THE CASES. The cases dismissed Thursday were those in which Joe Fernando, Sam Bourmut. Tony Rhodes and William Borola were arrested recently on charges of dispensing Intoxicating liquors In anti-saloon territory. The scene of their alleged infraction of the local option law was the "Patch," a certain quarter of Tower Hill occupied principally by foreign miners and lying Just outside- the village limits Because of this latter fact prosecution was Instituted by the atate'e attorney raher than he village officials, and Mr. Lowe went ahead -with the preparation of his cases with no other thought than that the township was "dry" territory by virtue of the local option election. As a result of that vote three saloons ceased to do business In Tower Hill, and since that time several accused violators of the local option law have pleaded guilty and accepted punishment. In his work preliminary to the trial of the four latest offenders, however.
