they do not seem to get any white

the matter of unlroad and steamboat

'Tis an old but trite adage "Consistency
thou at a jewel'" We confess that two
hundred and fiftv years of slavery has
not been the best way to refine a people,
and some of the colored people are very
uncouth, boisterous and immoral but
all are not so there are some of us, who
being first water diamonds, have been
polished up by lubbing against the first
water diamonds of the white race, and
we are the ones who feel these outrages
moat. We are perfectly willing to be
accoided pnvileges according to our
means and tastes just as the whites are.
The whites would deem it very terrible
if all their good, refined, wealthy people
were only accoided the meanest possible
accommodations because there are some
and very many toolow, degraded,
trifling, immoral people among theui.
We feel just the same way. We are
willing to stand the same tests the whites
do to enjoy the same privileges, but we
wish our judges to be completely color
The colored people of Oak Ridge, La.,
on last Monday, demonstrated the fact
that they are tired of the manner in
which colored men are treated in the
South who are accused of committing
rape upon white girls. There seems to
be nothing held in such holy abhorrence,
by the Southerners, as that of illict in
tercourse between colored males and
white females, while for years, colored
females have been considered by them
as the lawful prey of white men and,
in time of slavery many a white father
and mother has sold his or her mulatto
daughter with the full knowledge that
ehe was to be the concubine of her pur-
chaser. Nine-tenths of these so called
rape cases if properlv investigated
would fall to the ground, as it would be
proved that the females are usually
willing victims. Be that as it may, how-
ever, it is no more unlawful in the eyes
of God in any sense, for a colored man
and a white woman to hold illicit sexual
intercourse that for a white man and a
colored woman or for both parties to
have the same sort of cuticle. The law
of man should apply to all cases alike.
We are all sons and daughters of Adam.
We should all be punished for our
wrong doings, but don't make fish of
one and fowl of another. Punish all
alike. *?$
There is a rumor that a clique of real
estate dealers in this city are to have an
oidinance passed imposing an annual
tax of $1,000 upon every firm or indi-
vidual in the real estate business. This
will close out a lot of small concerns and
the big ones will catch all the fish.
There is no doubt that there are more
men in the business than there is any
need for, but believing in the survival
of the fittest we do not favor the hogish
idea. Let all go ahead, just as at present,
and the rustlers will keep on top while
the others will sink.
Monday is the glorious Fourth of July,
but there does not seem to be very much
entusiasm among the Colored People of
the Great Northwest. Perhaps ?hey
feel that they are not treated as citizens
of the United States, and, therefore, do
not care to celebrate the anniversary of
American freedom until they receive
the full quoto of rtghts to which they
are entitled under the Declaration of
It has tianspired that the story which
has gone the rounds of the press to the
effect that Prof W.H Council with fifteen
of his pupils having first class tickets
entered a first class car in Alabama and
that the whites in the car vacated and
went in to the smoking car, is all a lie,
gotten up to predudice the case of Mr.
Council before the Interstate Commiss
The governor of the Empiie State has
signed the bill which prohibits railway
companies in New York from heating
their cars with the old fashioned stove.
It will be in ordei now, for other States
to follow suit, and thus save many lives
in the usual collisions and accidents that
occur,from the recklessmannei in which
railroad trains are run.
After the legislature mixed the public
schools of Ohio, the short sighted color

white men of the School Board who op

the colored schools of that city continu

ought to be relegated to the shades of
oblivion in the future.

If the Afi o-Americans would cease to
be so religious and use a little more
common sense and honesty towards
each other in their daily intercourse,
their white brothers would have a little
more respect for them. Practice the
same respect towards each other as you
do towards the white brother and we
will soon rise higher in the estimation
of our white friends. Will you try it
and see how it works ?Denver Argus.

Greenville, Tenn.
To-day Tennessee is witnessing one of
the gravest agitations ever within her
border. Not even war days were people
so determined and resolute as to-day.
This is a moral war, a fight between
right and wrong a fight between the
home and snloon. During the early
part of the war men d'ffering would
easily settle it with musket or pistol,
not so now, solid arguments are the only
weapons used. The colored voting
population is about 60,000. On the pro
hibition question the whites are nearly
evenly divided, hence it is easily seen
which ever side the colored people vote,
that will be the winning side. The
saloon keepers and their friends are
doing every thing in their power to con
trol the colored vote, while the prohi
bitionist are working equally as hard to
secure our vote. Most of the colored
newspapers favors prohibition. The
Free Lanee especially comes out "teeth
and toe nail" for prooibition. The bulk
of the colored people are in Middle and
West Tennessee, still East Tennessee
has her full share. Being a prohibition
ist ourselves, certainly we are working
for its success. We believe the worst
enemy of the colored people is the
saloons, every attempt to deprive us of
our legal rights, even during the time
