Judge Shackelford shows sympathy for young man bringing whiskey into IT. - A little incident occurred in couit one day...
A little incident occurred in couit one day this week which shows the dispoiition of Judge Shackelford to deal out even-handed even-handed justice: .'V young man was arraigned and pleaded guilty to bringing a pint ol whisky into the 'ferrilory, being ignorant ol the law. In response to a question he said he was afilicted witli lung disease, and took a drink of mornings for medicine. The prosecuting witness had asked him lor a drink and after getting il swore out a warrant. "Wliy," the judge asked the Government attorney, "Wliy didn't you have those Congressmen who were here last summer arrested? 'fhey were treating around promiscuously and I guess you got a drink yourself." Walrond protested he did not, but the Judge's remark was greeted with sympathetic smiles by the spectators. The young man was fined one dollar without iniprisonment. But woe to any one who will presume on this incident to import an "original package." a
