A SLAVE'S SECRET.
Concerning- a Silver Mine in West
Virginia Proves to be
A Big Bonanza.
Recently there has been a great deal
of excitement at Moorfield, Hardy,
county, W. Va over the publication of
the fact that a company has been organ
ized to open andwork a silyermine, lo
cated by local tradition for fifty years
past in "Middle Mountain," a few miles
from the town. Ten years before the
war John Gaiter, a slave ov by a
small farmer nearMooifield, located the
mine, and going to his master, told him
he would show him where the mine was
piovided he would set him free. The
master refused to do this, so the old
man never told where the silver could
be found. When the war set Gaiter free
he moved with his family to Mount
He died some years ago, but before
his death told his son Henry where to
find the mine. lie has been back several
times and obtained silver from the mine
and had it tested. It proved to be of
the best quality, and Henry has various
things which he says are made of this sil
ver. For yeais people have searched
for this silvei mine, but ha\ never been
able to And it.
However a laige tract of land on
Middle Mountain was purchased by a
body of gentlemen, composed of S. A.Hon,
McMahon, PI. T. Cair, and others. Some
of the company have been in correspond
ence with Gaiter about the mine. Gaiter
says the mine is on this land, and finally
agieed to come and point it out for 25and
per cent of the yield of the mine. Gaiter
arrived last week, and work was begun
at once to fix up the papers. Gaiter
seems confident about the mattei and
that as soon as the papers are properly
ai ranged he will cairy out his paitof
Gaiter has a relative in Chicago in the
person of Mr. C. R. Johnson, District
Secretary of the Odd Fellows and head
waiter at the Southern Hotel, and he
has used his utmost endeavors to get
Johnson to purchase the land on which
the mine is situated but Johnson gave
so little credence to the tradition that
he would not invest the few hundreds
of dollars necessary to purchase the
whole tract. Hh has recently received
a letter from Gaiter, who informs him
that the indications are that the mine is
a -\ery profitable one. Johnson now
employes considerable portion of his
time in going into the cellar and kicking
Jnmself for missing his chance to make

HAD A HOLE IN IT.
Disappearance of Funds From
the Conference Trunk
Colored Churchmen Excited.
Parkersburg, W. Va., March 10.The
Twenty-sixth annual session of the
Washington Conference of the M. E,many
Church (Colored) opened here Thursday.
The attendance is extraordinarilly large.
Bishop S. M. Merville, presided, and
the Rev. E. W. S. Peck, of Baltimore,
.was re-elected secretary. The Rev. J.
&*r jPhoinas, of/Washitfgtoir", D:C, was
chosen statistical secretary.
The duties of the secretary of the var
ous conference departments excited a
heated discussion, owing to the alleged
fact that moneys deposited in what is
called the "conference trunk," a re
ceptacle for contributions to the various
church charitable departments, had not
been strictly and correctly acoounted
for. There had been considerable mis
understanding relative to the disposition
of and accountability of these moneys.
The Rev. A. Reed said that there "bad
always been a hole in the bottom and
top of that trunk." The Rev. R. S,
Smith Avas also of the opinion that, to
put it in his own words, "money was
put in the trunk and somebody took it
out and did not report the fact."
The trunk arrangement was veiy un
satisfactory, owing doubtless moie to
a misunderstanding of the duties of the
various financial officeis than for any
thing else. No imputation was implied
by the warm arguments, but the minis
ters complained that the various depart
ments were not pi operly managed in
their relation to the financial end of the
conference. The trouble was settled in
a satisfactory manner by the passage of
a resolution that all moneys, except
those to be applied to relief of superan
nuated ministers, be paid to the Treas
urer, and receipted for by him.
This is the Place to Go.
The first grand reception under the
auspices of the Porters and Janitors
Union No. 1 will be held at Central Hall

gramme consisting of addresses by F. L.
Barnett, Esq., Hon. J, W. E. Thomas,
Alexander Clark O. J. Nail
piesident of the Union, H. T. Smith,
vice president and others. There
will also be readings, lecitations and

ple of Duluth, last but not lea6t, although
we are small in number we are possessed
with large minds and wants, notwith

privileges belonging to citizens of U. S.
But there are some things yet wanted
by the Colored people of Duluth.
The Zenith City is one of the most
beautiful cities of the Northwest, its
beauty cannot be described by thewhich
writer. Nestled in a lovely valley be
side the great unsalted seas. All persons
coming to our pretty little city are very
much delighted with it, after living here
a short time. But one of the most im
portant things that our city needs is a
Colored church, although we are heartily
received bv the people of the white
churches. But we long for a vine and
fig-tree of our own to have a church we
must first have a minister. Every in

The Fast Ends With a Feast.
Springfield, Ohio, March 11.Mrs.
Pauline King, a Colored woman here
who claims to have been fasting forty
days, completed her fast Saturday after
noon and took a public feast in the Su

She had a table abundantly spread with
bread, butter, cold meat, cake, pie andpage.
fruits. Tlie faith cuie people had charge
of the meeting. Mrs. King arrived at
2:30, though she was not to begin her
feast until 4 o'clock, at which hour she
said the forty days would be up. The
time was occupied in singing hymns and
with speeches from several pepole. A
prayer meeting followed in which half a
dozen went into trances, and there was
such a crowd and jam at the door that
the police had to be sent foi. She made
a little speech in which she claimed
Christ ordered her to fast. In compli
ance with the divine order, therefore
Mrs. King began her fast on the 27th
day of January, at which time her
weight, now eighty-nine, was 113 pounds.
There is no doubt she really went
without food^the time she claimed. The
latest vision Mrs. King has leceived
from on high js that ^jer body shall not
be burned on this earth, but that she
will ascend to heaven as Elijah of old
and then, when this has occurred, there
will be no hereafter.

Colored Lynchers Convicted.
Charleston, S. C, March 10.The con
viction of three Colored men, Batten
Heyward and Williams closes a remark
able case in the criminal annals of South
Carolina. A white man named Waldrop
was accused of outraging a Colored girl,
who died from the effects of the assault.
Waldrop was committed for trial, and
on his way to jail a body of Colored men
overpowered the constable and hanged
Waldrop to a tree by the roadside.
They were following the example of the
white people in defending, under the
highest law, the sanctity of their homes.
Six of the leading lynchers were arrested
and three are now convicted, but with
a recommendation to mercy. All this
occurred in Pickens county in the north
western corner of the state over a year

than the emblem of freedom: A hawk
made a dash at some chickens in a Color
