Samuel Addison was arrested on a
warrant taken, out by Mr. Geo. "W. Rice.
Addison had been rooming with Mr.
Rice several months and refused to pay
his rent, Mrs. Rice kept his trunk.
While Mr. Rice was out Saturday he
called and demanded his trunk but she
refused to give it to him and he knocked
her down. He was fined $10 and cost
by justice White but the fine was sus
pended after he paid his rent.
John O'Brien, a typical specimen of
the genus bum, felt very giddy Tuebday
night when he made off with a nice, big,
wooly wig owned bv a Colored lady of
his acquaintance. Justice R. H. Wliite
asked John Wednesday morning why
he stole it.
"How wuz I to know this yere thing
wuz a wig? I thought it wuz a bundle
of old lounge stufhV."
"They do look somewhat similar, but
I guess that if you make mistakes so
easy a $25 fine to leave the city will do
you no harm."
Justice R. II. White wiped his glasses,
shoved his docket aside, and folded his
right hand so as to make an impromptu
dice box, and then with a low "come
seven or eleven" threw the two dice
taken from Ike Linsey, a young Colored
man charged with vagrancy.
"Here Linsey, these dice are not
right. The sum of any two opposite
sides should count seven. These do
not. What were you doing with these
doctored dice if you are an honest man?"
"I work for the Lackawanna dock
company. Those dice were given to
me, I am not a vagrant. Here is my

dice do not augur much in your favor.

Mr. Martin Luther Perry a young
man that was arrested last week for
stealing was seen in the parlor of the
Cook county jail by a special reporter of

it may be true and then it may not. I

it was my intention to connect myself

churches I decided that it would be
better for me to join the Olivet Baptist
for the purpose of making mashes on the
good sisters. Did you join? No I didn't
bee*use I made so many mashes and
succeeded nicely. I did not confine my
mashmaking to the young sisters but
mashed on the married sisters also. I

The duties of the County Treasurer
are also intricate and extensive, re
quiring a vast deal of clerical work
which must be done with scrupulous
exactness and unremitting cave. Ex
perience is of the utmost value here,
and the laws which place the, specte.1
taxes of our city in the hands of the
county auditor and treasurer, have be
come so numerous that a novice would
have great difficulty in avoiding fre
quent errors and entanglements. Our
present treasurer, Mr. Willis A. James,
is just filling his first term, and has
proved a most faithful and efficient
officer. Of all the immense tax col
lections for last year, only about ten
per cent remained unpaid January 1st.
He came to this state from New Hamp
shire in 1855 when but about eight
years old, resided in Dakota and Rice
counties until 1878, when he came to
Minneapolis to accept the position of
deputy treasurer under Mr. Slocum.
This position he retained until his
election two years ajfo, and has been
familiar with all the financial growth
of our city for the past ten years.
With all possible experience and a
clean record, Mr. James adds a person
al courtesy which makes him deserved
ly popular with the public, and as he
has again been nominated there is
every reason to believe he will prove
he choice of the whole county by a
large majority. Citizens of all poli.ti:
cal parties, who appreciate good ser
vice, can conscientiously support him,
and it is difficult to see why a chauge
would be desirable for any reason what
