"At the present time there seems
to be only two places in which gamb

Mr. Omo yesterday. "1 am certain
that the great majority of Pythians
do not approve of allowing the halls
to be used for gambling. They mere
ly do not like to start any trouble.

The factional row among the republi

They must work as a unit or allow

Representative John L. McLaughlin
of Chicago, one of the democratic can

house urging them not to pledge their
support to anyone else at this time.
Representative Thomas N Gorman
of Peoria, another of the democratic
candidates for the speakership, will

strength McLaughlin has will be used
to aid Gorman when the final caucus

"It has come to my knowledge that
some of the members of certain sub

remaining in the lodgerooms and in
dulging in games ot chance, by way
of playing cards, and money and other
valuables are wagered on these games.
