Their Bondsmen Can Not Be
Held Liable for Imprisonment.
A case which affects every member of
the Police Department of this city was de
cided Monday last by Judge Shackelford
Miller in favor of the policemen. Some
months ago a member of the department
arrested a man for a minor offense who
subsequently brought suit for false arrest
against the officer. There have been a
number of like suits during the past few
years, anil :u several instances the bonds
men got the warm end of the decision.
After the argument had been finished
Judge Miller decided in favor of the de
fendant. This decision means a great (
deal to the policemen of the city. In (
rendering his opinion Judge Miller stated
that the policemen were only required to
give bond for their good behavior and
honorable conduct while members of the
Police Department, and that bondsmen
can not be held responsible for arrests.
The case was bitterly fought, and the de-'
ctaion will have the effect of stopping
petty prosecution of the members of the (
police force for a performance of their

Catholic social and benevolent society,

since which a charter list of eighty
names have been secured, with a bright
outlook for the future of the local body,
as it will be composed of the best people
in the city.
Much of the success of the undertaking
is due to the untiring efforts of Mr. Matt

ris, T. J. Tierney and W. II. Newman.
The Knights of Columbus is an or
ganization similar to the Elks with three
degrees. The membership is compoted
of successsful business and professional
men, who meet for fellowship and benev
olence. Those who desire to do so can
join the insurance branch. The installa
tion of officers and conferring of degrees
will take place at the Elks' Hall begin-
ging at u o'clock tomorrow morning,
after the visieors and members attend

by John J. Cone, of New York city, Su
preme Grand Knight; Warren E. Mosier,
of Youugstown, Ohio, Supreme Deputy
Grand Knight and William A. Maling,
also of Youugstown, Grand Organizer.
The first degree will be conferred by the
Cincinnati and the second by the Chicago
branch. The ritual is a very impressive
one. After the first two degrees have
been conferred a banquet twill be ten
dered the national offieers and visitors at
the Louisville Hotel, and the third degree
will follow in the eveniug.
Prominent members will be here from
New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Cin
cinnati, Pittsburg, Joliet. Yonngstown
and elsewhere. Two hundred are ex

That was the last meeting of the Vol

another meeting, anil they dwindled
away by degrees. The sudden and ar
bitrary dissolution of the Volunteers by
Charlemont has been variously explained
some explaining that the British Gov
ment had an understanding with Charle

of an open quarrel his desire for the
tranquility of the country.

his opinion that had tjiat reform bill in

double triumph to bigotry and to the
British Government to reject that bill
and dissolve that Volunteer Convention.
