ALD. MURRAY EXPOSES DEAL IN
18TH WARD FOR GROGAN
Aid. Carl Murray's exposure.of the
bi-partisan deal between Barney
Grogan, Democratic boss of the 18th
ward, and Homer K. Galpin and Aid.
W. J. Healy to elect Barney alder
man by putting John R. Lewis, a
nonentity, into the field against him
as Republican nominee, has aroused
a great deal of discussion west of the
river.
Murray says the deal is part of a
frame-up by which followers of Gro
gan knifed John J. Touhy last year
in favor of Aid. Healy. Murray ap
peals to all decent voters of all par
ties to stand back of Touhy, who is
running independently against Gro
gan this year.
Murray, in a-bristling statement,
revealed the information that Lewis
is a roommate of one of Barney's
bartenders. Lewis, according to the
statement, was selected as the Gal-pin-Healy
"straw man." The night
before election Grogan and Galpin
ordered the Republican machine cap
tains to drag out 10 or 15 Lewis votes
in each precinct and insure his nom
ination. For this, says Murray, the
Republican captains were promised a
"cut in" on the Grogan campaign
barrel. In conclusion Murray says:
"The only hope of preventing com
plete domination of the ward by
Grogan aad 'Groganism' lies in sup
port of the candidacy of John J. Aou
hy, the independent candidate. He
was .defeated for the Democratic
nomination by the use of 1,000 to
1,500 fraudulent votes and the sup
port of the Galpin-Healy machine.
"I have lived in the.ward for many
years, have represented it in the city
council for four years, and know that
the decent, law-abiding, self-respecting
element predominates. These
people I ask to support Touhy. I
shall do all in my power to save the
ward and Chicago from the disgrace
of electing 'Barney' Grogan."
