McKean, The Boss, p. 30, states “Frank Hague was elected constable, but the details of the election are now so obscure as to defy unraveling.” Fortunately, this writer managed to find the ward breakdown of the vote for constable in the general election, which took place April 14, 1896. They were as follows:
    Precinct William Ryan (R) Frank J. Hague (D)
    1 106 242
