BING! BIFF! SWAT! ERBSTEIN
HOYNE ROW GETS HOT
Beaten in first two rounds of his
battle to have State's Att'y Hoyne
and his aids arretted for illegal arrest
of Mrs. Helen Evers, Chas. E. Erb
stein today declared he was ready to
make the fight as many rounds long
as there are judges in Cook county,
for he insisted he would go to every
judge and to the supreme court in
his attempt to have Hoyne arrested.
Chief Justice Harry Olson of the
municipal court was in personal
charge of the Hoyne-Erbstein pro
ceedings today. As soon as Judge
Iia Buy late yesterday refused to is
sue warrants for Hoyne on Mrs.
Evers' complaint, Judge Olson issued
,- subpoenas for six men whom Erb
stein wants to appear before Judge
Olson this afternoon in the third
round of the battle.
There is plenty of other action.
Hoyne intimated today that his big
drive on the 'city hall has hardly be
gun. His main points of attack will
be' accusations of: N
Favoritism in enforcement of Sun
day closing; political abuses of civil
service system; reappearance of the
old vice district. ,
Hoyne is confident that the
Thompson-Lundin city administra
tion is playing with Sunday closing,.
civil service and vice in an attempt to I
corral votes to put Harry B. Miller
over for state's att'y at the Novem
ber election. He also holds the, city
administration responsible for the
Erbstein-O'Donnell activities, which
he brands conspiracy, for the same
"I have evidence lhat ward leaders
are passing the word among saloon
v keepers that if Miller is elected
state's att'y they will be allowed to
keep their side doors open' on Sun
day," said Hoyne.
"Hoyne's charges that the civil
service is being put to political uses
is" nonsense," said Mayor Thompson.
"The Sunday closing question was
fiettled-once and for all long ago."
Hoyne Issued the following state
ment to the newspapers today:
"I have read the various scurrilous
statements made by Erbstein and
O'Donnell in the morning newspa
pers. It is a disgrace to the city of
Chicago and county of Cook that
these men have been permitted to
practice law so long and reflect upon
"I have never had any private feud
ojr quarrel -with either of these men.
I have encountered their antipathy
by merely performing my duty as a
public prosecutor in seeking to pre
vent their carrying on their trade of
subordination of perjury and -fixing
"If the public or press dignify with
seribus consideration statements
made by these men, It indicates a
civic apathy or indifference whichis
hard tp understand. These men
have raked the penitentiaries, jailb,'
alleys and gutters for material to be
used in the coming campaign against
me and in the interest of my oppo
nent. I shall not further advertise
hem by mentioning them by name.
Maclay Hoyne, State's Attorney."
