It may be reasoned from the large
amount of space which has recently
been given to Chicago, in the APPEAL,
that there is something in it, and there
is. We have determined to make the
APPEAL a Chicago paper, as well as the
organ of the Northwest, and hereafter,
the APPEAL will be published simul
taneously in St. Paul and Chicago. We
are having a veritable boom in Chicago,
and already have secured several
hundred bona fide subscribers. As
stateam a lormer issue, Prof.
Adams will have the management of
the paper in Chicago. It will be oui
aim to give especial prominence to
local and social news, and we will be
pleased to have our friends send in any
items bv mail, or otherwise, that may
be of interest. The Chicago office is in
the building, on the corner of Clark and

Rev. T. W. Hendeison, of Quinn
Chapel, Chicago, lemained with his
nephew, Rev. J. M. Henderson for
several days succeeding the quarterly
meeting. Rev. Hendeison, Sr.,
preached several very telling sermons,
which show him to be a man of broad
mind, liberal education and great native
ability. He ifa a man of strong and clear
convictions, of marked indivduality and
great force of character. W here could
abetter candidate for the bishopuc be
found, lalk about wanting men who
create a stir when they come to town,
he can't be beat.
The decesion ot the interstate com

It won't woik, and Colored people will
be subjected to the same old insults and
outrages as of yore. Oh,that these white
brothers of ours, could be made to put
themselves in our places but for one
day, and feel what we have felt, they
would then give us justice.
Rev. J. C. Price, president of Liv

A concert company, that has for its
main object the advertising of a quack
medicine, is playing in Little Rock,
Ark., and advertises through the papers
that "Negroes and improper characters,
will not be admitted." They w5ll
their medicine to all the Negroes
that want it however, but we hope it
will kill every one tnat buys it here
after, if any such can be found, after the
insult offered to them.
Some of the whites of Atlanta, Gar,
(home of New South Grady,) are very
indignant because Professor Salter, the
leading music teacher, instructs a class
of Colored pupils. Here in the great
West Colored teachers give instruction
to white pupUs, and no one thinks any
thing of it. Chicago has four and St.
Paul two Colored teachers in the public
schools, which are open to all regard
less of color.
The uniting of the the "Twin Cities"
into one, is provoking considerable dis
cussion pro. and con., and newspaper
comments are numerous. There are of
course, good things to be said on both
sides, but there is about as much like
lihood ot such a union, as there is of
prejudice against color dying out before
morning. It may happen but I doubt
There is a left handed barbet in

not considered good luck to be shaved

The dreadful cyclone, which visited
Mt. Vernon, 111., Monday, proves that

Between 12 and 1 o'clock a. m. on the
morning of the 15th inst, Deaf Bull, the
chief of the eight Indians held here as
prisoners of war since Nov. 15th, 1887
made a strenuous effort to kill his com
panions by attempting to cut their
throats while asleep, he nearly succeed
ed in ending the existance of two when
the guard that patrols around the pris^
on gave the alarm. Corporals Holly
and Sanders with a detail of men re
sponded to the call and enteied the
pnson room wheie the infuriated chief
was doing his wicked work. It was not
until they had dealt the blood-thirsty
Indian, Deaf Bull, several terrific blows
with the buts of their rifles, did he fall
to the floor. The post surgeon was sum
moned, he found that the chief had
made an ugly wound in the throats of
two of his tribe, and had also attempted
to cut his own throat.the doctor dressed
the wounds and ordered the handcuffs
to be put on Deaf Bull, he did not at all
appreciate his new bracelets, and in at
tempting to free his hands he broke his
right wrist. The room where the deed
was committed presented a horrible
spectacle. The wounded are resting

What? Whence? Where?
John Ruskin, we believe it was, who
said that the three most important
questions any human being could pro
pound to himself were "What am I?
Whence came I? Where am I going?"
With the spheres of religious or meta
physical speculation "The Burlington"
never meddles, believing in the right of
each one to answer these matters as he
deems best, but it can give the intend
ing traveler, or the seeker after rest or
pleasure, very satisfactory replies to
the three queries ibove.
What is "The Burlington?" The
best built, best eqipped, fastest running,
best managed for its patrons' comfort,
most obliging railroad in the North
Whence came "The Burlington?"
Evolved out of the "inner conciousness"
of capable railroad men who saw that
the "missing link" was a road which
should place the people of the North
west in connection with the admirable
and far reaching lines of The "Burling
Where does "The Burlington" go?
Well, it goes almost everywhere. For
more particular information on this
point write to W. J. C. Kenyon, Gen.

The event of the week, and in fact of
the season, was the grand masquerade

At 9:30 o'clock the grand march be
gan, only those who were in mask
taking part, but, as there were eighty of
them, as tbey wound around the hall,
under the glare of calcium lights of all
shades, the sight was beautiful to be
hold, and has never before been
equaled, even in Chicago.
During the evening, a banquet was
tendered to Mr. J. Q. Adams, of the
