(The first part of this article was not on my copy.)
          Anderson was arrested last Sunday morning at eight o'clock by Police Chief Haehl and Assistant Marsh, as he was walking through an alley in the east part of the city carrying a suit case which contained three quarts of whisky.
          The police chief and his assistant were the only witnesses for the state.  The defendant introduced a number of witnesses.  The state contended that the negro was carrying the whisky to the colored club rooms in East Jackson street for the purpose of there disposing of it in a manner contrary to the laws of the state.
          The thory[sic] of the defense was that there was no illegal purpose in mind, asserting that there was an arrangement whereby members of the club bought and paid for liquor, when Anderson delivered it, and he was in the act of doing so when apprehended by the police Sunday morning.
