MADE BY THE WRONG MAN
Senator's Friends Thcuflht They Were
Being Duped Knew Question of
Call Was Safely in Their Hands. '
What for a few moments looked Kke
trouble in the republican came last
evening was passed off quietly and
oil was copiously poured on the
disturbed waters. It was start
ed by a call for a Fourth ward
caucus for tho purpose of selecting a
slate of delegates to the convention.
Only a fw hours' notice was given, as
the call appeared in the Union for the
tirst time last evening, the time being
set at S o'clock.
'Ibuuji lit It n Trick.
The Cullomites wero inclined to
think it a Yates trick, as W. A. fCosen
fleld li the county committeeman from
that ward, and thy call of the caucus
was supposed to be safely in tile Cul
lom hands. Upon Mr. Rosentk Id's ap
pearance he explained that he knew
nothing of the call and bad not seen it
until his attention was called to it at
7:20 Ly telephone.
Ilnalluita IIiIm Guilty.
Charles Hastings, city committee
man in the Fourth ward, pleaded guilty
to issuing the call, but also pleaded in
nocence of any intentional wrongdoing
or usurpation of authority. He ex
plained that it was his information that
the delegates' names had to be filed
with the county clerk by tonight, and
as only 24 hours remained he was
afraid the blame might be shouldered
upon him as city committeeman if this
was not attended to. He was not fully
ia formed as to the different spkerea of
action of the eity and uounty commit
teemen. I.nvr Without Aton.
With thin explanation and the. one
by Mr. Rosenfield that he had taken
no action on account of the anticipatd
result of the supreme court's consid
eration of the primary law, the dozen
that had gathered departed without
formally convening. It was explained
that the state committee had declared
everything off that had been done, and
a idw call would have to be awaited.
And so the perturbable spirits wero I
Inally quieted and went their ways
soothed by the assurance that they had
been given a false alarm.
Clear l the Sltnnfloa
The aetion of the republican Kfate'
central committee today as related in
the press dispatches, will necessitate
calling off the republican county con
vention and suspending activities for
the time being. Directions that have
been issued to republicans to neither
hold nor call any conventions till after
the legislature has considerably clear
ed the atmosphere.
County DenorrnU Will Walt.
Chairman Sexton of the democratic
county committee today sta-ted that the
call recently made for the county pri
maries and convention would be with
drawn and probebly a new call issued.
Whether there will be a meetlna of tin?
committee to do this has not beea de
cided. The officers ntay act. At anr
rate nothing will be done till the state
central committee has adopted soma
course that will give a cue for the dis
trict officers to follow. The ttnatoiial
and congressional committee will fol
low the same course.
(iovrnor'n ('name Approreil.
There Is a practical unanimity of
seatiment among the leaders of both
the old parties as well as the public
in general in favor of the course Gov
ernor Deneen has adopted in endeavor
ing to immediately remedy the defects
in the primary election law. While
there were faults and glaring ones
found, sufficient to justify in the minds
of many the supreme court In the ac
tion it took, tho advantages of sueji a
measure, if properly drawn up, wer
made clear in the experience the cities
had with the one that has been de
clared nnconetitutional. The principle
is conceded to be right.
