Zolfa Kortovich is under arrest at the South Chicago police station charged with the murder of Charles Lindley at I o’clock this morning, during the progress of what the police characterize as a drunken brawl in South Chicago’s red light district, and Sam Gostovic and Rysto Rabisch are held as accessories. iiuarrel With Hungarians. Lindley, who is the son of a former foreman of the blacksmith department of the Illinois Steel company, was walking south in the Strand at I o’clock tills morning In company with his brother William, when they encountered a party of four Hungarians. There was a clash and angry words followed, when one of the men, alleged to be K ortovlch, drew a 38-caliber revolver and fired four shots at the Lindleys. One shot took effect under tho left arm of Charles Lindley, and the four men lied. Hies In a Few Minutes. Lindley walked supported by his brother a distance of two or three hundred feet when he fell. He was removed in tho police ambulance, In charge of Officer Leiendecker, to the office of Dr. Perry, 9215 Commercial avenue, where he was attended by Drs. Perry and Lenard. He died within a few minutes after being placed on the operating table and his body was taken to Griesel & Son’s undertaking rooms, 894 6 Commercial avenue, where it awaits a post-mortem examination. Immediately after the shooting Officer James Goggiu was attracted to the spot, and a general alarm brought half a dozen more policemen. Kortovich was arrested in company with Gostovic and Rabisch. The fourth man escaped. Kortovich was Identified by Budy Brennan, bartender for George Otto, 9024 Strand, as n man whom he saw immediately after the shooting in the act of throwing a revolver in the street. Outside of the actual participants in the affair Brennan comes the nearest to being an eye witness of the crime, and his testimony is likely to be the most Important when Kortovich comes to trial. Felloe Probe Case. The three men under arrest were closely quest toned today by officials at the South Chicago police station. All three made denials of knowledge of the crime, but the positive indentiflca-fion of the barkeeper and the statement of other witnesses that Rabisch and Gortovich were In the company of Kortovich f.nd another man shortly before the crime was committed will unquestionably be instrumental in detaining all three as principal and accessories. The police are working actively on the case and hope to land positive evidence connecting Kortovich with the actual shooting. The theory of the police is that the Lindleys aroused the resentment of the four Hungarians as they were passing along the street and that the shooting was an act of reprisal for some act of the two brothers, anil arose out of the immediate circumstances. No credence is given the story that there w'as a quarrel beween Charles Lindley and Kortovich over a woman, as was suggested at the time news of the crime became public. Young Lindley was regarded as a young man of steady habits and his family is one of the best in South Chicago. He resided at $956 Exchange avenue. New Building on the East Side.
