The Heavenly Kecruits, who meet every evening aud hold services in the hall over the post office, have been an- noyed at various times by roughs, who behave in an unseemly manner. The, pastor aud members have borne this sort of thing long enough and so when Hus- sell Me.Veagh, William 15owau and au- other young man attempted to disturb their meeting on Monday evening, the Recruits resolved to have them arrested. McVeagh and Kowan not only talked aloud, but on being rebuked by the door- keeper oue of them turned ami struck him a Wow in the face, and then using profane language to Kev. Mr. Trumbauer, left the half. Warrants were procured and JIcYeagh and Rowan were arrested yesterday and taken before Mayor For- who held them in bail to ap- J pear at court. At last accounts they still hunting security. will not compromise this said Kev. j Mr. Trumbauer..

They called on a number of parties .and found them perfectly willing to accede to tlie committee's request. Some places still keep open and efforts will be made to get these places closed.
