"Woman" Witnesat Grand
Jury Hearing: Looksf
Much Like Man
St. Louis Reporter Says He
Is Willing to Tel! What
He Knows -
CHICAGO, July 8..-- AP) .
A. myiterlons witness, ' dressed as
a woman, bqt with the physique of
a man, today appeared before the
lOTestiratinr eommitee lnTestlaat
lng- the assassination of Alfred
Llngie, Tribune crime reporter.
' This strange person, heavily
relied and wearing, goggles, lent
drama to the Inquiry but pro
jded bo public information to
ward aolatlon of the ease.
Appearing " unexpectedly, the
newcomer was taken Into the of
fices of Charles F. Rathbun,. Tri
bune attorney and special, assist
ant state's attorney. After more
than an hour of conference the
Tailed person . was taken to the
detective bureau. :
Photographs taken .of the wit
ness as she left the Investigator s
office disclosed unusual features
indicating the veiled person might
be a man, disguised to frustrate
recognition. The photograph re
vealed her as of unusually large
stature for a woman, the photo
grapher said.
A reporter for the Times who
saw the witness transferred from
the investigators' office to the de
tective bureau, said he found In
the police car afterward a card
engraved with the name "Ierne
Kelly", Minneapolis.
Meantime, Louis, Clement!, re
puted underworld character who
police said was wanted for ques
tioning about the Ungle ease,
walked Into the detective bureau
and gave himself up to Chief 1 of
Detectives John Norton. He was
held for investigation.
The grand Jury investigation of
the Llngle slaying went forward
with the opening of an inquiry
by the Chicago Church federation,
which launched a secret investi
gation of its own. "
A dispatch from St. Louis said
Harry Brnndldge, reporter for a
St. Louis newspaper, who wrote
several articles charging "unpro
fessional conduct on unnamed
Chicago newspapermen, was will
ing to go before the grand Jury,
but saw no reason for a prelim
inary conference with the state's
attorney. Brnndldge, basing his
articles on the alleged alliance of
Llngle -with certain gangsters and
officials, contended other Chicago
newspapermen were "racketeers."

Nothing Below . Class B Is
Effort Proposed at
Meeting Here
Nothing lower than B grade
milk for bottling purposes in Sa
lem is the desire of the milk pro
ducers association' which met at
the Marion hotel Tuesday even
ing. The new city milk ordinance
which is to go into effect July 17
provides for C and D grade milk
to be brought to the distributing
plant for pasteurising. This can
then be sold as grade 8 pasteuris-ed.-
The producers however believe
that all milk should meet the
standard for Grade B raw and the
members of the association pres
ent went on record as favoring a
united movement to bring all milk
brought to Salem for bottling- pur
poses to this standard.
New Ordinance in
Effect July 17
The new milk ordinance will go
into effect July 17 but producers
will be allowed 80 days in which
to comply with it. The produ
cers did not express the wish that
the ordinance be changed but
rather that the association should
strive to deliver no milk below
the B grade.
The producers were seemingly
pleased with the agreement reach
ed on. Monday with the distribu
tors whereby a price of 2.I0 per
hundred will be received for B
grade four per cent milk.

mARBYTOWN, N. Y July 8. (AP) The years com
JL pleted another victory today as John D. Rockefeller on
his 91st birthday receive! a congratulatory message from
his one-time bitter foe, "Mother- Jones, labor leader.
Less than a score of those patient, invincible years have
passed since "Mother" Jones went to jail after her denuncia
tion, or tne Rockefellers a de-
nunelation delivered in the white
heat of her wrath that flamed
during the Colorado mine wars.
But "Mother" Jones is 100
years old now, peacefully living
out what Is left of life for her in
a quiet, secluded country home In
And John D. Rockefeller is el,
a mua ana benevolent old gen
tleman, who dispenses millions of
dollars and hundreds of bright
new dimes as he lives on toward
the century mark.
So today from Silver Springs,
Md., to Pocantico Hills, N. Y.,
came the following message that
only time could make possible:
"Congratulations on the arriv
al of your 91st birthday. Thank
God, we have some men in the
world as good as you. We never
needed them as much as we do
today. Most sincere wishes that
you may be blessed with many
The Rockefellers made the first
move in the peace that was final
ly concluded today. On her 100th
birthday a. few weeks age, "Moth
er" Jones received a telegram of
felicitation from John D., Jr., and
In expressing- her appreciation for
the message, - she revealed that
once, several years ago he had in
vited her to his home for dinner.
"Tour loyalty to your ideals.
your fearless aaaerenee to your
duty as you have seen it is an in
spiration to all who have known
you," read the message from the
son of her old time enemy.
And after she 'had read It,
"Mother" Jones said, "He's a
darned good sport. Fve licked
him many times, but now we've
made peace."
His wire from "Mother" Jones
and the compliment paid him in
a radio speech last night by the
Prince of Wales, who said he
hoped England -would produce -a
philanthropist like him, were the
high spots of John D. Rockefel
