DEATH OF ALDERMAN CULLER-TON.
Able Alderman and Dean of the City C
ouncll who wns burled on Wednesday
Ono of the ablest ami bust alder
moil that Chicago over hail passed
away on Sunday when Edward F. Cul
lerton died. Few people now allvo
rpinoinbor the start of thlH lomarkiiblo
man and few nu uwnro of tho many
Kreat Hcrvlecs ho rundoiod to Chicago
In his day. Vow ionu'inbir the fact
that lu was tho lender of tho now re
form council elected In 1S70 with
Thomas Hoyue for maor which put
Chicago on lt feet for the llrst time
after the Great l'lro and started It on
an uninterrupted career of glory.
Aid Cullevton wns piobably one of
tho most picturesque llgurcH In the
council as well as being tho oldest In
e.irn and In length" of service. He
first entered the council In 1871. and
served continuously until his death,
except for a term In tho 28th goncral
assembly and ono year, luuu, wnon
ho failed of re-election.
Eer since Ills entrance Into politi
cal ofllce ho lutd been the subject of
the attnrlCH of vailous selfish organ
izations, and particularly or tho so
called .Municipal Voters' League, In
whose side he was Indeed a thorn,
which It was unsuccessful in lemov
Ing. Apparently unmindful of tho
stinging attacks mado against him,
Aid. Cullerton proceeded on his coun
cil courso as he saw fit to pursue or
the exigencies of politics or his paity
The power ho held In his earlier
yeais in tho council enabled him to
hold tho chulimanshlp on tho llnnnco
committee for yeais, the most Impor
tant council committee. During later
years his inlluenco In tho council has
gradually waned, largoly becauso of
his age. 7S years, and tho changing
order of tho political game In ro
cent years ho wns an ndvocato of mu
nicipal ownership nnd In tho council
almost nlwnva lined tin with tho
Thompson administration. Soldom
wero thoio any sessions of tho council
In recent months when ho was not
opposing sorno ordinance or measuics.
Friends of his earlier political days
recall tho campaigns throughout tho
ward, which ho mado with his wife
In a horso and buggy, industriously
covering tho Important places and
speaking from tho carriage on stieot
corners when halls wero not available.
His was a personal touch campaign
in tho earlier days, and by it ho estab
lished an nequnintnnco which proved
ho valuablo n prohtlgo In Inter years
that few cared to run against him.
During his llfellmo In Chicago,
whf ro ho was born In 1842 nnd gained
a common school education, ho on
gnged In different enterprises anil
was reputed to be wealthy. In 1S!)3,
whon a member of tho firm of Trum
bull & Cullerton Roofing and Mt-tal
Lath Company, ho lost nil his money,
lie laid tho failure of that ventuio to
polities, which, ho claimed was a detri
ment to himself nnd his business.
In 11103 ho was engaged In the real
fHtato business and published a week
ly papor, tho Taxpayer, which ho con
tinued for several years. loiter he be
nimo an insurance broker.
Aid. Cullerton wns a widower, his
wlfo having died In Soptembor, 1910
Since that time he has made his homo
with his sister.
A brothor, .John J. Cullerton, and
two sisters, Mrs. William Leake and
Mrs. James Fitzgerald, survive. His
