The Colored families that are without
a Colored'paper are twenty years be-
hind the times.
The Negro who does not try to secure
Jfor his children at least a common
school education, is a fool.
Would it be 'wise for the Negro to at
tempt to meet force with force, and de
mand blood for blood? We say yes. An
eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth,
Bishop Turner, in the Constitution, a
white paper published in Georgia, says
that the Negroes should be placed in a
colony to themselves. This ie the same
philosopher who has found gold in the
In the southern states where the Ne
gro JB in the majority, why is it the
whites not only control all the affairs of
state but are able also to perpetrate
with impunity all manner, of outrages
upon this people?
The Negro Press is a greater factor in
the elevation of the race than most peo
ple realise. "We looked over thirty ex
changes the other week and with one
exception, iu each of them found good
and strong editorial comments upon the
violent outbreaks which have followed
the election. These exchanges were all
ublish* in the south.
THE BLOODY SOUTH.
The defeat of the Democratic ticket
has brought the race issue the South
to a head. During all the years since
the war, men have been looking wise
and talking about the Negro problem,
many and ingenious are the theories
which have been pounded thousands
are the excuses which have been
brought forward as apologies for the
abnormal condition of things. So skill
fully have the real facts been disguised
that many have been lead to believe the
future of the Negro in the South was
bright and secure. However, the over-
AV helming defeat of the Democratic
party ao completely baffled the secret
hopeB and plans of the Southern -whites,
that they, maddened with disappoint
ment, have rashly given expression to
their true feelings and let the cat out of
the bag. The article from Senator
Eustis, published in a late number of
the Forum, when read in the light of
the lyncbings, murders, and mobs that
have lollowed the election gives one
quite a reliable insight into Southern
feeling toward the Negro. The utter
ances of the Southern Press and of
prominent men, advocating the disfran
chisement of the Negro all are unmis
takeable indices to the real feelings and
malignant designs of the South. The
time to smooth over things, te take
hopeful views, and spin long theories
has past The outrage at Wehalak,
Miss,, Dec, 17th, sounds the tocsin, I
reveals the fact that the white men of
the South hate the Negro citizens with
a hatred that is implacable, malignant,
and undying. So deep and strong is
this hatred, that grave senators are lead
by it to the perpretration of deeds that
would put Jessie James to the blush.
The whole South has laid aside every
principle of justice, honor, law and con
science and has with bared arms entered
in upon a carnival of blood. Unless de
cisive steps are taken for the defensive,
within five years the whole order of
things in the South will be reversed and
the Negro will be the sufferer. On the
slightest oi excuses, the whole of a
Southern community unites to murder
Negroes. Let one white man attack a
Negro and be defeated, then a score of
white men unite to slay the victor
should his friends arise to his defense,
the press join the mob in shouting "in-
surrection" and the state is ready to
send her armed forces to the support oi
the cut-throat band. Who ever heard
of Southern courts or governors inter
posing to protect Colored citizens from
white mobs who ever heard of them"

any Negro or body of Negroes that were
with any show of success defending
themselves against the whites' TH E
SOUTH IS DETERMINED TO TAKE THE BIGHTS
OF CITIZENSHIP FROM THE BLACKMAN, that
is the long and short of the whole mat
ter. Within tee last fey, weeks the Jud-
son Female Institute at Marion, Ga.,
was burned to the gaound, and now
comes the tidings that Lincoln Normal
Institute has shared the the same fate.
A religious Southern papea Eaid editor
ially "The North and the Negro shall
never again rule the South, ballot or no
balot, count or no count." The fervid
Crrady but a few days ago said, "Every
white youth must vow that the white
man shall rule the South." These ex
pressions are made in deadly earnest,
and are backed up by murders, outrages,
crimes and frauds that are unparalleled
in the history of man's inhumanity to
man. For any Negro to stand still and
let these Hellish thiDgs go on, without
having done his part to protect his suf
fering brother in the South, is rank
cowardice. W E ABE NOT HELPLESS THERE
IS A WAY OFSAIVATION. The Negro can
be rescued from the folds of the Hell
born anaconda that with Develish ma
lice full, seeks to destroy him. THERE
IS A 1\AY, AND A LAWPUL WAY. Let the
Negroes of free and glorious Minnesota
be the ones to take the first step. The
Times are ripe for action, let a feasable
plan once be presented and all the Ne
groes and their filends will rally to it.
