TWO HORSES ANO A COW AS FEE Row the Legal Lights in Police Cir cles Bustle for Business the Days of Poor Pick ing. These be times of poor picking for the attorneys who practice in police court. Few of the evil-doers or transgressors of the city laws get into jail with suffi cient resources nowadays to adequately pay for counsel, and as a repult there are many stories of unique methods adopted by the lawyers to equalize the matter of fees. Of recent days the competition, be cause of the emaciated purses has in creased to points far beyond the ordinary professional limits and it's getting so that a lawyer in police court will take about anything from a pawn ticket up in lieu of regular fees. The other day a girl and her friend were up on charges of violating statutes provided for the welfare of the public. The best the pair could do was the rak ing together of $3.60. which was offered to one attorney and refused. Revolvers and Potatoes. Another lawyer got into the case for $2.50, the sum having dwindled during the negotiations to that amount. Of course the defendants were found guilty. Another young attorney is prosecuting a search for two revolvers which were taken away from his client at the time of arrest and which constituted the en tire capital of the prisone'. The revolvers haven't been found as yet and the lawyer is out that much as a fee. The same attorney Is carrying around in his pocket a small sample of a lot of Irish potatoes which had been promised him as a fee, but which have not yct materialized, owing to the fact that the client has decamped. This morning the attorney who re fused the $3.60 fee made a dicker with two brothers who are in jail and in trouble for the transfer of two horses and a cow as part payment for a fee for defending the pair in assault and battery and disturbance cases. Brother attorneys are now casting looks of envy on the,man who was'able to talk himself into the ownership of a whole team of horses and a winter's supply of milk. Still the competition is on and the legal lights are living even on milk and potato diets. HE HAD COLD [E[T CHARLES VICTOR PLEADS FOR RE LEASE OF ALLEGED ROBBER. PAYS COSTS FOR DISCHARGE After Being Robbed Victim Experi ences Change of Heart and Does Good Samaritan Act ior Man He Accused. Yesterday afternoon Charles Victor rushed up to Patrolman Laughrin with a wild and wooly story of how he had been robbed in the Lake View saloon at Silver and Main streets. A man, said the victim, had put his hand in Victor's pocket and extracted $2.50 in silver. Victor accompanied the officer to the saloon and pointed out P. J. Murphy as the robber. Murphy was arrested and kept in jail until today. Last night there were a score of men taking turns trying to talk Murphy out of jail, but the orders were to keel) him until a sufiicient bond was pro duced. Victor came to the station himself to try to get the man he accused of rob bery out of jail and left $10 for safe keeping. Pleading for Murphy's Liberty. This morning Victor appeared and pleaded with Judge Boyle to dismiss the case on the ground that he didn't want to see Murphy sent to jail under sentence. Victor finally succeeded after agreeing to pay the costs incurred In the arrest of Murphy and which amoutned to $4. Murphy was released and the two men went off together as if they had been warm friends during a life time. The only other cause before Judge Boyle this morning was that of Patrick Mullen, the saloonkeeper at No. B01 North Main street. Mullen's arrest was brought about by L. Goldstein, a tailor, who complained that music and noises In the saloon kept him awake in his rooms adjoining the saloon. This morning Mullen stated that there was no noise after midnight, as the sa loon closed at that time, but he was in structed to enter a plea of not guilty after which his trial was set for next Tuesday afternoon.
