Several Cases Tried in the Police
Early Sunday morning Sergt. Lee and Policemen McDonnell and Catts of the first precinct cleaned out a disorderly crowd in a house on C street, near 13 1/2 street northwest, and Richard Hawkins was arrested. When searched at the station house a revolver, a bottle of gin and a set of crap bones were found in his pockets.
"That's a bad combination," explained the officers who arrested him. Hawkins was tried in the Police Court yesterday and Judge Mullowny imposed a fine of $75....
...Frank Washington, colored, was charged with discharging firearms. Washington stated that "some boys threw the stones into the building to test him." and that he fired to attract the attention of the police. Judge Mullowny saw no justification in the evidence and sentenced Washington to pay a fine of $5.
