Louis Young, a porter employed at
Musetters's drug store, corner Fourth
and Wabasha streets, was arrested last
Thursday morning by Officer Tom Gal
vin while in the act of robbing his em
ployer. For some time past Mr. Muset
ter has been missing goods from his
stock and it was suspected that the por
ter was removing them while there was
nobody in the store. Tuesday the case
was placed in Chief Clark's hands, and
Wednesday night, after the store was
closed, Officer Galvin was stationed in
side to watch for the thief. Shortly
after 4 o'clock Thursday morning Young
came stealthily into the store and be
gan to help himself to various small ar
ticles of value from the shelves and
show cases. He was at ce placed un
der arrest, and later his room, which is.
on West Third street over a saloon, was
searched and a quantity of other plunder
from the drug store was found. The to
tal value of the goods stolen is about $50
It was learned that, beside the goods
Young had stolen $118 in money. He
was arraigned before Judge Corv Thurs
day afternoon, waived examination and
was bound over to the grand jury in
WHO WILL WIN?
The Great Preacher Contest to
Decide Wh is the Most
You Know Who Is?
Cutting out Ballots in the contest for
the prizes offered by THE APPEAL to the
ten most popular ministers the states
of Illinois, Minnesota, Kentucky and
Missouri, grows apace.
Tbe 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 votes 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 orlice.
The interest in the 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 tbe best and
most deterving of popular support.
The name of the candidates appear in
the order of their standing. The first
in the list has received the largest num
ber of votes, tbe second the next largest,
and so on throughout the entire list, the
one at the bottom having received the
least number. If your candidate is well
down on the list it indicatt that it will
be necessaiy for your friends to bestir
yourselves on his behalf i you would
have him win.

Items of General Interest.
Dr. J. E. Rankin president of Howard
University is endowed with the true
spirit of justice and his acts and words
aienot opposites of his Christianity.
He was invited to attend the recent so
called Negro Conference at Mohonk
Lake. N, Y. but could not accept. Now
this conference belies its name as much
as a plum pudding without plums.
There was not a Negro at this confer
ence and it is a djsgrace when we have
such able menas Prof. J. C. Ericfrof N.
and RevTWT BVDerrick of$. Y. ana" olh*
ers. Dr. Rankin in his letter of regret
ren ders a very sharp criticism on the
conference as follows: "But why call the
gathering a Negro Conference? Since
no Negros were not invited or expected.
Here are from seven to eight million of
our population, some of whom are
graduates of Harvard, Vassar, Welles
ley many of whom are occupying place
of influence in tbe great institutions
planted for the benefit of the Negro,~
and yet not one of them is supposed to
have any wisdom on this subject! Can
this be the reason?
On this question my suspicion is that
the Ntgro is tired of being consulted
about without being consul^d. He is
up and doing.
In Washington city a few weeks ago
there was a conference of educatars of
Afro-American youth. The papers pre^
sented were by men and women who tpstant.
are solving the Negro problem at thgJ|
front. Another year let representatives
of this class be asked to Lake Mohonk.
The Negro isnota patientabout whom
tne doctors are to express their wisdom
in his absence. He is here, seven or
eight millions of him, and has some idea
of what is the matter with him as well
as of his Anglo-Saxon brother.''
The New York Herald speaks thus of
Clement Gariett Morgan class orator of
Harvard this year. "Mr. Morgan ooes
not belong to the Beacon street circle,
does not reside under the shadow of the
gilded dome, has no claim of ancestry,
but is a born orator, nevertheless and
for that reason was chosen to represent
his fellow students in the position of
honor. Iu a word Mr. Morgan is a
gentleman of color who had eyery thing
against him, and nothing in his favor at
the start. But he was manly, gifted,
loyal, and he won his way by the pro
digality of persistent effort." Mr. Mor
gan is a Washingtonian and the people
here feel proud of his success, as should
all the Colored people of the country.
The National bicvele club of this City
is perhaps the leading Colored Cycle
Club of this country. It is composed of
26 members, has property in Wheels to
the value of $800 in cash. Mr. Spencer
of No. 409 E street N. E. is Captain and
is the most expert wheelman in the city
regardless of color.
The Washington Post has a yearly
competitive Amateur Author's Contest
open to the scholars of all grades in the
public schools. Saturday afternoon the

He competed with scholars from all the

The aNtional Guards D. C. go into
camp on the 21st, of July. Company A
7th, Battalion, Colored, stood second
best atthe annual inspection with aper
cent of 98.
The following except from the Wash
ington Bee is very true. "I am of the
opinion that there is not so much craze
about society as as theie has been.
Once upon a time a person's color and
hair had a great deal to do with his ad
mission to the social circle. This bar
was inaugurated by Negroes from other
States who were admitted to the social
circle of this city. Negro aristocracy
among certain classes of Negroes in this
city would nave made the most fastidi
ous blush. Some people have an idea
that office holding is the only requisite
for their admission in society now.
They look upon office holding as being
pre-eminent to any honorad labor or
business. Some Negroes lorget their
color until they get in trouble and the
moment they get in trouble they de
clare that they are being persecuted be
cause they are Negroes when they are
appointed they then seek white society
they discard both mother and father,
sisters and brothers, if they are only
admitted to outer white society no mat
ter how common it is. Washington is
full of this class of Negroes the gov
ernment departments are full of them.

importance in order to hope for success.
The first is to make ^selection of a
preacher who is possessed of qualities
essential to popularitr^^aving 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
up 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 hex

a slight extra effort. A few votes insy

and losers. Hence the importance of
early and persistent activity in securiug

An assault of the outrageousand mean

last Friday, that some unknown person
had struck the little daughter of Dr. W.

be run down and punished. While her
father's ghost is not clothed at present,
with all the public praise it might be,
yet we consider the attack outrageous.
It has been practiced too much lately,
that of taking the spite out on tbe chil
