SLEW OF SLEUTHS OUT EARLY
TO WATCHVTHE POLLS
State's Att'y Hoyne had a squad of
100 detectiv.es and investigators out
early this morning watching for
crooked work at the polls. Reports
had been heard that attempts would
be made to colonize voters and uSe
"repeaters." Hoyne announced that
speedy justice would be handed Qut
to all offenders.
The Deneen crowd was busy howl
ing "fraud" st the Lundin-neutral
crowd and the Dunne-Harrison men
were hurling similar charges at the
Sullivan faction.
The. fierce anti-union labor senti
ment developed against "Strike
breaker" Brinton during the last few
days made the chances of Gov.
Dunne's renomination appear more
certain. Several of the Sullivan
leaders who had endorsed Brinton
developed cold feet and 'instructed
their workers not to pay any atten
tion to the scrap for governor, hut
to concentrate on the Sullivan
county ticket.
On the Republican side the Low
den, Hull and Smith managers were
all claiming victory. In the congest
ed districts where a heavy early
morning vote was brought out Low
den and Miller, Thompson candidate
for state's att'y, were reported to be
running strong.
Charges of double-crossing and
knifing were heard on all sides. The
.principal outburst came from friends
of Ed Brundage, candidate for att'y
.general. The Ettelson-Harding com
"bination on the South Side was re
ported working actively for Sen.
Dick Barr.
The biggest-feature of the day was
the money that changed hands. The
Sullivan crowd is reported to have
received -a "barrer of coin" from
Brinton and his anti-union associ
ates in the Illinois Manufacturers'
ass'n. The Dunne-Harrison crowd
tnanaged.to do better than they ex
pected. Rich friends of Dunne are
said to have rushed to his aid when
j
his chances were threatened by the '
Sullivan endorsement of Brinton. '
On the Republican side of it the
Thompsoh-Lundin faction is said to
have spent the most money, al-
though Charley Deneen and Roy O.
West managed to squeeze plenty of
coin from their corporation friends
to, save Morton Hull and Johnny
Northup. ,

NO PEACE MOVES FROM POPE
GASPARRI TO RESIGN
Rome, Sept. 13. Pope Benedict
will make no more efforts to end the
war until he is convinced that one
side or the other is approaching a
stage of exhaustion.
His Holiness is now convinced that
it would be useless for him to renew
Lpeace overtures either now or in the
immediate future.
It has been rumored persistently in
the last 48 hours that Cardinal Gas
parri, papal sec'y of state, is about
to resign. Under Sec'y of State To
deschini will be Gasparri's seccessor,
it is reported.
Pietro Gasparri is 64 years old and
was created a cardinal on Dec 16,
1907. He has held many prominent
church offices and was a member of
Pope Pius' famous commission for
the codification of the canon law.

ers are believed to be hiding, with

ment of the ring, Gen, Gonzales,
