At the appointed time a large congrega t on assembled which had to move to Friendship Hall. Here the meeting was called to order by Mr. Lymus Wallace, who explained that he had n t lost his draymen, did not call the meeting for any such purpose and that tSe use of the pastors* Dsmes was unauthorized: but that the meeting had been called to consider the aa visxblility of emigati ng and the b *st manner of doing such. He was then e ecled chairman and Mr. Abe Henderson, secretary. The chairman then appointed a committee on resolutions com^posed of the following: Rev. J. C. \\ aters, A- Ste enson, J. Thos. Turner, Cash Mosbv, H. K. Phillips, J. E, Gnen-field.' While the committee was out the house wa» entertained by Rev. W. A. Hrinkley, xh i declared in htrongest terms his intentions of going “clean out the sound of the wicked.*’ He was heartily oheered. Following Rev. Brinkley, Rev. H. A. I mes begL^t-d them to give the matter serious considerat'on, to count the cost and inve tigate carefully tha pros|>evts. While he favored any movement that x'ould better the condition yet bed.d not believe 7000ÍK):) negroes would find ready imploy-ment in Oklahoroo and the consequent results would be anything but flattering. Many of the ass mbly, having had their iniods drifted off in beautiful fancy, were not prepareil to consider thing but success and when called anyi upon to give the matter serious thought they expre-»< d their disapproval with cries of “sit dswn” “sit down.” The committee on res dut'o is x-as then ready to re|>ort, but the chair* man, Rev. J. C. Waters, x’ould not take the stand until the h »use agreed to again listen to Rev. lines who he claimed had labored so earnestly with them in the recent trouble and -distresf. Mr. Imes concluded his remarks by expia ning that he x-as not the man to oppose anything that would better the condition of the race but x-arned tatm 1 *8t they should rush headlong into trouble. The chairman then called for the resolutions which are as follows: Wi*lespread 'disc'Ontent prevails among the colored citizens of Memphis and vicini y, growing out of the brutal lynching of three untried ctl »red men on the morning of Alarch if; and, WAere It is our deliberate opinion that ntth ng will be prao icall/ do ne to bring to merited punishment the perpertrators of this bloody out* rage, x'hich has brj*>ght shame and disgrace u[>on the fair fame of the ciiy and sent a thrill of horror through the hearts and into the homes of all law abiding peojde throughout the nation; and. Hundreds of colored citizens are preparing to remove from this City and State; therefore be it Jies»4i'tdy Tbat in view of the manifest increa-sing hostility toward the colored people and especially the young men of the race in this and other localities; we commend the efforts of all who are about to leave and urge thousands of others to properly and dispassionately adjust their affair and «^ueitly follow their example an i seek among strangers th3 protection of just laws impartially en^ forced, x’hich are «ienied thtm here. ■ /?eS'i/i?ef/,That whilediscontenenc-ing any racial strife, and pledging to lio all in our poxer to prevent the same, we earnestly protest against the j»reo.s magnifying every street corner brax’l into a race riot, thexeby inciting to violence the irresponsible J------ orld Res Aoed^ Tbat while expree^ng no opinion as to the guilt or innocence of the unfortunate young men, Mc^ Dowell, Moss and Steí?art, who were so savagely murdered, deploring as we do their tragic death, it is but simple justicato say that the assert ion that they belonged to the tough element of the colorí colored community is shamefully false. Among those with whijm they associated, by whom they were employed, and to whom they were best known, they x’ere regarded as highly respectable and in every way worthy of confidence reposed in them by their ^riends. Resolved^ That we commend the good order and manly deportment of the co ored |>eople in the late exoit* ing seer cee, and trust that similar c nduct will mark their acti ns in the future as in the past Resoltftdy That we implore the Bjrmpathy of all friends of justice, law, and right throughout the cpun try in oor defenseless oonriiion.

