BrnK.Aug. 28. -If C. H. Oliver doea^not Und himself comfortably cared for iu^tlie penitentiary uftcr the next term of^the district court ho will indeed have oc^^casion to congratulate himself on hit^gootl furiune, for he got himself into an^exceedingly bad predicament this nfter-^lioon. Oliver thought lie saw an I pi or-^utility to improve his tliianei il MtMitt^a little hy d. i:ig a J )!^ m the pocket p ek^^ing lino and made tile^ attempt, hut del it^ill so but giingu manner that about half a^dnz^u persons witnessed bis work and^caused bis arrest.
Witha number of other men Oliver was^in the l larendon and enjoyed the^hospitality of an elderly gentleman^named J. M. Jones, who wus somewhat^under the inllueiice of liquor. 1 he men^were all seated at the table, and Mr.^Jones, ticiug drowsy, allowed his head to^drop on hi* breast and fell into a slight^dca.^. Oliver aaw this und without a^moment's delay deliberately rcuehod^across and attempted to insert his hands^into the old gentleman's vest pockets.^It happened tiiat Mr. Jones was not^asleep and he grahbed Oliver's hand^with the remark, ^how aro you^^ und^pushed the h ind away. Iu about a min^^ute Oliver aguiti reached over and tnis^tun ; got one of bis hands in the top^pocket of Mr. Jones' vest and pulled out^a t^ hill and u key, both ot which dropped^to the floor.
DanHurley, manager of the saloon,^was one of tuose who witnessed the at-^lair and walked toward Oliver. When^the latter sua* lulu come he placed his^foot on the money and then picked it up^Mr. Harlcy onhredhimto give up tin^money, hut O iver refused and snow e.I^tight. After luakinc scverul demands^for the mi u^ y and Oliver still re I using^to surrender it, Mr. ilarley walked tow^^ard the bar lo g i u p -t.-nailer that he^keeps there, Willi the intention of seeing^whetner In' could not induce Oliver to^comply with his demands. Evidently^surmising what was coming, Oliver^called out that he would give^him the inoiny, and held out his^hand. Hy this time Mr. Jones awoke, and^as Mr. Harlcy caught Oliver by the wrist^Mr. Junes forced his hand open und took^the money. Mr. Harlcy then released^Oliver and appurcntly allowed the matter^to did, but instead inn. lied Officer Wulah^of wliut had occurred. The ( 111. it arrested^O iver ai.d took him to tlie county jail^und preferred u charge of rolihery fiom^the person against him.
