cago Examiner, to arrest the slugger
the policeman laughed at him.
When Krasny went to the ser
geant's office at the S. Chicago police
station to swear out a warrant for
the man who had beaten him up the
police told him if he had the Hearst
employe arrested that he would lose
his city permit to sell papers.
When the warrant was sworn out
the police did not serve it until Mrs.
Krasny, more than a week later,
made complaint to Chief Healey.
Such was the influence of Hearst's
paper on the police.
The case came to trial in "Judge
Rafferty's court yesterday and Paul
Brown, 8700 Buffalo av., the pugilistic
driver, was fined $10 and costs.
Brown delivered Examiners and
handled Saturday Evening Posts as a
side line. On the morning of March
2 Krasny, who sells papers at 92d and
Exchange av., told Brown he had
given him the wrong count of Posts
When Brown denied, Krasny called
Policeman John Lewe to the stand.
Lewe, it was told, counted the Posts
and found that Krasny was right in
Brown beat Krasny up. Dr. E. B.
Warpert, who attended the newsboy
while he lay off a week in a serious
condition at his home, 8929 Exchange
av., testified his wounds came near
resulting in blood poisoning and
blindness. He had deep gashes in
his head where he had been hit with
some kind of a billy.
Lewe would not arrest Brown, but
minded Krasny's stand while he went
to the police station" to get a warrant.
Attorney Clayton L. Pense handled
the case in court for Krasny.
Cardinal Gibbons says he wonders
how Billy Sunday makes such big
audiences hear him. The cardinal
never heard Billy roast an umpire. .
