The alernneaa aud rienrtlebnefca of the repreebion of tt.e Negro raco ia the most aturtling linug ttidt lias uttructecl my alteulion unco coming here. That we, in our boasted "land or iiberly," sli iuld rear amongst us bucii " hideous product of tyranny and injustice is a &lrauge coiunieul on the fallibility of huuirfn institutions. We, whu look with such mornful HUpenorily on oilier nutiund of the world, burbur it vast eysleiu of racial distinc tion rivaliog the crudity of medmeval iimet-. We protest iigmuKt the barbarity ma C7.ar of Kussia diepluvs toward the Jewish race. Our great journals devote culuuuiri ot space iu their daily issue to condemnation of his cruelty. Noble minded men and women seriously ltd vise thut, as the acknowledged exponent ol higher government, it ib oui duty to make it a mutter of national coucern. The opuredsiuu of the Armenians Hppeulti to our sj mpathies so ulrongly hs to al most perbuade us into entiinglemente trom which the crowned heuddof Euroi.a shrink. We have wasted volumes of eloquence over Ei'gland8 dreadful wrongs to Ireland, aud the damning atrocities ot Spauish rule in Cuba caubed our meek and long bulTerir-g "Uncle ri.imuel" to jump up, crack his heels together aud shake his enlightened lisxt beneath the barbaric noses of the tyrant Dous. While this is going on, aud has been going ou for yeais, one race in our own land in denied the chiefest of the rights of citizenship wnmli are guaranteed them by the coiislll'ition. Iu this com monwealth where we, who volunteered to tight in defense of liberty, are now quartered, as each year rolls around, black meu are killed like hunted beasts fur insisting on the right of suffrage which was mockingly given them "with out regard to race, color or previous condition of servitude." I defy the most lindane enemv of the colored race lo tind to Russian oppression or in Spanish cruelty an thing more cowardly, contemptible and treacherous than the massacres that have disgraced South Carolina this present month. Not only this, but the resident whites regard our presence here as a safeguard against any "demonstrations" by the blacks. What this means is more apparent when we consider the social position tne negro may occupy without being guilty of making a "demonstration." The rights he has may be better shown by show ing what he has not.lle is allowed reason able freedom in all things save those distinctive ot manhood and indepen deuce. So long as he consents to slave .iloug without ambition, so long as he it content to be the ignorant brute he ia regarded, so long he is "tolerated." But when he dares to dream of manly de meanor, this amounts to covert demon stration." Let him raise his eyes and assert himself a mau entitled to equul rights before the !a. with the humblest white, and he mnts punishment or even death. Long generations of slavery, with every enlightening influence debar red by law.had reduced him oeurly to -or at le'ist prevented him from rising far from iemi-savagery. In tho later days of slavery, especially, it was the studied purpose of the law makers to remoro every possible chance of education. They sought to prevent all elevation, to continue them in their lowest ignorance und to stamp out all aspirations for bet ter things. How well they succeeded needs.no demonstration. With slavery the cause of the war, though the suppression of the rebellion alone was its object, this poor people found the awful storma centered about them. Slavery wbb destroyed, and the dominant class found themselves corn-" pelled to preserve by intimidation the position that bad been given ajd pre served lo them by law. It might have been d liferent had the North understood better the temper of tho South, or had the Soul., not given way to such tierce feelings of anger ngninsi the freedmen. But events hurried on till the Negro was given the right of buffrage. This act intensified the feelings and the unequal contest between the races begun and has continued ever since. The govern ment gave him the nominal right to citizenship, but has never succeeded in protecting him in its exercise. It gave him the right of suffrage, expecting tt to enable him to protect himself. It has not done so. It could not, on nc count of the natures and the long train ing of the two races. The plantation negro was never lit for the suffrage. It It was given him to save him from de structionas a lesser evil. It has in stead bred infinitely greater evils. He lives Stoday under greater burdens than hlavery and enjoys none or the benefits which went with it. He is to day, as forty years ago, a "hewer of wood and drawer of water" for the white man and dares not attempt to be more. Any such attempt is fraught with greater danger now than then. Then his life represented dollars and cents. Now it is worthless. It is the fashion here to pay that a "nigger is all right if ho keeps his place." What that "place" is, the white man has always said and still says. His place is that of h beast who must bear the white man's burden bear it meekly and uncomplainingly. He must never imagine that the declaration that "all men lire created free and equal" refers to him. He must uever claim the in alienable rights of "lire, liberty nnd the pursuit of happiness." If they are his at all, it is by grace and not as of right, and he must petition for them humbly; not demand them ns man of man. He must fully understand that he is of a lower order of creation than we. The discipline that he must abide all his days is very like the couimou concep tion of the'disciplino of the private soldier-not tho true, but tho cummon, the false conception. He is a dog that we may kick, nnd strike again if he howls. We are czars and he must not dare to dispute our sovereignty. If he does, Yellow Jaiimliee Curetl. Suffering humanity should be sup plied with every means possible for its relief. It is with pleasure we publish the following: "This is to certify that I was a terrible sufferer from Yellow Jundice for over six months, nnd was treated by Fome of tho best physicians in our city and all to no avail.

