Why theColorcd MenShould Rally Around the Republican Banner. Fellow Cltlrena: I feel milch enthused to-night at meeting such a large num. tier of my friends here In Mils hall, aa Jllalne and Logan men, and I am glad that the colored men, who ore Rlalno and Logan men, are united to tako part with their fel'ow citizens In this club meeting. No other party In America Invites the colored man to take equal part In their meetings, aa the ltepubll can party. This Is characteristic of that great party. The Jtepnbllcan party was tho first to recognize the colored man as a man; they were tin first to knock the ahacklcs from his limbs and his mind, and all along we have had tokens of recognition up to now, and even to-night; this la a token of friend ship to all colored men. There Is a great responsibility respecting the col ored man; much la expected of him; he Is expected to be n man, and I want to say here, to-night,. I belloTe, and many others believe It, that colored men throughout the South aro Kepubllcans In sentiment. Then as republicans we are called upon to go with the Kepubll cans and the Republican party. It Is not a white man's party, nor a black man's party. I read about the people's party, but tho Ilepubllcan party comes nearer to being the people's party than any other I have ever read of. Ap plause.) It Is the people's party after all; the name ltepubltcan Is honored and It will never swap that name for any other. That name electrifies and gath ers men together men who are capable of taking a sobcr-slded view of all questions that interest the publlo mind, and Judge Paschal, I think, distinguished himself to-nlglit by discussing so very briefly and mi nutely the great questions that will be argued through this campaign and I believe around the names of Blaine and Logan will be gathered the best and thinking men of America and they will show their hands on the election. Some colored men aald to me they bad a doubt aa to coming to this meeting. I should have been here sooner, but I was detained by them. I said It Is a Jllalne meeting, and we must show our bands. We Kepubllcans have suffered In the South when they were overreached by power. I will not say by fair means, for you all know how fair ft was, Applause; yu have lived here, and now we Intend to rally agalb. The Ilepubllcan party was defeated In the South, but It was not killed. It Is alive and It will rally. I want to say that the colored men in this elrotlon will take a greater part than In any previous election. There are colored men who have been trained In political schools, who can discuss all the 3uestlons that are at Issue and will be Isouseed. Some of these great discus sions will be carried on' by colored men men who aro In every way quali fied to discuss these great ques tionsmen vcho are wedded to the Ilepubllcan party and who cannot be deooved awav tir anr nromlses. The Ilepubllcan party Is not ashamed to take the colored man by the hand. Those who claim to know the negro better than anybody else, say tue Democratic p has never acted friendly toward the ored man. They want bis vote, but they want to get It through the back door. Applause. They would never allow a colored man to stand upon the rostrum to open his mouth In their assemblies North or South. The colored men may be Democrats If they want to, but they maybe out on the streets and not In their halls: and this Is a privilege I would not abuse to-nlcht. If these were not facts I should blush to mention them. When I see a colored man a Democrat I think he has some of the upper stories In his head to let. Laughter and applause. You have done everything you aan ; you have tried every way to please, and to prove to the Democracy that you were a party of peaceable and good feeling men. The Democratlo party are willing the colored men should vote for thorn, but they don't want the colored man to come upon the platform and discuss. If the colored men are to be recognized by them, why do they not Invite them; they say we are willing for you to vote ' for the Democratic ticket, but not will ing to let you go as n delegate to the convention. Many of the colored men of Texas, as well as other States, thought that the ltepubllcans had gone back upon them, because they did not do that, but It was because they could not protect themselves; white men had the advantage, and the rights of citizens were accorded to them, but colored men were cut off from these advantages. When the Democrats show that they treated the negroes aa citizens, It Is time enough for me to decide In my mind whether I shall be a Democrat or not, but 1 am afraid that time will never come. Ap plause. 1 do not offer this as an apol ogy, but I must say 1 am not prepared to dlsouss thla great question as to why I am a Republican, but while the Kepubllcans stand by Its time honored principles aa it has done from 18U0 up to now, and while It possesses such whole souled men as Blaine and Logan, I am a Ilepubllcan applause and every col ored man should rally around that standard, and wo will rally around It that Is another thine. When there Is Ilepubllcan and Democrat running lo cally or nationally, the matter is de cided In my mind by the two candi dates. I have never received any money for, my vote and never Intend to receive any. A 'few colored men might expect a great deal from the Ko publloan party: all I want from the party Is protection as an humble citizen. There was a man who offered me money to vote for him; his name was on my ticket, and I soratched his name ou"(ap plause.) I say to the colored men, your vote la preelous; It Is the only weapon placed tn your bands to protect your selves and families. I never ride to the polls in a oandldate's carriage, but al- ways walk. I am here to lift 'up my voice, and if I can say one word which Is encouraging, to those who ate some- wnai uespairingio-nigui, uu. Biu m 1 have come. Fellow citizens: I do not want the