Treasurer of Milk Wagon Drivers'
Union of Chicago Goes Wrong.
C. J. Camp, secretary-treasurer of
the Milk Wagon Drivers' Union of
Chicago has been deposed from office,

that he is short $20,000 in his acconts.
No definite statement could be ob

money for. He denied that he was fi

with it," said President Neer. "Camp's
plan consisted in using two bank
books, one bogus and the other genu

Charles Wilbrandt, a member of the
and prominent in teamsters' circles.
"In less than a year the safe and ma
chinery movers, the hay and grain
teamsters, the bakery drivers, the tea
and coffee drivers and the truck
drivers have had funds of the'ir organi

requested to assist such bona fide la

SAME OLD STORY.
Rube Ogl'e3by, an ex-brakeman who
lost a leg in an accident and never
got a cent of damages from the rail
