A Dance Disturbed and George Parrott Under Arrest

Last night Officer Borgman, the new policeman whose beat is in the Eighth Ward was summoned to the new house of Mr. Oetting on East Lewis Street where a dance was in progress. It appears that several young fellows came upon the scene and caused trouble. The officer arrested George Parrott and after some difficulty lodged him in the Station House. He then returned to arrest one of the fellows who interfered with him but the entire party had dispersed.

This morning Parrott retained John F.Rodabaugh to defend him. The charge preferred was trespass which Mr. Rodabaugh made a motion to quash. The case was set for Monday at 2pm, before the mayor. Perrott furnished bond for his appearance.

The city police authorities have decided to abandon the prosecution in the case of Mr. Leon Perrett who was under remand on a charge of unlawfully making photographs of the fortifications at Townsville. No reasons were assigned by the authorities for this action.

The photographic apparatus and other articles found in possession of Perrett have been returned to him. Mr.Perrett again appeared at the Police Court on September 5 when Inspector Durham stated that he wished to withdraw the charge.

Defendant’s counsel claimed professional expenses and stated that he had a letter from the Chief Secretary expressing regret at any inconvenience caused to the defendant. The police magistrate refused any costs and dismissed the case.
