shoulder and an ungentle hand
searched his hip pocket, taking

the judge in the morning," said
the policeman. "You're under ar

persuaded him that it would be
just as well.
This morning Friedman was
brought before Judge Beitler,
who not long before had been

the last few days.

The police and the coroner say
jthey are .going to investigate the
report. It is to be hoped they do.
The Illinois Steel Co., which is
a branch of the trust, was cen

an explosion in which three men

The latest death in the plant

to a vat pf molten steel.
Martin Schroeder, 5918 Henry
st., Austin, fined $25 for running
"blind pig" in his home.
