was able to arrive as tin
minutes of the
last meeting were bcinir read. After
many corrections. "The lioss" ordered
that l hey be placed in the vault of the

the "Inspector" idiould be mobbed if he
printed any more of the doings of the
"On the Corner Club.1 This serv ed as
a warning that I must either supress the
truth or lake the same trealiiieut as a
Spaniard will receive when they tackle
the American soldiers, I have no rea
son to desire any such treatment audi
urn in the business of inspecting in the
I'iinae of right, so I decided not to yield
to the demands of this club of loafers

I secured luvinissioii of "Hilly""
Marsh to occupy tiie board on the tel
ephone pole near the corner, this would
enable me to gain the information de
sired. Taking mv scat on that platform
I listened to the conversation and subjects
under discussion. This is what I gath
ered in substance : "Giles" knows how
to show" his Colors, the Mayflower is a3
and any Spaniard who altenips to enter
the yard of this geniel alderman from
the 'famous" ward "will catch a shot
from those powerful cannons. Giles
will prohnly lire a salute when the com

Flags were hoisle I "On the Corner"
last night but there came near being a
serious row because no flag of the Cuban

A few lawyers were sitting in ono of
tho city restaurants a few clays ago eat
ing luin-h and discussing difiorcut sub
jects win n uuo of them told tho follow
iiig story :
This occurred somo years ago in tho
office i f n former justico of tho peace.
An attorney, who bus sinco left Sioux
City, bud been engaged to defend a man
fcr the .-rime of petty larceny. The law
yer knew th it the case against his client
was u pretty strong ouo and ha decided
to beard the linn in his den. As ho en
tered the room bo tolittbo justico of tho
case, the uumo of bis client and added
ho did not think there was any evidence
to convict. At the fame timo he slipped
a $20 goldpieco in tho baud of the jus
ticu mi l save biiu a knowing wiuk. Tho
court said nothing, but, pulling open
tho cash drawer, slipped the money in.
The case went to trial, und after the
evidence had all been introduced there
appeared to bo no question cf tho guilt
of tho defendant, tut his counsel was
confident, thinking the goldpiece had
done the work. The ooWct then summed
up tho case, and, to. the astonishment
of tbo defendant's connstd, eaid :
"Tho court finds the defendant guilty
as charged in the information and fines
him $100, cf which amouut $20 lias
been paid. Tbo defendant will bo com
mitted to the county jail until tho re
mainder is paid in to this court."
Nothing inoro was said, und tho jus
tico settled back in his chair, satisfied
that tba laws of tDo state had been up
bald and a dishonest attorney had been
left in tho lurch. Sioux City Journal.
It Killed Illln.
"Spcakin;; of passes," said an old
legislator, "I recall onco, when all of
us were given un annual pass and our
den ands for pusses for relatives were
honori d, bow a member made the most
of the privilege. Ilu wrote a short note
to tbu Central's Albany agent demand
ing a pass for himself and wife and two
children oir all lines from Albany to
Los Angeles. Not receiving the passes
as soon as bo expected them, ho wroto
another letter declaring that bo wanted
tboso patses at once and no fooliug
about it, as be wished to use them now,
not six mouths hence. For somo reason
his demand was honored, and be receiv
ed tho passes. Was bo ostouisbpd or
grateful;' Not n bit, Ho held them for
a week, mid then sent them back with
a note which read, 'Have these passes
indorsed pood for berths and meals. '
"Tho Albany agent duly transmitted
tho communication to President Depew's
private sec retary. Tho member waited
awhile, in d then ho weut for tho Al
bany ngoit, who could only answer
that bo hid duly dispatched tho passes
to headquarters. Another wait mid then
another wrathful demand from the new
member lor bis passes. Tbo Albany
agent, to rid himself of tho annoyance,
sent a letter to headquarters detailing
tho new member's persistent demands.
Ho reueived a reply which he duly turn
ed over to his tormentor. It read, 'The
man who opened that letter and
read it fell dead, and no ono can be in
duced to pick it up to seo whai it con
