RAID ON SUNDAY GAMBLERS. A sensational raid on a school of gamblers was made at Crosland Hill, near Huddersfield, on Sun- day morning. In an old quarry at the place named gamblers have met Sunday after Sunday, and "scouts" were posted in several elevated positions. Plans for the operations had bl'en carefully laid by the Iiuddersfield borough police, in conjunction with the county police, and the raid was made with th? utmost precision. A large posse of officers in plain clothes were stationed at various points surrounding the gambling resort, and a couple of officers, disguised as "pigeon-flvers"— carrying baskets and throwing up birds close to the law- breakers—gave the signal at the appointed time, between eleven nnd twelve o'clock. A great rush then ensued in all directions, there being at least fifty or sixty of the fraternity present. Walls, Judges, and ditehes v.ere cleared with the utmost celerity, but. several of the olVenders were captured by the oflicers lying in ambush. Hundreds of people left their domestic duties to witness the stampede, and the usual quietude of the Sabbath was rudely disturbed. A temporary police station had been arranged at Milnsbridge, and thither the captives were taken and placed in charge of other cfticers, whilst many others were recognised by the constables.
