Attorney Byron Parker is going to test the "one day vagrant" ruling in the supreme court! The muncipal rulings recognize two classes of vagrants the "one day vag" and the "ten day vag." Ini the former case it is enough for a police officer to come into court and denounce a man as a vagrant. Then the vagrant, despite the constitution, has to prove that he is not guilty. In the case of a ten day vag," the policeman must come into court and swear that he has had the culprit un der investigation for ten days, and has seen him loitering, without visible means of support. Conviction in such case .means a heavier sentence. The session of the city trustees held last evening proved a pretty lively af fair, for the discussion relative to the bonding feature of licenses to soft drink establishments grew rather per sonal before the session closed.

There was discussion relative to the revision of city licenses to all classes of business, and while no decision has yet been reached, it is believed that at the next meeting of the board a new license ordinance will be adopted. During the meeting last evening Pro fessor Hunting, W. P. Harrington and Rev. Murgotten appeared before the board and urged more direct enforce ment of the dry law requirements by the local officers through the efforts of the city board. The discussion became pretty lively and several of the trustees took exceptions to what they copsider ed reflections on their endeavors to en force the law, even the trustees them selves exchanging words on what they had done relative to enforcements. Other matters were taken up and the city takes up $250 of the burden on the camp ground bungalow. The rebate of widows taxes was also discussed and this will be a part of the legal end of the board to consider. The session was one of the liveliest held in some time, and the unusual in terest shown by the people is what the trustees are seeking. They ask at tendance and complaints when and where necessary.
