From The Washington Post The Post will be very frank with the esteemed Washington Bee and admit that the reason the white man doesn't concede more of the offices to his col ored brother i3 simply because he wants them for himself. The Bee has probably heard how the Indian fared at the white man's distribution of the turkey and buzzard. The white man continues to do business in the same old manner. Our very genial contemi orarv who penned the above excerpt and who is well known to the editor of this paper is satisfied that the re corder's office is not an asset in the estimation of the white man, so far as the negro is concerned, but our contemporary honestly admits thr.t all offices under the govern ment and money are the personal assets of the white man and his real assets are the government buildings and government lands. The negro comes in by suference only. We thought that was the opinion of our white citizens, but did not believe that they would ad mit it. e admire honesty ana bravery even if it is against us. We beg leave to inform the Post howevt-r. that the table will turn one of these days after its .passage through the clouds into the great unknown, where there will be no assets person or real. A NATIONAL ORGANIZATION There was a large meeting of the National Protective Association held on last Wednesday night at the Vermont Ave. Baptist church for the jUrpose of installing the of ficers of the association. Mr. J. W. Cromwell, called the meeting to order and announced the nnmber of officers to repre sent the association. Vice presi dents representing every state in the Union, were appointed. The rice president for the District of Columbia, is Col. P. H. Carson, who was called to the chair and made a forcible speech. He said among other things, that it was highly important for the colored people to organize. He did not believe in pretended leadership. He cited a case where a colored man had s white woman appointed, when Public Printer Benedict had offered the place to a colored wo man. Col. Carson said, that this leader was not present, but as soon as he met him he would expose him to the people. Ex-Congressman Murray was in troduced and made a most eloquent speech n the importance of a na tional organization among the col ored people. Our esteemed contemporary the Daily Pest is Wave enough to make an open confession The Bee has advocated the im portance of a national organization for Eome time Dr. Hunter of Kentucky has withdarwn, but the opinion, of friends is he wll come out ahead. OHIO'S GREATEST NEGRO Continued from ist page. At the end of seven years, he had not only succeeded In purchasing a home for his mother, where she spent the remainder of her life, free from want; but he had also, by studying during the spare hours allotted to him, succeeded, witnout a .teacner, in pre paring himself in English, Latin, and Mathematics, to enter the Cleveland Central High School, whence he was graduated, at the head of his class, (all white except himself), in less than three years; having gained one year and one month, by hard study ;" al though he worked in dining-rooms for his board and lodging during the whole time, and was excused at ten minutes before the rest of his class, each noon, in order that he might reach the hotel in time to take his place to wait on the dinner table. Having graduated, he immediately entered upon the study of law, in the office of the late Judge Jesse P. Bishop, of Cleveland. Afterwards, upon the invitation of the late General John Crowell, he entered the Ohio Law Col lege, from which he was graduated, in the Summer of 1S70.

In 1S92, Mr. Green was elected by a large majority to the Senate of Ohio, representing "in that august body the 25th Senatorial District, w hich includes the beautiful and wealthy ci y of Cleve land. tAt the conclusion of his term in the Senate, Mr. Green, whose health, owing to long service at the bar and in politics, was in a very pre carious condition, retired from politics temporarily and made an extended tour in Europe. Returning, he stood, in the Summer of 1S94, as a candidate for one of the Judges of the Court of Common Pleas of Cuyahoga Ccunty, Ohio.

There is only one way to cure Deafness and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused bv an inflamed con dition of the mucous' lining of the Eu stachian Tube. When this tube gets inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed Deafness is the result, and unless the inflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be de stroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by catarrh, which is noth ing but an inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces. Ve will give One Hundred Dollars for any case of Deafness (caused by catarrh) that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure. Send for circulars, free. F. J. CHENEY & Co , Toledo, O.

You should not make a speech especially in a public audience, except you know what you intend talking about. The people of to-day are very criticising and I would advise you here after to put your thoughts in writing, and always read from your paper until ! you become more versed in the line of public speaking, you are a sedate girl and your thoughts are usually good, but a large crowd seems to ex cite vou. Take mv advice and read ! choice literature. There is something pitable about the girl who will marry a man because he has a profession, or owns a house and above all is good looking. It is awful to let such folly lure one into a life time business. Often after the profes sion fails, house is sold and good looks disappear, there is no founda tion to go upon and a divorce suit is bound to follow. It is well to marry for ones good disposition and reaj personal value and not for ones worthy Mr. L. H. Harris, corner 3d and F streets southwest, is the best drug'i store in South Washington.
