BEFORE THE PEOPLE'S BAR
Mystery of Who Pinched Lena's Est ii
JUDGE DISMISSES THE N0TAILE CASE
Breaks Into Fervent Flow of Oratory
by Loalae Kltehea Plradlas:
Innocence to Dls-
' Having taken a day eff Thursday, Judge
Crawford, proprietor and manager of the
trouble department of the people's bar,
was In fine mettle for the knotty problems
which were to come when ho resumed his
duties Friday morning. And It was well
for h!m that he had secured the day of
recuperation, for not long after he had
set himself down behind the "bench'' the
familiar name of Louise Kitchen floated
out uon the air and the bustling young
African belle entered the room . from the
bull pen, announcing In sonorous tones
that "she was not guilty" even before she
was within speaking distance of the Judge.
"Oh, this is the case of the hat, lbn't It?"
his honor reflected.
Haw could he or any one forget the
famous controversy, "Who pinched Lena's
hat, she or one of the others?"
Leona Harris, Lena Banks and Leona's
witness stepped forward and game was
called.. The witness testified that Miss
Kitchen had tried to sell her the hat and
had then sold U to Miss Harris. Her words
were lnterspered with sniffs and sneers
from the woman she was accusing, but
officers stood near to stamp out any serious
It was then up to Louise. This was the
fourth time she had come through the
door from the bull pen to tell what she
didn't know and didn't want to know about
"dat meaaly hat" Drawing a long breath
she launched out:
"Why, your honoh, I cross my haht and

hope to die, but I never stole no hat I
never seen no hat. I don't know where
that woman live at an" I couldn't find her
house to steal anything."
Tears were getting Into her voice. She
was getting desperate, as three to one. she
was outnumbered In her fight for freedom.
She then began on a long discourse, a reg
ular diatribe on the subject of millinery
and theft. She reviewed her movements
on the fatal day in question to prove her
actions were those of a person Innocent of
having stolen a hat and fain wouldhave
spoken further had not the court cut her
and the case short with the one word:
The theft of Lena's hat will have to go
unavenged and unsolved as the years gilds
by. But next time Lena will know better
than to lend her headgear to her friends.
Jim Burns and Bert McCoy, late of the
dump crew at the Lane cut-off, sent in
word to the Judge that they had changed
their minds about whether or not they were
drunk the night before, as charged by the
police, after they had pleaded not guilty
and been sent back to the pen to wait an
"So you think you are guilty, now, do
"Yes, your honor."
"Five and costs."
Charles Johnson couldn't secure any dis
position of his case wun he was haled
before the court He was found hv n
officer Thursday night with a gunny sack
and a hatchet headed south. To the ordi
nary man that would have meant nothing,
but to an experienced policeman, especially
one acquainted with the past of Charles
Johnson, it meant that someone was going
to attack the plumbing In vacant housea
Johnson will be heard later.
"Tour honor, this is all a mistake. I only
came In for lodging last night," Jim Burns,
charged with being drunk, tried to explain
to the court. What the prisoner said was
quite true, but he was drunk enough to be
booked with those coming In In the regu
lar way. He slept through the night un
aware that he was under arrest.
