Ml I Slain Reporter f Helped Cutten Trap Robbers i Xlue to Blurder Seen ; ., in Work-Capone Aide Linked by Witnesses Chicago, June 10 W One of the greatest murder hunts Chicago ever has seen was organized today. Police, State's Attorney's men, private detectives and the organized power of the press Joined to track down the man who yesterday killed Alfred (Jake) Lingle. 38-year-old reporter for the Tribune. Rewards totaling S30.000 were nosted S25.000 bv the Tribune and V i ii if 1 nv t da t -n cairn f urii i ri rn.ni, he Press Club of Chicago Issued a atement that It stood ready to ' post an additional $10,000. Caught Cuttea Robmers - Lingle was Instrumental In track- Ink down eight robbers over a period i of as many years for Arthur Cut-ten, prominent grain trader and . personal friend. This circumstance held place today In a multitude of ' theories on motives for the re- porter's slaying. The cutten home In Downers Grove was Invaded by nine robbers - eight years ago. After looting the " place they left Cutten locked in a ! vault to suffocate. He was rescued by a houseman who had freed him-" self from bonds. Mr. Cutten vowed to spare neither time nor expense to bring justice to the robbers. He sought the aid "of Lingle, who was credited with -the work which eventually landed - eight of the criminals in prison. 'The ninth was expected to be captured shortly. Lingle went to Cleveland last April 6 as a personal representative "of Cutten to Identify for him Simon Rosenberg, one of the robbers. , Rosenberg was returned to Chicago to face charges. He had hidden out In Cleveland several years. Two hundred or more persons " were within a few feet of Lingle .when he was shot down at 1:35 ' o'clock yesterday afternoon, yet the slayer not only escaped but left witnesses with a confusion of stories ' as to Just what happened. : Killer's Gun Found Early today the Investigators revisited the murder scene the subway that dips under Michigan Boulevard at Randolph St. and leads to the Illinois Central Station. They wanted to recheck every possible means of escape that the slayer may have taken. " Already they had the killer's gun, . a pocket revolver of .38-caliber, and they had the black silk glove worn by the killer to prevent telltale -fingerprints. " There were many witnesses, rid almost as many dliTerent stori - f what happened. Several, how r. tentatively Identified rogue gallery pictures of Sam Hunt, Capone gunman, as closely resembling the man who killed Lingle. Hunt, carrying a shotgun In a golf bag, was arrested a fortnight ago on the northwest side shortly after a gang gunning In which the body of the victim was spirited away. He is out on bond under charges of carrying concealed weapons. Victim Friend of Capone ' Lingle Is the first newspaperman, the Tribune pointed out, to be murdered since Don R. Mellett, Canton, Ohio, editor was slain In July. 1920, following his crusade against gangsters there. Lingle's 13 years as a Tribune reporter nve been devoted largely to police te-'portintf and Investigation, a Job that has brought him Into contict with most of the "big sho;" gangsters of Chicago. He was well acquainted with Al (Scarface) Capone, among others, and once was entertained i the Capone home in Miami. The Tribune reporter, reputedly wealthy enough to retire but staying on the Job through pure Joy of the work, was working on the ohain of gang murders that hve been committed within the last 10 days. He himself became the eleventh victim. Because of his wide acquaintanceship, the Tribune said, Lingle frequently was sought out by gangsters and racketeers who wanted him to use his ' drag" to help them promote some Illegal enterprise. ' He Would Warn Them " "Invariably he told them he could gain no such permission for them even if he tried," the Tribune said, "and that if they attempted to go ahead with their plans they would surely be brought to answer before the law. Every branch of law enforcement promised full and unrelenting prosecution of the hunt for Lingle's slayer. Commissioner Russell said: "I'd give my two eves to solve the murder of Al Lingle. Nothing that I can do will be left undone." Chief of Detectives Stege, who also was intimately acquainted with Linjle, said: "I haven t much, but I would give all I have to be able to arrest the man who killed him." Roundup in Order Bweeping orders for a roundup of gangsters were issued Immediately after the body of Lingle was Identified. Several arrests followed, but none of the prisoners was believed to have been the man who fired the single shot Into the back of Lingle's head. One man arrested was John J. (Boss McLaughlin, former Legislator, who police learned had sought Lingle's aid In starting a gambling racket. Lingle refused, and police were told that McLaughlin threatened to "get even." McLaughlin denied ever making any threats, and professed friendship for Llnnle. The slain newspaperman was married and the father of two small rhiklren. LOST ANYTHING?

