And whereas we believe discrimina tion because of color Incompatible wit) Christianity and at war with the princl - of that klntrdora which is tl te equality o sta Aram hara, aa shown by the Intense? aory prayer of Us King, who prayec that hts subjects might be one. Ant whereas, we feel that tbe Amerlcai Baptist Publication Society, ba offered ((inadvertently we trust) ai imlignity to the Colored Baptist of th United States by dropping the name of Dr. E. K. Lotre, Rev. W. J. Simmon D. D. and Rev. W. H. Brooks from th 1st of contributors to the Bapti Teacher, without any discovery c incompetency or proof of general unlit ness, which fact leads us to condini that it was actuated by a wrong gplrii Tlierefo.e be it Reso'ved; That while we feel a pr< found i-uiisc of appreciation for all til kind nest* shown by the society to us i the past, yet we can but condemn tli act of sacrificing ;the .Co'ored \brethre for the sake of gain or hope ot gratify lng blind prejudice. 2nd.

Sotb stav ..ONI) neral Washington, D C., May 19: IK90. Repreaeataiive Mc. Kmlev has had a lard time to keep the Republican- of he House up to the scratch Os. the va? rious amendments winch have been pro posed and voted on, to the tariff bill, and on two occasions verbal amend relents which originated from the major? ity of the Ways ate-*1 Means ccumittee, hare narrowly escaped defeat wits ? the vote wag ti. ken. A* a rule, though, the Republican members who have any course for complaint against tl)** bill, have contented themselves withofl'rlng amendments to correct thc cau-e of com plaint from their consli'uouts. but ev* ery amendment so fur offered, except those which came from the committee, have been defeated. Only two days more of debate remain, and there are all sorts of rumors as to what dissatisfi? ed Republicans may do,lt is perfectly safe to say that when the vote is taken upon ihe bill as a whole, next Wednes? day, tbe Republicans will supper: the bili solidly. Tue Senate ls still discussing th ? Jones silver bill and there is little prob* bllity that a vote will be reached upon it this week. It ls believed that it will finally be passed, although on the Re? publican side Senators Teller and Stew art are openly opposed to it, and Sena? tor Sherman bas said that he will vote for it very unwillingly, If at all. The delegation from thc Fanners* ails; liance which has keen working upon' Congress in favor al the bill cu ..bush? ing Government store bouses which ?hall receive on deposit agricultural pro ducts, issuing certain certificates theie for which shall bo acceptab'e as curren cy. is not meeting with success oaaklug converts among the law makers, on tba contrary their idea is being vigorously opposed by Congressmen. There ia lit? tle chance of such a bill getting through this Congress, Tnc e'eetlon if Representative Car? lisle to be Senator gives general salislac tion here among the members of both part es. There is probably no Demo? crat In thc coun*ry whom the Republi? can Senators would sooner have as a colleague. At oue o'clock Saturday Secretary Blaine's daughter was married to Wal? ter Damrosch of New York. The af? fair was as quiet as JU could be made considering me prominence of the con tracting parties. Tue young couple have gone to Europe where they wlh re main until the fall Their future home will be In New York city. The committee appointed by tbe Re publican House caucus to examine and report which was the best to adopt, the Lodge or the Rowell Federal election bib, has reported In favor of tho Lodge bill divested of the Australian bailot tea ture. Opinion billi differs widely as tc what Congress will do In this matter, A large majority of the Republicans bc lleve that a Federal election law ehouli] be enacted at thc present sessiou of Cor grcss, but there is a powerful minority of influential Republicans in and out ol Congress, headed by no less a person? age than Jaine? G. Blaine, who beii in it the enactment of such a law at thii tune would be very poor politics soi ihat the Republican party would los* much more elsewhere than it could pos? sibly gain thereby In the South. Tue IL ame and Senate have agreed u disagree on the pension qu Thi matter is now being cousi >? fe re nee ?_ntr.mUt< ?e ie noi the reports emanating from Democr sources in this city that the prosen1 deadlock had been In eutionally gotter up by the Republicans in order to pre? vent any pension legisla ioi at this ses? sion. The present difference of opinlor. between the House and Renate is an hot est one, but the Republicans in bo*) Houses are fully determined upon tbi passage of a pension bill, and it only rt mains to adjust tbe details as to how fa it t-liall go and what lt shall cover, am this will be done soon. Secretary Frector will make an of cial inspection of the military posts a Willet's Point, Sandy Hook, and Fort Hamilton and Wordsworth, New Yeti this week. Senator Plumb will a eeoc pa ny him if be can arrange his senatoi al dudes so as to spare the time. Ex civil service and Indian commi siouer Oberly has become the bueines manager of a daily democratic pap* here, lie will find a decided differenc between hustling for the printers an paper makers, and drawing *)>,000 year from Uncle Sam while the otbi fellows hustled. Ex Senator Piumb of Michigan, Un States Minister to Spaiu, has placed b resignation iu the hands of beere tar Blaine. He proposes to return to I trott to live and says that he will not i der any circumstances be a candida for Governor. Many Democrats will never forg Mr. Mills for having stated on the flo of the House that be did not believe t mnjerity of the Ways aud Means C< mittee bad been improperly approach or Influenced while preparing the tai bill. Suih a statement destroys the p tical ammunition of the two for a ce style of tbe Democrats and they hs Mills for having made it. THE RIGHT OF CHRISTIANS DRINK ALCHOHOLIC LIQUORS Mr. Editor . In your issue of the 3rd ult. appea an article under the caption of ?*" Right of Christians to Drink Alcohi Liquors.'* lt seems that the wri who sails under the norn de plume . slamer te seeking an opinion, also a li for the same. After citing the opin of two or three others he presents 1 gets illogical and makes it itnpossibl detect .with a microscope, I will \ ture to say that the Improper use of beverage has become a glaring sham the morals and a ruinous obstacle to general welfare of our people. F tbe writer's attempts it seems ag tho be favors the total abolition of the ] duction of alcoholic spirits; if thu will somewhat differ and present vt I think is the proper remedy. The g est trouble concerning this be ve raj the abuses of privilege in its us Now, let us qualify. Howl* As mo ate, or in other words, use it for wh was intended. If we do this we have aa much temperance as is net for reformation In this direction. I der to get to it properly I will sug further.
