AS GREAT OF &ooney Employed Pedigo to Work For Thompson For Supreme Court Mt Carmel. 111., Oct. 12.—(UP.)— Hammering away at the administration of Floyd E. Thompson, democratic candidate for governor, as Rock Island county state's attorney, Charles W. Hadley, of Wheaton, as- general, was on rec- foday a»" asserting that Hock id coSgftlUoriB while. Thompson Mild office there "grew worse from year to year until law and order practically had broken down." Hadley was the principal speaker at a republican mass meeting here tost night. 'During the' nock laluncl vice .investigating he was a special attorney general. The Rock Island scandal has become the headline topic of the battalion of republican speakers stump- Ing the state for Louis L. Emmerson, republican candidate for governor. Hadley covered here the same ground as had State Senator James J. Barbour and Thomas Marshall, of Chicago, indictment expert, in previous speeches. Few Prosecutions "A search of the Rock Island county court records during the Thompson administration will show few real prosecutions of notorious offenders," Hadley said. "Nothing developed in the investigation to show that Thompson attempted to suppress the notorious Rock Island News or to prosecute Looney, its publisher and owner. What the Investigation did show was that the chief of police was Thomp- con's chief investigator; that, they were close personal friends as well w political friends; that Cox's picture adorned the wall of the den in Thompson's home; that Cox was very active in the candidacy of Thompson for Justice of the supreme court, as was Looney. The records also disclose that the first time Looney ever met Pedigo, the keeper cjf a notorious resort, was when caihe~"to~eoifpI6y PedlglF to work for Thompson on election day. F$di£O was indicted with Looney, Cost and others, with Cox convicted o* conspiracy, and by the supreme court granted a new trial at the tame time as Cox." .

Mellon told a radio audience lost night that the republican presidential candidate la well qualified to carry on the "constructive" policies of the present Rd> mirdBtrfttion. Delivering into the mieroptftBl at station WRC here the second political speech of his life, the veteran treasury secretary said that in the final analysis there Is only one issue in this campaign—"whether the leadership offered by the republican or by the democratic party is better qualified to assume the burden of carrying on the government and of solving the problems which will arise In the next four years. "The democratic ciuidldats has told you what he professes to do," Mellon sold. "The republican candidate, Mr. Hoover, Is in the fortunate position of being able to tell you not only what he will do but what he and the administration, of which he has been an important part, have already done. He offers you an unparalleled record of constructive achievement; and, on that record, he and the republican party ask for your continued confidence an4 support. > Cite* The Record. "What has that record been? In the first place. 4t has been a complete fulfillment of the promise which the republican party made that the government should be administered economically and In accord with accepted business principles, and that the affairs of the country should be put on a sound basis, BO that confidence might return and the march of progress might be resumed after the long interval of the war. "That the adrnlnlstratloii has Sde^gbod 'lU"pfoinis¥""ii best attested by the fact that today the finances both of the government and of the country are in a aound condition.

The nation has been given the benefit of a protective tariff; and during the entire period the country has moved steadily forward, getting further and further away from the unsettled conditions which prevailed in 1921. when the present republican sdmlitration took office.

Impartial observers have viewed tariff planks of the 192S platforms as closely approrobing each other. The democrats lor the first Urns havr thrown Info the discard their earlier theory of tariff-for-revenue- only nnd the republicans have hammered upon the protective tariff as the surest means of safeguarding tho workers nnd the farmer against foreign competition. In June, it looked to many ta though the two parties were too cio«> together for much of a row on this issue. Suddenly To Fore. But events of the past few days have brought the tariff suddenly to the fore for both parties.

Ogden Mills, assistant secretary of treasury, declared Smith was on tha defensive In the tariff controversy. These incidents served to convince political authorities here that the tariff, long a matter without special public appeal ta campaigns, was to be effered up as a mighty Issue In the last weeks of the presi-* dential battle.
