  Excerpts from the Trial Transcript: Oscar Gutter (bookie)

Direct examaination by Albert Fink:

Fink: Where do you live?
Gutter: The Sherman Hotel.

Fink: What is your business?
I'm in the commission business, a broker. I handle sporting events, mostly horses.  
Fink: During 1927 did you have any transactions with the defendant, Alphonse Capone?
Gutter: Yes, I laid off bets for him during the Chicago racing season.  
Fink: Did he lose sometimes?
Gutter: Most of the time.  
Fink: Can you state approximately how much he lost?
Gutter: About $60,000.
Cross-examination by Dwight Green:
Green: How did you remember that he lost $60,000?
My ledger showed that at the end of the season.  
Green: I thought you didn't keep any books?
Gutter: Well, I kept them from month to month so I could pay my income tax.  
Green: Why didn't you keep them permanently?
Well, it was an illegitimate business.  
Green: Did you pay the defendant in checks or currency when he won?
I always paid him in currency, because he requested that. I caned at the Metropole Hotel and paid him if he won or collected if he lost.
