water from the fire hydrants. In some
Instances , the openings to these hydrants

charged and an equal number ot peace
disturbers and intemperate individuals
wore disdosod of by being lined from | 5
to 97 and costs. A largo crowd pressed
kgalnst tbo railing to catch the testimony
j tbt OM tit Charlta Schornbcrg ,
charged with sodomy. The spectators I
pressed their faces eagerly against the '
wire screening in their anxiety to catch
every word of the colored boy , Williams ,
as ho related the circumstances to ( ho
court. The boy's evidence was contra
dictory as to bis ago and as to time , but
on the main points ho could not bo
shaken. The details were nauseating in
the extreme. At noon the court ad
journed until 2 o'clock when the case was
continued until to-day. John Connolly
a eon of "Whisky Jack , " who was one of
the number of boys concerned in the case ,
was charged simply with being disorderly
and was sent to jail for thirty days.
