William Waddell the Wonder.
At a picnic in Angust Mr. William
Waddell had a few chunks of lead shot
into his anatomy but it did not seem to
trouble him very much as be was around
as chipper as ever in a few days. Not
many days ago he was assailed and
knocked on the head with a club, Last
Saturday Ike Booker, who had it in for
him, ran upon him on Minnesota street
and opened fire with a 44 bulldog. The
first shot had no effect. He fired again.
Waddell's good hand was in his right
breeches pocket at the time. The bul
let tore through the fleshy part of that
hand and struck a silver dollar in the
pocket. The force of it raised a big
bruise on Waddell's thigh, but it did
not cut through the cloth, and was found
afterward in the pocket. Waddell fled
into the saloon and followed by Booker
who fired a third time he missed Wad
dell, the bullet landing in the calf of
George Morton's right leg. Policeman
Lynch collared Booker just as he was
about to shoot again. Waddell was also
arrested, and Morton who was more
seriously wounded, was taken home.
Waddell was out last Monday well
as usual. The case was tried Thursday,
Waddell was discharged and Booker was

There is never a pause in our pro
gress toward eternity, we do rejoice in
that thought and take a firmer grasp on
to the Spirits sword. Our prayer meet
ings were of special iuterst and power,
we realize from time to time the import
ance of prayer, its place in our lives, its
power and influence over us all, there
fore we are constrained to praise Je
hovah for such a boon. Wednesday
evening is the time when we just let the
Lord sp ak by his word to us, this is one
of the best meetings of the week, don't
miss it, as long as we are willing to
prayerfully study the wordSatan is in
dangerGod thinks no better of a tree
for being bvrdened with rotten fruit,
nor of a church for being swollen in
numbers by base pretenders, this is our
conviction and upon this we mean to
live, pray and labor, onlv purity of heart
and life can command the presence and
power of our exalted Lord. There was
a very interesting and profitable meet
ing of the literary Monday evening,
there was a good number present and
great interest manifested. Officers
elected, Pres. Mr. Geo. James, Vice
Pres. Mr. J. Thornton, Sec. Mr. Cbas.
Miller, other officers were elec ed whose
names have not reached us as yet. Onr
worthy president who served so well
last winter and spring, made a neat
little speech, and in it declared his de
termination to make the literary a suc
cess in every way, he calls for the hearty
co-operation of all, and we expect to
give it him. The ladies of Pilgrim are
contemplating a Fair on a grand scale
for the last of Nov. We want and mean
to have every lady in the church and
society do something for this special ef
fort, the gentlemem of course are not
left out. That extra meeting of last Sun
day is one long to be remembered. It
was one of those sad and yet happy sea
sons, the holy spirit rested upon all, we
were so truly one with each other that
the occasion was hallowed. Manifesta
tions of grief was on every hand, pastor
and people gave away to their truer and
better natures. The prayers, the feel
ings and struggles that went on in the
the secret chambers of the hearts, will
never be known here, suffiice it to say.
Pastor Sheafe decided to remain with
Pilgrim and do for it all within his pow
er, with God's h3lp and that of the peo
ple's success is sure. Did you ever sing
a hymn and feel it? We sang as never
before "Blessed be the Tie that Binds."
That tie between pastor and people was
made doubly strong, we realize better
than ever our relation one tr the other.
We request the prayers of all of God's
people, that we may be one until the
Lord of the vineyard orders a change.

