will be made and some action taken by the police to break up some alleged disorderly houses in the section of the city called East Raleigh was hinted during the trial of Ada King a white woman who plead guilty to the charge of running a disorderly house at yesterday's session of the police court The King woman was sentenced to six months in the work house this judgment being suspended with a proviso of good behavior for two years and payment of the costs The names of about a dozen witneases appeared on the warrant but none went on the stand In the course of the trial Judge Harris made it

that the police will not find her with any amount over the limit prescribed by law One policeman said that he searched this woman's house Just as soon as a new shipment of beer was placed in the house and found ust 47 bottles This way of escaping arrest he stated is only one of the many means that suspected violators have to circumvent any action on the part of the police A case against Jack Collett charged with running his auto with muffler open was not prossed upon recommendation of Chief Walters This man was running his engine on Fay etteville street and it was found that it was
