NOW, WHAT DO YOU THINK O
It has been generally supposed that
no white man is ever punished for
anything he does to a black one in
the South. But get that idea out of
your mind. Away down in Alabama
a white jury has actually convicted
two white men of murder in the first
degree, for killing one black man and
has given a third one, connected with
the killing, life imprisonment. And
that, too, in Jefferson county, where
for ten years it has been impossible
to convict anyone of first degree mur
der. These murderers enticed the
black man to the woods and shot him
to death, and concealed the body. As
their victim was only a black man, he
was not missed, and although that
was about a year ago, it was only re
cently that the crime was discovered.
It was also discovered that the mur
derers had seven other killings to
their credit. Most' of their victims
were shot from ambush, some for
grievances, others to close their
mouths one for the purpose of rob
bery and one "just for fun." Murder
in Jefferson county has been a weekly
incident for twenty years, and that
region became known as "Bloody Beat
22." The good people of that com
munity have just woke up, and as there
are more than a dozen prisoners in
the county jail charged with murder,
it may be that others will get their
just deserts. To which we say, amen!
IS LYNCHING A CRIME?
The question, Is lynching an acci-
dent?" is to be thrashed out in the
Louisiana courts. The point came up
at BatOH Rouge when the widow of
Frank Miles, an Afro-American, who
was lynched by a Shreveport mob,
filed preliminary proceedings against
an insurance company. The payment
of a $400 accident policy is demanded.
The petition does not specify that
Mills was a victim of an accident, but
recites that he was found "hanging
from the limb of a tree in the rear of
the base ball park with a rope tied
about his neck."

SAUCE FOR THE GANDER, SAUCE
FOR THE GOOSE.
Mrs. Mary Dubai of Birmingham, N.
Y, is believed to be the first suffra
gist in the United States to be given a
penitentiary sentence for husband
beating. She was arrested on a war
want obtained by Mr. Dubai, who com
plained that in a fit of rage she gave
him a sound beating. City Judge Al
bert Hotchkiss declared that if wom
en desired men's prerogatives, they
should also ha\e men's punishments.
He always dealt severely with wife
beaters, he said, and accordingly sen
tenced her to three months in the
penitentiary. Now, ladies, will you he
If this is a Christian age, and the
people of the United States are civ
ilized Christians, and the treatment
that was accorded Dr. dBen Reitman,
the manager of Emma Goldman, last
Wednesday, meets their approval,
then our understanding of what Chris
tian stands for is away off. Of course,
these were white Christians and
their victim was white, but that does
not alter the case except to make it
Republican Candidate for Re-election as Governor of Illinois.
Lynching cannot be classed as an
accident. Everywhere in the South,
and in a few localities in the North,
it is a fixed policy to lynch Afro
Americans chaiged with crime
At the general assembly of the
Southern Presbyterian church, at
Bristol, Tenn., there were majority
and minority reports on marriage and
divorce Both reports urged against
permitting polygamists to enter the
church, either in this or foreign lands.
No action was taken regarding the
thousands of Southerners who have
lived polygamous lives with Caucasian
and colored women. Many Southern
churchmen consider crossing the color
line in this way perfectly proper.
INTEREST IN SEGREGATION.
If there is need of evidence to con
vince any one of the groVwth of race
prejudice in this country it may be
found in the widespread interest in
segregation of the races in cities.
The plan of restricting Afro-Ameri
cans to certain neighborhoods has
been adopted in many of the smaller
cities of the South, but Baltimore is
the largest city in which the plan has
been enacted into law.
Samuel L. West, who.ejnjoys the un
enviable distinction of being the au
thor of the infamous West segrega
tion ordinance, announces that he has
sent copies of his race segregation
law from the Atlantic to the Pacific
cceans. He says that there is a de
nand for information from every part
of the country and he is kept busy
sending copies and replying to ques
tions about the working of the law.
The law works injustice to both races,
but West seems to glory his in

Every day we are more and more

Away back in 1884 John B. Kirchell,
of Kingston, N. Y, made a wager to
never cut his hair or shave his whis
kers if Blaine was not elected. Of
course he lost, and has paid his wager
faithfully, and his hair is now two
feet long and his whiskers reach to
his waist. What fool things people
do in connection with politics, and we
may look out for a lot of freak bets on
the coming presidential election.
REDUCTION OF REPRESENTA-

upon the actual Republican vote cast

THE NEGRO NATIONAL EDUCA-
The Negro National Congress is cre
ating a great deal of interest in the
various states in the Union, and is in
dorsed by many Governors, and the
following expressions are in common
with sentiment of the rest:
"I will take great pleasure in nam
ing a delegation to the Negro National
Educational Congress."Wm. Hodges
Mann, Governor of Virginia.
"I am pleased to reply with your
request, and appoint a delegation."
M. E Hay, Governor of the State of

tials to any citizen who expresses
desire to attend."A. J. Pothier, Gov

date."Hen W. Hooper, Governor of

addresses as fast as I can have them
prepared."C. S. Deneen, Governor of
"I will do the best I can in making
the selection of worthy men as dele
gates."John Burke, Governor of
"I shall appoint delegates from this
State to attend the Congress."B. F.
Carrall, Governor of Iowa.
"I am in thorough sympathy with
the object of the organization and
want to do everything I can to as

call Thursday from Mr. B. J. K. An

M. E. General Conference. Mr. An
derson is a native of Monrovia, Libe
ria, where his father, now deceased,
held the position of surveyor general
of the "Black Republic," and he him
self is a government surveyor. He
has spent several days in St. Paul
since the adjournment of the confer
ence, the guest of Mr. and Mrs. O. H.
Allen of St. Anthony avenue. He
speaks in the most glowing terms of
his native country and her possibil
ities, and says that a wrong idea pre
vails in regard to Africa as to its un
healthfulness, lack of progressiveness,
etc. Mr. Anderson is well educated
and well informed in regard to Libe
ria and in every way is a very pleasing
and interesting gentleman to meet. He
left for Chicago Thursday evening.
Some of the people to whom THE
APPEAL is as regularly sent as it is

act as though they are under neither
legal nor moral obligations to pay for
it when, as a matter of fact, they
are under both. There is no law com
pelling any one to receive THE AP
PEAL, but there is law to compel any
one to pay for it who receives it, upon
the principle of law that one must
pay for anything he receives. Order
ing a paper discontinued does not pay
any amount that may be due and un
paid, and the publisher has the right
to continue to send his paper until
whatever may be due for it is fully
paid then an order to discontinue
must be obeyed. It is hoped that
every one who reads this, that is in
debted to the paper, will bring or send
to the office the amount due- Every
one who receives THE APPEAL is
expected to pay for it.

and a flow of soul. Past Exalted

was very fine, consisting of sardines
