Eighteen men and frve women,

the result of their inability to pay
their fines. The charges against ail
but the proprietors, George Walker
and John Weathers, were being In
mates of a disorderly house and all
plead guilty. Their fines were $3
and costs. Walker and Weathers
were charged with conducting a dis
orderly house and they paid $25 and

The sheriff and his deputies,
George Biemon, Walter Klttilsen,
Jake Wlggers. Charles TraxelL John
Miller and William Gable, left the
sheriff's offloe In pairs, ehortly before
11:30 o'clock at night. Truxell and
Miller arrived at the club first and
tried to gain entrance to the second
floor, where the colored people had
congregated. Walker had the door
locked and he fumbled around with
the key, pretending that he could not
open the door. The sheriff and the
other deputies arrived about that
time and Bruner announced that if
the door "was not opened at once it
would be broken, whereupon it
swung inward. The delay had given
three of the men Inmates of the
place time to escape through a win
dow which opened over a barn but
the room was still crowded and it
was afterwards learned that it had
been in that condition all day.
ARMED FOR TROt'IlLE.
Walker had a big revolver on hie
person and another pistol of enor
mous dimensions lay on a shelf back
of the little bar over which liquor
was being dispensed. In addition
to these, two more guns lay In a
drawer tinder the counter. It look
ed as though Walker and Weathers
were prepared for any trouble that
might com. Besides selling liquor
without a license, the proprietors
were also doing a little gambling
on the side, as the deputies found a
crap table and some dice. At the
Jail one of the colored fellows was
asked if they had been shooting
craps for money and he grinned and
said. "Pehaw, MIstah Bruner, you
don't think we would shoot craps fo'
fun, does yer?"
