The change in tone of public
sentiment towards the subject of
Prohibition has, since the presi
dential election, become very de
cided, so that it is now almost generally
admitted that as a remedy for the evils
of intemperance, it is ineffective and
-valueless. Before the election, there
was much wavering in opinions but
many who never identified themselves
with the Prohibitionibts really sympa
thyzeel with and wished them success
The decided change in public sentiment
has been brought about by the unwise
course of the Prohibitionists themselves.
They were uncharitable, bigoted and in
tolerant. They allowed no one to differ
from them as to the best method of deal
ing with the subject but denounced
some of the oldest, ablest and most in
fluential friends of temperance as ene
mies to their cause. They openly pro
claimed their intention to destroy the
Republican party and scarcely made a
secret of their alliance with the Demo
cracy. The presidential campaign
ground their party to fine dust and blew
it "over the hills and far away/' and
save to public sentiment the decided tone
to which allusion has been made. The
recent State elections have empahsized
the verdict and henceforth, the time and
means that have been wasted upon this
impracticable plan will be devoted to
carrying out the ideas of such level
beaded men as Drs. Crosby and Weston,
Bishops Ireland and Ryan, Cardinal Gib
bons and other sensible friends of tem
perance and not in advancing the for
tunes of such tricksters as Messrs. Wil
lard and St. John.
If anybody believes the ex-Cofeder
ates are conquored because they are
whipped, he is sadly mistaken. Gen.
Thomas L, Rosser made a speech before
the Confederate Monumental Associa
tion at Stanton, Va., which was char
acteristic and bitter. Among other
things he said: "I approve all the
Southern confederacy did. It destroyed
evil forces and re-established good ones.
Its monuments are to truth, patriotism
and glory, not brazen images resulting
from blemished hearts and conduct.
The North abandoned the race they
emancipated, except their votes. No
Greelys, Whittiers, Beechers or Browns
write or preach or die for them. They
are abandoned by the puritanical Yan
kee who wants to correct God's mistake
and place the inferior over the superior.
Long after the brazen images in Wash
ington and else wnere have been thrown
down and the G. A. R., (so-called), Sher
man, Foraker, Ingalls and such like shall
be with the rubbish of the French revo
lution assigned to obscurity, the names
of Lee and Jackson will be bright and
A recent dispatch from Washington
says: "Matt S. Lewis, editor of the
Petersburg Herald, and a delegation of
Colored Republicans called on the Presi
denl to-day to protest against any recog
nition of Mahone in the distribution of
patronage in Virginia. They claimed
to represent ninety per cent of the, Col
ored Republicans of the State, and de-
clared that they would not 'sanction Ma
honism in Virginia. The impression
has got out, Ihey said, that Mahone was
being recognized by the administration,
they wanted to ^protest against this.
The President in reply told them that
he had not doae so, and that he did not
contemplate recognizing Mahone." The
above we reproduce because of the emi
nent good sense in it. Editor Lewis and
his friends [represent the very best ma
terial of our race in the Old Dominion
and it is certainly to hoped that Presi
dent Harrison gave them the satisfac
tion asked. We may add, also that the
manly Herald is hitting some telling
blows in the right direction,
It turns out that the Anti-Mahone
conference, at Washington, was a white
affair. Mahone is indeed a sorry and
desolate object. His Colored friends
discovered his treachery to them and
Republicanism and looked upon him as
an enemy, in disguise, long ago. Now,
it seems, the whites of the Old Domin
ion are awake to their interests and will
have no more Mahone. THE APPEAL
pointed out months ago that the little
Virginia boss was nothing but a Confed
erate Readjuster and events of the past
year would seem to substantiate, in no
uncertain tone, our forecast. President
Harrison and his Cabinet should not be
deceived by false reports. Mahone lost
Virginia to the Harrison electors last
November, because of his personal spite
and his narrow-mindedness and unscru
pulousness can be counted uponjagain to
repeat the same kind of a job whenever
opportunity requires. Virginia is a Re
publican State and the powers that be
insists upon relegating Mahone and
other bourbous to the rear.
On Decoration Day, the orator of the
day, at a celebration in Arkansas, took
occasion to declaim against the right
right of Colored citizens to vote and said
that that was not what the soldiers of
the Union fought for. The sentiment
excited enthusiastic hisses, the most of
his auditors being Colored men. The
orator claimed that the conferring Suf
frage upon Colored men was not the
work of the soldiers, but of "blundering
politicions." Now any fool can very
easily call his superiors by a disreput
able name, but that does not alter the
facts in the least, the men who took the
lead in conferring suffrage upon Colored
men were ,'men of world-wide fume in
diplomacy, statesmanship and literature
while the orator in question is "to for
tune to fume unknown," a mere ranting
blather-skite, toadying to the prejudices
of society in order to earn an invitation
to some swell dinner party or to get
some few crumbs of official patronage.
The Florida Bourbons have discovered
and for aught we know, patented a new
plan to prevent ''Negro domination," at
least, in the city of Jacksonville. By au
thority of a special act of the legislature,
the Governor appoints the City Council
and the City Council appoints all other
officers, and, of course, the whole ships
crew are Bourbons. It can readily be
foreseen that this piece of atrocious vil
lainy will in short return to plague the
inventors. The Governor's pets will in
evitably get to stealing and in a little
time the Bourbons will be as anxious to
get them out as they were to get them
in. Jacksonville seems to need, very*
badly, a little more yellow-fever as the
last seems to have failed tcr leave any ef
fect in improving the morals of the
"Bruce Grit" says in the Cleveland Ga
zette: "I can not understand why or
how it is that the same old crowd comes
around regularly every four years to get
their political rations from the commis
sar}'after wnich they go into innocuous
desuetude." The why is easily explain
ed. The s. o. c. are always hungry. Like
the house-leeche's daughters,they are al
ways'crying: "Give, give!" The "how"
is simply the operation of the political
machines operated by the bosses, in
conjunction with the ignorance and sim
plicity of the voters.
It is with no small amount of pleasure
that THE APPEAL is able to announce
that Hon. H. G. Stordock has been re
elected warden of the Minnesota Peni
tentiary by the board of managers. We
had the privilege of visiting the state
prison several times during the past two
years and believe from all we saw that
Warden Stordock is the right man in the

