THE BLOODY SOUTH.
The defeat of the Democratic ticket
has brought the race issue in the South
to a head. During all the years Bince
the war, men have been looking wise
and talking about the Negro problem,
many and ingenious are the theories
which June been pounded thousands
are the excuses which have been
brought forward as apologies for the
abnormal condition of things. So skill
fully have the real facts been disguised
that many have been lead to believe the
future of the Negro in the South was
bright and secure. However, the over
whelming defeat of the Democratic
party ao completely baffled the secret
hopes and plans of the Southern hiteSj
that they, maddened with disappoint-
ment, have rashly given expression to
their true feelings and let the cat out of
the bag. The article from Senator
Eustis, published in a late number of
the Forum, when read in the light of
the lynchings, murders, and mobs that
h^ve iollowed the election gives one
quite a reliable inBight into Southern
feeling toward the Negro. The utter
ances of the Southern Press and of
prominent men, advocatiug the disfran
chisement of the Negro all are unmis
takeable indices to the real feelings and
malignant designs of the South. The
time to smooth over things, t take
hopeful views, and spin long theories
has past. The outrage at Wehalak,
Miss., Dec. 17th, sounds the tocsin. It
reveals the fact that the white men of
the South hate the Negro citizens with
a hatred that is implacable, malignant,
and undying. So deep and strong is
this hatred, that grave senators are lead
by it to the perpretration of deeds that
would put Jessie James to the blush.
The whole South has laid aside every
principle of justice, honor, law and con
science and has with bared arms entered
in upon a carnival of blood. Unless de
cisive steps are taken for the defensive,
within five years the whole order ol
things in the South will be reversed and
the Negro will be the sufferer. On the
slightest of excuses, the whole of a
Southern community unites to murder
Negroes. Let one white man attack a
Negro and be defeated, then a score ol
white men unite to slay the victor
should his friends arise to his defense,
the press join the mob in shouting "in-
surrection" and the state is ready to
send her armed forces to the support o*
the cut-throat band. Who ever heard
of Southern courts or governors inter
posing to piotect Colored citizens from
white mobs who ever heard of ttem
failing to use their full power to conquor
any JSegro or body of ^egrc-SS that were
with any show of success defending
themselves against the whites? THE
SOUTH IS OBrrEKillSTED TO TAKE THE BIGHTS
-^CITIZENSHIP FROM THE BLACKM W, that
is the long and short of the whole mat-
ter. Within the last few weeks the
Judson Female Institute at Marion, Ga.,
was burned to the ground, and now
-comes the tidings that Lincoln Normal
Institute has shared the same. fate. A
religious Southern paper said editor
ially "The North and the Negro shall
never again rule the South, ballot or no
ballot, count or no count." The fervid
Grady but a few days ago said "Every
white youth must vow that the white
man shall rule the South." These ex*
preesionsare made in deadly earnest,
and are backed up by murders, outrages,
crimes and frauds that are unparaelleled
in the history of man's inhumanity to
man. For any Negro to stand still and
let these Hellish things go on, without
havin? done his part to protect his suf
feriug^ brother in the South, is rank
cowardice. W E ARE NOT HELPLLSS, THERE
is A WAY OF BAI/VATION. The Negro can
b-rescued from the folds of the Hell
born anaconda that with Develish ma
lice full, seeks to destroy him. THERE
IS A waY, AND A LAWFUL WAY. Let the
Negroes of free and glorious Minnesota
be the ones to take the first step. The
Times are ripe for action, let a feasable
plan once be presented and all the Ne
groes and their friends will rally to it.
Every Colored citizen of St. Paul, irre-
spective of party, denomination, or oc
cupation is now invited to consider this
matter. Sunday night Dec. 30tb, a great
mags meeting of Colored citizens will be
held at St. James Church, corner of Ful
ler and Jay street, Rev. J. M. Hender
son, will present the issue as it is. The
pastors and congregations of the various
churches will be invited to be present,
and the pastors will be invited to preach
a series of sermons on this subject.
This iB a great race question, let us unite
its consideration, laying aside what
ever difference that may divide us on
smaller issues. Don't forget the date.
Dec. 30th, Sabbath night, 7:30 p. m.
let every lover of his race be present
at St. James Church. Each and every
Colored citizen is cordially invited.
This meeting is only attended to place
the issue before every body, and will be
followed up by ceaseless, tireless efforts,
until all the influence and strength of
the Negro and* his friends in the land
have been concentrated. Go and hear
A web-footed, blear-eyed, camel-back
ed, bald-pated, cynical, old bachelor
who slings ink for a contemporary, casts
a slur at the women of Chicago as fol

adelphia sent his sweetheart a pair of
stockings with her initials in monogram
form worked on the instep, and now
every society lady in the City of Broth
erly Love ie having the same operation
performed on her hose. The craze is
liable to spread to other cities, but inas
much as the monograms attract atten
tion to the feet when low shoes are
worn, it is thought that the style will
never be i vogue i Chicago."

gave him the shake twenty years ago,
and, from the effects of which he has
never recovered. But we hurl the vile
aspertion back into his teeth and say
that so far as the lady patrons of the

does not apply to them as there is not

last hours. referred to the humamtj
show by the employer of the deceased,
and concluded by warning all to pre
pare for death. The ea&ket was opened
but the corpse was not in a condition to
be seen and the cabket was closed again.
Owing to many other duties that de
maud the Pastor's, time, the committal
services were periorined at the church
and Rev. Mitchell accompanied the re
mains to the grave. Owing to the large
number who attended the funeral, the
attendance at night while large was not

series of sermons were concluded.
In the morning the Pastor announced
that the meeting called for last Wednes

is, not to down a man but to help him
to become better. The church in this

stand and high moral ground. It
frowns on sin, and will not screen any
sinner, but it is always willing to help
any one to reform and become better.
