Get Him Release
John O'Connor, laborer, was arrested
Thursday evening for being drunk. Ho
was brought beforo Judge Altstadt, and
nfter pleading guilty was asked by the
court as to the truth of his representing
himself as a working man. In answer
to the query O'Connor held forth a pair
of hands, the palms of which wtto Inch
deep In callouses. At this juncture Tom
O'Connor, clerk of the court, passed the
Judge's seat and heard the following re
mark: "Your der .first O'Connor I haff
eyer met who vas guilty of doing any
work, f dlssharge you-"
Both O'Connors tty tho court -room in
great haste and from the noise, emanat
ing from the clerk's office, one member
of the family was making up for tho
moments wasted by long departed 'ancestors.
Has Fifteen Children, but
No Naturalization Papers
"I've been In this town for thirty years
and I've raised a family of fifteen chil
dren, and I ought to be allowed to vote.H
roared a fellow In the election cotnmts-
loner's offico whh he wss dented the
privilege of registering because he could
not produce his naturalization papers.
"You've 'raised fifteen ehlMr.nr e.t,
Deputy Election Commissioner Henry
"Yes, sir, fifteen children and here you
fellows are trying to keep me from regis
tering and from voting."
OsU-om admitted that a man who had
dono that muoh for the population of
tho United States was patriotic even If
he could not show naturalisation papers.
A careful survey of the election com
missioner law revealed no m-nvtln tnr
qualifying for registration by showing
a large ramliy. Bo Ostrom shook his
head and was sorry. The fellow went
out a little angry, declaring he would
find his naturalisation papers of he had
to dig to the bottom of the deeptit trunk
In the house.
Scarcely had he disappeared from the
door when In burst a huge colored man.
"Whan Is dat man wld de automobile
flat was comln' after me?" he roared.
"What are you talking about?" asked
one of the clerks.
"Well. I met a man yesterdah," stormed
the colored cent, "that said he'd be
around this morning and take me up
hcah to the 6ourt home to register me. 1
watted and waited at home and he never
showed up wld dat machlno, and so I
had to walk hcah."
Again the clerks were sorry, but they
registered htm, for If he failed In his
hopes of being hauled to the poll by
a Rood saint woh desired him to register,
ho at least had the advantage of requir
ing no naturalisation papers.
