THE WHITE MAN’S PARTY
OF THE NORTH!
BLAINE LEFT, BUT THE RE
SULT THE SAME, AS THE
COLORED VOTERS OF
OHIO WERE LEFT
ALSO.

Creveraxp Obio, April 24.—-The
republican state convention re-es
sembled at ten o'clock. The Blaioe
forces had held a caucus previously.
William McKisley, jr, of Stark
county, was made permanent presi
dent and on t-king the chair he made
a speech. 'The platform committee
reported a series of resolutions which
were adopted, but subsequently the
vote was reconsidered and the plat
form recommitted. J. R. Robinson
of Hardin county, was nominated for
secretary of state on the third ballot;
W. W. Johnston was nominated for
judge of the supreme court; and C.
A. Flickinger, of Defiance, was nom
inated for member of the board of
public works, on the first ballot.
At this stage of the proceedings a
delicate question arose. The leaders
had promised to give the colored men
a representation on the delegaticn-at
large to the Chicago convention,
while it was evident from the be
ginning that there was no intention
to fuifill their promise. Various ex
pedients were r.sorted toin order to
evade the issue. First Judge J. B.
Foraker, who was defeated for gov
ernor by Mr. Hoadly, was elected by
acclamation. It was proposed to pay
the same compiiment to W. H. West,
who was defeated for the same office
by Bishop some years ago, but the
convention refused. Then President
McKivley was clected in that way.
This di=posed of two of the seats.
For the other two Judge West, Gen
eral Jobn Deatty, Walter S. Thomas
(colored) Jacob A. Ambler, Samuei
Craighead, John P. Greere (colored),
Rev. James Poindexter (colored) and
S. 8. Warner were named. As the
ballot was about to proceed a motien
was made to elect Marcus A. Hanna
by acclamaticn and it prevailed.
This left but one seat to flill and
Judge West was chosen. The col
ored men were named &8 alvernates.
Gen. James M. Comly and General
Beatty were choren electors—at large,
the delegates at-large, are three for
Sherm:n and one, Judge West, for
Blawe. The platform was again re—
ported and adopted. The only
change from the first report was in
the first resolution, the amended re
port demsnding proper internal taxa
tion. The convention haviog thus
completed its labors adjourned with
out day.
Eloping with a Colored Man's
W ife.
CrLevenaxp, April 16.—A very
peculiar elopement is the sensation of
the city. This morning M. R. Pat
terson, a colored plasterer, reported
that a white man named J. H. Bing
ham, a sewing machine agent, bad
eloped with his wife. Patterson is
one of the most prominent colored
men in the city and quite an active
Republican politicizn. His wife is
nearly white and quite pretty. The
sewing-machine agent is 65 yrars of
age. Itis supposed that the guilty
pair bave gone to Detroit, and the
authorities of that city have been
informed. /

REPUBLICANISM IN GEORGIA.
What the Party has done for the
Colored Race in that State.
ATIrANTA, Ga., April 18 —Duaring a
recess in the Republican convention,
yesterday, John E. Bryant made a
speech which has aroused furious race
indignation. He spoke of the state of
‘slavery, and how the colored people
‘were tarned loose after the war with
little headway to do anything. He
said a great change had taken place
in public feeling. “Think,” he said,
“of the changes that have taken place
within the last 25 years,”” and continu
ing he remarked: “Last night I walked
down the street, aud I heard a band
playing. I stopped to listen to that
band, and all around me were colored
men, most of them probably delegates
to this convention. But on one side,
standing in the door of 4 house, I saw
a little group of young ladies, colored
young ladies, and I say to you here
to day, openly and broadly, that among
these young ladies were some that will
vie with the most beautiful young
ladies of this town of my own race in
accomplishments. They were the
daughters of well-known colored men
in this town who themselves are earn
ing an honest living and are mak.
ing money and rearing these dangh
ters in virtue and respectability. [Ap
plause.] Twenty-five years ago these
beautiful girls would bhave been ta
ken from their fathers and mothers
and sold to tha lowest gambler and
vagabond in Ailanta [immense ap
plause] if he had moaey to buy them.
I ask any Christian man or woman
in Georgia, or throughout the South,
is that not enough to stamp upon cur
cause the signal of a glorious victory
if we had nothing else but that?
[Deafening cheers.] Gol. Bryant con
tinued in areview of the aims of the
Republican Party and its future
prospects.

