CHII'AIH),Oct. 12. Olio of the bohloat,^most corrupt antl infamous plots cv,r^brought to tin- notice of tin- public, was^outlined by State's Attorney I^^iig^-^mrki r's right-hand limn, Mr. Mills, this^afternoon. The conspiracy not only in^^cludes county olllciuls hut ontsitlers of^high standing. Several arrests have al^^ready Imhmi made anil more will follow.^Not content with the bribery of men, an^attempt bus been made to drag even in^^nocent women into the plot and thus gain^the end which the friends of the defense^ill the ( roniii case have been working for,^for the past live months.
Stute'sAttorney Longoiieeker desires^me to say,^ said Mr. Mills, who was com^^missioned by th^' state's attorney to^talk to n-portcrs, ^that this plot^has not Ih-cii disclosed In-fore Is-cause it^would have defeated justice had the in^^formation we iMwtsossod Ih-cii made pul^-^lie. We eulllint now give any names or^details, but the outline of this conspiracy^can now Is- given to the public. It will^Ik- rcniemhenil,^ r-ontlnued the attorney,^^that on last Wednesday afternoon an^honest young man who is employed as^forwunling clerk in an establishment in^this city, was examined and excused for^cause | It is understood, though not stated^by Attorney Mills, that the name of the^venireman who it was attempted to hriltc^ist^. S. T.tebapiMit. He is foreman for ft.^N. Pago A ^ o., oil inerehuiitM. of this^city |.
Thursdayaftortustii,^ said Mr. Mills, ^a^very prominent citizen of Chicago entered^the court room ami privately communi^^cated to the counsel for the state that his^foreman, the venire man in t|iiestion. Is -^fore lM-iug called to the jury box bail Is-eu^approached by the hudilf of tin-court with^an oiler of **l.iMi to vote for the acquitul of^the defendants. He said: 'This is not a^ciM-k and bull story, and I bring it Is-fon-^you ill the interest of public justice.
Hethen went away ami the next^morning one of tin-counsel for the state^went (town to the factory of the man^whose foreman hail Is-eu olforcil the^bribe, and the moment In- saw the fore^^man he recognized him as the mall whose^honesty ami iudc|iemh-iiee had impressed^itself upon the counsel for the slate while^lie was sitting in jury box. Tin^^man made a full statement and was re-^t|i|cstcd by the counsel for tin- stab- to^come to the state's attorney's otticc ami^re|^cut his statement in full. The man^with u*ars in his eyes said: 'It involves a^friend, but if it involved myself I would^uphold the law and order.
Thegist of his statement, which he^subsequently gave to the state's attorney,^is as follows: In olsdiotioo to the sum^^mons he came to the court house Tuesday^afternoon and Hat ill the ulllc-room. bill^was not called, lb- came again Wednes^^day morning ami stayed in the nntc-room^again. At about 1^^ o'elcM-k a man came
fromth^urt room into the uutc-room
whowas an old friend of tin- venire man.^The fact also ap|M-ars thai the wives of^the two men wen- friends Is fore they^were married.
Tin'man who came from the court^^room suggested to the venire man that^they go out ami have a cigar. While^there the man from the cotirt-riMtm said^to the venire man, *l^o you want to make^money v' The venire man innocently^answered, 'Certainly I do.^ 'Very well.^You get on the jury and stick for acquit^^tal ami you will have ^1.^^^^. The contract^and arrangement can Is- carried out with^your wife. It call Im- arranged that she-^shall wear a certain colored dress if the^money is to be paid her on a c ertain day.^If the money is not paid her on that day^she is to wear a dill'crcut colored dress^anil the contract is to he off.'
Thevenire man turned reproachfully^to his friend and said. '1 am not that kind^of a man.' Wlien-U|siti the huihir re^^plied, ^1 am working for the court.' He^then pointed to a buggy standing outside^and remarked, 'That is my horse and^ixiggy.'
Attin- noon adjournment the venire^man went luck to his place of business^and subsequently returned to the court^house at 2 o'clock, after which In- was de^^tained and returned to the jury box,^whore he remained until half past four^o'clock when In- was excused for cause.^Ho loft the court house intending to re^^turn to bis place of business. On leaving^the court house he was met on the steps^loading to the sidewalk by the man who^hud attempted to bribe him. The man^turned to him and said: 'Where were^you this noon. I looked everywhere for^you. They said, we will make it five^thousand, and, damn him, make him^do it.'
