The Contrast Between Sweitzer 's Vote and That Given to Cermak for Bailiff Was Great Very John Patrick Gibbons Ib going to bo nominated (or Sheriff by tlio Demo crats. He is popular with all Democrats. Tony Cermak, who Is opposed to him, has always been 'popular with the Cermak party. His followers are for Cermak only. It figures count for anything. Six years ago when Cermak was a candidate for bailiff of the Municipal Court, his ward, the Twelfth, cast the following voto: Cermak, Dem 5,785 . Klnsella, Rep 1,415 Louck, Prog! 984 Ccrmak's plurality 4,370 When Sweitzer, who Is now a run ning mate of Mr. Cermak on tho pri mary ticket, was u candidate for mayor in 1915, Cermak's ward, tho Twolfth, returned tho following voto on election day: .Thompson, Rop. ., 9,157 ,MSweltzer,-Dom. ftti c,!4' Thompson's plurality 11.993 Oh, how they did throw It into Sweitzer In Cermak's ward. That Is tho reason so many of Swoltzer's friends and admirers aro going to voto for John Patrick Gib bons for tho Democratic nomination for sheriff on primary day Septem ber 11. John P. Gibbons, 944 Husii street, who filed for tho Democratic nomina tion for sheriff, tho same ofllco being sought by John Patrick Gibbons of tho Sixth ward, has withdrawn from the contest. S. GIBBONS WILL WIN OVER CERMAK Tony Cermak looks llko a suro loser at tho coming primary for tho Demo cratlc nomination for Sheriff. This vlow Ib based upon tho poor showing ho made at the primary in 1912, beforo his United Societies la bel became shop worn. He wub running at that time for the nomination for Chlof Bailiff of the Municipal Court. Backed by a powerful organization ho only polled 47,000 votes for tho nomination out of 83,821 votes cast at the primary. In other words if tho Democrats opposed to his nomination had united on one man Cermak would have been beaten by 36,494 votes. Hero aro tho figures on tho primary voto for tho nomination tor Chief Halllff of tho Municipal Court in 1912: Anton J. Cormak, 47,327. John M. Collins, 11,446. Joseph Groin, 13,905. James M.
