WHERE WILL ALLEN GO? MO
Allen, the colorod man who was lately
arrested on the charge of stealing tht
funds from the treasury of the Colored
Grant and Wilson club, desires us to slate
that there Is now no danger of his ever re
turning to the fellowship of his Radical
persecutors. Ho believes thoro Is neither
truth nor honesty In tbelr party, and Is
glad that bis eyes have been opened, even
if the manner by which he was brought to
see was a little rough. Mr. Allen's future
political course hot not yet been deter
mined. Having abandoned Radicalism
because it is too dishonest, too corrupt, too
shockingly shameless, ho must soon get
Into the ranks of some other political
organization. He can't stay out. You
might as well ask a boy not to explode
fire crackors on the Fourth of July, a wo
man to not indulge In gossip, a fish to live
on dry land and eat straw liko an ox,
Radical orator or editor to not lie, as to
expect any niggor to refrain from politics
They liko political excitement. It is meat
and drink to them. A political
campaign to darkey is the
Fourth of July, Christmas,
circus and a wagon load of watermelons
combined; and therefore, Allen must join
a party. Tho Liberal party does not
pleaso him. He has been too long a Bad I
cal to take kindly to a candidate who is
designated as Honest Horace, and(tbere is
not about tho Liberal organization tbat
savor of the flesh pots so grateful to
colored nostrils ; but, thanks bo to Duncan
Blanton, that wiser man than was
ever Sancho Panza, Allen has a hope in
the Louisville convention. Ho bolieves
the Bourbon fellows will suit him; that in
co-operating with them he will be stray
ing a only little distance from the Radical
parly just far enough to get out of the
company of rascals, and not so far that bis
vote will do any injury to the principles,
he advocated, when be was charged with
robbery by Grant rascals and immured, or,
in plain English, locked up, in a dungoon
Therefore, wo believe wo may send to
Blanton tho cheering intelligence that bis
party is to bo dignified by the presence of
a colored man, who, it ne was cnargea
with robbery, is a bettor man Jthan most
of tho Radical allies of tho Bourbons, and
who, if he has no other merit, may at
least boast tbat ho has more political sense
than the political idiots who compose the
organization of the Duncanites, who have
no principles and are too stubborn to con
sent to bo less than stupid or anything
but the tools of Grant and tho Radical
