E. Scaluer. Yandell, in testifying against the wanderers, stated that the two "hoboes" had removed a sign in the park which forbids trespass- ing cr loafing by vagrants about the city's greenery- When asked if this was the case by Schluer, both vagrants denied removing the sign. Schluer, in giving each of the prisoners a six months' suspended sentence, stated that he was dis- posed to be lenient as he would as soon taka the word of the hoboes as he would of Yandell. The two weary ones were seen rapidly departing from town short- ly before noon, possibly to seek rest in grain fields -where no special of- ficers would interfere.
