THE RAID ON GAOLING CLUBS

[P»B PbKSS ASSOCIATION,] London, May 13. The,, gamblers arrested m Park place were bailed out, but those captured at the Adelphi Club were not. In connection, with the raids made on the fashionable Baccarat Club m Park Place an attempt will be made to prove that Lords .Dudley and Lurgan wero only occasional visitors. It is asserted that Lord Dudley lost £5000 and Lord Lurgan £2000. The Club, m which baccarat is played, has proved the ruin of many young men of fashion, and young Benzon, the plunger, was ruined there. Seaton. the proprietor of this gaming saloon, is well known as a noted gamester. The same may be said of Davis, an equally well-known money-lender, who supplied ready money to young men on post-obits. The raid by the police was made on the application of Lord Bateman, owing to the heavy losses of his son, the flon Captain William Spencer Bateman Hanbury.
