UtNEEN OF ILLINOIS
The Governor Has Been a Strong
Force on the Good Side of
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
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
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
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
“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.”

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
—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
