They have taken the negro JI full fellowship. The die has been cast, the Rubt con crossed. The erstwhile "lily white" Republicans have fnally thrown aside their proud badge of I distinction, given them in virtue of the fact that they were Indisposed to t recognite the equality of the negro, we mean political equality. At their convention held last Monday week, they took the "brother-in-black" in fall political fellow ship by electing a negro one of the four delegates at large to the Philadelphia convention, and another negro as his alterna.e. Joseph LeBlIao-we believe the same LeBlsac who resided here at one time-and Charles A. Bourgeois are the two lucky colosd men so chosen. Thus the negro ametill a factor in Republican politics, since he must be rackoned with ant recognised by even the erstwhile proud "lily whites." That is what we have always con tended: That whoever called him self a Republican had, sooner or lat er, to recognie toe political equality of the negro, and to bend before it, for that equality is one of the funds mental doctrines of the national Re publican party. To be a Republican one has to embrace the doctrine of the party faith, however oonomious some of them may be. In accepting this fundamental) principle of the Republic.,: lart,.. the erstwhile "lily whites" have ta - ea an advanced forward step in the march of their political evolution, and may now be reckoned fall-fedg Lipubli ans, without amdt or sums. They are Republicans pure and simple, sad only need the recognition of the national Republican party to roand them out Will they receive that eoveted rec. qgition ? Ah I there's the rub I Wolieal Intolreames. Wa are relIably informed that one of the overseers on one of the God chana plantations about Rave land, shortly after the reeent election, notified a certain merchant from the third ward that be was no longer per mitted to go on the Godchanz estate to deliver goods sold, as he, the said merchait, had been doing in the past. The overseer claimed to be acting under Instruction from his employer, Mr. Jules Godchaux, in thus notify. lng the merchant not to set foot on the plantation any more to deliver goods sold. Noe, this merchant was am aeive lkemoorat in his ward, and availing hImself of his right of a free Ameri can eltiseu be not only voted tihe "emocratic ticket but labored n thbe interest of his cuse. The refusal to allow him to enter the Godclhau estate, to pursue a law. tl business, eoming as it does on the bels of the election from which Mr. Godohba emerged a defelated iepubeism candidate, has all tie ear-marks of poitiaos intolerano, To be sure, Mr. Glodchlu l lord ad mester of hbi domain, and has the power to prohibit entry tbereoo, LIut if be prohibt any one from motives political revenge, as the indications poinat that he did in this case, then he is gailty of the meanest sort of po;i tiuml istoleramee, aed predasm0 hum self a man 6t very sansi caliber.

Amendl the Election Law. ti il The election iqw has been tried and found good. From all accounts the t people, the rank and file, like it, and o would not return to the old system. They seem to be particularly well ly pleased with the secresy of the bal lot, and in that connection it is sog- t gested that booths be required for to the counotry, as well as for large ' iaties, in order to better protect this er cresy. The voter should be unob- t served by any human eye, when pri paring his ballot, to the end that he eas out an absolutely free and ntram- I melled vote. ' Let the legis'ature amend the law ia this respectat its cming session, 1 and it will have taken another step me li the dirvetin of securing to the re people a secret, sad, consequently, n a free ballot, so oondrlve to fair I elections. -- - 'en And now the Hoe D.

