We are in receipt of a private letter
from a friend in Cincinnati, Ohio, stat
ing that he has charge of a column in
the Enquirer, one of the leading Dem
ocratic dailies of this country, devoted
to the personal, social and general news
among the Colored people of the "Queen
City," for which he is well paid. We do
not particularly favor the "Colored
Column" scheme, with its rather odious
distinction, as it is very distasteful to a
large number of us, but we are pleased
to see such papers as the Enquirer, of
Cincinnati, and the Courier Journal, of
Louisville, Ky.,which also runs such a
columngiving evidence of the fact that
they are compelled to pay some attention
to the Colored people, and to do some
thing to show that they lecognize the
fact that they are an important factor
in the composition of the cosino
politian cities in which those journals
are published. We would, however,
prefer to see these great journals place
some capable Colored men on their
regular reportorial staffs with the priv
lege of reporting and publishing the
same matter they do now in the proper
columns, without any distinctions. We
do not favor "Colored papers any more
than we do "Colored columns," though
we are, and have been engaged in their
publication continuously, since 1879,
yet, we think they have been produc
tive of much good and have done much
to elevate, and educate, and harmonize
the people. When the time comes
and we hope it will not be far distant
that there will be no need for Colored
papers but that all papers will be pa
pers of the people, we will be highly
The action of the Enquirer is a step
in advance of its former policy it always
furnished more news concerning the
bad things that Colored people did in
all parts of the country, than any other
paper we know of, and we heartily ap
prove of its efforts to furnish news of
the more pleasant things they engage
in, The young man who has been en
gaged by the Enquirer, possesses abili
ties superior to nine out of ten of the
ordinary newspaper reporters and we
would be pleased to see the great jour
nal take another advanced step and
appoint him as an all around man on
For several weeks the press of both
races have scattered the tidings of the
project concocted by certain Kansas
gentlemen, looking to the shipping of
shiploads of Negroes to South America.
We have refrained from giving any par
ticular notice to a scheme so wild, fool
hardy and impracticable, and would not
speak now, save for the fact that some
of our cotemporanes seem to be terri
bly excited, fearing grave consequences
from this wild scheme. It may be
because the frigid air of the Northwest
has rendered us unduely phlegmatic
but we do not feel one tremor of excite
ment, for two reasons: Firsta dozen
such organization could not coax, buy,
force or dupe 50 respectable Negroes to
enter into so foolish a plan. Second
There are enough intelligent men of
our race scattered throughout the South,
to stamp the life out of any such villin

begins it will flow with the fertile dis
tricts of our own free and eden-like

F, E. Searls, of St. Cloud, was elected
temporary chairman and T. Bixby, of
Red Wing, secretary. Committees on
Credentials, Permanent Organization,
Bules, Resolutions and Plan of State
League consisting of one delegate from
each judicial destrict were appointed.
During the absence of the committees
the following resolutions written by the
lite Gen. John A. Logan were read by
B. G. Evans and unanimously adopted:
The great purpose of the people in
giving the Colored race their freedom
and amending the constitution of the
United States, was to raise them from
the condition of servitude in which they
had previously stood, to perfect poli
tical equality with all other citizens
within the jurisdiction of the states and
nation. And inasmuch as they have
been restricted in their civil and poli
tical rights in many of the Southern
states by people resorting to various
means in violation of law for such
purposes therefore, be it,
Resolved, That it is the duty of all
good citizens, irrespective of party, to
use their influence and votes in" the
direction that will protect these persons
in all the rights to which they are en
titled under the laws and constitution
of the United States, and any political
party or combination that interferes" in
any way with the right of any citizens,
white or Colored, fairly depositing
his ballot for his choice at any election
shows himself unworthy of tne protec
tion of this government, and any party
recognizing or sympathizing with any
such course or conduct should be con
demned by the honest and faithful citi
zens of the United States.
Resolved, That the Democratic party
ia chargeable with the habitual sacrifice
of patroitism and justice in the sup
pression of the ballot in many of the
Southern states. Instead of promoting
the purity of the ballot they have
restored to all kinds of oppression and
raud against the rights of the Colored
citizens in order to gam political advan
tages and restore themselves to power.
After the reading of these and sundry,
other resolutions the convention ad
juorned until Friday morning.
Upon the reassembling of the conven
tion the different committees made
their reports, the temporary organiza
tion was made permanent, with the
addition of W. E. Lee, for treasurer

