TEN CENTS PER WEEK SCORNS SUMMONS^ Postmaster General Payne Liable to Arrest If He Appears In Chicago. Justice of the Peace Says He Will Issue Warrant For The Official. Chicago, Aug. 25.Postmaster Gen eral Payne may possibly be hauled across the town here Friday afternoon willy-nilly, like one of his department's mail bags. Justice Hurley said during the day that if a showing was made to him that the postmaster general had, as re ported, treated one of the court sub poenas with scorn and refused serv ice from Constable Simon an attach ment would be issued for the federal official's arrest on the charge of con tempt of court. Justice Hurley was In earnest. "I can do nothing," he said, "until the case in which Mr. Payne is wanted as a witness comes up Friday, but if It is then shown that he has treated a summons and a constable of this court with disrespect I will order his arrest for contempt." The Washington official is wanted in court in the suit instituted by S. G. Brabrook against Senator Chauncey M. Depew because of the senator's sup posed connection with a publishing company which figures in the Bra brook case. Constable Simon met the postmaster general Tuesday and served a sum mons, also giving the government offi cial 50 cents court witness fee and 10 cents car fare. The postmaster gen eral said that he would not appear in court and would ignore the summons. Constable Simon said: "I did all I could in the case at the time. The only course now is to get an attachment and lug the postmaster general in force when the case comes up." Justice Hurley gave the words of Constable Simon authoritative back ing, intimating that if the postmaster general is in town Friday there will be a chance to see the dignity of a Chi cago justice court vindicated.
