ed by his brothers and his mother,;
Mrs. Harriet Jones. From 1922 to
1926 he worked as club car stew
ard on the 20th Century Limited,
and in 1927 he entered the lottery
He first became a policy writer
or numbers salesman, then he op
erated a policy station, bossing
a number of policy writers and
cash runners, and finally in 1929
became the owner of his own wheel
To show how profitable the rac
ket is, the government disclosed
that the brothers spent, from 1931
through 1938, $2,721,911, while
their income tax returns showed
an income of only $1,358,270. The
difference, minus cash on hand,
Jan. 1, 1939, was what they were
charged with failing to declare as
Ed testified under oath that the
income from the three drawings a
day at his wheel leaped from $2,
000 each 24 hours in 1933 to $10,
000 each 24 hours in 1938.
Wlhere the brothers got their in
itial $15,000, the government did
not say, but added they had it in
1929. By Dec. 31, 1938, the net
worth of the brothers and their
mother was given as $1,600,000.
Their cash was kept in 25 separate
bank accounts, and grew from
$8,000 o $204,000 from 1931 thru
1938; their government securities
holdings rose from $116,000 to
$562,000; annuities, from nothing
to $123,000; industrial bonds, no
thing to $143,000; stocks, nothing
to $113,000; real estate, nothing to
$229,000; municipal bonds, nothing
The government’s “Exhibit A”,
a three and one half foot sheet
breaking down the Jones’ brothers
financial holdings, listed a number
of items that appeared to be poli
tical payoffs for protecton. Some
of these Items were frankly labt'l
el “pay-offs” and ranged from $8.
625 to $32,234 a year. Other “un

from $30 to more than $9,000 a
