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 strike them?
     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 daughter.
     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 The Bee.

LIEUT. TOONEY MARRIED.  Miami Fla., Oct. 11, 1916.
     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 state.
     Respectfully yours,    J. T. BROWN
    
The editor of the Bee congratulates his old friend and hopes him long life and perpetual happiness.
