COLORED PREACHER IN MIGHTY
When the clerk of the court called
the name of Mrs. Mary Hart, Tuesday,
October 29th, 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 avenne, a Colored minister.
Knowing nothing about the trouble
between Eev. Clemons 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.
CoL Daniel Moriarity, head of the
fighting 7th Begiment Illinois National
Guard, is gaining much strength each
day in his contest for one of the com
missioners of Cook county, and as he
has many friends in all parts of it; he
looks like an easy winner.
Mrs. Charles Lapsley of Chicago,
who for the past three years has been
living in Prince Bupert, British Co
lombia is en route here from Seattle.
Mrs. Coleman was agreeably sur
prised when at an early hour her
friends came in to remind her that
God had spared her to see 76 years of
age, being of a retiring nature as her
daughter made no mention of the Day,
she thought it had been forgotten, and
decided to just let it pass by unnoticed
but as she afterward remarked, "All
things come to he who waits,'1 those
present were, Mrs. Taylor, 5628
Wabash, Mrs. Harris, 5208 State, Mrs.
Beasley and daughter, 4719 Evans,
Mrs. Pope, and Mrs. Johnson, 5402

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
campaign, as all men now see, that
culminated in the amazing attitude of
Theodore Boosevelt, and in the bold
and wicked daring of the captains sur
rounding him, who are notorious no
less as enemies to a democracy to in
clude all men of all races than as
buccaneers on the high sea of political
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
form, once a majestic figure, was now
but a shadow of a mighty man!
Theodore Boosevelt, in the first blush
of a new political stroke, appealed to
the imagination of the great mass of
Colored people. But as his plans and
purposes nnioided uemseives bexore
the people, under the logic and fearful
eloquence of leading Colored men,
aroused for their people's sake, Mr.
Boosevelt 's part in the chief political
conspiracy of the century became dear.
Zeal gave -way to thought, and thought
did its work. Prom 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, tie
ancient enemies of the state, the party
wearing the 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 I shelter from political storm. Adv.
without foundation is seen in the al
most unanimous rejection by Colored
men of the principles of the Progress
ive party particularly of a platform
that includes .a pledge to every cause
save the cause of tho 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
the bitter opposition of the voters be
cause the party ieaders refused to
betray or desert the Colored Bepub
lieans of 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 tho Colored men
of the South, starting in Mississippi in
Colored men are alive to the evil
consequences of the Beferendum, for
under that star the ignorant white
electorate of the South put their seal
of approval upon the crimes of the
Democratic constitutional conventions
that had annulled the spirit and de
graded the letter of the amendments
to the organic law.
Colored men understand the sig
nificance involved in the acceptance
and adoption bf the Beeall, for they
have seen the judiciary of an entire
nation tremble when they should be
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 Beeall by the prejudice-drunken
poDulaco awaited a judge who dared
to be true.
Theso 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 advoeate of
the re-election of President Taft, is
right: the interest of the Negro every
where is one, and he is again right
when he boldly 'takes his place under
the Bepublican banner as the safest

Bepublican candidate for re-election to

growth, from a fair sized country

Joseph Medill Patterson,
If yon can persuade the Governor
to call out State Militia, I might try
to induce President Taft to mobilize
the Army in Cook County, and the
Fleet on Lake Michigan. This with
the Attorney General in personal
charge of, Federal prosecution would
possibly protect chaste Chicago," and
immaculate Minneapolis from the de
moralizing influence" of that Hell
loathed creature, Jack Johnson, whose
primary offense of failing to get him
self born white, has been supplemented
by daring to become the gamest and
most, scientific fighter since Castor
and Pollox, and .finally, by venturing
upon a. love affair without the consent
of all the Common Councils and Boards
of Trade in niinois and Minnesota.
The spectacle of twjj great American
cities lashing themselves into the fury
of a Georgia lynching mob, over an
alleged offense as deplorably common
among whites, as campaign lying, is
a record exhibition to this old gray
world of easting hypocracy, especially,
on the part of a Nation with three
millions stnlattees, quadroons and oc-tar8oas,-among
its native born popula
tion, and that has made wife, swapping
and divorce an .established instiatien.
