The Democratic County Central Committee
Has Formally Opened the Great
Campaign for Yictory.
Tlit County Convention Gallid to Moot on
Juno 12 to Nominate All County
While All of the Congressional Conventions
Are Ordered to Do Their Work
July 10.
The Democratic County Convcn
tlontoclcct delegates to thoStatoCon
vontlon and to nominate county olll
ccrs tins been called for .Juno 12. The
primaries will be held on the pre
vlous day.
All Congressional conventions will
be held July 10.
The County Central Committee do
clarcd against nominating a candi
date for United States Senator In the
State Convention on account of In
expediency. A new Issue has been raised to
trouble the local Republican leaders.
When the county committee met Sat
urday and voted to hold the conven
tion for Cook May 12 tlio Rcnorul
opinion was thut it would be a mere
formal affair, and that after the se
lection of delegates from the various
wards and country towns to represent
the county In the Stute convention,
a resolution would b passed Instruct
ing thoso delegates to vote for Henry
Wullt for State Treasurer and then
adjournment. It will not bo nearly
as simple as that. The delegates to
the State convention will bo solcctcd.
Henry Wulff will bo indorsed. Hut
adjournment will not follow. Mr.
Cullom's friends have bjgun to as
sert themselves. They are reaching
out to capture the delegates. They
know it would bo no uso to attempt
to capture the convention. Thoy
will labor to get their men elected as
delegates. The Mason men and other
antl-Cullom men are excited over the
Lincoln Park Commissioner Ber
nard Weber would rouke a strong
candidate for State Treasurer.
Tbos. P. Sullivan, the popular
Democrat and well-known North
Sldo grocer, Is mentioned for County
J. M. Browning, President Du
Quoin Coal Co. and popular with tho
miners, Is mentioned as tho Demo
cratic candidate for Superintendent
of Public Instruction.
In tho First Congressional District
tho Republican majority Is so over
whelming that it is doubtful If Joel
M. Longonocljer, tho probablo Repub
lican nominee, will havo any opposi
tion. Ex-Aldernian John Oaynor, tho
stalwart Eighteenth Ward Democrat
and President of the Standard Brew
ery, will be tho next State Senator
from his district
Stephen A. Reynolds, tho well
known Attorney, who served sovcrul
terms in the Legislature, has been
indorsed by Republicans of tho Fif
teenth Senatorial District for tho
nomination of State Senator.
It is intimated that Drainago
Trustee Lyman E. Cooley Is likely to
succeed Superintendent Pottlgrew of
the Lincoln Park Board.
James R. H. Van Cleave's candi
dacy for tho , Shrievalty is being
pushed with vigor, as is that of his
only strong competitor, James Pease
of Lake View. William Boldenwcck
still persists In being a candidate for
tho .County Treasurers!)!?, but can
not possibly make, It as Mr. Pease
will cotno into the convention with
tho solid support of the two wards
the Twenty-tlfth and Twenty-sixth
In which Mr. Boldonwcck's only
strength lies.
Congressman Julius Goldzlor Is
not u candidate for rcnomlnation, as
the Democrat have practically de
cided on nominating him for Probate
Judge, which 'ofllco Is more congenial
to his taste. Albert Phalcn has been
slated for some time to succeed Gold
star, and will assuredly bo the next
Congressman from tho Sixth Dis
trict. Chu. G. 'cely has been Indorsed
for County Judgo by the Republican
Club of Cicero. Mr. Neely states
most emphatically that he will und r
no circumstances accept u nomina
tion for Congress. John R. Purker,
Chas. S. Decnccn, Mr. Neely und
Col. Furl In Q. Bull are the leading
candidates on tho Republican sldo
for County Judge.
Tho settlement in tho Republican
ranks that Henry Wullt shall receive
the nomination for State Treasurer
clears the Held, and now thero Is a
hustle among politicians for nomina
tions for county offices. The follow
ing ticket for three Important places
will probably go through:
For BherltT , J. It. II. Vnn Citato
For Treasurer B. II. Hsymonrt
For County Clerk H. W. Illderburi:
This ticket represents tlio three di
visions of the city, and will prove a
strong one. Assessor Pease, of Lake
Vlow, and William Boldenwcck, ex
Mayor of tho same place, uro both
candidates for County Treasurer, and
the latter may win If Mr. Raymond
declines to enter the Held. Mr. Ray
mond Is Just recovering from a very
painful illness. He will be actively
about this week. Mr. Riderburg's
selection will udd great strength to
tho ticket, as he is ono of tho most
populnr and reputable Republicans
in Cook County. His long service in
tho office makes him tboioughly con
versant with the duties Imposed, and
his promotion Is well deserved. All
admit that tho selection of Mr. HI
dcrburg Is an udmlrablo one.

