Suspended After Investigation
Connection With Relief Fund
. St. Louis, March 16. Chief of
Police Edmond P. Creecy and Lieu
tenant Thomas J. McCormack, pres
ident of the St. Louis Relief associa
tion, were suspended yesterday after
noon. The charges against them
were not officially disclosed, but it is
said that their suspension- may be
traced to the friendly relations be
tween Creecy and John M. Healy,
the Police Relief association's de
posed secretary, before and after the
beginning of the investigation of the
relief association's affairs which has
resulted in the Indictment of Healy
on a charge of embezzling $11,000 of
Its funds." The police board at a
secret session yesterday was inform
ed. It Is Baid, that Creecy kept Healy
in constant touch with the progress
of the "investigation, and that Healy
and his wife called up Creecy by tel
ephone almost daily.
Lieutenant McCormack, who suc
ceeded John T. Nlcolay, resigned, as
association president, was for a time
in charge of the investigation. When
others took up the probe they found
several pages torn from one of the
books, for the purpose, it is alleged,
of destroying incriminating evidence.
Reports have been r blished to the
effect that the relief association
shortage may total $100,000.

will be, and uphold the reputation the

The play this year is an unusually
good one, containing three acts, and
is very rich in comedy. The scene of
action is in the home of Sir Geoffrey
Myrleton, a representative from the
Ninth district, in Washington, D. C. -
Hon. Geoffrey Myrleton has brought
together and financed an amateur the
atrical company and at the opening of
the performance is giving a private en
tertainment called "The Fatal Shot,"
written by Vere Lee, an amateur actor
and member of the cast, at the home of
Sir. Geoffrey. .
An Unexpected Visit.
Elisha Basset and Silas Jervis, two
of Myrleton's constituents from Ram
bleton, who have put bonds into the
keeping of Geoffrey, come upon the
scene during the entertainment to
speak -to Myrleton about the invest
ments. Hon. Geoffrey tries to put them
off, being placed in an embarrassing
position, as he has a house filled with
guests. Silas and Elisha refuse to be
put off, and Myrleton has to confess to
them that the bonds have been either
lost or stolen, and that he has employ
ed an amateur detective. Plnkerton
Case, to Investigate. Plnkerton is truly
an amateur, and during his detections
he suspects Ensign Jack Meredith, a
secret lover of Betty Vance, Geoffrey's
ward. Of course, his suspicions are
groundless, and when he finds this out
he suspecta everybody and anybody,
and soon has deacons and church wo
men involved. Many perplexing and
amusing situations arise during the
unwinding of the plot.
