Man Fined $500

From a strictly pecuniary standpoint
whiskey proved to be a very expensive
luxury to two PortYanders who appeared
before Municipal Judge Rossman Tues
day, on charges involving the use and
sale of liquor. Chafes Schade. pro
prietor of a small machine shop, was
given a $500 fine, the heaviest ever Im

ed of driving an itomoblle while In
toxicated, and Edward J. Brfty. proprie
tor of the Idle Hour poolroom at 146
. Third street, was fined $358 when con
victed of violating the prohibition law.
Schade had been arrested by Patrol
man Stuart, at Twenty-third and Wash
ington streets, January 31, on a charge
of driving 'an automobile wnne intoxi'
cated. Because of the fact that his im
prisonment would throw four other me
chanlcs out of employment, the jail sen
tence, which has usually been imposed
by Judge Rossman on persons convicted
of driving cars while drunk, was omit
ted arid . the heavy fine substituted.
Bray had been arrested January 19.
and his case had been hanging fire ever
since. Officer Abbott of the war emer
gency squad, who arrested BrrfV, testis
tied that he secured only a small glass
: of whiskey as Bray, seeing the officers
enter, . poured the rest of his stock into
the sink.
' ' Remillard Homer, also accused of vio
lating the prohibition law, waj turned
over to the United States authorities.
Homer was arrested Sunday by Officer
Phillips, while leaving a California train
with a suitcase filled with whiskey.
