POLICE COURT NEWS
Busy Time in Judge Dow's Court on Several Days of This Week.
On Monday Andrew Peters, a blacksmith of Lismore, was arrested and arraigned
before Judge Dow on charge of assault and battery. He plead guilty and paid
a fine of $5 and costs of $9.15.
Frank Koessler, the complainant in the case against Peters, was arrested on
Tuesday on a charge of larceny. When first arraigned he plead not guilty,
but a few hours later he changed his plea to guilty and was given 30 days in
the county jail. It appears that Koessler stole some from the blacksmith
Peters, who, when he found it out, administered corporal punishment to the
culprit, the latter had Peters arrested. Koessler's arrest on charge of
stealing followed, and he is now boarding with the county for thirty days.
On Tuesday morning Albert Zollmer and N.J. Bank of Adrian, were given a
preliminary examination before Judge Dow and held to the grand jury in the
sum of $500 each. They are charged with gambling. C.M. Crandal appeared for
the state and G.W. Wilson for the defendants.
Ex-Policeman Henry Twitchell was arrested last Thursday evening by Sheriff
Fauskee on a charge of drunk and disorderly. He demanded immediate hearing,
plead guilty, and paid a fine of $10 and costs. After leaving the court room
he assaulted the sheriff. He was again arrested and was arriagned before
Judge Dow on Friday morning and his hearing set for June 4th. This escapade
of the ex-policeman has caused much comment.

band of twenty-two pieces which is one of the leading organizations of the
kind in our sister state. This band with the Windom band of eighteen pieces
and the Sibley, Iowa band of fifteen pieces will form a leading feature in

blood and set your feet a dancing.
The secretary of the Rock Rapids band writes as follows regarding that
The Rock Rapids City Band has been under the instruction of the veteran Band
Master, Prof. C. Tonolli, for the past four years. This band has been
praised very highly by all who have heard it and the citizens of Rock Rapids
feel very proud that they have such a band. The individual members own their
instruments and uniforms and they have a full set of silver instruments,
manufactured by C.G. Conn Co., of Elkhart, Indiana, and we claim that there
is no other band in the west having a set of instruments like ours. Last
August, the Professional Musicians of the United States presented our
Professor C. Tonolli with an elegant, double bell Euphonium, which
instrument took the First Prize at the World's Fair at St. Louis. It is a
silver plated instrument, with gold plated bells, very handsomely engraved
and set with jewels. The mouth-piece alone is worth $50.
