"You are going to leara protty
soon that the United States senator
ship of Illinois, to be delivered to Wil
liam Hale Thompson two years
hence, was a part of all the jockey
ing and bargaining among those who
made up the Peoria slate of the Low
den ticket,"
This was Banker Frdnk L. Smith's
statement today in the Garrick the
ater noon meeting. He attacked
Frank 0. Lowden, his rival for the
Republican nomination for governor,
and pointed to the Wisconsin and
Canada conferences, where Lun
din and Mayor Thompson met Low
den and "sat up until 3 o'clock in the
"Were they discussing a new bud
get system for Illinois and reorgani
zation of the public service or was
the matter at issue what Lundin and
Thompson would get if they 'went
along' and if Lowden 'went over'?
asked Smith.
"You know what they talked over
were the terms on which the City
Hall machine would support Lowden.
Yo'u know aat in the Peoria caucus
jobs and spoils were the subject of
discussion. You know that by vir
tue of the agreement Mayor Thomp
son became national committeeman,
getting part of his pay in advance."
He said Roy 0. West? former Gov.
Deneen and Union League club mem
bers are an "Owners' ass'n" who
have picked Morton . Hull and
"Hull's bank account" for the Re
publican governorship campaign.
Smith is the first of the candidates
for Republican nomination to say
what kind of home rule he favors for
Chicago. All power of home rule
should be placed in the hands of the
city council, he said. All local pub
lic utilities should be under regula
tion of aldermen.
It has been predicted Smith would
attack Lowden as a Pullman corpor
ation director and a man of wealth
who doesn't know what the people i
want. Swift didn't touch this ass an
issue. From the Hull camp Word
comes that material is-being collect
ed and when Hull starts in on his Chi
cago campaign the Pullman Co. in
politics will get a lambasting.,
