The Festival and drill by the Young

at each meeting. Mr. Swasey's una
voidable absence from the city was a
disappointment to the club, however, it
resolved itself into extensive eesaion and
transacted some necessary business.
The constitution was amended so as to
admit of fpur instead of two meetings a
month. The promoters of the enterprise
have borne in mind the fact that the
musical talent of the city is connected
with the various organizations of both
religions and charitable characters, and
have endeavored to avoid a clashing in
terests. The club stands alone upon a
musical basis and it remains to be seen
whether it will succeed upon that basis.
This being clearly and irrequivocably
stated, let our music loving people rally
to its support. Its next meeting will be
held at Pilgrim Baptist church Tuesday

The greatest hero is perhaps the man
who does his very best, and signally
fails, and yet is not embittered by his
failure. A life here in which you fail of
every end you seek, yet which discip
lines you for a better, is assuredly not a
failure. The brethren and sisters gave
witness, Sunday morning, of the success
in the battle of life, which come from
apparent failure. Sunday was a day of
joy and gladness, there were more mem
bers at communion than there has ever
been in the past year, nearly a hundred

ST. JAMES A. M. E. CHURCH.
It is remarkable what strange notions
members of the "superior" race
have regarding Colored people. They
claim to be so very intelligent but, put
them up before a Colored audience and
they stutter an stammer or sail away on
some antideluvian idea that disgusts
their hearers. They seem to think that
they have to express themselves in
some peculiar way to Colored auditors.
Doubiless they mean no harm, but they
certainly show an alarming lack of com
mon sense. An exemplification of this
fact occurred at St. James church last
Sunday evening. The Methodist Epis
copal conference was in session here last
week and according to established cus
tom the ministers present, or a portion
of them, were assigned to the different
pulpits of the city last Sunday. After
considerable discussion in the committee
as to the sort of man to send, one was
selected for St. James. He came ac
companied by two brothers. The ser
mon of the preacher was interesting and
instructive, the prayer of one of the
others gave evidence of his scholaily at
tainments. Then came some remarks
by the third brother, but in the first
sentence he uttered he put his foot in
it, by some allusions to "Old Black Joe"
and his "black mammy" etc. His re
marks as a matter of course fell like a
wet blanket on the audience but he
seemed to be in blissful ignorance. At
the close of his remarks the pastor of
the church arose and in a most sarcastic
but genteel manner gave the speaker
something to think of for many dayb to
come, if he had intelligence enough to
notice and understand it. The audience
was highly delighted at the spirited and
timely remarks of the young pastor. It
is hoped that the brother of the "super
ior" race will profit by the lesson given.
Colored people have not been idle for
the past twenty-seven vears and in
ordinary intelligence will average pretty
well. Members of the "superior" race
ought to be intelligent enough to re-
Colored au liences, talk on such subjects

The murder of Colored men, women and
children in the South, he said, meant
that the Colored people mubt organize
if they would protect themselyes. He
thought that the condition of the Col
ored people in Illinois was far from
what it should be. He was bitter in his
attacks on the Democratic party, saying
that every law against the interest of
the Colored lace had been enacted by
that party. He said that a few Colored
men in Mississippi, Louisiana and the
District of Columbia set themselves up
as representatives of the Colore race,

It was proposed to invite Senator Cul
lom, Gov. Filer and Secretary of State
Pearson, to address the conference but
John G. Jones strenuously objected.
Said he "This is a Colored men's confer
ence there are Colored men of brains
here andl would rather hear them talk."
Dr. J. H. Magee resented the language
used by the objector. The speaker ex
pressed surprise that any man should
have the audacity to object to inviting
these officials, because they are white
and said he was "sorry we have a Col
ored man in the State with gall enough
to do such a thing." The previous ques
tion was ordered and the motion to in

that Mr. Jones voted a solitaiy negative.

Just before Fredrick Douglass sailed

called upon by Lieutenant Edward
Lloyd, of Maryland, whose great grand
father owned Douglass and his mother
when they were sla\es.
Senator Walker, of Mississippi, pro-
lead th Colore neighbor away from
violence by example and by kind treat
ment. This is the only Christian course
to take, and to take it will be effectual
for good just as soon as the-Southern
whites come to recognize the rights of
the Colored citizens to citizenship, and
their capacity for education in a fitness
to exercise those rights, as shown by
the wonderful progress illustrated by
their foremost men. Once convince the
Colored people that the whites do not
wish to disfranchise them and keep
them down and race prejudice will dis
appear from the black side, at least.

Minister Douglass had some trouble
about securing transportation to Hayti

Mr. R. T. Qteener secretary of the
Ornamental Grant Monument Commit

Jackson, a respectable Colored man

A delegation composed of nearly all of

Monday in behalf of Simon Walker, the
Colored manlto be executed at Chester
field Court House Friday for an alleged
criminal assault on a white girl. The

A crazy Colored man who proclaimed
himself John the Baptist and called up
on all to be batized has been making
things|hvely in Liberty County, Ga.
Many Colored men were baptized
and cut down trees and built a
circular structure which they called
"Ark." A hundred unbelieving visited
the place Sunday and gave "John the

Sound financial ideas appear to prvajl
in the dark continent of Africa notwith
standing the use of rude mediums of ex
change. The accomplished ethnologist
of the New York Sun lemarks upon thje
dissatisfaction of the untutored Hotten
tots at the fluctuat'ons in the value of
the circulating medium, and the shrewd
acumen which they employ to offset its
disadvantages. Native cotton cloth in
strips reaching from the longest finger
to the elbow is the monetary standard
among many of the African savages',
and they haye developed sufficient
shrewdness to take advantage of fluctua*
tious in length by paying in short strips
and collecting in long ones. The in
stinct of gain is a primitive idea, and the
Africans are not behind the highly
civilized people who, when cattle were
the medium of exchange, paid their
debts in lean kine and sought to enforce
payment in fat ones.
