Arrested Last Night. It was reported
to Mayor Herman Wise, last evening,
that John Stephen, the well known
saloon man, at Sixth and Ator streets,
bad opened up hi dance hall and that
the same was in full blast. The inaypr
at 6nce called upon President Morton of
the Common Council, and together they
went into the "red light" district to
ascertain for themselves the truth or
faKity of the statement. They found
the dance hall ia operation and pro
tested against it, but the proprietor
claimed he wa not selling liquor in the
same room the dancing was being done
in and o was not violating any of the
ordinances. The liquor adjunct was
palpable enough, however, -to warrant
the mayor in swearing out a warrant
for the arrest of Stephen, under the
state cod, and thia' was done before
Justice Goodman, ami 'service will be
made by Constable 1 1 linger, probably
on Tuesday next, when the issue will be
tried out. V
On Saturday next, December 23, there
will be a sale of burnt-leather and
wood, at Mrs.. Sarah RoV millinery-store.
