Three of those arrested were charged with running houses of ill fame and were placed under $500 bonds. Their trials will come up later.
There has been much complaint of the Lake this year and from what we can learn it has been going the limit this season. Something will have to be done to stop it and perhaps this will be the first step towards cleaning it up. From what we learned a day or so ago it would seem that another raid would bear fruit as some of the places we are informed were still running their slot machines. Law abiding citizens are tired of lawless conditions at the lake and it is high time that something was done to stop it. Cases have been reported where women have been insulted while driving along the road to Crown Point. This sure is the limit and if it continues people would be justified in raiding the places.
