In Which the Police Cut Quite a
Prominent Figure.
Twenty-four Is the sum total of po
lice arrests on the Fourth of July In
all the precincts. Few, however, were
foi. r.harcrea more serious than drunk
enness and disorderly conduct.
The worst offender was frame bner
wood, a hostler from the central city,
who started out to have a regular old
Arizona sort of a time. He borrowed
a shotgun from Dan Webber, the Penn
avenue butcher and set off down the
street with the avowed Intention of ter
rorizing the alley district. Berore get
ting that far, however, his exuberance
got the best of him.
In front of Gallen's store he leveled
his gun nt Druggist J. E. Harris, who
was standing In his doorway and
caused him to beat a hasty retreat into
the store. Then raising the gun, i.e
fired its contents Into the sign over
Mac's book store, demolishing It.
Some of the buckshot, with which the
gun was loaded, lodged In Arrlgonl
Ferdlnando's porch, where his two
daughters were sitting. He was look
ing around for another target for the
remaining charge In the gun, when
Patrolmen May and Bloch pounced on
him and took possession of him and
the gun.
At the station house he was allowed
to depart on depositing $25 for his ap
pearance at police court in the morning.
Sherwood and his friend Webber came
n round In the eveninnr to arcue the
matter with Desk Sergeant Dciter, and
becoming somewnat ooisterous, were
thrown out, with the Injunction not to
return under penalty of arrest At the
hearing before Alderman Millar, Web
ber again became obstreperous and only
ubsided when he ws fined $2 for con
tempt of court. SlTtrwood was fined $25
and directed to reimburse Mr. Mac for
his sign. The gun was confiscated.
Lyman Melvin, a watchman at
Gould's carriage works, was arrested
for firing a large cannon on Lackawan
na avenue at noon when'the street was
literally Jammed with people. His of
fense cost him $4.
William Lauson was arrested for be
ing drunk and discharging blank cart
ridges at people he encountered on the
street. He paid $2.
Michael Ruddy, of Pine Brook, was
one of a gang that assaulted John Ly
ons and his nephew, Thomas Frehl,
and was held In $300 ball for his ap
pearance at court. Tho assault grew
out of a general fight which took place
on Capouse avenue, near the corner of
Phelps stieet early In the evening.
Ruddy and his friends got the worst
of It and a.fter securing reinforcements
started out to revenge themselves on
Lyons and Frehl. The latter were
drinking In a saloon when they heard
that a gang was outside waiting for
them. They discreetly went out the
back way and headed for home.
Their departure was discovered be
fore they had gone far and chase was
given. At Wyoming avenue they over
took Lyons and gave him a brutal beat
ing. He might have been killed had
not F. L, Schoen. with the aid of a
stout club, caused them to desist. Rud
dy and his crowd then set out to find
Frehl. but encountered tne police and
dispersed. Ruddy was the only one
captured. Warrants are out lot some
of the others.