VIRGINIA JUBILEE SINGERS. the double A flat, three octaves be** low t e high St note of an ordinary tenor, and fully five b-low the high est note of the highest set soprano voice ever known. Mr McAdoo is i*'ince the music loving people of Hobart had the pleasure of bearing the Fisk Jubilee Singers many changes have been made in the original company, and many parts of the world visited. We are now informed that five have married and settled do «n. Mr. Orpheus M. McAdoo, a leading member of the Fisk Jubilee Singers, decided to keep the company in existence if possible, and to greatly improve upon it. About two yearn and a half ago Mr. McAdoo returned to Virginia, and began to organize a company to be known as the Virginia Jubilee Singers.” In his effort the grandest succe s xa’ithe re Suit. He was fortunate in securing some of the best color d talent in America. The company opened tl>eir season in Virginia, receiving the most flattering reception ever extended to any company by * the D.d Dominion State.” After making a short visit in America they decided to go direct to Bonnie Scotland, aiid selected Glasgow to give their first concert, feeling sure of warm friends and a gooii leception. In this they were not disappointed, for Press tnd puolid declared the Virginia Jubilee Singers to be the be»st company that had ever visited Glasgow. This was most pleasing to the young manager, for the Fisk^s had been to Glasg.jw several times. After doing awh.le in Scotland, they receive! an invitation to sing at the Great May Meeting in Exeter Hall, London. They sung for them on tx'o occa» sions, once in connection with the Young Men’s Christian Association (Mr. George Williams in the chair), at X’hich thero were 8OOO People present. Again in connection with the Railway Mission Work of Great Bri aiii, to an audience of 5000. On the latter cccasion, the company gave one of their lovely hymns, entitled. “The Gospel train is cominsr.” The effort was so great, that for five the applause was kept up, and the song repeated three times. A few concerts in and around London finished their stay in England. As the summer was approaching Mr. McAdoj was most desirous of visiting the continent, about which Hobart is getting 80 much informat;on at present from Mr. Stanley. On May 29, 1890, the Singers left London for Cape Town, South Africa, seeking Lme a d fortune. They arrived after a lovely voyage on June 20th. Ihe an«ouncement of their arrival was circulated throughout civilized Africa. Old frienos of the Jubilee Singers, who had heard them years ago at Home and in America, were only too delighted to welcome them. There were none more kind or more deeply interested in their succ ss than His Excellency, Sir Henry Loch, Lady Loch; and Mr. Seymour Font (Ute Governor’s Private Sec^ retary). On the opening night in Cape Town, though very much tired from constant engagements. Lady Loch told Mr. McAdoo that she would gladly be present at his first concert. There were eleven in His Excellency’s party. They were so well pleased that they went on three occasions. The most fashionable audience ever assembled in Cape Tox’n at one time welcomed the Virginia Jubilee Singers at their fiist concert, and during their sjason of tbree weeks they had crowded houses. The Company i-pent 18 months in Africa, singing in every town in Cape Cjlony, Natal, the Orange Free State and the Transvaal (South African Repuplic). They have had some of the most novel and interesting experiences, and Mr. McAdoo promises us some account of his travels and experiences later on, which we are sure x’ill i» wi.'ist our readers exceedingly. T J^jt-bmpany will arrive on the Kiaki    and there are, judging from the    naid Press criticisms, some rera: u^^'le voices among them. The GlasoM^i^Christian Leader^ says of Mr. C    us Myron McAdoo : “Almost-eat bases have been dark coi'‘*    loned; and the leading base in    Jubilee    Singers, at prese^^    ur midst, has phenom- enal v«^tk    2tually going down to ibe manager of the company, and is a gentleman of high mnsical culture.” M'ss Mattie E. Allen, (Mrs. O. M. McAdoo) has, it is claimed, a real ten r voice, full, rich and resonant. Tenor voices of the best quality are rare in gentlemen, but in a lady, it is a decided novelty, and will most certainly attract attention. Mirs Belle F. Gibbons is with the company Miss Gibbons was also one of the Fi k’s. She is a charming soloist, a d has many frien s in Hobert already. Then there is Madame J.'Stewart Ball and Mss Kate Slade, who are aUo soloists of great merit, while an elocutionist in the compauv is a pleasing change, and McAddoo claims that in Miss Julie Wormlie he has the best artist in America ” The first part of the program is devoted to “Jubilee cboruses,” while the second part consists of the most refined secular select! >ns, includ ng new glees, soloe, quartettes, duett*^, etc., thus lending a greater varie y to their program. They pro^se to open on Tuesday evening, Feb. 2.3, in the Temperance Hall, for a short season onlf. On GREAT FORCE IN A NUTSHELL their arrival they will be comfort-«bly lo located at the Hobart CofleA Palace. We predict a splendid season for them, for the wild, plaintive, soul* stirring melodies are thair own, and seem to reach the scu s of their audience to an inexpressible degree The Catholic always keeps shy of cablegrams and newspaper reports on important church news ontil the same ate absolutely veiifi