HAS CALLED A HALT ON LAW BREAKING — HEALTH RESORTS OF WEST BADEN AND FRENCH LICK TO LOSE THEIR GAMING ADJUNCTS—HUN DREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS DISSIPATED EVERY TWELVEMONTH. The two gambling casinos repre sent an expense of fully $156,000 per year on the basis of $500 per week day, rent, salaries of two faro dealers, six roulette dealers, two klondike deal ers, two other game keepers, two clot machine keepers, 10 poolroom employes, two k?no operators, mis cellaneous help, incidental expense, wire service and policing. As gambling from the professional's fide jf the table is richly profit able, it may be that close to $500,- --000 annually is wasted in these places. Special correspondence of The Tress. FRENCH LICK SPRINGS, Ind., Dec. s.—Until Dec. 10 the spas of Orange county, hidlana, will re main wide open, then —RING! — down will go the lid to remain closed, closed tightly during Gov ernor Hanly's administration at least. For it is the new governor •or Indiana who is forcing what seemed impossible, the promise to BUS pend gambling at French Lick and West Baden. All over the state the lid is being slammed down as a direct result of his ac tivity. WHAT NATURE FITTED FOR ANOTHER LOURDES, MEN HAVE CONVERTED INTO A SEC OND MONTE CARLO. For over a century the healing properties of the springs here and at West Ba den havo been known, and today are responsible for the presence of magnificent hotels erected in tho backwoods at the cost of millions of dollars and visited annually by thousands of peoplo to quaff the waters. Howe\ f» , bowling, horse back riding, golf, hunting, fishing, dancing, walking, tennis, driving, bathing, hill climbing, swimming, trap shooting, billiards, baseball, concerts, dramatic performances, cave explorations, and a score of other amusements seem to have Local Bowling, Foot-ball, Pool and Box ing Kid Parker of Denver nnd Har ney Mullin of Spokane signed ar ticles yesterday for a 20 round light for Dec. 15. The contest will occur in Washington hall. The articles read that both men nre lo weigh in at 3 p. m. the day of the fight at 1 513opunda. That both contestants shall place as for feit money the sum of $200 and that the club shall place tho same amount in the hands of U. D. Woods. In case that the required weight Is not made by one of the men the other ls to receive $100 of the forfeit money and the club $100. In case tho club shall not pull off the light, tho club forfeits $200, which shall bo divided be tween the two men. Parker Is guaranteed $200 for the winner's end. \J ® ® ® The Twentieth Century club Is preparing for their amateur go for Thursday night, and has arranged lo give the public eight fast bouts. The boys who will box are Dave Cullvtagton vs. Tod Beishaw, Fred Simpson vs. Chas. Lundsberry, C. Cullahan vs. Blllle Christenson, C. Elgin vs. George Smuck, J. Jess more vs. Tom Sutton, Otto Farrel TS. Pete Callahan, Joe Marford vs. J. Dyson, and Young Sealer vs. Bob flrackter. The first entertainment held by tho club, on last Thursday night, pleased the crowd who attended. The boys fought hard for decisions. Warren Belt, ono of the best players on the S. A. A. C. basket ball team, was unanimously elected captain of his team last night. In the game Saturday with the W. S. C. at Pullman, Belt will for the first time command the team. He is a good player and the best bas ket thrower In the club. He cer tainly has earned the honor be atowed on blm. "8" will bo glvon to 15 of the proved inadequate as attractions, and so faro, roulette, keno and bet ting on horse races for years have been among tho diversions offered. The Club Houses. Huge gambling casinos are ad juncts to the large hotels. The hotel people claim they are con ducted by outside parties who rent the premises. One is on the grounds of the French Lick Springs hotel, of which Thos. Taggart is presi dent. He is the Indianapolis Tom Taggart who was chairman of the democratic committee in the last presidential campaign. The other casino is on the grounds of the West Baden Springs Hotel com pany, L. W. Sinclair, president. At West Baden there ls also a town with a number of little hotels, but none of them seems to support the luxury of a casino. Path to Dalliance. ANYONE SEEKING THE CASI NOS NEED NOT GO ASTRAY. From the West Baden hotel's south entrance a covered gallery, broad, high and ample, runs straight to the second floor of the casino, and all one has to do is to walk through a glass dcor to where there's some thing doing. The French Lick ho tel also shows evidence of marked thoughtfulncss. It has no gallery extending from the hotel to the gambling emporium, but there is a long runway, like one of those to a second story sheep pen in a stock yard, only it is built of dress ed lumber, painted handsomely and decorated with electric lights at night. From a rise of ground at a largo exit from the hotel lobby it leads the lambs right to the second or "business" floor of the casino, the first floor being devoted to such innocent pastimes as bowling and billiards — except that there are nickel slot machines ranged so thickly in the lobby that they seem to crowd each other.

CASINOS by the people who come to drink the Pluto water at French Lick or the Sprudel water at West Badea. The present is the dull season, when most of those at the hotels are here not on vacations but on bona fide quests for health, and consequently the casinos are somewhat neglected. However, the Cheerful, brilliantly lighted hotel lobblea are deserted of an evening by groups that wend their way to the convenient, annexes where $2 and up will buy a stack of chips.

INDEED, THE HUM AND CLATTER OF THE ROU LETTE WHEEL IS OFTEN IN TERRUPTED BY THE SWEET ADMONITION OF TH CHIMES IN A NEARBY STEEPLE —at least a happier warning than the solemn stroke of tho hour in Poe's ghastly tale "The Masque of the Red Death."

How he escaped be ing killed by the New York news papers is one of the wonders of the football season.
