Mas given his freedom ' this morning on a promise t leave town, but before he had gotten two 'hundred yards from the city building j he was re-arrested and brought back , to the city court. After Willio had ! left the court room Sergeant McManus produced some hose-couplers found on i Wambaugh, which, it was thought he had stolen. Judge Converse decided then it would be better to punish him than to give him a chance to leave the city. When charged with stealing the hitching straps Wambaugh entered a strenuous denial and told the court ! that if Officer Lawler accused him of j such a thing he was a liar. "You're ' a liar and you know you are. I don't j care if you have brass buttons on your clothes, and wear a badge," veiled the thoroughly enraged Wambaugh as he , turned on Lawler and shook his fit at ( him. ; I Wambaugh also denied the prof-.ecut-: or's statement that it was about the j tenth time that he had been arraigned ( in the city court on a charge of petit ' larceny. Wambaugh then said that if he was given a chance he would leave town and never again return. Whf.n arrested after leaving the city building Wambaugh was headed direct for the railroad. On his return to the city court. Judge Converse bound him over to the circuit court under $2't bond. Wambautrh's adventures of the day did not end with his second appe?r- ; sne in the city court. Afrer being : bound over to the circuit court, he went to the county jait for an hour , and was then called before Judge Fox. j Wambaugh"s story wa3 heard and then he was given his liberty.