THE RAGE PROBLEM
As Viewed by an Inteligent,
Progressive Colored Man
of the Saintly City.
Able Arguments Advanoed.
ST. PAUii, Sept. 19"To the Editor:
The peace of a great nation is again
shocked with the bloody scenes and
tumults of the second '"race war," and
we do not see the application of any
remedy, neither practical nor theore
tical, advanced by the enlightened
masses of the North- It is the out
breaking of the same old disease that
r^k us South for sunp.HmVA^fta1flfe.&<^Uix."i-*.Tff for suceswye^ead^W'!^t%
For any jonrnal to assert that two
nations cannot live peaceably together,
as man and man, in a civilized country,
is infinitely apsurd. There is, perhaps,
no nation in the world but what has
dumped its refuse upon the shores of
America, so that there has never been
a time when thib republic was occupied
by but two nations. More than two
centuries the colored man labored un
der whip and lash, under the fetter
and chain that ate his flesh, and the
trickling blood enriched the soil that
he tilled! No people now living upon
American soil have done more for the
development of this country from the
reign of the first of the Stuarts, until
the "military necessity," when more
than one hundred thousand were put
under arms to prevent a dissolution of
I am a colored man, son of a soldier,
and, as such, I have the welfare of my
suffering brethren at heart. This per
plexing state of affairs grow more
complicated as the years go by. and
long ago merited national interference.
The government made no provision for
the maintenance and welfare of these
uewly made citizens it did not even
remove them from under the iron heel
of oppression! They were left in the
very heart of rebeldom, unprotected,
unprovided for, and, in numerous cases,
subsisting for years after upon their
former masters, with whom it seems
they were left to compete. Thus the
ex-slave was exposed to all the hatred
and fury and vengeance that the insti
tution of Southern bloodhounds and
their brother rebels could wreak. With
great efforts the masses of the colored
people have acquired an education.
They know that they, too, are entitled
to "life, liberty and the pursuit of hap*
piness," and they chafe as sensibly at
an attempt to abridge these right
though the thing were reversed. For
years the rights of colored men as iiti
zens were totally ignored. But, awaken
ing to their real condition, and smart
ing under any attempt to deprive them
of their natural rights, a disposition to
band together for mutual protection
strikes alarm and terror to the coward
ly Southern ambushed murderers.
The South (or that element of it)
should know by this time that the
policy she has adopted of trying to
compel a free people to subservience
by an utter disregard of life and law
will not work, and must bring upon
her head the vengeance of freedom.
Nature and custom have endowed the
colored man with a constitution almost
impregnable to hardships, and he is
therefore peculiarly adapted to the
culture of certain Southern products
which to the white man would mean
miasma and death: but oppression in a
free country is unbearable. A practical
remedy for our grievances would be a
vigorous and popular move looking to
the emigration of at least one million
of these people from the South to the
new states of the Pacific Northwrest.
These states have boundless timber
and farm lands, and the climate and
other conditions are equal or perhaps
better than the South.
The law of evolution operating on
the white man south of the Mason and
Dickson line presages a retarding effect
and seems to carry him steadily, but
surely, back to the awful abyss of
barbaric night! No man is the equal
of the one he robs! These recent
"race troubles'' are but the murmur
ings of the terrible storm hat is sure
to break they are the menacing
Nemesis that will bring retribution
swift and sure upon that section which
revels in lawlessness and crime. That
government is no adequate government
at all that is powerless to defend the
defenders. We have heard talk enough
about solving the "race problem." but
there is no race problem to solve!
When the balance of haamony existing
between all the races that compose
this great republic is distrubed, then,
and not till then, will there be a race
problem to solve.
Justice holds out the scales and
metes out to every race composing the
American people their dues except the
colored man. No instance is recorded
in which the colored man has carried
in his bosom the devilish spirit of
revenge for the unspeakable cruelties
and the monstrous outrages against
the rebels who owned him. Husband
and wife were parted on the auction
block babies sold from the breasts of
mothers by^ the fiendish hand of greed
and relentlessness, and still the colored
man seeks no revenge. There are no
"virdlent feelings" in his heart against
his tyrant master, and, if such a feeling
exists in ane state or states in the
United States, in a mild or intense
form, against the faithful allies of all
American wars, the intelligence of
that state or states may be fated in
proportion to the amount of these

The Right Sort of Talk.
Boston, Sept. 18.A body of Colored
met here yesterday, pursuant to a call
inviting "a conference of of leading Col
ored men to assist in fhe organization
of a movement to secure from the polit
ical pahty of our affihrtion a fair share
in its resf onsibihties and honors." Res
olutions were adopted declaring:
"We ask n favors that are withheld
from other citizens ar to which they are
not entitled, but we do ask for that civil
and political homof eneity which invades
no man's private social rights but which
does lie at the foundation of national u
nity. We contend for the contact with
our white bretren which elevates and
does not degrade either them or us.
The promoters of selfish interests at our
expense, whether they be white or black
men, are our enemies. We do not be
lieve that all our grievances can be cured
by politics, and while we urge the ex
ercise of tne right of suffrage and all
other rights courageously, firmly and
discr etly, we counsel against entering
politics for a livelihood in lieu of enter
ing other fields of industry. We em
phasize the importance of acquiring
homes, landed and personal property
and usge the necessity of education.
Wealth and equipment mental, moral
and industrial, are the key to the situa
tion. We condemn the brutal outrages
committed upon our people in the South.
We warn our countrymen that if the
violence done women and children, the
burning of schools chnrches, the de
struction of homes and murder of de
fenseless men are not prevented by the
strong arm of the law, tbe patience,
long suffering and forebearanee, charac
teristic of our, people, will be boaded in
to hate and a striking out in self-defanse.
We pray to be permitted to live within
the law, but if we are driven to live
otherwise the blame will not be ourg.
A permanent committee was appointed
to carry out the purpose outlined in the
call. 1 it
