ex Chief Jkkuy Li:e, who was stricken down
while in the performance of duty; and
whereas, we deem it fitting and proper that

of the sincere tegret we feel nt bis loss;
therefore, be it
llesolvctl, That in ex-Chief Jkkuy Leu we

society it was ever a plensme to be, and we
deeply deplore his lo-s.

Editor Roundabout :
Knowing that you are not publishing n
political sheet, yet I crave your indulgence
io snow up a piece ot antt
in the Yeoman which ought not to
go uncorrected. I give the extract alluded
to in full :
Colored" Men in Office.
The following colored men are employed
in the State offices at Fratikfott:
David Gray, janitor in the Geological
Survey. Has been there four years. Salary,
S3") per month.
L. T. Chuk, State ltisuiancennd
Department Has been there three
ears. Salary, 35 per month.
James W. Gordon, Common School Department."
lias been there one year. Salary,
$15 per month. Hei a student for the
ministry.
James Coleman, Porter in the Auditor's
Department. Salary, $35 per month. Has
had twenty years' service.
Robert Hammond, in the Governor's Department.
Salary, $35 per mouth ; al-o
Flem. Martin, $10 per month.
Butcher, Land Olhee and Adjutant
General's Ollice. Salary, $35 per month.
Has been in ollice eight years.
Robert Looiuis has seen (oity years' service.
Has chaige o( yawls dining the session
of the Legislature and gets $J per dav;
at other seasons $1'J per month.
The pay of these men is $212 per month,
or per annum, a greater sum, wel
venture to say, than is received by colored
men in the Stnto from all sources of Federal
patronage. Though thev furnish 40,000 of
the Republican vote, whe.ii it comes to
lavors or substantial aid they have to look
to the Democrats for it, and they are subject
to no jayhubbliiig. Yeoman.
To show that the above is not correct in
its allusions to the Republican party it is
only necessary to say that there are now
employed in the Internal Revenue Department
in this (the 7th) District five storekeepers
and guagers who are colored men
as follows:
W. L. Smoots, of Bourbon county.
Henry Scroggins, of Fayette comity.
T. J. Jackson, of Fayette county.
W, M. Jnckson, of Fayette county.
Geo. C. Bailey, of Scott county.
These men receive a monthly pay eacli
of $104, or an annual salary, in the total,
of $0,240, or more than double what U
paid to these six men by the Democratic
State Government. These are all the Yeoman
can show, while the Republicans make
their allowing for this Revenue District
alone. The other districts are fully up witli
this. The Yeomau had best know, next
time before it blows so loudly.
Fa i u Play.
Mr. B. F. Porter, a rich bunker1 in Utica,
N. Y,, says: I have used Brown's Iron
Bitters the past year, much to the cluiurin
of our family physician, myself,
wife, nor little girls have since mi tiered fiom
a single day's illness, It is making us all
robust and strom;."
