New York, .Inly 19. Republican
candidate Charles E. Hughes does not
intend to permit factional differences
in Illinois to jeopardize the success of
the ticket iu that state in the coming
election, ne mane tnis clear to a num
ber of C'nicngoans who called on him
today with a story of grief growing
out of the appointment of Harold
Ickes, . former progressive leader, to
the national campaign committee.
Among those who saw Hughes were
Mayor Thomas, Senator Lewrence Y.
Sherman, Snmuel Kttleson, corpora
tion counsel of Chicago, Robert Bath
bone, president of the Hamilton club,
and M. F. Kraftmiller, prisident of the
I'nion League club.
The burden of the Chicagoan's com
plaint is understood to be that as a re
sult of his appointment to the national
campaign committee, Ickes has en
deavored to assume a sort of state
leadership. The regular republican
organization objects to this. The ans
wer of Hughes is understood to have
been a statement as to the importance
of absolute unity in the coming iight
and a refusal to interfere in local cir
cles. At the same time it. is helievprl
that when ickes conies here to attend
the meeting of the committee he will
be told that his appointment carried
with it no recognition other than that
of a representative republican of his
state that the work he is expected to
aid in is national in scope and should
not cause internal troubles in Illinois.
Following nu hour's conference be
tween Hughes, Thompson and Senator
Sherman, the latter snM:
"Everything is settled. 1i Ickes
is good enough for the national com
mittee he is good enough for me. At
all events no dirty lineu is to be
washed in public."
"There was no trouble. Ickes was
quoted in newspapers as styling him
self the state leader, but that has been
explained. Undivided support will be
given Hughes ami he will be given a
great reception when he visits Chi
cago." Chairman Willcox and Hughes to
morrow will not only confer with the
campaign committee but will meet
with the senatorial committee from
i iisuisiKioii. rourieeu or ine seven-
itn-ii luemuers oi rne comniiuee are ex
pected to be here. The senatorial
committee consists of five members.
Among callers at Hughes headquarters
were former Gov. Stokes of -New Jer

senator Hemenwny of Indiana, audi
