I Chief of Police.
, WRITES TO THE MAYOR
Ad'ds'That Selling of Opium
Is Largety Thing of
I' ' Gambling and smoking of opium ar
practices of the past in Sail Lake's
Chinatown, according to a letter received
by Mayor Park from Chlof of Police 13.
; F. Grant yesterday. . f.
Recently a delegation of prominent
f Celestial residents of Plum alley waited
upon Mio olty commission with a petition
that gambling arid, opium smoking ho
stopped In Salt Lake. The delegation
furnished the commission Information as
.' to where the unlawful practices were bo
HHt i . Major Park turned tho letter over "to
Hn ; tho police chief, with instruction to In
HB j vrstlgatc. In replying, the chief declares
$ r that naught but dust and ruin marks tho
f ' former temples of chance and the shrine
(of the poopy drug has vanished.
Tho letter of Chief Grant follows:
I havo tho. honor to report In con-
ncctlon with your communication of
Dcccmhcr 3, relative to tho sale of
opium and of gambling among tho
Chinese and Japanese of this city as
In the month of January. 1912. I
had notlco nerved upon all tho Chi
nese and Japanese gambling and
dplum dens that the: must clone by
the 1st of February or wc would pro-
cced to clone them by law.
mam i On Saturday. February. 3. .102. I .
mm : detailed ofllccrs to see whether' or
fl not tho order was being complied
H with and I found gambling going on
n , In Plum alley and the first arrest
am j, was then made. AVo followed this
HH matter up continuously, making ar-
' i : rests for gambling and selling
H opium. and. as you will rc
) member. this fight was so
Hfl vlgorfja that the Chinese ap-
I pealed to leading attorneys to rep
t resent .them, claiming they wero bc
B J1-.. mg persecuted, not prosecuted. Sev
I oral of these attorneys wrote let
Hfl I torn to your honor complaining about
Hf our disturbing these people, but we
continued to arrest violators of the
1 , 'flierc has been paid "In flues arid
forfeitures between S2000 r,nd 32500
by these people since the first of the
I year. I believe that I can positively
H stato that practically all of these
HK houses have discontinued gambling
n or handling opium. There are some
games which arc played wlln doml
noes which r understand are gamb
ling games, but so far we have been
HI unable- to secure the nccessarv evl-
M dencc to obtain a conviction In
H tneso cases, but will endeavor to do
M so at an early a date as possible.
B Anyone wishing to examine these
I houses hr Plum alley, formcrlv used
I for gambling, will now find dust and
mm ,. oin au over.tnc tables and gambling
M ".qulpmeiit. It is also worthy of nolo
H that-mora of the Chinese petitioning
HH 7 ,t0 oavc thin practice discontinued
H havo been arrested alone with tho'
H rest from time to time for violation
M of the law. Your obedient servant.
