Rev. Simon Peter Anderson of
Central Baptist Church
St. Louis
Fleeces His Flock and Flies.
For ten years Rev. Simon Peter
Anderson, has been the pastor of Cent
ral Baptist Church, but the places that
knew him once know him no more.
Rev. Simon Peter has flown and, under
his wings, it is alleged, that he anied
away $1,400 of the funfls of the church.
On April 24th Anderson notified his
congregation* that he had to go to Sed-
It appears that Anderson is the Chair
man of the Bankmg and Finance Com
mittee of the churdi of which Stokes
was a member. The safe in the church
has two keys, one of which Stokes has
and Andeison the other. On the day
before leaving he went to Stokes
and asked him for his key so as
to get into the safe, as he wanted to de
posit the Easter collection money ($250)
the bank. Stokes gave up the kev
and that was the last seen of it. When
Stokes received the letter from Ander
son his suspicions became arroused and
in company with other members he
went to the church opened the safe,
only to find that the tin box supposed
to have contained $250 was empty
The arrangement that the church had
with the bank officials was that no
checks should be rcognized unless the
names of Anderson and Stokes appeared
on them. An investigation was begun.
It was found that Anderson has forged
the names of Stokes to seven checks
aggregating $1,190, and that his crime
dates back to June 1888. The forgery
was cleverly done. Instead of $1,200 to
their credit as they supposed the com
mittee found only .$15.47. They stood
speechless and looked at each other
and could hardly believe their eyes.
Chief Huebier was anthonzed to ofier
a reward of $100 for Anderson's arrest.
The description is as follows. Name,
S. P. Anderson, occupation, preacher
age 47 years 5 feet 6 inches in height
weight, 180 pounds.
The exact amount carried off by And
erson is asyet unknown as it is rumored
that he had several large sums belong
ing to members, for safe keeping.
He leaves a wife and two children.

and could not account for her husband

Editor THB APPEAL:*The Republican
state central committee has been in
session. It is a fact that A. M. Neely,
of Forrest City, former editor of the Ad
vocate will be recommended for Receiver
of the Land office in Little Rock, and
Judge M. W. Gibbs, will be recommend
ed for the mission to Hayti. Gen. Clay
ton and W. A. Webber, editor of the
Progress, the Republican paper of Little
Rock had a qaurrel and drew their pops
on each other but through the intervent
ion of friends no blood wasspilt. It cost
them, however fifty dollars and costs
apiece for "toting" pistols. The action
of the Federal Court in punishing some
of the patroits who were led by the
fears of Negro domination +o interfere
with the elections and the election offi
ers will have a salutary effect, in con
vinicing some folks that the goverment
of the United States is not a myth, and
the result will be that, hereafter there
will not be so much enthusiain in per
petrating these outrages. Serving a
year or two at Detroit, or paying Five
Hundred Dollars fine takes all the fun
out of the joke. Arkansaw.

One of the moat universal topics of
conversation upon the streets is of the
coming production of the new drama
written by "Hal Reid" entitled ''An
Ex-Convict" soon to be seen at the
Grand Opera. The romantic circum
stances under which this play was writ
ten creates much comment, as it was
wtitteninaprison cell of the peniten
tiary at Stillwater during the time Reid
was serving out his sentence of fifteen
years, so in reality the drama was writ
ten by "an ex-convict." The play is
said by those who have read it to be
one of the most interesting, meritorious
and pathetic dramas of modern times,
and will certainly pack the Grand for a
short engagement. Miss Agnes Hern
don the most beautiful woman upon the
American stage will create the leadnig
female role. It is in four acts, and the
following quotations from various acts
indicate that a beautiful sentiment pre
vaded it: "Why, look at it, boys, only
four years ago I was upright and re
spected with a lovely wife, earning
$2,000 a year, and DeVoe in some way
heard I had been a convict. He ex
posed me, and to-night you* see me what
I ama broken down, miserable wreck
Let a man be convicted once, no matter
how innocent he is, that awful stein
clings to him. Turn where he may he
cannot escape it, no matter how well he
does let the world find it out, and he
is turned away to sink as I have done to
the lowest depths of despair. I tell you
boys there are only two courses open to
an ex-convict scorned by the world, he
must either steal again or take his own
miserable life."Act II.
"I am nameless, an outcast, a wan
derer on the face of the earth, I am that
despised thing, an ex-convict."Act II.
"Because baby, because I am blind
may be I shall never see the light
again."-ActIV. -*y 7
"Save your falsehoods. You show
vour love for me by deserting me in my
hour of need."Act III.
Oh! how I thank God for you, my
baby. If God does not hear that prayer
there is no virtue prayer."Act II.
Oh! Jack! Jack! Whatever you are,
however you be, may our baby's prayer
protect you, my darling."Act II.
Thank you, my boy. It is well said
Nelson Taylor, W. that children are wiser than philoso-
phers. There are other courses open to
an ex-convict than suicide or stealing.
No matter how deep the disgrace, he
can live it down, and I promise you that
I'll never drink another dropno, not
if I live a hundred hears.Act III.
