Effective means of ridding the com

tables that had participated In the

the city for upwards of a year untjl a

The tables were broken up and cut
to pieces. Sheriff Edward Kittilsen
aided in the work of destruction by
swinging an axe. He selected two
husky prisoners to help, and then set
to work with- the axe and several
screw drivers. The tables were first
taken to pieces and then cut into kin
dling wood. The remains of the once
fancy tables lies in the Jail yard, noth

were used as the bases for the tables
were not included in. the general de

All the essential parts of the tables

seizure, were delivered at the county
jail, where they were held subject to
directions of Judge Olmstead. Sheriff
Edward Kittilsen, at the hearing on
the search warrant in the county
court, under oath, testified that the
tables were used for gaming purposes,

Island, it will interest itself in the
coming proceedings in the court of
Justice George P. Nissen, before whom
the writs of replevin for gambling fix
tures secured by the Schaum brothers
and McBrlde are set for hearing.
These fixtures were taken from the
Park, Diamond and Turf joints, and
are tnow, or have been, In storage in
Davenport. The Schaums and Mc
Bride have given bonds to defend their
writs. Sheriff Kittilsen yesterday iden
tified the three legless tables taken
from -the Robb storehouse, and he
might give the benefit of his knowl
edge to Justice Nissen when the hear

Justice Nissen claims he did not know
that the Schaums and McBride were
recovering gambling fixtures when

his office. If Justice Nissen does not

Kittilsen doubtless will lend him the
