BISHOP JOHN' M. BROWN.
The Orator and Preaoher Comes Out Squarely for Grover Cleveland. In an Open Letter He Advises HiS Brethren to Do Like. wise. The Time Bas C0ome, the Bishop Kays, for Colored Voters to Act, and Act Deelseively, NAsHYrILLT Tenn., Oct. 18.-There was a stir in political circles here when it became known that Bishop John M. Brown, otf.the African Methodist Episcopal church, a res Ident of Washington. had announced his adherence to the demoeratis party and ad vised all his church to do the same. Bishop Brown has been a strong factor In the republican party's work among t-he negroes heretofore, and he has changed his polities because of the settled conviction that his race has nothing to hope from the republioan party. In conversation he said he did not believe it was to the interest of the negro to ally himself solidly to any one political party. Such a course destroyed his influence. Bo long as s a party was sure of she negro vote that party would have no respeat for the negro or the negro's wishes. The negro must begin to vote for that party from which he has most to expect. Bishop Brown has written an open letter to the members of his church, in which he discusses the question of which candidate the negro should support. He says: "For nearly thirty years we have done all we could to make the republican party suoocessful. We have voted and some of our people have died for its progress. But now the question is being asked by a large ,number of n.. how are we being benefited by our adhe ence to it? The cohaliee is put to our lips but it i made to vanish before one comfort comes to us. "Our men are sometimes nominated for office, their names sent to the senate, but before the senate has time to act the name is withdrawn." He then contrasts this with Mr. Cleve land's course in nominating Mr. Mathews Sor register of deeds in Washington and his insistence on the nomination until he r was shown that the republican senate would not confirm him. Of Mr. Cleveland he says: "N1ot long ago he spoke very kindly of our people and urged kind treatment toward colored citizens. I was told by a gentle man in New York-at one time chief of the Indian Bareau, a man of wealth and social position, a democrat, a southerner by birth and education and an ex-slave-holder-that he had been assured by Mr. Cleveland that if elected president be would prove himself as true to the Interests of colored men as any man who might be elected. "The question comes to us, what is our duty in casting our ballot, if we vote at all? For Mr. Cleveland or for the person who has no pronounced opinion for the colored -man only on election day? It is not sooial equality we ask for, but we do ask that we be treated fairly. "I now appeal to you, dear brethren, to think before you act, and do not act so as engulf us in other and more severe diffi culties. If von cannot consistently vote for Mr. Cleveland, then stay away from the voting wreeinot. The time has come for us to act, and act decidedly. "Jona M. BRown." Bishop Brown says he has talked with many intelligent negroes and finds much feeling in the matter, all taking his view. Malone is Boss. NonorLK, Va., Oct. 18.-A sensation was created in the Second congressional district of Virginia this evenine by the announce ment that Hon. Geo. E.
