-WHERE THE "CRIME TRUST"
1 TRAIL IS LEADING
s .The trail of State's Attorney Mac
i lay Hoyne's terrible "crime trust" is
'leading just where The Day Book
. said it would.
Hearst's Examiner this morning
5 intimated that two police captains
t would be involved hi the crime trust
disclosures.
One week ago The Day Book said
that the "crime trust" noise probably
would develop into an attempt to
c "get" Police Captain P. D. O'Brien
e and Captain of Detectives John J.
Halpin, and to bring Hearst's pet po
t lice captain, Paddy Lavin, back into
-the loop in Halpin's place.
t Detectives Sergeants Dempsey,
Egan, O'Brien, Carmody and Neary,
all of the Central Bureau, were sug-

the recommendation of State's- At
torney Hoyne Saturday night.
The grand jury which Hoyne has
kept investigating the clairvoyant
cases today returned indictments
against Carlos de Alvandros, Eddie
Hartley, Prank S. Ryan (a brother of
the James Ryan, alias Professor
Crance, who already is under two in
dictments), William Stone and David
K. Ross, all clairvoyants.
It is rumored that much of the in
formation against police officers
which has been handed to Hoyne has
been framed up by pickpockets who
have it in for the pohce officers in
question. This could not be confirm
ed today.

IDENTIFY GIRL AS "MYSTERIOUS
BLONDE" IN LOGUE MURDER
Margaret Kennedy, alias half a
dozen other names, was positively
identified today as the "mysterious
blonde" seen in the office of Joseph
H. Logue a short time before Logue
was murdered last December.
The Kennedy woman was taken
into custody last night with Isidore
Goldstein, who the police say is a
pickpocket of not.
She was identified as the "myster
ious blonde" by Stphen Durza, 16
years old, of3604 North Richmond
street, who formerly was office boy
for Logue.
The Kennedy woman is said to
have given the police the name of
another woman in connection with
the murder. This woman is said to
be one with a reputation on the stage
for beauty.
Police officials say they believe
that Logue, whose murdered body
was' found in his office in the Mv
Vicker building, was slain by two
men but that a woman was the
"brains" of the murder.
The "mysterious blonde," as
whom the Kennedy woman has been
identified, tried to sell Logue two
watches in his office at 11 o'clock on
the 4ay of the murder. The murder
was discovered at noon., fc
