DEMOCRATS NOW IN CONTROL
OF CITY COUNCIL
Democrats came back -with a roar
yesterday, scattering the Republi
cans before them like a band of
crapshooters running from the cops.
When the day ended the donkey
party had elected the city treasurer,
city clerk and 22 aldermen. The city
council now stands: Democrats, 43;
Republicans, 24; Socialists, 3.
Socialists put over a surprise in
the 9th ward, where Chas. V. John
son defeated Aid. Hiram VanderbilL
Aid. Kennedy in the 27th ward rolled
up, more votes than the rest of his
opponents combined, in spite of the
Tribune knocking. Just to rub it
into the Trib, the 27th ward voters
gave Kennedy the highest plurality
in the city.
Democrats succeed Republicans
in the 3d, 8th, 13th, 14th, 15th, 17th,
18th, 20th, 24th, 31st, 34th and 35th

zer narrowly escaped defeat.

independently in the 18th ward,
backed by the good government
forces, easilly defeated the powerful
Barney Grogan after one of the most
riotous elections in the 18th ward,
which culminated in the murder of a
negro poll worker.
Rob't Hall McCormick proved an
easy winner in the 21st ward! One
surprise was the defeat of Aid. Sitts
by Adamkiewictz in the 17th. Joe
Kostner won in the 34th with over
EXPLAINING FORUM LETTER
ABOUT DR. SCHOOLMAN.
How the similarity in names can
sometimes reflect on a man is illus
trated in the story of a letter that
appeared in The Public Forum Mon
day. The letter was signed "One of
"The Patient," a girl, accused a
Dr. Schoolman of the West Side med
ical dispensary of pulling her hair,
which she wore short, and accusing
her of being an I. W. W.
Dr. Noah Schoolman of the staff
of the Illinois Charitable Eye and
Ear Infirmary was embarrassed by
the letter. He is in no way connect
ed with the West Side dispensary. A
nephew, Dr. Edw. Schoolman, is.
The latter explains that the girl
applied fior an examination at the
dispensary and that he turned her
over to an associate physician. The
latter, Dr. Edw. Schoolman says, in
a joking but kindly manner touched
her hair and remarked that "I. W.
W.'s wear their hair short."
The incident, trivial enough in it
self, has been trying in its conse
quences to both Dr Schoolmans.
