GOING INTO COURT.

August 25, 1888.
W. Calvin Chase, Esq.,
Ml, and Pub. Washington Bee.
Dear Sir : Mr. Henry John
son has submitted to me a copy of
your paper of the 20th instant,
and invited my attention to certain
articles therein published, in
which reference is made to him, re
questing an opinion as to your lia
bility to legal proceedings by rea
son of such publication.
He has also instructed me to
take such steps as in my opinion
are necessary and available
under the law, in order to secure
the discontinuance of the further
publication of such uncalled for
The object of this commuuica
tion is, therefore, to suggest the
impropriety of making your paper
the vehicle of such libellous articles
and to inform you that unless they
are discontinued, legal measures
will be availed of to secure that
Attorney and Solicitor.
Wash., DtG., Aug. 26, 1887.
Chas. King, Esq.,
Sir : Your letter of Aug. 25th
informing me that you had a copy
of the Bee of August 20th sub
mitted to you by Henry Johnson
for advice wasieceived.
Judging from your letter I
would conclude that you are as
silly as Johnson, and when you get
ready to go into court I shall have
no hesitaucy in meeting you.
I have just about a bushel of
Henry Johnson's dirty and scurri
lous manuscript that I would like
the court to examine. I am pre
pared to prove what I said in the
Bee last week and show justifiable
cause. I have nothing to retract,
but a plenty to publish; so proceed
with your case.

ON NEGRO JOURNALISM
PLANS FOR THE FUTURE,
(Special to the Washington Bee.)
Catskill, N. Y., Aug., 22, '87.
One of the conspicuous features
of this renowned summer resort,
this season, is the presence of Mr.
J. A. Arneaux the disguished
young tradegian and brilliant jour
nalist of New York city. Mr. Ar
neaux is here by advise of his phy
sician and I do not think he re
grets it as he has gained several
pounds of flesh and is very much
improved in health. The lost by
fire of his bright little journal, the
N. Y. Enterprise, was a severe
blow. When he came here he was
not entirely himself. He was very
retirent and avoided obsevation as
much as possible but his name up
on the register of the Mountain
House quickly brought him out.
He was first recognized by one the
waiters at the hotel who was a pa
tron of the Enterprise in its bokyn
days aud who happened to be
waiting upon him. He is the only
gentleman of color I believe that
ever stopped at this house and of
course his presence attracted at-
tention and the question who is hej
became general among the guests
one of them was told who he was
and several others remembered
having seen him performed in the
drama and read his articles in the
N. Y. Suu and World. When he
became generally known, Mr. Ar
neaux was treated with the great
est social consideration he has been
invited to play Croquet and Lawn
Tennis with the ladies, to row
swim and play base ball with the
gentlemen, all these 'sports Mr. Ar
neaux is proficient which with his
polished manners gives him a pre
cedence. While he was enjoying the moun
tain air on the bote verandes, one
morning I approached him and af
ter a pleasant greeting asked him
about his plans for the future. He
informed me that he intended going
to Paris in the fall to devote his
time to the study ot the drama with
a view of permanently adopting
the stage as a profession. I asked
him if he did not intend to start
the Enterprise again, he answered
after a moments pause that it was
his desire to do so but there was
not sufficient guarantee of appreci
ation demonstrated on the part of
the race to warrant him in making
another sacrifice. "Editing a Ne
gro Journal," he said, is not what
it is cracked up to be ; you spend
from $60 to $90 per week to run
the paper and you collect from a
subscription list of 50Q0 or 6000,
abo'.t $25,00. There you have a
dead loss of from $35 to $65 per
week. People ask me wherever I
go, "When will you start the En
terprise again?" My answer is,
when you make up your minds to
support it, and I am let off. When I
was burned out I had a large sub
scription list, and my paper was
yery popular and was doing well.
1 love my race and would if nec
essary go through fire for it bub to
torture and eventually sacrifice
yourself in the interest of the race,
as some had done, while the race
laughs aud calls you a fool, is in
deed not folly. I expect to edit
the Enterprise or some paper at
some time to come.
Mr. Arneaux will remain at the
Mountains House until the 15th of
Sept.,unless he is called to N, Y. on
business. He intends giving two or
three farewell performances before
he sails for Paris. It is a great
pity that so brilliant a journalist
as Mr. Arneaux should be driven
out of the field by fire and allowed
by the people who he so faithfully
served to remain there.
