The congiessional convention of the
Fourth Minnesota district which met
at Anoka Tuesday to nominate a re-
publican candidate for congress did its
work well. The result was as well
known hefoie as after the convention
and Capt. Samuel P. femder of Henne-
pin county was chosen. But for the
fact that Ramsey county had deter-
mined to compliment Judge Eea the
nomination would have been made
unanimously by acclamation. However
after the first ballot which stood 76 for
Snider and 23 for Rea, Hon. Albert
Scheffer, of the Ramsey delegation,
moved that the nomination be made
unanimous, which was done with a
hearty good will. The canvass of Capt.
Snider has been a manly, dignified one
and the convention which nominated
Mm was the most harmonious one
"Which was ever held in the district.
The honor Capt. Snider covets is no or-
dinary one, as this district is the largest
and richest in the United States and
therefore must be especially important
irom a partisan standpoint. In the
natural order of things the district
ought to be represented by a republi-
can and not as it is now by a democrat,
although that democrat be the embodi-
ment of alHhe good qualities possible
for a democrat to possess. Two yesrs ago
the republican candidate for the posi
tion was not the unanimous choice of
the voters of the party, and he did not
possess the attractive qualities that are
a necessity lor success. In the present
nominee the objectional attributes of
the last republican candidate are re-
placed by all those that attract men
and make the success of their possessor
doubly certain. The present incum
bent while making a very acceptable
officer in most respectB, always voted
with his party upon party measures and
measures affecting the nations interests
and therefore he did not fairly repre
sent the wisheB of a majority of his
constituents respecting these measures.
As the WESTERN APPEAL is the only
organ of the Colored people in the
great Northwest it becomes its duty to
try to point out the way for the people
to go, in this particular. Hon. Edmund
Rice is again the democratic candidate
for congress in opposition to Capt. Sni
der. We know that the Colored peo
ple of this district feel kindly toward
him for the recognition he gave them
while he was mayor of St. Paul and we
know that a number of them showed
their gratitude by working and voting
for him two years ago. To this showing
of gratitude we offer no objection, for a
lack of gratitude in mankind is one of
the things that we most abhor, but a
debt of gratitude like any other obli
gation, can be paid, and does not run on
and on ad in finitum. During the past
four years since the country has been
under democratic control the condition
of our brothers and sisters in the South
hae not been bettered but has steadily
grown worse, and no heed has been
taken to their cries by the democrats in
congress. We should therefore use
our utmost endeavors to send men to
congress from whom we may at least
ixopc to secure some relief for our op-
pressed relatives. Judging from the
antecedents as well as from the actions
of Capt. Snider we believe that in him
we will find such a man and now hav
ing paid the debt of gratitude we owed
to Mr. Rice let us look after a debt of
consanquinity by voting for Capt. Sni
der, and sending to congress from this
district an ardent supporter of the
principles of the party that at least
makes a profession of according to the
Colored man a fair showing, and the
party that has shown by former actions
that it -will i something for UB. TheTe
are thousands of Colored men and
women who, four years ago, held posi
tions of honor, trust and emolument
positions of respectability, that had a
tendency to elevate, improve and en
rich them, but, who, now, having^been
turned out by a democratic administra
tion are brewers of wood and drawers
of water, or something infinately worse.
We must have race pride, and must put
aside selfish ends once in a while and
do something for the welfare of others,
and by so doing, we will in the end get
our share of the benefits. "We rise or
fall together, and the sooner we learn
this lesson the better it will be for us
all. We published a sketch of the life
of Capt. Snider in our issue of Aug. 18ih
which it would be well for those who
did not i ead it to hunt up and read.
It will bear some testimony regarding
his feelings and actions where Colored
people are concerned, Hon. Edmund
Rice did not wish to be renominated
but he was too good a democrat to dis
obey the behests of his pai tv and so he
is their candidate again and will be
just as good a democrat in congiess as
he was hefoie. We wish to see this
district pioperly represented and to se
cure this end a republican must be
elected, we wish this from a republican
standpoint, we wish to see the district
represented in congress by a man who
will vote right on measuies affecting the
welfare of the Colored people of the
South, we wish this fiom a race stand
point. We believe Capt. Samuel P.
Snider to be the man that will fill the
bill and we hope every Colored man
will work fox him and vote for him and
thus be entitled to share in the glory of
his election which we feel sure will be
accomplished next November. And do
not vote for Smder alone but ote the
lepublican ticket fiom eend to eend.
Governor McGill did a long delayed
act of justice last week bv pardoning
Mr. Samuel McFailand wlio was serv
ing a term of seven years in the state
prison for a crime he did not commit.
Mr. McFailand had seived something
over two years of his time and was in
poor health and the act of the Governor
was one of justice and humanity. The
APPEAL has made seveml mentions of
the accused and the case/and did its
mite toward seeming the pardon of
McFarland. During his stay id the
prison McFarland won the good ^M
and esteem of Warden Stordock and all
the officers about the institution, all of
whom were glad to see him set at lib
erty. McFarland was the victim of cir
cumstances and race prejudice and
like poor dog Tray was punished for
being in bad company. His case should
be held up as a warning to other young
men who go in bad company. McFar
land says he has had enough of it and
earnestly promises to shun such society
in the future. We hope the people will
help him to keep his promises. He
seems to be a young man with a good
heart and should be assisted to begin
life anew and in the right direction.
The governor has the thanks of the
Colored people for his act of humanity
It is reported that a mob of 100 Col
ored men in Raleigh, N. C, one night
last week, forced the jailor to give up
keys, took Sherman Farrier, Colored, out
of the jail and hanged him. Farrier was
accused of of outraging a white woman.
On his breast was pinned a card with
the words: "We will protect our wom
en. Beware." This is a very fishy
story, and the card gives it away.
While men with bla kened faces are not
genuine Colored men.
President Cleveland has endeavored
to make a little political capital, by com
muting the sentence of Emanuel Pat
terson, Colored, a convicted murderer of
Arkansas, who was sentenced to hang
Sept. 28th, to imprisonment for life.
He will not make much however. If he
wishes to show his interest in the wel
fare of the Colored citizens he might do
something to stop the unwarranted
killing of them in the southern states.
Speaking of Republican victories
well, how was that one in Maine? All

