EIGHTH GREAT RECEPTION.
Chicago, III., Feb. 20. t'ho most gi
gantic nnd wonderful public demon
stration ever held In tho city of Chi
cago, took place Monday when the
370th infantry, tho old Eighth Illinois,
was welcomed home by the populace.
It Is not tho word of an enthused in
dividual patriot, but tho published ex
pression of every dally newspaper In
Chicago, and all leading authorities,
that never has Chicago seen anything
to equal the Monday demonstration.
It was more than an event, It marks
an epoch, and It is in this light that
the story of tho occasion is treated.
Never have the Chicago daily news
papers given so much space In news,
illustrations and editorials to anything
In which the Negro was connected.
Great full-page wide headlines, full
page Illustrations and column editori
als announced and welcomed the dusky
heroes who achieved undying fame on
tha world battle fields of France.
Let It be thorouglfly understood that
It was not a Race event. It was a truly
Chicago event In all that the word
Implies, and Us effect will bo felt
throughout the nation. More, than
500,000 people viewed the parade In
which the conquering heroes marched
through the principal thoroughfares of
Chicago s famous loop business dis

people showed without doubt that Chi
cago, with Its great cosmpolltan popu
lation, Is the climax American city
of true democracy and justice.
There was speech making by Mayor
Thompson, Col. Thomas Roberts, Col.
Otis Duncan and others, and the one
fact Impressed on all was this: The
day has come when tho door of op
portunity in the United States is
opened at all hazards.
The men were attired in full mili
tary equipment, with steel helmets,
rifles, cartridge belts, and the para
phernalla with which they chased the
Germans back across the Hlndenberg
line. They are the first soldiers out
of Chicago who actually participated
in the fighting, to return as a unit.
Looking to the future, after the men
have been demobilized, tho fighting
men have returned home with the
same grim determination to enter Into
civic life that they used in chasing the
Huns back Into their own country.
Capt. Lewis El Johnson, an attorney In
civil life and the man who built the
first great Negro Y. M. C. A. in this
country at Washington, expressed the
sentiment of the men when he said
"Wo intend to get Into political and
civic affairs, and we are determined to
be heard. We sacrificed that democ
racy might be made safe, and wo are
Elng to have some say in seeing how
thfl game is carried on at home."
Lieut. Col. Duncan, the man of whom
It .was said: "He didn't have sense
enough to know when to stop fight
ing," stated that the men are all glad
to egt home, and are very serious in
their desire to enter Into civil life,
now that the fighting is over, and the
days of peace are at hand. Colonel
Duncan also said that he will do all ho
personally can to keep in touch with
the men of his regiment and encourage
There is active effort being carried
out In Chicago, in an organized way,
to give employment to everyone of the
Negro soldiers returning home.
