One seldom picks up a daily paper but
he sees an account of the 1 vnching of som
Coloied man accused of committing rape
on some white female somewhere in the
South. These stories are of such fre
quent occurrence that we were inclined
to believe that rapes were seldom com
mited any where else than 'in the
South, and that -all rapists were black
and then victims white, but such
proved to not be the fact, as a most
diabolical, fiendish outrage was com-ity
mited on a Colored woman in this
city Tuesday evening, by a man with a
white skin but with a heart'blacker
witft crime than Egyptian darkness.
Mrs. Julia Payne, a handsome Col
ored woman, came to this city from
Marshall, Texas, about three weeks
ago, and stopped with Mrs. Emma
Glover, at the corner of Sixth and Rob
ert. She was^ anxious to get work and
had an advertisment for a situation
placed in the Globe, Tuesday morning
a fiend in human form saw and ans
wered it. He was" extremely polite and
affable, so Mrs. Glover told the APPEAL
representative -Wednesday morning,
and had the air of a gentelman. He
persuaded the poor victim to accomp
any him to his home, but instead of
taking her there where she hoped to
make an honest living, he lured her
across the river to ^*~tdriely'*spDt near:
Mohawk avenue and when She became
alarmed knocked her down and after a
severe struggle succeeded in outraging
her. He is a man of nearly twohundied
pounds weight while she will scaicely
weigh one hundred pounds. She is
very high spirited and fought like a
tiger but being sick and weak could not
withstand the big burly brute. Her
face and throat ai badly bruised and
she received severe internal injuries by
the brute pressing his knee in her side
while endeavoring to overcome her.
After accomplishing his devilish work,
the infernal scoundrel left his victim in
a semi-unconsious state and fled.
As soon as she was sufficiently recov
ered to walk, she went to a house in the
neighborhood and was directed to the
cars, and came to her boarding house
more dead than alive. She received
the necessary medical attention but is
in a precarious situation.
At this writing the hell-hound has not
been apprehended though the case is
fully known to the authorities. The
Colored people of Minnesota, and every
where else as a rule, are iuoffensive law
abiding citizens and do not believe in
lynch law, but if there ever as a case
that would justify the administering of it

he gets full justice.

Bro. A. Barry's able Defense.
i He is no Jew. Died in the
House of God.
Having had my attention called
several times to items in various papers
of the city regarding my expulsion Irom
5th street Baptist church, I deem it ad
visable 1o make a few statements
through your paper regaiding my case.
I united with the Baptist church
twenty-five years ago and to my best
knowledge have never been under
censuEe in any manner for living an
I ha\ ever believed in advancement
in knowledge, and in proving all things
and holding fast that which is good
I make no changes without caieful in
The following is an account of my ex
pulsion: Thg. question was asked, do
you believe it is a sin to work on Satur
day? My answer was, yes, sir. Then I
was asked, do you believe it a sin to
work on Sunday? I answered, no, sir.
Without allowing me any hearing at all,
I was at once expelled. However,
many failed to see the justice of such a
proceeding. Since that time some have
supposed that I was a Jew, others, that
I kept the Jewish Sabbath. By your
permission, I will briefly state what led
me to do as I have done. I have been
taught by men of acknowledged author
in the Baptist church, as well as by
the Bible, to have explicit faith in
Christ as our only Redeemer. In this
I am unchanged.
Next the Baptist literature, in har
mony with the Bible, has ever taught
that the ten commandments is the
eternal, unalterable, and perfect law of
God, and the only instrument wiitten
by his own hand, of which we have rec
ord. For proof of this read the follow
ing: "We believe that the law of God
is the eternal and unchangeable rule of
his moral government that it is holy,
just and good, etc."Baptist Church
Manual, Art. 12.
Mr. Spurgeon, of England, says:
'The law of God is a divine law, holy,
heavenly, perfect There is not
a command to many there is not one
too few."Sermons, p. 280.
The testimony below is from the
American Baptist Publication Society.
"The law as announced in the Sermon
on the Mount, is not an abrogation, but
an illumination of the law as it came
from Sinai."Baptist Teacher, Vol. 18,
No. 8, p. 366. Just before Moses was to
come down, the Lord gave him two ta
bles of stone, written with the finger of
God. They were the commandments,
which -were to be the law to the chil
dren of Israel.
But it was not only right for them to
keep themwe ought to do so too.
Ten commandments, all divine,
Every one of them is mine.
Ten commandments, all complete,
Every one for us to keep.
Our Little Ones, Vol. 14, No. 41, p. 164.
The Baptists do not stand alone hold
ing the above views, for the Methodists,
Presbyterians and others are in hearty
accord with them. Now in all this I
stand unchanged and believe it as firm
ly as I ever did. Therefore I conclude
I am a Protestant, and a Baptist of the
The reader will ask, then, why I was
expelled, and what can be the differ
ence? I reply, I am the true Baptist,
but my church has adopted the tradi
tions of men, and made void the com
mandments of God I practice the
Bible and Baptist teachings, but they
For proof of this I offer the following
arguments: Sunday the first day of the
week, as a day of rest is not a divine
institution. There was never but one
religious meeting on that day that we
have record of in the Bible. That was
anight meeting, and while Paul was
preaching the Desciples were rowing
the boat all night. Sunday morning,the
first day of the week, at break of day
Paul started nineteen miles on foot.
