Haak, who was found unconscious on

Sept. 22. was able to appear in police
court yesterday afternoon. He was in
jured as a result of a blow struck by
Axel Johnson, following a brawl which
started in the saloon of Edward an
Daele, coiner of Seventh avenue and
Fourteenth street. Johnson, who ha?
been held at the county jail pending
the recovery of Haak, was arraigned
with him before Magistrate Gustafson
Both men were charged with assauit
with a deadly weapon, but this charge
was dismissed and each was allowed
to plead guilty to disorderly conduct
Haak, it seems, was the aggressor,
and he was fined $15.90. Johnson
was fined $10.55. It will fcs remem
bered that Van Daele's saloon license
was revoked Sept. 30 because it was
open for business on the Sunday on
