"With this issue the "WESTERN APPEAL
is three years old, In the South, and in
other parts of the country, where
Colored people are more numerous
than they are in the Northwest, a jour
nal devoted to their interest might hope
to be of great service with an almost
absolute certainty of success. The
Colored population of this entire state
will not number more than that ot
the city of Chicago, yet the APPEAL has
lived through these three years with
less of the troubles than most young
journals have, and has been of great
benefit to the Colored people in this
section of the country and has done
fiome little good in other parts. Several
times during the fiist eighteen months
its troubles were about to overwhelm it,
but by the exertions of Messrs T. H.
Lyles, J. K. Hilyard and F. D. Parker,
svho were the owneis, it was piloted
"through the breakers. In Fehruary of
last year, the APPE VL became the pro
perty of a stock company with Mr. John
Neal, ol Minneapolis, as its president.
During the first five months the stock
holders were called on to render assist-
ance to the paper, but since last July it
has paid its own way and has steadily
increased in strength and power. There
have been some absurd ideas in the
minds of some people in regard to the
paper which could be easily obliterated
if such people would only take the
trouble to make inquiry of the proper
parties. The paper does not belong to
any set, sect, or clique, but to the whole
people and any man, woman or child,
who wishes to have a pecuniary interest
in it has only to purchase some of the
stock which can be obtained at this
office, from the secretary oi the com-
pany, or from the president in Minne
Three months ago we began to pub
lish a Chicago edition of the WESTERN
APPEAL under the management of C. F.
Adams, and at once the paper sprang
into popularity in the great "Negro
Mecca," and our able summary of local
and social news made the APPEAL a
welcome visitor at many of the houses
of the progressive citizens. The large
amount of Chicago news, not only in
creased our circulation in a phenommal
manner in Chicago, but in St. Paul and
Minneapolis, and in all parts of the
county and today we have a circulation
over NINE HUNDRED larger than it was
three months ago. This is something to
be proud of, and we feel just a little bit
that way. It will be noticed that our
list of advertisements has increased in a
corresponding ratio with our circula
tion, and, as the advertisements consti
tute the main support of most papers,
we are getting on nicely in that direc
tion. It is our intention to continue to
make innovations and improvements
ss rapidly as our patronage will justify
us in so doing. We hereby tender our
heartfelt thanks to each and every one
who has in any way aided us in reach-
ing this success and hope thev will con
tinue to bestow their favors so long as
we are worthy to receive them. "We are
working not only for the present but
the future and we need the support of
as many friends and patrons as we can
possibly get. With the next issue we
begin, our fourth year, and with the
earnest aid of the4many friends we now
have and that of those we hope to wvn
during the coming year we certainly
will be nearer the goal of our ambition
twelve months hence.
The General Conference of the A. M.
M. church in the selection Drs-
Arnett, Tanner, Gaines and Grant, as
bishops gives evidence of intelligence of
a high order, and has safely passed into
a new and promising era. Hearing of
the selection we sought Eev, J. M. Hen
derson, the pastor of St. James A. M. E.
church and asked his opinion, he said,
"On the whole it is good choice, but
the election of one of those men is a
surprise, and the failure to elect a cer
tain other man is still more of a sur
prise, but the delegates are composed
of some of the brainiest men of the con
nection and know what they are doing.
To have failed to elect Dr. Tanner
would have been a fatal error,his election
means the advancement of intelligence
and literature and is an assurance of true
progressiveness. Dr. Arnett is to the
A. M. E. Church what Blaine is to this
country, the best posted man on church
affairs in our connection, he also is
daring and energetic and is in just the
place now for which he was born. Drs.
Gaines and Grant have been successful
men in the pastorate and no doubt will
do credit to their new office, Dr. Lee

The Plaindealer entered upon the
sixth year of its existence last issue,
and celebrated the event by publishing
an anniversary edition of twenty pages
cut and pasted and enclosed in a tinted
coyer. The managers of the Plaindealer
have ever shown themselves to be men
of progressive ideas and to possess busi
ness capacity equal to the conducting of
one of the foremost newspapers issued
by Colored publishers in the United
States. The Plaindealer can now lay
just claim to having surpassed all other
publications in special editions, a credit
which heretofore belonged to The
Bulletin formerly published in Louis
ville, Ky., by the present editor and
his brother,uo\v manager of the Chicago
edition, of the WESTERN APPEAL, TVIIO in
August 1880 issued a sixteen page paper
five column quarto size. We congratu
late our able, enterpiising contempor
aries on their success and hope they
will live long and prosper.
The democrats of New York have
elected Matthews the ex-Recorder of
Deeds at Washington, as an alternate
delegate to the National Convention at
St. Louis, and are making a big blow
over the matter. Well, it is a big thing
for them to do, to even give a Colored
man such an empty honor, and they are
welcome to all the credit they can get
out of it. The republicans in several of
the states have sent a large number of
Colored delegates at large and district
delegates to their convention at Chicago
and don't think anything about it, as
thev only half did their duty in many
cases. A few alternates were also sent
but the men who accepted such posi-
tions in many cases were condemned
by the Colored press for accepting. An
alternate at large could have been sent
from this state but the Colored people
would not accept such an empty honor.
The candidacy of Mr. J. K. Hilyard
for the position of Market Master,
seems to be gaining ground. Should
his name come before the new council,
the members would be in a very awk
ward position if they failed to vote for
him. Among the many candidates,
Mr. Hilyard has the strongest claim and
is the most available one for the posi-
tion. We will see what we will see.
