Tho proprietors of the disreputable dive on the northeast corner of Second and L streets seem determined not to let go without a contest. At last Monday's session of the City Trustees Police Judge Cravens complained of the place and in stanced cases of robbery that had been committed on or about tho premises by male and female thieves who resort there, j and asked tho board to revoke the licenso under which the dive was being run.
