TAYLOR'S MEMORY EXTREMELY
HAZV ON SOME POINTS
Chicago newspapers and their
peculiar political games were dis
cussed by Election Commissioner
Howard S. Taylor in his testimony
before the Butts legislative commit
tee investigating the Cook County
vote machine deal today.

had the backing of Andrew M. Law

discussed the Empire machine with

memory on this point, as well as on
several others, was extremely hazy.

the Hearst political party in the
West, and Harry Barr, agent for the
Empire concern, had visited him in

others whose politics he didn't know,
fought the deal.
In answer to a query as to the poli
tics of the Daily News, he said:
"I don't think anybody knows the
politics of the News."
