CONSIDER THEIR POWERS DISCIPLINARY Teoanaa Dennlsnn, at Wltaeea, Refers la Proaecntloa as Perseeallon " . Instigated by J. H. Mc Donald for Spite. The first witness called -yesterday In the rase of the State of Nebraska against V. L. Chucovlch and others, who are charged with keeping and operating gam bling devices at 1313 Douglas street, was W. D. Mcllugh, a member of the Board of Fire and Police Commissioners. Mr. Mcllugh testified that he became a member of the board In June of the present year, and that he made a visit to the Dia mond saloon In the month of July. There he saw a big blackboard, a telegraph In strument, an operator and a man marking the odds In different horse races, presuma bly, throughout the country, upon the blackboard. A crowd of men wag a feature of his first visit. Mr. McHugh had previ ously been Informed that certain things were being done at the place dally, all of which seemed to point to It as a pool room. It was also stated by Mr. McHugh that he had previously talked with members of the Board of Fire and Police Commissioners and that It had been tacitly admitted be tween them that a pool room was being operated at 1313 Douglas street. - Testimony was also given by Mr. Mc Hugh that he was a member of the board In July, when an order was Issued to the (hlef of police, requiring the closing of cer aln saloons unless the persons holding the licenses for these saloons ceased permitting women and music In their places of busi ness. In this connection, however, Mr. Mc Hugh said that as he understood them, the duties of the commission were disciplinary rather than executory and that It had no power or authority to order the chief to arrest the proprietors of these places. Dunn's Point In Vain. In asking the questions which elicited these replies from Mr. McHugh, the effort was being made by Mr. Dunn to estab lish the fact that the board had Issued orders to the chief of police, thus con firming or establishing a precedent which has since been dented by the board as within thes cope of Its powers. Mr. McHugh then made the broad state ment that he had never construed the powers of the board to extend so far as to make a saloon keeper disobeying the orders of the board subject to arrest. The next witness was Thomas Dennlson who .said that he had been engaged ax gambling for a number of years In nearly all the western states and in the city of Omaha, of which he had been a resident for the frlod of eleven yeare. When asked relative to the place at 1313 Douglas street. the witness etated that he had never been In what was known as the pool room part of the place, during the day time, but had confined his visits during the day to the bar or the front portion of the place. mine, ne couta not tesiiry personally as to the business being conducted In the back part, he had understood that gambling was being carried on and that the place was opened up for such purposes In January or tnis year. Mr. Dennlson said he was not directly Interested In the matter, of the prosecution against the Diamond saloon, as he was -a disinterested party, insofar as being an owner of any part . of th.. building or peing a partner , in the ..business eon due Jed there. was concerned... .'In-thls con nection he said that, a more ant term In describing the proceeding against the place wouia do to can it a "persecution" instead or a prosecution. . . AttrJbntea Sinister Motive. In his Judgment the proceedings had been institutes against the place because Mr. Chucovlch had denied J. "H: McDonald a one-fifth Interest in the winnings, and that McDonald rather than Dunn was behind the matter. Mr. Dennlson said that his brother, Patrick, was not Interested In the . t"ui luniuii oi me Dusiness, being solely interested In the bar In the front of tne Duudlng. It was shortly after this that Dennlson volunteered the remark that uunn had been "persecuting" him, as he called It, for a period of six or eeven years. In the cross-examination W. J. Connell attempted to show through Mr. Dennlson's testimony that the fixtures at the Diamond saloon, Including the blackboard and the desk, were such as found 1 lp business offices; that the blackboard was an ordinary board, sold by school furnishing houses and used In the public sehools; that the desk was such as Is used In other down town business offices and the telegraph fixtures were such as are used In the board of trade and grain offices, and that for these reasons they did not constitute gambling devices. This put the question -as to what the legal phrase, "adapted, devised and de signed'' In connection with gambling de vices meant, up to the court and there upon Judge Estelle begun an informal ex planation, saying that no one who had ever visited any considerable portion of the western part of the United