PRESIDENT HARRISON'S POLICY.
There is an old but homely saying to
this effect: "Don't kick before you are
spurred." The Colored people of
America, for forebearance and long suf
fering, have a historical record that ex
ceeds any thing yet known. They, not
only do not kick be fore they are spuired,
but do not kick hard enough, often
enough, and long enough when their
sides are rowelled.
When, by the will of God, and through
the instrumentality of the Republican
party, the dominant race in this country,
in a measure, repaired the wrongs un
der which a portion of its NATIVES had
Buffered for centuries, by conferring up
on tbem the rights of suffrage, which
they had hitherto withheld by the power
of might, that party tied to itself this
portion of America's native born citizens
by the strongest of ties existing among
their characteristicsGRATITUDE. Erom
the first ballot cast by this portion of the
people of America, to the last, the
masses of them havewhenever they
have been allowed the privilege of cast
ing their ballots as they pleasedproved
their gratitude and faith in the vaunted
Republican principles and have voted
for the Republican candidates. And, to
day, the Republican party would not,
nor could not, be in possession of the
reins of this government, but for the
help of these same citizens. Is it not
reasonable, then, that these people,
whose natural rights are identical with
those of all of America's peoples,'should
feel entitled to, and expect, fair treat
ment from those they helped to put in
power to rule over them. This is not
being giyen,and has not been given at any
time since the birth of the Republican
partj\ But these patient people, waited
on and waited ever still they waited in
-vain. Four years ago the Republicans
found the Democrats strong enough to
^wrench the reins of government from
their hands, owing, in a greater meas
lire than many imagine, to the apathy
of the Colored voters, thousands of
whom neglected to cast their votes.
Last November, this apathy on the part
of Colored voters, gave way to the old
desire for Republican supremacy and
the result was Republican victory again.
The Republican candidate for President
"was supposed to be a Republican in prin
ciple, an honest, fair-minded CHRISTIAN
a believer in the brotherhood of man
one to whom we could look for more
real aid in arresting and suppressing the
inconsistent, inhuman, unjust, damnable
colorjprejudice, which has been the bane
of our existence in this country, which
claims to be the haven of refuge for the
down trodden and oppressed of all na
tions yet, which oppresses and out
rages Its own NATIVE BORN citizens as no
other country on the face of the earth
does, if, by accident of birth, there is
an admixture of African blood in their
composition. Yet, these Anglo-Saxon
-decendents prate of superiority and
God-like atribntes. Upon what food
have these Caesars fed that they have
become so great? Whatever may have
heen that food, for the past two cen
turies, we have been picking up the
rumbg that fell from their tables, and
have been endowed thereby with like
feelings and desires we crave the same
things they do, we are as much entitled
to them as they are they would not
be satisfied with the pittances doled out
grudgingly to us, and WE ARE NOT.
We may be kicking now, before we are
spurned, but the cause of this kick is
the following which appeared in the
Pioneer Press, the leading Republican
paper of the state of Minnesota, last
Saturday, from the pen of its Washing
"Washington, Juue 21.The president
is slowly winning, not only reluctant ap
proval, but genuine sympathy from the
ruling classes in the South by his atti
tude in relation to the race question.
They discover in him a man who com
prehends this question, in its intimate
and recondite aspects, better than any
president since the war. Mr. Cleveland
never understood the race question. It
doesn't exist at Buffalo. It does exist at
Indianapolis, as well as at Washington.
There is a black quarter in that unhappy
city, too, and a sort of human endos
mosis and exosmosh perpetuates the
personal contact with the dusky race
necessary to a complete comprehension
of the race question, as it presents itself
to the Southerner. A few months' res
idence in Washington tends wonderfully
to fortify a Northerners smypathy with
Southern Negrophobist of the past and
present. Indianapolis is quite a little
Washington in this respect. The presi
dent has seen the Negro all his life as
tho frontiersman sees the Indiannot
at all as the spectacled philanthropist of
New England views both races.
Moreover, heredity has done its work
upon the habsts of thought, tendencies
of motive and mental point of view of
Gen. Harrison. We think of him as an
Indiana man and his grandfather as an
Ohioan, forgetting that the Harrisons
were one of the great colonial families
of Virginia, and still stoutly maintain the
traditions of its ancient glories. The
Harrisons hvedin Virginia two centuries
and only swarmed westward two genera
tions ago. This is too short a time for
the destruction of all the sympathies and
antipathies, trained preceptions and ac
cumulated sensations of the ancient
stock. Nobody will ever accuse Gen
Harnsin of political affiliation with the
ruling classes of the South but his social
sympathies run on parallel lines with
theirs, and near enough to exchange
friendly greetings. The president can
be wonderfully frank when it suits his
purpose, and he dealt very honestly
with a party of intelligent Southern
