* Frederick Douglass death
Page 4 has a half-column editorial titled: "Frederick Douglass" which begins: "In the death of Frederick Douglass this country loses its most representative colored citizen. There are others who posses brains, education and talent, but none of them measure up to Douglass' standard of greatness..." with more (see).
