DUNN PUTS SOME QUESTIONS
UP TO GEORGE E. COLE.
William H. Dunn, former clerk of
the Superior Court, who since his
retirement from public office has de
voted his time to crusading against
organizations such as the United
Charities, which aim to exploit the
poor of Chicago, is out against
"Aleck" McCormick, who wants an
other term as county president.
Yesterday Dunn asked some very
annoying questions of George E.
Cole, one of the promoters of the
County Union, which is telling peo
ple why they should vote for news
paper candidates rather than others.
Dunn wants to know what Cole
did with money spent by him while
, chairman of the board of county vis
itors. "As a citizen and taxpayer of Cook
county," says Dunn, "I hereby ap
peal to your board to pass a resolu
tion ordering George E. , Cole, for
merly president of the board of
county visitors, t omake an account
ing at once to the County of Cook
for all moneys drawn by him while
president of the County board of vis
itors, asper the following vouchers:
"Nos. 5512, 6683, 7519, 8656, 9394,
10478, 11299 and 12585.
"I ask 'in justice to all the taxpay
ers of Cook county for what reason
George E. Cole hsould draw money
on above vouchers from Cook coun
ty and fail to make an accounting
of the expenditures of the same,
while men who have been elected to
public office have been criticized by
Mr. Cole as having failed, to do their
duty in checking reckless expendi
tures of county funds.
"Is the reason for Mr. Cole's fail
ure to account to the people for mon
eys he received on account of his
standing as a watchdog for the hon
est voters in his assuming to select
only good candidates for the people
to vote for? I, as a taxpayer and
voter of the County of Cook, would
like to have Mr. Cole make an ac
counting to the County of Cook be
fore I cast my vote for men he has
selected."
