After the book was printed by the
Conkey house here and shipped out
secretly, The Day Book ,was the only
paper in town to print the news that
such a book was off-the press.
It was news to the'" Pinkertons.
They got into action. So April 19,
Serg't Donnelly of the Chicago po
lice department landed in Santa Fe,
New Mexico, with a requisition
signed by Gov. Dunne of Illinois, for
the arrest and extradition of Charles
Siringo. On April 22 Gov. McDonald
of New Mexico told Serg't Donnelly:

of congress under which extradition
is sought provides that the requisition
must be based on an indictment or

In this case the foundation of the
pros'ecution in Illinois is information

Clancy of this state holds it can not
be considered in the light of an affi
davit and it certainly is not an in

of Illinois my reasons for refusal to
honor this writ."

New-Mexican which reads:
"Siringo said the first inkling of his
latest book reached the Pinkertons
through 'The Day Book,' an adless
newspaper published in Chicago
every week day, which printed a two
page review of tfie book declaring it
to be a big squeal on the Pinkertons.
"I took the train out of Chicago
just before The Day Book left the
presses," explained the ex-detective,
