April 2, Frank Nitti had a difficult job. While Capone had inherited a smoothly functioning gang from Torrio at the height of the best period the American underworld has ever known, Nitti took over in a declining market when there was noticeable internal strife and external pressure.
Third, after the gang wars were over, there was an excess supply of "soldiers", many of whom on the one hand were not good at anything else and on the other hand were not likely to quietly "fade away.
The first order of business was to increase the size of the pie. While this expansion started while Capone was still in charge, it accelerated under Nitti as Prohibition ended.
The movement into new rackets was certainly made easier by the lack of any real opposition. After winning the gang wars, Nitti in about consolidated what was left into one organization with total control of organized crime in Chicago and the surrounding areas.
The Outfit as we know it was born at this point. Jake Guzik and Murray Humphries led the expansion into labor racketeering and gambling.
Much of Mob run gambling at the time consisted of betting on horse races, with the bets taken at bookie joints or by roving handbook operators.
Beyond horse racing, there were casino games running at various places in county, such as the Owl Club in Calumet City or in Cicero, and the ubiquitous slot machines, under the blind eyes of various Sheriffs of Cook County of both political persuasions.
Outfit control of gambling was accomplished partly by muscling in on the existing gamblers in the area and partly by expanding what the Capone Mob was already involved in.
Nitti received considerable help from men who had gotten their training under Capone. Second, Nitti learned the lesson of Al Capone and kept the Outfit out of the spotlight.
After the string of income tax evasion convictions, the federal authorities moved on to other things, including chasing bank robbers, kidnappers, Communists and World War II spies and saboteurs.
This included the FBI, which for years found greener pastures in the preceding then in organized crime.
In fact, the Outfit did such a good job of laying low that federal agents, including Eliot Ness, declared the Capone gang finished in and the Bureau, embracing this view, believed that organized crime in Chicago was inactive until the mids.
Only the Chicago Crime Commission, led by its Operating Director, Virgil Peterson, effectively contested the Outfit from the early s until the late s.
Third, during the early to mids there were a number of major gangland killings, as the last battles were fought, operations were consolidated into the Outfit meaning gangsters who refused to give up ownership of their rackets while keeping a percentage of the action were eliminated and those who could not function in peace time became expendable.
Jack McGurn fell in the latter category. Nearly broke and uncomfortable with the new arrangements, he was killed in February This attrition decreased the number of mouths to be fed by the gangland pie.
After Prohibition ended in , the Outfit gained influence in or over other cities, such as Milwaukee and Madison, Wisconsin, Rockford and Springfield, Illinois, Kansas City and established a foothold in Los Angeles.
High interest "juice" loans to unlucky players or those short of funds went hand in hand with gambling. Non-gambling related juice loans, to legitimate businessmen who had trouble borrowing from banks but were vouched for by someone in the Outfit, opened the door to extortion by the Mob.
During the World War II years the Chicago Mob, of course, found it profitable to counterfeit ration coupons for gasoline and other commodities.
And states with local Prohibition ordinances provided opportunities for small scale bootlegging. But their most audacious move involved extorting money from the major Hollywood film studios.
With control of the Chicago local of the projectionists union and, through George Browne and Willie Bioff, the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, the leaders of the Outfit extorted money from the major Hollywood film studios starting in the mids.
The studios paid because otherwise the unions would go on strike and close the theaters down. This arrangement worked well enough until Browne and Bioff were indicted and became government witnesses against Nitti, Ricca, Campagna and the other top Chicago mobsters who directed them.

Contract killers under the employ of the North Side Gang, brothers "Goosey" and Frank left bullet holes all over the city.
Wearing brown overalls, Peter casually emptied an entire round chamber of Tommy gun ammo into the Hawthorne Hotel, Capone's Cicero hub. The younger Frank was the only survivor of the St.
Valentine's Day Massacre, despite being riddled with 14 bullets. In the hospital, cops asked who shot him. Legend has it that a hole in the cornerstone of the church is one of the bullet holes.
It's probably not true, but the cornerstone was shot up pretty badly that day. Under his oversight, the mob moved from narcotics and prostituion to grander schemes like labor racketeering and extorting movie studios in Hollywood.
