When all the facts connected with the operation of gambling Joints and houses of ill repute in Spokane are brought to the surface, conditions will be rever-led that will startle even the man accus tomed to the harder side of life. It was for the investigation of these conditions that a grand Jury was demanded from the superior court judges. It was for the suppression of such an invvestigation that powerful Influences were used to forestall it. , Such an investigation will reveal graft and police protection of evil that Is startling, and show a degeneracy on the part of the police department that was never equalled in the palmy days of wide ope n Spokane. The average citizen that looks with leniency on a poker game will rebel against the idea of hav ing first to see the police before starting a game. If poker is to be permitted, give all a fair shake. It ought not to be necessary to consult the police as to whether a woman can open a resort. If those institutions are to be permitted, give all applicants an equal show. The fact that one woman has $500 or another $5000 should not cut any figure with the pohct. Neither ought the police to say whether a resort shall charge $2 or $3, as has been decreed in some cases. When a police department is armed with such power as has been assumed in the regulation of evil under the regime of John T. Sullivan as chief of police, it is high time that the people inquire the occasion for all of this. In this particular the grand jury could have rendered a great service to the people.
