To the Forum— Under the above caption in your iast issue, some adherent of Otis Duncan undertook the task of showing why Mark An thony's candidacy was ill-advis ed, etc. It certainly is. To the minds of many it seems as but yesterday since he was conspicu ous in a monster demonstration given for one David Hill. There were spectacular banners unfurl ed to the gentle breezes, and one especially, attracted marked at tention, being inscribed with “Our Second Emancipation.’’ Behind this elaborate banner with ill-timed inscription, Negro democracy kept step to the tune of music. This is vividly remem bered. For these, reasons his candidacy is ill timed. There was much cause for elation when Mr. Anthony re turned to the threshhold of Re publicanism, and well there should have been, for lie posses ses excellent political sagacity and excellent things could have been his portion, but he is now doomed to defeat by his younger opponent. Another reason why \ ft .. Ail _ » 1 1 • • . 1 4V1 i . nutuwiiv a UdllUIUctU) IS III timed. To polute the church with po litical schemery, is a thing to be deplored. While adhering to the princi ples of democracy, for which In* so persistently fought, not once in all those years did he ask any thing at the hands of that party. His work, evidently, was for the extolling of others, coupled with a labor of love and devotion. Thus the inadvisability of whis candidacy. Mr. Anthony should withdraw tor by so doing he would save himself from irretrievable de teat. To be d feated is so hu miliating. Otis Duncan has been the oen ter of attraction since reaching his majority in that ward for his almost sacred loyalty to Republi can principles. He has, with genuine courage, so characteris tic of his nature, been manly in his political dealings. If loyalty to party principles, unadulterat ed trueness to friends, ability gained by extensive experience, past service to a party, count for anything, then Duncan should have even Anthony's support. Yes, Anthony’s candi lacy is ill-advised.—A Voter, (1st prci Is ward. Should the Miners Strike. One of the largest organiza tions in this country, is the Unit ed Mine Workers of America This vast aggregation of work men are now proposing to quit work on the first of April because their employers refuse to raise their wages. It is not a settled fact that they shall strike, but a strike is imminent- While we be lieve iliat the miners should lie accorded iheir rights; we believe also' that the operators should have a square deal. The miners, we are prone to believe. are too hasty in their deliberations in many things and too easily angered. They fail to study the problem from an economic stand point. There can be nothing gained by a strike at this tune and we believe that all things considered, they should not pre cipitate a strike, causing great suffering, not among the opera tors, but among themselves. In making demands fora more enlightened ministry it must not be presumed that the faithful services of the loyal fathers are forgotten. They have wrought well in their day and modern disciples are building on the foundations which they have laid. Young men who are enter ing the ministry now should be required to make some intellect ual advancement. It is all folly to expect a man to preach effect ively who is not prepared to use the English language with any degree ol accuracy.— N. B. Union j Nashville, Tenn. The point is well taken.
