Her Loyalty Rewarded.
Mrs. Fannie Brown, proprietor of the
Remonde House is one of the most loyal
Republicans in Chicago. It is true she
has no vote but she always works hard
for the success of her party. Last fall
during the campaign, Mrs. Brown came
out in the precessions with a broom
brigade composed of ladies. The sight
of these Colored ladies in bright red
uniforms armed with broomswith which
to sweep out the White House, caused
some of their sisters to make disparag
ing remarks, although there were white
women in the procession also. One Col
ored female remarked that Mrs. Brown
and the entire company ought to be
tarred and feathered. Well Mrs. Brown
has leceived her reward for her devo
tion to her party. She has been ap
pointed to take cearge of the Custom
House and Postorfice linen at a salary
of $1,100 per year. This sum will amply
repay Mrs. Brown for sneers she receiv
ed while working for her party.

The ninth annual coronation Queen's
Mate Party of the Autumn Club took

Notwithstanding the very chilly weather
about 500 guests assembled. The hall
was beautifully decorated and on the
stage there were beautiful potted plants.
It uas 11 o'clock when the grand march
began led by Mr. arid Mwrf LJRfcGhee.
Mrs. McGhee wore a black lace over
black satin petticoat, passementry, pink
silk girdle, natural flowers, pearls.

During the march members of the club(

the most elegant and expensive ever

After dance number 3 the coming of the

luctantly departed for their homes.
The Olivet Concert.
On last Monday evening Central Hall
was the scene of a grand and interesting
concert. Fully one thousand people
were present, representing nearly every
section of the city. The concert was
under the sole supervision of Mrs. Julia
Plummer Burgess to whose uutiririg zeal
the success which crowned the enter,
prise may be ascribed, and was for the
benefit of Olivet Baptist Church. By
eight o'clock the programme was en
tered upon, and for three hours the au
dience enjoyed the intellectual display
of 150 lasses and youths, ranging in age
from 3 to 20 years. And in this connec
tion THE APPSAC, desires to congratulate
Mrs. Burgess upon inaugurating a plan,
which, if universally adopted, will have
the wholesome effect of destroying the
baneful paretice of commencing concerts
at the hour when the concourse should
disperse.
Some of tbe principal features of the
evening were: The recitation by Mas
ter Clarence Payton, entitled "Betty
and the Bear," in the rendition of which
he acquitted himself nobly, and in ap
rreciation of which he was called a
sscond time.
The dialogue entitled "A Drunken
man's child," where in an every day
scene was vividly portrayed, was an ex
quisite production, participated in by
Messrs. Elias Dorsey, who performed
the character of "Drunken Man," Rus
sell Brown, "Policeman," Edward Hill,
"Turn-key," Henry Clark, "Bar-tend-
er," 'and Miss Blanche Wright, the
"Daughter," of the drunken man. It so
happened that Miss Wright's father
drank", became intoxicated, and was ar
rested Miss Wright made a very earnest
and impressive appeal for her father's
release, who was finally relaased.
The duet by the Misses Fannie Bu.
cbauon and Delia Blake was a charming
rendition.
Our'rising elocutionist, Miss Hattie
Hudlun, recited "A Wounded Soldier,'?
but the faint expression of her voice and
the noise in the rear ot the hall, com
bined to mar the beauty of that pathetic
recitation. Tbe vocal solo by Miss
Mamie Gordon, entitled "An Orange
Bloseqm" was indeed of an orange blos
som Jbaracter, the rendition of which
l^ingfjnhanced by the occasional expres
sion cf laughter which often bedecked
Miss Gordon's countenance.
The|f "Parasol Drill," led by Miss
Frances Barry, was a scene worthy of
witnessing, commanding the undivided
attention of the audience.
Music and dancing were conspicuous
only by their absence.

