Tht interest in the coming celebration
at the fetate Fair Grounds Thursday,
August 1st, is hourly, increasing as the
time approaches. The people are pleas
ed with the idea of holding a celebra
tion, on the beautiful Fair Grounds. It
must be lemembered that the occasion
is in no wise a picnic where one goes to
loll aiouL.d in the woods but a day of
celebration in commemoration of the
emancipation of the laves in the West
Indies. Every one knows there is am
ple sitting room on the grana stand,
which is shady, airy, and comfortable.
Here those who attend mav sit and wit
ness the gieat trotting races, of which
there will be several the contest for the
finest rig, occupied by a lady and gentle
men the grand exhibition foot-race of
220 yards by the handsome young spirit

by the crack runners of the state, and
the great sweepstakes race with its nu
merous entries the shooting match at
clay pigeons the great ten-mile bycicle
race the base ball games and the other
amusements that will be provided. Mu
sic will be furnished by the brass band
during these contests and between the
speeches. Look at the array of talent
among the speakers never before have
so much been gathered together the
two new Colored lawyers, Messrs. F. L.

besides there will be some other inter
esting features added to the liter
ary programme of the day. For the lov
ers of dancing two pavillions are provid
ed remote from the grand stand, where
they may dance to their heart's content
during the entire'day. Excellent music
has been provided.
This is not a picnic where some folks
go to great expense to get up lunch bas
kets and feed a lot of folks that don't
take any, but dinner may be enjoyed in
the large dining hall and and all sorts of
refreshments obtained from the differ
ent stands at moderate ratee. Of course
any one who chooses to do so may take
a lunch along, but the trouble and ex
pense may be obviated by obtaining
dinner on the ground.
The Fair Grounds ar so close to each
of the twin cities tli at all the young
bloods are contemplating driving out,
thus having that pleasure added to the
day,8 enjoyment. Parties can also be
made up to go to the grounds from eith

