"Gleason is wrong in saying that Hoyne has disregarded information brought to him concerning disorderly houses," said Blake today. "The only information ever brought to Hoyne was the stereotyped information which the Committee of Fifteen al ways gives concerning a few houses that any small boy could locate.
