The Union takes it upon itself to
contradict the Argus in its statement
of the breach of confidence on the
part of the mayor toward Aid
Schroeder, in which his honor de
liberately broke his promise to Mr.
senroeaer made two years ago to

Mr. Schroeder, and who is as indig.

as Schroeder himself is. The mavor's
present disregard of the agreement
with Mr. Schroeder is a flagrant
breach of confidence which no effort
on the part of the Union can explain
