"The City Hall crowd is planning
to grab the election by default," says
the league report. "They want to

are making a quiet but hard cam
paign to get rid of as many as pos

members of the council.
"If you wish to go back to the old
days when franchises were peddled
through the streets of Chicago and
the council was for sale to the high
est bidder, if you wish to put Johnny
Powers back on the throne and rele
gate honest men to the rear, then
stay home next Tuesday and let the
spoils politicians and their hangers
on do the rest, for they surely will do
it unless prevented.!'
