GRAND LODGE OF SORROW
The Hearst-Harrison "Har
mony machine had a monkey
wrench tossed into its workings
by the Sullivanites at the pri
maries vesterdav. and tndav wail-
9 ing among the wounded in the
City Hall busted the well-known
"harmony" into sad discord.
Aid. John A. Richert, pet of
the administration, was defeated
for the nomination for city treas
urer by 5,027 votes. A. W. Peter
son received the Republican nom
ination, and Charles W. Modder
well was the choice of the Pro
gressives. For judge of the Superior court
John M. O'Connor, Democrat ;
Homan E. Tinsman, Republican,
and Henry W. Leman, Progres
sive, were nominated, Hearst's
friend, Maher, being left out in
For city clerk, Francis D. Con
nery, Democrat; W. F. Peters,
Republican, and Joel F. Longe
necker, ' Progressive, were the
successful candidates! Hearst's
man, Coffey, also ran.
Socialist nominees, who had no
opposition, were: Judge of Su
perior court, W. C. Benton; city
treasurer, T. J. Vind; city clerk,
R. H. Howe.
P Hearst-Harrison leaders claim
to have nominated 19 aldermen to
14 for the Sullivanites. Harrison
is claiming such men as V. J.
Schaeffer of the twenty-second
ward, who, a few days ago, de
clared that if Andy Lawrence was
not kicked out of the Democratic
party it would be wrecked.
Manny Abrahams was put over
by the city hall in the twentieth,
defeating Aid. Dennis Egan, but
Egan will contest the election.
Aid. W. F. Ryan of the thirty
fourth ward was the only other
alderman defeated for re-election,
W. J. Held winning through sup
port from the H.-H. crowd.
Aid. Ellis Geiger was renom
inated in the twenty-first. Stan
ley Kunz, in the sixteenth, was re
nominated, despite H.-H. opposi
tion or because of it.
In Republican and Progressive
ranks there was slight interest
in the election, the Republican
machine being somewhat out of
order, and few of the contests
were close. The feature of the
Republican fight was the nom
ination of former Aid. B. W.
Snow in the seventh ward. His
name did not appear on the bal
lots, but was written in by voters.
His plurality was 1,119.
Aid. Capitain in the twenty
fifth won easily, as did Aid. Ut
patel, who ran on the progressive
ticket in the fifteenth ward.
Civil Service Commissioners F.
Greer and G. J. Tatge, who were
fired by President McCormick
yesterday, held a "rump meeting,"
of the board this afternoon. Fired
County Atty Chindlon for alleged
B. Rubenstein, 2038 Lemoyne
St., missing since Monday Police
Harold Skoglund, 8, 947 Wells;
st., slightly hurt by car. Fender'
picked him up.
