Teddy on the Sen..
By W. A. D. j # A* , Our Teddy’s on the <|eep, blue sea, He took a man-of-war, And sailed away right roily, To distant Panama. Our Teddy’8 on the deep blue 1 • sea, i) All smiling a bow’n’, He’s gone to distant Panama, f To view that ditch of our’n. i_ Teddy’s on the deep blue sea, A sailing by his lone self; Ye whales and fishes all lool out, He is a whale his own-self. Oh! Teddy play your trump of spades, Before the fates bewitch yoi And while you view that dis ditch, The folks at home will ditch you. | The Forum and ila Politico. 5 •• Since the inauguration of The ■ Forum and hitherto, we have^en v deavored to run a clean sheet, and have ever stood pat for the amelioration of crime, ignorance, superstition and licentiousness among our people. We believe in the broad principles as enun. ciated in the Republican party, but have not as yet, made our paper a partisan one. We have * always as a whole stood out bold, fyjmd conspicuously, for the Re. publicans a>nd have done more fo^the onward march of the g. o. p. yian we have had reciprocat ed. Our people are ardent sup porters of worthy enterprises of this kind as a whole and do not pay for such food for the brain as they shquld,- yet when a cam paign comes along, if a democrat man desires to run an advertis ment in our paper and help them to maintain a worthy enterprise, they stigmatize us. The Repub. lican party of Sangamon county knowns that the management of this paper has never betrayed them nor have we ever forsaken them. It is true we do not close our columns to any man on ac count of party when the man is, in our honest opinion, a clean man. When the Negro will come to front as a whole and surmort our worthy enterprises, then we shall be able to stand alone. We have no objection to expressing his views, but most people are too radical. The Negro is a man and has a right to support whom he desires, yet we are for the Republican party until a better one with more congenial princi. pies bobs up—but this does not say there are no democrats wor thy of your support, especially in states like Illinois. Tuesday's Election. Prom many stand points, the election last Tuesday, Nov. 6th, wq$ the .most exciting election in the history of oiir great republic in an off year. t The .fight was made strenuous and the work done arduous. The democrats were after s*s much as possible to reinforce their power 2 years hence, when again we elect a president. All eyes were centered on New York and Mas. sachusetts; both of these states elected republioan governors, but their pluralities were so small that “ uneasy still lie the heads that wear the crowns*' at Wash ington. Hughes is a man of strong personality, rare ability and and an able statesman—he is a presidential possibility. Who? Vivacious 'Retter’ When first I met ’er, I thought in my soul 'She was extremely bold. Society Galore. What bids fair to remain the most important society event of the season was the sumptuous banquetfgiven by the Social Sun. light Circle. This is an organization compos ed of 20 prominent of the city, married and single. On several occasions these la dies have tendered to their hus bands and gentlemen friends, re pasts, but not on such an elabor. ate scale as the one served at the Elk Cafe, the leading colored restaurant in the city, formerly the Kentucky restaurant operat ed by H. Tucker and jJ E. Thompson. Recently I. C. Crit tendon bought Tucker’s interest and the place has been thorough ly renovated, and on last Wed nesday evening presented a love ly appearance with its beautiful electric and gas arc lamps blend, ing with the magnificent costume and jewels worn by the guest. The proprietors have spared niether time nor money in beau tifying their place of business, auu nit; puunu seems to appre ciate their efforts. Gaines and plenty of music en livened the occasion and Miss Retta Davis, the chief priestess and moguel, was ready at all times and at all places to see that the guests were cared for. rhose present were: Mesdames D L Ward, E J Craddook, Chas Brown W Johnson; Misses Hattie Lobbins Fannie Johnson, A.

Subscribers who do not give ex press notice to the contrary are con sidered as wishing to continue sub scriptions. 2. If subscribers order the discon tinuance of their periodicals, the pub lisher may continue to send them un til all arrearages are paid. 3. If subscribers neglect or refuse ♦o take their periodicals from post office to which they are directed they are responsible until they have settled their bHls and ordered them discon tinued. 4. If the subscriber moves to an other place without informing the pub lisher, and the papers are sent to the former directions, they are held re sponsible. 5. The courts have decided that the refusing to take periodicals from postoffice, or removing and leaving them uncalled for, is prima facie evi dence of international fraud. 6. If subscribers pay in advance they are bound to give notice to the publishers, at the end of their time, If they do not wish to continue it otherwise the publisher is authorized to send it, the subscriber will be re sponsible until an express notice with payment of arrearages is sent to the I puuiisner. 7. The latest postal laws are such that newspaper publishers can arrest any one for fraud who takes a paper * and refuses to pay for It. Under this law the man who allows his subscrip tion to run along for some time, un paid, and then orders the postmaster to mark It "refused,” and has a card sent notifying the publishers, lays himself liable to arrest and fine, the Motto : ‘‘It is no benefit to have given me something, but it is a benefit to have enabled me to obtain something for myself.”—Emer son.
