D'ANDREA FILES SUIT AGAINST
HERALD AND TRIBUNE
One hundred thousand dollar libel
suits were slapped on the Chicago
Tribune and Chicago Herald as a re
sule of their treatment of Anthony
D'Andrea, Democratic candidate for
alderman in the 19th ward, yester
day. Trouble started when D'Andrea
came out for the aldermanic position.
He is an official of the Hodcarriers'
union.
The Tribune started after D'Andrea
a few weeks ago. A big story harped
about his being an ex-convict. The
Trib hinted that the candidate had
served time, but did not at first tell
his side of the story.
When facts became known, it was
shown that D'Andrea had plead guilty
of counterfeiting over ten years ago,
to save his wife, in a delicate condi
tion, from the penitentiary.
Bogus coin had been found on her
when federal sleuths broke into the
D'Andrea. home on Archer road. She
said later that D'Andrea's partner
had left it in the house.
He was pardoned, by President
Roosevelt soon after his two-year
term started when his friends told
the executive the circumstances of
his admission of guilt
The Trib never did tell the whole
story. But when an Italian friend of
D'Andrea's, a saloonkeeper named
Frank Lombardi of 1120 Yt. Taylor
st, was shot dead by three men, the
Tribune printed another rap at
D'Andrea.
"Widow Blames Aid of Ex-Convict
Candidate D'Andrea For Crime" the
headhne over the story read. Then
the widow was quoted as saying that
her husband had been slain because
he played the -other side of the po
litical game that D'Andrea mixed in.
D'Andrea says Mrs. Lombardi never
said the things the Trib quoted her
on and that he and Lombardi were
good friends although political oppo
sites. The Herald came out Wednesday
morning with a similar quote from
the daughter of the slain man. Then
the Herald called D'Andrea a black
hander. o o
