flashed today across the trail of Jake Lingles trail already tracked with the prints of gamblers gangsters and graft The dog tracks backed by the A Capone bankroll were suggested by investigators as affording a possible motive for the murder of the Trib une police reporter June 9 To Keep Track Open Capone presumed to have been friendly toward Lingle has long been understood to have a heavy in vestment in dog tracks in the Chi cago area The theory now under consideration is that Lingles job was to see that the dogs kept run ning without interference of the law The courts however subsequent ly decided dog racing is against Il linois law With the tracks closed Lingles value to the Capone in terests ended Gangland often has demonstrated Its readiness to kill a man when he no longer is able to deliver the fix Thus the authorities today had two possible motives for the Lingte murder one tracing to the Capone mob the other to the AielloMor an gang Capone foes Extortion Theory The latter group according to the theory sought Lingles life because of the reporters reputed attempts to obtain large sums from iloiati backed gambling houses under threat of sending the police against them if the money were not paid By killing Lingle said the investi gators the north side gang hoped also to injure Lingles close friend the then police commissioner Wil liam Russell It was for this reason the authorities suggested that the killers picked the Illinois Central subway at Michigan avenue and Randolph street as the place of as sassination Such a spectacular slay ing they reasoned would lead to a public indignation that would force Russells resignation from commissionership WHERE TWO MET DEATH 2 North Iowas Celebrations Are Planned STAY UP UNHL 4 A M SUNDAY HELD AS SUSPECT Programs Arranged
