GIBBONS, Democrat Talked of for City Treasurer BAR WORK FINE The Chicago Bar Association Works Overtime to Increase the Number of Judges. It Has Too Many Members Who Are Growing Irksome Waiting For Soft Jobs. Disgust with tho methods of tho so-called Chicago Bar Association, Is spreading to all classes nml among people ot nil shades of political opin ion. Tho following statement by Har old L. lckes, tho Progressive lender and member of tho highly respected law firm of Itlchberg, lckes & Rich berg, is cntiBlng much comment throughout the city: "As a member of tho Chicago Bar Association I trust that organization will discontinue Its practice ot having Its members vote at bar primaries on candidates for Judgeships," said lckes. "in view of tho strong partisanship displayed by this organization in the recent and other bar primaries, it is too much to sny that, Instead of fur nishing a guide to the voters by which they may uplift tho bench by select ing fit and proper candidates for Judgeships, tho organization has be come an actual obstacle to tho ex pression ot an independent and dis criminating vote on tho Judges. "The growing suspicion that tho Chicago Bar Association is largely made up ot Republicans, and, with in dividual variations, will always cast the largest number of votes for a Republican candidate for Judge, is borne out by the results of the last bar primary. As an expression of honest, Individual opinion of mem bers of tho association tho bar pri mary vote Is utterly worthless. Tho voto docs give a line on how many Republicans, Democrats, Progressives and Socialists thero aro in the bar association, but it tells nothing more. "If any ovldenco wero necessary to make clear tho fact that tho bar association Is merely playing into tho hands of tho Dcncen-Rcpubllcan ma chine It would be found that tho un warranted and unauthorized Action of tho committee having charge ot tho ballot cast by tho bar association beforo tho primaries. In announcing tho result ot tho voto this commlttoo In spite of n well-established prece dent, took upon Itself to announco merely tho winners at that bar pri mary, without giving tho number of votes cast for each man. It was frankly stated that the reason for do ing tbls was that at tho first bar pri mary the Progressive voto would be larger than tho votes cast for tho Re publican and Democratic candidates. ".I would recommend to the bar as sociation that Instead of giving a pre tended impartial expression of its membership as to tho qualifications of various candidates for Judge it take up for early consideration the case of tho Republican candidate for Mu nicipal Court Judge, namely, Charles N. Goodnow, who received the high est number of votes at the recent bar primary and who, during the years that he has been upon the bench, has allowed his name to bo used in a firm name, Ferguson & Goodnow, that is actively engaged In the practice ot the law. "This Is the same gentleman who went to Springfield as a member of the legislature after the passage of the notorious Allen law, of whom the Chicago Tribune, In an editorial of Jan. 3, 1899, said: 'If there are any of thoso representatives elected on anti-Allen law Issuo who aro going to vote to nominate an Allen law man for speaker because Lorlmer and Jnmteson orders them to, let 'them do their pledge-making in public and not behind tho screen of a secret ballot.' " Governor Dunne's dates for his speaking tour In behalf ot Mr. Sullivan are announced. He will talk at Carlln vlllo and Bloomlngton Oct. 20, at Ef fingham and Bellevlllo Oct. 22, Jack sonville Oct. 24, Danville Oct. 27, Kan kakee Oct. 28 and Cairo Oct. 29. Judge Joseph S. LaBuy has made a grand record as judge of the Munic ipal court. "Thomas F. Scully, for County Judge" is the legend on many buttons worn in Chicago. Judge Thomas F, fecuiiy oi tne Mu nicipal. Court, one of the ablest law yers In Chicago, will be elected Judge of the County Court in November by a large majority. Henry Stuckart makes a good im pression wherever he goes among the people. He will receive a big ma jority ot tho vote for county treasur er next month. Thousands of Republicans and oth ers linvo signed requests to William Hale Thompson asking him to be a candidate for Mnyor. Judge John P. McGoorty continues to gain the approbation of everybody for his work In the Circuit court. Jiulgo Joseph Sabath ot tho Munic ipal Court will bo a strong candidate for Judge ot the Circuit Court next summer. The Progressives showed a keen ap preciation of the needs of the Sanitary District when they refused to endorse Wallaco G. Clark .'or re-election. Tho only people who will benefit by tho "boulevard link" aro very high salaried City Hall tax eaters and dead-beat nutomobilo owners. The poor taxpayor pays tho freight. If Chicago votes "dry" next spring what Is going to pay tho $7,000,000 now derived from saloon licenses and invested In a police force? Judge Thomas F. Scully has made a grand record in tho Boys' Court. sbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbW. -aa,,BJsysBl4PNBaNBaNBaNBaNBaVjBi bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbT fJV BPTBaVJaVjIllllH BB.1111B HHUb1b.111111111111111111H BaVjBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBsk VIBjBjHBjBjBjH BaJjs'js'jB'js'jB'js'jm' "J" liJiJiJBaJjSBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBH ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssW - v !.jiBa"Ja"Ja"Ja"Ja"Ja"JBa"Ja"Ja"Ja"Ja"Ja"Ja"Ja"J BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBk BsbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbI BaTaTaTaTaTaTaTaTaTaTaTaTaTaTaTalt "zZ BaTaTaTaTaTaTaTaTaTaTaTaTaTaTaTJ BaJs'js'jB'jSBBBBBBBBBBBHl.aBaV 'BafljBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBsH ROGER C.
