POLIGEJOJTINGS. Dance in North Topeka Has an Exciting Termination. Invitation List Too Restricted to Maintain Peace. "SOUR GRAPES" PARTY One Is Organized Which Brings Out the Police. Oakland Zouaves Caused Some Excitement Last Night. A social dance was being enjoyed by L goodly crowd at the home of Fred nd Nellie Smith Saturday night when I crowd or men .wno naa not been invi ted organized a "sour grapes" party nd moved on the Smith home. The sore heads were led by a .Mr. Chesney, who arrived at the house of Smith at 1017 North Van Buren and forcing, himself into the room demand ed that a young lady there go home with him. Such accommodation being refused Chesney proceeded to his trou ble making. Going outside, where a number followed, he drew forth a six Bhooter, told them all where to "head In" and punctured ( his remarks with frequent 'shots. ; Attempts to quiet him were in vain and the party became too I riotous for the good people, who began leaving. At this juncture Officers Walker and Finkerton appeared and took the men left, who seem to be those invited and not those who "butted in." .Those ar rested and awaiting trial for being drunk and disorderly are Fred Smith, Henry Harrison, Dave Wilkerson, Fred Fisher, J. M. Pendegrast. Warrants will be issued for the real drunken dis turbers who escaped. Section 414 of ordinance No. 2623 of the automobile chapter is fast becom lng a byword with autoists. Since Chief Eaton commenced his crusade against the unreadable numbers a week ago there have been over a dozen arrests. Sunday. Officer Fribance arrested J. R Burrow for a violation of said 414 and he was fined S19 in Judge Urmy's court this morning. The Dupree brothers. Andy at 312, and George, at 1007, it is claimed, have been carefully watching both ends of Kan sas avenue for, and stopping any gamblers who might chance to pass either way. They will be tried this ev ening before Judge Urmy. H. Zeigman and two others. Joe -Wless and Nudh Meadows, are to be tried at the same time for a. like offense. A tent pitched in Garfield park by dike men seemed to the officers on patrol to be of uncommon Interest to a bunch of graders Sunday. As a consequence, an investigation was started which resulted In the arrest of Chas. Robinson, John O'Brien. A. Majors, Jim Lane, Fred Miller, J. W. Cfrrtis and A , Fowler charged with gambling. , Some of them complained that they were broke, one fellow had dice, and another had money but suffi cient evidence for conviction was lacking and all were discharged. However, Chas. Speedman, a night watchman, who was arretted with the same bunch for drunkness was fined 95. Officers Fribance and McGuire were certain that he was drunk, while Charles did not tank he had bane full. The judge delivered the opinion that men are liable to be mistaken as to. their condition when they have been drinking, as Charles admitted he had. About he worst jumble of names a white man may find to deal with were hauled Into the police station last night after a raid at Kate Heitman's. Ausatacio Ballanca, Alphonso Calder on, Christo Luprez, Paul Jessup, John P. Rossow and Ferdinand Chocklock, all of whom bear some relation to Mexico, and Mary Evans, a northern brunette, were brought with Mrs. Hcitman charged with par taking of her hospitality. The ar rests wore made by Detectives Hutton and Sauls and Griffin who have sources enough for evidence to make the evening session of police court one of interest. Stephen Israel, a young German tinner, who lives too near the river for a careful bringing up was arrested Sunday by Detective Pauls. Steve was drunk" and very disorderly, quarreling with somebody, he cannot just remem ber who. He was fined $10 in court this morning and admonished never to get drunk again. This is his third or fourth offence in the last two months. The Oakland Zouaves are a'jain heard from. - Their operations have been carefuly covered lately but last night they openly harassed a church going couple and even stoned a deacon A Word (roil Out-ef-Toi Recently the sales superinten dent of one of the largest, if not the largest food producing plant in the world had occasion to visit our shop. On his return to his home, he wrote un a personal letter Trom which we take the liberty to quote, since it may serve In a meas ure to indicate what strangers may think of our humble establishment. After speaking at length of the many good things he saw and, of his kindly reception, he says: "I trust that your place of business was thronged with people on Thursday last as a result of the very pretty invitation you sent out to your neighbors to come in and see 'The Place That is Differ ent;' and It Is that because the own ers are different, and the owners are different because they are orig inal, and that Is a doctrine I preach eternally to our representatives, but then ycu know there are hundreds of thousands who would rather be back in the body of the company shouting, 'I am coming," than at the head of It as a leader, crying for those behind to 'Come on.' Of course it costs some money to do things 'different,' but unless some of us do things differently there is no progress." Keep your eye on us. we really feel that w-e are in the "Come On" class and we are going to try to stav In the lead. The Ideal Bakery "The Place That Different" HEIL & SCHAEFER, Prop.. 121 W. 6th St. Phone 190 of the Church of Galilee on Emmett street. This organization Is maintained ostensibly for the