EX-BIG BOSS IN FOR IT
Columbus, O., Feb. 11. Geo.
B. Cox, formerly boss of Cincin
nati, maker of judges, congress
men, governors and U. S. sena
tors, is now shorn of all his power
and will be tried on a charge of
In 1906 a Cincinnati grand jury
investigated graft in the county
treasurer's office, and Rud Hy
nicki, one of Cox's lieutenants,
returned over $200,000 graft
which he had grabbed as interest
from banks on count)- funds.
Boss Cox was indicted for per
jury. But Judge Dickenson, who
had been placed on the bench by
Cox. paid his political debt by
quashing the indictment.
The present mayor of Cincin
nati, Harry Hunt, was then coun
ty prosecuting attorney. As such
he objected to the action of the
Cox-made judge and carried the
matter to the supreme court It
has dragged there ever since.
In the emantime the old Stand
ard Oil supreme court has been
turned inside but by the election
of four Democratic and one Bull
Moose judge; and this court to
day sustained Prosecutor Hunt's
objection to Judge Dickenson's
quashing of the Cox indictments.
This paves the way for a rein
dictment of Cox for perjury in
Cincinnati; and in the meantime
his judges there have been kicked
off the bench by the people of
Hamilton county, and he can no
longer control the courts.
