ROGER SULLIVAN DEAD
Prominent Democratic Politician

His Death Will Cause a Marked
Change In the Career of Many
Hogcr C. Sullivan died on Wednes
day. Ills dentil was not unexpected.
While he was practically out of
politics, his Influence kept many men
In olllee and In other good Jobs, cor
porate and otherwise.
These men wilt miss Roger because
while they did hi in more harm than
good they practically depended upon
him for all that they had.
The now alllnnco In tho sanitary dis
trict board took charge Monday, tho
first business boing tho ousting of L. F.
King, chief clerk, and Clifford R. Bech

TO NAME JUDGES
Under the Existing Laws Ward Com
mitteemen Chosen Last Tuesday Will
Pick Superior and Circuit Courts
The Citizen's Association Galls on Constitutional
Convention to Make New Plan for
Tho Citizens' association of Chicago
has issued n bulletin favoring tho
adoption by the constitutional conven
tion of an appointive plan, properly
safeguarded, for tho selection of Cook
county Judges. Extracts from tho 'bul
let In follow:
"Do tho people of Cook county pick
their Judges? Is it not a fact that they
really havo no volco In tho selection
of Judges under tho present systom?
Theoretically tho votors havo tho
power through their elective fran
chise; practically, with tho power of
nomination taken from thorn by ro
cent legislation, they aro powerless.
"In our opinion unification af tho
courts of Cook county, which will pro
vldo a buslnossltko organization, is im
peratively nocossary. Wo bollovo, how
ovor, that It Is usoloss to look for df
llclout administration of Justico in this
community, so long as tho present
sonseloss systom prevails of selecting
Judges without duo regard to fltuess.
"Tho low abiding people of Cook
county aro deeply disgusted with tho
prosont nonadmlulstratlon ot Justico
in tholr courts and especially with tho
falluiQ of tho court machluory for tho
punishment ot crime, which not only
Imperils llfo and proporty, but con
stantly rollouts discredit upon our city.
Thoy wont tho laws onforced. If tho
constitutional convention will present
a Judiciary ortlclo which provides
a proper plan for tho appointment of
Judges, coupled with provisions for
consolidation of courts nnd slmplllled
procedure, wo believe tho voters will
"Wo respectfully recommend to the
constitutional convention tho adoption
of a system ot appointment, adequate
ly safeguarded, for tho selection of
tho Judges of Cook county."

TO LEAVE TOWN
Tho city council commltteo on or
ganization Is highly disorganized. Tho
six aldermen chosen at a council cau
cus to solcct this year's commltteo
slato have held four moetlngs without
deciding whoro to go to do tholr work.
Aid. Cormak, Llpps, and Crowo aro
in favor ot going to BUoxl, Miss. Aid.
Schwnrtz, auornsoy, and Olson, who
nre lawyers, wish to stay near Chi
cago. Anothor offort to got togother
will bo mado today.
"Aid. Llpps, Crowe, and myself
havo decided to leavo for Blloxl," said
Aid. Cormak, Tuesday. "If tho othors
don't wish to go, lot them stay hero.
Wo fool wo need a vacation. Wo aro
spending our own mnnoy for tho trip
nnd wo aro going."
As tho committoo has only four
moro than u majority of tho council
pledged to Its slate, tho disagreement
led to a rumor that tho council may
tako tho slato making Into Its own
hands unless ngrcoment Is reached to
day. HAM ON EDGE?
Former Senator J. Ham Lewis Has
"In Now England tho leaders sug
gest Sonator Lodge of Massachusetts
for prosldont, and Gov. Iowdon for
vico prosldont," ho announced. "In
Now York thoy sny that labor, led by
tho minors' union, whoso, lawyor,
Hughos has becomo, must head tho
tlckot. They want Johnson for vlco
prosldont. Thoy soy that Johnson as
governor of California defeated
Hughes In 1910, and that If Hughes
and Johnson run on tho same tlckot it
will harmonlzo tho party"
Tho former sonator admitted that
WHOLE JH TjaiUEll 1 59 J
while "friends of tho administration''
had suggested him for vlco president,
"Prosldont Wilson had nothing to do
with' tho move," nnd that tho "MeAdoo

nnd on tho Pacllc coast," was launched
without consultation "with either Me
Adoo or myself."
BOND ISSUES BEATEN
Tho proposed bond issues were all
beaten on Tuesday.
Higher tax bills received last month
by tho voters aro believed to havo
prompted tho swamping of the bond
proposuls under an avnlnncho of bal
lots. Tho only ono of tho four Issues
that showed any Indications of win
