JONES BEFORE GRAND JURY
State's Attorney Hoyne was ac
cused of kidnaping another leader
of the "underworld," namely, George
Millsat, alleged to have made $10,000
clean-up in wire-tapping game by an
attorney who appeared before Judge
Petit and asked for a writ of habeas
corpus this morning.
The latest developments in the
"Chicago police scandal" is that
Mayor Harrison and Hoyne will con
fer this afternoon and that Roy J.
Jones, former cafe owner in levee dis
trict, is going before the grand jury.
This contradicts the statement he
made Saturday that he told Hoyne he
didn't know about any police graft,
for if he didn't he would not have
been called as a witness.
A big shake-up in the detective bu
reau is expected to result from
Hoyne's activities in "getting the
goods" on men working out of "head
quarters." The story told by Roy Jones, form
er cafe owner, of his treatment while 1
held a prisoner in a loop hotel, has
led the police to believe that Jones
was not the only one captured and
questioned by the state's attorney.
Jones says that Hoyne asked him
about a dozen men in the detective
bureau from Halpin down to the reg
ular "dicks," He was asked whether
he had ever given or taken money
from the police or crooks and was
grilled several times in an effort to
get him to "squeal" about the police
The result of Hoyne's work in the
crime investigation after the Ran
dolph st. shooting match follows:
Mayor Harrison and Mr. Hoyne
will confer today.
Chief of Police Gleason jnvites
presentation of graft evidence before
State's attorney offers immunity
tp confidence men and other crooks
to tell of police graft. . ,
Anonymous letter writer threatens
Mr. Hoyne's life.
Grand jury indictments against po
licemen are promised.
