We arc glad to notice that the aspir
ants for legislative honors among the
Colored men of Cincinnati are getting
out of the way of Col. Robert Harlan
and giving him a clear track. One of
the unfortunate? characteristics amongus
is, that as soon as one Colored man
undertakes to do anything, a number of
others attempt to prevent him from suc
ceeding, in some way. We do not as a
rule, endavor to build up each other,
but to tear down. None of us are so
great, or so important, or so necessary
to this world, that so far as its moving
along smoothly is concerned, our ab
sence would have a more visible in
fluence upon it that the extraction of
one drop of water from the Atlantic
ocean, therefor it matters little which
one of us rises or falls except in so far
as we as a race rise or fall with him. It
certainly is better to go up in the scale
than down, and all our efforts should
have an upward tendency. When any
one of us, who is worthy, gets to the
front, we should all join in backing
him up and supporting him, and not by
backbiting and bickering endeavor to
tear him down. Especially should we
endeavor to act as a unit when our votes
can help a Colored brother, for the suc
cess of any one of us, helps to raise all
of us a little higherwo cau not get
much lower than we now are in the
eyes of the dominant raceunity is
needed among us, we must help one
another and then we will get more help
frour-olhers. We hope Col. Harlan will
receive the nomination for She legis
lature and re-election by a large ma
It was very gratifying to note the suc
cess of the Emancipation Day celebra
tion at the Minneapolis Exposition. It
was very gratifying have the man
agers state that the attendance on that
day was larger than on any other "'spe-
cial" day, and that on that day nothing
was lost or stolen, and no one was ar
rested, and no disturbances of any kind
occurred something that could not be
said for any other day since the exposi
tion opened. It was very gratifying to
have the managers state that
Hon, John Mercer Langston was
the only speaker who could hll the hall
with his voice and hold the attention
of the vast audience through his speech
lasting three quarters of an hour. It
was gratifying to note the
good the impression made by
the Colored People who were present.
It was gratifying to note the impartial,
fair and satisfactory manner in which
the newspapers in the twin cities re
ported the occasion with the single ex
ception of the St. Paul Globe, whose
low flung reporter assigned to that duty
let his nature get the better of his
spirit of fairness, if, indeed, he pos
sessed any. We don't expect much
from Democrats as a rule, but we
thought the management of the Globe
just enough to the Colored People to
prevent their hirelings from making
peurile attempts at ridiculing them
where they deserve nothing but praise.
The occasion was a grand and, grandly
carried out to a grand success.

Your correspondent noticed in the
last issue of the Chicago Conservator, a
piece under the heading "Run him in,"*
which has reference to Prof. C. A.John
son as a lecturer and an editor. The ar
ticle declares him to be an unmitigated I
fraud, and styles him "the reputed
editor of the alleged newspaper, British
Lion and American Eagle. How strange i
it does seem that such ignorance
should prevail among supposed intelli
gent people in charge of the Con
servator. In the first place they do not
seem to know that the British Lion and
the American Eagle are two distinct
papers edited by the same man but
published in two distinct countries
second, they cannot see (although it
is none of their business) how those
papers can be published and sent broad
cast to the world free of charge third,
they cannot see how a man can come in
to their city and flourish with his enter
prise and five papers, where they can
hardly eke out an existence, at pub
lishing a paper at two dollars per
annum and last, but not least, they do
net seem to like the idea ot a man
coming to Chicago, attending to his own
business and not paying special attention
to a hired sheet that is of no conse
quence to any one, and again from the
fact that they declare that they have
proclaimed him to be a fraud
which has had no effect upon the pub
lic mind whatever, goes to show that he
is pursuing a legitimate course and that
they have no weight or influence what
ever with them. Let the Conservator
continue to try to run him in, and they
will be dead and forgotten e'er Prof. C.
A. has ever been run in by them, or
any other weak-kneed contemporary
as they are. Your correspondent makes
this reference to the article from the
fact that he has seen several attacks on
Prof, through the columns of the Con
servator and being personally acquaint
ed with the gentleman, and having
heard him lecture in Boston, New
York, Buffalo, Hamilton, Toronto and
Chicago and knowing the Professors
ability, feel that it is simply an injus
tice that the Conservator is, attempting
to heap upon without any legiti

