Captain Hannibal C. Carter, 3436 Dearborn street, passed away Tuesday morning, May 31st. His funeral services were held Friday morning at St. Monica. Captain Carter achieved national prominence during the Reconstruction period in the South, he was a member of the legislature of Mississippi and later on secretary of state. He came to Chicago in 1880, as a General Grant delegate to the Republican National Convention, and remained true to him until he went down to defeat on the three hundred and sixth ballot, and from that time to his death he resided in this city. With all his faults Captain Hannibal C. Carter was a lover of his race. May his weary soul rest in peace.
