That the people residing in the 29th,

In 1912 Hon. Michael K. Sheridan,
who has always been highly endorsed
by the leading daily and weekly news
papers, as an honest, successful, clean
cut business man, was elected as a
member of the Board of Assessors
of Cook County from the 31st ward,
and as a member of that board he
lowered the values of property of both
whitp and colored people residing
along Dearbon street. Federal street,
Ada street, and in other sections of
the city where the poorer classes of
people reside, in order to enable
them to pay for their little homes and
the heavy taxes which are continu
ally being imposed upon tlfem, and
Mr. Sheridan raised the real estate
values among the millionaires, so that
they would be forced to stand their
just share of taxation.
Therefore, as Mr. Sheridan has in
the past proven his friendship for the
small taxpayers they should, regard
less of their political affiliations, on
Tuesday, November 7, cheerfully as
sist to elect him as one of the mem

My dear Mr. Taylor:
It is my very great pleasure to be
delegated to the very pleasant duty,
on behalf of Bishop Samuel Fallows'
family and the Vestry and Members
of the St. Paul's" Reformed Episcopal
Church, of acknowledging the very
great honor done to our beloved
Bishop's memory by the colored peo
ple of Chicago in the memorial serv
ices held at the Wendell Phillips High
School on the Sunday afternoon of
September the twenty-fourth. The
very excellent program was a won
derful tribute to our great leader and
we would like to especially mention
the magnifkant part played by your
people in appreciation of their life
long friend. Much as you know of
his wondrous support of his colored
friends, there were many additional
and private expressions of friendship
which throbbed with a fervor that
could only come from a great heart of
love for his fellowman. Your very
fine tribute to his memory is deeply
and lastingly appreciated'and we want
it to be distinctly understood that the
wonderful friendship which he had. for
the colored peaje. especially of Chi
cago, is sustained in the hearts of all
his family and people of St Pauls.
Your address was inspirational and
left nothing to be added to its fine
spirit of eulogy.
I cannot close without giving some
acknowledgement of the magnificant
singing and the various and well
chosen selections were fully in keep
ing with everj part of a great serv
ice. f Yours very truly,
My dear Mr. Taylor:
I wish to add my hearty endorse
ment of alt that Dr. Foster has said
for me and to tell you once more how
grateful wc all arc for the beautiful
meeting yd"u arranged in father's hon
or and how greatly we enjoyed the
program and how fine we thoucht
your tribute was. It is good to have
the full account in the paper so that
wc can send it to our friends. I think
the sound of that wonderful music will
ring through our memory all our days.
Yours very sincerely,
ALICE K. FALLOWS.

My good friends, we are still stand

or within the shadow of the Honored
and the departed dead, and on this
beautiful sabbath afternoon, we are
assembled within these walls, for the
sole purpose of paying our homage or
grief stricken tribute, to the imperish
able memory of the late Rt. Rev:
Bishop Samuel Fallows, who recently
peacefully closed his eyes in death, at
his home in this city. A city in which
he bad labored for more than fifty
years, for its upbuilding and advance

full of the milk of human kindness
for his fellow men. regardless of ttieir
race or their religious convictions.
He was one of the greatest intellectual
giants, that has so far been cast upon
the shores of time; He was one of the
rarest masterpieces or products of an
all wise and merciful God.
His fertile and ponderous brain,
which neer ceased fronj its activities
enabled him to successfully labor in
many lines of endeavor, at the same
time assisting him to become a great
pulpiter, university educator, a patrio
tic soldier, who gallantly fought in the
war of the rebellion, for the freedom
of the slaves and the preservation of
He was an author and newspaper

richly deserves to be written in pure

slaves with one stroke of his mighty
pen; the immortal Frederick Douglass,

the illustrious Charles Sumner, au

Bishop Fallows, who was a human
itarian in the bVoadest sense or mean
ing of that word, from the cradle to
the grave, never faltered in his loyalty
and out spoken friendship for the col
ored race. He presided over the great
peace meeting held at Bethel church
the first part of December 1906.
shortly after the late United States
Senator Benjamin R. Tillman of
South Carolina had delivered a lecture
in this city in which he attempted to
array the better class of white and
colored people against each other. The
golden words of wisdom which fell
from the lips of Bishop Fallows, at
that time restored peace and harmony
between the two races, and out of
respect to his memory, that peace and
harmony must continue to reign su

race, residing . in the great city of
In 1913, Hon. Edward F. Dunne, at
that time Governor of the great state
of Illinois, selected Bishop Fallows,
to serve as chairman of the Illinois
Commission, wMiich enabled the col
ored people in this state to celebrate
their fifty years of freedom in 1915,
which was further "cudenvc of the un
dying friendship of Bishop Fallows,
for the colored race.
It, was our great pleasure to be well
acquainted with him and he possessed
a charming personality, to such an
extent that no one could refrain from
falling in love with him. He always
felt highly pleased to be regarded as
one of the champions and uncompro
mising friends of the race of which
the speaker is an humble member.
In September, 1921, he was in
