AN EXAMPLE OF THE OLD POLICE
METHODS BLOW IN
An example of the old police meth
ods thought nearly extinct was given
in Chicago today in the case of the
persecution of Louis Schultze, a pris
oner just released from the Colum
bus, O., penitentiary.
When Schultze walked out of the
prison, a free man after a year and
a half, Sergeant J. J. Early of the
San Francisco force, was there wait
ing for him and hustled him onto a
Early claims that two years ago
Schultze stole an empty pocketbook
in the coast city.
Early and his captive had to stop
in Chicago on their way West. The
officer wanted to "take in" the town
a bit so he threw his prisoner into a
cell at the detective bureau. There
Schultze got word to Attorney Chas.
Erbstein immediately applied for a
writ of habeas corpus and notified
Capt. Halpin to this effect. When
this notice is served on a police cap
tain they're supposed to do nothing
but await the action of the court.
But Early was allowed the use of
a patrol wagon to spirit his man
away. At this juncture Erbstein ap
peared on the scene. He saw the
rapidly disappearing patrol and did
a marathon to the railroad station
and stopped the party.
Attorney Erbstein threatens to
start an investigation of the handling
of Schultze by the police.
