to organize a new stereotypers'
local in Chicago appointed.
The trust newspapers have lied
consistentfy about the newspaper
situation since the day they lock
ed out the pressmen.
They may be lying again.
On the other hand, some agent
of the publishers may have sent
a telegram From San Francisco
and signed it L. P, Straube, just
to discredit the Federated Trades
Tiere.
The Day Book has wired, San
Francisco repeatedly today for
news as to the action of the Ster
eotypers' convention. We .have
received no answer.
Until The Day Book does re
ceive an answer Mo those tele
grams, or receives a. full report of
the convention over the wires of
the United Press, The Day Boole
can not say whether the trust
newspapers' story, or its own
story of yesterday, based on the
Straube telegram, is correct.
INVESTIGATING DEATHS.
The police and coroner today
began a searching investigation
of the deaths of five persons two
husbands and three-children of
Mrs. Louise Lindloff, a spiritual
ist medium, 2044 Ogden avenue

No charge has been placed
against the woman and she was
aIloved to return Jiome and ar
range for herson's funeral. The
police have her undersurveillance.
Coroner Hoffman is awaiting
the decision of Prof. Walter S.
Haynes of Rush Medical College,
who is analyzing tKe organs of
young Graunke for traces of pois
on. Upon his findings depend the
exhuming of the bodies of the
four other persons.
They are: Julius Graunke, first
husband of Mrs. Lindloff, who

William Lindloff, second hus

According to the police consid
erable poisons of several kinds
have been kept in the Lindloff
home. All of the members of the
family were insured in favor of
Mrs. Lindloff.
Coroner Hoffman -said to-day
he regretted the publicity that
followed thewoman's arrest."The
only reason for holding, her," he
said, "is the circumstances sur
rounding the suddendeaths of the-
members 6f her tamily, and tne
fact that each was insured in her
favor. It may be that we will find
the cases are merely coinci
dences." At .her home this afternoon
Mrs. Lindloff tearfully declared
her innocence, andlaid her arrest
was the result of unfortunate cir
cumstances. SIC HIM ON DOGFISH
