A Monkey and Parrot Time.
The deacons of Olivet church had a
meeting Monday night. There were
nine deacons four trustees and three
sisters, in all sixteen- persons present.
It was called ostensibly to investigate
notes which it is alleged were
stolen from the body of W. S. Johnson
when he dropped dead in the church,
March 28, 1887r1887~ The notes were
given by Mrs. F. A. Powell to cancel a
debt of $1,20 which she owed the
church for rooms occupied by her in
the old Olivet church building. Mrs.
Powell has paid the notes but som^ of
the sisters claim they were not paid
and were stolen from Johnson's dead
body. Sister Simpson asked for her
lotter saying she would not live a
church which was ruled
by one woman. She called dif
ferent members liars, devils, hypocrites
and deceitful "yaller niggers," (Mrs.
Simpson is herself yellow,) she said
'Let's drop this note question and talk
about the choir. I have not been
treated right. My grand-daughter
should be organist. There are plenty
of members who can sing just as well as
Mrs. Powell." Mrs. Simpson was
greatly excited and it looked as if
she would jump on Mrs. Powell then
and there. It would have been a great
sight as both of the ladies are evenly
matched. Mrs. Powell arose and in a
dignified manner said. "I will not
fight you, I'll run and if you molest me
I'll do my fight through the law. Mod
erator I prefer charges against sister
&inapson for calling me improper
names." The two sisters and all the
brothers were trying to talk at once
and the meeting became rather noisy.
Just then one of the deacons noticed
that the windows were open and said,
"We'd better shut these windows for
that awful APPEAL man may be listen
ing. All the brothers made a rush for
the windows and they were quickly
closed,but the APPEAL can hear through
a stone wall and got there just the
same. The sisters quieted down and
then the brothers began. Bro. Brown
said Bro. Stovall Avas drunk they called
each other liars, and Stovall shook his
fist at Brown and said, "You are the
man who has run every preacher
away." During all these proceedings
Rev. Thomas sat in mute astonishment.
He did not know what to say or do.
He certainlv has a deal of patience to
stand what he does in the church.
After the meeting adjourned the
brothers and sisters went to the corner
of Harmon Court and State and held
another open meeting which was quite
lively. The majority finally boarded a
street car going South and the
meeting broke up on 63d street.
Thursday night another meeting was
held to decide the case of Powell vs
Johnson. It was a hot meeting for not
a breath of air could enter there. At
the two meetings the brothers and
sisters had a monkey and Parrot time.

Rev. Frank was out of the city last
Sunday and a young white student from
the Southern Baptist Theological Sem
inary preached. The institution does
not admit Colored students and if their
school is to good for Mr. Negro the Ne
gro's pulpit ought to be too bad forthe
them. The white brother told a pretty
tough yarn about two men in a cave,
when their lights went out and they
groped about in the darkness on their
kness, casting pebbles, the sound of
which they followed. They cast a peb
ble which went beyond a stream of wa
ter in this cave, but they, thinking the
way was clear, fell into the stream and
were drowned. What we want to know
is, who saw this occurrence, and whyleft
did not he who saw it rescue the men?

The ratification meeting Tuesday
evening, to use a slang expression was
a "corker." Armory Hall would not
hold the people so an oyerflow meet
was addiessed on the outside by Hon.
Mahlon Chance while Hon. Roswell
G. Horr enthused the thousands on the
inside. The first gun of the campaign
was a big one. A considerable number
of St. Paulites were on hand and on the
27th we will return the compliment by
attending their ratification meeting.
Ida Dorsey and her sister, Colored
women, who run a maison do joie for
the especial patronage of white men
were "pulled" last Saturday night, and
a lot of their customers with them. The
Dorseys had to put up 200. and $50
each for nine of the depraved creatures
who live with them. The equally de
praved men put up $25 each. The
Dorseys "kick" because they are pulled
and white women are not. Discrimina
tion is odious, but the good Colored citi
zens of Minneapolis are only too happy
that it is made in this case, and would
only be too glad to see all such women,
not only driven from the citv, but en
tirely from the state.
