Why Oppose Artaur.
There seems to be a well organized
opposition to the nomination of Ches—
ter A. Arthur for president. Just
why Mr. Artbur should be so vigor
ously opposed we cannot see. Of the
four vice presidents who have suc
ceeded to the presidency even the
bitterest enemy of Mr. Arthur will
admit that he bas reflected more
credit upon the nation and the posi
tion thun any of his predecessors.
The circumstaunces under which Mr.
Arthur ascended to the presidency
were of the most trying nature. He
assumed control after the policy of
the dead Garfield had been mapped
out, at a time; when the nation was
stricken with grief acd while elected
upon the same ticket with Garfield it
was well known that the ide:s of po—
litical government possessed by the
president and vice-president was
widely different. To then be called
to the administration of the affairs of
State to take up where a man who
was the choice of the people had left
off, it was an undertakiog in which
one man out of a possible hundred
would have sigrificantly failed. Mr,
Arthur could not'map out a policy of
his own for it was not his adminis
tration, the people did not elect him
president and the greatest fault found
with him now by the inconsiderate
and impulsive is that he has aveided
every step in any direction that had
the tendency of undoing what Gar
field had done. He has simply used
his honest endeavors to keep intact
the policies so far as they were adopted
by the Garfield and Blaine :dministra
tion. We do not believe that
of all the candidates named we have
any better friend than Chester A.
Arthur. The very factjof his being a
gentleman is a guarantee he koows
how to treat a man. If you want to
find the true enemies of the colored
men is it in the lower walks of life
you must search or among that class
who have come up from the lower
walks of life by a chain of fortunate
circumstances. Men who are born
gentlemen are not a hinderance to
the progress of colored men and do
not fear their competition. We have
had nothing to say in this state through
any of our representatives either in
state or national convention as to
whom we would like for president
hence it is a matter of little import
ance to colored voters whom thecon
vention nominates at Chicage, so it
be a man fairly disposed as can be
expected towsrd us, but we prefep
Arthar, if we are allowed to express
a preference, to many of the other
republican candidates now in the field.
We do not deem it fair for the coun
try to call this Arthur’s administra
tion, for he has conducted himself as
few men would have, bad they came
to the position as he did. The en
dorsement of the administration by
the State and County Conventions
gives evidence of the people’s respect
for him. And there is but one way
left to test Mr. Arthur's ability as a
president, and that is to give him a
term of his own administration.
Failure of Republicanism
The so-called Independents in this
country, are im reality a set of sore
heads and want to rule themselves
politicians. They will sacrifice any
party or any msn, to subserve their
own selfish ends. New, there is no
class of people who have more griev
.ances, who suffer more iosults and
indidwmiti i‘t.han the colored men do
at the hz? 18 of the Republican party.
Yet we Li#¥e ¥he first time to record
the fact r“ in this state or any
other % m have weni over
into thol‘hinof any other party and
by 80 doing, defeated their own party.
This species \f feality is not appre
ciated by b€ ®epublicin party. Much
as we prefer b geitle all differences
end grievances against the party,
within the party lines, therc seems to
be a determined effort to drive us
away from our Idol. We are shut
out from conventions and consu'ta
tions. We are placed on the tail end
of State and County committees.
