W.Green-st., Louisville. W.H.TwiGGs,Orrington-ave,Ev3nstoD,Ill While every bedy seems tc be going wild und growing rich, through real estate, in this neck of the woods it seems a little singular that colored men generally, do not "catch on." They seem to be splendid imitatois of the fashionable foibles, vices and follies of their frirer-hued and straighter-baired brothers, and in everything- but financial undertakings "you can't lose em." But when it comes to business enterpiises, wherein confidence in one anthe other, and co-operation, are essential element, of success, they seem to be all at eea. One of the greatest draw backs is the lack of confidence in each other, and just so long as this prevails,there will be little general progress. There is not one of the readers of the APPEAL, in this city, that has not heard of t'ne onderful deals that have been mad e,rightbere Within the past three year there are numerous instances where its have been bought, that doubled, trebl ed and quadrupled in value, in that length of time. We heard of a case where one man "wished another to go in with him and 1 buy some property he knew of for sale, he would not go in the deal, but loaned 1 $200 with the promise of receiving $600 1 in return. Shortly altervvard, the party I tow horn the money was loaned,stepped I up to the party from whom he had borrowed itand who bv the way was a colored manand planked down the promised 600 in hard cash. "Now," said he, "how much do vou suppose I made? You know I paid $2,200 for the ground, well, I sold it yesterday for $15,000 spot cash. I shall be a watchman no longei I'm going into business." This is only one of the recent occurrences tha$ dazzle unbelievers*. A gentleman was telling,a few nights since, 'of thirteen lots on Summit avenue that, three years ago, he endeavored to get "some other colored gentleman to join with him in buying at 100 per lot, but they lacked confidence in each other, and would not come to any final agreement to-day those lots canaiot be bought for 13,000. We ought to form syndicates among ourselves and put in our small sums, which are of littte service by themselvt s, but could be made to *P8uir magnificent proportions if taken together buv some of the available properties in this vicinity, and ,r,et some of the enormous profits that others are reaping daily around us. Co-operation should be our watchword. We are too weak and feeblefinanciallyto 'do much single handed, but by co-operation, we may achieve some wonderful results. We learn there is a movement m foot among some of us looking toard this end which we hope will are at a successful termination. There large number of men among us whocommand a few hundreds each and will only co-operate these hun- \i ill grow into thousands. Don't 7 long thinking about it co*oper- the points in the speech made 'Sherman.recently.furnishesa match thought on our part. Mr. ift: "The attempt to enforce the rights of 'tie colored al authority I Y &** no maend bynnation- fail fa it is concetded that under the limitations of the constitution the rights of tne citizens of a state can only be enforced through state or national tribunals, and where public opinion is intolerant and jurors will not do their duty, a citizens, black or white, may be without remedy for the grossest wrong, except the right to MIGRATE to where his rights will be respected." It is known to be a fact that the damnable theory advanced by Judge Taney, years ago, in his Dred Scott decisiona Negro has no rights which a white man is bound to respectis in full practice in (he South to day. True there are some sort of half way concessions made to eolored men for policy sake, but the spirit of the infamous dicision still prevails. Then, according to the statement made by Senator Sherman, nothing is left for the colored man to do but to migrate. Let those wno have means to purchase lands be the first to leave, and this will give,others no*t so fortunate, an opportunity, perhaps, to get more work or better pay. The broad domain of the Northwest is open to all who wish to come and till .her soil, and here the rights of the citizens of all colors and nationalities are fully protected by state laws. We do not advocate a general exodus but a gentle migration which will not paralyze the industries at home nor over burden the advantages of the locality which may be selected. We would not advise a location in the cities which are already over crowded with skilled laborers, but to go to the woods and vast prairies which are stretched out on every side inviting all who will to come and take possession of them. Good land,accessible to the markets.can be obtained at low rates and with care and perseverance bountiful returns are the sure results. Here all are equal in the enjoyment of the highest political and civil liberties and every man can worship God under his own vine and fig tree according to dictates of his conscience, with none to molest him or to make him afraid. The only places in the south where the colored men and the white men are on a perfect equality are twothe penitentiary and the cemetery.State Capital. Our contemporary is oft, away off, there are cemeteries in the south in which they will not bury colored persons and, if our brother imagines black and white are on an equality in the penitentiaries, just let him go and see for himself, how badly he is mistaken. The penitentiaries may be hell for white men but they are heller for colored ones. Incompliance with a request of the American Woman Suffrage Association we have agreed to publish a "Wojian's Column" or at least to publish something in womans favor whenever convenient to do so. This week we present an article by Mary A. Livermore upon "Industrial Training for Girls." There are thirti -seven factories in the United States for the manufacture of oleomargarine, and still some folks thinks they eat butter. The great Ashland real estate boom seems to be turning into a boomerang. March spoiled the old adage by going out lamb like. EDWARD E. COOPER DISCHARGED. Mr. Edward E. Cooper, the editor of the World, the colored people's paper here, is inclined to the belief that the mills of justice grind slowly. Nearly three years ago, while running as a postal clerk from here to Louisville, he was arrested for tampering with the mails. It took him two years to get a trial, although he was anxious for it as speedily as possible, and when it did come off he was acquitted. Then the evidence against him was sent on to the department of justice and came back here in the shape of an affidavit for his re-arrest on substantially the same charge. He asked for an immediate trial, but a postponement was taken for two weeks, with the understanding that the case was to come up before Commissioner Jordan to-day. Mr. Cooper and his attorney, Mr. Holbtein, were on hand ready for trial this morning, but the government representatives did not have their witnesses and were not ready, and didn't know when they would be. The commissioner accordingly dismissed the case and discharged the defendant. The above is from the Indianapolis News, of March 29th. We heartily congratulate Mr. Cooper upon the successful termination of his presecutions on account of color. We hope he will now institute suit against the United States for damages for false imprisonment. There should be some restitution made, for the suits against Mr. Cooper were malicious and prompted solely on acsupplied count of his color.

