THE OLD QUESTION IN NEW
Volunteer notice of Freder
ick Douglass, raises a question which
we wore inclined to allow to adjust it
self. It says
"What did the speaker refer to?
Whore had ho been snubbed in Carlisle?
Upon inquiry, we learned that he lied
stopped at the " Bentz House," a inns!
excellent hotel kept by our Republican
friend, Mr. Geo. Z. Bentz. Dente
very properly gave Douglass a good room
in his house, but when supper NVPS an
nounced ho just as properly informed
his sable guest that he could not eat at
the public table with his white boarders.
Douglass, it, was evident from liis de
jected look, had not expected Lids kind
of treatment. The "Bentz House" hes
a Republican for its landkud, and nu: ily
all if not all the boarders are also Repub
licans, and it was not much wonder then'
that Douglass felt disappointed. Ile
said little, however, and consented to
take his meals in' his room by himself.
With all their professions, then, we have
in this circumstance positive evidence
that the radicals are just as join to re
cognize negro-equality :is !be. Democrats
are. Put them to the test and they
squirm like eels in the process of being
skinned, when they are asked. to take a
'seat at the same table with, a negio.
We don't blame them ; human nature is
human nature ; but we desire - the " col
ored troops who fought bravely," to note
tho facts hero mentioned."
This question is coming, and may as
:wolf be met. Mr. Bentz, of himself,
hs,d no disposition to refuse, to allow Mr,
Douglass to come to the dining room.
Ho put it on the ground that there was
BO much prejtidice hero on the subject,
that ha could not do it without pininni
ary loss. This, seemed to be alreos
curtain from the ordinary street tall:
the town, and, therctbrc, we find no
fault with Mr. Bentz for Lis action. HO
was under no obligation to incur even
the risk of loss in tlic matter. As a
question of fact, however, we respect
fully differ. If Mr. Doh'lass had gone
into the dining room, it is quite possible
that two or three persons, out of the
whole number there,' might have illus
trated their superior manners by con
temptuously leaving the room ; butthey
would have come back afterwards rather
than to have gone anywhere else on such
provocation, and that would have ended
the matter. We don't believe seriously,
Mr. Mentz would have been out a penny in
the transaction. But as we said before,
to judge from Lilo silly clamor on this
question, there was a risk, and 'we don't
llamo Mr. Bentz forlavoiding it.
Now we wish to say a word on this
question. There is in this commhnity
a prevailing sentiment that a colored
man—because he is it colored man—:
should not becceeivcd o itito a hotel. This
is simply silly and wicked. lOhas never
Ueda denied that a colored man has a
right to travel wherever he pleases, just
as a white man. or aniudian has. When
ho travels, he mustrely on houses for the
accommodation of travelers for food
and shelter. lie has no right to
impose himself on any private -family,
and cannot come within the door of the
meanest hovel, in the place he visits, un
invited, except its a trespasser. The
public sentiment that refuses to allow
atiy man who will conform to the rules
of a public house to be entertained,
"when lie it away faun his family,-if clu
voloped logicOly, would allov to
starve or freqzo iu i tho - streets. That
it is wicked, tyraunicaland cowardly,
mods'ho argument to provo. e.
But look at its ahsurdity. There is
no degradation of the white race-possi.

It loss been customary from ti roe
immemorial for the members of thy
" Fresinnen" class, in Dick i :won College,
to" get up a burlesque entertainment at
the expense of. the members of the
Junior and Senior classes. During the
past week, some of the young gentlemen
have been enjoying themselves in this
style. On Saturday written notices
were posted in different conspicuous
places, annduncing that a burlesque
Clitertainment on the classes of '72 and
'7O, would be given )u the College chapel
that evening, •by the " Freshmen" or
class of '75. In the absence of President
At au earlphour "ye local" wended
his nay to the chapel, and notwithstand
ing the evening was "dark and stormy,"
we were surprised to find a very large
and Minnow audience In attendance,
and on the tiptoe, of excitement for the
entertainment to commence.
Before the exercises began, however,
costly and elegant (4 .. programmes were
distributed. Punctually at the hour,
the speaking began, the exercises inter
spersed with most discordant music, that
it was ever our (nis) fortune to listen to.
The exercises were far below similar
entertainments of previous, years, and.
the whole affair was considered very thin.
The orators delivered extemporanbotut
addresses, burlesquing the 'speeches de
livemd by the yonfig, gentlemen on the
Thursday evening previous.
When the valedictory had been de
liVtired, all the participating members,
masked in white robes brought . a largo,
coffin into the' room, in which was
supposed to be the corpse, of - Girl Hero
doteus—tlie author of ono of the Greek
books studied in College. The chaplain
of tho class - then delivered a fills:Hal ser
mon, and upon its conclusion, preceded
icy tho - band, consisting pf 3 drunt4, the,
procession took up the lino of march
down Main street. On .and on they
marched in allonec, not is sound is heard
save theinusic of the drums, muffled by
the falling flakes of snow. - The entire
length of Main street is traversed, but
,no halt ie made ; on past the gas house
and the South Mountain depot, when
suddenly they reach the spot—in close
'proximity to the "gallows ground"—.
the place where Donnelly_ was hung,
Oivitig to the lateness of the 'hour, the
exercises wore )10mA:wily brief.
Upon returning to the college grounds,
several members of..the :Faculty Were
serenaded, and one of the Professors, in
answer to loud .thud repeated calls, de
livered a short speech, and at a late hour
tho young gentlemen brought these
Tidiculous procedures to a oloso.