sary at the Great
For the past three weeks the WESEE*K
APPKAL has had considerable to say
about the celebration of the twenty-fifth
anniversary of the issuauce of the
Emancipation Proclamation and it was
with no little pride that we witnessed
the grand success of the celebration last
Thursday, as the large attendance ot
"Colored People gave the gratifying evi
dence that the APPUAL is read by our
people throughout the Northwest. The
was delightlul, a typical Minnesota day,
neither too cool nor too warm, but just
right. I seemed that the weather
tcieik had taken especial pains to iur
aiish just the sort of weather that was
.needed to allow all who felt disposed to
(celebrate the day so fraught with intei
es to us without fear of rain. As sooti
us the doors of the great exposition
were opened, throngs of Colored Peo
ple from all parts of the state and many
iroin adjoining states, Degan to crowd in
and they continued to do so until after
o'efock at night. The forenjon was.
spent in seeing the marvelous produc
tion of man's skill, which hll the im
uiense structure. At 2 o'clock Liber
ates magniheent band began to. pour
forth its sweet strains and the great
throng gathered around and filled the
o,()0U seats around the platform. At 2:30
tne committee oi arrangements, escort
ing Hon. John jaiercer Langston arrived
at tne exposition. They were met at
the main entrance Jay Manager C. M.
Palmer who led the way to the plat
form. When the entire party had been
grouped around the stand, photographs
were taken by the eminent, "veteran
photographer, Prof. P. Bali.
Mr. ft. T. Gray., president of the day,
stated the object of the celebration in a
short speecn. Rev VV. Morris
invoked Divine blessings in an appro
priate, elegant and masterly manner.
Mr. F. E, Wilson read the Emancipa
tion Proclamation. His enunciation
was distinct and forcible.
Mr. J. C. Todd then rendered a tenor
solo: "rfix feet of ground inaJie usaiiot
one size," in a manner winch won for
him loud applause. was followed
by a quartette "Sweet and Low rend

Heathcock, Mr. W-v A. Hiiyard and Mr.
John Luca in tlieir own matchless
Liberati then gave a cornet solo, "Sa-
wanee River" as only he can. Then
came the feature of the occasion the ad
dress by Hon. John Mercer Langston.
-Mr. Langston had paid an informal visit
to the exposition the day before and he
expressed fears that it would be impos
sible to make himself heard in the im
mense building, he therefor nerved
himself to the highest- pitch and it was
simply wonderful to hear his grand
voice overcome all obstructions and
reach the \ery outside of the vast
throng. After the iormal introduction
by President Gray,he said,in substance:
"Ladies and gentlemen: How can I
undertake to address you under these
circumstances? A once interesting to
every white* man d every black man
in tuis country. Oair constitution never
knew of any coioa -distinction, and it is
a subject of congratulation that this land
is covered with .feeedom from the broad
Atlantic to the boundless Pacific. I my
self aari the owner of myself* and am a
free born American citizen, capable of
enjoying the manifold privileges of the
sacred right of suffrage, as well as its at

He quoted largely from some of the
greatest law authorities on the vexed
question of colored citizenship, and con
cluded in some stirring words to advise
his listeners to be true to the great trust
imposed on them in being citizens of
this great republic, and at the same
time never to forget the grave, the
solem*n responsibility connected with
Mr. Langston was listened to with
marked attention by the vast concourse
and loudly applauded throughout, his
speech, which was pronounced by the
exposition authorities to be the most
eloqnent that has been delivered in the
exposition. At the close of Mr. Langs
ton's address, "Jobn Brown" was sung
by the whole audience with band ac
jcompaniment and was a grand feature
of the afternoon. After the singing the
people gathered about Mr. Langsten
and he was compelled to hold an infor
mal reception for about half an hour.
He met many old friends from all parts
of the jeountry eager to grasp him by
Mr. Langston was then escorted
through the exposition and the art gal
lery and then to the West hotel to take
a much needed rest. *s:
j.n tne evening the program consisted
of music by the band, soprano solo,
"Waiting," by Madam W. H. Clay con
tralto solo, "Take Me, Jamie
Dear," Miss Bertha Heathcock, and
a quartette, "Good Night, Beloved," by
Madam W. Clay, Miss Bertha Heath
cock, Mr. W. A. Hiiyard and Mr. John
Luca. The excellent singing of these
ladies and gentlemen is to well known
to need special mention at this time let
it suffice to say that they never sung
better, and, that their efforts were well
received, was evidenced bv the gener
ous applause which was showered down
upon them. The accomplished Miss
Lulu Griswold was the piano accompan

After the close of the exercises a ban
