HTERED AT POSTOPFICE AS SECOO-CLASS MATTES'
The Republicans of Belle County,
Texas, on July 1st, adopted the follow
ing among other resolutions-
"Resolved, That we recognize with
pride the distinguished services of Hon*
N.W. Cuney as the Texas member of
the National Republican Committee,
and that his education, business capacity
and past services to the Republican
party eminently entitle him to recogni
tion by President Harrison, and that his
appointmen as Collector of the Port of
Galveston would be a selection emi
nently fit to be made.
Resolved, That we deprecate any ef
fort being made to divide the Republi
can party of this State upon the "coloi
line," but all Republicans should act to
gether in the futuie as in the past, for
the best interests of the country."
Any division of the Republican party
on the color line is impossible. A few
cranks have tiied to effect it, but the ef
fort has been a miserable failure. The
brainy white were of the party know
that such a division would be disastrous
and the party is managed by statesmen,
not by the little noisy tricksters who are
doing the howling.
Governor Lowery, of Mississippi,
pranced like a young stallion, and danced
like a dervish, and swore that Sullivan
and Kilrain should not fight in his baili
wick, but public opinion was against
him, and the fight came oft in Missis
sippi. The gallant Missippians did not
propose to lose their fun and, doubtless,
had laid aside their shot-guns and
slaughtered but few Republicans within
the last month or so, in anticipation of
an event affording a pleasing change of
pregramme. The governor has, how
ever, waked up and we hope will show
the same vigor in denouncing the native
roughs that he manifested upon this
occasion. He has incurred a big expense
for militia and made himself ridiculous
in eveiy sense of the word. The fight,
in a moral sense, was a big improve
ment upon many Mississippi perform
ances. The prize-ring rules at least give
both parties a show tne Mississippi
rules, in their actual operation, are far
Senator Morrill, in an article in the
Forum, asserts that there are "strong
Whig sentiments and traditions" still in
the South which will eventually build
up the Republican party there. The
Senator is in error. The Republican
party has long since abolished all of
Southern people who adhered to those
sentiments and traditions, and the Dem-
ocracy have captured those who did not
adhere to them. An attempt has been
made to build up the party by parading
its strain of old Whiggers, bvt not one
convert has been made through that
means. The only means that can be
made effective to build up the Republi-
can party in the South, is to put an end
to fraudulent elections, ballot-box steal-
ings and mob violence Federal
supervision of of Federal elections,
and the passage of the Blair bill are the
true remedies, no attempts should be
made to galvanize the old Whig

price of admission to the grounds is only
25 cents, round trip tickets on the rail
roads only 25 cents, making the whole
expense only 50 cents, the cheapest rate
ever yet given for a like occasion.
Trains pass the grounds every half hour
and one may go out or return when he
pleases. This is no money-making
scheme, but a day of enjoyment for all
and the small admission fee charged is
merely to cover the necessary expenses
in connection with the celebration.
LATESTJust as we were closing our
forms we received notice of the accept
of Archbishop John Ireland to de

