The nomination of Mr. J. K. Uilyard
as one of the alderraen-at-large for the
city of S. Paul meets with the hearty
approval of the class of citiezns with
which he is identified, and with more
than oidmaiy- favor fiom other rlasses.
No matter how much we are opposed to
a class of citizens or a paity, there is
much satisfaction in seeing the best
men in such classes or parties put to
the fore. Mr. Hilyaid is one of the
oldest settlers in the city, coming here
when the metropolis was but a village,
he has lived to see it what it now is,
and, duimg all that time, has retained
the lespect oi all clabses of citizena.
The action of the Eepublicans in nom
inating Mr. Hilyard will have a
wonderful effect on the Colored voters
and stimulate thein to their best efforts
to elect the ticket, at the same it &bows
that there is a disposition to give us
some lecogmtion in the distribution of
political fciv orb. W are too distinct a
class to be o\ erlooked by accident and
when slighted we know it is by design.
The Democrats notice the outiageous
manner in which we are generall over
looked by the Republicans and make
considerable capital ont of it, and we
are veiy glad on this occasion that they
saved themselves. We are Republicans
and while Ave feel that our brother Rep
ublicans shamelessly ignored us in the
distribution of the loaves and fishes, we
are not inclined to go out of the party to
get lediess if we can get it on the in
side. There has been no moie faith
ful clasB than the Colored voters identi
fied with the Bepublican party, yet no
class has received less consideration at
their hands. Though the "Colored
troops fought nobly" during the last
state and county campaigns, there is
but one Colored man, to our knowledge,
Mr. F. D, Paiker, who has a political
position. Does anyone supposs that we
cannot see how we are studiously over
looked? Does anyone believe that one
poor insignificent second class clerk
ship, is a fair return for thefeatly of the
Colored votes? The Colored people are
tired of seeing everything handed out
to other classes and nothing offered to
them, and this nomination of Mr. Hil
yard, will be received as a straw which
shows which way the wind blows. I
does not require very much to satisfy us
but we want that little. W believe we
voice the sentiments of all the Colored
voters in saying we hope Mr. Hilyard
will be elected. We will do all in our
power to elect the whole ticket, but we
will elect Mr.^Hilyard sure if our votes
can do it.
From carefully made observations we
reach the conclusion that the nomination
of J. K. Hilyard will draw more strength
to the Republican ticket than any manis
on it. He is perhaps the one man of
the Colored people upon whom all will
unite even those who have hereto'ore
worked with the Democrats, Tnev
know his success means something for
them, as all of the race rise or fall wUh
the prominent members. If Hiiyard
atoes not in. i ahead of his ticket, blame
God fornuikmfl him Colored, as tbat ia
only reason anyone can hnvsfor
scratching him, and if he is not
scratched by so-called Republicans,
who are willing to be voted for by
Colored men but unwilling to vote for
them themselves, the votes he will
draw from other sources will cause him
to lead his ticket.
We are pleased to note the election of
John M. Lynch and James Hill as
delegates-at-Iarge, from Mississippi, to
the Republican National Convention.
This is a case of even division and will
have good effect. We do not ask for a
division here, we will be satisfied with
one. Republicans have been sending
delegates from Minnesota to the nation
al conventions for a quarter of a cen
tury and have never honored a Colored
man by sending him as delegate-at
large. Colored men have voted the
Republican ticket all this time just
same. We don't want to draw the
the color line, as we are all Republicans
and equals we just wish a Colored
Republican accidentally elected the
same way he has been accidentally

A. JB. Church Notes*.
The sad news of the death of Mrs.
Jacobs, wife of Rev. S. Jacobs, was
announced from the pulpit at St. James
Church, and tears trickled down the
cheeks of all, as the pastor in glowing
terms eulogized the memory of the de
paited saint. Aspint of sadness pre
vailed the worship during the whole
day, foi Sistei Jacobs was loved by all
The morning sermon was from the
theme, "Some Limitations to Self-Will."
The gist being, Man becomes a good
citizen and attains to his highest devel
opment as a man, by learning to submit
to rules, law and leadership. The choir
thioughout the day tendered excellent
music. The deep bass voice of Prof.
Lucca still i etains the melodious charm
which made him a favont in earlier
days. The Sabbath school was well at
tended, and veiy interesting. I re
viewing the lesson, the pastor refeied
to "Ben Hur, or A Tale of the Christ,"
and found several of the pupilb who had
read it, showing the pleasing fact that
our young people are of a decided Uter
aiy turn, The evening services were
interesting and largely attended. Dox
ology was sung exactly at 9:20 o'clock.
Hereafter no Sunday service will con

The trustees have put on foot a move
ment to iaise $1,500, 700 of which will
be needed by May 15th to meet ex
penses. A sewer is soon to be put in,
gas, sodding etc. About one hundred
books were given out with the reauest
that the holders turn in $10 apiece. All
the membeis present who were so sit
uated as to do so,took books and have
gone to work with the prayful earnest
ness which has always made everything
undertaken by this church a success.
The pastor plainly stated that it was
not the desire to insist upon any one to
solicit for the church who could not do
so with the full approval of their
friends, and those who could not con
sistently ask the public to aid them
were request to collect 10 from im
mediate friends. That the amount
will be raised is among the things most

From the edition of Geo. P. Rowell &
Co's "American Newspaper Directory,"
published April 2nd (its twentieth
year,) it appears that the Newspapers

in 10 years.
The publishers of the Directory assert
that the impression that when the pro
prietor of a newspaper undertakes to
Btate what has been his exact circula

an erroneous one: and they conspicu

Republican City Convention.
The convention met at Turner Hall
last Monday, and when called to order
by S. Nichols, chairman of the city
committee^the floor of the hall was filled
with eager republicans while the gallery
contained a goodly number of lookers
on. E McDonald was nominated
for temporary chairman, D. Reese,
secretary and W McMartin, assist
tant secretary. On motion a committee
on credentials composed of one mem
ber from each ward was appointed which
leported the list of delegates voted for
last Saturday, as entitled to seats in the
convention, excepting E. Hilton,
who was thought to not be a republican^
Mr. Hilton arose in his seat and de-*
clared that he was a republican and had
voted for Hayes, Garfielcj* *am*-laine.
The explanation of Mr. Hilton being
satisfactory he was allowed to retain his
seat, and the report of the committee
adopted. After the usual skirmishing
bushwnacking and wirepulling the
temporary organization was made per

proceeded with very little friction. The
result of the work was the nomination

Theie never has been a paper pub
lished which has not suffered more or
less from dead-beat subscribers. And
one of the peculiar things in connection
with these d. b. subscribers, is that they
are the ones that find the most fault
with the paper. The rule of the AP
PEAL is, that subscriptions must be paid
in advance, but, for various reasons, the
rule has been broken, and, now, there
are several subscribers who are in debt
to the paper. It seems that the Wright
Co. (Dak.) Democrat is a sufferer from
the same cause, and it gently, but uni
quely gives such subsreibers an idea of
the imremtability of the punishment
that awaits them. The fate of our de
linquent subsciibersmustbe the same,
so, as a warning to such, we publish
what the Dakota paper has to say on
"An editor works 365 days per year
to get out 52 issues of a paper, that's
labor. Once in a while somebody pays
him a year's subscription: that's capital
and once in a while some son of a dead
beat takes the paper for a year or two
and then vanishes without paying for
it: that's anarcny: but latter on justice
will overtake the last-named individual,

his deserts: that's h1.