Not a word said about the sacredness of
the day or its observance as such Acts
Opposed to this, Paul kept seventy
eight Sabbaths as recorded in Acts 18 4,
11 It was his "manner" to do so. Acts
17.2. Gentiles kept it twenty-three
yeais after the resurrection. Acts 13:42,
44 18:4. It was a day of prayer. Acts
16: 13. The holy women kept after
Christ death. Luke 23 56. It was
Christ's "custom" to keep it. Luke 4:
16. He instituted it. Col. l:16 Heb.
1: 2, 3 Gen. 2:1, 3. It is the memorial
of creation. Ex. 20: 8,11, and the Sab
bath of the Lord thy God," not Jewish
Sabbath, for the Jews did not exist
until more than 2,000 years after crea
tion He plainly calls it "my holy day"
Is 58:13, and says He is Lord of the
Sabbath dayr Mark 2 28 Matt 12: 8
hence it is the Lord's day of Rev. 1:10.
It is mentioned 59 times in the New
Testament as an existing institution.
The 1st day is mentioned only eight
times six of theoe are found in the
Gospels, and refer to the resurrection
day. From these we learn that the 7th
day, or Saturday, is still the Sabbath.
Mar. 16:1, 2 Luke 23: 56 and 24:1, We
also learn that the Disciples did not
believe Christ had risen until they were
conyiheed while "they sat at meat" at
the close of the day. Jno. 20:19. 20
Now for additional proof ^thaff the
Baptists have forsaken their teachings,
or, rather, never did practice what they
taught, and like their sister churches
are only reformers in part. To a
genuine Protestant the Bible alone is
sufficient but as some, doubtless, would
like a brief statement of the origin of
Sunday observance, we will give it but
as it rests on tradition we will.of course,
have to leave the Bible to get our in
formation. And, so. for our additional
proof we must go to the pages of his
tory. The American Encyclopedia
gives the origin of the name Sunday as
follows: "Sunday (Sax.* sunnan doeg,)
the first day of the week, identical with
the Roman dies sohs (day of the sun.)"
The names of the days of the week now
in use were given by the Romans, who
were Pagans or worshipers of the
planets, and gave the names of their
gods to the days of the week. According
to the prophets, Daniel, Paul and John,
corruptions of doctrines would entei
the^church and the truth would be
trampled to the ground. Dan. 7: 25
2d Thess. 2:1, 7 Rev. 13:1, 8
Leading Protestant commentators
agree that these scriptures refer to the
Roman Power in its change from the
Pagan to the Papal form of religion
toe Papal being especially referred to.
The change of the Roman religion
was brought about in the following
manner: "There was a desire to amal
gamate the Chiistian doctrine with
other systems. They made a compound
of Christianity, Judaism and heathen
religion and speculation. Relics
of saints and martyrs were cherished
as sacred possessions. Religious obser
vances were multiplied and the church,
undei the Cnristian emperors, with its
array of clergy and of imposing ceie
monies, assumed much of the stateli
ness and visible splendor that had be
longed to the heathen system which it
had supplimented.' 'Fisher's Universal
History, p. 191, 193. In this eflort to
unite all classes the Sabbath of the
Lord was disregarded, and the ven
erable day of the sun intruded itself as
a riyal institution. Having no divine
sanction, we should expect to find it
upheld by human law, in order to es
tablish its observances. Notice the fol
lowing high authority: "It was Constan
tine the Great who first made a law
(A. D. 321,) for the proper observance
of Sunday."Encyc. Brit, art, Sunday,
7th edition, 1842. Now for a part of
Constantine's famous edict that we may
know what was proper Sunday observ
ance in his time. "Let all the judges
and town people, and the occupation
of all trades rest on the "veneHbfe'
of the sun,-but let those who are situated
in the country freely and at full liberty
attend to the business of agriculture,
because it often happens that no othei
day is so fit for sowing corn and plant
ing vines.The Amer. Encyc, ait.
Sunday, ed. of 1872, says: "Additions
were made to this order under various
emperors. In 538, A. D. the
third council of Orleans forbade all
labor on Suniay." The Catholic church,
which called the above council, became
fully established in the year 538. We
will now bring testimony from thib
church on the subject. In the Catholic
work called "Abridgement of Christian
Doctrine," is the following: "Ques.
How prove you that the church hath
power to command feasts and holy
days''* Ans. By the very act of chang
ing the Sabbath into Sunday, which
Protestants allow of and therefoie they
fondly contradict themselves by keep
ing Sunday strictly and breaking most party, he re\ iewed the differences be
other feasts commanded by the same
The observance of Sunday by Pro
testants is an homage they pay, in spite
of themselves, to the authority of the
Catholic church" Plain talk for Pro
testants, p. 213.
Now for admissions from eminent
Protestants: "The current notion that
Christ and his apostles authoritively
substituted the first day for the seventh,
is absolutely without any authority in
the New Testiment".Christian Union,
Jan. 19, 1882, (Lyman Abbott, Editor)
"It is now seen as it is admitted that
we must go to later than Apostolic
times for the establishmant of Sunday
observance."Christian at work) Pres
byterian) Feb. 18,1886.
Much more might be given on this,
and every point that has been intro
duced, but space forbids. I trust others
may be led to consider these things as
I have done, and be brought to realize
the blessing of God that obedience to
his truth can only bring. I have the
best wishes for my brethren, and desire
