THAT CAMPAIGir BOODLE.
The people of this conotj are yet
ffiuoh coDcerncd abput the taany rn-
mors of money sent to this coonty for
oampaigD parposcs. The use of moOcy
in campsigDS by political parties is
held by all sides to be legitimate, for
all parties ose money, but tbe ques
tion here is: bow much oamc to this
connty. who got it and for shot sas
Wo do not accuse any one of get
ting money, wc arc not one of tbe
promised and disappointed parties.
We ore not capecting a dollar. Our
reward will oomo in due time Wc
speak for tbe good name of tbe party.
It is claimed (bat bills arc standing
against tbe party and tbe ryiutatioo
of llic party in the county is being in
jured. luDoccnl men arc suspected
aud tbe truth of tbe matter should be
let out and the just claims against
tbe parly ought to be settled.
We intend to help tbe democrats
agitstc the matter until wc arc oou-
visced that nothing can bo accom
plished. But if wc learn of any
crookedness in handling money hero
by onr leaders, they shall bare the
benefit of onr efforts to relegate tbi
to the rear. Six men here arc si
pcoted of iccciring or knowing of
money coming here to pay legitimate
expenses. All of them way be inno
cent. If so it should bo known
Some of them will expect appoiotioent
under the incoming administration.
If a man will not manage and ad
minister a sm^l fund for a party, be
certainly is unfit to hold a public office.
If another, knowing of the nu.-appro-
priation, receives or refuses to receive
any part of it. yet keeps it concealed,
is guilty and unworthy tbo confidence
of his parly. A man who conceals
stolen property is guilty by thi
oratio party ia iaeapable and unquali
fied (0 manage and eontrol the finaa-
oial and poUtioal deetlny of tb|i
eotttthry. This is er^g mneh, but
it’s tiic people’s rerdict, and a
righteous Tordiot. We must feel
deeply oononmed at tbe results of
Tuesday’s election. Tbe whole coun
try foelait, and a deep sigh of relief
from democratie misrule is breathed
from tho Atlantic to the Paoifie ocean
and from the lakes to tbe gulf.
Proud and glorious America I (air
women and brave men—true hearts
and souls resolved, hearts as true
steel and steady and unerring as t
it's course—these for country,
Ood sod truth. It is hoped now that
the political excitement is over that
tbe country will settle down to busi
ness. Our people should lay aside
ie political tomahawk for a while
and resume the work of building up
our material and pecuniary resources,
educate our children, acquire more
property and hotter fit ourselves for
tbe duties and lespoDsibilities of oiti-
acnebip. Tho National government
after the 4th of March will be turned
over to a republican president, and
will be in safe bands for tho next four
years. I suppose tho first work of
patriotic chief magistrate after
having been iiidncted into office, and
clotbiug himself with tbe robes of
State will be to “Turn tho roscal.s
out.” Wishing the Messenger eon-
tinued success and a big tnrkcy on
thanksgiving day for the editor, I am,

Mrs, M. C. Pbrrv,
Pcatb has cut down an opening bud ;
ere it could fully bloom his withering
blast swept over ii, and it was gone.
It was a fair and delicate plant, and
it was hoped that the attempt to trans
plant it from .American to African soil
would succeed, and that it would take
firm root, but al.is '■ This hope was

her husband and the voice of her
darling infant would call heraffeotiona

to see bor reenperatod before the
arrival of the vessel. Sbe saw
this kind offer an opportunity for

and accordingly accepted the offer, and
was removed. She spoke to her nurse
of the near approach of death; when
the messenger came in tbe darkness of

awaited tho iDerilable. So at sunrise
on Tuesday, September 11, 1888,
without a groan, without a sigh, her
sp^it left its tenement of clay, and on
-inga of faith mounted to the realms
of pure delight. Thus closed a noble
life, and ended a mission before it
had fairly begun. Yet verily she
shall bare her reward. Although

Monrovia, Sept. 17th, 1888.
The Cabinet makers should not
build all their structurca. from North
ern limber. President Harrison will
not be a sectional President. There
is no reason why Oliver H. Dockery,
of North Carolina, should not bo con
sidered. He is a Bcpublican, and is
descended from one of the old Whig
families of the old Whig State a
protectionist by belief and descent.

LOOKING FOR BOODLE.
Tbe Chronicle of last Sunday aski
were we looking for boodle on election
ffay. For the gratification of that
gentloman wc will say, wc were not.
Wc were looking for voters and try
ing to SCO that they got their votes in.
While wc spent the greater part of the
day at our voting place, we went fre
quently to tbo diff^erent voting places
in the city and saw who was at work.
We were not for sale and Lad better
sense than look for money from onr
own party on olection day.
We arc different from tbe editor of
the Chronicle. Wo are a voter; wc
run our own paper os a matter of busi-
nest; wc were not hired by dcino-
oratic nor republican campaign boodle;
we are at borne and dare tell onr own
party of iti faults as soon as anybody
else. We “know those m
not be seen on election day” becanse
we were often at the places they ought
to have boon and asked after them.
They were inquired for becauso they
should have been at the polls or some
place giving assistance to tbo party

A good record for tbo colored troops

more than one-tenth of our whole
