HTCEiED AT POSTOFFICE A3 SEbOKD-CLASS MATTER
SATURDAY. JANUARY 24,1891.
THE ENVIOUS EDITOR AGAIN.
In the last issue of the Freemen,Great
Negro Cooper, pnnte a long diatribe
againBt THE APPEAL.
As in the previous article the envioup
editor fights ehy of the truth.
The statement that the Holiday Edi
tion of TUB APPEAL did not contain one
page of original matter is absolutely
false. You should examine the paper
again, G. N. C.
The Freeman makes another false
statement when it says that THE APPEAL
is a patent sheet. Patent sheets bear the
trade mark of the Newspaper Uuion
which prints them. THE APPEAL is set
up and made up by its own employees.
Can The Freeman say as much?
The writer has before him as he writes
a sheet of the Christmas edition of The
Freeman, issued December 20,1890, and
containing four cohims of patent ads,
with the telltale inscription:
INU 51-91 INDPLIS
The sheet contains juht three inches
more than one column of original mat
ter. This was gotten up for circulation
in Indianapolis only, and that is why the
other subscribers and exchanges have
not seen it. We have however obtained
a copy and have it on exhibition at our
Chicago office 3-5 Dearborn street.
The charge that THE APPEAL imitates
the Freeman is false. Our size, shape
and make up are entirely different. The
present proprietors of THE APPEAL are
really the originators of illustrations in
Colored journalism. Old newspaper
men will remember that as far back as
1879 and 1880, while publishing THE
BULLETIN at Louisville, Ky., which was
at that time the leading Colored journal,
they were the first to publish cuts of
prominent Afro-Americans. This was
years before Great Negro Cooper had
entered the field of journalism.
The Freeman uses plate matter in
nearly every issue so why throw stones
at others by charging them with the
Great Negro Cooper says that his
relations with Lee, Jenkins, etc., are in
the line of legitimate business. Is it
legitimate business to get something and
not pay for it? The writer has seen two
telegrams which Cooper sent to Lee
stating that he had remitted and asking
that the goods be released. Now as the
great Negro had not remitted, did not
remit and has not yet remitted of what is
he guilt} This matter is now in the
hands of Messrs. Barnett & Williams Mr.
Lee's attorneys and as the courts will be
called upon to decide the matter we'll
let it drop.
The Freeman acknowledges that it
clips from the various "patent back"
papers and as ii is a leading
paper it is not necessary *to give
credit. That is journalism" says the
Envious Editor. Is it not unfair to use
BO much matter from the "patent backs"
and yet continually cast slurs on them?
Some time last fall, Mr. Lee, by mis
take shipped a cartoon belonging to
THE APPEAL, to The Freeman. About
an hour afterward he discovered his
mistake and wrote to the great Negro
requesting that the cartoon be returned
THE APPEAL also wrote a letter to that
effect but THE APPEAL'S cartoon was pub
lished in The Freeman just the same.
2ax APPEAL then asked pay for it as it
was useless after The Freeman had used
it This was refused by Cooper. THE
APPEAL then asked that The Freeman
have an original drawing made in pay
ment. To this Cooper assented, but in a
week or so instead ofsending an original
as he agreed to, he sent an old chestnut,
advertising The Freeman which had
been published previously in that paper.
A month or two ago great Negro
Cooper thought he'd like to know some
of the inner workings of THE APPEAL he
wanted to get in on the groundflooras
it were and learn what we were doing.
First he wanted to know our prices for
cuts but instead of sending a request for
our Bheet of illustrations, which would
have been cheerfully forwarded to him
he wrote under an asumed name, to get
what could have obtained without any
subterfuge. The original letter in Coop
er's own handwriting is on file at this
We have it on good authority that
while a partner of Levi Christy in pub
lishing the World, that Cooper would
take the literary productions of others
and copy them in his own handwriting
in order to hoodwink Christy and make
him believe that he was a great editor.
Speaking of hoodwinking the public
the great Negro Cooper proved him
self an adept during the campaign last
fall, when in order to please the differ
ent parties from whom he had solicited
aid, he issued three editions of The
Freeman. The Republican issue came
out first with portraits of candidates and
The next issue was as strongly Demo
cratic. These two editions were circu
lated in Indianapolis only. Then came
the foreign edition which was independ
ent. It was a great scheme and only a
Great Negro could have conceived it.
