Page 31 has one column headings that include: "CHICAGO GANGSTERS SEIZED IN NEW WAR" "Two Killers Wait in Courtroom for "Scarface" Capone, but He Fails to Appear" and more. (see) Reports mentioning Capone this early are very rare, more than a year prior to the St. Valentine's Day massacre. Nice reporting near the beginning of the Chicago gangster wars.
