ONLY A BABE OF THE POOR.
Only a bafty, with innocent eyes,
That scans, with a mournful sort of surprise
The face of its mother, ami womlrrs why
Rabies mu si hunger ami moan and die.
Only a baby, with face tear-stained,
Wondering, doubtless, what it has gained
In roming to earth with its baby grace,
To find poor babies are here out of place.
Only a lwiby, an innocent thing,
With a touch as soft as an angel’s wing,
With rosebud mouth and a face ns fair
As the sweetest dream of a painter rare.
Only a baby, a morsel of life.
Afloat on this turbulent river of strife,
With nerves to quiver with pain and feel
The hand of want with its grip of steel.
Only a baby, a bud from the tree
<»f life that blooms by the crystal sea;
That fell to earth from an angel's hand,
A souvenir of the better land.
Only a babr f a child of the poor,
Whose hearts entwine it close, to be sure,
Rut who have more of kisses than bread.
And mingle their tears o'er its little head.
Only a baby, fast fading away
In the morning hour of its mortal day.
With wan, whitefaeeand small hands pressed
In meekest submission across its breast.
Only a baby, with eyelids closed
In that dreamless sleep no hunger know s.
With its waxen handeon its pulseless breast
The balu* of the poor from want finds rest,
Only a baby’s lone mother to weep
And sob her darling’s name in her sleep,
And sadly to say in her want and woe:
‘because we are poor it is better so."
Only a baby’s short history, this;
A tale of its hunger and helplessness:
Rut w hat of the babies who still endure?
Ood pity and help the babes of the poor.

the intelligent colored man or woman
in America, seeing the depths to which
we have descended, who desires to
leave his or her race and cast his or
her lot with another people,, who
preach constantly our inferiority, ought
never to have been born. They are a
disgiacc in the world, and when they
are dead the abnormal negroes of this
country will be belter off. I know
that there are gentlemen who argue
about the power of. love and oppo
sites attracting, and all that kind of
stuff. 1 have only to say that very-
few negroes commit suicide on ac
count ol “heart troubles,” and since
the creation of the world, if the statis
tics were gathered of the colored p
sons who had taken their own lives
on account of ‘‘heart troubles,
would, in my opinion, be found that
fully 99 per cent, did not intend to
commit suicide, but thought they
would scate somebody, and met with
an accident. When a negro leave
his race by a foolish intermarriage, it
is the duty ol the race to have noth
ing further to do with him. This talk
of destroying the color line is non
sense, and the man who talks it either
shows that he docs not think or that
lie is ignorant. “Can a leopard change
his spots, or an Ethiopian his skin ?"
One negro like Taylor is worth a
train load of whites like Duck, I-cwis
ad id genus omne.—Evening News,
PROMINENT NEGRO LAWYER.
And Late United States Minister to Li
The News received a visit this morn
ing from Chas. H. J. Taylor, colored,
of Atlanta, attorney at law, and late
U. S. minister to Liberia by appoint
ment from Kansas City by President
Taylor is in Macon on legal busi
ness. He has a lucrative and success
ful practice in Atlanta, and bears high
testimonials of endorsement from Gov.
Gordon and other distinguished Geor
gians, as to character and intelligence.
He has been admitted to practice in
the superior and supreme courts of
this State, and by his general excellent
department has won the respect and
confidence of all classes. Taylor is
about 33 years old. He was born in
Alabama, and was given a good edu
cation, and was sent to the university
at Ann Harbor, Michigan, where he
took a general course and also grad
uated at law. He lived quite awhile
in. Savannah, and was in the employ
of Col. J. H. Kstill. Taylor has
practiced law about twelve years. He
has always been a Democrat. lie has
held political offices in Indiana and
Missouri. He was formerly assistant
city attorney of Kansas City. By his
powers of organization and good ad
vice, he consolidated the negro vote
in tavor of the Democratic ticket, and
wrested the city from Republican con
trol. He has been a leader in politi
President Cleveland thought a great
deal of Taylor and appointed him
Minister to Liberia, which office he
held two and a half years. He was
encouraged to move to Atlanta. He
says he has been well treated there
and shown as much consideration by
the whites as he could possibly expect,
and has done better than if he had
remained North. He came South,
because he loves the place of his na
tivity and because he prefers living
among people of his own color and
blood, and because he is inspired by
a laudable desire to elevate and in
struct his race.
Taylor is conservative in his views,
and recognizes the fact that the ne
gro’s best friends arc the people ol
the South. He depreciates such af
fairs as the Bryant Alabama incident
He thinks the negroes should be taught
by Southern teachers and not by im
ported Northern teachers and that the
State should aim to establish schools
and colleges to he under the guidance
and management of Southern people.
Such schools arc better for the rising
generation of negroes than the insti
tutions established by Northern phi
lanthropy and Northern money, for
then the young mind of die negro will
not he filled with false teachings and
evil doctrines about the South and Iter
people. He desires the negro to learn
that politics is not the only and best
panacea for their ills.
