Tho Chief approached the watcher quietly, pulled his gun on him and said: "Open tho door quietly, walk on you tiptoes, don't cough or say a word and lead mo to whore the boys aro playing." Tho negro watcher obeyed; and as the chief followed to a rear room and stood in tho door, the colored-pi? yers never oven looked up; thoy did not know tho chief had fol lowed the outside watch Into the building. Tho chief waited a minute or two until tho stakes on the table liad run up to six or eight dollars. Then ho throw his gun on tho players, stopped forward, grabbed tho money on the table and said "this pot is mlno." Then ho virranged 'tho eight colored men in a column of two and marched them to jail. ana were haled Into court for a hear ing. Greeley Jacobs, E. Klssine, C. L.' Thomas D.
