The circulation of Colored contem
poraries in Chicago is about as follows:
Chicago Conservator 750
Detroit Plaindealer 140
Indianapolis World 110
Cleveland Gazette 50
Other Colored papers 100
VOUR HUNDRED AHEAD OF ALL.
rt will be seeen from the above that
the circulation of the APPEAL is 400
greater each week than the combined
circulation of all Colored papers. I
giving the circulations ol our contempor
aries we have endeavored to be fair.
The circulation of the Conservator is
taken from the American Newspaper
Directory for 1888 and also vouched for
by a gentleman formerly connected with
"the paper. I eve ry case the circulation
given has been proved by some person
connected with the paper named. We
believe the figures are true, but if not
we will cheerfulby correct them pro
vided the publisher will make affidavit
to the fact.
The Detroit Plaindealer says: ''The
WESTE CN APPEAL claims a circulation in
Chicago of over 1500 copies and says
that it is [)50 greater than the combined
circulation of all Afro-American papers
there. This may be true but if the
iigures on the other estimates are as far
wrong as the one made for the Plain
dealer, we must say the whole thing is
no good and is but the work of a
Now Mr. Plaindealer you know that
"the figures given by the APPEAL are
about correct. Not wishing to do you
an injustice the APPEAL has again inter
viewed the Chicago representative of
Plaindealer and he reiterates the state
ment that the average weekly circula
tion of the Plaindealer does not exceed
140 copies. It's easy to make a bluff
but Mr. Plaindealer are you willing to
swear that your average weekly circu
lation in Chicago during November ex
ceeded 140 copies? If so send on your
affidavit and we'll correct the figures.
All of the other papers mentioned
in the APPEAL'S circulation table
with one exception say nothing
and by their silence concede that our
figures are substantially correct. That
our figures are correct the people all
know. We have sworn it.
The Indianapolis World says that the
APPEAL makes several "broad assertions
.and big claims that are preposterous."
And further: "I the manager of the
.APPEAL does business on the square as
he claims, why does he cause to be pub
lished such statements and figures that
cannot bear him out."
Well Bvo. World we can prove our
assertions regarding circulation and in
this issue we swear that our statements
are true. "We believe that we gave the
correct figures when we stated that the
average Chicago circulation of the
World does not exceed 110 copies each
week. You say it is 600 well make an
affidavit as wc have done and we'll take
it all hack.

How it was Observed in the
Turkey and Pie in Plenty.
Thanksgiving day was ve ry generally
observed in Chicago. The people as
sembled at their various places of wor
ship gave thanks unto the Lord for his
great goodness and then proceeded to
ilemoliBU turkey, chicken fixin'e and
pumpkin pie. The APPEAL went the
rounds eating a- dinner at every place
he stopped so that by night fall he was
too full lor utterance.
At the Chapel, Tier. Henderson
preached at 11 a. m. Dinner was served
from 11 a. m* to 6 p. in. Two com
panies, "A" under Captain C. Hardy
and "B" under Capta in Brown, had
charge of the dinner arrangements and
the rivalry, was very exciting. The
APPEAL ate at both table and was happy.
The concert at night under the manage
ment of Sol. Taylor was a grand affair
and elicited much favorable comment.
There was preaching at 11 o'clock by
Eev. Jordan Chavis then a praise meet-
ing at 2:30. Dinner was served from 12
to o. The concert at night was well at
tended and thoroughly enjoyed by all.
Appropriate Thanksgiving services
were rendered at St. Thomas in the
morning-, at night the Women's Auxi
liary society gave a social and promen
ade at Lincoln Hall. Turkey oysters
and ice cream were served. Good
music was in attendance and dancing
was indulged in until a late hour.
AT ST. PAUL'S.
The theme lor morning service -was
"Why a nation as-well as an individual
should praise God." A paper on "The
origin of the National Thanksgiving"
was read. Then came the dinner. The
six classes were divided into two com
panies: No. 1, Mrs. Jane Boyd, presi
dent and No. 2 Mrs. Kate Eattelle,
president. The companies had separ
ate tables and one endeavored to outdo
the other. The APPEAL can testify that
the viands of the one were as good as
those of the other as he ate at both
tables. The social and concert at night
were nice affairs.
There was preaching at 11a. m. by
Eev. L. H. Eeynolds. At 12 dinner
was served by a-committee of ladies.
In the evening an excellent literary and
musical program consisting of solos,
duetts, quartettes, essays, etc. was

Ball was certainly one of the most en
joyable affairs of the season.