gentlemen who called on him some time
ago to discuss the race question in an
amicable and candid spirit. I only un
dertake to give the spirit of his assur
ance to them.
'Perhaps I comprehend this race
question better than you gentlemen
think, and sympathize with your feel
ings in regard to the Colored people
more than you know. Certainly, in
your place I would feel as you do. Per
sonal contact with an alien race in social,
political and professional life would not
be agreeable to me. I would not like to
see a Negro mayor or postmaster of In
dianapolis, nor representing the power
and authority of the Uuited States in a
figcal or administrative capacity at my
own home. It would not be agreeable
to me to practice my profession before a
Colored federal judge, or to meet a
Negro at the federal bar as United States
attorney. Ido not intend to impose upon
the people of the South conditions
which I would think rather hard if they
were imposed upon me. It is my desire
to do full justice to the Colored people.
They have been made citizens, and our
equals before the law. They are an im
portant element in the party which car
ried the last election. They are entitled
to recognition in the conduct of the
government. They have a right to ex
pect their share of the official patronage.
I have no disposition to ignore them.
But I believe that all their just expecta
tions can be satisfied without placing
them in positions where race instinct is
sure to brew personal bitterness and
social discord. There are places enough
in the public service, embracing as it
does thousands of clerkships, and nearly
ab many comparatively isolated func
tions, like those of the railway mail ser
vice and a multitude of remote special
agencies and inspectorships, in which
Colored persons can perform useful and
honorable service without involving that
personal contact with and official au
thority over white citizens in their own
homes which you and your people find
This conversation is given on the au
thority and memory of a listener whose
deep and grateful interest in the senti
ments declared may have imparted an
unconscious emphasis and exaggeration
into his report. But it is certain that
the policy of the president in making
appointments to office in the South and
elsewhere is such as might have been
expected from an executive holding
these opinions. Qualified Negroes have
been given places in the interior
and other departments and special
agencies in the Northwest. Few
have been named for local offices in the
South, and not one such appointment
has been denounced as offensive by the
whites of the neighborhood interested.
Whatever the president does intend to
do with the Negro, it is pretty clear that
he will not cram him down the Southern
throat.F. A. CARLE.
Of course,^ there may be no truth in
these statements, so far as being the ex
act words or sentiments of President
Harrison and we most earnestly hope
there is not. But, the sentiments here
expressed run so nearly parallel with
the actions of the president in his deal
ings with the Colored people, that a per
fect storm of indignation arose in the
breasts of every Colored person who
has read the article. And THE APPEAL
voices the sentiments of the Colored
people of Minnesota, yes, and of the
United States, in saying that this is the
unkindest cut of all, and one that will
have an effect that will be felt from one
end of this country to the other. The
poor worm will not forever be trodden
upon with impunity. Seven millions of
people with right and justice upon their
side, can do more damage to the Re
publican party than the recent breaking
of the dam did to persons and property
in the Conemaugh valley.
If a Colored man steals a hog, com
mits a rape or murder, or engages in a
riot, he at once takes a conspicious posi
tion in the eyes of the white community
and is regarded with great interest.
The court house is thronged when he is
tried, and even when he passes along
the street in custody of an officer, there
is great curiosity to know what he has
been doing. Thus the white com
munity is constantly being brought in
contact with the offcasts and outcasts of
the Colored peopie, and naturally
enough, forms its conception of all from
the bad conduct of a few. But the re
fined and pleasant homes, the thousands
of benevolent and christian enterprises
that are in constant operation among
Colored people, the well-conducted
churches, schools, colleges, societies and
other civilzing and humanizing instru
mentalities attract almost no attention
from the whites, and, consequently, ex
ert almost no influence upon their idea
of their progress. It is a misfortune to
both races, that the white people are so
constantly forced to witness and learn of
the bad conduct of the saloon-loafers
and criminals of the Colored race and
that they take such pains to keep them
selves from witnessing the decent and
creditable performances of the inteligent
virtuous and industrous ones. The bug
bear of social equalty is the cause of this
unfortunate condition of things, the
white man fearing that he will forfeit
his social standing if he returns the sa
lute of a decent, respectable Colored
man, and feeling that he degrades him
self by sitting on the same bench, eating
at the same table or shaving at the same
shop with his biother in black. Whe
the time arrives when white men will
have as many opportunities to learn of
the good among the Colored people as
of .the bad, this condition of things will
Efforts are making looking toward a
