Pittsburg Of fenders Hurry , Into Court to Accept the
Offer of the District Attorney to Tell What They
Know and Escape From Prison Bars Many
Men "Higher Up" May Be Caught.
Pittsburg, Pa., March 22. Anxious to
receive an immunity "bath, three former
members of the common council ap
peared before judge Frazer early to
day and pleaded no defence to the
charges of having received money for
their votes in the passage of the
Hankland street vacation ordinance.
Two of the men who appeared were not
even under indictment.
All were given suspended sentences.
That the graft investigation is but
started well on its way, ds the predic
tion of thoso who profess to know.
It is persistently rumored today that
"men higher up" will be given full
advantage of the district attorney's plea
to "come in out of the wet" before an
other 24 hours have rolled around.
Then the detectives and police force
will get busy and hunt the rest of them
down. It is generally believed that the
little "captain," Johnny Kleine's con
fession has not been all told and that
Its complete telling will still further
rip apart city politics and politicians.
Before noon nine former members of
the council had "come dn out of the
wet," and confessed to the acceptance
of bribes for their votes. No stories of
large sums were related today, the men
appearing, confessing to the acceptance
of from ?150 to $230 for their vote.
