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

While adhering to the princi

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.

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.

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

The point is well taken.