colored men to hold them selves to the highest bidder, I want you to act the part of men. What do the men say who buy your votes? They call you Ignorant niggers. W hy do they oiler you boots and shoes T Do not sell your votes 1 You can protect yourselves and your wives by them. If a Ilepubllcan comes out on the ticket he is n rascal ; no in urnuueu rauuuin, I remember nlaylne about the haystack. but it la not those days now. I must act like a man for the Ilepubllcan. We have Deen aisorganizeu, put. nave recovercu. Thus we suffered men to say to us that the ltepubllcans have no other men to offer but rascals and been abused by our political enemies. You cannot sum It up in any other way. It is a fact. You must recognize It. I will not say I never voted for a Democrat. I will tell you when I have voted for Democrats wuen all who wero running were Democrats. but If n Ilepubllcan were running, that decides It. Applause. There ought to be many among all these Intelligent faces here to-night who; aro worthy of the sutlrage or the voters In thla State and In this Government. These are some of the things that are uppermost In my mind, and 1 have simply spoken dis passionately upon what 1 think worthy of your consideration. I am not ashamed to stand upon one side of the fence, and I stand on the Ilepubllcan side, and when the Ides of November come there will be such an overwhelming majority that will cause Blaine and l.ngan to walk in with n giant's tread. ELECTION OF OFFICERS. A Good Captain Elected Will Go to New orieans. At a meeting of the officers and mem bers of the San Antonio Utiles, at their armory last night, an election of ofilcers was held, and resulted as follows : Frank J. Badger, Captain; C. N. Granger, First Lieutenant; Duval West.Second Lieuten ant; William Jlerfi", First Sergeant; J. V. French, Second Sergeant; . I. E. oung. Third Sergeant; John A. Green, Jr., Fourth Sergeant; J. O.

Captain Badger was ronnerly drill master for the well known Crescent lllfics, or New Orleans. In 1S82. He Is the man who carried off three prizes; one each at the Louisville. Indianapolis and Washington compelling drills, for the best drilled man. He is regarded as one of the best tactlolans In the United States, and the San Antonio Rifles are exceedingly fortunate In securing his valuable services. The company now numbers 43 members, and expects to begin active preparations about Janu ary, to enter the comnetltlng drill at the World's exposition In New Orleans, In April, and at Mobile, Alabama, later. A Reply. Editor Ban Anton'o Light ; Believing this was a free country, and that on that account every ottlzen en joyed, under the constitution mid laws, an Indisputable right of voting for whom he pleased as well as suggesting persons for publlo office, Fopultis suggested n citizens' ticket, composed of well known and respectable citizens. It was merely a suggestion, nothing else ; but for pre suming to suggest n ticket, the Times styles 1'opulus a "Smart Aleck." I ought perhaps to have obtained permission from the Gamaliel of tho Times to sug gest a ticket in opposition to the "ring." No nerson was denounced or arraigned by me, nor was any allusion made to the Times, dlreotlv or Indirectly. More over, the suggestion of a ticket was done anonymously, a circumstance which plainly showed a disinclination to court notoriety as well as to seem to icinte to me people wnom tney suoum vote. It requires a crent deal of smart ness In a newspaper to discover that the suggestion ot a lionet nnucrine circum stances, constituted Pomihts a "Stuart Aleck," and 1 concede the Times to be smart very smart. I'crhaps It vas treason to suggest that the "rlng" ought to be opposed by nil patrlotlo citi zens, who think the neonle are capable of choosing their olllcers. If "that be treason let them make the most of It." The Times d d not sav unvof the tier sons suggested by me were Incompetent or dishonest. 1'opulus looks upon a ring as n faction and a close corporation, and as contrary to the publlo welfare, and for that reason, he believes It ought to oe opposeu. l'orn.i; Birthday Honors. A very pleasant little gathering of friends assembled last night at tho rest- denoe of Sir. C. W. Dunn, on Avenue I). to attend tho birthday celebration or SIlss ellle Plngreo, n very accom plished young lady who has many friends In this elty and Is deservedly popular for her many graoes. During the evening lunnv beautiful nlnno reel tatlons were performed by the ladles and some ballads were sung, Partlcu larly worthy of note was the excellent piano performance of little Miss Kmma Alexnnuer, a tiny iniant or nine years, whoso nlavlnir was that of an adult per former, both In firmness of touch and artlstlo skill. The following ladles and fentlemen were present: Mr. and Mrs. lunii, the Misses Baker, Mojor and Mrs. Berry and daughter, SIlss Lizzie Berry, Mr. and Sirs. Folgcr, Emma and uue Aiexanuer, inaries naxer, Ar thur Dunn. Charles Faulkner and i LiniiTraan. About 12 o'clock the com pany dispersed, wishing the young iiusiess many nappy returns oi inc uay, A Valuable Enterprise Mr. F. Flato, or Flatonla, Fayette county, the rounder or that thriving little city, was In San Antonio yester day and exhibited some specimens or his own manufactured fire brlok and paving tiles, which are certainly su perior to anything of the kind yet shown tn this city. The fine quality of the material used in making them are not surpasssj) anywhere. Sir. Flato also has samples of fire clay and kaolin, the latter better known as porcelain earth, which la found plentifully In his lands at Flatonla. Mr. Flato visited San An tonio for the purpose of trying to In duce some or our capitalists to start a factory for the manufacture, on a Urge scale, of these bricks. Specimens can he seen at Holmgreen's foundry. DAMAGE OCCASIONED BY FROST IN NEW ENGLAND. A Negro Rapist Hung In Georgia -Mr. nialne's Wife's Sister Makes a Statement.

