Pastor? Who'll Wfci?
REV. FREDERICK LOMACK.
The voting contest continues to grow
hotter and hotter and a determination
to win seems to have taken hold of the
friends of the different contestants.
The most determined people however,
seem to be the friends of Rev. F. Lo
mack of Duluth who felt so encouraged
at the big jump'they "gnaWd hrrHrto
make last week, that they put their
monev together and purchased enough
ballots to send him clear to the top.
The fight ill now be to have him hold
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 numbei of votes sent. They will
also be careful to cut out the ballot, no
mote and no less, trimming it neatly to
tbe 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. vMany
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.
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 vour candidate is well
down on tbe list it indicates that it will
be necessary for your friendB to bestir
yourselves on his behalf if yon would
have him win.

THE APPEAL can not in common fair

preacher. Two things are of the first
importance in order to hope for success.
The first is to make selection of
