Hon. Anton J. Cermak, Democratic
candidate for President of the Board
cf County Commissioners, and for
County Commissioner, has been In the
public eye for many years. He is a
high oc prominent Mason and he Is a
highly honored member of many other'
secret societies. In the past he has
ably served as State Senator, Alder
man of the old. 12th Ward, and at the
present time he is- still representing
that ward in the City CoundL He
was elected Chief Bailiff of the Mu
nicipal Court of Chicago in 1914, and
honorably served the city in that ca
pacity until December 1, 1918. While
serving as Chief Bailiff of the Munic
ipal Court, he selected Ei Franklin
Morrow as one of his Deputy Bailiffs.
Mr. Morrow belonged to the colored
race, and about the middle of January,
1917, he passed away and his earthly
remains were laid to rest in ML Forest
mak sent a very expensive floral oxer
ing and, requested his wife, Mrs. bor
row,' to' call on' him if she needed aay
money or any help in any way, at the
same time stating that her late hsi
band was one, of his best Bailiffs and
that he had always conducted himself
In such a manner that during the four
years that he was connected trith his
office he had won the high respect
of all of his white associates. All of
the above simply shows that Mr. Cer
mak must be classed as one of the
true friends of the colored race, and
that his big: heart knows no race nor
color of any one's skin when they are
in troublepr when the hand of death is
laid upon them.
CoL "James Miller succeeded Hr.
Morrow as deputy bailiff and served
as such until Mr. Cermak served ont
his term as :Chief Bailiff of the Mu
