and national politics for thirty yoars,
died at his home in Chicago today of
bronchial pneumonia. He had been

Mr. Sullivan planned to enter the
Democratic national convention at
San Francisco as the leader of.lho Il

tho avowed intention of making that
hla last appearance as a political lead

'own state by his opponents as a "boss"

(Democratic party by William J. Bry
an, led the movement that finally re
sulted In making Woodrow Wiloon
president of the United States.
Made Wilson Nomination Possible.
It was Sullivan who headed the
'Democratic delegation from Illinois at

I (he- country.
' Despite the frequent attacks on his
power and the fact that many of the
influential .party organs of Illinois
I were ngainst him, Sullivan was tho
j leader in Illinois for several years.
I Successful Business Man.
Rogor Sullivan ns a business man
had been noless successful than as a
politician. Coming to Chicago in 1879
to work in the railroad shops as an ap
prentice machinist at ?1.25 a day, ho
, was reputed to have accumulated
jmore than $1,000,000.
j lie was born on a farm near Bclvi
idere, Ills., February 2, 1861. His ed
ucation" was obtained in the public
schools and he was first employed as
a farm boj' at eight dollars a month.
Four years after coming to Chicago,
i Mr. Sullivan attended his first politi
cal meeting, a ward caucus and from
that day dated his interest in politics,
in 1S90 he was elected to his first
political office, a clerk of the probate
court. During the Cleveland adminis
tration he was appointed government
ganger. Those were tho only public
offices ho ever held.
Opposed by Wilson.
In 1914 ho was the Democratic nom
inee for United States senator, but -was
defeated by Senator L. Y. Sherman.
President Wilson opposed Sullivan's
election. Two years later his friends
proposed his name for vice president,
but he refused to enter the race and
insisted on the nomination of Thomas
R. Marshall for a second term.
Sullivan's differences with Bryan,
dated back to the free silver campaign
of 189C. He had been a delegate to
the Democratic national conventions
of 1892 and 1896, but before the elec
tion in the -latter year, he Joined the
"gold Democrats." Two years after
tho election of President McKinley,
Sullivan was elected to the state com
In 1900 he helped nominate 3ryan at
Kansas City. Four years later Sulll
an was elected to the Democratic na
tional committee, thereby laying . the
foundation for one of the bltteres po
litical fights In Illinois Democratic his
tory. Bryan opened the battle in 1908
when he served notice on the Demo
cratic state convention tnat ho would
not accept the support of the Illinois
delegation unless the convention adopt
ed a resolution demanding Sullivan's
retirement from the national commit
tee. Sullivan defeated the resolution
indorsing Bryan, which was passed.
Sullivan remained amcmber of the na
tional committee until 1916 despite re
peated efforts to oust him.
Mr. Sullivan made his fortune in
Chicago gas companies and in the
cracker business, Mr. Sullivan and
Miss Helen M. Quinlan were married
at Chicago in 1885 and to them were
born one son and four daughters.

SCHEME TO DISRUPT
Department of Justice Has
Positive Proof of Dates
WASHINGTON, April H. By The
Associated Press V Dopariment of
justico investigators report that evi
dence In their possession proves that
William Z. Foster, leader of Ihe ill
fated steel striVc, is tho prime mover
behind thoi"outlaw" railroad strike.
The government let this be known
tonifrht, feeling that ivhen the strikers
learn what influences are behind tho
movement they will align themselves
with their recognized organizations
Action by the government in tho di
rection of prosecution of strike lead
ers, therefore, will bo held Jn abey
ance pending the expected reaction
among tho strikers on receipt of infor
mation showing tne directing impulse
ot the strlko agitation.
The ovidenco In tho hands of Attor
ney General Palmer shows that Foster
Uas present at union meetings which
Iwere adjourned to moot in other halls,
'not as organizations, but as ir.'livid
juals. Mr. Palmer also said that Carl
Pltrson and A. E. Reese, both of whom
I the department's Investigators have
placed in the category with Foster,
vere r 11 ensnsred in attempts to ex
pand tho strike and were definitely
connected with planning it. Both bo
can this work in Chicago, Mr. Palmer
Preoldnt Moots Cabinet.
As this phase of the striko situation
became known, President Wilson met
his cabinet for tho first time since last
August. Tho whole story of the strike
crisis was related and it was under-
i stood a decision -was then reached to
.t ek a solution through the publication
of the motives behind the walkout, tho
strikers beinpc assured at the same
time of early consideration of any
wage demands they may have by the
railway labor hoard.
Till nillcsf nnf hn fnntnioH in ihmii

that officials believed the time has

Labor Board Not Confirmed.
The senate did not confirm today the
nominations to the labor board. They
were considered in executive session
and the president's selection brought
shnrp criticism in some cases, It was
Leaders asserted tonight that prob
ably they would bo confirmed with
little delay unless definite ground for
opposition developed from inquiries
some senators were making.
Plan to Disrupt Brotherhoods.
Mr. Palmer made public evidence
of plans prepared by Foster and his
adherents to disrupt tho four great
railroad brotherhoods and to organize
all railroad workers into ono union.
Seized documents also revealed that
a similar course was to have been fol
lowed in various other Industries
where crafts aligned with the Ameri
can Federation of Labor would be
urged to reorganize under one name.
"We have positive proof of the pians
for this e5pansion," Mr. Palmer said.
"I kno"v the dates fixed for notlonwlde
strikes In other Industries and our In
vestigators have discovered that the
fomentation of these outbursts has
gone on exactly as in tho railroad
Russian Radical Plan.
The whole program was one phase
of the plans of tho Russian radicals
"designed at the ultimate capture of
Irdustry, the overthrow of tho govern
rnent and the setting up of dictator
ship like that in Russia." Mr. Palmer
said. Workers wero being led unwit
tingly into the trap set for them, ho
added, through the Industrial Workers
of the World, and the communist in
trrnatlonale headed by Lenine and
Trotzky was attacking America's In
Federal agents had intercepted a
courier from Russia on March 1, he
3ald, bearing messages to American
locals of the communists, detailing
methods of organizing a class war.
Radicals Urged to Start Revolution.
The radicals were instructed to di
rect their utmost efforts toward draw
ing the proletarian masses into the
pathway of revolution. The organiza
tion's first goal; tho mossnge said,
must be the wrecking of the Ameri
can Federation of Labor and it ought
to establish direct and closo relation
ship with the I. W. W., and the "one
big union" of Canada. Tho I. W-W.,
the word continued, was to be the tool
employed and It was to establish the
basis for uniting all unions under the
One big union idea.
As a result of these disclosures, the
government has broadened its investi
gation, agitators in all Jabor organiza.
tions are under surveillance. Funds
used are closely watched and all duos
to tho source of the financial support
are being followed.