VICTIM OF THUG Alfred (Jake) Lingle Correction Charge Ordered Pushed By Schools Head Ryan Asks O'Shea to Act at Once on Allegations Made in Pension Campaign President George J. Ryan of the Board of Education today asked Dr. William J. O'Shea, Superintendent of Schools, to begin an immediate investigation of charges of official coercion made during the recent teachers pension campaign. Mr. Ryan requested Dr. O'Shea to drop everything else and give the investigation precedence. The Superintendent was asked to call before his investigating committee all those who had made charges or against whom charges had been made. e Mr. Ryan turned over to Dr. O'Shea four complaints he had re-reived, in one of which Phincipal Henry Mendelsohn of P.

The others jumped overboard and were picked up bv the Socony 18, tug of the Standard Oil Company of New York. They were landed at New Brighton, 8. I. The Invader, owned by the Brooklyn Eastern District Terminal Company, was bound from Brooklyn to the B. Sc O. terminal at Stapleton, 8. I. A two line parted. A 55-mile wind, powerful currents and heavy waves in the bay caused the tug to capsize after maneuvering to take on another line. Coast Ouard craft and harbor police sought the body of the engineer. a hi 4 Telephone Poles Wrecked By Storm; Clearing Tomorrow A cold rain, driven by wind which reached a velocity of 50 miles, according to the Weather Bureau, gripped the city today, caused pedestrians to discard summer garb and slowed down vehicular traffic somewhat. Four telephone poles along 2d Ave. between Freeman and Webster Aves., Astoria, were blown against adjoining buildings this morning. Although there was no damage to the buildings, workmen began Immediate repairs.

