HOYNE THREATENS TO INDICT
Indictment for the mayor unless
he withdraws his nominees and po
lice from the school board rooms was
promised last night in a hot state
ment from State's Att'y Hoyne. If
the mayor were"indicted and convict
ed of malfeasance he would auto
matically be removed from office.
The Hoyne interview follows:'
"If the mayor shows his first
gleam of intelligence and withdraws
his appointees, it may not be neces
sary to prosecute him.
"He must turn over the school
board rooms to the old board and
recognize Angus- Roy Shannon as
counsel and Lewis E. Larson as sec
retary. He must also recognize that
Percy B. Coffin is out of office and in

have not decided whether as a mat
ter of r public policy to proceed
against the mayor. I have not ob
tained official verification of the

school system probably will be saved
from the City Hall rooters. The
council should be thanked for rem

on orders from the mayor, to bolster
up and defend the 'Handy and Solid
Six' in future depredations.
"The police guard is to resist, I am
told,,a supposed force of invaders it
is feared the state's attorney is mo
bilizing. "The state's attorney is not drill- 1
ing any armv to go in the citadel of
the City Hall gang or the board of
education outpost, which is now ille
'If necessary the grand jury will
attend to the situation. Mayor
Thompson must appoint six decent
additional board members."