This controversy was started by Great
Negro Cooper and we'll let him end
it. He has said his say and we have said
our say, now let the public judge be
The National Baptist has an admirable
editorial upon the so-called charitable
enterprises carried on among the Colored
people of the South. It contains many
good striking points, but unfortunately
omits others closely related to those
mentioned, which are equally as good
and as striking. The article rightfully
asserts that the tendency of many of
these enterprises is to make the Colored
beneficiaries paupers in feeling and in
fact, and thereby to "inflict a serious
and deadly injury." It justly insists
that what the Colored people are capable
of doing they ought to do for them
selves It presents a view of the situa
tion by supposing a meeting in some
Southern place, which adopts the fol
R. MAGEE, Editor of "The Brotherhood."
Resolved, "First, that we will show to
the world what the Colored people can
do for themselves.
Resolved, Second, that we send an
agent to beg from our white brethren at
These resolutions being passed, they
proceed to secure the commendation of
the leading white persons in that neigh
borhood, all of whom, with an enthusi
asm and unanimity that confer honor
upon human nature, recommend them
to come North and beg. All the minis
ters of the town of every denomination
testify to the vital, perishing need of
such an institution and to the excellence
of the location and the County Clerk
always testifies under the seal of hisulated
office that these persons are residents of
the country, the Mayor and Governor
add their sign manual and the solicitor
setB out upon his travels. No doubt he
enjoys his journey. He makes miser
able the lives of many benevolent peo
pie at the North, and deprives many of
them of $100 worth of time and $1 in
money. Of this it is quite likely that
not five cents is left for the church after
the traveling expenses of the agent are
paid. All of which is very true. But
per contra. In scores of instances, good
white people, big churches, elders, bish
ops and even cardinalsbecome suddenly
impressed with a desire to do something
for the poor "freedmen," but they don't 1 the polls on the 4th of November.
fail to so arrange matters that the poor
freedmen is eventually compelled to pay
back every cent of the money invested
in the "charitable" operation, and a
very large percentage upon the invest
ment. In plain words, the thing is a
big speculation disguised as a charity.
In a few years, the venture becomes
self ^supporting, and supplied several of
our white brethren and sisters with bet
ter and more profitable positions than
they could get anywhere else. The
credit goes to the big church or big so
ciety, but the Colored brother really
foots the bill, and is indebted to thebreathing
white brother only for the management.
An inpartial investigation of many of
the so-called charitable operations
among the Colored people would show
that a very large number of them have
some kind of an attachment to force
thern^ to pay for all they get. This, of
course, is all right, but to call it by its
right name would also be all right. The
advancing of a sum of money to help
the Colored people in any way, schools,
churches or any thing else, when accom
panied by a plan to compel the repay
ment of every cent invested, is a com
mendable thing, just the kind of busi
ness a bank or insurance company does,
but it is not charity. The South is full
of such speculations, which pass in pub
lic estimation as charities, so long as
the Colored man foots the bill, as he is
made to do.
The St. Paul Sunday Sun, that terror of
evil doers, took up the case of Mr. W.
A. Hazel and devoted an entire column
to it last week and, goes for the pro
prietors of the outrage in its regular
gloveless style. We are pleased to haye
the Sun as an ally in this matter.
Though THE APPEAL exchanges with all
the dailies of St. Paul none of them, as
the Sun says, seemed to notice the Hazel
episode* It may be possible that the
treatment accorded to Mr. Hazel meets
with the approval of the editors and
managers of those papers. We, how
ever, hope not, yet their silence
looks a little suspicious. The Sun
smaas to be give a man a man'B
chance, and that is all any Col

rays of the Sun reach the cockles of the
cold hearts of the people of St. Paul and
arouse them to a sense of the injustice
and outrages practiced upon thir Col
ored brethren in various places and
walks of life in St. Paul.
Some of the Southern States are mak
ing great effort to attract immigrants, but
seem to be more successful in driving
away the people who are alreadv there,
as an instance, the Hoginam Washing
tonian, published in the new state of
Washington, mentions the arrival on the
steamer Montesano of a colony of 58
white persons from Arkansas, which
party includes Dr. C. M. Warwood,
gevernor-elect in '88, but counted out
by the Bourbons Hon. G. A. Robinson,
former probate judge of Nevada County

THE APPEAL: A NATIONAL AFRO-AMERICAN NEWSPAPER.
The King of the Hawaiian Islands Dies
The King's Life Prolonged for Several
Days Only by the Use of Stimulants
Princess Lelinokalani the King's
Sister his Successor.
