Justice Giberson is making a great name for himself with the police. His way of presiding over police court is a terror to evil doers and violators of the law generally. He will accept no excuse for either drunkenness or vagrancy and well says that there is no excuse for any man being out of work in Cedar Rapids now. Thomas West and Joe Slaven were up before his honor this morning, one charged with drunkenness and the other vagrancy. They were each fined $20 and costs.
