THAT FATAL DINNER.
Congressman Patterson's Opinion on
the President's Entertainment
of a Negro.
Frem Commercial Appeal.
"To say that I am surprised and
grieved at the conduct of the Presi
dent is to put the case mildly; not
that Booker T. Washington is not
an honor to his race, for he is ; and
deserving of all praise and encour
agement for bis work. But I con
sider the incident as one of the most
unpardonable that has ever occurred
and one for which there can be no
possible excuse; for of all Presidents
who have lately been inducted to
the hisrh office none had more thor
oughly the confidence of the South
eru people and no sec'.ion of the
country had higher expectations for
the success of his administration.
We believed that he understood the
conditions which have confronted
the Southern people, since the war
and that he would not knowingly
give this affront to the pride of race,
or mark a precedent for social equal
ity. The Southern people cannot
and will not forgive this conduct of
the President. By it he has cut
himself loose from any possible
Southern sentiment in his favor,
for no self respecting Southern man
will ever tolerate such an action or
support such a man for the Presi
dency. The Southern people believe
in doing justice to the inferior race,
and I always tried, when an official,
to see that outrages against a help
less class should be properly pun
ished, but social equality is one thing
and justice to the negro race is quite
another. To preserve the social di.s
tinction between the two races is not
only necessary for the dominance of
the white race, but it is a measure
of protection to the negro himself.
On this subject we have taken a
stand never to yield.
'The negroes themselves do not
demand social equality, and they
will regret this unfortunate conduct
of the Executive as a misfortune to
"No promise of official patronage
or offices to be bestowed upon South
ern men will ever wipe out this deep
affront to their racial pride and in
stinct put upon them by the Presi
dent. . Mr. McKinley would never
have made this mistake.
President Roosevelt can never
set this fashion for the Southern
people, nor can he for the better
element of the North. If the Presi
dent of the United States fails to
recognize that the distinction be
tween the races must be preseived,
then all the South can do is to close
up its lines again and set its face
forever against the man and against
the sentiment that must destroy this
distinction. I, together with many
others, had hopes pf better things
from the President. I am sorry they
have been disappointed."
They're figHlin the battle all over again ;
The big guns are booming once more;
And Sampson to-day lingers far, far away
While Schley bears the brunt as before.
On the old fighter's track the entire snarling pack
Have followed with hue and with cry,
Till now, when he faces them all, they slink back
From the sight of brave Admiral Schley.
When heroes were needed he stood on the bridge
And met the proud navy of Spain.
He followed it on till the battle was won
And Its vessels went down in the main.
When heroes are honored he's slighted and spurn'd
While others are praised to the sky.
He yet is deprived of the glory he earned.
Our gallant old Admiral Schley.
Uut though he's insulted by puppets la power
The people are sl.w to forget.
They only await a more fortunate hour
To crown him in victory yet.
His fame is secure. When the scroll is unrolled
His name will he written on high
'Mid those of our gallant sea-fighters of old,
Hade brighter by Admiral Schley. -
The man who Is right can afford to repose
In the homage and love of the just ;
To reckon that Time is his friend; and his fo?s
At last will go down in the dust.
The victim of hate with assurance can wait
For wrong and detraction to die.
The world holds a crown of esteem and renown
For the brow of brave Admiral Schley.

It Happened in a Drug Store.
"One day last winter a lady
came to my drug store and asked
for a brand of cough medicine that
I did not have in stock," "says Mr.
C. II. Grandin, the popular drug
gist of Ontario, N. Y. "She was
disappointed and wanted to know
what cough preparation I could rec
ommend. I said to her that I
could freely recommend Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy and that she
could take a bottle of the remedy
and after giving it a fair trial if she
did not find it worth the money to
bring back the bottle and I would
refund the price paid. In the course
of a day or two the lady came back
in company with a friend to
buy a bottle of Chamberlain sCcagh
Remedy. I consider that a very
good recommendation for that
remedy." It is for sale by W. J.

Another week of ideal fall weath

cupied the attention of the farmer,
and it is needless to say that the
work progressed favorably, as did
also the work of picking cotton aud
gathering corn and other maturing
crops?" About half the area inteuded
for wheat has been planted, many
farmers having delayed planting
through fear of the Hessian fly,
which has already appeared in some
of the earlier sowings. The crop,
as a rule, will be put in better con
dition than ever before. The early
sowings, as well as those of rye,
barley and winter oats, are coming
up and looking healthy, except
where the fly appears, as noted.
' The corn crop, now being gath
ered, is, as a rule, short, but farm

great extent by having in good con

forage ever known.
Cotton picking has kept up well
