' Drinking Dry’s Tip
Caused Fatal Raid
Aurora, III.—Eugene Boyd
Fairchild, undercover dry agent
whose tip resulted in the mur
der for a gallon raid on the
home of Mrs. Lillian De King,
was revealed as a false swearer
and habitual drunkard.
| Assistant Attorney General C. W.
| Hadley, who is investigating the
| circumstances of the fatal raid,
put Fairchild through a severe
grilling and elicited the admts.'.Aon
(hat the agent did not buy liquor
from Mrs. De King as he stated in
his affidavit for a search warrant.
The investigators also learned that
Fairchild's former wife, now living
in Geneva, obtained a divorce more
than n year ago because of his in
These developments, following so
closely upon the killing of Mrs. De
King and the beating of her hus
band by the raiders, have almost
caused a collapse of prohibition en
forcement in Kane county. The drys
are taking the repeated blows upon
their administration of the law
without offering a comeback.
The story of how the evidence
leading to the raid was obtained
was revealed by Hadley’s examina
tion of Fairchild.
"Did you make the liquor pur
chase as described in your affida
vit?” Hadley asked.
“Not personally,” Fairchild ad
mitted after trying vainly to avoid
the question, "but it was made all

thing to drink. They drove to Au
rora and tried several places there,
"I suggested we try De King."
Fairchild continued, ‘so I drove
there and stopped the car near the
oil station. 1 gave this fellow X was
with $5 to make the buy. I told him
to see If he could get a pint."
"A few minutes later my friend
came back and said: "We’re fixed
up." So we got back in the car and
drove away. When we were about
half a mile down the road my
friend gave me $3 change from my
$5 and produced the flask.
"I told him to take a drink first.
Then he handed the bottle to me. I
told him it was rotten stuff. Well,
we drank about half of it and I put
the rest in my pocket for evidence."
Further examination by Hadley
revealed that Fairchild’s supposed
friend, who proved to be Philip
Johnson, twenty-seven, son of a
gasoline station owner In Batavia,
told him a woman about fifty years
sold him the liquor. Mrs. De King
was thirty-five. Fairchild admitted
he, himself, did not see the seller
