Considerable merriment followed
Aid. Schwartz' Vote in favor of St
Patrick and the Irish.
The windup of the "treason"
charges against Aid. Kennedy, first
preferred by the Chicago Tribune,
and seconded by a Third ward club
woman whose sole evidence against
the alderman was what the Tribune
and Examiner faked, came yesterday
when a complete vindication was
handed the councilman.
The resolution of the judiciary
committee setting forth just what
Aid. Kennedy did say about revolu
tions, food hogs and munition kings,
was read into the council record, so
that no paper could misquote it.
