Court House Eow Between
Clark and Lynch Takes On
a New Angle.
Sunday, March 4, 1917.
Telephone Douglas 137.
News of "Goings-On" at Burgess-Nash Monday
Big damage knits against the
county are now threatened as one of
the results of the raid by a force of
sheriff's deputies on Lakeside club,
commonly known as Shay-shay's
road house, according to the attorney
representing the majority of the thir
teen people arrested and held for sev
eral hours in jail.
Court housers see in the raid an angle
to the rumored feud between Sheriff
Clark and Commissioner Lynch
arising out of the jail-feeding row.
Adherents of the commissioner assert
that the sheriff believed he was raid
ing a resort in which the former had
an interest Commissioner Lynch
was at the court hpuse bright and
early and gave out the following
signed statement:
"Sheriff Clark's statement that. I
told him I own one-half of Lakeside
road house is absolutely and deliber
ately false, and" everybody who knows
me knows that it is false. I do not
o..n any interest in Lakeside or any
other road house. I could not afford
to if I wanted to on account of my
"John Ford, manager of the road
house, is a former neighbor and
friend of rm..o. Clark is aware that
this fact is generally known and that
I have no other interest in tf place.
He thinks that will make his false
statements more probable.
"If Clark is honestly intending to
enforce the law, I ' am fer him.
Whether he made this raid for spite
work will be shown by his subsequent
Will Keep Lid On.
The sheriff declares no personal
feeling enters in the raid, but that he
is going to keep the lid on in Doug
las county, regardess ot whom it at
fected. '
Charges of being inmates of a dis
orderly house were placed against the
eight men and five women arrested,
according to the sheriff, but their at
torney says no charges were placed
against them. "I have no record of
the arrests," said Chief Deputy Fos
ter. All of the person? taken to the
county jail as a result of the raid
were released a few hours later on $50
cash bonds. The money put up for
the bonds was refunded when the re
leased alleged road housers appeared
at the court house.
"We can get them again if we need
them," said the sheriff. "They've all
given their words that they'll appear
if wanted."
To File Charges.
Fbllowing a conference with County
Attorney 1'agney ' Chief Deputy
Sheriff Foster declared that com
plaints charging selling liquor with
out a license will be brought against
Frank Galloway, bartender, and John
Leonard, who Foster says" is the raan
ager of the Lakeside resort
Meanwhile the jail feeding row goes
on, the county board refusing to al

ary's purchases for the bastile.i They

The sheriff has borrowed $500 at a

semi-monthly pay checks and other
moneys coming into his office.
