Toyon Punishment. For two or three
days past tho chief of police has had a
prisoner serving a sentence for some in
fraction of the citj- laws, standing in tho
cold rain on the street with a ball and
chain attached to him. It appears that
the prisoner refuses to work out his line
on the streets, and is therefore placed on
exhibition, which is Hicksning to the
public. It is a privilege that prisoners
ire to work out their hues, and if thev
do not wish to, no power can be vested
in the city to compt-1 them. A prisoner
is sent to jail for a term of days, and not
to work on tho street, or to stand on the
streets, where people can see them and

The Besult. In the police court yes-
terthvy appeared A. Muuson and Henry
Sawmiller on a charge of resisting a
police officer. They had an interpreter
on hand through whom they entered a
plea of "not guiltj." Judge Coffinbury
held them in default of bail to ap
pear to-daj". This trouble arises from
the row in the old Scandivavian house
last Tuesdav morning when Officer Steabb
arrested Victor Johnson for the alleged
cutting of John Brinkman as reported
m full in Tuesday's Astobian. Steabb
had arrested Johnson, whereupon Mnn-
son aud bawumler took him away, when
lie ran, pursued by Ullicer JJeasley, who
finally captured hini. Johnson was
moved to tho hospital, and is badlv hurt;
one bullet penetrated his body at the base
of the spinal column and coming out at
the groin. It is considered impossible
for the unfortunate man to live. Bnnk-
nrian, who had been badly cut was out of
Yestkhdat's Stobm. The wind and
rain that lulled on Christmas nwoke in
greater fury yesterday morning and all
day the storm blew furious from the
south. The wind came in short strong
gusts that played havoc with the few

and ono or two roofs sutiered, but tne

sheltered harbor demonstrated its safety.

the wind blew great guns; the sea came
in in immense green waves, and naviga
tion of all kinds was stopped. Porpoises
in immense Bchools came up in front of
tho city and sportively gamboled the live
long day. As the snort day darkened
into night tho wind whisked around to the
southwest and roared, at every crevice.
At midnight the storm moderated, and
about half past two this morning the
parting clouds gave promise of a nno day.