Yet when it comes to votingitis
expected that we will go in for the
old flag and the grand old party
Where is this fire of independence
that is bora within man? Is it to be
expected that vent will never be given
to this long pent up feeling of wrong
and injustice? It is fair to presame
that with the fast growing intelli
gence of the colored man, that he will
not realize how unmanly humilitating
his position is. Now wouldn’t it be
advisable for the Republican party to
pay a little more deference to the
colored men? Every decade has wit:
nessed great chsnges in the history
of this country, and in the midst of
one of these great changes, the Re
publican party will count upon the
colcred man and he will be numbered
among the absent. While we den’t
take any stock in the independents,
we believe we are fast approaching
that state where forbearance will
cease to be a virtue. Leople are
beginoivg to realize that a party to
govern this country, must be true to
its every interest. While we have
no fiaith in Demccracy, wo are fast
loo.sing confidence in Republicanism
An Ignorant Custom
It has been said, and we guess
truthfully that people as a rule pay
more respect to a man when dead
than when zlive, there may be some
reason for this for wben a ian i 8
dead no amount of praise or eulogy
can make him conceited, which some
people if praised too highly avhile
llving grow conceited, eelfish and
ezotistical. Be this as it may, there
is a custom existing among the col
ored people here that does not come
from respect or appreciation for the
dead but it is a sordid ignorant cu
riosity to attend fanerals and look
upon the features of dead people.
The people who follow this custom are
not confined to the lower classes but
amoug that class where reputable
respectability exists, itis quite pre
valent. If yon want to see ali the
various phrases of society mingle to
gether in Harrisburg just announce
a funeral, from the alleys, from the
garrets, from the cellars, from the
respectable quarters, the rabble come.
Pecople who have hardly any knowl
edge of the existenee of the dead per
son will be there to gaze with a blank
and expressionless stare at the mourn
ers, the crowd and the corpse. Yon
will find the o!d lady who is zlways
willing to take a seat in the carriage,
you will find the old lady who will
tell you with pride she has not miss
ed a funeral for years, and like an
old woman who attended a funeral
and got into a carriage with the
mourners, asked whether it was a
man or a woman who was dead. The
too frequent occurence of this thing
reflects badly upon the intelligence of
any people and those who move in
the higher walks of life and are pos
sessed of a higher degree of intelli
gence ought to discountenance such
ignorant customs in place of encour
aging them by their presence. Death
is always a sorrowful thing and why
people delight in witnessing the sor
row of others can only be attributed
to the existence of more enimal than
human natare in them.
The City's Administration
So little credit has been given the
present city administration for the
work done in the past year, the pres
ent council bas been an active and a
workiog body. The review of their
work published in our l2st issue speaks
for itself, whatever they have failed in
doing for the advancement and pro
gress of the city has been hindered
by stringent laws enacted by former
legislation. Councils would never
consent to the building of market
houses in the square were they guar
anteed that the peopte would be will
ing to stand the enormous expense
which would be necessarily entailed
by placing them elsewhere. The af
fairs of the mayor's office have been
administered by Mayor Wilson in a
manner that reflects eredit upon his
execative ability, the police force is
efficient and the brutal treatment
that untortunates were subjected to
under former administrations has
ceased, the mayors office is no longer
controlled by a brace of understrappers
and in place of being o mere figure
head ke is in fact at the head of the
police department. The people will
find io this a lesson that in order to
conduct the people’s business as
ghould be conducted a man must not
be hampered by private interest.
Cax the independents be numbered
among the men who are interested in
repubiican success.
Tuege will be no independents in
Peonsylvania this year. They have
been vanquished by Pattison and the
extra session.
The State Convention.
The Republicans of Penunsylvania
have held their convention and have
selected as their choice for President
and Vice-Vresident, Blaine and Lin
coln, evidently looking upon this as
being a winning card. That the
people of Pennsylvania are for Blaine,
no one will attempt to gainsay, but
can it be as truthfully said that the
mass «f peopie, when swayed by any
popular idea, always exercise that
judgment which governs calm, delib
erate movements? ennsylvauia is
undoubtedly a Repablicin State, and
its people being so determined oun the
nomination of Blaine, would undeoubt
edly be greatly disappointed should
he fail to receive the nomination at
Chicago, should this be the case, it
is to be hoped that no man will sulk
in the camp. The convention, while
characterized by harmony, was not
altogether in harmony with the views
of many of the active Republican
workers, but as good and true Repub
licans they submitted to the will of
the people. The platform w.s broad
and cut-spoken, and uulike the Demo
cratic platform, they had nothing
upon which to hedge. It was clearly
illustrated, however, that the charge
which the Jour~NawL has made hereto
fore, is a true onme, that the ardent
supporters of Blaine have no consid
eration or respect for colored men.