giand celebration by the Colored people
of Minnesota on Aug. 1st, in commemo
ration of the emancipation of the slaves
in the West Indies. There are two days
in each year which, the Colored people
of the United States take pride in cele
brating one is the anniversary of the
day Abraham Lincoln issued his eman
cipation pioclamation, Sept. 22d, and
the other is the above mentioned. Sept.
22d has been celebrated for the past two
years in Minnesota at the Minneapolis
exposition and in all probability will be
celebrated there this year. The 1st of
August has been celebrated several
years by picnics and celebrations got up
under the auspices of some club or soci
ety and a good time has geneially been
the result. This year it is the intention
of the Colored people of the state to
hold the grandest celebration that has
yet occurred in commemoration of that
day. The proper application for the
use of the State Fair Grounds for that
occasion has been made, and in all
probability it will be granted. It then
will only remain for the good ciMzens
to turn out and enjoy the day and the
good things that will be provided for
them. Several prominent speakers have
been engaged for the occasion ani there
will be an amusement programme pre
sented which could not possibly be giv
en anywhere else. We hope to be able
to state more definitely in reference to
the affair next week.
"The cotton crop of 1888 was 7 046,000
bales 85 per cent, of this 5,986,000 bales,
were raised, baled, compressed, wholly
produced and made ready for shipment
by Negro labor, operating as free citi
zens, and impelled to work by the same
motives that move the white man. The
Negro has been the chief laborer in our
iron mines, about our furnaces, mills,
foundries and in our building operations
and the enormous improvement in the
quality of his labor conclusively traver
ses the bald and proofless assertion that
"as a laborer he is a flat and disastrous
failure." The above is from the reply
ot the Chattanooga, (Tenn.) Times to
the speech at the Memphis National
Cemetery on Memorial Day. And Dr.
A. D. Mayo, of Boston, who has just
finished a long tour through the entire
South, says: The Negro seems to me to
be marching on with a steady tread, as
irresistible as the flow of the Mississippi
River, whose occasional overflows,
droughts and eccentricities have little to
do with its onward progress." If such
speeches provoke such replies, would it
not pay well to hire the Memphis idiot
to orate again?
"He pointed to the lands of the South,
ruined by ignorant slave labor, not for
the mere sake of fault finding, but to
show that 'a race which has not yet
learned the arts of a common laborer is
not yet fitted for the prerogatives of a
sovereign'"' The above is from the
Memphis Avalanche's eulogistic notice
of Maj. EJgington's speech on Decora
tion Day. The condition of the lands in
the South is not due to the Colored race,
as their management has been in tne
hands of white race. Since emancipa
tion the production of those lands has
enormously increased and their value
has done the same. In every respect,
the prosperity ef the South, has been
"ft nS^U^ %J* Jilt. *J
wonderfully enhanced aince the con
ferring of suffrage upon Colored men.
Still if there are those who wish to re
vert to the ancient order of things, they
can make a start in that direction by
tearing up the railroads, demolishing
the school houses, and exercising "the
prerogatives of a Sovereign" of ignor
ance, dirt and degradation.
Senator Blair writes to Col. J. C. Good
loe of Alabama: "Every one in the
party desires the accession of greater
numbers. Naturally they must come
from the white people since the Colored
are nearly all with us alreadyand yet
the church is not full. We do not
however intend to turn out those whom
we already have in our communion."
Certainly not, Senator, for by so doing
you would lose Ohio, Indiana, New
York and Pennsylvania, and the church
would soon become nearly empty.
Moreover, tha Democratic church
yearns for all that you turn out. We
Colored folks know that when you turn
us out, you turn the Democracy in.
Col. Brice would givftus all the offices
we wanted if we woulji turn those states
over to him. But we are not that kind
The Huntsville Gazette says: "It is
reported that Colored people of Rich
mond, Va., have organized an independ
ent party, to whose membership no
white man will be admitted." We do
not believe the statement, because we
think the Colored peeple of Richmond
have too much sense to do anything of
the kind. Such a party would be as
lonesome "as a young salmon on the top
of the great pyramid" and as much out of
place. Neither Colored nor any other
kind of people can be independent with
out wealth, inteligence and other re
sources to make them so, and an at
tempt of the kind on the part of Colored
people would result in failure, and,
sides provoke similar action upon the
part of the whites.
"If there was more attention paid to
business and less to politics the country
would be better off, and each community
would further its best interests if it
would take every white man out and
put a red stripped jacket on him, who
sneakingly slips around and makes
speeches to the Negroes at night, there
by arrayiDg them against the whites."
The above specimen of moral science
and political economy is from the "Rip-
shaw," a little sheet published at Wynn,
a little hamlet somewhere in the inter
ior of Arkansas. It needs no comment
but shows how the "unpremeditated"
outbreaks in the South are instigated