and four fifths of the legislature elected

rality since 1886. Of course we have re
ferred to this before but it will do to

There was a Pound party tendered
Mr. and Mrs. Alex Smith last Tuesday
eve at their residence on the West
Side, given by Messrs Moses Davis and
William Rollan and Mrs. Dishmore.
Its principal object was to extend a
friendly hand of assistance to Mr.
Smith who has been quite ill for six
weeks or more. The attendance was
large and each one contributed a neat
parcel of choice table delicacies, aa a
token of loving sympathy and profound
friendship. Conspicuous among the
many were the Ryan hotel boys, who
distinguished themselves by their true
friendship and unbounded hospitality
After having a few jubilee songs by Mr.
Wm. Rohan's quartette, Mr. Moses
Davis made a prayer and he said at
his departure "May this entire party
leave you two in the Almighty's hands."
Those present were J. Christman,
R. Ridley, R. H. Scurray, Robt. Clarke,

A. M. E Church Notes.
The services at St. James in the
morning weie exceedingly interesting.
Mr.and Mrs. Hatcher united with the
church. In the afternoon about 100 St.
Paul people attended the dedicatory
services of St. Peters church at Minne
apolis. The St. Paul people contributed
$44.30 to St. Peters church. 14.30 was
given by Pilgrim Commanding K. T.
Owing to the stormy weather and the
lateness of their return fiom Minneap
olis, tne congregation at St. James was
much smaller than usual. Bishop
Brown preached one of the logical and
instructive sermons for which he is fa
mous. Rev. Dan'l. Harden was or
dained local deacon by the Bishop.
The beautiful ritualistic services were
used, this, together with the dignified
appearance of the venerable prelate
clothed in sacredotal vestment gave a
stately granduer to the services such as
could never be possibly attained under
the plain old fashioned methods of
worship. Some people say that' ritual
ism interferes with spirituality, but 'tis
not so, ior at the conclusion of the
Bishop's seimon, four persons arose
for prayer, and Jno. Johnson of Little
Rock, Ark., united with the church.
The A isit of Bishop Brown was indeed
enjoyed by all. He represents the re
finement, progressiveness and dignity
of African methodism. He is always
calm, dignified, yet simple and uassum
ing. His home life is cultured and re
fined, his social life lies in the highest
circles. He is fully conversant with all
the topics of the day, is not bound down
to the predjudices of the past, but ever
seeks to lead the people upward and
onward. Under his administration in
the west, the new churches at Denver,
Omaha, St. Paul and Minneapolis have
been built. These at present are the
four most beautiful structures owned
by our connection west of Philadelphia.
Rev. Reynolds goes to Chicago where
with $40,00) cash in hand he will erect
a church which undoubtedly will sur
pass any church in the connection
except the Metropolitan. All of this is
due to the progressive disposition of the
bishop. That the bishop is wide awake
is evidenced by his journalistic ventures.
It is through him that the WESTERN
EPISTLE, the prospectus of which ap
peared on the third page of the APPEAL
last week, is being started. Rev. T. W.
Henderson of Chicago will stand at the
head of the enterprise, associating with
himself. Rev. J. M. Henderson of St.

last Sunday evening, will never be for

mistake known as high tea. Tea and meat
