In 1904, and again in 1908, the trusts
were united. They got the president
and the policies which they wanted.
This year the trusts have divided.
Being human, trust managers some
times quarrel. But observe this:
Some trusts are backing President
Taft, and some other trusts are backing
Mr. Roosevelt but not a trust in the
land is backing Gov. Wilson.
Gov. Wilson is the only candidate
whose policies cannot be controlled by
any trust. Therefore he is the only
candidate whose campaign is not
backed by any trust.

HONORABLE JAMES T. McDERMOTT.
, At the congressional election in 1906
after a spirited contest, with Charles
Wharton, the Hon. James T. McDer
mott, was elected to congress from the
fourth congressional district. He was
re-elected in 190S and in 1910, each
time with increased majorities, show
ing that ho stands high in the estima
tion of the voters in his district, re
gardless of their race, color or nation
ality and that a large number of in
dependent and progressive Republicans
at each election, record their votes in
his favor, feeling that he is plenty
good enough, to represent them in the
halls of Congress.
Congressman MeDermott, not with
any brass bands, in the past, diligently
labored in Congress for the best inter
est of aU the people, in his district, the
six years that he has so faithfully

Societies endorsed him and commended
In view of his eminent standing as a
first class and up-to-date business man,
for he is the president of the Fraternal
Printing Company, 2551 South State
street, the best and most extensive
printing establishment conducted by
Afro-Americans in Chieago, it should
be a source of great pleasure to every
Colored voter residing in the Third
Senatorial district to place an (X) on
Tuesday, November 5th, in front of his'
name. Elect him to the legislature and
thus honor the race to which ho be
served them. This fact was largely
manifested at the contest at the prim
aries last April
At that time with two opponents in
the field, he ran in under the wire
away ahead of both of them, with a
good healthy majority at his back.
Congressman MeDermott, who always
talks keen, sharp and right to the
point; has in many ways in the past
both in and out of Congress, shown his
friendship for the Colored race, and(
we take much pleasure in stating, that
many Afro-American voters in the
Fourth Congressional district, as many
of them supported him at the pri
maries; wiU on Tuesday, November 5th,
assist, to reelect him to Congress-for
the fourth form from the Fourth Con
