Iheir business- '
Gallery replied that he had
only done his duty and that he in
tended to go on doing his duty.
Bassio again warned him that he
would "get" him "as soon as Cru
den got back." Cruden is chief
inspector for the bureau.
Bassio gave no explanation of
himself. He did not deny that the
employment agencies had violat
ed the law. He just announced
that he was going to "get" Gal
lery for stopping a fraud. -
Gallery is going right ahead, in
his campaign against the agen
cies He is assisted by Louis Wise
of 1418 West Twelfth street
Wise heard the stories' of Sam
Marcus, 1840 Yeaton av., and J.
Swartz, 1314 South Sangamon
st., who had been duped by the
Freeland agency, 102 South
Canal st.
He offered his services to Gal
lery. Gallery told him that if he
would swear out warrants charg
ing the two Freeland brothers
with obtaining money under false
pretenses it would help, as that
charge would bring the agents
under police jurisdiction
Wise has sworn out the war
rants' and these will be served on
the Freelands today.
The Freelands run one of the
biggest employment agencies in
the, city. They are wealthy.
The elevator of the J. J. Bade
noch Company, West 17th and
Rockwell streets, was-gutted by
fire early this morning. Loss will
reach $200,000.
Because of the low. water pres
sure in the district it was impos
sible to fight the fire effectively,
although 45 engines and 400 fire
men were called out.
A row of nine frame cottages
on West 17th, directly opposite
the elevator, caught fire. Occu
pants were driven into the street,
most of them in flimsy night gar
ments. J. J. Badenoch, head of the ele
vator company, was superintend
ent of police under Mayor Swift.
o o
Denver, Aug. 16. All mem
bers of the police department to
day turned in their clubs.
The order to do so came from
the fire and police board, which
recently decided that the chief
source of police brutality to inno
cent persons was the handiness of
the club.
The members of the depart
ment are also to be compelled to
submit to a physical test. All fat
men will be asked to resign. This
will leave Denver with a police
force of about six members.
That new pure milk ordinance
may be all right. All of us want
to save the lives of Chicago
babies. And if we get pure milk
and some milk trust doesn't gob
ble all the business and raise the
price of milk we'll all feel good
about it.
But if a milk trust grows out
of this humanitarian move and
prices go up so only the rich can
buy milk, then most of us will
wonder if the whole thing wasn't
a job from the start.
