Rev. R. C. Ransom, pastor of the
Institutional Church, has been very
active in the war that is being waged
on the policy gamblers and has been
ably assisted by Rev. Carey, of Quinn"
Chapel and other city ministers irre
spective of colot Rev. Ransom an
nounced to the public that, Sunday
evening, his sermon would deal en
tirely with the evils of policy gam
bling and the urging of a general fight
all along the line against the debauch
ing effects of the'business. Rev. Ran
som was advised by some one friendly
to the policy interests to desist from
his efforts and warned that if he per
sisted in fighting the policy. interests
he would be fought back. Fearing
bodily injury Dr.'Ransom armed him
self, little thinking that the destruc
tion of his church would be the meth
od taken to stop him and his co-work
ers in their efforts to root out the evil.
The sermon was delivered and it
was a scathing review of the "methods
by which men, jvomen and children
are daily being robbed of thousands
of dollars. The /speaker showed the
money loss was ^ot the worst feature
of the case but vhat was more to be
regretted was the debauching effect it
was having upon the young. The
policy writers accept the child's pen
nies as well as the man's dollars. Any
one is allowed to play regardless of
age or sex. The sermon was listened
to by a large audience and the min
ister had his 'hearers with him
throughout the discourse. Soon after
the audience was dismissed, and while
the minister, his wife and a few
friends were yet iji the church a bomb
was exploded at one of the outer
doors. The explosion was heard a
mile away and soon attracted a great
crowd about the building. Doors were
torn from the hinges, stairways de
stroyed and the interior of the base
ment of the church was wrecked but
fortunately no one was injured. The
extent of the damage to the building
cannot be estimated until a thorough
examination is made. Four men
were seen to run away immediately
after the explosion but no means of
identification were obtained. The po
lice department is making a thorough
investigation, but, in the absence of
any clue whatever, the probability is
that the perpetrators of the work of
vandalism will go unpunished. The
general impression is that friends of
the policy interests are responsible
for the attempted wrecking of the
The crusade against policy play
ing inaugurated by the ministers is
bearing fruit. A number of shops
have closed up or are hunting for ne\v
quarters. "Patsy" King, the boss of
the policy combine, is said to be
about ready to quit. While the evil
may not be entirely eradicated, there
is great hope that conditions will be
changed for the better. The efforts
of the Afro-American ministers has
attracted widespread attention and

ADDRESS TO THE COUNTRY.
It is evident to the thoughtful among
us that we are passing through one of the
most critical periods of our existence in
this country. Questions that immediately
concern the liberty and well being of one
eighth of the United States and scarcely
to less degree the whole population of the
country are pressing for treatment as
never before. The recorded experience of
mankind teaches that in public matters
the equality of ea is the surest guar
antee of the liberty and safety of all the
members of society. If it be truethat the
country can not endure 'half free and
half slave it follows as a necessary corol
lary that the manhood of no state can
with safety,'-be divided, in nearly: equal
parts, into voters and non-voters.
A systematic effbrt has been inaugur
ated on the part tt the South which has
for its object the withdrawal of the fran
chise from the Afro-Americans of that
section, and their reduction to a position
of absolute subserviency in all the rela
tions of life. Even' college graduates and
men of business and wealth have been
denied the right of franchise. Itjj toeejj
openly declared by some of W most
prominent leaders! of the South tnjtt it
was the intention |of the framers of the
new constitutions to disfranchise as many
Afro-Americans afe possible and leave
every Caucasian iii full possession of the
suffrage. The effict has been that not
only has the Atno-Aroerican. been dis
franchised but a,so that a very large
number of Caucasians, who previous to
the adoption of these constitutions par
ticipated in elections, have ceased to reg
ister and vote, anfl thus the very founda
tions of republican institutions have been
rendered insecurei _.
We contend ior our constitutional
rights on the grlund that the right of
suffrage which is the basis of the indi
vidual sovereignty of the American, citi
zen, which in tuni'is the basis, of the^ag
gregate sovereignly of the whole body
politic, has been conferred upon its citi
zens by the Federal Government. Th
powers of the Federal Government were
not conferred by a .single state but by all
of the states, therefore the National Gov
ernment can enforce the provisions, of the

We denounce the mob murders now so

of hate and proscription. W commend
