Republican Candidate for Re-Election As a Turstee of the
Sanitary District of Chicago, Owing to the Splendid and
Honorable Record Which He Has Made in His Present Posi
tion, Entitles Him to Re-Election on Tuesday, November 7.
Lately Mr. Lawley Secured the Appointment of Miss Gert

that and leads those people, that are
the real American citizens.
Bishop Fallows never sougHt lord
liness; he never sought public praise,
if he did he would never have met
the people he met; he would have
never inspired the people he inspired
and caused them to advance in Amer
icanism and in right living. A leader
isiist be among God's people; a Chief
tain cannot desert his army, and
Bishop Fallows knew, because he
first saw his American activities in
the days when statesmen knew that
'"Ty could not Ijve and could
-mr great except free great
u' ce great and glorious, and that
c words -were written in life's
' that-all men are free and
icnew that that "great truth

a million men, and therefore
an eternal truth in America,
i kwiileman "on the platform, Rev.
E. L. Williams told me a little story
m my office yesterday; and I am
afraid that they are not going to let
him speak; he was going to leave the
platform a few minutes ago, and when
tie was leaving he left his best wishes
wtfc us, and knowing that I was to
fee the next speaker, said to me in a
tow lone of voice: "How long, O,
1-ord, how long?" (Laughter), and
with that got up and left me. Bishop
Fallows was a religious educator. I
Slave heard a text of scripture that
applied to that churchman's life ex

nent guest taking his seat' at the foot
of the tzble. Bishop Fallows always

there where the work was always to
be done and the example, always set.
It was generally supposed that he
was a pacifist, a man who attempted
to go through life most easily; but it
was not true. He departed from
these channels, that he might seize
the sword of righteousness, and rode
through battles that his brother
might be freed, and he did not lay
down the sword until the battles were
won, and the men for whom he strug
gled had seen the light of freedom's
day, and preached the speech that
free men should hear, because there
was.no peace where there is slavery
As I started to say, the story was
told by Rev. Williams In my office, it
was that a party went to the Latan
University, and the singers sang a
song (not like this choir sings, sweet
and soft), but they sang in the beauty
of the Lily, peace was born, and
when they got through, one of the
parties stepped in front and said:
"Now we will sing in the beauty of
the Lily Christ was born across the
sea, and if he died -to make men holy,
let us die to make men freel" (Ap
plause). That was the spirit of the
father of this great girl on the plat
form. He knew that the Almighty
never made any man to stop the
road to bar the road of progress to
any of God's people. He knew as
well as Wendell Phillips knew, that
hatred against the people, prejudice
against the people are more weighty
than the chains of slavery. (Ap
plause, and so knowing it, he spent
his last fifty years, taking the for-

eigner. from Em-ope, the Jew from
Jerusalem, the Irishman from Ire
land, the Negro from the cotton and
tobacco plantations in the South; e
spent fifty years m undertaking to
teach them thaj they were in com
mon brotherhood, and that the Al
mighty looks without prejudice upon
art men, regardless of race, creed or
color, and that God's will made us
brothers, and that Christ is all and in
ns all. (Applause. When a race is
coming into its own its first impulse
to carry them on to their achieve
ment is that they get into the ranks
and march in the battles they must
meet, and to march on and on, and
it largely rests upon the shoulders of
the teachers and philosophers among
that race, but there is another influ
ence besides the teachers and phil
osophers, it is the white man on the
brim of the hill with his face turned
toward you the white man is call
ing you, we are calling you leaders,
calling you and encouraging you to
come on come on, saying to you,
there is a place beside us for you,
there is room here, there is hope here
for you when you reach the .plane
You have lost a friend, the City of
Chicago has lost a great man, the
family lost a great father those
ashes of his, the ashes of a mighty
man, and from the urn of Bishop
Fallows, he will inspire other men
like himself, touch their lips as with
a living coal, prompt them to walk
his ways, and to achieve his destinies
he had done his work well. He sat
at the lowest seat until the Master
spoke, and then he has taken his
place, and while we arc here we hope
and pray, and believe that the light
of the eternal throne is shining upon
the splendid man whose memory we
Tiave got. (Applause).

I fully agree with what Judge Hor
ner has iust stated rctrardiiitr our Be
loved Bishop and his interest in othr
races and creeds. He was further
correct when he stated that it was
impossible to do justice to such n

course of makine a few remarks.

thing to the just, discriminating and
heart) clt words that have been uttered
by my good friends here this after
noon who knew Bishop Fallows so
well and to whom he was a trve
friend and advisor.
Yet I am glad to be here this after
noon as a clergyman of the Reformed
Episcopal Church who knew Bishoi.
Fallows intimately, who loved him
and who was closely associated with
him for manv vcars.
I am also pleased to testify before
you Colored Brethren that Bishon
Fallows loved and was interested in
the welfare of the Colored race
The Reformed Episcopal Church,
over which he presided for so many
years, was one of the first if not the
first to give to the colored man his
full ecclesiastical rights and recogni
tion. He was even proud of the fact that
the best cotton producers in the world
were Reformed Episcopalians.
The Bishop was not only interested
in the liberating of the slaves in 1861
1864 but he had fought the good fight
of faith underthe banner of'the Cross
trying to liberate all men from the
bondage of Sin and Satan through the
blood of Jesus Christ

never refused to become assodafed in

people and served as an impetus to
greater endeavor on their part. His
patriotism and love of human liberty
prompted him to enter the Union
forces, in 1861 and there offer up his
life that all men everywhere might be
free. After giving his services to his
country and seeing Union and Liberty
triumphant, he devoted the remainder
of his useful life in the. cause of
humanity without respect to race,
creed or color. His life was one of
service and devotion to his exalted
ideals, and while modest in bearing, he
had the moral courage to 'stand for
the right, though he stood alone.

DEATH OF MICHAEL J. O'MAL
LEY WHO WAS KNOWN TO
ALL THE PEOPLE OF
On Tuesday last, Michael J. O'Mal
lcy passed away at his late home, 551S
Gladys avenue. He had been con
nected with the Chicago Post Office
for more than 35 years, and during
that time he held many important
positions in it.
Mr. O'Malley was born in Wester
shire, England, in 1861, coming to.
America when a boy of 9. His par
ents first settled in Dunmore, Pa., but
forty-two years ago he came to Chi
cago. He entered the postoffice serv
ice in 1887 and at the time of his death
was assistant superintendent of mails.
Among other positions he held was
that of assistant superintendent of de
liveries. "Mr. O'Malley was one of the most
practical men in the department," said
Assistant Postmaster McGrath, "and
his place will be hard to filL We are
going to miss him here."
In the course of his service Mr.
O'Malley found it necessary to learn
several foreign languages and during
the war he gave valuable service in
translating foreign correspondence.
He was buried from the late resi
dence Friday morning with interment
at Mount Carmel cemetery. A son,
John, and a daughter, Margaret, sur
vive. Mr. O'Malley always conducted
himself like a highly polished gentle
man, and he always commanded the
highest respect of every person con
nected with the Chicago Post Office,
and he had a large circle of warm
friends who mourn his death.
