K l I I RYAN WON'T PROSECUTE DEPITT DISTRICT ATTORNEY DROPS ; CASE AGAIXST POLICE. Irishman Never Goea to Court with an Assault - and - Battery Cbargre, Saya Aggrieved Official. "An Irishman never goes Into court m-lth an assault-and-battery charge." Quoting this spirited Celtic adage yes terday morning. Deputy District Attor ney Ryan dismissed his intention to prosecute Chief of Police John Clark and Police Sergeant Sherwood on charges preferred by himself. In a lively scrimmage between Ser geant Sherwood and Deputy Ryan, staged in the private office of Chief 'lark late Friday afternoon, the Deputy IDlstrict Attorney was slightly battered. His collar was torn and his glasses broken. He declared that Chief Clark also attacked him, while the latter pro tested that he was attempting to in tervene. The quarrel arose over the issuance of complaints in two liquor cases, where Deputy Ryan maintained the police had an insufflency of evidence to secure convictions. Charges were bandied in the triangular discussion, and the Deputy District Attorney was ordered' from Chief Clark's office, the latter asserting that Ryan was using profane language. , "If the chief's charges wre true, though I deny them, it was his duty to arrest me, rather than to assault me," said Deputy Ryan yesterday. "As for Sergeant Sherwood. I had just finished defending him and his squad in the Rugliesa liquor case,' when defamatory statements were made against them. But I've slept on the matter and it shan't go to court." With the heat of argument forgot ten. Chief Clark smilingly discussed the affray. "Why should there be a case?" he queried. "Ther wasn't any fight." STREET PLAN ADVANCED EXTENSION OK INTERSTATE AVE NUE FAVORED AT MEETING. Project Involve Three Separate Un dertakings, and Cost Would Be Spread Over OOOO Lots. The movement started some time ago for the extension of Interstate avenue, formerly Patton avenue and Maryland avenue, is making strong headway, ac cording to those backing the plan. At a series of meetings last week property owners in three districts went on rec ord as favoring the project. The plan involves three separate ex tension improvements. The principal one is from Fremont street to Morris and Delay streets, connecting Inter state avenue from its present southern end to Delay street at a 4 per cent grade. The second extension Involves the elimination of a jog by cutting diagonally through the block between Prescott and Skidmore streets. The third involves elimination of another Jog at the northern end of the street. Tha ultimate plan is to extend In terstate avenue northward from its present end to the south approach to the Interstate bridge. It is figured that such a. connection will make this route the most direct and ahortest be tween Broadway bridge and Interstate bridge. It is proposed to make the extension by assessing the cost of about $30,000 in a district including about 6000 lots. Funds Lacking:, School Closes. SPOKANE, 'Wash., Feb. 17.

"Work ing hard and expect to stage a dandy show," is the latest report on the fac ulty minstrel show to be staged next Thursday and Friday. Professor An dreas Gottell is director. "Due to un usually good voices, stunts, a fine sup porting orchestra of 10 pieces and lot of pep in training, the performanc should be fine." he concluded.