purpose of regulat-1 lng the conduct and company of church going young ladies of the com munity. The division In question has headquarters at the grocery and bar ber shop In the viclniiy of the Galilee church. There Is a very attractive young lady living on Green street who has charmed a younsr man who lives so far away as Lake street. It is the custom of this admirer to call upon the lady Sunday nights and take her to the evening service at the church. Now Lake street is in a foreign country so far as Green street is con cerned and anyone from there Is an invader and therefore liable to pursuit by the Zouaves. Many times recently has the lover from Lake street been direly threatened by word and letter that he must cease his visits into Gall lean precincts. Tet he did not heed. Last night when he entered the church with his fond friend from Green street, a band lay outside in waiting for the end of the service and his mutilation. As it happened, however, they boasted of their Intentions and the proposed victim- was warned to re- main in the church. The pastor of the church himself trave the warning ana interested himself in the outrage ous condition of affairs, sending a deacon to a neighboring house to phone the police. As the deacon emerged from the building he was be sieged with a volley of stones as a martyr of old. Neverthless, he reach ed his destination and the gang dis appeared. Today, the lover iad, his father, and preferred one. are cam paigning against their persecutors. A week ago last night the same gang went to a house where the couple were visiting and tried to get the young man to come' out and take his penalty. The girl is pretty. WHITELAW REID TO QUIT Rumor of Recall of Gay Ambassador In London. London, Dec. 21. In diplomatic circles of London it Is said that Whitelaw Reid will leave the dip lomatic service when ' the new ad ministration comes into power in Washington. Ambassador Reid has caused it to be known that he is willing to continue at his present post, but he has been unable to obtain any intima tion from Washington that Mr. Taft would be pleased to permit him to re main at the court of St. James. Society will part with the Reids reluctantly, and his departure will be a grievous blow to London trades men. The ambassador has been an extravagant entertainer. He set such a pace in the luxury and splendor of ambassadorial receptions, dinners, luncheons and balls that even the Russian, French and German am bassadors, who control huge govern ment sums for purposes of entertain ment, could not keep up with the am bassador from America. A story has reached London from Washington to the effect that the ex travagant splendor maintained by Reid has displeased Mr. Roosevelt and Mr. Taft. Not only has Reid eclipsed all preceding ambassadors at the court of St. James In the magnificent state with which he maintains the American embassy. but he has aroused the enw .of the American am bassadors at 'other capitals in Europe L who have been unable to emulate Reid. The report from Washington Is that Mr. Taft has expressed a desire that the New American ambassador in London, whoever he may be, shall re vert to the simplicity and style of liv ing characteristic of famous American ambassadors of the past. Diplomatic circles in London have not yet re ceived a hint who Reld's successor will be. He will have to be a mil lionaire In order to maintain the title and state characteristic of Dorchester house. KIT WRONG MAN. Voting Negroes In Trouble for Assault ing Special Delivery Carrier. Some serious trouble awaits three young negroes. In their gleesomeness, they mistook an employe of the gov ernment for a plain Topeka citizen, and assaulted him. Sunday night Courtney Klliott. a special messenger of ihe Topeka post office, was riding west, on Huntoon street on his bicycle, minding his own business, which at that time was to deliver a special delivery letter in the west part cf the city. At the corner of Lincoln street half a dozen or more young negroes were having a good time by means of profanity, loud talk and insulting passersby. The post ottice messenger, intent on his busi ness, paid no attention to them until they pulled him from his bicycle and pounded him almost into insensibility. They were pounding him when Rich ard Hightower. a colored man who lives in -hat neighborhood, ran up and interfered. The toughs immediate'y attacked Hightower and were pound ing him when Stephen Paskar, a col ered sanitary officer, and H. I. Mon roe, deputy sheriff, arrived on the scene. The city officer and the county officers hastily downed the belliger ents, and arrested three of them V'C Drain. Wesley Anderson and "Muck" White. Elliott the poslofflce ! messenger, was badly bruied but able to go home. He appeared before the county attorney 'his morning, and the th'-ee colored men who had taken his part were on hand to aid him in secur ing a warrant for his assailants. They were charged with assault and battery, and Elliott was then sent to Unfed States Attorney West to file another complaint against the trio on a charge of interfering with a governmen em nloye in the discharge of his duty. This is a serious offense, and the gang is liable to suffer a penalty beyond the jurisdiction of the civil court. From the story told by Elliott and the colored men who came to his as sistance, the assault was- wholly un provoked. DAI.TOX XOT IX IT Fblse Report Aljont Reproduction of Coffeyvllle Rnld.
