BLACK HAND' BUTTS INTO
COURT AND POLITICS
Municipal Judge Newcomer
came in direct contact with the
"Black Hand" yesterday at the
City Hall and emerged from the,
encounter unscathed, though the
dignity of the bench appeared to
suffer a couple of severe jolts.
The judge was administering
justice impressively. The door to
the courtroom was flung open
and in strode the "Black Hand'"
sometimes known as Jack John
son, heavyweight champion
prize-fighter of the world.
Jack was not looking for trou

enough trouble for him without
him "searching, for it. He was
taking a dip into politics. He has
always admired Newcomer
Probably he has not appeared be

wanted the judge to run for J
state's attorney at the coming
primary, and said .he would "sec

might go awy for a little while
to fight .Jini Flynn, ff a place is
ever fouifcl to stage the battle;
but theresfof the time he would ,
be right here making speeches-!
for, the judge's cause.
.Newcomer did 'not accept.
That's where he emerged un
scathed fron the "Black Hand"
encounter, as mentioned above.
But he did invite the "cinder"
to share the bench with him i
while he heard some cases. That's
where the dignity of the bench re
ceived the two jolts, also mention
During the Buehler trial yes
terday Johnson pushed into the
courtroom, and a witness was
ejected from his seat to make way
for the "dinge." We might get
up and holler about this if we
thought the man who was thrown
out was .missing anything
