POLICEMEN AND
FIREMEN WERE
BUSY IN AUGUST
Number of Arrests 655, an Jn-1
crease of Eighty Over the
• Preceding Month.
GREAT DECREASE IN FINES
Twenty-four Alarms, Only One
of Which Was False Turned
Into Fire Department.
Six hundred and fifty-five arrests
were made by the local police depart
meut during the month of August, ac
cording to the report of Joe Braden,
clerk of the corporation court. The rec
ord for the month shows an increase of
80 arrests over the previous month. The
amount of fines, however, shows a de
crease of $ll3, the total for August be
ing $3408 as compared with $3521 for
July.
The report in detail as compiled by
Clerk Biaden is as follows: Total cases,
655; fines imposed, $2408; transferred
to the county court, 18; transferred to
the juvenile court, 14; cases appealed,
12; disturbances of the peace, 127; as
sault, 41; affrays, 81; abusive language
cases, 20; nuisances. 20; drunks, 107;
vagrancy, 117; thefts, 9; concealed
weapons, 2; miscellaneous, 121; speed
ing automobiles, 14.
Firemen Make 24 Runs.
Despite the fact that August has in
variably held the record for years as a
month of few fires, the present month
has experienced 24 runs during the last
31 days, according to the record on file
in the office of the central fire alarm
station.
While there is an increase in the
number for the month, the damage by
fire is very slight, the majority of fire
alarms having resulted in good work
on the part of the department and re
sulting in small loss from this source.
The causes as shown in the record are
given as chimney, coals from a furnace,
cigarette, coqk stove, oil stove and un
known.
Only One False Alarm.
But one false alarm of fire’was turn
ed in during the period, this being
when, to quote the words as recorded
by Fire Alarm Operator Lee, “kids
‘pulled’ the box and then ‘pulled’ their
freight.”
BARKsNG OF DOG

dog barking as though at someone in
an alley running off Monterey street
at 3 o’clock this morning. He approach
ed the place and took a position in the
dark. He had not long to wait, for in
a few seconds he was surprised to see
five young men leap over a fence. A
chase followed in which the men jump
ed three other fences, three managing
to escape when they separated. Two
were epught and proved to be Rodri
guez nnd Gibson. They gave no account
of their actions, except to say that they
heard someone say “run” and they
lost no time in “beating” it for all
they were worth.

board of health, together with Acting

the lakes, which he will submit to the

more than two hours. A minute inspec

Both Lakes Need Attention.
According to Dr. Barnitz. both places
are In need of attention and he will rec

The officials found at the West End
lake that the water lying just south of
the main body was very low and in a
stagnant condition, which was deemed
very unsanitary. The inlet to the north
west of the lake was also found badly
in need of attention. The low water in
the Elmendorf lake at Lake View is
also said to be not the best for the
health of the community.
Commissioners to Assist.

sanitation committee of the council, an
nounces that not over 200 feet of the
Elmendorf lake is within the city lim
its. He will aet in conjunction with
Acting Mayor Richter in inducing the
county commissioners to assist in the
work at this lake.
BANK QUESTION
FINALLY SETTLED
Austin. Tex.. Aug. 31. —The question
as to whether a new state bank organ
ized since the banking law went into
effect can do business prior to January
1, 1910. was decided today by the at
torney general, when he held that such
banks can do business provided they
take out a certificate of authority un
der the new law, and write across the
certificate the plan of security adopted
and also that deposits are secured on
January 1. 1910. This settles the ques
tion which has been disturbing the
bank department for some time. Com
missioner Love was furnished with this
ruling by General Davidson.
