CITY SEEMS NOW THOROUGHLY PURGED OkraJ's "sunrise court" In West Hammond, an Innovation of the reform element, has apparently fulfilled its mission, for no candidates were present when It convened yesterday morning. Sightseers of the Calumet region now eem to have no place to go but home Its sponsors, Chief of Police OkraJ Police Magistrate Adam Stachowlcz and Mayor Woszoiynskl are elated. They believe that the town is being vindicated in the eyes of its neighbors by the strenuous battle for civic righteousness. Nothing to do But Nothing. The results of police activity in West Hammond ' during the week end are given, as no attempts, no errors and a score of 1.000. A week ago fourteen were arrested and fined, two being women. Throughout the year police have never failed to find something to do on a Saturday night and therefore the chief is of the opinion that those in Gary and Hammond that patronize the under-world have learned a lesson. The police maintain that there are no longer dives in West Hammond. White lights Gleam. A few gay spots where men and women congregate still remain, though the district is closed. Cafes like the Union and Columbia and hotels, such as the Astor. and Colonial, are the points of Interest. Although not to be recommended as stopping places for local tourists, one of these cakes Is not without an atmosphere of Bohemal, whatever Bohemia Is. In the Union cafe an old veteran of the civil war Is often found playing sprightly airs on a rickety fife to the faked accompaniment of a rag time pianist.
