It is interesting that Schlichter was a writing for the Item. This was, back in the day, Thomas Fitzgerald's paper. He was a radical Republican, when that meant being on the side of the angels, and arranged the famous 1867 Pythians-Olympics match. By the early 20th century the paper was run by his sons. Apparently they continued his politics.
