The warrants sworn out yestenday
by Justice G. P. N'issen, by which he
expected to enforce the closing of a
number of the concessions which go
with the Patterson shows, were not

were being used, and I threatened to
close them up. and received assurances
that they would be closed. I will now
leave the matter up to the city commis

closed I will see to it myself."
