yot we have been able to find no fault

W« here repeat what we have often
told our people, tbe deaiiny of the
Negro race ia in the bands of our own
preachers and teachers. Tbe preacher
• b«« a text uutaide the Bible, or he
aboold make the Bible cover every*
thing that ia good. He ia tbe moral
as well aa the spiritual guide of a
eommunity. aod abonld instruct man
of his duty to bis fcllow-mcn when
neither 1* under religious cxcitcmeol.
An ignorant man should be tsnght to
do a thing because it ia good and
right, and to refnac to do a thing be-
eanse it ia wrong—nnt because bc'll
be punished if detected, hut he should
be taught to detest wrong or sin of
every kind. The preacher ia that a
guide and help to the oM folk*,
while the teaeSar does much toward
helping the paront giro proper shape
to the minds of the young.
Wo were onco oritieiaed in the pul
pit for aaying in thia paper that
fMople have “too mneb presebisg aod
■ woi enough lecturing. Wo believe
eight sermon* a month, properly ap-
pliod, are enough to save any poor
lunar’s aoul. We hold that tbe
preacher has other duties than arona-

Since the feeling has now well-nigh
■lied out, we do not derm it amiss to
refer lo some of the misnom rs ap
plied to the church. Some call it tbe
“dry” church because the memh'.'ra
are all supposed to be prohibitionists;
others call it the “prohibition” church,
the •■temperance church,” 4c.. for
the same reason. Wc do not know
:jusl how-many of tbe niouibcrs are
worthy of tbe name, but think all of
them and all other church tuemuers
ought to be. .‘idroe others call it the
“parlnr” church, “Winnona circic,”
&c., thinking tauny of the meubera
belong to this worthy literary on'l
Bocial circle. Wo are sorry more of
them do not belong to the Winnona,
hut only two of tbo male members of
this church and about a half doxen
females belong to the Winnona.
It may not be amiss here to exhort
the membeni of ibis new church
use tbe greatest care aod caution to
cultivate a Cbrialian and brotherly
feeling between ibemiclvea and all
Chriatians. The mcmbrr.d nf this
ehurch are no better than other
Q^Utians, aud one makes a sad t
lake when he thinks ao. A name
plied to them in deriaou should be ac
cepted in a ebristianlike way. and the
one of them who says tn hia enemy,
we are ahnvo (hv ocrrag.*,” “w*
are all old eUitens,” we have uo
drunkards,” and aneh things u will
ereato bard feelings, be ia a worse
enemy to tbe now eimroh than
(be outside. If there b average iu-
tidligcDO'^D the new church, it wUI
show itself in tbe diserelion, the
coinmuDseDse and Chrbtliko aclioua
and livts of its nientbers. Frisnds nf

The high social standing of the
mnrdcrer and bis victim, coupled with
the mystery and romance nf tragedy,
made of it onn of the celebrated ctac*
Ilf modern jurbprudence.
TI1C Supreme Conr* of Appeals stood
4 to 1 in favor of susuining the judg
ment of the lower court. Judge
Fauiillcroy delivered the opinion, read
ing from a bundle of legal cap paper
cniiiprising about one hundred pages,
•ludgc Hinton diasented, being in favor
of a new trial. Tbo fact that Glnvc
riua would not he produced in court
kept away many who would otherwise
have been preaeut.
At timet Judge Fanntleroy wu very
iuiprcssive, and u he laid bare the
facts u adduced on tbe memorial trial,
it seemed u if the voice of the public
proMcutor wu being beard again. The
opinion of the court u expresaed had
been arrived at after a very patient
and searching review of all the facta,
and was eupported by copious quota
tions and references to the moat learnod
and coroptitent authorities.
CluvoriuB knew what the decision

Judge Fauntlerof bad finished reading
the opinion. About 12:40 o'elook
Mr. McGeorge, a friend of the priaon-
cr, left (he court room and went to
(be jail. Mr. McOeorge remained with
Cluverins until Judge Crump and Mr.
Beverly Crump, of coantel for the pri
soner, arrived at the jail. Cluveriua
was in ao upstairs room, tbe nroe in
which the Coroner's investigation wu

Williarai looked at him to see it he
could indentify him u the roan who,
in company with a lady, got off the
car at Reservoir straot aud turned
down towards the Reurvnlr on tbe
night of the tragedy. When the
action nf the eourt was uirnlv known