WASIINGUTON LETTER.I (Ifrorm our requnlrCorrespoinde t.) WAasriNOTOs, MAY 4, 1900. Di's the admdnistratin really favor the NiLaragua Canal ? In view of the I known condition of public sentiment, - that question may sound odd, but which p.eceded the passing of the Nicaragua Canal bill by the House which made it pertinent. Represen. tative Hephurn. of Iowa, who was ti charge of the bill, had a se,,satiom.al row with Representative Cannon, if Ill., a wan close to the administra tion, whom he charged with working in the Interest of the Panama Canal ring, in trying to defer action on the bill. Representative Burton, of Ohio, also a man close the the ad ministration, made a speech against naming the route of the canal in the bill. These things were enough to i:rouse the suspicion that the admin istration was not acting in gool faith, and there were others. It is said that the failure of the Canal Commission to make a preliminary report was owing to a hint from the administration. Perhaps Bose uan. us thinks of working the Panama Canal Company for a big campaigo contribution. At any rate, it is well known that the bill just passed by the House will not be acted upon by the Senate at this session. Capt. Chadwick has found out that the protection extended to Rear Ad maral Sampson by the adm:nistration does not include all of Sampson's friends. Secretary Long's letter re primanding Chadwick-the second within a year for the same off ,ne-, published this week, for slurring at Rear Admiral Schley, was about as stingiiLb a docum. nt as was ever sent by a Secretary of the Navy to an officer; but the universal verdict is that Chadwick got no more than he deserved. Senator Sewell, of N. J., has more nerve than most of the republitcao o Senators on tie trust question. His republican colleagues work for the r tru.ta on the quiet, but he had the audacity to say in a speech on th. I: loor of the Senate that the Standard Oil trust and the Sugar trust were public benefactors. A few more I benefactors like them and there will r be no more trusts. Benefactions of the sort they bestow contain the germu of revolution. Senator Petti. 1 grew presented figures showing that ti neither of the trusts named by Mr. I Sewell had done anything which was 1 I, not directed toward the crushing out I of competition and the increase of 2' their own profit. d S From every direction cmes the a Ir strongest evidence that the tepubli 1 cans have a hard fight before them. I r Nobody realises this any better than t a Boss Hanna, and he sl frank enough I e to say so. That there is a general t 4 revolt against the policies and prace tiers of the McKinley administration I is certain, although its strengh is as yet amuertain. Ml. H. J. Jackeo, a r business man of Fall River, MaI, I. has been showing his Washington b friends a letter written him by a is prominent citizen of Massachusetts, I from which the following is quoted : "F'rom this distanoe it looks as s though the game of national politics F- is going to be a hard one for Presi. a, dent McKinley to play this year. r The coming of the. Boer emiesaries seems likely to stir up a hornet's nest among the Irishmen and the German Dukh sympathizers of the Boers in wthis country. The longer the war a continues the American sentiment . seems to grow against Englalnd." * Mr. Jackson says of the political 1 outlook : '.The republicans are going 1, to have trouble is New uEnglanLd. N There are a great manuy causes to which this cam be attributed." Yes, and the- are utang to have troule in all ;he other setiMons of the country, and they ait nely goinug to get what h they deserve. - The U. 8. Supreme Court, after y speidiig two days hearing arguments a in the Kentucky case, took a rcces d nutil iAlay 14, when the decisioc will n prolably be made public. r It look as though the republican r. leaders in Congress had become Safraid.to carry out the imperialistic f programmoe mapped out by Mr. Mec *, Kwley, until after the Preadential at election. The Spooner Philippines i. bill, which gives Mr. McKinley auto cratic control of the Philippines un a der civil government, wht h he now ta exercises under military gcverament, Sias slated for postponement until the Snext sesioa of Congress. Public ae sentiment has frightened the repub on iican steering committee of the Senats re and ita members ignore the Spouer el lill in preparing a legislative pron m grsamme for the remainder of the rI present session. This does not mean p. the abaudonment of that imperialistic measure, but that the relpublicans are afraid to pas it now fur fear of its eflect upon the voters. The republican majority in the ill eate stood by the trusts and voted Sdown 8enator Berm y's anti trust a mendment to the army bill, which ' merely instructed purchasers of ary Ssupplies to give prefereaue to hiklers not connected with a trust. Not a a-ngle democrat voted against the d' amendment, but Jones an I 8tewart, d of Nevada, who ones dclaimed to ie populist. but who both seem to have n' returncsl to their repiblican afflia tion did. Teller, Pestigrew and Wellingtono voted with the demcnata, v. for the amendment.
