For Chief of Police

Capt. J. C. ARNOLD announces in to-day's paper for re-election to the office of chief of police.  Mr. ARNOLD is a man whom the Times-Herald can conscientiously commend.  He is an able, a faithful and an efficient officer.  Having served the city in some capacity as peace officer during the past sixteen years, being first elected to his present position in 1881, he is well known and justly popular.  The large majority he received at the polls at the last election over an able opponent was a merited tribute to his worth as an officer and his popularity as a citizen.  he has lost none of that confidence and esteem during his present term, which is drawing to a close and which he asks to be extended.

A Colored Minister Gets Damages

New York, March 1 --A decision was handed down to-day by Judge BEACH in the supreme court, part three sustaining a verdict recently rendered by a jury in favor of Rev. Albert P. MILLER, the colored clergyman of New Haven, Conn., who, with his family refused stateroom accommodation in the steamer Drew of the People's line to Albany.  Judge BEACH, in his opinion says: the verdict must represent what the jury found to be a suitable compensation to the plaintiff for violation of a legal right and for injury done to his feelings.  Although a verdict of $500 seems to be more than adequate for the plaintiff's compensation, it cannot, in my opinion be held excessive, creating the belief that the jury was mislead by passion, prejudice or ignorance.

He then quoted from similar cases in other states, there being no precedent in this state where juries have awarded from one hundred to one thousand dollars in similar cases.


A Woman in the Case

Louisville, KY., March 1 -- There had been a long standing ill feeling between KINCAID and TAULBEE without any definite cause being generally known.  This was aggravated two years ago by KINCAID'S sending the Louisville Times, for which he was a correspondent an account of unbecoming conduct between TAULBEE and a female clerk in the patent office.

The Sprinter Convinces the Court That He is All "O.K."

Edward CUMMINGS, alias Teddy ECKLAND, alias O'BRIEN, arrested Thursday evening on the vagrancy charge had his trial yesterday before Judge BROWN of the city court.  Dick FLANIGAN and others testified that CUMMINGS was not a vag; that he was and is a sprinter.  A number of women of the town were introduced as witnesses by the state and the facts adduced in the case were not at all complimentary to the prisoner.  The judge decided however, that the charge had not been sustained by the evidence and the sprinter was given his liberty.

Other suspicious characters have been ordered to jump the town and several of them have promised to obey the mandate.



His Old Stamping Ground

Col. D. A. WILLIAMS, prosecuting attorney, takes a deep interest in the movements of the crusaders at Spicardsville, Lathrop, Trenton and other towns in northern Missouri.  That country was the colonel's stamping ground in his boyhood.  His father founded a town near Spicardsville in Grundy county many years ago, before the railroads spread new work of rails over the country.  The town boomed and became a good sized hamlet and a will-known trading point.  But the railroad fever struck the country.  A line was built to the north of the prosperous village several miles, and it went down like a rocket.  In those days there were live boys in the country district.  They drank whiskey, run horses, were inveterable gamblers and when they visited a town it was for the purpose of running it.  Now all is changed.  In all country districts saloons are prohibited by the local option law.  That is they were until a very recent date when a judge decided that the local option law was null and void in Grundy county owing to some oversight in giving the proper notice of the election.  The county court however, refused to grant dramshop license and club houses and "joints" soon began to flourish.  The ladies of the county charged that the officers winked at this lawlessness and made an attack on the saloons in many places, completely demolishing the same.  They were arrested and fined and the Colonel, as well as other Missourians in Dallas, are patiently awaiting new developments in this latest mode of warfare inaugurated by the women of Northern Missouri against an enemy which they regard as the greatest curse ever visited upon humanity.