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 20 Kalakaua, king
of the Hawaiian islands, died at the Palace
hotel in this city to-day. There had been
no hope of the king's recovery since Sun
day, though his alarming condition was
uot generally known until last evening,
when the attending physicians announced
that his malady was Bngbt's disease ot the
kidneys and uraemia.
Kalakaua's visit to this country was made
on account of his failing health. com.
nienced to gam strength soon after his ar
rival) but the improvement was only tem
porary, and soon after his return from his
trip to Southern California last week his
condition became much worse. During the
last few days the king was unconscious
nearly all the time, and his life was pro
longed only by the use of stimulants.
During all last night death was expected
at any moment. Th king's physicians
and other attendants, including Consul
General McKmley, Col. K. Baker, the
king's chiet of staff, Col. George MacFar
lane, his chaniberlanvand several ladies
remained at his bedside or in the adjoining
room. There was no improvement in the
king's condition this morning, and by noon
it was apparent to all that he could live but
a lew hours longer. A times it was almost
impossible tb distinguish his breathing at
all, though the respiration was, slight aa it
was, very rapid.
continued to sink until 1:30 this after
noon, when Col. MacFarlane bent over the
king and asked him if he knew him. N
the reply came to the question or even
the slightest token of recognition.
THE CLOSING 8CBNES.
Then at the request ol Col. MacFarlane
Dr. J. Sanders Reed, the rector ot Trinity
Episcopal church, read a selection from
bcripture, and demonstrations of grief on
the part ot the chamberlain and other at
tendants were very affecting.
Reading of Scriptural passages was con
tinued nearly an hour, while the patient's
grew fainter every moment, and
those who were watching at his bed side
could scarcely notice any sign of liie.
At 2 30 o'clock Medical Inspector Woods,
who was bending over the king, announced
that the last spark ol life had fled.
The king's remains win be embalmed at
once. While no definite arrangements have
been made yet for the funeral services here,
and the removal of tbe remains to the
islands, it is probable that services will be
held in Trinity Episcopal church on Thurs
day, and that the remains will leave her*
lor Honolulu on the United States flagship
Charleston beiore the close of the week.
The next regular passenger steamer for
Honolulu will not leave here until Jan.
27, and it is probable that thefirstintelli
gence of the king's death which will be
received by the Hawaiian people will be
when the Charleston arrives at Honolulu
with the remains oi the king aboard.
The flags on all the public buildings in
this city were placed at hall mast this after
noon, and the Hawaiian ensign is also at
half mast above the Palace hotel.
Kalakaua's successor will be his sister,
Princess Lelinokalani, who has been acting
as queen regent during Kalakaua absence
from the islands.
King David Laamea Kalakaua was born Nov.
16.1836, in the city ot Honolulu, tbe capital of
bis dominions. horoscope was drawn by
the High Chiefeas Liliha, an adept in Hawaiian
astrology, who predicted that he would make
his mark in tbe world, and that he would revive
tbe power of his forefathers The court soon
after bis birth moved to Labama, where Kala
kaua spent his infant years. From 1840 t
1849 he was placed under tbe tuition of Mr.
and Mrs Cooke, at the Royal school, then late
ly founded Among his school mates were sev
eral who afterward rose to distinction, among
them being Kings Kamehameha IV and and
King Lunalilo 1. Subsequently he received in
struction from Mr Watts and Mr Beck
with, and learned the rudiments of the military
art from Capt Funk, an old .Prussian boldier.
In after years tbe king translated the German
tactics into the native tongue for tbe use of his
people In 1852 he received brevet rank
as captain on tbe staff of Lehohho,
the commandei-m chief In 1853 he be
gan tbe study of law In 1856 he
made a member of tbe privy council, and im
1858 called to tbe house of nobles. Tbe king is
a member of tbe Mabonic fraternity, and re
ceived the thirty-third degree from Gen Pike of
Virginia in 1874 In 18t be visited Victoria,
and San Francisco tb Prince Lot. Re
turning, he became one of the secretaries to the
department of the interior, and in 1863 was ap
pointed postmaster general. In 1865 he ac
cepted the position ot chamberlain to Kame
hameha and in 1867 was made a compamon
of tbe order of that king. In 1869 he was ad
mitted to the bar, and at the same time took a
clerkship in tbe latfd office, which he held till his
accession. As chief,of the king's etaff, he re
ceived his royal highness thd dune of Edinburgh
when he visited the" island. It will be seen that
King Kalakaua's career wasrnot, at any rate,
that of an idle man. He was elected sovereign
on the 12th of February, 1874, aud hi* reign
was inaugurated on the following day. Thegarnished
coronation did not, however, take place until
