One of the greatest writers of the
old world, some years ago declared
that "The American people, are the
biggest set of foofs on earth" tor
words to the same .effect. There is
a great deal of truth in the above

being color blind and race prejudice
ridden, they have made monkeys of

selves to become the laughing Btock

who were fearful of Ms ability to

out against permitting the fight.
James J. Corbett, known as "gentle
man Jim" who Is the bosom friend of

before the light he assured the wor

at all hours of the day and, night,
while traveling through the streets
and byways' of this city, seeking vic
tims to buy their wares, and often
times rotten fruit and so on, and the
more tfian six thousand peddlers felt
cock sure that through their lawyers,
they would be able to sound the death
knell of this new law which they hate
so much, so they prayed- unto his
Hon. Judge Walker this week to issue
an injunction restraining the city
authorities, from enforcing the ordi
nance, in any manner shape or form.
But Judge Walker, would not hava it
so and In dismissing their bill for

FOSTERING RACE PREJUDICE BY
Jack Johnson, heavyweight cham
pion pugilist of the world, says that
he got a rotten deal when he returned
to his home in Chicago after his vic
tory in the ring at Reno.
Mr. Johnson is exactly right about
it He did get a rotten deal and he
has a perfect Tight .to complain.
Without going Into the merits or de
merits of prize fighting and there Is
much to be said on both sides it
must be admitted by anyone that Mr.
Johnson had accomplished, a feat that
brought him into prominence and
made him much admired by a consid
erable portion of the populace of Chi
cago. - Whether his admirers are misguided
in their adulation of his physical prow
ess is quite beside the question. The
point at issue is that a large number
of oeoole desired to do him honor and.
this being a free country, they ought
to have been permitted to do so
Those who disapprove of Mr. Johnson
hwjmse he is a ougilist or because he
is a Negro, were not askgd to parti
cipate in the welcoming festivities and
there was no disposition to force them
to do so.
Mr. Johnson's fellow Negroes and
Ma frnnta amone the white race had
planned to meet him at tee station
with a band and to organize o paraae
tn ieart him to his home. They were
forbidden by Chief of Police Steward
to do this.
And whv? Because, forsooth, it
might foment race hatred and result
That is absolute piffle and Mr. Stew
ard, if he Is a person ot discernment,
knowB it. The parade was forbidden
because of this very xace prejudice
about which there "was eo much cant
and for no other reason. There was
more to foment race hatred In Chief
Steward's ruling than there would
have been in a. dozen parades in hon
or of Mr. JoTinson "or anyone else.

a majority of the voters In this city
that it would result in anything of
the sort. The Negroes of Chicago are
not anarchists nor, we take it, are
they looking for trouble in which they
would be bound to come out second
Race prejudice is fomented more by
the discriminations of persons who
are themselves prejudiced than it Is
by any demonstration in compliment
Mr. Johnson's admirers are now
talking of running him for alderman
In the Third Ward where he resides,
and where there are some S,000 Ne

reasonable for our discriminating
chief of police to forbid this on the

Mr. Johnson, since his return to Chi
cago, has exhlbted much good sense.
He has done no strutting nor brag
ging, and has been in every way rea
sonably and conservative. This shows
his conservatism and his realization
of the necessity of good order.
As to his political aspirations, the
Bulletin Is not yet ready to pledge
Its support but, should he prove the
only candidate against the Republi

would look very good to us. The Chi