Magistrate Earl A. Smith sen tenced Mrs. Hammersteln to one day in Jail and released her imme-,1 aiaieiy on the grounds that she had fulfilled the sentence while remanded to jail since her conviction Friday. Mrs. Mary E. Hamilton, former head of the policewomen, who has been active in Mrs. Hammerstein's defense, said today that she would proceed to enlist the aid of women's clubs during the summer, and carry tne ngnt against the present Jaws into the State Legislature next fall. Mrs. Hamilton said she had re ceived letters from women all over the country, urging her to make a nation-wide fight against the present laws, with a view to substituting Federal for municipal and State jurisdiction in such cases. . Mrs. Catherine Parker Olivette announced her intention of taking the case up with Oovemor Roosevelt and asking a State investigation of the City Magistrates' Court. She said she was raising money to appeal Mrs. Hammerstein's case, so that the widow's- name would be cleared of the charge. Arthur Hammerstein, stepson of the convicted woman, yesterday offered to supply her with sufficient money to keep her for the rest of her life. Mrs. Hammerstein said she would be "glad to accept it." Fink Answers Magistrates in Housing Dispute Says Judges Must Help Tenement House Force to Remove Fire Hazard Unless magistrates will assist the Tenement House Department teae-ments will never be fully occupied or safe from fire, Joseph H. Fink, secretary of the Housing Commit tee of the Brooklyn Bureau of Charities, stated today In what he termed a reply to Magistrates Ray flel and Walsh, with whom he has engaged in a controversy over tenement house affairs and enforcement of the multiple dwelling laws. 'It must be evident," he declared, "that the reluctant owner will never carry out an order Issued by the Tenement House Department when he knows that he will receive a suS' pended sentence if his case should reach the courts." Fink said that the magistrates often handle 195 cases between 8 o'clock and noon and added, in re ply to statements of Magistrate Walsh, that it makes lltue diner ence whether cases are dismissed or sentences are suspended as far as holding owners responsible for con ditions is concerned. trouble caused by the storm, but workmen, when notified, began repairs at once. The storm will last locally throughout the day. Weather Bureau officials said, with a shift of winds to west and southwest which may bring a clearing by night. Indications are that It will be fair tomorrow. Northwest storm warnings have been ordered from Sandy Hook to Boston. The storm centered last night over Central Virginia, shifting this morning to Harrisburg, Pa. High winds and rain are general from North Carolina northmard to the St. Lawrence Valley and the Lake region. DOYLE PAROLED PENDING APPEAL TO ESCAPE JAIL Continued from Fage 1 tomorrow or Thursday for hearing on the appeal. Had Doyle's bail bond been completed and signed before the United States Attorney's sudden appearance, it was believed, the Issue of his going to jail would have had to wait until the court resumes In the fall before reaching the calendar. Or, with the bail bond signed, the erstwhile horse doctor would probably have been able to stall oft efforts for an immediate appearance by developing a sudden illness. Craln Continues Probe While Doyle's . circuitous moves were receiving; a setback from Mr. Tuttle, District Attorney Crain In Manhattan continued hi Grand Jury investigation centering on the activities of Chairman William E. Walsh of the board before which Doyle practiced with such remarkable success. Mr. Crain began presentation to the panel this afternoon of evidence bearing upon Walsh's occupancy of a 14,000-a-year apartment at 23 E. 86th St., Manhattan, at rental of $1,500 a year and related evidence that the building in which Walsh resides was permitted to be erected only after Walsh's board had overruled the Building Department at the behest of Doyle. Doyle represented one of his best paying clients the Masses Building Corporation in this proceeding, and officers of the concern, including Samuel Oolding, president, were taken before the jurors. There was one other way In which Doyle could avoid going to jail and that was by telling the Federal Grand Jury with whom he spilt fees in 1922, 1923 and 1924. It was believed that Doyle would go to jail rather than tell. Judge Woolsey sentenced him last night, but in conformance with a promise made last week, gave nim until today to start an appeal, Doyle has held tenaciously to the theory that if he did tell he would be incriminating himself In income tax matters, and stand good chance ot facing prosecution for making out false income tax returns. Held In Contempt Tn spite of implied and direct statements that he would not be prosecuted, Doyle has continued to interpose the objection to all questions, that to answer would incriminate him. The end came yesterday when Samuel Fa lk, Doyle's attor ney, told Judge Woolsey in open court that the "witness will not answer." Then the Judge ordered him held in contempt. Doyle got one small break yesterday. Judge Woolsey ruled that he would not have to tell the amounts he split, but Falk insisted that even j that would not help. It was Falk's contention that if Doyle told with whom he split fees he would in ef feet be telling the amounts, because such things could be traced. The curious thing in the Doyle situation is that there is no inten tion of prosecuting him or any one else for fee putting. In fact, that is not a crime. But ir bis tale of lee splitting showed the Federal officials that he or some one else had made out false Income tax reports prosecution would be possible. He has promised to tell whether he split any fees with any official of the Board of Standards and Appeals. Refuses to Answer Question Four times Doyle was haled into Judge Woolsey's court. Each time he listened carefully to part of the argument of the attorneys and then went out into tne nan to pace up and down, and to Insist to reporters that ho wasn't worried, and that he had nothing to hide. But each time he went back, after the arguments were all over, and in the Grand Jury room, again refused to answer ques tions. The attorneys frankly believe that Judge Woolsey Is in error in his decision on the length of time that the statute ot limitations has to run. Woolsey said that Doyle would not have to answer for his acts in the past three years, because he could be prosecuted for anything be did then. But he held, befoae that he was protected by the statute. CONWAY LOOMS AS CANDIDATE FOR VAUSE JOB Continued from Page 1 year, if McCooey falls to Indorse him. The county leader is being strongly advised by certain persons close to him to indorse Cropsey in order to keep him off the stump this year. The argument is made on behalf of an indorsement for Cropsey that with a reputation as an able campaigner, he might upset McOooey's plans for re-electing a solid delegation to both houses of the Legislature and for winning with the rest of his local ticket. G. O. P. to Make Hard Fight Undoubtedly the local Republican organization, neaaea by Meier Stein-brink, will make a hard fight to regain the single place on the County Court bench it lost when Algeron I. Nova defeated. Reuben L. Haskell. Conway, according to the prevailing opinion, would make a strong candidate for McCooey, who could easily overcome whatever objection Conway mglht have to quitting the post of State Superintendent of Insurance by stressing the need for a first-class nominee. Conway, running for Attorney General in 1928, made a good showing in Brooklyn and a fair showing throughout the city, but was trimmed by Ward's strength in the western part of the State. Smith, a close personal friend and confrere of McCooey. is highly regarded in the party. Kopf, who has prosecuted the majority of the Important first degree murder cases in the District Attorney's office in recent years, is due for promotion, having been passed over on previous occasions.

