GOODBY TO JOBS
Republicans Tell Democrats They Can
Have But One More Tear of the
Election Commissioner's Office
Because Judge Scully's Successor
in November Instead of
Republican politicians claim that
they will have a lead plpo cinch on
the- Jobs In the election commission
era olllco after November, 1920. They
clnlni that Cook county 1h bound to
go republican at the presidential elec
tion next year.
Tho election of a successor to tho
Into County .ludgo Thomas F. Scully
will be hold In November, 1920, at tho
uaino time with tho national, statu
nnd county elections. Thin dato has
been' definitely determined, and will
not bo changed unless a. competent
court order requires a special election
nicantline. It Ih also a most dollnlto
forecast that Probato .ludgo Henry
Horner will contlnuo as acting county
Judge until that election is held.
Judge Homer, It la understood, does
not desire to hold tho poHtllon or
county Jt'i'fc" aft.r lie flit' 'uve "llci'
out tho Interim appointment, and Is
expected to he a candidate to succeed
hlmsolf as Judgo of tho I'robato court
This arrangement Is now known to
bo satisfactory to all of the political
Interests nnd factions In both parties,
nnd tho politicians lmvo sounded pub
lic sentiment and have reported al
most unanimously that tho tnxpnyors
nnd citizens generally aro cntlroly
willing to lmvo tho present situation
continued, Inasmuch as It precludes
the necessity of n special $1,000,000
primary and election.
County Clerk Swoltzcr said that ho
has no downstato judgo undor consid
eration to ho called la, and Indicated
that ho has ground for tho substantial
hopo that Judgo Ilornor will act as
tho county Judgo until a now county
Judgo Is elected. As fur as tho court
proceedings nro concerned, It Is a
Btiro thing thnt any decision In tho
lowor court tending to forco Immo
dlnto action by tho county clork will
bo nppoaled to tho Supremo court,
which means a long technical dolny.
Tho antl-Sulllvan Democratic group
that talks about mandamus proceed
ings against Gov. Lowdon may tnko
soino action, but tho political leaders
lmvo been advised that no mandamus
cun llo against a governor.

Personally, tho Illinois loaders nro

M. nuruch, who now npponrs In tho
