, a ; OPEN LETTER TO THE PRESIDENT. Mr. President: There are a number of American citizens who who have the most implicit conn : dence in you and believe that you are right on the Hawaiian question. LOf course there are people who for partisan reasons believe that Mr. Harrison was right. The. same confidence that Mr. Harrison placed placed in his minister, Mr. Stevens, are similar to that you placed in your special commissioner. Mr. Blount. There is a division of opinion, but on the fce of the returns J am of the opinion that you have done jour duty, as you see it. The people are tired of the ques : tion, Mr. President, especially the negro democrats. They believe that you ought to turn your attention for awhile to negro demooatio ap: pointmeuts. The followers of the late Bishop J. M. Brown are surprised that you have not rewarded the services that the late bishop rendered, to have recognized his oldest sou, Prof W. L. Brown, before now. , I congratulate you Mr. President on you political stroke of policy in sending white men to colored governments and colored men to white governments. If confirmations confirmations are going to work as slowly as that of Ash woods and Taylors', the colored democrats would prefer to have the same old thing. They are about convinced that a departure, so far as they are concerned, is to their detriment. It is admitted that you are far ahead of your party and party supporters, but it does seem strange that nothing has been done for the boys before now. You are aw;ire, no doubt, Mr. President", that it has been almost a year ana the unwashed colored democrats are still lingering in the cold. Our friend, C. H. J. Taylor is in Kansas, Mr. President, telling the people that you are the greatest man since the reign of Julius Cea sar. He is perfectly satisfied with what you have done for him, and should you not give bim anything else Mr. Taylor is too much of a democrat to kick. Christmas was a beautiful diy and there is no doubt but that quite a number of stockings were hung up the night before Christmas to betaken down empty. Before I close, Mr. President, le me call your attention to the wortht mess of Hon. John W. Ross, one of the commissioners of the District of Columbia. Col. Ross is a gentleman, gentleman, Mr. President, and a mao in whom the people of this district have the most implicit aontidence. His reappointment would meet the hearty indorsement of the people, as well as it would be a benefit to tne distrfi5t- Wishing you a happy New Year, believe me to be, sincerely yours, The Editor,
