"Not only will tho Progressive ite-

Wilson," said Mr. Spreckels, "but it
is the intention of those who disap

to Mr. Boosevelt's attempt to disrupt

One of the most prominent German
American Citizens in Cook County
and Democratic- Candidate for Be
dection as President of the County
Mr. Bartzen came to Chicago many
years ago, practically unknown, and
became a building mechanic, but with
his energy and business shrewdness,
within a short time he became a pros
perous contractor, and so continued for
years, until tho Honorable Edward F.
Dunne, mayor, was seeking for a man
to enforce tho building ordinance, ho
appointed Mr. Bartzen building com
missioner, who took hold, with his
characteristic vim, and DID enforce
these laws, for the benefit of all, and
it did not matter whether the powerful
or tho humble tried to evade the build
in? ordinance, as was shown when
Marshall Field &. Co. thought they were
too powerful to be compelled to obey
the law, when Mr. Bartzen dosed tho
establishment until compliance of the
building ordinance was had.
In 1910 Mr. Bartzen- was elected
president of the County Board by a
plurality of over 46,000 votes.
He attacked the glaring county
abuses discharged brutal attendants,
as well as grafters renovated the
County Hospital and other institutions,
which in some eases had not been done

In 1911 alone, he forced the tax
