A SOUTHERN ROMANCE
Strange Story of the Parentage
and Career of Dr. Charles
H. M. McCallister.
Stranger Than Fiction.
There is only thing needed to round
out tbe story of the career of Dr. Charles
H. McCallister, who has an office at No.
424 South State stieet, and who was for
two terms South Town Clerk, and that
is for him to join his fortunes with some
pretty little woman who has lots of good
common sense and is his equal in point
of abihtv and intelligence. The story
mill then be complete and lull of ro
mance. An illegitimate son of a ic
Southern gentleman, raised like a prince
vet worthy all the money he spent lor
his education and deserving of all the
respect and influence which he com
mands, he has attained an eminence in
the medical profession he richly de
serves. Like every man who attains
success, his life has not been a path of
roses, but he has always been sustained
by an unceasing parental love which has
been reciprocated by the most devoted
filial affection. About two years ago
this father, who seemed to feel that his
son did not have an equal start in the
world with other bovs, died, and his legi
timate heirs now claim all the property,
ALTHOUGH 'AN IKON CLAD WILL,
written by the venerable old man him
self, with a due regard that his son
would get his share of the residue, ex
pressly states he shall have $20,000 of
the propertv, and also that in the event
bis wife leaves no heirs, the son sbalj
have $10,000 of her property, the other
portion to avert to a nephew and niece,
who each are to receive $20,000 of the
Dr. Charles H. McCallister has been a
citizen of Chicago since 1879, and by in
dustry and hard work, coupled with an
upright life, has attained a degree of
success that is not often accomplished
by a j'oung man in nine yeais. Though
he is classed as a Colored citizen, one
would not know it to look at Mm, and
more white blood than African courses in
his veias. Many of his patients are pro
nent people on the. -South Side. No
money has been spared on his educa
tion, and he has been given every adva
tage to equip himself for his profession.
He is a graduate of Jefferson Medical
College, at Philadelphia. Dr, McCallis
ter's native place is Henderson County,
Ky. His father's plantation is located
on the banks of the Ohi river, almost
opposite Newburg, Ind, and Kentucky
has hardly a more lovely resort
OB A PLEASANT LOCALITY.
The home is one of those rich country
seats, surrounded by luxury that was
not wiped from existence by the rava
ges of the war, though the traces of the
terible conflict mark the premises. Dr.
McCalhster's mother was a slave, and
was one of the most pretty quadroon
women that found so much favor in the
passionate eyes of the Southern gentle
men. The Doctor was born March 4,
1849 the legitimate wife of his father
died seveial yeasr previous, leaving one
son and a daughter. Toe quadroon
woman was the housekeeper, and tbe
three children grew up together, each
receiving equal attention with the others
and all three given all the advantages
that wealth and luxury can bestow on
any mortal. The father was not a strong
sympathizer with the Confederacy, and
when the war broke out the legitimate
son went to C&nada to prevent being
drafted. He was there several years,
and died in Cincinnati while on his way
home, about the close of the war. The
daughter was a delicate piece of human
ity, and died while in her 'teens. The
son of the quadroon woman was the on
ly child left to the indulgent father up
on whom he could lavish his fond hopes
and parental desires.
But a romance is connected with the
mother. As stated above, she was very
handsome. She was born somewhere
in Tennessee, and was the slave ofa
man named Derben. Her half-sister
was Dersen's wife. tt
EARLY IN HER LIFB
Dersen moved to New Orleans. The
pretty young girl passed for a Creole,
and learned to speak French, and at
tained many other accomplishments.
When she was 18 years old Dersen ran
away and left his wife and half-sister,
going to Henderson, Ky. The two
women learned where be was and fol
lowed him. He had not lived in Hen
derson long until he wasagain in trouble,
and took another skip by the light of
the moon, but took the two women with
him this time. The Sheriff panned him
and as a sort of compromise the quad
roon was brought back. She was short-

Beside tbe appointment of Gen. Lewis
A. Grant of Minneapolis, Minn., as As
sistant Secretary of War, there is noth
ing politically to relate. Both branches
of congress seem to be in a state of "in-
nocuous desuetude," doing nothing of
piactical good to the people at present,
nor doing anything that may result in
the return of] the Republican party to
control in 1892, We have only to notice
the results in Ohio. Wisconsin and Illin
ois to convince us of the fact that the
administration is not meeting with the
approval that'will result in its continu
ance in power. It may be said that
Democratic success in these places is the
result of local friction and local issues
but it still shows that lukewarmness pre
vades the victors camp, Unless a re
apportionment based on the census of
1890, the passage of a National election
law, or a radical reform in tariff and a
just construction of the Constitution so
that the Negrojwill be counted a citizen

Republicanismjmust bid farewell to all
its former greatness.
A meeting under the auspices of the
Baptist Ministerial Conference was held
at the 5th Baptist church on Vermont
ave., Mondav night April 7. The purpose
of the meeting Wa|)o endorse the bill H.
R. 3852 drafted by Judge Albion, W.
Tourgee and offered by Congressman
.Kelley of Kansas relative to Federal aid
to public schools. Congressman Kelley
addressed the meeting, also Revs Mitch
ell, Lee, Phillins^ Brooks, and others.
At present there' are two billsbefore
the legislative assembly looking toward
procuring Federal aid to public schools,
namely Senator Morrill's bill S. 3256,
and Congressman Kelley's bill H. R.
J852. The provisions of the first are
closely related to the existing legislation
in regard to money accruing from sale
of public lands to'go to aid of school
funds, and the provisions of the second
in conferring on the Commissioner of
Education almost unlimited power in
disposal of money appropriated, make
them both objectionable to the Negio.
What aid may come to the Negro in the
unequal fight against prejudice and
power must be from his own energy and
intellectual development. Political par
ties will not, dare not solve the problem
and the South cares not to do it.
Easter was observed by appropriate
services throughout the city. Floral dec
orations in the churches were beautiful
but not ostentatious, lilies, violets, pas
sion flowers and crocuses were most con
spicuous. The solemnity and joyousness
of the occasion was only surpassed by
the gorgeousness of the apparel of the
participants in the exercises at various
churches. With Easter comes the open
ing of spring styles and from the languid
dudish office clerk to the merest errand
boy, from the ladies of the palace to the
goddess de cuisine there is a bursting
into life as grand as that of the trans
formation of the chrysalis into the gaudy
butterfly. From now on until the com
