The Great Popular Preachexg Contes
This Week Rev. J. T. Jenifer of Chicago
Heads the ProcessionAre you
Working Hard for Your
Pastor? Who'll Win?
Cutting out Ballots in the contest for
the prizes offered by IHE 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
Mill 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 numbei of votes sent. They will
also be caieful to cut out the ballot, no
mo'e and no less, trimming it neatly to
the line. They will likewise avoid roll
ing them. Observance of these three
simple injunctions will greatly abridge
the labors at this office.
The interest in the result in some quar
ters is extraordinary. Manv 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 emnloy 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 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 indicates that it will
be necessary for your friends to bestir
yourselves on his behalf if you would
have him win.

the man had was in the form of earth
clods but he succeeded in crushing out
the life of the rattler, and upon exami
nation found the snake to measure ten
feet in length, with ninety-six rattles
and a button on the lateral extremity.
This would give an almost phenomenal
age to the snake, making it about one
hundred years old. The skin and
rattle have been taken north to Salt

The Virginia Republican State Com
mittee met here this week under the
guidance of General Mahone for the
purpose ol effecting^ome arrangements
relative to the coming congressional
campaign, that would be of best interest
to the party. After two days session
the committee drafted a set of resolu
tions in which they made a strong ap
peal to the Senate for the immediate
passage of the Election Law bill. The
resolutions furthermore, declare that
they will not participate, and advise all
self-respecting Republicans to forbear
participation in any election in the
State of Virginia, where, and so long as
the same shall be conducted under the
foul election law of the Democrat party,
as they are now fraudulently admin
istered. Hopefully however, biding the
the time when unlawful disfranchise
ment of the electors and fraudulent "re-
turns" shall become so repugnant to
popular sentiment as to make the ac
ceptance of public trust by such means
a badge of dishonor. The popular sen
timent here is that the actions of the
committee will meet with universal ap
propal among the Republican party in
the Old Dominion State.
Now that the Federal Law bill has
passed the House, all eyes are set upon
the Senate and anxiously awaiting to see
what that august body will ,do with re
gard to this important measure. At a
caucus meeting of Republican Senators
held this week for the purpose of cen
tering on a program for the remainder
of the session, the Federal Election
Bill was taken up and discussed at some
length. A great many of the Republi
cans want the River and Harbor bill to
be disposed of first, then the tariff bill
and lastly the Federal Election bill.
While to the contrary the Senators from
the new States are very anxious to have
the Election Law bill disposed of first.
They have grown so enthusiastic in
their desire that they have declared
their willingness to so amend the rules
to limit debate to ten days, and demand
the previous question and set in contin
ous session until a vote is taken. But
elder beads like Edmunds, Hoar, Haw
ley, and Hiscock, are bitterly opposed
to making such a sacrifice. Should the
next caucus decide to take up the Elec
tion bill, and allow the rules to remain
as they do now, it will be simply a ques
tion of staying powers, as the rules at
present has no limit to debate. Thus it
can be seen that such men as Senators
Call of Florida and Daniel of Virginia
by continuous speech making could pre
vent the passage of the bill this session.
Representative Belden, chairman of
the Republican congressional commitee
has issued an address to the Republican
editors, calling on them for their support
in urging the Senate to pass the Election
bill, in the course of which he says:
"No question of Negro supremacy, no
usurpation of Federal power is involved
in the issue. The National Election,bill
which recently passed the House, deals
only with National elections. It does
not meddle directly or indirectly with
State elections, S*ate officers, or State
organizations." Mr. Belden closed, his
address by saying: "The House has
performed its part of the work to which
the party was pledged. Will you not
do your duty in urging that the Senate
shall respond promptly by the passage
of the measure which the House deemed
essential, absolutely essential to the
purity of the elections of its own mem-
bers." The address was signed by Mr.
Beldon and sent throughout the United
States. C. A. JOHNSON.

THE 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 success.
The first is to make selection of
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 hei
condidate might hare been elected by
a slight extra effort. A few votes may
be the difference between the winners
and loBers. 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*
