" Once upon a time," m Adelaide, a peeler having peeled off his coat and helmet, was standing in front of a piano in the back parlor of the Newmarket Inn, then kept by a man named Williams. He was yelling open-mouthed one of the then - latest abortions of music-hall literature-''Johm^y, make room for your uncle," or something of that sprt. Through the half-open window he was seen by the sergeant of that beat and a Senior Constable, .who were going the rounds. These wepe not quite certain of their man, because he was in his shirt sleeves!; so they decided not to disturb his Vocal performance, but to wait until he came out and then pounceripbrit him. The Newmarket Inn is at the.corner of two boundaries of Adelaide-which was surveyed (roughlyj as a square mile-North "arid West Terrace., two side entrances and no back get-away.