If I were able, I would change the public sentiment so radically that no girl should be considered well educated, no matter what her accomplishments, until she had learned a trade, a business or a profession. There would then be fewer fathers and brothers toiling like galley-slaves to support healthy and vigorous human beings in stagnating idlenebsidle for no earthly reason save that God has made them women. Lack of technical and industrial training not only makes dependent and inefficient women of our daughters, it puts them in fearful peril morally. Indolence is always demoralizing. It ruins health, destroys beautv, and enfeebles the will. "Out of 2,000 fallen women in the city of New York, 1,880 had been brought up to do nothing 525 pleaded destitution as the cause of their sad life." In view of these facts, which might be multiplied indefinitely, ought we not to rid ourselves of the inherited social idea that it is a shameful thing for young women to be taught to support themselves by honorable industry In an early stage of the late war, before the Government had organized its various departments, I saw a body of soldiers march from the St. Louis camp of rendezvous, and embark on boats to go down the Mississippi. Among them were companies without uniforms and without equipments. The men wore the citizens dress in which they had enlisted. It was explained that they had been ordered to the front immediately after enlistment, in advance of the arrival of their uniforms and guns, to maintain the morale of the army, which was unfavoraoly affected by the mustering out of large numbers who had enlisted on short terms of service. Uniforms, guns, and the all-important drill would be given these raw recruits, we were told, when they reached their destination. Two or three weeks later, I met some of these very unequipped men, still without uniforms, on board a hospital boat, steaming slowly up the river enroute for the Buperb general hospitals of St. Louis. Some of the poor-fellows were so rent with shot and shell that their own mothers would not have recognized them. I heard tneir pitiful atory from many lips, but it was always the"same story. .Hardly had these green boys in the "clothing of civilians reached their regiments, when they were surprised by the enemy and without guns or an hour's drill, they were plunged into a sharp, disastrous engagement. Shot at, shot down, they could make no defence for they had not been with the munitions of war, nor I taught how to use them.. ST. PAUL & MINNEAPOLIS, MINN.f APRIL 2, 1887. It is as wasteful, as unwise, as inbuman, to send our delicately-nurtured and tenderly-reared young daughters ut fron the home to fight the battle of life with out a preparation for it, without ai equipment in the form ofan^ industria1 and business education, as itwas to send these hapless young fellows to fight tlu enemy without drill, and without guns The results are more disastrous, and reach farther. Our daughters are not shot down, like the untrained militar\ recruit they live, but with noindividual grasp on life. They becomfe anxious concerning th future, with nil power to provide for it. At the mercy|)f circumstances which tbey know nab how to control victims of petty beliefs, old abuses, and respectable tynxhues, they drop into mental ill-heal$h, amy^djtfy disease comes with it. J|iP8StPi&Si Or they marry, and make faithful, loving, lovelv wives to admiring husbands But the husband dies. He was living on a salary, which ceases with his life. His young widow has one or more children. What is she to do Or the husband may drop into permanent invalidism, or into bankruptcy, or into dissolute habits. If the young wife hatnot been in part prepared for such emergencies by previous training, her lot is hard indeed. "Oh, you can't prepare girls to meet such emergencies!" said an eminent clergyman, in '"hose parlor this topicwas being earnestly discussed. "You must prepare them to be good wives and mothers, and risk the rest. There you will have to leave them, and trust in God." Our trust must be in God, to be sure. No one disputes that. And yet I have the deepest respect for the advice that Oliver Cromwell gave his soldiers, "Trust in God, and keep vour powder dry!" MABY A. LIVEEMORE. St. Louis, Mo. The Kant class is booming. Mr. Samuel Mordecai has about recovered. Mr. Wesley Campbell who has been away for a month, will return next Thursday. The W. C. T. U. at Carondelet gave an exhibition Tuesday eveningat Lafayette Hall. Much interest is taken in this temperance organization. Mr. Danl Seals, of Cleveland, Ohio, was in the city last week. His old friends and numerous acquaintances extended a cordial greeting to him. The many friends of Prof. C. F. Adams, now doing such successful work in Washington, were pained to hear of his reported illness. They earnestly trust he will soon be himself again. Mrs. D. E. Gordon has issued invitations to a card party to be given next Friday night, in honor of her husband's birthday. Mr. Gordon is one of the leading principals in the schools. He was married last September to Miss Otillia Wright. Mr. Lery Christy, editor ofthe Indianapolis World, has been in the city for several days. He is on a business trip. Mr. Christy was one of the interested audience at the Henry Ward Beecher memorial service by the Review Club. He also participated in the discussion.

