News Gleanings From the Capiiol
City of Thi* Great and
Items of General Interest,
So far I have kept my hands off in
this Bruce controversy which all your
readers I am sure are acquainted with.
Recorder Bruce has been charged with
discrimination against his race and also
with having removed, as I understand
it, several Colored attaches of the Re
corders office. Whether these charges
have been justified remains for the rea
der-to discover by persuaj of both^ides
of the question, Feeling some what
bitter at the words of a correspondent,
Being desirous of giving Mr. Bruce a
square deal in the present fight as waged
through the columns of the Gazette. I
called at his office and ascertained these
facts from personal observation, not to

ladies and two white ladies as copyists,
and has now four Colored employees in
excess of his predecessor's force.
3rd. He has appointed Col. Schager
as nis deputy the office requiring such a
person and Col. Schager being eminent
ly fitted for the post by eighteen years
of service in the office.
4th. The internal arrangement of the
office remains the same as it did under
5th. He is running the office on busi
ness principles and is intent on giving
good service to the patrons of the office.
6th. He has not an iota of prejudice
against members of his race and accords
them equal privileges.

now holds is tiiat of comparer, having
held position in the office as copyist un

In coeversation with Mr. Bruce be
spoke as follows: "Mr. Johnson, I

made on me, from the fact that my po

story gave him $20. doing in this case as
he always has done when Minnesotians
come to him in distress. Randolph
went to Senator Davis but he could not
impress the Senator with his identity
with St. Paul and was requested to call
the next day at his office thus giving
himself time to make inquiries. Ran
dolph did not call as business demanded
his attention in some other city. He is
a slick scoundrel and has claimed resi

admitted ones. He is from New Orleans

THK APPEAL can not in common fair
ness, advocate the merits of this or that
preacher. Two things are of the first
importance in order to hope for succees.
The first is to make selection of a
preacher who is possessed of qualities
essential to popularity. Having selected
a candidate the second step is to work
for his success. Let one secure all the
ballots possible and at the same time stir
np interest and activity in others. De
lay in securing ballots are as dangerous
as delays in other mattters. It would
worry one much to learn that his or her
condidate might have been elected by
a slight extra effort. A few votes may
be the difference between the winners
and losers. Hence the importance of
early and persistent activity in securiug
ballots. The plan of determining who
the most popular minister is, is given in
order that all may thoroughly under

Popular Preacher Contest.
The votes for the most popular
preacher continue to come in.
The friends of the ministers have be
gun to work in earnest. There is rea
son to believe that some will hold back
votes. There is no reason for and
nothing can be gained by this course.
This contest is a perfectly fair one and
will be to the end.
Request is made that those sending in
any number of votes will please write
plainly upon the outside of the envelope
the number of vote3 sent. They will
also be careful to cut out the ballot, no
more and no less, trimming it neatly to
the line. They will likewise avoid roll
ing them them. Observance of these
three simple injunctions will greatly
abridge the labors at this oifice.
The interest in th result in some quar
ters is extraordinary. Many of the
friends of the preachers are greatly con
cerned as though it meant a suit of
clothes or a cane or a portrait for them
personally. They employ all their elo
quence to persuade friends that their
own particular candidate is the best and
most deserving of popular support. At
the present writing the following minis
ters have received votes, the names
being given in order according to the
number of votes received*
