A two Greo backers. At the court House last night a Greenback meeting was held. About Twenty a followers of the Faith a including two of the original big four and a goodly crowd of republicans and democrats made a fair audience. When a Tribune reporter entered the court House Hiram g. Leonard of Logansport was talking. It will be remembered that this gentlemen at tended the Greenback congressional convention held Here in 1s78, at which time the Tribune gave a vivid pen picture of him in personal appearance Leonard is now much the same As in 1878, except that his 1817 suit has been discarded and he now wears one of modern style. He is better looking than he was two years ago he still talks Mushy and wears tears in his eyes. He spoke for about two hours and the Only thing interesting in the surroundings was to watch the people get up and walk out As they awakened from their slumber and happened to think a where they what he started out to say he forgot. His talk was All preface and there was no conclusion. He has Learned very Little since 1878 or la he knows anything new he neglected to Tell it. We Hope he May thoroughly canvass the county. If he will make speeches at every school House in Howard county during the summer there wont be a grease spot of the Greenback party left the meeting was announced for Stude Baker Greenback candidate for Congress. He was present and took a Nap while Leonard spoke. Studebaker did t have a fair Deal. When Leonard had finished he introduced or. S. In a highly Eulogi Stic manner but the latter was too sleepy to Well. He spoke for about an hour with his voice pitched at upper c. Weaver was the Burden of his song and he announced that Jesse Harper will address our people next month and exhorted All to attend. We doubt if enough persons can be collected together to hold a meeting. This first Greenback a a Boom has rather dampened the cause. He now threaten to Holt the Republican nominees Filles his unions friends Are promoted to office. Editorial to our t Orre i a ii debit. Reported for the Tri hunk. Our coloured people.

Elder Burden preached a very feeling Sermon on Las Sabbath evening at the Church. We think the elder is improving rapidly. What will Kokomo do Frankfort . The Kokomo saturday Tribune strongly urges the voting of the tax by the citizens of Kokomo and Howard county tor the building of the Toledo amp St. Louis a r line Railroad. Kokomo seems slow to contribute anything to tilts Enterprise but ii she to secure the Road and allows it to run South of the Eirv. She will make a most vital and rueful mistake. That the line will be built there is but Little question whether Kokomo gets it or not. The Indianapolis Cut in 7. Upton to nits and Wabash Conner have come to Scot Armstrong a defense. The Marion Democrat and other to 11-parrots so called by Kernan Are yet to hear rom. To the to tors of the to Luttio the action of the Republican party against recognizing the coloured people not Only of Kokomo and Howard county but of the whole state in refusing to elect or appoint them to office when we have presented to the party those whom we knew to be Good and honorable men is an outrage which can not be too severely condemned. It is an insult to the intelligence of the coloured people for the Zeal and Fidelity with which they have stood by the party. The bitterest opponents of the Republican party have been afraid that the republicans would Piave the Good sense to give the col ored people some substantial recognition. Subsequent events however prove their fears to be groundless. Now our complaint is not so much on account of the rejection of the few men our people have presented for office in Howard county As it Jis against the policy that the party holds i nth that there is a prejudice yet in tile party that has to be outlived before we can arrive at that period in our lives that we As a people and As american citizens can enjoy the same privileges that republicanism claims that All her citizens should enjoy. The Republican party looks and depends upon the coloured vote for its existence and continuation in Power. We have in Indiana to Day 10,000 coloured voters and have Ever voted since we Hail the Chance for our Republican White friends for we have always believed them to be our friends yet those friends say by their acts they cannot recognize us by voting for us. Why ? just because god when he created us saw tit to make our skin a Little Darker than our White Republican friends although he pronounced All things that he created Good yet our Republican friends deny the assertion and say god was mistaken and that we Are bad before they can reprimand the democratic party saying that they Are the party that despise the coloured people and hold prejudice against the race they had better read that passage of scripture which says a first get the beam out of your own eyes before you try to get the Mote out of your brother a we believe the time has come that the Republican party should have their eyes open to their Best interest. The coloured people Are not ignorant of these fads. Let us be understood. We Are not drawing the color line. On the contrary we Are fighting and shall continue to fight for its obliteration. We protest with All tile Energy of our souls against the policy that makes the color of a Many a skin a bar to his advancement. We claim that official recognition of worthy and competent coloured men is a Benefit and a Blessing not Only to the coloured race but to the White race As Well. We Appeal to the White men of Howard county Yea of Indiana irrespective of party that hold such prejudice against the coloured Man if they Are not by an unjust system of discrimination planting the seed of a dangerous policy which it May provoke and procure its own destruction a a policy which will drag Down in the Wake of its own ruin those whose ignorance or prejudice and inhumanity or both combined Are responsible tor its existence. Our schools Are doing a great work in the matter of training our youth. The coloured boy goes hand in hand with the White boy through the different branches of education. There they study the biographies of great and Noble men. There they learn of Homer Virgil Horace and Shakespeare. They see men leap from obscurity to Fame. For the last time those boys Cross the threshold of the school room and enter the Arena called life. The