the holy spirit is with us and twenty
five persons claim conversion. We have
all been revived and quickened. There
has been a lajge attendance at every
meeting Sunday night the Rev. Thom

on the Communion. The church was
filled to its uttermost capacity. The
evening collection $29 30 was given to
Rev. Thomas and the chuich also paid
bis traveling expenses. He left Tues
day morning for his home, bearing with
him our prayers and best wishes. The
meetings are still going on, and will as
long as the interest is good. The ordin

Pribably the most successful Colored
musician who has ever lived in our city
has been Prof. A. Dayman who resides
at 219 3d street. He came here a few
months ago a graduate ot the Cmcmatti
Conservatory of music and engaged at
Mrs. Penmsfields music store as sales
man but finding things did not suit him
he engaged with Dver Bro's 517 and 519
Nicollet avenue in the guitar and string
music department as salesman. Since
he has made a specialty of teaching the
Guitar, Violin, Banjo and Mandolin, at
which he has been extremely success
ful. Having won over thirth scholars
among the best people of the city. In
speaking Prof. Daymon said Minneap
lis is a most excellent field for a Colored
Rev. R. H. Williamson preached a
very interesting and logical sermon
from the book of Esther, Sunday even
ing at bis church. He said history re
peats itsself and we find in the days
when Haman was the kings right hand
man, that there was a race of people
who trouble Haman and he wanted to
exterminate them. He went to the king
and said there are certain people scat
tered abroad and dispersed among the
people in all the provinces of thy king
dom and their laws are diverse from all
people, neither keep they the king's
laws therefore it is not lor the kings
profit to suffer them and asked of the
king that it might be written that they
De destroyed. As the king had explicit
cofidenee in Haman, he took off his ring
and gave it to him and told him go do
with the Jews as it seemed good. The
kings ring gave Haman the entire pow
er to act in this matter. It was like as
if a millionaire of our city was to sign
his name to a lot of blank checks and
allow some person to fill them out to
suit himself. But we find one watching
this ease, that one is God in heaven
who is watching to-day. We bear
Estherhere the woman comes in
woman who was first and last at the
cross of our Lord Jesus Christ who was
first to the sepulchre and who are first
in currying on the work of our Savior.
God bless the woman. Sending this
message to Modecai the Jew, who had
incured Hamans hate by refusing to bow
to him as he sat at the kings gate, Go,
gather together all the Jews that are
present in Shushan, and fast ye for me,
and neither eat or drink three days,
night or day. I also and my maidens
will fast likewise and so will I go unto
the king, which is not according to law,
and if I perish, I perish, He told of
Esther going before the king and instead
of having her killed he held out the
golden sceptor that she might tough and
be safe. Here he reached the apex of
his discourse and dwelt on the sinners
going over the line into unforbidden
paths and said the band ofGod, asa
golden sceptor was extended to all who
would touch and be safe. He spoke of

