Plney, III., July 27. Denying abso
lutely that he was the sweetheart of
Elizabeth Radcliffe or that he had
anything to do with her death, Roy
Hinterliter, held in the county jail
without bond on the charge of mur
der, says he was brought into the
affair as "the goat" to bear the bur
den of another's guilt.
His defense will be that it was not
he, but another, who was responsible
for the girl's condition; that the two
letters he received, one from the girl
begging him to come to her, and the
other from a friend of the girl, were
simply decoy letters dictated by the
man responsible for her condition.
Hinterliter, whose wealthy parents
have employed counsel to fight for
his freedom, repeats the story that
the girl complained of faintness
while they were riding and toppled
over in his arms.
The state, however, declares the
girl was dead before she was placed
in the buggy. They say she was
killed under an elm tree on the rock
road two miles south of town in an
effort to perform an abortion.

Jim Pugh apparently retains some
sort of a stand-in with the Thomp-son-Lundin
crowd in spite of reports
to the contrary. Although the cor
poration counsel yesterday decreed
that the city could enter into no con
tract to provide amusement on the
municipal pier, which knocks out
dances and lectures, the harbor
board gave Pugh a contract to run
a style show on the pier Aug. 25 and
26. Jim is to kick In only $125 a day
for the privilege. This ought to give
Pugh a chance to get back some of
themoney he spent on Thompson's
campaign for mayor. Civic workers"
are Indignant over the ruling, which
knocks out dances for the winter.
They threaten to start a campaign g
against the ruling of Sam Ettelson. ''

The rights of the Saddle and Cycle
club to the exclusive use of the lake
shore abutting its ground will be
made the matter of a court test. At
torney Felix J. Streyckmanns, rep
resenting the family of Willie Ulrey,
who was fatally wounded by the
shears thrown by the club's garden
er, will fight the club.
Streyckmanns received advice yes
terday from a lake short property
owner that under the old "sailors'
law" any one has the privilege any
where of walking along the beach.
The , silk-stocking directorate of
the club disputes this right They
contend no one but members of the
club has any right to step foot on
the beach in front of the clubhouse.
It was when Xlrey and several boy
companions came out of the lake,
because two of the boys were tired
and hadJ.o be assisted from the wa
ter, that Nicholas Moga threw the
shears that later caused Willie's
death from lockjaw.
Sam'l Kassel, att'y for the Boys'
Brotherhood Republic, conferred
with Ass't State's Att'y Duval, who
will handle the prosecution of Moga,
yesterday. Duval assured him that
Hoyne's office would see that justice
Is done in the case regardless of the ())
efforts of Colin C. H. Fyffe and other
directors of the club to save Moga as
a justification of the club's exclu
sive right to the beach.
