Police Crusades Against Resorts Brings Very Few Arrests.

The underworld has kept out of the way of raiding squads since Chief R. W. Hammill began his crusade against vice, and recent night raids have not been very successful. Immoral resorts, the police say, have temporarily quieted down.

The vice squad, under Sergeant Michael Cassidy, made two raids yesterday afternoon, one at 706 Wyandotte street, and one at 907 Wyandotte street. Two women and four girls were booked on vagrancy charges and later released.
