"As a result," a Judiciary subcommittee was told, "ninny Indictments were returned, including an Indictment of the collector of Internal revenue In St. Louis, James P. Finiif.-'.in." The statement was made by Robert A. Collier, counsel for the subcommittee as It resumed an Inquiry into the St. Louis scandals that led to Finnegan's conviction last March 15 on charges of misconduct in office. Any "Interference?" Chariman Chclf (D-Ky) has announced the aim of the subcommittee Is to find out whether there was any ''Interference" with the grand Jury, Said Collier: "Alter three weeks ol deliberation, the grand Jury submitted to Judge Moore n so-called 'partial report' which Judge Moore character- tfx-d as 'astonishing' nnd 'a complete vindication 1 of the handling of tax cases In the nron for the past five years. Judge Moore also questioned whether the report was the grand Jury's own idea, or whether someone else's Idea, had been thrust upon it. "Prior to the submission of the report. Rills N.

Inserted his key turned the lock, grabbed n sack containing $05,000 in small currency, pushed it Into the bakery truck and drove off. He ignored $200,000 In bills of large denominations.

Police were without any real clues. Then Murray recalled the 1919 incident of Farmer's uniform and got a hunch. Farmer was taken Into custody at his house at 0 p.m. last night and questioned steadily until 5 a. in. He broke down, admitted the theft and took police to the amiise- nent park where he dug up the money. Federal Bureau of Investigation agents were in on the questioning. So were officials of Brinks. They satisfied themselves that Farmer had nothing to do with the sensational $1,210,000 Brink's robbery in Boston Jan. 17. 1950, the biggest cash haul in history. That holdup still is unsolved.
