1903 - THE ODLIN SLOT MACHINES - Taken from Him by the Deputy Sheriffs Yesterday to Be Destroyed Today.
The ex-city marshal Odlin's got a bunch of nickel-in-the-slot machines at his home on Newman street. These machines were seized by him while he was city marshal. They were initially stored in the Lewiston city building, but as Odlin was nearing completion of his term of office, he removed them to his home. The machines have been confiscated and will be destroyed. Odlin told Sheriff Cummings that even though 'the law states that the slot machines shall be destroyed,' once Odlin had left office he felt he 'had no right to destroy the machines as he was not holding office, at the present time.'

For a time in the summer, he seemed to gain a little, but only for a short while, and for months he had gradually failed. Determined not to give up, he attended to his business duties every day and was town town only Tuesday forenoon.
In the afternoon he was taken ill. His condition became serious and early Wednesday morning a physician was called. From Tuesday afternoon until death came the following night, he suffered intensely but not once did he lose consciousness and his courage remained good. His trouble was hemorrhage of the stomach.
