By the death on the 11th inst. in Bal
timore of John H. E. Latrobe, the Re
public of Liberia lost one of herstaunch
est friends and practically its founder.
Mr. Latrobe at his death was eighty
eight years old and he was, during most
of his life, presideut of the American
Colonization society. He wrote the
Constitution for Liberia which, was
adopted by that Reyublic when formed.
He contributed his time and means to
this governmental experiment on the
Dark Continent and he died in the
belief that his pet republic would event
ually be a success.
Hon. Thos E. Miller of South Caro

Chicago on the 22d inst. the anniversary
of the Emancipation Proclamation and
also of the league's organization.
A delegation of members of the Gen.
ft. A. Alger Camp, No. 22, Sors of Veter
ans of this city, and members of the
O. A. R. and U. V. U. of this city called
on MPJ. William Warner, Commander
in-chief of the G. A. R. at the' Willard.
Hotel on Friday night. Mr. A. J. Lopez
of the War Dept. in a neat little speech
presented a copy of resolutions passed
by the Camp, thanking the Major for
his stand against the color line at the
Detroit G. A. R. encampment. The
Major replied by assuring that he would
always be found for the right.
Carter A. Stewart, Sr., who for many
years has been at the bead of the barber
shop at the Willard's hotel, died very
suddenly Thursdav morning. He was
67 years old and was at one time, Treas
urer of the School Board when munici
pal government was in force in the Dis

President Hanison has offered the
mission to San Domingo to Mr. William
Powell of Camden, N. J. He has not
accepted as yet. The last appointment
by the President of Colored men has
added much to the well deserved praise
of President Harrison. The indications
are now that the Colored voters of Olro,
Indiana, Illinois and New York are
unanimously in favor of Mr. Harrison in
1892. Rumors of bolting of the Colored
voters appear daily but subside in a
short time. The President is honest and
sincere with respect to the Colored man
and deserves a unanimous vote from
them in '92.
Hon. Frederick Douglas expressed
himself pleased with the appointment
of his successor at Port Au Prince. He
is now engaged jn literary work and says
that political offices will not induce him
to leave the literary field.

The election of Major McKinley of
Ohio, with the rest of the State ticket,
means that a republican President can
be elected next year. If the Democrats
were to succeed, and that is now con
ceded to be impossible, they would have
districted Ohio as Michigan has been
done, and thus get 1(3 votes in the elec
toral college. The party leaders in Ohio
on the Republican side are waging an
aggressive campaign and will win. The
young Colored men of that state are en
tering into the work with a zeal and
their advent means that young men of
tne race are beginning to work out the
destiny of the race by showing their
fealty to the party of principal and pro-
An exciting scene took place in Judge
Kimball's court in this city a few days
ago. Lawyer Hewlett has a client on
trial, and Mr Neil Dumont, prosecuting
attorney, referred to both Mr. Hewlett
and his client as "creatuies." This
brought Mr. Hewlett to his feet and
quite a wordy wrangle was engaged in
After the Court had bee orderlv, Mr.
Hewlett refused to argue it, saying, "If
the prosecuting attorney was either a
lawyer ar a gentleman, I would have
something to say, but under the circum
stances I have nothii to say." This
was a sharp rebuke, but had Mr. Durant
desired to engage in a vindication of his
honor or dishonor, he would have found

The Afro-Americans of Minnesota Take
They Propose to Test The Constitution
ality of the Recently Enacted Separate
Car Act,now in Force in the South
And Let Their Money Talk.
A few weeks ago the Langston City
Herald, Oklahoma Territory, published
a statement offerine to give $'.0.00 toward
testing the Constitutionality of the sepa
rate car laws in force in several states
of the South, provided that 50 of the
leading Afro-American- journals would
do the same. THE APPEAL followed next
week by offering to give $100 when 49
other journals paid in $50 each. Since
that lime the Afro-Americans of Minn
esota lave held a mass meeting in St.
Paul at which the followii resolutions
were unanimously passed:
Reaffirming our declaration heretofore made
that every Colored citizen has been most flagrantly
insulted and his citizenship debased by the enact
ment of the odious separate car act which went
into effect in Tennessee on June 12, 1891, and be"
lieving it to be a duty to ourselves and race to have
the validity of said act tested in the highest court
of our land, be it
Resolved, that we assembled do constitute and
appoint a committee of twelve whose duty it shall
be to devise such ways and means as they may
deem best to the end of instituting such proceed-.
ings as are necessary to test the constitutionality
of said act and said comniitee when appointed are
hereby given plenary power to collect and expend
funds and to do all other things necessary in the
Resolved, further, that as soon as practicable
said committee shall issue an address through
the press and pulpit soliciting popular subscription
and co-operation for the purpose of the promotion
of the premises.
A subscription list was opened and the
sub^cripti .ns began to pour in in a man
ner which showed that the people pres
ent were in earnest. As the only way
in which one can show he is in earnest
in this matter is by paying in his cash,
THE APPEAL deBires to show where it
stands and has deposited in the Savings
Bank of St. Paul the sum of One Hun

She Was Hugged Too Hard.
Several days ago a local physician at
Alton, III., was called to treat a young
lady who complained of a sharp pain in
her side. To all appearances it was a
casse of pleuriBy and the doctor treated
her for that malady without effect. A
little questioning elicited the fact that
her pain dated from the time a muscular
young man paid her a'visit. The physi
cian made an examination and ascer
tained that the young iaJjy had a rib
broken. It is inferred that the young
man hugged her so hard that thje broken
rib was the consequence. The panics
to this unfortunate and very peculiar
affair are prominent in social circles and

Murderer Caught After Five Years.
In 1886. vv*illiam Copeland a patrolman
of Little Rock, Ark., undertook to arrest
a "truety" of the penitentiary named
Louis Simpson who was found walking
about the streets after night having had
strict orders to that effect. Simpson
said he had a pass from the Warden
but Copeland paid no attention to this
and attempted to make the arrest.
Simpson resisted and ran, Copeland fired
at him and be fell as though shot. Cope
land put up his pistol and going up to
the man leaned over him. W^hilein
this position Simpson suddenly jumped
up and struck Copeland a blow on the
head witti some blunt instrument and
cut him with* a razor. Copeland fell and
expired in a few.moments. Simpson
escaped and all efforts to capture him
were unsuccessful. The Grand Jury of
the following fall indicted him for mur
der in the first degree. As the case oc
curred five years ago it was almost forr
gotten when last week Sheriff Hamilton
of Ouachita County arrived in Little
Rock from New Orleans with the mur-
derer. Simpson confesses having com
mitted the murder, but claims that John
McMillan another convict assisted him
in "doing up" Copeland. McMillan has
been placed in jail.

and a very popular officer. He was at

County. His widow is a sister of J.
