mancurers attracted quite a crowd,
and someone prompted by a sense
of decency notified police headquar

navigable state than her comrade,
and made herself scarce before the
officers arrived. TheXichols woman
was taken down, and after a night's

by Magistrate Sehroeder this morn

It seems the difiicultv grows out of
the indebtedness of Waite to Trnes

money Saturday, and upon being in
formed that it could riot be paid at
present, struck Waite on the head
with a slung-shot, knocking him al
most into insensibility and inflicting
a scalp wound. He was afterward
caugfit by Officers Bender and Carnes.

The mass meeting of union labor
at Ilillier's hall Saturday cveuing
was largely attended, but none but
accredited representatives of labor
organizations were admitted. The
object was to discuss the political
situation and it was decided, it is
understood, to take a decided stand
to resent the action of the county
board in its shabby treatment and
total disregard of resolutions aad
petitions sent to the supervisors with
reference to the new courthouse.
The labor unions gave their influence
to the court house project and mtde
the bond issue possible with the hope
and conviction that its success would
prove a boon to local labor, and giving
the proposition for the b'.md issue
their united support they felt that
they had at least the privilege of peti
tioning the board when matters came
up in which they were interested.
Instead of even courteou treatment,
their supplications were not so much
as given respectful consideration.
Hence the just indignation of a 1

Lecture at the Court Hoaae.
William Clark, of Jacksonville, an
exponent of A. P. A. principles, lec
tured at tne court House vesteroav
afternoon on "The Flag." Clark
secured Turner hall Saturday even
ing for bis lecture, but was some
what reticent about explaining to the
ball guardian the title of his dis
course. His assurance of its being
merely an every-day lecture was
satisfactory, but when the manager
learned the true state of affairs he
changed his mind. When Clark and
his friends arrived at the hall iu the
afternoon tbey found it locked, being
given the 'reason therefor. Acorn
mittee called on Sheriff Hemenway
and he tendered the use of the coun
ty's court house where the lecture
was given before a small andience.
His lecture, instead of a patriotic na
ture, was devoted to attacks on the
Roman Catholic church.
