Mrs. Patrick Donnelly complained to the police Saturday night that her husband's husband's saloon on Beech street was de spoiled of a keg of beer and that she strongly suspected that some members of the Uevine family, whose residenco is close by, purloined the keg. Officers Coslett and Walsh went to the residence Of the latter people and found Richard Devine and his two brothers, Thomas and William, in the house but the keg could not be round, and no inquiries were made as to the disposition made of the beer. The brothers emphati cally denied having stolen the beer. but the officers persisted in their search and finally located the empty keg oetween two Darns close at nana. The trio were then taken in custody, charged with larceny of the beer. Thomas Hughes was also arrested with the gang for being drunk, and auotber man named Moore escaped. When arraigned before the mayor yesterday noon the Devine brothers denied the theft, and were re manded until the officers could appear, Hughes, the drunken man of the party, was dischargea with a reprimand. Mrs. Donnelly claims the gang are a great annoyance to her, and she is determined on pushing the case this time.
