HE CHANGED HIS HEART. Ex-Senator John H. Williamson of Raleigh, N. C, is in the city making arrangements for the publication of his new book. Among .other things Mr. Williamson said that he was a tree silver advocate, and the time has come for the colored man to be independent. All of this talk about colored people being lynched in the South is false. There is more prejudice in Washington than there it in North Carolina. 1-bKsONAL 1'OINTS POINTEDLY OUT. HUM I SEWS AND EVENTS TRANSPIRED NC , OIR LAST ISSUE. OTHER MAT T1RS WORTHY OF CAREFUL CON SID1 RATION. From reliable sources it is said that a new Recoreer of Deeds will be ap ,,ointed next week, or very .shortly hereafter. The question that is being ,nsnlered is, whether an outsider or a District man will be appointed. fc.x Senator Higgins of Delaware is urging Mr oshua Parker. The President iMsierv kindly to Mr. Higgms, and ,s anxious to do something to please him. Fx-state Senator John P. Greene of i. ,v nrsnnallv well known to the President, but it is not likely that Mr. btceiic will get the Recordership if he f..es outside of the District. Dr George W Bryant of Baltimore, Md is a candidate, and is largely, in dorsed by the Maryland delegation. Aside from the indorsement that Dr. B'jant has received from his State, the w hue republicans are making no effort t.. ha him appointed. Already there .s a tight against Dr. Bryant by the old rtsitient colored politicians in the Mate The Young Men's Colored Re publican Club, and, indeed, all the ...lored republican organizations in the biate are opposed to him. r.x-Collector J. C. Dancy of Wil mington, N.C., is being pushed for the Recorder of Deeds by the rank and hie of the white and colored republican vote The white republicans want Mr. I aiu out of the State to enable them to have smooth sailing. These are the methods that are being adopted by the white republicans throughout the South If colored re publicans are side-tracked and sent to make application lor places ouisiuc 01 their State, they go to the White House and indorse some white republican. Stevens of Alabama, a political fore in his State, is supporting a white re publican. Prof. John M. Langston is making a manh fight for District Commis sioner. There is no reason why some Afro-American should not be one of the District Commissioners. Mr. lames T. Bradford of Baltimore, Md., is being urged for Recorder of Deeds by Mr. Daniel Murray and others. Mr. Murray is a member of the Episcopal Church of this city, and he is a very active young man. What rlaim Mr. Bradford has on the District, no doubt, Mr. Murray will explain. He ill not he appointed, however, so the lhstrut republicans need not worry. ROBINSON'S TESTIMONIAL. Mr. Magnus L. Robinson, the oldest editor in the State of Virginia, whose printing office was destroyed by fire a few weeks ago, will be tendered a complimentary testimonial at Odd Fellows' Hall in Alexandria, Va., on next Monday evening, March 29th. Every patriotic editor who cannot at tend should at least send Editor Rob inson the price of one or two tickets. The Bee starts off by sending Editor Robinson the price of two tickets. There will be many attractions at this entertainment, and it is hoped that the friends of the editor and lovers of jour nalism will see to it that Editor Rob inson is assisted in restoring his office. Help our brother craft. Show for once that you have a heart. MAJOR BRACKETT APPOINTED. Secretarv Gage, who will no doubt, make one of the most popular Cabinet officers under the present administra tion has appointed Major Fred. Brack en Chief of the Appointment Division. Major Brackett was strongly backed for the Chief Clerkship, and had it not been for Senator Piatt, who had a can didate in the person of Theodore Swayze, of New York, a thorough re publican, Major Brackett would have been appointed to his old position. It took the entire State of New York with Senator Piatt behind her to side track Major Brackett to the appointment di vision. Secretarv Gage could not have se lected a better man for the Chief of the Appointment Division than Major Brackett. It is gratifying to his many thousand friends and admirers to kno'w that his services hxve been appreciated. SUNDAY SCHOOL UNION. WHAT THE BEE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW. Will Afro-Americans be satisfied. Who will be struck by official favors. Do politicians know that it takes force to demand recognition. Who will succeed Judge Kimball. Who will be the first Afro-AmeHcan recognized. Has Bishop Arnett got a cinch on this administration. If prosperity has not commenced to how itself. Will District Attorney Davis appoint .-wro-.jmerican prosecuting oiuccr. The Baptist Sunday School Union of the District of Columbia has been in corporated by articles filed by Enoch Harris, Eliza Barnes, George A. Cart ter. G. W. Banion, Carter Braxton, Isaiah J. Lewis, and Willie Robinson. The promoting of the growth and use fulness of the Baptist Sunday Schools of the District and aiding in the moral and religious instructions of those at tending the schools and started to be the objects of the association. The Union is in a better condition than it ever has been. The presept in corporators are well-known citizens and Sunday School workers. Steward's Conservatory of Music Hall, 12th and R streets northwest, last Monday evening presented a - Krliiinnt annparance. I he hall was beautifully decorated with Ameri can flags, Chinese tans anaiaiuems. Tn thP rentre of the hall, over the pre siding officers' head, was a large Chi nese umorella. The walls were deco rated with greens and small flags, and the chandeliers were covered with Chinese paper. At 7 o'clock or a little after there were fully 200 colored citizens present. Aii ro,mi tn h enthusiastic and m- terested in the reappointment of Com- . itT r Cnw Mietrirt missioner jonn v. ivuss ui in.v... Commissioner. At 7: is the meeting was called to order, and Editor W. Calvin Chase of The Bee was chosen presiding officer, with Messrs. W. A. Stewart as secre tary and m. V. Crusor assistant secre tary. . , Mr. Chase, in opening the meeting, said that the colored citizens may well congratulate themselves on their unanimity of sentiment relative to the District Commissionership, and feel that their conscience is free of ingrati