Resenting his ejection from one of
the rooms in the rear of the Dhulster
saloon, Adel Von DeMorter swung a
healthy blow with his right to Hector
Dhulster's chest, knocked him against
the- wall, and left the saloon. In a few
minutes he came back to buy a drink.
He was turned down. He became en
raged, and for an hour filled the air
with threats of what he intended to

morning was sent to the county bastlle
for 10 days, the charge being disorder

room into which Adel walked without
invitation, and it was for that reason

He was so peeved this morning that
he would have done anything to even

regard at all for the laws on election
day. He wanted to tell other things,
but realized that he could do little to
better him in his predicament. Adel
owes the proprietor of the saloon $19
for drinks, and that was one of the
rcpsons for the trouble.
