The rapidly shift- ing sands filled in tha space between boat and shore and added 193 acres to the citj s area. To- this land Caritaii Btreeter laid claim, and in the next quarter of a century batles by the hnu dreds were; fought in an effort to ens' him On one occasion 500 police besiege! Streelerviile.

H. W. Estiom of Bellevue was fined and costs or two mouths in de- fault for being intoxicated in a public place. William Oodak received the same penalty for a Hke offence. Reorge Kachoriaski, of Hilicrest, was fined and costs or two months for allowing drunkenness .on prem- ises whicn-he occupied.
