People in the neighborhood of Gas
Wehling's saloon on Seventeenth
street witnessed a lively time last
night. One Jame3 Richardson was
the cause of all the trouble. Richard
son, who lives in Davenport, had sus
pected his wife of unfaithfulness. He
believed that she was keeping compa
ny with another man. so last night he
came over on this side of the creek
with blood in his eye. He landed at
Wehling's saloon. There were quite
a number of people there, and Rich
ardson, believing that his wife was in
the place, signified bis intention to
shoot all of them full of holes, and
they thought he meant it, too.
About this time one of the men
in the saloon got out of the
door and reported the affair to the
police. Officer John Schmid hurried
to the scene. He went in the back
door, but Richardson went out the
front way and ran down Fourth ave
nue. Schmid followed. Richardseif
dashed in the alley way near Laflin's
livery and gave the olhcer the slip.
But here s where Richardson jumped
from the frying pan into the lire. He
did not realize the location of the po
lice station, and after evading Officer
Schmid he ran down Sixteenth street.
Officer William Eberhart, who was at
the station, took after him and canght
him near Jack Martin's saloon. While
he was running Richardson threw
away a number of articles that were
in his pockets, but as yet no revolver
nas been found.
Richardson was brought beforeJus-
tice Cramer this morning and was
fined f 7 and costs on a charge of dis
turbing the peace.
