HON. SAMUEL AT.SfiTTTTT.Tnt.
Prominent lawyer, who Is exceedingly popular with the hosts of Democracy
throughout Illinois who may he selected as one of the next United States
Senators from this State.
UNITED STATES SENATOR, JOSEPH M. DIXON, THE HEAD AND FRONT
OF COL. ROOSEVELT'S BULL MOOSE MOVEMENT, DEFEATED IN
MONTANA.
CONGRESSMAN NICHOLAS LONGWORTH WENT DOWN UNDER
LANDSLIDE AT CINCINNATI, OHIO.
THE
CHARLES BOESCHENSTEIN, MEMBER OF THE DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL
COMMITTEE OF ILLINOIS WILL DISPENSE ALL THE FEDERAL
PATRONAGE FOR THE NEXT PRESIDENT IN THIS STATE.
WILLIAM L. O'CONNELL WILL BE THE CHIEF ADVISER FOR GOVER
NOR EDWARD F. DUNNE AND IF HE LIVES HE WILL MAKE THE
RACE FOR MAYOR OF CHICAGO TWO YEARS HENCE.
six or seven thousand Afro-American
voters from Gov. Wilson to CoL Roose
velt would have made all the differ
ence in the world in reference to its
electoral vote.
Their votes in other sections of the
country have made it possible for Gov.
Wilson to carry California and with
their aid it will require the official
count in several doubtful states to de-
presidential and vice-presidential conH cide whether or not Wilson and Mar-.
The smoke of the battle in connec
tion with the great presidential con
test is fast clearing away and it is
freely admitted by the leading poli
ticians on all sides that more than
six hundred thousand Afro-Americans
assisted to swell the great majorities
recorded in favor of the election of
Governor Wilson and Governor Mar
shall, in their more than successful
tests in the various states in this
country.
In Maryland, the leaders of the Re
publican party .loudly, claim that the
"Colored voters turned their backs
upon it, voted the Democratic ticket
in large numbers; thereby" assisting to
transfer that -.state over 'into the
Democratic column after it had been
under Republican control for some
time.
This is also true in relation to the
seventy-five thousand Colored voters
residing in New York City and in all
partd of that stale; for it is estimated
that fully 50 -per cent of them closed
their eyes tight against all the Re
publican candidates and open and
above board willingly Toted or the
Jaonorable William Sulxer, ana
eaeh and everyone
nates.
Here in this "city and throughout
Illinois, theelectfon retornexsr
mcate that znanyjtfchousanai;.Airo
aeriean voters bravely stood bjkGoyjr
ernor elect Edward JF. Dunne -and .his
associates on tie DemocraHc ticket and
in the last issue of The Broad"' Ax, 'be
fore the eleettbn to-aitnr63-3ad'c6
for
shall, will not receive practically the
electoral vote of every state in the
United States.
So it must be freely admitted that
more Afro-Americans broke away
from the Republican bosses at the last
election and voted for Wilson and
Marshall and other Democrats in the
various parts of the country, than at
any other period in the history of this
country.
The new Democratic President on
assuming the duties of 'his high office
at the executive mansion at Washing-
m
ion, IX C, will, see to it that the doors
of the White House jWill always swing
both ways for all comers; that eaeh
and. every citizen t regardless of jugj!
station in liio or his race or nation
ality will bo reeeiv.od in good old plain
of his rnnningDemocratic -fashion. .'

to have tha chance to rota for him for
tho third term President of the United
States, all along the lino on the day of
the election. For United States Sena
tor Joseph M. Dixon, who failed in his
attempt to bribo and buy up tho 6S
Colored delegates, attending the Re
publican National Convention, last
June in this city for Col. Roosevelt
and who was the second head and front
of the Bull Moose movement; who pre
dicted, through the columns of the Chi
cago Tribune, Sunday, November 3,
that a great landslide was in store for
Col. Roosevelt, and that tho electoral
votes of tho following states, would
bo cast for tho former "Bough Rid
ing" President.
"Tho nation will be astounded at
tho enormous vote for Roosevelt and
Johnson next Tuesday," said Senator
Dixon. "The election returns of four
years ago count for nothing in the
present contest. All indications point
to a Roosevelt landslide. No one
longer questions that either CoL Roose
velt or lr. Wilson will be elected
President. Taft will certainly be a
bad third in the race, with Debs push
ing him closely for third place in Con
necticut, Illinois and Indiana."
The States claimed for tho Pro
gressives by tho Chicago Tribune of
the same data were:
Colorado, California, Connecticut,
Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Tr",
Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana,
Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jer

electoral votes.

Almost one month has elapsed since
the sham reformers, the owners and
managers of tho daily newspapers in
this city and some of them are mak
ing money by robbing the city out of
several hundred thousand dollars each
year by side stepping their just and
honest taxes, the money from which
should be expended to assist to educate
the thousands of little children in this
city, who are growing up in gross ig
noranee and the government officials
started in to convict, hang or send
John Arthur Johnson, the heavy weight
prize fighting champion of the world
to tho pen or to jail before he was
really indicted and after the govern-1
ment had spent thousands of dollars
of the peoples money wMch eomes out
of the pockets of the poor and not
out of the pockets of the rich and Mgh
brows, in a vain effort to fasten some
crime on Jack Johnson in connection
with Miss Lueile Cameron.
Let ns repeat it namely, after the
government officials had spent thou
sands of dollars of the people's money
in a vain effort to investigate the so
called virtue of, a warm girl who un
derstands how to make love to men if
they have the money to pay for her
love; they were finally forced to ad
mit that. Miss Lucira Cameron forced
hersel on Jack-Johnson- instead -of
him forcing his attentions upoarher, ?
That in no shape nor form had he
violated the MannWMie Slave Law in
relation to her in anyway; then he gov
ernment officials hating to permit a "Ne
gro through Ms lawyers to "beat 'them
Juried 'the pages of tte books twd years
containing the while -slave and after
speeding 'a' lot of more-money belong

that at about that time taWaeJe-3oaa-son
had permitted Mm self to come in
close contact with Miss Sells Sckrei-
ber, who according to the Chicago Tri
bune had for sometime prior to
that time had made her home at the
notorious Everleigh sisters' Club, which
was located on Dearborn Street be
tween 21st and 22nd Streets and after
leaving that plaee Miss Schreiber was
glad and willing to make love to Jack
Johnson for his money which they
hated to admit that a lady of her Mgh
social standing would consent to ac
cept money and other things from a
big "Black Nigger" as they refer to
him and all other Colored men in priv
ate conversation, so he was promptly
indicted for transporting this first class
WMte lady (Nit) from Pittsburg, Pa.
to Chicago.
He was arrested, hand cuffed to a
deputy United States Marshal, dragged
to the Cook county jail, simply charged
with violating the Mann WMte Slave
Law; the government officials and the
federal judges absolutely refusing to
accept a cash bond of from thirty to
forty thousand dollars for his release,
and they would not permit Ids' mother
Mrs. Tiny Johnson, who holds title to
improved property in this city, worth
from twenty-fire to thirty thousand r
dollars, to sign Ms bond.
