The representatives of. the colored race
throughout the city , to the extent of twenty-
flvo , mot la the pollca court chamber last
night for lha purpose of organizing n. colored
republican Icaguo. The mooting was called
to order by P. J. Williams. The temporary
organization was affected with Dr. M. O.
HictcotU as chairman , F. L. Uarnott was
E. H. Overall addressed the meeting on
the purposes Tor which the organization was
brought about. "This ts n move , " ho said ,
"for th'o purpose of vindicating the pro
visions of the constitution. If this bo the
medium of bringing attout a reform In our
laws , and 1 think that It ts , 1 run ono of its
most hearty supporters. And , in spanking- ,
let mo rofnr to nn action that blots the fair

ago an individual was appointed to n

this government , and , because African blood
coursed through his veins , ho was basely
subject od to Insults such us no partv , no
race , should countenanco. This has boon
pasted over ns n mere coincidence , and if
no body of men representing our race takes
up this issue , this organization should con
sider it nn imperative duty , mid urge
thut fair treatment bo given the colored man
ns prescribed in our laws. Wo meet
hero to-night to foster our cause , and by
working in harmony wo may bo ublo to help
each other In more tluin ono way , and let us
consider that a uonellt to ono is a benefit to
Price Saunders dilated to omo extent on
the colored man in politics. Ho stated that ,
while ho had been u life-long republican , ho
had arrived at the conclusion that the col
ored mnn should adhere to party lined
only so far ns his own conscicnco dictated ,
Independent elements , in his opinion , were
instrumental In accomplishing a great many
tilings. The republican party , ho said , had
done u great deal for the negro , and its party
principles merits consideration by every col-
ore tt voter.
A. H. Willis took up the condition of the
colored voter la the south. Ho said :
"Wo Imvo n broad question to
consider in our own behalf. The con
stitution of the United States requires
three-fourths of the states to pass upon
amendments to that document. Wo should
nrgo upon congress to remedy this system.
With the solid south arrayca against us , it is
impossible to procure the required threo-
fonrths , and the ravages and bloodshed of
the south will go on. "
Alfred Uarnott believed that reformation
should be lirst brought about at homo. Ho
said : "Wo have a civil rights law in
Nebraska , but it is inoperative. The
negro is not free in every sense of the wo d.
A colored man gumginto atonsorlnl establish
ment conducted by a white mnn is informed
that 'no black soap' is available. Is this
freedom ? Is this an equality of rights ? 1
nm in favor of Ignoring party lines , and or
ganizing us a protective body. "
Ctiairuinn Htckotts discussed the situation
of the colored race at some length. Ho
stated that further legislation was not the
issue. That the move to bo made wus the
enforcement of the law already created. "I
am opposed to color being made a distinction
among men , " he said , "as It 13 the workings
of tlio Almighty that causes this distinction
to exist. Is it fairl Iot mo toll you that
we liavo respectable wives and daughters
among us that are not accorded privilecos
that are extended dissolute women. OOQ
forbid that such matters go on.
Let us organise in our own powers ,
and do what wo can to wipe out this distinc
tion. Cast your ballots so that their influ
ence will bo concentrated on this movement ,
and in this way the time will come when
color will not bar your wife or my wife , your
children or my children , yoursalt or myself ,

To the Editor of THIS UEB : Did the last

swear at the primary what ticket ho voted
last November ?
Who has the appointment of judges nnd

Did the republican control committee make
any rules governing the primaries ?
A voter at the primaries is not required to
swear what ticket ho voted nt the last elec

of the usual form and make record of nil
answers to questions propounded. They may
require the voter to provn that ho has
amiintod with tho' party for a year. They
huvo discretionary power to accept or reject
votes , if the answers nro not satisfactory.
The appointment of Judges and clerks of pri
mary elections is vested in the respective
party committees , and they can adopt addi
tional rules nnd regulations for the govern
ment of the primaries. Such regulations
must be in harmony with the law , which was
designed to prevent fraudulent voting and
limit balloting to members of the party by
whom the primary is called. Polls must bo
open from 13 in , till T o. in.

