Incorporated under the Laws of Illinois. Henry P. Donovan. 100 SATURDAY, OCTOBER 5, 1912. FOR GOVERNOR, EDWARD F. DUNNE. The Chicago Eagle is for Edward P. Dunno for Oovornor of Illinois. The editor of the Chicago Eaglo has been a personal friend of Edward F. Dunno for the past thirty-eight years, and tho knowledge of bis many good qualities and high character as a man and .is an official gained during that time Induces us to unequivocally en dorse him for tho position of chief magistrate of Illinois. Edward F. Dunne was born at Watervtlle, Conn., on October 13, 1853. Within a year his parents moved to Peoria, 111., and here 'the son spent his youth and early manhood. After graduating from the Peoria public and high schools, Mr. Dunne was sent to the world-famous Trinity College at Dublin to complete his ed-. ucation. For three years he was honor man of his class, but owing to the fi nancial reverses of his father ho was obliged to return to Peoria before completing his college education. While at work in his father's mill at Peoria, Mr. Dunne pursued a course of reading with reference to tho legal profession. In 187C he regularly began the sHudy of law In Chicago and in 1877 was admitted to the Illinois bar. In partnership with such distin guished lawyers as Judge Scatcs, for merly of tho Supreme Court of Illi nois, and Congressman Hyncs, Mr. Dunne built up a largo practice, to which he devoted his energies for fif teen years. Ho wlthdrow from prac tice in 1892, upon being elected to fill a vacancy on the circuit court bench. Hero ho soon began to make a record for Judicial ability and fidelity which, strengthening as It grow, secured his re-election in 1897 and again in 1903. His nomination for tho latter election was endorsed by tho Bar Association and the various good government or ganizations and newspapers. In April, 1906, after serving thirteen years on the circuit court bench, Judge Dunne was elected mayor of Chicago. It was solely at the call of the people that Judge Dunne's sphere of activity in their behalf was trans ferred from the bench to the office of mayor of Chicago. The all-Important traction question was to be settled within the next two years. The peo ple chose Dunne to settle It for them. While the settlement of the street car question was perhaps the crown ing achievement of Judge Dunne's ac tivities as mayor, it was not the only thing he accomplished for the city. Ho secured for Chicago the first en abling act from the State legislature under which the rate of gas could be fixed by tho city and through the oper ation of that law he had the price of gas to the consumers reduced from ono dollar to eighty-five cents per ono thousand cubic feet. Judge Dunne reorganized the water department of the city of Chicago and placed it upon a sound business basis. When ho became mayor ho found that the packers at the stock yards were getting water at the flat rate of four cents per one thousand gallons and that tho other two million Inhabitants paid rate varying from six to ten cents. The smaller consumer paid tho higher price. Judgo Dunno Insisted that there be passed an ordinance fix ing tho rate at the uniform price of seven cents per one thousand gallons for all consumers of water, and after the City Council had acted favorably upon his recommendation and tho city had readjusted Its water business up on tho basis of tho new not price, It quickly became apparent that not only did tho smaller consumer make an appreciable saving, but that tho city's revenue from Its water system was larger than ever before. He InsUtuted for tho first time tho srjJtem of having the city represented before the Hoard of Assessors and the Hoard of Review, and through efforts of tho staff attached to tho city law department dug up millions of back taxes which had been surreptitiously withheld by wealthy tax dodgers. From this source alone tho city treas ury gained between $3,000,000 and $4,-00,04). BBSa RWMr EDITORIAL AND PERSONAL Pungent Paragraphs Comment on the Judgo Dunne secured needed In creases In the pay of flremen nnd po licemen and for tho army of laborers employed upon the public works of Chicago. Judgo Dunne kept his finger upon tho pulse of tho government firmly and continually. When tho Judgo en tered the city hall tho treasury wob bankrupt. When he left It, the treas ury held $4,000,000 cash surplus. Judgo Dunne was married to Eliza beth J. Kelly of Chicago, at Chicago In 18S1. They have had thirteen chil dren, of whom nino arc still living. Ills past record Is n guarantee for the future. DEMOCRATIC HARMONY. The two wings of the local Demo cratic party havo Joined together un der the following agreement: "James J. Townsend shall be chair man nnd James S. Mclncrney shall be secretary of the general campaign committee. "Tho same persons shall bo respec tively chnlrraan and secretary of tho executive committee.

"A campaign commltteo shall bo or ganized In each ward of Chicago con sisting of tho duly elected precinct committeemen and In addition there to twenty persons, ten of whom shall bo affiliated with each of the two or ganizations in tho ward." PROTECTINQ THE PEOPLE. It la about time that the state of Illinois came to the rescue of the people and passed a law prohibiting the misuse of the name bank. At matters stand at present, any one with money enough to hire and equip a store can paint the name bank on the front windows and so licit and receive deposits without let or hindrance. Every year hundreds of people loso their savings through the failure or collapso of one or more of these wildcat institutions. Legitimate banks which are In themsolvos a guarantee of security, are passed by by thousands of sim ple and gullible people who are charmed by tho advertisements and cunning allurements of men who never did any legitimate banking and who nover Intended to do any. The Chicago Eagle has often re ferred to this matter before and It again urge3 upon tho legislature and upon men who are seeking seats In tho general assembly, the necessity for passing a law protecting legiti mate banks and prohibiting illegiti mate ones.

How the people of Chicago do suffer from that Bell phone!

Harrison in April, 1899, six months later promoted to deputy com missioner of public works, and eight een months later again advanced to tho position of commissioner of pub lic works, and reappointed in 1903. During his administration of this of flco he supervised somo of Chicago's great public Improvements, such as building some of the first bascule bridges, which did away with center piers, among them being the North Western avenue and Clybourn place bridges. These bridges were designed In tho department of public works, thus saving the city the heavy royalty of about $20,000.00 usually paid for plans and supervision. Tho great intercepting sower along Lake Michigan from 39th streot to 71st street was also built under his supervision, and was successfully completed. This was the first great improvement undertaken by the city by direct or day labor, and at Its com pletion had not only saved the city thousands of dollars under the low est bidder, but there were no law suits nor claims for extras.

At tho end of his term he turned over to tho city of Chicago $234,110.39 net, as interest after all office ex penses and his own compensation had been deducted, thus earning for tho citizens of Chicago over $100,000.00 more .than had ever been earned dur ing the term of a former city treas urer.
