After two of Dwyers's men had en-1

found a poker gnnte in progress, war?

new Inspector went over the head of

cording to information obtained at po

That th. district attorney would uso

testimony before Justice G?rt was made
known to-day by a representative of
th.- district attorney. While it is ex?
pected that the excuse of the owners
will be that they wore not iiw.tr.- ,.r
the us, to which their property was
being put, the State expects to under?

which they charged for the proprle
Commissioner Waldo's statistics
show, it Is said, that rents charged me

This proposed prosecution of owners
of Illegal places is said to have been
suggested by Justice Goff, as in bis
boliof on.- of the most effective wea?
