i town. Commissioner Hart and Sheriff
Iruner went together to the manage
ment and laid down the law as re
gards the Fhows and games that
would be permitted. Promises of the
' best behavior were made.
Last night Commissioner Hart had
his force busy conducting several
raids in the redlight district, leaving
the sheriff In charge at the show
grounds. Hruner was there personal
ly. Atwood and his wife run a for
tune wheel at which paddles with,
; numbers on are sold. The law does
r.or permit cash prizes so various more
r less useful and valuable articles
are played for. The spirit of the law
:s evaded, however, by the buying
' back of prizes.

Pruner watched the game closely
for a while and decided that the
, wheel was 'gigged." in other worjis
' fixed so that the woman could stop it"
at a given number. When convinced
. of this fact. Bniner advanced and tore
! away a Ftrlp of bunting which con
cerned the lover which worked the de
v ice and ordered the game stopped.
Atwood became abusive and direct
ed some very bad language at city
ar.d county officials. This resulted in
his arrest. He was taken to the sta
