sufficient evidence When met. by Mc
Duffle's explanation thereof to make
me .'. certain that . the commission,
a full hearing, would sanction a
discharge or a reduction in rank of
McDuffle. - The ' explanations made by
the captain , of : detectives were not
wholly . satisfactory,; for' the jfact re
mained that during McDuSe's admin
istration these : large gambling games
did run. And some ; games . would
start up .again Immediately after be
ing raided by McDuffle. , ; ;
,As soon as Deputy Sheriff Rose
took charge and "started to close up
these games,-the remarkable thing
about' It all was that: those games
.which were impossible to raid,- such
as the Ah Hoo game, closed down and
have remained closed ever since.
"There was not-a bit of direct evi
dence which would Justify .anything
in the way of a criminal . charge
against : McDuffle. " The - whole thing
resolved . Itself down: lhto a ' question
of competency. I was'perhaps influ
enced in my position; by the fact that
McDuffle - will now have to - see that
these games : frotn which - he Is al
leged to have received money, remain
closed, or explain. .why they are nqi
closed. Mt has been shown that the
larger - games can" be stopped in; Ho
nolulu and ' that a wholesome fear of
the-detective department has a good
deal to do with the question of wheth
er the games shall run or not. . Mc
Duffle .will have a chance to keep up
the: record set by Mr.' Rose or explain
why he does not.'
