CALLS LOWDEN LITTLE PET OF
THE BIG INTERESTS
Robinson, III., Sept 30. Gov., E.
F. Dunne opened his campaign for
re-election with a speech here in
which he attacked his Republican
opponent, Frank 0. Lowden, as a
dangerous "representative of the pub
lic utilities corporations, packing in
terests, warehouse combination and
the Pullman Co. ,
"The primary campaign for 'his
nomination was a scandal "of corrup
tion," said Gov. Dunne. "He stands
forth as the personal representative
of the consolidated financial interests
commonly known as 'Big Business.'
"There is a homely saying that a
man is known By the company he
keeps. CoL Lowden's associates in
business, in politics and socially are
the representatives, henchmen and
tools of the big corporate powers of
Illinois. It is safe to assume that he
would be their representative if
elected governor. Is such a man safe
or qualified to act as trustee of the
people at Springfield?"
