Sedition Charges to Be Filed
Against Vagrants and Places
Encouraging Their. Failure
to Go to Work.
WOMAN KILLED WHEN HIT
BY AN AUTO
Charges of sedition will be filed
"v against future vagrants in police
court, Judge Madden announced
- Wednesday. Twenty alleged vagrants
were warned that they must either
work or go to jail. The text of the
law provides that any man physi
. ii, i . .
cany aDie toworK, ana not engaged in
any useful occupation, who will refuse
x employment or remaia habitually idle
when employment is obtainable is
guilty of sedition." The penalty pro
vided is a hne ot $1U.U00, or lmpison-
- ment not to exceed a) years.
The accused men were loitering
around pool halls, police testified. A
further provision of the law would
cause the conviction of anyone abet
ting an idler. Action against pool
hall proprietors probably will result
in case of conviction of men found
idle in their places.
