Illinois Staats-Zeitung -- September 16, 1874A Mixed Assembly.
Tax inspector and mailman Francis Rodmann convoked yesterday a meeting in the restaurant of Fritz Frillmann, in order to organize the Republican Party of the North side.
Mr. Barker, candidate for the legislature, described the sufferings of the negro in the south.
Rodman as next speaker said he would like to talk about a man who claims to be a friend of the laboring class, but who isn't, namely A. C. Hesing. A man who drives every Sunday to Lincoln park in a stolen coach..... This was the end of Rodmann's speech and of the meeting. The majority of the assembly cried out: "You rascal, no calumny. Every one knows that A. C. Hesing's coach is a gift."
During the ensuing confusion the meeting was adjourned.
