World’s Fair

•  The negroes have threatened to boycott the World’s Fair if the Federal Election bill is not passed.  They also                   urge the appointment of some colored man as a member of the Cabinet.

•  A crowd of disappointed negroes, who had been engaged to go to Chicago to work for the World’s Fair, were                very belligerent recently because there was no one at the Bal. & Ohio station in Washington to secure them                   tickets for their trip.

•  Negroes now demand that a colored manager be appointed for the World’s Fair.
