POOR LIL HEITLER HAS BEEN MUCHLY WRONGED
We feel sad and sorrv and full
of gloom today, because w-have
been outrageously deceived.
When Hit de Pipe Heitler,
after being soaked $50 and costs
for frequenting - a disorderly
house, moved for a new trial, we
were sure that the Hon.Hit de
Pipe had only some piffling rea
son for the same.
And now Hit de Pipe's mo
tion has come up, and we fnid in
stead that a terrible injustice was
done that former king of the also
former West Side levee.
For, according to Heitlers at
torney, Heitler never was ar
raigned before the trial at the end
of which a jury of citizens found
him guilty and he was .told to fork
over $50 and costs.

But from what we've observed
in court, we reckon it must mean
eivinff the accused a chance to
say whether'his lawyer has told
him to plead guilty or not guilty.
And if that's the case, you can
see how terrible the injustice to

And a jiury of citizens, without
any regard for the niceties of the
noble profession of the law, went
right ahead and found him guilty
anyhow, on the evidence as pre
sented before them.
Heitler's attorney, Charles E.
Erbstein, got all worked up about:
this injustice today.
He pointed out what a terrible
thing it was, and what the coun
try was liable to come to if the
rights of accused men and their
attorneys was run over in this
terrible way. .
Also, he said that he would-take
the case up to the supreme court
if necessary on that point alone.
Thus, Hit de Pipe Heitler got
another continuance (contin

jury decided you had to be sep

Prosecutor Raber was given until
December 5 to explain the in
justice. Heitler himself was even more
pathetic than his attorney about
the injustice done him.
Heitler got real eloqudnt, and
went over his whole case again,
and told how the entire police
force and Barney Grogan were in
league against him.
It s a great pity about the in
justice done Heitler, and we hope
his attorney will go right to work
and get justice for jiim all the
justice that's comirig to him.
