The theatre was filled to its utmostjea
pacity, and the stage was filled with rep
resentative Colored men, called together
to denounce the Republican nomination
of Henry L. Hertz as Coroner. E. H.
Morris piesided and E. H. Wright was
secretary. Stirring speeches were made
by Mr. Morris, and J. W. E. Thomas,
Rev. T. W. Henderson, H. C. Carter,
John H. Howard, County Attorney E.
H. Bliss and Isaac P. Rivers. With the
exception of Mr. Bliss, all of the speak
ers roundly attacked Mr, Hertz. Near
ly 2000 persons attended. Nearly every
representative Colored man in Chicago
was present, and every sentiment of
hostility to Mr. Hertz was received with
the most decided remarks of approval.
The speakers declared Mr. Hertz hadin
A suited not only the Colored people of
Chicago, but the race everywhere in the
United States. One of them said that
nearly all present were Republicans,
but they were Republicans who now
dared to assert their rights.
They had protested vigorously against
his nomination at the time it was made,
but they were not listened to. Mr.
Thomas, one of the speakers, declared
this was because the Colored people in
the past had tamely submitted to any
and all wrongs, and to the further im
pression that those that could not be won
over by pursuasion could be bought over.
That time had past the Colored people
now knew their importance in politics
and they proposed disciplining tne Ee
publican party a trifle. It wasstated by
one speaker after another that the Col
ored people of Cook County are practi
cally unanimous in then purpose to vote
"Mr Hertz was nominated for Coroner
in this hall, and the meeting lo-night is
an Indication that his funeral has begun

A series of resolutions was presented
and adopted amid the most enthusiastic
applause. These resolutions, after recit
ing the fact that a coroner's jury had re
turned a verdict to the effect that it was
pernicious to morals lor Colored and
white children to be employed together,
and that Mr. Hertz had indorsed this
sentiment, adds that "Henry L. Hertz

A Little Political Advice Re
Every Colored man should look ,r-
ward to the election which is neai and
decide that he will see that his vote is
properly recorded for Harrison, Mor
ton and A. E. Willson, the Republican
nominee for Congress from this-district.
The fact that Aaron Kohn and Ex-chief
of police James Whallen seem to be the
leaders of the Democratic party, is
enough to prohibit the Colored men for
voting the Democrat ticket. Everybody
knows Aaron Kohn, and how he used
every means to criminate one of the
race, Wm. vPatterson who was hanged
last June. He was untiring in his efforts,
and surrendered at last in having the
end he sought accomplished. Aaron
Kohn h-s lost his grip not only with
the Colored people but the best think
ing class aud most influential white
people have lost confidence in him and
sav they cannot be identified with such
a man. Aaron Kohn wants to be re
elected to the place of Alderman for
the 4th ward which position he has held
for several years, but we are glad to
know that e\ery Colored, man the
ward is acquainted with his name and
shall do what they can to defeat him in
As we understand the pastors of the
several churches will take a hand in this
matter urging the voters of their church
to vote against such men as Aaron
Kohn and Whallen. The white
and Colored people alike, last August
served Aaron Kobn'g candidate under
the prosecuting attorney, and the
very happv defeat of Kohn himself in
December will seem another for theto
intereet of the public and city of Louis
ville in putting down such men assermon
Kohn W have had the word of some
of the leading white men of the uty
that such men as Kohn who have done
so much to cover the dignity of our
city, would not receive their support
and they would do what they could to
defeat them and vote against Aaron
Kohn, Jim Whallen, and O law.
