Siul machines in Fairmont will soon

Shorilt Glover and Ills deputies will
put the orders to "clean up" In effect
and there promises to be a lot of machines
brought down to the court house
unless the owners of them desist is . .jk
their use.
It has been known for some months
that the Blot machine business In this
city has been allowed to run along
rather loosely and was usually played
011 a straight basis not even awarding , jfl
the usual piece of chewing gum.
Some time ago .he court ruled that
slot machines were permissible It a *J
piece of chewing gum was awarded ?J

place. The slot machine owner*
obeyed the mandate for a time, but
later the game got back Into the old
rut and up to the present time was very
It is understood that Prosecuting Attorney
Haggerty has been dissatisfied
with conditions for considerable time
and had planned to make a "clean up."

or any body of the citizenry In particuThe
slot machine project in Fairmont
is wide spread and fullv a hun- J
dred machines are in operation In soft
drinking places, restaurants, pool
rooms, barber shops and other places. !
The procsecuting attorney's office I
announced this afternoon that the
wholesale raid on slot machines would j-1
not be conllned to Fairmont, but that
all of Marion county -would be rid of .?$J|
them. It is pointed out that they
have a bad moral effect upon Young la
America, especially in the county
districts, where nearly every store
has a "punch board." These and all ;1
other gambling devices come under
the ban.
The slot owners may endeavor to
retain themon the ground that on
some machines it states what the
next nickel will bring the chance taker.
The prosecuting attorney Is prepared
to prove that all of these are
illegel and must be dlsmanteld.
