Shower of Hen Fruit


Rev. Baker’s Reception by the Egg Committee—Didn’t Like His Memorial Day Talk.

     Rev. H. H. Baker, of Chino, formerly of this city, delivered a [s]hort oration on Memorial day which promises to go down into the history of that locality. In the course of his remarks Rev. Baker said that McKinley was not the peer of Abraham Lincoln or possessed of the intellectual qualifications of James A. Garfield, and when he left the church after the services he was met with a shower of ancient eggs. Rev. Baker has a married daughter residing in this city.
     Late at night the minister’s effigy wa[s] hung by the neck high up at the corner of D and Seventh street [sic] in Chino and la[b]eled “Anarchist—H. H. Baker.”
