WHAT THEY THINK OF CHICAGO
IN MENDOTA
The following story, reprinted from
the Mendota, HI., Buhetin, shows
what one of the downstate papers
thinks of "Chicago As a Summer Re
sort:" "Chief of Police Becket went to
Chicago on Friday accompanied by
Mr. Edgar Snyder. Their mission
was to bring the men who stole Mr.
Snyder's auo to Mendota for trial.
The state's attorney and several de
tectives thought they could get the
men for Mr. Becket. but saw trouble
ahead. The case had been called
for 9:30-a. m. and Mr. Becket had
been notified to come. He was there.,
but the men had their lawyers and
the judge was in sympathy with the
men and told our chief of police he
had no evidence which was sufficient
to hold these men. The judge post
poned the hearing and the men were
given bail. A few minutes later af
ter the men had hurried from the
building the judge abruptly dismissed
the case. That is Chicago justice to
officials in outside cities.
"Mr. Becket and Mr. Snyder
, thought it advisable to bring the auto
home, for this might be spirited away
and lost forever. . The car is not in
the best conditioi and the insurance
company will giye this proper con
sideration." o o
