Police third degree, With its famed gold fish room— the swinging hose and the punching bag method— is kindergarten stuff compared with that of these hoodlums. One of the favorite torture methods In the past has been -to apply lighted eigaret butts to the sklft of the victim. His Agony only inspired more frequent applications until the underworld detectives learned what they Wanted to know. Usually a one-way fjde would end the proceeding. At other times the torture squads have mutilated their captives when seeking to obtain secrets. On occasion they have ' gouged out eyes in the most terrible of 'tortures. It all has come to be part of the law enforcement system,, and the detective plan, of the jungle type organization which rules Outside the law. Now, Pat Roche, chief investigator for. the state's attorney, advises that the gangs are establishing their own crematories so they may destroy their victims without trace. It was while looking for this crematory that Roche, Tuesday night, came upon a cache of dynamite used by the gangs in blow- Ing up their opponents' establishments. Concerning the crematory Roche Mid: v. ; . "My Information has come from reliable sources, i have been told that the novelty of the scheme and the ghastly safety of disposing of victims completely appealed to the leaders. "My conviction that it was true was strengthened by the dlsappeai;- ance of two men. One was Ben Bennett, a New York whiskey dealer, and the other William Hlggins, a St. Paul racketeer.". The police today had a /whole bevy of well known gangsters corralled, but there was little prospect that ttiey would get any evidence on which a prosecution might be basedl / It Was established thoroughly enough to satisfy the police, that Capone and Moran are in another of their battles to the death, and thuq far Capone has come off second best. He has lost some of his best gunmen in the crossfire of killings.