W. A. Hazel Demonstrates the
Possibilities Resulting From
Pluck, Ability and Worth.
A Credit to the Northwest.
William A. Hazel, whose portrait a
dorns this page, is the latest contribu
tion of the race to the professional and
business ranks of St. Paul having come
to this city from Minneapolis at the be
ginning of the year. By profession Mr.
Hazel is an architect and decorative art
ist, and as such fills the position of de
signer, in addition to that of manager of
the St. Paul branch of Brown & Hay
wood's Btained glass works the main
house being in Miiuceapohs.
The subject of our sketch was born in
Wilmington N. C. in 1854 and is conse
quently 35 years of age. When 3 years
old, the shadow of coming events caused
his parents to remove to Oberhn, O. and
a few years later to Cambridge Mass.
Young Hazel attended the public
schools in that city until at the age of 16
years he began to earn his own living by
engagiug as indoor servant in the family
of Charles Russell Lowell, a brother of
tbe poet. One month of this service con
vinced Hazel that it was not the kind to
suit him, and he looked about for some
thing a little more independent. Ob
taining employment as assistant to a
janitor in Boston, it became apart of his
duty to take care of the oihee of an ar
chitect, who, liking his appearance, en
gaged him to run errands, sweep the
office an i "grind ink" for the draughts
men, and do other similar service. Ha
zel soon conceived the idea of learning
to draw but, as he himself says, he hard
ly dared to aspire to such work, howev
er, he'mentioned his desire to his em
ployer and requested that he might be
taken as a student. Young men were
constantly being taken in the office as
students, but a black student in archi
tecture! that had never been, in Boston,
and was sufficient reason for a denial of
his request, "William" was welcome to
all he could learn if he would continue
to do the menial work, and do it he did.
He learned easily and soon began to be
ust ful with his pen and pencil, so that
in a few years he was almost altogether
employed in drafting. But finding that
if he lived to be as old as Methuselah be
could never, in that office, arrive at the
full dignity of a "draughtsman," Hazel
after serving seven years, packed his
grip and started for New York, where
he would not be handicapped by bis
past. With trepidation he applied to
office after office, seeking employment
as a draughtsman after many re
buffs and discouragements he was given
a trial by the late Mr. Cbas. D. Gam
brill, a former partner of the greatest
architect of tbe age, the late H.
Richardson, this was twelve years ago.
and since then Hazel has never been
without employment in his profession.
After remaining a year in New York,
Hazel returned to Boston and gave his
attention to the study of decorative art,
particularly stained glass designing.
After filling one position continuously
8 years Mr. Hazel, 3 years ago was
offered the position of designer for the
stained glass department of Forman,
Ford & Co, of Minneapolis, be accepted,
and during his incumbencv made so
good a reputation that "The Tiffany
Glass Co.," of New York appointed him
tbeir representative in Minneapolis,
this position he raigned at the begin
ning of this yeuJto accept the one he
now holds. JI#S
One of his achievements of which Mr.
Hazel feels proudest, is bis connection
with tbe Grand Opera House Minne
apolis last summer. He was employed
as architect to re-model the interior.
He made all of bis drawings at night,

Washington, D. C, Feb. 5.-The Col
ored men's convention began its sesbions
here Monday with many prominent
representatives of the race present.
Col. Perry H. Carson called the conven
tionto order, and said, among other
things, that the suppression of the Col
ored vote in the South had become the
prime object of those who were lately in
rebellion, and they had succeeded in
tbeir nefarious work so well as to give
the Democratic partv thirty-seven more
electoral votes than it was entitled to.
E. P. McCall was elected temporary
president and W. Calvin Chase of the
Washington Bee temporary secretary.

of the Colored people from this country

There was a bitter fight over
permanent administration and anti
administration factions. Each side
was struggling for supremacy in
the organization, the one to carry
thorough resolutions indorsing the
President and the other to prevent it
The convention was packed with gov
ernment employes led by Auditor John
R. Lynch, Recorder Bruce and two sons
of Minister Douglass.
A committee selected informally by
this faction saw the President a moment,
and asked him his pleasure. According
to a member of the committee, Harrison
replied that he hoped the Colored citi
zens ot the country would see that their
interests were still with the republican
party and that indorsement of the ad
ministration by resolution would be
welcome as showing their continued al
legiance to the republican cause.
Aamed with this authority, the office
holding faction returned to the fight,
but were routed. The organization and
sentiment of the convention are des"
tinctly against any indorsement of the
administration. The position of the
majority is that if the Colored man is to
amount to anything as a voter he must
assume an independent attitude, not go
ing into any party, but letting both par
ties run after him. The failure of the
officeholding crowd to secure indorse
ment of the administration is very hu
miliating in view of the efforts which
they have put forth. The vote by
which Bishop Wayman was declared e
lected permanent Chairman was chal
lenged, and the claim was made that ex
Senator Pinchback bad been the cboice
of the convention, Mr. Pinchback called
the meeting to order, and a committee
on permanent organizatian was
appointed. Tbe committee made a un
animous report recommending the Rev.
J. C. Price, of North Carolina, as Presi
dent, Thomas Parson, of Los Angelos,
Cal., Vice President, R. A. Dawson, of
New Jersey, Secretary. The repert of
the committee was adopted unamiously
confirming these nominations. A list of
honorary vice presidents, one from each
state represented in tbe conyention,
was also selected. Committees on ad
dresses and resolutions were also ap
pointed, as well as a committee to re
port a plan for a national organization.
The National organization was effected
Thursday with Hon. P. B. S. Pinchback
as president. M. M. Smith of Minne
sota is one of the executive committee.
