CAP. STREETER FINALLY HAD
HIS PRIZE DAY
"We gave those varmints hell to
day," shouted Cap. Streeter to his
lawyers as he left Judge Brothers'
court yesterday, where he is on trial
for assault with intent to kiU. And
so he did.
Cap. Streeter meant the police of,
the Chicago avenue station who
have "pestered" him for 30 years,
ever smce the land he grabbed off
the north shore when his ship foun
dered became valuable.
As soon as the real estate sharks
and north shore plutes began to eye
his property the police became trou
blesome. Raids were made regularly,
the old captain was sent to Joliet
once, but was freed on a writ of
habeas corpus, and 30 buildings were
burned in the course of tie past
But Streeter had his day yester
day when he was on the witness
stand being tried for assaulting a de
tective who was in the raid on the
Streeter home on the 15th day of
November, 1915, when a woman em
ployed by the captain was shot in
the back by a policeman.
He called the police what he
thought they were; he called them
names that would have sent him to
jaU if it hadn't been Cap. Streeter
that used them And he said he was
out to get them.
Streeter is accused of hitting Det
Serg't W. P. Freeman, when Free
man with, a dozen other cbps, half
disguised as farmers, raided the
Streeter home on a Sunday morning,
beat the captain senseless with their
revolvers and shot anold woman.
His attorneys say they are going
to take up the case with Judge Lan