White boy goes to a Bank with Bright prospects before him enters a store As a clerk with the probability of being admitted to a partnership to the professions with the highest prospects in View. The coloured boy goes per necessity in most a Barber shop the Kitchen and dining rooms of hotels to a menial position from which through a weary life he finds it next to an impossibility to extricate himself. Now messes. Editors the picture is not overdrawn. Go from the state House to the outside grocery and scarcely a coloured Man will be found occupying any but the position of a menial. The coloured people look to the Republican Datty for Protection tor recognition. For encouragement. When they ask for bread tile party should not give them a Stone. A a coloured Republican. Editorial reply. For a Square argument in favor of drawing a color line the above is the Best that has Ever been presented to us. The writer instead of making a plea tor recognition As an american citizen upon Merit and manhood makes it upon the simple plea that he is a coloured Man. This is demagogy very in its worst form. Because a Man has a Black skin it does not follow j that on this account lie should be Given More fights than Ain other citizen. Merit will always win. Whether it be hidden under a Black or White skin and our correspondent must recognize this fact. Just As Long As the coloured Man demands recognition on account of his color just that Long will that prejudice which he talks so much about exist. But when he ceases to demand on account of color what he would not think of demanding on any other plea and risks his Chance on Merit then and not until then will those claims be considered. When a coloured Man enters the political Arena As a candidate far position his chances for Success All qualifications considered Are the same As any other aspirant and if he is Defeated he i is worse than a fool if he assigns the cause of his defeat to the fact that his skin is Black. A coloured Man has no right to ask office at tile hands of the Republican party simply because he votes the Republican ticket or because he is Black. He must stand on Merit just the same As any other candidate. In this City the democratic party placed two coloured no n in position not because they merited the place nor because the democracy loved them but Only for the reason that they were coloured men and by giving them place the democrats expect to catch a part of the a Nigger every citizen of Kokomo knows this to be True. At the april election last there was cast in this township 1,178 votes for township trustee. Included in this number Are 40 coloured voters 68 Irish voters and 41 German voters and yet we have heard no kicking or squealing upon the part of these Irish or German voters for recognition. They seem w Illing to submit their claims to the people upon Merit and not upon the fa6t that they Are irishmen or germans. The trouble with our correspondent is that he is too susceptible to flattery in his eagerness to Pat the democracy upon the Back for giving his a co lord position he forgets that that party has always been his uncompromising and bitter enemy. He forgets that in the palmy Days of slavery the Man who lashed his Back with a whip until the flesh was torn to shreds was a Democrat. He forgets that the monster who Tore his babe from its mothers breast and sold it As he would a dog was a Democrat. He forgets that the brutes who slaughtered his people so mercilessly at fort Pillow were democrats. He forgets that those persons who put a clause in the Constitution of Indiana that no negro or mulatto should be allowed to Settle or come into the state and who resisted the striking out of that clause in isso were democrats. He forgets that the men who now Fawn around him belong to the same party that did everything in their powder to prevent the ratification of the amendment which gave him citizenship and that since the adoption of that amendment have hounded bulldozed and murdered his race Only because they were coloured. We say therefore in his eagerness to accept this Little bit of a official papa he forgets All these things and turns to threaten those who have always been and Are yet his Best friends. We say very frankly to our correspondent that it is just such communications As his and just such argument As he presents that keeps up the question of the color line. In this state every Man regardless of color is recognized by the Constitution As a citizen and this rating about recognition because of color stimulates a few demagogues to keep harping about the coloured Many a wrongs. We ask our correspondent to read carefully the history of political affairs in this country and he will then learn that every right he now possesses was Given him by the re pub Jean party and that All of them were always opposed by the democratic party. Kokomo As a Grain Market. I he following figures need very Little comment we give below a statement of the prices paid Lor wheat at Kokomo and Frankfort on the tues Nam d saturday Kokomo.

May i is i ?1 if 5 0 it to Mac i Oigt i i is s it Milfs May i a i i i Lolo 0 e i m a y 2 j i i i is s a but now what is the reason that our local Grain merchants cannot pay the same prices for wheat that Are paid at Frankfort simply because we have no direct Railroad outlet to tile lakes and the Eastern markets. The proposed up Louis in Toledo air line r. R. Will give Kokomo the same advantages possessed by Peru Logansport or Frankfort. The Farmers cd Tenter township vote against their own interests when they vote against the Railroad tax next wednesday. It is not our purpose to make an exhibit of Kokomos Grain Market for a single month Only. There might be some other excuse offered by our Grain men for a variation of prices in thirty Days but when it conies to months and years at a stretch there can be no reason Given except that freights Are higher from this Point than from neighbouring towns. Our Grain merchants Are not to blame for this fact. Our last crop of wheat was simply immense As All will remember and what a Bonanza our Farmers might have had will be shown by the following table. For months right after Harvest when wheat was rolling in by the thousands of bushels we find the same old differences in prices Between Kokomo and our neighbouring cities having direct communication with Lake f Rie sat inlay Kokomo.