Gordon, Prof. Agee, Mrs. S. D. Brown and otheis eulogized the celebrated deceased. Whist is and has been all the rage here and many of our best society people are experts in the game. For several weeks Messrs. C, H. Brown and D. E. Gordon have been contesting the honors with Messrs. H. D. King and A. D. Langston. Last Saturday these gentlemen met at the residence of Mr. King on south Jefferson avenue, at two o'clock, they played till half past sevn, stopping an hour for an elegant dinner prepared by Mrs. King. At the quitting, Messrs. King and Langston were found to be well in the lead. Messrs. Brown and Gordon departed for their homes with heavy hearts.

He has sympathy of his many friends at the Fort. THE WILSON-DIAMOND glove contest last Monday night attracted about two thousand people to the Exposition Rink. The fight was to be fifteen rounds, but was given to Wilson at the close of the seventh round on a foul. Wilson had the best of each round and would in all probability have done his man but the police interfered and stopped the mill. Wilson left Wednesday on a sparring tour with* Chandler's combination, and I will be gone for three or four months.

Those present were: Mesdames Celia Falls, George Barnett Misses Luella Underwood, Mortie Gray, Roberta Coleman,andMary Godett.of St. Paul Messrs. W. A. Hazel, E. Perkins, W. A. Gilispie, R. J. .^ewis, R. Gray, and Geo. Harrison, Chas. James and J. Q. Adams, of St. Paul. The supper table presented a de ightful combination of beauty, elegance and good cheer. The hostess is a very charming lady and the affair was most recherche in every particular. The Mozart Club was organized last October, by request of Rev. L. H. Reynolds, pastor in charge of the Second A. M. E. church of this city, for the purpose of giving concerts and other entertainments, for the benefit of the building fund of the church. The members at first were very zelous in their work and gave a concert about the middle of December by which they cleared $30. Soon alter however, intoxicated by success they began to grumble of doing so much for the church,although nearly all were members. Dissatisfaction caused discussion and some of the members withdrew. Those that remained in the club renounced their government and adopted another, which provided that half the proceeds of all concerts or entertainments given by them, should go to their treasury, and, that the same should be "equally divided among the members for their services. The club gave a concert on the 17th inst., but the talent which brought them success at other concerts was chiefly conspicuous for its absence, and, to add to the discredit of the distinguished society a dance concluded the programme. Now we do not wish to denounce the young members but admonish them of the errors of their ways. Locals. MATTIE WINBORN, of Detroit, Mich., fsin the city. MB. A.

AMONG the customs in vogue in the Saintly City, there is none more pleasant than that of giving birthday parties and while it is not confined to those who are still in their "teens," they seem to follow it with more zest than their older brothers and sisters.
