THEY PAINTED THE TOWN.
Mayor Holloman Looks After tho Pay for tho
Paint-Prlco Firm and High.
Last Sunday ovoning thore wore "hot
times" in tho old town for about thirty
minutes. Mayor I lol loman recoived
word that thore was a full-grown row in
progress at a house within tho corporate
limits, and immediately ho and Deputy
Sheriff H. H. Moss and Marshals HOCK
anti Garrison put out for tho scone of
h.(Hie. They met a part of tho combat
ants coming down Collogo street, and
attempted to mako arrests. T-ho cavalry
company objootod, however, and didn't
hesitate to s-, y so. Tho gleam of a pis
tol barrel was suflioioitt to warn thc ofi'i
cors that thoy must act-and they did.
The butt end of a shotgun laid gently
(moro or less) against tho hoad of ono
sturdy warrior cooled his ardor for tho
time hoing, and soon tho whole "push"
was pushing its way to tho county jail.
In less than an hour niuo adults and two
infants wero safely resting behind tho
bars. Tlioro was a beautiful lay-out in
tho way of weapons taken from tho pris
oners-knives, pistols, knocks and a
razor. Kighty-horso pop-skull whiskey
was at tho bottom of tho row, of course.
Monday morning Mayor Ilolleman was
laying for thom. When thc prisoners
entered tho "judgment hall" and the!
Mayor cabed tho roll there was a sparkle
in his eyes that meant business, before
ho adjourned court he had imposed lines
amounting in tho aggregate to $100.00.
Forty dollars in lines wore paid in Undo
Sam's Philippine currency, and one
"gent" announced his decision to quit
tho "push" and join tho "gang" for
fifty days. Two who were lined $5 or 5 j
days each aro at work on tho streets
repairing bridges and cleaning out]
ditches. A few moro displays of such
rowdyism as was shown Sunday will
convince tho culprits that when they
como boforo Mayor Holleman "they are
up against the real thing." The ti mo
for "painting the town" without paying
for the paint has passed.