Not but there are Ne groes in the state who possess the prop. eity qualifications und are able to con strue the constitution as oontemplaled by law rightly administered; but no one supposes that the law whs intended to be rightly administered. It was intend ed to enable the white judge of election to dettroy the Negro's vote as effectually as it was before done with the shotgun nnd much more smoothly. Vet, not withstanding the removal, in this way. of the bug bear of Negro domination, we are treated to such exhibitions of malignant hatred of a downtrodden and helpless people as the late election riots in this state. This was the only election topic in which the citizens here teemed to take the slightest interest. There was no argument no open, fearless meeting of political parties to discuss the issues to be deoided at the election. They, as a class, have no political creed save op position to Is'e-gro advancement. I lned to find out what some of them thought abjut the silver question. Some went on to assure tne that a "national" Re publican could live here with safety und nrgue his theories if he didn't go to "encouraging the niggers." This whs the day after the election nnd the cowardly assassination of the Talbot and others. I hud inquired fur news of the election. In response to my inquiry they told me of this. I had become sick aud tired of hearing o much tha centered around this hateful, blighting feud and pressed them for news rela ting to results affecting national politics. They were able to enlighten me as to the probable results in North Cirohna, where they are still in the shotgun stage. I was informed that "the whites had probably won there." Thus it is. The "Negro question" overshadows everything else. The fight is ever on. There aro always some poor wretches, whose ambition for b-tter things overrides their prudeoee, ready to fun the smoldermg embers into a flama. A few, whose abilities in a better field would bear good friwt, who must be watched and repressed if nught of in dependence appears in their actions; and there are some, eoo, who brave the dangers far the sake of Uvo notoriety. These must all be kept "in their plaoe." No one in the South ever seems tooon elder it as a remote possibility thut a Neiiro may be able to distinguish him self above his white assooiate. If one is known or suspected to entertain the thought that he could do bo if given the opportunity, he is forthwith booked as a dangerous und designing "Nigger" who "don't know his place." He is shown it presently. An "educated ntager" ma pest to be suppressed or xterminated. I don't see how a Negro here, posesed of the faintest spark of manhood, could fail to develop into one species of whnt is known here as a "bad nigger," if he were educated. If he could 6ubmit tamely to the oonditions that hang like a mill stone about his neck ho would deserve to have his neck wrung. 1 would not be reckless enough, how ever, to ndrise him to attempt nny violent or speedy reformation.This would hardly be the thing for two reasons. First, he wouldn't lust long enough to get matters settled. Second, the re mainder of his race are not in n condi tion to profit by a great revolu tion. A local paper, in an editorial on the Talbot massacre, took the position of one who would rejoice in his inmost heart at any improvement in the con dition of the colored rnce. As such a friend, all the advice the editor could give them was, that if they valued their lives they should lie quiet under the lash of public sentiment. That hs they have no rights that are sacred in tbe eye of the dominant race, rather than stir up to fiercer flames the tire of devilish tatred that sometimes smolders, they should submit servilely to such viola tions of their rights as may be visited upon them. He said, "The Negroes know too well that they are helpless. In every clash they must suffer defeat and each defeat entails bitterer persecution. Knowing this, why can they not Iearc the lesson it should teach? "Why nol take in silence what comes, 'though it be as gall and worm-wood,' hoping for a better day when their rights will be respected some time some where?" With a hopelessness that would touch a heart of stone, he appeals to them to "go -go somowhere any where," but not stay here in this place which is a hell to them, and will be, it seems, for ever. No one could read the editorial with out being convinced of the earnestness and sincerity ot the editor's desires for the betterment of the Negro's position. But he knows the deep-rooted hostility to Negro advancemert that exists in the minds of the dominant race, and he cannot hope for improvement. What are we come to, when this "army of freedom" is n protection against "de monstrations" of this poor people. I am not looking for a chance to take the Ngro up in my arms and carry him to a place of honor and plenty; but I would like to see him