The sum in dispute was th amount
of a check given by Nixon for th re

stopped payment, and made allegations
that the detective agency had connived
at th escape of the criminal. City
Detective Carpenter, who was at work
on the case, joined In thla accusation,
and in turn the Burns people charged
that he had taken money from a woman
of the underworld. Carpenter later was
suspended on other grounds, and re
signed from the force.

of the affair, telegraphed that he was

Richer by $2000 are the city coffers

In the prevailing- "moral wave," and
several precincts are yet to be heard
from. Announcement of deferred de
cisions was mads by Judge Tazwell
yesterday In the cases of nine women
charged with keeping- disorderly places,
and of 72 Inmates.
All of the keepers were assessed f 100
and the other women 50 and a few
cases decided at times hitherto the
sum netted to the city - Is above the
1100 mark. A few cases remain to be
decided, but as they rest upon the samel
evidence. It is probable that they will
take the same course.
Never tn the history of the city has
this class of cases been harder fought,
or won by the city on more dubious
evidence. In none of the cases was
there an overt act, and the tromen
stand convicted principally upon their
personal habits and the common fame
of the house, they occupy. It Is ex-
ned their ft ""

You can get a complete HTOMEI

Howe Owaers to Be Targ-et.
Finding of guilty In these cases opens
the way for proceedings - against the
owners and lessees of the property, and
according- to statements previously
made by Deputy District Attorney Col
lier, complaints will be filed against
the owners of record of property where
the women stay who stand convicted.
Satisfaction with the result Is ex
pressed by the police officers concerned,
and if untrammeled. they will further
the campaign by making additional ar
rests. It has been made clear, how
ever, that the attack will be confined
largely to the places where the women
are the most numerous and most flag
rant in their actions.
Next in line comes the trial of cases
growing out of the second raid upon
the Chinese gambling house at 285
Everett street, in which the attorney
for the defense has announced that he
will demand a separate trial for each
of the 24 defendants.
F1aaer Prints Evidence.
These cases bristle with novelties,
one of which Is the attempt the police
will make to identify their Jlrlsoners
by finger prints taken at the time of
the arrest. - If this experiment succeeds
It will obviate ths difficulty the police
have had In the past of identifying
defendants who stand npon their right
not to be present at their trials.
An amusing aspect of the cases Is
that the police have in their possession
a combination safe taken from the
gambling house, and which they believe
contains the gambling paraphernalia.
It is tight locked and as yet no one
has been found to open It.
When the cases come to trial the city
will ask that the custodian of the com
bination open the safe in the presence
of the court, to show the guilt or in
nocence of himself and his companions.
