ment of the money and said it had al
ways been done in the department
and was nothing to hide.
Attacks of Hoyne and others on
O'Brfen and the fact that O'Brien re
signed under fire without trial on the
charges made against him don't
square with the advertising letter
where O'Brien's good name is var
nished up by Chief Healey in these
"He bears the highest reputation in
this community both as a police offi
cer and citizen. His ability as a de
tective is nation-wide and his hon
esty has never been questioned."
O'Brien's own letter recommend
ing himself as a detective says in
"My long experience has shown me
the grave danger of employing irre
sponsible detectives or investigators
whose reports or evidence are ques
tionable, and whose work and meth
ods even the supreme court has found
occasion to justly criticise. I have
taken care to surround myself with
thoroughly honest detectives, both
male and female."
In his much-quoted statement of
June 15 State's Att'y Hoyne declar
ed a "crime trust" was operating in
Chicago and Hoyne protested the ap
pointment by Chief Healey of O'Brien
as detective chief.
WIFE AND DAUGHTER KILLED
WITH AX HE'S SOUGHT
New York, Jan. 27. Following
dinner and theater party celebrating
their husband and father's return
from Chicago, bodies of Mrs. Rebecca
Pullman, 50 and her daughter, Mrs.
Gertrude Bazel, 25, their skulls
crushed with an ax, were found in
living room of their home.
Nathan Pullman disappeared dur
ing afternoon, telling housekeeper
his wife was ill and he was going for
medicine. Later the housekeeper
called an officer. They stumbled over
Mrs. Bazel'S body. The woman was
dressed for the street and is believed
to have been killed as she entered the j
I room to visit her month. Mrs. Pull
man's body lay across the bed. New
ax and a hatchet, bloodstained, lay
under the bed. There were few signs
of a struggle. Fingerprints upon
towel with which murderer washed
will identify him, police believe.
None of Pullmans' relatives knew
of any family quarrel that could have
led to murder of the two women.
The Pullmans came to New York
from Chicago three days ago. They
had lived in Chicago at 1922 Hum
boldt av. and at 3850 Langley av.,
according to the Chicago police, who
