John II. Williamson, Dear Sir: Your circular letter under date of September 30, 1891, relative to the call of a convention of colored men of North Carolina in November next was received. The time lias fully coine' when we, as col ored men and Republicans, should know just exactly where we stand in the party of our choice. That there has been a departure in some tpjarters in North Carolina from the principles of the Rejiublican party as cham pioned by such uien as Sumner, Wilson, Chan dler, Stephens, Giddings, Grant, Phillips, Sherman, Conkling and many others who are among the sainted dead, is ajijmreut to all. What we need is a return to the juincijdes of the jartv which carried it to victorv in the past. If we remain silent at this time and not assert our manhood, then we deserve to be consigned to where some wish m to relegate us. There was a time when the Democratic party did just as it pleased toward the Irish of the North and the white farmers of the South, but that day has passed. The colored man in the South has stood loyally by the Republican party (the Greenboio North State to the contrary notwithstanding), and when he asked for bread he was given a stone, and when he asked for meat he received a serpent. He was looked upon as a follower, but not as a leader. What we want to do is to meet our white Republican friends in council and see if we can't adjust the differences between us, that harmony may exist. I think this a fair proposition and a better plan than a separate convention. lour experience ana acquaintance with tne prominent colored and white Republicans in tne State emiuentlv ht you to call tnem to - gether in council, 'i favor a conference and not a convention. If our Protective League T 1 , . 1 . friends are sincere in their denial of an at - tempt to form a white man' "Republican party in North Carolina, they will meet us tor the good of the party. Let the command go down the line from the mountains to the sea Col ored Republicans to the front ' Should you, however, call a convention to meet in Novem ber next, I shall endeavor to be present and contribute my share in shaping a policy to be pursued by us in North Carolina.

Alexander Lightfoot was bun in Raleigh about I lie year 1815), and belonged to the late Col. James Taylor, of that city. In January, 1845, he was married in the Methodist church to Myra, a daughter of the late Moses Patterson, well known in Italeigh. 1 Ihe marriage being upon the eve ol the re inoval of the late Gen. Patterson, to whom his wife belonged ht; was hired by (Jen. Patter son from his then mistress, Mrs. Eliza Tay lor, and came with him to his farm on the Yadkin river, in Caldwell county, where he ever after resided. On the evening of Sej.tember 8t.h, 1891, a thrill of horror was felt throughout the colu mn aity as the tidings were rajtitlly sjtread that "Uncle Aleck," as he was known to all, had been drawn upon the mill saw while bear ing away a piece of lumber, and dreadfully and fatally wounded. The most serious wound was in the right chest, cutting the ribs and tearing the lung. Willing hands bore him to his house, where his wounds were skillfully dressed. All that constant medical care and lender, loving hands could do, was done for him, and after the first few days it seemed indeed as if there was a chance of his recovery, but blood jioisoning supervened, he began sinking, and on Sunday morning, the 20th, he peacefully passed to his rest. The death of Alexander Lightfoot removes a landmark well known in his neighborhood, and breaks a link binding the present with the past. In his long life he had built up and maintained a character for honesty, truth fulness, benevolence, fidelity to every trust, aud Christian zeal, which few men attain to So great was Gen. Patterson's confidence in him that he was frequently entrusted with large sums of money to and from the bank. During the dark and trying days of the war, and the worse ones succeeding, he was always faithful and true. His influence with his jeojle was great and exerted in behalf of molality and order. He was a carpenter by trade, and there remains many a monument to his skill and fidelity It is safe to say that he did, for the poor of the neighborhood, especially of his own race, hundreds of dollars worth of work for which he received no remuneration. For more than forty years he was a member of the church, converted under the preaching of t e Rev. Mr. Edwards in Raleigh. After the war he joined the A. M. E. Church, and was its chief sujijiort in his neighborhood. He was mainly instrumental in building the church very near his house, and from . which he was buried. Rev. Elder Barham, who conducted the burial services, paid a just tribute to his worth and good works to the large congregation present composed Ixjth of white and colored. He leaves a wife, three sons and four daughters, one of the latter beiug Mrs. Dun- ston, of Raleigh, and another the wife of Iter. - 1 j J. B.

THE Git EAT NEGRO CONVENTION. Inasmuch as the call for the conven tion of colored men is so universal, I take; this method of saying to the jx oj.le to assem ble themselves together in convention in the various counties in the State and elect delegates to said convention. 'The time is so short and I am so pushed for time that I can't go altogether aliout this matter as I wish; but the call is almost unanimous by all leading colored men of the State. Elect the I best men, as many as you choose, and come together Wednesdav, November 4, in the citv of Raleigh at 10 o'clock a. m. to transact busi ness of interest to the Negroes of this State. Each county will elect ten times the number of delegates as she has memliers of the House of Representatives, and as many alternates. John H. Williamson, Editor Thk Gazettk. Raleigh, X.
