Wednesday morning the case of
City of St. Paul vs. Hattie Milton
Ella Akers, for violation of City
nnce 97, was tried in the municipal court
lawyer McGhee appeared for the de
pendents and the City Attorney for the
the prosecution. After hearing the
evidence and the arguments of counsel
the court found the defendants guilty
and assessed a fine of $10. In this con
nection attention is called to the fact
that this was the third time defendants
were brought in for this offence, and in
all cases of third violation the fine has
heretofore been $100 and imprisonment
Hence it was by reason of attorney
McGhee's manner of conducting the
case in trying, citing authorities and
argument that the defendant got off so
lightly especially when $150 had been
deposited as security. Truly the Col
ored man can do much in hi own be

We must love in order to understand
love. One act of charity will teach us
more of the love of God, than a thou

God's love, and become Chnst-hke.

love and harmony in our covenant
meeting San Jay morning, it was a day
of goood things, the attendance was large
and God's spirit was there in our midst.
The Sunday school was largely atttended
the classes were nicely arranged, the
new Bibles were on hand and used for
the first time. Our superintendant gave
each class ten cents some time ago, as
capital to invest for the benefit of the
school. Last Sunday these talents were
called in. The amount gotten by the
different classes was about $20 there was
no class but what did something. This is
simply a beginning, other efforts are on
foot now to help. Sunday evenin 4 found
the church well filled at an early hour.
The pastor preached fiom Luke 15-4 5,6
verses, subject, the "Good Shepherd,"
the choir caught the spirit of the serman
and sang heartily. Our leader Mrs. B.
H. Wilson sang very sweetly, that rich
hymn, "Ninety and Nine," that hymn
has led hundreds to the haven of rest.
Tbe congregation fully appreciates the
efforts that are put forth by all in the
church. The right-hand of fellowship was
given to sister Sarah Goodnight and Bro.
Albert Jenkins, two others applied for
admission, all are referred to tne dea

that was tendered the pastor by Mr.

The people of St Louis in common
with those of other localities, are anxieus
to know what course Hon. John M.Clinton,

Republican, but can he support Mahone
for Governor? And it is quite sure that
the little General cannot be elected
without the brainy Langston's help. Of
course we shall soon see what we will

firewood was worked for a time by a
Colored resident of Starke, Fla. He put

Humane Mr. Keenan.
The Humane Society succeeded in
having J. A. Dent fined $ 25 last week
and recommended the shooting of his
horses to relieve them of suffering.
Bro. Keenan can add more scalps to bis
belt by visiting the 22d street station of

that come there pulling express
wagons. Oh! these are horses of white
men and they are all right. Humanity
makes no distinction on account of color
and we trust Bro. Keenan will not.*
