On next Tuesday the municipal elec
tion occurs and the opportunity will be
given foi the Colored element to dem
onstrate its powei which does not seem
to be fully realized by the average poli
tician Ilowev er this pow er should no
be abused but should be wielded in the
proper way. The ticket nominated by
the Repu&licai is a good one through
out taken as a whole and should be
beartily supported. As there aie rnnie
Coloied people living in South town
their main interest natuially centers
there and the candidates theie deserve
especial mention.
MA J. 11. R. DL \OUJS.G.
The candidate foi Assepsoi has served
two terms very acceptably to his con
stituents which is a recommendation of
itself. He has been fair and liberal in
his assessments and has not made them
oppressive to ar,y class. Undeibisad
lninistiation more Colored men have
been employed than under any other,
and he will be gratefully remembeied
Comes befoie the South Town people

Collector which was as successfully con
ducted by his predecessor Mr. G. Bass
Mr. Barnard was the choice of the Re
publicans at the primaries and as he is

qualifications to administer his office

The candidate for supervisor has
served a term in the office to which he
was elected at the head of his ticket.
His administration has been a successful
and popular one giving general satis
faction. There are no reasons why he
should not hold up his end of the log
this time.
Was unanimously re-nominated by
acclamation for the office of Town Clerk
which he so ably and acceptably fills at
present. The doctor was elected by a
rousing majority at the last election,
and as he has done nothing but make
friends, for the past year his election is
assured. Dr. McCallister is an old col
lege mate of the editor of THE APPEAL
and from many years personal acquaint
ance can fully endorse him as a fitting
representative of the Colored people in
whose interest he has been an able and
earnest worker ever since he has been
the city. Vote the entire ticket and
get all your friends to do the same, but
vote them and yourself for the Doctor
under any circumstances.
Of course the Colored candidates for
constables, G. B. Hutchinson, J. Q.
Grant, David Blackburn and Robert
Harris, Jr., will receive the solid sup
port of the Colored voters. Work is to
be done, and every man must be up
and doing Tuesday with a few prelimin
ary licks before that time. There is
little doubt that the entire ticket will
be elected, but a wise general never un
derrates the strength of the enemy so
therefore work from now until the polls
close Tuesday night, and victory must
be ours.

Alleged Bad Conduct of
Morton an Evansville
Charged With Debauching Girls.
Evansville, Ind., March 25.There is
a large-sized sensation in educational
circles in this city, which, coming, as it
does on the eve of a city election, is ex
citing the liveliest interest, especially as
it concerns a local Colored school*
teacher who is recognized as one of the
Colored leaders. Two weeks ago Mr.
Edward A. Clarke, Principal of the Col
Cfred Higt&t^bjgplj tendered his resigna
tioii-because nTB^ ^HmnTlity to control
the action of Frederick Douglass Mor
ton, an under teacher and Secretary of
the Board Police Commissioners. He
had frequently complained of Morton to
the Trustees, but Morton's influence
averted any punishment, and he became
more unbearable than ever. Clarke re
signed, but the board thus far has taken
no notice of him.
Piof. Clarke, Charges in effect that
school girls have been debauched by
Morton, who in turn told some of his
male pupils of it, and induced them to
also secure favors of the unfoitunate
victims: Clarke also charges that the
janitor of the school building had been
offered a bribe to allow Morton and two
pupils to pass the night in the building
in company with three girls, two white
and one Colored. Furtheimore it ts
alleged that the school house has ben
scene ol midnight orgies and political
debates, in which Morton was the cen
tral figure, and that the next morning
the rooms weie ledolent with tobacco
smoke, while the floor was filthy with
tobacco spit and stale beei.
it is alleged that the cause Inch led to4
the open rupture between Morton and
Clarke the former's demand on the
principal to allow him a class-room as a
private room, which was lefused.
These chaiges were made in a public
meeting and have created great excite
ment, and are street talk, but for some
reason the trustees are anxious to have
the matter suppressed, and have suc
ceeded in keeping it out of the city
It is lepoited from Lexington, Ivy.,
that Proctor Knott will surely run in the
Kentucky Derby, and that the great
Colored jockey, Isaac Murphy, has al

Death Loves a Shining Mark.
The gay city of Chicago had a veil of
impenetiable gloom and sadness cast
over it last week by the death of Mrs.
Eva May Waring, the estimable wife of
one of our most brilliant young men,
Mr. Frank B, Waring The deceased
was the eldest daughter of Charles and
Cornelia Weeklv, and was bom in Chi
cago May 8, 1868, being 20 years, 10
months and 12 days old at the time of
her death. She was a graduate of Keith
Grammar school and attended the High
school tor two years, which she left, a
little more than a year ago, to become
the wife of the man of her choice. Her
wedding took place on the first
anniveisary of the marriage of her
bosom fiiend and companion Mrs
Ida Henderson, who was called
from earth to glory only a few weeks
ago. Mrs. Waring, then in poor health,
attended the funeral of her friend and
it is thought that a cold contracted at
that time hastened hei own departuie
fiom the world. Little did she think
then, that so soon, she would join her
friend on the other shore, and, that be
fore the body of her friend was taken
from the vault, to be consigned to the
earth, from whence it came, her own
would be placed beside it in that le
ceptacle for the dead. On the 20th of
last December she looked into the eyes
of her first born, a lovely giil which had
been sent from heaven as a link to join
more closely the loving hearts of its
parents. They named her Edna May,
but since the death of the mother, the
father has changed her name to that of
Eva May, the one the mother bore and
which was the dearest name on earth to
him. The death of Mrs. Waring though
not unexpected was sudden. She had
said to her husband in the morning.
"You may go to work to day with a
light heait, for I am so much better,"
he was called home by telephone late
that afternoon to find her eyes closed in
death. The funeral took place at Quinn
Chapel Saturday at one o'clock the
church being crowded to overflowing by
the friends of the deceased. She had
been a member of Electa Chapter and
was the youngest member of Fidelitv
Court which order had charge of the
funeral. This was the first death oc
curring in the order since its organiza
tion over two years ago and a more im
pressive scene could scarcely be con
cieved than was witnessed as the mem
bers of the court with their funeral re
galia enshrouded in white veils rur
rounded the corpse and performed the
funeral rites of the order. The funeral
services began with singing, "Nearer
my God to Thee," followed by the read
ing of the 14th chapter of John, by Rev.
W. C. Trevan. "Come Ye Disconsolate,"
was then given out by Rev. W. Harri
son followed by a prayer by Rev. L. H.
Reynolds "Good Night," was rendered
by the choir. The funeral discourse was
delivered by Rev. T. W. Henderson and
was an eloquent and touching tribute to
to one who h#d been almost a daughter
