The following from the Review, of

of buying subpoenas before county
courts have passed on the claims: "F.
L. Leonard was arrested Friday morn

In the city jail, charged with obtaining

On Monday evening there arrived ia
this place two gentlemen with a trunk
full of notions which they intended to
sell at auction on our streets, but upon
application- to the authorities for a li
cense they were informed that the foe
tor such a privilege is $10 which scared
them out. They went across the bridge
and proceeded to sell their goods, but
owing to the scarcity of buyers the
unction soon came to an. end. We
have no objection whatever to these
gentlemen or to their business, but we
do feel like crawling out.nn the balco
ny of enthusiasm and- sending up a
hurrah for the honorable oity council
of North Rrownsville for their recent
action in raising the license for street
peddlers. The merchant pays his tax
