Beer glasses fly at Christening.
A belligerent hobo, operating between Menlo and Willapa last Friday, frightened so many women that Sheric Bell was called to the rescue. The hobo had a big Luger gun, which he flourished at several houses when asking for food. He was picked up at Giesy's crossing and taken before Justice Dorrien, who sentenced him to thirty days in the county jail. The fellow, who was an exceedingly tough looking character, gave his name as Joe Bush, and said he was a Bulgarian.
Henry Mosonis and his wife, Mary Mosonis, were arraigned before Justice Dorrien last night for assault on Annie Dolidanos. The trouble occured at a Polish christening last Sunday, when the guests began pouring beer on one another. Finally beer glasses came into play, and Mrs. Mosonis threw one and struck Mrs. Doladanos and cut her.
