IS THE BOARD OF PARDONS AFRAID TO GIVE
OUT ITS DECISION IN THE ENRIGHT CASE?
Accusation That Enright Went to Pen Through Conspir
acy of Police and Trust Newspapers Was Made a
Week Ago When Will Decision Be Given Out? t
"Why is the Bpard of Pardons taking so long to come to a decision in
the case of Moss" Enright?
The Enright hearing was held, after several delays, one week ago. Yet
there Is not even a hint as to-when the decision of the board will be given
Is the Board of Pardons afraid to give out its decision? Is it waiting
until the case and the accusations made at the hearing last Monday have
been forgotten? Is it hesitating because the Employers' Association so
bitterly fought the granting of a pardon to Enright?
The accusation that Moss Enright went to the penitentiary through a
conspiracy between the police and the trust newspapers of Chicago was
made directly enough at the hearing last Monday.
"I know that Fred Irish, the epilep
tic whosatwelfth hourtestirnonysent
Moss Enright to prison," cried Attor
ney Charles E. Erbstein, "was found
at the County Hospital by Harry
Brolaski," the so-called 'reformed
gambler,' who was acting for Former
Police Inspector Nick Hunt.
'"I know that it was the calumny
spread, by the- Chicago newspapers,
coupled with the work of the police,
that sent Enright to Joliet.
14And I know that John B. North
rup.former assistant state's attorney,
who is supposed to be presenting the
case of the state to you, really is here
for the Employers' Association,
5ibkh wants Enright kept in jail that
Ujffonlsbpr may be discredited."
"Attorney Northrup has dared to
call this "" man a slugger," cried
Former Governor Richard E. Yates.
"Let .me tell you, gentlemen, that the
only sluggers in Chicago are the slug
gers in the employ of the newspapers."
It is not well that the occurrences
and revelations at the Enright hear
ing last Monday should be forgotten
while the Board of Pardons is delay
ing its decision.