Every Colored citizen of St. Paul, irre
spective of party, denomination, or oc
cupation is now invited to consider this
matter. Sunday mgbt Dec. 30th, a great
mass meeting of Colored citizens will be
held at St. James Church, corner of Ful
ler and Jay street, Rev. J. M. Hender
son, will present the issue as it is. The
pastors and congregations of the various
churches will be invited to be present,
and the pastors will be invited to preach
a series of sermons on this subject.
This is a great race question, let us unite
in its consideration, laying aside what
ever difference that may divide as on
smaller issues. ^3on't forget the date,
Dec. 30th, Sabbath night 7-30 m.
let every lover of his race be present
at St. James Church. Each and every
Colored citizen is cordially invited.
This meeting is only attended to place
the issue before every body, aud will be
followed up by ceaseless, tireless efforts,
until all the influence and strength of
the Negro and his friends in the land
have been concentrated. Go and hear'
Our Companys' "Stag" Party.
Of all the "stags,' ever given among
gentlemen of color in the Saintly city
that given by the members of Chemical
No. 1 might be taken as the criterion.
The green room of their commodious
quarters in which the banquet was held,
and the artistic setting of many colored
Roman candles combined to make a
scene f rare splendor that will not soon
b forgotten. There were present
MessrB J. I. Murray, G. W. McCoy. J.
M. Allen, B. F. Dabney, J. Burns, M. G.
Gooman, T. Delaney, C. Gooman and J.
F. Curtis. At 10:30 the escort Messrs R.
B. Randolph, C. Bro\n An
derson, J. M. Beulanior and W. R.
Godett, members of the company an
nounced that supper awaits our guests
so the merry peals of laughter and the
combined symphonies of piano and
guitar and the rich melodies for which
our amateurs are so noted, were sus
pended for the time and guests and
hosts filed into the green ^rooni. The
decorations of the banquet table were
singularly beautiful and costly, each
place having a buttonhole bouquet and
an elegant Xmas card. Upon the center
of this richly adorned festal board stood
a house of tube roses, emblazoned on
the top with red roses, representing a
house on fire and a minature chemical
engine dashing upon the scene. So sur
prised were the gue ts that they stared
in blank amazement All were then
seated at one of the most elaborate
spreads in the city's history. Six layers
were served and each was supplemented
with a course of rare old wine. The
last course was perhaps the feature of
the banquet. I consisted of Rockford
cheese, and crackers assorted nuts, as
sorted calces, fruits and cafe all Francais.
Each guest in fitting terms paid high
compliments to ihe members of the
company, oyer bumpers of sparkling
champagne. At 5 A. M, the last bumper
was drained and the jovial crowd dis
persed. Great credit is due this com
pany for their excellent record and they
have a standing second to move in the
St James Church Notes.*^
The large congregations which attend
morning services shows that the people
of St. Paul are not of the class that
linger iu the old ruts. There was a time
when you could never have a large
gathering of Colored people except at
night it is not so now, our people, or at
at least a large number of them, are com
ing to the front. ~""~J
The classes were largely attended.

harmony which characterize the ork
ing together of the various committees
shows that St. Paul has many refined
and cultured ladies. The only people in
a church who are contentious and quar
relsome are those who are ignorant and
unrefined. Polite and cultured people
never quarrel, and the better class of
our people can always get along in peace
and harmony, but there is a class who
are sensitive and always miffed. There
are few or none of that kind at St. James

"The New South."
