The Tribune, in spite of the jolt
handed to its selections by the voters
Wednesday, is trying to come baeik
as a political factor. It Is reported
that Maje McCormick is busy trying.
to frame a deal with Frank O. Low
den by which the Trib is to make a
hard fight for Louden in return -for
Lowden's support-of Cousin Medill
McCormick for the nomination for
U. S. senator two years hence.
Lowden" was in Chicago yesterday.
Friends .of Maje McCfarmick had fiis
ear. Lowden was urged to forget the
support of Hull given by the Tribune.
They pointed out Medill McCor
mick's run for congressman-at-large
as an argument in his favor.
Butv friends of Frank O. Lowflen
urge differently. They pojnt out that
the Trib will have to get in the Low

the Trib gets opt of it And they say
Lowden has already promised his
support to Former Att'y Gen. W. H.
Stead, who managed Ijis campaign,
and has" practically announced I his
candidacy for the senatorehip.,
If any senatorship deal Is framed
up between Lowden and the Trib

they wont get behind Medill McCor
mick if the Trib keeps op. pounding
Fred Lundin and referring to
Thompson as "Bill the Boob."

pets, Charley Deneen and Roy West,
have been sadly walloped and the

Brundage's crowd believe that a
little more activity on the part of the

in the 2d ward, where "Big Bill" is
strongest and Sam Ettelson, Sen.
Harding and Oscar De Priest are in
control, Barr received 1,467 and
Brundage 1,338. The Brundage men
claim this ward would have gone
solid for Brundage if the City Hall
had given the word. In the 10th ward, .
controlled by Tom Curran, close pal
of Big BUI, Barr got 580 and Brund
