SATURDAY, - - May 31, 1S90.
A sn; X \L VICTORY.
The Committee on Irivilcges
and Election has done nobly in
deciding to recommend the seat,
ingot Hon. John Mebceb Lang
8TON of the Fourth Congressional
District of Virgi da and Mr. Mil
LEE of the Seventh Congressional
District of South Caroliua.
Both of the contestants are Col?
ored aud this makes three JSegrc
representatives upon the floor ol
the Halls of Congress.
We have steadily maintained
that to fail to seat Mr. Langstoin
would have beeu especially disas
trous to the Republican Party
That he was elected was appareu
to any oue who chose to examini
into the merits of the case.
He was bitterly opposed by whiti
Republicans who declared that ni
Negro should go to Congress iron
that District. Ile was deniei
representation at the count, onl;
his enemies witnessing the sam
and thousands of bona-fide Repul
lie-ins were denied the right t
cast their ballots. Mr. Langsto:
proved that instead of Mr. E. I
Venable having (Ml niiijorit
he (Venable) had been defeate
by over 2,500 majority.
The question which naturall
presented itself was whether c
not the Republican Party coul
alford to endorse such outrages.
Mr. Langston as _a citizen <
Virginia, a resident of the Distria
clearly had the right to aspire fi
the Congressional nomination.
There must be much rejoicir
over the successful termination i
a case which has lingered uni
almost the closing hour of the fir
session.
We presume that the Brecke
ridge Case had much to do wi
the reaching of the above concl
sious. Hou. John M. Claytc
was murderously butchered wh
endeavoring to secure testimbi
to make good his title to the se
occupied by Mr. C. R. Brecke
ridge. A sub committee cons
ting of members of the Commit!
on Privileges and Elections visit
Arkansas and after hearing tee
mony and seeing ihe condition
affairs. Chairman Lacey declat
that they considered themseh
lucky to get out of the confines
the state alive, and had no des
to tempt Providence again.
lu the meantime, the sub cc
mittee has decided to recomme
that the seat now held by Mr.
R. Breckenridge be deda,
vacant.
It was evidence secured in t
manner that served to bring ab
an immediate termination of
cases referred to. Mr. E. C. Vb
blb will now be ousted from
seat to which he had never bi
elected and Congressman Jo
Mercer Langston will rece
the recognition bestowed upon I
by the voters of the 4th Congi
sional District more than a y
and a half ago.
Well done. Colored men ! li
rally again, organize thorcug
and let the welkin ring with
'?Return Langston to Congress5!
Return Langston to Congress!"
When liberal minded Democi
take charge of the election mac
ery then self respecting Colo
men can afford to vote the D(
eratic ticket and not before.

THE CITY ELECTION.
The city election is ov-vr. That
Mr. Jam* s C. Smith was robbed
of thousands ol votes uo right
thinking man will quent ion.
But the most outrageous of all
t> e schemes was tbe oue to steal
Jackson Ward. This banner Re?
publican Ward with its three thou?
sand majority was to be stolen l?y
methods that are iu keeping with
the past Democratic record.
The stuffing of tbe ballot-box
in the First Precinct, Jackson
Ward, was tbe most criminal act
in the history of the city. By it,
with only about eighty white meu
voting, Capt. Chas. H. Epps secur
ed 212 votes while the preciuct went
Democratic by 24. What have tbe
liberal-minded Democrats to say
relative to this political robbery ?
W here are those who would re?
commend that the Negro vote the
Democratic ticket ?
The running of an independent
Republican ticket afforded an ex?
cuse for the Democrats to spring a
ticket and cou ut out tbe regular
uomiuees ou the Republican ticket.
The scheme miscarried and true
Republicanism was triumphant.
We desire men who have a con?
science?Democratic white men, to
go into Jackson Ward and see how
colored meu, bona-fide voters, are
disfranchised, and then ask them?
selves whether or not they are sur?
prised at Colored men persistently
voting the Republican ticket. The
most unnecessary questions were
asked. Men, in violation of all
law, were denied the right to vote.
