    Eduarda K. Baltuff sends a letter along with her special investigation into the charges against Washington State prohibition officer Roy C. Lyle. Baltuff writes that her former husband, John Baltuff, was involved in bringing liquor from Canada into Seattle during prohibition, and paid Roy C. Lyle to protect him from the police. She also writes that William Whitney, T.P. Revelle, Henry Blackwood, and Ed. M. Lakin are also guilty of conspiring to bring alcohol into Washington State, but that Lyle was mostly responsible for breaking the law. Moreover, Baltuff writes that Lyle did not even pass his civil service exam, so should not be in his officer position. Baltuff writes to Jones, "The people of Washington State wonder why you are so silent on the matter altho our newspapers have been full of the situation, and feels that you are not doing your full duty if you do not vote for a complete investigation of the matter.". less
