ARTHUR J SMITH VOL B NO 17 PA OCTOBER WOODARD THE American Clothier OF 1776 IWO CENTS Citizens of Chicago Express Sympathy For Cubans SPAIN'S DESPOTISM DENOUNCED WILL the Historic Declaration of Revolutionary With Great Britain Holds Good In Their Methods Regarded M Savage and October 2 OPEN TO THE LADIES OF WARREN AND REN COUNTY HIS NEW AND MAMMOTH Cloak Caoe and TOGETHER WITH THE LARGEST LINE OF Ready Made Ladies SUITS EVER SHOWN IN THE CITY EVERYTHING Everything Grand Everything FULL ORCHESTRA IN AT- TENDANCE Afternoon and Evening EVERYBODY INVITEE Welcome CHICAGO Oct much of the population of Chicago an could find en- trance to the auditoriums of Central Music hall and the Y M C A ings shouted itself hoarse in tion of a series of resolutions in which the United States government is asked to recognize the Cubans as belligerents Such genuine enthusiasm has seldom been witnessed in this city and on no occasion were words spoken by men more full of the hearts and soul of the speakers Mayor George B Swift pre- sided at the main meeting in Central Music hall while Judge William A was chairman of the overflow meeting in the Association building Seventy-five vice presidents occupied seats on the platforms They were leading business men of the city quent speeches were made and their ringing words brought forth cheer upon cheer Enthusiasm prevailed to a fevei heat and the following was passed We citizens of Chicago gathered to express our deep sympathy with the Cubans in their brave struggle to secure for themselves and their condition the blessings of independence liberty and self-government present the We hold these truths to be self dent that all men are created equal that they are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights among these are life liberty and the pursuit of to secure these rights governments are instituted among men deriving their just powers from the governed That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it and to institute a new government laying its tions on such principles and organizing its powers in such form as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness Prudence indeed will dictate that governments long should not be light and transient causes and accordingly all experience has shown that mankind is more disposed to suffer evils as sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed But when a long train of abuses and usurpations suing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism it is their right it is their duty to throw off such ment and provide new guards for their future security This historic declaration made by the founders of our republic on July 4 1776 was true then and is true today For many unhappy years the Cubans have been most oppressed and cruelly burdened until the yoke of Spanish rule has become If the fathers of American ence were justified in casting off the oppressive dominion of Great Britain the Cuban patriots of today have far greater justification for their attempt to overthrow the tormenting ishing heartless tyranny of the ish government We desire publicly to express our indignation that in this year 1895 the spectacle is presented of shiploads of soldiers sent miles across the ocean to America the laud of the to shoot down in cold blood a ageous people who simply desire to ern themselves Our indignation is further aroused at the unspeakable cruelty of the towards the Cubans in this gle Death seems to be the penalty meted out to all Cubans captured under arms and even those furnishing medicines to the so-called rebels are to be ruthlessly shot We are glad to notice that the course of the Cubans appears to be more humane and we take this of congratulating them upon the remarkable progress they have made in spite of the terrible odds against them We believe it to be the privilege and duty of the United States ment to recognize the rights of the Cuban revolutionists as belligerents as soon as practicable on so re- quested by competent Cuban authority in accordance with international law Such action of our government we deem to the Cubans and to the cause of uni- versal liberty While disavowing all bitterness of feeling on our part toward the people of we nevertheless believe that it is our duty and privilege at this time as citizens of this free republic thus to express our with oar Cuban neighbors living upon an island which nature has made a para- dise but the cruel methods of the Spanish government have done much to despoil We respectfully urge our fellow citizens throughout this country to assemble in to diffuse information and thus arouse or rather deepen the sympathy of people with the Cubans in their heroic attempt to cast off the yoke of oppression and to independence aud dom which are the great highways to happiness and prosperity We also urge the press and the ftt and also with voice land prayer to continue their help to the right eona flause of the men who are bravely ing for home and native land We respectfully but urgently peal to the citizens of all the republics in the three Americas to give emphatic expression to their sympathy with these struggling people who are such a gallant fight for that ence from the European rule which the other nations of the New World hare already secured Be it farther Resolved Thai the organization which arranged for gathering be requested
