The arrest last night of A. A. Nordskog, a private detective, on a charge of tapping
a telephone wire leading to the Burns National Detective office, in the Hinckley block,
promises to develop into a sensational case involving certain higher-ups. The evidence
against Nordskog and involving others was gathered by the Burns agency and the warrant
for the arrest was issued by Prosecutor Murphy, who announced today that he would push
the prosecution of all involved to the limit.
Nordskog;, it appears, was employed by the Burns agency during the Hanford investi
gation but was discharged ju>t before the congressional investigation of Hartford wan be
gun. It is alleged that soon after his discharge he was employed by person* interested
in saving Ifanford, and sensational charges of attempts to tamper with witnesses in the
Ifanford case are made in this connection.
According to Prosecuting Attor
ney Murphy, Detective Nordskog.
while not broaching the subject In
definite terms, put a number of
suggestive questions to him relut
ing to the prosecuting attorney's
policy with regard to promising Im
munity when he made his state
ment about the wire tapping Satur

His Statement to Murphy.
Referring to his conversation
with John F Murphy, prosecuting
attorney. In the presence of Deputy
Prosecutor White and Manager
Walter Thayer of the Durni agency,
yesterday, N'ordskog admitted that
he "might have said" to Murphy
something to this effect:
"I don't see why you are squeez
ing me. I'm only a small fish."
"I did not ask Murphy whether
l.e would prosecute any accom
plices of mine In thle case " \ordn
kog said. this morning. "I merely
talked to him in a general way to

rights. I put a hypothetical caae to
Murphy, asking him what the usual
procedure was In a case where
more than one was Involved. 1 -Ask
ed him whether all Involved were
equally prosecuted. Murphy replied
that It was up to the prosecutor."
Nordskog admitted he was cmu
tloned by Prosecutor Murphy that
whatever he would say ma> he used
against him Then, referring re
sentfully to Murphy and Thayer,
be said:
"When the whole story la told