The Press and its influence was dis
cussed at the Unique Baptist church
last Sunday evening by their eloquent
pastor, Rev. J. W. Dungee. The meet
ing-house was crowded with attentive
listeners who evidently profited by the
discourse. The Rev. took for his text,
Learn to do well. 1st Ch%p. and 19th
verse of Isaiah, and began with scriptori
al illustrations and quotations until, by
forcible argument, he applied his text
to the public Press. He defined the
Press as a public educator and moulder
of public opinion. He said: Our Col
ored Press to us is, or should be in the
same degree what the public Press is to
the general public. It is growing and
keeping step with the timeB." He spoke
of the general Presshow it was sup
ported by the white people, saying the
facilities are given to the industrious.
He spoke of the late war "f the Colored
race being turned out of slavery into a
world of responsibilities without the
church organization or the public Press
to assist. He told the story of an old
preacher who would always thank the
Lord for not having "book lurnin'
illustrating the general condition of our
race at that time. He showed how, by
the influence of our Press, and the zeal
ous efforts of the puplic educators, we
have emerged from the dark ages of the
pa6t. The growth of our Press, he said,
is steady, keeping pace with the times.
Some of its failures are due to the non
support of its constituents, or people of
whom we expect co-operation and sup
port. This was due, he said, to them
having failed to learn how to do well.
Again, he said, the Press was a moulder
of public opinion, and if the sentiments
of the Press are debased, then public
sentiments are, also. But if their senti
ments are pious, truthful and elevating,
then public opinion is to the same de
gree elevated and benefited. O, -"give
us a strong, pure, able Press." "Thank
God lor more strong and able editors,"
he said, that they may go hand in hanu
with the pulpit of our land to a higher
and better land. He spoke of the de
based sentiments of the Southern Press,
of how the Colored people are murder
ed there, and the public minds are al
lowed to rest undisturbed.
The Colored Press of the South is
wholly unable to cope with their sur
rounding contingencies made by the de
based condition of public sentiment. He
spoke of the good that the Colored Press
of South Carolina has done.
One hundred and sixty-five journals
and periodicals are published by Color
ed people, all lacking support. He
thought support should only be given to
merit and not for charity. He spoke of
the Forum and our magazines as repre
sentative work. As for a field for the
Colored Press in the Northwest, he said
we have a large one we need our Press
to advocate the civil, political and equal
rights of our citizens. They fall short of
their duty when they don't do it. They
need.to give the workings of our churches
and to discuss social, moral and other
topics of to-day. The daily papers of
Minneapolis and St. Paul, he said, prac
tically ignores us. He said he was not
there to advertise newspapers, and when
they became digressive then they should
lose their support. He thought our
fault to be, wanting to publish things
which our enemies are desirous of pub-
He feared that our Press here is not
fearless enough in discussing our civil
rights. He concluded by again urging
the Press and pulpit to unite hand in
hand in forwarding pure public senti
ments for all that is right.
I Anticipation of Judgment Day
the New Messiah Provides
Mea ns for Reaching:
Heaven by a New Route.
Savannah, Ga., July 16.Liberty
County is excited over the proceedings
of Dupont Bell, of Circleville, Ohio, who
claims to be the New Messiah. He is a
tall, sallow individual, with long black
hair. Senator Brad well, who lives at
Hinesville, is kept constantly informed
as to the latest developments in the case.
"This man," he said, "appeared sud
denly six weeks ago. He proclaimed
himself the Son of God, and the Colored
people went mad over him.
To follow him, and now things are so
bad that it is impossible to get hands on
the plantations near Riceborough. The
Colored peoole kneel before him and
struggle with each other for the privilege
of kissing his feet. He has told them
that the judgment Day will be here the
16th of August. He says the white peo
ple have enjoyed their paradise on earth
for the last eighteen centuries, and now
it will be the black man's turn. On the
eagerly-looked-for 16th every white man
Ani black man white. He says his
body was born thirty years ago in Ohio,
but his soul has been since the world
began. On the 28th of June he was ar
rested on a charge of vagrancy, but it
was impossible to hold him on such a
charge, as he had a quantity of money
in his possession. If he were to be ar
rested now 500 Colored men would be
ready to go on his bond, and the women
would tear the building down where he
was confined with their fingers to get
him out. His
Are peculiar. The last effort was a
declaration that he had sent to his au
gust father for a consignment of wings
which the Colored people will need on
and after the 15th of August. There was
a corner on wings when his requisition
reached heaven, and the Almighty was
only able to Bend 330 pairs. These he
claimed, would be delivered on judgment
day, and, in the meanwhile, he would
sell them at $5 a pair. Every pair has
been bought and paid for. He thinks his
father may be able to send him a few
more pairs
Bell is now confined at the State Lu
natic Asylum at Milledgeville. His
teachings made such a disturbance in
Liberty County, that a warrant for luna
cy was was sworn out, and recently he
was arrested at Fleming. Tbe arrest was
made at baybreak to prevent the Color*
ed people coming to his assistance.

Collared Collar-girl and Cash.
Cincinnati, O., July 15.Jefferson
Kinney, the Colored collector of the El
ectric Laundry has i skipped with be
tween $300 and 9500 belonging to his
employer. As might be expected, there
is a girl in the case.
Kinney disappeared early Friday
night, and at the same time Julia Con
nelly, a pretty white girl, who is collar
ironer, is missing.
There is every reason to believe that
Kinney and the girl have eloped, as
their actions in the past caused the em
ployees of the laundry to talk. There
was every indication that the pair were
in love with each other.
Kinney is a married man and lived
with his wife and two children on Mc
Allister street. He is a mullatto, good
looking, and a neat dresser. He entered
the employ of the Electric Laundry
about ten years ago. Being polite, he
soon pushed his way up in the estima
tion of his employer, Mr. Spickerman.
He was the principal employe of tbe
place. He collected all the bills, had
the combination of the safe and had
general control of the business. y*'#7
