Beer Lugger in Notorious Savaresy Place the Assailant. For some reason the authorities see fit to permit the notorious Savarsey dive to disgrace the south side of the city. Ever since its opening it has been one of the worst places ever licensed by any municipality and its name is synonymous of everything usually considered as low and de graded. Repeatedly its proprietor and attaches have been in court to answer to charges more or less ser ions and the city has almost times innumerable been pit to the expense of prosecuting cases having their ori gin in the joint. Once thedcity saw tfi to revoke Say aresy's license and- during the time the revocation was in force the moral uo pher. otf .that $!t of-torn W I-' license, presumably on promise of future good behavior and regard for the laws of decency. A mistake seems to have been made, whatever the cause that prompted the authorities to relent, for "Savaresy's" is again the lawless and disreputable place of yore and nightly is the scene of dis graceful orgies and law breakings. Yesterday one of its hangerson, ,a beer lugger known as S. Bloom, was arraigned in police courb for a'brutal, as well as cowardly and utterly un provoked assault on George York, a young man who was foolish and reck less enough to wander into the dive last Sunday. According to the state ment of witnesses York was guilty of no offense other than one against his self-respect in venturing beyond, the doors of the joint. It was prob ably because he failed tb join in the peculiar class of amusement practic ed there that he gave ,offense , to Bloom or possibly some one in au thority' above him. At all events Bloom struck him on the head with a beer bottle, inflicting a frightful wound over the left eye. Bloom was arrested and when ar raigned on the charge of assault wise ly pleaded guilty, rather.than take chances on the outcome of a trial. The court imposed a fine of $50, which Bloom paid and was discharged and is again engaged. in the exalted occupation of carrying drinks to shameless women and such men as have, the hardihood to risk their lives and purses by frequenting the hole. Probably also he has bottles conven iently placed for use in the same manner as the one he used on York. RED LODGE TRIUMPHED. Won Sunday's Ball Game From Bill ings, Hands Down.
