Republicans Tell Democrats They Can
Hare But One More Year of the
Election Commissioner's Office
Because Judge Scully's Successor Is to Be Chosen
in November Instead of at the
NORTH SHORE GETS
Republican pollHclnna claim that
they will havo u lead plpo cinch on
thu jobs In tlio election commission
era' olllce after November, 1020. They
claim that Cook county Is bound to
go republican at tho presidential olec
lion next onr.
Tho election of u successor to tho
luto County Judgo Thomas K. Scully
will bo hold In Novcmbor, 1920, at tho
sumo tlmo with tho national, Btato
and county elections. This dnto has
been doflnttoly determined, and will
not bo changed unless a compotcnt
court order requires a special election
meantime. It Is also a most doflnito
forecast that Probato Judgo Honry
Horner will contlnuo as acting county
Judgo until Hint election Is held.
Judgo Hornor, It Is understood, does
not doslro to hold tho position of
county Iui'ko after he kIii'.U lutve 1llo1
out tho Interim appointment, and Is
expected to ho n cnndldato to succeed
himself as Judgo of tho Probato court
This arrangement Is now known to
bo satisfactory to nil of tho political
Interests and factions in both parties,
and tho politicians hnvo sounded pub
lic sentiment and hnvo reported al
most unanimously that tho taxpayers
and citizens gonorally nro ontlroly
willing to hnvo tho presont situation
continued, Inasmuch as It precludes
tho necessity of a special $1,000,000
primary and election.
County Clerk Sweltzcr said that ho
has no downstato Judgo under consid
eration to bo called In, and Indicated
that ho has ground for tho substantial
hopo that Judgo Hornor will act as
tho county Judgo until a now county
Judgo Is elected. As far as tho court
proceedings nro concorned, It Is a
Buro thing thnt any decision In tho
lower court tending to forco Immo
dlato action by tho county clork will
bo appealed to tho Supremo court,
which moans n long technical delay.
