GREEKS TO VOTE FOR M'KINLEY.
Enthusiastic Meeting Held at Halsted
Street and Blue Island Avenue -
Hebrews and Bohemians.
Almost the entire Chicago colony of Greek voters turned out yesterday afternoon to listen to Republican speakers at the headquarters of the Greek-American Republican club, Halsted street and Blue Island avenue. The meeting was the most enthusiastic of those held in the vicinity during the campaign. Dr. A. J. Sanichas was chairman. Among the speakers were Henry C. Beltler, Thomas N. Doutney, Demetrius Manusos, Peter Lambros and John Palamaris. From the enthusiasm shown at the meeting and the large membership of the newly-organized Greek-American Republican club the leaders gather that the entire Greek vote will be cast for McKinley.
Laboring men to the number of 4,000 listened to Republican argument in a tent meeting held at Twentieth and May streets in the afternoon. Judge Hanecy, Captain W. D. Mills, R. A Kelly of New York, W. E. Kerr, J. H Payne, and W. T. Dunne spoke. Joseph Sindelar and Joseph Jurka addressed the meeting in Bohemian.
