For the second time within a year
the Daily News is accused of trying
to bulldoze judges into court deci
sions where the Chicago Title &
Trust Co. figures with a big money
A News editorial picturing the po
lice as heroes and Capt Streeter as
an outlaw was read in Judge Gra
ham's court yesterday by Att'y E. G.
Bower. It was stated, "The courts
should permanently abate this nui
sance." Much other advice was
given, so that any judge or jury try
ing the case might know what it is
that Victor Lawson, publisher of tho
News, wants done with Streeter.
Bower said:
"The man who wrote this editorial
has no right to tell the court what
should be done while this matter is
being heard. If the court had shown
a tendency to be unfair thus far in
the disposition of the case there
might be slight justification for such
an article as this. So long as the
court is fair and impartial there
ought to be a stop to these gentle
men throwing rocks at the court in
this manner.
"The gentleman who wrote this
should be called before this court and
reprimanded. He should be told that
during the pendency of this case it
is his business to keep hih mouth
"While the matter is still on trial,
evidence being heard, witnesses sum
moned and the court endeavoring to
determine what is the truth, this
newspaper informs the, court what J
its decision should be. The court is
instructed by a newspaper that its
duty is 'to take drastic action in
dealing with an outlaw through the
fact of whether or not Capt. Streeter
is an outlaw is to be determined by
this court
"I am one of those who stand for
freedom of the press. If the court's
procedure had been wrong or if this
newspaper wished to criticize the
court after a decision is made, no
fair-minded person would object
However, I repeat that during the
pendency of this cause in court, the
gentleman who wrote this Daily
News editorial intended to bulldoze
the court should be warned to keep
his mouth shut"
At a meeting of circuit court
judges in committee of the whole,
Judge Scanlan last year brought up
the question of calling in Daily News
editors to explain why an editorial
was printed telling the judges how
to act on Harris Keeler's request that
the bureau of public efficiency be
permitted to investigate Recorder
Eonnery's office. The Chicago Title
& Trust Co. was then named by Con
nery as the big interest involved.
