calling Chief Healey and asking him
some pointed questions the city wants
to hear answered," said an alderman
of the police committee. "The com

tell what he knows, it is reported.
That Hoyne would make a sensation
al witness is well understood, as it is
expected he has specific facts which
he may let out to throw more light

Chief Healey made department ap
pointments. "I had hopes of the co-operation of
the police department," said Hoyne at
that time, "in view of the promises
made to me by Chief of Police Healey.

sonally, but it is plain that the agents
of organized criminality therefore,
through indirect influences, are again
in complete control of the police de

fore a strike has been called, as in
the case of the garment workers this
week. Kennedy says he will ask why

and talk it over with them before
sending men out with clubs to UBe on
