A strong organization lms been

Into the dlffernt counties, particularly
the following Indorsement from the
Salem Republican of Aug. 5:
"The candidacy of Edward J. Brun
dage for renonilnatlon as attorney
general on the republican ticket nt tho
ensuing primary election will lmvo n
large measure of appeal to the right
thinking voters of that party. Brun
dage unquestionably will bo a source
of strength to the republican ticket at
tho general election through Ills per
sonality and record.
"The ofllco of attorney-general Is one
of great honor and Inllucuco nnd pre
sents to tho Incumbent varied oppor
tunities. It should bo said to tho
credit of Mr, Hrundago that ho has
made the most of his opportunities and
that under him the attorney-general-ship
has not shrunk, but has expanded
into a powerful agency for tho public
good. Ills record ns attorney-general
is ono of achievement and shown
efficiency on a large scale.
"Attorney-General nrundago defend

faro law against tho combined attack
of practically all tho railroad com
panies of this stato. If tho contentions
made by tho railroad companies In
that litigation had prevailed In tho
Supremo court of the United States
tho stato of Illinois would havo lost
all real control over lntrastato rates
As a result of that litigation tho rail
road companies wore forced to refund
to passengers amounts aggregating
several millions of dollars collected in
excess of tho statutory fnres. Tho
rates that are being charged now aro
in accordunco with tho federal regula

"Ills success In tho prosecution of
the East St. Louis riot cases Is well
known. It earned for him tho gratl
tudo of all tho law abiding citizens.
"As a result of these prosecutions
bv tho attorney-general's olllco nine
teen men wore sent to tho penitentiary.
