Wilson Matoff of 140 Broadway who works at the Broadway A&P Store states that while coming down Broadway, near the school, that a man in an intoxicated condition stepped in front of his car and he just hit him enough to knock him down.

Mrs. Lillian Irvine, 47 Bloomingdale Ave., occupation nurse, came to the police station looking for a package of morphine taken from Nelson Hewitt Cottage at 38 Lake Flower Ave. Same was turned over to Mrs. D. Cone, Mrs. Irvine claims. Officer Jones got same from Mrs. Cone. Mrs. Irvine came to the police station notifying Officer Jones of the above and would like to get the package as she had a prescription from Dr. Rae Strong to purchase same. Interviewed Officer Jones with reference to complaint from Mrs. Irvine that he refused to give her the bottle of 60 grain narcotic. He said he would have an investigator take charge of the case. It was 21 hours later after I talked with him that the above took place. I went to his house on Woodruff Street and called twice but was unable to get in touch with Officer Jones. When I saw him the next day he refused to give up the bottle of narcotic. This is a good case of insubordination on Officer Jones. - Chief
