The following, from the Tiincx .Slur of

"1'he patriots engaged 111 wreaking jetty

invited by a committee of tlie Army of the
Cutnbtrlaml to deliver a memorial address
mi Gariield at Washington, display a some
what malevolent and vulturous spirit. That
irneral Keifer thrusts himself forward in
this matter, is a convenient assumption,
taken as an excuse for throwing a hatch of
gutter garbage at him. The thing has been
palpably overdone. To lie consistent his
critics cannot spare Garfield, who held
Keifer in close friendship,"
The following, as a Chicago stiecial to
the TimC'-SUtr of March 1st, indicates that
the presidential ticket suggested by the
Knr-riil.u Mime time ago, is booming:
Talks with travelers from Illinois, Iowa,
Wisconsin, Minnesota and other states who
hav e been found at the hotels here during
the past few- days. Indicate that the Sher
man boom is becoming quite pronounced in
thoe regions, and that it threatens to engulf
the Ulalne following. In Illinois especially
the Sherman movement is very strong, and
the organization of Miennaii clubs is being
talked of in many localities. The name
most generally mentioned as a ruiinning
mate for the thin statesman is that of Sen
ator Hawley. of Connecticut.
A prominent democratic manufacturer of

To the Colored People ot SprinetieM. Ohio
I The end ot the lieinnnmi; has come, and
I with It irreat joj to all who wcie made to
endure unjust discrimination on the basis
of color. It has been rein-atedly asserted
I by tho-e who are acquainted with tho school
j tiiht in Springfield, known as the "Oaf-a-
vvay case," that that was the bepmiiuc of
what we now enjoy and
commemorated. 1 was
to let m
daughter'-) ease be
used as the entering)
wedge to destroy "the discrimination
against colored children, under the name,
word or pretext of classitication." The
alx e quotation is fiom the icn of trustor
I'ringle, and n apiH-arttl In theCoimiicrrhil
Giirrttc .1 nne 14, lss:!. Mr. I'ringle was
one of the attorney s, and Is therefore pre
pared to give the true interest of the suit.
In bringing the suit in the 1'uitisl States
court at Cincinnati it was necessary to give
Umd for the cost. This I was not able to
do. and I was read to drop the case, and
I Intended to do s, and was preparing
to announce the same. I rci)rtcd to my
friends that a bond was demanded. I made
the same statement to Mr. lluford, who
having become enthused with the matter,
and who. In common with others believed
that the light would lesult favorabl, as
sumed thelmnd in connection with Mr. K.
Kdiiiomlson, with the understanding that it
w as a light for the (ifole. Had either of
the gentlemen told me, w hen they signed
the bond, tli.it they regarded the matter as
in personal obligation, orhad I understood
that the tight was my own individual tight,
there would have been no hghtat all before
the l S. court against W.J. White, siIikt-
inteiiilent, l me, because I did not con
sider myself able to carry on a disagree
ment of that magnitude alone, but on the
other hand, the public meetings held, the
cltirens'iinaiice committee with Jr, Iiuford
as treasurer. the cane presenta
tion to Mr. Clifton M. Nichols.
The enumeration of the colored children of
the city, ami the measuring of the distances
they traveled to and from school, and the
repeated, earnest solicitations to allow the
use of the name of my daughter, all this
caused me to believe that it was a light for
the whole community of colored children;
and in addition to all this the money col
lected and paid into the citizens finance
committee treasurer's hands, and bv him

1 attorneys and receipted for,
as funds paid
on account of "Gazaway suit" all this and
more, caused me to believe that the suit
was in the interest of the whole population
of colored children. I have been misrei
resented and slandered Invause of my re
fusal to assume to pay tuts ooml.
The matter of damage has lieen referreiU
to. 1 asked for no damages when th-p
matter was spoken of tome. I said that
money was not the object sought, but that
we wanted for our children tlieir rights in
the public schools. And had the suit been
won and damages paidv I fully intended to
return to every man every cent that he had
paid into the general fund.. for to carry on
the suiL I have the subscription book with
the name and amount of some of the sub
scribers. 1 have also the names tit the
citizens' finance committee. Mr. James
1! u ford, treasurer. And now, in conclusion,
I want to ask the citizens of Springheld of
color, to tell me what they want me to do
or what they are willing to do in this matter.
Mr Huford and Mr. IMmoudson should
not be coiniielleil to stand this loss. It is
wrong. If all will give a little, the aniout
which is -s:;, i-aii lie raised. Twenty live
cents each from three hundred and thirty -two
iier-suii" will settle the account ami give
the right jingle to our jollification. I sub
scribe live dollars; hav e paid a pari of it;
am ready to pay the balance when the
citizens shall have sin-ken.
