Wallop No. 2 wai handed out
' Incomplete returns ,Bhow that the
newspapers had no influence at all in
deciding the Miller-Northup fight
' The latter only carried four wards,
the6thr 7th, 25th and 26th, and in
these, awards the- anti-Lundin machine-
was stronger than the City
Hall crowd. ,
, The Sullivan machine failed mis
erably in its attempt to put over
"Strikebreaker" Brinton. In several
wards where the Sullivan machine
was strong Roger's leaders quit cold
and refused to have anything to do
with Brinton's pandidacy. As a re
sult, Dunne carried Cook county by
a plurality of about 60,000 and swept
he state with close to 100,000 to the
good. Only Mike Kenna, boss of the
- First wardf and Denny Egan, boss 'of
the twentieth, could deliver toBrin

boss and an arnjy Of jobholders,
Dunne wpn,out by a 2 to 1 vote. In
the 10th ward County Judge Scully
refused to have antyhing to do with,
Brinton and earned the ward 3 to 1
jfor Dunne. Jim Dailey, Sullivan
county chairman and boss of the 4th
ward, was strdng for Brinton but lost
his ward-over 2 to 1.
The Sullivan machine, however,
put over Arthur Charles for state
treas.; James Brady for auditor; Lu
cey for attjy general, and apparently
Huttmann for lieut. governor. In
Cook county Sullivan cleaned up
everything. The Harrison men con
centrated their county fight for,
Prank Koraleski, Richard McGrath
and Philip McKenna, but were
trounced by Martin J. O'Brien, Jim
Gavin and Tom Sullivap. Even Pete
Bartzen, without organization, ran
ahead of McKenna.
