The Government Printing Offlc
Honors Eight Colored Girls.
The total number of appointment!
made last week from the civil service
list of eligibles amounted to twenty, ol
which number eleven were colored. 01
tho fifteen appointments of skilled la
bor, eight were young colored women,
and of the five appointments of un
skilled labor, three were colored men.
The most interesting feature wastht
appointment of the colored girla.
These young ladies entered the exami
nation about a year ago for appoint
ment as printer's assistants in the Bu
reau of Engraving and Printing. They
passed said examination, but Jlr.
Johnson, who is the chief official at the
Bureau of Engraving and Printing, re
jected them after he found out thai
they were of African extraction.
The examination for places in tbt
Bureau also holds good for appoint
ment in the Government Printing Of
fice, and after a suspense of nearly 8
year these girls wore agreeably sur
prised by receiving appointments it
this office. The Publio Printer, Mr.
T. E. Benedict, was aware of the faci
of the rejection of these girls by Mr.
Johnson, but being broad-gauged and
possessing that liberal spirit for fail
play which few officials in high station
dare to show, he appointed them and
Rgain demonstrated the fact that color
is no bar to one's opportunity of earn
ing a livelihood in this office.
A committee of prominent citizens
waited upon Secretary Carlisle to re
quest him to inquire into the conduct
of Mr. Johnson, of tbe Bureau, con
cerning the rejection of these girls ami
accomplished but little more than re
ceiving an assurance that the matter
would be investigated.
We take pleasure in announcing the
fact that "negrophobia" does not re
main here. The race is well repre
sooted in this office, and has been as
signed more places of prominence un
der Mr. Benedict's administration than
under any previous one. Boston Cou'

He Is Not Dead, as Is Generally Sup
posed, Because of Ills Ilon-Appiar-ance
on the Road.
It ia generally supposed that "Blind
Tom" is dead, but be is not. lie is not
an old man yet, and it is a matter of
wonder that he has not been on the
road coining money for his guardians.
One of his old managers said, not long
ago, that the boy's musical brain ap
peared to be eutirely separate and dis
tinct from the poor little wit he pos
sessed in ordinary. He told of an hour
that ht spent it the wing", jne night,
at Tom's elbow. The colored boy was
performing one of bis most mnrvelous
feats, that of playing anelaboraloox
position which he had never heard i n
til that evening when a local musici n
went through it once. In these feats
of memory Tom always played what ho
bad heard exactly, to the least shading
of a note: and yet while be did this, he
talked to himself all the time upon some
perfectly irrelevant subject.
Indeed, this negro boy was almost
an idiot, and yet bis musical power wai
so marvelous that he could have repro
duced one of Paderewski's afternoon
with' more exactitude than the Pole
could do it- himself. He was one of the
lensations of his day. He played uVt
over the civilized world, and to every
body of prominence. He was a marvel
ous imitator with his voice as well asm
music and could repeat a speech made
in hi presence and never leave out an
Inflection. Munscy's Magazine.
It is not how high the office, tor
bow big tho salary, of the colored man,
but how he fits the office, and how well
ho can stand prosperity, that's going
to tell in his struggle for recognition.
Many of our race leaders are soo busy
solving their own problems to givo
that of the masses a thought.
All of that stuff about Negroes be
tng unmanageable and hard to govern
is out of fashion. The white man is n
strong witness to that when be puts
Dn his war paint and sallies forth to
bar the way of Negro rule. The Negro
has not said one word about rule, but
his steady move in the wake of wealth,
education and thrift is telling its own
tale and causing alarm. Wihninyton
It is hoped that the Negro will push
his claim in tiino with tho coming ad
ministration, so that shrewd politi
cians will rot tell him' that he is
rather late in the race, as Mr. Bo-and-5c
has already applir. This, has been
the "song and dance" for -some time,
but the Negro this year of jubilee will
be on the alert and take good care that
he is remembered after the race as well
as before. The Negro was certainly a
great worker in the recent right and
deserves much credit. There were a
few who wandered from the fold bnt
we did not miss them, as they are the
bartcrers of their own rights, and ex
pect to be sold to the highest bidder.
There are over a million of colored
voters in tho United States, and 99
per cent, of them vote the Republican
ticket; in fHCt, they constitute the con
stant and stcudiebt eU-ment of tbe par
ty. Other men change according to
issues, but the colored voter is a Re
publican at all times and nnder all cir
enmstances, and as General Grant
once remarked: ' He ia faithful in bis
allegiance to caneo even unto death."
WlU that faithfulness be reward d?

Even in time of intense political in
terest, preachers and congregations
should not bo exensed frum regarding
the Sabbath or keepiDg it holy. Such
was far from the case with tho pastor
ol a New York church, who recently
tamed bis services into a political
meeting nd delivered a campaign ad
dress to a McKiuley and Ilobart clnli.
Ono of our churches in the sanio neigh
borhood recently pave an ox roast witi

Antonio Maceo, tbe Negro general
in the Cuban war, is the only surviv
ing brother of eleven who have been
killed in endeavoring to liberate Cuba
from Spain. One day the Spanish
have him and next he is gone. He is
as brave as a lion and Spain would
gladly give $100,000 to get rid of the
Maceo. who has caused the world to
stand and wonder at the son of Ham.
Characteristic of all brave men he is
tender and merciful. ; Though the
Spanish are daily slaughtering and
butchering and committing heinous
outrages upon innocent Cuban women
and children, is no incentive for such a
vengeance by this heroic leader. Dur
ing the whole of these two . years of
bloody war not cne act of cruelty has
been laid to him. Victoria Guide.
Tho Rev. Sam. P. Jones whose mud
slinging has brought him more noto
riety than has his preaching, is out in
a letter on "The Negro Race." The
Rev, Jones and men like him who can
see very little of good in the Negroes
are responsible for the Negroes being
in the penitentiary and drinking liquor.
They drank liquor and stole the poor
Negroes' earnings and now cuss the
Negroes out for having taken on some
of their mean habits. Sam was once a
drunkard, bnt has reformed that is
he does not get drnnk publicly any
more; bnt the greatest reformation he
needs is reformation of the heart.
Race pride is beginning to be the
talk of every colored man and woman
wherever. a few of them meet together;
it is an evidence of a closer nnion
among themselves; it is Christian-like,
it is God-like, it is loving our brother
as ourselves; it is showing to the dif
ferent races around and among ns that,
we have .the spirit and manhood of
race, pride and ' race developement.
We are now learning that to help and
patronize the different business of any

the only way ty help each other.

If there Is any reason why you should uss
any sarsaparilla, there every reason why you
should use Ayer's. When you take sarsaparilla
you take it to cure disease ; you want to be cured
as quickly as possible and as cheaply as possible.
That is why you should use Ayer's: it cures
quickly and cheaply--and it cures to stay. Many
people write us : "I would sooner have one bottle
of Ayer's Sarsaparilla than three of any other
kind." A druggist writes that "one bottle of
