Could not Punish her.
--John T. Hicks
, who keeps a shoe store on Cary street, again had Mrs. Elizabeth Jeter
before the Mayor
on the charge of being a person of evil fame and reputation, and for fusing violent and obscene language towards him. Hicks
's witnesses failed to substantiate the charge, while the Mayor
's police, who had been sent to ascertain the character of Mrs. Jeter
's house, testified to her proper department and satisfied His Honor that she was not a nuisance to the neighbors.
Her discharge was received with great satisfaction, and Mrs
. J., who had an interesting babe in her arms, assured the Mayor
that in future she would avoid such unpleasant predicaments as she had just been released from.
