Brooklyn's new police court opened this morning.  The court is at the corner
of Vanderbilt and Myrtle Avenues.  Henry F. HAGGERTY is the justice.  The
court room was profusely decorated with flowers, sent to the Justice by his
many friends and admirers.  

The first man brought before the bar was John HARNETT, of 53 Kosciusko St.
 He was charged with intoxication and sent up for one day.  The first woman
up before Justice HAGGERTY was Mrs. Elizabeth ATKINSON, who claims to live at
136 North First Street.  She was sent to Raymond Street jail until Thursday,
to give time for the Commissioners of Charities and Corrections to examine
into her sanity.

The Justice's assistants are John H. STEENWERTH, chief clerk; Fred C. GROSS
and John J. O'NEIL, assistant clerks; John J. NORTON, stenographer, and J.

Bridge Policeman John BURNS was a prisoner in the Oak St. Station, New York,
last night.  Policeman HEFFERNAN, of the Fourth Precinct, arrested him at the
Catherine St. ferry last evening, upon the complaint of Lizzie MC CROVY, of
133 Madison St.  She charged him with having insulted her while in a state of
intoxication and went to the station house to make her charge before the
sergeant at the desk.

Burns was relieved from his post at 8 o'clock and going to the headquarters
of the Bridge police, reported, and took the Catherine St. for home.  He
lives at 136 West Twenty-eighth St. New York.  The MCCROVY woman was on the
ferryboat, and all the way across he is accused of using insulting language
to her.  Several of the passengers noticed that the man was under the
influence of liquor.

Burns was taken to the Tombs police court this morning and arraigned before
Judge White but the plaintiff did not appear to press charges.  


Mr. James JOHNSON, of 136 Calyer Street, went to the Ewen St. police court
this morning and swore out a warrant for the arrest of her brother, John
CLARK, who, she claimed, tried to kill her Saturday night.

Mrs. JOHNSON, told Chief Clerk EARLE, that her brother was a much-married
man.  She alleged that Clark was married in London about ten years ago, but
only lived with his wife two weeks.  Mr. JOHNSON said CLARK was subsequently
married in Scotland, and divorced from his second wife a year later.  The
Mrs. JOHNS claims CLARK came to New York and went to line in a Harlem
boarding house.  There he met a policeman's daughter to whom he was
subsequently married.  They lived happily for a while but he left after a
year.  Mrs. JOHNSON says further that he went to Chicago.  When he returned
to east he married a woman in Greenpoint who had him arrested for abandonment
last week.