In tho fourth round Cardiff knocked Bradburn senseless and was awarded the victory. Lynciiiiuiio, August 23.

THEFT. A Llght.Klngered News Butcher In Trouble. J. T. Allison, a young man who has a room at tho Pacific uoardlng house out near the International depot, reported to Justice Adam this morning that he had been robbed of some $60 In currency, two railroad money checks for small sums, a pocket knife, derringer pistol and shoe-horn, by one Si. C. Weslbrook, last night. An affidavit was tuado out against Weslbrook and the ex amination had, and Weslbrook was hold to ball in the aumorSSOO, In default of which ho was placed tn the county Jail. Allison ststes that he and West brook occupied the sauie room, and that last night, on retiring, he placed his watch and money under the bed clothes and that Wcstbrook saw him do It. This morning tho money was gone, though the pocket book was lying where ho had hidden It. He accused West brook, who denied tho theft, nnd threatened to kill him. He searched Westbrook's clothing and found his pis tol, knlfo nnd shoe-born, and then wont out and told the landlady about It. On returning to the room the first thing ho noticed was a roll or greenbacks and the two checks sticking conspicuously out or one or the pockets or bis, Allison's, trousers, hanging on the wall. West- brook Is said to have been n railway train Duiener. it iooks iiKe a very oase against hlui. A Night Bloomer. Sir. Charlie A. Campbell, the polite prescrlpllonlst at A. Drelss' drugstore, Is a happy man to-day. He has had a lovely night-bloomlntr cereus placed on his desk by the fulr hands of a beautiful Fourth ward lady. The blossom bloomed beautifully last night, and attracted great attention. A Rumor. It Is rumored that Sir. Wllllo Weiss, business manager for the wholesale house of A. B. Frank & Co., will soon leave for New York city, and when he returns he win do accompanieu c-y a popular San Antonio lady, now in that city, as his wife. Sir.

Jose Maria Garcia, of Nueces county, discovered two Americans on the road to San An tonio, and Just entering the city, with a large bunch or horses, with mixed brands. He recognized some IS head in the bunch bearing the brand or his son In-law, Mr. Collins, or Nueces county. and thinking probably the horses were stolen, he sent a man to cut the stock out or tue ouncn anu put tuem in n pas ture, .tue man iook n aix-siiooter ana presenting it, rode Into the bunch and cut out the horses and pastured them. without any objection being made. The authorities were informed, but owing to a delay In making out the affidavits and necessary papers, the men skinned before they could be arrested. Several other well known brands wero recognized In the bunch, and tho great probability la mat mi me uorses wero stolen. A Correction. Editor Ban Antonio Llshti The Kvenlng Times, In mentioning the death of Sir, Charles Lachuian In yesterday's Issue, says that he was a member of four societies; that "the socie ties In San Antonio were notified of his death, but that none of them took any action, nor did any member or either society call." In contradiction I wish to say that within IS minutes after Mr. Laohman's death I, as a member nnd officer or dar Lodge 211, I. O. B. B., visited deceased with Sir. Hlrsch, member or lodgo at Waco, and that we remained until tho remains were placed upon tho ears and sent to Waco next morning. The Times' authority Is very ioor, and if he was at Sirs.
