Thompson's Fate In Balance
"Big Bill" Thompson, third
term mayor of Chicago, is not In
volved in the primary, his term
having three years to run. but his
fate la regarded as at stake virtu
ally as much aa if he himself
faced the voters.
The chief contests all down the
line from United States to ward
committeeman are between candi
dates of strict adherence to his
leadership and those classified lis
cohorts of Charles S. Deneen, Illi
nois' only United States senator.
Thompson shares factional lead
ership with .Robert E. Crowe,
Cook county's state's attorney
seeking a third term, and Gover
nor Len Small, likewise asking re
nomination for a third term.- --
Governor Small is opposed by
Louis L. Emmerson. secretary of
state for the last 1 2 years and
Crowe has as an opponent Judge
John A. Swanson.
The third outstanding contest is
between Colonel Frank L. Smith,
twice refused his seat by the
United States senate after ap
pointment and election, and Otis
F. Glenn, a Chicago lawyer and
former state senator.
Scandal Charges Have Effect
The personality of Governor
Small who as governor wae tried
and acquitted of diverting the in
terest on state funds while he was
treasurer of the commonwealth,
and who later lost a civil court de
cision and repaid the state approx
imately 1600,000, and the action
of Colonel Smith of resigning af
ter his second senate rejection and
again seeking a mandate from the
people, were regarded as political
developments extraordinary.
Then, to lift the primary furth

Deneen stalwart. "Diamond Joe"

the homes of Deneen and Swanson
were bombed and brought a verit
