Mr. Napier, was glad to make the following statement: "I notice in the Atlanta Inaepena- ent an editorial making an attack upon Mr. J. G Napier. The tenor of the' editorial is an effort to induce the president to recall his former con clusion to appoint Mr. Napier Register of the United States Treasury. I wish to say that I have lived in Nashville all of hit life (62 years), and nave known Mr. Napier intimately as long as I can remember anyone. I knew Mm as a bov and now as a man, and I take great pleasure in saying that he is an upright, Christian gen tleman, and is now and has been identifying himself with his race. I never heard of him making appli cation to the courts to pronounce him a white man. I knew his mother and father, both intimately. I know both of them were recognized and known as colored persons and neither he nor they ever tried to belong to any other race. The citizens of this city are very indignant over the matter. They Icok upon Mr. Napier as a imrn wor thy of any honor the Federal Govern ment has to give out, and it Is: rumored that a mass-meeting will be held as an expression of the disap proval of the people of the attack by The Independent. , Miladis Note Book AMONG OURSELVES WHIST CLUB.