The Eight-Hour Picnic.
The programme for the picnic of the
eight-hour league at the state fair
grounds on the Fourth of July is about
completed. Among the speakers are
Rev. L. G. Powers of Minneapolis, C. S.
Darrow, of Chicago, Rev. John M. Hen
derson of the St. James M. E. church
and President W. M. Bushnell of the
State Agricultural society. Thyle &
Ringwald's band, Prof. J. W, Lucas's
quartette, and Mons Baker will furnish
music. The athletic programme will in
clude two base ball games, bycicle and
foot races, tug-of-war, greased pig chase,
etc. Prof. Duplesis will act as judge.
Besides this there will be a parade of
the Twin City labor organizations and a
display of fireworks in the evening.
Two halls have been provided for danc

big time is expected. The Operetta.
Whatever may have been the expec
tations of the friends of the performers
in the operetta of The Belle of Saratoga
they were fully equalled by the superb
manner in which it was presented on
last Tuesday. The beautiful hall con
tained an audience that was nothing like
as laige as the merit of the perfomance
warranted, but it made up in generous
appreciation and applause for the lack
in numbers. Why the most meritorious
things receive the poorest encourage
ment and patronage among Colored peo
ple is one of the mysteries Those who
were present labt Tue&day were fully re
paid. The principals all sustained their
parts admirably but if special credit is
due to any, that honor belongs to Mrs.

