SON OF MURDERED MAN A WHITE SLAVER;
ORDERED DEPORTED THREE MONTHS AGO
Police Investigating His Dealings With White Slave
Organization While Clinging to Theory Mansfield
Was Slain by Thief He Cheated.
"We believe that Max Mans
field was murdered tor revenge
by a thief with whom he had deal
ings. -
"We believe that Mansfield
was a fence, a receiver of stolen
goods. A fence is outside the
law; his 'clients' are outside the
law. When a fence cheats a 'cli
ent,' the client has only one re
course, violence, murder!
"We want to find Ex-Convict
Rattenberg, who was seen near
the Mansfield store the day be
fore the murder, who is a thief,
and who answers the description
of the man who fled from the
store after the murder.
"We want to know what house
on Aberdeen street gave 'shelter
to the murderer when he was be
ing run down by Firemen Ernst
and Taube.
"We want to know what other
secrets that house may hold, how
many other thieves and murder
ers it may shelter.
"We want to know if there is
an organized band of metal
thieves on the West Side with
whom Mansfield bad unlawful
dealings and who believed he was
cheating them out of a fair share
of their ill-gotten gains.
"We want to know how much
truth there is in the report that
Mansfield was a miser, who
stored gold away in hidden
places.
"But we also want to know
about Maurice Mansfield, son of
the murdered man, and his con
nections and dealings with white
slavers."

Meagher on the Murder of
