Candidate Biography:


  • Legislative Altercation: Following a fight between Assemblyman-elect Kenneally and a retired showmaker named William Quane over $8 that Kenneally felt was owed to him, Quane was knocked to the ground and died of a skull fracture as a result. Kenneally was charged with manslaughter the same day. The case was dismissed in March 1899 because a judge found that although Kenneally had pushed Quane, there was "a lack of intent" to kill Quane.
