ALLEGED SAFEBLOWER ESCAPES
Former Superintendent of
School Charged with Irregularities
Peoria, Ill.—Ed. Tate, an alleged safe blower, who was held in this city on the charge of opening the school board safe and destroying the N. C. Daugherty script, escaped from the St. Francis hospital. He had been in the hospital for several days suffering from blood poisoning.
Daugherty, a former superintendent of the Peoria schools, is in prison at Joliet for financial irregularities. The script supposed to have been destroyed by Tate contained, it is said, further evidence of Daugherty’s guilt.
