"The evil results of election frauds do
aiot expend themselves upon the voters
"who are robbed of their rightful influ
ence in public affairs.^The}.individual,
or community, or party, that practices
or connives at election frauds, has suf
fered irreparable injury and will sooner
or later realize that to exchange the
American system of majority rule for
minority control is notonly unlawful and
unpatriotic, but very unsafe for those
who promote it. The disfranchisement
of a single legal elector by fraud or in
timidation is a crime too grave to be re
garded lightly. The right of every qual
ified elector to cast one free ballot, and
to have it honestly counted, must not be
questioned. Every constitutional power
should be used to make this right secure
and to punish frauds upon the ballot.
Our Colored people do not ask special
legislation in their interest, but only to
be made secure in the common rights of
-American citizenship. They will, how
ever, naturally mistrust the sincerity of
those party leaders who appeal to their
xace for support only in those localities
Trtiere the suffrage is free and election
results doubtful, and compass their dis
franchisement where their votes would
l)e controlling and their choice can not
be coerced." It is a good time now to
xead and to carefully consider the above
manly, sensible and patriotic sentiments
taken from President Harrison's inau
gural. They are an open avowed and
distinct repudiation of the attempt to
eliminate the Colored man from the
Republican party, and has atone of con
tempt for any such policy. Like all else
that has come from the President, this
extract is emphatically positive. The
right to a free ballot, he says, "must not
be questioned. Every constitutional
jowe should be used." The phrase
"compass their disfranchisement," de
fines tersely just the policy of the white
man's Republican L'eague, and these
parties would do well to decide from
the above in what estimation they are
held by President Harrison, and men of
ense generally, without regard to their
political affiliations.
The Memphis Avalanche has its own
^peculiar views respecting the Forrest
3t riots and murders. It says: "The
snob killed the wrong man. If any
blood letting was to be done, the whites
who encouraged Neely in his swaggering
insolence and incited the rest of the Ne
groes to violence should have furnished
4he blood. Those who kindle the fire
fihould be held responsible for the con
flagration. Negroes are not naturally
inclined to deeds of violence. They are
aot born assassins. If they were the
portion of the South where they outnum
ber the whites 'would be to-day a howl
ing wilderness. On the contrary, the
Tast majority of them are peaceable and
prefer to live on good terms with their
white employers and neighbors. But
tnev are ignorant, and, like all ignorant
people, no matter what the color of their
akin., they become an easy prey to the
nttsejsiDulous men who seek to use them
/or selfiab purposes. Even then
^atfyd/&wofthem can be induced I the extent of the law!
&&W&6&&U, ferfft_-^
to engage in any open act of hostility
toward the whites." The Avalanche, it
will be noted entirely absolves the Col
ored men from blame for the riots. It
fails to specify what violence was com
mitted by them. There was none. The
Colored people simply declined to yote
for men who had for years foisted upon
them teachers who were objectionabV
to them. That was all the violenr
was anticipated upon their V^

prominent Re
publicans, of Virginia, headed by Gen.Glover.
Grover, recently held a conference at
the Ebbitt House, Washington. It is
understood this conference prepared a
plan of procedure for future political
campaigns in Virginia and also agreed
upon a line of action for the distribution
of Federal Patronage in the old Domin
ion. Mahone and his questionable
methods (as Secretary Blaine puts it)
must go and, the people, without being
bossed to death, are to be allowed the
ordinary privileges of freemen in their
political conduct. The different county
and district conventions should by all
means elect their chairman, the fairly
representative delegates of the people
doing the choosing and then, at the
next State convention, let some liberal
and able leader, like Col. Brady, be put
at the head of affairs to carry out the
wishes of the people (not his own per
sonal whims) in the interest of the pro
gress of the commonwealth. Virginia
is, without doubt, a Republican State,
All that is wanted is for the people of the
Old Dominion to exercise the full free
dom of citizenship, and she will give a
good account of herself at her State fall
President Harrison has made the fol
lowing appointment, viz: Hon. D. "VV
Ellison of Ark., Deputy U. S. Marshal
for the Eastern Dist., of Ark. Like all
of the appointments made by the Presi
dent that of Mr. Ellison is excellent.
Mr. Ellison has for many years, been a
resident of Helena and is a hard-work
ing, intelligent, enterprising man, who
has accumulated considerable property,
and in all respects stands high in the
community in which he resides. He has
held several local offices and filled them
honestly, efficiently and satisfactorily.
Mr. Ellison is fully competent to hold
the office is, in fact, specially well qual
ified to do so. We wish him great suc
cess, and know that he will achieve it.
Since it has become known that the
people of the LoneJStar State have sent
an urgent invitation to President Harri
son to visit them, Vicksburg, Miss., also
desires to honor him within her gates.
What a pity the denizens of that God
forsaken and benighted Mississippi can
not first honor themselves by granting
civil and political rights and priveleges
to her own population. If President
Harrison could see the State of Jefferson
Davis, as it really is, we would say, it is
his christian duty to go and stay not on
the order of his going. What's to hin
der a protracted visit to Arkansas and a
"neighborly call" on Louisiana, too,
while'he's out?
The brutal murder of Taylor Combs at
the Rochester insane asylum which has
just come to light shows that the damn
able prejudiceagainst color which seems
to be inherent in the breasts of the
whites in America exists only ina lesser
degree in the North than in the South.
Had Combs not been a Colored man he
would, in all probability, been alive to
day. A little of thejustice which ismeted
out to Colored men of the South, who are
only accused of crimes, should be given
to these two foreign born murderers of
the North.
The great Pennsylvania calamity
which has been the topic of every
one for the past nine days will
be more than a nine days wonder.
Thousands lost their lives, thou
sands more lost all their earthly
possessions, thousands lost friends and
relatives and its full terrible effects will
never be known. Words fail to give
any idea of the awful disaster and God
only knows why it was permitted to oc
cur. Truly may it be said in the midst
of life death is ever near.
Carter B. Harrison, a brother of the
President, has entered upon the dis
charge of his duties as IL S. Marshall for
the middle district of Tennessee. His
bond /or $20,000 has been signed by
eight Democrats and one Republican.
The eyes of Christendom are now on
Chicago and its treatment of the Cronin
case and nothing short of a full unravel
ling of the brutal treatment of the Doc
tor and the hanging of his murderers
will be considered satisfactory.

