Cutting out Ballots in the contest for
the prizes offered by THE APPEAL to the
ten most popular ministers in the states
of Illinois, Minnesota, Kentucky and
Missouri, grows apace.
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 votes sent. They will
also be careful to cut out the ballot, no
more and no less, trimming it neatiy to
the line. They will likewise avoid roll
ing them them. Observance of these
three simple mjuuctions will greatly
abridge the labors at this orfice.
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
quen to persuade friends that their
own particular candidate is the best and
most deserving 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, the second the next largest,
and s- on throughout the entire list, the
one at the bottom having received the
least number. If your candidate is well
down on the listit indicates that it will
be necessay for your friends to bestir
yourselves on his behalf if you would
have him win.

Emma Morgan, a very fair young Col
ored lady was in Judge Tuley's Court,
Saturday seeking a divorce from her
husband. She complained bitterly of
her husband's cruelty.
"My husband," said she, "has been
very cruel to me. Often he has beaten
me and abused me in a shameful man-
"Why did he do this?"
"He was tired of me, and has often
said that I was only a child."
Other witnesses took the stand and
told of Mr. Luther W. Morgan's cruelty
to his wife. "I heard him say," said one
witness, "that he would cut her heart
Judge Horton, who was hearing the
cause got a trifle angry becapse the com
plainant said she resided in Pennsylva
nia, and he scored the lawyer a little.
Thereupon Mrs. Morgan was again put
on the stand, and said she had been in
Cook county more than a year.
"Did you come here for the purpose
of getting a divorce?" asked Judge Hor
"No," and the complainant bgan to
cry. This was the signal for tears and
the next minute all the female witnesses
drew their handkerchiefs and began to
weep. This touched the court and final
ly he ordered the evidence written up.

The National Election law has been
the topic of universal gossip about the
curbstones and hotel corridors the past
week and will be the field of Waterloo to
a few of the "chosen" of the house who
have opposed it. From the outeet it
was supposed to be an election bill but
it has become a bill for Pompey and
Aunt Catherines children. Poor Pom
pey bobs up in the affairs of this country
most disagreeably. The Republicans of
the North have been heaping praise (of
words) on poor Pomp and the Demo
crats of the South, who distorts the
English of Negro to "Nigger" and by a
vocalistic contortion reduces that to
''NJggah," have been industriously at
work proving that Uncle Ephand
the rest of the poor Israelites have and
are faring well with Pharoah. Well
somebody hasin this affair, and when
the bill is put in force we'll soon discov
er the cause of the past 25 years of polit
ical commotion and campaign red-shirt
ism. Mr. Lodge who is the author of
the bill made an excellent speech in
presenting, it and "Old Secesh" had to
shake his gory locks through the instru
mentality of Mr. Hemphill of S. C. By
this time they get through with Pomp
and his rights, it will be hard to discov

Hon. H. P, Cheatham has demonstra
ted that Colored legislators understand
affairs of state. He has drafted and in
troduced in the House an Educational
Bill of great merit. It calls for the ap

ded in the next eight years for educa
tional purposes, the expenditure to be
made in each state in proportion that
the illiteracy of the said state beaTS to
the illiteracy of the United States* It
also makes Industrial and Normal schools
beneficiaries of the funds appropriated
and further embodies provision for
building school houses. The Secretary
of Interior has the disbursment of the
funds in his power subject to the repre
sentation and applicaton of the Govern
ors of the respective states. To become
a beneficiary of this bill a state must
make equal distribution of its school
funds among all regardless of color and
its legislature must by bill or resolution
accept the provisions of the act. A
mismanagement of school funds or vio
lation of the act in any particular by
any state is sufficient grounds for forfeit
ure of its benefits. Those who enter
Normal Schools assisted by this act are
pledged in writing to devote themselves
to teaching for one year after leaving
said schools. The Commissioner of Ed
ucation, Secretary of Interior and Pres
ident of the U. S. are constituted
Commissioners to administer the law,
regulate its enforcement and disburse
the funds. Altogether this bill is an
exceptionally good one and Mr. Cheat

importance in order to hope for success.
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 tbe
ballots possible and at the same time stir
up interest and activity in others. De