West Town Supervisor Frank Kll
crane is strongly backed for tho Pro
bate Court Clerkship. Frank is one
of the most popular young Democrats
In Cook County and doesn't know
what "defeat" means. His nomina
tion would certainly add strongth to
the ticket, and ho stands an excellent
show of being tho nominee.

publican attorney, avers thut. ho Is
not an aspirant for tho nomination
of County Judge, there is no ono
denying tho fact that he would bo a
strong candidate should ho be select
ed as tho standard-bearer.
Dining tho past week tho prospects
of John R. Parker's securing tho
Republican nomination for County
Judgo havo grown exceedingly
bright. All factions in his own
ward, the Twelfth, have united in
Ills' Interest and he will have tho
solid delegation In tho convention.
Leaders throughout the city und
county admit the candidate should
come from tho West Side, and from
present Indications tho West Side
wards will be a unit for Parker. He
is one of the ablest lawyers in tho
State, and no stronger man could bo i
named for the office. He Is not mak
ing a scramble for the nomination,
but will enter tho campaign to win
should his party see tit to honor him
with tho nomination. Democrats
und Republicans alike recognize his
eminent ability to till tho position
honorably and Impartially In tho in
terests of the whole people. j
Tho friends of W. E. Mason havo
entered on a systematic canvass with
the purposo of obtaining the Indorse
ment of tho Republican County Con
vention for him for United States

entitled to uumo tho candidate, and
If any ono Is named Mr. Mason must
bo tho man. Democrats are likely to
pick up some Cook County man like
Franklin MacVeagh or John A.
I King. That being tho case, tho Re
publicans will havo to tako up u
( Cook County man, and Mason must
bo the man, they say. Irouuols

Tuesday was payday for employes
of the city, but no one got any
money. Wednesday the prospects
were no brighter, and there was much
complaint, espcc'ally from llrcmcn
1 and policemen. Comptroller Acker
man was found signing warrants for
the pay of policemen, and said that
' he couldn't pay on the tlrst day of
j the month, because lie didn't get the

At tho Methodist conference In
New York, Rev. Julius Nelson, of
Itoxbury, Conn., was a candidate for
continuation ns elder. Tho point was
raised against hi in that ho was In
debt, and this precipitated a discus
sion as to his tltncss for ordination.
A committee investigated the cao
and reported that Mr. Nelson re
ceived a salary of $;00 a year, and
his parish included three churches
widely separated, so that he had to
keep a horse to drlvo from fourteen
to thirty-eight miles every Sunday.
This report not only settled tho right
of Rev. Mr. Nelson to confirmation
but caused tho brethren to raise a
purse of $200 for him. In theso days
of fashionable churches and high
priced .pastors men may somotimes be
tempted to regard the clergy as in
spired by tho same ambitions that
move other men, but they need only
to turn to tho country to tind tho
ministers who serve the Lord with
out naming tho price.

There is among Democratic, author
ities u strong conviction that Albert
Phalcn, the well-known attorney
und author and compiler of "Piiulcn's
Criminal Cases," will bo the Demo
cratic nominee for Congress In the
Sixth District. Mr. Phalcn Is well
and favorably known throughout tho
district, und Is sure of election by a
handsome majority.' The appended
comments by leading attorneys sug
gest the tenor of thought In this
regard. Luther Latliu Mills: "I
havo known Albert Phalcn ever
since ho came to Chicago. He Is an
excellent lawycr.a fair-minded, honor
able gcutlcnran, und will mako an ex
cellent Congressman." Judge Joel
M. Longcneckcr: "Doplto political
differences, I must say that Albert
1'hulen will make a splendid Con
gressman. Ho has proven his capi
tal ability by writing a woikon crim
inal law which Is an authority, lie
fides this ho Is conspicuously honest,
conservative, acute, and able. It Is
a raro otublnutlonof good qualities."
Charles G. Nccly: "Albort Phalcn Is
clear-headed, energetic, but not
hasty, sound in law and dclihcrato in
Judgment, us well as of high charac
ter and wide repute. His hold on tho
pcoplo was shown In tho remarkable
strength he developed in the lust
Congressional campaign. "
In the Second District Clayton K.
Crafts, cx-Spoaker of tho Hoiio of
Representatives at Springtlold, will
certainly receive the Democratic
nomination. Ho will bo opposed by

Giccro Hoard of Trustees, who will
bu tho Republican nominee Tho
district was cut out for u safe Demo
cratic majority of l.iioo, but Mr.
Piper Is ono of tho shrewdest politi

tieth Ward, Is the latest candldato
mentioned on the Republican side
for Congress in tho Second District
Tho Third District Is hoavlly Dem
ocratic. Lawrence E. McGann will
be lcnomlnatcd by tho Democrats
there, and tho Republicans will nom
inuto Marcus Pollasky, tho great pro
moter and capitalist, whom they rely
on to reduce tlio majority consider
ably, as he Is ono of the 11 nest orators
In tho West. Ho will tako the stump
