of gotting a Dock Coinmlsslonershlp. But Boyle
was one of the few distrlrt leadera who had sldod
Wlth John C. Bheehan, and he has only pald the
penalty of hls mlstake.
Although he talkad Of hls troubles, he d!d not
eomplaln with bttterneee, for to do that wouid
have been to offend beyond hope of rehabilita

Into the m'.dst of hls eOUTttan now and then

The departure of Carroll never would hava
been known or chron'.o'od but for a funny en
c.ountor a few mlnutts latar. The Mayor-olect
had not vlslted the hotel, and two reportera

"Judga Vnn Wyrk?" He was promptly admlt