ahowed a reason able chance to redeem himself from his present low estate. Now am I not right, that in the straDge irony of the times the emancipation proclamation left the Negro in chains? Let's look at the other proposition that this'proclamation.broke the shackles from the white man s limbs, i hat tho white race of the South, which is whnt men mean when they speak of "the South," is freeing itself from the old inertia that has held them in bocdnga so long, is apparent even with our slirht acquaintance with them. That this inertia, this disinclination to enter into the spirit of progress that 6wept the North so rapidly into the wo ids fore front industrially, was a result, largely, of the institution of slavery, I need not argue. Long years have gone by year. of groaning and complaining but at last the South land is awakened to tne fact that enterprise can cross its borders Energy is developing and is discovered to be not wholly n curse in its necessity. The new enterprises of the South are largely controlled by Northern men and money. This is notably the case as to the cotton mills that are springing up all over the cotten belt. Still they vivify and stimulate tbo country in which they are located. The Northern monopoly of manufactiuing interests may ere long be sadly taxed, It will surely be in some lines. That the industries of the South may be diversified is devoutly to be honed. Who knows what may result if this may be. The reason for the old geopraphioal line dividing tho political parties will be gone, and with the reason, doubtless the fact. If the spirit of strife and com petition that characterizes the North is transplanted here, it, must bear with it the political freedom, in a measure at least. May not this new condition, when it comes, begin the solution of the vexed Negro question.

The Supreme Court of Tennessee has just upheld tho anti-cigarette law of that state, and declares it constitutional in a short opinion, as follows: "It is contended that the anti-cigarette law is obnoxious to the commerce clause of the federal constitution, and, therefore, null and void. Tho Supreme Court holds that cigarettes are not legit imate articles of commerce; they are wholly obnoxious and deliterious to health, and that not legitimate articles of commerco they are not within tho provision of tho federal constitution re lied upon by Austin, and that theetate, therefore, had the right to prohibit their importation and sale in the exercise of its police power, as was done in the pass age of the law. The court holds also that the sale made in this case was not an original package in tho true commer- cial sense, for which additional reason the federal law has no application to this case. The judgment oi tne court below is affirmed.' The Christmas entertainment to be given by the Evangelical Sabbath school, of this city, on Christmas Eve. will bo free.

The Burlington is already one of the lic-st equipped railroads in the country, but it is continually adding improve ments. One of the "recent features in this line is something that is of particu lar interest to the people of this county and this section of the state. It is the intention the 1st of January to piaco in service between St. Joseph and Council Bluffs six of tholiticst passenger engines ever used in the west. Thev are the Rogers, Class M. and are of the highest pressure kind. They are capable of earning trains at a high rate of speed. The Burlington, as is known, has just completed the laying of heavier steel rails and the road-bed has liecn newly ballasted. The new ballast used is vitri fied gumlm. Large quantities of this has been burned near Bigelow, Phelps, Weston, and other points along the lino. This ballast ir superior to any other kind nnd makes the roadbed practically solid. These improvements will not on ly afford better scrvico to the traveling public but will lie felt by everybody, in the improvements of the mail service. The Burlington is wide awake to the re quirements of the people and will exert every endeavor to secure safety, com fort, tind convenience generally. We live in a country of which the princml scourge is stoxach-trouble. It is more wide-spread than any other disease, and. very nearly, more danger ous. One thing that makes it so danger ous is that it is so little understood. If it were better understood, it would ba more feared, more ensily cured, less universal than it is now. So, those who wish to be cured, take Shaker Digestive Cordial, because it goes to the root ot the trouble as no other medicine does. The pure, harm lesp, curative herbs and plants, ot which it is composed, are what render it so certain and, at the samo time, so gentle a cure. It helps and strengthens the stomach, purities and tones up they system. Sold by druggists, price 10 cents to S1.00 per bottle. Nodaway. --Miss Mary Fsbair, of St. Joseph, is visiting with T.
