IGNORES - THREATS AND
' '. SPEAKS BOLDLY AND
Denounces Race Equality and Says
"To Hell With Suoh Law"
Condemns Roosevelt for
Chicago, Nov. .27. The efforts of
I the colored citizens of Chicago to
.prevent United States Senator Ben
'jamin R. Tillman from delivering
an aaaress nere tonignt In Or
chestra Hall, because of the posi
tion he has assumed toward the ne
gro race, were unsuccessful. When
the South Carolina senator arrivad
in Cnicagb early in the afternoon,
he was told of threats of injanction
proceed ings to preveo t his appear
ing on ihe speaker's platform to
night and of a money consideration
that had been offered if be would
cancel bis engagement, but Mr.
Tillman' declared that it did not
make any difference to him what
the colored people of Chicago - did,
he waB going to fill his engagement
tonight, and he kept his word.
Until he leaves for Fond du Lac,
Wis.,' tomorrow, Mr Tillman will
be guarded by police and , private
detectives. This is in accordance
with au order issued by Mayor Ed-
war.4 F. Dunne who was scheduled
to preside at, tonight's meetitig, but
who refused to do so , after a com
mittee of colored oitizens bad visited
him a few days ago and offered
strenuous objections to Mr. Till
man's appearance on the speaker's
Mr. Tillman pave bis address
protected by 40 detectives under
personal command , cf Assistant
Chief of Police Scbiiettler. In an
ticipation of trouble a numberof
policemen wers kept in nearby sta
tions in reserve, but they were not
called fir: Six cblored policemen
mingled with the crowd of blacks
add whites that blocked the street
in front of the ball, to arrest any
one that made a disturbance. '
In tie audience were many color
ed people, but, they listened to Mr.
Tillman's remarks good naturedly
and, although he was interrupted
many times by those who wished to
ask questions, the meeting passed off
In leading up to his address,
"Shall the United States " Annex
Caba?" Mr. Tillman took occasion
to criticise the Mayor's tction in re
fusing to preside at tbe meeting;
He said: - ' " .
"I have been told that I have
been eDubbed by the mayor of this
city,-' '-I never saw Mr. Dunne in
mv life. .1 did not ask him to be
here tonight to introduce me to this
audience, nor did I ask any one else
to do so. If any one has been snub
bed, it is these gracious ladies, who
planned this meeting to' secure
money for the Chicago- Union Hos
pital, who requested Mayor Dunne,
the creature ot a political hour, to
come forward and add his might.
"I have been advertised 1 to dis
cuss the auuexatiori of Cuba, but
irv view of the fact that I could .not
discuss this subject without discuss-
ing. the iace question, I am going to
g4 6.t tbe ruatter with hammer, and
tongs, straightforward like a man.
Tbefore, I sbal discuss the race
problem pure and simple, from the
American standpoint and not from
the Cuban standpoint. Owing to
my experience with the question
and tbe diligent study I have made
of it, I believe I am "better qualified
to discuss this question than any
other man in America. -1 am go
ing to base my appeal on lacts not
L While discussing the 15th amend
ment to the Constitution, wbich,
be declared, gave tbe negro every
rigM that a white man had, be was
interrupted several times by one of
his listeners, who kept asking:
i "How about Kentucky?"
Finally Mr. Tillman seemed to loee
his temper and exclaimed:
"O, shut your mouth. You don't
kcow the ABC of 'hia thing yet.
I forgot 40 years ago more than you
ever Knew. , , , . : ,
".You make up your minds that
equality before the law, : which , the
15th: amendment guarantees, is
right and should be enforced, -notwithstanding
its. results. If . this
law(was enforced, it wcullre-ult in
two states at least 'being dominated
absolutely by; negrceat , while four
other states would be bo near being
governed by the negro, that there
would practically be an equal di
vision of offices."
: "How about the law? the law?
To hell with such law."
- After telling in detail how the
negro is prevented from casting his
ballot in the South, Mr. Tillman
"Now as a general illustration of
the injustice that is sometimes done,
President Roosevelt discharged three
companies of colored soldiers with
out a court-martial, and, in doing
this, he punished innocent men for
the crime of a few. In doing this
he transcended the authority of the
law, and he ought not to have done
it." .. . . , , ., .
Mr.. Tillman arrived . over the
Chicago, Milwaukee and St. . Paul
road. He was met at the depot by
a committee of women who have in
charge the interests of the hospital
in behalf of which the senator is to
lecture. Mrs. Adele Keeler, the
head of tbe committee, after greet
ing tbe Benator said:
-. "We hope, Senator, that you will
not say anything that will belikely
to stir up trouble."
, The eenator replied:
-"Mrs. Keeler, I think I will say
just about what I feel like saying
in my lecture.'
No other statement was made by
the senator, who was immediately
driven to his hotel. :
About a dozen police officers in
uniform and a'numbsr of others in
plain clothes were in the depot, but
there was no demonstration of any
kind, nor were there any negroes
in or about the depot.
i After visiting his hotel, Mr. Till
man was invited ; by a number of
friends to attend a luncheon at tbe
Iroquois Club. , While there he
made a short address, in which be
said: : : v -
"I have no desire to made trouble,
and did not suppose that my com
ing here would cause a hullabaloo.
I am surprised tbat there has been
any effori to stop my lector', espe
cially in the North. It is also sur
priirg that a number of citizens
should claim that a senator of the
United States has ho right to speak.
That is the kind of intolerance tbat
brought on the civil war. In this
case, however, the interference is
north of the Mason and ' Dixon line
and by tbe colored people.

Incidents in Early His
tory of Case Recalled.
Grants Pass, Or., Nov. 28. Un
less strenuous objections are made
by Prosecuting Attorney Reames,
it is quite likely tbat the case of
Jasper Jennings for the murder o(
his father will be dropped. A pe
tition asking that young Jennings
be allowed his liberty and that the
case be stricken from the. docket of
the circuit court is being prepared
and will be circulated in this city
and county. It is believed a second
trial will be merely an unnecessary
expense to the county,, as the case
of tbe state against Jennings, as it
now stands, seems weakened to
such a degree as to make a verdict,
other than acquittal, - practically
impossible. ; ."? :
Jasper and bis sister . Dora : were
jointly iodicted for murdering their
father at Granite Hill. Jasper was
tried first, and because he attempt
ed to throw the blame on his sister,
was convicted as a principal, though
tbe grounds of his conviction were
based largely on his being an acces
sory, and it was on these grounds
that the jury returned its verdict.
Dora was tried second and was ac
quitted. Her case was fairly pre
sented and no evidence of the state
was excluded; for this reason her
acquittal leaves Jasper in the situ
ation of a presumptive accessory
with no principal. Under these con
ditions, eo attorneys state, so there
is really no rase against the boy,
the decision of the supreme court
being almost equivalent to allowing
him bis liberty. '
Every particle and scrap of evi
dence presented was circumstantial
and nothing coniiutive "was given
bis piuo iuai cituoi jacpoi us ma
sister bad anything to do with the
murder of their father, though the
girl was in the same room in which
the old man was killed, and Jas
per's rifle having been found in the
brubb where it was hid after the
crime, seemed to indicate that it
was his gun that fired the fatal
Jasper, Dora and their younger
sister and brothers stick to the first
story told by them that they know
absolutely nothing about tbe crime
further than that they4 found their
father dead in bed the ' morning af
ter he was killed. Jaeper says be
was not around the bouse at all
that night, aod the other children,
though up till ablate hour entertain
ing visitors, saw tbeir father retire,
but h-srri un ucusual sound alter
