W. S. QUIGLEY FOR
CLERK OF THE PEACE
When you begin to call the roll ot
good Republicans in Wilmington com
mence with the name of Winfield S.
Quigley. Not a Republican for office,
but a stalwart lover of his party and its
principles when there was no office for
such men in sight; when his party in
Delaware was "a forlorn hope" and a
hopeless minority. Steady and calm and
determined he stood by his convictions,
stood up for ths colored man and his
protection in the enjoyment of his citizen
ship, so unfalteringly that his neighbors
noted him as "the black Republican."
To-day he refers to those times with
pride, and in surveying his political
history recalls with exulting satisfaction
his many sacrifices for the cause of his
party and the advancement of the
Negro.
Winfield S. Quigley has in him the
elements of the true man and (he devoted
adherent to principle. He is popular be
cause he is considerate and {martial.
The excitement will have to be great, in
deed, that unbalances him. He moves
in the even tenor of his way, neither
turning to the right nor to the left, until
the end in view is accomplished.
He manifests deep sympathies for the
down trodden, and no deserving man
can appeal to him with a just cause with
out meeting a kindly response. There
is nothing hard in his nature.
His business career has been that of
an honest and reliable man, as all will
tell you who have dealt with him. There
is no hurry nor flurry but promptness,
order and ease in his manner of attend
ing to duties and discharging obligations.
Among the excellent list of Republican
candidates the Negro can find no better
friend than Winfield S. Quigley, and
they all know it just as they know him.
The one safest conclusion of the
present primary contest is that Mr.
Quigley will get very nearly the solid
vote of the Negro for the nomination and
also for his election as Clerk of the
Peace.
In fact Mr. Quigley is a man of large
calibre and fine fibre, and is fitted for
some high and responsible position in
the affairs of the state or nation.
The office of Clerk of the Peace is
of much consequence and in this gentle
man you have a man who can fill àt to
the letter, with credit to himself and
honor and interest to the county. Ask
any well-informed colored man and he
will tell you to vote for Winfield S.
Quigley, because, when elected, his in
fluence will be given unhesitatingly, just
as always, towards whatever is just and
proper, in securing recognition and ad
vancement far the colored man.
In the battle for the political recogni
tion of the Negro in Delaware it is always
safe to count on the friendship of Win
field S. Quigley.

S. H. BAYNARD
FOR REPRESENTATIVE
The candidacy of Mr S. H. Baynard,
for Representative to the Legislature
from the Second Representative District,
comprising the Sixth and Eighth Wards
lying above Eighth street, and all of the
Ninth Ward is a most popular one. He
has always taken an active interest in all
public matters, and , necessarily is well
known to the people of this city.
In the days when the brutal rule of the
tax collectors and the Democratic in
spectors was in vogue; he was in the fore
most rank, demanding justice to each
and all and he was always ready to lend
a helping hand to those trying times.
His public life has been an open
record. As City Councilman, having
represented the Sixth Ward for two
terms, he was always an advocate of
such measures that tended toward mak
ing our city better and greater. In the
long and desperate struggle to purchase
the lands that form our beautiful parks,
he was an earnest advocate and by his
help and influence the land was pur
chased and our people are now enjoying
the blessing of these breathing places.
He also served the people in the
capacity as member of the Board of
Education from the same ward for nine
years and during that time he was chair
man of the building committee that had
charge of the erection of some of the
finest school buildings that our city con
tains. He was always strictly impartial.
He aimed to build the best school that
the means at hand would warrant and to
serve all alike.
We all remember the magnificient
fight he made to improve the How?-d
School and when the Board of Education
approved of the building committee's
plan, he as chairman, gave the work his
personal supet vision and the result was a
school for colored pupils, as fine as any
in our city. His unselfish attention to
these duties make his cand'dacy so
popular.

GEORGE D. KELLEY
FOR COMPTROLLER
Here is one of ov r well-chosen candi
dates. He is what you might call in
political parlance a winner. His popu
larity will add strength to the ticket.
Everything he touches turns to gold of
success. He is full of perseverance and
dispatch. No namby pamby Republi
canism in him. He is not a rough rider
but a speedy one, though. He hits the
nail on the head with a smart rap. Such
men are worth something to the party
and worth a grear deal to our race.
His promise is performance and the
colored man may rely that he will act
for their interest without a profusion of
meaningless promises. It is a delight to
vote and work for the election of men
like Mr. Kelley.
He comes of excellent stock and is an
enthusiastic Republican. His first term
as Comptroller is just closing and he has
discharged the duties of that office in
such an efficient and conscientious man
ner that he is entitled to re-election.
There is scarcely any doubt of his re
election. The business men as well as
all who have dealing with his office -say
that he is perfectly competent and reli
able as a comptroller.
For years Mr. Kelley has been active
in bringing around Republican victories,
His time and iris means to the extent of
his capacity are at the service of his
party. The good Republicans know this
and that accounts for the reason of his
great popularity.
He has made a thorough canvass of
the County of New Castle and is gratified
with the many assurances he is receiving
from every hundred of his success. Mr.
Kelley lives in Middletown and anyone
who goes there and inquires, especially
of the colored people, will find that he
ranks among the grandest friends ot the
Negro in the state. We have letters
from 20 colored men of Middletown tell
ing us to support Geo. D. Kelley for
Comptrollet, because the colored people
of that town, who are acquainted with
him, say that he is all right and a noble
friend of our race.
