HARRISON SAYS TRIBUNE AND
NEWS ARE "HYPOCRITICAL"
Daily News and Tribune were
pointed to as "hypocritical" by Mayor
Harrison in his speech in North Side
Turner Hall last night. His explana
tion of why he calls them "hypocrit
ical" is that they are Republican pa
pers telling Democrats how to pick
"The hypocritical Daily News and
Tribune are now good friends of the
Democratic party," Harrison said.
"They have the nerve, the effrontery,
the audacity, to come to Democrats
and tell us how we shall vote for
United States senator. They are
serving a purpose. It is well known
that all big interests are back of the
candidacy of Roger C. Sullivan. The
gas, traction, telephone, stockyards,
all predatory interests in Chicago,
and over' the nation outside of Chi
cago, are anxious for the election of
Sullivan as an astute leader to han
dicap Woodrow Wilson in the things
he is trying to do at Washington.
"Republican newspapers refer to
Roger now as the biscuit man. They
used to call him the gas man. Now
they are trying to remove the odor
of gas from him. But the gas odor
is there as strong as ever and the
Republican press can not take it
"He sold Ogden gas for $4,500,000
though it was not worth over $400,
000. He capitalized franchise values
through vicious politics. You people
pay a gas rate based on fictitious
values created by Roger Sullivan."
