i, his action in discharging
the troops. It is now a matter of
common gossip in Washington that
Senator Foraker, of Ohio, has made it
so warm for .the president that he
has been compelled to make an effort
to right himself with the colored race,
and in ordor to do so has had the
Judge Advocate-General of the Army
secretly prepare an affidavit for the
dismissed negro soldiers to sign in
order to be reinstated in the Army.
The affidavit sets forth that the
soldier signing same took no part in
any rioting at Brownsville, and that
he knows of no soldier who did par
ticipate in the affair. Every one of
the dismissed negroes signing this af
fidavit has been reinstated to his old
position in Uncle Sam's Army, and
may go forth ad slay other white
people objecting to his attempts at
social equality. This action. on the
part of the president has practically
destroyed all confidence southern men
had in him. They realize that he is
not to be trusted in anything he does
or says. They have wanted to be
lieve him honest, sincere, and pat
riotic, but this latest throw-down has
been too much for them. They now
consider him a tricky politician who
would stoop to any low act that would
inure to. his personal benefit.
The leather industry contributed
150 million dollars to the foreign com
merce of the United States in the
year 1905, against less than 55 mil
liong a decade earlier. These figures
supplied -by the Bureau of Statistics
of the Department of Commerce and
Labor, combine imports and exports
of leather and its manufactures and
imp-orts and exports of hides and
