OUR REVIEW.
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.
