WHAT SAVED CHICAGO
FROM A BLOODY WAR
f
Action of Mayor and Council Saved Chicago From a
Hired Army of Thieves, Thugs and Gunmen
Brought Here to Make War on the Street t
Railway Employes.
BY N. D. COCHRAN
During the newspaper lockout in 1912 The Pay Book
called attention to the fact that the Chicago Publisher
Association had hired thugs, gunmen and convicted
criminals as a private army, and that these thieves and
crooks had been sworn in as deputy policemen and
deputy sheriffs.
Two murders were committed by some of these gun
men during the newspaper trouble; and the "eminently
respectable" publishers who hired the murderers were
indirectly and morally-responsible for those murders
