Fire Chief Tells Startling Story of the Crookedness Which Prevails Sarnia and Port Huron, Mich., each Chicago, Jan. 16.-With'the indictment of Joseph Clark, for an alleged attempt to bribe an assistant states attorney not, to prosecute an arson case, as a test, A. A. Batch, chief deputy lire marshal! told a remark-' able story of organized incendiarism. Ten per cent, of Chicago's iircs are incendiaries, Batch said. "Then' are three men in Chicago, known as insurance adjusters who- often get to fires before the firemen. They sleep with their clothes on. have autonrohiles in readiness and, receiving tips that a fire is about to be started are on their way almost before an alarm comes in. "Tho adjusters do not actually start fires themselves ; thoy employ men to do that-men who actually solicit the business. "The adjusters make their money by adjusting the losses. They offer bribes to detectives frequently, but never when there is a witness present, thus leaving it one man's word against another. �"Often, we arc informed days in advance of when fires arc to be start-fid. In that way wc are able to prevent many blazes, in many instances we have had detectives watching buildings that have been marked for the torch. Wo have had tips that have led us to buildings with the basement filled with excelsior, the floor saturated with oil and the stock packed in combustible material. All that we could do was to notify the insurance companies and have the insurance cancelled. In such cases the fires were not started. It is possible for anyone to get a building fired in Chicago. Charges vary, according to the magnitude of the fire. For large fires the charge is one per cent. I do not know of a single conviction for arson in Chicago in the last eighteen months."
