John F. Devine, Re-elected Clerk of the Probate Court
The national or general election,
held on the past Tuesday, has passed
into history and with few exceptions
whatever the result has been that
there is no way on earth to change
it It does seem, however, that the
great mass of the people throughout
the United States are not well
pleased with the way that President
Harding continues to conduct the af
fairs of this mighty nation at Wash
ington, D. C; for, in many of the
states which had. been figured on as
being solidly Republican, the great
bulk of the voters deserted the ranks
of the Republican party and fell in
line with the Democrats, causing five
or six Republican United States Sena
tors to go down to defeat.
Here in this great city of Chicago
deeply interested in then- own local)
political affairs than what they have
been interested in national politics,
which is eminently right or proper,
for several weeks prior to the elec
tion hundreds of people wanted to
know from us, how was the election
going and in each and every in
stance we would respond that "owing
to our limited observation and never
bring accused of knowing very much,
that in our humble opinion that a
mixed ticket would win out at the I
polls in this city and county on Tues
day, Nov. 7." Then some of the very
vise gentlemen, both white and col
ored, would flare up, run their hands
tn their h'p pockets and pull out a roll
of money big enough to choke a
horse or an ox, and shout in a loud
voice- "1 will bet you $10& to $50 that
you do not know what you are talk
ing about. You should have sense
enough to know that every candidate
on the Democratic or the Republican
ticket will be elected." And we would
always softly respond that we never
bet and that time would soon tell
whether or not our judgment was
Rood or bad.
It is well indeed that our predic
t ons came true, for if either the
1'cmocrats or the Republicans would
lave elected every candidate on
t' eir ticket they would soon become
drunk with -so much power that no
one would be able to enter the Gty
Hall or the County Building unless
they were the abject political slaves
of the big bosses of the political party
controlling the political affairs in this
city and county. ,

THE COLORED DEMOCRATS ON THE
J. WILLIE WILKINS OF TEXAS HAS
TURNED DEMOCRAT. HE WAS
BORN A REPUBLICAN.
The following article is from the
Cincinnati (Ohio) Enquirer, and it
simply shows that the colored people
in certain sections of the country are
fast waking up along political lines.
That great journal recently contained
the following comment on the demon
stration by colored jroters, among
whom was J. Willie Wilkins, late of
Houston, Texas, better known as
"Pcewee," was one. says in boldface
The Enquirer went on to state:
"What -is declared to have been one
of the largest and most unusual dem
onstrations ofKegro voters in the
history of Cincinnati was the parade
and mass meeting last night of Ne
groes of the West End, who have
pledged themselves to vote the demo
cratic ticket and who are particularly
partial to Cal Crim, Democratic can
didate for sheriff.
"It was estimated that approximate
ly 5,000 Negroes participated in the
demonstration. There were three
brass bands in the procession, the line
of march of which covered the terri
tory most thickly populated by Ne
groes. So inadequate in size was
Liberty Hall, 330 George street, where
the Democratic meeting was staged,
that the overflow meeting was the
"Banners labeled 'Down With Hy
nicka" and 'Hynicka's Reign Is
Over were carried through the streets
and greeted with cheers.
"It was reported that the disposition
of the Negroes toward the Democrat
ic ticket is racial in that it is not
prompted by money or expectation of
material benefit to individuals or
"The grand marshal of the parade
was Dr. E. D. Colley, and his as
sistant was J. Willie Wilkins. The
chairman of the indoor meetings was
William Ware of the Universal Ne
gro Improvement Association, and at
the overflow meeting the chairman
was J. Willie Wilkins. Speakers at
the meetings were Cal Crim, Jimil
Schlesinger, Rev. J. Franklin Walker,
W. H. Hill. J. T. Crucher, Rev. Wil
liam Hill, Miss Lizzie Jordan, Mrs.
M. Ramey, I. Tadlock, L. Evans.
John R. Quane, Democratic candidate
for prosecuting attorney, and repre
sentatives of the Democratic judicial
candidates Stanley Matthews and T.
COLORED ROMAN CATHOLIC
CHURCH IS DEDICATED
Washington Archbishop Curley of
Baltimore presided at the dedication
of the Church of the Redeemer for
Colored Catholics at New York ave
nue near New Jersey avenue last Sun
day. The new building will accommo
date 700 persons and Rev. Frank J. To
bin, white, the pastor, expects to build
up a membership of 1300, drawing
chiefly from St. Aloysius parish, which
is also white.
This is the last church to be estab
lished by the late Cardinal Gibbous,
D. Price, for the supreme court, and
Stanley Shaffer for the court of ap-.
"The dominant note of the speeches
was that the Republican party in
Hamilton County had proved delin
quent to the Negro race and that its
.true interests artjiowwitItJthe Demc
cratic ticket. This was coupled with
a pledge on the part of the law-abiding
element that dishonest voters
would be' kept from the polls."
Referring to the same meeting the
Commercial Tribune says:
"A parade, consisting of four brass
bands and several thousand enthusi
astic Negroes, marched last night to
Liberty Hall, 330 George street, where
a Democratic Negro rally was held.
"The number of Negroes who ral
lied around the Democratic standard
was estimated by various spectators
at 5,000 to 7,000. At an overflow
meeting, which was held at Central
avenue and George street, the crowd
extended beyond hearing distance of
"Among the speakers who urged the
Negroes to overthrow the Republican
organization and vote the Democratic
ticket were: Cal Crim, candidate for
sheriff; Sidney G. Strieker and John
R. Quane, congressional candidates;
Edward C. Hauer, candidate for
county prosecutor; Edward F. Peters,
chairman of the Democratic campaign
committee; A. E. Varley, Dr. J.
Franklin Walker, Dr. R. H. Hill, Dr.
E. D. Colley. Dr. W. T. Weaver, J. C

Lizzie Jordan, Mrs. M. Ramey and I.
I. Tadlock. William T. Ware, presi
dent of the Negro Improvement As
In many other parts of the country
the colored people on election day
were up in arms against the leaders of "
the Republican party and many of
them voted against the Republican
candidates because the United States
Senate utterly refused to pass the
Dyer Anti-Lynching Bill prior to the
late election and on account of the
cowardice on the part of many of the
Republican Senators. They miss
Congressman Robertson of Okla
homa, who fell by the wayside, at the
very time that they sadly needed the
votes of the colored people in their re
spective states to aid them to pull
through at the polls. Editor.
