Police Hold Father and Son to
Explain to the Judge.

John Brown, father, and Walter Brown, his son, were arrested on Kansas avenue in Armourdale yesterday afternoon and locked up at No. 3 police station on a charge of carrying concealed weapons and disturbing the peace.

The Browns were supplied with a full equipment of cowboy clothing, from high heeled boots to high crowned and wide brimmed hats. When booked at the police station they told Sergeant Patrick Lyons that they were straight from Galveston, Tex., the country where every man protects himself from harm by carrying a gun. The sergeant told them it might be all right to protect oneself with a gun in Texas, but that they were in Kansas now, so he would let the judge settle the question.
