Court; Little Nemo for county clerk;

Just -where the Barrett brothers will
be placed has not been determined.
For it is true that the Hearst army
contemplates the invasion of Chi
cago and it is also true thatHearst
wants to forget the political game for
awhile. It has been a source of too
many of his nervous headaches.
Hearst has been in Chicago con--fernng
with Harrison M. Parker over
various ways to obtain tnore adver
tising. They have personally super
intended the campaign
One of the' strong signs of Andyv's
downfall has been the engaging of
a new city editor to take the place on
the Examiner formerly occupied by
his brother Fred, who is now on a
"vacation." But Andy still insists he
is a power.
Many reasons have been ascribed
for the rumored downfall of Law
rence. His drop as a politician has
undoubtedly been caused by his
' "grab-it-all" methods. When Mayor
Harrison was elected-mayor, Law
rence had Campbell appointed head
of the civil service, Charley Fitzmor
ris appointed the mayor's secretary,
Bill Stuart appointed chief clerk of
the election board. These men were
directly from the Hearst service. In
addition he filled up the .majority of
the other fat jobs.
vHis first fall from power came
when State's Attorney Hoyne refused
to turn over his entire list, of ap
pointees to him. '
And then while Andy was striving
to retain his wobbly throne came the
worse crash of all. It was when the
Butts legislative -committee came
here to investigate the voting ma
chine deal. Lawrence immediately
left for California.
' The deposing of Lawrence at this
time also robs him of enjoying the
fruits of the police reorganization
ilan which he fought for so long.
But Andy still has hopes.
