Q
SWIFT & CO. WANT TO
LOUIS C. EHLE, WEAR
Why does Swift & Co., the meat
corporation earning $10,000,000 a
year, want to put Louis C. Ehle in a
suit of convict's clothes down at
Joliet?
Henry Veeder, chief of the lawyers
for Swift & Co., was the main witness
against Ehle in a trial that ended yes
terday. He testified that he, Veeder,
was responsible for bringing Ehle to
trial on the charge of embezzlement
"I took the case to the state's at
torney," said Veeder on the stand.
The jury brought in a verdict of
guilty. Attorneys Clarence Darrow
and Glenn Plumb will argue for a new
trial for Ehle tomorrow before Judge
Burke.
Though news of Ehle's conviction
is printed in all the trust papers to
day, there are not printed any of the
significant facts in the background.
Ehle, until April, 1914, was on rec
ord in the states of Texas and Arkan-

sas and in the income tax returns of
the federal government as the pro
prietor of the Louis C. Ehle Oil Mills,
Inc., with offices in the New York
Life bldg., of Chicago.
The mills, according to R. G. Dun
agency reports were worth $2,500,
000. Ehle himself was rated by the
Dun agency as the owner of the mills
and a high and classy, pay-cash mil
lionaire. Then came some kind of an inside
blow-up. All of a sudden the beef
trust, which in reality and behind the
scenes owned the mills, threw out
Ehle.
He was only their dummy. Since
then Swift & Co. men have been after
Ehle with one criminal charge after
another. He was acquitted of a for
gery charge. Now it's embezzlement
of $600 from small stockholders in a
corporation earning $10,000,000 a
year with Henry Veeder, Swift's head
lawyer, as chief witness.
