It has All come to pass As the result of an arrest made saturday. The residence that was the cause of complaint is presided Over by Lekoy Williams.

He was wholly in the hands of his friends and it was through no wish of his that his House came to have the Rpu action for a loud and unseemly Quot noises at night. Chief mince Noyer said that quiet was All that he was after and lie would withdraw the charge if the defendant would get rid of his noisy guests and permit no disturbance on any occasion of course it was under stood the Man arrested was to pay the costs. The defendant readily agreed. Since through their indiscretions he had been subjected to the indignity of an arrest he was in a position to make sweeping demands of his erstwhile guests Ami there was grim determination Oil his face As lie promised that henceforth canal Street would a a a a quiet place. So it was settled the defendant planked Down the costs a trifle Over two dollars and withdrew thanking the chief of police for exercising so much clemency.
