The LaNasa Brothers In New Orleans Are
Severely Punished for Its Violatles.
New Orleans, June 30.-The sever
est punishment that has been dealt
to violators of that provision of the
' Gay-Shattuck law which prohibits
) the sale of intoxicants to minor fe
males was imposed on Samuel and
Antonio La Nasa, the proprietors of
a saloon and "rooming" house, 1142
Decatur Street, who were found
' guilty last Friday. The prisoners
were ordered each to pay a fine of
) $225 or serve ninety days in jail.
The court also ordered the license re
voked, which practically puts the
men out of business until the Su
preme Court decides the case. The
) court also imposed a fine of $50 or
> thirty days on Frank Baroni, a
waiter employed by the La Nasa
brothers, who served the drinks to
the girls. A new trial was granted
to Gaetano Villimirisco, the Fillipino
cook, who served drinks with meals.
The charge against the La Nasa
brothers elicited a great deal of in
terest among saloon men, and also
those who are interested in the en
forcement of the law. It was proven
at the trial that three girls-Allce
Tjo, Ellen Dubrat and Gertie Hidden,
each under 17 years of age-were
allowed to enter the saloon and drink
at will, and that drinks were served
to them in the rooms. It was also
brought out that the girls were
drunk in the place, and caroused
there for three days.
The accused made a strong fight.
They employed Messrs. Henriques and
Dunn to defend them. The defense
sought to have the affidavits against
the accused dismissed on the ground
that the girls were over the age of
17. Bills of exception to the num
ber of sixteen were reserved, When
the record goes up to the Supreme
Court it will number more than 1,000
pages. The defense also sought to
have the affidavits dismissed because
it failed to specify whether or not
the defendants operated the saloon
as a corporation, partnership or oth
erwise, and also on the grould that
Antonio La Nasa was absent from
the city at the time the offense was
The question of whether or not a
saloon man has the right to serve
drinks to minors with meals also
arose, but the court held that the
drinks were not served with meals,
p and the defense will have the Su
preme Court decide the question. If
the higher court decides against the
defendants, it will mean the abolition
of restaurant signs and back rooms
where sandwiches are nailed to the
tables, and drinks sold under the pre
I tense of being sold with meals.
The revoking of the license of the
La Nasa brothers is the first action
of the kind that has taken place in
the Juvenile Court and according to
Judge Wilson it will not be the last.
The judgment against Frank, Baroni,
who was merely an employe of the
La Nasas, was also the first instance
where a waiter was held responsible
for what his employers paid him to
The cook, Villimirisco, was granted
a new trial because it was not proven
conclusively that he served drinks.
He admitted serving the meals, and
the girls declared that drinks were
served to them, but they were not
positive that the cook did it.

New Orleans, June 29,-Convicted
of selling a bottle of whiskey to the
Mayor of Abbeville, Vermillion parish,
without requiring a physician's pre
scription, Paul Bailey, a druggist, ie
seeking a pardon from the State
Board of Pardons, and the case ic
one of the hardest fought to come
before the the Board although the
offense, apparently, is not heinous,
Bailey was fined $500 and ninety
days in jail with six months addition
al imprisonment if he did not pay the
fine. A decision of the Supreme
Court in the case was handed dow,
one week ago yesterday, and Bailey
still is loose under fifteen day's delay.
The history of the case is peculiar,
and seems to show decided feeling
in Abbeville for and against the man,
It is related that the Mayor, with one
of his friends, appeared at the drug
store one day seeking to buy a bottle
of whiskey, as the two were going
on a fishing trip. Asked for a phy
sician's perscription, the Mayor re
plied that he had none, being in a
hurry to get away. He was sold the
whiskey, it is alleged. It is claimed
by Bailey's friends that his competitor
complained of him. Bailey was in
dicted, and the severe sentence was
The pardon is 'sought on the
grounds that the sentence :is incom
mensurate with the crime, and on the
grounds that animus in the matter
is evident. Representatives of both
sides appeared before the Board yes
terday, and the Board took the mat
ter under advisement, It sought to
have the jail sentence abolished in
