In the suit filed in Chicago, the defendants are William Jackson, H. A. Weld of Chicago. C. O. Sturtz of Kewanee, and I. M. .Magill. Attor neys Wel'd and Sturtz are alleged by the defendant to have assisted in draw ing the indictments. Mr. Weld is now living in Chicago, which is Mr. Mc Caskrin's reason for starting the sec ond action there. Although only the praecipe has been filed here, Mr. McCaskrin in a state ment declares that the actions are brought to "get at the bottom of an alleged conspiracy to Indict me." It will be remembered that following a mass meeting on Market square March 2, 1912, which is said to have been addressed by Mr. McCaskrin, P. H. Wells and Edward Gardner, a mob at tacked the city hall. A special grand jury was summoned by Judge Frank D. Ramsay to Investigate the disturb ance, and two indictments were return ed April 20, charging McCaskrin, Wells and Gardner with "assault with intent to commit murder." One true bill charged that the defendants made an assault upon Mayor H. M. Schriver, Commissioner Archie Hart, Chief James Brinn, and William Caulfield. William Fitzslmmons. Herman Seh nert, Fred Gruby, John Kinney, Jo seph Frankhouser, all members of the police force. The other charges an as sault on Mayer Schriver. Both of these indictments have long since been quashed,-but Mr. McCask rin is insisting upon damages from those be claims are responsible for the indictments. He claims that at the time of the riot he was home asleep and that he did not assault any one. In the course cf a statement given cut today by Mr. McCaskrin relative to the suits he says: "William Jackson. I. M. Magill. W. H. Ashdown and J. G.
