GRIND IN POLICE
COURT NOT HEAVY
Comparatively Few Arrests on Labor
Way Officers Direct Efforts
Towards Keeping Order.
Despite the large number of Intox
icated men noticed on the streets
yesterday, the grind in the police
court today was not unusually heavy,
there having been many Sundays
when more arrests were made. The
police force exerted itself in keeping
order rather than arresting every man
who over imbibed, and the result was
that out of 25 or so who awoke in
jail this morning, . scarcely half of
them were booked as drunks. Sev
eral were In for fighting and most
of the others were arrested for fast
driving. These latter offenders gave
the police the most trouble and every
effort was made 16 get all who dis
obeyed the laws In this respect. One
man who refused to stop when or
dered to do so by an officer, was
chased In an automobile and headed
off before he could get to the bridge
on his way to Davenport. Police
Magistrate C. J. Smith heard the
cases this morning and practically all
of the offenders were fined, the
amounts ranging from $1 to $100.
Three were sent to the county Jail.
