The annual reunion of the 0th Virginia Cavalry, Mosby's men. which wla take place at Fairfax Court Houae Tuesday next, will be the first meeting of the sur vivor* of that command at the court house since the civil war.

To the Kdltor of The Erenlag Star: While there are many grave questions to be considered by the President while writ ing his letter of acceptance, none is perhaps more important among tl*>se that relate to the internal well-being of the country. Its peace and good order, than the present un favorable situation of the colored people. It Is a fact beyond dispute that the colored people are very anxious to know the true feeling of the administration toward the disfranchisement of the masses of colored voters In North Carolina and Louisiana. The 14th and 15th amendments to the Con stitution of the United States conferred upon the colored people the rights of citi zenship and suffrage, or these amendments placed them exactly upon the same footing in respect to suffrage as all other citizens. The states of North Carolina and Louis iana have placed a large number of their legally qualified voters in exactly the situa tion they occupied before the passage of the 14th and 15th amendments. The last named amendments prohibit dis franchisement beeause of race, etc. The two states mentioned have disfranchised on this prohibited basis alone. It Is true that the platform on which President McKinley was renominated makes mention of the violation of these amend ments, but unfortunately commits the re publican party to no particular policy in re spect to these wrongs. The colored people expect the enunciation of a more definite policy. The disfranchis ing provisions of the states of North Caro lina and Louisiana are positively and point edly in violation of the national Constitu tion. . The question Is, Will the colored people have the moral support of the republican party and their assistance in good faith In their struggles for this dearest right which was conferred upon them by the republican party of the past, or will the party ? and Idly by and suffer the work of the founders of the party to be set at naught? It Is a well-known fact that the only rea son the democrats have for disfranchising the colored people is because the colored voters always vote against .them In mat ters state and national in favor of their principal opponents, the republicans. I feel It my duty as a lifelong loyal re publican, and one who has investigated the reasonable complaints of the colored peo ple, to call attention to the importance of the situation, and I hope that the Presi dent will state in his letter of acceptance what the policy of the party will be on this important question. I believe that his declaration with respect to these questions in favor of the enact ment of such laws as would protect and re store them to citizenship would 'cause them and their leaders who may have left the ranks of the republican party to return and manifest the same interest exnressed by the immortal Douglas, when he said, "The republican party Is the ship, all else Is the sea." ^ T. H. QUALL& EAlblti of Sauthera Products at Paris. That the exhibits of southern products which the Southern railway Is now making at the Paris exposition are attractive and typical of the enterprise of that progressive system is tully shown by the awards which were made. These Include two grand prizes, the highest award made at the exposition, and two silver medals. The grand prizes were given to the South ern railway, one for Its exhibit of southern products In the United States Agricultural Department and one for the forestry annex, probably the most unique structure In the Paris exposition. This building is of the log cabin style, made of long, straight, sym metrical yellow pine logs from along the Southern railway. A11 of its material is an advertisement of southern timbers. Inside Is the office of the Southern railway, tho front and sides of which consist of eight Doric columns of hard finely polished south ern woods; the flooring of southern ptne. and as fine as there is in the exposition; the celling and sides of more than seventy varieties of southern woods and the walls hung with many fine photographs of min ing. manufacturing, lumbering and land scape scenes. For this photographic dis play. a silver medal was given, as well a3 another for a similar display In the depart ment of social economy.

Caaaplalat That Haelcaters Disturb People oa Sunday. Mr. R. Grant Barnwell several weeks ago invited the attention of the District Com missioners to the loud yelling of negro hucksters on Sunday. Mr. Barnwell com plained of the matter through the Rev. Wilbur F. Crafts, the latter writing Com missioner Macfariand upon the subject. Replying, Mr. Macfariand assured Mr. Crafts that the municipal authorities are as desirous as himself to have order main tained, and that in the class of cases cited by him every effort has and is being made to secure It. "But," wrote Mr. Macfariand. "the judges of the Police Court, and not the Commissioners, nor the major of police, require that the complaints shall be made by the citizen who is disturbed, not by the policeman. Therefore, unless a citizen is sufficiently public-spirited to make com plaint and follow the case through the Po lice Court, it Is Impossible for the police lepartment to secure conviction. The po lice, however, will cheerfully co-operate arith any citizen who will undertake the matter." Believing that Mr. Macfariand had been misinformed In the matter, Mr. Crafts arrote to Judge Kimball of the Police Court, -equestlng hint to define "exactly the poet ilon which you (Kimball) take, that the >oilce may not have any excuse for ne glecting so manifest a duty. Surely, It Is not the duty of r private citizen to make complaint about a public, general disturb ance going on under the eyes and ears of the police" This communication of Mr. Crafts Judge Kimball referred to the Com missioners. with the following Indorsement made thereon by him: "I know of no such decision as that stated. I have convicted many offenders in fhe class of cases referred to upon the testimony of police officers, and know <>f no reason why. when evidence Is sufficient, they should not be thus convicted." In view of Judge Kimball's statement. It Is understood the Commissioners will in struct the chief of police to bring the mat ter to the attention of his men, with dlrvc tlons to strictly enforce the law hereafter A somewhat similar complaint has been re ceived by the Commissioners from Mr. K. \V. Follett of i:? D street southeast, who complained of the annoyance caused him and other citizens by the Importunities of hucksters, who, he alleges, continually ring: his and other doorbells at all hours of the day. Thl>< complaint was referred to Major Sylvester the chief of police, who In turn referred It to I,leutenant McCathran. with directions to take such action as will put a stop to these annoyances. "After being warned to desist ringing beils." stated Ma jor Sylvester to the lieutenant. "It seems to me that parties who persist are guilty of disorderly conduct." Lieutenant McCathran Informed Major Sylvester that he would Instruct his men to carefully watch Mr. Follett's house In the endeavor to make a case against huck sters who maliciously ring doorbells, but the ordinary ringing of doorbells by huck sters advertising their wares, he explained, is held by the Police Court not to be a violation of law. Mr. Follett was Informed In accordance with the report of the police department, but It Is hoped by the Com missioners that the explanation made br Judge Kimball covers such a case as re ported by Mr Follett. and that hereafter It will be possible to secure the conviction of such offenders.
