h'almethitig about-who sallbI represent
tis section in the Cabinet. If the e
publicans suppress in the latter, they
wtust expect cihere to profit by the
exiample.
It is perfectly logical in all this, and
the sooner it teaches colored voters to
go with those who can best help them,
the better it will be for then.
This is the way the Radicals treat
"niegro" preaumption after they have
secured his vote.
"Brain" is the standard by v hich all
the selections should be nade and
doubtless will be; the selection of a
man because of his color or nationality
is not lepublican, it is un-Americal.
If the colored eitizens are not repre
sented in the Cabinet by one of their
own race, it is to be hoped that the)
will not fool that thev are not repre
Sentoied at all. Thu )epublican party
has long since plcdgcd itself to the
millions its bayonets made free, and
their needs will be considered at all
times. The selection of a Cabinet
without a colored member will mean
no disrespect or danger to the race. It
will simply niean that a better man has
beci founil, one more fitted to the
work at his hand, than would be either
of the men01 chosen by the colored pt!o
ple, and in this selection, which will
be tr the good of the whole people,
none will more quickly conenr, we be
lieve, thanm the intelligent, Portion of
the colored race.
The Augusta Chronicle sagely com
ments upon the above, and says: "This
is a clear intimation that no colored
man is to be appointed to a Cabinet
position, because the colored voters
have no representatives "fitted to the
work." This is a startling declaration
i the face of the constant asservera
tions of the Republican press that there
are numbers of colored mnein who are
''fitted to the work" of Governors,
Leg-ilators and Judges of Southern
states. If they are fitted for the one
they are litted for the other, aid no
amoumt of crawfilshing will make the
country believe the contrary."
