A BULL MOOSE COUNTY TJCKET
The Republican newspapers don't seem to be able to crawl out
of the hole they got themselves into andVthere is still the possi
bility that the Bull Moosers will put up a full county ticket.
The same big interests that have controlled both the Republi-i
can and Democratic organizations for years, thought, of course,
they could control the nominations of the new party, too. But they
fell down on the Bull Moose state convention, because the delegates
refused tp take orders from the Tribune.
That's when the Trib got in bad. It had committed itself so
completely to Teddy that it couldn't back down, but ever since
Funk was nominated, the big sheet has been trying to support both
,Teddy and Deneen, while Deneen is wide open for Taft
Now the plute committee of 100, which helps make up Repub
lican tickets, is attempting to boss the Bull Moosers, too the pur
pose being to keep them from nominating a third ticket in Cook,
One of the implied threats is that-if the Bull Moosers nominate
a third county ticket, The Tribune's support will be Withdrawn from
the Progressive party.
But if the delegates to the county convention are as fearlessly'
independent as the delegates to the Progressive state convention
were, they will nominate a straight Progressive county ticket and
let the newspaper bosses and the political bosses, along with the
plute committee of100, go fly their kites in Jackson park.
A Progressive movement bossed by the newspapers and the'
big interests they represent .would be no better than the rotten Re-
publican and Democratic organizations.
If it is a real people's movement the honest voters in both old
parties will flock to it. .
Don't let the newspaper bosses or big business choke the Pro-v
gressive party to death at the very outset. Nominate a third ticket '
in Cook county and don't put a man on it who is on any other county