jd. Particularly so, in the naming of new cardinals among our American prelates. We have always felt the circulated news of this kind, must be painful to the disDnguighedecclesias-fc named and rightly so. But re^ ports oodie so thick and fast and ap-parentiy so well authenticated, that we feel we are almost safe in predicting this country is soon to be honored by an addit'O lal red hat. And if rumor is ver*fied Ister by the act-utal announcement no more fitting head will wear it, and no greater* worthier and illustrious prelate be honored by this hightest dignity in the Church, from the bands of Leo the XIII than his Grace, John, Ireland, Archbishop of St. Paul, Minnesota. Whether or not, the Archbishop r.ceives this honor the fact remains, luminously, that the attacks madi upon him have fallen harmlessly at Rome, and recoiled against his calumnistors. Here at home where we know him and love him, for bis eminent qualifications, his superb mental equipment, his uncompromising attitude on the great cause of temperance, his bro»> gretsive ideas, and above all for his works, which spe-kkg louder than words, he n^eas no vindication. The name of John Ireland stands to day for all that is great and true and progieisive in the American Catholic Church.    . Archbishop Ireland; loves his Church. For if he would lay down his life. He loves, too, the ccuitry of his adoption. An American to the innermost fibre he sees here, in this land w hich Columbus gave to us four hundred years ago, God's last best gifts to humanity struggling from the thraldom of the effete monarchies of the Old World, where the state ever hampered the Church in her mission, the great theatre for for her full develjpment. Society is today in a transition state. It is the day of the people. The Providence of God, visibly directing His Church in these troublous days, has given us, in the person of our Holy Father Leo XIII, the greatest Pope of modern times, the authority which is today felt and recognized by the whole world as the only guide to safe outlets from the thi’eatening evils of socialism, an^ arcby and infidelity. In our country, where the sects are rapidly disintergratin^, where the anxious thought of millions of our re* fleeting countrymen is seeking the trutli, the Church’s claims are being rapidly recognized. God has bh^ssed us with great and holy men at the head of our ecclesiastical affairs, men abreast of the times, who sacrifice not one iotx of their Catholicity but adapt the Church to the wants and needs of the people. Among these leadeas we point with just pride to h’s Grace, Most Reverend Jonn Ireland.—Ex. Astonishing Rssults said to bo Obtained from a Tiny Electric Ctenerator.' A procession of rowboats moving rapidly about Lake Meirit', Oakland, a few weeks ago, was observed with intense int rest by a few people who had watcned with eagerness the moveman*s of one of the men in the leading boat. This boat was fitted with paddles, the rapid rotation of which urged the boat rapid 7 through the ripples and brew swiftly the seven other Lo its tow. The boating excursion was no plei s ire party, but a private exhibition of a motor which if able to accomplish one^-tenth of what is of it, IB the most poweifU application of electrical energy devi ed. Charles Sellander is the man who directed the movements of the leader boat, and he is the discojrerer of the chemical combination that produc >s, marvellous results. The prooess, the materials, the manner of combinatiqn are secrets closely held, for no patent has been issued. To a very few people has any information of the discovery or invention been communic ated, and t \e*e people must be losing uatinz sleep contemplating the marvels which the young inventor claims for his motive power. Sellander is a mode it mechanic, quiet and industrious, who is employed by the South-•rn Pacific Company as an extra engineer of locomotive engines. He lives on Fourth Avenue, East Oakland, and bears an excellent reputation among all who know him. The outward appearance of his ap» paratas is simple. His chemical iO apound is encased in air-tight copper vacuum bulbs, for it explode on exposure to the atmosphere. At tached to the copper receptacle sre hi' wires through which the electricity is fed as on supply wires of other electr'cal systems. The disco /ery of the generating materials and their irapris nm-nts. One of these acii-um bulbi is no larger than a walnut. Yet with this lufinitesimally small generator, one is said to have sent the light rowboats dancing over the sur** face of Lake Merritt as though they were shells moved by a Cambridge crew. The inventor recently told a friend that for three weeks he¡had suppli d constant power from his tiny gen» e a‘or to move a toy boat iu a pond in his backyard, and the battery showed no signs of weakening. To the same friend he said he regards his invention or discovery as the nearest approach to perpetual motion yet attained. If the young man is a pretender he has succeeded at the beginning in gulling some very hard»headed business men, who are not inc|ined to swallow the idle tales of a fabri> cator of romance. PHILADELPHIA. Philadelphia:—By the bits’ of green ribbon which was prominently displayed, and shamrocks worn on the lapel of the men coats, shows that the Patron Saint of Ireland was not forgotten in this city on Thurs^ «lay last, an«l, although there was no street parade, still the day was fit* tingly observed.
