FIGHT STARTS EARLY M THE GAME
Officer Cooke Gets a Black Eye and
Two of the Disturbers Are
The Enterprise of Friday morning
told the story of an assault on the
police by a quartet of noisy fellows
who had Imbibed more strong drink
than was good for them. The second
chapter In the history of the case was
made In Recorder Stlpp's court Friday
Chas. Burns, Jr., Chas. Vaughn, one
Hughes and a party whose name is nn
known created a disturbance at mid
night Thursday, on Main" street cor
ner of Seventh. Offlcera Green and
Cooke warned them In the matter and
urged them to go home. Instead a
fight was started which resulted in
Officer Cooke receiving a black eye
and Officer Green a few thumps on
the back " and - ribs. - In - the melee
Burns was hit several severe blows
and the one whose name la not known
was somewhat bruised.
Friday the police swore to warranta
charging the defendants with creating
a disturbance and resisting an officer.
Burns and Vaughn were arraigned In
court and after a trial Burns waa fined
120 for resisting an officer and S10
for disorderly conduct; Vaughn was
fined $10 for resisting an officer and
$5 for disorderly conduct.
At the trial . Offlcel Green awore
that the young men started the row,
that they were given warning not to
sing, that the singing was started at
three different places, and that all
four parties aided one another In an
effort to put tha offlcera out of busi
ness . Officer Cooke corroborated the
story of Green and his swollen eye
wss mute evidence of the fact thst
there had, been, fighting. Testimony
showed that the young men had been
drinking but that they wera not what
mlfcht be termed drunk.
Bams and Vanghn did not agree as
to what the polio had said, but rather
were Inclined to stsnd on the ground
that they were defending themselves
In doing as they had a right to do-s-especially
when once at home. C. E.
Ramsby, L. Ruconlch and Tbeo. Miller
were called as witnesses but only
knew as to the young men's condition
an hour or so prior to the disturbance.
Recorder Stlpp did not seem to take
much stock In the effort of the de
fendants to smooth over or gloss over
the defense and made It cost the
young men $30 and $15 respectively.
They came forward and liquidated tne
fines. Each wss given a Jail sentence
of 25 days, Jail sentence to be sus
pended during good behavior In case
the fines were paid promptly.
The police report that Burns, wh?
seems to have been the ringleader In
the scrap. Is well behaved when sober
but. that when drinking he Is Inclined
to make trouble. The further story
Is afloat that the young men sent
word to the police earlier In the even
ing that they would get. the police
later the same night. Ind (rations
point to the fact, the police think, that
a scrsp was prepared for by the young
men, or at least by one or two or
Officers Green and Cooke did not
take the young men to Jail Thursday
night, as they would have been Justi
fied tn doing, and saved them that in
dignity. Vaughn swore that Mrs.
Burns csme to the door during the
trouble and tried to get the young men
to come Into the house. After the
fight the police permitted the young
men to go home on condition that
they would do ao
Burns, Jr., lives In the house to tha
rear of the Leavltt store and the other
young men are said to be boarders.
Several years ago Burns was in
trouble with the police and waa given
a severe sentence, part of which was
