Tho following artiolo on tho famous
Bookor Washington dinnor is from tho
Brooklyn Defondor, whioh is editad by
II. 0. 0. Ast wood, a oolorod man:
Tho Bookor T. Washington inoidont
at tho Whito Ilouso, in our judgmout,
is ono of tho most unfortunate incide n tn
that bau happened in national politioal
affairs B?UOO llooonstruotioo. It ia
1 i ko tho premature onfranohiscmont of
tho raoo that brought about tho irro
proEBiblo ooL?iot, sod tho oarpot-bsg
rugimo in tho South that oauaed sec
tional animosities, that has coot al
most a fb? of blood. Horo worship is
a bad thing anyway, and whothor wo
try to deify man or idols, oor.il ats aro
almost euro to como. This Btorm hon
buen coming for nemo limo and wo
have been predicting it. Tho writing
of thia editorial will ba junt an muon
misuudeijtood by tho odored people
generally, and rho hypooritioal and
mawkitth nowepapcro of tlio North,
aa President liocs/velt waa misunder
nixed by tho pens?t ional peupla atd
newspapers of tho South, Wo will bo
abused and traduocd just aa tko Presi
dent iu being traduced by raab South
ern oriticiam, and as tho South is be
ing tracucod and abu?ed by tho newB
parora of tho North, and jot wo (dial)
bave tho courago to write it. Wo arc
loid by our best friends that it will kill
our chances for a Federal poaitiou.
Well, it may; but tho truth must bc
told. Leadoi? aro born and not orentod by
mon. Tho odored raoo bas not boon
allowed to nicko or orcato their own
lcid<rrt; theiio leaders havo always been
mace and created by whito ?OO?, ?nd
forced upon tho raoo regardless of
qualilioatious. Mr. Washington is a
gentleman and a eoholar and a great
educator along industrial lino:1; but it
in propontoromi and ridioulous io try to
impreufiB upon tho world that, ho in tho?
only and groatofit colored man and
gontlcman in tho United States. There
aro moro than a thoutaod oolorod
mon,-yet.', thousands- hotter oduaoted;
just ns gentlemanly, grcator loaders
and moro progroesivo in ovory.way than
Mr. Washington, both in Otiuroh and
Stato, who aro purposoly ignorod and
turnod down by tho whito pooplo of
tho North every day.
President ltiosevolt is a groat Presi
dent, with an houoot hoart, with tho
purpeso and oourago to do right. Ho
had no sinistor mutivo in inviting Mr
Washington to dino with him. B/ought
into tho Providential chair undor pe
oular and extraordinary oonditions, ho
was somewhat handicapped and would
naturally tock lor light in every oon
toivablo oircotion. Tie South pi o
sontodtho greatost puzzlo to his icquir
ing mind, and ho tries to paoify and
oonoiliaio dili'crcnoos down tbcro to
tho fa'.ififr.otion of all parties oonoorn
od. To do this ho must not bo imposed
upon by his whito or oolorod friouds.
Tho greatest diplrmaoy is ncocssary to
adjust a vtxed quostion not yot sot
lied, but whioh was beginning to bo ad
justed by hiHOftutioufi measures. Oon
aoivativo whito mon wcro hoing appoint
ed to obi ci and sootioual barriera woro
being toru down. Two oolorod loaders
wero called to tho Whito Iloueo, ono
a Bishop in tho porson of Bibhop Abra
ham Girant, ono of ibo most oautious
ana ablest colored leaders of tho raoo
in tho country; tho other an oduoator
in the person of Prof Booker T. Wash
ington, tho estimable and honor od prin
cipal of Tuskegee Bishop Grant was
fcraoiously recoived, talkoa and idvi?cd
with the President, ar.d, liko a oautious
prolate an ho in, Ufo and mado a &ood
impression, au ho always docs.
To H '.mw tho wisdom of thia man wo
quote a bit of unwritten history, por
napp, biciuao of his modesty, not gon
i rally known. Iminediaioty alter
ibo Spanish war wo had camm to visit
tho Whito ilouso with Bishop Grant.
President McKinley, always graci

auU i Monee, a marvel, a plieromonon,
mo only educated oolorcd gentleman in
thc United States, when no have uuou
out lingera mon his luporior in every
way saving only tho linos of industrial
education;; ne bas boon flattered and
i avered, both by tho whito poof, lt of
tho North and thc South, until both ho
and tho Proeidont minunderatood tho
difficult politioal underlying situation.
But Mr. Washington ahould havo been
thc wiser of the two. When Pronident
lloosevolt invitod Prof. Waihlogton to
tho White li juno to canfor with bim
ho did tho pioporthing, for whioh we ap
plaud him. Whoo he invited him to
dine at tho White ilouso he did tho
gentlemanly thing, the lawful thin*.;
but tho most inoxpodiont politioal
thing possible. St. Paul, tho great
apostle, saidt "All things aro lawful,
but all thing* ero not ox ped ion t," Mr.
Washington had given to him tho groat
oat opportunity of bio lifo; had ho boon
a ?tatonman or a politician, had ho been
a Bishop Grant, a John-Mo;oor Lang?
eton, a Pinohbaok, a P. K Bruoo, a
Fred Douglass; a Lynob, a Lyon; a
While, a Ohoatham or hundreds of
other ablo colored lcadors that wo
know: had ho considered tho wolfaroof
tho Prosidont or his raoo, ho would
havo confidentially said to tho Presi
dent: I appreciate this groat honor,
but might it not bo misunderstood and
darno tho dying prejudices and otnbers
of sectional fooling that wo aro trying
to extinguish? Had ho dono tbis it
would havo beon a triumph in diploma
cy and the astuto and quick porooiving
Prosidont would havo takon tho hint.
But tho groatest harm that may ro
8ult from this impolitic and undiplo
matic inoident ia tho abuso of tho
Northern prosB and Northern pooplo
ol tho South. It is not sinooro nor is
it consistent. Tho prejudioo in tho
North is moro malignant and spitoful
than it is in tho South. Tho South has
a oauso and a grievance, the North has
no oauso or griovanoo; and yet itu pre
judioo is greater in proportion than rt is
South. It is a protty htrd thing for a
man to bo forced undor ordinary condi
tions to accept a man as hf? tonal, in a
quartorof a oontury, who had noon his
oiavo for two centurion, and tho North
reiuscs to do it, outsido of a few epi
