UtNEEN OF ILLINOIS The Governor Has Been a Strong Force on the Good Side of American Life. WHAT THE NEWSPAPERS SAY. Fame of the Governor Has Gone Abroad in the Land. What is Said of the Candidacy of Adlai E. Stevenson for tiovrrnor of t he Slate of Illinois —The Primary. Illinois is the largest of the states west of the Alleghenies in population and commercially the most important. It is the chief railroad state, on ac count both of its mileage and the bas ing of freight rates at Chicago' and East St. Louis. All of the consolidated systems, including the Southern and the Louisville and Nashville of the southern group, cross its territory. In its relations with the Illinois Central railroad the state charged it was a duty of closely studying practical rail road problems. Chicago's troubles have drawn the state into an equally close study of municipal questions. Of all the executives of the Union, none, except tin* president of the TTnited States, has more to do with tlie wel fare of the whole country than the governor of Illinois. Governor 1 )eneen has been a strong force oti the good side of American life. During his administration the principal questions have been the ad ministration of state institutions— constituting a potent patronage and a large finance—the railroads, municipal improvement and highways. Ilis ac tive and courageous labors on these lines have been accompanied by efforts which have put new life into depart ments like the geological survey, the agricultural experiment station and the waterways commission. In the “constructive” work, which will be felt by future generations. Governor Deneen's services place him at the head of the list of executives who have held office in Illinois and among the most useful mcT of the country. He has been personally clean and aggres sive in it all. The Indicated nomina tion of Deneen by his party at the state primaries Saturday is a cause of satisfaction everywhere. In the ordi nary course of political decisions this year he will he again elected, and the far-spreading influence of Illinois will he directed for the uplifting of gov ernment standards throughout the country.—Philadelphia (Pa.) Ledger. « Stevenson Four Years Late. The statement of Mr. Stevenson that lie would place the state charitable in stitutions on a non-partisan basis if elected governor by the Democrats ap pears to appeal to some of the Repub lican editors as a joke. The Rockford Register-Gazette reminds Mr. Steven son that he is at least four years be hind Governor Deneen and the Repub lican party in the following editorial: j ne oner or Air. srevenson to place the state institutions of Illinois on a non-partisan basis if the state will only elect him governor lias been al ready anticipated by the present Re publican administration. The institu tions are today on a non partisan basis. Governor Deneen not only secured the enactment of a civil service law for the institutions but he respected the spirit of the law before it was placed on tlie statute books, by declining to All the places in the state service with bis own appointees. He respected the men and women already in the service as long as they showed their fitness and efficiency In their duties to the state. That is the very spirit of the non-partisan basis. Mr. Stevenson could not do differently if he had the power, without violating the civil serv ice law in letter or in spirit. “It would lie well for Mr. Steven son to read the civil service law, A careful perusal would convince him that lie, as governor, would have nothing to do with the apimintment of employes for the state benevolent In stitutions. He would have to keep his hands off.” *§*<!> <S* Appoint^ Non-Partisan Senator? “Hon. Adlai Stevenson, the Demo cratic candidate for the governorship says that if he Is elected to the office he will conduct it on a strictly non partisan basis. But supposing that there should he a vacancy in the Unit ed States senatorshlp? Supposing that one of the present incumbents should die? Then it will fall to the lot of Mr. Stevenson to appoint a senator. Tt is not within the bound of reason to be lieve that he will he non-partisan enough to appoint a Republican. lie will still believe that a Democrat is better fitted for that position than a Republican and lie will act according ly. It Is believed that lit- will take the same position regarding the state appointments. Unde Adlai has been a Democrat all his life. He was sudi in the palmy days of old when Stephen A. Dougins and Altrahnm Lincoln were stumping the state. It is not be lieved that he ever saw the time when he believed that a Republican could fill an office better than a Democrat. Can the leopard change its spots? Nay. Neither then can Adlai Stevenson change the tendencies of a lifetime. If the Republicans of this state want in the gubernatorial chair a man of Re publican convictions who will stand with his party in emergencies and who will give support and encouragement to Republican principles they will not vote for Adlai Stevenson or join any of his non-partisan dubs.”—Galesburg Republican-Register. 'H ^ Got Good Governor; Keep Him. The Galesburg Republican-Register hollDVDC in L'nmtinrr o rrr\r\,l when he has shown that he is master of the details of the office. In dis cus,sing the election of a governor lha Republican-Register says: “When Deneon became governor of Illinois he came from the office of state's attorney of Cook county which he had creditably filled, lie knew all about the duties of that office but he know comparatively little about tho duties of the office of governor. "It must take a governor some time to familiarize himself with all the du ties of his office, with all the details of the institutions committed to his charge, with all the minutiae of all the departments under his supervision. It takes some experience to acquire the needed efficiency. Mr. Doucen has four years of experience. For four years he lias been acquiring skill and knowledge. He began an ap prentice; he is now a master of the details. He discloses this in his treat ment of state affairs. "Why then dispense with him? II is not the policy of tlie good business man. It is not the practice of the average man when lie finds a trust worthy worker to part with him.” <Z> $ <g> Democrats Not Interested. The Southern Illinois Herald thinks that the primary vote itself is about the most convincing thing that can lie brought to the attention of the voters of the state, as it illustrates the deep interest the Republicans have in their candidates and the apathy shown by the Democrats. The Herald in sum ming ii]) the result said: "In the Illinois state primary the Republicans had two candidates for governor and tlie Democrats seven. The nominations for the head of th<> ticket were hotly contested and there were equal inducements on both sides for a full vote. The total Republican vote in Illinois on governor was 413, 52S and the total Democratic vote was 175,000. Mr. Deneen was nominated by his vote of 213,315, and a Demo cratic vote of 73.000 gave Mr. Steven son the nomination. Mr. Deneen had a majority; Mr. Stevenson fell consid erably short of getting half the Demo cratic vote east. The Republican pri mary vote in Illinois was more than twice as large as the Democratic vote.” <?» »*•. —rOgan County for Deneen. The Deneen forces are claiming 75 of the 101 counties of the state. In the list of counties assigned to Deneen, Logan Is classed as a Yates sounty. Logan county ought to be with the governor in this contest, and the probabilities are It will be.—Lin coln Herald.
