TROUBLE FOR THE-TRIB.
It's really funny to watch The
.Tribune squirm down at the. bot
tom of the cute little hole it dug
Realizing that Taft was a dead
one, the Trib wanted to save De
neen. So it .started to boost Ted
'dy and the Bull Moose move
ment. Its "game there was. to get
the Republican state ticket on the
Teddy ticket as well as on the
Taft ticket, and thus all the regu

Progressive Republicans to vote
for the Republican state ticket.
But the Progressives didn't
obey Tribune orders. Instead"
they put up a third state ticket,

Trib had gone so far in its roast
.of Taft's stealing the national
nomination that it couldn't get
back on he Taft side of the fence.
It had to go through with-Teddy.
Then it tried to support Teddy ,
on the Bull Moose ticket and De
neen on the Taft ticket, and

:for fear a Bull Moose county
jticket will be put in the field
which would mean that the news
paper bossesowpuld lose their
grip on Cook county.
In the meantime the Deneen
administration is trying to find a
way fo keep the Progressives
from being aHow,ed to -vote at alb
And the newspaper bosses would
sacrifice Teddy if they could save

Trib, the News, the Record-Herald
or the Inter-Ocean demandr

ives, do you?
Funny to see the cute little
newspaper bosses squirm, isn't -it?
