Magistrate Schroeder put in a long
antl busy morning Mijie police court
today. Not only e did " Chief
Sexton have an tiuusually large
amount '. of business for him to act
upon, but the new law enacted by
the last legislature and ojierative
since July 1, entitles all defendants'
to the right of jury trial should they
so elect, and the court is required to
give each prisoner opportunity to
formally waive the same before pro
ceeding, anil so while only one of
those charged with wrong doing in
sisted on his rights in this respect,
and his hearing was deferred, it took
sonv. time to try the various cases
before the court.

ed a strange gambling den last night
about 11:3(1 o'clock. It was conduct
ed on First avenue between Eigh

what has ostensibly been run as a
barber shop, but this was merely a
guise, not too deep, however, to be
penetratet! by the eagle eye of the
chief, who got on to the true state of
affairs there some time ago, antl he
decided upon last night as a good
time for a haul. And it was. The
place was run by a tall negro named
Jack Dempsey and when the police
went down last night they found an
interesting mixtureof the African ai.d

usual appointments f a thoroughly
equipped gambling house were to be
found. Dempsey presided, while two
others of his color and two of the
subjects of the celestial kingdom
constituted the party. The police
took the entire outfit to the station
in the patrol wagon, ami they had an
interesting time searching the China
men, but finally succeeded, and this
morning they found their wits again
taxed when the prisoners came up
for trial. Magistrate Schroeder fin
