John E. Trager's office over the man
ner in which the Tribune released
the annual budget report the other
According to all ethics that budget
should not have been printed in any
newspaper until Comptroller Trager
had reported it to the city council
Thursday afternoon, but the Tribune
printed it Thursday morning.
Trager immediately began a still
hunt for the man who had turned
over a copy of the budget to the Trib
une. The W. J. Hartman Printing
Company, who secured the contract
because they do work cheaply by
means of an open ship, were called
to account for it.
There was much wrangling. Then
the Hartman officials passed the buck
to a city employe, Troyer by name,
and said this man had taken the re
port to the Tribune office. He also
said the man had been discharged.
