cause of secret information he has
received as to plans to prevent jus
tic being done in the Belford shoot
ing case.
It is known that some time ago
Attorney W. S. Forrest approached
Assistant State's Attorney Charles C.
Case, in charge of the bond depart
ment in the state's attorney's office,
and tried to fix up Annenberg's bond.
Annenberg is now at libertly on
$25,000 bond, $25,000 property hav
ing been put up for
Guire, head of the McGuire & White
Detective Agency, and $20,000 by
Benjamin C. Bachrach, one of An
nenberg's attorneys.
It is believed that the Tribune
would be very much pleased to have
Annenberg's bonds reduced say to
about $5,000 or so.
Last Thursday, too, Hoyne charg
ed the Tribune with trying to force
him to fail in his duty to the people
by a campaign of personal attack on
Hoyne.
At that time, Hoyne said: "There
is one thing I wish clearly under
stood, and that is that if any Tribune
representative, be he managing edi
tor or reporter, try to tamper with
witnesses in the case of the People
versus Annenberg, he shall answer
for it to the grand jury."
It is believed that the summoning
of the Tribune employes yesterday
may have some connection with this
statement.
Meantime, the Tribune continues
its personal attack on Hoyne to pun
ish him for daring to allow the law
to take its course in the case of a
Tribune gunman. It was particularly
bitter this morning, and besides a
number of alleged "news" stories, it
used up a, column of perfectly good
space on the editorial page to giving
the Tribune's private opinion of Ma
clay Hoyne.
But the Tribune did NOT tell about
the appearance, involuntarily", before
the grand jury, of McCutcheon, Neff,
RexeL Gotthardt, et aL, nor of the
summoning of Howey and Stott, j
him by Tom Mc-
either in its news or editorial col
umns. Neither did any other morning
newspaper, by the way, although
they must all have known of it.

MRS. ELLA FLAGG YOUNG MAY
WITHDRAW RESIGNATION
Mrs. Ella Flagg Young will not re
sign as superintendent of Chicago
schools if the force of public opinion
can induce her to decide differently.
This much has been determined by
the cry of protest that arose from
thousands of people following the an
nouncement of her resignation
Thursday afternoon.
After much urging Mrs. Young has.
consented to think the matter over
for three days before making a
definite answer.
At present the school book trust is
panic-stricken for fear she might
choose to remain at the head of the
Chicago schools.