Ouar interest with them is of little im
portance. Our friends in the conven
tion were silenced, and as a result no
recognition has been given the 30,009
colored Republican voters of this
State. Let any intelligent man look
at it, and ask wherc the jewel of con
sistency and the attribute of appre
ciation i, The State Central Com
m'ttee has been selected, and the col
ored brother left out in the cold. We
have frequently been tacked on as
members-at large, but unless Chair
man Cooper suggests that this be
done, we are left entirely. Now,
these Blaine men ovidently expect
this vote of 30,000, or what wiil their
majority in event of Blaine's nomina
tion be in this State.
As the only organ of the large
number of people who suffer these
numercus indignitice, we are com
pelled to mention them. The nomi
paticn of Blaine, or any other candi
date, cannot be of any great import
ance to us. We have been allowed
no voice in their selection, and from
the pecaliar position we hold we must
accept the inevitable, and support
whatever man the party nominates at
Chicago. The labors of the conven
tion have ended, and it only remaius
for those who are interested to whoop
Blaine up all along the line.
Tur Patriot ever ready to smile
upon family quarrels in the Repub
lican ranks takes the JourNan to task
because it told the Republicans in
plain language of the feelings of the
colored people toward the party in
not giviog them the recognition
which they asked for in the recent
city convention, We would just re
mind the editor of the Patriot that
all the complaints we make against
the Republican party all the differ
ences we have to setltle we propcse
to settle them within the ranks of
the party. As Republicins we pro
pose to be recognized in that party as
long as we show allegiance to it aud
if we fail to receive the respect due
us we cannot hope for much conso
lation in the ranks of the Democratice
party. We hope to see the day
when all parties will accord us the
respect due jevery citizen, but it is
hoping against fate to expect of the
Democratic party as it is now and
has has been for fifty years, any sin
cere evidences of friendship for the
colored mar, no, not as long as the
Democratic party of the south con
trels the Democratic party of the
north,
As summer approaches those peo
ple who have been living scantily,
half clothed, half fed and half frozen
daring the past severe winter are
begioning to air themselves on the
street corners and thaw out. As
usual with this class of people they
have no care for to-morrow, and when
the summer season with its picnics,
excarsions and camp meetings comes
they are in the zinth of their glory.
Thousands of dollars are spent every
gummer by people who can iliy afford
it in attending these various things,
bedecked in a linen duster or linen
ulster they think themselveslords of
creation. We suppose our people in
this city in common with colored
people elsewhere are not an exception
to this foolishuess. While we think
let a man be ever so poor he requires
some pleasure to soften the hard lines
of life, yet it should be treated with
judgment. If some of the money
Spent by our people was allowed to
drifs into g chsnvel where it would
come back ¢, {hem with intrest, it
would go far toward relieving much
of the misery which hey frequently
suffer.

Tug Philadelphia /’ress says in an
editorial on the State Convention,
that the delegates elected represent
the struggle for Blaine and for Gar
field four years ago, and that no wirg
of the party is unrepresented, no ele
ment proscribed, and no body of
Republican voters overlooked. Well,
the colored voter is at last given his
true status by this strong exponent of
Republieanism. Heis ot ecnsidered
in the Republican party, and espe
cially the B:aine faction of it, even as
a wing, or the tail end.
Tur people’s train bas started for
Chicago, lcadcd down with enthu
siastic passengers. Let us hope that
upan its return the enthusiasm will
be s earnest as it is now, should
Blaine not bappen to be the Engireer.
Now, that Mr. Morrison has his
tariff’ bill squ:rely before Congress,
and as ouly ninety-five meiubers will
speak upon it, by the time it gets
squarely before the people it will

You can size it up any way y-u
choose, but if Mr. Blaine’s supporters
bave any regard for the 30,000 or
more colored voters in4his State, they
don’t show it by any cutward signs.