States could be Ignorant of what constituted gambling de vices, or as to what constituted gambling, although the court agreed that when It oame to a legal Interpretation of the ques tion as to ..what constituted gambling or as to what might be legitimately called gam bling devices, It then assumed a technical form. Depends I'pon Their t'se. As to whether the fixtures at the Dia mond could rightfully be called gam bling devices, the court said it was largely a matter as to what use they were put, but announced that this question would be passed upon finally at a later period In the present trial. The last witness during the forenoon session was W. J. Broatch) who said he had been a member of the Board of Fire and Police Commissioners since Augiia':, 1901. Through Mr. Broatch the attempt was made by Mr. Dunn to prove that pre vious to the purchase of the property at 1313 Douglas street and previous to the time Chucovlch opened up the place for gambling he had been vialted by Chuco vlch. who Informed Broatch of his Intended purchase land Intended business project and that an agreement of tacit understanding had been maae at mat time or soon there after by which Chucovlch had been given to know that be would not be molested In his new project by the Board of Fire and Police Commissioners. The name of Milton T. Barlow was also mentioned In connae. tlon with the sale of the property te Chu covlch In the attempt to show that Broatch and Barlow had got together and discussed the matter of "protection" to Chucovlch In the event the sale of the property at 1313 Douglas street was consummated. When the matter had reached this In teresting point Mr. Connell, as attorney for the defense, entered a strenuous ob jection and the court ruled that the wit ness need not give an answer. Mast y a la netalned. Acrimonious debate marked the argu ments before Judge Estelle of the criminal division of the district court yesterday aft ernoon upon the sufficiency of the return which had been made by Acting Chief of Police Mostyn In connection with the man damus recently Issued from Judge -81a-baugb'e court, requiring the Board of Fire and Police Commissioners, the mayor and the chief ef police to effect the arrest of A Stock Broker would de fine common soda crackers i (usually damp and 'soggy) as ij WATERED STOCK"! , A Sailor would define Unccda Biscuit (Always 1 dry and light) as a little "PLEASURE SMACK."

Answering the mandamus Captain Mos tyn demurred tp.-lta provisions on the ground that he wavmerely acting as chief of police during the absence of Chief Dona hue; that he had &n acting In that ca pacity for only four -days; that he did not know of his own personal .knowledge that gambling Is or was being carried on at the Diamond saloon, and that he should not, therefore. , be compelled to arrest persons against whom the allegations had been made In the original petition, but against whom no warrant, nor complaint looking to ;helr arrest had been made by the par ties to the suit , Judge Estelle held .that the return was sufficient and that a writ of mandamus would not, therefore, b-come mandatory against Mr. Mostyn. . . Petition Defective. City Attorney Wright said that If I. J. Dunn, one of the complainants, had asked in his petition that officers of the law be sent to the Diamond saloon to make an Investigation, his .suit might have some weight, but that to send an officer to that place to make an arrest when the officers were not armed wltlf a complaint or war rant, and 'did not themselves have any personal knowledge that crime had been committed, caused the petition of Mr. Dunn to lose any weight-It might other wise have. In closing the arguments Lysle I. Ab bott, for the complainants, contended that If the prosecution had not the right to ask for a writ of. mandamus, then no crime, of whatsoever nature, can, or should be, prosecuted. If Acting Chief Mostyn was not In his present position for the pupose of obeying the laws, then he was drawing bis monthly salary under falsa pretenses. Ii ' ' ' ' - . ' v .

A. Cudahy, has been exploded. To allay my own and the faara of oth ers, that possibly Costello might be telling a straight story," said Captain Mostyn, "I sent Detective Donahue, who Is familiar with every detail of the Cudahy case, to St. Joseph to see this man. He found him to be an old recluse who has given us no end of trouble in the past and who, at the time Pat Callahan was held at the county jail waiting trial before the district judge on the charge of being Implicated In the abduction of the boy, was doing thirty days for vagrancy In the same jail. All Costello knows about the case was picked up there from Callahan. He la an Irresponsible fel low and I am at a loss to know why the St. Joseph police ever placed credence in bis story."
