MORE BLOODY WORK.
The Bee takes this opportunity of calling the
attention of all decent colored Americans to the recent
diabolical work of Southern Democrats and Night Riders
against respectable colored citizens at Albany, Ga.
Will colored men with any self respect urge their
fellow-brother to support Mr. Bryan and the
Democratic party? If such hellish deeds at this
time are committed in the south by the Democratic party,
what is the colored man to expect in the event of the
success of the Democratic party?
Colored men of the nation, if you have honor, and
respect the virtue of your wives and daughters, turn a
deaf ear to the pleadings of the party that has declared
that colored Americans are inferiors; that colored
Americans are not entitled to citizenship.
No colored citizen with any self-respect can so soon
forget the memory of his ancestors and what they
suffered under Democratic rule to support that party.
How does this cold and hellish deed against the
innocent men, women and children appeal to the senses of
colored American citizens? How does the argument
This reminds The Bee of the Duke of Gloucester's appeal
to Elizabeth for the hand of her daughter, and when he
was told by her to present to her the head of her father
and other kin who were murdered by Gloucester he left in
disgust and declared that was not the way to win her
The same picture confronts colored Americans to
influence the colored vote.
Thousands are murdered and hundreds of houses are
destroyed yearly by the Democratic party and still that
party appeals to this race at this time to elect the
Democratic standard bearers of that party. It is
only necessary to review the record of the Democratic
party as it relates to colored Americans. If there
is one commendable feature in that record, then
Ben Tillman will pray that all colored Americans be
placed upon social and political equality with the white
people in the South. It is indeed, sad to read the
press dispatches of this recent outrage. This
bloody deed should be read, which appears elsewhere in

officiated. Many floral offerings. Interment
Mt. Zion Cemetery.
LIEUT. TOONEY MARRIED. Miami Fla., Oct. 11,
Editor Washington Bee.
In a city where the prospective groom has figured at
one time so conspicuously it will be doubtless a matter
of interest to know that the wedding bells are swinging
in the tour and about to ring for the early marriage of
Lieut. R. E. S. Tooney and Miss Nandesthes B.
Dillardof this city.
Lieut. Tooney is a successful practitioner at
the bar here and has made good beyond the dream of his
friends. A poem a few days ago, written on the
poet Thomas Whitcomb Riley, by Mr. Toomey,
is his last great effort. Both of the parties to
the contracting ceremony are high in the esteem of the
public and have the good wishes of the entire city and
Respectfully yours, J. T. BROWN
The editor of the Bee congratulates his old friend
and hopes him long life and perpetual happiness.
