HARRISON SAYS JUDGES
SHOULD PROSECUTE
Mayor Harrison refuses to "stay
put," and has again sent a letter
to Chief Justice Olson of the mu
nicipal court, criticising the ac
tions of the court for not leaning
toward the prosecution rather
than the defense in the "case of
men arrested with "records.."
This is the third letter in the
series.
The mayor's first criticism was
caused by the release of several
men arrested in a saloon, and
known to be of bad character.
Judge Fry discharged them. His
answer to the mayor's first crit
icism was that the arrests seem
ed to be a fight between political
factions, and that the police had
not introduced evidence to show
the men possessed criminal rec
ords. Judge Olson in reply to the
mayor said the fault lay with the
prosecutor's office, controlled by
the mayor.
In the letter of. yesterday
Mayor Harrison says the ques
tion of a fight between political
factions is irrelevant. He also
charges that the complaint was
not amended to show that the
men were thieves, burglars, pick
pockets, robbers or confidence
men "because Judge Fry denied a
motion by the prosecutor to do
so. He says the policemen mak
ing the arrests claim to have call
ed the attention of the court to
the reputations of the men. He
says that in his opinion it is the
duty of the court to lean toward
the prosecution rather than the
defense in cases of this character. ,
THOROUGHNESS
I wrote a letter to a firm
I said, "The ground is glazed
with ice,
All frozen is the fever germ
And eggs are very high in
price
Which proves that it is winter;
so
I'd like'a ton of coal from you."
They sent me ice and eggs. You
know,
They didn't read my letter
through.
Another time I wrote and said
"The weather here is very wet,
The rain pours down from over
head, And sprinkling carts are rare,
you bet.
In view of which please send to
me
A rubber, mackintosh or two."
They sent a sprinkling cart. You
sqe,
They didn't read my letter
through.
The girl (an old, old tale I quote)
Declared "I cannot be your
wife."
The young man read the bitter
note
And went and took his sadden
ed life.
If he had read the other side
(I stole this story, that is true)
She would have been his happy
bride
He didn't read her letter
through.
The moral of this story is
In any sort of trade or biz
Whatever else you fail to do
Don't fail to read your letters
through!
