HTERBD AT POSTOFFJCE AS SECOND-CLASS IATTER
SATURDAY, JUNE 22, 1889.
A special frond Columbia, S. de
scribes a homicide of yeiy unusual char
acter, the killing of Alfred Prolean by
Cornelius Means, both Colored men,
The weapon used was a double-barrel
shotgun. Seven buckshot entered the
victim's arm between the elbow and the
shoulder, breaking the limb in three
places. Five buckshot took effect in the
body just below the armpit, inflicting a
wound which the examining physician
pronounced sufficient to produce death.
Means was about 15 feet from his victim,
and as the latter fell to the ground, he
xushed upon him and struck him three
heavy blows with the butt of the gunthe
upon the forehead, breaking the weapon
at the breech. Returning to the house
in front of which he had fired, Means
laid by his gun and got his pistol. Then,
standing over the now dead body, he
pointed the pistol downward and fired
once, the ball entering the wooden
bridge upon which the corpse lay. Pro
lean had seduced Means' daughter, who
was a well educated girl. "We have hun
dreds of Colored fathers who ought to do
just what Means did, riddle the scoun
drels, white or black, who seduce their
daughters, with buckshot and there will
be some protection for Colored females.
A Colored girl can scarcely reach ma
turity before a pack of dirty hyenus of
both races is on her track. The proper
remedy for such a state of things is buck
shot administeied as they were by the
It is truly marvelous to observe the
coolness and carelessness with which
respectable journals, which ought to
have some occasional glimmerings of
common sense, attempt to impress the
most atrocious nonsense upon what they
speak of as the Negro. For instance,
the Arkansas Gazette says in a recent
issue: "That man who will disabuse
the Negro's mind of the idea that he is
in any way benefited by being 'repre
xesented on the ticket,' will do him a
good service. It doesn't benefit one
Negro in the least conceivable manner
to elect another to office." The Ga
zette would not dare to print those two
sentences and substitute the word Irish
man or German for Negro. We may
eugget to the Gazette how it may itself
"disabuse the Negro's mind." The
plan is simply to demonstrate to the
Negro that he is not benefitted by
breathing the same air, drinking the
same water and eating the same food
that benefit the white man. The incon
sistency of the Gazette reminds one of
that of the slaveholders, who always
argued that freedom was a curse to the
Negro, yet, whenever a Negro perform
ed some great service to the community
they usually rewarded him by setting
him free. An instance in point is the
case of the Negro who saved St. Mich
aels church in Charleston S. C.
Charles Hendley, editor of the Hunts
*ville, Ala., Gazette, and Grand Secretary
of Colored Masons in that state, has
been appointed by the President as Re
clever of Public Moneys at Huntsville.
Hon. D. W. Ellison whose appointment
ire recently commended, has for many
years been Grand Treasurer of Colored
Masons in Arkansas. The Presidedt
will not be apt to err in his appoint
ments if he selects men who have been
selected by Colored men as their repre
sentatives and who have been trusted
and triedjand alwaysjfound faithful. Both
of the above men were of the class we
have mentioned. Men who have been
for years building up enterprises among
the Colored people. It is a fact that
many who claim to be our representa
tives cannot cite an instance in which
they have done anything in relation to
the Colored race that did not result im
mediately and directly in putting money
in their purses.
The success of Chandler in
race for the senate is a
subject for congratulation for
Colored race of America. Some
the hardest and most effective blows
struck for us by the really great men of
the country were the blows of Chandler.
Mr. Chandler is an experienced public
servanttried and true in the broadest
and best sense, That such a man had
enemies, reasonable and well meant,
perhaps, goes without the saying. Men
like Chandler see principles, not people
and move with a courage that takes no
account of the individual. It is indeed
a gratifying sight that they are occasion
ally popular enough to be elected or ap
pointed to fill the leading positions in
At last full management oi the affairs
of the Johnstown sufferers goes exclus

Gen. Hastings is really at the helm with
Gov. Beaver, of course the responisble
head. We know Gen. Hastings of old.
He is the man who made the admirable
speech placing the name of John Sher
man before the Chicago convention for
presidential honors, and can be depend
ed upon for serviceable conduct in try
ing times. Hastings, like Grant, is a
man for instant, vigorous action he will
see to it that everything possible is done
to alleviate the affliction so heavily laid
upon the citizens of the Central and
Western part of the Keystone State.
Levi W. Brown, of Ohio, recently ap
pointed to be consul of the United
States at Glasgow, may not be an ideal
man for the place. However, when we
recollect that George Bain, the St. Lou
is miller, had strong indorsers for this
consulship, we think President Harri
son has done well in this instance.
Bain is the republican who said a few
years ago that "he would not serve on a
committee with a nigger."
Botany Bay, or some Siberian point, is
berth for you, Mr. Bain.
The fact that a state as reliably repub
lican as Ohio, has had a Democratic sen
ator at Washington for a decade or so, is
one of the political anomalies of the
times. The grand old Buckeye State is
on her good behavior, though, thisyear,
and intends to send to Columbus a first
class legislature, which in turn will do
its duty and place at the capital of the
country a man worthy to keep company
with the giant Sherman.
Quite a commotion was created last
week in St. Louis, when several married
ladies who have taught in the city
schools were notified that they would
not be reappointed next year. The hus
bands of these ladies are principals in
the St. Louis schools and the Teachers'
committee think the young ladies of the
community ought to have a cbance. The
principals, however, will try hard to
have the order revoked.
Ex-Gov. Cameron, Gen. Grover, Mr.
Brady and others present a sensible
plan for action in the Virginia campaign.
Its characteristic feature lies in the
fact that the voter is to be a freeman in
all that the word implies. And in this
line is Republican success for the Old
Dominion just as sure as a ballot is ta

