LYONS JUSTICE OF PEACE HELD
Frank Karlovsky, justice of the
peace at Lyons, 111., was held to the
grand jury today by Judge Owens
on a charge of extortion.
According to testimony sworn to
before Judge Owens by John D.
Black, an attorney, Karlovsky has
been working a fine little game. Mr.
Black said that whenever an autoist
was arrested, and that was strangely
frequent, the clerk of the court, one
Beissewanger by name, used to tell
the defendant what a fine fellow Kar
After that the clerk would suggest
that for the "munificent" sum of $7
he would be able to have the case
settled so that the autoist would be
saved another trip to Lyons.
But one day they arrested Black.
He- wasn't feeling good. He didn't
like Lyons. Nor he didn't like its jus
tice of peace. So when this proposi
tion was made to him he refused and
brought the matter to the attention
of Judge Owens. The action today
followed. Karlovsky's bonds were
fixed at $2,500.
