MANILA, Oct. 15. Meeting
with adverse results In the courts
In (he prosecution of persons ar
rested on chargea of playing po
ker, the eonitabulary authorities
.... .u. .u.i .uriu.r rams
on these gamea would be useless
expenditure of time and money
until the question of whether po
ker Is a game of skill or chance
la decided by the Supreme Court.
The courts of first Inatance
have held that poker Is a game of
skill, while the attorney-general
has rendered an opinion that It
la a game of chance and as such
is punishable under the laws.
Brigadier-General Rafael Cra -
me, chief of the constabulary, cal-
ling the attention of the secretary
to the subject says:
"Since the attorney-general In
his opinion of several years ago
held that poker was a game of
chance and punishable, instruc
(ions were given the constabulary
lo apprehend and prosecute all
persons engaged In playing poker
and these Instructions are still
In voicue. However, since Judges
havt taken upon themselves to ac
quit persons engaged In poker
playing, there seems to be no fur
ther need of the constabulary
spending time and money In raid
ing these games. If the men
caught will be acquitted."
Steps have been taken te bring
a case before the Supreme Court
In order that a final decision on
the subject may be obtained. '
OXFORD, October 14. Ox
ford colleges are crumbling away,
but they have never done anything
else. Nearly all Oxford Is built of
a soft local stone which carves
easily Into rich and fanciful shapes
but begins to flake and rot away
after the first decade. After a cen
tury or so It is necessary to dress
down the whole outer surface of
the buildings and lay on an outer
surfacing of new slabs.
Some of the larger colleges are
never without builders' scaffolding.

for eighty years in mending the
