Lowdon of Illinois looks llko a sure wlnnor for tho republican nomination for president and Chi- ccftftmustwake up ,and.thuHt!olf., (t wW7 Uto oiMilWmu who cq1itufcpli."ljr ? gntlonf, art doclaring for Lowdon,' nnd along tho Atlantic coast tho Illi nois executive Is considered thu most satisfactory candldato thus fav considered. This Is tho word brought to Chi cago, Monday, by Fred W. Upham, treasurer of tho republican natlonul committee, who has been spending tho last two weoks in tho Now Eng land states, Now York and Now Jcr soy. Ho Is In charge of tho cam paign to get tho big convention for Chicago, and whllo talking with tho eastern leaders of tho party naturally heard many expressions as to tho presidency. Those .who tnlkcd with Mr. Upham today woro Impressed with tho re port mado by him of tho Lowdon talk ho heard whllo away. "I think Low- den Is going to bo nominated," ho said to his callors at his offices In tho Conway building, nnd tho wny ho said it showed ho meant It. "I heard Lowden talk In Maine. Massachusetts and Now York," said Mr. Upham. "Tho only places 1 heard Gon. Wood's named mentioned woro Now Hnmpshlro and Now Jor soy. In my conferences regarding tho national conventionand I only talked to tho big mon In the party I heard many expressions tn vorablo to our governor. Tho Ills' politicians In tho east seem to havo mndo up thoir ml mis that Lowden Is tho best man thus far nnmed. Tho sentlmout for Lowden Is growing tremendously all through tho oast. That I learned from personal talks and Information J received Indirectly." If tho national convention Is held In Chicago It Is ballovcd It would hn n great aid to tho Lowden campaign. If the republican connnlttoo is will ing to let tho big gathorlng come to Chicago It might ho considered that it Indicated a sentiment among tho national committeemen not unfavorable- to Lowden, Mr. Upham sayn Chicago lias a chance to win tho grcnt gathorlng, Uit It moans hard work and no lotup until tho national commltteo meets in December. "Thoro novor was a tlmo when thoro woro so many cltloa socking tho convention," said Mr. Upham. "Sovoral cltloa think that thoy havo tho fight won. Phlladolphla wants tho mooting, as do Clovoland, Dotrolt, Indianapolis, St. Louis, Kansas City, St. Paul and San Francisco, Theso cltios aro pulling ovory string. If Chicago wins it will bo by a most sorlous effort." Mr. Upham was asked about busi ness conditions In tho east. "Prosperity ovorywhoro," ho re plied. "Tho pooplo thoro novor he foro had so much monoy to spend. Wo nro tho bankers of tho world, and tho cheapost thing In this country now Is monoy."