The subject of this sketch was horn in
the town of Greensborough, S.
October 12,1845. His parents were both
free and in good circumstances. His
father was the owner of a bakery and
confectionery, and, before Thomas was
tall enough to reach over the counter
without standing on a bench he was a
clerk therein* I is said that he early
evinc ed great business capacity, and,
at the age of twelve, had almost the
sole management of the store. His
father, foreseeing the approaching con
flict between the North and the South,
determined to get his family upon free
soil therefore, in 1859 the family landed
at Oberlin, Ohio. Within a week after
their arrival, Thomas, for the first
time in his life, entered a school. In
1865, he left Oberlin to enter the active
work of the ministry. His first charge
was at Hannibal, Mo. was at that
place pastor of the church and principal
of the Colored public school. Since
then Eev. Henderson has held the
principal charges in Missouri, Kansas
and Illinois. He was unanimously
electei chaplain of the House of Rep
resentatives of Kansas, and was at one
time a candidate for Lieutenant-Gover
nor. Soon after the election of Presi
dent Hayes, Mr. Henderson was urged
to accept a federal office but declined
because he was not willing to give up,
even for a time, the work of the gospel
ministry. He has often remarked that
he would rather be the pastor of a
church than to be President of the
United States. He was for three years,
a member of the Board of Education of
Lawrence, Kas., and also editor of the
Colored Citizen, since editor of the
Mouth Piece. is now pastor of the
largest Colored church of the West,
Quinn Chapel, Chicago, which has over
one thousand mambers. has been
in this charge three years and has taken
into the church in that time 962 persons
and expects to make up the thousand
by Christmas, and will then hold a grand
jubilee meeting over them. is
blessed with a most gifted and useful
wife and often says that more than
half of his great success in the ministry
is to be attributed to her earnest assis
tance. This model woman is universal
ly loved by the people and may be seen,
almost daily, on the hunt for some poor
suffering persons to render to them such
assistance as is in her power. Mr. Hen
derson is noted as the devoted friend ol
young men, and fully one half of his
great congregation is made up of the
hard working young men of our city.
Whenever the tide is against them, and
they need a friend, they always know
where to go. Mr. Henderson never
turns one of them away empty handed.
As a pulpit orator he has been con
sidered one of the ablest of his race.
Mrs. Susie Gordon, beloved wife of
Jas. Gordon died Nov. 20 at her late
residence 1006 W. Madison street, at the
age of 23. She was born in Virginia in
1865, came to Chicago in 1881 and was
married in 1887. Consumption was the
cause of her untimely death and during
her long illness she was patient. The
funeral services were held at St. Stephens
A.M. E church, Friday at 10 o'clock
A her request the choir sang *'Roek of
Ages." The funeral service was
preached by Rev. Knight. The
Souvenir, Musical and Literary Clubj of
which the deceased was a member, at
tended the funeral in a body each mem
ber wearing a white satin badge printed
in gold. The floral tributes were pro
fuse and very beautiful. The remains
were interred at Rose Hill Cemetery.

THE SUNNY SOUTH,
The Colored People of the Sun
South Their Progress
and Drawbacks by
Since June IGth I have, spent over
two thirds of the time in the States of
Georgia, Alabama, Mississipppi, Louis
iana and Texas and mnuh of this time
has been passed in small towns near the
larger ones in these respective commo
wealths, and aside from my business I
have found time to note the doings of
the race I am identified with. Despite
what may appear in the daily papers ef
our country against the Kegro, or, that
has a tendency to cause the readers to
think he is as he was when freed from
slavery that he has made but little pro
gress in his habits, his dialect, his re
ligion and his manner of doing busi
ness. The truth is, he has sought im
provement, he is anxious to learn,
obedient and' a close observer. As the
whites are in the community, so is he.
If they set examples, he follows and in
several villages I have visited in Mis
sissippi and Louisiana,, the Negro is set
ting the examples. Every opportunity
the Negro has had to elevate himself
he has taken advantage of it more so
down here than up North. I see
Negroes in every line of business that I
see the white man in, and when I in
quire who they are I am told, it is John
Smith or Will Brown,, who used to work
for the merchant, or the mechanic Mr.
so and so, in Georgia. They pay taxes
on over ten millions of dollars. A
Colored woman in Atlanta has already
taken the part of a philantrophist. She
is to build a ten thousand dollar home
for the Colored orphans of that State,
Every profession, every merchantile,
mechanical and agricultural branch has
its Negro representative, so much so
that I learn by inquiry that no
Negro is permitted to learn a trade as
an apprentice under a white man any
more. I am quite positive that a Negro
who is a pattern cutter was discharged
from the Galena Pacific Ey because
he was making a model for a patent he
evpects to spring uponthe world soon.
