Even up with apparently no further
chance for one to get ahead of the
other, is the status of the case con
cerning the two Milan youths, Henry
Von Ach, Jr., and Michael Heber, Jr.,
who have been both defendant and
complainant in police court cases this
week. Von Ach was assessed 3 and
costs this morning on a charge of as
sault and battery preferred by Heber.
The case is the outgrowth of a fight
between tbe Milan villagers last Mon
day evening while in the Von Ach sa-1
loon. Von Ach says that he merely ;
resented epithets which were directed
by Heber against the eider Von Ach,
proprietor of the saloon In which the
battle occurred. Heber was arrested
earlier in the week and paid a fine of
like amount as that paid by Von Ach.

to relatives In his native land, Swe

near the Burlington depot in this city
and through their convincing talk,
they induced the Galesburg man to
turn his cash over to them so that
they might secure a draft for him.
They gave him a valueless check for
$500 to hold as security pending their
return. Marcuson, from all reports.
Is still holding the check. Tbe local
police are working on the case.