Pine Bluff, Ark., June 9.
Editor of THE APPISAL:The event of
the week here was the commencement
of the Branch Normal College held in
.the large auditorium, which was bril
liantly illuminated by a magnificent re
flector, almost equal to electric light,
and gaily decorated with streamers,
flowers and pictures, almost equaling in,
apearance a grand opera-house. The
exercises, generally, began at 8 o'clock
p. m. as that time best suited the con
venience of the people. The attendance
was generally large, and at those of the
graduating class, was over-flowing, hun
dreds being unable to obtain admittance
The exercises on Tuesday June 4, were
those of the Junior Literary Society,
consisting f essays, declamations, ora
tions, etc., all of which were admirably
given, showing that the training in elo
cution had been practical and thorough.
The musical exercises, rendered by our
orchestra composed of students and
teachers, combining brass and string in
struments with the organ, were of a
high order of merit not little Sunday
school songs and ballads, but each first
class pieces as the choruses, "Hark, They
Come. "The Hunting Call," and such
overtures as, "The Contest," by Mueller,
and"Hippodrome," by Boyer. The grad
uates were: Misses Kate D. Barnett and
Anna C. Patillo Messrs. Geo. F. Prew
ett, B. E. Reed, M. J. Harrison, Wm. B.
Coleman, Jordan A. Anderson, F. K.
Howard, Thomas G. Childress. Their
performances, without exception, elicit
ed great applause, and each graduate
was the the happy recipient of several
beautiful presents among which were
some of silver and gold. After the ad
dresses, the diplomas were presented,
with appropriate remarks by Governor
J. P. Eagle, who came from Little Rock
for that purpose. Mayor C. R. Brecken
ndge, congressman, being present, by a
special invitation, made a most excellent
address. The progress of the institution
since its establishment in 1873, has been
steady and gratifying and its students
are in great demand as teachers the

A Great Privilege.
Nothing is more inspiring and awaken

talk of those who bring genius, deep
study, and long preparation to the dis
cussion of any subject. To see and hear
the foremost men and women of the
country in any department of work is in
itself an educating inflence. To leave
our own pent-up neighborhood and see
what may be in the world beyond, to
pass through grand and beautiful re
gions, to visit the historic places of the
country, and explore natures wonders,
will broaden and cultivate both mind
and manners.' The National Educational

