Secketahy Folger and the Negro Tim Next Press Convention What will be the Issue of 'S4? A United Stand for a Cab inet Portfolio Xo Whitewash Business Wanted- Are we a Kace of Slaves? We Must Fight to Win The Plain Duty of Congress Commissioner J. R. West. It is all well enough to make pre tentions and promises, but to put things practically into execution is not the principle of lions. Win. E. Chand ler and Judge Folger. Since the ascendancy of Chester A. Arthur to the Presidency, Judge Fol ger, Secretary of the Treasury, and Wm. E. Chandler, Secretary of the Navy, have made a great number of promises and pretentions. They pre tended that we were entitled to a cer tain number of appointments, and promised to make them, but like all other milk and water Republicans thev failed td do so. Secretary Chandler has made no colored appointments since he was made Secretary of the Navy. Perhaps he has forgotten the promises he made when he was Blaine's lieutenant in the last campaign; the promises he made should his candidate, the "Plumed Knight," succeed in being knighted. He was made the premier of the State Department, and what did he do? The "Plumed Knitrht" ueted just like the secretaries of the treasury and navy are acting now "No negro need apply." There is but one depart ment under this government where the colored race are treated like a peo ple, and that is the pension office, under Colonel W. W. Dudley, of Indi ana. If one department can justify the claims of the colored race why can not other departments? the nkxt press convention, which will meet at St. Louis, Mo., next summer, should take a decided stand. We don't want such a farce as an apol ogy for a convention, such as was held at Washington last year. We must make an issue for 1884. A united stand for a Cabinet portfolio; no white wash business wanted, but a united stand for recognition. We don't be hove in leaving the party at present, but if the Kepubhdan party demon strates the fact that we are not wanted, then it will be time enough for us to go to another promised land. WE MUST FIGHT TO WIN is the only and surest road to success. We are tired of promises. It should be the duty of the race to accept whatever may be offered to them from whatever source it may come, without question ing the motives or causes of suclj rec ognition. It is also the plain DUTY OF COXGHESS to restore to the people of the District of Columbia the right of suffrage. The injustice practiced upon the people of the District of Columbia would not bo tolerated in a State. The District of Columbia is controlled by rings, cliques and the armT and navv codfish aristoc racy. This "nobob aristocracy," under the lead of John W. Thompson and W. W. Corcoran, subsidizes the powers that are by some means unknown to human nature, and thus controls our District government. The ISegro in the District of Columbia, under the Federal government, has just as much chance to obtain recognition as a don key would have going through the eye of a needle. We are tired of this busi ness and the sooner Congress gives us that which they enjoy the right of suffrage, the sooner a stop will be put to the sway of this codfish aristocrocy. When wc say recognition under the the District government, we don't mean the appointments of colored men as messengers and laborers ht the station house, the only two colored ap pointments that have been made since Hon. J. It. West was appointed. We want some good and substantial recog nition, not slop-cart drivers and spit toon washers, and after you are through with a good day's work be compelled to go to your secretary's house and stay up half the night. THE COLORED KACE is more abused than anv other race ' upon the globe except the Jews. We sympathize "with tho Jews, because they are despised like the .Negro, but as much as they are despised they are per haps the kindest and more business-like than any other race. Ramsdell, of the Republic, is a bitter enemy of the col ored race. lie hates a Xegro as badly as he hates President Arthur, and yet this same Damsell, or Roomsdell, is the Register of Wills under President Arthur's administration. This is tho same individual who abused President Arthur after Garfield's assassination, and when President Arthur was made president, this same Ramsdell, whose nomination was pending after Gar field's death, -was renominated ty Presi dent Arthur. Things will change in 1884. PERSONALS. Hon. Fred Douglass will return the latter part of this, or the first of next -week. Hon. P. B. S. Pinchback will arrive in town next week. Mr. James D.
