H. White on West Badillo street, was raided this week by City Marshal Mehnert and a posse of citizens, and a wash tub filled with bottled beer on ice was seized and confiscated. Hundreds of empty bottles filled the dingy room, and at the time of the raid several men were In the place drinking beer. The men in the room were Wilson, Connor, Macay and Thomas. All were arrested and taken before Recorder Douglas who fixed their fines, which were paid promptly by all parties. The joint in this old building has long been a nuisance, and White, the owner, was told several times of the nature of business being conducted there, hut said that he had no knowledge of it and asked to accompany the officers and be "shown." When the nature of the business was disclosed, City Marshal Mehnert arrested him for renting a building for illicit purposes. White was violently incensed at his arrest. He is a man of considerable means and some prominence In the town, having been at one time a candidate on the Democratic ticket for Justice of the Peace of Rowland Township. Milo Wilson, the man who conducted the joint as the ostensible proprietor, paid his fine without a murmur. Wilson is the same man who was operating a similar place of business In the "old red shack" in the rear of the Covina House the night that this famous dwelling was gutted by fire.
