Hon. Patrick J. Carr
Tut Regular Democratic Candidate for Treasurer of Cook County,
Who Will Come In Under The Wire Far Ahead of AH of His
So-Called Opponents Primary Day, Tuesday, April 11.
County Treasurer Patrick J. Carr
desires that it be distinctly under
stood that he "has nothing to do with
tie increase in taxes." For the city
of Chicago he is the tax collector and
the first tax bills showing an aver
age increase of 42 per cent will be
nailed out Monday to residents of
the towns of Jefferson and West Chi
cago. Because of the enormous boost, Mr.
Carr has printed a folder which he
proposes to send out with each tax
bill mailed. This says its "official in
formation about taxes" and adds that
it "will save you worry, time and

The treasurer puts this pungent
statement in black face type.
"The taxpayers of Cook county will
save time and add greatly to the effi
ciency of this office by remembering
that the county treasurer has nothing
to "do with the increase in taxes. His
sworn duty is to collect all taxes and
he has absolutely no authority to
change any tax."
Can's Plan Commended
Circulars of this general character
should have been issued by county
treasures years ago, it was point
ed out-. Many poor people are un
acquainted with the system by which
tax reductions are obtained. They
ay as they are assessed, while others
who know the system obtain tax re
ductions. The result Is the inequity
in taxation, about which the public
Under the heading relating to tax
snarks, the pamphlet explains the sys

overdue taxes to tax buyers, the in
terest they may charge, the added
fees and penalties which may be col

erty may be redeemed.
Regarding the convenience of pay
ing taxes at the substations, the treas
urer says that he has established
eighty-six places 'whera payments
may be made.
"We are asking you to take advan

Mr. Carr continues, "so that you may
avoid the congestion and large loss
of time caused'by the throng of many
thousands daily in the county treas

CHARLES E. STUMP, THE HIGH STEP
PING TRAVELING CORRESPOND
ENT FOR THE BROAD AX, HAS
BEEN BASKING IN THE SUNSHINE
DOWN IN FLORIDA.
Patka, Florida. It takes a man to
live down here in this country, and
that has nothing to do with his color,
but if you belong to my race you must
almost be a super-man that is putting
it in mild terms. I know whereof. I
speak and I am sure that you know
just what I am talking about.
But I am not here to talk to you
about that this week but I want to re
mind you that just little more than a
month from now an opportunity will
be given the American people to pay
a tribute to one of the great men of
America, and I am saying nothing
about race or color, for true greatness
is not measured by color, by size, by
hair, but by mind and by service ren
dered to mankind. This will fit our
hero in whose honor a monument will
be uncovered in a few days, Booker
T. Washington. No. his monument is
already uncovered when you look at
those great buildings at Tuskegee In
stitute, and the thousands of men and
women in all parts of the country who
stand out a.s the result of Booker T.
Washington having lived and served.
He was indeed a great servant, and m
his service he knew no race or color,
he represented the Christ.
We all rejoice that Booker T. Wash
ington lived. Those who knew him
are glad to say that they did, and those
of us who enjoyed his friendship are
the happier about it. He was a man
who loved his people I mean by that
the human race. He was inspiration
to so many, and now that he has gone,
the people will gather at Tuskegee
April 5, and witness the exercises of
unveiling that which will remind gen
erations to come that Booker T. Wash
ington was at one time on this earth.
A hundred years from now, all who
knew him perhaps will be gone, but
the boys and girls then will talk about
him, and they will know him by what
he has left behind. Just as we talk
about George Washington, Abraham
Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, and
others they will be talking about
Booker T. and other great men who
have lived and died.
I would suggest to you now that if
you have decided to go there, then and
I hope that you have, you will notify
Dr. Robert R. Moton, or his secretary,
Albion A. Holsey, at Tuskegee Insti
tute, Ala., that provisions may be nvde
Speaking of Dr. Robert R. Moton, I
am sure that you are glad that you
know him, and if you do not I would
advise you to try to get to shake hands
with him, for after a while he will
step into the Great Beyond, and we
will be talking about him. He is one
of greatest living Americans of this
age, and he is doing his work and
doing it welL He is pleading our cause
where we cannot plead it ourselves,
and he is truly a representative of the
race. He is a giant in statue as well
as in intellect. He is the direct suc
cessor to Booker T. Washington, and
God prepared him for the work He
was a personal friend to Dr. Wash
ington, and like Dr. Washington, he
worked his way through school. He
earned his place not by luck, but by
work, and he will stand out as a
great character. I can point to him to
day as an example for our boys. He
represents the possibilities of the race.
In the life of Hampton he filled a
place that will take years to filL He
was a man every inch of him, and he
is a man today. He is a God-man, a
race man, a man for the human race.
I feel like dropping a flower at the
feet of Secretary Holsey, but will not
have time to do so- this week, but will
do so before we get to the April 5
meeting. He is falling nis place ana
doing it well. Then there is that other
great American, Emmett J. Scott, and
when you talk about Dr. Washington,
the "name of Emmett J. Scott will come
before you, because they lived and
served together. I wish that I could
tell you many things about him, but
when I go to Washington soon, I am
going to tell you about Mr. Scott, and
his great work.
The Baptists of this country are get
ting ready for their two big meetings,
the one in New Orleans in June, he

that their preachers must take the trip.
and the men themselves are getting
ready. I -will keep you posted from
time to time.
The Methodists are going to have a
big meeting in Chicago next August,
and it wffl be a meeting of the young
people. Secretary S. S. Morris, of
Norfolk, Va, is getting things in readi
ness for this great event, and it is
going to be some meeting honey. If
yon belong to the African Methodist
Episcopal church yoj must get ready
for t" great eveat.
Speaking of the African Methodist
cisrefc, I am here this week looking
at Bishop John Hnrst hold the Soaih
Florida annual conference and it is
well attended by representative men
and women from all parts of the coun
try. It is one more great big meeting.
Bishop Hurst is not making much fuss,
but he is just making his place in his
tory, and he will rank at the close of
his career with Payne, Way, and
Grant, Arnett, Derrick, and others of
that class. The world will know that
he lived in this world, and Florida mil
have its place at the head in the con
nection. He has had a fight, for when
he came to the state it was as full
of factions as the bedbug full of human
blood, but now they are pulling as
one. Here and there a man will rise
up and show some of the hades spirit.

The state will go to the next general
conference asking for the election of
the Rev. Dr. R. A. Grant to the epis
copacy, and he is a fine man, he is a
scholar and a leader of men. I know
of no man who will do more good on
the bench. Right along with him wili
come the Rev. Dr. A. L. Gaines, of
Baltimore, Md., a brainy minister, a
preacher and a lover of his people. By
all means he should be placed on the
bench. I shall have something to say
about it in another letter. Every day

A living room of all rooms In the
home Is the most Important, and one
writer says: "Furnishing a living
room Is like starting out on a voyage
of dIscovery.,, This room should be
furnished with thought for the need
and comfort of each individual mem
ber of the family. Give to the master
of the household a comfortable fireside
chair, a table beside that chair on
which he can place a paper, magazine,
book or any other things that he may
wish there; give him his own reading
lamp and a comfortable stool in front
of Ms chair.
