By the Associated Press. CHICAGO, Febuary 25—Chicago's sleepiest political campaign dragged to a finish today, with the Democrats matching the Republicans yawn for yawn. Tonight clerks will shake the mice out ol the ballot boxes and set up elec tion machinery which costs them over $200,000 to operate. Tuesday citizens who can be stirred to the point of voting will nominate candidates for mayor. Political writers who predict a sweeping victory for Mayor Edward J. Kelly, a Democrat, used the word "campaign" with apologetic quotation marks. Not even the entry of Mrs. Grace Gray, the first woman to seek the nomination, stirred any particular interest. She is a Republican. Historically, and particularly in the Wild West days when William Hale "Big Bill" Thompson was on the scene, Chicago primaries were melo dramatic affairs which sometimes got to the shooting stage. This year a dog fight could steal the show. None of the candidates oppos ing Mayor Kelly had as much as a headquarters, let alone an organiza tion. Things were equally as quiet among the Republicans. Attorney Emil Wet ten, regarded as one of the two most likely contenders for his party's nomi nation, became ill when the season opened and issued a platform only yesterday. Organization Democrats predict a record-breaking majority of 400,000 votes for Kelly. * British Mail Heavy. More than 6,000,000,000 letters and packages were mailed in Britain last year.