THE PRISONER OF FORTON.
ATnloof the Revolutionary War by
Kl\vurd ( tjvorctt llulc.
Those of you who liavo hnd fjrantl-
fnthura or urcal-graiidfathers who were
talcon prisoners of war when they were
cruisinp in American privateers have
hoard , I do not doubt , of the prison ol
Norton in England , saya a writer in the
Sunny Hour. It was in tins prison that
the American prisoners UUcon at HCU
were kept. And ti very hard time they
had of it until Franklin was at last able
to arrange that they should bo ex
changed for prisoners taken by Jones
and others from English ships.
Ono of the prisoners of Iforton , who
remained there eighteen months or
moro , wtis Captain Loo. of Marblohcad.
The privateers of Salem , Marbleheiul
and Beverly were the terror of all
Englishmen who sailed upon the seas ;
but in BOIUO udvflnturo , which I need
not toll here , Captain Leo , of Marble-
head , waa overmatched , and so had
boon carried into England with his
crow and was imprisoned at Forton.
Exchanges were not then easy , for the
English govern meat had not at first de
cided on its course about exchanges.
Ono day , after poor Captain Leo had
lingered there mnro than a year and a
half , ho was called to the door and told
that a gentleman wished to see him.
This gentleman provoil to ho a man of
military air , who toolc Captain Lee into
a corner and pressed into his hand , pri
vately , a purse , which proved to contain
seventy-five guineas. With equal
privacy ho said to him that with a nart
of the money ho must buy , before
night , from some of the attendants , the
dress of ono of thop'rison workmenand
that when the relief came around , ho
must ho in an out-of-the-way place _ ,
where lip could fall in with the relief in
the twilight and pass outdido the prison
proper unobserved. ' 'But to go out of
the whole inclosurc , " Btiid his friend ,
"you will nocd to know the counter
sign. " And so ho whisporeu to him the
countersign of the day. Captain Leo
nskod who it was to whom ho was in
debted , but the at ran cor would not toll
All fell nut just as this good fairy had
said. Some loafer among the workmen
was not proof to the temptation of a few
bright guineas , nnd as night caino on
Captain Lee clothed himself in the suit
of clothes which ho had bought. Ho
fell in with the relief and no ono ob
served him. Ho came to ono and
another sentinel who challenged him ,
and ho ' 'approached and gave the
counteraignl" Ho passed out into tlio
dark town , and there ho was puzzled
about the btroot , when ho mot again his
friend of the morning. This gentleman
congratulated him on his liberty , put
him into a carriage which was in wait
ing and sent him to a seaport , whence
ho could take passage for Franco.
The whole experience was ns great a
wonder to Captain Leo as if the stran
ger had been nn angel sent from heaven ,
as in a certain BOIISO ho was. Hcavon
is very apt to send as its messengers the
persons who have boon moved by kind
ness done to thorn.
It proved afterward that the myster
ious B trim got- was no loss a person than
General Hurgoyno. Ho also had been
a prisoner of war. While ho was at
Cambridge , in Massauhubotts , ho had
boon under the immediate rhargo of
Colonel Lee , who was Captain LOO'B
brother. When Burgoyno was ox-
ohnnfrod ho had promised Colonel Lee ,
for whoso kindness to him ho was grate
ful , that , ho would render any service in
his power to the prisoner at Forton.
Colonel Leo had intrusted to him the
Hovontv-avd guineas which ho had de
livered to Captain Lee , nnd it was ho
who had whispered tlio valuable coun
tersign to him.

E , L. Dlunchnrdtho English dramat
ist , whoso death has just boon recorded ,
was borne eight years ago at the Arun-
del club , when an old friend observed
to him : "Blanchard , I urn seventy to
day , and am now able to toll you , as u
linn admirer of David Garrick , a story
associated with my birtliday. When I
was a llttlo hid , six or seven years old ,
I was playing with my hoop on Adolphi
ton-ice , whore yon now live , when I ran
against a very old lady , who wus totter
ing along on a stick. I was bogging her
pardon , when she said , 'Llttlo hey , did
you oyor hoar of David GurrickV' 1 re
plied in the negative , and she wont on :
'Ho was England's great actor and my
husband , and the friend of Dr. .loiihon
and the illustrious Mr. Bunco. You
will hear of him in the future , nnd if ,
when you ranch seventy instead of
seven , you moot any ono who remem
bers him with rosnoet , give to him from
mo , as I now give you , the blessing of
the widow of Davla Garriok.1 And , "
continued the friend , "that day having
now como , I pa a , Blnnohurd , the hand
shake and blessing to you. " It was with
considerable dramatic point that this
story was told , for the study In which it
was narrated had oncohoon occupied by
Garrick himself , and his death-mask
was a prominent object in it ; and to
lovers of Htoruturo it will seem strange
that there was living in London only
yesterday ono who was removed l > y a

Boswoll attests , hud moro than once en
tertained Jensen and liurko ut the board

One of the remarkable features of the
exposition your in P.iris has been the
scourge of ileus , which have taken un
compromising possession of all stran
gers arriving -from parts of the world
where the liens are not BO previous ,
enys the EJnris Register. No Parisian
can over bo got to admit that the Ileus
are born horo. They come from Puy-
do-Dotne , from Boissyles-Vachos , or be
brought here by the Arabs and Algorl-
ians at the exposition , but the fact that
public vehicles and hotels swarm with
them , is inconceivable to him. In the
United States "tho wicked Hen when no

a writhing human victim.
