Mistake of an Officer.
Tho name of Mr. McSherry, who waa
mentioned In Tuesday's Times in con?
nection with the police court proceed- I
Inga, was placed on tho dockot by mis?
take of one of tho otllcora. It seems
that this gentleman had complained to
the mayor about tho disorder prevailing
in tho neighborhood by reason of Mrs.
Byrd being thero. She had applied for
& warrant to Police Justice Williams for
tbe arrest of tho (irons brothers who re?
fused to issue it. She then went to Jus?
tice Camper and obtained a warrant,but
not for McSherry, but ho was summoned
as a witness in tho case against Mrs.
Byrd,who was arrested on the charge of
running a disorderly house. Mr. Me.
Sherry's name was uaed on account of
it being placed on the docket of tho po?
lice court, alonj; with the others who
were charged with creating a disturb?
ance, by Mrs. Byrd. Be is exonerated
from all blame, and It is believed that
the Gross brothers will also be exoner?
ated If the case ever comes to a trial.
Plana for the Office linlldtng.
The revised plans for tho new general
office building of the Norfolk and
Western railroad arrived yesterday
morning from Philadelphia, and bids
will be received for the construction of
the building at once, and although the
time for tbe closing of bids has not been
arranged, It is hoped that the matter
will be In such a Bhape that the contract
will be let within ten days or two weeks.
The revised plans do not materially
change the character of tbe building or
the material out of which It is to bo
constructed. The plans called for a
building six stories high inolndlng the
basement. The frontage on Jefferson
street remains unobanged, but the
Shenandoah avenue front will be twelve
feet narrower than the original plans
called for. Tbe first or basement story
will be of sandstone and the balance
will be constructed of brick made from
clay on the Ohio division of the road.
It is hoped that work will be commenced
on the new building in a very short
Italney Taken to Kentucky.
