OF THE LORIMER BANK CRASH
Packing Boss Could Have Saved His Former Political:Pal
If He Had Come Across Story Harks Back to ,
i Lorimer's Ousting From Senate
The true inside .story of why the Lorimer-Munday bank went smash,
as told by two of the beat known Lorimer lieutenants, is given here in The
Day Book today.
These two Lorimer men name Edward Tilden, the packer-banker, as
the high man who failed Lorimer in the pinch. But they don't blame Ed
Tilden. They explain that Ed Tilden was forced to do what he did.
"No man. in Chicago knows more about how to mix politics and bank
ing than Ed Tilden does," said one of these Lorimer lieutenants. "He was
the head man that formed the connection between our crowd in politics and
the Armours and Rockefellers in banking.
"I lost cash when the LaSalle Street 'Trust and Savings Bank failed
and I have caught hell from about sixty depositors. I sent these depositors
to that "bank, t told them it was 'safe to place their money there. They
'Were.tfrieitds Dlmine and believed.me. .Lam-telling this' story now because
j think it's time, the public knows "somegdng about the -other side.'-
