It is a little astonishing that so many people are inclined to make so much fuss about that Wah-ington-Wanaroaker incident. X one who understands the negro and the negrophile Northerner need be surprised at these occas ional evidences of two fools well met. John Wanamaker has plenty of sense to make money and not much in any other direction, and hence any man with $600,000 in bonds to the good i9, in his eyes, good enough to have as a guest, and a nigger with that much money was a mountain of great ness to poor, pigmy-minded little John. We should remember that, even among U3, money makes "white trash" respectable in cer tain social circles, and our uncle John concluded that a first-clas9 nigger with $600,000 was the equal of a fourth-class white man. Our old uncle was not far wrong about that, and he found his equal in measure in Booker, who in the whole role showed less sense than did Wanamaker, and who with his knowledge of the conditions and needs of his race should not have put in peril its interest for the privilege of promenading with a senseless damsel and an old scatterbrained political has been, whose only possible influence has been through his money, much of which has come from the South. In the interest of the negro race, for which Booker Washington could have done so much, it is a pity that he had not remained poor, for money ha9 turned his head and caused him to absolute, ly preclude any future good to his race, so far as he is con cerned. The incident is the pas. sage of Booker Washington as a quantity in the South looking to the education and betterment of the interest of the negro race, and for one I am sorry to see so brilliant a sun of promise to these people sink behind the clouds of inexcusable folly. Mr. Wana maker is just as honest and fool ish as the old farmer who yoked himself with a young steer to find out that a man can raise a steer and then be made a fool of by it with nobody to ''stop us two fools." The whole summing up of the matter is tkat Booker Washing ton is as good as John Wanama ker, and John Wanamaker is, on his own plea, no better than Booker Washington, and there fore neither is any better than a common negro, and we need not bother about them. Let Uncle John and his gal have Booker, and let Booker have Uncle John, for neither of them wi'l have much, and nobody else will have lost anything. We will manage somehow to get along without them, to keep the fever out of Memphis and build up the South upon the sound basis of a white man's govern ment unto prosperity for all, white and colored alike, and should Booker become a widower and marry that woman we will congratulate them and wish that they may live happily ever thereafter amid the gentle sun shine and moonlight of their Northern nome, wniie tney re main ,'two souls with but a single thought, two hearts that beat as one.
