Dallas, Tex. The Dallas Express, in refering to the article in the Cincinnati En quirer relative to Prof. Washing ton's treatment, has this to say: Served him right. Why in the devil did not this big "Nigger'5 go to some of the hotels and boarding houses kept by his own race ? No, he would rather have been there in a back room next door to a closet in the Emery than in the parlor of the best Negro family in the town. Yet, this fellow is stvled the smartest Negro in America. We vote no. Smartness and culture carry with them manhood and independence. What is true of Washington is true of the majority of so-called big "Ne groes." We have them in this city who would rather subscribe for and 1 pay two prices for back numbers of white papers, than read the best Negro papers in tfre country. Yet these fel lows are to be entrusted with the edu cation of our children, and when they have graduated they will not have an idea above an ovster. Delegations to the White Honae are beginning to be chestnuts. The President will make his first appointment of color in a few days. Not a colored editor has been recognized for his services as yet. Air. Isaac H. Smith, the "orig inal"' McKinley man, banker, etc., has assured everybody that he will be Rtcorder of Deeds. Colored appointments are slowly coming. No doubt they will arriTe about June. There has been a great deal of talk going around as to the 'new negro." Who is this "new negro?" It is said that he is not the "ne gro ' prior to and subsequent to emancipation, but he possesses manhood and is considered a politi cal factor. If it is meant bv the EMANCIPATION DAY. cnew negro, that he is the man From the Omaha Progress. The lGth of April will be a day of rest for Afro-Americans. Wbsh ikgtox Bee. For what ?

If the white man in" every part of our countrv cannot accept this invitation, we will thus prove that the problem is a white man problem rather than a Negro problem." The white man. it is true, re spects industry in any race of neo ple. He likes money and will bow to manhood. He dislikes a syco phant or a knaTe. The colored man must show that he can do as muclias the white man. and a it good. The white man is jealous of the colored man when he is strug gling, but after he has reached the ladder of fame he respects him.

President McKinlev is over crowded now. He is not too busy, however, to see the people when they call. That exclusiveuess that surrounded Mr. Cleveland has been banished. President McKinlev knows how to treat the people when they c&ll, which will, no doubt, make him a popular President with the American people. He. like other great men, has his enemies. He is admired by the great men in the country became he knows how and when to speafc. President McKinlev, who i an admirer of Mr. Bruce, will very shortly nominate him to a position commensurate with his merits. MR. S. B. HAGE.