Thursday evening for the benefit of St.
St. James church was a fairly successful

Wednesday was the loth anniversary
of the wedding day of Mr. and Mrs. J.

friends possession of his house. As no
one went to Mrs. Liggins'as per arSt.

there they found the house full. It was

The Colored Champion.
Ever since it was known that Peter
Jackson the Australian heavy-weight
champion was coming to St. Paul, the
folks here were in a fever to see the
great slugger and on last Monday eve
ning Turner Hall was filled with his
admirers. The affair was under the
management of the genial Billy Wells.
There were set-tos between Dominick
Barnes and Jimmy Nevins, Jimmy
Smith and Barney Smith, John Donald
son and Tom Lees and the Maguhn
brothers. The Findley Quartette sang
some fine selections and Chas. Edwards
gave a song and dance and then the
event of the evening was announced a
four-round set-to between Jackson and
Cardiff. The cheering was loud and
long when the victor and vanquished
appeared on the stage and their exhibi
tion was very satisfactory. Cardiff has
made many friends by the gentlemanly
way in which he acted toward Jackson
during his visit here. After the exhibi
tion a reception to Jackson was held at
the White Elephant No. 106 E. 5th
street and the proprietors Messrs.
Miller and Baty did themselves proud
in the manner in which they entertained
Jackson and his friends. They had en
gaged the Eureka Brass Band which
discoursed music, the Findley Quartette
sang, solos were lendered by Prof. J.
W. Luca and Mr. George Adams. Fluid
refreshments were plentiful and theMrs.
affair wound up with a nice lunch.
Jackson says he had the finest time
here of any place he has visited since
he left the coast and promises to return
in the fall.

Our hearts were made glad Sunday to
see among us again Mrs. Wilson, sick
ness having kept her at home last
Sunday. Prof. Coleman, who is well
known to many of the citizens, stirred
and touched many hearts by the solo
that he sang. It was, "Jesus is Mine."
He also assisted us in our children's ex
ercises in the afternoon, which was the
feature of the day. The church was
well filled. St. James school came in a
body in response to our cordial invita
tion. The worthy Supt. Mr. T. H.
Lyles delivered a very interesiing and
address which was well re
ceived. The children and their teachers
deserve much credit, for the program
was truly delightful. The little folks
sang for all they were worth, their
hearts were in it. Collection was $10.

Historical Illustrations of the Influence of
Man's Imitative Faculty.
Within ten days after the suicide of a
man in a full-dress suit in this city
three similar cases were reported in
other parts of the country, and doubt
less others will follow as a result of
these. The influence of morbid imita
tion in causing what seem to be epi
demics of crime against the person or
property of others is equally potent in
determining' not only the number but
the character or method of suicidal
The murderous criminal, whether
suicidal or homicidal is invariably one
in whom appetite and instinctthe es
sentially animal qualitiespredominate
over the will in whom reason and judg
ment are subordinate to imagination
and impulse. He is the result of an
human development which
favors and fosters an abnormal devel
opment of the mimetic faculty, shared in
common with the monkey by unculti
vated, uneducated man. Students of
this class of crime have accumulated
multitudes, of illustrations of the influ
ence of the mimetic faculty. In his
"Anatomy of Suicide" Dr. Winslow
furnishes a curious collection
them the following:
"Some years ago a man banged himself on
the threshold of one of. the doors of the corri
dor at the Hotel des Invalldes No suicide had
occurred in the establishment for two years
previously, but in the supceeding fortnight five
invalids hanged themselves on the same cross
bar, and the governor was obliged to shut up
Lecky. in his history of European
Morals," recounts among the epidemics
of purely insane suicides that strange
mania which raged in the Neapolitan
districts from the end of the fifteenth
to the end of the seventeenth century,
the victims of which "thronged in mul
titudes toward the sea, and often, as
the blue waters opened to their view,
they chanted a wild hymn of welcome
and rushed with passion into the
waves." An epidemic of mimetic sui
cide occurred among the women of Mi
letus, who killed themselves in great
numbers because their husbands and
lovers were detained by the wars. This
epidemic, like a similar one among the
women of Lyons, was only checked by
an order that the bodies of all suicides
should bo dragged naked through'the
streets and exposed in the public mar
If the dress-suit suicide continues to
grow in popularity it may be necessary
to check it by threatening to expose
the bodies of its victims in unfashiona
ble and badly-fitting garments. This
seems to be about the only kind of ar
gument that will appeal to intellects of
the dress-coat type.Chicago News.
