"Any business in your court, today?" was the question the reporter fired at Justice Butts, yesterday morning, in his room, where four officers lingered and the prosecuting attorney was just going out of the door. "Only about four hundred and fifty vagrants," replied the justice, "we have just given three of them five days in jail and released four." The seven vags who had been arrainged together had been captured in Michigan Central box cars. They claimed to hail from half as many states. And they didn't like stone yard diet a little bit. In the same court, at about the same hour, carne Mrs. Rosina Oelkrug to appear against her husband, Frederick Oelkrug, on the charge of assault and battery. A little investigation showed that he was probably insane and an officer took him in charge, while the matter was brought to Judge Babbitt's attention.
