"That Brinton, like Huttmann, the
Sullivan candidate for lieutenant
governor, is a representative of the
labor crushing corporation crowd
which is battling to gain control of
the state government of Illinois.
"We feel, regardless of political
partisanship, that both Brinton and
Huttmann should be spurned and de-
feated in their attempt to land in
public office.
"We feel that no greater handicap
could be imposed upon Woodrow
Wilson' than to have Brinton and
Huttmann as his running mates in

Gov. Dunne's gloom has turned to
joy. At the Dunne headquarters this
morning the governor was smiling as