In the divorce suit, it was said, Davis will insist that, though his wife successfully conducted the Davis tt Geek business while he was in jail, her success was due to the fact that he followed the advice he gave her from Dannemora. i Mulrooney Tells Cops Patience Is Essential Cautions Men to Serve Public in Speech at Elks Club 3,000 Hear Him Police Commissioner E dward F.

He arrived accompanied only by Chief Inspector John O'Brien and First Deputy commissioner Philip u Hoyt. The entire meeting was behind closed doors, but at its close Jo seph P. Moran, president of the association, told something or tne proceedings. The Commissioner, in his address, said he had his own idea as to the type of service which policemen, and especially patrolmen, should give citizens. He advised the men to be "always patient with citizens" and to "carry on under the rules and regulations." He himself had done so, from a policeman up to Commissioner.

Simpson Favored To Fill Seat Left By Judge McAdoo Manhattan Magistrate Is Considered First Among Possible Successors Magistrate George W. Simpson of Manhattan was today considered as among the leaders for the position of Chief City Magistrate, left vacant by the death last week of Judge William McAdoo. No decision had been made, however, and in political circles it was expected that Mayor Walker would not make any until the return to the city of John F. Curry, Tammany leader, tomorrow. Other names mentioned as possibilities for the post were Magistrates Joseph F. Corrigan and John V. Flood and former Magistrates Freschl and Oberwager. Magistrate Alexander Brough also received some support, but his appointment was considered unlikely in view of the fact that he is a Republican. It 'was stated by friends of Mr. Walker that the Mayor intended to elevate one of the sitting magistrates to the vacancy. In addition to Simpson the names mentioned today included Judges Joseph E. Corrigan and Edwin Rosenbluton, Yale Scientists Find Temple Of Artemis in Syrian Sands New Haven, Conn., June 10 (ry Fourteen cases of antiquities, part of the result of the Yale excavations during the past year at Doura-Europos in Mesopotamia, have arrived at the University from Syria, and will be put on exhibition at the Yale Gallery of Fine Arts before commencement.

McKennee Is Acting on 'Frameup' Corning Guilford McKennee, Rockaway Beach lawyer and poli tician, has brought suit In Supreme Court for a divorce from his wife, Mrs. Ruth Evelyn McKennee, to whom he was married July 1, 1815. He charges that she was guilty of misconduct with numerous men while she was at Miami Beach, Fla., during the months of March, April and May, and that ber conduct was such that the local Juvenile Court took away the custody ot her 13-year-old daughter, Muriel, and sent that child back to McKennee In Rockaway Beach. The other child, corning Jr, 11, an Invalid, was left in ner custody. Stephen Callaghan, former Su preme Court Justice, as attorney for Mrs. McKennee, applied to Justice Druhan today for $7400 counsel fee and $75 a week alimony for his client, telling the court she was the victim ot a frame-up engineered with the aid of a woman named Ida siawson, who rented room of Mrs. McKennee in her Miami Beach apartment. The wife's affidavit alleges that because of the Siawson woman's behavior she had to put ner out. William F. Morris Jr. appeared in court for McKennee and told Justice Druhan that he was giving his service gratis because his brothw practitioner could not afford to pay him fee. He said McKennee's entire net income last year was about $5,900, although he owns the building on Rockaway Beach Boulevard that houses the local Municipal Court and the public library, and a big apartment house. McKennee In his own affidavit called himself "merely a small town practitioner," with a meager income from his law practice. He said he and his wife separated some time ago and she knew his income and accepted $55 a week alimony, consenting to reduce it to $40 a week when Muriel was taken from her. Decision was reserved. 0'Connell Pleads . Not Guilty on Perjury Charge Albany Leader Has Bail Reduced to $10,000 Coxe Balks the Defense! Daniel P. O'Connell this afternoon consented to withdraw his appeal from his 90-day contempt sentence in the Albany baseball pool ease and to begin service ef his term In the Bouse of Detention on Friday. Daniel P. O'Connell, Albany po litical leader, pleaded not guilty this morning before Federal Judge Al fred C. Coxe to an indictment charging perjury, returned against him by a Federal Grand Jury last December. Since that time O'Connell, through his attorneys, has contested every move by the Government to force him to plead to the indictment. Three attempts today by O'Con-nell's attorney, former County Judge Nash Rockwood, to delay further the proceedings, were cut short by Judge Coxe, who overruled motions to dismiss the indictment, to give the defendant the right to inspect Grand Jury testimony and to suppress the evidence against him obtained by the Grand Jury. The Court said it thought It was about time the case was disposed of. O'Connell has been at liberty in $25,000 bail, which expired today. On the consent of TJ. S. Attorney Charles H. Tuttle, Judge Coxe fixed new bail at $10,000.

