WAS YOUR MAIL DELAYED?
WHOSE FAULT WAS IT?
'In the Chicago branch house of the
bsgi-est business enterprise in the
world the Post Office Department
th'ee hundred men, or nearly eight per
cent of the entire force, are engaged
in the correction of the common pre
ventable errors of-the mailing public.
Last year more than 25,000,000 pieces
of mail were received at .the Chicago
Pot Office either incorrectly addressed
or so improperly prepared that theyT
quired from three to five additional
handlings and even then less than one
third of the .mail so handled could he
delivered. There is Something Wrong
that Delays or Prevents Delivery With
One Piece of Every One Hundred
Forty-nine Pieces, of Mail Deposited
by the Public and -a little care in. prep
aration would prevent most of these
delays and non-deliveries.

' On A'ugust 13, a picture of Mr.
Alexander Flower, President of the
RobseveJtt State Bank, 35th and
Grand Boulevard, appeared in the col
umns of this paper, at the same time
stating, that he" had consented to ber
com: the campaign treasurer in the
drive to raise pne hundred thousand
dollars for the Fort Dearborn Hos
pital and Training School for colored
On August 20, it was also an
nounced in these columns that Hon.
Thomas Carey, President of the Chi
cago National Life Insurance Com
pany, had become the General Chair
man of the campaign committee, and
that he was ready and willing to pull
off his coat and pitch in and do every
thing in his power to rake in the
one hundred thousand dollars which
has been so sadly needed to 'provide
a permanent home and training
school fpr the nurses and to be in
better shape to look after the sick and
the afflicted and make life more bear
able for them in every way.
It will be further recalled that in
accepting the chairmanship of the
campaign committee, that Chairman
Carey stated in the plainest language
at his command, "that he did not
want any politics dragged into the
one hundred thousand dollar drive
for a greater Fort Dearborn Hospital
and Training School for Colored
Nurses, that he wanted the hearty
support of the white and colored fol
lowers of Mayor William Hale
Thompson, as well as the support of
those who march under the (banner
of Hon. Charles S. Deneen and
Chairman Carey naturally expects
that all the leading Democrats will
fall in line and greatly assist to aid
the movement for a greater Fort
Dearborn Hospital and Training
School for Colored Nurses.
"This is the first time in this sec
tion of the country that the colored
people have come before-the people of
Chicago to ask for assistance, and
we feel that they will not failus, for
the colored people have given much;
in fact, their alL

thing daring the great world's war

inrated at 3831-35 Vernott Avenue.
and it is the largest colored institu
tion in this dry. It has seventy-hve
beds lot patients and in the past and
at the present tone it accompusn
ing much good for humanity.' '

so-called leaders of the colored peo
ple residing in the Second Ward are
perfectly -willing to transform a fun
eral into a political meeting, provid
ing that they are seeking some politi
cal office for themselves or for their
white political masters.
It is this class of narrow-minded,
short-stop leaders, both men and
women who will not attend, any pub
lic meetings in the interest of the
Fort Dearborn Hospital, to save their
lives who have "not so far aided the
movement "in any way for a larger
and beter Fort Dearborn Hospital,
who are in favor of dragging it into
politics and use it as a political kite
for the special benefit of some short
sighted, slavish and cold-blooded and
selfish politician who is not interest
ed in the common or poor people,
bnt this class simply want to feather,
their own nests at the"cxpcnse of the
public and then turn around and pose
as the true and. only Simon-pure
leaders of the colored race in the sec
As stated before, Chairman Carey
does not want politics dragged into
the continued onehundred thousand
dollaV drive for the Fort Dearborn
Hospital. On the contrary, he still
desires the hearty support of the
Thompson republicans, both white
and colored; the Deneen republicans
and he wants the warm support of
the big leaders among the democrats.
In short, he earnestly desires the aid
and the financial support of all the
citizens of Chicago, regardless of their
race or politics-to assist to transform
the Fort Dearborn Hospital into one
of the best hospitals fn Chicago.
The following gentlemen who rank
among the best and the most pro
gressive citizens and successful bus
iness men of Chicago have been
elected trustees of the Fort Dear
born Hospital for-the ensuing year:
Hon. Thos. Carey, President-Chicago,
National Life Insurance Co

With- the above-named gentlemen
guiding and directing the business af

anew and' bloom and . blossom like
unto the beautiful rose in June.
The next Issue of this: paper wiH
contain the .names of .its many
friends -and readers who . have con
tributed money to the Fort DearbornH
New York. A national conference,
which has possibilities .as an epoch
making event in the history and re
lationships of the colored race in this
country, has been called .to meet at
Cincinnati, Dec 1 to 4 next It will
include on its program professional,
business and religious leaders of both
the white and colored races -who are
actively interested in the solution of
racial problems. The general subject
will be attacked from the standpoint
of how best- to promote and. expand
efforts directed towards meeting the
outstanding needs of colored men. and
boys in educational, vocational, relig
ious and physical lines.
The call, for the conference, the
twentieth national event of its kind, has
been issued by the Colored Men's De
partment of the Young Men's Chris
tian Association of North America,
comprising a membership of 23,000 men
and boys and 10,000 students. No such
copference has been held since 1909,
when a group of outstanding leaders
and laymen met in Louisville, Ky.
Since that time there has .been a
marked advance in the moral and ed
ucational life of the colored race in
this country, and during that time the
work as represented in the -Colored
Men's Department of the Y.M.CA.
has had extensive and fruitful growth.
It is confidently felt, therefore, that
there now exists a much broader and
stronger foundation upon which to
build effective plans for the future in
co-operation with educational and
spiritual forces available' from many
sources. It is the hope that the work
and results of the conference will con
stitute a timely contribution towards
the solution of problems conspicuous
throughout the world today.
Through the co-operation of both
white and colored organizations in
Cincinnati, arrangements are being
made to care for an attendance of 500
delegates. The conference will be self
entertaining and self-supporting.
"The success hoped for this confer
ence in the way of promoting the weir
fare of colored Americans and in help
ing our country and the world at large
to solve important problems," states
Dr. J. E. Moorland, Senior Secretary
of the Colored Men's Department of
the Y.M.GA, "depends largely upon
the extent to which our colored lay
men interest themselves personally in
it For that reason every Colored
Y.M.CA. has been asked to plan to
bring a strong delegation. Each of
our city railroad and industrial Asso
ciations has been urged to have, if pos
sible, its entire committee of manage
ment or board of directors in attend
ance at the conference, and also some
outstanding men from among the active-members.
"The conference will not have. legis
lative functions. It will offer unusual
opportunity for mutual acquaintance
as well as for exchange of opinion and
experience upon vitally important
Dr. Moorland has already received
gratifying reports from several Asso
ciation centers as to the number of
delegates who will. go to Cincinnati,
but he hopes that full quotas from
other points throughout the country
will be reported soon so that the ar
rangements for their entertainment in
the conference city can be completed
as soon as possible.
Among those interested in the work
is Julius Rosenwald, head of Sears,
Roebuck &, Co., of Chicago, whose
personal efforts and gifts over an 'ex
tended period have largely made pos
sible the erection and equipment of As
sociation buildings for colored men,
in many cities. The list of speakers
will include many men, both white
and colored, of national and interna
tional prominence. Announcement of
the names of speakers' and details of
the program will be made later. Any
one desiring further information should
communicate with the local Y.M.CA.'
