The end of the most interesting
presidential contest the nation has wit
nessed since the celebrated Jefferson
Burr contest of a hundred years ago,
brings the Colored men of the country
in the North and South alike face
to face with the political crisis prom
ised in 1896, "when the bourbon South
began the insiduous campaign for the
subjugation of the Colored citizen a
I campaign, as all men now see, that
without foundation is seen in the al
most unanimous rejection by Colored
men of the principles of the Progress

that includes .a pledge to every cause
save the cause of the American Negro
and their return to the principles
and platform of the Bepublican Party,
that has stood unmoved against all the
changing years, and that now suffers

COLORED PREACHES- IN MIGHTY
When the clerk of the court called
the name of Mrs. Mary Hart, Tuesday,
October 9th, probably the oldest
prisoner ever in the Desplaines street
court was arraigned before Municipal
Judge Torrison. Mrs. Hart, 1858 Car
roll avenue, is a Colored womah one
hundred years old. She was arraigned
on a charge of disorderly conduct on
the complaint of D. J. demons, 3534
Vernon avenue, a Colored minister.
Knowing nothing about the trouble
between Bev. demons and Mrs. Hart,
but it seems to us that it was very
unmanly on his part to have her ar
rested and dragged into court.

Six weeks ago Colored men had
political blind staggers. They saw all
things and discerned nothing. They
heard a name and saw a-form. They
did not realize that that name, once
a sign of justice, was become a byword
in the seats of the dishonored; and that
fcrm, onco a majestic figure, was now
but a shadow of a mighty man!
Theodore Eoosevelt, in the first blush
of a new political stroke, appealed to
tho imagination of the great mass of
Colored people. But as his plans and
purposes unfolded themselves before
the people, under the logic and fearful
licans cf the South.
Colored men know that the woeful
possibilities of the Initiative, for by
that sign the Democratic party in the
South, twin-devil with the Progressive
party, disfranchised the Colored men

Colored men are alive to the evil

aroused for their people's sake, Mr.
Eoosevelt 's part in the chief political
conspiracy of the century became clear.
Zeal gave way to thought, and thought
did its work. From Santa Cruz to
Nahant, and from the tell-tale waters
of Niagara to El Paso, Colored men
are now in dread battle against two
forces of evil arrayed with like power
against them and against their chil
dren Mr. Boosevelt and his cohorts
on the one hand, and on the other, tho
ancient enemies of the state, the party
wearing tho label of Democracy, but
really floating the flag of oppression.
The charge has often been made that
Colored men follow personalities
moving figures in the political arena
and that they care little for platforms
and principles. That this charge is j
strong in the law against the ignorant
wrangle of the mob. Colored men are
aware that the property and personal
and .political rights of the Negro race
would in no wise be secure or sacred
if a Becall by the prejudice-drunken
populace awaited a judge who dared
to be true.
These are principles, eternal prin
ciples, and Colored men everywhere are
awake to them, their importance, their
significance and their possibilities.
Booker T. Washington, himself a great
Bepublican, and an ardent advocate of
the re-election of President Taft, is
right: the interest of tho Negro every
where is one, and he is again right
when he boldly takes his place under
the Bepublican banner as the safest
shelter from political storm. Adv.

loathed creature, Jack Johnson, whose
primary offense of failing to get him

by daring to become the gamest and
most .scientific fighter since Castor

upon a. love affair without the consent
of all the Common Councils and Boards
of Trade in Illinois and Minnesota,
