LABOR MEN WARN AQAINST
HENRY W. HUTTMANN
Repudiation of marked ballots, en
dorsing Henry W. Huttmann for
lieutenant governor, -was demanded
today by organized labor in a letter
sent to all Candidates in the Demo
cratic primaries. The letter is sign
ed officially by John Pitzpatrick, pres
ident of the Chicago Federation. of
Labor, and V. A. Olander, sec'y
treas. of the Illinois State Federation

"De desire to notify you that Mr.
Henry W. Huttman has been unani
mously condemned by the Chicago
Federation of Labor, and that any
t efforts made by candidates for pub-
lie office and other political workers-'
in behalf of Mr. Huttman, against the
protests of the working people of this
state, will be regarded by us as a
distinctly hostile act toward the
cause of organized labor. The cir
culation of marked ballots, endors
ing Mr. Huttman, should be repudi
ated." Huttmann is the tool that Jake
Loeb and John M. Glenn are trying
to put over in order to throttle all
labor legislation at the next session
of the legislature. If he is nominated
and elected all hope of legislation fa
vorable to the school teachers and
the workers generally -will be killed.
As president of the senate he will
play the game for Loeb and Glenn,
and the labor lobby will be denied
even an opportunity to be heard.
v Loeb and Glenn have lined up the
big interests and the papers for Hutt
man and they are openly boasting
that no labor legislation will be con
sidered at the 50th general assembly
of the Illinois legislature. Vic Law-
son, Maj. Mccormick, Jim Keeley and
all the other trust-serving publish
ers who divide State street's annual
appropriations of $2,500,000 'are
plugging strong fof Huttmann.
Huttmann is opposed by Barratt
O'Hara, the present lieutenant-governor.
O'Hara's record is good
throughout. Early in his term he
started an investigation of wagea
that resulted In a national sensation.
He had all the State street plutes on
the carpet, and for once the thou
sands of working women who are
fighting against terrible odds to
make both ends meet had the tables
turned on their exploiters. Many
irls had their wages raised because
of O'Hara's work." Eleven states
passed minimum wage laws in 1913
during the period, of the greatest pub
he activity of the O'Hara commis
sion. O'Hara hap had the interests
on his back ever since. The news
paper trust that derives its income
from State street has been especial
ly savage, but O'Hara has held the
confidence of the people and has al
ways won out J
MAY FORCE I. C. TO ELEVATE