Jailer.
By Associated P’ress.
MounTt STERLING, Ky., Apnl 25.—
Early yesterday morning forty or fifty
men went to the residence of the jailer
and demanded admittance, the leader
stating that he was the sheriff of Breat

prisoner. The jailer was on the point of
admitting them, when he discovered the
party to be a mob intent on hanging a
prisoner ngmed Wm. Osborne, sentenced
for five years for killing Henry Thomas.
The leader of the mob told the jailer that
unless he surrendered the keys the mob
would batter down the doors. This was
done, but the jailer and his two sons,
who were in the sccond story well
armed defied the mci to ascend the stairs.
After searching the lower part of the

: PurLapecenia, April 23, 1884,
My Dear Sir:
Your paper of the 19th inst., has
been-sent to me, and I find therein a
statement, by your I’hiladelphia cor
respondent, that I told a delegation
of colored citizens, who visited me to
secure my assistance in procuring the
appointment of one of themselves as
turnkey at the central station, that
“You colored people aspire too bigh,”
and that ‘‘Such wes the answer given
by a man who only escaped defeat by
these same colored voters.” In the
first place, let me say, I was elected
by a majority in every division in the
ward, white or colored; and secondly,
that the remarks quoted, is urtrae.
So far from thinking the position too
high for a colored citizen, I openly
and earnestly, as is well known, urged
the appointment of Warren Jackson,
a colored man, by the Maycr, a 8 his
messenger and attendant at his offie,
and introduced him personally to Mr.
Smith, aud ueed all my influence in
that direction. A place much higher
than the one mentioned, in every way.
I have been a strong advocate for
the rights of the colored people since
a boy of sixteen, and was styled then
an ‘“abolitionist,”’—a term 30 years
ago of obloquy. I come of that kind
of stock, for my father was one of the
earliest members, and Secretary of the
o:d anti-slavery socie'y.
I was pleased with the action of
Mayor Kiog in giving them a police
uniform, and encouraged and sus
tained him therein. I thiok I have
earned the right to be considered,
when it meant sometbing, and sioce,
the friend of those people. Of course
there are some worthless men who do
injury to the race, but they are to be
found among all mankind.
I reply to your correspondent be
cause it wounds me to think that
under these circamstances such re
marks should be attributed to me;
which some of your readers, without
denial from me, may believe to be
true. Yours very traly,
Jxo. J. Ripaway, Jr.

Curcaco, April 16, 1884,
Editor of The Tribune:

HOWARD'S LETTER,
SOCIAL AND POLITICAL MAT

Notes From the Seventh and Fifth
Wards.
Pricapeceura, April 23.—Every
thing at the present time is quiet, the
only ripple being comment on the
probable course of the conferezce that
is to mcet at i'ittsburg on Tuesday.
The gener:l opinion prevails that
there 13 nothing in it, and that itisa
political job to hoist a few men into
a prominent place previons to the
National Counvention, but we will see
what a few days will bring forth, and
it chicanery is attempted, it will be
nullified by an immediate counter
action in this portion of the State.
Alex. Davis, writer of “Items on
the Wing” in the Sunday Mercury,
has drawn a great deal of just eriti
cism upon himself by his unwarranted
attack on the members of the “Work
ingmen’s Club;” such ap attack by
one who has just started to write in
the interests of the race, is not the
right course to pursue, and if Mr.
Davis desires to make his colamn a
ruccess, and to have it respected, he
must desist from such ungentlemanly
acts, and work in the interest of such
an organization, which deserves a
great amouzt of credit for the good
work it i 8 doing for the young men
of this city; for tbe Workingmen's
Club is doing a grand work, and one
which should receive credit from
everybody.
Wm. W, Stll, A M., will deliver
the fourth lecture of the Bethel Lit
erary course, before that association,

