How's this? Here are three old men,
all of them over 00 years of age, who
testified at the Watson inquest at Fort
Huron that they had been drunk all
day. Their names were, Michael La
hey, Samuel Joiley and Maurice Pow
ers. A part of them did not have suf
ficient money to pay for a nigut a ioa g
ing. Last week on Wednesday night there
was a good deal of excitement in Port
Huron over the death of Joseph Wat
son, a young "bum" of that city in a
saloon row on Huron avenue. Watson,
it seems, was well filled with fire-water
when he went into the saloon. A few
more drinks made him quarrelsome.
He attacked an old man named Morrij
Powers. Together they rolled down a
cellar-way. Powers was not badly hurt,
but Watson was knocked insensible.
A doctor was summoned and he was
soon restored to conslousness. He re
mained about the saloon for some time
and feeling somewhat better the bar
keeper Michael Doran offered to take
him home. He started, but says Wat
son thought he could go alone so left
him. He turned into the alley back of
Frank Goldle's store. There he was
soon found again, badly bruised and
bleeding, by the officers. He was taken
to the police-headquarters where he
soon died. It was at first suspected
that there was foul-play. After a thor
ough examination of witnesses, how
ever, the coroner's jury have decided
that his death was by accident.
