Scherrer was at Huber s garden with a
number of liis friends. They Imbibed
rather freely, and before going home,
selves. Officer Johnson appeared on
the scene at ouce and most of the
vonnir follows look to their heels.
Scherrer mid a conmaniou named Fred
Keisch scorned lo run from an ordin
ary patrolman, and stood their ground.
The officer threatened to arrest them,
whereupon Scherrer put his hand in
his hip pocket and remarked that there
would be something doing at the un
dertaker's if the attempt was made.
The ofliccr was not to be bluffed in
that manner, uud he sprang to the at
tack and used big club with such good
effect th::t Scherrer and his compan
ion were soon hors de combat. Each
of them was fined $3 and costs this
afternoon by Magistrate C. J. Smith.
( iltarrtH on a Car,
.-; A conductor on th-j Elm street car
line is suffering with a very aggrava
ted case of black eyetis today. The
black eye came about through his de
sire to enforce the rules of the com
pany which say that no one is to be
allowed to smoke in the street cars.
Some fellow from Molinc was riding
on the car. and the conductor soon no
ticed that he was smoking in the front
end of the car. He told the young fel
low that he was violating the com
pany's rules, whereupon the smoker
said he had rules of his own about be
ing interfered with. The conductor in
sisted on the cigaret being extinguish
ed, and as a last resort he took it out
of the fellow's mouth and threw it
out the window. Several minutes la
ter, when he was busy with book and
pencil taking number from the regis
ter, the smoker approached him from
the rear and soaked him in the eye,
and then made his get-pway. The eye
is a beautiful black hue today, and its
owner is after the smoker with a war
lant to serve on him.
Overloaded I lip llljc.
John Mannan, a Davenport young
ster c-f about ID years, hired a rig
from a livery in Davenport Saturday
evening and invited three of his
friends to ride to Huber's garden with
him. When the owner of the horse
and rig learned from a friend of the
;ioad which his horse was being made
to draw, he immediately sent a man
to this side of the river to get the rig
tar.d take it back to Davenport. The
I sporty youth refused to give it up,
however, and when the man tried to
f get a hold on the horse's head, the
horse was jerked back in an attempt
to get away. The jerk resulted in the
r breaking of the shaft and caused the
; arrest of the boy on the charge of dis-
orderly conduct- His father settled
with the owner of the rig for the dam
ages, and the boy will very likely be
'assessed a light fine on the charge of

game between Ben Laniont's Pink Sox
and Johnny Rinck's Microbes. The lit

score of 5 tc 1. Andy, the porter at

enthusiasm of members of the teama

his decisions. The battery for the
Microbes was Dutlin and Souders and