Choir, Mt. I’isgah Choir, Crucifixion

Guinn, Shadd and llill, awarded the
first prize to Crucifixion P. E. Quar
tette, composed of Misses Tenie Le
Coant, Louisa Morris and Messrs. J.
Henry Cliftyne and J. Deß. Morris.
The first prize was $15.00. The sec
ond prize was awarded to Little John
Wesley choir, and was $lO.OO. Not
withstanding the splendid programme
the attendance was small.
The Young People’s Association
and Lyceum of Central I’resbyterian

Charlie Draper is all at sea in re
gard to his future.
Dick Caldwell says that he voled
for Smith, but the boys of the 12th
division won't have it that way, and
say that he must go.
Jerry Dobson has made application
for a place on the police force. Jerry
has worked hard for the party and
should have it.
Hen Scott snd Bill Allen say they
will sleep together on the road to
Chicago, but Hen. says he must carry
the bottle.
Joseph Hiil has many friends in

for anything that he might come out
for.
Dr. Moseil is coming to the front
as a politician ; there is talk of his
being a candidate for the Legisla

Uncle Jake Purneli showed some
smartness at the last meeting of

burg club, «t Chambersburg. The
game was filled with errors, and
owing to the small grounds and many
inexcusable errors, the home team
were deleated by the pride of the
Camberiand Vuiley. A free picnie
would not have done the people a 3
muczh good as to have their clab cap
ture a game from the inter-State
champions of 'B3. The Chambers
burg club was at home on their hilly
grounds, and if they could remain at
home they might capture most any
ciub which would play them. They
pleyed, however, a fair game, and
vesriy every two. base hit carried the
ball over the fence. None of the
Harrisburgers distinguished them
selves, except Keccius, who made two
three base hits. The following is the
score by innings :

PHILADELPHIA REDS 28. HARRISBURG,
A worse disappointed set of men
vever left the ball field at the conclu
gion of a game than the Philadel
phia’s, who were scooped in by the
Harrsburg’s on Tuesday afternoon
to the tuce of 10 to 7. Nobody
thought the home clob wounld win,
but expected to see them defeated,
because of the game at Chambers
burg the day before. But base ball
is one of those uncertainties on which
a fellow ecan’t always rely. It was
evident from the manner mm which
the home team commenced slugging,
that they went in to win. The game
opened with the reds at the bat, and
were retired without making a run,
when Reccins went to the bat and
was given first on balls; he was fol.
lowed by Caswell, who made a safe
hit; Knodell and Dailey both made
base hits, but Rec. and Caswell both
failed to score; Munyan, however,
came to the rescue with a two base
hit, which brought in two runs. Five
rtuns were made in the first inning,
giving the home team a safe lead,
which they managed tokeep through
out the game. Of the seven runs
made by the visitors, none were
earncd, while larrisburg earned five
of the ten luns made. In the sixth
inning 2 brilliant double play was
made by Duiley catching a difficult
fly snd throwing to third in time to
shut cut Donohue, who was making
for that base. The three runs scored
by the visitors in the ninth inning,
was made on bad errors of the home
team.

ter Wednesday and Thursday. The
game Wednesday was won by the
Lancaster by a sccre of 11 ta 8.
Slach was put in the pitcher's box,
and they knocked him all over the
field. The umpiring was very unfair,
8o much go that in the seventh inving
Captain Dailey cilled his men in
from the field. The game was how
ever played out.
HARRISBURG V 3. IRONSIDES,
The gzwe between the abovo
clubs was aiso played at Lancaster,
and was another case of bad umpir
ing and rain, only four innings and a
hslf being played. DBradley, the new
third basemawu, is an improvement,
and played a fair game, Weidel and
Munyan were the battery, and done
good work. The Ironsides are a
strong team, and played almost a
faultless game, The game was called

account of the rain. The umpire
and the crowd wanted to force the
playing of the five, 8o that the game
