A COLORED HAN'S OPINION.
JIK HITS THE NAIL ON TEE HEAD
The amount of love and admiration en
tertained by the radical party, as represent
ed by the Evening News, is exemplified in
their comments upon the disaffection of our
talented fellow townsman, Judge Bird,
who it would apear, has had the courage to
thiak and act upon his own responsibility,
in matters political and otherwise. The
judge previous to the meeting at Chicago,
and before he had seen fit to exercise a
freeman's prerogative, was considered one
of the brightest jewels in the republican
crown, and was eulogized to the blue skies
above, as an intelligent gentleman and a
faithful worker in the canse. But
what a fall has their intelligent
and thoughtful colored man received!
Having proclaimed himself heartily in
favor of Hon. John II. Oberly, and as en
tertaining a decided regard for the unsec
tional democracy, he is met with hisses and
howls from his former admirers, and was
actually driven from tho ball at Chicago,
according to the report as published in the
News, Monday evening.
The article, mostly taken from the Chi
cago Tribune, was prefaced with some
"timely remarks" by the News' editor, to
the effect, that the democratic charge that
the negro was purchasable, was true and a
few other flings, which, of course, was en
joyed (?) by the colored men alluded too.
Now I want to know by what authority
does the News or any of its radical sup
porters presume to question the integrity of
Judge Bird, or intimate that he was pur
Has he not as much talent and integrity
now as was Ins, while supposibly support
ing a ticket, whoso followers never did
ought but snub and crush him)
Has uot the News, timo and again madly
and wildly asserted tho manhood and
especial houesty of the colored race,
and reiterated time and again, that
the colored man knew his rights as well as
any one, aud could not be bought?
Why this sudden change of base? I tell
you, my colored friends, that the only
foundation for this base and contemptible
attack upon one of the most intelligent col
ored men in Southern Illinois, is caused
simply by reasou of his coming out squarely,
and promulgating opinions, which he hon
estly cutertaius and which forsooth hap
pens to differ from the programme, which
the radical leaders have laid down for the
guidance of the colored voters.
I would ask in all candor why should we
not as a race, entertain thu kindest feelings
toward the Hon. John H. Oberly? As
Judge Bird truthfully said at Chicago, he
is a trtto cxponant of republican principles
sufficiently so at least to suit tho racci
whom lie has so benefited in this state. Is
it not a well-know fact that he, long years
ago, advocated .with all the talent and eu
ergy at his command tho perfect freedom
oft' .; .'iir schools of the stuto of Illinois,
i. -':. . .f race or color?
!i t do this in spite of tho most
vi 1' i isition coupled with threats and
ulin : s ho not not entitled to your es
1 conlldenco for theso battloings,
; ir rights, and bringing down upon
his. tta -otod head, tho execrations of thous
ands of hi political fiionds?
I can but think the colored man who
docs not cast his vote for John II. Oberly,
presents a spectacle at once ungrateful and
unjust, and displays a wanton degree of
ignorance of the service which that talent
ed and warm hearted gentleman rendered
in their behalf.
Stand by tho man who fought tor you, .
and show to tho world that tho spirit of ap
preciation still finds a resting placo within
I can't seo why tho colored voters of this
county should devote so much of their timo
and attention to tho republican straight
ticket now in the field. Surely the caucus
which placed that ticket in nomination had
but little regard for the desires of their
colored friends and adherants. When it
became known that a colored man was to
bo put in nomination for the office of circuit
clerk, the colored fraternity were promptly
notified that John Roevcs had secured a '
patent right upon that position, and that
"no niggers need apply." Other attempts
of the colored element to gain representa
tion on the ticket was promptly repelled,
and the whites finally allowed, without in
terruption, to concoct a list which they
barely hope will win the loaves and fishes. Ia
view of thso facts, it should not surprise
any one that the more intelligent of the
colored voter should possibly remem
ber theso slights and kicks, and
at the last day render some substantial as
sistance to the independent boys who
are in the field. At least it would seem
more manly tor the colored man to desert
and despise the organization which had
done nought but spit upon them, than to
cringe like a cur dog, and present the oth
I do not blame the sprightly editor of
the News for making so desperate a fight
against the success of the Independent
ticket. The failure of the Republican
cause in this county sounds the death knell
of his little paper, for without the county
patronage his paper could not survive ten
days. Of course this is tho fate of
the paper. The whole independent ticket
will be elected, and its success will dem
onstrate practically bow ungrateful de
feated politicians are in general, for what
little sympathy a consumptive campaign
daily obtains from its friends, who expected
success, mainly through its instrumentality,
cannot be utilized to any alarming extent.
The News has made a good fight, and while
it has been constrained, at times, to dip into
the republican slop bucket it has, in the
main, made a sprightly defence and done
all that its most ardent friends could hope
for. We shall all finally miss the News
and its editor, but truth is mighty and has
generally been uble to overcome ordinary
obsticles, and the demise of the little even
ing issue will only strengthen people in the
belief that the adage is infallible.

The Rev. C. A. Harvey, D. 1)., of the
Howard University, of Washington, has
addressed the following letter to Messrs.
II. H. Warner & Co., of Rochester, N. Y.:
Gentlemen: I take pleasure in stating
that I have for two years past been ac
quainted with the remedy known ns War
ner's Safo Kidney and Liver Cure, and
with its remarkablo curative efficiency in
obstinate and so-called incurable cases of
Bright's Disease in this city. In some of
these cases, which seemed to be in the last
stages, and which had been given up by
practicioners of both schools, the speedy
change wrought by this remedy seemed
but little less than miraculous. I am con
vinced that for Bright's Disease, in all its
stages, no remedy heretofore discovered can
be held for ono moment in comparison
with this. Respectfully
C. A. Harvey.

A Down Town Merchant having
passed several sleepless nights, disturbed
by the agonies and cries of a suffering
child, and becoming convinced that Mrs.
Winslow's Soothing Syrup was just the
article needed, procured a supply tor the
child. On reaching home and acquainting
his wife with what he had dono she re
fused to have it administered to the child
as sho was strongly in favor of Homm
pathiy. That night the child passed in
suffering, and tho parents without sleep.
Returning homo the day following, the
father found the baby still worse; and
while contemplating another sleepless
night, the mother stepped from the room
to attend to some domestic duties, and left
the father with the child. During her ab
sence bo administered a portion of tho
Soothing Syrup to the baby and said noth
ing. That night all hands slept well, and
tho little fellow awoke in tho morning
bright and happy. Tho mother was de
lighted with the sudden and wonderful
change, and although at first offendod at the
deception practiced upon her, lias contin
ued to use tho tho Svrup, and sufferinir cry
ing babies and restless nights have disap
peared. A single trial af the Syrup nercr
yet failed to relievo tho baby, and over
come tho prejudices of the mother. Sold
