was not signed, and while it is ao.

Vm,1uS comhm:mications this one ap
pealed to him so strongly that he
thought it worth while to investigate
and he did and found the facts as
stated by this correspondent. He
acted immediately and in twenty
minutes after the letter was receiv
ed he was at the place and the board
ers referred to had received walking
orders and were departing. He in
formed the proprietor, a colored wo
man who lived just outs'de the city,
if the matter was called to his at
tention again he would have her in
the toils. of the law.
The letter was addressed to Mag
strate Chappell and Constable C. G.
Blease. The writer apologized for
writing a letter without signing it
but said she was a woman and did
not want to get before the public,
but that she was a mother and had
a boy she loved and she thought
this boarding house kept by this
colored woman was a menace to the
young manhood of the community.
The house is outside of town and
therefore beyond the jurisdiction of
the city authorities and She there
fore appealed to these two officials.
The letter continues: "I wrote a
letter to the sheriff just like this
one a few days ago, and he has paid
no attention to it, and I now write
you because I heard Mr. G. B. Cro
mer say on one occasion: that while
John Henry Chappell is often led
by prejudices you can always depend
upon him to do his duty.'"
