baugh pulled the raid on the Tyson
apartments after a conference with
Walter Howey, city editor of the Chi
cago Tribune. The story was to have
been printed only in the Trib.
Since the release of the "first reel
of the Trib-Clabaugh yellow drama,
Clabaugh has bottled up all news for
the Trib. Other papers were forced
to find leaks elsewhere.
Immediately there was a snarling
from the rest of the Chicago editors.
.John C. Eastman, publisher of the
Chicago Journal, and Jim Keeley,
editor of the Herald, sent personal
telegrams of complaint to Pres. Wil
son, who ordered an investigation."
Clyne and Ass't Dis't Att'y Michael
Lt. Igoe made a quiet probe of the
whole affair. They found that the
entire story of the connection be
tween the crowd caught in the Ty
son raid' and an organized band of
tango swindlers was a pipe dream of
Clabaugh and a circulation booster
for the Chicago Tribune.
Clyne and Igoe admit they have
kicked on the manner in which Cla
baugh has gone about the whole af
fair. No evidence was placed in their
hands on which to go into court un
til two days after the Trib broke
forth with its yellow story. When
they tried to question Mrs. Regina
Klipper of Philadelphia yesterday,
Clabaugh kept her in his office four
hours until Igoe finally obtained a
summons from U. S. Com'r Foote.
U. S. Sen. Jas. Hamilton Lewis is
also peeved at the pipe dream. He is
reported to have demanded Cla-
baugh's head. His argument is that
the Clabaugh-Tribune fizzle has
made a laughing stock of the U. S.
dept of justice.
Mrs. Edward Donohue, wife of
"Doc" Donohue, is reported to have
taken steps to secure a divorce. It
is said she believed her husband a
traveling salesman. Mrs. Donohue is
a quiet, respectable looking woman.
She also threatens to . sue the Trib

The local end of th investigation
into tango swindles perked up a bit
when Mrs. Gertrude Woolf, 2319
Commonwealth av., and Mrs.' L.
Moore, 838 E. 45th, told of robberies
believed to have" been perpetrated by 4
members of the tango gang.
Mrs. Woolf is the wife of a travel
ing salesman, who admits she has a
fondness for cabarets when' hubby's
out of town. At Collins' cafe, 23d .
and Cottage Grove, she -met a man
she thinks is Jimmy Christian, '
caught in the Tyson raid. Later she
lost $4,160 worth of jewelry and $500
Mrs. Moore said George Irwin and
Wm. Butler came to her home bear
ing letters of introduction from New
York people. Later she missed $1,547
worth of jewelry."
The supposed "million-dollar
band" took an awful fall in the esti
mation of the police yesterday when
it was found they owed back rent at
the Tyson apts.