ClIt was too late, howerer. The venire^mull had Ih-cii excused for cause, but he^at once returned to his place of business,^having reproached the man for putting^such a low estimate ii|m^ii h ni ami re^^ported the facts to his employer, who tin-^following day re|k^rted it to the pros^svu-^tion. Pursuant to an appointment the^venire man attended at the st ^te attor^^ney's office, anil having made a full state^^ment of everything that bs^k place was^requested to step into nil ante-room ami^the bailiff was summoned. He proved to^be one of the bailiffs of the criminal^court, who, during the trial or the attempt^to procure a jury has Ih-cii in charge of^one of the five prisoi ers, Cougblin. The^bailiff was questioned by tin- state's attor^^ney and his associates, but profesststl pro^^found ignorance until tin- venire man was^called from the ante room. The venire^man was requested to repeat the stat,-^tuent be had made which ho did, wbero-
thebaliff made a complete confes-^In which be implicated several^prominent persons, also another bailiff.^The attorneys for the prtsweution. to^^gether with ( htef Hubbard and other*, at^onee went to work on the case and bare^disclosed one of the most deliberate at^^tempts to corrupt a Jury and to defeat the^law of Illinois which ^^lie attention.
ChicAlio, Oet. S. ^Confessions have^been math* here thia very day^ said Mr.^Mills at a stihac^pi^iit interview lab- this^afternoon, ^these confessions are from^six to ton in number. They are absolute,^giving us the whole miserable conspiracy.^They reveal a uiowt damnable organisa^^tion against the law of the land, a con^^spiracy against the jurisprudence of this^country', that will startle the continent^when it is thoroughly known, a conspiracy^of rami Ileal ion. of audacity, a conspiracy^involving men whose names will Im- a sur^^prise to the country. It is no exaggera^^tion when I say that you cannot magnify^the damnable outrage of the conspiracy.^In the taking oil Dr. Cronin and tin- man^^ner in which it was done the whole world^was startled. This second conspiracy will^alike startle the whole world. It is an as^^sault on the very integrity of our institu^^tions.
Accordingto the statement made^by lawyer Mills it was the^bailiir Solomon who llrst attempted to^hrilx-a citizen iTschappati whowasuftor-^wurd to Im- summoned as a juror. Solo^^mon also is the mail whose confession^was obtained. Solomon turned over to^the state attorney a list of names and uil-^ilresscs, said to Im* pros-m-ctivc corrupt^jurors, (inly two of tin- list hail yet Im-oii^summoned ami neither had yet Is-en ex^^amined. Solomon said tin- list had Im-oii^furnished him by ItuiliiT Hanks, while^they wer-i- seated in tin- court room,^just Is-hind the Cronin suspects,^whom they wore guarding. Hanks had^said ftM*m would be given for u ^IIxetl^^juror, half to tin- mull in the Im.x uml half^to the bailill s. Last night the men tin the^list wen- interview^-d by the chief of |k^-^licc. One man stated that he had Im-oii^approached with an offer of -a-j.ori to go^on the jury' by Prod M. Smith, a hardware^man. Another eitisen was also similarly^approached by a oitiioii. i ^'IloiincH's^part, as told by Mr. Mills, was similar to^that of Smith's. He sounded at least fine^man and offered him^ )'Don mil.
r'bnwas arr.-st.il early in the evening, is^said to have confessed that a person un^^derstood to Is- Kavaiiaugh guaranteed^that the money ^dfere^l would Im- forth^^coming. Tin- supposed corrupted venire^men wore carefully histruot.il as to their^maimer while being oxaiuiii.il in court.^lM-iug told how they should answer ami to^Im- gruff with the lawyer for the defense.^The olllcial list of indictments given out^about lii::*^ p. in. oontain.il six names:^Solomon, Smith, Kavanaugb, ^ ^'Doiiuoll^and Joseph Kohn. The latter is a fruit-^doulcr, who it is suid was to go on the^jury and get Sl.ntll from Hanks.
At7 oVIoek this evening the grand^jury had agreed to return indict^^ments against Alexander J. Hanks,^M.o-k Salomon, lied W. Smith,^ami Tom Kavaiiaugh Hanks has^Imi-ii bailiir for eight or nine years.^Solomon was up|m^int^il bailill^ a yoaralld^a half ago. Smith is unknown about^tin- court I ease, and Tom Kav^^aiiaugh was engineer at the county insane^asylum during the ^Is m sllors' itgiliic^^and was mixed up their ease. Ho is now^in business and strange la say, his partner^was summoned for jury duty, but was |s-r-^omptorily challenged by the state wlicti^his connection with Kavaiiaugh was^learned.
Atlfth indictment was agreed upon^against Jeromiall f i'Domiell. who was re^^cently appointed a ganger at South Chi^^cago. At 1^:J'^ it was reported that^two uddit iouul indictments had Is-en^made.
Aboutmidnight, when the s|Mi-ial grand^jury adjourned, their report was short and^formal in character, except for an intima^^tion that tin- jurors b^ lievcil the plot to be^more widespread than was indicated by^the six indictments returned.
