HOYNE'S DOUBTS TRUTH OF
AUTO BAND HEAD'S STORY
If the story of Abraham Raymer,
against whom there are several
charges of larceny, is true, several
policemen and others engaged in or
ganized auto thievery may be indict

be chairman of judiciary committee,
Curtis of appropriations, Cornwall of
insurance, if he is not named presi
dent pro tem, and Dailey of railroads.
