The Great Popular Preachers Contest
Goes Merrily on
This Week Rev. F. Lomack ol Duluth
Heads, the ProcessionAre ou
Working Hard for Your
Pastoi? Who'll Win?
The friends of the ministers have be
gun to work in earnest. There is rea
son to believe that some will hold back
votes. There is no reason for and
nothing can be gained by this course.
This contest is a perfectly fair one and
will be to the end.
Request is made that those sending in
any number of votes will please write
plainly upon the outside of the envelope
the numbei of votes sent. They will
also be caieful to cutout the ballot, no
mote and no less, trimming it neatly to
the line. They will likewise avoid roll
ing them. Observance of these three
simple injunctions will greatly abridge
the labors at this office.
The interest in the result in some quar
ters is extraordinary. Many of the
friends of the preachers are greatly con
cerned as though it meant a suit of
clothes or a cane or a portrait for them
personally. They employ all their elo
quence to persuade friends that their
own particular candidate is the best and
most deserving of popular support.
The name of the candidates appear in
the order of their standing. The first
in the list has received the largest num
ber of votes, the second the next largest,
and so on throughout the entire list, the
one at the bottom having- received the
least number. If your candidate is well
down on the list it indicates that it will
be necessaiy for your friends to bestir
yourselves on his behalf if you would
have him win.

It is not generally known out one of
the finest pieces of property in Chicago
valued at $100,0i0 is owned by Mrs.
Maria Lewis an agfcd Colored lady.
The property is situated on Dearborn
street No. 298, the \o$ belonging to Mrs.
Lewis and to John T. Dale who owns the
six-story building thereon. Mr. F. W.
Rollins has been Mrs. Lewis' agent for
several years. He has been careful and
prudent in the management of the
property and has always advised Mrs.
Lewis to hold on to it. Several real
estate men have offered bribes to Mr
Rollins to get him to influence Mis.
Lewis to sell or change the lease, but he
was faithful to his trust, and he reaps
his reward in having the property given
to his sons.
MBS. MARIA LEWIS.
Mrs. Maria Lewis was born in Bell
ville 111., in the year 1813, after which
her folks removed to Alton, 111., where
they lived for a number of years.
At Alton she married a gentleman by
the name of Alexander Smith, and in
the year 1848 thev removed to Chicago,
and the first thing they did was to get
themselves a home. They located at

their lot was exchanged for lot 39.
Shortly after Mr. Smith, her husband,
took sick and died July 1st 1854. Mrs.
Smith tnen remained a widow until the
year 1862, she then married a gentleman
by the name of John Lewis.
FREDERICK SAMUEL ROLLINS.
In the year 1872 Reed & Sons wanted
to build a large building fronting Van
Buren street and running as far back on
Fourth avenue as possible. They of
fered to build her a two-story brick
house on lot 41 in exchange for lot 39, as
that would give them ample room to
build, what was afterward known as
Reeds Temple of Music by a good deal
of persuasion on the part of her husband
Jno. Lewis and Rev. R. De Baptist, she
was induced to make the exchange.
In the year 1876 her husband Jno.

informed by the Judge that he could
take his son the old gentleman took
from his pocket three straps, which
seemed to have been prepared for an
emergency of this kind. One of the
straps he buckled about the boy's waist.
Then each wrist was secured to the belt
by a strap. The boy submitted without
saying a word, and after the old gentle
man had harnessed the unfortunate
youngster to his satisfaction he quietly
moved off, remarking: "Now, Nat,
we'll go home and see the folks."