Possibly the most glaiing out
rage was that of Mr. William
Glasgow, an old colored gentle?
man, who lives at-Web?
ster Street. Tte name has been
changed to Goddin St., and al?
though he has lived there, and vot?
ed from that j. lace for the last
twenty-five years, and his name
was on the registration books ai?
lie bad stated it, he was denied the
right to vote.
Republicans of the North, you
who are disposed to be cajoled bj
tales of southern Bourbons *. look
upon the statements and drav.
yonr own conclusions. In violi
tion to their sworn obligations, ol
liv'ous of every principle of right
they would steal from us our repn
seutation in tho only liepublicai
Waid in the city. It is the "sho
string ward." One which wa
made so as to embrace all of thi
colored people in this locality, am
with a city government overwhelm
ingly Democratic, they would ates
even tbat (rom ns.
Can there be any doubt of th
wisdom of passing a national ele
tion law f
Can the government afford t
trust the national election mach]
ery iu the hands of such a part:
who openly defies the law t W
believe not.
God grant that tbe time wi
soon come that principle will be :
spected and a sordid greed fi
even non paying offices sent to tl
rear. It is evident that in th
Christian city, many a saint in
church is a devil when an electk
is to be carried. It is consoling
think that a just God beholds tl
actions of men and knows the 8'
cret of every heart.
Quite a warm discussion to
place at the Va. Baptist Sfa
Convention on the 15th inst. T
occasion was that of the reuio\
of Rev. Dr. E K. Love, Rev. W
J. Simmons, D. D.and Rev. Wa
ter H. Brooks from the Hst
contributors to The Baptist Teud
on account ol'the prejudice of t
whites of tho Sonth. The Ooh
ed divines were outspoken in th
denunciation of tbe American Bf
tist Publication Society for wt
they regard as the sacrificing
their lepresentatives in order
ret tin certain financial suppo
Rev. Dr. E. M. Brawlby was
hand to represent tbe interest
the Society and performed tl
duty well.
Rev. A. Binga, Jr., of Mandi
ter, Va., one of the most censer
ti ve of the divines in the sti
caused a sensation by offering
resolutions which we published
our last issue. They were um
mously adopted.
The action of Revs. Simmu
Brooks and Love iu condemn
the barbarous ousting of minist
of the gospel from first class coa
es after tickets had been sold
the same will be endorsed by
right thinking people.
Their protest against the act
of the American Baptist Pub
tion Society fn heeding the h
of their prejudiced element is
keeping with the self-respect i
manliness which goes to show 1
we are just like other people
The unfortunate controversy
to be regretted. However, we re
joice to fee the cleigy showing
signs of aggressive manhood.
When they set the example, tbe
people will follow.
THE LY XC II HI NM SEMINARY.
The V rginia Seminary at Lynch
burg is urgently ueeded. There
eau be no question about that.
The hos iii ty manifested by ocr
taiu members of the Democratic
Party demonstrates tbat immedi?
ate action is ueeded. We wish
that every oue could see the unfin?
ished condition of the edifice.
Five thousand dollars is needed at
ouce.
The walls have been built one
story. Shall we not place out
shoulders to the wheel and com
plete tbe work f Let us organize
and rally. Send in contributions
to Mr. R. T. Hill, of this city aud
it will be duly acknowledged.

Lynchburg.
Messrs. Preston Bel
Bailey, ?--Felthaus, 1
Stewart, Clarence Peyton, and
Henry Moore were present at the
count in the First Precinct, Jackson
Ward. Who stuffed the ballot-box?
Colored men be of good cheer.
Bourbon fraud aud trickery cannot
wiu forever. ''?God reigns, and the
government at Washington still
lives."
The action of certain Democratic
leaders in Jackson Ward should
be sufficient to damn them in tLe
eyes of all right thinking people
for years to come.
In the First Precinct Jackson
Ward, the regular Republican
ticket was not allowed any repre?
sentation at the count. Men who
were to represent thal side of tbe
contest were ordered out by burly
policemen. Aud this is the way
politics is conducted in Richmond
city. It is almost as had as the
Mississippi plan.
