these circumstances he thought ho was
entitled to ask leniency In the imposing of

An Obnoxious J.mr.
John C. Murray, a grocer in tho county,
was lined $2 in tho Police Court this
morning, under the law of 1857, for selling
merchandise on Sunday. The cvldenco
was to the cll'cct that the accused de

lo customers in his store on Sunday. This
law Is in cll'cct in the county and George
town, but not in the city proper, where
hundreds of crocerv stores are kont onon
for business on Sunday mornings. The
evidence was to the cll'cct that goods were
delivered to customers on Sunday who
were not prepared to keep fresh meats
and come Saturday night.
