UNION MEN EXONERATED
This morning the Herald retracted
all of the articles which appeared
some months ago, charging three
business agents of the Carpenters'
union with graft. Peter Mraz, Thom
as Church and A. P. Warren were the
business agents named in a series of
stories, in which several of the big
contracting firms of the cty came
out an dtold how they had been ap
proached and asked for money by
these men, who, it vwas said, wanted
to betray their unions.
The investigation committee of
the Carpenters' district council yesterday-
made a long report saying
that the charges against its business
agents had not been substantiated
by facts and that the men had not
violated the trust placed in them by
the council, which, on bearing the re
port, exonerated them completely.
While all of the other .stories ac-
cusing the business agents appeared"
on the first or, last pages ot the Her
ald, this one, the retraction of the'
others, -was" printed oh page five and
probably was passed? unnoticed by'
hundreds who read the -false accusations.