Who i i i of s cents a Shower of fish. On last thursday week when the heavy rain storm passed Over this county the family of or. S. Carpenter who resides four Miles Southwest from this City were treated to a Shower of fish. Some of the fish were five and six inches Long but the majority were much smaller. Or. Carpenter gathered up a number of tin in and brought the same to this City leaving them at the drug store of Kern to son. Where they have been on exhibition since. The Tribune is the Only truthful paper. Fairmount sen. Flach one of the three newspapers of Kokomo claims to have a larger circulation than All the local papers combined. But they must All Tell the truth for since the City was captured by the democracy we have concluded there is nothing impossible with Kokomo. Difference in favor of Kokomo. The following affidavit explains itself state of in in Ana Clinton county is David f. Alien being duly sworn says that the above statement of prices paid at Frankfort is True in every respect. Signed David f. Allen proprietor elevator subscribed and sworn to before me this 32d Day of May i so. Joseph Claybaugh Skal. Notary Public. Figures done to lie. As to those quoted for Kokomo we have referred to the Tribune a files for the past few months the Market reports having been made up from the bulletin boards displayed by our local Grain dealers for the truth of which any Farmer May find proof by comparing the dates Given above with his memorandum made at the time he sold his wheat. Look at the above figures carefully and make up your mind to vote for the Railroad appropriation. The amount you Reader will have to pay individually will be refunded to you when you haul your first crop to Kokomo after the new Road shall have been built. The above tabular statement of figures appeared in this weeks dispatch. With the dates from nov. 1 1879 to May i isso omitted. We give the prices paid at both Frankfort and Kokomo every saturday from july 1st, of last year up to May 22, 18s0. It should be remembered that the bulk of pie last crop of wheat was handled before Jan 1 St of this year but we Are pleased to see that irom the Middle of january for a month or More when mud was Axle deep and it was next to impossible for a Man to get into town on horseback that Kokomo did pay f Frankfort prices and for two weeks did actually pay five cents More than j Frankfort dealers. The Tribune is proud of this two weeks record Ai d Hopes when the new Railroad Shad be built we can add fifty More weeks just like it to every year. Inasmuch As we have quoted no Corn prices the Gram dealers May claim that they have paid More for Corn in Kokomo than at Frankfort. We regret that it is no late we cannot make a comparative statement on Corn but can Only quote this weeks prices at Kokomo our dealers quoted 30 cents per Bushel while at f Frankfort 33 cents has been paid. Elder j. L Parsons. Tile new pastor of the Christian Church folder j. L Parsons preached his initial discourse on last Munday morning. His theme was a a the work we Are called to do a and set Forth his intentions As regular pastor of the Church and advising the members As to the Best Means of encouraging and aiding the religious work. His text was from i corinthians 15th chapter and 5-Sih verse. The discourse was full of Good wholesome advice and the closest attention was Given to the elder to the end. We believe that the Christian Church will find in folder Parsons a most effective worker and a faithful pastor. His manners Are pleasing and he has Given the very Best satisfaction thus far in several discourses he has preached Here by appointment one of them being recently Given in full in the tribunes columns which was a most eloquent and entertaining Effort. A last year the wheat crop o Howard county amounted to about 500,000 bushels. Supposing that All his Grain was sold in Kokomo the prices paid in this Market for the past year have been from five to eight cents lower than at Frankfort or Peru. Five cents is a fair average upon which to calculate. So our Farmers have lost a sum aggregating 525,goo. Now Why was this so simply be cause As our Grain merchants will Tell you they cannot get As cheap rates of freight out of Kokomo As tile dealers at Peru or Frankfort can. Now with this View of the Case we cannot see Why any one who has the interest of Howard county at stake and surely we All have the mighty Dollar in View can oppose the building of a new Railroad that will enable us to get the same cheap rates of freight that neighbouring cities have. The Toledo St St. Louis air line Road will give us a direct outlet to the lakes and we will have the Benefit of the lowest freight rates. The new Road will be a competing line with tile Wabash and Lake Erie and Western lines indeed it will be an Active competitor of both. The result will be a Boom in the prices paid at Kokomo for Grain. Because . Smith donated $1,000 to the f. Amp k. R. R. Before the Road was surveyed or located into Kokomo and because the f. Amp k. Co. Refunded r. G. Smith room for More than a fair consideration those men who Are opposing the Railroad tax cry a corruption a the consideration aforesaid was this when the f. It so k. R. R. Came to be permanently located it was found that the right of Way would run in a curve through and Knock the Smithereens out of Smiths addition. Or. Smith liberally offered to give the right of Way if refunded the $1,000, which proposition was accepted by the company. It will appear evident that the r. R. Company made a Good bargain if the Reader will examine the records and see where a. R. Windsor obtained judgment against the f. Amp k. Road for $1,125.95 for a right of Way through a much smaller and much less desirable piece of ground nearly a mile West of Smiths addition. Upon the basis of the Windsor judgment the right of Way through Smiths addition was Well Worth $2,500 at that time. The opposition Are talking har j.
