J. W. Williams, regarding Sunday ob
servance. The text chosen was the

A PLEA FOR THE COLORED MAN.
Mads by Rsv. Dr. Cornelius A'bary
Itov. Dr. Cornelius Asbury, presiding
elder of the Pittsburg district of the
African Methodist EpiscopH con
ference, lectured in the Howard Plane
African Metuodist Kpueopal church
last evening, on tho subject, "An Old
Hone of Contention."
A snapping anil snarling of dogs over
an old bone, he said, might bo seen and
heard almost any day. But ns a mat
tor of fact the bono ovar which tho
wrangling takes plac ) may be the prop
erly of neither dog.
So there is a contest going on in this
land over an old bone in the form of u
man. He does not know himself.
Some times the term Afro-Americin is
Hppliol to hitu, Which would leem to
imply that ho is part African and part
American, Sometimes he is culled 11
negro and sometimes a colored man.
iNone of these names exactly tit bim.
lie ia the black man of America, nnd
the mother is greatly troubled about
him, but be is here lb stay.
Dr. Asbury spoke of the progress of
his race since the war, dwelt upon the
outrages perpetrated upon them iu tho
South, at times renohing heights of
soul stirring eloquence and again mov
ing his auiience to outbursts of
laughter by his quaint humor. Tbe
black man, he said, should be free
from Maine to Georgia. Let him ride
on the cars when he choses, if ho bus
money to pay his faro, but if he has
none, put him off as yon would any
other dend head. He wants to
sit under his own fig tree unmolested
and without fear.

Manager Mishlor writes Tim Tribune
bis opinion of the present production. of
tho comedy, ''The Rivals,'' by Mre.
John Drew and company, to bo given
here this evening. He saya: "It was
a regretful pleasure to look upon hor
last eveniug for the last time. We had
not expected to see her i gain as Mrs.
Mulaprop, a character in whioh she has
lost none of tho charming freshness
and spoutaiuety of humor. Mrs. Mul
aprop Is old, vain and conceited, char-
acteristics that are not attractive,
therefore the actress plays the part In
a manner that wins the admiration of
tho audience. Acted otherwise it would
he wosrisome. ilir slaughter ot the
language, with an apparent uncon
sciousness is thoroughly enjoyable.
Mrs. Drow in all she does is always a
"Sydney Drew as Bob Acres was
clevor, easy,, refined in his humor and
in the last act in the d n il scene gave
evidence of exceptional dramatic abil
ity, Charles B, Haiiford, who appeared
as Julius CSBiaf last season, gave
nn nrtistio impersonation of Captain
Absolute. Verner Clarges was an ef
fective, stentorian Sir Anthony Abso

of the firit act. Charles E. Verner ns
Sir Lucius O'Trigger was admirable
Mrs. Sydney Drew was a handsome,

COLLINS WINS THE CONTEST.
Decision of the Court Gives Him a
Majority of One Over
Patrick F. Hughes.
Jndge Archbald yesterday afternoon
handed down a lengthy opinion In the
cr-n tested election enso of John J. Col
lins against Patrick P. Hughes for
the office of school diroctor in the
Third nnd Fourth ward of tho city of
The df ciiiou gives a complete review
of tin history of tho east, in which a
vast amount ot testimony was taken,
although in the opinion of tho court
the case at present hinged upon the
qnestion of tho legality of sixteen bal
lots, all of which hor" the group marit
lags, but ten of which were sptolally
marked opposite the name of Hnghes,
and six opposite the name of Collins.
All the other matters, tho opinion
states, wore supposed to hava lean pre
viously disposed of, but conns?l for the
respondent, however, had sought to
open the osso in other particulars nnd
have a ro-exumitiation of several m it
tern in regard to which they clnim
mistakes wore made, all but one of
which rolato to what occurred the time
of tho recount of the vote, and call in
question tho result of the proceedings.
Tho time nnd plnco to have raised
these objections, tho decision Inti
mates, was when tbe recount was
being made, but not wishing to rest
under the imputation of not being
Willing to correct mistakes, the points
raised nre considered nud disposed of
in regular order, aftor v;hich Judge
Archbald comes to the main question
of tho sixteen votes heretofore men
tioned. His argument ou this poiut is
exhaustive, but as tho principd in
volved has boon variously decided In
different lower court?, the conclusion
reached h brought about by a process
of legal deduction involving a good
doal of carjful thought.
The position taken by Judge Arch
bald i.s that tho intention of the voter
should prevail, and that while tho six
teen ballots are doubly aud eonfliot
ingly marked, yet that tho special de
signation of the candidates must be
t'ikon ns evidence of the voters inten
tion. It is therefore tho opinion of the
court that of the sixteen doubly marked
ballots, ten belong to John J. Collius
an ! si x to Peter F. Hughes. This gives
Collins votes and Hughes 3)0, after
all tho illegal votes are deducted.
The elective officers In their conut
gave Patrick F, Hughes a majority of
one. Judge Gnnster dissented from
that part ot the decision which holds
that tho sixteen votes having a group
and epeoial marking can bo counted.
Tho action of the court finally ends
the contest. An appeal will not be
tnken by Mr. Hughes from the decision
of the courl. The costs of the proceed
in g are placed on the School District
of Carbondale City.
