The coming of a storm calls for
the utmost vigilance on the

The cost of repairing the tele

Col. Prank I.. Smith, who was re
elected republican stnto chairman at
Sprlugllold, is not a party to any
"deal" to re-elect Mayor Thompson
topiihllcnn national committeeman.
This was definitely stated by one
of his closest personal and political
friends last night anil was coupled
with the assertion by tho same down
state republican leader that Col.
Smith will not bo a candidate for tho
republican nomination for United
"The national committeeship con
test Is Just whero It stood when tho
state convention adjourned," this
man said. "There will bo a fierce
fight In tho Illinois delegation, with
out doubt, and tho result cannot bo
anything but close."
Whether Col. Smith Is to ho n can
didate for tho republican nomination
for governor remains to bo deter
mined. Cov. I.owdon returned to Chicago
f i om Springfield. Tho word from his
personal headquarters Is that ho pro
poses to go tho route In the effort
to stop tho re-election of tho mayor
to the national committee.
Prominent lawyors thioughoat Illi
nois havo registered their disapproval
of tho act of Juno 28, 1910, providing
for tho nomination of Judges nt coun
ty conventions. Tho occasion was a
discussion of tho subject of repre
sentatives of most of the circuits of,
this ftato at tho annual convention
of the Illinois State liar association,
which Is meeting at the Hotel Slier
man. Opponents of tho act feel that lit
too ninny Instances politicians would
carry around the nomination and elec
tion of Judges In their pockets. Those
of tho voters familiar with the act
It has not yet been tried out, hut will
bo soon aro dissatisfied with tho stat
ute, thoy sahl.
W. II. Hart of Ronton,. speaking for
tho second circuit, which Is composed
of twelve counties, said ho felt tho
peoplo of his circuit woie opposed
to the method. So far as the Judges
aro concerned, ho said. It appears
thnso who aro "in light" favor tho
act, which they believe will bo tho
means of perpetuating them In otllco,
whllo thoso on tho outside, "hoping
to got In," denounce tho statute ns
an outrage. The voters feel that

among tho old convention system of

primary, he said. The views thoy of

ter ho dispatched to them woro many
and varied. Advocates of the direct
primary said tho pilmary promotes
fitness, keeps the judiciary close to
the people, keeps the Judges thinking
of tho peoplo and allows of loss like
lihood that the Judiciary will feel
themselves remote from tho peoplo
and thus become closer to special In
terests. The primary, he said, provents tho
boss rule which tho nomination of
Judges by county conventions would
nppear to permit. Mnny of Mr. Sclmo
fer's correspondents told him that
"tho convention system is archaic and
Inasmuch ns county conventions nro
composed of politicians frequently of
tho class of ward heelers, It Is both
unwise and Improper that tho nomi
nation of Judges should bo left In such
hnnds. Under such circumstances, ho
pointed out, nominations would bo of
fered In payment of political debts.
On tho othor hand, thoso Inwyors
among his correspondents who op
posed the primary method of nomina
tion nsseited that In n primary can
didates are chosen not because of
their fitness, but because of popular
clamor, nnd In tho case of Judges,
those chosen undor tho prlmery sys
tem are left exposed to tho Iniluenco
of tho mob.