Three Links Entertainment.
"Paul Pry" in the Pioneer Press re
cently, tells the story of how a certain
manager for Vogler the proprietor of St.
Jaacob's Oil, before the oil became fa
mous, secured permission to go to New
York and contract for $10,000 worth of
advertising. The enterprising manager
went and within a short time made con
tracts for not only $10,000 but $100,000.
This represented every dollar Vogler
was worth, and of course, he was verv
angry with his manager for so far, as he
thought, over-stepping the bounds of
reason. Two months rolled by and little
was heard of the investment but so care
fully had the manager arranged his ad
vertising that it was impossible for the
people not to Bee and notice it, and at
the end of the third month letters and
orders were coming in at the rate of
from 2,000 to 3,000 per day, and Vogler
died worth $5,000,000. His manager
knew the value of printers ink.
The value of liberal judicious adver
tising even in the ordinary local affairs
was satisfactorly demonstrated Tuesday
night by the crowd that attended the
Odd Fellow's entertainmentthe largest
crowd tnat has ever attempted to get in
the hall, for many could not get in. A
short time ago one of the progressive
members of the Odd Fellow's was very
much impressed with the crowd that
was drawn to Stevens Lodge Hall by the
advertisements in THE APPEAL and
when the representative of the paper
put in his appearance he at once con
tracted for the advertising which has
since appeared in the paper for the
Odd Fellows. He did this saying, "I
will pay for it myself if necessary," but
the sequel proved that was not neces
sary. Of course, when one advertises
he must have something meritorious to
offer or success does not always follow
but those who attended the entertain
ment at Odd Fellows Hall Tuesday night
and were fortunate enough to get in, got
the worth of their money. The follow
ing programme was rendered in a highly
artistic manner: Overture, Eureka
Brass Band bass solo, "The Old Sex-
ton," Mr. J. W. Luca reading, "The
Jiners," Mrs. A. G. Russell soprano
solo, "The Song That Reached My
Heart," Mrs. W. H. Clay tenor solo,
"Madahne," Mr. C. A. Mason recita
tion, "HanBibal on the Alps." Mr. N.
Russell trio, "As Pants the Heart,"
Mrs. T. H. Lyles, Mr. W. A. Hilyard,
Mr. J. W. Luca piano solo, Mrs. T. H.
Lyles selections, Eureka Band.
The ladies committee had a lot of
potted flowers and an abundance of
toothsome refreshments which sold like
hot cakes on a cold winters day, and all
who remained after, the exercises had a
delightful time. An interesting feature
was the awarding of the prizes to the
gentlemen who fcold the highest num
ber of tickets, Mr. KellisBowen brought
in $61.00 and was awarded a fine gold
handled umbrella. Mr. Andrew Jack
son brought in $38.00 and received an
elegant gold-headed cane. The Odd
Fellows return thanks to the generous
public for their hearty response to their

Sunday evening after a very logical
and eloquent sermon had been preached
by Rev. J. W. Dunjee, at College New
athens, Ohio. From there he was called
when quite young to take charge of the
Shilo Baptist in Cleveland. After four
years of success there he entered Ober
lin College Seminary in 1886, from there
to Morgan Park, where he staid over
one year, and came to Minneapolis in
Dec. 1888, and has earned muchvpraise
and credit for himself since his arrival.
The Farr band wave a very pleasant
social entertainment at their hall 521
Nicollet ave. last Monday evening. The
hall was crowded with young people
who was treated to the following and

Overture by their band. Rev. J. W.
Dungee was called upon and delivered
a very logical address to his hearers
with much good advice and encourage
ment for the young band instrumental
solo, by Miss Maud Pratt. The band
then rendered music which truly showed
their rapid improvement in an artistic'
way. Mr. R. Pratt and bis sister Miss
Maud, then rendered a very pretty
duett. The Dome quartette then sang
very nicely. Mrs. Pratt and daughter
then sang "The Farmer Girl," as a
duett. Refreshments was then served
in the basement. A number of young
people bad prepared a drama in one act
by which they more than repaid the au
dience for tiieir piesence. Mrs. Farr

Among the graduates of the Minne
apolis Central High School last week
stood one, whom our citizens must rec
ognize with honor. If for nothing more
than the wav she has equiped herself
or the true aggressine spirit she has ex
emplified by spending her youthful day
in study, great credit and honor is due
her. But we find more the short lite
of Miss Mabel Cora Napier to praise her
for. She has been raised in our city
from a little girl, her mother has worked
hard to send her and her sister to school.
Gossip has don its part to discourage and
bethwart their progress. We find her
after a long walk to school and back,
helping her mother in the wash tub,
working hard that her appearance might
be equal to others. We find her burn
ing the mid-night oil, while gossip had
wearied herself to sleep. We can trace
her from one school room to another,
from the bottom round to the goal of a
school girl's ambition, which for her was
the graduating event which took place
in the Grand Opera House in this city
last Friday evening. Miss Napier is a
young lady of about 18 summers, pos
sessing the essence of true womanhood
with an ambition which the future will
only tell its result. No one is more
hearty in their congratulations, or sin
cere in their well wishes of Miss Napier
than THE APPEAL.
THE GREAT SJENGERFEST.
Some Facts About the Big June
Festival to be Held in
The pro gramme for the great North
western seengerfest and Gilmore's jubi
lee festival, to be held in Minneapolis
June 20, 21 and 22, promises a rare and
most exquisite musical treat. Nothing
similar has ever been attempted on so
grand a scale in the Northwest. Nearly
all of the great masters of classical and
modern music are represented on the
programme by selections from their
most popular works, and the leading
performers are all artists of national
reputation. Of course, German music
will be most fully represented, as the
festival is due to German enterprise
but the French and Italian masters will
have no reason to complaun
of having been neglected. Most, *if
not all, of them are on the
programme. Three evening con
certs and two matinees will be given.
All the railroads leading into Minne
apolis have made a rate of one fare for
the round trip, and it is certain that the
great Ssengerfest will attract an im
mense throng of visitors.

