The justice court of the Third township earned in fines during the year of 1913, the sum of $2025, the amount being more than twice the annual salary of the justice. However, the amount was not near as large as the year previous.

He was arrested for the offense on March of last year by Officer Brown and told to appear for trial, but disregarded the admonition, and did not come to Redwood City.
