Orts Lucu will get 7.1 per cent of the German vote of Chicago Ami Don t you forget it the German american arc incensed at the outrageous treat sent accorded the Boer Resolution in the tepid clean state convention which was dominated by Ileau Belleau of Floc i older. The germans Invar Liberty throughout the world and naturally resent the no thou of the Mckinley administration in turning Down the representatives of the struggling Boer republics la South Africa. A Little episode which helped to in la ecu proceedings it the recent Republican convention in la Corla was not mentioned in the newspaper reports of Tom convention but will Bear description now la View of the visit of the Boer Euvoy to tile went. It serves very Well to illustrate the real attitude of the Mckinley administration toward the Quot our sister republics Quot n South Africa nud also toward their exulting foe England. Some men who do not quite compre lieu the close no Liucc of the administration to great Britain attempted to meet Public sentiment by having adopted a Resolution of sympathy for the Boers. The Resolution it is reported. Was written by col. John f. Fin cry editor of the citizen a Irish paper published la Chleno hut having a a Loual reputation. Col. Flo try was the Glrst promote Orion the Irish ambulance corps that went to South Africa Ami took up armed service with the Boers. Col. Fleurty s resolutions were introduced into the committee of resolutions by w. Ii. Curran. The chairman of that committee was congressman a. .1. Hopkins a Republican of a Loual Rcpt Matlou. The resolutions received no attention la the committee. Curran himself expressed it thus Quot when i shot thut Resolution into the faces of them Guys they nearly dropped dead. Hopkins tried to choke me Down hut 1 made them Voto. The vote was 21 to 1 against tho resolutions. I was the falling thus to get the resolutions out of the com a Iitto on the platform Miles Kehoe the Well known Justice of the peace of Chicago sprung them of the Couveau thou. The chairman not know aug what or Kohoot wanted gave him the door. Hopkins was standing of tho platform at the time with a typewritten report of his committee la his hand lie know what Kehoe a noted Aud whispered to the chairman urge us that be to Deled the Moor. It was too late for Kehoe was Well tin Ler Way and rend ids resolutions disregarding nil interruptions. Tho Glrst word of comment upon the Resolution which Chino from this administration arose from congressman Cannon s delegation from the twelfth congressional District where a Delegate shouted at tho top of his lungs Quot god Dan tho dutch. What in he i have they got to do with us a this seemed to lie the signal for tho convention instantly broke into turmoil and disorder nud there were hisses nud jeers and cries of Quot shut up Kehoe Quot a throw him out Quot Ami other indications that the convention As a whole was absolutely antagonistic to the resolutions and their mover. Points of order were raised to prevent discussion of them. Lawrence v. Sherman speaker or the lower House of tho Illinois legislature and Martin b. Madden candidate for c ill Tod states senator and part of the regular Republican machine jolted la the affair to suppress discussion. Kehoe manfully fought for recognition. Ills Strong voice Rose above the Stream of protest crying. A you must hear teds Resolution. Every irishman Ami German la this state demands that you should hear it. I have the Moor and i will not he howled Down. You can t do it a Henry l. Hertz tho danish machine politician of Chleno. Inter posed to secure order saying Quot listen to the Man. Give him n Chance Aud then you Gnu squelch him Ulm i Resolution meanwhile enraged delegates on the Moor actually tried to drag the mover of the Boer Resolution away from his place by physical Force. When order was restored or Madden was la the chair nud the Resolution again were forced upon the attention of the convention. The same outcry arose hut Kehoe fought for recognition. I. I. Wolfe one of the most prominent germans of Central Illinois and the editor of a German paper rushed Down the Center aisle Ami cried Quot or. Madden or. Madden for god s Sake pass those resolutions. To was a ill a fool for introducing them but now they must he passed. If you Don t it will Cost 100,000 German Republican despite however ii vigorous Appeal the Resolution were dually Laid on the table by a almost vote i the convention. Tho