The front page has a banner headline: "Illinois Capital in Hands of Mob" with subheads and related photo. (see) Surprisingly this issue is in good condition being from the "wood pulp" era. Very hard to find issues that are not totally fragile from this era in paper.
Complete with 8 pages, two small library stamps within the masthead, some small binding holes, generally nice.
