Judging from the atti tude of tho Democratic managers, the campaign on that side of the fence promises to ho of a somewhat somno lent character. The disposition there seems to he to let matters drift, and not to make nn active canvass. However, the decision may he changed or rescinded hy tho action of tho Hepubl leans, several of the candi dates of that party having decided to make a vigorous campaign. It Is but right that the people should have an opportunity of meeting the candidates for the bench, face to face, of hearing them discuss tho Issues of the day which mo especially Involved In the funetlous of tho Judiciary, and of thereby making an Intelligent selec tion of the men who arc to administer tho lawn In Cook County, Richard 8.

When It Is understood that tho same gang that runs tho "Grand" at Mac hine runs the Planters' at St. Louis, the feelings of the outraged Governors and other World's Fair guests can be fully understood. Black and Brown they arc colors that will wear. They will como out of the Judicial wash stainless. Vote for William l Black, at all times the friend of the peoplo. Vote against the scions of aristoc racy wherever you llud them. The bench Is no place for them. Kdwnrd Osgood Brown will miiko a model Judge.

Last week the Bugle pointed out that the Central Detective Department need ed a cleaning out. There Is n big broom very active Just now In the Central De tective Htatlmi.

Will it be somo former member of the Republican par ty who became a Democrat for payroll .considerations? Will it he But why discuss the question. It Is all too rldlculout'. Asphalt paving Is the latest Idea over lu the City Hall. Any kind of paving will do provided we get It. Mr. ChnrlcriT VIplcKit, of the Board of Local Improvements, snys: "There Is no question that tho downtown dls tilets will be p.ived with asphalt." What Mr. Voplckn says can bo accept ed by the public and the taxpayers us the utterance of a man who weighs well what he soys; a taxpayer, aud a man lu many ways Interested lu the well-being of tho city. It Is sold that fully two bundled of the lawyers of Chicago have nlteady voted in the bar primaries. The names of such splendid luwyois as Simeon P. Shopo and John Bartou Payne, con nected with the movement, havo caused tho heavy vote, As it rulo bar primaries hove not hod the piestlgo of such honored names. iTlie results of the voting, however, It Is claimed, may not really luilueuce tho public very materially, as laymen have one way of looking at things, while lawycis may have another. One of the loudest arguments used by the boosters of Harrison's ridicu lous presidential boom was that ho fought Bryan tooth and mill In the con struction of the Kansas City platform Bryan knows how Harrison tiled to stick n knife Into him while pietcnd lug to be n disciple of his, on that his torlc occasion, hut ho Is doubtless not surprised. Whom has Harrison's po litical polguord spared, when the "ego" called aloud? HARROWING Harrison's Henchmen Every Man Opposed to the Mayor Off the Committee. This Is the Best Way to Permanently Wipe Him Out. That Little Majority of Seven Thousand Hat Already Gone Glimmering Up the Spout. The Sawed-off Candidate for President Makes Everybody Laugh with His Broad Statesmanship. The Proposition to Thoroughly Harrisonize the Party Meets with General Scorn and Contempt. The political henchmen of Mayor Harrison have set themselves to the task of working out the destruction of the Democratic organization In Cook County and the State tf Illinois. The extraordinary feature of the sit uation Is the fact that this work has been undertaken hy political novices aud nobodies, hacked up by n host of unsavory camp followers who lu the past hove hung upon the outsklits of the local Democratic foices, as a pie llmluary to a movement to Iwost the Presidential ambitions (save the mark) of Chlcngo's Mayorette. Such an effort can have but one cul mination, hut apparently those who aie behind It me unable to perceive whither they are drifting. Those who are supposed to he the object of this attack (and they are the llower of the local Democracy) an- un disturbed at the outlook because they know It means more danger for those back of It than those In front of It. The charges upon which certain mcniOeis of the Democratic Central Committee are to Im read out of the parly are of such a character as to ctill down upon those who are respon sible for them the ridicule of thinking men. "Knlluro to support Harrison," Is one of these charges. As to the truth or falsity of this charge The Bugle does not propose to speak, hut It has no hesitation In sajlng that. loalty to Harrison or llnrilsoiilsm Is not an es sential qiialllleatlou of true Deuioeia ey. Ilaitisoiilsiu in the past two years has been a synonym for politico! self ishness, political Ingratitude, and ab solute political egotism. The principal point hi the matter, however, Is this, that the political small fry who undertake to read tho hoiio and slnow of the Democracy out of the party are simply preparing to take the mont effectual means to ulp lu the hud their own professed alms oiiil ambitions.

Of course tho people will bo entirely guided hy tho advice of the lawyers we don't think. There are seveial ablo and respected lawycis active in the so-called bar primaries, aud the Baglo does not question the honor and honesty of their Intentions. But really how many different kinds of po litical advisors do tho people need, any way? The Central Detective Station Is to have nu overhauling. It needs it. Tho fcUiglo predicted that tills would come, and the prediction hns come true with in a very short space of time.
