Charles We9cott. a grandson of Judge Drake, of the Court of Claims, wits in the Police Court this morning on an information charging him with obstructing the sidewalk and engaging in load and boisterous talking. The charge wax sworn to by Special Policeman Butler Morgan, who wears brass buttons like the regular officers. The alleged offense was charged to have been committed near 17tli and N streets Saturday night. Under an examination conducted by Judge Drake the officer told the court that "the defendant was lookirik at me. I told him to pass and then arrested him." "a cat can look at a king," said Judge Drake, "why cannot this young man look at you?" "I don't know." answered the special M. P. The witness then accused the young man of using bad language, but when further ques tioned he was not ?o sure that the defendant took the name of God in vain. Judge Miller, addressing the officer, said that this was another one of those eases that seldom occur among the regular officers. The court is not going to sit here to settle private quar rels. Persons are not armed with clubs, pistols and badges to go out and settle private dis putes, but to preserve the public peace and en force the law. Until persons have violated some law they are entitled to their freedom. Addressing the special he said: "If you get in an altercation with a person and provoke a quarrel it affords NO OBOUNDS FOB ARBEST. Citizens have rights as well as officers. These cases growing out of petty quarrels arc a source of ever recurring trouble." Judge Drake said that this was the first time that his grandson had ever been accused of us ing bad language, and he desired him to make a statement. From the statements made by the defendant and witnesses it was shown that the officer first addressed them and grabbed ono of their num ber by the shoulder. They had some words and the officer called Wescott a "g d liar." The defendant replied tlint if he was a "g d liar" the officer was a "d fool." Judge Miller again referred to the action of the officer and acquitted the young mau of the charge. A Handsome lilonde in a Fix. SHE IS IMI'BTSONED IN A BLIND ALLEY CLOSED BY AN IKON GATE. Last night, about twenty minutes before 12 o'clock, a crowd of persons collected on 13th street, above the Avenue. They were attracted there by the cries of a young woman, who was imprisoned in a narrow alley. There is an iron grating in front of the alley, which was locked. Policeman Golway was among those attracted by the cries, but even he could not break open the heavy iron gate. He went, however, through a neighboring building and jumped over the back fence. When he arrived in the alley the girl was gone. She had been taken through a house adjoining the alley and let out the front door. The officer did not know who she was. but says she was a handsome blonde, and that some one called licr "Kate." She got on an Avedie car going east, and was soon out of sight. Was it Paul Werner? THE MAN WHO COMMITTED SUICIDE IN MILWAUKEE. Information has been received by the police here that a man who committed suicide in Milwaukee a few d'iys ago is supposed to be Paul Werner, who left this city some days ago, and who, it was charged, took with him $400 belonging to Mr. E. F. Droop, by whom he had been employed. The man who committed suicide was known in Milwaukee as Ilarry Von Sternan. He was a stranger in the city, and from papers found on him it was believed that he was traveling under an assumed name. From his papers it was learned that he had been employed in Baltimore, but inquiries in that city failed to throw any light on the case, probably oil account of the different name used. The case was investigated in Milwaukee by the coroner and the body was interred at public expense. Werner's wife is etill in this city, but she knows nothing concerning her husband'# whereabouts. The Hope and Help Mission. MB. J. C. LEE WANTS THE GOVERNMENT OP THE DI8TIIICT IN NEW HANDS.

There was a large assemblage in the gymna sium of the Columbia Athletic club last Satur day night to witness the semi-monthly exercises, which reflected great credit on the club. Messrs. Moore and Keed gave a very interest ing exhibition of boxing, which was loudly ap plauded. This was followed by a jumping con test. in which Mr. Schellev defeated Messrs. Keed, O'Leary, and de Saussure, with a record of five feet one inch. A sparring contest be tween Messrs. Wills and Van Hook followed and elicited enthusiastic applause. Then came the high kicking, which was won by Mr. Schellev, who kicked the tambourine at eight feet two inches from the floor. The other contestants were Messrs. Keed, Van Hook, and O'Leary. By far the most interesting event of the even ing was the boxing bout between Messrs. Schel lev and Saxton. both men proving themselves proficient in the uso of the gloves. The tug of war between Messrs. Keed, O'Leary, and Muldrow on one side and Messrs. Lewis, Moore, and Wells on the other, in which the former side won, closed the program.
