TROUBLES OF THE NEGRO.
Rct. J. 8. Wood Blafces m Stirring Talk at
Troubles, of the colored peop'e
both in the north and south were
told at Armory hall last evening by
Rev. J. Woods, president of the Illi
nois Afro-American league. The
colored population of Rock Island
and Moline Was' well represented
and there was a sprinkling of white
folka who seemed to be much im
pressed with the speaker.
Key. woods saia it was a case of
battling for citizenship in the couth
and struggling for bread in the north,
and he further remarked that some
of the American people were, not
even satisfied with starving and dis
franchising the dark skinned man,
but wanted to rid the land of him
and his entirely by shipping them
across the seas to Africa. Not much
of it!" shouted Rev. Woods, I'll tell
you right now that I'm going to stay
here whar I is-' Here it is not many
years ago since Senator Butler at
tempted to have the government ap
propriate $10,000 with which to pay
the expense of deporting 8,000 col
ored people back to Africa. Think
of it a little over $1 a head for ship
ping these people 3,000 miles across
the seas. It would take all the ships
in this broad world to carry us over
there and then they would have to
make a couple of trips. Then they
must atop to consider that there are
over 500 colored folks born every
night. Why it's a practical impossi
bility to get us out of this coun
try. "Our mothers' and fathers spent
two nunarea years graomng the
trees and fertilizing the soil of this
great contineut and putting it into
a productive state; they raised the
cotton and the sugar corn and cane;
and it would not be justice to think
that we were going to leave off on
what thev have so ' well done. Not
much; we are going to stay in Amer
ica, of which onr race is a part, and
continue to labor on in the battle of
life -and enjoy its privileges." -.
' UcfM Organisation.
Rev. Woods said it was necessary
for the colored people to organise
and stand shoulder to shoulder and
demand their citizenship rights. He
advocated the formation of a local
branch of the Afro-American Protec
tive League, which has for its ob
jects the elevation ol the negro race,
which Rev. Woods says is entitled to
as much consideration in this coun
try aa any other class of people.
Rev. Woods wound un with come
hot shot for Henry L. Hertz, who Is
striving lor the nomination of state
treasurer on the republican ticket.
He said Mr. Hertz had declared him
self against the black man and he in
turn must retaliate and see to it that
he never gets the important position
which he seeks at the hands of the
Then there was a collection. There
will be a mass meeting of the colored
people at the First Baptist church
Monday evening to form a branch of

The character of Nathaniel Berry,
as drawn by James A. Heme in
"Shore Acres," is one of the memor
able pictures of the stage. It is an ex
quisite piece of workmanship, home
ly iu its outward apparel, but with
a heart of gold. It it were only for
this character alone, "Shore Acres,"
which is announced for production
at the Burtis opera house for Sunday
evening, would deserve the approval
of the most captious critics. Un