one knows Archbishop Ireland has a

the fact that he is to speak will of itself
draw thousands to the grounds. More

Joe Johnson, Colored, was examined
by Special Judge J. T. O'Neal Saturday
on the charghe of an attempt to rape
Lilly Bennett, a little Colored girl, at
the home of her parents and in the very
next room to where the family were
seated at the supper table, the door
being open. The case was puzzling.
Both the girl's mother and the acused
told what seemed to be straightforward
stories, but which were contradictory,
and it was evident someone was fore
sworn. Judge O'Neal summed up by
saying that such offenses were getting to
be too common and that from their na
ture there was always meager testimony.
But the offenders must be made to un
derstand that they could not get off
without a searching investigation, and
so he held Johnson under 200 bond to
Pumped out a Feigning Suicide.
New York, July 14.Jennie Sutton, a
young Colored girl living at 110 West
Twenty-seventh street, has been more
or less trouble to her mother for some
time past. On Saturday night she went
to her room, daubed some flour on her
face, placed a bottle on a table, and
the cork on her bed, lay down, put on
an idiotic expression, closed her eyes,
gave two or three shrieks and waited.
The result was all that she desired. The
mother came running in followed by
some of the neighbors. One glance at
the girl, another at the empty bottle on
the table immediately solved the whole
difficulty in their minds. When the
girl grunted deeply they all howled in
unison, while some fainted. One clear*
headed man rushed out and summoned
a policeman. The officer sprinted to the
station house and, had a hurry call sent
for an ambulance. After the girl had
hurriedly been placed in it, the ambu
lance tore back to the hospital. Arrived
there, not a moment was lost. Dr. Cobb
seized a stomach pump, stuck one end
down her throat and began to work en
ergetically. She kicked and squirme:,
but the doctor kept heroically at work.
When an examination was made later
it was found that the girl had taken no
poison of any kind. When the girl waB
brought to the Jefferson Market court
on a charge of attempted suicide, the
whole story came out, backed up by the
certificate from Dr. Cobb. The girl wa&

Bishop Brown's Reception.
Monday night Bishop J. M. Brown
D. D., D. C. L., was tendered a recep
tion at the St. James A. M. E. Church,
corner Fulleiyand Jay streets. The
church was comfortably filled, and every
one present spent an enjoyable evening.
The young folks of the Sabbath School
presented a two-act comedietta eutitled
"My Turn Next." The piece was ad
mirably rendered. Misses Jackson,
James and Griswold and Messrs. James
and Francis acquitting themselves very
creditably. After^the play refreshments
were served and the remainder of the
evening was devoted to social inter
course. The bishop, in a short, but im
pressive manner, thanked the people
for the cordial way in which he had been
received. Bishop J. M. Brown is about
60 yeaas of age, and is a graduate of
Oberlin college. In 1880 he represented
the A. M. E. Church of America at the
ecumenial conference in London. His
present bishopric includes Michigan,
Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, low a, Min
nesota, Dakota, Wyoming and Montana.
His residence is at Washington, D.
and he Is now a prominent candidate
for chaplain of the next congress.
Tribute toHon.Edmond Rice.
Editor of THE APPEAL: I wish to ex
press through the columns of your paper
the sense of deep and sincere sorrow
felt by the Colored citizens of St., Paul
in the death of the late ex-Congressman
Edmond Rice. Of his pure patriotism,
noble and generous charity and love of
humanity all are awaie, while on all
questions regarding our race in St. Paul,
he proved himself a true and tried
friend. To his efforts aie largely due
the good standing, advancement and
elevation which characteiizethe Colored
citizens of St. Paul, and a few of his
actions having in view the advance
ment of our people may here be ie
I remember that while mayor of this
city in 1883, some of our Colored citizens
called upon him and asked for the ap
pointment of a Colored policeman. His
answer was: "I desire to give your race
the same consideration as all others.
Send me a man of your race, recommend
ed by jou, and I Mill appoint him."
They sent Mr. William Thomas. He
wab the first Colored citizen that held a
positon underlie city government.
Mr. I. W. Evans superceded Mr.
Thorns, Mr. Louis Liverpool superceded
Mr. Evans, Mr. Thos. Jefferson super
ceded Mr. Liverpool, in November,
1885. The Colored citizens petitioned
the boaid of fire commissioners foi a
Colored fire company. The petition was
read and placed on file, and remained
there for three long years, and was only
resurrected through a personal letter
written by this generous-hearted man,
who alwaj was ready to help the op
pressed and downtrodden. Hence the
present chemical fire company No. 4.
This generous-hearted man also contri
buted largely to the establishment of the
"Western Appeal," the only Colored
newspaper in the Northwest. The Col
ored citizens of this city organized a
Colored military company, who styled
themselver the Rice guards, after the
name of this good man.
Now, Mr. Editor, it can be seen that
never at any time did the Colored citi
zens call upon Mr. Rice that he did not
give to them the rights he felt justly be
longing to them. He also accepted an
invitation and delivered the welcome
address to the African Grand Lodge of
Masons, who convened here in our city
Sept. 1, 1885. will ever live in the
memory of these people. May peace be
unto his ashes. THOMAS H. LYLES.
Pilgrim Baptist Church.
Sunday morning being cool and pleas
ant, the members and friends started
early to wend their way to the house of
God. A sermon from the text,"I am
the bread of Life," was preached by
Bro. S. Washington, to which all listened
with wrapt attention. All that were
present were well pleased. In the af
ternoon at 3 o'clock the funeral sermon
of Sister Josephine Morgan who depart
ed this life Thursday, July 11, was
preached by,*Elder Sheafe, assisted by*
Elder Henderson. Bishop Brown was
also present, and offered a very touch
ing prayer. Sister Morgan was also a
great worker in the church and Sabbath
school, but for six years her health has
been failing. She was married to Bro.
Chas. Morgan about two years ago*. She
bore her sickness which terminated in
her death with much grace and Chris
tian fortitude. Sister Morgan was 38
years of ageJ The husband has lost a
wife, the mother a daughter but she
has gained heaven. Brother Morgan's
employers were present Sunday after
noon at the fqneral, and were very much
impresssd by what was said of the de
ceased. There was a large congregation
in the evening, and every one thought
the Elder preached a good sermon.
Sister Kirklepr, desiring to join the
Baptist church because cf her hus
band being i member there, was re
ceived on profession of her faith, having
received a y^ry creditable letter from