Caraway Makes Proposal to Deal With Cannon Def i Will Announce Plan When He Has Reached Agree ment With Other Mem hers Washington, June 10 Of) A proposal to ask the Senate for specific power to Investigate political activities was made today by Senator Walsh, Democrat, Montana, as a way eat ot the problem resulting from the de-nance ef the Lobby Committee by Bishop James Cannon Jr. Washington, June 10 (ff1) Sharply divided, members of the Senate Lobby Committee sought today to agree on what to do about the defiance of Bishop James Cannon Jr. Chairman Caraway held informal conferences with other committeemen. He haa devised a plan for dealing with the churchman but declined to make it public pending an agreement. Whether the othei members would sanction the proposal was problematical, but the Lobby Chairman said he hoped some decision would be reached during the day. Caraway, who was absent when Cannon refused to answer questions about his 1928 anti-Smith activities and walked out on the committee, has partially studied the record of the hearings and hoped to finish today. He said he had learned enough to give him a definite idea of what should be done. He refrained from intimating what course he favored. Senator Walsh, Democrat, Montana, who has been acting chairman, and Senator Blaine, Republican, Wisconsin, contend r.e committee did not exceed its poweis tn questioning about political activities and that Cannon was guilty of contempt. 8enator Robinson, Republican, Indiana, sides with Cannon. , Senator Borah, Republican, Idaho, hos not made his position known.

Carol Moves To Punish His Political Foes Orders Prosecution of Three Reconciliation: With Helen DouWd Bucharest, Rumania, June 10 King Carol professed toddy to have forgotten the activities of political enemies against him while in exile, but he moved quickly to punish those of his enemies who committed new offenses. Upon' learning that Dr. C. An-gelescu, who was Minister of Edu cation in the last Liberal Cabinet of MM. V. and J. Bratianu, had spoken dlsrespectfuly of him at a Liberal meeting yesterday, he or dered him prosecuted immediately. Dr. Kostlnescu, Mayor ot Bucharest, and Dr. Demetrescu Braila, former Minister of Health, were or dered prosecuted likewise for similar offenses. Their party, named Liberal, but actually ultra-Conser vative, was said to have voted yes terday not to support the mon archy, although not suggesting rev olution. . . King to Free 20,000 I In contrast to the moves to sup press objectionable political enmity. King Carol ordered that all charges of a pardonable nature both political and growing out ot temper caused by extreme distress against 20,000 persons still accountable for military offenses during the World War, be quashed. All acts and ordinances promulgated during the reign ot the boy-king, Michael, Carol's son, were confirmed. Meanwhile the new sovereign was engaged in forming a Cabinet to replace that of M. Mtronescu, which resigned as soon as Parliament had proclaimed him King. Carol first, as a matter of courtesy, asked Professor Nicolas Jorga, his old tutor, but M, Jorga could promise no suc cess and Jullu Maniu, resigned peasant Premier, was summoned. It was said today that M, Mania wished Carol to come back to Rumania but as regent rather ihn as King, since he felt that he was only just beginning to fulfill his prom ises to the country, and he wished to retain the influence had w.th the regency, not being sure but that Carol as King would be less unc'r the influence of his friends than he was as Prince, After a two-hour conference M. . Manlu left Carol's presence visibly cheerful and told the press that while he was not yet entrusted with the formation of the government he felt that he could find colleagues within 24 hours among his own party. His words were considered significant that he would head the new regime. it is still mooted whether ' the Princess mother, Helen, will tie- come reconciled with Carol which the King desires very much or remain apart from him. Latest re-poi '.3 say that Carol will be crowned in October at Alba Julia, without a Queen at his side, but attended by his little son, Michael, as Prince of Alba Julia. It was believed in political cir cles that Princess Helen will choose a home away from the capital but near enough to watch the education of their son. She is a Princess of Greece, and has no status in her own country now, and so may not return there. Strong forces are being brought to bear to gain her consent to annulment ofthedivorce from Carol.