I other States I saw that skilled Negro
labor is not being encouraged^ but I
too remember this is true in the North,
true in St. Paul, true from New York to
California. There is not today 500 of
our boys and girls learning trades or
professions, yet many of the different
branches of business are chiefly in the
hands of men who claim to be our
friends, who seek ns and use us to
help them satisfy their ambition, in a
political way, yet close their doors in a
business way to our boys and girls who
have ambition to be other then waiters,
porters, etc., we do not like this and are
watching it. Outside of the city of New
Orleans our people in Louisiana are held
down. I Shreveport, Baton Rouge
and two other places of less note I saw
men of our race in little businesses for
themselves. I saw the mechanic, but
few apprentices, yet I gladly noted in
most every hamlet and town it has been
my lot to be in I know of my people
owning some land, and I have talked
to the clergy and school teachers and
leaders and tried to instill in them the
idea to teach their follows to get more
land and tq stop singing that old song,
5'You may have all the world but give
me Jesus." I Mississippi I found the
chief talk waa politics, in fact too mu.h
of it, but in yarious parts of the State
I saw much that made me feel proud.
And so it has been through all the sec
tions of this country of dense ij^norance,
of immortalit y, of crime, of churches
and of daily papers, The church has
played a poor partit has failed to
teach the doctrine that "all men are of
one blood" failed to instill many of the
truths taught by our blessed Christ.
The papers bow to the people and fail
to help mould their ideas into grander
thoughts. The result is justice is never
given to a ISTegro in a case of law when a
white man is involved. This is true,
the poo est deemled white person has
a better chance before the bar of the
court then our leading Colored men. I
know this to be true, I saw two eases of
the kind in Georgia and only a few days
ago one in Texas. I is tr ue as well in
New Orleans. If a white man insults
you it is best to take it. On several oi
the railroads especial cars are provided
for our people and such are of the
cheapest quality, and unless you area
servant with some family do not dare
to put your head into a sleeping car.
The press fails to decry any wrong done
a Colored person by whites. At a meet
ing in which I was present a short time
ago to take action upon a white man
raping a Colored girl of twelve years,
the paper next day said, "The coons
held an indignation meeting last night
and denounced the court for the heavy
imprisonment (8 months in jail) it put
upon a white man, etc., "truly the
Niggers are risin." In most places
here our people are compelled to go to
the back door when they would see the
person of the house, and as to eating,
we eat in the kitchen and sleep only at
Colored people's houses the writer had
to walk over two miles a short time ago
to get a bed at a Colored man's house in
a little town of Texas, and amid all
these wrongs heaped upon our race
they are coming. I have been in par
lors and seen there on the walls beauti
ful pictures the work of a daughter fine
embroidery work, neat sewing etc., the
work of the children. Our people are
not doing the excursion acts so much,
they are crying down camp meetings
and are fast learning this is an individual
fight, as I rise I raise the race men are
working hard to that- end, and I see
large forces of Negro laborers under
men of their own race, obeying them
and doing business with them as they
do with the whites. And now as to the
Negro as a voter. is as truly and
closely connected with the Republican
party as the Irishman is to the Catholic
lelLgion all that you read of his fidelity
is true with more. The recent victory
he has prayed for, worked for, rejoiced
over more than the North will under
stand. feels it is his Saviour, and he
believes it. The South is complaining,
it claims through their Journals they
ietr Negro DominationNegro Rule.
Tbey will not give the Negro credit of
is progress they fear he will ru le with
rods of iron fear they will be paid back
in their own coin. But such will not be
the case. I have talked to quite a few
Colored leaders and they will doubtles
be very conservative. Mississippi and
Louisiana will have Republican Gover
nors next election, and our people's
ambition is already raised to a point far
abo ve that, men who live in the No-rth.
think. Let us hope that the white Re
publicans of the North will show their
appreciation for us as a race too. While
politics is the ladder on which most of
them climb to fame, it is also one of the
chief ladders upon which we, as a race,
must climb to success. All things being
equal let us hope some of our Republi
can friends will open the doors of their
respective business houses for the ad
mission of our children so that we too
may have opportunities to cope with
other races besides in the political
arena. What shall the young educa
