However, it was reported that two

contingency should the players desire to

They say that at no'tlme wns any

He said he had been promised $20,000,
but wds double-crossed. Abo Attel and
Omiclll were the ones he believed guilty
of tho double-crossing.

Cook County Prosecutor Uncer

New Yor, Sept. 30. Maclay Hoyne,
prosecutor of Cook county. 111., whose
office started the Investigation Into the
charges that tho 1010 world's scries wns

certain whether any crime had been
He explained also that no indictments
had been returned, although voted, and
thnt the grand jury acted despite his
request thnt Uiey defer action until he

Mr. Hoyne has been spending a vaca
tion here. He left Chicago on Septem
ber 18 and, ho said, although he had
been In constant touch with his office,
he had known nothing of the grand
Jury's action until he saw tho news
papers. "I have spent months looking Into
this matter," sair Mr. Hoyne. "Borne
time ago I stated that ruy office would
investigate the mnttcr to the bottom and
I have attempted to carry out this
promise. I wired my office four days
ago not to finish the investigation until
1 nad returned, because J had intorma
tlon withered in New York and else
where. I alwj requested Uie grand jury
to take no action until I had returned.
"I don't know anything about all tho

but I do know that it is uncertain
whether there is any crime. Further
more no indictments nave been returned
It may be true that Indictments have
been voted. There may be an Indict
merit against you, but indictments arc
not made public until they are returned.
In this case apparently there is not yet
any oluclal charge against any one.
"You may be certain that if there Is
any evidence of a crime It will be vig
orously prosecuted. I am going back to
Chicago tomorrow nnd will take with
me the information that I have gathered
in this and other cities. The evidence
which I received here Is largely corrob
orative." Mr. Home safd that In Illinois pro

If nn indictment is voted, he said, it
