Corporal Hevron said the people
were creating a general disturbance as
described above, and the women were
flushed with excitement and were in
decently attired. The noise could be
heard for some distance.
Tney were going through with in
decent performances, which were dis
gusting in the extreme. The house has
been known as one used lor immoral
purposes, and the proprietress keeps a
wood and charcoal shop in front as a
"blind."
After hearing the evidence the Re
corder stated that he considered the
patients more dupes than sinners and
would be lenient with them. Alexander
and Lou Jackson were fined $2^ each,
and the balance, except Alice Julia
Smith, aged 17 years, who had been ar
rested with her mother, were fined $2.50
each. The young girl said that she had
been suffering from blood poisoning, and
several doctors had failed to cure her.
She was told of Alexander and went to
him, and he corefd her.
The women were all white, and many of
them were women of high social position
who explained that they had at first vis
ited the voudoo for medical treatment,
and had been so fascinated by his power
that a aesort to his den bad become
habitual. Some said they had gone to
the place to have some fun and had
brought baskets of provisions.
The Colored man Alexander is a tall,
slender, smooth-faced mulatto. He was
born in Hancock Coanty, Mississippi,
and has been in this city for a number
of years.
He says he was born with a caul and
veil over his face and a gift from God in
his hand. He has given those dances
frequently, as it assists in curing some of
his patients in some of their complaints,
especially sores and stiffness of tbe limbs.
This was the second time he had been
to Lou Jackson's and she invited him,
as she had done the others to come.
Accepted With Thanks.

MADAME O. ESPERANZA LUI&.
The people of the faintly City should
congratulate themselves upon the glori
ous privileee which will be theirs on
next Monday evening, at which time
they may hear Madame O. Esperanza
Luis, of the city of Gpuaives, Hayti, lec
ture upon "Hayti an4 the Haytiens" at
Pilgrim Paptist church. Madame Luis
is given up by the public and pres-t to be
the most eloquent oratress now before
the American people, &he has been lec
turing in California and the West for
several months past, and for the last
month, in different parts of Minnesota.
The interest which isjust now center
ed around Hayti makes the subject of
Madame Luis particularly attractive and
instructive, and her advent in our city
should be hailed with great jov.
Madame Luis has secured the Pilgrim
Baptist church in which to give her lec
ture, and the church should be crowded
to its utmost capacity Monday night.
Madame Luis is on her way to Africa
as a missionary and hopes the friends of
Christianity and humanity will lend a
helping hand.
Below we give some letters of recom
mendation of Madame Luis which speak
for themselves:
OFFICE OF Y. M. C. A., SACRAMENTO,
CAL., December 18,1888.
Madame O. Esperanza Luis,of the City
of Gonaives, Hayti, appeared before a
select and intelligent audience last even
ing in our association hall, and delighted
all present in the delivery of her most
splendid and interesting lecture, enti
tled "Hayti and the Haytiens." It was
the unanimous .decision of all her hear
ers that this talented oratress of the
Sunny Carribean ranks foremost in her
profession upon the lecture platform of
to-day. The Madame's style is most
pleasant, and, as a true type of her race,
she reflects great credit upon her peo
ple. She impresses her audience at
once as being a woman of refined cul
ture and oratorical power. I would most
heartily recommend her services for
consideration.
Most sincerely. A. C. GOOEKIN,
Acting General Secretary, Y. M. C. A.

An anti-excursion society is being
formed here for the purpose of discour
aging the Colored people from spending
all the money they make with the rail
roads. One of the means to be used is
to wait upon the employers and request
them to refuse a leave of absence, and if
they go anyway to fill their places with
other Colored men or women as the case
may be. The prime movers in the or
ganization claim to be greatly encour
aged and hope to break up the foolish
habit of giving to the railroads all the
money the poor deluded creatures make
in summer and then starve, steal and go
naked all winter, Well we'll see. We
doubt the success of the move for if
there is anything the Colored people
like best, it is riding on a railroad car
and his big high sounding title in his
