THAT COMMITTEE OF ONE HUNDRED
The Bull'Mopse better look out for that plute Republican,
committee of 100. It wants to tighten its grip on the taxing machin--,
e.ry of Cook county, and to do that it would like to hitch its pet can-,
didates for-county offices onto the Bull Moose band wagon.
It was never intended that Cook county, or Chicago either,
should be run by any s"elf-selected committee of 100.' The intention
was that the city and county should be run by the people for their
, But for a'long time Boss Vic Lawson and his gang of plutes
have been' running the Republican end of the political, game; ex
pecting Andy Lawrence to look 'after the Democratic end of it.
Then the bi-partisan bunch couldn't lose. ' " .
It is very, convenient to be able to haVe a strong pull with the
tax officials; for then a boss like Lawson can have his $1,000,000
home put on the tax duplicate at a valuation of $1,000 and pay only
$17.32 taxes a year. ' '
- If Mayor Harrison and his crowd don't cut loose from Law-'
rence and Hearst they'll put the Democratic party .here on the rocks
as badly as Boss Lawson has done with his party. Which probably
wouldn't make Lawrence feel bad at all, for the Hearst outfit has
no use for Dunne or any other man Tvho won't obey orders.
Anyhow, there would be no sense in the Bull Moose attempting"
to pull chestnuts out of the fire for-Lawson's committee of 100. Taft
and Deneen are gone. Let the tail go with the hide. - ".
