    The German American Central Association of Chicago.

    Under this name has been created by the delegates of the German War organizations and German associations a German central organization for Chicago. This is the first unifying accomplishment since the beginning of the war against the Puritans.

    The agitation and platform committees created by the German Central Association are composed of such men that one may expect a speedy solution of the most important matters. The most important matter for the moment is the making up of a liberal platform on which all the adversaries of Puritanism can agree.
