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
Bail for the gunman was fixed at
$10,000 and a capias issued for his
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.
