Ah:mur WV. Gnuay, (the brilliant,
Ilough not I wvas reliable, Correspond
Cnl ot' the Athlalt Constitution,
propliesiled rocelt ly that there woull
- o011 be a momntous aurprise in Geor
gia polit ical circles. It is said that (ho
hchemieo was for .Joe llrowii to become
Secretary of tho Navy and Ge'n. Gor
(ol to returen to tho Senate. Uut some
how Garfield wonlin't tacekle kindly
to the proposition, and 1111des didn't
break loose in Georgia after all. The
Presidlent-olect possibly feared that the
great Georgian, if Iaido mtionarch of
the sea, might, in a fit of absentm-ind
ediess, imistalke the tiller ropes of the
captain's gig for ploughlines, and be
ginl to "goe haw" that craft s ho did
the stump-tailed bull at Gaddestown.
Old Joe is a wonderful fellow, but. he
will hardly get into the next cabinet.
.lowina Hot and Cold.
Garfield blows hot and cold. Dur
ing the canvass, when every colored
vote in the United States was needed
to elect him, he ma11ide several speeches
il whichl h0 Spoke mlost all'ectionlately
of the colored people, and( satid that thie
party wvould never, nto niever, forget
thiem. A delegation oif Alabama
blacks, believing in the sincerity or
thoso protestations, went last week to
interview him Aind to place the
"clahns" of the Pace in his hands. llis
reply gave them cold comfort. .Ilint
ing, in the beginning, that ho wanted
them to get out of the house they were
fn as soon as they could, he Intiliated
that they weIre a great load on the Re
publican party, and practically said
they cannot expect to have their rights
accorded to theim until they are more
ntelligent a en clightened. Lastly
ohe warned them not to raise the color
line. Ie did not say it in so many
Nwords, but lie hinted strongly that if
race be involved white Republicans
will go squarely hack on them.
Altogether, Garfleld did not give the
blacks quite as much enconragement.
as a Southern Democrat would have
done. Tho latter would have said
about the same thing, only perhaps
not quito so bluntly. We publish the
speech in full, and as it is short we
hope all colored people who can read
will read it, aid those who can't will
have it read to them. It will show,
-what has alwal -a been said, that ihe
lepublic-as care for the black maiI
1only while they want his vote. Afler
that is secured they let him shift for
Elliott and St raker and( Samn Lee and~
several other South C'aroliuia negro
JRndicals went ont to see Garticlud too,
but did not miako mnch out of him.