germans of Chicago will show by their votes for Ortseifen How they Feci on this matter. Us Kikku Abe always Strong big Tux payer and citizen Oiel suit be Hosp act them. To fearful Uro the of tho effect of Adam Ortseifen a nomination for governor that they Aro doing everything in their Power to decry it Ulm to Stop it. They Are spreading the report that he is weak with tho people because he is a Brewer. A Leo when did the Brewers become Quot weak with the people Quot they have always rim Abend of their ticket in Cook county. In 1875, when Auto c. Ileal no was tho oui Luke for county treasurer of the Power fill opposition party la Cook county the republicans cast around to mud a Brewer to nominate against him. They Murod that no one hut a Brewer could Bent hcs lug. So they c. Zinek a Brewer and elected him. Too. He beat or. Hcs lug to a stand still. And in 1870, when the democrats nominated the senior Carter ii. Harrison for mayor for the most time they East about for a Brewer to run on the to Leet with him for City treasurer. They found him Lump. William c. Help and elected him. Too. Or. Help ran Uli Ead of his to Leet at that. In 1881. Or. Rudolph Brand the Brewer was elected City treasurer of tho ticket with or. Harrlson. In 1882 or. Help the Brewer was elected county treasurer. I u 1880 or. Hoe sing it Brewer was elected City treasurer. La 1887 the it publicans elected or. Plautz. A Brewer. City treasurer. In 18u7 the democrats elected or. Hummel a Brewer City treasurer. La 1800 the democrats elected or. Otoe Lucu a Brewer City treasurer. Does that look a if Brewers were weak with the people a. Not much. To far from Clug a weak with the people a the Brewers Are tho leading citizens la every country town where there is a brewery. Fifty two Illinois cities Aud towns have Hud Brewers for mayors Sluce 1800. Is that n sign of unpopularity on the go Nunry it by earning the to bunks of the Community it urge by exposing put up Job nor attempts it bribery Cin deter Tai Piper from it Effort to ri4 Public office of Smirk influence. Unjust War taxes an 1hhuk. Ort Nelfe will get Eliot sunds of extra votes on thut line alone. Representing As be does one of the great Jimlu Hrics of the state which have suffered greatly from the excessive War tax or. Orts Lucu will bring a iss tto into the wit it him which will Cost the Republican party thousands of votes. The Republican platform is Allcut upon the subject of War taxes. Tint tho War taxes themselves Are not silent. They ure piling Tai at such u rate that Ait unnecessary surplus of ,<mk>, has been created in the Federal Treasury through them. The War taxes Are not ouly a Burden to tho brewing Industry but to thousands of other industries la the state. Ortseifen election would be it rebuke to unjust taxation. To used Are the villainous Sharks or Chicago to browbeating policemen to used Are the Slimy usurers to working the Qulille office to to War own advantage to used Are the Smike like so Loeks to Isis lug the Justice courts so used arc the oppressors of the poor to dodging their taxes to used Are the loan artists to a ill Xung up Quot matters with people who Cross their path. That they imagine they Gnu buy the Eagle from the path of duty it has Laid it it it for itself. Certain Sharks have made overtures in ills direction and have gone so far As to write letter to persons connected with the Eagle asking them to Callou the Sharks to Quot arrange no attention has lieu paid to any of these except to preserve them. The Sharks might just As Well understand now As at any other time thut tho Eagle is opposed to the use of Public of Lees by them for the Purisma of extorting Money from Public employee. It is opposed to All Public of Iclal who permit or who will Hgt Ruilt the use of their offices for sue i a nefarious Pun Toso. D will continue to sex Ste shark and official who Combine to use the Public service for this purpose. And it will cout Luucy the Good work until the shark ure driven from the City Hull Ami court House. In oils work the Eagle has the support off the test people of Chicago. No overtures of any nature from the Sharks will arouse any other feeling Gian contempt from the Eagle Aud its attache. The duty of the Engle la the premise is n Public Oue. And it will he performed to the satisfaction of the Public a not of the Sharks. The Issue that will defeat Marcus Kavai Stugh for re election As judge i it s appointment of carpet Bagger John a.
