"Thanks very much." said Charles
Cullen as Police Captain Moore turned
over to him 11 quarts of whisky, ISO
bottles of beer and 30 bottles of dande
lion wine, pursuant to a written order
from Circuit .Judge Catena yesterday.
"Oh. don't mention it, sir," was the
polite response of the officer as he
turned to a patrolman nearby. "Now
arrest that msyi for the unlawful pos
session of liquor." The latter decree
was In compliance with an order from
the office of District Attorney Evans
Cullen was placed in the city Jail but
released, half an hour later on his own
recognisance.
Cullen's quandary was an unusual
ne. Not long; ago, Patrolman Abbott
raided Cullen's home at 634 Wygant
street and confiscated the liquor as well
as lis empty beer bottles. A cnarge
of maintaining; a nuisance by the sale
of intoxicating liquor was filed agains
Cullen and he was tried in the munici
pal court, found guilty and fined ITS.
Case Eleeted From Coart.
On appeal to the circuit court, the
ease came before Presiding Judge Ga
tens yesterday. No testimony was pro
duced showing; that Cullen had sold
any liquor and the charge, thus unsup
ported, was thrown out of court by
Judge Catens with but feeble protest
from Deputy District Attorney Mowry.
As the liquor which had been confis
cated was in the possession of the po
lice. Attorney T. G. Ryan, representing
Cullen. demanded its return.
Taking the stand that the liquor had
been confiscated illegally. Judge Uatens
willingly signed an order for the re
lease of the liquor. As Cullen sped from
the courtroom with the order, hired i
truck and started for the police head
quarters, Mowry grabbed a telephone in
the Judge's chambers.

"There goes the district attorney's of
ftce. coercing the police and instruct
Ing them to disregard the court's or
der," yelled Ryan to Judge Gatens in I
tone of voice which brought many spec
tators into the courtroom from distant
offices in the courthouse. When be fin
ished protesting the action as an out
rage and perversion of Justice, Mowry
returned.
"If you notified the chief to disregard
my order. I'll have you jailed for con
tempt of court." Judge Gatens told
Mowry.
The deputy district attorney smiled.
"I didn't tell them anything like that.
but I told Captain Moore to turn over
the liquor to Cullen and that after
ha started away with It to arrest him
for unlawful possession. If the court
will remember. Patrolman Abbott testi
fied, uncontradicted, that Cullen had
told him he bought the liquor six
months ago. long after the prohibi
tion law was la effect.
"Well, that's different." said the
Judge. "I have no Jurisdiction over the
matter after my order is obeyed."
After his client was rearrested, "Ryan
sought unavailiagly to have Judge
Gatens cite Mowry for contempt of
court, but the jurist held that no con
tempt had been committed. If the dis
trict attorney's office fails to convict
Cullen of having the liquor unlawfully
in his possession Ryan threatens suit
against District Attorney Kvans for
false arrest.