Six instracted, bound and pledged

CUORT-MARTIAL DEMANDID.
Serious Charges Preferved Against Advo
cate General Swaim,
WasHINGTON, April 17.—Mr. A. E.
Bateman, of the firm of Bateman & Co.,
bankers, of this city, has to-day filed with
the Secretary of War a letter in which he
says: ‘lt becomes my duty to prefer
charges against Brigadier General D. G.
Swaim, at the head of the Bureau of Mil
itary Justice of the United States army,
for fraud and conduct unbecoming an of
ficer and gentleman. I stand ready to
prove that the said D. G. Swaim has com
mitted a fraud, to all intents and pur
poses, upon the banking Louse of Date
man & Co., of which Tam a member.
Some two years ago thesaid D. G. Swaim
having deposited the sum of §5,000, re
ceived upon his departure for the West a
simple due-bill at his request, to have in
case an accident should befall him. This
amount was checked out subsequent to
that date by said D. G. Swaim, for which
we have a number of vouchers. Afier
having drawn all the money out, and a
settlement being made, he negotiated and
transterred the due-biil for the full amount
with certain parties in this city. I am
further ready to prove that said D. G.
Swaim - assisted to pegotiate army pay
vouchers with our firm which he knew to
be fraudulent and triplicates of outstand
ing accounts. I ask thata court-martial
be ordered for the trial of the said D. G.
Swaim on charges preferred. I desire,
when it is ordered, to amend this by pre
senting other charges under the head of
conduct unbecoming an officer anda gen
tleman. I am, sir, very respectfully,

CAUGHT IN TH& ACT.
Pittsburg Swindlers Neatly Bagged.
By Assoclated Press.
Prrrsßura, April 16.—Two weeksago
George W. and Jobn Clay, wholesale
notion dealers here, confessed judg
ment for §21,000 to their - father,
Ephraim Clay, and the store was closed
by the sherift. A few days later Clarence
H. Swearinger, of New York, arrived in
this city and, finding the store in the
sheriff’s hands, cntered suit against the
Clay Bros. for conspiracy to defraud
creditors. Geo. Clay was arrested in Co
lumbus, 0., yesterday, in company with
J. M. Springer, alias ‘“‘Reddy the Fish,”” a
well-known character. They hadin their
possession fifty-nine cases of goods val
ued at $16,000. They were brought to
Pittsburg on a requisition, and with John
Clay werelodged in jail to await a hearing.
Swearingeralleges that the Clay Brothers
obtained goods valued at $40,000. On
credit, representing that there was no
claims against them, and then confessed
judgment to their father. A large quan
tity of the goods was afterwards shipped
to Columbus in Springer’s name, for the
purpose of defrauding the creditors. The
Clay Brothers were released on bail, but
Springer is still in jail.
IKREPRERSIBLE DYNAMITERS.
Loxpox, April 17.—Patrick Joyce,
Secretary of the Fenian Brotherhood, has
issued a manifesto addressed to all Irish
men, in which he says:
“The Brotherhood has goed cause for
rejoicing at the discomfiture of John Bull.
England has never beforc felt the ven
geance of the expatriated Irish with such
crushing force. The honor of inaugurat.
ing scientific warfare is due to the Droth
erhood. We have convincing proof of
the eflicacy of science when handled by
intelligent, brave and determined men.
We summon all to help us. We advise
our brothers to persevere in the glorious
war, and we will live to witness a frce
and regenerated Ireland. We are re
solved to push the work with redoubled
energy, and we recommend Prof. Mezer
off to all Irishmen as an exponent of the
resources of civilization.”
PRESIDENTIAL SENTIMENT,
What Is Talked of at Washington About
Blaine’s Canvass.
