H. M. Schriver this afternoon notified
that saloon keeper that he might
choose between paying a fine of $100

his saloon license. After hesitatingly
denying that there had been any vio

keep his license. The case was heard
before Justice J. H. Cleland.
VIOLATION WEEK AGO.
A week ago the saloon was visited
by city men and beer was purchased.
Because there was another saloon un-
terday VanGeetson's saloon not only
sold beer to these same men. but offi
cers saw through the rear door signs
of the flagrant violation of the Sab
bath law. VanGeetson was Informed
that there would be no alternative for
him should there he another violation.
Five minutes after he had gone down
into a ditch to excavate so that others
might repair & leak in a gas main, Sam
Burgass fell in & heap as a result of
the inhalation of gas fumes, and hut
for the opportune return f William
1 Hunt 1004 Fourth avenue, who was
temporarily in charge of the job, the
life of the laborer would have gone
out before his plight would have been
noted. A force of men in the em
ploy of the People's Power company
was at work ln a trench on Twentieth
street south of Third avenue. When
Hunt came back to the particular sec
tion in which Burgass was working, he
saw hira huddled In a heap in the
hole. Calling for assistance, he dragg
ed the unconscious form of the pas
victim to the surface. Artificial restor
ation methods were applied and medi
cal aid was summoned.
IS SOOX REVIVED.
Within a minute after physicians re
turned the man had shown signs of life
by groans which came 'forth as tfcl
air forced the gas from his funga.
Then he was placed In the machine of
Dr. E. M. Sala and taken to St. An
thony's hospital. There other restora
tives were applied and Burgass' condi
tion was pronounced as favorable.
The leak In the piping was temporar

of a ruling of the supreme court of j
the state of Illinois, upholding their
contention in a case involving a $22,

for the past two years.
The case is that of Roberts et al vs.
tne Lnion urainage district and was
begun In the Aledo court in July of
1910. Roberts and other commis
sioners of the Hay island drainage
district, extending from New Hoston
up to one mile south of the Rock Is
land county line, along the Mississ
ippi erected a ditch just south of the
I nion people which extends from one
mile south of the Rock Island county
line to one mile north of Copperas
creek. This ditch joined the higher
one and consequently drained it.

The Bay island people erected a
pumping plant at New Hoston at an
expense of about $12;,O"0 and then
sued the I'nion company for a pro
portionate share of the expense
thereof under the act of 1903, which
provides for the payment of benefits
by an upper to a lower drainage dis
trict. The case was tried before
Judge Henry K. Burgess, who on the