the usual collection, the congregation
kindly gave Elder Sheafe $6.80. thus en-
abling him to spend a few days at White
The Cantata rendered last Tuesday
and Wednesday evenings at the church,
was a success in every sense of the word
the participants deserve to be congratu
lated. Many of the friends were disap
pointed because it was not repeated
Thursday evening. No small share of
the congatulations is due to the children
who so nobly did their part in making
the Cantata a success.

Gone to his Reward.
The people of St. Paul suffered an lr
repairable loss by the death of Hon. Ed
mund Rice, which occurred last week.
Mr. Rice was one of the pioneers of the
Northwest, and was well known in busi
ness, professional and political circles
thioughout the state. He was born in
Vermont in 1819 and was therefore 70
years old at the time of hisdeath,which
was caused by softening of the biain.
He was very friendly disposed toward
the Colored people, and had many warm
friends among them.
His career in politics included seivice
in the territorial and state legislatures,
in both blanches of the latter, as mayor
of St. Paul and as member of congress
He was a member of the teiritonal leg
islature in 1851. In 1864 he waa elected
to the state senate, and again in 1874.
He AY as a member of the house of repre
sentatives in 1867, 1872,1S77, and 1878
In 1881 he was elected mayor of St. Paul
and served until 1883. He was again
chosen in 1885, and his term had not ex
pired when he was elected in November
1886, as member of conjuess from the
Fourth district. He resigned his office
as mayor of St. Paul in Febiuary, 1877,
prior to going to Washington to enter
upon his duties as congressman. He
served his term in the national congress
and wss a candidate for re-election
against Capt. S. P. Snider, at the last
election, though at the solicitation of his
party and against his own wishes.
He was populai among men of all sta
tions, and although a democrat, his po
litical opponents could find no words to
say against him. His funeral occuned

Ex-Gov. Lewis E. Parsons of Alabama
has been stopping at the Westthis week.
In an interview with one of the Tribune
reporters, he said as to the Negro of the
South he did not think that they are yet
prepared to use the ballot intelligently,
and believed it will be along time before
the Colored man reaches the stage of en
lightenment which will entitle him to the
franchise. Mr. Parson received his po
sition as governor by process of appoint
ment from President Johnson during
the days of reconstruction. The Colored
people that were under him clearlv re
member the assistance they received
from this man. Let the distinguished
gentleman become a candidate for some
office requiring the votes of the laymen
of'the South then he will plainly per
ceive their enlightenment and ability to
use the ballot intelligently. Just such
men as he are the stumbling blocks to
our progress in the South and North.
