State's Attorney Maclay Hoyne
walked into the grand jury room yes
terday and made a dramatic an

of obtaining money from the Union
Trust Company by . misrepresenting
the stability of his firm," said Hoyne.
"McEvoy is the son-in-law of
Roger Sullivan. Roger Sullivan and
I are political enemies. Some of you
may know this. Anyway, I feel it is
right that I should tell you of this.
It is my duty.
"I have no request to make, no
suggestion to, offer except that Mc
Evoy be given a fair deal.
"I have here some letters that have
passed in connection with attempts
to obtain restitution of the money
improperly oblained. I think it right
that you should read them and I will
leave them with you."
High excitement prevailed in the
jury room when Hoyne had left. It
jvas moved to reconsider the vote.
But it was voted to leave the indict

A WOMAN'S PROTEST
Editor Day Book: This morning
when coming down to work I observ
ed a glaring placard over the entrance
of a moving picture show, announc
ing the pictures of the Vera Cruz
hero's funeral and the name of the
aforesaid hero was conspicuously dis
played. Now, the slushy sentiment
that has heen displayed over this fun
eral has been disgusting and I wish
to voice a protest against any further
exploiting of our Chicago "hero."
In the first place, where was the
"heroism" and, in the second place,
it is commonly known that the object
of this hysterical outburst of senti-
ment was not -worthy of. it-- Teach
patriotism, you say? Nonsense, it is
not going to be a healthy subject to
inculcate patriotism in the youth of
our country when they read or hear
of the life history of the hero. The
whole 'thing has been an unwhole
some, hysterical display of emotion
by an unthinking public. Who started
it? The government for advertising
purposes that they may draw re
cruits? The politicians that they may
catch a-certain element?? Quien
sabe? but, I do wish that the mo
tion picture houses could be com
pelled to omit the name of our special
Chicago "hero" when advertising
their pictures. Miss H. F. L.
