ductor Frank Witt, a fellow trades
Nelson said Daniel L. Cruice came
to this city as a common sailor on
the Great Lakes, a member of the
Seamen's Union, that he afterward
entered the railway mail service as
a clerk, studying law while engaged
in that service, and that never since
being admitted to practice law has
he ever accepted a fee from a Special
Interest concern. He pointed out that
Daniel L. Cruice was the organizer
of the Municipal Ownership League,
and was the first president of the Ini
tiative and Referendum League, and
that he had always given his time,
his ability and whatever little finances
he had to any cause that stood for
bringing control of the government
closer to the people.
He cited a number of instances
wherein Daniel L. Cruice had sacri
ficed opportunity for personal gain
by remaining steadfast and true to
the interests of the working men and
women. Joseph Kemmerling, 3240
Wentworth Av.
Details of the operations of a
clever gang of "con" men who chose
wealthy cattlemen in the stockyards
district as their victims has been
brought to light through the arrest
of a man who gave his name as Fred
Cook. He told Samuel Mohler, a
wealthy cattle dealer, that he was
president of the "Horse Racing Clear
ing House Association."
To prove his contention that he
was on the "inside" of a good thing,
Cook took $15 from Mohler and next
day returned $20, the extra $15 being
"winnings." He then induced the
westerner to come across with $3,000.
Thomas Hogan, a policeman, saw
the pair talking and became suspic
ious. He made friends with Mohler
and succeeded in gaining his confi
dence. Just as the cattleman turned
over a check for the $3,000 Cook was
taken into custody. , uu , .