Twenty-Five Years, But
Refuses to Pa for
Medical Services and is Sued.
Cincinnati, O., May 20.An interest,
ing suit, that was filed some time ago in
Squire Hauser's Court, was brought to
light Saturday, More than one effort to
compromise the suit has been made, but
the plaintiff has refuse to settle for any
thing but the full amount.
The plaintiff is Dr. William D. Haines,
of Freeman avenue, and the defendant
is Abraham Mann, a contractor who
lives on the Warsaw pike. Price Hill.
The doctor sues to recover $300 for med
ical services.
The facts are interesting. Two years
age Dr. Haines was called in to attend
A COLORED WOMAN
Named Mary Johnson, who was sick
in bed with consumption. He called
regularly twice a day, but the disease
had such a hold on the woman that she
died. The doctor's bill was $300, but
there was no one to pay it. He inquired
around, and was told by more than one:
Why don't you collect it from her hus
band, Charlie Johnson." AB the latter
was a white man the doctor paid no at
tention, until the evidence that the
woman was married was so convincing
that he appeared before 'Squire Hauser
and entered suit. Clerk Frank Doss
man was engaged to look into the ease*
He found that the dead woman had
A siana LIVING
In Indianapolis. He hunted her up
and now has her de^tiou. Her naxne
is Carolin* Bently, and she'lives at 25
Eddy street, Indianapolis.
She appeared before Jumes P. Baker,
of 33 Vance Block, and made her deposi
tion. She says that she first became ac
quainted with Abraham Mann in this
city twenty-five yearsago, when he lived
im Avery alley. She claims that Mann
married ber sister, and he is her brother
-in-law. Her sister's maiden name was
Miary Head. Mrs. Bently claims that
she lived with Mann and his(wife for
over a year and was with her a month
before she died. They always addressed
each other as
HUSBAND AND W1VB.
But hs was known as Charlie Johnson
and Bhe was called Mary Johnson.
Mrs. Bently says she never saw the
marriage certificate. She knows Dr.
Haines, as he attended her sister.
In her deposition, Mrs, Bently says
ann is a white man and her sister was
Colored.
The doctor also has the evidence that
Mary Johnson WBB expelled from church,
as she was charged with living with a
white man, but when she showed her
certificate jf marriage she was reinstated.
The preacher who tried the case is Rev.
Dortsch, who is at preset at Ailed, 111.
His deposition will arrive in this city in
a few day8.
Constable Billy Burchard summoned
Mann to appear. He has engaged Jor
dan Thomas as his attorney, and offered
to compromise for $150, but the doctor
wants all or nothing.
Mann is a well-known contractor on

Rev. S. P. Anderson returned to the
city last Friday. He was enthusiastically
received by many rejoicing friends. He
says there is nothing in the charge ot
forgery but that it would be cleared
away ere long. He said: "You see
there are always a few disaffected mem
bers in any body. I have good reason
to believe that these, whose names I will
not mention, were growing restless and
wanted a change. You see, thrt men
who represented that they were acting
for the church, asked Chief Huebler to
ofter a reward of $100 for my arrest. I
was incarcerated three days until Chief
Huebler sent a telegram ordering my
unconditional release. My people think
I have done no intentional wrong. It
would be ridiculous for me to leave all
I have in the world, to alienate myself
for the sake of a few hundred dollars.
I'll come out all right in tbe end."
About 9.3b o'clock Monday nigbt a ro
bust Colored woman, about 22 years of
age, entered the Dime Museum at Sixth
street and Franklin aveuue, and as she
reached the second floor she drew a
large knife from her stocking and began
edging through the vast crowd toward a
youag Colored man whose attention was
taken up with a well-dressed lady stand- .Smitfr.s boarding house 107 E. Walnut
ing near the entrance te the second floor
stage. No one in the crowd noticed the
knife until he was about 5 feet from hr
intended victim. She could not get anv
nearer toward the man, and wild with
frenzy, she reached her arm over the
heads of the spectators in front of her
and madeseveral plunges at the man.
This conduct startled the crowd, among
which was a number of ladies, who be
gan to scream, and it seemed fof awhile
as if a stampede would occur. The knife*
fell short of its aim, but made A cut
down the back of a young white man's
coat who happened in the way of the
blade. When the crowd scattered it
gave plenty of room for the woman to
attack her victim, and she went at him
with a vim. He was quite lively and
jumping to one side he dealt the excited
female a blow on the face that felled her
to the floor. Sbe got up and resumed
the attack, and succeeded in cutting"an
ugly gash on his hand before he got her
under control. While this was going on
one of the Museum employes went for
an officer, and Ofllcer Mike Mahan re
sponded and escorted the couple to the
Third District Station. The man gave
the name of Robert Newson. Ike wo
man said her name was Susie Nagel.

Mr. W. R. Bates a Democrat
appointed the Post-office as supt.
of carriers and recently promoted
to cashier can't step over and out until
asked to resign which the postmistress
will undoubtedly do. A gentleman said

to be retained. Did not Mr. Bates work
vigorously to out every Republican em-
ployer,?) He can't consequently expect
to remain and it is seemingly strnage
how the Democrats hold on so terribly
long any way when the Republicans are
so obnoxious!! But we guess it is all

There is a lHle thirteen-year-old Col
ored boy living in the West End by the
name of Freddie Beal who is a metezo
logical phenomenon. By some unknown
power he can unmistakably foretell tbe
weather for montht_ in advance. He
has a small block of wood hangipg by a
string in the back yard of his home, and
weather is coming he goes to this Wock
and gazes at it long and intently. He
foretells rains, hail-storms, snows, when
the weather will be changeable, fair or
cloudy, and has never been known to
make a mistake iu his, prognastications.
Medical men who have examined him
claim there has never been another such
case as his. There is a fortune in the
boy as a dime museum freak.,
