was stated that the Swedish eople were
to hold a meeting Friday evening at the
8wedlsh auditorium censoring the action
taken by the police In the case.
"We have no fault to find whatsoever
with the work of Chief Msloney and his
men In this affair, and are sure that the
chief and hla subordinates' are availing
themselves of every chance to bring the
murderer to Justice."
"The meeting Friday night will be held
for the purpose of organising the Swedish
people to co-operate with the police,
either flnsnclally or otherwise, In an
effort to apprehend tha individual who
perpetrated this foul deed. We want rep
resentatives of the police department so
that we may all form a plan of working
