Vol. XVHI.
CHICAGO, NOVEMBER 9, 1912
No. 6
GOVEBNOB WOODEOW WILSON.
The new Democratic President of the United States.
BEAUREGARD F. MOSKT.KY.
Elector at Largo from Illinois Says:
Taking the latest returns to be cor
rect, I am, by the vote of a majority
of the four million electors of Illinois,
entitled to convene "with twenty-eight
others at such place as the Governor
may designate, Monday, January 13th,
1913 and exercise the highest preroga
tive of an elector, by voting for the
man I believe to be best fitted to serve
the People of this, my country as its
President for four years commencing
March 4th next. This honor coming
jnst ninety days after the .formation
and birth of the new or Progressive
Party and as a result of its first or
initial act in its comprehensive clean
and clear cut program for Social jus
tice toward all men, and that, too, in
face of a nil record made by the Re
publican Party and the Democratic
Party for tho past fifty years, the
former the recipient for forty-two years
of tho voto and support of my People,
and tho latter its erst while friend;
with no precedent to follow or hope of
reward to accrue, except a furtherance
of its program-social justice, convinces
me that the thinking men and women
of the world will not longer hesitate
to admit tho sincerity, value and ser
vice the Progressive Party can, and
will be in the future to mankind, un
der the leadership of one, whose Re
ligion is to labor fraternally to build
up the unity of the human family and
that one, is and shall bo my choice for
President, Theodore Boosevelt.
Brother Moseley you will never have
the pleasure of casting your electorial
vote for Col. Boosevelt, for he is a
dead cock in tho pit!

newly elected Governor of minds, who -was loyany supported by many
thousand Aftp-Aaericatt voters throagaoot this state.
Tuesday, November 5, 1912, will be
remembered by the politicians of the
various political parties, throughout the
United States, and their descendents, to
tho end of recorded time. For it was
on that date, that the greatest polit
ical landslide occurred in the United
States and possibly in tho history of
tho world.
The ereat uneonquered and unnum
bered hosts of Democracy, marched with
almost no opposition from Maine to
the Gulf of Mexico and from the At
lantic to tho Pacific Ocean. Its mighty
host trampled down the strong holds
of tho Republicans, in its onward
march, across and throughout the
Amprirnn Continent and nlantcd the
triumphant flag or banner of Democ
racy, on its strongest and furtherest
outposts.
It was like a great tidal wave,
sweeping or rolling over the entiro
country and almost engulfing and sub
merging everything in its wake.
It was not sectional, but universal
in its triumph and Victory. It knew
no south, so north, no east and no
west.
TJia -rttrr Tirana or lcinfl of Democ
racy, "which seems to bo firmly encircled
in tho hearts of the great mass of the
American ieople, regardless of their
race or nationality or previous political
affiliations, rushed Woodrow Wilson
and Thomas B. Harahall on into the
Presidential and Tiee Presidential
chairs, vita tremendous and nspreeo
dented majorities at their backs, carry
ing forty to forty-one states out of
forty-eight states in tho union, receiving
tour hundred and tfiirty-threo electoral
votes sure, including tho electoral votfc
of Illinois, and possibly four hundred
and forty-three electoral votes will bo
cast for them in the electorial college
out of five hundred and thirty-one, tho
states casting their electoral votes for
them, appears in another column of
this paper.
They received the greatest electoral
vote ever cast for presidential or vice
presidential, candidates in tho United
States. The landslide in their favor
and tho great political upheavel or rev
olution, assumed such vast propor
tions, that it is very difficult to write
about it, or to elaborate upon it in
an intelligent manner.
It will be recalled, by those who
were fortunate enough, to read a copy
of the last issuo of The Broad Ax,
wherein it was stated; that "Woodrow
Wilson would receive 325 electoral
votes, 59 more than are needed to elect
him; that he will receive the greatest
popular majority or plurality ever re
ceived by a presidential candidate;
that he will sweep through many states,
practically without any opposition, and
that he will bo the. next President of
the United States."
That "hundred of thousands of Afro
Americans would voto for Mm in all
parts of tho United States and march
GOVERNOR THOMAS E. MARSHALL.
The new Vico President of tho United States.
on to victory with him."
At this point, another paragraph on
tho election of Woodrow Wilson is re
produced from tho last issuo of Tho
Broad Ax:
"Never havo wo mado the slightest
pretensions of being the first, second
or third son of a prophet, but wo verily
believe that on Tuesday, November 5th,
this all-prevailing spirit and feeling
on tho part of the people, that it is
timo to make a change, will sweep
Woodrow Wilson into tho White
House."
No question about it; wo feel quite
elated over tho fact; that we were
able to hold our car close to the ground,
and distinctly hear, the mighty tread
and tho rumbelings of the sixteen mil
lion voters and that more than seven
million of that number recorded their
votes in favor of the election of Wil
son and Marshall and to clearly and
rightly read tho signs of tho times.
It is therefore, our firm and honest
conviction that when President Wilson
and Vice President Marshall, assume
the reins of this government, on the 4th
of March, 1913; that peace, happiness
and prosperity, on the part of, all the
peoplo will be increased- ten folds and
that this country, will surpass itself
in every way, as the greatest nation
on earth.
Col. Theodore Boosevelt, ran second
in tho great presidential contest, re
ceiving seventy-seven electorial votes,
meeting with ignominious and inglor
ious defeat; the American people decid
ing for once and for all time to come,
that it makes not the slighest differ
ence how popular ho may be he can
never be elected president of tho
United States, for tho third timo and
as predicted in these columns last week
that he was riding madly and wildly
and that ho was blindly riding to his
first and to his last greatest political
fall.
Tho former Bough Biding President,
who branded the Negro race as a race
of rapists and criminals, is completely
down and out, unhorsed and he never
will bo ablo to come back into national
politics.
Of all men he is the most dangerous
man in every way that could ever bo
elected President of tho United States.
Farewell, and if forever farewell, the
well Col. Boosevelt for you have ran
your third and last national race.
President William Howard Taft, as
predicted in these columns many times
ran third in the raco and only received
the 8 electorial votes of Utah and Ver
mont; the Republican Party being com
