PLEAS OF GUILTY
ARE ENTERED IN
Two of the men arrested in the gam
bling raid Saturday night pleaded guilty
in municipal court this morning and
received fines of $40 each, the mini
mum under the law; one entered a plea
of not guilty, was tried and convicted
and was fined $40 and $6 costs; two
forfeited $10 cash bonds, while George
Conley, proprietor of the cigar store
raided, although he had announced that
he would plead guilty, was granted
until tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock
to plead as he stated he wished to
have an attorney present.
Under the ordinance which the
charges against the men were brought,
playing cards for cigars, drinks or any
thing of value is gambling and must
be stopped in Boise as the detectives
have orders t ostop gambling, and the
'hlnkey" games, as they are known,
where cards are played for cigars and
drinks, come under that head, accord
ing to section 1003 of the ordinances
of Boise City, which reads as follows:
"Sec. 1003—Every person who deals,
plays or carries on, opens or causes to
be opened, or who conducts, either os
owner, employe or lessee, whether for
hire or not. any game of faro, monte,
roulette, lansequenet, rougo et noir,
rondo, or any game played with cards,
dice o rally other device, for money,
checks, credit, or any other representa
tive of values, is guilty of a misde
meanor, and Is punishable by a fine not
less than $40 nor more than $200, or by
imprisonment in the city jail not ex
ceeding 60 days or by both such tine
Most of the men arrested pleaded
guilty to playing cards for drinks and
when the ordinance was read to them
announced that they did not know they
were gambling. Thus far the only fine
paid was that of J. Arkus, of Nampa,
who was released on a $10 bond to ap
pear this morning, which he did and
was fined $40. Dan Powers was the
only one pleading not guilty. He de
clared he did not know what consti
tuted gambling, that he was Ignorant
of the law and while he was In the
game he had not paid any money to get
In and did not think h ewns guilty.
William Kettan and Henry Klnslnger
forfeited tlielr bonds and It Is likely
that the $40 fine given J. McGinnis, an
old man, will be refunded.
The case was in the nature of a test
case to find out If the "hlnkey games,"
which always have been played here,
constitute gambling nnd now that the
matter has been determined, all such
games must stop or ether arrests will
