The Tribune says it is for Gov
ernor Deneen because his admin
istration has been "so efficient."
-The Tribune also has pointed
out various vague and misty in
stances of Deneen's efficiency.
There was a fine instance bf it
in the Desplaines street police
Police Lieut Gallery had round
ed up a lot of employment agency
barkers, who had been trying to
kidnap citizens from the street.

was going to'get" Gallery for in

ministration, this, makes us think
we're going to vote for either
Edward F. Dunne or Frank H.