and Lexington, Mo., says:'' THE APPEAL

The Musicale.
There have been many enjoyable en
tertainments given in St. Paul in which
our talented folks took part but they
never appeared tobetter advantage than
on last Tuesday evening at the musicale
givenlby the St. Peter Clavers Sodality
in the new and elegant Cretin Hall on
the corner of Fort and Sixth streets.
The entertainment was given for the
benefit of St, S^ter Claver Catholic
church and its Success both from an ar
tistic and financial point of view was a
success beyond the most sanguine ex
pectations of the managers. The beau
tiful hall was completely filled with an
audience whose liberal and constant ap
plause testified unmistakably to tbeir
thorough satisfaction with, an enjoy
ment of thejunexceptionally well render
ed numbers. The acoustics of the hall is
the best of any in the city for the pfccu^
liarly sweet, harmonious voiceB of our
singers* and they covered themselves
with glory. The programme rendered
was as follows,: Introductory address,
President S. E. Hardy Overture, Prof.
Hilyard's orchestra quartette, "Sweet
and Low," Mesdames B. H. Wilson, VV.
H. Clay, Messrs. W. A. Hilyard, J. W.
Luca tenor solo, "Smiles May End in
Tears," Mr. C. H. Bush recitation,
"The Painters of Seville," Miss Edna
Buck duett,"Come to My Heart," Mrs.
H. Wilson, Mr. W. A. Hilyard piano
solo, "Leibach's Fifth Nocturne," Miss
Josie O'Keefe bass solo, "Rocked in
the Cradle of the Deep," Prof. J. W.
Luca soprana solo, "The Song that
Reached my Heart," Mrs. W. H. Clay
banjo duet (First appearance) Misses
Lulu and Nellie,Griswold chorus (By
request) "Steal Away," Mesdams B. H.
Wilson, W, H. Clay, K. M. Smith, Miss
Ella B. Smith, Messrs. C. H. Bush, W.
A. Hilyard, Prof. J. W. Luca soprano
solo, "Jack Won't Forget You," Mrs.
Katie Mason Smith, of Minneapolis so
prano solo, "Flowers of Love I Bring to
Thee," Miss E. Belle Smith quartette,
"Good Night," Mesdame Wilson and
Clay, Hilyard and Luca. Miss Lula
Griswold was pianist for the evening.
Every number was most admirably ren
dered and won encores which were re
sponded to in most cases.
Enjoyable as may have been the sweet
singing, the artistic playing and the
grand reading to many, perhaps, the
most enjoyable part was, the expres
sions of the just, humane, Christian
like sentiments of Archbishop Ireland
and Father Shanley who were called up
on to address the audience. These rev
erend gentlemen were most warm and
enthusiastic in their praises and com
pliments. Father Shanley said, "We
certainly are enjoying more genuine
music than thos? who are now at the
Peoples church attending the June Fes
tival" Archbishop Ireland said, "lam
glad to see this absence of the color line
and think this entertainment will be of
more benefit from an educational stand
point to the whites than the Colored
people." The noble, manly sentiments
ofArchbishopJIreland seemed to strike a
spmpathetic chord in the breabts of his
hearers largely composed of whites
and they were, of course, rolled as sweet
morsels under the tongues of his Col
ored auditors. Upon the whole the
occasion was a memorable one and will
not soon be forgotten nor lose its bene
ficial effects.
St. James A. M. E Church.
The services Sabbath morning will
never be forgotton. After the sermon,
as the choir sang in tender, touching
tones, a grey-haired wanderer with
weeping eyes came tremblingly and
humbly forward and knelt at the altar,
around him gathering scores of earnest
Christians. Many sobbed aloud as they
looked upon the touching sight all
knelt, and brother Harding an%! Father
Harrison lifted up their voices in prayer
for the wanderer, who had returned.
In the afternoon a goodly congrega
tion gathered to listen to the Ascension
day sermon preached to Pilgrim Com
mandry K. T., by Rev. J. M. Hender
son. The Commandry was well repres
sented the drill gave evidence of much
careful practice, the uniforms and
regalia were all handsome and costly.
The sermon reviewed the history of
Knight Templary, spoke of the primary
object of its organization, dwelt on the
work now before it, and enforced the
moral and religious principles which it
The Knights presented Rev. Hender
son $15.
The services at night were well at
tended. As the sermon was reported in
Pioneer Press no mention of it will be
here. Mr Bear united with the
church. Mr. Washington of Detroit was
present in the after-noon.
Mrs. Kellum was at ner accustomed
