STATE'S ATT'Y'S OFFICE MAY
PROBE KAPPER KILLING
Possibilities of an investigation by
the state's att'y's office into the kill
ing of Sam Kapper were seen today
in the assigning of Ass't State's Att'y
Case to the Kapper inquest this after
noon. Case was detailed by State's Att'y
Hoyne to be in on the doings before
Police are looking for S.am and
Joseph Panichi, who, it is believed,
fired some shots. They are brothers
of Tony. The story runs that these
two were behind Sam Kapper when
he approached Green street, on Har
rison, and were handy with their guns
when trouble started.
Sam, it is claimed, is the man who
went into a. saloon to have his arm
bandaged after being shot Neither
of the two men could be reached af
home or at work today. Cap't Mc-.
Weeny claimed that the two men had'
offered to give themselves up today.
They are still out, however.
Pres. Sidney Hillman said this
morning that he was going to take
the whole shooting affair up with
State's Att'y Hoyne, as he could get
no satisfaction from the police.
Eight men and three women were
arrested at Jackson blvd. and Peoria
today for "loitering."'
NO MORE PARADES?
Will Acting Police Chief Schuettler
put the ban on any more garment
workers' parades? He so indicated
this morning when he told Sydney
Hillman, head of the garment forces,
that he would not allow any more
gatherings of the garment workers
on the streets. "The speakers have
got to curb their lingo," said Schuett
ler. "Peaceful picketing can go on,
but nothing doing on the gather
ings." The acting chief laid blame for the
Harrison street shooting affair on
speeches made by Hillman and others
and to strikers' gatherings.
Schuettlers' little speil was an at
tempted ball-out of Hillman.
