by the Omaha police of being the
nigiier-ups m a gang ot car
thieves, which for months operated
in and about this city, exasperating
automobile owners and rendering
the local police department ridicu
lous. . "
The men were convicted on the

would not be punished for their own

terms in the penitentiary, and Com

obtain pardons for the prisoners.
On the eve of their departure for
the State orison. McKenna and
Jones accused Chief Eberstein of
violating his agreement with them.

ar saying he could not carry out

"atraid of The Bee."
Contrary to law and in disregard
of all rules and custom. McKpnna

were bound over for the. 'district

ii- the custody of the sheriff.
The prisoners were not sent to the

Chief Eebersteiirto the extent that
he was allowed to go to and from

McKenna stole several automo

joying the liberty granted him by
the commissioner and chief of po

Held Illegally In Jail.
Jones also was' granted hereto
fore unheard of privileges while he
was held illegally a prisoner at the
city jail. According to, his own
statement on the witness stand
Jones was given large quantities of
morphine four and five times a day
at the Women's Detention home.
Jones was a confessed drug addict,
and his vice; was encouraged by
Chief Eberstein all 4he time he was
in the , city jail, the prisoner as

stealing automobiles on the streets
of Omaha. .McKenna said he re
ported the natter to Chief Eber

told to keep quiet about it. The po
lice chief went to Lincoln and at
