Reads a Letter From Him in
the House ol Representatives.

was completely exploded in tho
house yesterday when lion. 10. Y.
\Vobl>, of North Ca>otina, read a
letter on the subject from Mr.
Cleveland himself. When the
charge was first made few days
ago, there were general denials <?t"
its truth, but the t<mei(iu denial
from tlio ex-president himself
came yost'rday. Taylor, thi* negro
in question, resided for several
years in Atlanta, whore lio published
:i newspaper.
This w:^, ;is 1 recollect it, .'li ter
he hud served as minister t<> Liberia,
and before ho was made reeorder
of deeds of the District of
Columbia. 11 ? will be remembered
us :in exceedingly intelligent, wellinformed
and well-educated negro,
who never had aspirations toward
social equality. Certainly not
while living in the South. Mr.
Cleveland's letter, which Mr. Wubb
read as soon as he could get the
lloor this morning speaks for itBel

the former president, sending him
an extract from the Record and
asking if statements made by
Mr. Scott were true.
Mu. Ci.kvkland'h Lkttkk.
"This morning,'' he said, '! received
the following reply," which
lie read amid applause on the Democratic
side:
"Princeton. N. .1 Mnrnli
1H0-1.?K. Y. Wobb, House of
Repn'gentativos. Dear S;r: His
u matter of email concern to 1110
that a Mr. Scott haw seen fit to nno
my name in 11 display of his evil
propensities on the floor of the
house of representatives.
"In answor to your inquiry, however,
1 have to aay of his statement
(hat the colored man, C. 11.
J. Taylor, took lunch with me at
tlio Whito IIouso, that it is a deliberate
fabrication out of whole
cloth,
''Ah far as Mr. Taylor is concorned,
I underst tin 1, prior to his
appointment as register of floods nt
Washington. that, ho hud Bf>run<l nu
an assistant in the oflico of the
city attorney at Kansas City. Hih
nomination as register was confirmed
hy the senate, and lie &erved
in (hat place with intelligence and
oIl'M-ioney. He has sinco died.
Some people restrain themselves
from abusing the dead .
'My inquiries concerning Mr.
Taylor hi lore his appointment, my
ol>MTv.ll i' II of him dnriiw* Iiim inouinbwiioy,
and the little I have
known of him since, satisfy mo
that his character i? very unjustly
attacked in the diatribe of Mr.
Sc??t t.
' One charge is made against Mr.
Taylor hy Mr. Scott, which he
dou'?ly clinches with truth when
ho declares: 'He was a black negro.'
I am le<l, however, to doubt
his himiliurily will, his subject
when lie adds: 'As black an you
ever saw.1 Yours very truly,
"Grover Cleveland,"
Mr. Webb said he wanted this
denial t<> travel, that that statencut
of Mr.jScott might be overthkon.
"Mr. Cleveland was a friend of
the negro, but not a fool friend,"1
8ai<l Mr. Webb. "Ho never by
j
V
word or act encouraged tho dream
of social equality in tho breast of
the black man."
This was greeted with applause
by (ho Democrats. "Again," ho
eon I iimed, "he was tho friend of
the Colored man, but also was the
Southorn white man, and pympnthi/.ed
with uh in our race pruhloins

statement of Mr. Cleveland iik true j
and offered his apology to the form- I

said Mr. Scott, ho thai red to bay
that he never before heard the report

From Six Mile.
Hero I come agaiu. I guess that
the inauy renders of The Sontinol
Journal think that Six Mile is coming
to tho front if writing to iho paper
helps any.
Beginner said last week that Six
Mile was going to have a high school
| 1 am afraid it will he like tho Irish
I ".'an's tresspasser. Pat and Mike
| had just come over from tho old
icountry and planted them a corn
I patch, and something began to dost
roy it, so they went down to liml
the offender, nnd Mike, spying a ter
j nipin and not. knowing what, it was,
exclaimed: "Here, l'at is I lie d u n
thing that has huvu citing our coin;
lay down the fence and I'll drive him
out," and he gave "'ln 11 kick and lie1
said: "Yon can lay up the fence, Pat,
the dim thing has swallowed his
head." I am afraid that tlm high j
school will sw!i!!<> v its head before it |
makes a start. I certainly like Beginners
views on the sulij-ct. Come
i again, we like to hear from you.

Women as well as men are made miserable