WasniNaToN, April 17.—Representa
tive Ryan, of Kansas, speaking of the at
titude of that State toward the distin
guished geullemer, whose names are
mentioned in conncction with the Presi
dential nomination, says that while the
dele{gtes to Chicago will be friendly to
Mr Blaine they will go there to deliberate
with the representatives of the Republi
cans of other sections of the country in
order to select and nominate the man who
can win. Kansas wants the Republican
party perpetuated, and is not ready to
jump in to the support of any man sim
ply on a sentiment at the risk of party
success; therefore, while Kansas has a
friendly feeling toward Mr. Blaine, if it
cannot be shown with all reasonable cer
tainty that he can carry Massachusetts,
Connecticut, New York, New Jersey and
Indiana, taey will look ahout for a candi
date who can. K.

THE ORIENT.
Reported Dissension Among the Rebels—
Gen. Gordon’s Position,
LoxNpoN, April 16. — Advices from
Khartoum say that the alliances among
the rcbel tribes on the Blue Nile and
White Nile are breaking up. The tribes
who surrounded Saleh Pasha quarrelled
and dispersed. Marauding bands con
tinue to interrupt communications be
tween Kbartoum and Berber, but there
is unity in their operations. It is believed
that General Gordon has received a mes
sage from the English Government urg
ing him to withdraw from Khartoum, but
he ignores the advice.
Cairo, April 16.—Dispatches of April
8 have been received from Gen. Gordon.
He says that Saleh Pasha, who is coming
down the Blue Nile with 500 horsemen
and fifty-seven boat loads of grain, is safe
and sound. Internal dissensions at Kor
dofan have caused the abandonment of
the expedition which the M&hdi was pre
paring against Khartoum. The condition
of affairs at Kassala and Sennaar is such
that no apprehension is felt for their
safety.
Carro, April 16.—Zobehr Pasha has
received a telegram from Gen. Gordon,
dated April 7, giving Zobehr notice of
his appointment as Assistan{ Governor
of the Soudan. When Zobehr arrives at
Berber, General Gordon says he will send
him two steamers, and he orders Zobehr
to take as many men of the Galyiens
tribe as possible to make frequent skirm
ishes. The telegram is unintelligible
here, General Gordon having already ap
pointed Licutenant Colonel Stewart As
sistant Governcr, and the Galyiens being
in revolt.

GRANT AND ARTHUR.
The General Declares His Friendship {or
the President.
Gen. Grant said to a reporter of 7%e
World, who called on him at his residence
yesterday, that the paragraph copied in
The World of Monday from a Washing
ton letter and representing that he left
the capital without returning President
Arthur’s call did him an injustice, as it
was the evident intention of the writer to
convey the impression that he, Gen
eral Grant, and the President are
not on friendly terms. “The fact
is,”” continued the General, ‘‘that
soon after my arrival President Arthur
called on me and stayed fully half an
hour. I told him at the time that I would
not be able to return his call in person,
because of the difficulty experienced
through my lameness in geiting up and
down stairs, and that for the same reason
I would not do any visiting at all during
my stay. It is true that one morning I
walked over, for the exercise, to see Gen.
Beale, at whose house I have often stayed
while in Washington, and on another oc
casion I drove up to see Gen. Sheridan,
but with these exceptions I never entered
a house while I was in Washington. But
soon after his call, in company with Mrs.
Grant, who was visited by President Ar
thur’s sister, and who afterwards lunched
with her, I drove to President Arthur’s
and sent in my card, and I did the same
thing again shortly before my leaving
Washington. I also acted in precisely
the same manner towards Mr. Blaine,
who likewise called on me soon after my
arrival. My personal relations with
President Arthur are and always have
been of the most friendly nature, though
he is by no means my choice for the
Presidency.”
General Grant is looking quite well.
He says that he is so far recovered from
the injury to his leg as not to suffer any
pain at all from it, except through a
wrench orsudden movement. At times
he is able to walk without his crutches,
but at other times is compelled to use
them.— New York World.
