Mr. J. H. Sm
Ruston Mn
l>e,ir Sir
Your favor of the 2'lrd instant,
asking the following questions has
h?*en received.
"(1). Is it true, as stated in a
colored newspaper, that OB taking
charge of the Recorder's ( Uric you
remo*.ed Mr. Henry Johnson from
the position of Deputy Rii-order and
appointed in his stead a white man?
[2). Have you removed colored
employees and filled their places
with whii j
(.'{). Have you removed colored
clerks from the front office and
placed them in the r<*nr room, out of,
sight of the publi.
I shall answer your questions in |
fbi'order in which you have pro?
pounded them.
(1). Under the Democratic Admin
istration the Deputy Recorder had
been dispensed with for reasons
probably best known to n.y prods
oeesor, Jilr. Trott4>r, who conducted
feint affairs of tbe office without one:
but 1 cannot see how, with the
Recorder absent from the city for n
considerable period of time, business
could proceed in ? proper and ligal
manner with no jierson duly author?
ized to act for him. I appointed as
my Deputy, Cid. Schayer, who had
held the position eighteen years?the
six years under Hon. Fn*derick
Douglass. Mr. Johnson whom 1
found in the office sinned to i
BO particular duty to ]>erforin, but
regarded as Mr. Trotter's confi?
dential man. I ni*eded no such per?
son and. with my Deputy j -ap?
pointed, a lows to know what
1 offered him
{2). No one bas thean remo
the Office remains just as it was
turned over to me by Mr. Trotter,
with tin* exception that I have ap?
pointed five additional clerk'?two
white and three colored. Ti
times when there is not suthYient
work to keen the entire force employ?
ed, and 'furloughs must be taken.
Since I have Irmui in o ttl ce, I have
furloughed four persons?two white
and two colored, and two of those,
one whits and one colored are again
in the Office, so that only two remain
out. While 1 lmve thus far dismiss?
ed no one, it is not my purpose to
continue in office, permanently, the
entire force of my Democratic prede?
cessor, w hit her colored or white.
(.'{). The persons whom I found
employed in the front office are still
there, no change having been made
under my administration.
Very respectfully:
H. K." Hm ck.
The Right of Christian* to Driuk Al*
cohidie Liquors.
Mr. Editor:
lt is not the object of
these articles in the discussion with
"Temperate," to point out the hor?
rors of drink, for they can be seen
only by taking note of some of those
who lill the graves upon tbe hillside ,
tbe wretched condition of some of
those who are now living, the pris?
ons, asylums, and hospitals. The
horrors of drink are stamped upon
the walls of f^inie. No hand can
rise them, no tonie can build up the
t oi teriiig frame, no cosmetics can re?
move his deadly lines from t he fuco.
of the toper. They are there, and
there lamentable. The- ram* dy ls
what we want, and to that.end I
write, lt is admitted by a large
ii u in lier of persons that drinking is a
curse, and should lie dispensed with.
This much is admitted and yet they
refuse to give it up. The drunkards
are wishing to give it up, but they
can not. The so called moderat*
drinkers are unwilling to stop,
though they are on the same ship,
sailing to the same port.
"Temperate" asserts in his article
of last week, that I was apparently
seeking a basis. 1 would like to have
bini know that the basis needs no
seeking. I tis here, ready to build upon
but we cannot build out of such ma?
terial as be furnishes?temperate
drinks. It is Iteyond my comprehen?
sion why a man of his intelligenct
would class it thing reasonable, Wog
teal, and say 'not even with a micro
scope can the meaning lie detected.'
I would like to ask Temperate?As e
beverage, has alcohol a proper use',
He says: "1 will venture to say thai
the improper use of this beverage li ai
become a glaring shame to the mor
ids, andu ruinous obstacle to thi
general welfare of our people."
Since he admits hali of the truth
the other half will come very soon
we trust. 1 said nothing about tin
"abolition of the production." I
would be impossible to abolish tin
production so long as the use of it ai
a beverage continues. Go to th
root and cut off the supply. Not it
Btfll but at the mouth. If this is
done there will be no need of st->p
ping the production. Consumption
brings production and not produc?
tion consumption.
??Cse it for what it was intended."
Will my opponent* please state for
what it was intended? I will await
his answer. "Further, ' he aa
"Train the young necessarily, that
when necessity demands it,
and how to use it." Does he mean
to say "train the young to drink
moderately?" If so, all those who
drink will lie drunkards an they
li manhood or womanhood.
Then we will have a nation of drunk?
ards. And is this what Temperate
is advocating as his "proper us
Be is xvry much like the man who
-st way he knew to

i do as he \
could. i.v doing it would
?soon be gone, and when ali was gone
there would be none to drink. Some
seem to have taken his advice, and
from the consequence*"- thereof, what
do we find, a diminution or an in?
crease? Visit the bar-rooms, gain
hiing dens, brothels, club-rooms, the
social circles, and lastly and saddest.
tlie Church! Each will echo the an?
swer :
"There should be a legislative re?
striction put upon the distribution
or sale of it," says Temperate. Ho
is a very bad citizen who needs the
law to make him do right. No good
to himself, no good to his country
Why, be cannot be trusted.
So it is with e*,ery Christian who
needs a h*gislative law to stop him
from drinking alcoholic liquors, for
if his Christianity does not change
him no legislative law can.
