During the trial of the liquor cases in Jnstice Dnffy's court on Wednesday Attorney Brown got Detective Henry Cuthbert in a very unpleasant predicament during bis cross-exf.mination and accidentally dropped an intimation that before be was throngh with him be would have him in jail for an infraction of the liquor law. As soon after Mr. Reimold was disoharged as was possible be swore out a warratit against Cuthbert cbarging him with keeping a saloon open on Sunday contrary to law. This of course, was brought about by the sopreme oourt decisión that a man who persuades another to oommit a orimö' is equally guilty with the principal. Cnthbert did not wait to have the warrant served on bhu, nor did be wait for the regular evening train to Toledo, but he put out for Pittsfield Jnnotion and there awaited the coming of the train. Before it could arrive, however, Deputy Leeter Canfleld put in an appearanoe and seiving the warrant on him brought him back to the city and in default of bail lodged him in jail. Yesterday morning he was arraigned in Justice Duffy's court and his trial set for Jane 13. His bail bond was signed by Prof. Volney M. Spaulding and Dr. E. J. Brooks. Thus the spectacle is afforded of two members of the Anti-Saloon League going bail for the appearance in court of an alleged violatnr of the liquor laws and one who ran away to avoid arrest at that.