For several years after the close of
the late warfor the Union, the Southern
States remained in a condition of pover
ty and exhaustion from which many
thought it was impossible for them to
recover. Atlanta, in 1865 a dilapitated,
half-burned town, is now the Chicago
of the South, a city of magnificent
buildings and the entire center of an
enormous trade. Birmingham bids fair
to surpass Pittsburgh in iron nianufac
turies, and to become an immense
workshop, while the continually advan
cing prices of real-estate are marvelous.
Nashv ille and Memph's are metropoli
tan cities, pushing to the front under
the guidance of alert and energetic men
of business. New Orleans has renewed
her youth and held two magnificent ex
positions. Everywhere progiess is the
watchword. A. tour of this "New
South" will repay the thoughtful and
observing traveler, and the best way to
reach it is by securing tickets over "The
Burlington," which has the best South
ern connections. Inquire of your tick

TA GBEAT MAGAZINE
\Tho Century for 1889.'
has often been
asked, "to what does Th*
Century owe its great circu
lation?" The Christian Vnion
I once answered this by the
statement that "it has been
fairly won, not by adver
tising schemes, but by the excellence which
characterizes it in every department" In
their announcements for the coming year
the publishers state that it has always been
their desire to make The Century the one in
dispensable periodical of its class, so that
Whatever other publication might be desira
ble in the family, The Century could not be
neglected by those whowish to keep abreast
of the tunes in all matters pertaining to
culture. And the unprecedented, circula
tion of the magazine would seem to be the
response of the public to this intention.
With the November number The Century
begins its thirty-seventh
volume. Two great feat
ures of the magazine
wrhicb. are to continue
throughout the new vol
ume are already well
known to the public, the
Lincoln history and the
papers on Siberia and
the Exile System." The
first of these, written by
Messrs. Nicolay and Hay,
President Lincoln's pri
vate secretaries, contains
the inside history of the
dark days of the war, as
seen from the White
THE SIBERIAK PAPEBS, __
by George Kennan, are attracting the at
tention of the civilized world. The Chi
cago Tribune says that "no other magazine
articles printed in the English language just
now touch upon a subject which so vitally
interests all thoughtful people in Europe and
America and Asia." As is already known,
copies of The Century enterinj?Russia have
these articles torn out by the customs officials
on the frontier.
The Century will publish the most Im
portant art feature that has yet found
place in its pages. It is the
result of four years' work
of Mr. Timothy Cole, the
leading magazine engraver
of the world, the galleries
of Euiope, engraving from
the originals the greatest
pictures by the old masters.
A series of papers on Ire
land, its customs, land
scapes, etc, will appear, and there are to
be illustrated articles on Bible scenes,
treating especially the subjects of the Inter
national Sunday-School Lessons. George
W. Cable will write Strange, True Stone3
of Louisiana There will be novelettes
and short stories by leading writers, occa
sional articles on war subjects (supplement
alto the famous "War Papers" by General
Grant and others, which have been appear*
mg in The Century), etc etc.
The Century costs four dollars a year, and
it is published by The Century Co, of New
York, who will send a copy of the full pros.
rectus to any one on request.
t S Nichol as for 1889.
PEOPLE who have the
idea that St. Nicholas Mag
azine is only for little cml
g^dren should look over the
i -'prospectus of that maga
zine for 1889, -and they
will discover that it is for children of
all ages, "from five to eighty-hve,"
as some one recently said of it. Indeed,
while St. Nicholas is designed for girls and
boys, it might almost he called a "family
magazine," for the grown-up members of a
household will find much to interest them
in every number. ^J
The editor, Mrs. Mary Mapes Dodge,
calls the next volume art "all-round-the
world year," because it is to contain so
many illustrated papers about the world in
generalnot dry geographical papers, but
stories and sketches and tales of travel and
adventure by land and seaand all illus
trated by the be6t artists. The features
will include a serial story, "How We Made
