HOYNE PLANS SOUTH SIDE SHAKE-UP AFTER
EXPOSE OF POLICEMEN
y More police are expected to be
' trapped in the dual war on crooked
policemen nay being waged by
State's Att'y Hoyne and Chief
Gleason.
Investigators are patroling the
north, south and west sides in an ef
fort to uncover evidence that certain
police are taking money to wink at
lawbreakers.
Yesterday through a trick engin
eered by Chief Gleason and First
Deputy Schuettler two officers from
the Cottage Grove avenue station
were caught and they will be charged
with taking money from women of
the underworld.
The two policemen are:
Patrolman John D. Frawley, about
35 years old, married, father of five
children, residing at 5747 South Her
mitage av.; in the department since
1907.
Patrolman Patrick T. O'Toole,
about 25 years old, unmarried, and
residing at 5124 South Aberdeen st;
a policeman since 1913.
Suspicion that police were taking
money from women in the fourth
precinct was first aroused about a
month ago. The state's attorney
about the same time also heard re
ports to this effect and begun an in
vestigation. The police department put their in
vestigation into the hands of Schuet
tler and Funkhouser. Two women
were secured, who were vouched for
by some of Funkhouser's morals
squad. They were given marked $5
bills.
It will be charged that later In the
evening the girls met Frawley and
O'Toole and gave them the money.
Immediately Schuettler and others
grabbed the men and brought them
to the city hall. They were searched
and it is said the marked money was
found on them.
State's Att'y Hoyne will take all
such cases before the grand jury im
mediately. Thirty-first street, be
tween Indiana and Cottage Grove,
where the men were caught, has
been under scrutiny for some time.
This latest affair will probably result
in a general shaking up of the dis
trict. Hoyne's investigators and offcers
working out of the city hall are also
investigating thp north side, in which
it is thought protected vice exists.

wit another weapon to aid her in her
sensational fight to establish her
white parentage, Mrs. Arthur C. Lit

tends further to disprove the charges
of her druggist husband that she is
of negro origin.

affidavit the negress swears that the
Detroit woman was born in Denver
