Another Chapter In the Life of tho Chicago Dogberry and Ills lost Watch, Ho Accuses a Rospcctablo Citizen of Stealing the Judicial Tlmo-Plcco. 1 Another of Mr. Justice Banyon’s Btraogo doings while under tho inlluouco of liquor has oomo to light. It is oven moro outrageous than any other of his maudlin nets, because it Imo boon a source of groat trouble and annoyance to one of our oldest, best known, and most roipoot od citizens. In The Tribune of yesterday it was slated that Canyon was oven In tho gam* bling-bouso of the notorious John Lawlor. Ho was so drunk thou that ho could neither speak intelligibly nor carry himself and tho gomblors called upon tho proprietor to remove him. In order to got rid of him quietly, Lawlor invited him out to Imvo supper. Thoy wont to Tom Andrews’ chop-house, be tween Dearborn and Clark streets, In tho alloy north of Madison street. They bad boon seated but a short time before tho hiccoughing and driveling Judge began to speak about the loss of a gold watch, which was presented to him by some of bis admirers a mouth or two since, and which was undoubtedly stolon by ouo of the donors. In order that tbo last indecent act of Mr. Jus tice Canyon may bo thoroughly understood, it is necessary to go back to tbo time when tbo watch was stolon. That fact was published In Tub Tribune on tho following morning, but additional particulars bavo since looked uuU TLo night of tiio robbery, B»nyon boarded a Cottage Grove avenue car somewhere on Twenty-second street. The oar was almost empty, but “ His Honor ” was exceedingly full. Ho bad scarcely tumbled into a seat before he was sound asleep and nnoring. While In this condition, tbo watch was taken from him. The driver observed two men got off tbo car in tbo vicinity of Harrison street, and it is more than likely that they wore tho thieves. It is also more than likely that thoyworo largo subscribers to tbo fund with which tbo timo-pioco was pur chased, aud that their object In stealing It was to mako it useful in. case either of thorn should got into trouble with tho pollco, and bo brought boforo tbo Court over which Canyon is supposed to preside. Tho worthy Justice should bavo alighted from tbo car at Harrison street, os bis roaidonco is situated on that thoroughfare, but bo continued ■to sleep peacefully, ana snoro- calmly until the . turn-table at tbo Lake street end of tbo route was reached. Tbo sudden jolt which announces that tbo oar is again boadod for tbo southern terminus of tbo lino aroused him. Ho got on his foot as best ho could, stared about him with a vacant expression of countenance, and said, “Bless ray soul!' whore ami?” Then ho felt for tho “ expression of ostoom" presented to him by bis numerous friends. It is noodloss to remark that bo didn’t fiend it. About this timo the turn-tablo was tho econo of a lively commotion, in which tho Judge, aud tho drivor, and tho starter, and tho passengers, and tho car, and tho horoo woro indiscriminately mixed up. Tho judicial voice was raised to a terrible pitch, aud tho judicial whistle was ap plied to the judicial lips, and blown upon several times for tho purpose or summoning policomon to look for tho lost watch. Banyon himself mounted tho stop of tho car, and refused to al low any person in or out until tho vehicle was searched. Tom Andrews happened to bo out rather lato with a friend that night, and when tho Judge whistled for help ho was standing at tho corner of Madison aud Stato streets waiting for a cor and talking to a policeman. As soon as tho lot ier heard tho whietloho rushed off in tho direc tion whence it camo, leaving Mr. Andrews aloud. Tho car finally camo along, with Banyon stand ing on tho roar step, and oliuging to tho door, handle. Mr. Andrews attempted to enter, bat Banyon refused to lot him in until tho car could ho searched. Mr. Andrews said ho would ontor, search or no search, and, when Banyon hoard him speak, ho immediately recog nized him and offered no further objections. Further along on Stato street tbo Justice sum moned another squad of polico to bis aid, and wanted them to search tho passengers, but tho Sergeant very propprly refused. Tho Chief Justice then went homo. Now this is all Tom Andrews had to do with the loss of Augustus H. Banyan's “ token of respectyet that official disgrace to tho city, while in a slate of beastly intoxication on Thursday evening, accused him, in tho pres ence of four or flvo gentlemen who woro talcing supper in his restaurant, of having stolen his watch. Mr. Andrews was for tbo timo being rendered powerless and speechless by tho charge, and by tho timo ho was enabled to com prehend Us full moaning Banyon bad loft. It was a lucky thing for him that ho retreated as soon as bo did. for Tom Andrews is apt to resent an insult in a terrible manner. Tho mention of Mr, Andrews in connection •with the theft of a watch, after tho many honor able years ho has spent in this city, is sufficient to mako Banyoa tho laughing stock of tho ontiro com munity. It Is probable that this last outrageous act will bo brought to tho official notice of tho Common Council, in which event it whl undoubt edly result in the removal of a man who makes law a burlesque and justice a farco.