Ninety persons communed, that is the
largest number that ever communed on

we remember that over 500 communed

of Quinn Chapel, and last year raised
more money than has ever been raised
in one year at any western church.
A good congregation was present at
night, Rev. Knight again paeached with
power and the Holy Ghost. Don't you
know that a good, thoughtful congrega

is a good preacher. Every preacher

springing up at Chicago and trying to
form churches, the ministers and chris

Several carriages drove up to the
church Sabbath evening and therefrom
stepped about twelve gentlemen from

SCENES AT MONTE CARLO.
A Picture of the Casino and Votaries of
the Roulette Table.
Charming for a week's or a fort
nights visit, Monte Carlo is insupport
able beyond that time. If you are tir
ed of the concertsand one can not be
listening to the music every evening
if you do not gamble, if you know by
heart the salles de jeu and the people
who throng them, if you have read the
newspapers in the reading-roomwhat
can you do with yourself for the rest of
the evening? Your only resource is to
smoke a cigar in the atrium, which is
somewhat akin to "behind the scenes"
of a theater. You see in the atrium
something of every thing, and types
which you had not noticed in the gam
bling rooms. Here are the women not
respectable enough, in the opinion of
the administration, to be favored with a
carte $ entree. You ask yourself what
these unfortunate outsiders can possibly
have done, when you see the people
who are admitted to the rooms and
who promenade them like queens! Be
sides these, you see in the atrium the
persons who are waiting for the gam
blers of both sexes who have promised
to bring them their winnings in order
not to risk losing them again. The people
who are owed money and who
are waiting to be paid also form
a numerous contingent This gentle
man walking so fast, without a hat, has
come to smoke a cigar, to see if that
will "change the luck." The money
lenders of both sexes swarm in the
atrium to-night, for they have learned
that a young Marquis, concerning
whose means they are perfectly well in
formed, has lost, in less than half an
hour, forty-five thousand francs, and all
before dinner, too! Poor Marquis! he
is obliged to ask one of the crewa
horrible ruffianto dine with him at
the Hotel de Paris, and at the public
table! The affair will be talked about
during dessert Not over proud, the
Marquis! Upon this divan, near the
door leading out of the salle dejeu, sits
the mamma who is looking out for an
establishment for hfer daughter. It is
a good position, this. No one can go
out without being seen. Sometimes,
also, you are a witness of terrible
scenes. You hear fragments of angry
dialogue between husband and wife:
"You have completely ruined me, mis
erable!" "I will ask them not to let
you enter the hall again!" "You have
taken my ear-rings, you thief!" This
handsome young man, with a decora
tion in his coat, threatens an elderly
woman because she will not give him
her bracelet to pawn for another turn at
Another revolting sight is the num
ber of children whom their parents
leave in the atrium, while they go to
gamble. One shudders at the thought
of what these poor children are ex
posed to, at the idea of what they may
see and hear. Two divans seem to be
reserved for them and every now and
then their parents come to see what
they are doing. The little boys are
dressed in English fashion, and the
little girls in the Kate Greenaway style,
with large bonnets such as were worn
under the Directoire. They make
friends of one another, and talk about
their parents. "Mamma lost six thou
sand francs," says one. "My papa lost
ten thousand!" said another. "We
haven't enough money to take us back
to Parisor to London!" added a third
"papa has telegraphed to grandpapa to
send us some money!" But they have
something to do besides gossip. Some
times you see them, book in hand,
learning their lessons. At other times,
toward ten o'clock at night overcome
by fatigue, you will find them stretched
on the divan fast asleep. I asked an
English boy of twelve who was spin
ning atop in his hand why he and his
sister did not go to bed. They were
living at a hotel, had no servant and
(said the child) their parents did not
like to leave them alone! So every
night these poor children waited in thja
atrium until the gambling was over or
their parents' "cleaned out There
are children who occasionally have to
do servant's work. I have seen some
little Russians going to buy something
for breakfast The parents did not
dare to go to the charcutier's them
selves and were ashamed to let their
servants go.Cor. San Francisco Ar
