POLICE COURT NEWS.
The Sunday round up of the police
force brought sixteen parties to the city
jail who wore on trial yesterday morning.
Ono noticeable feature was that a ma
jority of them were in for drunk and it
was very evident that there was a good
deal of liquor sold on Sunday from some
quarter. The beer that a portion of thn
crowd filled up on was bottled.boor , and
the officers are searching for the hole m
the wall through which tbo beverage was
passed. When the docket was called for
trial , John Foley and Frea Kimjsbury
wore arraigned as vags. Kingsbury said
lie was a brakuman on the B. & M. and
Toioy said ho was u Inrd working man.
They wore discharged to go to work or
leave the city. James Taylor and K ,
llyau were arrebtcd by the police for
drunkenness. Both plead not guilty and
had their oases continued. John liiloy ,
when arraigned for being drunk , ad
mitted it , but plead as an extenuating
circumstance that he had just boon dis
charged by a doctor who had boon caring
for him for months for injuries received
by having nine cars pass ever him. Ho
explained that he felt eo good in
cutting around again that he drank
lee much. Ho with another party also
named John Uiloy received the usual
lino. Four parties , D. Riordan , Charles
Seinn , J. Sullivan and P. Shea , were
' found reveling with bottled beer Sunday
nenr the now building of the li.T. Clarke
Drug Co. They received on trial | 3 and
costs each. An old man named Dully
was lined $5 and costs and two other par
ties who wore with him were lined also
for drunkenness. Ono of these was a To-
V > eka man who had staked his pile on the
Topckas in the ball games and lost his
all. Ho drowned his sorrow in the ( low
ing bowl and landed in the cooler.
Ho settled with the olliccrs and departed
nt noon for the land of prohibition.
Itobort McClusky had trouble with
ppccial olllccr at the ball game Saturday
nnd was ejected from thu grounds by the
olliccr and ex-Shoriu" Ensign. He was

cent man.The court thought otherwise
nnil gave him a line of | 5 as a warning
of bettor conduct at the national gamu in
SINKING A WELL.
The B. & M. workmen are sinking
a well in their yards west of

their individual tisu. Jank Hauham ,
of Crete , has the contract for the well
which is twenty-live foot in diameter and
will bo sunk until thu same vein of watur
is reached that supplies the city wull.
'llio latter is not deep and the contractor
expects to roach thu water in thu now
well easily. When completed thu well
will bo used for locomotive work and
presumably will bo also kept as a reserve

Arrival of a liargo Gorilla.
Boston Transcript : The bark White
Cloud , from Africa , brought probably
the largest gorilla ever landed in this
country. Jake , as he is called , is about
live feet in height when standing erect ,
nnd measures seven feet from the end of
ono outstretched hand to the other. He
weighs about 125 pounds , and exhibits
enormous sireugthcompared with which
that of man seems like a child's. Ho ar
rived in a largo box made of planking two
nnd one-half Inches thickand when being
removed front the ship ho toro largo
splinters from the hard wood planks with
as much case as a child would break a
twig. The hair , which is very coarse ;
andfrom two to four inches in length , is
of u greenish-gray color , and on the
back , Tegs , and arms inclines to black.
His shoulders are immense. The ex
pression of face , which is black Is scowl
ing. The eyes are small , sunken in the
head , and tbe lips largo and thin. Jake
was captured on Mingo peak , Gulf of
Guinea , on the west coast of Africa.
The work of transfurring the gorilla
from ship to wagon and from his tempo
rary cage to his exhibition rccept'.clu in a
museum in this city was carefully per
formed to insure the safety of those en
gaged in it.

fingers was injured five times in ono
