Hfc.Llfc.VE MERCHANTS HAVE
STUCK THEIR NOSES IN
Angered because there has been
an average of only one truck farmer
at a municipal market per day since
their opening, the Municipal Markets
body believe that commission mer
chants are holding a boycott above
the farmers' heads to keep them
away from the civic marts.
As a direct slam at the food mer
chants, the commission has called
Otto Weisheit, W. Randolph st. mar
ket master, and August Geweke, head
of the Cook County Farmers' and
Truck Gardeners' Ass'n, to testify
before the municipal body.
If the efforts of the body disclose
an attempt to boycott the municipal
markets, city council action is ex
pected to result. Meanwhile, a dozen
prominent clubwomen have enlisted
to do "missionary" work among the
farmers, telling of the advantage of
the municipal markets.

BLAMES "SOL" LEWINSOHN
Further operations of "Sol" Lewin
sohn, bondsman and banker, who is
a fugitive in Europe at present, were
revealed before Judge Landis when
Dr. Wm. H. Rupert, accused of a mail
order fraud, charged he had been
fleeced by "Sol" in a bond deal.
Rupert when pinched for misuse of
the mails, gave "Sol" $200 for a
bond which was to hold good until
the case was over.
He now says "Sol" paid the Chi
cago Bonding and Surety Co. $80 for
the bond which was to last one year
only, and that "Sol" made $120 out
of the deal and skipped.
Landis called the game an old trick
