Deputy District Attorney Adams took
this view of the matter and believed
that gambling in Milwaukle has not

Senator Hedges, attorney for the Mil

a legal right to exiat at Milwaukle and
to continue selllna- Dools snd olavins

clamoring for obedience to the law are
merely urging that the Milwaukle club
be oermitted to continue. Senator
Hedges issued a statement in spport of

"The legislshire of this state 'has
power to license pool selling, poker play

called "social evil.' Only the first two

generally which without such euthorli

"The state cannot ' proseoute as
nuisance that which It has authorised.
The term 'public nuisance' applies only
to something occasioned by acta done In
violation of law. A work which is au
