Mail Tribune 100

March 7, 1916


Viola Stone and Arthur Diltz were arrested this morning by Chief of Police Hittson and Constable Hammond on warrants charging them with maintaining a nuisance in the conduct of the Elwood rooming house. On a search warrant the officers found evidence that the place is used for "trafficking in liquor," it is said, which under the prohibition statute, is maintaining a nuisance. The Elwood rooming house is located on East Main street. The case will be given a preliminary hearing before Justice of the Peace Glenn O. Taylor at 10 o'clock tomorrow morning.


  • The case of Brosins vs. Southern Pacific company, called in the circuit court this morning, was halted, after the jury was in the box and the attorneys for each side had presented their opening statements.

Should this be approved by the headquarters of the Southern Pacific in San Francisco, the case will be dismissed.
