HEARST THUGS AT LARGE.
The seven Hearst thugs held
by the coroner's jury to the
grand jury for the murder of
George Hehr are at large again
The coroner's jury specifically
ordered the men to be held with
out bail. Yet they were released
on bail today and State's Attor
ney John E. Wayman approved
that action.
The gunmen's bonds were
signed by Paul S. Warden, 1516
West 103rd street, a reporter for
the American, and John W. Ken
nedy, real estateman, 844 Wave
land avenue.
Edward Barrett's .bond was
fixed at $10,000, that of the others
at $5,000. Barrett's bail was
made biggest because he also has
' to answer to the grand jury for
his part in the slaying of Con
ducton Frank Witt.
It would be interesting to find
out what moved State's Attorney
Wayman to approve the release
of these thugs on bail after the
coroner's jury had directed they
be held without bail.
The whole seven men have
gone back to work on the Amer
ican wagons. It was while work
ing on American wagons that one
of them, in cold blood, fired the
shot that sent eorge Hehr to his
death.
"Got a job, guv'nor?" the
Lmight-be laborer inquired in
sleepy tones.
"Fm extremely sorry, my man,"
replied the employer, "but I'm full
just now."
The weary toiler did not bestir
himself.
"You see," continued the boss,
"I engaged 56 fresh hands only
yestdrday " -
"Take me on, guv'nor," plead
ed the'apphcant, "the little work
I shall do won't make much dif
ference !"
Eyery Little Helps.
,No sooner had the master build
er arrived at the works than he
was accosted by a slovenly, hulk
ing person, who was supporting
himself comfortably against a
stack of bricks.
