"About the middle of March, 191H,
Mrs. Myrtle Allison applied for atten

succeeded in reaching Dr. Meredith
by telephone. I told him that the wo

About two- weeks later I met Dr.
Meredith . again. When I told him
what a dangerous game It was he ws
playing he said that he never was

him these threats.
Once when Father Cashin was

other gunmen talking in Jewish. The
priest understood the language and
heard Gyp say: "Frank Is going tc
pieces; he's telling on the rest of us.'
Warden Clancy, knowing that Clro
flcl was terrorized, brought him from
the cell to the office of the keepei
where he made his confession.
