EXAMINER MADE DEFENDANT
IN ANOTHER SUIT
Hearst's Chicago Examiner, with a
$200,000 suit already filed against it
in the superior court Monday,
now faces criminal libel proceedings.
. The action was started by Capt
Edward W. Morrison, one-time own
er of the Morrison hotel and holder
of valuable real estate. The action
followed the printing of the story of
Morrison's transfer of $200,000 to his
attorney, Jas. R. Ward. The latter
is representing Morrison in his ac
tion against the Examiner.
In the Sunday Examiner Prank T.
Fowler, speaking for members of the
family unfriendly to Edward, was
quoted as saying that Morrison had
done away with the will of his father,
James Morrison, who died in 1868. i
"We intend to teach the Examine?
that it cannot get away with adver
tising any one they please in the
manner they treated Mr. Morrison,"
said Ward. "I am aready preparing
to start the criminal action and I will
probably do so within a day or two.
"The Tribune and the American
were also offensively one-sided in the
way they handled the story and we'll
hit them, too. Mr. Hearst can't bluff
us! We're going through.
"The truth of the matter is this:
Morrison's father died in 1868. Edw.
W. Morrison's title to the bulk of the
estate was confirmed, with the ex
ception of the widow's dower right
This will was probated in 1869. But
the will and record was destroyed in
the Chicago fire in 1871. In 1873 the
will was again probated under the
burnt decree law in the county court.
It is now a matter of record."
Willie Hearst has been getting his
bumps in the Chicago courts and if
Ward makes good his threat to start
criminal action it will be the biggest
wallop. First John F. O'Malley, North
Side political boss, collected $7,500
from Hearst for stories printed when