tude towards a man who has demon strated by acts that the poor man, as well as every citizen, irrespective of his color or condition, is an American citizen in his estimation Commis ;nr i?r,c in whose interest this meeting of his admirers and fellow citizens is called. , At the conclusion of Mr. Chase s re marks, Major Geo. W. Stewart, presi dent of the West End McKinley Club, moved that a committee of three De appointed on resolutions. The chairman appointed Messrs. Stewart, Crutchers and Payne. While the committee was out the secretary read the following letters from ex-Senator B. K. Bruce and Dr. Dan'l H. Williams, Surgeon-m-Charge of the Freedmen's Hospital. Ex-Senator Bruce said: "I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your letter inviting me to attend a meeting in the interest of the reappointment of Commissioner John W. Ross I regret that a previ ous engagement prevents me from beinsr present. I am, however, heartily in favor of the reappointment of Mr. Ross as Commissioner of the District of Columbia. Mr. Ross has discharged the duties of this office with such ab solute fairness and superior ability .that I am sure that his retention as an of ficer of the District of Columbia will meet with the approval of all who are interested in the welfare of our com munitv. Very truly yours, B. K. Bruce." rr Willinint; said: "I wish to say that I heartily en dorse Hon. John W. Ross for Commis sioner of the District of Columbia. Verv truly yours, Daniel II. Williams. The committee, through Chairman Stewart, reported a resolution, which was unanimously adopted, to Mie effect that the colored citizens, in mass meet ing assembled, indorse the reappoin tment of John W. Ross as District Commissioner, and appeal to the President of the United States to give the resolution favorable consideration; also that a committee of six citizens be appointed by the chair to present the resolutions to the President. The chair appointed Major Stewart, George H. Lee, Justice E. M. Hewlett, Rev W. Bishop Johnson, D. D., and Arthur Payne. On motion of Major Stewart) Mr. Chase was elected chairman ex-officio. to present the actions of the committee to the President. A mass meeting of colored citizens was held at the Capital Savings Bank last Monday night for the purpose of indorsing Chapin Brown fcr District Commissioner. Friends of Lorin M. Saunders captured the meeting and adopted resolutions indorsing him and J. W. Ross for appointment. A similar meeting, held at Wesley Zion Church, on D street southwest, Monday night, indorsed Chapin Brown and John W. Ross for Commissioners and 1 i' uancv ior Kecoruer ui ."1T ( W The politicians are g tting worried- They have oegun to think that the golden caif they saw be fore the nomination and election of Major McKinley is slow materili zing. There is much unrest among the boys. I mean the colored poli ticians. Some of them have filed tons of papers, that will do no good. Well the Congressmen 111 the States are compelled to indorse them, which thev think is an easy matter to be relieved of them. There is not so much boasting among the colored politicians. The negro politician, Myers, of Ohio, who informed Senator Ilanna that all colored papers and certain col ored men amounted to nothing is now seeking notoriety from the very papers that he aeciareu w ere no good. This negro is a barber by occupation, who is known in the Slate of Ohio as Mr. Hanna's bar ber. These kitchen cabinet colored men have great influence sometimes over certain classes of white people. It makes no difference how many indorsements you have from dis tinguished and influential peo ple, the kitchen cabinet will get together and discus? pro and con, the merits anJ demerits of the col ored applicants ajd conclude that it would be a dangerous thing to allow the colored brother to be ele- 'jtut ro a nnsit.inn f.hat hfi r.-innot fill. The oreiudice white republi- I cans and the kitchen colored cabi net often defeat the aspiring col ored politicians. 1 have often heard thee members of the kitchen cabinet say to their white boss : Mr. Secretary, I un derstand that Jim Smith is a can didate for the Haytian mission, or Jim Brown is a candidate for Col lector of Custom. He is a "nigger we colored people do not like. 'Why Jim?" "Because he puts on so many airs ' "He do all kinds of things, Mr Secretary, agin our people." This member of the kitchen cabinet has fixed him. Our Great Rebuilding It rr.nvR ) 1 oo Specials for this week N. Thp RllCV Cnrnar- V 8th and Markpt finsre fffi AT S. Kaon, Sods 6 Co.

' 35TH Anniversary Celebration Notice Served on Bogus Solicitors. It is very hard for the colored ap plicant to overcome the stab he has rece;ved. The white man will be lieve his colored servant. Another remarkable thing is, to see how much deference is paid to the kitchen cabinet by some colored politicians when they call to the residence of some of the parlor cabinet officers. The colored poli tician is either asked to wait, sit in the hall, or he is not at borne. The colored politicians with all of his great constituency behind him is a coward. I notice very often when colored members of Congress, go to the departments, they hold their hats in their hand. At the out side door they bow and scrape like some of the old corn-field "darkies," i3 the way the white man puts it, when they are about to annroach the hiffh officer. If the colored man could be convinced that it is not necessary for him to play monkey and parot he will be more respected. There are thousands of colored office-hunters patiently waiting for something to turn up. Some of them will be waiting untu iyuu. Cyrus. other States, who don't live here from sending their children to our public schools, unless they like others, inthis citv pay taxes to support the schools or "live in the city at any rate. There are people from Alexandria, Va., who have no interest in this city whatever, send their children to our public schools and after they graduate and receive aopointments they spend their money in Virginia. Ought this not to be stopped? That is the reason that so many of the girls who live in this city are unable to obtain schools. There are several teachers , now residing in and are citizens of Alexan dria, Va., teaching in the public schools. Is this to be continued ?