Bab" Thinks That Ulan Does Not Un
How willing the general man is to
take all the burdens of femininity on
his shouldera Mankind resumes the
responsibility of corsets and high-heel
ed shoes he troubles himself about
petticoats and he thinks women ought
not to earn their own living. As far as
the last goes I am with him rapturous
ly and enthusiastically. I shake nim
by the hand and ask him to produce a*
man and a brother to earn bread and.
butter and jam forf
every woman who*
hasn't got it From Miss Muffet down
we would all to like sit on the tuffet
and be fed with curds and whey. There*
is no reason in the world why a man
should object to a properly made high
heeled shoe. If it fits you well it
doesn't hurt your foot half as much as
one of those dreadfully broad so-called*
common sense ones in which slender
feet waddle around and are made un
comfortable. The high heel keeps you
out of the mud if you are a small wo
man it adds to your dignity and it is
too altogether womanly-looking for any
thing. Whenever I see, in a hotel cor
ridor, a pair of men's shoes, and just
beside them, waiting to be brushed, ai
pair of common-sense, broad, low-heel
ed abominations, I am always certain
there is a woman in the room who ob
jects to feeing the waiters, who wears~
a loose corset, who is flat-chested and.
won't let her dress-maker put any
cotton in to make her look better, and
who thinks it is perfectly silly in John
to expect to be kissed at any time ex
cept when he is going off on a long trip
or if it should be discovered that he
was dying, and somehow I have an
idea that John himself has long ceased
to hunger for those kisses.
Now, why should a man bother about
the health of petticoats? He doesn't
have to wear them. The Lord didn't
build him so that he was to have them
hung around his hips, and when
made women he did. Those marvels of
lace and silk were thought of, and it
was known that their appearance would
be entirely spoiled if they were slung
from her shoulders by a pair of braces.
Take any wild country wheie civilized
dress is unknown where the natural
woman is found, and you will discover
that she carries her baby on her hips
and a pitcher of water on her head, but
that she slings nothing over her shoul
ders. I think it is only necessary for
mankind to trouble themselves about
the way we wear our petticoats when
we raise an objection to the adjustment
of his trousers. For my own part he
can wear them by a string about his
neck if he wants to, though I don't
think he would look pretty in that way.
and perhaps it would be better for hiim
to stick to his braces. N. Y. Star.

The prairie-dog is no more like a dog
than he is like an elephant Instead of
being a carnivorous canine, with dan
ger in his eye and treachery in his
mind, he is a prairie marmot, achuboy,
fat-paunched ground-squirrel, with a
short tail. He is the jolliest little ro
dent under the sun he is as lively as a
cricket, as watchful as a weasel, and,
to all appearances, as happy as the day
While you are still some distance
from the town you see the inhabitants
running freely about, nibbling at roots
and blades of grass, and foraging at
quite a little distance from their re
spective dwellings but as soon as you
show yourself within a hundred yards
of the municipal suburbs, the alarm is
quietly given and every dog scampers
for his burrow as fast as his stumpy
little legs can carry him.
'On reaching his open door, which is
a six inch hole running down through
the center of a little mound like a
miniature volcano with a bottomless pit
for a crater, he poises himself on the
rim, stands up on his hind-feet so high
and so straight that he looks uncom
monly like a tent peg, and views the
When you get fairly into the town the
holes are found to be as thick as apple
trees in an orchard, and on each of the
mounds, excepting the very nearest,
there will be a prairie-dog, yapping
away at you as if his whole life depend
ed upon his bringing out a hundred and
twenty yaps to the minute. Perhaps
twenty dogs will be barking indus
triously at you in concert, with twenty
tails jerking spasmodically in unison
and twenty pairs of eyes watching you
with keen interest
As you slowly walk forward and cross
the imaginary dead line that the near
est dog has drawn around himself, he
dives head foremost into the bowels of
the earth, and his tail twinkles merri
ly from side to side as his hind feet
When you run forward and apply
your ear to the hole your hear an indis
net snaffling sound, which grows
fainter and fainter, until it finally
ceases, and then you hear his jolly lit
