L. A. and tile a tide esp due acknowledgement of the credit belonging to the liquor element for the election of George a. Cooke to the supreme Bench of Illinois is made on the first Page of this paper. The intended formal endorsement of or. Cookers candidacy by the liquor dealers protective association of Illinois at its convention held in Springfield a few Days before the election was called off at the last moment doubtless at the request of cookers friends but the word had been passed from one end of the line to the other that he was the liquor men a candidate and they gave him their solid support at the polls. The anti Saloon league has no apologies to make for calling Public attention to the Brazen interference of a discredited traffic in the election of a Man for the High office of supreme judge. Of All the offices in the gift of a free people that of judge should be kept untainted with suspicion and out of reach of All sinister influence. The hypocritical Assumption of Superior patriotism by the liquor people in not formally declaring themselves for Cooke does no to fool anybody not even the complaisant Springfield Register for the endorsement of judicial candidates supposedly favourable to the a personal Liberty idea is a favorite a a stunt of the United societies and other aggregations of to zoologists. Has anybody forgotten the Chicago judicial Campaign of last Spring or the notorious line up for Ben Pope of Duquoin the record of the anti Saloon league in relation to judicial elections like its record in other matters is an open Book and All men Are invited to read it and pass judgment upon it. It was distinctly stated in these columns during the Campaign Between Cooke and Mcclure that a the anti Saloon league asks no pledge of any judicial candidate except that he shall strive to be a just and upright judge. It does not require that he shall be an anti Saloon Man nor even a local option Man but Only that he shall stand like a Rock for the Observance of inasmuch As or. Cookers a political affiliations his past professional engagements and his legislative record were shown to be peculiarly acceptable to the Saloon crowd and this crowd was backing him with an enthusiastic unanimity that made every thoughtful citizen Ponder the question Why they were doing it the anti Saloon league raised the Issue of his fitness for the High office to which he aspired. It doubted the Wisdom of electing such a Man to such a position. It compared his record and his environment with those of his competitor and found the Odds so much in favor of or. Mcclure that it would have been Recreant to its duty had it not advised its friends to support him frankly stating the grounds on which that advice was based. No higher endorsement of the leagues course in this matter could be asked for than is found in this Manly declaration by the editor of the Pulton Democrat the exposure made last Friday by messes. Shields and Alexander of the anti Saloon league of Illinois of or. Cookers prominent share in the nefarious plotting in the 43d general Assembly to defeat the local option Bill compels the Democrat to withdraw its support from or. Cooke the democratic candidate for judge of the supreme court. We cannot honorable support or vote for any Man for any office under heaven who is a Friend of the liquor traffic and therefore an enemy of every family in Illinois. We Are humiliated in having thus far been ignorant of or. Cookers record in this matter. We cannot make better amends for having thus far ignorantly supported this gentleman for that High office. He does not belong to this senatorial District and our attention had not been called to his very objectionable record As a legislator and attorney. No local option Democrat can honorable vote for George a. Cooke. When a leading democratic paper deserts its own candidate in the midst of a Campaign on unchallenged facts presented by the anti Saloon league it is pretty Good evidence that the league is on the right track. Now that or. Cooke is elected let us All Hope that the responsibilities of his office will bring out the Best that is in him that every Man who voted for him believing him to be capable of trailing the judicial Ermine in the dirt and mire of Saloon politics will be disappointed and that in time he will come to be known As a just and upright judge. If he thus rises to the demands of his new position he will have no More Loyal supporter than the anti Saloon league of Illinois. The Saloon is a Public nuisance because it is destructive of the Public morals Public safety Public peace and Public health
