GAMING ACT BREACHES

SEQUEL. TO POLICE RAIDS

When parties of detectives simultaneously raided eight Chinese premises in Grey's Avenue, Pitt Street, Fergusson Street and Hobson Street yesterday afternoon, 50 Chinese were arrested on charges under the Gaming Act. Later all appeared before Mr. S. I. Goodall, S,M., at a special sitting of the Police Court, when eight men pleaded guiltv to a charge of using premises as a common gaming house. Detective-Sergeant F. N. Aplin, who was in charge of the raids, said the different premises were used for the selling and marking of pakapoo tickets. Mr. Henry Ah Kew, who appeared for the accused, said the places gave the police no trouble as they always knew where to find them. Each of the eight occupiers was fined £20. The remaining 42 men arrested were charged with being found on the premises of a common gaming house. All, with the exception of one who lived on the premises, and said he was not concerned with gaming, were convicted and fined £2.
