The answers to these are not definite and readily provable, like the statistics concerning his bank and , brokerage accounts. Nevertheless . much has'&ee'n" learned. '- '•' . Lingle had worked for the Tribune .for 18 years. He was one of the "gum shoe" artists—a reporter whose value to his paper arose from contact, with policemen, politicians and underworld characters. He was friendly with high police officials. He .knew Al Capone and scores of lesser, gangland luminaries.' Before the war, 'when the notorious. Jim Colosuno had a cafe on Wabash avenue,. Urigle frequented the place and became a friend of Johnny To rrlo, then a minor figure in the vice district, and Al Capone then an even more negligible red light district plug-ugly. When these latter two'rose to-power, Lingle kept his contacts with them. Al Capone'! recent gift to the reporter of a diamond belt buckle Is a matter 'of common knowledge. What does all of this lead up to Simply (his: that Lingle, enjoying the confidence of high police offl- . cials and gangsters alike, apparently found some way of turning these friendships into cash. His money, In short, came from gangland, in return for real or landed favors which his position made It possible for him to promise or give. And the murder? It 13 generally believed that the killing traces back • to the North Side gang—the. "opposition psrtv,' headed by "Bugs" Moran and Joe Alello, which has been fighting desperately ever-since the St. Valentine's Day massacre to avert ex tlnctlon at the hands of Capone and his South Side mob.. •While Capone was in prison in Pennsylvania, it Is said, the North Side group made overtures to Lingle. With his help, they wanted to extend their operations both-in the Loop district and elsewhere. Lin «le, it Is believed, listened to them and took Uuvr money, promising k see that UK tracks were cleared for them. But Ca#*o« onu *ick from Phil The'first two patients, he declared, .to be given this'treatment have • been. pronounced "sane but have remained at the'lnstitution tc be employed in the. laboratory at aides in -treating other patients.

Rnche climaxed- the campaign, not long. ago, by clos- ng Cook county three dot racing racks. - . Hints J30.W6 Payment .These tracks, all . gang-owned. were enormously profitable. The South Side-gang-as well as the North Side.gan^suflered. when they were shut down; but the North Siders were.the ones who felt'that Lingle had played them false. It is even reported that the North Std- ers had paid Lingle $30,000 to mak? sure that their track would not be bothered. Lingle, • apparently, knew - that there was trouble ahead. It Is said tliat two or three days before ha was killed, he was standing on the sidewalk in front of a Loop hotel, when £ blue sedan came crulstn? slowly along, close to the curb. Lingle jumped back and ran into the hotels-fearing, apparently, .that the car held a firing squad. At about-, the same time he told detective friends that he was being shadowed. The Investigation has shown, fairly conclusively, that Lingle had been declared "in" on certain underworld sources of revenue, and that some complication arising out of thjs graft led to his death. As one investigator remarked,'"Once you take money from one of these gangs, you're a member for life." Llngle simply got. In too deep. Back of It, of course, lies another set of facts, thus far undiscovered. Did Lingle really have the Influence he boasted? Did he actually exercise it? If so, what public of ficlals were in with him on -the defll, splitting the profits with him and perverting the course of justice at his behest? if these facts come out, Chicago will know a great deal more about UK reoon for the underworld's dominance than it has ever known priverGfoyt; ' "jyij-!- and-'Mrs.- -'Alfred•-•".
