VOL. 2, NO. 257 Chicago, Wednesday, July 30, 1913 ONE CENT GRAND JURY RETURNS INDICTMENT AGAINST TRIBUNE'S GUNMAN Vicious Fight of Tribune to Save Scalp of Max Annen berg, Its Boss Gunman, Fails After Jurors Hear Testimony of Schartenberg, the Deputy Slugger. The indictment charging Max An nenberg, chief gunman for the Trib une, with assault upon Alexander Belford with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, was returned by the grand jury today before Judge Adelor J. Petit. Bail for the gunman was fixed at $10,000 and a capias issued for his arrest. Annenberg was not arrested, how ever. He took his own time about making his arrangements for a bondsman and then walked into the Criminal Court at 2 o'clock this after noon and surrendered himself. Yesterday the' Tribune gunman strode through the corridors of the Criminal Court building talking loud ly about what he had done and ought to have done to Detective Carlin. Carlin was the detective of the state's attorney's office from -whose custody Annenberg tried to take by force Charles Schartenberg, another Tribune slugger, wanted to testify before the grand jury in connection, with the shooting of Belford. "Aw, I should have made that Car lin guy eat his gun," said Annenberg. "As it was I took it away from the and shoved it in his stom ach just to see him crawl." This was hardly true. Annenberg did not take Carlin's gun from him. In fact, Carlin never had to show his gun. When Annenberg was try ing to push past Carlin to Scharten berg, Carlin merely put his right hand on his hip pocket. Annenberg crawled. He backed off immediately, sneering, but back ing off nevertheless. Later, when Schartenberg tried to break away from Carlin and grabbed Detective Flannigan by the throat, Annenberg did not come to his help.