Connections Made in Union
Notwitstanding the wonderful ad
vances made in the past few years in
the way of rendering travel by rail
pleasant and enjoyable to the last
degree, by sleeping cars, parlor cars,
dining cars, bufiet cars, boudoir cars,
and "all that sort of thing," there is, in
certain quarters, one annoyance left,
which is about the most unbearable of
all. That is to enter a city at evening of
a rainy fall day, at midnight in a winter
storm, or at 3 A. M. when the mercury is
below zero, and find yourself oblige to
leave a warm car and ride two miles in
an omnibus which ought to be put on
some "refrigerator car line," to make
your next railroad connection. Trave
lers who don't enjoy that sort of thing
will make no mistake when they buy
their tickets over "The Burlington/'

Doings of a week in the Great
Served up for the
Brother Jones didn't know his meet
ing was loaded, but it was and now he
is not feeling well.
A few weeks ago Dr. D. H. Williams,
one of the leading Colored physicians
of Chicago, in the course of along in
terview with a reporter, used tne
words: "The great mistake which
white people make is to judge the
whole Colored race by the sleeping-car
porter (who is not half so black as he
has been painted,) by the newsboys
and roustabouts." In the same inter
view he said "The Colored people are
particularly fond of secret societiee and
When Mr. Jones read those remarks
of Dr. Williams, his ire was kindled.
He saw in them an insult to the sleep
ing-car porter and secret societies, and
he determined to resent it. He had a
lot of little dodgers headed with big
type scattered broadcast over the city,
inviting all members ef secret societies,
sleeping-car porters, and hotel waiters
to meet Sunday, at 2.30, No. 180 Clark
street and show Dr. Williams where he
At 3 o'oclock the meeting was called
to order by Mr. Jones, who elected
himself chairman, and stepping to the
fore with dignified mien, he read a
portion of the interview with Dr.
Williams and then began to denounce
him. "Gentlemen" he said, "an insult
and slur on the Colored race has been
offered by Dr. Williams. Not only
does it appertain to the railroad porter
and hotel waiter but to all of us as well.
I say now that what Brother Williams
said was false, malicious and a lie. It
"Brother Jones," said Mr. Hewitt,
"I don't see that Dr. Williams said any
thing so bad. We do love societies and
bright regalias. He dosen't say any
thing against the Colored man, and
I think you have made a great mistake
in calling this indignation meeting. It
is an outrage to get up and vilify a man
in this way. Why don't you read all
of the interview without picking out
one sentence it maybe he said some
thing that modifies it."
"I read all that relates to the point
at issue," replied Mr. Jones.
"No, that won't do, giye us a chance
to judge for ourselves don't misre
present any man."
"I don't," indignantly answered Mi.
Jones. "If you think I didn't read it
right, read it yourself."
'I'll do it," said Morris Bowman,
the attorney, and taking the paper he
read all the interview with Dr.
Williams. When the whole was read
it was found that instead of reviling
secret societies or speaking disparag
ingly of his own race, Dr. Williams had
complimented, upheld, and spoken
most sensibly of them.
Mr. Emory Snowdon, representing
the hotel waiters, jumped on Attorney
Jones and gave it to kim in such a lively
manner that our legal friend began to
look down in the mouth.
Then Lawyer Bowman arose and
said: "Dr. Williams is a gentleman,
and a scholar, and he knows what he
is talking about. We must respect our
leaders, I am sorry this meeting has
been called. I endorse every word Dr.
Williams has said. This is a John Jones
meeting, conceived and carried out by
you, Mr. Chairman, and you have tried
to do all the talking. We must call a
halt. Don't be led away by a cypher,
gentlemen. Brother Jones means well
and is on the allert to discever attacks
on the race, but he has made a mistake.
I am here for justice. Black men do
like brass buttons. I say Dr. Williams
was right and all in favor of approving
his remarks say aye."
"No you don't," interrupted Jones.
"I'm running this meeting, and if there
is any motions to be put I'll put 'em."
"Well, why don't you put 'em?" cried
all present in a breath.
Mr. Jones insisted that Dr. Williams
'had insulted the whole Colored race
and demanded the passage of a long
list of resolutions condemning Dr.
Williams in severest terms.
"I move that the resolutions belaid
on the table," cried one man as soon as
Mr. Jones had finished reading them.
"I second the motion," yelled a
number and che crestfallen chairman
put the motion which was earriedun
nanimously. When Mr. Jones found
that he had been defeated he tried to
hedge, saying: "I have spoken des
paragingly of Dr. Williams. Personally,
he is my friend, but the position he has
taken is an insult. Now I didn't say
anything against his character, did I?
He is a gentleman and
"I move that we unanimously en
dorse every word Dr. Williams said,"
cried Mr. Hewitt. The motion received
a dozen seconds, but Jones hesitated.
"Put the motion," cried several
"Oh don't be afraid, I'll put it sure,"
and he did put it and it was carried
without a desenting vote. It was a
hard dose for Brother Jones but he
swallowed it and the meeting ad
