HIS CAUSE FOR KICK
New York, March 17. Because he
had to cook, his own meals and all
that time suffered from indigestion
Julius Kraus asked the court to re
cuse ahmony to his wife.
THE NEWSPAPER LINE-UP
The newspaper line-up in the local
campaign is interesting. The News,
Herald, Examiner and American are
playing the Sullivan-Sweitzer game,
the Post is supporting Thompson,
the Journal leans toward Thompson
and the Tnb is feeling its way. If it
sees there is a good chance to put
Thompson over it will probably swing
that way, so as to put one over on
the Herald and Examiner.
Roger Sullivan, Victor P. Lawson
and James Keeley are close friends
and the News is generally lined up
with the traction interests. Keeley's
paper is closely connected with the
Sam Insull interests. Hearst has evi
dently formed an alliance with Sulli
van. What the newspapers are doing
doesn't always appear so plain in the
editorial columns as in the alleged
news reports of the campaign. The
Sullivan-Sweitzer papers give Sweit
zer the lead in their news stories and
the Thompson papers play it the oth
er way. The object is to influence
readers without them knowing what
Is happening to the thinker.
Lawson -at the News is especially
bitter toward Thompson. One reason
aside from the traction connection of
the News is a personal bitterness be
cause two years ago Thompson in
public speeches referred to Victor P.
Lawson as a taxdodger and showed a
tax check showing that Lawson paid
somethingtover $14 on his ?1,500,000
mansion, and compared what Mil
lionaire Lawson paid withwhat the
owner of a small home paid.
Nobody knows yet which way the
Trib cat is going to jump.
