WED AFTER HIS DIVORCE
The troubles of wealthy William J.
Forch, real estate dealer of Oak
Park, who has offices at 8 S. Dear
born st., took a strange turn yester
day. After 17-year-old Elizabeth Ru

PACKING COMPANY INDICTED
ON REBATE CHARGE
In 1909 the attorney general of the
United States told the meat trust to
stop filing false claims against rail
roads to get rebates.
Recently rumors came to the no
tice of the interstate commerce com
mission. They were investigated.
Yesterday two indictments were
handed Judge Landis by March fed
eral grand jury.
The first indictment names the
Cudahy Packing Co., John McNaugh
ton, head of the railroad department,
and Jas. Robb, his ass't, who has
charge of claims. The second in
cludes the railroad and two branch
Ed Cudahy, pres. of the company,

the company has paid $10,000,000
freight charges in the past three
years and that it was nonsense, to
think that the company would go to
that length to get $5,000, which is
the amount in controvedsy in the in
dictments. o o
FIRE DEPARTMENT CANDIDATE
SAYS HE WAS HAZED
Peter O'Boyle, 2212 N. Racine av.,
sewer digger, strapping big, and,
needless to say, Irish, aspired tobe
a fireman. A few weeks ago he filed
his application and then went to a
gymnasium, Lomax pL, near Fifth
av., to train for the physical test.
Yesterday O'Boyle went to Chief
O'Connor to lay a complaint. It
seems that city firemen put O'Boyle
through a hard series of hazings.
While held down by two others, hot
lard, mixed with lampblack, was
poured on his bare skin, severely
O'Brien went to Chief O'Connor,
not to report the physical torment
he endured, but to complain that the
firement persisted in calling him
harp" and "flannel mouth."
The annual seed catalogue is in
our midst, on time.
