campaign was mainly to attend to the
financial end of tho fight. The Job 6f
city chamberlain pays $12,000 per year,
but its possibilities In a financial way
are tremendous. Hyde did not attract
much attention in his office until the
affairs of tho Carnegie Trust company

tion In return for making tho trust
company a depository for city funds.

ing woodworkers who were charged
