THE EQUITABLE LIFE
Assurance Society of
1 BROADWAY NEW Y O K !.
The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated by the fact that for Eleven years its average an
nual New Business 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, anil its
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 since its organ
ization to January 1st, 1880, $51,882,736, and
closed its books upon that date without a con
tested or past due claim."
The Equitable Life Assurance Society was the first to in
TONTINE SAVINGS FUND POLICY.
And thereby to popularize life insurace to a degree before
By the late report of the Insurance Commissioner for the
states of Massachusetts and New York, the Equitable Life
Assurance Society shows the following strong points:
FIRST The Equitable has a larger ratio of assets to lia
bilities than any of the leading companies.
SECOND The Equitable saved more of its income last year
than any other company.
THIRD The Equitable's death rate was less last year than
any other of the leading companies.
FOURTH The Equitable realize a higher rate of rent, or
interest, on real estate than any other company.

TOTHECOLORED PEOPLEOF ALEX
We have lived among you for years, ami
claim to know something about you. We
desire your real welfare, and to this end
wc wish to say a few plain words to you.
The southern people, your former masters,
some twenty years ago, when many of you
were children, reMled against the federal
government and precipitated upon the
country a devastating civil war that lasted
for years with varied success, but resulted
finally in the triumph of the Union torces
and the suppression of the rebellion. Pend
ing tins mighty struggle for national su
preraacy, as a war measure purely, you
were declared a free people, and by subse
quent constitutional amendments and legis
lative enactments you were made citizens,
given the elective franchise, and, otherwise,
made the equal of the white citizen so far
as it was possible to do so by constitutional
or legislative enactment.
While, in fact, your freedom was a mere
incident of the war you have been taught
to believe, aud we know honestly too, that
the republican party, as such, and exclusive
ly, tought for your freedom and are your
Believing tins to bo so,as a grateful peo
ple, which wc know you to be, you have
from that day to this looked up to the re
publicans as your benefactors and only truo
You have been under their exclusive in
fluence and guidance for the last fifteon
years aud you have worked for them faith
fully and earnestly and done whatever they
have required of you, even at the sacrifice
in some instances of your own honor aud
manhood. Now let ub ask you what have
they during all this time done for you in
Here in this congressional district you
have during this entire period, whenever
they were in the ascendant, held tho bal
ance of power. To you they are indebted
for every representative thy have had in
congress, and for every other office they
During all this time you havo hadiiien
among you of your own race more than
the equal of any of their nominees and yet
they have never given you a place on
That John J. Bird, William T. Scott,
and others wc might mention, are more
than the equal of your present representa
tive in congress, in any point of view you
take them, n't one who knows them
will dony, and yet none of them,
though Mr. Bird once really desired
it, have evor been given even a place on
thoir legislative ticket or any othor ticket.
They sent to your pcoplo in the south, Im
mediately after tho war, unprincipled vaga
bonds and political adventurers long since
consigned to oblivion, who inaugurated
among them carpctbagism by which they
wero not only robbed of their scanty earn
ings through the machinery of a Freed
mau's bureau but by it tho socds of strife,
envy aud hatred botwecn them and tho
southern whites, thoir natural friends, wero
persistently and systematically sown broad
cast throughout tho country, resulting in a
rich harvest of bloodshed v and crime.
Through eight long yean carpotbagism was
kept alivo by watering it with the blood
of your peoplo, shed In conflicts between
them and the whites, deliberately planned
and brought about through tho instrumen
tality ot theso cold blooded heartless polit
ical adventurers, sent among them for that
express purpose. But more recently tho
party who controls you, to promote their
own selfish purposes and gain tor them
selves lucrative official positions, have tak
en your people from thoir homes in tho
south where, 6incc freed fromcarpetbagism
they have been doing well, and distributed
them like so many cattle in Kansas, Indi
ana, Ohio and ' wherever else they
needed them for the purpose of carrying
What have your people received for all
this, except the mere pittanco given them
to defray expenses during the time they
were doing this dirty work for them? Do
you know that in doing this they wero
leading your peoplo into crime punishable
in the penetentiary, corrupting their morals
and debasing them as a people? Can yo
reasonably hopo to ever accomplish any- '
thing for yourselves as a people, while yotj
submit to the guidance ot such a party and
allow yourselves to be used for such ignoble
purposes? lias it ever occurred to you that
you are in political slavery? If not, stop
and think about it for a moment. You
ask us if it will not be just as bad, if you
should all go over to the democratic party!
Yes, if they were to use you in the samo
way it would bo equally as bad. As one
who wishes you well we would not have
you all go into any one party. To do so
would be conclusive evidence that you wero
the mere tools of that party. What wo
would have you do is to liberate yourselves
from the slavery of party and begin to think,
and act for yourselves.
When you begin to do that you will
yourselves, just like the whites, divide bo
twecn the two great parties.
Some will think one way and some an
other; some will join one of the parties jtnd
some the other.
When you begin to do this and act upon
your honest convictions as to what is best
for the country and your people, then tho
good people of all parties will begin to
respect you, and acknowledge your fitness
for citizenship, and you yourselves will
then begin to realize that you were made
for a more noble purpose than to be tho
mere tools of any party.
Your Birds, Scotts, Shorcses, Taylors,
Gladnevs and many others we might men
tion, are men of fine sense, and somo of
them, men of culture, and tho wonder has
been with us for years past, that they have
not before this, declared their own inde
pendence and burstcd assunder, tho fetters
that bind them and their people, in this
most humiliating political slavery. They
should denounce it from tho pulpit, tho
rostrum, the lecturer's desk, yea; from
the very house tops! until their people see it
in all its odious deformity. When tho
eyes of your people are once opened
to the wrongs that have been and are
being done you by your political leaders,
they will no longer be insulted and de
graded by being forced to take a pre
tended oath to vote a straight republican
ticket, or any other kind ot ticket. No
man who has any sense of decency or re
spect for you would ask you to go through
the idle form of such pretended oath which
cither to take or observe is almost sacri
lege in the sight of Qod. No one is bound
by such pretended oath cither in law or
morals and it is a lasting disgrace to the
man who keeps it.
Let us add in conclusion. Declare your
selves free. Begin to think and act for
yourselves. Tie yourselves to no party.
Assert your manhood by acting politi
cally upon your individual convictions.'
If you want office put out your
best men aud you will then seo who aro
your friends. If you wait for the hungry
horde of office seekers who control your
conventions to give you a place on their
ticket you will never get one. We appeal
to you if this is not so? They have been
telling you to our knowledge for the last
ten years "the time has not yet come for
you to havo office." And wo toll yoo
now if you wait for them
to say the time has come it will never come
till you are all laid in your coffins.
Finally, wo ask you, wo entreat you to
take a new departure Tho futuro ot your
peoplo aud race depends upon your action.
Begin tho noble work now by declaring
your political independence. Live up to the
declaration, and tho good of all parties
will respect you. You will have tho approv
al of your own consciences, and Qod will
aid you and crowu your -efforts with final
