One 12 Years Old Was Shooting Craps
When Arrests Were Made.

A crap game in a store building at Mount Washington was raided yesterday forenoon by Deputy Marshals Hermon Wiesflog, C. C. Whaley and N. B. Oleson. Seven players were arrested. At the county jail three of them were allowed to go on account of their youth, the youngest being 12, while the other two were but 14 years old. The other four were held on a charge of gambling. All of them live at Independence. They will be arraigned before Justice Shoemaker this morning.
