As education is the influence of one
person over another, so christian educa

one who' owns in his or her life the
power of a christian faith. What a pow

puts light where darkness was and love
where enmity used to dwell. We
thank God for its transforming power.

PEAL a Happy New Year. Our wish is
that you may still go on and wi.h the
new year make greater progress. The
old Welch brother spoke of three kinds
of progress, he said there is progress
forward, there is progress backward,
and there is progress standing still.
Progress of the latter kind is like that of
the canal boat in the lock. The door is
shut and the other door is open and the
water comes pouring in, you may think
the boat is not making any progress, but
by and by we find the boat has reached
a higher level and it pursues its onward
course. May this be the progress that
THE APPEAL for tbe new year shall make.
Tone up and bring the people up also,
and your success is assured. We want
you to be a power among the Colored
people of the Northwest.

JOSE DO PATROCINIO.

Journalist and Author
A Brilliant Man of Letters.
Jose do Patricinio, editor and propri
etor of the "Gazeta da Tarde." is the
son o'f a slave mother" by the Parish
priest of a small village near Rio. At
least that is the account ^ie has pub
lished of himself in explanation of his
vehement championship of the Colored
race, and his unmeasured abuse of ev
erything and everybody connected di
rectly or indirectly with the Empire. A

and posed as the Tribune of the people.
He is bold, magnetic, and the support
he and bis paper received from the
masses both in )be capital and the prov
inces, must have satisfied the emperor
long ago that it was useless to dream of
a "plebiscite." Patrocinio is a dark
Mulatto, short, rather burly of frame,
possessed of high spirits, He has said
more thin once that the United
States were "behind the times" politi-
cally, and that the poor and ignorant
with us were practically the slaves of
the rich and educated, and I have little
doubt that the cause of his arreet as
one of the first acts of the republican
government was that he insisted on car
rying the revolution to lengths, which
Bocavuva and his associates saw wou Id
be suicidal. Patrocinio is likely to be a
permanent thorn in the side of the new
republic, but he deserves full recogni
tion as one of the forces contributing to
the downfall of Don Pedro.
Douglass Not Snubbed.
Boston, Dec. 24.Mr E. W. Kellogg,
who is connected with the Thompson
Houston Electric Light Company, has
just returned from a visit to Hayti. He
says that the published stories that
Minister Douglass is not receiving the
treatment to which he is entitled as an
officer of the United States Government
are false. When Mr. Douglass reached
Port au Prince there was no organized
Government to receive him, but as soon
as President Hippolyte was inducted in
to office he gave Minister Douglass a
splendid reception at the palace, speak
ing especially warm and cordial words
of welcome, to which Minister Douglass
responded in a most eloquent manner,
which made a great impression on all
present. The Haytians regard Freder
ick Douglass as a great statesman, and
are ready to honor him at all times.
N ew Year Plans.
Now that the old year is rapidly draw
ing to a close, people are beginning to
think of 1890 and what it will bring. In
nine cases out of ten each feels that in
some way he has not spent the past year
as he should, and mentall*. vows that he
will mend his course in one way or an
other. It is the time for good resolu
tions. It is said that a certain warm lo
cality is paved with that sort of resolves,
but they have their use just the same.
And while you are at it resolve to travel
on the best road, and take the Saint
Paul & DuluthDuluth Short Lineto
Duluth, West Superior, and other points,
between which it runs fast trains daily.

WELL KNOWN IN MICHIGAN,
That he is well known in Michigan the
following clipping from the Detroit
Plaindealer of May 24, will show:
"Bishop Lenox, self styled, with his
other prefixes that the Lord only knows
by what manner he procured them, is
raising as big a disturbance in Chicago
as be did in Detroit. He and his con
nected brethren either spent their time
filching the public or quarreling among
themselves here, and it seems from the
dispatches that he hasen't improved on
his tactics since going-to Chicago. Every
one remembers the long gown that he
wore upon the streets here, giving him
the appearance of a sanctified crank.
Detroiters were extremely delighted
when he and his tribe left for green
fields and pastures new."
STARTS A CHURCH.
"Bishop" Lenox first opened a church
at 1619 Clark street which he called the
Methodist Evangelical Mission Church
and since that time he has been going
around the city soliciting contributions
support of his church. It is alleged in
that he claimed to be an A, M. E. Bish
op, so the Methodist pastors of the city
held a meeting in June, to investigate
the matter and issued the following:
CARD TO THE PUBLIC.
At a meeting of the pastors of the
several African M. E. Churches of this
city held at St, Paul's church on Tuesday
June 11th, 1889, at which Bishop John
M. Brown presided, the following was
Whereas, We have also learned that a
man by the name of Lenox, residing
some where on Clark street this city and
calling himself Bishop Lenox, has been
collecting money claiming to be a bish
op of the A. M. E. church, and
Wheaeas, The A. M. E. church has not
now and never has had a bishop by that
name, and believing that the said Lenox
is not a bishop and believing him to be
a fraud of the first water and unworthy
of the confidence of the good people of
Chicago, therefore be it
Resolved, That the Right Rev. John
M. Brown the Bishop of this Episcopal
district of the A. M. E. church and Rev.
Knight presiding Elder be requested to
inform the public through the medium
of the press of this action of the pastors
of the A. M. E. Church of Chicago.
ORDAINED BY THE TWELVE
In conversation with a reporter, Bish
op Lennox said that he was once a cook
on the lake, but he determined to rise
in the world. He was made a bishop by
"twelve elders." He did not give the
names of the persons nor the date and
place of ordination,
satisfied that he's
NO TANK ?OB HIM
In his church he uses the Methodist
discipline, but does not believe in
sprinkling or immersing in a tank. He

Rev. F. Lomack of the Zion Baptist
has tendered his resignation to
take effect on or before the 22d March
18y0, providing the church will pay him
all claims, etc. Sometime ago the matter
was well aired in the courts here, and
finally given to a referee to settle the
referee, Mr. H. Roberts, an attorney of
this city, devoted sometime in taking
testimony and at last filed his decision
subject to publicity when his fees which
amounted to ($25 00) twenty-five dollars
were paid. Both parties refuse to pay,
and the decision is likely to be retained
for fees due the referee. The reyerend
has however gone ahead and has been
enabled to take in seven members since
his trouble in court. Prospects aro
bright for the young pastor and he
says he is not afraid of securing plenty
of ministerial work to do.

church. That work has continued to the
present time. The pastor and family
