PUBLICAN PARTY TO CHEW THE HAN
COCK COLORED CLUB ELECTRIFIED.
The colored men of Sau Francisco have a
Hancock and English club of their own,
and two weeks ago soon after it was
started the roll included 75 members. At
a recent meeting of the club, Capt. Beverly
Dodson, a colored man, gave the boys "a
little talk," as he called it, and that little
talk contained so much truth, vigorously
and eloquently told, that it roused the lis
tenersto the greatest enthusiasm. In the
course of his remarks Capt. Dodson said
some things that it would be well for white
folks to hear and think over, and therefore
the Chronicle copies an extract from the
I am aware that the Republican party
seems to think that the colored citizens of
the whole country are in duty and in grati
tude bound to advocate, support and vote
for the candidates of that powerful organi
zation. Leading Republican speakers and
the Republican organs all insist and keep
it before the people that the colored voter
who refuses to support that party and its
candidates is an ingrate. Why the Repub
licans 6hould thus stigmatize the colored
man, who, in his conscience, believes it his
duty to vote for the Democratic candidates,
I cannot discern. To be an ingrate is to re
pay some great favor or obligation with m
gratude. Now, what great favor has the
Republican party ever done the colored
race which our race has not over and over
and over again abundantly repaid? What
obligation is there resting upon the colored
race in this country, from the Republican
party, which we have not more than lairly
discharged? I know I shall be answered
by the Republicans that it was their party
which emancipated the colored race from
bondage and put the ballot in their hands
lor their own protection as jree and equal
citizens of this great republic, In the
main this is true. But let us consider the
whole case as it stands. To do this we
must go back to the beginning. It will
take us a long way back ; but no matter
how far back we must go all the way to get
at the root of the subject and to start right.
Now, my good friends, in order
TO SET A PEOPLE FREE FROM BONDAGE
the fact must exist that they arc in bond
age. How did it happen that the colored
race are in bondage? Who imposed bond
age upon the race in this country? God
did not. It was the white man who did.
Who were the white men that did this
grievous injustice and terrible outrage to
our race in this country? I will tell you,
as truthful history tells me. You will fiud
the authentic statement in the works of the
great New England historian, George Ban
croft. He tells us that for two hundred
years the colonists of New England cap
tured and sold the Indians they had driv
en from the lands they seized for them
selves into slavery in foreign lands. And
also were they the first to institute, negro
slavery. It wa9 a Boston church going
merchant who first took slaves from Africa
to New England, and it was a Massachu
setts ship which carried the poor African
into that colony to sell them as slaves.
More than S00 years ago Boston merchunts
opened the direct traffic in slaves from
Africa. And that was the beginning of
negro slavery in America. Then, when
the war of American independence was
gained, and the thirteen states prepared to
form the republic of the United States, the
representatives ot Virginia and some states
in the convention that made the constitu
tion wanted to have the African slave trade
stopped, but the representatives from New
Hampshire and Massachusetts and Con
necticut insisted that it should be kept
open for twenty years longer, until 1808,
and they carried the day. Tho New Eng
land states voted to continue the slave trade
because their ships and their merchants
had the monopoly of the trafllce all to
themselves, and the New England people
got rich by taking rum from New England
and trading it for the slaves they sold to
the people of the south. It was by this
Infamous trado slavery was established
and kept up in the south. And this is tho
true history of the ilavo trade in the
United States, and how African slavery ex
isted in the south. Besides, tho people of
tho northern states
DID NOT EMANCIPATE THEIR TOOR SLAVES
at once, as they compelled the people of
the south to free their slaves. They passed
laws by which their slaves were made to
serve them until they were too old to earn
a living for themselves, and many of the
younger slaves were shipped away to the
6outh and sold there. So that tho emanci
pation of slaves in the north did not cost
the masters anything. They cither sold
their slaves when in tho prime of life to
southern masters or compelled all they
kept to work for them until they got all
work they could, and then cast them oil" in
their old age to shift for themselves.
So, when we come to examine history
and look at tho fucts in tho light of truth,
we find that it is people ot tho north who
owe the colored race tho obligation they
now try to put upon us. But wo must not
stop at this. Let us sec how these Repub
licans of the north acted during tho time
teey had supremo power in their own
states, concerning the colored race. Be
fore the war and while the war lasted they
had control of their, own states and of the
government. Did they give the negro the
ballot in all that time? No, they did not.
Did they elect colored men to office? No.
It was not until alter the war that they
gave the colored people the privilege of
the ballot. They first gave it to the freed
men of the south who were ignorant and
not at all so well qualified lor it as the col
ored people ot tho north were, who could
read and write and were accustomed to
freedom. It was not until 1869, five years
after the war, they ratified the fifteenth
amendment, which gave tho elective fran
chise to the colored people in every part of
the United States to vote.
Who have most profited by the elective
franchise to the colored people? In the
north wo never hear of a colored man go
ing to congress, and very few of them not
half a dozen have been sent to the state
legislature. How many of our people are
elected in strong Republican communities
to offices of high trust, honor or emolument
sheriffs, county clerks, mayors, alderman,
&c? I need not tell you that
NONE OF THEM HAVE EVER BEEN ELECTED
Governors or lieutenant-governors. Still,
they nearly all have always voted the Re
publican ticket, and they keep on voting it,
as if it wbb the only ticket they could vote.
It is about high time we should begin to
look about and do something for ourselves,
and to show these ungrateful Republicans
that we are men, not machines for them to
run as they direct; that we appreciate the
blessings of freedom, and with it are deter
mined to do something for ourselves, if only
to teach them that we are a thinking, re
flecting and manly people, as well as grate
ful and considerate for those who are our
friends and who honestly and earnestly
sympathize with us.
Tho constitution is the same for the
white man and colored man. It is the
same for all races admitted to citizenship
and all classes. It assures to us the same
as it does to every other race or class, the
liberty to vote as we please. If we cannot
do this, if we are oblige to vote as white
Republicans direct us to vote, our bodies
may be free, but our minds and our con
sciences are not free they are enslaved
and subject to the will and caprice of our
harsh political masters, who compel us to
do the voting by which they shall enjoy the
rich offices and feast on the fat of the land.
If it was for this we were invested with the
ballot, let them take it away it is a worse
form of slavery than that which our unfor
tunate race bo long endured in the
In conclusion, Capt. Dodson stated that
he believed that the Democracy were truer
friends to the colored race than the Repub
licans. Ho then caustically reviewed Gar
field's Chinese career and his corrupt rec
ord, and urged them all to vote for Han
cock and English, if only for ono reason,
and that was the anti-Chinese plank in tho

THE EQUITABLE LIFE
10 BROADWAY NEW YORK
The Popularity of the Equitable Life A.vsurance Society,
indicated by the fact that for Eleven years its average an
nual Xew Rusiners has been larger than that of any other
Company in the world, is due, in a great measure, to its well
known promptness in the payment of Death Claims, audits
rule never to take advantage of technicalities where an
equitable claim exists.
As a GUARANTEE of this, and to counteract the perni
cious influence of a technical policy, adhered to by many
companies, the Equitable makes ALL ITS POLICIES, old and
new, throughout the United States,
'After the policy has been in force for three years.
"The Equitable Life lias paid siiice its organ
ization to January 1st, .10, 851,882,736,"and
closed its Looks upon that date without a con
tested or past due claim."
