GALLS THE COURT
Pat O'Connell Makes Fatal Mis

FINE OF $300 IS IMPOSED

Have llccii First Tumble.
Pat O'Connell was fined $300 for
drunkenness in police court this morn
ing by Magistrate C. .1. Smith. Pat ac
cumulated a large bundle last night
and finished at police headquarters
with ii iiiitiiber of other disorderlies
who were rounded up. It is eiisioni

Pat htl not hail the honor of a pr
vious introduction to the magis:rate
and consequently when the latter
passed through the corridor this morn
ing did not recognize that he was ihe
one who was to pass upon the serious
ness of his offense. The magistrate
remarked that the whole crowd de
served sentences m the county jail.
Pat was on his dignity instanter, and
reminded the official that it would
take one of a different build than him
to put him away in Kittilsenville.
There was no reply, the magistrate re
alizing that the prisoner did not know
to whom he was addressing Ins re
CavfM Bt-'ttrf Court.
Pat caved when he faced the occu
pant of the police court rostrum.
May the Lord help me now," he said
as he fell itito a chair to rest his hold
over. Pat admitted that he took
iboard more than he could handle, but
declared it to have been his first slip
on the redeye route. Me would cet o.i
the water cart and remain there for
ever if the court would overlook his
present tumble. Hut the magistrate
was not satisfied of the truthfulness
of Pat's statements or of the sincerity
cf his promise of future abstemious
ness, and made his fine $200.
"That's an awful blow," said Pat.
'If it was any more I fear I would take
Then Pat's case was further aggra
ated by the information volunteered
by one of the officers to the effect that
he made an attempt to eseane last
ight while being piloted to the sta-
lon. tor this the court added another
Sinn, making the total $30u.
Wit MHIimvm M.iKiHtrnte.
Pat finally saw that it was useless
to It el badly over his nlisht. and he
made a plea for leniency, injecting
wittici.-ni into his talk that got the
audience "going." including the conrr.
who is said to have lost a button off
his vest by his hearty laughing. Here
is where Pat's diplomacy won, and the
court, mellowed by the Celt's good na
ture, suspended the penalty, but said
he would hold the fine over his head
and would enforce it on the first repeti
tion of the offense. Pat was profuse
in his thanks, and declared that water
as his favorite beverage hereafter.

eve ry wnere you are hampered bv mili

leader of society. The relative stand
ing of the soldier and the student l.i
illustrated by the fact that even the
universities suffer from the annoyance
of the military regime. I did' not at
tend a single lecture at the Iniversir
of Berlin that was not disturbed l,y

an incessant beating of drums and
marching of soldiers in the streets,

"You can scarce! realize until v.tj

what it really means to Germany. In
an agricultuial district I saw a force
of SO persons at work in a field. Oi
the SO workers, Ch were children and
women, many of them old anel beu.
I asked the superintendent the reason
for this state of affairs, and he told me
that labor is so high that men could
not be employed. Where are the men?
They are called away from t lie useful
occupations of life to the most useless
that of soldiers.
At the same time that thse hun
dreds of thousands of men are with

Dr. Foss did not attempt to give full
account of his travels last night, but

different places visited. They included
the island of Ceylon, India. Egypt, th ,

"When all things are taken into con
