Begging on the Streets

Will Harris Arrested on Charge Yesterday – Fined in the Mayor’s Court.

Will Harris, whose home is where-ever he hangs up his hat, was arrested by police captain Grant yesterday on the charge of begging. Harris was found to be able bodied and husky enough to make a good farm hand, yet he solicited everybody he met for a few cents. He was fined a dollar and costs in the mayor’s court in lieu of which he was put on the streets.
