that report is axiomatic. "I believe it
to be the ainpainted truth, and It cer
tainly hits the bull's eye. Th report
as to the abuse of the civil service
law, as well as the primary law, and
the bad administration of state institu

TILL IN CLOSED
SALOON IS ROBBED
Mizer's Place on Second Avenue
Entered and $12 Taken Dan
Kelley Held for Job. ,
Rev. Frank C. Tlruner of Chioaso ar
rived in the city, last evening for a
brief stay here, combining a political
mission with a vvisit with relatives
here. Mr. Uruner is a close personal
friend of former Governor Richard
Yates, and has been more or less ac
tively interested id Mr. Yates' cam
paign for the nomination. Discussing
the bituation with an Argtis. represen
tativp, Mr. Bruner spoke today enthus
iastically of the outlook for Yates, and
claimed that the situation is very fa
vorablo for the former governor.
Strong; In C hl-nn.
Mr. Bruner said that in Chicago,
where Governor Deneen is credited
soneraily with considerable strength,
the Yates faction is modest in claim
ins that it will split the vote evenly
with the executive. Mr. Bruner claim
that the two Chicago papers backing
Governor . Deneen's campaign do no!
represent the sentiment of Cook coun-ty.-i
He intimated that they are sup
porting the governor because of pri
vate interests which he holds in them.
'I have lived for 10 years in De
neen's wards in Chicago," said Mr.
Bntner, -"and from a careful analysis
of that -territory, which is claimed so
heavily by the governor's friends, I
am fully satisfied- that -the vote for
Yates will at least break even with
Deneen at the primaries Aug. 8."
Mr. Bruner. in speaking of the story
appearing in the Chicago daily papers
this morning, that Mayor Busse rnd
eight other' republican leaders have
seen fit to endorse Governor Deneen.
said. "That statement is ridiculous, if
th,e impression intended , is that the
county is for. Deneen. The endorse
ment of those nine leaders will not
amount to much when placed against
th,e vote for Yates at the. primary in
August. If such a stand should be
seriously taken, the reaction would be
overwhelmingly in favor ck Yates." .
He claims tbatthe sentiment of the
public on the real Issues between
Yates and Depeen is very favorable
to. Yates., who wants the abuse of the
primary laws stopped, and who claims
that his rival-is abusing the civil serv
ice in his appointments to- office and
that his administration of the state
institutions is miserably poor.
Throtiichnut hr State.
Mr. Bruner has 'visited a large num
ber of counties, including Cass, Green
Mason. McLean, Champaign. Clark and
Cook, and nays that without exception
he has found the Yates faction predom
Mr. Bruner was asked if he had any
information as to the situation here.
In response, he said that while on-the
surface there seems to be a fair sen
timent for Deneen, the real situation
is for Yates. . . .
